Reverse Racism

I seriously think that people who call others racists are themselves worse racists because they can't see beyond the race issue.  Case in point, is this NST article by Bee Kim and Suganthi, which I picked up from Bee Kim's place that exemplifies perfectly my view.

With the 18 years of Ghani's track record in Johor as Mentri Besar, the best they can come up with is

"because he is an Umno member and a “racist at heart”, said DAP vice-chairman M. Kulasegaran at a ceramah comprising mainly Indian voters in Taman Kluang Barat on Monday night."

I don't know about elsewhere, but apparently, the DAP line of campaigning is all about race, regardless of who or what he/she is, no matter what he/she has contributed to the people of Johor, as long as he/she is Umno, mind you it is not BN but Umno, then he/she is a racist at heart.  As far as these people are concerned, that's all that matters, the presumed racism (as defined by DAP) in the heart of all Umno members.  That was what was implied in the "Chinese Revolt (Revolution)" statement by the DAP operatives.

A comment in my previous posting lamented my battleground analysis as based purely on ethnic composition:

Tinsel - I agree with, and appreciate, your opposition to JUK's comments. Your analysis is also interesting but the reasoning supporting it seems to be, to paraphrase, this or that seat will be competitive because of its ethnic mix. There's little or no consideration of the match up of candidates, local issues or policies. While you and JUK have different reactions, both appear to be based on a race-based interpretation of the world we live in. If this is what we aspire to, we are lost as a nation.

Unfortunately, this is how the state of things is, Anon, whether we like it or not.  It is not about issues, it is not about performance as a state administrator, it is not about your credibility as a politician, it is all about the perception that has been painted by DAP of Umno (which is really a Malay party) as the mother of all evils, the only racist organisation in Malaysia.  And it is all about ethnic composition of the electorates.

I am not going to list out what Dato Ghani has done for the Chinese of Gelang Patah in his capacity as Mentri Besar, because you can read it at Bee Kim's.  I am just going to say that he has done a hell of a lot more for the people of Gelang Patah than Lim Kit Siang, Boo Cheng Hau and the entire DAP Johor combined.  That is why I sincerely hope that Gelang Patah will prove them all wrong, and Dato Ghani will win handsomely with substantial support from the Chinese too.


  1. Woi Bigcat... you too daily calling PR support racist, cermin-lah diri dulu !!

    1. really? guess you're one too for seeing race issues in articles that don't even have them. Either that or you're mistaking DAP's articles for Bigcat's articles.

    2. Why must you tolerate Ghani or Malays being called racists? Why? For being a Malay? For fighting for a Malay homeland?

      The Indians or chinese has no right to called any Malays racists. This is their motherland. The land of the Malays.

      If any hospitality is extended to Chinese and Indians migrants that is out of the bigness of his heart.

      So the best response is to laugh or to kick his Indian arss back to Mumbai..

  2. I am beginning to feel the futility of it all.

  3. some have a very blinkered point of view and mindset.. with their siege mentality .. u will never do right by them if u don't agree with what they say.. now.. i just don't give a rat's ass anymore.. i will just make sure i vote

  4. Hudud or no Hudud, that is the Singaporean DAP's question !

  5. In this ultimate battle, it is improper for the Chinese to vote for Singapore's DAP which is not to their ultimate interests. They should avoid fighting other people's battles !

  6. It is improper that the Chinese, the Malaysian Chinese should vote for the Singapore Trojan Horse, the DAP.
    Why ? For 44 long years the DAP did not help the Malays, the Bumiputras, the Chinese, the Indians and all but shouted 'Malaysia for Malaysians'. This caused the non-Chinese to be suspicious of the loyal, hard working and innocent Chinese, the Malaysian Chinese.
    Recently, the DAP said 'Malaysian Politics is Malay-based.' Why did the DAP misled the Chinese, the Malaysian Chinese for 44 long years causing a lot of mischief ? The reason is the Singapore Trojan Horse the DAP has been activated to fulfil its MISSION - to crush the BN as led by the UMNO with the 14 component parties. For this ulitmate mission and battle, the Singapore DAP is in league with the very rich PKR and the very pious PAS.
    This is confirmed by the ill-advised visit to the Malaysian Ulus by the DAP founder Lee Kuan Yew. This visit exposed the deep, deep interference by a foreigner in the domestic politics of Malaysia. Lee Kuan Yew did not foresee in April 2008 even though he is a mighty man, that after October 2008, most of his important Policies would fail and his reputation and legacy is now threatened by international events which even he could not control.

    So, the Singapore Trojan Horse the DAP is activated to crush the BN as led by the UMNO with the 14 component parties and conquer our beloved Malaysia.
    A ONE-STREET TOWN CONTROLS A COUNTRY OF 27 MILLION SOULS WHICH STRETCHES 1,200 MILES FROM END TO END. This must be the greatest gamble of the 20th century, not the 21st.

    And the Chinese, the Malaysian Chinese, what have they got to do with other people's battles especially Singapore's battles and risk all they now have.
