Ladies and Gentlemen,
Lee Kuan Yew's son who has inherited Singapore island from his father, the former dictator, is once again going after 16 year old outspoken Singaporean boy Amos Yee. Readers would remember the last time some months ago, he was convicted and imprisoned for making a video accusing the late Lee Kuan Yew of being a dictator and comparing him with another dictator of sorts in England, Margaret Thatcher with a cartoon of him having sex with her.
None of this was false as anyone who understands Singapore knows what Lee Kuan Yew was. And drawing such a cartoon is totally innocuous, a normal occurrence today all over the world. But of course Lee Kuan Yew like his son now are so insecure that even the slightest criticism has to be silenced just as Kim Jong Un of North Korea does.
Now he is being investigated again and very probably will be charged and imprisoned again, accused of posting religious hate speech. We don't know if any of this is true, as Singapore is a place where they can tailor any evidence to suit the occasion when it comes to political dissent.
In my case, having identified me as a critic, while in Singapore on July 4, 2008, American Independence Day, they accused me of "knocking on a police car". When they found that they couldn't pin me down on that several policemen in unison testified identically that for some reason I behaved "disorderly" which they explained as "waving my hands in the air" and "shouting". As to why I should do that was never explained, and promptly convicted. You can read about my escapades with this very interesting regime here in my 2008 blogs.

I think we should all be grateful to Amos Yee. In an island where no one has any courage to call a rat when needed, all we have is this boy who stands up as David against a Goliath and who puts all Singaporeans to shame. The courage that he has is equivalent to that of the entire island put together, an island of sheep.
Singapore is place where Lee Kuan Yew's son who was literally given the island by his father is the most corrupt politician in all Asia if not the world. He pays himself no less than $3 million in salaries and an equally large amount in hidden perks and kickbacks. Yet no one has the courage to call him that except this 16 year old boy.
It is an island where there is no freedom of speech, expression or assembly and the entire press and media are state controlled. Yet no one dares to challenge them except this boy.
Tiny Singapore island, a classic fascist state, is paying a far greater price for this authoritarianism than you may think. The best and brightest are leaving the island not wanting to live under a dictatorship. the quality of its citizens is being diluted daily since the only ones who are prepared to come are the second rate Communist Chinese and unemployed Indians in India, people who cannot really improve the quality of manpower.
This dilution in the quality of its citizens has been going on for some time and progressively the island is going backwards, not forwards. It seems Lee Kuan Yew's son either doesn't know or he doesn't care.
