Kit Siang No 1 racist, says Dr M

 | May 4, 2013

The former prime minister urges voters to reject Pakatan and vote for BN.

PERMATANG PAUH: Former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad launched a blistering attack on DAP, calling it a racist party and labelling its veteran politician Lim Kit Siang as “number one racist”.

He also said that PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim and Islamist party PAS are destroyers of Malay unity in the country.

He said the DAP led by Kit Siang adopted a “Malaysian Malaysia” political theme from Singapore’s PAP, merely to unsettle Chinese-based MCA.

He said the DAP used its “Malaysian Malaysia” battle cry to defeat and replace MCA as Chinese representative party.

He added that the DAP has made all of sorts of demands for the Chinese and instigated the Chinese to hate the Malays.

Mahathir said Lim wanted meritocracy to ensure Chinese would get all.

He said Lim and the DAP did not want the Malays to enjoy any benefits on their own motherland.

He lumped anyone who opposed Malay rights as racists.

“The DAP is a racist and chauvinist party. Kit Siang is number one racist,” he told an indoor Umno-organised election gathering here last night.

He also hit ouat at old foe Anwar and PAS for destroying Malay unity and being subservient to the DAP to safeguard their selfish political interests.

For instance, he said Anwar and PAS have sold out Malays in the country by agreeing to the DAP demand to allow Christians to use the term “Allah” in their Malay edition of the Bible.

“Due to the weakening of Malay unity, we have to give in to others,” said the 87-year-old, blaming Anwar and PAS for causing the disunity.

Citing a few examples, including the formation of PAS in the 1940s, he said the party was misusing religion for mere political mileage.

Labelling Anwar as the biggest liar in the world, Mahathir said the Pakatan Rakyat stalwart seemed to have a lot of money as he was seen shuttling around in chartered flights and helicopters recently from Langkawi to Alor Setar and then to Naka in Kedah.

He called on the Permatang Pauh constituents to reject Anwar if they reject lies.

“Permatang Pauh is not owned by Anwar. It’s owned by the people of Permatang Pauh. They have the right to choose a truthful representative, not a liar,” he said.

He also urged Malaysians to reject Pakatan and vote in Barisan Nasional tomorrow.
