The Liow-Wee MCA leadership which had been in control of the “7-11” party for the past two months is probably the worst in terms of lack of principles and convictions in the 65-year MCA history, orchestrating political statements and moves even the least honorable past MCA leaders would not do.
Today, the MCA newspaper Star carried a big story entitled “MCA dares Kit Siang to explain fear of confronting UMNO” stating that “MCA wants DAP to publicly explain why he is afraid of directly offending UMNO” over the DAP National Vice Chairperson and MP for Teresa Kok’s controversial “Onederful Malaysia CNY 2014” video – which thanks to groups like UMNO, MCA and Gerakan making a hue and cry has received over 650,000 hits on YouTube in less than three weeks.
Instead of personally making charges against me, the Liow-Wee leadership got a lowly flunky to issue the statement so that both Liow Tiong Lai and Wee Ka Siong can disclaim responsibility for the lies, innuendos and insinuations in the statement.
What a pathetic Liow-Wee MCA national leadership who only dare to throw stones from being curtain and stupid enough to believe that their involvement could be kept secret.
Why Liow or Wee dare not put their name to the MCA statement today challenging me to “explain fear of confronting UMNO”?
Because they know it is a stupid statement which could be shred into tatters for its lies and baseless innuendos and insinuations!
The statement of the lowly MCA flunkey said my “apparent fear (of UMNO) was reflected in the way he had attacked MCA over DAP’s Teresa Kok video” and that my accusation that MCA was behind UMNO’s criticism of the video was “unwarranted”, declaring: “Lim is blaming MCA out of desperation because he is afraid of UMNO”.
There was also the accusation that I had not “directly criticized UMNO” ever since the controversial video was uploaded on YouTube.
Are Liow and Wee prepared to end their political cowardice and declare that this attack on me in the name of the lowly MCA flunkey have their full authorization and endorsement so that I could give a proper reply, as it would otherwise not worth any attention when it is a statement which the MCA President and Deputy President would not even give their public blessings.
I am fully prepared to reply to the wild and baseless allegations, lies, innuendoes and insinuations in the statement of the lowly MCA flunkey provided that Liow and Wee give their full endorsement to the statement.
I await response from the new Liow-Wee leadership of the “7-11” political party in Barisan Nasional. Their silence would be a very eloquent answer indeed!
