We have read yesterday how a selectively absent-minded person has forgotten how racist Lim Kit Siang is..
Lim Kit Siang can try distance himself from the 13 May 1969 incident but his racist traits predates the incident.
On Sunday 1 December 1968, five months before the 13 May 1969 incident, Lim Kit Siang incited the Chinese at a DAP rally at the Salak South New Village by announcing the ‘Serdang 20 Points‘.
Among the 20 points demanded by Lim Kit Siang were:
- LAND to be given to all landless, regardless of race. The only yardstick should be need.
The fact that since its establishment 18 years ago, no land had been allocated to the villagers in the Serdang Bahru new village is a terrible indictment on the racialism and incompetence of the Alliance government on the question of land administration and distribution.
- ABOLITION of the division of Malaysians into ‘Bumiputeras’ and ‘Non-Bumiputeras’.
- OFFICIAL STATUS to be granted to Chinese, Tamil and English with Malay as the sole national language to be the common language of expression and communication among Malaysians.
- FREE USE of Chinese, Tamil and English in the Parliament, State Assemblies and in public notices and government correspondence.
- REPUDIATION of the Abdul Rahman Talib Education Report which seeks to convert all schools, whether primary or secondary, into schools of exclusively Malay-media in instruction and examination.
- ABOLITION of the distinction between ‘national’ and ‘national-type’ schools.
- ADOPTION of an integrated education system, with the major language as media of instruction and examination, and their recognition as ‘national’ schools so long as they are Malaysian-oriented and teach the National Language as a compulsory second language.
- ACCEPTANCE of Malaysian literature, all writing by Malaysians on Malaysian themes, irrespective of the language used, whether Malay, Chinese, Tamil or English.
If you still remember the moment the Barisan Alternatif came into power in Perak, Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin who was the DAP-chosen Menteri Besar then awarded a 999-year freehold status to 60,000 lots of land at new villages in the state.
Nizar became a loyal Kit Siang servant by realising part of the latter’s dreams.
Three months after making the 20-point declaration, Kit Siang criticised the Assistant Education Minister, Encik Lee Siok Yew who in his speech at the Sekolah Rendah Jenis Kebangsaan (Cina) Yoke Nam, encouraged the Chinese to converse in the National Language at home.
Accusing Encik Lee Siok Yew and the MCA of selling Chinese interests to the Malays, Kit Siang said that UMNO fanatics will not permit the other languages free growth, and that is why they (UMNO) do not permit the use of Chinese and other languages in the Parliament, State Assemblies, correspondence with government, public notices, and as a media of instruction and examination in schools.
Ultimately according to Kit Siang, the UMNO fanatics want to see the end of the Chinese and other languages altogether – so that in public places, shops, homes, only the National Language is used.
That is the behaviour of Kit Siang who an absent-minded old man says is not a racist. Thus it is hoped that we will all remember our history and the few who do not wish to see the next generations live together in peace and harmony.
May we do not forget easily like some.
Semalam kita telah membaca bagaimana seorang yang mudah lupa telah melupakan betapa rasisnya Lim Kit Siang.
Lim Kit Siang boleh cuba untuk menjauhkan dirinya dari peristiwa 13 Mei 1969 tetapi sikap rasisnya ternyata dengan jelas sebelum berlakunya peristiwa tersebut.
Pada hari Ahad 1 Disember 1968, lima bulan sebelum berlakunya peristiwa 13 Mei 1969, Lim Kit Siang telah mengapi-apikan semangat orang Cina di sebuah ceramah DAP di Kampung Baru Salak Selatan dengan mengumumkan ‘20 Perkara Demokrasi Sosialis Serdang‘.
Di antara 20 perkara yang dituntut oleh Kit Siang adalah seperti berikut:
- TANAH mesti diberi kepada semua yang tidak mempunyai tanah, tanpa mengira kaum. Sejak terbentuknya Kampung Baru Serdang, tiada tanah telah diperuntukkan kepada para penduduk dan ini adalah bukti nyata sikap rasis dan ketidakupayaan kerajaan Perikatan dalam hal pentadbiran dan pengagihan tanah.
- PENGHAPUSAN pembahagian rakyat Malaysia kepada ‘Bumiputera’ dan ‘Bukan Bumiputera’.
- TARAF KHAS diberikan kepada Bahasa Cina, Tamil dan Inggeris dengan Bahasa Melayu sebagai Bahasa Kebangsaan untuk digunakan dalam perhubungan antara kaum.
- PENGGUNAAN BEBAS Bahasa Cina, Tamil dan Inggeris dalam Parlimen, Dewan Undangan Negeri-Negeri dan di notis awam dan persuratan kerajaan.
- PENOLAKAN Laporan Abdul Rahman Talib yang bertujuan untuk menukar semua sekolah, sama ada rendah mahupun menengah, ke sekolah yang menggunakan Bahasa Melayu semata-mata untuk tujuan pengajaran, pembelajaran dan peperiksaan.
- PENGHAPUSAN kategori ‘Sekolah Kebangsaan’ dan ‘Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan’.
- PENGGUNAAN sebuah sistem pendidikan yang bersepadu, dengan bahasa-bahasa utama (Cina, Tamil dan Inggeris) digunakan dalam pengajaran, pembelajaran dan peperiksaan, dan pengiktirafan sekolah-sekolah tersebut sebagai ‘Sekolah Kebangsaan’ asalkan ianya berpaksikan Malaysia dan mengajar Bahasa Kebangsaan sebagai Bahasa Kedua.
- PENERIMAAN kesusasteraan Malaysia yang ditulis oleh rakyat Malaysia sama ada penulisan tersebut adalah dalam bahasa-bahasa selain Bahasa Melayu.
Sekiranya anda masih ingat, sebaik sahaja Barisan Alternatif menguasai tampuk pemerintahan di negeri Perak, Mohammad Nizar Jamaludin yang merupakan Menteri Besar pilihan DAP ketika itu telah memberikan hak milik tanah kekal selama 999 tahun kepada 60,000 lot tanah kampung-kampung baru di negeri tersebut.
Nizar dengan taatnya telah merealisasikan sebahagian daripada impian-impian Kit Siang.
Tiga bulan kemudian di tempat yang sama, Kit Siang telah mengkritik Penolong Menteri Pendidikan, Encik Lee Siok Yew yang telah berucap di Sekolah Rendah Jenis Kebangsaan (Cina) Yoke Nam, menggalakkan penggunaan Bahasa Kebangsaan di rumah oleh kaum Cina.
Menuduh Encik Lee Siok Yew dan MCA sebagai menjual kepentingan kaum Cina kepada Melayu, Kit Siang berkata fanatik UMNO tidak akan membenarkan bahasa lain tumbuh dengan bebas, dan itulah sebabnya mereka (UMNO) tidak membenarkan penggunaan bahasa Cina dan lain-lain di Parlimen, Dewan Undangan Negeri, persuratan kerajaan, notis awam, dan sebagai media pengajaran dan peperiksaan di sekolah-sekolah.
Tambah Kit Siang lagi, akhirnya fanatik UMNO mahu melihat terkuburnya bahasa Cina dan lain-lain – supaya di tempat-tempat awam, kedai, rumah, hanya Bahasa Kebangsaan digunakan.
Demikianlah sikap Lim Kit Siang yang dianggap kini oleh seorang tua yang mudah lupa sebagai bukan rasis. Adalah diharap agar kita mengingati sejarah negara ini dan apa yang telah dilakukan oleh segelintir orang yang tidak mahu lihat generasi yang akan datang hidup dalam keadaan aman dan muhibbah.
Mudah-mudahan kita semua tidak mudah lupa.
The Malays don’t forget easily. Only Malays who have not experienced it will forget. The non-Malays would sure forget.
The title above is based on a quote made in 2013 by someone who forgets everything easily.
The person who easily forgets (possibly due to age factor because forgetfulness, senility dan loss of sanity are signs that death is approaching) said that his best friend Lim Kit Siang uses the ‘Malaysian Malaysia’ principle that denies the Malays from enjoying the privileges accorded to them in their land of origin as not being racist.
Lim Kit Siang of late has been trying to distance himself from the 13 May 1969 incident by saying that he was in Kota Kinabalu when the incident happened.
It is true that Kit Siang was arrested in Kota Kinabalu after making a speech inciting the Sabahans to hate the government and spreading lies that the government does not recognise the status of Sabahan Bumiputeras as equals to the Malays in the Peninsular. However, we know that the seeds of hatred had been planted long before that.
On 25 January 1969, Kit Siang slammed the United Democratic Party (UDP) for behaving like the MCA turning its back against its struggles with the DAP to establish the Universiti Merdeka and to champion the Chinese language, and to not accept the policy where the Malaysian culture must be based in the Malay culture; the Malaysian literature must be written in Malay; and multilingualism is not allowed as only Bahasa Malaysia is allowed.
Kit Siang said the above at a DAP rally in Datuk Keramat, Pulau Pinang on the abovementioned date.
He accused the government then of failure to establish and implement the fundamental concept of Malaysian Malaysia where the country does not belong to one single race and the use of a single language and single culture is an oppression against the other races.
You can read his speech titled ‘The Crusade for Malaysian Malaysia‘ so you do not forget easily like Kit Siang’s best friend who now champions Kit Siang’s struggles in order to destroy what have been protected in the Federal Constitution since the formation of this country.
Melayu sebenarnya tak mudah lupa. Hanya Melayu yang tidak pernah mengalaminya sahaja yang mudah lupa. Yang bukan Melayu sudah tentu mudah lupa.
Tajuk di atas adalah ungkapan dalam tahun 2013 yang dibuat seorang yang mudah lupa segala-galanya.
Malah, orang yang mudah lupa tersebut (mungkin kerana faktor umur sebab menjadi pelupa, nyanyuk dan hilang kewarasan adalah tanda maut hampir tiba) menyebut bahawa rakan baiknya Lim Kit Siang menggunakan prinsip ‘Malaysian Malaysia’ yang melarang orang Melayu daripada menikmati keistimewaan di tanah air asal mereka sendiri.
Lim Kit Siang akhir-akhir ini sering cuba untuk menjauhkan diri beliau dari peristiwa 13 Mei 1969 dengan mengatakan beliau berada di Kota Kinabalu semasa tragedi tersebut berlaku.
Memang benar Kit Siang ditangkap di Kota Kinabalu selepas membuat ceramah menghasut penduduk Sabah membenci kerajaan di Semenanjung dan juga menabur fitnah bahawa kerajaan tidak memandang Bumiputera di Sabah setaraf dengan orang Melayu Semenanjung. Namun kita tahu bibit-bibit pengapian bukan berlaku dalam sekelip mata, malah bertahun sebelum itu.
Pada 25 Januari 1969, Kit Siang telah menghentam Parti Demokatik Bersatu (UDP) kerana bersikap seperti MCA membelakangkan perjuangan bersama DAP untuk menubuhkan Universiti Merdeka dan menjuarai Bahasa Cina, dan menerima polisi di mana budaya Malaysia mestilah berasaskan budaya Melayu; kesusasteraan Malaysia mestilah ditulis dalam Bahasa Malaysia (Melayu); dan bahubahasa (penggunaan pelbagai bahasa) tidak dibenarkan kerana hanya satu bahasa sahaja iaitu Bahasa Malaysia dibenarkan.
Kit Siang berkata sedemikian semasa ceramah umum DAP di Datuk Keramat, Pulau Pinang pada tarikh yang disebut di atas.
Beliau menuduh kerajaan ketika itu gagal mengadakan dan melaksanakan konsep asas Malaysian Malaysia di mana negara ini bukan milik Melayu sahaja dan penggunaan hanya satu bahasa dan satu budaya adalah bersikap menindas terhadap lain-lain kaum.
Anda boleh baca ucapan beliau yang bertajuk ‘Jihad Untuk Malaysian Malaysia‘ ini supaya anda tidak mudah lupa seperti rakan baik Kit Siang yang sanggup mendokong perjuangan Kit Siang kini untuk menghapuskan apa yang telah terpelihara dalam Perlembagaan Persekutuan sejak terbentuknya negara ini.
Raveentharan a/l V Subramaniam, former Parti Keadilan Rakyat state assemblyman for Batu Uban in Pulau Pinang is in hot soup after the Inspector-General of Police instructed the Royal Malaysian Police for the former’s seditious post in hi Facebook account.
Raveentharan, a Georgetown-based lawyer who was dropped from the candidates’ list during the 13th General Elections quickly apologised to Muslims in Malaysia saying that he did not mean to offend Muslims and that his best friends are Muslims.
Raveentharan is not new to controversies. In 2009, two SMS messages were made viral, sent by an unknown alleging that he sodomised and physically abused his ex-wife. In 2013, he was dropped from PKR’s list of candidates for the 13th General Elections in favour of T Jayabalan.
Below are screen captures made from his Facebook account, courtesy of Dr Aznil Hisham:
Suddenly Raventharan is not so brave anymore. And as for his apology, I leave that to you and for the authorities to decide.
I would like to see him charged in courts.
The above was taken from Mahathir’s latest blog posting entitled ‘Propaganda.’ In this posting he likens Najib Razak to being a Nazi with pro-Najib bloggers such as BigDog and Rocky Bru, former staunch supporters of his, as being the Little Goebbels for Najib Razak. Whatever label that you wish to put on BigDog, I know for one thing his loyalty, other than to the nation, is to the Malays and the Malay cause. Like me, the straw that broke the ‘sympathy-for-Mahathir‘ camel’s back was when Mahathir joined the BERSIH protest last year, licking his own gob as he backtracked on his own words to not work with the opposition and condemn street demonstrations.
Attacking the bloggers,if the defence of Najib Razak or attacks on behalf of him is not working, is not wise at all. It goes to show that the likes of BigDog and Rocky are in fact making an impact on Mahathir’s struggle to oust the Premier. Likening Najib Razak to a Nazi while he is in Germany is not prudent at all. It shows how insensitive Mahathir is and a lack of decorum on his part. Then again, when has Mahathir ever showed to possess any sense of decorum at all, if any?
However, history has proven that there is someone with a racist and anti-semitic traits amongst us. Mahathir Mohamed is his name. So many things that he had said even before his premiership that points to these traits. Then again, what is Mahathir without his acid tongue?
First and foremost according to this blog, Mahathir s/o Iskandar Kutty is ashamed of his heritage. In fact, Philip Bowring who was an Editor for the Far Eastern Economic Review and a South China Morning Post columnist once wrote:
‘In his new book, A New Deal for Asia, he writes about his father in such a way as to imply that he was a Malay dedicated to the improvement of his fellow Malays rather than the hard-working Indian immigrant and government servant that he was. No mention of Dr Mahathir’s Indian Muslim background ever appears in the media. The subject is taboo.’
And UMNO suffered for 22 years being the cover for Mahathir to hide his true identity while creating a Herrenvolk culture to underscore his superiority especially over the Indians. In fact, he is now surrounded by people like him who could be termed as Ehrenarier, who are neither Malay but nor would they admit to who they really are. In 1922, Hitler said in a conversation with Major Joseph Hell (Josef Hell, “Aufzeichnung,” 1922, ZS 640, p. 5, Institut für Zeitgeschichte) that when he has power, “the destruction of the Jews will be my first and most important job. As soon as I have power, I shall have gallows after gallows erected, for example, in Munich on the Marienplatz-as many of them as traffic allows. Then the Jews will be hanged one after another, and they will stay hanging until they stink.”
Mahathir said something similar in 1979 about the Vietnamese boat people that was quoted by the Associated Press saying Malaysia would expel 75,540 boat people as well as “arm itself with legal powers to shoot new arrivals on sight.”
In October 2003, just before he left office, he made an anti-semitic remark in October 2003 that got played up by the Western media. Malaysia is labeled anti-Semitic until today, no thank you to Mahathir. While we are anti-Zionism, I doubt Malaysia is anti-Jew. One of my former bosses is a Jew who even contributed to a mosque for iftar during Ramadhan.
That is Mahathir being brash and abrasive for you…just so he could get somewhere.
I won’t write about how anti-Chinese Mahathir is. He enriches a few Chinese businessmen so they would be indebted to him, but at the same time help him to keep the mass of Chinese crabs in a barrel firmly inside the barrel. You can read more in his ultra-Malay book:
I read that when I found it in my father’s study room back in 1976. It made me worry when Mahathir replaced Hussein Onn as the Prime Minister in 1981. Since then, the DAP Chinese have been using the excuse of being victimised by the Malays, in particular by UMNO. Today, whenever the DAP creates racial tension and the Malays react, they would cry victimisation.
Who are we to blame? Erasing two decades of damage done to Malaysia by Mahathir is not easy. The interracial resentment has set in deep and the outcome of the General Elections of 2008 was the direct result of that. The fact that his followers are still worshipping him for his past while turning a blind eye to his present role as a one-man demolition derby does not help either. He had probably read ‘Mein Kampf‘ before writing ‘Malay Dilemma‘. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that the Supreme Leader of Parti Pribumi was once referred to as HITLER.
Perhaps, we need a proper Entnazifizierung program for them. But until then, Mahathir will just stand proudly while watching his band of Schutzstaffel march past him to do his bidding.

- 1 X Big Kick in Jeff Ooi’s butt
Jeff Ooi’s done it again! The latest Muslim he had targetted was the late Haron Din who passed away early Friday morning (Malaysian time).
In a Tweet in reply to a similarly rude Tweet at 1.41pm on 16th September 2016, Jeff Ooi used Adios Harun Din. It may have been alright albeit sounding disrespectful had it been a stand-alone Tweet, replying to an earlier rude Tweet made it sound much like the cocktail drink I posted above.
It is reported that Jeff Ooi has deleted the Tweet but no apology has been made. An apology is not a culture embedded in Jeff Ooi’s DNA.
Almost three years ago, the Member of Parliament for Jelutong drew the wrath of the members of the public as well as from Pakatan assemblymen when he called officers from the Majlis Perbandaran Pulau Pinang ‘kucing kurap.’ A defiant Jeff Ooi refused to apologise for the remark. He did apologise a week later but only after he was instructed by the late Karpal Singh to do so.
A year after being elected Jeff Ooi had called Mohd Razali Abdullah, a MPPP councillor an Islamic terrorist. Razali was a member of the Jemaah Islah Malaysia, a registered organisation that had a close tie with the DAP Socialist Youth (DAPSY). It took an order from recently-charged Chief Minister of Pulau Pinang, Lim Guan Eng, before he retracted his remark. However, to date, Jeff Ooi has never offered any form of apology to Razali.
In 2011, Jeff Ooi organised a Christian function at the Red Rock hotel in Pulau Pinang where Sarawak pastors were his guests. The function, according to Big Dog and Helen Ang, was to pledge their support for the Christian agenda to have a leader of their faith to become the Prime Minister of Malaysia.
I blame the voters of Jelutong for returning him to the MP seat. I also pity them for having a wretched outsider to become their voice. And I would like to remind them to give Jeff Ooi the boot in the next general election.
We don’t need racists and chauvinists in this country, and we don’t need people who have very little respect for others to lead us. Come GE14, should say to Jeff Ooi “Adios Motherfucker!”
