There is this statement by Gerakan acting president Datuk Chang Ko Youn yesterday -
"We feel that all (BN) component parties should go for the non-racial line, as the merging of these parties including those in Sabah and Sarawak will be able to give a new image to BN in order to win back public support and ensuring unity among party members."

Gerakan proposes BN components merge to form one party
Okay, Datuk Chang, personally, I think you are so full of crap.
If you want to shut down your own non-performing party, you should just shut it down.
Don't drag other people into it.
Let's not bullshit people by saying that Malaysians are not voting along racial line. I'm sick and tired of hearing that.
If Chang thinks that there were not enough people voting for BN because its component parties are race based, then why does Gerakan, who supposedly a multi-racial party did very badly too.
As we all know, Gerakan is of the same template as DAP, a Chinese-based party masquerading as a multi-racial party.
So, how come DAP is doing very well while Gerakan is three quarter dead?
The answer is easy, DAP is seen by the Chinese community as more Chinese than Gerakan.
In fact, DAP is seen by the Chinese community as even more Chinese than the openly Chinese-based MCA.
The key to DAP's success in GE13 is their persistence over the years in drumming into the brain of the Chinese in this country that they are the savior of their community and will be the one who will replace the evil Malay-led BN government.
Such was the DAP's grip on the Chinese community's conscience that the overwhelming majority of Chinese, young and old rather voted for the obviously amoral PKR leaders and religious zealots of Pas. They believe that as long as they don't vote BN, their DAP heroes will come to power.
DAP's big win in GE13 got nothing to do with them being multi-racial. It is instead because of them being Chinese, plain and simple.
All these talks about youths these days not caring about their race are crap. I think every decent and honorable young Chinese school graduates would admit that they agree with me. You really think those young Chinese guys don't care about their race?
Remember Gelang Patah? What do you think the reason why over 90 per cent of the Chinese there voted for Lim Kit Siang who had done nothing and probably will do nothing for them in future? Why do you think they rejected their "old friend" Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman who had served them so well for 18 years as their menteri besar?
IT"S BECAUSE TO THEM, KIT SIANG IS A CHINESE HERO WHILE GHANI IS JUST A MALAY.
Got it or not?
I had attended several Gerakan functions in the past and observed how they savaged their Umno allies in their speeches.
Now, they have the cheek to call for Umno and the others in BN to be dissolved and then merge with them after they themselves only managed to win one parliament and three state seats.
Aiseh Datuk Chan, you tak ada malu ka?
You and your Gerakan want to dissolve, you all dissolve la. Don't disturb other people, ok?
