Here come the “blue transformers”

Yes, it’s the MCA men, who are feeling blue.

They promise to go to ‘war’ in the forthcoming general election, wearing their new ‘weapons’, i.e. blue-coloured anti-Pakatan Rakyat T-shirts (hopefully without V-neck). This is their idea of transforming themselves in order to “suit to (election) time”. Never mind about addressing economic, social and political challenges facing this country and beyond.

It would do them good, though, if they flirt with the idea of wearing something yellow instead so as to be consonant with the changing political landscape in the country.

But then, who are we to offer suggestion to a bunch of grown-ups who get that ‘feel good’ sensation out of the blue?

The rape of reason

MCA Wanita vice-chairperson Heng Seai Kie reportedly warned non-Muslim women that Muslim men would in effect rape them, particularly those who don’t conform to the Islamic dress code. This act, she declared, would be condoned by Nik Aziz and, by extension, his Pas party.

If Seai Kie is to be believed, then it is most advisable that she clamp herself with a chastity belt pronto to avoid untoward incident — and stay away from Malay-Muslim individuals, including those potent politicians who walk the corridors of power and those who have come into a political and electoral pact with her MCA party.

Such is the politics of fear that is being peddled by those who are being haunted by their own political uncertainty.
