I know I said I would blog about the results of the MCA elections between 7-8 this evening but I did not until now. Why? The answer in obvious. I still cannot get over the shock. Are some people for real? I really feel so sick to the core of my being!
I am so appalled that the situation is insane. It was bordering lunacy but now it has gone beyond the borders of sanity.
Having a person with that type of history to head an organization is most worrying. While I agree that none is perfect, one just has to look at various web sites to see the type of comments being posted re the new leadership. What a crying shame!
Where are moral standards? Where is the love for all things bright, beautiful, moral, exemplary for young and old to follow? How can a person with such a past be accepted as a leader when others such as DSAI or Elizabeth Wong have had to fight for their reputation because of the adverse onslaught on their character following various allegations or alleged situations? Is it fair?
What are we supposed to tell our children or the youth of today? That it is acceptable to partake in certain activities as long as you belong to the right group? That one can have a clean slate when we apologize? Apologizing and repenting are honorable acts but what I am concerned about here would be how people perceive the Chinese community when led by such leaders. I wonder if MCA Wanita Chief Chew Mei Fun will follow through with her statement that she will resign if CSL became the President. What did she hope to achieve with such a statement?
I am Chinese and I am thoroughly ashamed of this situation. Since the 1980's, I lost my confidence in MCA. What has happened tonight has eroded whatever iota of hope that a miracle could turn this party around. To think that enemies could work together as a team in inconceivable. That one betrayed the previous leader and now will work the new leader casts doubts on the integrity of leaders. How can these people profess to want to work for the Chinese community? Don't they have any dignity or sense of shame? Disgusting indeed!
My thoughts are incoherent as I cannot make sense out of this nonsense any more.
What a nightmare indeed!!!
