Wee's candidacy, sign of BN's full recovery

So, BN actually chose Wee Jeck Seng as its candidate for the Tanjung Piai by-election.

Honestly, I'm so glad with that decision.

Congratulations to the BN leadership for such a wise and far-sighted move.

Special salute to Johor BN chairman and Umno chief Hasni whom I believed as being the one who made that final decision and his boss Zahid, who allowed him to make the dicision.

I had explained my preference for Wee in this post on Sept 29,

In case you all are too lazy to click on that link and read it, here are its excerpts,

1. ...if the coalition fields an MCA candidate, then it would prove that the recently sealed Perpaduan Ummah pact with Pas was not meant to alienate the non-Malays....

2. It will send a strong message to the Chinese community, especially in Johor that DAP's accusations of BN over the years, especially about Umno being a racist party were not true.

3. Wee had done well there by previously winning against DAP Malay candidates in 2008 and 2013. The guy was well liked as he served his constituents diligently, irrespective of their race or religion.

4. ...despite other MCA candidates being massacred elsewhere, he was beaten by the late Dr Md Farik Md Rafik of Pribumi Bersatu by a razor thin margin of 524 votes.

5. ....Wee managed to get about 30 per cent of the votes from among the Chinese voters in the constituency, which was exceptional....

6, In Pekan Nanas, where the local Chinese community is concentrated, the MCA candidate managed to reduce the DAP's majority from 2,669 votes in 2013 to 1,308 while in Kukup where the Malays have the outright majority, the Umno candidate's majority of 6,946 votes in 2013 was reduced to merely 862.

7. ...most of the parliamentary constituencies in Johor are of the marginal type and BN will need all the Chinese votes that it could get in future elections in the state.

I believe that BN people in the Malay-majority Tanjung Piai will fully support Wee's candidacy.

This is what Tanjung Piai Umno division chief Jefri said about it,

That's the quality that we want from Umno leaders - selflessness.

I'm quite confident now with BN's chance to win in Tanjung Piai and I also believe that it will mark the start of its full recovery.

This time, everyone will see Pakatan as being the one banking on racial factor to win while BN represents the true multi-racial cooperation which has made Malaysia what it is today.

Workers protests at Forest City, only Chinese newspapers interested?

Saw this story by Nanyang yesterday,

You all can read it in full at

It happened on Friday.

I tried to find the story in the English and Bahasa Malaysia publications but can't find any.

So, let me give you all some details about it based on the Nanyang's report;

1. A group of construction workers made up of locals and Chinese nationals, gathered at Forest City, Johor in the morning of (25th Oct) Friday.

2. They were there  to demand for arrears of payment from the main contractor for renovation works carried out on a project.

3. The workers, who were employed by a sub-contractor hired by the main contractor engaged by Forest City have not been paid their salary.

 4. As their repeated request for payment went unheeded, the group decided to launch a protest. 

5. It was learnt that the sub-contractor had claimed that it has not been paid for three months for the work done by the main contractor, named by Nanyang as Lijie International Construction Development (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd.

6. The protesting workers were about to take out their banners when staff from the Forest City sales gallery, together with the company's security team stopped them.

7. Forest City in a short statement said the company had duly paid Lijie  in accordance with the contract and that the dispute was not directly related to the Forest City project or the developer.  

8. The statement also added it was sympathetic with the plight of the affected workers and will help them to resolve the matter.

9. A Labour Rights Service Station have been set up since beginning of the month to ensure swift coordination of such disputes, the Nanyang report says.

My questions ;

1. Is Forest City going to claim it is being “victimised” again or it just doesn’t know how to pick contractors of integrity, at least one that can manage sub-contractors payment on time? Or is there something else going on?

2. Why this kind of pay dispute drama involving the company which is managing Forest City keeps happening? The last previous two were on October 16 involving the Central Park project and on September 7 involving another project at Forest City. Both incidents were reported by the Chinese newspapers.

3. Who are actually these "main contractors" appointed by Forest City who kept failing to pay the sub-contractors causing workers not being paid their salaries? Are they Malaysians or from mainland China? What is their real connection with Forest City?

I hope the English and Bahasa Malaysia media, will take interest in this and find answers to those questions.

I'm not sure why they didn't report the story so far.

I talked with a Johor-based journalist friend working for one of the Chinese newspapers about it and this is what he said;

"It has happened so many times that probably the English and Bahasa Malaysia media have became accustomed to such workers protests at Forest City that they don't feel the need to report it.  Either that or they are still hoping to get advertisement money from the property giant, and therefore don’t cover such news."

Of course he said that in Chinese. I just translated it.

Well, I think the authorities should have a look into it.

After all, this is Malaysia Baru and that is Forest City which was a big issue in the run-up to GE14.

Remember this?

And here is a video of one of those workers protests,

Oh, please let it be Osman Sapian to contest Tanjung Piai

This is nice,

Ex-Johor MB Osman Sapian 

shortlisted for Tg Piai polls

I first saw it at NST but can't find the link, thus the The Sun link.

Well, I hope Osman will indeed get to be the Pakatan candidate.

Osman is now the Kempas state assemblyman, and if he becomes an MP, that would make him a true Johor super politician.

I can't remember the last time a Johor politician being an assemblyman and MP at the same time.

Khaled Nordin tried to do it at GE 14 but lost the Pasir Gudang parliament seat, Permas state seat....and as MB, lost the entire Johor. What a joke.

Well, maybe it's a Pakatan strategy after all.

While some may see it as Pakatan, in particular Pribumi Bersatu, running out of proper leaders to be fielded at the by-election, I see it as a brilliant move to show how strong the ruling coalition is at the moment.

First, they appointed Osman, who was not qualified at all as Johor MB, then sacked him from that post 11 months later and now field him as candidate in perhaps the most important by-election to test the people's support for the Pakatan government.

If Osman, who Pakatan itself considered as a failed MB, still wins the by-election, then it's a true evidence that the people, especially in Johor do not want BN anymore.

Pakatan must be damned confident of itself by making that move.

Brilliant, isn't it?


Okay, okay,  I'm kidding.

Actually I believe that Pakatan is going to get whacked in Tanjong Piai no matter whether they field Osman or anyone else.

Things are really bad for them down there in Johor.

Their state government has been sitting on its ass doing nothing.

Okay, sacking Osman was good but that doesn't count. It's their own stupidity from the beginning when they appointed him to the post.

I even warned them a day after GE14, remember?

Osman Sapian is the leading Johor MB candidate


You all tell me lah if there's anything significant that they have been doing so far in Johor other than fighting among themselves.

And the new MB, whatever his name is, is just a dum dum.

He's not much of an improvement than Osman.

Worst of all, the complaints of Johoreans during BN's Khaled Nordin administration are all still there.

They have done nothing about those complaints.

Remember this,

Really, what have they done about it?

The MO is still the same.

The state government is even still following what the Johor palace says, despite the rhetorics of their leaders and prominent bloggers about the Malay rulers.

Click on this for example,

Farewell Johor's Ramsar sites 

And Johoreans on the ground are not doing all that great too.

For instance, the recent lowering of ceiling property price which could be bought by foreigners from RM1 million to RM600,000. Johoreans will be most affected by it due to its proximity to Singapore.

Many of them may soon not be able to buy their own house and instead have to rent from Singaporeans, who own property in JB and surrounding areas.

With our weak ringgit, it's a cheap sale for Singaporeans. You all check la the price of a HDB unit and compare it to a RM600,000 house in JB.

By the way, how come the Johor government is not protesting this? I mean, for the interest of ordinary Johoreans.

I know la that they wanted to make some money too when the developers sell their units to Singaporeans but they tak kesian ke to especially Johoreans who voted for them in GE14.

Well, never mind. That's water under the bridge already.

Anyway, I don't really blame them as the previous BN's Khaled Nordin administration was quite bad, and I bitched about it quite a lot myself back then.

Now that they have a taste of how it is under this useless Pakatan government, I'm sure they know what to do about it.

I'll soon write about the next Johor state administration which I'm predicting will be headed by Datuk Hasni Mohammad.

I know the guy and I believe he is good.

Okay, maybe not as good as TS Abdul Ghani Othman, but he will definitely be better than the current and past Pakatan MB clowns.

He is also definitely better than Khaled Nordin.

Really, I'll write about it all soon.

Nice to be a minister, I guess

I don't know who is this with Syed Saddiq, but I think she is very pretty,

The picture is actually a screen grab of a video taken at Syed Saddiq's office.

Guess it's one of those perks of being a minister, that is getting to meet beautiful people.

Really nothing wrong with that, even if Syed Saddiq is to like her.

At least that should quell some not very nice rumours about him.

You know lah, Pakatan leaders got all sort of rumours....some even got videos some more.

Anyway, I have been lazy these past few days.

Not in the mood to write.

I looked at the issues that had been going around of late and felt that they were not worth commenting.

They were mostly nonsense which will not change Malaysia for the better.

For instance, Hishammuddin Hussein was said to be plotting to form a new government without DAP and Amanah.

That's a clear case of bullshit being stirred to break up the BN-Pas cooperation by sowing the seed of discord which hopefully will trigger in-fighting.

I was quite surprised that a top Pribumi Bersatu blogger even suggested for Hishammuddin and KJ to team up to lead Umno.

It's dumb and just a plain cheap shot hoping to cause leadership crisis within Umno which is making steady recovery progress.

And, of all people, Hishammuddin? That's stupid.

I hope Umno and its allies, along with Pas will stay the course and not be distracted by such nonsense.

And of course, they need to convince the people that they are now better than Pakatan and what they themselves used to be.


Okay, I need to get back to work now.

And I'll try not to be too lazy after this.

Some more on Budget 2020 - featuring Najib and KJ

I always said that I'm not an economic expert.

That's why I hardly commented on the 1MDB controversy.

It's really too complicated for me.

I don't like to write about things I'm not sure of.

That's unlike some people who claimed that they know about 1MDB just because they don't want to be called stupid.

Actually, these people were just parroting others whom I suspect were equally clueless about the issue.

They believe in what others said because it suits their political belief.

Well, never mind that. The 1MDB case is now in the court.

Lets wait until the judge delivers the verdict. Innocent until proven guilty, okay.

What I really want to highlight in this post however is some more facts about the Budget 2020.

As I said, I'm not an economic expert. So, lets hear it from those who know economics better than myself and then make our own conclusion.

This is one of them yesterday,

Say what you want about Najib, but what he said about the budget was factual.

Quite clear and easy to understand, even for someone like me.

Things are indeed not well with Malaysia under Pakatan.

Also, just look at the desperate monkeys who tried to interrupt Najib. Pathetic.

And here is also a good one by KJ the previous day,

IQOS, the alternative cigarette

An editor friend asked me to help him out a bit because his news portal is currently facing some technical difficulties.

Since he has been such a nice friend, I agreed.

He asked me to post a story about the anniversary of IQOS, that heat-not-burn alternative cigarette device, in Malaysia.

The device was meant to lessen the risk of smoking.

I have this device and I no longer smoke conventional cigarettes.

I wrote about it at this link,

It's really good.

Well, some may say why don't just quit altogether, but for me, it's important to give people an alternative. A better one.

Not everyone have the will power to just quit, okay.

I smoked Marlboro Light for so many years and I admit that I'm a nicotine addict.

I had previously tried many times to quit but they just simply didn't work.

But now, I managed to do that.

So, devices such as IQOS does help.

Some may say, it's still smoking, but really, it's less harmful.

Well, at least I don't suffer chronic sore throat anymore ever since I quit conventional cigarettes.

And I'm quite sure my nicotine intake now is much lesser than previously.

Who knows, maybe I will be able to quit altogether soon.

Anyway, this is the full press release that my friend forwarded to me,

Kuala Lumpur, 15 Oct 2019 : Philip Morris Malaysia Sdn Bhd (PMM), an affiliate of Philip Morris
International (PMI), is celebrating the first anniversary of its business transformation towards a
smoke-free future in Malaysia, since IQOS was launched in 2018. 

IQOS is PMI’s most advanced tobacco heating system that uses heat-not-burn technology.

To date more than 50,000 adult smokers in Malaysia have switched to using the IQOS device.

PMM, with its distribution and retail partner, has opened 28 IQOS Authorised Care Centres (IACC)
and six IQOS Care Corners throughout Malaysia. 

Adult consumers can get access to professional customer support in the IACCs in addition to purchasing the IQOS device and accessories. 

PMM strictly maintains that IQOS is not for youth, non-smokers, or former smokers. 

As such, all IACCs throughout Malaysia comply with PMI’s Good Conversion Practices and implement access restrictions for youth, and other verification and control measures before giving consumers information about IQOS.

"Our vision is to create a better alternative for adult smokers who would otherwise continue to

"Through disruptive thinking, robust science and years of R&D experience behind our
smoke-free platforms, we are confident that IQOS, PMI’s heat-not-burn technology, will bring us a
step closer to our vision of a smoke-free future,” said Kang Tae Koo, Managing Director of PMM.

“We hope among 5 million smokers here in Malaysia, the adult smokers would switch to better
alternatives which are scientifically proven to be less harmful than smoking cigarettes. 

"It is very important that men and women who would otherwise continue to smoke have access to
accurate information about alternatives to cigarettes in order to make informed choices.”

The IQOS device is designed to heat tobacco without burning, as a result it produces an average
reduction of 90% to 95% in the levels of Harmful and Potentially Harmful Chemicals (HPHCs) as
compared to conventional cigarettes, but it is not risk free. 

As such, the innovative IQOS system presents a better alternative to cigarette smoking. PMM remains committed to offering smokefree innovation and technology that will one day replace cigarettes with better alternatives for adult smokers who won’t quit.

PMI is leading a transformation in the tobacco industry to create a smoke-free future and
ultimately replace cigarettes with smoke-free products to the benefit of adult smokers who would
otherwise continue to smoke. 

To date, PMI has invested over USD6 billion on research and development to substantiate and manufacture smokeless alternatives such as the IQOS device.

The science behind this innovation and its harm reduction potential has been verified by a
growing number of independent studies conducted by renowned public health institutions. 

A total of 340 peer reviewed publications and 10 clinical studies have been conducted and the totality
of scientific evidence so far indicates that switching completely to IQOS that heats tobacco
without burning it, is less harmful than continuing to smoke cigarettes. 

As such, the innovative IQOS system presents a better alternative to cigarette smoking.

Approximately 8 million adult smokers around the world have completely stopped smoking
cigarettes and switched to IQOS, which is available for sale in 48 markets in key cities

Malaysia was the 44th market to commercialize IQOS.

Budget, should we believe the liars? (updated)

UPDATES 12:20 Oct 14

Lets listen to Mat Hassan


I watched Guan Eng's tabling of the Budget 2020 yesterday.

Honestly, I didn't notice anything spectacular.

And next year is supposed to be the year our country becomes a developed country. Vision 2020, remember?

Well, there's the obvious attempt to win back the support of Malay Muslims. A bit of allocations for bumiputera thingy, halal products, petani, nelayan etc here and there.

I guess the Umno-Pas alliance really shook them up quite a bit.

Guan Eng yesterday kept saying things are better now under Pakatan rule. Really?

He gave some figures and said inflation is down now and will continue to does so.

You all feel inflation is down meh?

Things are cheaper now?

Well, I don't think so.

Never mind.

Go ahead and be the judge yourself. Go to the market and buy stuff and be honest when you answer whether things are cheaper now.

I remember that back then when Najib gave out nice figures, people didn't want to believe him because they said what was said didn't tally with what's on the ground.

They should judge Guan Eng's figures the same way too.

This is especially so because Guan Eng and the other Pakatan leaders have been proven to be lying all the time.

Targeted fuel subsidy, does it really matter?

Price of fuel will definitely goes up next year.

Fuel goes up, so will others.

That so called targeted subsidy was a joke, if you ask me.

Remember this?

So many others like that lah.

They just know how to talk.

Doesn't really matter to them whether what they said is a lie or not.

So, my advice is, don't be too taken in by what Guan Eng tabled yesterday.

Most likely he was just bullshitting, as usual.

Later a Pakatan leader will probably say "Hey, a budget is not a bible. No need to do what was said."

Same with the election manifesto. Remember?

Lies, lies, lies.

Do we need to really listen to what liars said?

I don't think so.

For me it's easy.

I just ask myself, did my life gets better after these jokers took over the country?

I would not let them bullshit me.

Stop terror group LTTE in Malaysia

Guan Eng yesterday said

Our two reps innocent, no link to extremist activities

and because of that, today

Former IGP calls on police to ignore 

DAP over LTTE-linked assemblymen

Yes, I agree.

Police must ignore Guan Eng and the other DAP people on this.

I believe the police have investigated the case thoroughly before arresting the DAP assemblymen and the other suspects.

DAP assemblymen P Gunasekaren (left) and G Saminathan have been arrested for alleged links to LTTE.
After all, it took them almost a year to do that.

Surely police have videos and other hard evidence against the suspects who were at the LTTE function in Melaka last year.

It's almost impossible for the suspects not to later be charged in court.

See lah how....whether the DAP-oriented AG Tommy Thomas will allow those DAP assemblymen to be charged.

You all know lah these days....their gang always get their cases thrown out because the AG Chamber refused to either take them to court or continue with the prosecution of an ongoing case.

Like that Guan Eng's bunglow case and scores of others, especially those involving the Sedition Act.

There was even this one the other day,

AGC concedes defeat in another sedition case

Selective prosecution, if you ask me.

Same like that issuance of MACC's 1MDB compound earlier this week.

Well, they have the power, like that lah.

Anyway, I still think our police should be congratulated for taking a firm action against these people who were clearly trying to glorify and possibly revive LTTE which was crushed by the Sri Lankan armed forces a decade ago.

It's as dangerous as any other terror groups which the police have cracked down upon such as Islamic State.

LTTE was categorised as a terrorist group by Malaysia in 2014. I believe it was because the government at that time had discovered attempts to revive the terror group in this country after its defeat in Sri Lanka in 2009.

Even if the AG later on refuses to take the LTTE case to court because DAP people were involved, I hope the police will continue to crack down on them.

We can't let this country become a base for terror groups like LTTE.

When mainstream media's slide became a free fall


Utusan Melayu ceases operations

Ironically, that oldest Malay-language newspaper group died just a few days after the leading Malay-based party in government, Pribumi Bersatu had its

Kongress Maruah Melayu

So much for Malay dignity, I told myself.

Well, I deeply sympathise with the Utusan staff who lost their job.

I once lost my job too and therefore I could understand how they must be feeling right now.

I hope they will immediately get a new job so that they don't suffer too much.

What actually went wrong?

Of course, Pakatan people and the media which sided with them blamed Umno which for a long time controlled Utusan.

Well, to a certain degree, I do agree with them as I believe that the media should not be controlled by political parties.

Umno is indeed guilty on that count.

But then again, there are those who used to exploit Utusan who are now with Pakatan.

Many of them used to be top Umno leaders who gave instructions to Utusan editors and journalists on what were to be published by the newspaper.

They are indeed responsible for what happened to Utusan due to what they did when they were with Umno.

For instance, those who are old enough may remember how Anwar, as the deputy president of Umno controlled the media, especially Utusan which at that time was more or less reduced to be the party's mouthpiece.

Then there are also former media bosses and journalists with Pakatan now who used to earn big salaries and get Datukship and Tan Sri titles while they were with Utusan and other media outlets.

They got all that by doing the biddings of their political masters who were with Umno at that time.

Some of them now blame what happened to Utusan and the once Umno-controlled media on their successors there, but I'm sure they know, and we also know that's not true.

The rot started during their time, okay.

When the internet era started, one of them even famously said it was just a fad and then refused to develop the online version of the newspapers that he controlled.

And the "jilat" culture at the so-called mainstream media continued.

That was around the Anwar's Reformasi time in the late 1990s.

It was the time when the slide of the mainstream media which I believe actually started with Operasi Lalang in 1987 became a free fall.

But yeah, never mind all that, just blame Umno, as that's the most convenient way to gain political mileage out of what happened to Utusan.

By the way, Umno now has its accounts frozen by the Pakatan government, so that it can't help Utusan this time as it did over the past years.

I'm quite sure they would have tried to do something at least to help the Utusan people if not for that.

Anyway, the media outlets which all these while have been supporting Pakatan and were enemies of Utusan and Umno gleefully reported the newspaper's demise.

They among others told stories about angry Utusan staff condemning their cowardly bosses who shied away from facing them.

True stories, of course.

It's a story of soldiers being angry with their incompetent officers after they lost the war.

The fact however remains that they lost and being on the losing side, they have to suffer the consequences.

Officers, soldiers....doesn't matter, they are in the same boat.

If you ask me, I think the Utusan staff shouldn't be too angry. Instead, they should prepare themselves for the future.

In fact, they should have done that right after BN lost GE14. They should know what's coming their way.

Surely they know that the newspaper was not making money for quite a while and had to depend a lot on Umno to survive.

Once Umno is no longer in power, they should know that it can't help them survive anymore.

Another irony of this whole thing is that, I know quite a number of those Utusan staff who lost their job yesterday are actually not really supportive of Umno and BN.

That's just too bad for them.

Well, who is next? NST, Berita Harian, Harian Metro?

Hopefully not.

Dr Mahathir switching sides?

Last week I wrote that I don't support the

Kongress Maruah Melayu

That's because I believe in

I'm against its planned resolutions which include the closing down of Chinese schools.

I also wrote that I don't think Umno and Pas would be involved in the event.

Despite it being touted as organised by public universities, the event actually belongs to Dr Mahathir's Pribumi Bersatu.

Umno and Pas had previously vowed not to have anything to do with Pribumi Bersatu and other parties aligned to DAP in Pakatan Harapan.

Yesterday, however, it was confirmed that Umno and Pas will take part in the event.

So, what is actually happening?

My take is that Dr Mahathir's people had probably approached the Umno and Pas leadership and convinced them that their side also wanted to be part of the Perpaduan Ummah thing.

I believe they could have told the Umno and Pas people that they were also fed up with being an ally of DAP which is trying to push its Malaysian Malaysia agenda from their seat of power in Putrajaya.

They probably had said that DAP is backing Anwar to push Dr Mahathir out of the PM office because once the guy is in power he would repay the support by giving in to that agenda.

Do note that Anwar had not been invited to the event. I also have yet to see any news about DAP's lackeys in Amanah being invited.

Dr Mahathir's people must have been very convincing about all these when they talked with the Umno and Pas leaders.

If this speculation of mine is right, this could be the end of Pakatan Harapan, and we Malaysians are set for another political roller coaster ride.

We may even have a snap general election as early as next year.

Anyway, I'm still not supportive of this event on Sunday for reasons that I wrote in my previous post.

I still believe in a moderate multi-racial Malaysia.

I believe the Umno-Pas' Perpaduan Ummah thing is good enough for that.

Umno candidate likely for Tanjung Piai

Someone from Johor told me last night that BN is almost certain to field an Umno candidate for the Tanjung Piai by-election.

The guy who is well connected to the Johor Umno establishment said the leading candidate is Tanjung Piai Umno division chief Jefridin Atan.

I'm not sure where he got his information from but he also claimed that the matter had already been decided by the Umno leadership.

Well, whatever.

I had stated my preference here,

But if Umno people insist on contesting the seat, then that's up to them.

Actually, I don't blame them.

After all, despite the constituency used to be an MCA stronghold, its Malay majority there stood at 57 per cent.

It's about the same as Cameron Highlands which BN won a few months ago after MIC gave way to a BN's Orang Asli candidate.

I don't think Pakatan can even accuse BN of playing the racial card on this one.

Tanjung Piai parliamentary constituency was set up as part of the re-delineation process in 2003, just before the 2004 general election.

It was originally a DAP versus MCA venue.

However, it was DAP which fielded a Malay candidate first in 2008 and then in 2013, hoping to sway the Malay majority there to vote for them. It didn't work.

In the last general election, Pakatan fielded a Pribumi Bersatu candidate there, a Malay from a Malay-based party against BN's MCA candidate.

They won. As I argued in my previous post, it's the Malays who gave the Pakatan candidate his victory.

Now it looks like BN may respond to that by fielding an Umno candidate this time.

I think even MCA understand this move was necessary.

Well, I 'm still hoping for an MCA candidate to be fielded there for reasons which I stated in my previous post, but if Umno insist on fielding theirs, then so be it.

If BN wins, then Umno will increase their parliament seats by one,.....but that's about it.

However if the Umno candidate lose, even though the risk is not much, it will be a big blow to BN and its allies.

Well, bear in mind that MCA's Wee Jeck Seng won over 30 per cent of the Chinese votes there last year, which is a lot considering the circumstances at that time. I don't think the Umno candidate will get that for BN this time.

So, BN need to make sure that at least 80 per cent of the Malays who made up the 57 per cent voters in Tanjung Piai are on their side.

Achievable under the present political climate, but the risk is still there.

See lah how it turns out.

China celebrates 70 years of communism

That was yesterday.

They said it's for the motherland, but actually it's for totalitarian communism.

Well, never mind that. At least in Malaysia they have democracy and freedom.

Meanwhile in Hong Kong yesterday,

Police shoot teen protester as Hong Kong violence escalates

Why are they fighting China? Because they don't want to end up like these people of Xinjiang.
