Why so much fear?

By Lucius Goon | The Malaysian Insider

OCT 21 — The Chinese are scared about hudud and have become wary of the DAP’s marriage with PAS, says Chua Soi Lek.

The Malays dislike DAP, says Najib Razak.

So I say: what is the problem, then?

The coming elections should be a walkover with an easy victory for Barisan Nasional. No reason for Najib and BN to lose sleep because the rakyat are with the BN.

Or at least that should be the case if what has been said by BN leaders at the MCA AGM is truthful.

I have no idea what the voter sentiment is at the moment but I do sense that one name seems to strike fear into BN and it is not Anwar. It is DAP.

Can’t understand why, because going by what Soi Lek and Najib said, two of the largest constituents of voters in Malaysia either are suspicious of DAP or hate the DAP.

In addition, going by the logic of what has been said, our elections should have been long over by now.

    The problem with BN strategy is that its inconsistent. It says one thing to the Chinese and then another to the Malays. The inconsistency this time is quite obvious making any gains possible from the negative campaigning and the fear mongering negate more than they gain in total..MCA negative campaigning gains less than they lose of Malays votes while Najib ranting gains less Malays than it loses in Chinese votes.

    It makes absolutely no sense and are the stuff of prodigal inheritors that have no clue what they are really doing..

    On why so much fear perhaps someone is determined not to be last PM according to the RAHMAN prophecy. If it’s later than 21st Dec 2012– predicted the day for end of the world according to Mayan apocalyptic calendar predictions – at least he’s the last without being the cause of it! On the other hand the other apocalyptic view of the year of 21st Dec 2012 is that an unexpected event like BN winning landslide with more than 2/3 may happen! :)

    Yeah, Najib should call the General Election tomorrow since he is satisfied that the Malays had enough of DAP.

    Mr PM, why don’t you send a Malay candidate to the Seputeh constituency this upcoming GE to prove that BN multiracialism is well accepted by the Chinese there instead of complaining that DAP only contests in Chinese majority areas.

    Najib talk talk talk completely nonsensical stuffs day in day out.
    The fact that he dares not have the 13th GE shows he knows Muslims are supporting all PR parties.
    When have we ever sen a PM….keep talking politics non stop…except Najib.

    NAJ1B Gor should stand in a multiracial ‘1Malaysia’ seat to show that he has wide and broad-based support. Otherwise he should just shut-up.

    The fear is very real. I have been receiving SMS(es) asking me which group (PR or BN) I think is better. The survey is purportedly conducted by 3rd party. No need to spend so much money to conduct expensive surveys if you have done your homework. You do good for the welfare of the people you will be rewarded. Incidentally I do not bother to reply to such SMS(es) and I would advice all others to also ignore such SMS(es).

    Its true the fear DAP but the issue is who they disrespect Negative campaign really is about expoilting groups they disrespect either because they think they are ignorant and pliable or because they will do whatever they are told.

    Essentially MCA think DAP cannot attack them on Hudud because they are also not for it. But they also think UMNO (including Perkasa) will help deliver their Malay votes for them in mix-constituency no matter what they say to the Chinese.

    Its a challenge for DAP to cross into Malay constituency as well as for PKR and PAS to rally the Malay votes against them.. This whole Hudud thing is really about disrespecting Malays and in truth racist.

    I saw several idiots with their cars wrapped in the silly looking red umno flag over the weekend. Not many. Certainly no more than 3 or 4 of them throughout my journey from PJ to the curve and then to kajang.

    BTW, was there any plan by umno to flood the city in red? Anyone, any idea? If there was then the really really sparse incidences of red I saw demonstrate the plan’s failure by a grave margin.

    You tend to drag your feet when you are not sure of your standing or the fact of a colossal defeat stares in your face every time you think you have the upper hand.

    Najib for all his bravado would have called for snap elections if he really believed in the opinion polls which give him fantastic lead against his opponents.

    He knows that even all his squandering of the nation’s wealth in buying votes is not going to win him the elections. On top of that he really fears the RAHMAN prophesy.
