Below is what I 'd term as a sad journalistic commentary about how everything - read non-issue- is desperately being turned into an "issue" hoping its readers, I am referring to Malaysiakini, taking real material and making feeble attempts to discredit the ruling party under Prime Minister Dato' Sri Najib Tun Razak.
Malaysiakini, make no mistake for come the general elections I believe the Malaysian-Chinese community votes will see Barisan Nasional (BN) be given a two-thirds or more majority for average Malaysian -Chinese, Malays or Indians and others - are just fed-up of constantly having their common sense insulted by the ilk of Anwar Ibrahim and his band of desperate followers.
The fact that Rosmah and their son Mohd Ashman were singing Mandarin songs had nothing to do with fishing for Chinese votes, and this is a good example of how an opposition website, probably funded by Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim, insults the Malaysian-Chinese community implying that the fact that the prime minister's wife and son were singing Mandarin songs can turn the Chinese votes to the BN?
Malaysiakini! It only shows Rosmah can sing Chinese songs and any other songs, that is all, and plus the fact that the wife of out prime minister can actually sing! No more no less, morons!
Below is what Malaysiakini's column VOX POPULI can come out with in the website by insulting the intelligence of average Malaysians as a whole:
'The PM has turned to his family to help woo the Chinese back. Desperate times calls for desperate measures but getting his family to do a 'Sound of Music' number is pathetic.' Rosmah and son serenade Chinese business do Doc: Times are really bad for Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak. He needs the Chinese votes more then ever in view of the dissipating Indian and Malay voters if he and BN are to scrape through the next general elections. MCA's never-ending squabbles and Umno's ultra-Malay stance have alienated the Chinese from BN. Getting no support from MCA and even his Umno party, he has turned to his family to help woo the Chinese back. Desperate times calls for desperate measures but getting his family to do a 'Sound of Music' number is pathetic. Teh: Someone should tell Norashman that this song has already been taken up by PAS. The 'Moon Represents My Heart' is actually the PAS moon symbol and not Umno's 'keris'. Najib and Rosmah Mansor should try singing some other song. Be more creative and innovative. Don't just copy other people's ideas. By the way the Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Malaysia (ACCIM) and MCA do not represent the Chinese community comprising the hawkers, the factory workers and other ordinary citizens whose votes will matter most to Umno. So pandering to them is barking at the wrong tree (or moon in this case). Foo Wy Len: Ma'am and Junior, a nice try and I thank you for trying but what about Umno's 'Ketuanan Melayu' and the ranting by Perkasa and its ilk?
You may sing the same song 1,000 times or 1,000 other Mandarin songs but one thing for certain - MCA and ACCIM may represent themselves but definitely not the ordinary/simple Chinese like me who just want to be treated as a Malaysian and have a better tomorrow for my children. There must be more Chinese like me than all the Chinese in MCA/ACCIM/Gerakan/Supp combined. Gk: Najib is still living in a denial mode when he says 'The Chinese community needs your (I presume MCA and Gerakan's) leadership'. The fact is that the Chinese community has already abandoned the whole of the BN and not just MCA and Gerakan. All right-thinking Malaysians irrespective of our colour and beliefs are favouring fair play, natural justice for all, meritocracy, institutions of integrity with the high morals and diversity that we find in Pakatan Rakyat. As long as you choose to stick to your idea of Malay supremacy and supporting the racist Perkasa, your propaganda of a '1Malaysia' alone will not be able to win you back support from right-thinking Malaysians. Sedarlah kamu dari keangkuhan. Yang kami idamkan dari Umno and BN ialah apa yang dapat kami cari pada Pakatan Rakyat. Kalau anda dapat membuat demikian, alangkah lebih bagus bagi rakyat? Rakyat ada lebih pilihan, bukan setakat Pakatan Rakyat saja. Insaflah kamu.
