S’poreans tell The Real Singapore editors: ‘We’ve got freedom of speech & freedom of compassion’

Posted on 04 May 2015

But you want freedom of speech? Ok, here’s your freedom of speech.

Singaporeans from all walks of life who are allergic to bullshit have come out strongly to send a message to the two The Real Singapore editors, 26-year-old Singaporean Yang Kaiheng and 24-year-old Australian Ai Takagi.

This after Yang, who was revealed to be a Singaporean holding on to Australian Permanent Residency status, had his application to leave Singapore for Australia approved by the Singapore courts on compassionate grounds.

One Singaporean, Nina Gan, said Singapore has shown exceptional tolerance for the duo’s antics over the years, especially now: “For all of his whinging and bitching about Singapore, comparing us to North Korea or some dictatorship, the courts and judge here still showed him sympathy to return to Australia to visit his ailing father, even though he is deemed a grave flight risk.”

“This just goes to show that at the end of the day, Singapore has freedom of compassion.”

“Actually, come to think about it, Singapore also has freedom of speech too. This is something The Real Singapore likes to go on and on about, having the right to air your views?”

“Well, since they want freedom of speech, here’s proof that Singapore has freedom of speech. This is how freedom of speech looks like visually, thank you very much.”
