Honestly, I don't really feel like writing this posting.
I have been spending the past four days mostly asleep as I am tired and mentally drained.
The MH370 tragedy has also taken its toll on me.
What makes me write the following was due to the realization that what I believe all these while about my fellow Malaysians were probably not true.
The attacks against Malaysia by the Chinese mainstream media and its social media practitioners over the MH370 tragedy have made me realize that there is a high degree of probability that the majority of Malaysian Chinese do not care much about this country.
Previously, I always believe that they do love this country despite all their complaints such as for not being as rich as Singaporeans, etc.
Now I am beginning to think I was wrong.
Well, if you have been monitoring the Chinese media the past weeks, you would realized that Malaysians, mostly of Chinese ethnicity who took part in forums on MH370 had in the majority joined their counterparts from China in bashing Malaysia and its government.
I tried to highlight some who put up a brave fight defending Malaysia, such as in these postings,
Message from a patriotic DAP supporter
Dear Chinese, regarding MH370 tragedy
But they were perhaps outnumbered by at least 20 to one.
These few brave Malaysian Chinese were mostly flamed out by their Malaysia-hating friends. They were totally bullied out by the Malaysia-haters who also include their fellow Malaysians.
For the Malaysian Malaysia-haters, it's just not fashionable to defend this country. Instead, running down their own country was deemed cool, it seems.
They seemed to forget that if you love your country, you would not join forces with those attacking it, especially in a time of crisis.
I know, some of them will come here and claim that they do love the country but just don't like the BN government and its handling of the MH370 crisis.
Well, to them I would say, whatever their excuses, if you are indeed loyal, you would not join forces with outsiders to thrash your own country.
ONLY TRAITORS DO THAT
Even if they were not happy because it's a BN government, the least they could do was not to support the foreigners who were spewing hatred against our country.
Now, let's say China decides to attack and invade Malaysia. I would like to know whether these Malaysian Chinese were willing to lay down their life defending this country.
Or would they give excuses such as,
"This government is corrupt and can't find the missing plane, so I am going to join the Chinese forces invading this country as it will mean toppling this useless Melayu-led government who have been oppressing us Chinese in this country and turned us into second class citizens as pointed out by our beloved Lim Guan Eng, the most handsome Chinese ever born."
I don't know.... Maybe I am exaggerating, but that seems to be the attitude among the majority of those Malaysians discussing the MH370 tragedy in the Chinese social media.
If I am wrong on this, do point out why I shouldn't ask this question about the loyalty of the Malaysian Chinese community as a whole.
Do think carefully first before you answer these questions,
Are you really loyal to this country?
If you do, then why did you all join those foreigners from China in running down your own country and bullied those among your Malaysian Chinese friends who tried to defend it?
