MCA proves to be UMNO's dog

The Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA) is supposed to uphold the benefits and defend the welfare of the Malaysian Chinese community in the country. However, MCA's existence today in the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition is not to represent the Malaysian Chinese voice in BN, but to bring the UMNO voice to the Chinese community.

The decision to buy Nanyang Press Holdings led to the disunity of the Chinese-based MCA. Team A led by former President Tun Dr. Ling Liong Sik bowed to UMNO's order to control Nanyang's newspapers through MCA's investment arm, Huaren Holdings. But Team B led by former Deputy President Datuk Lim Ah Lek refused to comply with UMNO's U Must Not Object instruction to purchase Nanyang.

Now, the MCA will be the dog of UMNO again by going down to the grassroots to explain the recent UMNO's racist remarks. MCA top leaders including its four useless ministers, will meet with grassroots leaders by way of a nationwide roadshow to explain the party's stand on several current issues, including the racist remarks made by UMNO delegates.

There is actually no need to explain anything to the grassroot leaders. MCA should instead meet up with their BN partners to lodge their unhappiness and uneasiness over the remarks made. MCA should not end up explaining UMNO's Islam Hadhari racist policies.
