Bad Behaviour

When TIME's Zoher Adoolcarim and Hannah Beech interviewed Lee Hsien Loong for the "Singapore's Next Story" article (3 August 2015 issue), they did not shy off from asking about the conviction of a 16-year old and the litigation against a blogger. While the Straits Times write-up produced edited extracts, and quoted from the online transcript and hard copy, one important line was missed out:
"In this case, he's a 16-year old, so you have to deal with it appropriately because of a young age."

It would appear to all and sundry that the hue and cry from local and foreign human rights activists, in particular the United Nations Human Rights Office for South-east Asia (OHCHR), have come to nought. Specifically, OHCHR had expressed concern that the criminal sanctions considered in this case "seem disproportionate and inappropriate in terms of the international protections for freedom of expression and opinion". And it matters not to the prime minister that Singapore had signed off on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

To understand the kind of horrible person that approves of the traumatic detention of a child and cruel treatment in a mental institute, one has to appreciate his ideas of bad behavior. When asked if he were ever a rebellious teenager, he gave this notion of unpardonable sin: "I never had long hair or wore bell-bottoms."

One veteran human rights activist was dripping with sarcasm when she put the status quo in context: "We are overly respectful of our politicians. Our laws demand that of us." Read and weep.

  1. LHL is criticising everything that his father did - from racist remarks to smearing other people names. The difference is, the horrible man is spared while Amos and Roy is unncessarily punished.

    1. LHL is a retarded because not only he is criticising his horrible father , he also criticising his horrible self. Like father like son.

      "In an interview with Time magazine, published on Thursday (Jul 23), the current Prime Minister said: "I mean, he's my father. I grew up learning from him, I worked under him when he was Prime Minister, with him in Cabinet these last 30 years until he died. So, it'd bound to be a very deep influence."

    2. Apple does not fall far from the tree.

      I feel sorry that he is not following his real passion but his fathers footstep.

    3. No lah, he is justifying his natural aristocracy, having earned and learned from the horri..honorable man.

  2. He does what he does because he can... with impunity.
    Under the aura of racial riots, economic collapse, bad governance.

    In the absence of natural calamities, the spectre of social chaos fits well... your wives will be maids, the rubbish left uncollected and very corrupt ministers will do do you in.

    Including a teenager with long hair and a video camera... sans bell bottoms.

  3. Told you so. He never had a childhood and neither is he hip.
    He won't understand wha tit s like to be creative and irreverent to enjoy your youth and just be. In his notion of utopia, the creativity is dead. That's why Steve jobs would have been torched alive and the world will never see Apple.

    God knows how many creative souls and brilliant artist and entrepreneurs have been snuffed out by these technocrats. If every book smart scholar should become leader, Steven hawking would not have existed and taught the world the beauty of Cosmology. In our universe, Steven hawking would be languishing in a HDB flat waiting for social service to come give him goodies once every 50 yrs and be told that his life is a loser. And when trampoline comes, he could even get on it and make a jump.

    1. Only his viciousness was allowed unrestrained because he was a higher mortal, redefined as natural aristocrat by his son. And all those who object to their aristocracy are naturally trampled to demonstrate their elite political stature.

  5. Last year, Arsyad, a 24-year-old satay seller, was arrested for editing Jokowi's face into pornographic pictures and uploading them onto his Facebook account. Jokowi forgave this man who insulted him, and asked the National Police to suspend Arsyad's detention.

    The Law Minister Mr K Shanmugam said, “But justice can be tempered with mercy and where appropriate, offenders should be given a second chance.” It is also necessary to exercise your powers "within certain constraints" as a prime minister of a country. How "appropriate" is it to go after a blogger to destroy him and get your pound of flesh, even after he had apologised and offered compensation (derisory it is called)? Was it also "appropriate" the way the 16-year-old was disproportionately dealt? Doesn't that make someone, not only a horrible person, but a monster? Respect, and by extension your "standing", has to be earned, unless you are an Aristocrat.

    1. PAP is no different from a rapist who rape and then told the victim about moral educaton that raping is bad, and yet still going around bonking more like nobody business.

    2. He screws you because he has your interest at heart and is doing it for your good. Increasing GST is to help the poor and bringing in foreigners to increase population to 6.9 million to create good jobs for citizens. Oh, the Ponzi called CPFis what his wife use to gamble so that you cannot fritter away your pension.

  6. If an Asian leader can't maintain his standing he will soon be gone...

    Is true that. The last time a leader can't maintain his standing was due to Parkinson's disease. Many human crutches were needed to keep him standing. And soon, he was gone. Probably too, because people could not stand him any further and the universe has a way of honoring the heavens mandate.

  8. Can someone ask him why is it that while he demands 1st World pay for himself and his team members, why is he denying Singaporeans the same kind of human rights enjoyed by citizens in 1st World Countries?

    Why is it when it involves his own personal rights he is entilted to enjoy world class pay that even surpass the level enjoyed by world class political leaders? But when it comes to our own citizens' rights especially in freedom of speech, freedom of the press, equality in freedom to love anyone for the citizens, it is nowhere near the level of that of 1st World countries?

    Why be such a pariah leader or real hypocrite in the eyes of so many of your fellow citizens?

  9. the critics know they don't always have a good argument and prefer to do this by whispers and nudges rather than direct, open debate". -

    Tsk tsk..why didn't the PM open up the data and let the people directly scrutinized the facts and debate it then? For a subject as important as CPF, he chose instead to obfuscate and opaque the system even further. I doubt Roy was alleging corruption but the reckless investments of our pension with questionable results. Yet he felt the best way is to take offense , sue and settle by court with highest punitive damages demanded.

    Well, his very manner of bad behaviors where people take to the slightest offence and decide simisai also call police so that the person can be locked up and punished is clearly being adopted and mirrored by his peasants. Including a fucking t shirt these days is also considered an offence ! He was tutored well by his horrible father, and the people should ask if they need another era of LKY 3.0 that will only perpetuate to extreme intolerance, conveniently used a s a mean to stifle our social And civic progress.

    1. I hope all the MSM pls heed his advice and have a national debate for campaigning for a change. The PM wants his open debate and the voters want them too. Don't be a coward, and the electorate have rights to question him on policies beyond local issues.

  10. "In this case, he's a 16-year old, so you have to deal with it appropriately because of a young age."

    In this case, he considers imprisoning and torturing the 16-year old "appropriate". What does he consider appropriate punishment for a 18-year old then? I'm speechless.

    1. Age appropriate in this regime is when
      - 12 yo signed their lives away on 2800m high mountain
      - 16 yo fouled mouth tactless teenager got 50+. Days incarcerated in IMH and remand for evaluation
      - 18 yo conscripted to 2 years of national service for wasting time and learning to be subjugated and obedient mindlessly.

  11. The kid is a publicity mad, arrogant and vulgar nut who dug himself deeper and deeper.

    We need capable opposition, not trouble makers.

  12. The PM is still dreaming of the so called " Oriental Gentleman " ethos. He should first start to put right his priority. Singaporeans or Foreigners interests first? He did say Singaporeans first but his policies and actions had all been pro foreigners and almost anti Singaporeans.

    1. Why do you even doubt Pinky's hypocrisy ? Just look at his action rather than just by his words. His action is telling and say it all , no need for his highfalutin words of politically corrected statement from a spoilt brat.
