Deliver votes, not crowds, MCA

JULY 12 — MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek boasted today his party could match Bersih 2.0’s crowd in last weekend’s rally calling for clean and fair elections.

“To gather ten or twenty thousand to demonstrate is nothing great. MCA can organised 50,000 if you want me to do it, anytime,” he told reporters at Wisma MCA here today.

But the veteran politician dismissed their cause, saying “We should not demonstrate for very flimsy reasons, that the electoral roll is tainted and not clean.”

Oh, really?, to paraphrase Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir’s stinger on a radio show last week.

When is rallying for clean electoral rolls a flimsy issue? Or is MCA saying that tainted electoral roll isn’t a big deal?

Is the focus now about flexing muscles and flooding the street to show who has more support?

While the party wasn’t under Dr Chua’s leadership in Election 2008, he has to remember that MCA did badly and has been derided by its main ally Umno for the inability to draw support or votes.

Of course, anyone can bring people to the streets. Bersih did it despite all the road blocks, the lack of public transport and the fear that the riot police will send them packing home.

But if that is Umno and MCA’s cause, then they are unclear on the concept of what they are all about. Instead of boasting that they can bring people to the streets, both should look at getting support to win the next general elections.

Because Bersih has cost them some support. Denigrating that cause will cost them the solid middle class vote that has always supported them in past elections.

One question. What would MCA rally for if it moves 50,000 people to take to the streets? Its time to go past rhetoric and help Barisan Nasional get back its two-thirds parliamentary majority.

Not time to make noise after the fact.

    This egoistic has-been politician also claimed that there was weak Chinese support for the rally. In his haste to curry favoiur and show his UMNO bosses that MCA can still muster Chinese support, he fails to see that the general Chinese voters are a lot smarter and politically savvy that he gives them credit for. The Chinese are deliberately keeping a low profile for this rally so as not to give any excuse for Perkasa and their ilk to turn it into a racial issue. The Chinese deliberately wants the BN Govt to see and fear that it is a Malaysian affair uniting all races and NOT a Chinese dominated rally. We all know that UMNO is waiting for this to become a racial issue so that they can pull out all the dirty tricks of ISA and Emergency rule as they did in 1969. The rakyat are not going to fall for the same old trick and only the MCA is either too dumb or too blinded to see this.

    This lapdog seems to be sleeping. It is not merely gathering 10-20,000 people, it is gathering them, despite mobilizing the whole Malaysian police force against them. Soi Lek better go and sleep or better still, create for us another video for our entertainment, LOL.

    This cok-talker and mama-topper is disgraceful for winning Chinese supports and heart of his master UMNO! That’s right, you could bring 50,000 on the streets are those hookers from all over the world with $$$.

    I wish Chua would contest in any one of the dap-held parliamentary seats in Penang in the coming 13GE. Then he would see for himself whether the chinese support him and mca’s lapdog policies.

    CSL,have you kept quiet,at least you are ‘safe’ for a while.But now you have invited unnecessary attacks and ‘hantam’ from everywhere.Serve you right, a no moral spineless,running dog.You and LTL and the three eunuch and selfish board members of Tung Shin Hospital who denied the water cannon and tear gas attack on the hospital by the police are real scumbags.

    This guy is plain stupid. Enough said.

    If he were to be renamed “Chua-Sai” many include uncle Chua Chui Ming will agree!
    He must learn from his many ex-presidents in the party and too green to imagine.Still comparable worst than KJ who had led few hundred at least down on the lane though.
    People really will laugh if seeing him with 50,000 during the rally rubbing his eyes and cry for his Mommy or Mom Ros!
    Just talking like his Boss that 6.5 Millions chinese seemingly support his untrue claims.

    So long for the acting.

    CSL can gather crowds only upon turning himself into a Santa Claus or CNY’s “chai seng ye” (God of Prosperity).
