LETTER The MCA president Dr Chua Soi Lek has pressed the panic button, according to party insiders in Tenang.
The nepotism-practising Chua and his Labis MP son Tee Yong have thus come up with a plan to put up a good show to please the eyes of their Umno masters.
Unable to attract the attention and support of the Chinese electorate physically in Tenang, they are printing thousands of 1Malaysia tee-shirts to be distributed free to the Tenang folk.
The insiders say all the Tenang folk need to do is to wear the tee-shirt for two hours and they will be paid RM100 each.
If this is true, please be Tenang. Take the money and wear the tee-shirt for two hours. You need not feel bad about it because it is all taxpayers’ money, meaning your and our money.
But, come polling day on Saturday (Jan 30), do the right thing with your ballot for the future of the country and our generations.
The dirty illicit-sex hands of Dr Chua started the religious and racial bigotry ball rolling by complaining about Pakatan-PAS candidate Normala Sudirman wearing gloves to shake hands.
He likened her to PKR president Dr Wan Azizah who also wears gloves when shaking hands with the public.
Do you really want to shake his (Dr Chua) groping hands? He is so “gian” to feel Normala and Wan Azizah’s hands!
Dr Chua is actually insulting the Muslim community with this and I wonder if the Umno Malays have the intelligence to realise it.
Hopefully, rational-thinking Malaysians, especially those in Tenang, will realise that Barisan Nasional (BN) has nothing to offer to forward Malaysia after 53 years of Independence.
They continue with their religious and race agenda to instil fear, to divide and rule Malaysians.
To MCA and Umno, the by-election is about wearing gloves to shake hands, chopping hands of thieves under Hudud laws (I have no fear because I am not a thief and neither am I a Muslim).
Now, was it Umno (remember how Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein defended the slaughtered cow head protesters in Shah Alam) or PAS that resorted to this “violence”?
Was it Umno or PAS that defended the non-Muslims?
Johor Mentri Besar Ghani Othman had warned voters in Tenang not to vote for PAS, otherwise the Islamist party may “chop off your hands for stealing”. That is the classic IQ level of a BN MB.
Instead of resorting to propagating the virtues of a truly 1Malaysia through unity-themed campaigns, we hear the same old subtle threats to instil fear among the various ethnic communities.
Now, we hear the MCA’s nepotism duo of Chua wanting to print 1Malaysia tee-shirts for show.
Please remember this, Tenang folk.
By supporting MCA and Umno, you are endorsing that:
Ø Money can buy support;
Ø Money can buy sex; and
Ø Money can buy anything.
Chua and his son are fighting for their political survival because Labis is supposedly their stronghold. You are fighting for our future.
So, come Saturday, the future is in your hands or should I say, the ballot that you cast
