After more than 24 hours have gone by, I am surprised that Lim Kit Siang still has not provided us with his thoughts on what his mentor, Lee Kuan Yew had said.
Anyway, there is another reason why Lim Kit Siang went silent on Lee Kuan Yew’s interview with the New York Times. This will be shown in the later part of this article.
But firstly, it is not like Lim Kit Siang to be silent when an opportunity to crucify the government comes along his away. Even for the smallest of an issue, he would find a way to find fault with the government.
Is there not an ounce of goodness our government has that would merit a tiny praise?
Thus, the level of opposition in this country is not yet mature. They will never, ever pay compliment to the government for any success this country has produced. Just look at his blog. All doom and gloom.
The infantile Lim Kit Siang will cry like a baby over the smallest of issue and spun whatever success stories into something bad.
Therefore it is mindboggling to see Lim Kit Siang did not spin Lee Kuan Yew’s apparent attacks on Malaysia last week.
Apart from the divisive politics Lim Kit Siang is playing (as exposed in the previous article), Lee Kuan Yew made a swipe at the communist front as well as the communists’ sympathisers in the democratic government.
We all know that DAP and Lim Kit Siang is a great admirer of the murderous Chin Peng and his band of violent Communist Party of Malaya. Most of DAP leaders currently openly praised Chin Peng for his communist struggle.
And we all know the reasons why the racial riots of 1969 started. The biggest reason was when the communist elements in DAP and Gerakan at that time openly instigated the masses with their vile insults and unearthly provocations.
Thus, Lee Kuan Yew uttered these words below which greatly coincide with DAP and Lim Kit Siang’s brand of racial politics:
“Well, yes, because otherwise they are running around and causing havoc playing on Chinese language and culture, and accusing me of destroying Chinese education. You’ve not been here when the Communists were running around. They do not believe in the democratic process. They don’t believe in one man, one vote. They believe in one bullet, one vote. They had killer squads. But they at the same time had a united front exploiting the democratic game. It gave them cover. But my business, my job was to make sure that they did not succeed. Sometimes you just got to lock the leaders up. They are confusing the people. The reality is that if you allow these people to work up animosity against the government because it’s keeping down the Chinese language, because we’ve promoted English, keeping down Chinese culture because you have allowed English literature, and we suppress our Chinese values and the Chinese language, the Chinese press, well, you will break up the society. They harp on these things when they know they are not true. They know that if you actually do in Chinese language and culture, the Chinese will riot and the society must break up.”
There you go. Siapa makan cili, dia terasa pedas.
Lim Kit Siang and his ilk must stand down and embrace this country for what it is. The agents of disunity such as the DAP, Dong Jiao Zong and Suqiu must ask themselves whether their struggle will be beneficial for this country, or otherwise.
Lee Kuan Yew made an insightful revelation to us about his own people.
Singapore has their own Constitution that Lee Kuan Yew strongly supported.
Our Constitution must be respected. The third principle of the Rukun Negara is ‘keluhuran Perlembagaan‘.
Do all of you chinese and tamil school graduates understand that meaning?
Can Lim Kit Siang embrace the Rukun Negara wholeheartedly now?
You are Malaysian, governed by the Constitution and yet you openly rebuke the supremacy of the Constitution by instigating divisions within the society? If you do not understand the meaning of national unity, and worse, I suspect you openly inciting people to support racial segregation within our society, please do the honourable thing and retire from politics.
Malaysians do not want you as a leader in any type or form because you do not add value to us.
