Being MCA and the sunset of the Chinese cause

.

Without the MCA spirit, what its leaders say and do are despised by its own grassroot and the venerable Chinese newspapers.

In the minds of the grassroot, the real MCA man/woman wouldn’t speak of imagined clash of Islam taking over race. Or to imply that Malaysian Chinese ceases to be a Chinese if he/she cannot speak in Mandarin.

MCA leaders have been unthinkingly caught in a bind of its own making that, being MCA was an absolute requirement to fight for a Chinese cause. The trick worked fine, way back in time before negotiating for 1957’s project Merdeka.

But now it is 2011, with courtesy of compulsory basic primary and some secondary schooling, Malaysians have got some education and been taught some academic thinking skills (I hope you have acquired them skills, if not all, some?).

Shall we ask again does the call “MCA fights for Chinese rights” sounds right today, in the dawning of Bangsa Malaysia?

In light of today’s reality, many wondered if there might possibly be a new lifeline lease to MCA, whether if it has leaders of resolute to rejuvenate MCA from the outdated agenda, that being MCA is not an absolute requirement to fight for a Chinese cause.

It is telling that nothing is done by leaders of MCA so far to give it a new lease of life through an updated constitution.

This jives with the groundswell truth that MCA has always been first and foremost to protect their own businesses and the economic returns.

It is a sunset era for MCA leadership of Chua Soi Lek, Ng Yen Yen, Kong Cho Ha, Chor Chee Heung, Liow Tiong Lai… (Go here to fill up with names and worthiness of MCA Central Committee members)

Will you ask Najib Razak to quit as PM if MCA fail in GE13?

Am very impressed with concerns raised by commentators reacting to Chua Soi Lek’s call to Taib Mahmud to step down cos the old guy’s SUPP couldn’t deliver the Chinese votes.

So, Najib? Want to slap MCA leaders/ministers (Chua Soi Lek, Liow Tiong Lai, Ng Yen Yen, Chor Chee Heung, Kong Chor Ha) or not for their insolence towards 1Malaysia new politics? Make sure you keep this in mind when you do the shuffle for the cabinet, ok?

Read and be entertained:

“Did MCA did better or worse than SUPP in 2008? Do they know that by implication, they will ask Najib to quit UMNO if MCA is wiped out (and MCA WILL be wiped out) in the next GE? Why are you adopting Mahathir, Perkasa and Pembela culture? Sad betrayal of Chinese hopes and trust.”

“There is only bn and mca who went around telling a particular race that they will not have such race in the government if not elected. This is a scare tactic but does not work cos what we want is those to rep us must be of integrity, caring and those corrupt, racialist and now blame others for their doing.Pui to you mca, mahatir, utusan and perkasa.”

“Be careful! Taib will very soon be asking MCA to extinct yourselves for losing Chinese support.”

“.. the political climate has changed and MCA is losing direction as how to function in this new environment. Telling others to quit when they themselves should dissappear”

“Just sorak kosong. Taib will add on MCA joker list to persona-non-grata to the state immigration department under circus clown without state permit.”

“Call for Taib to quit is ungentlemanly. PBB won 100 % and if PBB had taken a beating, Sarawak would most probably be run by Pakatan.”

“Why must MCA always argue their case based on racial lines? Whilst it’s fitting that they can clamour for the ouster of Taib, we ought to put the record straight that it was not only the Chinese who do not support the CM but the other races as well. It was quite coincidental that the majority of the urbanites are Chinese and this was perceived as the actual scenario.”

And this remark by ‘Confused’ says it all for the confused public:

“I just do not know what the MCA is up to making all sorts of statements. I do not support Taib and think he should resign BUT the fact is Sarawak BN won 55 out of 71 seats(77% of the seats) and PBB won all 35 seats it contested. If Taib should quit because he has lost the support of the Chinese community, should not Najib quit too because he has also lost the support of the Chinese community too and has a lower percentage of seats?”
