MCA Youth chief Chong Sin Woon is catching up on the MCA Chief Liow Tiong Lai in being quite adept in “fire cannons after the cavalry have passed by”, and this is what both are competing to do after the four-day gratuitous, baseless, malicious and savage UMNO attacks on tycoon Robert Kuok, although he is a success story for Malaysia and an inspiration for entrepreneurs.
It would be more useful for Liow to revisit his “Citizens” National Day Video and tell Malaysians whether its all just pure humbug and hypocrisy.
In the “Citizens” video, Liow the Minister admitted to Liow the citizen: “The last ten years have been hard for everyone. I know we haven’t done enough”.
Was Liow the Minister speaking from the heart? If so, could he list out the things the MCA Ministers and leaders had not “done enough” and would now remedy?
The video tried to present the dilemma and malaise Malaysians had been feeling for the past decade or so, the great disappointment over the state of the nation – rampant corruption, political instability and a crippling economy.
Had Liow and the two MCA Ministers ever raised the 1MDB scandal in Cabinet since the “Citizens” video?
Would Liow support me that Parliament next month must address the nation’s infamy and ignominy as a “global kleptocracy” as Members of Parliament, regardless of political party, cannot continue to pretend that the 1MDB scandal does not exist – especially after the recent episodes concerning RM400 million of 1MDB-related funds in Switzerland, the billion-ringgit Equanimity luxury yacht seized by the Indonesian authorities yesterday, the RM120 millionBombardier jet seized by the Singapore authorities last month, not the mention the RM120 million pink diamond necklace.
In the “Citizens” video, Liow the politician came face-to-face with Citizen Liow, who angrily asked him, “What do you want?” to which Liow replied, “I know, you think I’m irrelevant, nothing I do is good enough. Of course I’m hurt by that, but now is not the time to discuss that. “
Liow the Minister said: “I’m only here to ask you to not give up on this country.
“Running the country isn’t easy. But the starting point of any solution is never give up hope.”
Liow the Minister said:
“The dream of Malaysia is beautiful and worthy of our perseverance.
“I believe every citizen and leader wish for a better Malaysia. Provided you follow your conscience, I don’t mind which party you support. I earnestly urge you to, once again, believe in Malaysia.”
Liow must state clearly and unequivocally whether he is sincere in what he said in the video, that provided Malaysians, including MCA members, follow their conscience in their Malaysian dream, he does not mind which political party they support and vote in the 14th General Election.
Today provides an important lesson for all Malaysians, where printed mainstream media owned by UMNO/BN blacked out the seizure of the Equanimity luxury yacht in Bali – proof that these printed UMNO/BN media are not newspapers, but fake papers.
Malaysians, including MCA members, not to lose hope, and in the 14GE to unite with all Malaysians, whether MCA, UMNO, Gerakan, MIC or even PAS members, for the achievement of the Malaysian Dream by voting for a change of Federal Government in Putrajaya for Malaysia to take the first step to become a normal democracy – an integral part of the Malaysian Dream.
Dare Liow send out this message at the 69th MCA Anniversary celebration this Sunday?
