Get rid of garbage politicians

FMT LETTER: From Sebastian Loon

The “WikiLeak: Ong Tee Keat admits Chinese marginalised” blogged by Uppercaise and then posted by Malaysia Today on Aug 19 shows how important it is for Malaysians to rid the country of garbage politicians.

It also shows there are garbage politicians in the Barisan Nasional (BN) as well as in the Pakatan Rakyat (PR). However, clearly there is more garbage in the BN, especially in the MCA.

MCA leaders are so rotten to the core that they will not hesitate to sell their mothers to realise their personal agenda which is always about material benefits that come with political power.

In the Wikileak report quoted in a US diplomatic cable in 2006 and attributed to US Embassy’s political officer Mark Clark, the then MCA vice-president was one of the few ministerial level Chinese politicians who refused to deny publicly or privately the fact that Chinese Malaysians are marginalised.

Clark reported that Ong acknowledged “of course we are marginalised, big business to small stall owners know that – but MCA cannot admit it”.

So, when pressed by reporters for a public response to Singapore leader Lee Kuan Yew’s accusation that Malaysia marginalises the Chinese community, Ong responded with a Chinese proverb: “Whether the water in the tea cup is hot or cold, he who drinks it knows best.”

This is in contrast with the bumbling responses of MCA president Chua Soi Lek and his deputy Liow Tiong Lai with regards to the shameful police attack on innocent citizens during the peaceful Bersih 2.0 protest in Tung Shin Hospital.

Chua and Liow are now not only exposed as liars when they tried to side the brutal police by denying there was no attack in the hospital, they are confirmed garbage politicians who cannot be trusted as community leaders.
