Say no to Chin Peng the ‘former terrorist’, say yes to Communist China!

Posted by barbie on June 9, 2009

I applaud the decision by the Malaysian government to dismiss and not entertain any idea of allowing Chin Peng the ‘former terrorist’ to return to this country.

Government Will Not Allow Chin Peng To Return, Says Najib

PUTRAJAYA, May 27 (Bernama) — The Malaysian government will not allow former Communist Party of Malaya (CPM) leader Chin Peng to reside in the country.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the return of the former terrorist would lead to dissatisfaction among the people, especially those who fought the communists and families who lost their loved ones during the CPM’s revolt from 1948 to 1981 (known as the Emergency).

The government is absolutely right, many victims suffered during the communist insurgency, Chin Peng and his commandos killed many people in the past and they certainly do not deserve any consideration from us. No, I didn’t say that. Our very wise, informed and cultured Datuk Datuk Seri Utama Dr. Rais bin Yatim said that.

Several quarters and individuals, including Information, Communication and Culture Minister Dr Rais Yatim, have opposed the idea.

“Chin Peng and his commandos killed many people in the past and they certainly do not deserve any consideration from us,” Rais had said.

The communists abused this country and we had been shackled through killings and terrible actions committed by them,” he added.

We should never allow Chin Peng to come back to Malaysia. Thanks to our sensitive Defence Minister Datuk Ahmad Zahid Hamidi for putting it in context.

Defence Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi had said his return would be an insult to the families of nearly 50,000 British colonial and government troops who died during the “Malayan Emergency”. (psst, the 50,000 figure is a crap is you ask me)

But I have some disturbing questions.

1. Isn’t Chin Peng was just a puppet for the Chinese Communist Party? His party, Communist Party of Malaya (CPM) was supported by its China main counterpart throughout their four decades in Malaysia. My question is, why punish the puppet, but not the master? Obviously we should punish China!

Let’s severe our all our diplomatic and bilateral ties with China to show our sensitive considerations to the suffering families that went through killings and terrible actions committed by the communists. Let’s show them Malaysia is serious about its past history, goddammit!

2. If I am not mistaken, China is ruled by Communist Party of China (CPC). So, let me get this right, China is ruled by a bunch of communists and why the hell we are courting them now? What happened to ‘the communist abused this country’ and ‘they certainly do not deserve any consideration from us?

What is our beloved Prime Minister doing frolicking in China then? Is he not worry that his visit would lead to dissatisfaction among the people, especially those who fought the communists and families who lost their loved ones?

I repeat, let’s severe our all our diplomatic and bilateral ties with China to show our sensitive considerations to the suffering families that went through killings and terrible actions committed by the communists. Let’s show them Malaysia is serious about its past history, goddammit

3. If I remember correctly, the British and Japanese  also killed a lot of people during their occupation of Malaya no? The British sure killed and injured a lot of people back then.  Remember the fights by Tok Janggut, Dato’ Bahaman, Mat Kilau, Maharaja Lela? I bet my last cent the British killed more people here during their occupation compared to the emergency period.

How about the war crimes and astrocities the Japanese commited against the people of Malaya during World War II? Wait, did the communists kill less people than them?

Let’s severe all our diplomatic and bilateral ties with Japan and British (now Great Britain) to show our sensitive considerations to the suffering families that went through killings and terrible actions committed by the Japanese. Let’s show them Malaysia is serious about its past history, goddammit!

Well, I do not agree and I don’t really care if Chin Peng was a freedom fighter, but that’s beside the point. Just how much longer we want to live in the shadows of the past? May 13th, Malaya Emergency etc. often quoted by our leaders to ‘remind’ us, about what? You should know better. Selective issues, don’t you think? Why it is only Chin Peng not allowed to come back to Malaysia? How about other CPM leaders?

Conclusion: Only in Malaysia, it would seem like history has to dictate how we we live tomorrow. Rather sad.

ps: I am sure Chin Peng was not a freedom fighter. He’s taking arms for fun, just like how I shoot people for fun at my Counter Strike game. Okay, Let 4 Dead lah, nobody play CS now. Okay, bad joke.

pss: What is this ‘my father’, ‘my father’ and ‘my father’ crap keep repeated by Najib? He has no backbone to stand on his own? To claim his own credit, other that relying on his father’s name?

    It is typical case of not being clear of PAST / PRESENT/ FUTURE and the correspondent LOCAL / GLOBAL / COSMIC aspects of things / affairs in human history / current situation / future outlook. I think a strong dose of “In the Spirit of the Three Musketeers” is required.In the Spirit of the Three Musketeers

    There is something really wrong with some of your statement, if i may add. Please read some of the autobiography written by our past leaders, most importantly – Tunku. Your approach of lesser of the two evil is flawed.

    First and foremost, the People Communist Party in China made it public during the Tunku’s time that they had to contact with Chin Peng and never gave out orders to Chin Peng (they were busy with their own war).

    Chin Peng’s act of not accepting the amnesty, automatically categorized him as enemy. Need I mention the lives that was taken by him? I do have the official records.

    The British were our past problems at that time and so was the Japanese, you must understand, these are colonist – basically strangers. but Chin Peng was a local, and we pledged him to surrender as the war was over. My granpa fought against the communist and he told me the emergency was probably the hardest time.

    The moment Chin Peng refused the Baling Treaty, he was on his own. He was enemy. Be fair, should any of our past leaders still alive today, do you honestly think they’d allow Chin Peng to come back?

    Tokenism bears its ugly head this time. Certain quarters are playing this Chin Peng’s card to their advantage. Shame on those.

    We’ve allowed many Communist leaders to return before, I’m sure Chin Peng will get his turn someday.

    Hey Adzim,

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts, much appreciated.

    Apart from drawing the comparisons of ‘lesser of two evils’ to show that our government is practising double standard and hypocrisy, my post is to ask a question, do we still live in the shadows of our pasts? As I bolded the ‘past history’ and ‘were our problems’ repeatedly, I think you get my point.

    He WAS enemy.

    Right?

    I agree with you, shame on those who are playing Chin Peng’s card to their advantage.

    Asimo,

    “NOT HERO ACCORDING TO YOU..”

    Which part of my post said he’s a hero? I hate it when people put words in my mouth.

    Of course it’s the right for the government to cast him away, and it’s my right to say it’s a stupid decision for not letting him come back for something he did in the past.

    Which part of ‘in the past’ that I highlighted many times in my post and my comments to you that you don’t quite understand?

    Excuse me, it’s the government and people like you so fanatic with Chin Peng and his history. Hello, I’ve move on. It’s just a piece of history to me. While you guys are still harping and holding on to it like it was happened yesterday.

    Another one that doesn’t know how to use CAPS LOCK. Jeez.

    No one can change history, but one can change his/her views on history. Nagasaki and Hiroshima? Not relevant. It will never end if people keep attaching themselves to the historical baggage. So they don’t want to buy things from the Westerners. Same goes to some people would remember Japanese as cruel murderers in the past. But, is that true and relevant in the current context? Should the descendants of those suffered during Japanese occupation continue to harbor their parents, ancestors hatred against the Japanese?

    Please, don’t relate your own life account with others. You have historical baggage, fine. Live and die with it. I don’t have those and I want to move on. And you doesn’t represent majority anyway. So, although I sympathise and pity the poor widow in your story, I don’t think it’s relevant to the issue above.

    There are a lot of ways to pay respect to the security forces. Not like this.

    Majority? Let’s do a poll. Let us be transparent and request for a poll, referendum to be done on this issue. By the way, if 52 million people agree to a stupid decision, it’s still a stupid decision.

    What kind of leaders instill in the people they lead, hatred and animosity that never ends? Ceh! Good leaders my foot.

  12. asimo said

    his/her on VIEW……..yeahhh you can change it any point you want to change..

    But can you change peoples VIEW????TALK INFRONT OF KING…if you think you grandfather(Chin Peng) should stay in MALAYSIA…talk behalf Chin Peng…This is Not personal HISTORY….this is PEOPLE,TERRITORY,STATE,MALAYSIAN HISTORY???

    “So, although I sympathise and pity the poor widow in your story, I don’t think it’s relevant to the issue above.” Nagasaki and Hiroshima

    MY POINT IS SIMILARITY..yeahhh it will never end…till the end of life…history will remain been history…yeahhh You dont have those that why you know nothing cause you dont know…your heart is empty..

    “There are a lot of way to pay respect”

    What kind of respect you can pay them…The respect we must gave to them is SALUTE/RESPECT them,because of them we are here on this forum…..hehehehhehe….not the only living people you need to respect,dead people also you need to respect…dig up ur ancestor grave,tell them if them allowed chin peng live in malaysia..even Prime Minister not agreed.I can guarantee Chin Peng has no place in malaysia..

    “By the way, if 52 million people agree to a stupid decision, it’s still a stupid decision”

    Government will decide and will listen to 52 million than a few people….stupid decision..what decision is not stupid …your decision to letting chin peng live in malaysia?

    hahahahahahahahhahah…..i dont think so…hahahahhahahah..

    Barbie,

    Dont get mad anything related with Chin Peng,we will get fighting each other if we continue like this,as a man i will slow down but doesnt mean im surrender..im so sorry if i do wrong perception about you..sorry for that..

    What i want to say is not all people will like us,we can forgive but can’t forget that is the fact..sometimes to forgive some one gonna take a long time,sometimes it will never be forgotten rest of generation..it will continued…

    In summary, we are able to see and appreciate that construction liability is a complex issue. Finding a cause of a collapse of a building is never easy. For most of the time it will be a guessing game or a process of elimination. With so many parties involved in a constructions project, it will also be difficult to ascertain who is liable for what. With so many uncertainties and issues at hand, it is best for the Government to take pro-active steps to better regulate the construction industry. The developments in Singapore would be a good starting point for us to compare and emulate. The current existing laws that we have may not be adequate and may need to be improved on.
