Revoke S’porean citizenship of those who did not pay respects to Lee Kuan Yew

Revoke S’porean citizenship of those who did not pay respects to Lee Kuan Yew

Since they don’t fancy him, they don’t deserve to live in Singapore.

Dear New Nation,

I read with consternation this letter written by a Straits Times reader: “Take those who disrespect Lee Kuan Yew to task“.

In it, the letter writer wrote that individuals who make disparaging comments about Lee Kuan Yew must be taken to task by raising the issue with the relevant authorities or the individuals’ respective professional or governing bodies as there is zero tolerance.

I feel that this letter is disappointing and not representative of the views of true blue Singaporeans, by and large.

This is because the letter writer did not specifically say what should be done to those Singaporeans who did not go to Parliament House personally to pay their last respects to Lee Kuan Yew lying in state.

Let me quote you some shocking statistics: Over the last few days, there had been an outpouring of grief and long lines of eight-hour waiting times to pay respects to Lee Kuan Yew.

However, as of Saturday, March 28, 2015, about 330,000 people — equivalent to 10 percent of Singapore’s citizen population — have visited Parliament House to pay their respects to Lee Kuan Yew ahead of his cremation, officials said.

Think about this. Let this sink in.

This means that up to 90 percent of people in Singapore have failed to pay their last respects to Lee Kuan Yew.

90 PERCENT.

This is unacceptable.

Who are these people? Who do they think they are? Or rather, who do they think they can be without Lee Kuan Yew?

It is clear as day to me that this widespread absenteeism must be nipped in the bud.

I strongly urge the authorities to weed out these heretics and put them on a boat at the earliest hour and drive them away from Singapore into the ocean where they can be fed to the fishes.

Revoke their citizenship as they clearly do not appreciate it.

If the authorities do not swiftly act on this complaint, I will have no choice but to take matters into my own hands and seek my own resolution.

Which is to write an angry letter to the Straits Times, which I have full confidence they will publish because they publish anything, and just you wait and see.

Yours sincerely,
A Singaporean Patriot (Non-heretic)

 

Lee Kuan Yew deserves our respect, especially if you disagree with him:

All the online abuse over the years misled the government into believing LKY is unpopular.

After years of abuse by online sites such as The Real Singapore, The Online Citizen and Temasek Review Emeritus casting aspersions on his integrity, the Singapore government announced today that they were taken aback by how much Singaporeans actually still admire, respect and care for Lee Kuan Yew.

This after tens of thousands of Singaporeans rushed to be the first to queue up to pay their last respects to the first prime minister of Singapore lying in state at the Parliament House.

This caused the line to pay respects to extend to several kilometres and visiting hours to be extended to 24 hours.

Hen Ai Ni, a government spokesperson, said he was shocked to see the groundswell of support given the rise of abrasive online speech: “Due to the rise of social media in recent years, we were under the impression that Lee Kuan Yew is highly unpopular as we have seen a lot of derogatory content put out abusing him.”

“This has caused the government to underestimate the amount of support and respect Lee Kuan Yew can still extract from the populace.”

“Because if you based your understanding on what people might be feeling about him from reading online websites like TRS, TOC and TRE, you’d think no one would show up to pay their respects.”

“But we’re so wrong based on what we are seeing today.”

At press time, Singaporeans said these websites can still operate because since they have proven to be not representative of the views on the ground, they also generally demonstrate a failure to influence the population-at-large.
