济弱扶倾 – 孙中山 三民主义
Only if we rescue the weak and lift up the fallen will we be carrying out the obligation of our nation. – Three Principles of the People
Above, the photo is rural China but it's the same story – a typical Chinese story, centuries old – that can be seen and found today whether in Kuala Sepetang or Seberang Perai, Kuala Kurau or Pontian Kechil: kid, morning school, afternoon farm work or at the noodle stand; mothers without Sakmongkol Umno patronage, or Francis 'Mahathir' Yeoh subcontracts, or DAP Guan Eng lollipop handouts, must find their own way in this life and for the next generation.
Lisa Ng, copywriter, is a Hannah Yeoh, Elizabeth Wong contemporary in Malaysia: city Chinese born, kebangsaan school, Australian university, English at home and at work, and like Malaysiakini editors well connected to the orang putih monied class, a Christian, among the Chosen Ones, DAP/PKR in politics.
Like Khoo Kay Kim, Lisa doesn't think much of Chinese schools, neither city nor rural. No. More than that, she says (in LoyarBurok then repeatedly sung to the heavens in Kit Siang's blog, in Malaysian Insider and elsewhere) those schools churn out "sick, useless" Chinese children incapable of giving road directions and speaking no English. "Too bad," she adds, cocking her nose in the haughty air of someone talking down to another.
Yes, of course; too bad.
Lisa Ng must be an icon in the English ad business, glorified by the fraternity, money jingling in her pockets, prizes by the dozens, while Hannah Yeoh, tweeting endlessly, has made it to the top rung country elite, an ADUN making laws – impressive! – and Eli Wong, surrounded by lawyers, a greenie in the fashion of white people, has a position ruling Selangor.
Below (clips 2, 3 and 4 from top) are Lisa Ng's sick, useless Chinese children from copycat (Khoo's word) Chinese schools that produce failures and no Nobel prizes – Khoo Kay Kim's defining purpose of an education.
Lisa Ng and Khoo are not alone in their thinking….
All together, though, they surpass and beat Perkasa's Ibrahim Ali who, mostly, would rant about the Malay place under the sun and not spit at other people at every opportunity. Whereas, however, the editors of Malaysiakini, Malaysian Insider and Malaysia Today will go on and on and on with their propaganda and their habitual cultivation of thinking that Ibrahim is the only bigot, Barisan is the only racist, while on their part, every other day, they permit, promote and inculcate the calumny, slander and humiliation of an entire race in the name of orang putih free speech, independence, and press freedom.
This endless perversity; instead of aiding, supporting the weak, they spit at them. From where had Lisa, et al, and those editors, picked up their bangsa Malaysia values and morality? … 我们离开吧. 车到山前必有路，船到桥头自然直.
(Turn up volume, please wait 50 seconds, press on to the end and you'll sense its meaning even if you don't know the hanzi. Two things to note: the tempo in the music and song drawn from a humiliated historical past and the drum, an old Chinese battlefield tool that entered mainstream arts culture.)
