View Full Version : Chua Soi Lek - Is It Right?
26th October 2008, 05:57 PM
As we all know, Dr Chua Soi Lek, who resigned all positions in MCA as well as Health Minister last January when a video of his sexcapade in a Batu Pahat hotel was made public, was re-elected back into MCA recently.
There are a lot of discussions going on whether it is right for him to hold public office like a Minister, for example, when his reputation is tainted and which might posed a bad role model to the young, what do you all think?
In Malaysiakini, MP for Serdang YB Teo Ni Cheng, a 27-year old lady MP, said its acceptable because "this is not the west, this is the east and we are different". Is she saying extramarital sex and affairs are okay here?

I am told he won based on his campaign slogan "Have gun will travel" ;D

I just think it is ridiculous for one with a tainted past to hold public office.
I also think the DAP MP for Serdang should also speak only for herself...
How can we tell our children extramarital sex is not okay when the guy that is going to be VIP guest cutting ribbons and making speeches on TV screen in our living room almost every night?
The worse thing was for Chua Soi Lek to blame others for fixing him up but had never openly said what he himself committed was wrong.
Aiyoh MCA, you are making yourself more and more irrelevant by the minute. Good lah...

It is as if we have no more credible politicians in the MCA. I take that back..it is a fact that they have no more credible politicians..as they are no longer relevant in the political arena of 2008. Does it mean that in Malaysia we can forgive and accept as our leaders self-professed embezzlers, pedophiles, etc, etc?

Maybe MCA thinks that their hero will save their skin. He will shoot all the bad guys and save the day. ;D

Malu... malu... malu... someone caught with his pants down (literally) going to be a Minister of this country?
Please lah... doesn't MCA or CSL himself know what is malu?

In many countries, France for instance, the personal antics of the politicians behind the bedroom door, is their own affair and not even mentioned by the media.
In the US, things are a little bit more hypocritical. They have massive corruption and pretend to be morally correct. Recollect Clinton and "that woman" (Monica Lewinsky)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_did_not_have_sexual_relations_with_that_woman. He did a Houdini and managed to slip out of the impeachment proceedings conducted against him. How he did it is another story that could qualify for the Conspiracy Forum. ;D
Suppose you had to choose between sexual propriety and honesty. Which one will you choose?
In the real world, things are not always in black and white.

To me sexual propriety = honesty.
If a guy is caught with his pants down, he should just quit. Its not that I cannot accept other people's personal indiscretions, I just feel that if they choose to be leaders in politics, that they should behave themselves, period.
Its not a question of I don't care who they are bumping after 5pm, but if they want to continue bumping other women besides their spouses, that go and bump as much they like, but don't be my Minister or leader.
One cannot have the cake and eat it at the same time.

John F Kennedy was a womaniser..but all his sex romps were kept under wraps. We got to know about it years later after his death. His wife Jackie must have suffered and bore all those sufferings in silence. She had to..because he is the president and she wouldn't want to jepordise his presidency. What if his sex romps had been made public while he was in office? Look at Clinton. The American public seems to be very forgiving. I can't imagine our future PM who acts like John Kennedy or Clinton running our country..I wouldn't have any respect for him. The leader of a country should be exemplary in conduct as well as example. He/She is supposed to champion good behavior and righteousness..not have some sleezy tendencies. Imagine if the leader of a country is a rapist, drug dealer or corrupt business man....

The MP for Serdang said it is okay, this is the East, not the West, wonder what she meant by that?
