Who have conned the Chinese in Malaysia?

CPI introduction

We are reproducing below an excerpt from a former MCA insider who has left the country for good. The excerpt is from his letter responding to a request from his friend asking him to consider a return to Malaysia.

The excerpt provides a personal but important perspective of the role of non-Malay parties in the Barisan Nasional. It has been reproduced with the consent of the writer whose identity we’re withholding.

An article from The Star provides the background to this disclosure.

YONG PENG: DAP’s long-term political agenda is to join Barisan Nasional in a bid to protect its supreme position in Penang, said MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.

“DAP politicians are like any other politicians, for them it is the thirst for power.

“Penang has limited resources and how long can (Penang Chief Minister) Lim Guan Eng tender his land?” Dr Chua said, adding that the DAP hoped to see the MCA disappear and be replaced in Barisan.

He urged the Chinese community not to be conned by the Opposition party.
(extract from the newspaper on Aug 4)

Excerpt from letter by the MCA insider

From my experience with MCA and the people whom I had worked with in the party, I can only say that most of them (from Lee San Choon, Koon Swan, Liong Sik, Kim Sai, Ka Ting, Tee Keat and all the other people at federal and state level) KNOW that the Chinese in Malaysia is not ever going to be in a position to influence the direction of how the country is to be governed, i.e. to say anything that affects MAJOR policies.

There’s just this denial syndrome that non-Umno parties are just there for window-dressing; so the next best thing to do is scoop up the scraps Umno throw their way… except Taib and PBB who take the lion’s share as well!

From the many, many sessions of central committee meetings and brainstorming, seminars, courses, etc, the one main thing to emerge is to only defend or safeguard Chinese position in education and economic sectors … we’re down to TAR College, Utar and Chinese business interests which, sad to say, …is playing to Umno whims and patronage… macam crony business.

The rest in the SME (small and medium industries) can pray to God and hope to survive and are at the mercy of the idiots who run the bureaucracy.

There is NO hope ever under Umno that Chinese position will improve because the OVERRIDING philosophy since May 13 is that non Malay/Muslims are to be assimilated (much like the Borg in Star Trek).

That is why MCA is always fighting ghosts; Umno is always lying, even when the truth is exposed about their true intention.

MCA people know this and pretend to fight for Chinese when they know they are only protecting their personal interests/financial gain, through Umno patronage.

The BN was never a coalition; it is and always has been an illusion created by Umno to present an imaginary front to the world that the people represented by the various races and parties support them.

[Our elites] cheat and bribe their way in elections and steal what they can, when they can, with impunity. They not only do that, they find ways to criminalise the victims!! That takes them ten levels above the Somali pirates!

To cut a long story short, and to answer your question about going back, even if Penang booms further under DAP, the short answer is NO; I’ve burnt my bridges … It’s just too hard to ever hope that they will ever understand the meaning of a civil society, let alone try to forge one in the years ahead, even if PKR takes over Putrajaya… my prediction is that the worst is yet to come. I hope I’ll be proven wrong in my lifetime.

Hudud has always been used as a weapon to frighten the Chinese and some extremists in PAS may have been used by Umno/Perkasa to split PKR, so MCA is just playing the propaganda game to try to win back some Chinese votes. Umno on the other hand is using [the Malay fear of] Chinese political power to frighten Malays.

    At Cabinet meetings, it is the UMNO Ministers who hold sway and determine the direction and policy that the other puppets must follow obediently.

    Which non-UMNO Minister has ever spoken out on issues (e.g. Section 114A) against UMNO?

    It is always an UMNO Minister who will make the statement after Cabinet meetings declaring that ‘the Cabinet has decided…’ when it should be ‘UMNO has decided’.

    Many ‘Cabinet decisions’ are just plain outright stupid and lacking in common sense, decency, natural justice and so on. No wonder we are in such a mess.

    No one really cares what Chua Soi Lek is saying except his party members.
    He is a low class tongue twisters and may I remind him…the old MCA under Tan Siew Sinn is totally different from the MCA under Mahathir.
    Guys like Siew Sinn got dignity and principles in life.
    Chua Soi Lek is a nobody and so is MCA to….a party rejected by voters at 12th GE.
    Chua is the lowest class MCA President ..a first class shoe shine boy to Najib.
    Only in Malaysia a thick skin man like him can be a President of a party and it must be a minority party to carry Najib sky high for personal gains.
    Chua Soi Lek is a NOBODY!! Period,

    The Whole MCA machinery has NEVER dare to mention about Corruption, why the little Chua tried hard, very hard to divert it , of all people the MB of selangor! LOL! As said, the crumbs from UMNO table seems better than dignity and pride. Even LLS dared not shout loud that PKFZ should be the responsibility of the Cabinet whose presiding JUDGE is of course the PM, who is more than equal to the rest. So shouldn’t he be held accountable? in any country around the world, the whole Gomen would have quit in shame. Not here! it is part of their daily routine. Now MCA is trying to frighten the Chinese Community on HUDUD; even though the Old fart claimed indeed he was the first to proclaim this nation was an Islamic nation, [ his version anyway] where even the State highest religious Chief [in Perak according to RPK] dare not say if corruption is haram! MCA can only help STAR to fill up those blamk pages, nothing more as the very community it claims to represent has literally ditched them in the Black Hole of calcutta since 308! To many of us, it is a gonna; just listen to the average Community members who frequent the Kopitiam in every towns and villages! This is their last breath, they will shout the loudest, let them as every creature has that right just before it is extinct!

    Johoreans too will dump them in GE13 – yup, dump those mca idiots. And when it happens that will be the end of mca. The smarter ones (not necessarily upright ones which is a rare commodity in today’s BN) will surely abandon the MCA ship come nearer the time.

    If everything points to UMNO as the trouble makers, dont the rest have the gall to stand up ? Or is the comfort zone stopping the “agrieved” from acting..???? You have to salute the Middle East countries, some African countries, the Sri Lankan Tamils and some of the Soviet states who stood up for their rights…..the problem is us….the problem is within…you stand up and be counted or just swallow the bitter pill and tag on…

    The other I heard from a mother that her son cried foul when his teacher gave him a Grade 3 [out of 6] in spite of the fact that he scored well above 90 for all his subjects in class. It certainly looks like, MOE is using the US school style when it is already proven that the US syllabus and approach at school level has failed their nation miserably! Here it is obvious that the application is done for political expediency! UMNO with the tacit of its partners is going to throw the future gebweration of this nation to the laggards of the world, let along in the ASEAN region! They purposely forget that such policy and actions will never drown a mind endowed by the CREATOR! Wee Kah Siong, what is your take on this?

    It is sad to know, MCA has claimed they have “thousands and thousands of chinese members” and yet they cant find anybody among those many many thousands of members with enough decent credentials to head the party. Instead they supported a guy with dubious character . What a shame and disgrace to the chinese community as a whole.
    The poor ex-president who has a bit of honesty, guts and integrity was kick out instead.
