My mother sent me this text message yesterday,
"May, I think ur latest posting is a little bit extreme."
(Note: May is my Chinese name used by my mother. Annie is actually just my nickname among friends. My father is the only one who calls me by my Malay name)
My mother was referring to my question,
Malaysian Chinese, were you all loyal to this country?
I told my mother that I asked that question primarily because I was angry that a friend of mine was bullied in the Chinese social media for defending Malaysia over the MH370 tragedy.
My friend was the one I highlighted here,
Message from a patriotic DAP supporter
and the one who wrote this,
Dear Chinese, regarding MH370 tragedy
As I had put it in those postings, my Malaysian patriot friend is a Chinese who was educated in the Chinese school system all the way to a university in Taiwan.
To top it all, my friend is a DAP supporter.
But that did not stop my friend from defending this country and its government when they came under attack by those foreigners from China.
It was a painful experience, my friend told me.
The most hurtful were when fellow Malaysians turned against my friend in support of the Malaysia-hating foreigners.
I understand how my friend must had felt, and that's why I believe that all those "Semua Cina balk Tongsan" calls by the Malay extremists were stupid.
You cannot chase away my friend as I will stand in your way.
As I had put it in those past postings, my friend is more a patriot than a lot of Malays who claim themselves to be patriots. Myself included.
Having said that in defense of my friend, I think the excuses given by those who sided with the Chinese bastards from China who thrashed our country in their social media were lame.
Malaysian Chinese had the right to thrash Malaysia and its government because they were discriminated and oppressed, you said?
What a load of crap that one was.
I took this picture of Malaysian Chinese from a pro-Pakatan blog which as usual claimed itself to be neutral.
Well, they don't look very oppressed to me. In fact they look very well off and happy.
How not to be happy when your community was the most advanced and prosperous in this multi-racial country despite being a minority.
Guess the evil Melayu Umno people didn't oppress them properly enough.
Anyway, that question of mine about loyalty to the country has at the point of me writing this received over 200 comments and generated almost 7,000 page views. About three times more than the daily average.
Hopefully, those who read them learned something about how it should be when it comes to loyalty to this country.
I know, the comments were not very healthy, but I believe we may learn something from reading them too.
It's like looking into a mirror and discovering for ourselves, how ugly we actually were.
Maybe we need a massive plastic surgery.
Remove all the ugly parts altogether.
I will write about that later.
For now, I am going to the beach again. Hopefully it will not rain today.
You all have a good Sunday, ya.
