By now you would have read the last few exchange of comments between me and JW Tan. This is a typical manner how people call others racist but put all sort of excuses to justify their own racist stand. In other words they practice selective racism. For the past six years, I wish to put on record that none of the DAP supporters have been able to justify their racist stand. All practice selective racism. If it doesn’t involve their race its downright racist. If it involves theirs, there’s a justifiable reason to practice racism. These are all dishonest crap.
These people will always argue its racist if one does not put Malaysian first. Thus mere utterance of calling yourself a “Malay Malaysian” is racist. A call to ask Malay to unite is racist. Any call for the support of Malay rights is racist. So long you don’t put Malaysian first, its racist. There’s no exception or excuse. Nil. No historical, legal, ethnic, self interest or other arguments can justify not putting Malaysian first. Its racism according to this group of people.
This is the similar mindset of JW Tan. He like all DAP supporters I’ve encountered took a moral high ground condemning others as racist. The way how they argued has always been the same. When I specifically ask: Do you agree that not putting Malaysian first is racist? He answered in no clear unambiguous term: Yes.
I then ask him:
“Do you agree that advocates and supporters of segregation of our youngs by race do not put Malaysian interest first?”
He answered in clear uncategorical term “yes”. (Prior to this we had many debates on vernacular schools. He knew that my children are deprived of non Malay friends as a result of vernacular school. It is a fact that we have a fragmented education system segregating our children by race. The British introduced the vernacular schools to separate all the races to augment their divide and rule policy ).
Then I ask:
“If not putting Malaysian first is racist, [would that not make] any advocate or supporter of segregation of our youngs by race also a RACIST since its not putting Malaysian first. ”
I ask countless of times. He pretended initially he has answered it. He then said he answered it earlier giving specific time of comments. But that was for the second question above. My last question came after that.
He knew that he was caught. He had avoided to answer but now forced to answer. He had no choice then but to do like many racist DAP apologist did in the past: provide excuses and exceptions to racism.
This is what he says:
“You have to look at people’s reasons for doing so. Some of their reasons are good ones – e.g. vernacular schools teach better, they teach useful languages, they often provide the best or only available education in some poor communities, etc. Why is aspiring to give one’s children the very best set of skills one can not putting Malaysia first? In fact it’s one of the most patriotic things one can do.”
He is saying we can put self interest first before Malaysian first and dare call this patriotic. This is the sickening nauseating part of this whole debate. Justifying racism based on self interest. Highly hypocritical. In the first place all this people say there’s no excuse of not putting Malaysian first. Its racism. Dah lupa pangkal hujah ke?
This is the typical argument I go through with this people. In fact all their justifications are bias selective chauvinistic and downright racist.
Others including JW Tan himself have given many other excuses. The main one is the vernacular school is a mother tounge education right. But they know its selective racism and hypocritical. Because what they mean and refer to is only their mother tounge. They care not about other ethnic’s mother tounge. They have and will not fight for more than 40/50 types of sekolah Jenis kebangsaan to cater to other more than 40 ethnic groups we have in Malaysia. They know if we have so many types of schools to cater for other ethnic’s mother tounge it would further fragment our education and society. Thus not putting Malaysian first. So what they mean of mother tounge education is their own mother tounge. Again is this not selective, chauvinistic and downright racist?
Whatever argument they put its selective and falls flat into their definition of racism. These are the arguments and propaganda perpetuated by DAP. Top most of this racist propagandist is Lim Kit Siang. This is dishonest, hypocritical, selective and downright racist.
