The Fat Man Running Dog

*Note: This will be the first half of things I will be covering about the socio-polo stuff in Malaysia before taking a break from blogging of this matter for a while. Felt that there is a need to cover this and the next one up.*

I thought for a while that when I read the news of the 395 NGOs forming part of DAMAI handed a memo to Abdullah Badawi it gave me two impressions from the actions done.

1. The 395 NGOS simply do not understand that there are situations in Malaysia that cannot be ignored and will plunge the nation into abyss.

2. If Abdullah cannot sit down and talk with NGOs and those who do have proof with problems and merely ignores it, but instead he listens to those who follows his tenets and the government stances, then there is something wrong with him and he's a hypocrite.

No. That's not what I want to cover about. Instead, I wanted to cover this:

From the Star:
In the joint-declaration read by Damai chairman Mohd Saiful Adil Mohd Daud, members expressed their disgust at street demonstrations, and the use of religious and racial issues to create hatred among Malaysians.

They also condemned individuals and groups who used lies and slander against the country and asked for foreign intervention into Malaysia's internal affairs, he said.

Damai advisor and Bukit Bintang MCA chief Senator Datuk Dr Lee Chong Meng said the Bersih and Hindraf illegal demonstrations last month had caused tourists to avoid Malaysia.

And another one from NST:

There is something I don't really like about him. I have to concur with some friends that this guy is a classic example of a running dog - machai, always a yes-men, kow tow to the high and mighty with the CLEAR fact that the high and mighty were in the wrong end. Such kind of guy as part of the MCA shows that the MCA is just like the MIC. They are not doing much for the Chinese out of the basic barriers, respect that was defined 50 years ago. They should have helped everyone, not to pocket the money as a reward for serving under UMNO and just doing nothing. That's gaji buta, oiii!!!!

In fact, Lee was the first guy in the government immediately after the BERSIH rally to speak up as the running dog - machai.... Taking a statement from Lulu and Zorro, To blame the Bersih march for loss of business, man.... it's no wonder why he lost so many times. Here, we are looking at one man who doesn't even know of the shame of being a kotow to the despotic, even though the facts are out there.

A letter taken from Malaysiakini, with these key paragraphs sums out what I want to say:
His (Lee's) selfish and ill-conceived reason that the demonstration on Nov 10 have caused losses in the 'millions' clearly shows that the MCA and their underlings have no principles to uphold and that their main motivation for objecting to the rally was because of money.

By now, the Chinese community should be conscious of MCA's role in the BN government. The MCA politicians are in the BN for money, position and power. Fifty years of this unholy alliance in the BN have proven that MCA is incapable of looking after the interests of the Chinese community. If they had done their work faithfully and unselfishly, the Chinese would not have been marginalised in education, civil service, government contracts, university places and a slew of other racist policies.

The coming election will determine the future of the Chinese community. If we continue to give MCA the same support we have been giving them for the last 50 years then you can expect the same practice and habits to continue. MCA politicians will continue to receive the crumbs offered by their Umno counterparts and in return they will give their undivided support to plunder the nation's coffers.
The NST article mentioned above has the similar context to the first paragraph of saying money is the motivation of objecting the rally.

I would just tell the MCA to wake up from the slumber. Remember of their first and foremost duty to help the Chinese community in Malaysia. Don't just be a yes-man to them, for the future's sake! If they had really acted earlier, anticipate the problems of the community and solve them instead of ignoring them to this point, then true, there is not a need to have a rally to call the attention.

  1. Dr Lee is the ex-MP (who lost to Wee Choo Keong in the Election) but was "fixed" by the retired Chief Justice and awarded the MP post; more popularly known as Dr Ayam, being the advisor to the Poultry Dealers Association and not the "kei lo" advisor to the Chinaman "ayam (kei)" in the notorious BB red light areas.
    He led the Protest against the Bersih Rally claiming that it was “bad business” for traders. What and how did they protest? They had the placards and standing behind that MCA man issued a statement condemning the Bersih Rally initiative.
    Reading at the MCA controlled STAR’s account you can see the exaggerations used adding as usual the “salt & fire” to spice up that story. The report says 80 NGOs and they rattled off just a few whilst the TV station says 40 NGOs.
