A leopard cannot change its spots

The views expressed by Muhyiddin is a typical and old UMNO thinking on race relations in Malaysia.

UMNO under Najib and Muhyiddin is alike hardcore drug addicts, they will never change although they try very hard to change.

Muhyiddin is my MP in Pagoh, but he will never get my vote no matter how many millions he “donated” to my primary school before the election day.

UMNO treats Chinese like beggar, and abusing “money” from the taxpayers to buy votes.

UMNO is running our government, does not mean the government is the country. My loyalty only the King and nation, not to any government selected by the rakyat.

Muhyiddin himself shall go back to school, not the reporters.

Pak Anwar, get ready to be next Malaysian PM.

MUHYIDDIN: Ya, kadang-kadang kita berasa terpedaya juga kerana zahirnya nampak macam ‘ok’, sambutan dengan tepukan gemuruh tetapi mungkin sudah ada tertanam dalam hati iaitu sesuatu tidak mudah hendak berubah, pokoknya masalah isu Perak terutamanya di kalangan masyarakat Cina yang mungkin telah dipengaruhi dengan sentimen simpati kepada Datuk Seri Ir.Mohamad Nizar Jamaluddin, kononnya dia ‘dijatuhkan’, lepas itu kononnya dasar memberi pegangan tanah selama 99 tahun dilihat dasar yang menguntungkan.

Ini yang mungkin menyebabkan sukar BN mendapat sokongan walaupun kita fikir bila mereka hendak sekolah Cina dibantu, kita bantu, sepatutnya merekamembalas budi”. Pada waktu itu, kita pun tidak berharap sokongan kaum Cina akan meningkat 40 peratus dan sebagainya cuma kita berharap ada peningkatan sedikit tetapi apa yang berlaku ia mencatatkan penurunan, macam tidak ada penghargaan terhadap apa yang kita lakukan.

Muhyiddin: I did not call Chinese ungrateful

PUTRAJAYA (April 14, 2009) : Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said today his statements over the coalition’s loss in Bukit Gantang had been twisted and misrepresented by some vernacular newspapers, causing him to be criticised by various quarters.

Speaking to reporters after taking office as the new education minister today, Muhyiddin denied saying that Chinese voters were ungrateful to the Barisan Nasional

He lashed out at the irresponsible reporting, saying: “If they don’t understand the Malay language, then we can send them back to school.”

Muhyiddin said all he meant was why the Chinese voters looked as if they did not appreciate BN and vote for the ruling coalition in the recent Bukit Gantang by-election, as it was his sincere desire to know what happened.

He added that he wanted to analyse the situation (on the defeat) and not as reported in the media.
“I did not call the Chinese ungrateful,” he said.

“My statements were twisted and (I was) misquoted,” he added, referring to the newspapers who published several follow-up articles based on Muhyiddin’s interview with Mingguan Malaysa last week.

Muhyiddin said he had only wanted to know why the Chinese community’s confidence (in BN) was not shown in the ballot boxes and he had said it only within the confines of the by-election’s result.

It was reported in the media early this week that Muhyiddin said the Chinese voters were ungrateful by not voting for BN even though the government had assisted the community in many ways.

The statements drew sharp responses from the Chinese community, particularly from Gerakan and MCA.

Gerakan’s deputy president Datuk Chang Ko Youn was quoted in the media as disagreeing with Muhyiddin while MCA’s response was to list down a list of issues that could have caused the Chinese community to turn away from the BN.
