Gerakan advisor Dr Lim Keng Yaik has called on all party members to speak out against Malay supremacy, even if it lands them in jail. If speaking out against race supremacy can land a person in jail, this country is not better than some of the most autocratic regime.
Dr Lim is an experienced politician. He is still the man behind the bamboo curtain of Parti Gerakan. He should know that shadow boxing is both tiring and useless. He should advice his party's leadership to send an official note to UMNO to ask the latter's stand on 'ketuanan Melayu'.
The chief of BTN and a bunch of UMNO top leaders do not see anything wrong in promoting the concept of 'ketuanan Melayu', worse using the taxpayers' money.
Dr Lim should walk his talk. He should ask his party to leave the coalition if UMNO cannot accept equality for all. The art of making some noise but condoning this 'foul word' and behaviour (NEP + racial discrimination) will not make his party look any better than the Dirty Dozen (other BN component parties) who are still being led by the nose by the almighty UMNO.
Describing it as a 'foul word' in politics, Lim said 'Ketuanan Melayu' or Malay supremacy should be resisted even if it is espoused by Umno.
Dare Gerakan resist Ahmad Ismail? Guess what? UMNO has reinstated him after serving less than a third of a 'bogus' suspension. He is unrepentant and unperturbed. He has called for Gerakan leaders blood. What can senior Lim or his junior do?
