The Selangor MCA deputy head of public and services complaint bureau, Allan Liew Sin Kim, lodged a police report against the Penang chief minister, accompanied by five complainants at the Kajang police station.
According to the police report, Liew noted that Lim had uttered “PAS never killed a Chinese” during the wrap-up session of the head-to-head debate which was telecast live.
Liew said that the Chinese community did not understand the true meaning of this remark and felt worried and afraid as Lim was playing on a racial issue.
Thus, he wants the police to investigate Lim on whether he had violated “any racial issue laws”.
Allan Liew must be suffering from the same intellectually challenging illness like Jessie Ooi. Taking the CM's remark literally, it means PAS did not commit any serious offence against the Chinese. How can such a remark be deemed racist or dangerous?
This is the main problem with MCA. The party is acting and behaving in a weird and inconsistent manner. While it has a problem with Dap's partnership with Pas, it does not have any problem supporting Perkasa activities or UMNO's efforts to court Pas for a merger.
The party has a problem with corrupt allegations against Pakatan but it has tolerated corruption within its own coalition.
If Allan is so keen to lodge a police report against Lim Guan Eng, he should lodge a report against the organizers of the event for allowing Lim to use the stage to commit his 'crime'. He should lodge a police report against those unscrupulous politicians who had bashed up Islam, Hudud and shown grievous disrespect towards Muslims.
What about Hasan Ali and his wild imagination and allegations against the Christians? Or Ibrahim Ali's insult of the Chinese by handing out white envelopes (pak kam) during Chinese New Year?
These actions far outweigh Lim's assertion on "Pas never killed a Chinese". I hope Alan will not issue an explanation that we have heard him wrongly again, ala Jessie Ooi, which he had mistaken Lim for saying " Pas did killed a Chinese!".
If MCA wants to claw back support, it has to do it through credible, responsible, clever and productive ways.
What would the middle group think of a party whose leaders are acting like dumb-asses?
