2 Why Chinese Do Not Trust Anwar?


Chinese is said as a race that is practical, not emotional in living their lives, For them, practicality is seen from the angle of economical gain within long period of time. They are patient, hardworking and always focused in working towards their dreams.

In Deciding on which government should rule the country is also decided by the same way by Chinese. They would move as a group so that their race would gain maximum benefit.

Barisan Nasional has been the best choice among Chinese for a very long time because they are convinced that the party could provide the best surrounding and landscape for them to develop. Even though there are a few Chinese extremists who tried to mock BN's capabilities and that they would tell other Chinese to hate BN by raising issues such as Bumiputera rights, no one in this world could deny the fact that Malaysian Chinese are among the ones who never really have as much conflicts as other Chinese in the world, under the rule of BN.

Chinese schools, which was then opened as preparation for Chinese to go back to their homeland after gaining profit in this country. But, majority of them decided to stay here, to become loyal citizens because they knew that Perikatan party back then, BN today, would always support them.

But, the support among Chinese towards BN is inclining these days where BN simply could not do anything to restore the issue.

However, this does not mean that they are supporting Pakatan Rakyat. Perhaps they made the wrong decision in 2008 because they fell for empty promises made by Anwar Ibrahim and probably other factors, but like what has been mentioned above, the Chinese do not function emotionally, but they run on practicality.

Recently, Anwar has been getting negative responses by the Chinese when he raised the idea to abolish PTPTN which would harm students, including Chinese students which majority of them chooses to go to private universities which are very expensive.

Then, Anwar once again 'screwed' the Chinese when he decided to 'take over' Bersih 3.0 Assembly and showing his true colors as a rebel who loves chaos. Obviously, Chinese do not want chaos because that would ruin their business.

So, these two incidents are the starting point for Chinese to look back in history in justifying who should they vote this time around. History never lies and it had shown who Anwar really is. After reading the history on Anwar, many Chinese youth have realized that they should live in reality and not keep on hoping that Pakatan Rakyat would provide them the equality that they want.

Anwar Ibrahim is a man with various personalities, if not, he would not be described as a 'charmeleon' by wetern medias. According to a book, The ‘I’ Files, at one time, Anwar was a fanatic Muslim who wanted to build 'the perfect' Islamic nation such as Iran. But for Anwarm Chinese are threat to Islam. It went up to a point where there writer of the book, Hasan Ali was unable to beat Anwar's 'dreams' back then!

The reveal can be proven with Anwar's attitude and actions when he was the Minister of Education back in 1986-1990. He began to appoint School Principles who has no Chinese education background at all in Chinese schools. Anwar also has never defended Chinese schools and he is the person who was really active in bringing the spirit of nationalism like Indonesia where racial identities are vanished to form a single race.

Only in 1996, BN amended Education Act 1961 Section 21(2) to withdraw the authority of the Minister of Education to change the status of Chinese schools to regular sekolah kebangsaan after getting objections from DAP and Dong Jiao Zong.

Other than Anwar's stand on the status of Malaysian Chinese which is unpredictable because it changes from time to time, depending on the politics and his self interest, the Chinese also thinks that Anwar might not be qualified enough to run the economy.

When Anwar became the Finance Minister, right at the time where he was a few years away from being sacked, 1997/98, the country had a terrible economic attack. Anwar's ability as Finance Minister was challenged, and he failed, terribly.

Running out of ideas, Anwar took and easy way out, following whatever IMF said. The interest on loan that is known as was drastically raised had caused trouble to businesses as they fail to pay back all the loans and banks were burdened with ‘Non-Performing-Loan’ (NPL). The effect of that, Malaysian economy almost came to a halt when businesses came to a close, banks suffering tons of losses and people losing their jobs that people could not afford to buy things.

Malaysia was lucky as the country was saved by Y.Bhg. Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad who took an unpopular measure and took every single insult to save the country which was almost bankrupt. His actions had brought BN to a huge success during the 1999GE when Chinese put their hopes to Barisan Nasional, moving away from the opposition, Barisan Alternatif which was led by Anwar Ibrahim.

Thus, we believe that the Chinese are wise enough to learn from history and that they are not easily influenced by emotions due to messages spread by extremists, chauvinist, racist and those who have their own personal interest. All these while, this country managed to stood up high because of the Constitution which also considered the balance of economic structure among races in Malaysia and not just about equality for everyone.

Such formula is the key for the harmony, strength and peace of the country. So, every race should protect the constitution so that the country would continuously develop.

At the same time, we did see how everything that Anwar said is just mere illusion, dream and fantasy of a man that is crazy for power. There is a huge probability that Anwar do not know himself.

That is why the best move for rakyat is BN where everything is moderate and consistent with their stand.

Kaum Cina, dikatakan kaum yang praktikal dan bukan emosional dalam menentukan matlamat hidup mereka. Praktikaliti bagi mereka, dinilai dari sudut keuntungan ekonomi dalam jangka masa panjang. Mereka sabar, tekun dan kekal fokus untuk mencapai apa yang diidamkan.

Dalam menentukan kerajaan yang memerintah juga, kaum Cina mengambil sikap yang sama dan bergerak sebagai satu kumpulan bagi memastikan keuntungan maksima kepada kaum mereka.

Barisan Nasional telah menjadi pilihan kaum Cina sejak sekian lama kerana mereka yakin bahawa parti ini mampu menyediakan persekitaran dan lanskap yang sesuai untuk mereka ‘berkembang’. Walaupun terdapat puak-puak ekstremis Cina yang cuba menafikan keupayaan BN serta menghasut kaum Cina agar berprasangka, malah membenci BN dengan membangkitkan soal Hak-hak Istimewa Bumiputera tetapi tiada seorang pun manusia di dunia ini yang mampu menolak hakikat bahawa kaum Cina di Malaysia adalah antara yang paling makmur sekali di dunia di bawah pemerintahan BN.

Sekolah-sekolah Cina, dahulunya dibuka sebagai persediaan untuk kaum Cina kembali ke tanahair mereka selepas puas mencari kekayaan di negara ini. Namun, majoriti kaum Cina terus kekal di sini, menjadi warganegara yang setia kerana mereka tahu kerajaan Perikatan ketika itu, dan BN hari ini, akan tetap membela mereka.

Namun begitu, sokongan kaum Cina terhadap BN hari ini dikatakan merosot secara drastik dan apa saja yang dilakukan oleh BN tidak akan mampu lagi untuk memulihkan keadaan ini.

Walaubagaimanapun, ini tidak bermakna yang mereka menyokong Pakatan Rakyat. Mungkin mereka tersasar sekejap pada tahun 2008 akibat terpedaya dengan janji-janji manis Anwar Ibrahim dan faktor-faktor lain, tetapi seperti yang dikatakan tadi, kaum Cina bukan bertindak berdasarkan emosi, tetapi praktikaliti.

Akhir-akhir ini, Anwar mula dipandang serong oleh kaum Cina apabila beliau membangkitkan idea untuk menghapuskan PTPTN yang mana akan merugikan para pelajar, termasuk anak-anak bangsa Cina yang majoritinya memilih pusat pengajian tinggi swasta yang jauh lebih mahal harganya.

Kemudian, Anwar sekali lagi menggusarkan kaum Cina apabila bertindak ‘mengambil alih’ perhimpunan BERSIH 3.0 dan menonjolkan warna sebenarnya sebagai seorang pemberontak yang ingin membuat huru-hara. Sudah tentu kaum Cina tidak inginkan huru-hara kerana ia akan bermakna kerugian bagi perniagaan mereka.

Maka, dua insiden ini menjadi titik penting untuk kaum Cina kembali mengimbas sejarah lama dalam menjustifikasi undi mereka dalam pilihanraya kali ini. Ternyata sejarah tidak pernah berbohong dan sejarah telah memaparkan siapa Anwar yang sebenarnya. Setelah membaca sejarah Anwar ramai anak-anak muda Cina kembali berpijak di bumi nyata dari terus bermimpi diperintah oleh Pakatan Rakyat yang kononnya bakal memberi mereka kesamarataan total bagi membolehkan mereka berkembang ke tahap maksima dan menelan kaum-kaum lain di Malaysia.

Anwar Ibrahim adalah manusia dengan begitu banyak personaliti jika tidak, takkanlah beliau digelar ‘sesumpah’ oleh wartawan barat. Mengikut pendedahan buku The ‘I’ Files, pada satu masa, Anwar adalah seorang Muslim fanatik yang mengimpikan negara Islam ‘sempurna’ ala Iran, berkiblatkan Saudi, berfahaman Wahhabi dan tiada tolak ansur dalam menangani kemungkaran. Bagi Anwar, kaum Cina dan barat semuanya adalah ancaman kepada Islam. Sehinggakan, kata penulis buku tersebut, Hasan Ali juga tidak dapat menyaingi ‘mimpi’ Anwar pada waktu itu!

Pendedahan ini boleh dibuktikan dengan sikap dan tindakan yang diambil oleh Anwar ketika menjadi Menteri Pendidikan pada tahun 1986-1990. Beliau mula melantik Guru Besar yang tiada latarbelakang pendidikan Cina di sekolah-sekolah jenis kebangsaan Cina. Anwar juga tidak pernah membela sekolah Cina malah beliaulah yang begitu giat membawa semangat nasionalis sepertimana Indonesia di mana identiti kaum-kaum lain dihapuskan sama sekali bagi membentuk sebuah bangsa yang bersatu padu. Hanya pada tahun 1996, kerajaan BN telah meminda Akta Pendidikan 1961 seksyen 21 (2) untuk menarik balik kuasa Menteri Pendidikan menukar kedudukan sekolah Cina kepada sekolah kebangsaan selepas bantahan DAP dan Dong Jiao Zong.

Selain pendirian Anwar mengenai kedudukan kaum Cina di Malaysia yang sukar dijangka kerana asyik berubah-ubah mengikut keadaan politik semasa dan kepentingan peribadinya, Anwar juga dikhuatiri oleh kaum Cina sebagai tidak mempunyai kelayakan dan kebolehan untuk mentadbir ekonomi.

Ketika Anwar menjadi Menteri Kewangan, dan kebetulannya pada tahun-tahun akhir sebelum dipecat iaitu 1997/98, negara telah mengalami serangan ekonomi yang buruk. Kebolehan Anwar sebagai Menteri Kewangan telah teruji dan ternyata Anwar gagal sama sekali.

Dalam kebuntuan, Anwar telah mengambil keputusan yang mudah tetapi salah, iaitu menurut sahaja telunjuk IMF. Kadar faedah pinjaman dinaikkan secara drastik menyebabkan perniagaan tidak mampu membayar pinjaman dan bank-bank pula terbeban dengan ‘Non-Performing-Loan’ (NPL). Akibatnya, ekonomi Malaysia hampir lumpuh sepenuhnya apabila perniagaan ditutup, bank-bank pula mengalami kerugian dan pengangguran meningkat sehingga menyekat kadar dayabeli rakyat.

Malaysia bertuah kerana diselamatkan oleh kebijaksanaan Perdana Menteri ketika itu, iaitu Y.Bhg. Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad yang berani mengambil langkah tidak popular dan menelan segala kritikan demi menyelamatkan negara yang hampir bankrap. Tindakan ini menyebabkan BN berjaya memenangi PRU 1999 apabila kaum Cina menaruh keyakinan dan kepercayaan kepada kepimpinan Barisan Nasional sekali gus menjauhkan mereka dari pembangkang pada ketika itu, Barisan Alternatif yang diterajui oleh Anwar Ibrahim.

Justeru, kita percaya kaum Cina cukup bijak untuk belajar dari sejarah dan tidak mudah terpengaruh oleh emosi yang kurang tenteram akibat dihasut oleh puak ekstremis, chauvinis, rasis dan pentingkan diri sendiri. Selama ini, negara ini berdiri teguh atas kerjasama semua kaum. Dan kerjasama ini menjadi teguh kerana wujudnya perlembagaan yang mengambil kira keadilan mengikut struktur ekonomi dan sosial kaum-kaum di Malaysia dan bukannya kesamarataan secara buta tuli.

Formula di dalam perlembagaan inilah yang menjadi kunci keamanan, keteguhan dan kemakmuran negara ini. Maka semua kaum wajar terus menjulang perlembagaan negara bagi memastikan apa yang dikecapi hari ini akan terus bercambah dan kukuh selama-lamanya.

Di masa yanga sama, kita melihat apa yang dimomokkan oleh Anwar hanyalah ilusi, mimpi dan fantasi seorang manusia yang gila kuasa. Kemungkinan besar Anwar sendiri tidak tahu apa yang diperkatakan dan dijanjikannya kerana kemungkinan besar Anwar sendiri tidak kenal lagi siapa dirinya iaitu sama ada beliau seorang fanatik, ektremis, liberal ataupun plural.

Oleh itu, jalan terbaik bagi rakyat ialah memilih kepimpinan BN yang ‘moderate’ dan kekal konsisten dengan prinsip dan pendirian ini.
