Update: 03/30/2015, the earlier YouTube link for Amos Yee's video was taken down. I found another one that works. Here it is.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Lee Kuan Yew, the tyrant and dictator of Singapore island from 1959 till his death a few days ago had a disgraceful record of jailing and torturing those who disagreed with him including his victims Chia Thye Poh who spent 3 decades in jail, while JB Jeyaretnam was repeatedly sued through his famous tactic of defamation lawsuits, not to mention Chee Soon Juan and numerous others who faced a similar fate.
The name of Lee Kuan Yew will live in those who really know the history of the island among men such as Adolf Hitler, Mussolini, Franco of Spain and Stalin of Russia. If there is any difference between him and any of these men, it is only a question of degree. In their cases, they actually shot their political opponents, whereas he didn't shoot them. Instead in Lee's case he imprisoned and tortured them. As to whether it is worse to jail a man for decades or to shoot him right away is a question I will leave you to decide.
Just as Stalin brought great economic success to Russia, just as Hitler brought great economic success to Germany under the Third Reich, so did the tyrant Lee Kuan Yew. But it begs the question whether whatever success at this price is worth the success at all? Was the success in Singapore through the imprisonment of an innocent man Chia Thye Poh for 31 years without any trial worth the economic success he claims?
Was the success Singapore has achieved through bankrupting Chee Soon Juan, denying him a job, sending him to jail when he is totally innocent, worth any success that he and his son enjoying the position of Prime Minister claim?
Singapore today thanks to Lee Kuan Yew is a mindless conformist ignorant society who have lost their ability to think independently. Because it is necessary to be politically correct at all times they willingly place this tyrant on a pedestal all because it is the only profitable and safe thing to do. In Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore today being politically incorrect, like I am, means you are attacked not only by the government who have to break your spirit, but also by the average citizen. It would also mean the denial of housing, your job, your security and victimization for the rest of your life.
But I don't want to be politically correct. For me it is important to speak my mind which I have done throughout my life including the time I spent in Lee Kuan Yew's island. I don't want to be another digit among these disgraceful conformists that Lee Kuan Yew and his son demands.
But other than me, there is another Singaporean presently within the island of the father and son who refuses to be another digit in Lee Kuan Yew's island. His name is Amos Yee and he his is 17. A few days ago, he put up a video titled "Amos Yee: Lee Kuan Yew is finally dead". You can see the video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6TZPdM3xn24
In the video he calls Lee Kuan Yew a dictator, a hypocrite who hoodwinked Singaporeans into believing there was democracy by merely holding elections. He also claims that Lee Kuan Yew's books contain nothing but self aggrandizement taking pictures with famous politicians and posting those in his books. Please see the Yahoo report here https://sg.news.yahoo.com/police-report-lodged-over-amos-yee-anti-lee-kuan-yew-video-063152918.html
Lee Kuan Yew's Singaporeans like a pack of attack dogs obeying their master at his command, have in unison begun mindlessly attacking Amos Yee and demanding his lynching. Singapore police have arrested him on Sunday.
Why? Has he said anything that is not true? Is not Lee Kuan Yew a disgraceful dictator who jailed and silenced the entire clueless citizenry into obedience? Is he his family and his son not corrupt by paying or rather stealing $3.7 million a year each and calling it a salary? Is he not guilty of nepotism on an industrial scale, when he makes his clueless son Prime Minister and every one of his relatives both near and distant multi millionaires through open blatant shameless corruption? Has he not hijacked the courts and turned his judges into Kangaroos to serve his purpose and jail and bankrupt his critics?
If all that I said is true, why is Amos Yee guilty of anything? After all he has said exactly that and no more. And even if what I said is not true, does not Amos Yee have the right to freedom of expression? He has also attacked Jesus Christ. And why not if that is his belief? Is there a law in Singapore that everyone has to be a Christian?
Lee Kuan Yew's son who has been given the position of Prime Minister through his father's disgraceful nepotism is treading on thin ice by arresting Amos Yee. Today is not what Singapore was 20 years ago. The people are demanding their freedom. And persecuting Amos now for his individual beliefs may turn out the biggest mistake Lee's clueless son ever made. With increasing numbers of Singaporeans now becoming increasingly awakened over their rights, Amos Yee's arrest may well be a catalyst and trigger to even more citizens being outraged by Lee Kuan Yew and his son's excesses and thanks to Amos Yee may well turn out to be the birth of a nascent revolt. I hope it does.
Why don't they arrest me here in California, USA for categorically stating that Amos Yee was absolutely right because the recently deceased Lee Kuan Yew was indeed a ruthless disgraceful dictator. After all this blog is not only being read by Singaporeans in that island, it's popularity has been hitting through the roof. Just like Amos Yee, I want to tell Lee Kuan Yew's son to go ahead and sue me if he wants. And to use Amos Yee's language, I will be "happy to dance with him".
