Understand the history of the MCA. It was a renegade party set up by the British and the Kuomintang to betray the Chinese community who were opposed to British rule back in 1948.

The initial members of the MCA were mainly Kuomintang (KMT) members who joined as an alternative and also in opposition to the Malayan Communist Party. This formation was with the implicit support by post-World War II British Reoccupation Authority. At that time, the MCA members then were divided according to their respective home states.The first leaders of the MCA were Kuomintang army leaders. Leong Yew Koh, was a KMT major general who became a cabinet minister and later became governor of Malacca; Malaysia's first minister of finance, Tun Henry H.S. Lee, was a colonel; and Dr Lim Chong Eu, the leader of the Radical Party, and joined the MCA in 1952, was a colonel (medical) doctor in the Kuomintang. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malaysi...se_Association

Why MCA is finished

I think the MCA will be totally wiped out at the next general election for the following reasons:

1 The people, especially the educated urban voters, are fed up and want a big and drastic change. So they will dump MCA and Gerakan, and will go all out to vote for the alternative front, especially the DAP.

2 Looking at the type of leaders the MCA currently has, it is obvious that almost none of them are fit and credible to be elected representatives. The MCA will lose if it fields its present leaders and those who lost in the last general election, including the foolish ones who talk rubbish all the time (like the stupid fellow who wants to set up a “Chinese Perkasa” or that silly Penang woman who attacked Guan Eng for giving projects to Malay contractors via open tenders).

3 If the DAP fields candidates like the late Teoh Beng Hock’s sister against the MCA president’s son in Johor, he will lose his deposit. Donald Duck will also be roasted and lose his deposit if he is fielded again. There is no hope for any MCA candidate in Penang, and the party should stay out of the state or risks having all its candidate lose deposits there.

4 The people are wise enough not to be convinced by the so-called “achievements” MCA president Chua Soi Lek boasted about, as they know it is the massive rejection of the MCA and BN at the last general election that resulted in Najib and Umno giving the concessions to the people, not because of what the MCA has done.

5 Even the MCA grassroots members have no confidence in the party, with many defecting to join the DAP or PKR. If the MCA claim that it has nearly a million members is true, how come its votes in the previous general elections are way below the million-mark? Even its previous president Ong Tee Kiat and ex-Wanita chief Chew Mei Fun have given the thumbs-down to the current leaders, especially the president, saying he should not be fielded by the BN.

6 The educated and intelligent people know that the MCA is servile and subservient to Big Brother Umno in the BN, and all its leaders in the Cabinet are merely window-dressing political mannequins with no essential policy-making power. They are used to making announcements of policies, programmes and projects decided by their Umno bosses, but are not part of the real decision-making process in the government. The wise, intelligent and intellectual will obviously not support the MCA.
