Lesson 1969, Voting and Chew Mei Fun ?

Sometimes I feel so bored about writing socio-political blogs. Reading Malaysiakini and Malaysia Today makes me feel that everything seems to be repeating. The same set of blunders, and inefficiency of the Hadhari government.

For example, Lulu mentioned something familiar in her post " OOOOOO Chew Mei Fun.... Lulu Says Its Time For You To Go ". It seems Lulu said certain politician gave this comment in Chinese:

"If we do not have enough representation in the Barisan Nasional, then to the Chinese community, the lesson of 1969 is sufficient. I think we cannot afford another such scenario.”

I am not sure how the brain of this Miss Chew works, but if a lack of Chinese in Barisan Nasional would trigger lesson of 1969, I would like to ask this lady whether totally (100%) voting away Barisan Nasional and all its racial representation of Malay, Chinese and Indian, be it UMNO, MCA or MIC would solve the problem at hand?

Wouldn't that be a good solution? After all there is so much dissatisfaction in all racial communities. Furthermore, there are parties like PKR, PAS and DAP. There is never a lack of alternatives. So, is that what Miss Chew wants?

Otherwise I would like to ask Miss Chew the reason she choose to mention such a fearful phrase. If Lulu had given the right translation and information, I would recommend Chew Mei Fun to leave her post. The society needs Members of Parliament who can perform efficiently and not those that use such words for suspectful motives.

In the meantime, there is an interesting read in Hiroblog2007's blog titled: Glossary of BN terms .

1969 was the election year when MCA was defeated very badly, resulting in the lost of a few key ministerial post and cabinet influence. Basically the Chinese voice was almost silenced. Since than, MCA has strengthen and proven to be the only effective champion for the Malaysian Chinese and their interests. MCA has represented the Chinese communities well and need a solid mandate if they are to strengthen further. If you decide to vote opposition form the sake of expressing your frustration, then it will dilute the Chinese representation in the Government, then all the MCA’s efforts since 1969 will be weakened. We must learn from history to plan for the future.

Hey anonymous 04 Feb 2008.

Talking about BN, so Gerakan is not a champion for chinese since you say MCA is "the only effective champion for the community" ?

MCA has been weakened since 1969. Come on, look at the keris issue. What have they said about it?

Not everybody who votes for opposition because they feel frustrated. Some do that because they want a change to all those crap and bullshit.

Then, some chinese do not think from the chinese perspective anymore. They want Malaysia as a whole, Malaysians, don't care whether they are Malays, Chinese or Indians to get better things and see an end to the politics as a form of money-making industry.

Making money is OK, but priority must be on taking care the Malaysian community and everyone's rights.

Hey, are you from MCA? Gosh, why did you talk like that?
