Top 10 Reasons Why Pakatan Rakyat Is Lowering Your Standards

The standards we are talking about is the standard of being you set yourself as a citizen of this country. Your standard as part of the larger society. And this standard of yours is quickly being eroded by Pakatan Rakyat. Here’s how:

10. When it comes to corruption, all Barisan Nasional MPs and leaders must be seen as corrupt free. But when the leaders of Pakatan Rakyat do it, all of you turned around and say – look Barisan Nasional is even worse. Yes, Pakatan Rakyat had successfully lowered your standards in terms of corruption. In your minds, Pakatan Rakyat can be corrupt because Barisan Nasional is corrupt too. In the end, it is okay for YOU to be corrupt because everyone else is corrupt too.

9. When it comes to Barisan Nasional leaders, the Pakatan Rakyat politicians are telling you that you need better leaders than Bung Mokhtar or Hassan Malek or G. Palanivel or most of the current crop of MPs from Barisan Nasional. But when it comes to their own leaders it does not matter who they are and what quality they possess; the lower the better. That’s why you are okay when Loh Gwo Burne became MP (your lowered standards voted him in), when Anwar Ibrahim was caught in a video with a China doll, all of you still voted for him. Let’s just cut the nonsense and admit that he is that fella in the video and on top of that, he is also guilty of sodomising someone against his will (a homosexual rapist is another term for that). Why can’t you people admit that? Standards too low already? Should we even delve and talk about Mahfuz Omar and even Hew Kuan Yau?

8. When it comes to the education qualifications of Barisan Nasional leaders, Pakatan Rakyat wants you to scrutinise their intelligence and education background. The standards they set for you is that you deserve Barisan Nasional leaders with at least a doctorate level education. But when it comes to their own leaders, anyone will do. Even the intelligence level of Mat Sabu will get him your votes. Recently, a  26 year old UiTM graduate with only one year working experience as a trainee in a law firm is being put as an MP candidate to serve a constituency of 60,000 people. The selling point to the people in Teluk Intan? A promise of hope for things to get better. Yes, we all know the value of a promise in Pakatan Rakyat’s election manifesto. But who cares, your standards are quite low so that is okay. God forbid if Barisan Nasional fielded a candidate with the same amount of education qualifications to what say, Mahfuz Omar acquired. All hell will break lose.

7. Pakatan Rakyat wants you to hound Barisan Nasional leaders for shoddy services and below average performance by the ruling government. You only deserve the best and above all, must not thank Barisan Nasional because it is their duty to provide these to you in the first place. But when it comes to the services by Pakatan Rakyat state government, they want you to lower your standards and forgive them for any poor performance. Because it is not their job to give you top notch services. Even promises can be broken. But don’t stop there, they want you to be angry at Barisan Nasional for any third-rate, poor quality services rendered by Pakatan Rakyat state governments. The JAIS raid on Bible Society as well as Selangor water fiasco are two such examples.

Lying and giving poor services are Pakatan Rakyat's standards which are acceptable by you.

Lying and giving poor services are Pakatan Rakyat’s standards which are acceptable by you.

6. Normally, hypocrisy is a trait which is shunned by most people. But since the arrival of Pakatan Rakyat, they have successfully  ingrained this attitude into you as an acceptable characteristic. You have been downgraded as a walking hypocrite. Take for instance, the call of cronyism and nepotism by Pakatan Rakyat to Barisan Nasional. You people echoed the same sentiment and propaganda against Barisan Nasional. But when it comes to Pakatan Rakyat, they can take all these nepotism and cronyism to another level yet you are okay with it. Not only that you embrace it lovingly and say it is okay for them to have father-son, husband-wife, father-daughter intra-party relationship with a whole gamut of feudalistic family oriented parties. It is all nice and dandy. Right? So sad.

 5. When it comes to Barisan Nasional, double standards is a big no on your part. You are bred by Pakatan Rakyat to believe that Barisan Nasional must never resort to double standards. Say one thing, but do the other. That is unforgivable. But for Pakatan Rakyat, you are blinded or worse, brainwashed to see that practising double standards is acceptable on your part. Want to have a multi racial country but support segregated vernacular schools; want to have an equitable and just society, but want to impose hudud only for muslims; want to have a free and fair elections, but their party elections are very autocratic and riddled with corruption and strife.

4. The freedom of speech within Pakatan Rakyat is near non-existent. You must not criticise the leaders in Pakatan Rakyat, especially if you are a member, and especially if you have a valid reason to criticise. All that will be swept under the carpet and the complainers will be issued gag orders. Worse, they will be kicked out. But God forbid if the freedom of speech against Barisan Nasional is slightly curtailed. When it comes to Barisan Nasional, there must be a no holds barred attitude against them. The Prime Minister must not stifle any unfair defamatory speech against him. But Lim Guan Eng, Anwar Ibrahim and their ilk can sue anyone who says something which they do not like. In other words, there are practising totalitarian leadership right under your nose. Yet, you bask in it pretending it to be a liberal democracy.

3. For years Barisan Nasional has been ridiculed by you when you say it is an old party, filled with political has beens and dinosaurs. You laugh at Barisan Nasional without being cognisant of Pakatan Rakyat’s own pack of grizzled old men. Leading the charge is of course DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang, who will be 77 come next general election. Your ‘prime minister in waiting’, Anwar Ibrahim will be 71 in 2018. Abdul Hadi Awang, your future DPM, will also be 71 in 2018. There are many more oldies in Pakatan Rakyat. So why are you people lowering your standards in accepting dinosaurs as your leaders? Because Pakatan Rakyat asked you to.

2. As your intelligence is being lowered even more, you still find enough time to believe what Pakatan Rakyat told you; that Barisan Nasional treats non-malays as second citizens and that only malay cronies could reap all the benefits this country has to offer. But at the same time you believe another propaganda that says non-malays pay more tax than the malays. And so, those who are ‘oppressed’ by Barisan Nasional suddenly get a lot more income that’s why they are taxed! This contradicting logic would be so preposterous to an intelligent mind, but alas, Pakatan Rakyat has stupefied you to the point of no return. You can’t even step back and take stock on any messages Pakatan Rakyat throws at you. You can’t even perform logical and critical thinking anymore. You just gobble everything up as the truth.

1. When it comes to Barisan Nasional, you are made to believe that the current state of perceived despair and worsening fate of the country has always been the case since Independence. You were made to believe that only Pakatan Rakyat is the saviour of this country. Judging from 9 points mentioned above, it will take only the stupid to believe that Pakatan Rakyat will make this country better. Fact of the matter is, the country under Barisan Nasional has made this country one of the best place to live on this earth and to say that things have always been terrible would be a great disservice to your standard of intelligence. Yes sure, things have not always been perfect. But remember the great 90s and the decades before that? Remember the great country prior to 2008? One of the things that made this country worse is the birth of Pakatan Rakyat. Where were you in the 90s? Perhaps living a happy life at that time with few complaints. Even Lim Kit Siang was a happy, tolerable fellow at that time.

  1. Good points and accepted as quite valid.

    However, why still the need for Cinabeng, Keristian, non-Melay bashing? Why no stiff actions taken on those out to disrupt harmony and peace.

    Why let issues of non-Malays with good results be made an issue year in and year out which can be absorb easily into any university?

    Why create fears and anger onto non-Malays to be used as political fodder?

    Guess that’s why, most non-Malays and even educated Malays who see the injustice in such insults start looking elsewhere to other parties.

    You see, in the end, most simple normal humans need and wants to see fair play and justice.

    Power play and who rules are just games politicians play.

    • Non malays with good results who can’t enter university became an issue every year because that’s precisely what Pakatan Rakyat want you to believe. Do you think, malays with good results can all enrol and get places into public universities? Besides UiTM, public universities intake among races is now 55% bumi and 45% non bumi. With 66% bumi population in Malaysia, they are now vying for just 50% of the allocated seats. The chinese with just 25% of population gets more than 30% of the allocation in public universities.

      In the year 2000 for instance, out of 1.38 million students in public universities, 450K (33%) were chinese and 828K (60%) were bumiputras.

      Maybe you have this misconceived idea that if there are 1 million non malay students taking SPM, all of them must be enrolled in public universities afterwards because all non malays are more clever than malays. Is this true? I hope not.

      Even with just 50% allocated quota in universities, the entrance in universities are based on merit. If you scored 10D in SPM, there is no way you can get into any universities, not even UiTM. We now have 20 public universities and 33 private universities. With 45% of students in public universities are non-malays, have a guess how many percentage of malays who can’t enter public universities but have to resort to enter private universities? Have a guess on how many malays are there in PRIVATE universities? Take an educated guess. The issue you write above is just a smokescreen presented to you by Pakatan Rakyat because, if there are 10 non malay students who can’t enter public universities because of good grades, there will be 20 malays students with good grades who can’t enter those universities. And since these malay students can’t afford to pay the tuition fees of private universities, unlike their non malay counterparts, they will have to take their third choice (when you apply for university placement, you have to give 5 choices in the UPU form for them to place you). Most non malays turn down public university placement which is not in their top two choices because 1) they can afford to study elsewhere 2) they can play victim and hold ransom towards the UPU/Government. Anyway, this argument now is moot – because of the existence of PTPTN which will give soft loans to students to subsidise their tuition fees in any universities. Besides, non malays shun public universities anyway; telling the world how poor the quality of those universities anyway. Why bother to enrol in them?

      But thing for sure, there are many, many more non malays who got scholarships from the Government especially from JPA since decades ago. But of course Pakatan Rakyat wants you to believe that non of the non malays ever received any help from the government.

      You see, people do want to see fair play and justice. And that cannot be done when the issues created are based on misperception and wrong information, because the educated malays will then see that these non malays are talking without merit and right information – just pure propaganda crap from the opposition. Therefore, the ‘injustice’ perceived to be taken place may just be imaginary. Now who actually created this misplaced fear and anger? Maybe should put this as Reason number 11. And yes, there are non malay bashing; just like there are malay and islam bashing by the ‘oppressed’ groups.

      Thank you

            What history are you talking about. I was searchig for the candi at merbok in kedah and there were no sign board to even indicate this early malay peninsular culture. The best the state gomen can do is dismantle the found buildings,and evacuate it to a place that the state can properly keep an eye on with a map on where it was found. The candi i saw their bricks were vandalised or stolen.
            This taliban gomen never mention about an earlier malay peninsular civilisation in kedah in education curriculum. This is a hindu based civilisation. Probably a stepping stone to the conquest or influence to the stepping stone to the rest of southeast asia. Including borobodur/prambanan,angkor wat and others. Sanskrit influenced thai,myanmar,cambodian and malay culture. And that is a fact. But you willnot learn about this history. Its all about the muslim malacca sultanate. I am looking at the fact that cheng ho could have influence the malay archipelago to turn muslim.after years of arabs and indians,a chinese muslim could be very convincing.

    • A,

      jebatmustdie has addressed substantially your comment above. Let me add my views.

      First, my comments in general –

      There have always been cause-and-effect, action-and-reaction, the whys to any issue. You need to say something on those, determine the causes and the parties who acted, that caused others to react. Only then can you try to find answers to the questions you posed.

      You need to ask why the issues surfaced in the first place. For example the Cinabenging, the Keristian lashing and the Malay bashing could not have come out of a vacuum. In fact, scientifically, a vacuum does not exist except in scientific experiments – air rushes in the moment a vacuum begins to develop.

      For all those, you need History in order to know, to understand fully and to determine the causes-and-effects and the whys. Thank God, and Tan Sri Muhyiddin, History has has been made compulsory in schools since 2013. Future generations starting with the 2103 pupils will, hopefully, be better equipped to lessen the benging, lashing and bashing. But the present and older generations – the ones who got away from History being forced unto them – are the major problem.

      Without a decent knowledge of the history of this country – and acceptance of the material facts – especially the circumstances of the fight for independence, the framing of the Constitution, the tabling to, the debating within, and the approval by Parliament of the Constitution itself, all sorts of misconceptions, prejudices, unjustified propaganda came out, and purely evil, Machiavellian politics often rule the citizenry. Undermining, subverting, straining and endangering peace and harmony among the races in this country.

      All of us must live on the basis of that Constitution. It’s the highest set of laws in the land. All other laws were derived from it and cannot contradict it. Respecting it and abiding by it will definitely lessen “the Cinabenging, the Keristian lashing and the Malay bashing”.

      Next, going into details on the above and on the specific points you raised.

      • The Constitution should be the mark of loyalty and patriotism to country. Those not respecting and willing to live by the Constitution deemed “unloyal and unpatriotic”. No such thing as loyal just by paying Income Tax – even foreign labourers pay Income Tax by way of Levy imposed on them.

        Issue of Ics should be upon swearing of loyalty to King and country and of protecting the Constitution – at 12 years old school pulpis should have some idea what it is all about.

        Appointments to Government Service should be on same basis – swearing made a MUST for them, especially Division One appointments.

And students should graduate at a younger age. 24 is too old for undergraduate studies. 20/21 is about right, like the US and the west. That means spm at 15, a level at 16/17,and graduate at 20/ 21.

    • A,

      You see, based on history and the Constitution, the the Malays have been feeling that they have agreed to the the non-Malays being given citizenship right at Merdeka, which their forefathers did not have and were Stateless in this country for 150 years before that. As the quid pro quo, they have their Special Position and Ketuanan Melayu (the roles, functions and responsibilities of the YDP Agong, the Malay Rulers, the Rulers Council, etc) enshrined in the Constitution under Article 153 etc, including in 19 of the 184 Articles that pertain to the Monarchy system of Parliamentary Democracy practiced in this country.

      That Special Position which the British said in their Parliament when debating the Malaya Independence Bill, “has been there since day one” (the latest example being the fact that they sought permission from the Malay Rulers to set up trading posts in Penang and Singapore in the 18th and 19th Centuries). That Special position which was extended to the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak on the formation of Malaysia in 1963.

      Additionally, the Malays as represented by Tengku A Rahman had after Medeka even dispensed with the language test etc for the issue of citizenship certificates, leading to the MCA President Tun Tan Siew Sin saying, “The Malays have been generous enough”, and the MIC President Tun Sambanthan saying words to the same effect in Parliament.

      But, when DAP picked up and hogged the chauvinist Lee Kuan Yew’s subversive and seditious slogan “Malaysian Malaysia”, wanting equality without simultaneously acknowledging the Special Position of the Malays and the Bumiputeras, Cinabenging started. The cause-and-effect situation could be seen there. And Malay bashing went on in sarcastic remarks, innuendos and oblique references, including during the election campaigning in 1969. It led to the race riots of 13 May. NEP came out of those, but the DAP and the Tsunami Chinese continued on the so-called Malaysian Malaysia thingy in disguised forms until now.

      I think the race riots might not have occurred if all citizens had known the history of this country sufficiently. And were grateful for the citizenship they got freely and the issue of certificates were made easy and expedited. But that situation did not exist because, for example, so many of them could not even speak Bahasa Melayu, the language of the country as spelled out in Article 152. And because of other issues pertaining to the Constitution respect for which was not forthcoming, for example on Islam being “the religion of the Federation”.

      Which leads me to further comments that I will make in due course.

      Like

      • The latest Cinabenging has been due to the Chinese tsunami. PAS re-activated their Hudud calls after that and in recent times.

    • Cinabeng-ism came about when the Malays saw ultra kiasu-ism rising in unlimited proportions – nak lagi, nak lagi, nak lagi to what they already got, and hell of a lot they already got – citizenship, being the richest community in the country for decades, so many millionaire and billionaires, so many professionals as doctors, architects, engineers, lawyers, you name it they are the most.

      The damn British colonial government provided them with all sorts of schools and in the English language as well (the passport to success at that time) in the towns where most of them live, whereas the Malays had only 4 years of education in schools far in between in the kampongs – the British intended them to “look after the food production of the country”, therefore let them continue as rice farmers and fishermen.

      But the extreme came when they wanted more to the extent it ate into the portions meant for the Malays and the Bumiputeras who have a Special Position in this country. Worse still when they appear to question that Special Position, criticizing the NEP that was – to say the least – inspired from that Special Position. Then they also call for the repeal of the Sedition Act that protects the sensitive clauses of he Constitution including the Special Position clause.

      Now many are shouting to UMNO that if Najib even talks again about doing away with NEP, to do away with Najib. Enough of the chaos with criminals all over the places after being released when the ISA, Emergency Ordinance and related laws were repealed. It’ll be much worse if the Sedition Act is, too. Criminals like lawyer Karpal Singh (sentenced but died), potential criminals like Tian Chua (sedition trial date already fixed), Teresa Kok (sedition charged already preferred against her), etc will get emboldened. And the so-called news portals that published neither news nor portals will misbehave with impunity (Najib had issued lawyers letters against Malaysia Kini in his personal and in UMNO’s names).

    • Mr A said, “Guess that’s why, most non-Malays and even educated Malays who see the injustice in such insults start looking elsewhere to other parties.” The important point has to be made – it’s not even looking to Pakatan Rakyat component parties.

      Abdullah Zaik of ISMA, with religious education at pre-university level, graduated from Egypt’s leading educational institution, Al Azhar University, Cairo, didn’t look to PAS, like such graduates used to before.

      He insisted that defending the Malays is not racist. “When we defend the fate of our race, to speak on behalf of them, that is not racist,” said the son of farmers in Trengganu. He has a degree in Islamic Law. ISMA, the NGO that he leads has 20,000-members, fully funded by contributions of members, with a few corporate sponsorships, according to the Star. .

      Unlike Malay-rights NGO PERKASA, ISMA’s members comprise a large number of professionals including academicians, doctors, engineers, scientists, a smattering of non-Malay Muslims and a strong student involvement who make up its largest support base. Malaysia is predominantly Malay-Muslim which is why ISMA upholds Malay interests, said Abdullah Zaik. That in turn, translates to national interest, he said.

      Note that although two important personalities other than Ridhuan Tee have stated those unhappy with the country or refusing to respect the Constitution should migrate, Abdullah Zaik/ ISMA does not believe in that. Yet the propaganda is that he/ ISMA is extremist, like PERKASA and DAP are labeled.

      “We support Ridhuan Tee’s views. To us, he is Malay,” said Abdullah Zaik. However, Abdullah Zaik opposed Ridhuan Tee’s suggestion that unhappy non-Muslims should leave the nation. “It is not our approach to ask them to leave but they must understand,” he said. Non-Muslims must adhere to the social contract, laws and constitution and not “naik kepala”.

      There you are. Is Abdullah Zaik/ ISMA the cause or the effect of “non-Malays and even educated Malays see(ing) the injustice in such insults (and) starting to look elsewhere”? Given the tendency of religiously-inclined persons and organizations to join PAS in the past, is he/ ISMA affected by the doubtful standards or the lowering standards of Pakatan Rakyat? Or merely stating a simple and valid fact that all “Non-Muslims must adhere to the social contract, the laws and the Constitution, and not “naik kepala”. I agree with him.

Better to die honourable than to live in disgrace, or in this case, torturously living with subpar race like the malays. It’s your call. But there is always a solution –> STOP BEING RACIST.

  4. What you are saying is true but lets’ not be negative about it. Most supporters of BN parties, especially the right thinking supporters of UMNO, are not going to allow the current unsavory and unscrupulous political maneuvers by rival PR parties to just happen like that without challenging them. Obviously there have been more good done by BN as compared to PR in the governing the country. And of course there are more corruption and cronyism among the PR members than among BN members. But isn’t it true also that some BN / UMNO members and leaders practice corruption like it’s already entrenched in the UMNO culture? So it’s crucial that BN/ UMNO clean its image first, simple as that. Bright aspiring young members should be encouraged to lead UMNO while weeding out the useless old members and If that is achieved I’d like to believe there is still a future for UMNO and the BN government to run this country.

  5. Why when Rakyat point out the weakness in BN Govt. the common answer is to compare it with the opposition as the standard?

    Who’s ruling the country and who is the Govt. now?

    What level of garbage politics is this?

    Worse, if NGO’s behavior and statements are linked or implied as supported by the Govt. Nobody elected the NGO’s as their wakil Rakyat. What makes them think they represent everyone or a certain race or religion?

    Even worse, is when Govt bodies, judiciary, universities, religious bodies also start playing politics instead of providing service according to their roles. Is that how a country should be governed?

    It has been and always will be the ruling party which forms the Govt of the day provides Service to the Rakyat and not the other way round. Respect and recognition comes from good governance and never governing by threats, fear, rumour mongering, sly or creating animosity.

    It has always been Govt, of the people, by the people, for the people and likewise Power will always come from the people, by the people and of the people.

  6. May I repeat what you said to highlight the points – “Obviously there have been more good done by BN as compared to PR in governing the country.” BN been doing it 57 years now. But PR only 5 years in Selangor, for example, had caused me unable to bathe for so many days in the last few months of water rationing. Crazy, water, the very necessity for existence, that millions of planets in the universes (note, more than one universe the astro-physicists now say) are not habitable coz no water). And if the Selangor PR gomen had agreed to the BN gomen proposal on water supply in 2009, millions of Selangorians would not have suffered. Damn.

    “And of course there are more corruption and cronyism among the PR members than among BN members.” More than cronyism, PR, especially DAP and PKR even has dynasty-ism in the Lims, the Karpals and the Anwars.The more sickening thing is that PR people very often cakap tak serupa bikin, meaning bohong, tipu, pedaya what have you. Heck, DAP been shouting about corruption, yet no less than Ronnie Liu, Selangor DAP Chief, complained about DAP money politics at no less than their party election convention a few years ago. And the DAP gangster looking Municipal Councillor whatever must have pushed MACC witness Teoh Beng Hock out of the window to protect Selangor DAP Exco members during the investigation into their State financial allocations and expenditures – the bloke was the last known to be with TBH before his death.

    Yes, money politics is still a huge problem in UMNO and must be acted upon endlessly. But the DAP have promoted themselves to doing other forms of corruption as well. A lot of talk about huge commissions, kickbancks, nominee and proxy shares from the sale of Penang State land at RM1.07 billion at Bayan Mutiara, another at Taman Manggiis, and the RM1 billion Turn-key sPICE Project and the undersea Tunnel project whose cost mysteriously increased from RM4 to 6 to 8 billion even before project commencement.

And the doing away of the nobility and the Monarchy in France.What change is he talking about? Is he implying any of those in Malaysia? Is that the kind of thinking that Lim Guan Eng had when he officiated the opening of a building named Sun Yet Sen in Penang – the man who had nothing to do with this country except taking refuge on the island from the revolutionary upheaval in China? Is revolution and Republicanism in the minds of these blokes? If so, they are to be dragged out in the manner of citizen arrests, collared, heaved and swung to the Police Station, accompanied by concerned citizens who make Police reports urging that they be charged for sedition and subversion.

      The A blokke should have argued out his case. Counter the counter-arguments of those who responded to his comment. But that’s the perennial problem with these no-standard Pakatan Rakyat. The biadap kind that DAP Vice-President Tengku Aziz said of LGE as he stormed out of the party. The DAP kind that has been living on hate fomented some 50 years ago on the formation of the DAP, enlivened through the decades, heightened on 13 May 1969 and the race riots, now rearing its ugly head again.

      One sees absolutely no relevance to Malaysia the beheading of Marie Antoinette, other than mischievous and nasty thoughts concerning our democracy and constitutional monarchy system of government. Let it be known that the Malays shall not tolerate such nonsense from the pendatang and urge the Police Special Branch to observe these blokes constantly in the Internet, as is known that they do.

      And on the point of cause and effect, here is another example that the words of the bloke calling himself A have deprived him of the title “Mister” A and the word pendatang, which is not seditious but may not be used on respectable Malaysians, is now applied to him.

            Agree that BN can’t go wrong with empowering our Race: Melayu, Iban, Kadazan-Murut and Dusun. They belong to the same Larger Family of Malays or Keluarga Besar Melayu that originated in this Gugusan Pualu Pulau Melayu or the Malay Archipelago some 6,000 years ago, not from Yunan or Taiwan as were suggested in the 1930s, theories that lasted until the 1950s.

            Thereafter so many researches were scientifically done by experts in languages (linguists), the study of mankind (anthropologists), the study of ancient remains (archaeologists), DNA specialists etc, by experts in the West etc, and including experts from our own country. Their findings are explained in the books, “The Malay Civilization” and “Tamadun Alam Melayu”, published by the Historical Society of Malaysia, available at the Wisma Sejarah, opposite IJN, Jalan Tun Razak, KL.

            Colonialism and religion divides the Rumpun Melayu that comprises 350 million in the region and forms a formidable racial grouping of Malays in Indonesia, Indonesians, Filipinos (who call their independence fighter Jose Rizal “The Great Malay” and their Ambassador to Malaysia is named Malay, if I remember correctly). DAP of course dislikes that kind of history, they even opposed History being made compulsory in schools,.It was fellows like them who opposed Philippine President Diosdado Macapagal’s idea of Maphilindo, an entity comprising Malaysia, Philippines and Indonesia, that was mooted out in the early 1960s.

            DAP not only has no standards, they are a divisive and destructive lot, anti-Malay, anti-Islam and caused the race riots of 1969..

            • Correction and addendum:

              “Malays in Indonesia” should have been written as “Malays in Malaysia”.

              Linguists played an important part in those researches, having done such since the voyages of Captain Cook in the 18th Century. He brought along language scientists who studied the languages of the people in the countries they visited.

              They and many others after them have established that there are more than 1,200 languages in the Keluarga Besar Bahasa Melayu. Similarities in words, grammar and syntax were recorded among the languages of the 350 million people, including in Madagascar, Indochina (the Khmer Malays still exist as a distinct entity in Laos and Cambodia to this day), in Taiwan and even in Hawai.

              That one native group in Taiwan still uses a language with affinity with the Malay language does not mean the Malays originated from Taiwan as theorized by some in the first half of the 19th century. In fact, as explained in the books mentioned above, what is true is the reverse – some Malays from the Malay Archipelago sailed and settled there.

              Comments on those books have appeared here quite some time ago. Reading them is exhilarating for me.

            (Human Genome Organization’s Dr Vikrant Kumar)

            Rumpun:
            The findings from Genome/ DNA were
            – East (China/ Korea/ Japan) and Southeast Asians share a common origin.
            – A common ancestor of the Negrito and non-Negrito populations of Asia entered into the continent …

            Keturunan Datuk Adam who came via India to Malaysia were Negritos, who went on to populate China and Australasia as aborogines. Imagine the Chinse horror worldwide to discover that the Middle Kingdom race did not down from heaven huhu, but were Negritos?

            NB:
            (1) Melayu’s are the migrants who much later returned from China, but who were originally from SEA pre-historically, so OK common Rumpun but we must now include the Orang Aslis.
            (2) Sdr M Arof Isyak is from MHS of which my wife was a former committee member. His book covers more recent events vs Genome which covers pre-history.

              There were two waves that migrated out of africa. The first wave, curly haired people, includes tamil, orang asli, papuans and aborigines.
              Malays belong to the second wave.originate from what is now called china. People that migrated to american continent, eskimos etc also came from the same part of china. Maybe there was a drought or calamity that forced them out. But by race we are not chinese.
              Culturally,malays are the same as the myanmars,the thais, the khmers and indonesians. Examples are never point with our legs, or use our second finger but the thumb, bow down when passing in front of a person sitting, build houses on stilts etc. Then these same people were influenced by sanskrit of india. Similarity with thai words with malay includes raja,perdana menteri etc. But you wouldn’t know it as they sound different with their tonal expressions.
              Malays and other south east asians then evolve ( this word in malay maybe banned by islamic religious department) differently than the chinese. But deep down, whether we are whites, africans, asians, we are basically the same. Its the environment that makes us different. Some are infortunate enough to be born as a muslim. After a few thousand years, their body wil be devoid of any pig immunity, like swine flu. Those that do not eat cow meat may be susceptible to mad cow disease.

                The above your own theory ha? What year you living in, 1930s? So many hypotheses have been thrown out, many hypotheses did not even reach the “theory” stage, even theories that were accepted for a period of time, have been discarded, superseded by later ones, you don’t know ah?

                You may even read about the “Little Emperor” in the “Little Red Dot” south of the Peninsula. Don’t believe those also lah, tempawan – people have been making fun of Lee Kuan Yew by coining those terms.

                The Malays originated in this Gugusan Pulau Pulau Melayu or the Malay Archipelago some 6,000 years ago, have been moving in and out of the numerous islands, including the Peninsula,known since about 2,000 years ago and later named as Semenanjong Tanah Melayu. The Langkasuka Malay Kingdom had existed as a civilized society, with rulers and systems of administration, justice etc since the 2nd Century AD.

                There are now some 350 million of the Keluarga Besar or Rumpun Melayu, divided by colonization and religion. Read the books “The Malay Civilization” and “Tamadun Alam Melayu”, published by the Historical Society of Malaysia, as spelled out by Halim above.

                Note that PM Najib has also acknowledged this Large Family of Malays when he said in China only the other day that the Malay language is the 5th largest language, spoken by over 300 million people in the world.

                The Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak and the Orang Aslis also belong to this Large Family. Ever heard the terms “Proto Malays”, “Deutero Malays”, “Malayo-Polynesians” and “Austronesians”? They all belong to the Rumpun Melayu. .

                That “out-of-China” and “out-of-Taiwan” hypothesis on the origins of the Malays lasted only for 2-3 decades and has been discarded since the 1950s.

                The origins of civilised Chinese like our Rumpun were proven scientifically prehistoric Negritos, not sent down from heaven to the Middle Kingdom. We can throw away our old history books and our SEA History Profs are now history, no pun intended.

    • I agree with most of what you say. To add a bit, if I may –

      Yes, Malaysia is a great country to emulate – where the descendants of pendatangs emerged as the richest and the most highly educated – especially to the Nanyang or Overseas Chinese. In Thailand, despite adopting Thai names, speaking the Thai language, wearing the Thai dresses, the Chinese Shinawatras are being ousted one after another. In the Philippines, despite the same kind of integration or even assimilation with the native Filipinos, the Chinese are spitted upon behind their backs. So are the Indonesian Chinese – Chinese schools and even the lion dance were not allowed during Sukarno’s and Suharto’s times. How many of them migrate to this country, I wonder.

      I also often wonder if many mainland Chinese harbour the thought of visiting this country, over-stay, bribe everybody concerned, get permanent stay, then citizenship, especially considering the “low PR governing standards”, that attract them to be free from the rigorous laws, rules and competition in China and to rise up relatively easily in business here, having connections with the mainland suppliers of goods and services. The DAP, with yet lower governing standards, will welcome them so that they can exploit the higher number of Chinese in this country to make all sorts of additional demands.

      I have serious doubts on the Statistics Department that does population census every 10 years. For the last census in 2010, the census forms did not even ask for IC numbers for verification of race and nationality as and when required. And I got flabbergasted when the Census showed the Chinese increased in percentage from 23% to 25% – despite the DAP publicizing their anxieties over lower birth rate in Penang and elsewhere and despite the constant migration, including those “British Overseas Citizens” who tore their passports to get assured of permanent stay but got stranded in UK.

      Yet the Malay population percentage was apparently shrinking. The Malays were, under that Census tabulation, placed under the same category as the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak. When they should have been 70%, it was shown as only 68%. And that Department has been full of Chinese – those with qualifications in Mathematics (the preferred ones), and rose to high positions since British colonial days.

      Yes, the BN government must increase their standards as far as this matter goes. Enforcement of over-staying visitors, even illegal entries through the human smuggling links, strict checking of fishing trawlers landing illegal settlers along Pantai Remis, Sitiawan, where the pendatangs landed since the days of Chin Peng’s father, or on the long coasts of Sarawak and Sabah. After all, the armed Filipino Muslims could even slip into Kampong Tanduo in Lahad Datu. And the BN government must make changes at the Statistics Department to ensure no connivance with population figures.

The land is for the rich, property prices go up and the job industry is not expanded enough. The land should be used for industry investment that create more jobs so that Johorean can have better job market, increase their income and buy reasonable house. If the land is just being developed for expensive property, then it goes away to the rich Chinese (if what you say is true i.e. spillover is mostly Chinese). If the argument states that property development creates more job opportunity then what you have would be Johorean who work in the expensive land but at the end of the day, the go back home to their cheap low-mid standard house which is far away from their job place. This in fact has already happened in Singapore. The Singaporean live in the HDB house whereas the foreigners live in expensive property.These Singaporean then see the opportunity to get better property in Johor because they cannot compete with the rich foreigners in their own homeland. So the foreigners ‘snatch’ their land and they go to Johor to settle there. The question is where then would the Johorean go to when the foreigners snatch the land in Johor?

          The government should seriously look into this. While they are proud of Iskandar Development, the question that we should ask, how would the Johorean benefit from this? Who benefit more?

Until they finally reached the border with Thailand and then ensconced in the Betong Salient in Thailand until now.

      You should have learnt history that is now made compulsory in schools. China is still communist but have become more civilized than under Mao Zedong. They have been practicing capitalism for decades now, that which was their sworn enemy before.

      The communist terrorists resorted to various nasty tactics in spreading their propaganda, including sedition, subversion and incitement of people’s feelings. The DAP also has been doing those – sedition by Karpal Singh, Teresa Kok and others, subversion by Lim Kit Siang who was ISA-ed in Kamunting, and incitement that led to the race riots of 1969.

    Re my earlier reply to your comment, I did a quick read of the article you referred. Yes, studies will continuously be made all the time – scientific, DNA, etc, and one set of study results may suggest the one before is out of date. But I think I’m going to stick to what were written in those books published by the Historical Society of Malaysia in 2007 and 2009.

    The current membership of the HSM (formed since British colonial times) includes Professors of many disciplines, their Executive Committee had, at times, included Professors of History. While the author is not an academic, and he merely explains the research findings of various professors and others carried out over quite a long period of time, the fact that the book is published by the Society shows its reliability and is sufficient for me to cling on to until more acceptable theories become accepted world wide.

    As for the the HUGO Pan-Asian SNP Consortium paper, I note the following:

    – The survey is from “a broad geographic sample of Asian human populations” and that the findings were only “indicative” that SEA was a major geographic source of East Asia populations. (I didn’t read much that bit about the in-and-out waves of migration to and fro SEA).

    – One Professor, P.K.Das, of Utkal University in India commented:

    1.It is generally seen that non-anthropologists generate blood samples arbitrarily without tracing the geneology before drawing samples from the population
    2.The ethno-history, linguistic affiliations, kinship terminogies, place name, materal cultures are never studied seriouly to show relatedness between genome diversity and cultural diversity
    3.When we say that ancient population migrated from India to China, it is essential to know whether it was from tribal stock or caste stock. This has to be attested by ethno-historical and archaeological facts.We have found out ALDH2*2 gene (Han-chineses gene) in certain section of Bonda Highlanders .What could be the explana- tion? Was the variant from China or emerged in the tribe independently? How do we establish in-out migration?
    4.Finally, region specific study should be undertaken as Indian population is vast and diverse.

    I do not know much about research methodology in general, much less on highly scientific studies like the above. But the comments by the Indian Professor adds to my doubts on the reliability of the genome study. Especially when Singapore academics are involved. Those in the Singapore National University are suspect. Every piece of writing by Assoc Prof Briget Walsh that I read is highly critical of Malaysia and the Malays. What crosses my mind about this genome study involving Singapore academics is that the findings may be convenient for use by Maha Chauvinist Lee Kuan Yew (otherwise known as the “Little Emperor” in the “Little Kingdom down south” to claim superiority of one race over the others in one way or the other, like “haplotypes” and such. I detest the DAP Red Beans and such ultra kiasu extremist blokes calling Malays “lazy, bodoh, etc” – they carried LKY’s subversive “Malaysian Malaysia” slogan after he was kicked out of Malaysia in 1965.

    There you go. My strong dislike of DAP and PAP may have clouded my views on scientific research findings. But I’ll stick to the research findings explained in the books published by the HSM.

    and together with my wife who is long a former HSM committee member, we have tried to lobby HSM including Dato Nik and Sdr M Arof to look at Genome.

    This is scientifically more powerful than archeological sciences. We have a big Genome centre but my guess huhu, it will be full of biologist and IT experts.

    I am an engineer and quite comfortable with biology. We are hoping local historians not to be overawed by the biology. Maybe you could challenge some of the younger/ technically savvy history students to assist.

    The Human Genome Project is the world’s largest collaborative biological project over many years involving DNA in all nations. It’s credibility shouldn’t be in doubt.

    Singapore happens to be the Asian centre, and they have inadvertently proven something about East Asians that certainly isn’t to their expectations !

    • YBhg Sdr hjzin,

      Txs for your response.

      I think HSM is sticking to what are contained in “The Malay Civilization” and the “Tamadun Alam Melayu” books for a long, long time yet. Especially now that DS Najib has acknowledged that the Malay language is the 5th largest and spoken by over 300 million people in the world, indicating acceptance of the Rumpun Melayu – he even publicized his Bugis origin not long after became PM.

      It will be extremely difficult to persuade them at HSM otherwise. Not being a technical man – and I know most of the HSM people are non-technical – it’s quite difficult to understand, more so to accept the genome research methodology and how to apply their findings to populations that are quite diverse and having a history that spans thousands of years. But it’s easy to accept that the ancient Malays had boat building and navigation skills against archaeological proofs of perahus fitted with floats, and the records by the Chinese Buddhist traveller IXing marvelling at multi-tiered Sri Vijayan Malay galleons he travelled on between Palembang and Kedah in the 6th Century AD.

      Credibility of any hypothesis, or even a theory (defined as a hypothesis that has gained some acceptance but not yet treated as a fact) is always subject to doubt. Perhaps you’d like to explain, in simple, not too technical and in 1,2,3,4 point forms, how the research was carried out and how they avoided such things as raised by the Indian University Professor PK Das as said in my earlier comment.

      Enough with the “ungrateful ingrate pendatangs” in this country – anything that emboldens them into further big headedness is a no no to many of us Constitution respecting and abiding Malaysians. Anything that shows we came from China in whatever “wave of migration” will embolden them. That will demean us. Sorry, no way. But I’m willing to listen to your views.
