Matters of opinion that enables me to understand or make some sense of my country- Malaysia

Not so much words but the symbolic representation Diyana carried merely by being fielded as a candidate

 

DAP IS FAMILY

Unlike some, I have far more conviction than to simply quit because I failed to get elected, or appointed, or because of dissatisfaction over a wedding kenduri.

I refer to the statement reportedly made by Tunku Aziz that I will leave the DAP when I realise “it is not a multi-racial party”.
My experience with the party was never similar to Tunku Aziz’s. I joined DAP as a regular member after getting to know some of the party’s members and leaders.  I understand and admire the struggle of its leaders, and its principle of multi-culturalism.
I appreciate its consistency in standing up for all Malaysians, regardless of race and religion.
I believe in its principle of doing what is right, despite the risks and repercussions.
I joined without the intention of being appointed into any position. I simply wanted to be with like-minded people, sharing a vision and mission, and partake in the struggle for a better Malaysia.
In DAP, I found friends and comrades. DAP is not merely a political party to me. It is family. My saudara-saudari, brothers and sisters in DAP have made me realise that it is possible to be a true Malaysian without obliging hypocrisy, unlike the empty “1Malaysia” slogan that supposedly encourages the spirit of being Malaysian, but is nothing more than a front for the continuation of racial politics.
Don’t get me wrong, I am proud to be Malay. I am proud of my roots and heritage.
However, I don’t believe in abusing it at the expense of other Malaysians. I have never felt truly Malaysian until after I joined DAP.
Perhaps if Tunku Aziz spent more time with us in the grassroots, he would have agreed too. We might have our differences, but that doesn’t mean one should leave the family every time disagreements emerge.
Unlike some, I have far more conviction than to simply quit because I failed to get elected, or appointed, or because of dissatisfaction over a wedding kenduri. In 2012, I was asked to organise a programme called Pesta Lagu Jalanan with Yeo Bee Yin and Kasthuri Patto.
We worked well together and remain great friends until today, because we share the same love for our nation, vision, mission, principles, and understanding. I believe that if all Malaysians focused on our similarities rather than our differences, then we could all see the world the same way Standard 1 kids do – skin colour blind.
And that is how I felt when I joined DAP.

Was reading Malaysia Today, comment section following the above letter from Diyana that was published in the site.

There were dozens of comments , some friendly to Diyana and  a lot were seemingly from the cybertroopers raging  full steam.

The name calling , putdowns,although i suspect that there was much worst that got edited out by the admin.

.selected comments sums up the gist  of most of the expressed sentiments.

All mainly similar in tone.That Diyana is a not very intelligent Malay  persona and merely a manipulated puppet.

Although it must be noted that the over riding message is that Malays and DAP must not be allowed to Mix.

    This girl is so shallow that she doesn”t realize that she is just a puppet being made use of by DAP. She doesn’t have any thoughts or opinion of her own and even if she does, Uncle Lim or Tony Pua will grab the mike away from her at press conferences giving scant respect for her as a potential MP. Most of her statements (including this one) were probably scripted by DAP for her to regurgitate without tunderstanding the impact or implications of what she is saying. For example, in saying that UITM produces poor quality graduates that cannot compete, does she realuze that she is belittleing her own credentials? If she prepared the statements herself, she must be really scatterbrained!

    This dimwit is getting sillier every time she opens her mouth to speak or write whatever her DAP uncles and siblings and cousins are urging her to say or pen. Goodness gracious , memalukan Melayu lah wei…especially the kaum hawa…yeah obviously she has no mind of her own and for the like-minded females in SIS to describe her as intelligent…well I suggest this greenhorn group together with the old boots and go parade themselves in the ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’. Then to her utter dismay she may find that even the standard one kids will definitely not be skin colour blind as she claims.They will even see her true colours, hahahaha.

She’s a lost soul who found a friend in another ‘ Malay ‘ in DAP. The ” son ” of Khir Johari,Kairil Khir Johari ? The extent they go to make DAP a multi racial party n how Khairil Khir rose the ladder for that camouflage effect ! Surely we have not forgotten GeogeOrwell’s Animal Farm to see the similarities ! And Dyana dimwit is one half Malay who has been hoodwinked into believing their scratch and win modus operandi.Indeed then she is among the stupid Malays to have even doubted the credentials of graduates of the very Uni that accepted her ( not based solely on merit but her bumi status )

Bryan Wong . Universality of  Minds

What a party here, reading the comments, most of it  is because Diyana is a Malay in DAP..poor lass is not allowed to display intelligence, must be uncle LIM dictating her penmanship. Dimwit , scatterbrain , lost soul etc.
Merely because she is a malay joining DAP, by default she must be pretty dumb..which is basically the gist from the comments., so DAP plus Malay equals absence of intellect..
Hmm , well guess Zairil will need to figure it out and wonder if Senator Arifin and Dato Arif Sabri aka Sakmongkol AK47 realises this equation. Unless I am reading it wrong the underlying message for malays , best to play safe and stick with UMNO.

Zairil is not a Malay as he got 100% Chinese DNA. He is the step-son of the late Khir Johari.Hussin Zin ·

Bryan Wong,   how many Malays holding top positions in ‘multiracial’ DAP?
One, two ? (Please exclude the 100% Cinese DNA Zairil Khir Johari).
How many Chinese in the CEC?
What does the DAP think by putting a ‘pretty face’ dimwit the people can buy that DAP is multiracial?

My Response…

 

Bryan Wong

And the former hog rearer,

That   “SWINE”  (pig)  …  Breeder…. (no disrespect meant, coz it is true, , – just pointing out irony)

Till he became a muslim,of course , Mr Riduan Tee is as Malay as Obama is an Eskimo,.

Everyone knows about Zairil and most wish him well

and don’t really care about a non issue., like his skin tone.

My response is same… ” Zairil is not pure malay..?? YA ? And ?? Go on…? And the point is..??

Doesn’t register into my analytical common sense at all.

Still has to be said,in fairness to Zairil..

Zairil has for a large part been raised a Muslim/Malay,and it is what it is. Surely that counts for something.

It is the psyche not skin color that matters.

Adopt perhaps, an African orphan infant, nurture and raise him as a Malay/Muslim in a kampung, so when he grows up, his essence/substance as an individual is , a Malaysian Malay or Malaysian African, or African Malay ??? poor kid, if someone were to really hold his skin tone against him.

And Mr. Husin Zin,as for DAP attempting to be a more multi ethnic party, gotta start somewhere, As it is said about the thousand mile journey beginning with one step.

Doubt a smooth journey for Malays, as soon as any from the community join DAP,  idealistic or naive , thinking to  balance the  numbers as a multi ethnic party  ,they get literally,  viciously pelted ,stoned mauled , maligned by their own community, to intimidate or try to scare them and thwart them  from entertaining the notion of becoming a DAPster.

. How many Malays in DAP?  Diyana is already one too many..by hook or by crook, Malays must be prevented from joining that racist chinaman DAP institution, and that  is the frantic message broadcasted.

As long as DAP remains ethnocentric and retains its image as a racist Chinese entity , an image they are trying to shed. UMNO and like minded mindsets won’t feel threatened but if DAP’s  message via Diyana gets traction, of becoming  a multi ethnic Malaysian political entity,

UMNO risk becoming redundant or outmoded..

Afterall, it is a logical vision of future Malaysian political environment/landscape.

Racial politics is on a one way street to oblivion . Multi ethnic parties and politics will eventually be setting the tone.

.DAP wants to go there, already few steps taken that direction., but UMNO is stuck and need to figure out a delicate way to extricate itself from the self created racial quaqmire.,and not let DAP get a headstart.

The emperor LKS or even raja muda LGE aren’t immortals .neither are the so called “mandarins” or “eunuch”  of the DAP kingdom, as they are sometimes described,

Dynasties come and go and some transforms into authoritarian dictator states or  communist or  republics and even thriving democracies  depending on who is in the driver’s seat.

At the same token , this applies to UMNO as well..

No one can predict the vision of Malaysia, 20 , 30 years from now, but  if there are still mindsets still going on about racial supremacy and subordination.

They’ll  probably be screaming from on top of tree-houses they built for themselves and live at in a whole community of their like minded , in Tmn Negara.,after having found the ideal niche location for them to live.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

They are shooting the messenger, Barking up the wrong tree!

Shallow, Hypocrite ,Puppet,,Scatterbrain Dimwit, didn’t see “twat” though,well ..these are the polite terms describing Diyana.

The BM blogosphere has worst. unmentionables. Actually these are quite common universal terms globally referring to politicians ,also relatively tame by certain standards.

Many will know that there are much worst unmentionable terms when it comes to creatively describing politicians esp in the UK or US..

 

Anyway, there is a quirky sense of irony in all the name calling of Diyana. .

” Barking up the wrong tree,. Don’t shoot the messenger.”

Somehow there is relevance of these terms to Diyana’s situation.

The Emperor and Prince probably smirking in their chambers of DAP which is ” The Forbidden Kingdom” for Malays, that is , if all the putdowns of Diyana were to be taken seriously, it is the over riding message.being frantically transmitted.

And on the subject of messages,,DAP may have scored ,quite high at that,, and successfully broadcasted their “multi ethnic political party ” for all Malaysians message ,throughout the nation..

In a so called hopefully optimistic and positive message. So it remains to be seen whether it got traction in the mindsets from among the “disillusioned” segment . of their target community. the ABU segment, the numbers from them that is not to be underestimated ,come GE14.

So puppet ka, dimwit ka , scatter brain ka ,hypocrite ka,

Through Diyana, the “messenger,” although victory would have been much sweeter and message more powerful , nonetheless, cannot deny her that she succeeded to a degree.. Now all the shooting and sniping is focused on her!

Which pervesely,, may be angled to her advantage. Since , no such thing as bad publicity , imagine the sympathy dimension she will get from her suppporters and the

” neutral”, on the fence looking at both sides. some may perceive it as , a poor hapless intelligent malay girl being bullied by her own kind ,coz she dared to challenge the status quo..

Does it matter if it is exaggerated or true ? Since , that will be irrelevant and a moot point.!

Hearts and minds via  perception can be won. Everyone loves the underdog , battling the odds against all powerful forces, and triumphs.!

Thats a movie in the making.

Therefore the more they shoot the “messenger”.. the more invincible she becomes. Just ironic.!
