Malaysiakini reported that about 600 people, including state Umno leaders and allies such as Perkasa, attended a rally held in front of the Sunway Carnival Mall this afternoon to protest Machang Bubuk State Assemblyman Lee Khai Loon’s recent kangkung-theme flash mob that deemed a ridicule to the Prime Minister.
However, it is interesting to note that the whole protest rally is more about bashing the DAP rather than Lee Khai Loon and it gave the impression that Lee is from the DAP. Banners carrying words such as ‘Insulting the PM is akin to insulting Malays’, ‘Penang Malays survive by eating kangkung’, ‘ABCD - Asal Bukan Cina DAP’ and ‘DAP is the enemy of Islam’ were held by these protestors. Of all, the most striking thing of all is a banner in blood red that screamed ‘Kerana mulut Pemimpin DAP, 13 May 1969 Terjadi….Mau lagi kaa?”
And here we have Kepala Batas MP, Reezal Merican asking the DAP leaders not to “hide behind” Lee and another UMNO leader, Permatang Pauh Umno chief Mohd Zaidi Mohd Said said they chose Sunway Carnival Mall as the finishing point for the protest as that is where DAP usually organise its activities. The protestors mentioned nothing of the fact that Lee Khai Loon is from PKR and not the DAP.
I guess the protestors forget to check the background of Lee and they assume that any Chinese assemblyman in Penang must be from DAP. Check your facts before firing any solvo, dear UMNO and Perkasa leaders. Don’t make yourself, your party and the Barisan Nasional looks like a fool and became a laughing stock. We lose badly during GE12 and GE13 not because of Chinese Tsunami but because the people are sick of loose cannon leaders like you all.
