Lim Kit Siang’s guru on racial politics, Lee Kuan Yew had given a blistering condemnation of Malaysia a while back. Of which, Tun Mahathir Mohamad had managed to straighten out his nemesis with his equally blistering gem of an article in his blog.
That is expected.
What is unexpected is the muted response and non reaction from Lim Kit Siang himself. This student of Lee Kuan Yew did not even make a squeak on his blog about what his political guru had said.
Because, Lee Kuan Yew had stated this one statement in his interview:
“Now we have a very polarised Malaysia — Malays, Chinese and Indians in separate schools, living separate lives and not really getting on with one another. You read them. That’s bad for us as close neighbours,” he said.
This is the most damaging statement from the de-facto ruler of Singapore which had dented Lim Kit Siang’s chinese-centric DAP.
As we all know, Lim Kit Siang is against having a one streamlined national schools in our country. He is the main proponent of vernacular schools. Because of this strong support of vernacular schools, Lim Kit Siang is never, as he wished to proclaim himself as having a Malaysian first mentality.
He who is nauseatingly asking people to declare this and that should make the first proclamation by saying that he is 100% for national unity and harmony.
Lim Kit Siang, support Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua.
Or be exposed as the pathetic hypocrite that you really are. Extremist like you must not be a leader in the first place. Yet you have the cheek to call other people as extremist?
When will you?
If you want our children to remain segregated (just like what your guru mentioned earlier), you are now the main obstacle to 1Malaysia concept.
Right now, there are more than 200 bloggers showing support for the Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua campaign.
It is actually a possible thing to do.
Lee Kuan Yew abolished chinese and tamil schools almost overnight.
To Dato’ Sri Najib Tun Razak, please do the right thing.
