MCA’s “Empty Fortress” An Empty Threat As MCA Has Never Resisted The Temptations Of Privilege And Perks Associated With Posts And Positions To Fight For Principles Of Right And Wrong.(en/cn)

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.

马华的“空城计”只是在吓唬人,因为马华从来不会为了捍卫什么大是大非的原则,抗拒过官职、官位带来的特权和好处的诱惑。

拿督李景胜昨天宣誓就任砂州助理基建和通讯部长,这证明国阵的“空城计”策略是用来恐吓华裔选民,要他们投国阵否则政府内就没有华裔代表。这个策略是为了逼使华裔社会远离行动党。

很明显地这是大选前的威胁,但是,大选后他们还是会得到一官半职,正如人联党的拿督黄顺舸和拿督李景胜那样,国阵领袖从来不会为了捍卫什么大是大非的原则,抗拒官职、官位带来的特权和好处的诱惑。令人伤心的是,马华总会长拿督斯里蔡细历竟允许首相拿督斯里纳吉和副首相丹斯里慕尤丁将砂州选举成绩种族化,而不是把它当成人民求变的民主呼唤。

没有人会相信马华会如他们所威胁的那样,当选民在来届大选拒绝马华时,他们会真的拒绝任何官职或官位。再说,如果选民拒绝国阵,为什么马华不敢退出国阵?不论马华在大选里赢多赢少,他们还是可以保有四个次要的部长职。

正如民政党主席丹斯里许子根博士在2008年大选承诺,他绝不会“走后门”成为上议员及部长,或像人联党拿督黄顺舸,违背党的意愿,秘密地接受被委任为砂州内阁成员,没有任何马华领袖会拒绝及放弃他们一直在政治事业所争取的高官机会。

前马华总会长拿督翁诗杰已经揭穿蔡细历是一个没有原则的领袖,他不能“讲到做到”,指示他的霹雳州和森美兰州行政议员辞职。蔡细历也没有勇气叫马华四名内阁部长辞职,因为马华在2008年大选中惨败。这再次证明,马华的斗争不是为了原则,而是为了官职,不是为了人民,而是为了官位。

说到底,各种事情一次又一次地证明,马华有没有在内阁里并不重要,因为马华只是巫统的傀儡。很多影响马来西亚人的课题都没有受到关注,贪污还是那么猖獗,以致在2000-2008年期间,我国共流失了8880亿令吉的非法资金或“黑钱”。

当巫统单方面地决定邀请回教党加入国阵时,马华也不敢反对巫统这种不民主的独裁决定。反过来,还敢威胁马来西亚人行使不投给马华的民主权利。
