The "1Melayu, 1Bumi" call by Utusan is divisive. Period. Even the BN ministers, and Perkasa's own patron are distancing themselves away from this.
And now, because criticism has been leveled on Perkasa's sacred text, Utusan, they want to lord around folks in BN, case in point being MCA.
While most rational people see the "1Melayu, 1Bumi" call by Utusan to be, best case, personal opinion, and worst case, outright dangerous, the ultra-right wingnut organization, on the other hand, sees this as a golden opportunity to further their own agenda.
And in Walski's eyes, that agenda is 1Apartheid. 'Melayu uber alles', but with a perpetual crutch in order that their subsidy mentality can be propped up and nurtured for eternity.
Special. Truly Special....
Perkasa warns MCA to toe the line in 1Melayu row
The Perak chapter of Malay-rights group Perkasa today slammed MCA leaders for urging a boycott of Utusan Malaysia, claiming the party’s call was a ploy to regain dwindling Chinese support.
The head of the chapter, Ahmad Zaini, accused the Chinese party of sacrificing the co-operation among Barisan Nasional parties as it sought to remain relevant to a community that has now abandoned them in favour of the opposition.
“There's no need to pay attention to their call as they themselves are no longer acceptable in the eyes of the Chinese community,” Ahmad was quoted as saying by state news agency Bernama.
On Friday, MCA deputy publicity chief Loh Seng Kok warned that the “1Melayu, 1 Bumi” movement mooted by the Malay-language daily would create apartheid in Malay-majority Malaysia.
Utusan had called on its owners Umno to spearhead a ‘1Melayu, 1Bumi’ movement involving all Malay parties, claiming that the DAP was intent on toppling the country’s Malay leadership.
Loh also reminded Utusan that BN comprises 13 political parties representing various communities.
Today, the Perak Perkasa chief asked BN to shut out such calls from Loh and his party, and to instead give voice to leaders who remained loyal to the coalition.

He also urged BN lynchpin, Umno, to bring the Chinese-based parties in the coalition back in line after their recent criticisms of what he described as “Malay rights”.
