68-Day Countdown to 13GE – Chua Soi Lek’s increasing irrelevance and hysteria with the approach of 13GE is really pathetic

It is really pathetic to witness the increasing irrelevance and hysteria of the MCA President, Datuk Seri Dr. Chua Soi Lek, to the extent that he has to publicly plead for MCA members to give “claps and applauses” to his speeches and those of other MCA leaders at MCA public functions like the recent MCA “mega dinners” held all over the country.

Chua made this plea at the Federal Territory 64th MCA anniversary celebrations luncheon in Kepong yesterday but to little effect, as all he got from MCA members attending the luncheon was a very tepid and half-hearted response despite his repeated pleas for applauses to his speech.

Chua even tried to mislead MCA members to fortify his plea –asking MCA members to emulate DAP by claiming that when DAP leaders speak on stage, DAP members on the floor would respond with ceaseless applauses to give the impression that what the speakers said were right. Similarly, he asked MCA members to do the same by giving warm applauses to MCA leaders when speaking on stage so as to create confidence in MCA.

Firstly, let me state that in my 47 years of political work, I had never pleaded for claps and applauses for my speeches – and that goes for all other DAP leaders as well.

Secondly, the simple answer to Chua is that it is not only the ordinary public, but also MCA members who are antagonized and alienated by the present role played by the MCA leadership as purveyors of falsehood and prophets of doom to help UMNO to frighten and stampede the Chinese voters to support the Barisan Nasional in the 13th general elections.

It is not only the overwhelming majority of thinking Malaysians, whether Chinese, Malays, Indians, Kadazans and Ibans, but the overwhelming majority of decent MCA members, who can see through the cowardice, dishonesty and hypocrisy of the politics of lies and falsehood perpetrated by MCA and UMNO leaders – with MCA leaders whose sole agenda is to frighten Chinese voters with the lies that DAP is a stooge of PAS while UMNO leaders doing the very opposite to frighten the Malay voters by alleging that PAS is a puppet of DAP.

Either the DAP is a stooge of PAS or PAS is a puppet of DAP. It is either one or the other, as both cannot be right. But both can be wrong. And in this case, both the conflicting and contradictory propaganda of MCA and UMNO are wrong – for both are just lies and falsehoods.

This is where Pakatan Rakyat differs in essence from Barisan Nasional. Barisan Nasional is only a coalition in name for UMNO imposes the “Listen, listen, listen” political culture with UMNO’s political hegemony undisputed in BN.

This why when the then Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad arbitrarily and unconstitutionally announced on Sep. 29, 2001 (the “929 Declaration”) that Malaysia is an Islamic state, the first to express public support were the top MCA and Gerakan leaders, even without getting a mandate from the MCA and Gerakan membership.

Chua and the MCA leaders have been screaming at their fake MCA “mega dinners” the lies and falsehoods that there would be trouble in Malaysia and that the country would go bankrupt if Pakatan Rakyat wins the 13th general elections and forms the Federal government in Putrajaya.

I have no doubt that the majority of MCA members regard such speeches as most irresponsible for Pakatan Rakyat victories in five states in the political tsunami of the 2008 general elections, particularly in Penang and Selangor, have proven that such prophecy of doom as utterly wrong and baseless.

I have no doubt that the majority of MCA members are also patriotic Malaysians who want to see political change for the first time in the nation’s history in 55 years to bring about a better tomorrow for all Malaysians.

I say good luck to Chua, for at this stage of Malaysia’s political development, he is helping to open more eyes to the politics of dishonesty, hypocrisy, lies and falsehood practiced not only by MCA but also by UMNO/Barisan Nasional when compared to any other MCA President before him.

    Chua Soi Lek is irrelevant. He will only forever be remembered as a porn star. What can he do?

    What would happen when umno pakatan takes over?

    A lot of BN ppl will be sent to prison. Some may be hanged for murder and treason if found guilty. And most of them would be fined for all sorts of crimes and wrongdoings.

    Yeah. That’s about it.

    The Chinese are a very intelligent and pragmatic race. It baffles me why some Chinese continue to support the MCA and BN who have made the Chinese a second class citizen.
    Yes, the Chinese are better off economically but that was achieved through their own sweat and toil not by BN handouts.
    Yes, sometimes they had to bribe their way through but then what choice do they have since the systems demands them to bribe government officials.
    MCA today is a dead duck. It’s time to prepare for its funeral rites.

    If MCA dinner is free, then at least give a small clap-lah. If attendees have to pay, then it is up to them whether to clap or not as they are only interested in the dinner and tokoks.

    Recently BN bypassed MIC to deal with HINDRAF directly. I think CSL is worried that BN will bypass MCA and liaise with the Chinese community directly. That is why he asked MCA members to give warm applause to MCA leaders when speaking on stage so as to create confidence in BN.

    A porn star’s worst fear is the failure to evoke any reaction from the audience.

    Soilek’s got a rather flaccid response, hasnt he?. I suppose that must count as something which surely is be better than nothing.

    Well give yourself a pat boy!

    This is one of the signs that a party is being deserted.

    If he is so fond of claps and applauses, why not have pre-recorded ones so that those who managed the stage lights and props can also broadcast such gratifying sounds based on hand signals from him?
    That way, he would not be lacking in getting such grudging accolades!!!
    That way, he would get such praises independent of the mood of his audience!!!
    Finally, all this frenzy signals only one outcome for UMNO/BN: THE END IS CLOSE AT HAND!!!!

    CSL has bought a one way ticket to Gaza together wiz Najis, date departure is ballot counting night, Mamakthir has chattered this flight and sell the ticket to all these stooges…..No guarantee of returning!

    The other day i over heard some people talking in a coffee shop and it goes like this…” SPR is asking its contractor to print stickers without serial number for it to be used on ballot boxes”………i wonder what stickers are they talking about.

    The only truth that ever came from him was from Batu Pahat. Same hotel, same room at that! What can we speak of this man? This prophet of false pretense along with that HP6 accountant son of his and the entire MCA would be given the loudest craps ever when the Chinese community wield their ‘Takow Pang’ sticks this GE13.

    A Kiasu CSL is acting like a bird frightened by a bow (惊弓之鸟).

    Yes, he crossed into pathetic a bit back ago – likely when he got his dull-headed child into his dirty business, and these days he is mostly pathetic. But the truth is the reason why he has not gotten his cuppenance is because UMNO/BN or likely just Najib is propping him up – he is staying afloat WITHOUT having to spend HIS ILL-GOTTEN assets and distanced from garbage which he rightfully belongs and arrogantly believes he will never have to..

    Its really a lesson how CSL and MCA are unaccountable to the community they say they represent. You really need to distance yourself to these people because they have absolutely NOTHING to do with you but merely exploit you..

    SoiLek is pathetic.

    Soi Lek is hysterical.

    Soi Lek is clueless.

    The solution, Soi Lek, is simply “Love the people”.
    Do good for the Rakyat; think of their welfare first.

    Not the pockets of MCA members or UMNO cronies or all those sugar mommies or mistresses.

    Love the Rakyat like Pakatan Rakyat.

    Support the Pakatan, my dear fellows. Support the PAS chaps. don’t fear them. These fellows are fond of expressing everything in terms of words borrowed from Arabia hundreds of years ago. They do not make a distinction between a religious discourse/religious terminology, on the one hand, and normal conversation on politics addressed to a multicultural/multi-religious audience. So, technically, you are a kafir, baby! You may feel uneasy, but do not be afraid. PAS fellows are honest and sincere fellows. Malaysia needs them.

    Same old tune being play over, over again. PATHETIC, trying forever to HOODWINK the public to safeguard YOUR own interests.
    ( Heh CSL, if you are not out in the public talking, talking as if you are so, so, ( an exemplary – Pui ! ) who bothers what you did before ( ie. your private affairs ) But, so thick skin ! no shame to assume more public ovation – if within your LOT / MCA , who bothers.
    ” Or Kui Kai Lau Yah ! ”
    No more UMNO balls for MCA to carry and polish!
    ie. comes G13 with ABU !!!
    (CSL, and no more backache having to carry bola-bola UMNO by then.)
    When they try to take us to HOLAN again, and again TELL THEM TO GO FLY-KITE !
