Singaporeans from all walks of life, who know how to use reverse psychology, are dissuading the United States from keeping Amos Yee because he is such a model citizen.

This after the 18-year-old teenager went to Chicago and was detained on Dec. 16, 2016, as he sought political asylum, a move Singaporeans have labelled as “courageous” and “upworthy”.

One Singaporean, Wa Mai La, said: “Amos Yee is the most upright citizen of Singapore. He will contribute greatly to the diverse fabric of US society by integrating with your people and upholding your values if he were made to stay.”

“He did much to improve Singapore’s standing when he was here, that’s why we can’t bear to have him leave us.”

Other locals said Amos Yee’s departure from Singapore is Singaporeans’ collective loss.

Another local, Gong Jiao Wei, said: “It pains us to know that we won’t be able to have him back, but his spirit will always be with us.”

“And that is enough to console us.”

“His absence will be felt deeply and we hope you will grieve with us as we have grieved.”

At press time, other Singaporeans wished the US well as this will be a new beginning for them as well.

He could have been banished to an off-shore island.

Emphasisng the need not to resort to draconian methods as violent punishment, authorities said they would maintain a light-touch regulatory approach to governing the Internet in Singapore by continuing to cane and put in prison those whose online behaviour violates social norms.

Saying how they would refrain from using a wide array of other more violent sanctions, such as cutting off hands, tongues and ears, as such acts of barbarity will not be condoned publicly, Singapore’s choice of detention and imprisonment is the most humane method of reforming those who cross the line.

Singaporeans from all walks of life said they agree with Singapore’s light-touch approach as it will cast the country in a good light internationally.

One Singaporean, Shang Fa Ting, said: “Singapore’s light-touch approach is clearly manifested in the Amos Yee case. He could have been banished to an off-shore island, locked up and the key thrown away.”

“Or he could have been summarily executed without the hassle of a public trial.”

“But all we’re seeing is him being arrested and charged in court twice. He could have had it much worse.”

This is the correct thing to do.

amos-yee-turn-other-cheek

Highly religious Singaporeans from all walks of life, who like to dabble in other people’s business and occasionally feel offended from time to time, have urged one another to turn the other cheek to Amos Yee.

This after they read that for it has been written, the meek shall inherit the earth.

One highly religious Singaporean, Qu Jiao Tang, said: “From Jonah to Noah to Moses, we have seen how others before us have been tested and put in difficult situations.”

“We are not the first. Neither will we be the last. Take comfort in this knowledge, my brothers and sisters.”

“To be highly religious, we must turn the other cheek to Amos Yee even though we feel offended by him.”

“That is the correct thing to do.”

Other highly religious Singaporeans said Amos Yee was sent to Earth for a purpose because everything has been ordained.

Another highly religious local, Xing Ye Shu, said: “This is our time to shine.”

“We must lead by example and be the shining lights in our community.”

“If Amos Yee were gay, we would oppose more vehemently though.”

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who think conspiratorially, have looked at one another with a side glance and nodded knowingly.

One Singaporean, Hock Kian Peng, who served as a store man during NS because he always has an unexplained pain in his knee and reports sick often to get Attend C from the Medical Officer, said: “I have seen all kinds of things before when I went to report sick, but this one, this one is special.”

“This kind is confirm chao keng. Keng until to the max. Keng until Medical Board. Keng until Pes F. Like that you think got any unit dare to let him handle rifle?”

“There is really no other explanation that can account for this behaviour. This one seems hell bent on something else altogether. Not just normal deliquency, not just truancy or sexual frustration.”

“And this one seems too well-planned.”

“If he pulls it off, he will be the most chao keng kia in Singapore’s history of chao keng kias.”

Singaporeans from all walks of life, are throwing themselves on the ground and prostrating, thanking Lee Kuan Yew in the sky as tears flow down their face.

One Singaporean, Jin Gan En, said: “Thank you Lee Kuan Yew. You have not forsaken us. Even in death he can still deliver Singapore from the clutches of subversive forces.”

“In politics, there is no such thing as coincidences.”

“This is a sign Lee Kuan Yew is still watching over Singapore and taking care of each and every single one of us.”

However, other locals said this is only the beginning.

Another local, Zhen Wei Da, said: “Lee Kuan Yew will make Singapore great again.”

“He will restore economic growth to 10 percent per annum because no one in the Cabinet currently can, except Tharman.”

Yee looks set to spend more time in detention as his case is being slowly processed, and is also at risk of being deported back to Singapore and banned from re-entering the US for good.

One Singaporean, Wa Mai La, said: “Amos Yee is the most upright citizen of Singapore. He will contribute greatly to the diverse fabric of US society by integrating with your people and upholding your values if he were made to stay.”

“He did much to improve Singapore’s standing when he was here, that’s why we can’t bear to have him leave us.”

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who think conspiratorially, have looked at one another with a side glance and nodded knowingly.

This after they came to the enlightened realisation that teenage anarchist Amos Yee might be doing everything he is currently doing to get out of serving his National Service stint.

The 18-year-old, who is out of school, is due for NS call-up soon but has now defected to the United States where he is detained for seeking political asylum.

One Singaporean, Hock Kian Peng, who served as a store man during NS because he always has an unexplained pain in his knee and reports sick often to get Attend C from the Medical Officer, said: “I have seen all kinds of things before when I went to report sick, but this one, this one is special.”

He can do more.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who think conspiratorially, have looked at one another with a side glance and shook their head collectively.

This after they came to the enlightened realisation that teenage anarchist Amos Yee might not be doing enough to get out of serving his National Service stint.

This after Yee posted a video on his own YouTube channel alleging he was assaulted at Jurong Point. This follows news that he is going on trial to faces eight new charges for his online antics barely a year after he was jailed the first time.

The 17-year-old, who is out of school, will most likely be due for NS call-up soon.

One Singaporean, Hock Kian Peng, who served as a store man during NS because he always has an unexplained pain in his knee and reports sick often to get Attend C from the Medical Officer, said: “I have seen all kinds of things before when I went to report sick, but this one, this one is special.”

“And this one seems too well-planned.”

“If he pulls it off, he will be the most chao keng kia in Singapore’s history of chao keng kias.”

“But alas, the military will still call him up to serve NS because he is still not doing enough.”

This after they came to the enlightened realisation that Amos Yee, the teenager with too much free time, is doing everything he is currently doing to act as a major liability to get out of serving his National Service stint.

The 17-year-old, who is out of school, will most likely be due for NS call-up soon.

One Singaporean, Hock Kian Peng, who served as a store man during NS because he always has an unexplained pain in his knee and reports sick often to get Attend C from the Medical Officer, said: “I have seen all kinds of things before when I went to report sick, but this one, this one is special.”

This puts Singapore in a bad light as it shows we cannot even groom proper anarchists.

amos-yee-ge

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who have a low tolerance for all things second-best, have come out to dismiss teenager Amos Yee as a lousy rebel and ineffective anarchist.

This after the 17-year-old teen was picked up by the police for investigation for the second time as he had allegedly made religiously insensitive remarks online again.

One Singaporean, Mei You Yong, said this makes Amos Yee not very good at being rebellious: “In other countries, rebels will take on more dominant forces on the streets day and night and commit atrocities such as beheading and fight tooth and nail for small gains.”

“Amos Yee, on the other hand, can’t even do anything truly rebellious but just write things online that nobody reads and still get called in by the police.”

“He is not even a seventh-rate rebel at best.”

“On a scale of one to 10 for rebelliousness, this is like a minus 17.”

Other Singaporeans said Amos Yee’s faux-rebelliousness will only serve to put Singapore in a bad light internationally as it shows the world we once again lack local talent and cannot even nurture truly rebellious anarchists who know how to properly raise hell in society.

Jin Boh Yong, another local, said: “Little bit, little bit, get arrested already.”

“It seems like we cannot even do something more major to show the world we have what it takes to be the best on the global stage.”

“There is really a problem with local talent.”

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.

amos-yee-one-piece-suit-cropped

Amos Yee, the 17-year-old teen who was previously arrested for making religiously insensitive remarks online, has confirmed via his Facebook page that he was picked up by the police for investigation again.

It is believed his latest brush with the authorities stems from one of his latest blog posts on Nov. 27, where Yee made reference to a Singaporean man with a blue tick beside his name and Islam.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “Amos Yee’s plan to avoid National Service is really coming together.”
Hock Kian Peng, 44-year-old Singapore Armed Forces regular

 

sian-half-uncle “Makes you wonder why the Singaporean man with a blue tick beside his name hasn’t been arrested yet.”
Jing Cha Ju, 62-year-old security guard

 

happy-bird-girl “This is the reality of joining the police force as a full-timer. Interrogating teenagers about what they blog about.”
Zuo Gong, 17-year-old part-time blogger

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.

amos-yee-free

Teen blogger Amos Yee was seen in videos posted on social media on July 6, 2015, looking disturbed and completely broken after being released into the wild again having received a four-week jail term that was backdated to June 2, 2015.

The 16-year-old’s jail term was backdated to June 2, making him one of the youngest persons to be imprisoned in Singapore.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “No wonder Singapore invests so much in the Yellow Ribbon Project. Inmates come out looking like that definitely have no chance of assimilating back into polite society.”
Qu Zuo Lao, 40-year-old serial drama watcher

 

sian-half-uncle “This makes the death penalty look mild and acceptable.”
Sha Shi Ni, 62-year-old butcher

 

happy-bird-girl “This would teach him not to make any more offensive postings here anymore. If he really wants to, he should do it when based overseas.”
Jin Guai Lan, 18-year-old dropout

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 





Scientists: Burning PM Lee Hsien Loong’s effigy need not necessarily cause Amos Yee’s release from remand

Scientists: Burning PM Lee Hsien Loong’s effigy need not necessarily cause Amos Yee’s release from remand

Tags: , , ,


Role of causal thinking needs to be reexamined, magical realism to be debunked.

amos-yee-hk-protest

Leading scientists from all fields of study have come out to clarify that the burning of effigies will not necessarily cause the desired outcomes that burners of effigies hope will eventually happen.

This after 50 protesters in Hong Kong on Sunday burnt effigies of Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and first prime minister Lee Kuan Yew at a demonstration held near the Singapore Consulate in Admiralty district — one day ahead of Amos Yee’s expected sentencing — to demand the release of the Singaporean teen blogger.

However, leading scientists have since reiterated their stand that the role of causal thinking needs to be examined more thoroughly, as doing one action does not necessarily lead to a specific reaction that is the desired outcome.

One scientist, Ke Xue Jia, said: “This belief that burning the effigies of statesmen would cause a person held in prison or remand to be released is mainly based on superstitious reasoning.”

“We are not sure what exactly led the protesters to try burning effigies in the first place when the success rate is at best shady, and at worst, random.”

“This makes their actions rather meaningless, especially from an evolutionary point-of-view, as how does this pointless act of burning even contribute to the success of the human species?”

Other scientists say protesters will be better equipped to deal with such future situations if they bothered to properly test their beliefs, treating each idea they have as a provisionally accepted hypothesis, and from there, eliminate false beliefs while extending their findings so that they only do what really works and not waste time and energy being occupied on efforts that don’t pay off.

Another scientist, Zhen Chong Ming, said: “To conduct a proper experiment, there has to be separate testable conditions: One where only one effigy is burnt and measure what the effect is, and slowly move on to burning more effigies to see if it improves the success rate and efficacy of incinerating symbolic items to reach a desired outcome.”

“Or else, blindly burning things randomly is the same as blindly incarcerating individuals for speaking out, thinking that this will have a chilling effect on society without first considering that any desired effects will be negated, or worse, amplified due to positive feedback loops, especially in the realm of social behaviour.”
