DAP's latest moves which seems to be veering towards the Chinese community's far right could very well be early signs that Pakatan will soon no longer be as we know them.
The three latest major moves by DAP were -
1. their insistence that they are more Chinese than MCA during the debate between Guan Eng and Soi Lek. It was Guan Eng who insisted for the debate to be in Mandarin,
2. spearheading the anti-Lynas demonstration which was the first ever of its kind in recent memory dominated by Chinese protesters and backed by Chinese-own media,
3. declaring open support to the upcoming Dong Jiao Zong's Save Chinese Education rally which bring back the memory of the infamous Operasi Lalang of the mid-1980s.
Perhaps DAP, which I always believe to be smarter than their Pas and PKR friends have seen the writing on the wall - that they are not likely going to take over Putrajaya in the coming general election.
The non-Chinese voters are coming back to BN. That's a fact which they cannot deny. My simple calculation is that, at the moment, BN is almost certain to win a simple majority in Parliament. A huge final push and no more major screw-ups will make it not impossible anymore for the coalition to get back their two third majority.
So, the next best thing DAP could do with such an outcome in sight was to get as many seats as they can by capitalising to the max their current popularity among the Chinese.
Thus their clamouring of late on how Chinese they are, including of course how they love the Chinese education system, which was actually eradicated by their parent-party PAP of Singapore from that island republic.
It's quite obvious that DAP's Malay friends in Pas and PKR are losing ground. Kelantan, for instance may still be under Pas rule after the next general election, but the hard work by Mustapha Mohamad and friends may likely reward Umno with a lot of parliamentary and State seats from there this time around.
In Johor, where I am more fimiliar with, I can say for certain that the Malay elements of Pakatan will be wiped out. Johor DAP knows this and are now currently shifting their strategy by concentrating their efforts more in areas with large number of Chinese voters.
Their insistence on contesting in as many constituencies with large number of Chinese as possible, is an indication that they know that their Pas and PKR friends could not be counted on to deliver the goods. They definitely do not want to waste areas such as Gelang Patah with 52 per cent Chinese voters by giving in to the likes of that hapless Johor PKR chief Chua Jui Meng.
Whatever it is the outcome of the next general election, I am quite sure DAP will win a strategic victory, riding on its Chinese racialist back-up plan. This DAP's victory will however be at the expense of the Chinese community's long term interests and the country's race relations.
Dear Big Cat,ReplyDelete
You have been in a paranoid mood lately with several postings that give away your sense of insecurity of UMNO/BN seat losses in coming GE13.
A few financial analysts i know, local and overseas tracking Malaysia, tells me that the absolute 2/3 hegemony of BN era is coming to an end. It's a simple majority era now.
I can only say that your play of using the DAP racial bogey is tired old tricks la. The young voters don't respond to that anymore and they may even be influencing their parents...
Anyway, since you mentioned it, why don't you ask MCA HQ to release the transcripts of Chua Soi Lek's statements during the Debate with Lim Guan Eng last month. DAP has already done so with LGE's points immediately after the debate!
Chua Soi Lek's points are filled with Islamophobia and attacks on Islamic practices. I'm sure Johor Malays will be excited to hear what he said during the debate!
Time to stop playing the UMNO/BN double game of racial propaganda to the Malays & non-Malays through selective censorship...
Your desperations tells me you're not too confident on your own UMNO/BN support level at the moment. Tun Daim was being a sharp and sly fox with his analysis on GE13 that is full of caveats to the BN troops. Hehe.
Interesting times coming...

Dear Kluang girl,Delete
if I'm feeling paranoid, insecure, desperate, etc etc...I wouldn't be publishing this comment of yours, wouldn't I?
And if what I wrote here are just nonsensical ramblings of an Umno lackey, I don't think such a smart DAP girl like u will bother to drop by here to refute what I wrote, wouldn't you?
Well, nice try :)
Don't be angry la, Big Cat.Delete
Just pointing out my personal observation from one girl to another yeah...
~ Kluang girl
You are very quick to point others as Umno/BN in your comments. That's not the issue here. If its a fact, so be it. Why can't you let Big Cat say what he thinks coz anyway, it is his own blog. Since you are clearly Ultra Kiasu DAP fan, why are you here reading his blogs. It must be tempting and interesting to you.
Ah Kluang girl,Delete
I'm not angry at all la. In fact I'm quite honoured that such a seemingly clever girl like you make it a point to visit my blog rather regularly. If you are one of those Guan Eng's cybertroopers operating from Komtar, then you are defintely one of the best. So many low class one leh, from that gang. Cheers.
yes intresting time coming ...for the chinese.ReplyDelete
But for the malay it will status quo, dear kluang girl.
Chua Jui Meng will trounce Chua Soiled Lek in Johor. CSL only has 50 pct support from MCA, so how can he be a winnable candidate ? You think the Melayus will find him a hero in his DVD ? Go figure.ReplyDelete
We don't see a DAP victory. We see a Pakatan victory. Just like we curse UMNO, we don't curse Malays. Kapisch ?ReplyDelete
The urban Malays have lost faith in lyin', cheatin', stealin' UMNO. They will vote Pakatan. Only hope for UMNO is in the rural areas, so Kuching Besar better go from kampung to kampung to explain the greatness of his bosses.ReplyDelete
godfarter, u really need to learn from the smart Kluang girl on how to argue intelligently on DAP's behalf. Unlike her, your arguments got no class lar.Delete
Stealing got class meh ? Fitnah require class meh ? No wonder there are so many supporters of Shahrizat - she definitely got class. Zahid also got class meh ? Beating people up seems to be cheered by all the UMNO goons.Delete
BTW, Kuching Besar, I'm sure you read the rantings of a clown like Warrior 231 on Rocky's blog. He got class or not ? GodfatherDelete
goatfather, have u been drinking? u ok or not?Delete
Dear Big Cat,ReplyDelete
I'm just a casual internet cafe user like you too.
Still saving up to buy my own laptop.
Never been to Komtar before but hope to before i go to off for further studies... Hehe
Anyway, i have earlier already congratulated you on your projected big win for UMNO/BN in GE13. ;-)

Dear Kluang girl,Delete
sorry if I'm wrong about you. Well, u have to do what u have to do, and I have to do what I have to do....hehehe
Anyway, I'm also planning to further my studies after the general election. In case u r furthering your studies in Taiwan, maybe we can meet there.
I think we can be good friends if not for all these political nonsense, ya :)
god father & kluang girlReplyDelete
your comments only represent one vote each.
no need to comment so many
Of course must comment many cos there are many wrongs and so few rights. One person one vote is clear - that's why Bukit Bintang has 100,000 voters while one small Felda scheme as 5000 voters. Whilst you and I supply one MP each, I am entitled to scream 20 times more than you mah....Delete
then go and scream in the jungle like tarzan mah...Delete
Why do you want a 2/3 majority BN government??...so that more NFC's, medini's etc can take place???...ok, its your preference, but for me and my friends, we DO NOT want anymore 2/3 federal government....be it BN or PR, period!!ReplyDelete
I didn't say I want it, I said it could happened. Read carefully ya.Delete
