Je Suis Amos

video

Contrary to popular misconception, the word liberally peppered in his powerful diatribe is not of Anglo-Saxon origin. The f-word is of Germanic origin, related to Dutch, German, and Swedish words for "to strike" and "to move back and forth." If you were embarrassed, you will definitely flush red in the face at the explicit reference to procreative activity in this historic uttering in the staid house of parliament:
"Repression, Sir, is a habit that grows. I am told it is like making love - it is always easier the second time! The first time there may be pangs of conscience, a sense of guilt. But once embarked on this course with constant repetition you get more and more brazen in the attack. "

And there was this reference to a religious figure that could be discomfiting. Francis Seow must have been similarly disturbed by the dubious boast of one former politician, one decidedly no longer with us today, when he was speaking at an election rally in Cheng San. Something to the effect that, in the course of human history, only one person can claim to be able to rise from the dead.

More than one person was upset when same said expired politician used the word "Repent" with identical bold audacity at Aljunied.

There will be others with differing reactions to the young man's unpleasant truths, notably the grassroots leader honoured by Lim Swee Say with a Long Service Award. One who seems to have a fetish for the things he can get away with, in a particular the genital mutilation intents he had in mind for a little boy's pee-pee.

    LKY famous quote "I always try to be correct. Not politically correct".

    So young amos may be irreverent, rude or disrespectful, but how is that a crime? He is merely continuing LKY's legacy as we are constantly reminded now.

    Or does his legacy means - defame, sue, libel, ban, jail etc the whole nine yard , all over again?

    1. How refreshing!

  4. Jason Tan alias Cookie, this being holee holy week in more ways than one, if you are a true Christian, please stop all the vulgarities and threats. Moreover you are a grassroots leader old enough to be this kid's father, so please show respect to your deceased leader. This obsession with the male genital seems to be rife among the MIWs. Jeeze.

    1. There's no way any church in Singapore will accept Jason Tan as a member. He's just playing the religious card.

    2. Usually when someone mention about dick cutting and all...it means the person is so self concious of his small dick so must yell more to make his "dick" bigger....pathetic...and lame.

  6. How is Amos different from Reuban Wang?

    The latter said f#*@ you many times and the family got a moralistic parenting lessons from Teo Chee Hean.

    Amos just said it to LKY. He may have unfortunately used a religion head as a bad analogy, but can you really be locked up for defaming dead figures?!

    Old epoch over? New era you said?

  7. Wah lau eh. Simisai-also-call-mata.

    What happens to the preaching of love and tolerance? Love thy brothers?

    When superman Lee Ka Shing puts Buddhism & Bullets in one inappropriate sentence, you don't hear people baying for his blood and calling for more repressive laws, like they are on some kind of unthinking auto pilot.

    Talk about real compassion.

  8. That was really good isn't it, coming from such a youngster?

    Yeah, it's about time we change for the better. A GOOD change for the better. PAP has been fooling us for so many years and it is about time we put a stop to all this fooling and manipulating.

  9. Given the group lynching that is going on against this young kid in local social media, the Singapore society needs to reflect on the Charlie Hebdo incident in Paris, France. You were never sympathetic to those people who were massacred. You were the terrorists!

  10. That Cookie masquerades as a Christian. What can one really expect from such monster when The ONE he worships threatens the infidels with knuckle dusters to meet HIM in some culvert?

    Saycheese

  11. The way the youngster talked does he not resemble LKY in his younger days? If he is going to be jailed, what about LKY's verbal threats to so many people especially those constituents in Aljunied?

    1. First day of post-LKY era, this boy surely start the day strong !!

      Let me invoke the spirits of LKY-ism as is very fashionable all of a sudden.

      As ah gong would say - look beyond form and look for the substance. It doesn't matter if the message is nasty or not. If a mass murderer repeats the value of Pi, that does not make it wrong because the message carrier is evil,or let alone, a loud whiny weasely big baby.

  12. For a 17 years old, he has the political consciousness, the courage and the technical savvy that not many people of this age or older has.
    I do not understand why he need to be arrested?
    For expressing an opinion?
    If any action has to be taken, it must taken on the grass root leader for behaving in a manner not befitting of a community leader.

  13. 20 reports lodged against a 17yo harmless rant.

    How many reports have been lodged against an adult who threaten to maim the boy? Errrr..I mean, is everyone else missing the harassment act that could be applied on a supposedly long outstanding service community leader who do first aid ?

    Oh , what an irony.

  14. Well well...there you have it. LKY's legacy =

    We have been richer as a nation, but emptier as a people.

  15. He didn't stir up any religious shit! His was a critic of two men who he thought were quite similar in character. Isn't this considered fair opinion? What can the SPF conjure up to charge him with? Maybe, have the two gentlemen sue him? One is on record as able to resurrect himself, but is unlikely to since he is also reknowned for his forgiving nature. The other is vindictive, but his ability to resurrect is an unknown. A second resurrection, anyone? Some believers in the grassroots may hope for it considering the godlike adulation they had of him.

  17. too many people are brainwashed. they are like parrots repeating whats often written and reported in the media. I can understand if they have political ambitions but so many of them are just regular people. its so sad.

  18. Cookie Tan: Do you represent how Christians think? If so, I will make sure my children do not associate with people like you. You are cruel and violent in thoughts and deeds.

  19. Isn't him a 100% local born talent our gahmen was looking for? We should be glad to have such a talent in our little island. He was recognized for his talent as a 13 years old schoolboy when he was awarded a top prize by the New Paper.

    Yes, why is SPF/PAP so quiet on Cookie Tan for making a vulgar threat to this boy and an insult to all Singaporeans.

  20. On 23rd May 2014 the Vatican’s split personality was put to a new test when a UN committee released the findings of an inquiry into the Holy See’s compliance with the Convention against Torture, which it signed in 2002. Most of the questions put to the pope’s representative, Archbishop Silvano Tomasi, in the public hearings were about the sexual abuse of children and adolescents by Catholic clerics.
    Is Jason Tan the grassroots leader a Catholic cleric?
