Why couldn't DAP and PAS join BN, and go for nation building?
Well the answer to my question above is simple, they are both racialist party, one dominated by chauvinist Chinese and the other so-called Islamic-based party which was really an off-shoot of racist Umno people who left to form Pan-Malayan Islamic Party (PMIP) and later they called theemselves PAS.
PAS raison detr'e today, and everyday, is rejecting non-Malays participation in politics in this country.
DAP was a tall order from Singapore's Lee Kuan Yew who asked his young stooge then, Lim Kit Siang, to stay back and try to make a Chinese nation out of Malaysia....at all cost!
PMIP was formed because the majority in Umno wanted to accommodate all races to be Malayan and opted for nation-building together, and these people (PMIP) just want to reject the Chinese in any government they perceived to be only Malay as a political back-bone and Islam as its official religion.
In real effect is PAS never wanted Chinese-Malayan to be part of the decision maker of the country and that is why a group left to form PMIP...which was changed to PAS.
So my reasoning is simple...DAP Chinese is just to superior to mix around with the Malays.
Remember the late Tan Chee Khoon, he was an unfliching Mr Opposition. Anyway you can look it up in the internet to see how Tan Cheen Khoon rose unflinching as a Mr Oppisition.
Well the good thing he did was, while a keen Mr Opposition, to support, to the chagrine of the other opposition DAP under Lim Kit Siang, the New Economic Policy meant to correct economic imbalances between races in the country.
My question is why after 46 years of existence DAP did not make an overture to join BN and go for nation building? My answer is: DAP is a bona fide racialist Chinese party that bends on overthrowing anything perceived to be Malays!
I have sat with Ling Liong Sik for a conversation and interacting with him I never once realised that he was a Chinese, just a good old time fair dinkum Malaysian raised by the Royal Military College folks.
I had the opportunity to hear Tan Siew Sin spoke about the country and was full of admiration for a Finance Minister of Malaysia that guarded our country from any blitz attack on our country's economy.
But I cannot say the same when interacting with Lin Kit Siang and to have a conversation with his son Lim Guan Eng, they have this air of superiority about them and they are so arrogantly smug. I do not feel as though hat I am sitting and having a conversation with my fellow compatriots...so much for that.
In conclusion, I firmly believe both DAP and PAS are positively a racialist parties with their own personal agenda.
DAP wants a a total Chinese regime change in Malaysia, and while PAS, a very simplistic PAS, thought it could trick DAP into a meaningful coalition so they can rule. Truth of the matter both parties cannot see eye to eye with each other.
If DAP cannot see a friendly faces in within UMNO, a more moderate Malay party, I simply cannot imagine in my wildest dream that DAP can coalesced with a fanatical,, Talibanic and hypocritical Islamic party called PAS.
