Fear ridden Singapore government settles for third rate Chinese immigrants

Ladies and Gentlemen,

If a traveler just landed at Singapore’s Changi International Airport and took a walk along Singapore Island’s city, he would see the vast majority of the people to be only of Chinese descent. In fact more than half of Singaporeans today are now recently arrived immigrants mainly from the Peoples Republic of China and a slightly smaller number made up of people of Chinese descent from neighboring Malaysia.

The island government has for some time declared their policy of bringing in large numbers of immigrants because far too many local Singaporeans are opting to leave for settlement abroad especially to Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the USA.

Although tiny Singapore needs skilled and educated immigrants to replace those who are leaving, it's government’s main source of immigrants are just two countries, the Peoples Republic of China and ethnic Chinese from Malaysia.

Although the global talent pool is obviously spread out across the world, including   Eastern Europe, Australasia, and Latin America and elsewhere, and allowing the best qualified immigrants to come to Singapore regardless of their countries of origin would obviously be in the island's best interest, the Lee Kuan Yew government appears willing to accept only Chinese or Chinese looking people and willingly forgoes all those better qualified candidates from the rest of the world.

This deliberate racial policy obviously impedes the development of the island which would have benefited much more had they allowed the best regardless of who they are.

The reason for the Lee Kuan Yew government in this blatant racial discrimination in favor of Chinese looking people is the fear they have towards non Chinese people. They fear that people from Eastern Europe, Middle East or Latin America or elsewhere might not be willing to live in fear and subjugation as the Chinese with their Confucian submissive character would, and this may be a threat to their continued rule over the voiceless and timid Singaporeans of today. It is their hope that Chinese from China and ethnic Chinese from Malaysia would, like Singapore citizens, willingly eat humble pie, toe the line, not rock the boat and accept any nonsense Lee Kuan Yew throws at them.

Such a policy is highly dishonest and it shows a complete lack of integrity on the part of the government.

In essence, what they are doing by only accepting Chinese nationals is to forgo the best interests of the island by refusing to accept better qualified people from elsewhere in the world, for their own self interest to hold on to power by accepting only Chinese from China, whom they believe to be as submissive and obedient as the locals adn therefore not a threat to their grip on power.

As a result of their selfish policies which damage the island's best interests, you find masses of Chinese immigrants in Singapore Island many of whom cannot even speak English with their uncouth mannerisms which they bring with them from their country. By restricting their immigrants from only one source, China, they are losing out on the much larger talent pool of the rest of the world from which to choose from.

It is Lee Kuan Yew’s dictatorial government, without the rule of law, which is the main reason why the island has one of the highest rates of brain drain in the world. At the same time, if you restrict the pool of skilled people around the world from which to choose immigrants, you are ending up with the best leaving the island that are replaced by these third rate people from China. With this sort of policy, the island will decline even faster than it is doing now.

Lee Kuan Yew is a RACIST.

And, the majority of Singapore's Chinese subscribe to LKY's racist ideology.

Which is why they never objected to LKY bringing in Chinese from the PRC and Malaysia.

The Chinese, especially the men, are an insecure race, especially when coming up against Caucasians.

Their slanty eyes make them stand out, and are objects of derision by racist Westerners. And there is the innuendo of Chinese men having small 'packages'.

But, the same Chinamen feel superior to Souteast Asians. They imply that their economic success is due to genes that these SE Asians lack. Hence, allowing more PRCs into SIngapore means increasing the good gene pool.

"Hally, you best Chinaman west of Peking."

Harry LKY is simply following his master's instructions and bringing in boatloads of PRCs.

“The Bell curve is a fact of life. The blacks on average score 85 per cent on IQ and it is accurate, nothing to do with culture. The whites score on average 100. Asians score more … the Bell curve authors put it at least 10 points higher. These are realities that, if you do not accept, will lead to frustration because you will be spending money on wrong assumptions and the results cannot follow.”
- Lee Kuan Yew, The Man & His Ideas, 1997

I think LKY and his fellow racist Chinaman need to see Freud. They have issues.

The Jon Gosselin Story: Asian Men and Penis Size
Kate Gosselin joked that Jon’s penis was “stubby” and how his ex-girlfriend Hailey Glassman said that he had a “tiny, tiny, tiny” penis in a recent issue of Us Weekly.

Might explain why Chinese women like Westerners - white skin and big package.

You should re-title this to

Fear ridden Singapore's Chinese government settles for third rate Chinese immigrants

Much easier to rationalise their inane and racist policies

Lee Kuan Yew is a racist.

"In February 1987, Lee's son commented further on the status of the Malays in an open forum on why Malays do not hold sensitive positions in the armed forces. Explaining that there are no Malay fighter pilots, for example, because their religion might conflict with their duty to Singapore, he provoked a backlash of criticism from the Muslim community in addition to Singapore's Muslim neighbours."

And Singapore's Chinese majority were happy to go along with the racist idealogy.

China is now the new Soviet union, a threat to the USA and freedom loving people everywhere.

Using LKY/Singapore-Chinese logic, the loyalty of any Chinese overseas should be questioned.
Are the Chinese in the USA, Australia, Malysia, and especially Singapore, spies for the PRC. How do we know that they are loyal to the counties where they are 'citizens'?

Singapore is no more.

There was a brief period in the 70s and 80s, during which people were starting to build a unique SIngaporean identity - not Chinese, Malay, Indian, Eurasian or other.

But, LKY's racist policies, warmly embraced by many (not all) of Singapore's Chinese have destroyed this cohesion.

And his son's flawed economic policies have made Singapore a 1st world country but with 3rd world wages for Singaporeans.

Ironically, Singapore's Chinese are among the biggest losers. They have meet the PRC and don't like these people.

Singapore's South Indians don't like the North Indians.

And the Muslim Malays can't stand the Christian Pinoys.

Be glad that you had the chance to leave and land in California.

Singapore is no more :(

I agree with your comment except that your attack on Singapore's local Chinese is not entirely fair. You must agree that Singaporeans, regardless of Chinese Malay or Indian have had no say whatsoever in Lee Kuan Yew's immigration policy or for that matter anything else. The Singapore goverment have always done whatever they want, then and now. For the sake of argument, if the government had decided to bring in only Mongolians and Siberians and no one else, the locals could have done nothing about it. The Singapore government is simply a dictatorship who do anything they want anytime, and your views simply do not matter. For you to claim that local Chinese Singaporeans connived or colluded in such a policy is surely not fair. They had nothing to do with it.

You are right, they had nothing to do with it.

They couldn't care. Too busy being obedient Confucians. Leave politics to other other races or rare Chinese chaps like Dr Chee.

The GOVERNMENT and our LEADER will provide. It is disrespectful to question their wisdom.

This is what we are fighting for? There are many like this parasite in Singapore. Which is why the PAP will be returned to power in 2016.

Mr C. Lim (not his real name) sold his Sengkang flat at a high price. With the cash he was able to use it and pay for the down payment of a condo and a fancy car with the rest paid for by monthly installments. He is working as a salesperson selling financial instruments in a bank.

He has two very young children. He is full of praise for Mah Bow Tan, because according to him; if not for Mah he won’t be enjoying the “good life” he is living now.

Prior to Feb16, I happened to casually ask him “C. aren’t you going to Hong Lim for your two young children’s sake?” This was his reply “Pam, I live in a condo, drives and very comfortable with my life now. Why should I want to change it?

>>If those people at Hong Lim manage to make the Govt. to change it’s policies for the benefit of my children, I would be able to enjoy it too; don’t you think so since I am a Singaporean too?”<<
