Rockybru and Dnightcaller have listed down a clear cut and simple analysis on Tee Keat's position.
You can read the two articles :
1. Najib's headache, Tee Keat's heartache
2. Of MCA's presidential turmoil : My wish ...
Others have decided to use this opportunity to attack MCA and Ong Tee Keat as racists and conspirators with Gerakan and DAP on Chinese rights in Malaysia all these while.
Well, let me be honest with you. I have talked to MCA leaders as well as grassroots men. I can say that MCA has never conspired with Gerakan or DAP. I know this as a matter of fact.
Moreover, if we are conspirators with Gerakan or DAP, then MCA's Vice President would not have said "MCA will sink or swim with UMNO" in January 2009.
We won't slap ourselves in a time when the Chinese were already saying that MCA leaders are not fit to represent the community.
Thus, we are not conspiring with anyone but we work hand in hand with UMNO, MIC, Gerakan and other BN component parties to develop our beloved country.
Also, MCA has never blackmailed the BN leadership and neither is it true that Chinese will take over in the next election as warned by Perkasa.
What Dong Zong, Jiao Zong, Hua Zong and the ACCCIM demand is not the official stand by MCA at all. MCA merely facilitates and hand up the comments or suggestions to the Government when necessary.
But they do have their rights to voice out their inputs to the Government, just like how Perkasa, MPM, and others execute theirs.
In fact, recently, there were strong rumours that these Chinese NGOs are to replace MCA. Surely, it wasn't MCA's idea.
So please. Get the facts right first before pouring out the unfounded arguments. I do not wish to see baseless accusations being used to destroy the coalition's unity and to sink MCA.
