Chua Soi Lek: Move with the times, drop May 13 talk

#1 Post by Noah » Tue Aug 17, 2010 9:03 pm

Malaysiakini headline:
Soi Lek to DPM: Move with the times, drop May 13 talk
Aug 17, 10 5:12PM
The MCA president says Malaysians have matured since the 1969 race riots and there is no need to beat the "racial war drum" now.
Bravo Mr Chua Soi Lek. I think this kind of leadership is what MCA needs at the moment. Speak the truth even if the truth hurts.

I hope UMNO can respond maturely. If they don't, it will expose their immaturity.

Hi gpmal. I was referring to using fear (May 13 episode) to further an agenda. If you are referring to equity distribution which may lead to another episode of racial disharmony then the government should prevent such an episode from ever recurring again by making sure law and order in the country is maintained.

The graph merely supports the contention that after over 4 decades of implementation, the NEP does not help in equity redistribution. What we need is law's that protect equality based on merit. Those who work harder deserves better.

That blog is so bias and one sided, I would not even bother reading it.
A better read would be from Malaysiakini which is independent and not link to any political party.

The local political landscape is littered with landmines. Step at the wrong place and you are history.

This guy (Kumbang) says otherwise about malaysiakini:


Kalau anda semua masih ingat pada tahun 2001 telah keluar laporan di Far Eastern Economic Review (FEER) mengenai Malaysiakini yang ditaja oleh George Soros melalui Persatuan Akhbar Asia Tenggara (SEAPA) yang dibiayai oleh Open Society Institute(OSI)milik George Soros.Perkara ini telah menyebabkan Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif Malaysiakini pada ketika itu Premesh Chandran menafikan laporan FEER itu dan menganggapnya sebagai tidak benar.

Tapi penafian itu tidak bermakna apabila Bekas Editor Berita Malaysiakini, Chon Yen Long, kemudiannya mendakwa bahawa Malaysiakini menerima wang sejumlah RM 188,000 daripada Media Development Loan Fund (MDLF) yang mana OSI milik Soros menjadi penaja utamanya. klik sini

Dan perkara yang membuktikan Premesh Chandran adalah seorang penipu yang mengatakan Malaysiakini langsung tidak berkaitan dengan SEAPA dan MLDF serta Soros ialah laporan laporan Janet Steele, The International Journal of Press/Politics 2009; 14; 91 bertajuk “Professionalism Online: How Malaysiakini Challenges Authoritarianism”, (klik di sini) dia melaporkan Malaysiakini mendapat tajaan George Soros melalui Open Society Institute yang turut menaja Southeast Asia Press Alliance (SEAPA) dan Media Development Loan Fund (MDLF).

“Malaysiakini’s initial funding came from the Southeast Asia Press Allian(SEAPA). Later they completed a private equity transaction with the Media Development Loan Fund (MDLF) and set up a company with 5 million shares (Tong


2004: 306)”



“In February 2001, the Far Eastern Economic Review quoted billionaire George Soros as saying that his Open Society Institute funded several media outlets in Asia, including Malaysiakini. Although FEER later published a clarification stating that OSI funded the Southeast Asia Press Alliance (SEAPA) and not Malaysiakini, this made little difference to Malaysian authorities and local media, which continued to use the purported connection with Soros to discredit the news organization (Tong 2004)

Manakala Wikipedia Bahasa Indonesia turut melaporkan Malaysiakini menerima dana 100,000 US Dollar Amerika di awal penubuhannya dan begitu juga pihak Malaysiakini sendiri mengakui perkara ini tahun lepas dan membuktikan Premesh Chandran menipu mengenai perkara ini pada tahun 2001. Klik sini dan sini.

Perkara di atas menyebabkan hal penafian mengenai Malaysiakini adalah tidak berkaitan langsung dengan Soros adalah satu pembohongan dan mungkin dilakukan untuk melindungi penaja mereka itu serta ingin menggambarkan kononnya mereka benar-benar bebas tetapi ternyata laporan mereka adalah pro kepada Anwar Ibrahim agen Amerika di negara ini.

Malaysiakini, SEAPA ditaja NED organisasi mirip CIA

Apa yang Kumbang pasti Malaysiakini bukan sahaja ditaja Soros sahaja tetapi turut berkaitan dengan NED,organisasi yang ditubuhkan Amerika untuk menggantikan CIA bagi menjalankan operasi rahsia mereka di seluruh dunia.

Mengikut laporan tahunan NED 2009, melaporkan mereka telah memberikan Mkini Dotcom Sdn Bhd, syarikat yang menjalankan operasi Malaysiakini dana sebanyak 100,000 US Dollar untuk membantu Malaysiakini menyaingi arus media perdana. Perkara yang membuktikan Malaysiakini mengikut telunjuk pihak barat dalam penyampaian media mereka.

Turut menarik apabila Persatuan Akhbar Asia Tenggara (SEAPA) yang pernah membantu penubuhan Malaysiakini turut menerima dana daripada NED sejak tahun 2005 lagi hingga tahun lepas. Perkara ini ada dinyatakan di laman web NED sendiri. Klik sini, sini, sini, sini, sini, sini, sini dan sini.

Apa yang menariknya, SEAPA menerima dana itu hanya untuk membawa agenda mereka di Malaysia sahaja walaupun mereka berpangkalan di Filipina. Dana yang mereka terima itu bermula daripada tahun 2005 hingga tahun 2008. Pada tahun 2009, mereka tidak menerima dana itu tetapi Mkini Dotcom Sdn Bhd, syarikat yang menjalankan operasi Malaysiakini menerima dana itu pula.

Apa yang boleh dibaca di sini ialah adakah berkemungkinan sebenarnya Malaysiakini membawa agenda SEAPA di Malaysia yang kononnya membawa agenda kebebasan media tetapi mereka pula ditaja oleh Amerika. Di mana bebasnya mereka?

Apa yang jelas hal pembiayaan ini yang membuktikan cakap-cakap orang di luar sana yang SEAPA dikawal oleh CIA dan Amerika adalah benar kerana secara konsisten menerima dana besar daripada Amerika. Perkara ini juga tidak menghairankan kerana SEAPA turut ada menerima anugerah-anugerah daripada NED yang ramai diketahui umum sebagai simbolik mereka dicaturkan NED dan Amerika seperti Anwar yang turut menerima pelbagai anugerah daripada negara Uncle Sam itu.

Antara agensi yang bertopengkan kebebasan yang turut menerima dana daripada NED ialah SUARAM yang turut menerima dana daripada secara konsisten daripada mereka sejak tahun 2005 hingga tahun lepas. Untuk rekod, aktivis SUARAM kebanyakkannya terdiri daripada pemimpin-pemimpin pembangkang.

Selain itu agensi NED seperti IRI dan NDI yang mana Anwar Ibrahim menjadi panel pemikirnya turut menerima dana besar daripada NED walaupun selepas pentadbiran diambil-alih Obama membuktikan agenda mereka di Malaysia berterusan. Untuk rekod IRI, dikatakan pernah membantu Anwar dalam pilihanraya umum lalu dan kini sedang membantu PKR untuk menang di Sarawak dan hal Sarawak ini ada dinyatakan oleh NED sendiri di laman web mereka di sini. Laman web itu menyebut :

International Republican Institute
$200,000
To support democratic development in Malaysia by improving political communications and expanding domestic election monitoring. In conjunction with local partners, IRI will commission polls to gauge public opinion on a variety of issues and support consultations with all major political parties to improve message development, internal democracy, and organizational development. IRI will also work with a non-partisan domestic election-monitoring organization to conduct a long-term election observation in the state of Sarawak.

Berselindung di sebalik kononnya mengajar rakyat Malaysia untuk demokrasi tetapi mereka pula sebenarnya mengajar PKR untuk menang di Sarawak. Perkara ini pernah Kumbang ulas sebelum ini di sini.

Malaysiakini perlu nafikan tajaan terbaru ini, jika tidak jangan harap rakyat percaya laporan mereka adalah bebas!

Thanks, gpmal. Its good to know who is the sponsor of Malaysiakini. Malaysiakini is fighting for fair media and press freedom. It gets us the news which we would not see in mainstream media. So I do not see any problem if anyone wants to sponsor something which fights for a good cause.

President Obama recently addressed this corporate sponsorship issue in his weekly address:



But lets not digress. The issue I wanted to bring up is the use of May the 13th episode. The use of fear to further an agenda to support the NEM/NEP which in the first place does not benefit the bumiputeras. Nothing kills motivation more than crutches and handouts and nothing drives motivation more than repression and inequality.
