DAP is now in serious damage control, remembering with trepidation the 1999 saga when the voters rejected Lim Kit Siang and the hallowed (now late) Karpal Singh for foolishly allying themselves with the Islamic PAS, which was/still is much feared by non-Muslim Chinese and Indians.
Though the DAP survived the subsequent 2008 and 2013 general elections even when in consort with PAS, those were only due to 3 ameliorating factors, namely:
(a) the seductive manmanlai persuasion of Anwar Ibrahim,
(b) the grandfatherly charm and goodwill of the late Nik Aziz, and
(c) the televised and media reported ketuanan ferocity of the blatantly arrogant UMNO members.
But today paras (a) and (b) are no longer here to help soothe away our hatred and fears of the despicable dictatorial despot in Mahathir, whom we know hates Chinese and disdain his own race, the Indians.
sorry tian chua you can't join pribumi 'coz you are not a malay
On top of that, we have former Suaram Director and current Dong Jiao Zong Director at New Era College in Kajang, Dr Kua Kia Soong warning us of Pakatan's 'betrayal' in allying itself with Mahathir despite the former dictator's humongous range of scandals, from:
- Forex to Maminco,
- BMF to Perwaja
- MAS to the Bakun-ised draconian displacement of Sarawakian natives,
- Ops Lalang to the 'destruction of Indian plantation workers whose communities were forced to become urban settlers through Mahathir's neo-liberal capitalist policies',
- dictatorial unilateral declaration of Malaysia as a fundamentalist Islamic nation to “The needless communal controversies created around mother tongue education during the 80s, including the Unified Examination Certificate in 1975, the National Culture Policy, the unqualified school administrators sent to Chinese schools in 1987, and others,”
- criticising Najib for wasting public funds on the Chinese to forming a kutuanan Melayu-only 'Pribumi' party which idoes NOT allow Chinese and Indians to join.
- etc etc etc
We must not forgive Pakatan, especially Lim Kit Siang for the evil Faustian Pact. that is, in making a deal with the Devil.
ok kit, this is what i'll do for you
but you've to stop those silly reforms
you also have to forgive and support macc
and forget about teoh beng hock - he's not important to you
who? teoh beng hock? i can't remember who he is, was, er ...
As if Pakatan being in close contact with a political leper wasn't bad enough, the coalition found itself cowering in embarrassment when Mahathir went on to assert himself as the top dog of Pakatan ...
... where he said in his own pompous arrogant grandiose words, when asked at a press conference if all three of the named leaders of PH (him, Anwar and Wan Azizah) are on equal footing in the coalition:
“In the hierarchy, I am the top dog there. We can’t have a country ruled by three prime ministers.”
So there you have it - though Anwar Ibrahim was named the de facto leader of Pakatan Harapan, meaning he is No 1, the old despicable dictatorial despot spoke out in his old arrogant unilateral style. claiming the No 1 spot for himself as Top Dog, and f**k the rest of PH if they including Anwar, Wan Azizah and who-else don't like it.
Not only that, Mahathir named himself as the PRIME MINISTER when he said pompously and arrogantly “I am the top dog there. We can’t have a country ruled by three prime ministers.”
Thus he proclaimed himself as the sole Pakatan PM-designate.
And that set poor Tan Kok Wai, DAP’s acting national chairman, to come running out in frenetic desperation to salvage the coalition from the enormous political carnage Mahathir had wrecked upon it with his (Mahathir's) arrogant words.
Kok Wai was assigned the salvage operations because Lim Kit Siang himself doesn't dare to appear to say anything as he has been solely instrumental in 'recruiting' not the Top Dog but the Maddest Ferocious Ketuanan anti-Chinese Dog into a now-so-called Reformist coalition, that's has transformed itself very very far from being reformist.
no, i'm not tian chua but give me a Chinese to bite
Tan Kok Wai whimpered that Mahathir’s position as PH chairman does not make the Opposition pact answerable to him. Kok Wai fools himself by claiming Mahathir does not call the shots in PH.
Yes, stop dreaming, Kok Wai. No one can stop Mahathir once he makes up his mind on a course.
I personally hope the DAP will do well in GE-14, despite the ongoing sabotage of the party by RoS, but I trust Lim Kit Siang will, alone among all DAP candidates, suffer the most punishing rebuke from DAP supporters wherever he stands in GE-14.
Relive 1999, (and since we are on the subject of dogs) you bloody mongrel.
