The Malaysian Insider’s Kit Siang claims double standards in Namewee, school principals cases reported (extracts):
Lim Kit Siang put more pressure on Datuk Seri Najib Razak today to act against racism by comparing the swift action against controversial rapper Namewee to inaction over two school principals who allegedly uttered racist remarks. […]
Lim disagreed with MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek’s statement that the party would support any action taken by the government against Wee. Does this include action under the Sedition Act or other capital offences. How can the MCA leadership with four ministers in the Cabinet take such an irresponsible position giving a blank cheque to racists and extremists to set the agenda as to the punishment that should be meted out to Meng Chee.
“Isn’t this a gross abdication of responsibility in government?” he said.
So it seems that MCA President Chua Soi Lek has assured the UMNO-led government his party would support any action taken against Wee Chee Meng (Namewee). Does that imply he agrees with UMNO's strident call for Namewee to be punished for his ‘crimes’.
Has Chua ascertained what actually have been Chee Meng's crimes?
Flashback - Wee posted a YouTube rap song to criticise two school principals for their alleged overt racism against their pupils. It was reported that one of these so-called school principals had told her Chinese students to go back to China while sneering at her Indian students as dogs leashed by their Hindu amulet wrist strings.
There is no doubt a leitmotiv in this form of racism. Remember Najib's former aide who preached that Chinese women are prostitutes and Indians beggars?
'Leitmotiv' in this context means the theme (of racist vilifications against Chinese and Indians) keeps recurring, is often repeated ... and by some UMNO and pro UMNO people. One can only surmise that for these people there has been a common indoctrination program of hate against the Chinese and Indians.
Given this, we shouldn't be too surprised that thus far these two alleged racists have had no action taken against them other than sweet supportive/protective statements from the Education Director-General. The DPM heel-dragged his way through the disgusting shameful and seditious issues by forming a panel to investigate into those alleged seditious crimes.
And we know that panels and committees can be convenient tactics for delaying, avoiding, diverting away the unpleasant arrival at the truth for the 'chosen ones', a truth that seditious crimes had been committed with the natural consequences being at least the dismissal of the two as unfit persons to be teachers. Yes, we have to be realistic and not expect punishments such as jail terms for them.
Now we are informed by Lim Kit Siang that the Education Department has passed the issue (another time wasting tactic) to the Public Service Department (PSD). The PSD in turn said that a show cause letter would be issued to the Kulai school principal if she had indeed uttered derogatory remarks at her students.
(a) the delaying tactic of passing the issue from department to department,
(b) the Education Department which was supposed to have completed the so-called investigation, on passing presumably the finding to the PSD, now sees the PSD saying it would issue show cause letter ... NOW GET THIS F* BULLSHIT ... if she had indeed uttered derogatory remarks at her students.
... if she had indeed ... can mean only one thing, neither the Education Department nor the PSD knows nor wants to know, or pretend they don't know, whether she made the racist comments, despite and in spite of numerous police reports being made against her.
Nah, why should we be surprised. Don’t worry Siti Inshah, a promotion for you is just around the corner.
Lim Kit Siang lamented in frustration: Three weeks have passed since the incident in Kulai on August 12. Is it so difficult to establish the facts and the truth of the incident?
Yes, but only if it means a 'chosen one' would be punished.
Meanwhile, without any delay, Namewee was hauled over the coals, first by the police for 3 hours, then by the MCMC for over seven hours.
So Chua Soi Lek, without checking out the facts on the Namewee issue, you were so keen to ampu your boss that you abandoned Chee Meng, an anti-racist socio-political commentator, to the UMNO-led government for punishment.
It’s like a votive sacrificial offering during the seventh moon period of the lunar calendar. And you wonder why only 91% of Chinese Malaysians consider you NOT fit to be a leader of the community.
NAH! We’ll be waiting for you in the next GE.
