MCA's 'White' Chinese New Year

MCA arranged and Perkasa nailed it! Compulsive attention seeker, Ibrahim Ali, and his gang of senseless and at times comical Perkasa members had caused another ruckus. This time, they had forked out almost RM10k only to court another controversy because the money was distributed in white envelopes. Netizens had criticized the act as an insult to the Chinese because the only time a white envelope is used is during bereavement.

MCA Seputeh division committee member Collin Tiew, who had arranged for more than 50 people to attend the Perkasa's CNY open house, claimed that he was victimized after he was criticized for playing a part in the Perkasa's event.

Tiew claimed that he did not know Ibrahim Ali before the event was surprisingly asked to help translate Ibrahim's speech during the event. Tiew said he was upset with the white packet but did nothing to advice or stop Ibrahim Ali from distributing them during the event.

Yes, unbelievable! My experience of working with so many politicians told me that a lack of integrity is common.

This incident is another proof that MCA has lost the plot. The party has been on the offensive against Dap for working with Pas to install an Islamic nation but the party has no qualm working with the racist and ultra Perkasa.

Perkasa's stand on a number of issues which included wild and baseless allegations against the Chinese community and Christians has angered many people, especially the Chinese community but MCA which has been vocal against Pas and the latter's ambition to install the Hudud law did not find anything wrong working with Perkasa.

The party has been critical against Dap working with Pas in Pakatan but has largely kept very quiet when sections of UMNO and Pas have been mooting a unification of the Malay political forces. If MCA is wary of Pas, it should have reacted with the same contempt against UMNO's intention to work with Pas. Can MCA assure us that the UMNO-Pas partnership does not have an Islamic state ambition and Hudud will not be implemented?

What MCA needed is consistency and a political backbone if the party is serious of rebounding as a political force to be reckoned with. Playing with the fear of the community against the Hudud law is ill conceived and poorly executed.

Hudud does not hurt the innocents. We are being badly affected by immense corruption, racist and ultra politicians, journalists and academics which have no qualm or respect for Malaysia's multiracial society and fabric.

If MCA truly represents the Chinese community, it should have gone down to the ground to listen to the community grouses, fear and needs and not trying to play with communal and religious fire. It should be brave enough to tell those unscrupulous politicians in its coalition to stop abuse of power, corruption and poor governance.

An MCA trying to instill fear to push the community to vote them may eventually face the full brunt for its own lack of political acumen. Who cares if MCA ended up with no representation in the government if the party is good for nothing?

And when this ignorant toad kept distributing the white envelopes the Mca lackeys were watching with their mouths wide open,as if in shock.But they lost their voices and bolas with fat fool toady there.And isn't this fat toad the one who said that the Mca is an irrelevant political party.Go figure.

bruno said...

Why don't Abrahim Ali's nemesis CSL invite him to distribute white envelopes at Mca's official functions to Mca members and VIP guests only.Stupid fools.

Khoo,no body can be scare of the fear mongering of hudud law by Umno/BN.For law abiding citizens hudud is like any other law.For robber barons like Umno/BN politicians,yes they have to be very very afraid of the 'HUDUD'.

For the 'HUDUD' will be their very worst nightmares of very very worst nightmares.They will have their arms and limbs chopped off for stealing the people's money.

Well said!

who cares if MCA (make chinese angry)ended up with no representatation in the government if it is good for nothing.

Chua Soil Legs knows that the 2008 GE is MCA poorest outing and shameless to threathened that they would not join the BN government if MCA fares worst in the coming election. He should have compared the coming election with the one held before 2008 GE.

Am trying to understand Perkasa's reasoning about being ignorant in the use of white ang pow packs during CNY. Honestly, it borders either on stupidity or arrogance. I tend to think its the latter, as they are very capable of using this eposide to chide the recipients in the future on the premise that if they felt insulted in any way, then don't accept it. Either way they come out winners...at the expense of the poor and destitue.

Where is MCA and our authorities when all this is happening? Amazing!!!

this episode shows MCA is working closely with Perkasa. may be we should send white ang pows to all chieftains, no?

Collin TIEW said "he was upset with the white packet but did nothing to advice or stop Ibrahim Ali from distributing them during the event."??? It means during the GE MCA also will act the same? but did nothing to advice UMNO as well? Yes, MCA will. I heart so painful to see today MCA....

Let's also take another view of this issue. The receipient could have rejected the white envelope if they feel slighted. Did they ?

Why point the gun at the organizer if the receipient reach out to receive them.

It goes to show that these mostly pensioners who chose to receive these "white pao" are greedy and a disgrace to the chinese.

If these "white pao" were given by DAP, Chua Soil Legs and company will go to town and capitalise on it till the cows come back or till the eve of the next GE.
