There is no further doubt who NOT to vote for on May 5
Came across this news article from the Harakah Daily. After reading it, do you honestly still believe that parties like UMNO, PPP, MIC, MCA, PBS, SUPP, IPF, MAKKAL SATHI, HINDRAF, etc deserves our vote on May 5.
The statements made are crystal clear. There is no further doubt that PERKASA is part of the BN and any vote for, say, MCA, will definitely means a vote for PERKASA. The other point is, by voting in the BN, we will continue to be treated second class because we do not wish to assimilate. Now you know what to do on May 5.
Zulkifli Noordin, Vice Chairman of PERKASA nominated by UMNO to stand as a candidate for Shah Alam. Looking on is Donald Lim (right) of MCA, with a satisfied grin on his face, delighted with the choice of candidate.
While UMNO-linked Perkasa's alliance with Barisan Nasional is not a secret, a confirmation to this effect has put to rest any suspicion otherwise, especially among remnants of non-Malay support in the coalition.
The right wing group's patron, none other than former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad, said in an interview with ntv7’s Chat Time programme last night that Perkasa was working for BN.
“They say at the most BN will get 20 percent of their (non-Malay) votes. But we cannot ignore Perkasa because they are for us,” said Mahathir, in yet another defence of the group whose leaders had attracted condemnations for racist remarks.
On April 20, BN’s nominee for Pasir Mas announced that he was not going ahead with his candidacy despite being to do so by BN chairman Najib Razak.
Instead, Che Johan Che Pa threw his support behind Ibrahim Ali, the Perkasa chief, who is contesting on an independent ticket against PAS's Nik Mohamad Abduh Nik Abdul Aziz, son of revered Kelantan leader Tuan Guru Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat.
BN has also placed Perkasa vice-chairman Zulkifli Noordin in Shah Alam. The decision also drew support from the coalition's troubled Chinese-only party MCA.
Mahathir said had BN rejected Perkasa, the coalition could lose more support from the people.
"You say you do not want to vote for us (because we put up Perkasa candidates), but if we reject the people who are for us, where will the BN be? This is a reaction to what they say,” Malaysiakini quoted Mahathir as saying.
The UMNO strongman also hinted that the Chinese did not deserve to be treated equally due to 'refusal to assimilate'.
“So you can continue with your culture, your language and religion. Hence, you cannot be the same as others who adopted the idea of assimilation... you cannot expect the same if you do not want to assimilate," he went on. --------------------------------------------------------------------- And this is a letter from one Stephen Ng :
I have to respond to Dr Chua Soi Lek’s defence of the Indian community basher king, Zul Noordin. Even if it is just a short letter, I feel justified after speaking up against Soi Lek’s hypocrisy.
I don’t think it is true that Zul Nordin uttered such words 10 years ago, because he mentioned about the statue in Batu Caves, which was only built a few years ago.
Also, because of whom he is, Zul Nordin has finally found the flock that he belongs – Perkasa, Umno-BN. And, he is now, in the same camp as Soi Lek, where people play race politics.
Whatever it is, he is now vice president of Perkasa, an extremist group and a right hand arm of Umno. How can Zul Nordin justify himself to be a champion of the Hindu community now, as claimed by Najib Tun Razak, when his organisation is basically racist in nature?
If Zul Nordin is what he claims to be now, he should urge his patron, Mahathir Mohamad stay true to his identity as an Indian Muslim, and take on the lineage of his father. There is no culture in this world where its people take on the lineage of the mother.
My challenge to Zul Nordin is that he should either challenge his patron to declare himself to be nothing other than a Mamak Muslim and be known from now on with his true name, Mahathir a/l Iskandar Kutty, or start identifying himself as Mahathir bin Wan Tempayan (taking on the name of the mother).
We are proud of our Mamak food as fellow Malaysians, but the old Mamak himself has denied his own heritage. Zul Nordin is the best person to speak to his patron, now that he is a champion of the Indian community.
On another point, Soi Lek said that the DAP has played up hate politics by painting BN and MCA supporters as “traitors” to the Chinese race. Let me tell the former minister of health that it was not MCA that the people hate, but Soi Lek himself.
The Chinese people still had hope in people like Ong Tee Keat, but since Soi Lek took the helm, he has turned MCA into a big laughing stock – that a porn star can still be its president! Zulkifli Nordin mocking the Indians.
