|So, DAP is not subservient to the Raja Melayu|
It's what the DAP is good at, I've concluded: they would attack the Melayu institutions or traditions - not all of them and not too frequently but just enough to leave the impression (for the benefit of the growing number of easily impressionable Cina) that the DAP isn't afraid to take on the Malay establishment in order to represent the interest of the Cina. It is as racist a political game as it can get.
The Mole has the story on Ngeh Koo Ham, the DAP Perak strongman, openly taking a dig at the MCA for respecting the Sultan of Johor's authority in the appointment of the State's exco [Ngeh criticizes MCA for being subservient to Sultan Johor].
To Ngeh, it is not loyalty or Kesetiaan kepada Raja - it has to be described as subservient. The effect, of course, is negative on MCA and that IS the objective. Make MCA, a Cina party, look bad for bowing to the wishes of a Raja Melayu.
Ngeh isn't the first DAP leader to belittle the Johor Istana. And as long as there are Malaysians who believe that their race is superior to others, this kind of politics will thrive. Five years ago, after the so-called "tsunami" of PRU12, we witnessed the same thing. Read my two postings on that: To wear of not to wear the Songkok? and Wah, Gwee, so daring one!
