IT’S getting tiresome and unproductive to recycle and revive these tropes. That Malaysia belongs to the Malays, that there are those out there challenging the dignity of the Malays and taking advantage of their kindness.
It only happens when the Malay polity has been upended. It happened in both Penang and Selangor after Barisan Nasional (BN) lost in the 2008 general election in both states. It is happening now after BN lost the federal government in 2018.
