Thursdays with Rabun...(Part 2)

“Hey Rabun, do you consider me a racist pengkhianat pendatang ah?” I asked my friend point blank.

“You are eh, ah...er, no la. You can speak Malay, ok la. It's only those who refuse to learn Malay, send their children to Chinese schools. Those are the racists! They love the Chinese national language more that the Malaysian national language!”

“But Rabun, I send my kid to Chinese schools what? According to that blog, that qualifies me as a racist pengkhianat pendatang! How about the dozens of Indian and Malay children studying in the same Chinese school as my kids? All of the racist pengkhianat pendatang also ka – including the Malays?”

Rabun was quiet for a moment. Suddenly the picture he was convinced to see as reality at the blog didn't seem so close to the reality on earth. But Rabun's introspection didn't last long. He burst out again:

“YES! They are all pengkhianat! They are Malays and they should be sending their children to study at Malay schools, not at some pendatang language ghetto!”

I tried to appeal to Rabun's sense of logic: “Ok...then what about all our pseudo-bangsawan Ministers and politicians who send their kids to study at private institutes whose teaching medium is English? How pengkhianat are they?”

Rabun's eyes rolled up to his left side for a moment. Then his face lit up as if he had found the answer to one of life's greatest mysteries.

“No, no, no, no! You can't say like that – all the proletariat riff raff in national schools will corrupt these elite children or they may be kidnapped! You know our BN politicians are not very well paid and they don't take a single sen in corruption! Where got money to pay the kidnapper's ransom like that?”

“Besides,” continued Rabun as he speared a piece of nasi impit and soaked it in the peanut sauce, “English is a very important language – if they don't study in Malay schools, it's because they are being prepared to be the next generation of elite leaders!”

Rabun pushed the nasi impit into his mouth, smacking his lips and looking pretty satisfied with himself. He had the particular glint in his eye that I noted in all those GinjalKeras fanatics who pride themselves for somehow managing to wrangle together some convoluted argument to try to shoo away the inconvenient facts facing them and imagining the jaguh kampung from DemiNegara patting them on the back.

But like I said, Rabun is my friend. And I would not be doing him any favours by allowing him to continue being deceived and led around by the nose like a sleepy kerbau by self-aggrandizing wannabes with a sinister agenda. So I pressed on:

“Rabun, do you know that Mandarin is the language with the most number of speakers in the world?”

Rabun smiled...Obviously he had another pat answer from the DemiNegara BTN Bible.

“Of course I know! You pendatang always think we're stupid just because we're Malay! Mandarin may be the most spoken language in the world. But that's only because China has the largest population in the world - English is the most WIDELY spoken language in the world!”

“No Rabun, I don't think you're stupid because you're Malay. I just think you're stupid to put your trust in those narrow-minded bigots prancing and preening at DemiNegara whose arguments have as much substance and eloquence as a wet fart from a diarrheal arse – they are noisy, full of shit and hot air, and they stink.”

Rabun was turning red in the face again, but I quickly offered him several sticks of satay and continued as he munched intently.

“OK let's look at KerangBasi's argument that only in Malaysia are the pendatangs allowed to demand all sorts of rights to education that no other country in the world would give a second thought to. He exerts that the pendatang here have it good because of the pribumi's tolerance which is quickly coming to an end. He argues that overseas, the pendatangs would be quickly assimilated or forever be ostracised.”

Rabun grinned and said, “That's the facts! You can't argue with it! Look at the US – do you see any of the pendatangs there speaking their pendatang languages ar practising their pendatang cultures? NO! All their schools teach in the American language and the pendatangs have to assimilate or buzz off!”

It was time to give Rabun a reality check:

“Do you know that in the US, they are slowly but surely introducing Mandarin language classes into the official school system? Now there are even some US schools teaching in both English and Mandarin language mediums already. In fact, while we're still pissing around about PPSMI here in Malaysia, some schools in the US are teaching science & maths in MANDARIN!”

Rabun blinked. Obviously he had no clue of these happenings in the world. The fascist lies that had been shoehorned into his psyche from the DemiNegara cesspool of ideas were beginning to crack. I pressed on with the undisputable facts:

“All over the world – from the US to Canada to the UK to Australia – Mandarin language classes and Mandarin medium schools are the fastest growing education choice, both privately and officially! That's mainly because their educators recognise China as the next economic giant and they want to prepare their country's children to be able to deal effectively with the Chinese in the future.”

Rabun was quick to retort: “Are you saying that Chinese is superior to Malay?!”

“On the contrary, my dear friend, I am merely producing evidence to prove that BilangLast is either lying or completely ignorant about education issues, even though he fancies himself as an authority on education issues worldwide. His arrogance borne of blissful ignorance is most amply demonstrated by his laughably self-glorifying committee effort - the fascist Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua proposal. Thank God only 2000+ netizens were duped to believing his nonsense despite all the jaguh-jaguh kampung's posturing and chest-thumping!”

Rabun was livid at that! “Now you've proven yourself to be a racist pendatang! What's wrong with having one school system to integrate all our nation's children?”

Oops! Clearly, Rabun was one of the duped who had signed the online petition! I should have been more careful with my words. I quickly waved a waiter over and ordered an ais bandung for my friend to cool him down. That gave me some time to gather my thoughts too.

“Well, Rabun,” I began, “there's nothing wrong with having a single official school system. I've even written in support of establishing a single Malaysian schools system. But KurangBernas' version is based on his fascist idea that education is all about putting the pendatangs in their proper place, exerting the superiority of the Malay language and culture above the pendatangs, creating a Melayu Celup out of the pendatangs so that they look and sound more acceptable to his brand of bigotry.”

“As well they should, seeing that they are pendatang to the Tanah Melayu! Is there any other nation in the world that allows their pendatang to continue practising their pendatang culture?” retorted Rabun stubbornly.

Actually all the nations that are used in DemiNegara as examples of assimilated pendatang like the US, UK and Australia are nations that actually strive to encourage and celebrate diversity. Of course, KurapKhas would conveniently choose to ignore those facts and attempt to pass fractions of truths as facts that support the BTN gospel he so fervently preaches.

But I didn't want to distract from the point I was trying to make so I merely ignored his outburst and continued:

“My version of a unified a school system is based on allowing diversity to flourish as long as they are privately funded. You have to understand, education is not about political indoctrination. It should be about preparing our children to face the world. Parents should be given the choice of what they think is best for their kids – personal choice should not be regulated by government!”

Rabun waved a satay stick around menacingly as he talked, “We are not calling for government to regulate choice – we just want our kids to study together so that they can break down the racial walls that divide! Like that also you cannot accept ka?”

“Didn't I just say that I called for a unified schools system? But by the very act of denying all other choices (as called for by the SSUS effort) aren't parents' choice being decided for them by the government? What next – marriage licenses only granted to government match-made couples? Government sanctioned babies?”

Rabun started to say something but I distracted him with another plateful of satay and quickly pressed home my point:

“Wouldn't you agree that the medium of instruction is not nearly as important as the quality of education. Besides, there are plenty of countries where their schools have various mediums of instruction, or where the medium of instruction is not the official language or where there exist successful official vernacular school systems. In the few examples I pointed out to you just now, even the Mat Salleh are turning to Chinese as a viable medium of instruction in their own country! Because what matters most is the quality of the education, not the language it is delivered in.”

Rabun was quiet for a moment. I could almost see the gears in his brain turning, resisting the new configurations being introduced, but no longer so sure in the old mechanisms. But obviously his deeply indoctrinated mind refused to give up so easily the myth he was so strongly sold on. So I half-expected the next thing he said:

“That may be so, but you pendatangs here are different...you have no interest in education quality either. You send your kids to Chinese schools because you refuse to integrate into Malaysian society. It is a clear demonstration of your own brand of pendatang racism because you want to preserve your Chinese-ness instead of adopting the culture of your adopted land. Since that's the case, we pribumis have to wonder why you all hauled your asses here in the first place! And now you dare to demand this and that!”

I shook my head at his circular reasoning – you pendatang prefer Chinese schools because you reject Malays & Malaysia, and the reason why you reject Malays & Malaysia is because you hold on to your racist pendatang mentality, if you have that pendatang mentality of course you prefer Chinese schools and reject Malays & Malaysia. Round and round goes the DemiNegara ideological carousel.

My friend Rabun seemed not to understand the fact that I was born and raised in Malaysia as a Malaysian citizen, ipso facto I am NOT a pendatang but a Malaysian bumiputra - "diputrakan di bumi Malaysia".

But I have long ago realised that there is no point arguing with people trapped in circular logic – it's just gonna go round and round and round with no end in sight. I decided to take a slight tangent on the argument:

“Of course I agree that having a strong sense of nationalism is important for nationhood and it has to be inculcated in schools. And one way to achieve this is having a strong mastery of the national language. But which is more important to the KeraBuas gang - the medium of instruction or the quality of education? I think the way they attacked me for suggesting that privately-funded vernacular schools be freely allowed makes it obvious that not only do they want all non-Malay languages disallowed from official schools, they won't even tolerate it in private schools. So their aim is not education and integration, but indoctrination and suppression of minorities.”

“I don't know about you, Rabun, but I think history has pretty clearly shown that fascism has never been the way to successful nation-building.”

“We are not fascist!” proclaimed Rabun indignantly. But the slight quiver in his voice was evident. Perhaps the facts were finally exploding the dangerous BTN myths that were deeply implanted in his mind. I could only hope so...

“Rabun, do you actually know what fascism is?”

“Erm...ah...er, of course! It's Hitler and all that! Do you see any Malays slaughtering Chinese in Malaysia?”

I chose not to mention the infamous incident 40 years ago involving the ruling junta and hundreds of innocents as it would only provoke a bitter argument and be counter-productive to our discussion. Instead, I gave Rabun a quick run-down of the core tenets of fascism and how the nation's ruling junta and their BTN indoctrinated hordes like the DemiNegara gang are similar. Among the points I pointed out to him in my Fascism 101 crash course:

- The nation or the race transcends all other loyalties

- Seeks to purge "alien" groups that “threaten” the community

- Often promotes racial superiority doctrines

- Seeks to activate "the people" against perceived enemies

- Seeks to forcibly subordinate all spheres of society to its ideological vision

“I'm sure you can easily draw references from KidalMalas' writings that demonstrate these traits, especially in his rationale for Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua,” I concluded.

Rabun was downcast. He looked down unappetizingly at his satay and said nothing. There was no arguing with the truth – the facts were undeniable. I felt sorry for my good friend because he had been so completely sold on the gospel according to DemiNegara.

I tried to offer some consolation, “Of course, I'm not accusing Malays as a whole as fascists, merely those who are pushing for the schools to be used as tools of mass official indoctrination.”

But no words could soothe when the truth cuts deep because the truth will not go away nor can it be changed to make it less hurtful. I tried to lighten the tone of the conversation instead.

“Hey, Rabun! Why so down la? This has nothing to do with you personally la. It's just some assholes are trying to impose fascism onto the nation. Thank God it's not too bad yet! You don't have to be a part of these assholes' agenda, you know. Open your eyes a little bigger and see the world for what it really is...you'll be all right in a few days!”

“That's so typical of you pendatang!” came his fierce retort, “You think you know so much but you have no idea about how our ancestors sacrificed for our Tanah Melayu. You all come here, refuse to subordinate to the dominant culture, grab all our wealth and now you lecture us about coming out of our coconut shells?!

I could understand his defensiveness – because of his deep belief in the DemiNegara mythology, he took the fallacies and failures of their ideologies personally, as if it reflected on him as his own. I felt sorry for him, but the truth had to be known. We cannot build a nation on lies. But the next sentence out of my friend shows obviously that there were more lies in his head that needed deconstructing.

“Don't you realise that we are the Tuan Tanah of this land and that you are squatting here at our pleasure? Yet you dare to call us pendatang as well. Hey, you stupid ka? You pendatang have exploited our patience and graciousness long enough and the day will come when you will all learn your place!”

Oh boy, here we go again. I prayed for God to grant me the strength to go the whole nine yards for my friend. I looked at my watch – ok la, still got time. I looked at the pile of satay – ok la, still got a lot. I sighed and grabbed another stick.

“OK, Rabun...what else is on your mind?”

  8. antuanchingky

    You're referring to Khoo Kay Kim, the govt employee who has never dared to say anything in dissent to UMNO, even though as a history professor he has full access to the facts of Malaysian history and knows full well where the UMNO version in our school textbooks differ from reality?

    Also you are talking about Bernama, the UMNO-controlled propaganda machine? The one that reported that the massive capital flight from Malaysia is a good thing?

    Real credible sources you are citing.

    How about all the sources I cited? No rebuttal for those? Come, come, come, surely you as an exalted DN Knight can do better than just cite your own proxies as the authoritive source.

    I cited reports from foreign press and government sites, carefully avoiding interest groups because they are naturally biased. Can't you return the same courtesy - or is it you have no such sources?

    And how many times do I have to repeat myself that I support a single public schools system, as long as other schools are allowed to go private?

    You DN Knights are blind or stupid or what?

    No. You guys are truly fascists because you can't stand the sight of anything that's not Malay enough for you - even if it's a private venture. You want to deny people their private choices simply because of their race.

    And calling people names and hurling insults are the best you can present as "debate"?

    If anything, you are a perfect example of how disgraceful our Malaysian education system has become - producing BTN-brainwashed gutter brains with no original thought and no ability to present a case.

    Now scurry along back to Kampung DN and cluck cluck cluck to the rest of the mighty jaguh there about how you successfully farted on EWO's blog because he wasn't too cowardly to leave his blog comments unmoderated.

    Which is more than I can say for HilangWaras.

  10. ahh...such eloquent debate.

    the little 4-yr-old brat at my kid's kindergarten should be a worthy match for you...that is if he thinks you're up to his standard la.

    Listen, you ignorant little twat, why don't you go back to Kampung DN and see how many times HilangWaras praises foreign countries' forced assimilation programmes (real and imagined). I only mentioned the foreign countries that HilangWaras himself mentioned FIRST!

    In a proper debate among adults (I'm typing slowly here so you can maybe have a chance to understand the adult concepts i'm trying to explain to you) this is called a "rebuttal", where you take your opponent's points and use facts and logic to prove them wrong.

    Paham?

    BTW, if citing foreign sources proves me to be a racist pengkhianat pendatang, what about HilangWaras? That little kampung fairy must be worst than me since I'm only the SECOND one to do it - after HIM!

    Ludah ke langit terkena muka sendiri - bahlol betoi enkau! kah kah kah!!

  12. Apa susah sangat nak gunakan Bahasa Melayu sebagai bahasa pengantar utama? Tidakkah EWO yang mengaku rakyat Malaysia mengiktiraf Bahasa Melayu sebagai bahasa Kebangsaan seperti yang tertulis dalam Perkara 152 Perlembagaan Malaysia? Pembelajaran bahasa ibunda seperti Mandarin masih boleh diajar sebagai bahasa elektif.

Kalau begitu, elok kiranya anda menunjukkan contoh ketam yang berjalan lurus. Bukannya menghentam ketam yang berjalan senget tetapi dalam masa yang sama anda pun turut menjadi ketam yang berjalan senget. Jadi dimanakah pendirian anda?

Nak gostan dan berputarbelit pulak dari tuduhan terhadap "Cina yang tidak berpatriotik" kepada menggunakan perkataan "segelintir rakyat" sahaja? "Segelintir rakyat" inilah yang melaung-laungkan tentang Ketuanan Melayu dan menghayun keris ke arah kaum Cina di malaysia.

  18. EWO dan rakan sekalian,

    Pendirian saya mudah. Saya mengutuk sebarang individu tidak kira parti yang tidak patriotik. Sama seperti anda yang mengutuk segelintir UMNOputra yang tidak patriotik menghantar anak ke sekolah-sekolah bagi tujuan pendidikan wajib di Malaysia tanpa alasan yang munasabah.

    Saya tidak pula mengutuk atau menghentam individu yang menghantar anak-anak ke Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan. Dan kenyataan yang dibuat oleh anda amat berbau perkauman dan sangat rasis.

    EWO tulis: ["Segelintir rakyat" inilah yang melaung-laungkan tentang Ketuanan Melayu dan menghayun keris ke arah kaum Cina di malaysia"]

    Kenyataan sebegini memang sangat rasis. Ketuanan Melayu nampaknya dipesongkan oleh anda. Ketuanan Melayu di sini bermaksud negara dipayungi oleh DYMM YDP Agong yang terdiri daripada Raja-Raja Melayu. Kenyataan yang dibuat oleh adalah bersifat menghasut.

    Berkenaan dengan "menghayun keris" pula, adalah satu tuduhan liar yang tiada asas. Dimana buktinya yang ada segelintir individu yang sudah tentu dari kaum Melayu menghayun keris ke arah kaum Cina? Berapa ramai kaum Cina yang tercedera dan terkorban? Kenyataan yang dibuat oleh EWO sekali lagi bersifat sangat rasis.

    Berbalik kepada isu pokok. Isu pokok yang perlu dibahaskan di sini ialah:

    Penggunaan bahasa Melayu sewajibnya digunakan di semua sekolah di Malaysia sebagai bahasa pengantar utama.

    Dan pendirian anda tidak pun menyentuh tenatng bahasa pengantar utama ini di semua sekolah di Malaysia.

    Bahasa Melayu sewajarnya digunakan oleh semua sekolah sebagai bahasa pengantar utama selaras dengan kedudukannya sebagai Bahasa Kebangsaan seperti mana diperuntukkan dalam Perkara 152 Perlembagaan Malaysia.

    Apa pendirian EWO dan semua yang berada di sini tentang peri perlunya mendaulatkan bahasa Kebangsaan di semua sekolah yang jelas termaktub dalam Perlembagaan negara kita? Itu yang perlu dijawab oleh semua rakyat Malaysia yang dengan bangga mendakwa diri sebagai Anak Bangsa Malaysia tetapi enggan mengiktiraf bahasa Melayu sebagai bahasa Kebangsaan.

    P/S: Kepada Anon 26/10/09 1:09 AM,
    Penggunaan Bahasa Melayu anda perlu diperbaiki. Secara peribadi, saya katakan bahasa anda sangat teruk sama seperti segelintit ahli Parlimen dan ADUN kita yang sangat teruk penggunaan bahasanya di Dewan Undangan Negeri mahupun Parlimen.

    Awak kata: "Saya tidak pula mengutuk atau menghentam individu yang menghantar anak-anak ke Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan. Dan kenyataan yang dibuat oleh anda amat berbau perkauman dan sangat rasis."

    Tapi anda tulis sebelumnya: "bangsawan dan orang Cina yang hantar anak mereka ke luar negara...mereka-mereka yang tidak patriotik yang menghantar anak ke luar negeri semata-mata tidak mahu mengikuti pendidikan wajib menyebabkan rakyat negara ini mengikut rentak mereka dengan mendesak agar bahasa Melayu tidak perlu dijadikan bahasa pengantar utama di sekolah-sekolah"

    Itu bukan kutukan? Pandai anda berbahasa...

    Tetapi isu pokok saya bukannya itu. Saya semata-mata hendak membongkarkan munafiknya mereka yang mengutuk SRJK tetapi sendirinya bermanafaatkan pendidikan bukan-Melayu.

    Awak kata: "Berkenaan dengan "menghayun keris" pula, adalah satu tuduhan liar yang tiada asas. Dimana buktinya yang ada segelintir individu yang sudah tentu dari kaum Melayu menghayun keris ke arah kaum Cina?"

    Aik?! Cepat sangat dah lupa gelagat mantan Menteri Pendidikan (kini Menteri Dalam Negeri) dalam perhimpunan agung UMNO tak lama dahulu ke? Kalau Menteri Kabinet dan pemimpimpin kanan UMNO yang menjadi teras parti BN tak berasa segan menayangkan keris Panca Warisan sambil melaungkan keinginan menggunakannya, bolehkah ia diandaikan yang sifat sebegitu digalakkan dan mungkin boleh menjadi suatu polisi parti secara tidak rasmi? Ramai yang berfikiran begitu.

    Dan saya mengutuk perbuatan keji sebegitu anda sifatkan sebagai menghasut? Macam mana pula dengan si dia yang tangannya menggenggam keris dan mulutnya melaungkan kata-kata itu?

    Awak kata: "Penggunaan bahasa Melayu sewajibnya digunakan di semua sekolah di Malaysia sebagai bahasa pengantar utama. Dan pendirian anda tidak pun menyentuh tenatng bahasa pengantar utama ini di semua sekolah di Malaysia."

    MACAM TU PUN MALAS NAK BACA LAGI KE?

    Saya komen:
    Sejak bila pula kita boleh segan menayang keris yang sudah menjadi sebahagian budaya kita? Adakah anda tidak mengiktiraf keris sebagai sebahagian dari budaya Malaysia? Dan bila pula Hishamudin menghasut mahu membunuh orang Cina? Sila berikan bukti, jangan hanya menuduh tanpa bukti.

    Anda tulis:
    Saya tidak membaca penulisan dari link yang diberi. Saya sudah baca. Malahan berasa pelik kerana anda yang kononnya cakap menjunjung kedudukan bahasa Melayu tetapi tidak pula menyatakan sekolah-sekolah yang dicadangkan di nombor 3 oleh anda boleh beroperasi tanpa menyatakan bahawa bahasa Melayu MESTI dijadikan bahasa pengantar utama.

    Malahan segala cadangan dari no. 1 hingga 5 boleh saya bahas dengan panjang lebar.

    1) IMPLEMENT A SINGLE OFFICIAL SCHOOL SYSTEM

    Sekarang pun dah ada sistem pendidikan kebangsaan. Ini termasuklah SK, SJKC dan SJKT. Bahasa pengantar utama yang digunakan oleh SK ialah bahasa Melayu. Bahasa Inggeris pun turut sama ditekan. Malahan bahasa ketiga seperti Mandarin dan Tamil turut sama ada ditawar. Yang masalahnya di sini yang tidak dinyatakan oleh anda ialah SJKC dan SJKT yang TIDAK menggunakan bahasa Melayu sebagai bahasa pengantar utama. Terdaulatkah bahasa Melayu sebagai bahasa Kebangsaan dalam Perlembagaan?

    Satu lagi anda kata tidak perlu diberi bantuan kepada sekolah yang tak guna bahasa Melayu (Sistem Pendidikan Kebangsaan). Tapi realitinya pelbagai pihak yang bersikap perkauman meminta agar Kerajaan memberikan peruntukan. Dan realitinya, SJKC dan SJKT ada mendapat peruntukan tersebut. Ini menunjukkan keprihatinan Kerajaan.

    2) REFORM THE MALAYSIAN SCHOOL SYSTEM

    Yang ini saya bersetuju. Perlu reformasi sistem pendidikan.

    3) FREELY ALLOW ALTERNATIVE STREAM SCHOOLS

    Cadangan nombor 3 ini yang mendedahkan kelemahan cadangan anda.

    Anda tulis:
    "ALL other alternatives to the official education system (including vernacular schools) must be freely allowed, but they must be privately-funded. These schools must open their doors to welcome every Malaysian without any form of discrimination, just as the Sekolah Kebangsaan are open to all races without discrimination."

    Saya komen:
    Selama ini pun Kerajaan membenarkan sekolah seperti dinyatakan anda beroperasi dan atas sikap prihatin Kerajaan turut sama memberikan dana. Mungkin anda tidak benar-benar tahu akan perjalanan sistem pendidikan di Malaysia ini.Dan disinilah saya pertikaikan anda. Apa pula bahasa pengantar UTAMa bagi sekolah-sekolah jenis ini? Tidak dinyatakan pun dalam cadangan anda. Sepertinya anda menyembunyikan niat sebenar anda melalui cadangan nombor 3 ini. Adakah anda bersetuju jika KESEMUA SEKOLAH DI MALAYSIA BEROPERASI DENGAN MENERIMA PAKAI BAHASA KEBANGSAAN SEBAGAI BAHASA PENGANTAR UTAMA?

    Saya guna huruf besar agar mudah untuk dijawab oleh anda.

    Membaca tanpa mengerti, memetik tanpa konteks, membalas tanpa fahaman dan membahas tanpa pertimbangan. Setakat itukah kehebatan Kesatria DemiNegara ni?

    Mengenai tayangan kris Bang Din - bacalah suratkhabar. Tapi mungkin rekod-rekod lama telah ditapis sepertimana rekod video protes kepala lembu di Malaysiakini cuba ditapis oleh MCMC. Kalau nak tapis media arus perdana yang lain senang saja sebab semuanya diperkudakan parti politik yang terlibat. Tapi carian Google akan mempamerkan ribuan komen-komen blog mengenai kejadian ini. Buatlah penyelidikan sikit...jangan malas!

    Dan jika nak tahu samada saya mengiktiraf nilai keris dalam budaya Melayu, sila baca siri rencana saya bertajuk "Keagungan Melayu".

    Masih malas baca lagi ke? Ini saya sedekahkan sedikit nasihat dari Sun Tzu - tokoh terkenal negara China dalam hal ehwal peperangan: "Kenal diri, kenal lawan, seratus pertempuran, seratus kejayaan."

    Hayatilah.

    Dan mengenai "perbahasan panjang lebar" anda:

    1) IMPLEMENT A SINGLE OFFICIAL SCHOOL SYSTEM

    Anda berbahas: "tidak dinyatakan oleh anda ialah SJKC dan SJKT yang TIDAK menggunakan bahasa Melayu sebagai bahasa pengantar utama. Terdaulatkah bahasa Melayu sebagai bahasa Kebangsaan dalam Perlembagaan?"

    Saya telah menulis cadangan saya dengan jelas di bawah tajuk yang dipetik anda:

    "The medium of instruction for the official Malaysian school system should be Bahasa Malaysia for all subjects - Maths and Science included. This is our National Language – the official lingua franca of all Malaysians as stated in the Constitution of Malaysia. As Malaysians, we must be fluent in the language of Malaysia, and the best place to start is in schools. This is indisputable."

    Janganlah buat malu sendiri dan para jaguh kampung DemiNegara dengan kemalasan sendiri!

    Bacalah wey, baca!!

    Anda kata: "realitinya, SJKC dan SJKT ada mendapat peruntukan tersebut. Ini menunjukkan keprihatinan Kerajaan."
    Kemudian: "anda kata tidak perlu diberi bantuan kepada sekolah yang tak guna bahasa Melayu"
    Lagi: "pihak yang bersikap perkauman meminta agar Kerajaan memberikan peruntukan"

    Awak ni sebenarnya nak cakap apa? Sekarang katakan saya tak sokong peruntukan kerajaan untuk SRJK, lepas tu puji kerajaan, lepas tu hentam kewujudan SRJK dan penyokong kuatnya - iaitu MCA. Poin engkau ni apa sebenarnya?

    Walau apapun, sepatutnya selaras dengan pendirian SSS anda, anda patut sokong poin saya untuk menarik balik sokongan kewangan kerajaan untuk SRJK kan? Jadi engkau ni nak hantam apa? Pusing la kepala aku!

    2) REFORM THE MALAYSIAN SCHOOL SYSTEM

    Saya tidak setuju dengan reformasi ala DemiNegara yang berdasarkan ideologi fascismenya. Reformasi yang saya maksudkan ialah jenis yang memberi lebih kebebasan dan demokrasi dan meritokrasi kepada system sekolah.

    3) FREELY ALLOW ALTERNATIVE STREAM SCHOOLS

    Anda kata: "Adakah anda bersetuju jika KESEMUA SEKOLAH DI MALAYSIA BEROPERASI DENGAN MENERIMA PAKAI BAHASA KEBANGSAAN SEBAGAI BAHASA PENGANTAR UTAMA?"

    Baca di atas, jangan malas.

    Sekolah rasmi sepatutnya 100% bahasa pengantarnya Bahasa Malaysia.

    Sekolah swasta - ikutlah suka mereka. Benda swasta dan peribadi pun hendak dikongkong kerajaan ke?

    itulah dipanggil fascisme brudder...

  23. Eh...mana jaguh-jaguh dari kampung DN?

    Dr yang dua ekor tu lepas baling najis mereka dah cabut lari jauh tak berani kembali? Bagus, pergi balik Tanjung Rambutan jumpa kawan-kawan kalian di sana.

    Yang Gook satu lagi berani hembus sepatah saja? Hebatnya kualiti minda pejuang DemiNegara!

    Antuanchingky yang hebat berdebat tu, dah gi mana? Dah balik kampung DN, berkokok dalam reban agaknya? Memang "chicken" patut berada di kampung, jumpa org bandaran mesti disembelih!

    Dan mana pula "panjang lebar" dari EWOK? Rasa macam pendek kecik saja? Dah kecut sampai kerongkong agaknya! kekekeke!

    Ala, maklumlah...betapa hebat kononnya sidang kesatria DemiNegara, omong kosong mereka mana boleh berbahas dengan fakta & kebenaran?

    KijangMas pula mana? Mana ekor ikan bilisnya yang kononnya telah mengajar ramai oengkhianat bangsa? Ekor keranya pun tak nampak kat sini?

    Kuncu-kuncu hebatnya mana> JMD? SatD? Cendana? Apocryphslist? Semuanya setakat harimau kat kampung sendiri sahaja. Tapi tak berani langsung berdepan dengan saya!

    Kakakaka!

    Yang siperkasa berkuncu ramai tu yang paling kecut - langsung tak berani tunjuk bulu hidung di luar kampungnya sendiri!

    Waaaakakakaka!!

    Saya tak moderate komen di blog saya pun tak berani berkomen. Tapi di blog dia, disimpan komen yang tak boleh dibalasnya. Hanya berani siarkan komen yang mudah dihentam - itupun hentam membabi buta tanpa fakta.

    Tutup kedai la, pengecut! Takde bola nak berdebat isu, kononnya nak memimpin usaha SSUS pula.

    Podahlah!!

  24. Kah kah kah ..... lucu banget si EWO nih sih.

    Obsessi nya terhadap Tuanku KijangMas Perkasa dah menjadi-jadi, tiada dapat di bendung lagi.

    Tapi apo nok di kato EWO wei, lamaran murahan mu tidak di layan. Rindu mu yang bergelora tidak kesampaian.

    Teruskan lah "perjuangan" solo mu untuk melamar Putra Mahkota Alam Citrawalla Semesta. Kami suka membaca cerita-cerita kartun lucu yang di jana oleh kepala hotak sewel mu itu. Sungguh mempesonakan.

    Ya EWO, martabatkan keagungan Bahasa Melayu dalam laman citra anda.

  27. alahai sidang DemiNegara yang buta lagi bodoh

    1...Tapi apo nok di kato EWO wei, lamaran murahan mu tidak di layan.

    Takde bola janganlah nak bercakap besar. Saya dah banyak kali berkomen di DemiNegara tetapi Putra Mahkota Alam Citrawalla Semesta engkau tu tak berani siarkan aje...

    terpaksa aku siarkan di blog saya sendiri terdahulu, kemudian barulah dia terpaksa menjawab. Tengok gelagat satria si kecut macam tu pun buat aku malas nak berkomen lagi di lamannya.

    Tak percaya? Search la di bawah label DemiNegara di blog saya. Tapi, pada pengalaman saya, penghuni kampung DemiNegara memang (1) malas nak buat penyelidikan, (2) hujah tak bernas, (3) baca tak faham, (4) faham pun akan memutarbelit, menyorok fakta dan berbagai lagi taktik murahan. Jadi saya pun tak heran kalau penghuni kampung DN nak membebel di sini. Sekurang-kurangnya, saya membenarkan tanpa had. Tak macam KecutMas! Kakakaakaah!

    Challenge punya challenge punya challenge depa tu aku sambut hingga dia tak berani jawab saya lagi. Tetapi challenge saya, tak pernah dia berani sahut.

    Apapun, apasal nak puji-puji si KecutMas setinggi itu? Nak tutup kelemahan ke? "Overcompensation" namanya!

    Nah...ini saya sedekahkan lagi sedikit pengetahuan untuk katak-katak di bawah tempurung di Kg DN. Bacalah tentang overcompensation di http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compensation_(psychology)

    Kakakakakah! Teruskan lagilah kerja bodoh dan buta menyembah Tuanku KijangMas Perkasa engkau tu! Kalo dia berani sahut cabaran saya, barulah saya respek sikit. Kalau tak, sorilah.

    Jantan pengecut macam HilangWaras tu nak tunjuk jantan? Nak berjaguh di kampung sendiri bolehlah, sama-sama dengan sidang mak nyah sekaumnya. Kakakakah!

    Tapi di sini, yang tak berotak akan dibongkar untuk perhatian dunia.

    Ohh...pasal tulah KecutMas tak berani datang ya?!

    kalau nak tahu samada saya sudah menghantam mereka yang menuntut SJKC, bacalah. cari bawah label "education". Jangan malas!

    Apalah yang nak ku cakap lagi? Kaum DN memang bodoh dan buta...

  29. Hiya there Eyes Wide Open,

    Some questions for you.
    1. If English is the most WIDELY spoken language why haven't the Chinese, Japanese , French..... converted their education system to English? Keeping in mind that these countries have had a much earlier start on education systems(schools, colleges, universities..) compared to Malaysia.
    2. You say "All over the world – from the US to Canada to the UK to Australia Mandarin language classes and Mandarin medium schools are the fastest growing education choice, both privately and officially" does this mean that that the governments of these countries have decided in making Mandarin the core or primary language for their education system? Or is it just as option. Is Australia going to start making Mandarin the primary medium in the universities anytime soon? If not why?
    3. What about historical perspective on your argument? Don't forget our education system was in English prior to independence. Why is it a problem only now or does it sound like I skipped on my history classes.

    Your questions are very odd. You ask me what are the policy rationales and future directions of these countries.

    How would I know? I not part of their decision making process. I'm only telling about things as they currently stand in the countries I mentioned.

    But I will try to answer some of your implied questions.

    1.why haven't the Chinese, Japanese , French..... converted their education system to English?

    I've always said that medium of instruction is not nearly as important as content.

    In fact, I wrote way back in December 2008:

    "quality of education is not about the language of delivery la! How I wish the people in charge can get it through their thick craniums.

    The Germans study in German
    The French study in French
    The Japanese study in Japanese
    The Mainland Chinese study in Mandarin
    The Hongkies study in Cantonese
    The Koreans study in Korean
    The Russians study in Russian

    They don't study any standard subjects in foreign languages. Yet these guys are in the forefront of various world industries. What difference does it make what language you study in?"

    That's why I think the PPSMI idea is pure CRAP! Do the Japanese study Science and Maths in English? How come they're one of the leading technology nations in the world? In fact, foreigners lucky enough to enter their uni must spend a year to immerse in the Japanese language first!

    Point is: language can be learnt. But lousy teachers and content will produce lousy students who will go on to be lousy workers and citizens, no matter what language is used to teach.

    2. does this mean that that the governments of these countries have decided in making Mandarin the core or primary language for their education system? Or is it just as option.

    I cannot predict the future of these countries any more than you can. But the news reports I quoted consistently recognise the importance of Mandarin and that more and more parents are opting for Mandarin language education.

    They have no hangups about "foreign" languages, even in their official school system.

    That's the point I'm making - what's with all the hangups by KecutMalas and gang about anything that looks, smells and sounds even remotely non-Malay?

    3. What about historical perspective on your argument? Don't forget our education system was in English prior to independence. Why is it a problem only now or does it sound like I skipped on my history classes.

    You mean we should continue to use the language of our past colonial masters? If so, most Asian countries will only study in French, English, Spanish, Dutch or Portuguese! Should we include Japanese too since they were briefly a colonial power?

    What about Malaysia which had FOUR colonial masters? Which language do we use?

    Maybe we should all go back to studying in Jawi then - the original written language of the original colonials of Malaysia: the Malays.

    Malaysia has chosen BM as its official language. Why do we need another language for schools? We can develop a strong culture of learning a second language.

    Again, quality of education is not about the language of delivery. Fix the curriculum of our schools, raise the bar for our teachers, de-politicise the education environment and we'll be on the right track.
