How pathetic, now MCA must get its candidature to be cleared not only by UMNO but even by Perkasa!

Again the MCA newspaper The Star has blacked out my second reply to the daily MCA political offensive against me in the run-up to the Kajang by-election which is still 32 days away.

On Monday, the “7-11” political party, MCA, launched its political offensive against me, using a lowly MCA flunkey in a report entitled “MCA dares Kit Siang to explain why he is afraid of directly offending UMNO”.

I gave a 15-paragraph reply but not a word came out in the Star.

Yesterday, another MCA lackey was used to launch a second attack on me, entitled “Stop picking on MCA, Lim told”.

I issued a 24-paragraph reply. Of course it did not see the light of day in the MCA Star.

Today, another MCA factotum was used to attack me in the report entitled “’PKR, DAP hiding dirty linen’”, accusing me of being “mute” and subservient to Anwar Ibrahim.

Basically, these are all the handiwork of the new Liow-Wee MCA leadership to protest their “innocence” and the injustice of my trying to “taint” the MCA.

I think the two responses from members of the public in my facebook yesterday on my reply to the MCA say it all:

Evon Wooi What is there to taint? Also super tainted and I don't think there is any space left to be taint”

Hock Teck Lee Can someone teach me how to taint a black kettle”

I don’t think the top MCA leaders Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai and Datuk Seri Dr. Wee Ka Siong could even give any satisfactory reply to Evon Wooi and Hock Teck Lee – how to “taint a black kettle”!

I really feel sorry for the new Liow-Wee MCA leadership, for they should know better than anyone else how lowly the MCA has fallen from the heady days in the early Merdeka years when MCA leaders like Tun Tan Cheng Lock sat as equals with the UMNO leaders like Tunku Abdul Rahman and Tun Razak at any conference table. There is actually no need to compare with Tun Tan Cheng Lock, as the Liow-Wee MCA leadership are even light years away when compared to the Lee San Choon, Ling Liong Sik or horror of horrors the Chua Soi Lek eras!

How pathetic, now MCA must get its candidature to be cleared not only by UMNO but even by Perkasa!

This is quite evident from the statement issued by the Perkasa President Ibrahim today in his “personal capacity”, even pledging support for MCA’s likely candidate in the Kajang by-election.

This is my third reply to the third MCA political offensive against me in the Star in the run-up to the Kajang by-election.

Will it be blacked out like my first two replies?

But I am prepared to devote a few paragraphs a day for the next 32 days to regale the glory and ignominy, the heights and depths, the comedy and tragedy of 65 years of MCA history.

This of course depends on whether MCA keeps up on its daily offensive against me in the Star tomorrow.
