I think it’s high time you guys decide whether your party is a multi-racial one, as you've often claimed, or in fact a two-tier 1Bumi 9Non political organization, not unlike the two-tier BN of 1UMNO 9Others.
I ask because your Sarawak state chief has just been pushing the 1Bumi line, arguing that the PR Sarawak state shadow cabinet does not have enough bumis. If he is so conscious about racial equity, then please be frank and declare your party as one like BN, of 1Bumi 9Nons.
But I sympathize with you because its seems Bian can’t make up his mind about his bumi status, as yesterday he challenged DAP to prove its (DAP’s) multiracial credentials. He wasn't alone in his jealous outburst because I recall that Nik Nazmi, your chief of communications or whatever, had (post-election) jealously sniped at DAP in an article he wrote in The Malaysian Insider, challenging it to stand in a Malay-Melanau majority seat.
Jealous lah. Tough, eat it, or your sour grapes pathetic jealousy will be so poisonous that if you aren't careful, you'll toxify yourself, that is, if you haven't already.
Baru Bian, hot one day on multi-racialism and cold the next when he suddenly turned sizzling on ketuanan bumi, not unlike a cacing kena abu or a kera kena belacan, twisting and turning and a hopping around, probably because he wasn't nominated opposition leader, wakakaka.
Incidentally, your royal princess has declared that PKR will not cede to other PR members any of the 49 seats it contested recently, despite losing in 46 wakakaka - what a dog in a manger. What percentage does 49 over 71 make? What percentage of bumi does Baru Bian demand in the shadow cabinet? Or, does he just want be opposition leader wakakaka? Another Zahrain Hashim in the making?
Hmmm, I wonder what other outrageous demand PKR is going to make, but whatever, I won't be surprised?
Incidentally, do you know how long PKR has been in Sarawak politics? Just a mere ten years. So don’t be so easily discouraged by your pathetic results in the state election despite claiming for yourself the largest chunks of seats to contest, wakakaka. Oh yes, we remember all too well (and with disgust) the fangs you had snarled at your supposed PR allies when they asked for a fair share of the 71 seats.
DAP had hoped to get a mere 20, less than one-third, but you forced it to reduce its share to 15; SNAP asked for 20 or so, but you arrogantly declared it could have 3 as if you are like UMNO dictating to MCA, MIC, Gerakan and the rest of 9Non. Maybe some of you still think you’re UMNO and can grab the lion share wherever, whenever, however?
Baru Bian is also now eyeing DAP’s traditional grounds of Miri (and Stampin). For the next state election, why don’t you demand those 12 seats that DAP won (only after they had invested 30 years of hard work in those constituencies)? Wait, why don't you ask DAP to stay out of Sarawak and Sabah altogether, allowing you to declare these two states as PKR's 'safe deposit'? Such a policy will better align you with UMNO's thoughts.
Let me remind you of an old saying, to cut one’s suit according to the cloth one has. Thus there is no obligation for DAP (or you) to charge into constituencies where angels dare not
* Update: My dear English teacher, dear Mrs Goh, rang me all the way from Penang to admonish me on my poor spelling - she chided me, but sweetly, "kaytee kaytee, you've forgotten my teachings!" sob
By the way, don’t panic if you now hear about DAP making man man lai inroads into Bidayuh territory. This has been based on the encouraging support it had received from the community in the last election. But fret not as it plans a lengthy five-year campaign to win the support of the people. It won’t be a fantasized 916 quickie or Taiwan foray to 'political power in 7 days'. Slow and steady wins the race, as proven in its 30 years of investment. No investment (including hardwork), no gain, because there isn't and shouldn't be any affirmative action in PR politics. So keep your fingers out of Miri, please.
Now, many of you weren’t UMNO rejects. Apart from the Batu martyr wannabe, why don’t you see the truth and do something positive, as dear Jonson Chong has, instead of remaining silent and acting 'dunno'?
Do you know something unpleasant, you bunch of ‘Confusions’ wakakaka are actually witnessing and tolerating the further UMNO-ization of your party, so really, what’s the difference between you and MCA? Wake up and remember your socialist roots, and don’t be the PKR equivalent of Liow ‘My beloved PM’ Tiong Lai wakakaka.
p/s don't forget to read my earlier post PKR’s green-eyed monster wakakaka!
