SSUS: An idea tainted with hypocricy?

The Star reported this; Chinese groups to meet DPM on education issues

Why are they so against the teaching of Math & Science in English. Is it really the usage of English that's bothering them? Why do they want it so bad the subjects be taught in their "mother" tongue? Why not join hands with those against the same method of teaching and demand that the subjects be taught in Bahasa Melayu instead? Why is not our Deputy Minister go on the offensive with regard to this? Can we, the folks watching from the outside, not imply anything from this? But we do not want to do that, do we?

Why when they are doing it it is not racist? When they wanted to meet the DPM and promote their agendas, it's okay but when others wanted to do so, there's malice in the picture. Why can't this group of bloggers meet up with the DPM and convey their thought with regard to the 1 school system? Why the initiative to promote 1 school concept be tagged with hypocrisy, racism etc. when there exist the likes of the 7 groups mentioned in the Star Online above. It's the general idea of promoting unity through the establishment of 1 school concept that should be look into and not the skin colours of the those promoting and supporting the same. The idea is beyond race or politics. Is that so hard to comprehend?

When anti-PPMSI folks want the teaching of Math & Science to be reverted back to Bahasa Melayu, or Bahasa Mandarin for that matter, that's alright, but when the bloggers take it a little further, to promote the idea of streamlining the education process to a single medium, with unity and the building of the Negara Bangsa in mind, suddenly that's a no-no? Who the hypocrites here?

Salam Tuan Lawyer,

Adakah memang budaya orang Melayu ini cuma bertahan saja ? Tidak agresif dalam memperjuangkan isu yang menyentuh kedaulatan dan maruah bangsa ?

Ini terang2 mencabar semangat kebangsaan dan bangsa. Dimana suara2 mereka yang menentang PPSMI atas dasar kedaulatan Bahasa Melayu, kerana secara logiknya, mereka juga harus menentang tindakan ini, malah dengan lebih semangat lagi.

Dari sudut lain nampak jelas demand mereka ini menelanjangi motif sebenar mereka yang berdemo antiPPSMI dahulu adalah kerana motif politik.

Dan bila difikirkan sejenak disebalik tindakan kumpulan cina ini, timbul satu persoalan -
Kenapa mereka begitu berani demand ?

Dari kecil kita disogokkan dengan kata2 Bahasa Jiwa Bangsa. Jika bangsa Malaysia yang kita inginkan , apalagi kalau bukan Bahasa Malaysia yang kita perjuangkan ?!

Tuan, kita lawan balik !

Salam sejahtera Tuan Lawyer,

Now let's see from this episode who is talking for 'Unity" and who is talking against 'Unity'.

Unity by definition:-

1. the state of being one; oneness.

2. a whole or totality as combining all its parts into one.

3. the state or fact of being united or combined into one, as of the parts of a whole; unification.

4. absence of diversity; unvaried or uniform character.

5. oneness of mind, feeling, etc., as among a number of persons; concord, harmony, or agreement.

Let's see:-

"oneness", "combined", "united", "uniform", "minds in agreement"

equals to "One School For All"?

whereas;

"not one", "in parts", "varied", "many minds"

equals to "pemuda MCA / wee ka siong"?

Are we so "diverse" that we even forgot the simple meaning of "unity"?

and if I may add:-

"Unity through diversity" the PM sings at his 1Malaysia blog

while

definition above states Unity is the absence of diversity?

"One School For All" is asking the government to revisit (conduct in-depth study) the education policy from the perspective of Nation building, that is, to realise "Satu Bangsa Malaysia yang utuh dan bersatu padu"

Is that "racism"?

Let us ponder.

"SATU BANGSA, SATU NEGARA, SATU BAHASA"
