The media is playing into Nga Kor Ming’s hands

TTF: This is not the first time Nga Kor Ming insulted Dato’ Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir (see news item below). On the 9th of September 2011, the DAP leader referred to Zambry as Metalic Black, a term many believed was an allusion to the Menteri Besar’s skin tone.

When met at private functions, Nga denied that his remark was directed at Zambry. However, on the 30th of November 2011, the Pantai Remis rep publically apologized to the Menteri Besar for uttering the slur.

Now, Zambry could easily have acted pursuant to law against Nga but didn’t. Instead, he was kind enough to let the matter rest and made no mention of it in the years after. But Nga doesn’t seem to have gathered any inspiration from the Menteri Besar and seems bent on insulting him further.

Tell me, do you have any idea what the strategy is here?

The strategy is to impress upon the Chinese that DAP leaders have what it takes to stand up against UMNO. By insulting Zambry with off-the-wall remarks, Nga is seeking media coverage to score cheap publicity points against the MCA.

Yes, it’s nothing but a sick game of perception that the mainstream media has failed to recognise.

IPOH: Perak DAP chairman Nga Kor Ming’s act of hurling abusive remarks against Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir in his speech at Kampung Simee, here, last week, has set a negative example for the country’s youth, according to Perak Barisan Nasional Back Benchers Club (BNBBC) chairman Datuk Mohd Khusairi Abdul Talib.

He said a ‘senior’ politician like Nga should set a good example, instead of making abusive comments as a culture in politics.

“What if the younger generation wished to venture into politics and saw such attitude, they would be discouraged,” he told reporters on the sidelines of the Third Meeting of the Fifth Session of the 13th State Assembly here, today.

Meanwhile, Mohd Khusairi, who is also Slim River assemblyman, called on the police to take firm action against Nga for making a false report and denying his actions, even though it had been clearly recorded.

“Nga’s claim that the video had been edited also seems irrelevant, since the 30-minute video clearly shows that he hurled abusive words,” he said.

On Tuesday (Nov 21), Nga, who is Taiping MP, lodged a police report at the Ipoh District Police Headquarters here requesting the authorities to investigate the truth into allegations that he had hurled racial slurs against Zambry.

The Kepayang assemblyman also claimed that the video recording had been edited and modified to give rise to racial tension.
