DAP MP slams anti-Guan Eng, Ambiga posters

(The Malaysian Insider) – DAP MP Lim Lip Eng expressed outrage today over posters found in Taman Tun Dr Ismail here calling Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng a “racist” and Bersih 2.0 chairman Datuk S. Ambiga a gay sex proponent.

Pictures provided by the MP showed many anti-Guan Eng posters plastered along several spots along Jalan Datuk Sulaiman and Jalan Burhanuddin Helmi in the urban neighbourhood, some of which bore a Nazi flag with the words, “Lim Guan Eng Racist”.

Ambiga and national laureate Datuk A. Samad Said, who is Bersih 2.0 co-chairman, were also not spared, with posters claiming, “A vote for Ambiga is a vote for free sex”.

It is understood that the posters have already been taken down.

“I wish to express my utter disgust regarding the sight of politically-motivated, intolerant, race-hatred posters along Jalan Datuk Sulaiman and Jalan Burhanuddin Helmi (in) TTDI,” Lip Eng said in a statement today.

“Overnight some cowards must have come to put up these posters… I’m surprised that the police did not catch any of these cowards in action as these posters were pasted at bus stops, public phone booths… along Jalan Datuk Sulaiman and Burhanuddin Helmi.”

The DAP lawmaker said he was “insulted” by the posters, which he noted were put up in a multiracial neighbourhood on the eve of Maulidur Rasul.

He also said the police must probe the matter and bring to book those responsible for disseminating the posters as soon as possible.
