Everyone but Umnoputras 'marginalised' in Malaysia

your say'Isn't it time for the ordinary members of MCA, Gerakan, MIC and those in Sabah and Sarawak to leave their respective parties?'

Wikileaks: MCA can't admit Chinese being marginalised

Abasir: Like their MIC and Gerakan counterparts, MCA leaders will not walk away from Umno for one reason only: preservation of self-interest, i.e. to protect a steady source of income, the formal and informal perks that come with the positions and the possibility of making something on the side, maybe a new 'Datuk' or 'Tan Sri' title and all the business and social payoff that comes with being in BN.

Umno knows that they are dealing with the 'pagar' that will 'makan the padi'. And so the game goes with the support of the foolish, gullible electorate easily impressed by titles and positions.

Kgen: So MCA has admitted its takings have dropped from leftovers to crumbs. Soon it will be 'droppings' exiting from Umno's rear end.

Baiyuensheng: What this all means is that no Chinese representation in the government is not a big deal. The Chinese are already being marginalised and being 'repressed' by the government - the same with the Orang Asli and those in Sabah and Sarawak albeit facing a different 'struggles' against the BN Malays.

It is time that we vote against the BN and only elect those Malays who practice equality, fairness and justice for all.

Cala: Nothing has changed for the better since 2008. Come the next GE, MCA will lose big, and one should not be surprised if its candidates are completely wiped out. Thereafter, MCA would be but a minuscule party not worthy of any mention, to be remembered only when one visits Museum Negara.

By MCA's golden silence on various issues, it is seen as condoning all of Umno's discriminatory policies. MCA is hence a partaker of unjust policies.

But former MCA chief Ong Tee Keat, despair not. Suppose we say you are part of the team tasked with the mission to bring Malaysia to the next level of development, say achieving those goals of Vision 2020, if one were to offer you help in your endeavour, would you object? The answer is certainly not.

But why not? Look at any economic development book (Todaro and Smith, 2006; Meier and Rauch, 2005) and see how Taiwan and Korea did before they succeeded. Success comes only at the back of meticulous planning, steadfast commitment, and self sacrifices of their leaders and bureaucrats.

Turning to Malaysia, are your (MCA) services required by the regime? No. But why not? Because Malaysia is ruled by teams of looters/plunderers, and so the less of you, the more shall be their share. In the literature, it is aptly called "kleptocracy" (Weil, 2009, p. 355). Now it explains why MCA is marginalised.

And when you have a system as rotten as the Umno-led BN regime, you find none of its component parties dare to publicly display defiance to the holder of the power lever.

Each finds an excuse to tolerate the system no matter how illogical, low, and worthless one may feel in the current position. To walk away may mean losing what one gets under the most dehumanising condition.

Look at MCA's math: it is the case of now having 20 marks in the pocket. The score is zero if one were to walk away.

SusahKes: The bottom line is, Ong, why then are you still dancing inside Umno's dance club? Don't tell me you're waiting for the crumbs?

Anonymous: MCA, Gerakan and MIC are all eunuchs and running dogs for Umno. Their leaders are all self-serving and yearn for monetary rewards and all the silly accessories in front of their names from their 'taiko' Umno. If these idiots still have pride and dignity, they should leave BN now.

Tkc: Ong was looking through the prism of the political patronage when he bemoaned that "MCA was getting the crumbs from Umno's table".

The sad fact is that most Malaysians, regardless of ethnic origin, are by and large marginalised if they are not members of Umno, MCA, MIC and the BN component parties over the last 53 years.

But for those of us who do not get projects from the government on a silver platter, do we moan about our plight?

No, we just got on with it and made the most of the opportunities that came our way by working hard and smart. In the process, we pass on better genes to our children.

Anonimous Z: Isn't it now the right time for the ordinary members of MCA, Gerakan, MIC and those in Sabah and Sarawak to leave their respective parties? What are you all still waiting for?

Begging for the leftovers at the expense of the future of your next generation? Wake up now, my fellow 1Malaysian brother and sister.

Biro Tata Negara: MCA always complains a lot in Penang about the DAP government marginalising the Chinese.

They should instead start looking at their home base and ask Putrajaya how many contracts have been given to the Chinese.

They should, for example, ask PLUS Expressways Berhad how many stalls on the highways are given to the Chinese. They should also ask Kuala Lumpur City Council (DBKL) how many projects have been given to Chinese.

Yeap Cheng Liang: For Malaysia to progress, Malaysians have to get rid of this debate of Chinese or Indian being marginalised, because it creates a mentality of non-Malays vs Malays.

In reality, everyone is marginalised except those who are close to the Umnoputras. - Malaysiakini
