UMNO/MCA “Devil’s Compact” confirmed by Mahathir within 24 hours

Yesterday, I publicly said that MCA and UMNO leaders have reached a “Devil’s Compact” for each side to tell the most blatant lies and falsehoods to frighten Chinese and Malay voters respectively in their desperate belief that such politics of hate and duplicity is the only way to stampede Chinese and Malay voters to vote for Barisan Nasional in the 13th General Election.

I had expected MCA and UMNO leaders and their propagandists to embark on prolonged polemics to deny the existence of such an unholy compact and to throw up all sorts of “red herrings” to distract attention from the “Devil’s Compact”.

What I least expected was for my expose of UMNO/MCA’s “Devil’s Compact” to be confirmed within 24 hours in a most authoritative fashion and in a manner completely disarming and stripping the MCA and UMNO leaders and propagandists bare of their wiles and hypocrisies.

There is only one person who could perform such a feat – Tun Dr. Mahathir and this was exactly what he did yesterday.

At a media conference yesterday at the Universiti Malaya symposium “Inter-civilisation dialogue towards peace, harmonious co-existence and sustainability”, Mahathir admitted that MCA’s “hardline stance” against hudud law at last weekend’s MCA General Assembly was merely aimed at “scaring” the Chinese community and was not aimed at the Malays or Muslims.

Mahathir said:

“Their purpose is to frighten the Chinese, not the Malays or Muslims… MCA wants to scare the Chinese so they will shun DAP.

“In the past, MCA never objected when we declared this country to be an Islamic state and that we will practice Islamic values.”

Yesterday, in a written reply in Parliament, the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Senator Datuk Sri Jamil Khir Baharom said that if hudud laws are implemented in Malaysia, they will not have any implications on non-Muslims.

The MCA President Datuk Seri Dr. Chua Soi Lek and the four MCA Ministers should explain whether Jamil’s answer represents the stand of MCA in Cabinet and the Barisan Nasional, and if not, what are they going to do about it.

Mahathir’s confirmation that UMNO and MCA have a “Devil’s Compact” where each side can tell the most blatant lies and falsehoods to respectively frighten Malay and Chinese voters and stampede them to vote for Barisan Nasional deserve the serious attention and strongest condemnation of all Malaysians.

In their “Devil’s Compact”, UMNO leaders keep their silence regardless of the lies disseminated by MCA leaders “to scare the Chinese”, including falsehoods which UMNO leaders know are utterly baseless, such as MCA defamation of PAS and Islam for condoning rape of non-Muslims or for trying to set Malaysia back to the “Dark Ages”.

Similarly, MCA leaders keep their silence although they do not believe UMNO lies and falsehoods “to scare the Malays”, that DAP wants to create a Christian Malaysia, abolish the Malay Rulers and set up a Republic!

I am reminded of a general surgeon’s blog yesterday commenting on the 59th MCA General Assembly, who concluded:

“In fact the MCA General Assembly may have struck the final nail to its coffin as to most Malaysians, the MCA has become irrelevant, so is Gerakan, MIC and to some extent Umno. The demise of these race based parties may be a blessing in disguise as we need multi-racial parties to move forwards to survive in a globalized and highly competitive world.”

This is the greatest challenge for all Malaysian voters in the 13GE, whether we are to move forwards as Malaysians with a common vision of hope and optimism that Malaysians united as one people regardless of race, religion, class or territory is the best guarantee for the country to stand tall to compete with the rest of the world or we allow ourselves to wallow in the politics of corruption and greed sowing inter-racial and inter-religious hatred, suspicion and distrust through lies and falsehoods which will only condemn the country to the trajectory of a failed state.

Pakatan Rakyat stands for the former to unite all Malaysians to forge a common destiny while Barisan Nasional stands for the latter, persisting in its “divide-and-rule” tactics among the different racial and religious groups to continue to serve the interests of the Umno-putras and their cronies.

Let the demise of the race-based parties reach its high-water mark in the 13GE.

Pakatan Rakyat stands for the future while Barisan Nasional represents the past!

    It is just honestly amazing they think they can get away with such blatant contradiction. Do they think just because not everyone is on the internet yet, there are no other ways people get their news for example word of mouth?

    It simply is incredible they think they can pull of such a pathetic lie.

    What is amazing so many people in MCA, Gerakan, UMNO let their leaders get away with such hair-brain scheming. Are they political parties with serious members or they cults incapable of tying their own shoes-laces?

    What a sick man who feels no shame is dying….what do you expect him to say…”god forgive all my sins”??
    No he keeps on lying….hoping his son will learn to lie like him.
    Chua Soi Lek knows MCA will be defeated….like 12th GE…and Umno B will be reduced to become the Opposition….hoping one day…BN will rise up again victorious.
    Chua Soi Lek is dreaming to be a multi-millionaire…a Minister.. with Najib still voted in as PM ….thus his polishing shoes technique must improve too.

    ///Mahathir said: “Their purpose is to frighten the Chinese, not the Malays or Muslims… MCA wants to scare the Chinese so they will shun DAP…In the past, MCA never objected when we declared this country to be an Islamic state and that we will practice Islamic values.”///

    What TDM implies is that MCA’s statement is to raise PAS’s hudud to scare Malaysian Chinese from supporting DAP whilst at the same time MCA is not really against against UMNO/Mahathir’s stand that this country is Islamic state based on Islamic values, and if Jamil Khir Baharom’s words were taken at their face value UMNO’s support of Hudud as well to the extent as applied only to Muslims. This implication of “to frighten” based on what TDM says is that MCA is ourt to manipulate and deceive Malaysian Chinese voters (whose interests it is supposed to protect and represent) on Hudud issue. With supporters and well wishing friends like TDM, Ibrahim of Perkasa and Alvin Tan saying CSL is his hero, does MCA need enemies???

    All these politicians are distorting reality and peddling fear amongst the segment they target for votes for their political ends of surviving the next GE. It arises from their own fear of political defeat in the next GE. It gives the cue that wahtever the ballot outcome, they are unwilling to concede defeat. Not even until Hell freezes over.

    MCA should realise that scare monering tactics will work better on conscious and sublimal levels if the fear message is clear and uncontradicted. It cannot work when supporters like TDM/Perkasa, in their zeal to buttress its position, give conflicting signals that reinforce, in the reverse, an affirmation of your lackey and subservient position disrespected by the vote market segment it targets…especially if this segment is relatively educated and has narrowed the gap between what they know and what the MCA’s leaders/strategists know. MCA should not fear so much. Its big brother will never allow the election to be lost, come what may. That I am reasonably confident.

    Never in the past history….MCA applying low class scaring tactics ….copying Najib wholesale.
    And never in the history of all MCA Presidents.. under UMNO b have boasted so much….lied so much…trying to fool Malaysian Chinese so much… as what CSL is doing now.
    Unbelievably….he dares to utter that Malaysian Chinese are supporting MCA more than DAP now.
    If so…why CSL needs to blow his own trumpet?
    And so…Najib said..Muslims are supporting him..CSL said Malaysian Chinese are supporting MCA…and MIC President {forgot his name} also said Malaysians Indians are supporting MIC.
    What the heck!!….so much supports….what is Najib waiting for??.

    It is still not too late to abandon the BN sinking ship. Component parties should grab their life vests now and jump. The BN ship is definitely sinking so save yourselves before you sink with it.

    Keptan Naj1b is heading straight for the rocks. He’s a goner. Only his own devils can save him but they can’t and won’t.

    mr lks, that is not a nice statement to make of mca/umno’s pact. we the rakyat know it. if you can just carry on exposing the wrongdoings of bn and injustice done to rakyat, that would be job done for you.

    Yes. He should have just said that: ‘There was a meeting of evil minds between two corny and horny people to scare the sh*t out of the people by twisting and turning and not telling the truth’.
