MCA Trying To Hide Its Ineffectiveness In Improving The Livelihood Of The People And Complete Failure To Prevent Rising Costs As Shown By The 20 Cents Increase In RON 97 Petrol To RM2.90 Per Liter
Former Wanita chief Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz's rejection of Utusan Malaysia and Perkasa's 1 Melayu, 1 Bumi movement because it will threaten Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's 1 Malaysia is not echoed by other top UMNO leaders. In fact, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin has refused to disagree with the 1Melayu,1 bumi movement or even repeat Najib's evasive answer of it being a only personal opinion of Utusan Malaysia's editors.
DAP regrets that instead of mounting a campaign against Utusan Malaysia provocative, extremist and dangerous ideology, MCA Deputy President Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai has chosen instead to label DAP as real racists. What happened to MCA's previous loud calls to boycott Utusan?
No one is surprised that MCA has once again shown that it would do UMNO's bidding by abandoning its proposed boycott Utusan campaign and obediently heed the "advice" given by Muhyiddin. However, it is surprising that MCA has instead decided to launch into a ferocious and rabid attack on DAP as the real racists. Clearly MCA feels that DAP is easier to bully than Utusan Malaysia a classic case of fearing the wicked and bullying the good.
MCA has no right to label DAP as racists when DAP is a multi-racial party fighting for all Malaysians regardless of race, religion, gender or even political affiliation. This is proven by PR's good governance and record of treating all equally. Instead it is MCA and UMNO that are the real racists for fighting only for the Chinese or only for the Malays respectively.
There is no need for MCA to use the "empty fortress" strategm by threatening and frightening the Chinese voters to vote for MCA or else there will be no Chinese representation in government. MCA hopes to claw back popular support by using this "empty fortress" strategy to force the Chinese community to turn and run away from DAP.
MCA can easily regain lost popular support if MCA dares to fight the injustices, abuses of power and corruption perpetrated by UMNO. Sadly MCA has chosen to submit to UMNO's dominance and play UMNO's racial game of divide and rule. How can Liow Tiong Lai claim that this historic decision is a democratic one when it strikes against the basic democratic right of the voters to choose freely without fear of favour?
MCA is trying to distract attention from its ineffectiveness to improve the livelihood of the people and complete failure to prevent rising costs as shown by the 20 cents increase in RON 97 petrol to RM2.90 per liter.

The swearing-in of Datuk Lee Kim Shin as Sarawak assistant infrastructure development and communications minister yesterday has exposed the BN's "empty fortress" strategy to frighten the Chinese voters to vote for BN or else there will be no Chinese representation in government as an empty threat. This empty nest strategy is hoped to force the Chinese community to turn and run away from DAP.
Clearly such threats are made before elections but when posts and positons are offered after elections, as happened to SUPP Datuk Wong Soon Koh and Datuk Lee Kim Shin, BN leaders will never be able to resist the temptation of the perks and privileges available to fight for principles of right and wrong. What is sad is that MCA President Datuk Seri Chua Soi Lek had allowed both Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin to racialise the Sarawak elections results instead of a democratic call for change..
No one believes MCA would carry out its threat to reject positions or posts should the voters reject MCA again at the next general elections. After all if voters have rejected BN, why is it that MCA dare not withdraw from BN? Whether MCA wins big or loses big in general elections, MCA would continue to be given 4 minor Ministerial posts.
Just like Gerakan President Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon who promised during the 2008 general elections that he would reject any back-door appointment as Senator to become a Minister or SUPP's Datuk Wong Soon Koh and DAtuk Lee who secretly accepted their appointments in defiance of their party, no MCA leader would reject the opportunity for such high posts that they have been fighting for all their political career.
Chua Soi Lek has been exposed as an unprincipled leader by ex-MCA President Datuk Ong Tee Keat for Chua not practicing what he preaches by directing its sole Assemblyman and EXCO in Perak or Negeri Sembilan to resign. Neither has Chua the courage to direct its 4 Ministers in Cabinet to resign as MCA lost badly in the 2008 general elections. This agains confirms MCA's struggle is not about principles but for positions, not fighting for the people but for posts.
After all, it has proven time and time again that whether or not MCA is represented in Cabinet makes no difference as MCA as merely puppets of UMNO. Issues affecting Malaysians are ignored and corruption allowed to run rampant until RM888 billion of illicit or "black" money was secretly and illegally taken out from 2000-2008.
When UMNO made a unilateral decision to invite PAS to join BN, MCA dare not protest UMNO's dictatorial decision as undemocratic. And yet MCA dares to threaten Malaysians for exercising their democratic rights not to vote for MCA.
