Embroiled in the Penang hillslope development protests by residents in his constituency and as the Star reports in an "Uphill battle for residents", he needs all the help he can get -
"At the height of the issue, Liew was seen up on Penang Hill with his Chief Minister at the launch of some hilltop cafe. Liew is clearly trying to stay in the good books of his DAP boss and he probably figures he can hold on to Bukit Bendera without the support of the Tanjung Bungah people."The Star report gives a detailed account of Liew as an embattled DAP member in the hillslope development uproar by residents in his constituency.
In "The Last Mile", Liew Chin Tong gives as a very, very brief and hazy history lesson of the 1997 Asian financial crisis, which I would like to remind the MP for Bukit Bendera, would have pushed Malaysia downhill into the abyss, no thanks to the person whose balls he now carries, Anwar Ibrahim.
Quote of a quote by YB Liew -
Chow Kon Yeow, MP for Tanjong, has called Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim a “bakal perdana menteri” (future prime minister) in an interview with a Penang-based Chinese newspaper recently, to which Anwar half-jokingly replied that he has had that title for the last two decades.adding later -
"But this is not just about Anwar. This is about all of us. I was just twenty when the worst ever haze clouded the Malaysian skies in July 1997. The haze still troubles us 15 years later, similar to that of our political stalemate."Yes, for this post, it's also not about Anwar.
It's about Liew Chin Tong and his beloved party the DAP.
Sorry, my mistake, it is about Anwar Ibrahim and the DAP.
For YB Liew, here is some history lesson for his good self, by myself.
I give you "The Evolution of Anwar Ibrahim According to Lim Kit Siang - A Leopard Never Change It's Spots".
"Wow, Uncle Lim, your Rocket article awesome. Thanks.", "No prolem Bro, luckily that stupid fellow Liew don't know what we know."
DAP supremo, Lim Kit Siang, father of Liew Chin Tong's great Penang leader -
Anwar started his political career with the reputation of a liberal, but he nows seems to be the new advocate for repression and suffcation of dissent.There you have it, how hypocritical the DAP has become, especially for YB Liew, now carrying the great liar's balls.
Is this the price Anwar must pay so that he could make his bid for the future Prime Ministership in the country?
Anwar should stop resorting to the politics of threats and intimidation, but should instead open up UMNO Youth and UMNO leadership to the legitimate grievances of all communities and sections in the country so that a viable and enduring Malaysian nation could be built.
Anwar Ibrahim should know that his warning is meaningless and an empty one, for it is merely a warning that he would violate the constitution and the law of sedition. - Parliamentary Opposition Leader, DAP Secretary-General and MP for Kota Melaka, Lim Kit Siang, in Petaling Jaya, 21st April 1986
What moral values is Anwar Ibrahim trying to instil under the new Education Act 1990 when he is going round the country telling lies and inciting inter-racial misunderstanding and hatred to serve his political ends?
Anwar Ibrahim has been excelling himself every day by telling more lies and inciting more inter-racial misunderstanding and hatred, as if his political future is in great jeopardy.
Anwar told more than one lie in his speech in Trengganu yesterday.
If this is not blatant race baiting, and incitement of inter-racial misunderstanding and hatred, I do not know what is.
What is worse, this race-baiting and incitement of inter¬racial misunderstanding and hatred is built on lies.
I am also surprised by Anwar Ibrahim’s claim that he has in his possession a letter signed by a leader of PAS and Semangat 46, supporting the DAP action – which he alleged is anti-Malay, anti-Islam and anti-Bahasa Malaysia.
I challenge Anwar Ibrahim to produce this letter, for it is time that top government leaders and Ministers should stop promoting the culture of lies and falsehoods in Malaysia, if the education system is to produce properly educated and morally upright Malaysians.
For the good, of the nation and the people of Malaysia, I advise Anwar Ibrahim to stop telling lies and to stop inciting inter¬racial hatred and misunderstanding. - Parliamentary Opposition Leader, DAP Secretary-General and MP for Tanjung, Lim Kit Siang, in Penang on Wednesday, 29th August 1990
The emotional outburst by the Deputy Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, against the DAP in his ‘illegal public rallies’ in Kangar yesterday is the worst example so far.
One English newspaper reported Anwar accusing the DAP of being “traitors to sabotage efforts to uplift the Muslims” while a Bahasa Malaysia newspaper which gave the following frontpage headline to Anwar’s speech “Awas Pengkhianat” with the secondary headline “Anwar kecam pihak yang diperalat oleh DAP” started the report with the lead: “Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim hare ini menggesa rakyat supaya rakyat mengepikan pengkhianat pembangunan dikalangan orang Melayu sendiri yang sebenarnya didalangi oleh DAP.” - DAP Secretary-General and MP for Tanjong, Lim Kit Siang,in Petaling Jaya on Monday, January 23, 1995
Cannot blame Liew though, his recollection of history goes back 15 years, it was 25 years ago that Anwar arrived at the political scene made merry hell and got sacked, and good old YB Liew was only 9 years old in standard 3 then. How could YB Liew know, right?
But Liew Chin Tong must be thanked for his history lesson.
It will remind us about the Asian financial crisis and machinations of the great liar, Anwar Ibrahim.
It is said "Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it" and the DAP in their quest for power are now riding on and allowing the same great liar, Anwar Ibrahim to spew more lies, even hailing the ex-convict for corruption as the next prime minister of Malaysia.
YB Liew Chin Tong in closing your piece you said, "This is our historic opportunity to do the right things, together, in the last mile of a long walk that began 15 years ago".
I say my peace in closing,
THIS IS OUR HISTORIC OPPORTUNITY TO DO THE RIGHT THING, TOGETHER, IN THE LAST NAUTICAL MILE OF A LONG DESCENT THAT BEGAN 25 YEARS AGO - TO GET RID ANWAR IBRAHIM
