Two unyielding issues gibbering away post-GE13 are now causing great national distress that seems to be breaking away like a runaway train.
First, the systemic fibbing of electoral fraud fabricated by Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim who can’t stand the idea of not landing Putrajaya and will not stop his specious campaign until he is made prime minister; and,
Second, the so-called “Chinese swing” that expertly exploited Chinese disenchantment to steer Chinese votes away from the ruling coalition on the illusion that it would catapult Anwar, and with him the DAP, to rule Malaysia.
This swing had assumed that if Anwar and his axis take over Putrajaya, everything will be just and ideal, that all wrongs would be made right: that’s the Kool Aid that Anwar keeps serving and what the gullible and naïve want to drink in order to believe.
But the swing didn’t even begin to force a changeover in government, merely the realisation that the old realpolitik, underpinned by Malaysian-styled race relations, has transformed into an unwieldy beast.
These first and second issues are symbiotically interconnected to achieve a long, cherished goal — the ultimate downfall of Barisan Nasional arrayed on three false flags:
COERCIVE urban protest rallies, like the illegal one held on Wednesday night in Kelana Jaya, exhorting Arab Spring-like rebellion underscored by incredulous accusations by PKR’s de facto leader;
INFLAMMATORY anti-national dissent over social media, the most disturbing example being the inverted Jalur Gemilang protest; and,
DAP’S “indignant hypocrisy” vilifying a Malay national daily for publishing racism when the DAP itself is guiltier of undercutting non-Chinese representations in their party and general elections.
This “pot calling the kettle black” mechanism has been a typical DAP-bullying style institutionalised over decades of confrontationist, in-your-face challenges.
Check out their venomous cyber-troopers’ assaults on discourse against the DAP. Of course, when the DAP does it, its sanctimonious free speech anchored on democratic principles. But when rivals pull the same number on the DAP, it is racism, pure and simple.
Which makes every DAP leaders’ whinging against opponents — you can tell that they have lost the argument or can’t articulate it — as opportunely moored on racism and more racism.
Even people who should know better are inveigled by the DAP’s sly strategy: they fall in cue to the DAP’s miscasting of free speech as racism, like the attack against Utusan Malaysia for their temerity to pose a simple query in reference to major government concessions rewarded to the Chinese community but unreciprocated in votes for the BN on May 5.
The DAP’s hackneyed remonstrations against Utusan’s “racism” were heightened by police reports against the newspaper for sedition but the prime minister defended Utusan’s query while urging critics to examine similar, if not worse, provocations against Malays in the Chinese press.
Anwar, of course, jumped into the fray, ironic when he was part of BN years ago who routinely vilified the DAP’s racist nature and overtures. This time, he simulated it to bolster his indefatigable desire to become PM.
But reading the Utusan report in its proper context, the daily is no more racist than the DAP who have demonstrated its mulish unwillingness to boost Malay leadership in its jealously-guarded hierarchy, contested only in Chinese-dominated seats and defend Chinese rights in education and culture but slam other outfits if they stand up for their own community.
Anwar’s fibbing is so extensive that he could issue allegations of “unprecedented electoral fraud” either without concrete proof or with flimsy evidence snarling virulently in popular social media sites.
But here’s a novelty to stave off Anwar: he lobs flash grenades into people’s consciousness without evidence so we can dismiss those mind bombs, also without evidence so as to counteract his perception wager.
Anwar is conveniently selective in politicising his fibbing: it is confined to parliamentary seats when balloting was also for state seats. For the sake of constancy, Anwar and the colluding DAP must also claim fraud in Penang, Kelantan and Selangor, states where the ragtag opposition won handsomely.
What? It’s free and fair in these three states you say? Lim Guan Eng and Datuk Ahmad Yakob were sworn-in in Penang and Kelantan as chief minister and menteri besar respectively without incident but how could they when you claimed electoral fraud? Selangor must then withhold the swearing in of Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim as the probable menteri besar because Anwar’s fraud con taints Khalid’s swearing-in.
And what about Karpal Singh’s revelation that the DAP is happy with its polls performance, a direct denunciation of Anwar’s prattling about fraud. Let’s not get started with their bogus logic that fraud occurred just because they won the national popular votes and, by that twisted thinking, they must have won Putrajaya.
There lies the sickening hypocrisy of Anwar and the DAP but then, this is their world — we all have to stomach its insufferable yarn.
