As I had feared in this posting Racial extremists endangering Chinese schools, the foolish decision by Dong Jong Zong to collaborate with the DAP in making several unreasonable demands, including some, which are outright racist in nature has put the Chinese schools and its system once more in serious danger.
For every action, there will be a reaction. Racist demands such as pressuring the government to immediately remove all non-Chinese speaking teachers from the schools will definitely backfires.
Now, the general perception among most non-Chinese (even among the majority of non-Chinese Pakatan supporters) is that the Chinese educationists are demanding for Chinese children to be educated totally within a Chinese environment.
That, if you ask me, is the end result of the stupid DAP-backed DJZ rally in Kajang that day.
And also, those who are against the existence of Chinese schools find it as an opportunity to renew their attacks and find faults with the Chinese education system.
The easiest target are the Chinese educationists themselves, many of whom are ill-equipped to deal with such attacks.
The first casualty is Dong Zong chairman himself whose credentials were put under the microscope here -
Dr Yap should resign if ..
Serves him right for using the Chinese schools, which he was supposed to protect, as a tool in DAP's fight against BN.
Dr Yap is now easily the symbol of Chinese chauvanism - a cheat, arrogant, boorish, narrow minded and racist. They don't say it out loud but, just look at Dr Yap's picture and think about his questionable doctorates from a university of ill repute which he has all these while proudly bandied to project himself as a leading Chinese educationist . He didn't even bother to get his cap ayam doctorates from China but got those from the USA.
Doesn't he now looks like all those labels ?
Well, that is the image of the Chinese educationists now. among many who previously did not care much about the Chinese schools issue.
Maybe Dr Yap and his gang don't care about all that. Go to hell with all these non-Chinese people, they may have thought. The Chinese are after all the political king maker in this country now. We can get whatever we want. We got DAP, the unifier of Malaysian Chinese, backing us what. See, the DAP people came in the thousands to the rally in Kajang that day and almost chase out that useless Wee Ka Siong what.
But with such an attitude among the guardians of Chinese education in this country, what will be the future of the Chinese schools?
Do they think the BN government will let itself be thereatened like that and bow to their racist demands?
Now, the call for the closure of the Chinese schools will be louder than ever with more will be joining the Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua chorus.
As all these are going on, DAP is at the moment sitting smugly by the sideline as DJZ took all the flak They know they have now secured thousands more of Chinese votes for backing the DJZ rally.
DAP said they support the DJZ rally, but when DJZ came under attack for making those racist demands, I don't see any DAP leader coming to their defense.
This is something all Chinese school graduates and those who support their schools should remember when DAP project itself as the defender of the Chinese community. and its education system.
They will cheer as you march to the front line and reap the rewards of your support, but when the shooting starts and the chips are down, they will be nowhere to be found.
Think again. Do you all ever remember DAP being sincerely supportive of the Chinese schools? How much have that party contributed to the Chinese education system?
I wrote too soon about the DAP not standing by their Chinese brothers in arms. Blogger Stop the Lies just posted this Racist DAP ADUN Ng Wei Aik Comes to Yap’s Defence
But, "He was quoted as saying that the Chinese community was not interested on whether Dr Yap was holding any bogus degree." This Ng really thinks the Chinese community don't care that the person leading their community's educationists is a conman? Is this true?
I have always believe that the Chinese always put the highest priority on education. How can they let a conman represents their education system?
Sorry about that. But, whatever it is, how I wish Guan Eng was the one making the statement in support of DJZ's demand for all non-Chinese speaking teachers to be immediately removed from Chinese schools.
