With the Barisan Nasional control and monopoly over the mass media,
the Barisan Nasional parties are confident that they could persuade, mislead
or even stampede the Chinese voters to support the Barisan Nasional in
the next election, by creating the fear that support for Barisan
Alternative could result in three catastrophes, namely:
I agree that If the Malaysian Chinese can be persuaded, misled or stampeded into believing - at least when they enter the polling stations to cast their votes on polling day - that there could be another May 13 or racial unrest, end of economic recovery or the establishment of an Islamic state, if they supported the DAP and the Opposition, then Barisan Nasional will win with a landslide victory which might be even bigger than in the 1995 general election.
This is one important reason why the MCA and Gerakan are so confident about their election prospects in the next general election although so many things that have happened since the 1995 general election should make them worry about their loss of public support - whether the injustice of the Lim Guan Eng case, the Dr. Tan Eng Teck trigger-happy police shooting-death, the Nipah virus disaster causing the unnecessary death of 105 lives and ruination of the pig rearing industry in Malaysia, the Anwar Ibrahim case, and a whole host of others.
The question is whether Chinese voters can be so easily duped by the three trump cards of MCA and the Gerakan in the next general election to give the Barisan Nasional another landslide victory.
