I am secretly amused by the public exchanges of MCA and the outsourced racist NGO.
It is a classic case of playing what the Chinese people called “Shuang Huang 双簧“. In SH, two persons would go on stage and each would either play along with the other or rebut the other with words, jokes and stories.
The fact that both these 2 organisations have close ties to the BIg Brother points to an agenda both are supporting – – to win back the voters from their respective spheres of influence. One is trying hard to instill fear on the majority group, and the other is trying to be seen as a champion of the Chinese Malaysians.
Many would fall for this game, just like many spectators like to watch “Shuang Huang”.
The fact that the Big Brother is not taking any action on the NGO as well as Utusan speaks so much for itself. In politics, you need to read between the lines and look for subtle signs. All the signs are telling me that these organisations have the tacit support of the power that be. They have also succeeded in gaining back some lost grounds from the unsuspecting and more straight forward semi-rural and rural crowds. Now the burden has been placed on the DVD actor to try to gain back the urban votes. Even a few percent swing will be enough for the Master.
Be sure of one thing — there will be more of these “Shuang Huang” acts in the run-up to the next Big One.
