By Refusing To Criticise The Prime Minister’s Refusal To Condemn Perkasa For Distributing “White Pows” And Not Acting Against MCA Seputih Division Committee Member Dr Tiew Chew Ming, Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek Can No Longer Hide MCA’s Links And UMNO’s Open Support With Perkasa.(en/cn)

By refusing to criticise the refusal of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to condemn Perkasa for distributing “White Pows” and not taking action against MCA Seputih Division Committee Member Dr Tiew Chew Ming, MCA President Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek can no longer hide MCA’s links and UMNO’s open support for Perkasa. What is the use of condemning the racist Perkasa when Chua should also have asked why the Prime Minister Dato Seri Najib did not condemn Perkasa for blatantly trampling over the sensitivities of the Chinese community by distributing white instead of red ang pau during Chinese New Year?

Clearly the Prime Minister’s refusal to condemn Perkasa only proves UMNO’s open support for Perkasa racist objectives in creating their own version of “Asian Apartheid” by wanting to divide Malaysians into favoured “first-class” and discriminated “second-class” citizens. MCA is equally guilty by failing to act sternly against its Sri Desa Branch Chairman and Seputeh division committee member Dr Tiew Chew Ming, who has been exposed as openly assisting Perkasa by ferrying elderly citizens to Perkasa’s event and spoke publicly in defense of Perkasa.

Such open linkages with Perkasa by UMNO and MCA contrast with the openness of PAS in respecting the religious and cultural sensitivities of the Chinese community. PAS leaders not only distributed ang pau, mandarin oranges and Chinese New Year cards to market traders but also to a pork seller, with his pork openly displayed. Will UMNO leader have a green lion dance performance or do what PAS leaders have done?

The time for racist parties like UMNO and MCA is over. Malaysians regardless of race must reject not only extremist Perkasa and Utusan Malaysia but also UMNO and MCA, that has divided the people for 55 years and robbed the country of trillions of ringgit by relying on racial rhetoric.

Star had a front-page report yesterday quoting Customs deputy director-general Datuk Zainul Abidin Taib as saying that 7 high-tech cash scanners capable of detecting bank notes in luggage are to be installed at all entry and exit points in the country to curb the illegal outflow of money that has amounted to bilions of ringgit. US-based watchdog group Global Financial Integrity in its annual report said Malaysia lost RM150bil in illegal outflow of cash in 2009.

Malaysia was the fourth highest among developing nations, losing US$338bil (RM1.08trillion or 1,077 billion) between 2000 and 2009. Are we to lose another trillion ringgit or go bankrupt first before realising that we are being distracted from fighting corruption by supporting extremists and racists?

民主行动党秘书长兼槟州首席部长林冠英于2012年2月2日在吉隆坡发表声明:

马华不愿批评首相不谴责土著权威组织派发“白包”的做法,以及没有采取行动对付马华士布爹区会当然委会张秋明医生,显示拿督蔡细历医生再也无法掩盖马华与土权的联系,以及巫统对土权的公开支持。

马华不愿批评首相不谴责土著权威组织派发“白包”的做法,以及没有采取行动对付马华士布爹区会当然委会张秋明医生,拿督蔡细历医生再也无法掩盖马华与土权的联系,以及巫统对土权的公开支持。蔡细历谴责种族主义的土权有什么用?他应该问首相为何不谴责土权,公然在农历新年期间触犯华社的敏感文化禁忌,派发“白包”,而不是“红包”?

很明显地,首相不愿意谴责土权,证明巫统公开支持土权的种族主义议程,制造本身的“亚洲版隔离政策”,将马来西亚人民分裂成“第一等”而受歧视的“第二等”公民。马华也难逃其咎,因为它没有严厉对付时利帝沙支会兼士布爹区会当然委员张秋明医生,他被揭发公开协助土权载送老人家出席土权的活动,还公开替土权说话。

巫统和马华与土权的联系如此张扬,与伊斯兰党尊重华社宗教及文化敏感习俗成强烈正比。伊斯兰党不只分派红包、蕉柑和贺年卡给巴刹小贩,也派给公开摆卖猪肉的猪肉贩。巫统会不会进行舞青狮表演,或者像伊斯兰党领袖那样?

是时候终结像巫统及马华这类种族主义政党。马来西亚各族人民不只应该拒绝极端的土权及《前锋报》,也应该拒绝巫统和马华,它已经分裂人民55年,还假借种族论述,敛走了我国数兆令吉的财富。

昨天《星报》 头条新闻引述关税局副总监拿督再努说,当局将在我们所有出入口安装7部现款扫描机,以阻遏数百亿令吉非法资金外流的问题。美国全球金融廉正机构在年度报告中说,2009年,马来西亚因资金非法外流而损失了1500亿令吉。

马来西亚在2000年至2009年间损失了10兆7700 亿令吉,是资金非法外流第四多的国家。难道我们还要等到损失另一个1兆令吉或破产,我们才发现反贪工作因支持极端及种族主义而转移视线,?
