Singapore insults your intelligence.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am not sure about you, but I have a reason why I joined JB Jeyaretnam's Workers Party in 1984 and contested 2 general elections in Singapore; why I wrote to the Singapore Attorney General Tan Boon Teik in the 1980s and got myself suspended from practice for 2 years, why recently in 2008 I wrote a blog criticizing Lee Kuan Yew judge Belinda Ang Saw Ean who misused her judicial office when she punished opposition leader Dr. Chee Soon Juan, and it is this; Singapore insults my intelligence and I refuse to simply take it lying down.

Tell me if these things do not insult your intelligence? Why is it necessary for anyone to have to apply for a permit to give a speech in public? Why is it necessary to have to apply for a permit from Lee Kuan Yew government to peacefully protest in public? Why is it wrong to criticize a judge when she is shamelessly abusing her office? Why is it necessary to be a PAP supporter to advance in your career and punished if you were an opposition supporter?

Why are there no free press in Singapore and every single one is state controlled? Why are we not allowed to read real news instead of being dished out this rubbish propaganda?

It is all these things that makes one's blood boil. It is these things in Singapore that insults your intelligence.

You don't have to take this garbage anymore. Stand up to your rights. Protest, yell scream, do anything you can to make it known that you simply refuse to be insulted by this tin pot dictator any longer.

why is singapore lee kuan yew still in power, because usa allows him to be their partner, just like egypt's dictator. usa will close one eye because of the fake popular polls by the dummies singkees

what we need is people power - but singaporeans are too rich for revolution. just wait for the opportunity to get rid of lky to be over. singaporeans will learn a hard lesson.

The USA will always side with freedom when it suits them. If Singaporeans stand up to Lee Kuan Yew, the USA will change change sides, as qucick as you can bat an eyelid. USA always prefers to back democracies, if they don't hurt their business and geopolitical interests.

Example China. When it is not in their business interests, they sing a different tune. That is sadly the case.

That is hypocrate USA.

To Anonymous of Feb 02, 0818,

No you don't have to thank me for that. If you did not already know, not just the USA but Britain, Australia and evey single Western government will continue to side with whoever suits them, up till a point. When the ground shifts as it now is in Egypt, they too will shift because it suits them.

But that is not the point. There is one greatest difference between a Pariah banana republic such as Singapore and a great country such as the USA beside geopolitical realities, and that is, the USA does not prosecute and jail its citizens just because they excercise their constitutional rights of free speech expression and assembly like Singapore does. It does not abuse the legal system to silence political opponents like the Pariah banana country like Singapore does. It does not discriminate it's minorities like the Pariah country Singapore does. And it does not have Pariahs like you living in the USA like you are, in your Pariah country.

That is the difference which I assume you did not know, becasue you are a "digit" as Lee Kuan Yew calls you.

Can you write some articles on constitution rights to educate Singaporeans? I think most of the Singaporeans do not even know what is legally their civil right and the importance of it. We often associate civil right as street protest; and street protest with violence and looting. It is sad for me to see that some Singapore know so little, although their well trained professional.

I am one of those who used to think Dr CSJ in a bad light. Now I see that he may be the man who will be remembered well in history. The day will come.

If there is no such thing as free lunch from smelly Old Fart, and to top it all he include no free speech!

This is a product of Sinkies keep voting a dictator in power and never want to anything to it. The whole system rots then.

As an American, I can say that almost all of us would rather not exist than give up or rights....not just freedom of assembly, speech, religion, etc. but the right to be what we want to be regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, etc. Having traveled and lived in other countries, I say with confidence that there is no country on earth that respects individual, and I repeat individual freedom more than the USA. Having said that, it is our desire and responsibility to exhibit and relay our individual freedoms to others, but it is not our responsibility to unilaterally impose our values on others. Yes, we do business with Singapore, and yes, as with most enterprises they are going to what is necessary to do business in the regime. That does not mean the American people would support the corrupt government. They certainly would not support the judicial gender discrimination, lack of free speech, etc. But no on knows about this because there seems to be few Singaporeans that really care...and those that do, leave. I can assure you the American public and American government would support efforts by the Singaporean people to do something, but you, my friends, have to make the first move. An American business in Singapore is a guest--a foreigner--and the U.S. government is an outsider as well and will generally respect Singaporean laws even if they do not agree with them. Change in Singapore can only come from Singaporeans......and then see what the USA can do to help.

I think George Orwell put it correctly in "1984".

"If you can say that 2 plus 2 is 4, everything else will follow".

In the US you can. In Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore, you cannot.

By the way, I read the book once again in Lee Kuan Yew's Queenstown Prison in Singapore in 2008, for criticizing his judge Belinda Ang Saw Ean.
