Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 6.2.2015.

UMNO Believes That Malaysians, Including Non-Malays and Moderate Malays, Will Still Blindly Support BN Despite Their Failure To Punish Ismail Sabri Yaakob For His Racist Remark To Boycott Chinese Traders For Failing To Reduce Prices And That Malays Are Oppressed By The Chinese.

Former MCA vice-president Gan Ping Sieu may not be correct that Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s decision to let Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob off the hook for Ismail’s false anti-Chinese racist remark, is a sign of a lethargic administration detached from the public that would hurt BN politically. UMNO believes that Malaysians, including non-Malays and moderate Malays, will still blindly support BN despite their failure to punish Ismail Sabri Yaakob for his false and racist remark to boycott Chinese traders for failing to reduce prices and that Malays are oppressed by the Chinese.

At the same time, BN must have made their political calculation that they will get more Malay votes without losing non-Malay votes, by being racist and extremist in their views and even discriminate against non-Malays. Of course a weak MCA President in Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai did not help. Former MCA President Tan Sri Dr Chua Soi Lek is correct when he criticised Liow as not only weak but also deceitful, when Liow claimed that Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak understood MCA’s position.

However Liow’s deceit and weakness was proven when the Prime Minister’s Office issued a statement defending Ismail Sabri instead of reprimanding him as implied by Liow. Worse, Defence Minister Hishamuddin Tun Hussein Onn revealed that both Liow and his deputy Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong did not raise in Cabinet for Ismail Sabri to retract his untruthful and racist statement, apologise or resign from Cabinet.

And many non-Malays and moderate Malays do not understand why Liow still posed for photographs smiling broadly with Ismail after the Cabinet meeting if MCA is genuinely so angry with Ismail’s false and racist slur against the Chinese. This is a classic case of saying something in public but doing the complete opposite inside Cabinet. Can Liow and Wee Ka Siong explain why they have now overlooked Ismail’s racist anti-Chinese remark?

The Chinese community are angry and hurt that they are blamed for something they are not responsible for. However the Chinese community will react peacefully and rationally as well as remember this racist lies by UMNO for a long time to come. The Chinese community will also not forget the betrayal of both Gerakan and MCA Ministers in Cabinet for not daring to speak up for justice and voice their sorrows for them in Cabinet.

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼国会议员林冠英于2015年2月6日在吉隆坡发表的文告。

伊斯迈沙比里发表种族主义言论,声称要杯葛无法降价的华裔商家,及指控华裔压迫马来人,巫统不但没有因此而惩罚沙比里,却仍然相信非巫裔及温和派巫裔会盲目支持国阵。

马华前副总会长颜炳寿针对首相纳吉轻易放过农业部长伊斯迈沙比里,认为是国阵疲执政态尽显,并与民意脱节,将伤害到国阵的政途。颜炳寿的看法或许是不对的。因为即使伊斯迈沙比里发表种族主义言论,声称要杯葛无法降价的华裔商家,及指控华裔压迫马来人,巫统不但没有因此而惩罚沙比里,却仍然相信非巫裔及温和派巫裔会盲目支持国阵。

同一个时候,国阵还在做出政治算计,认为他们的种族主义及极端言论甚至歧视非巫裔,都将会赢得马来选票,而且不会失去非巫裔选票。当然,软弱的马华总会长拿督斯里廖中莱在这件事上根本帮不上忙。前马华总会长蔡细历对于廖中莱辩称首相了解马华的立场,批评廖中莱不只软弱,根本就是在狡辩,蔡细历的批评对极了。

首相署发表文告维护伊斯迈沙比里,而不是廖中莱所意指的作出谴责,证明了当廖中莱在狡辩及表现软弱。更糟的是,国防部长希山慕丁更指廖中莱及其副部长拿督斯里魏家祥并没有在内阁提起,要求伊斯迈沙比里收回这项不实的种族主义言论、道歉并辞掉内阁一职。

很多非马来人及温和的马来人实在无法明白,若马华真的对依斯迈就华裔的恶意及充满种族主义的侮辱言论感到生气的话,为什么廖中莱还可以在内阁会议后,如此开怀地与依斯迈合照? 这就是对外说一套,在内阁讲完全不同的一套之最经典案例。廖中莱及魏家祥能否解释,为何他们现在已经忽略了依斯迈反华人的言论呢?

华社就此感到生气及被伤害,因为他们被怪罪于一些根本不是他们责任内的事。无论如何,华社将会以和平及理性的态度去应对,并将在未来很长的一段时间内,都牢牢记住巫统的这些种族化谎言。华社当然也不会忘记马华及民政内阁部长对他们的背叛,因为这些人不敢在内阁会议上说出正义的言辞,也不敢为人民的辛酸发表任何谈话。
