Proof positive that DAP is anti-unity
Unity is universal, the path to unity may be many but the destination is one and the same.
The 1-Malaysia approach adopted by the Government is a holistic look at unity in a diverse nation where communities fiercely defend their culture and identity.
Malaysia is unique on the world stage in that we have staunchly resisted becoming a melting pot, we live in the same country but practice distinct and sometimes divergent cultures and religion and this is not something that is easily understood by anyone living outside of the country.
DAP can be open about their Chinese chauvinism or religious inclinations but to reject a call of unity is to reject what is good for the country.
That said I am not surprised with their stance, in the many by elections and the Sarawak state election where the party was involved, their style of campaigning has been consistently abrasive, confrontational, accusatory and generally divisive.
Their call to Christian voters in Sarawak to reject Barisan Nasional on the basis that it is anti-Christ because the issue of kalimah Allah has yet to be resolved thoroughly demonstrates clearly their immaturity and is one of the clearest argument against allowing the party to have any strong voice in a multi-cultural and multi-religious community that has been embracing unity for more than half a century despite going through hundreds of years of colonial conditioning of divide and rule.
Tragic events in the past has rammed home the fact that the DAP is arrogant and insensitive to the sentiments of others when they get even the slightest whiff of power and this is evident in their leadership's habit of running down anyone and everyone who dares to criticise them.
Their behavior is strongly reminiscent of the Malayan Communist Party that lashed out against anyone who they see as opponents or even those who declined to sympathise with their cause.
If you don't believe me, go and check Roket, Suara Keadilan and Harakah and see if there are any articles criticising their leaders, then go and look at their top bloggers and see if you can find criticism of their parties.
DAP is leading a coalition of political convenience that cannot even bear to be criticised before the gain power, can you imagine the atrocities they would committ to silence the opposition if they ever form the Government?
The DAP is also famous for their 'Do as I say, not as I do' attitude.
Lim Kit Siang and his son Guan Eng can speak on the same stage about the dangers of nepotism without the slightest hint of irony.
Ronnie Liu and Ean Yong can talk about the danger of abuse of power and corruption and how it resulted in the death of Teoh Beng Hock without batting an eyelid about the numerous evidence of their own abuse of power and corruption as exposed in the Royal Commission of Inquiry into the death of TBH.
Lim Guan Eng can accuse the BN Government of victimising the people without flinching at the sight of residents of Kampung Buah Pala being thrown out on their ears as a result of his seal of approval on the project that caused their despair and he will talk his head off about the importance of open tender and transparency in government acquisitions and in the next breath say why a negotiated contract is the best way forward for the Penang free Wifi project...which, by the way still tastes like pie in the sky.
DAP will shout at the top of their lungs about Malaysian Malaysia even as Malays are being victimised and virtually chased out of Penang Island.
