PAP cannot be anything more than an extreme right-wing party

Whomever is writing the PAP scripts and trying to change the narrative for their upcoming election campaign obviously didn’t get the memo that Singaporeans are now highly educated, can think critically and pay attention to the evidence in front of them and are not so easily swayed by hollow words or “clever” positioning.

To suggest the PAP is anything but an extreme Right-Wing party is what I would call Fake News indeed. Let’s look at the definition of Fascism straight from the source.

“Fascism is a form of radical authoritarian ultra nationalism, characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition and strong regimentation of society and of the economy, which came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe.”

Is that not a clear description of how the PAP runs Singapore?

Other characteristics of a Fascist Government include control of the economy through Government Linked companies and privatisation of essential national services and assets to buy the patronage of the rich and industrialists, exactly what the PAP does.

And of course, to a certain class symbology is very important, especially among the aristocracy, and we know the PAP style themselves as ‘Singapore’s natural Aristocracy”.

With that in mind look at their party symbol and its fascist roots and then hazard a guess as to their political ideology.

I encourage all Singaporeans to take their rhetoric and propaganda with a pinch of salt and look closely at the underlying nature of all their policies and especially the real and hard effects they are having on most of our population.

If we want to make Singapore a home gain, run it like a country and have space for all to thrive and prosper and not just the state sanctioned few then we must reject extreme right wing politics and remove the “self-styled” aristocratic PAP and replace them with a government that is one with the people and puts them first and does not stand above the people and puts control and profit first.

  • Boh Kia See:

    This is a good piece of information provided by the writer. I think a lot of Singaporeans will agree with it.

    Citizens got to realise that PAP is not “the world” and the world is not PAP. PAP also do not have a monopoly on ideas, talent, and dedication. In fact, you can see that the PAP is bereft of new ideas and is simply tilling the same ground in the same way.

    The PAP is obsessed with control because with control comes power and profit.
    To keep control there is always a need to provide a show of force. Hence we see an overkill situation with police running around within a condominium complex to track an alleged rapist. This is a show of force for observing citizens on how housing blocks can be controlled.

    Citizens should not be afraid to speak up simply to set a limit for the bully boys in white if nothing else.

    Opposition parties should gear up now to walk the ground to ensure that their message gets through.

  • Haigen-diaz:

    Discussions about fascism often become mired in how broadly or how narrowly the term should be used. The problem you have, is that most voters, regardless of IQ or level of education, are driven by very narrow and immediate motives. If you are really worried about fascism, you had better deal with the gross economic inequality in this country. Today’s Singapore looks a lot like an inchoate fascist state. I think that we ought to stick to using authoritarianism and using both the Fascism and Communism of the 20th century as historical examples, because ultimately Fascism and Communism are artifacts, but authoritarianism type of government that is alive and can grow out of any political or ideological movement. Readers really need to go back and study the rise of Nazism in Germany. Hitter came to power with less of a mandate than PAP, in free elections, skyrocketing from 2% to over 30% through the clever use of propaganda, media manipulation, and donations from wealthy industrialists/banksters cultivated by Goering and Goebbels, at time when Germany was at least a politically polarized as we are now. Fascism, or any other tyranny, requires the cooperation and participation of a whole lot of otherwise ordinary people to man the apparatus and agencies of repression. Obtaining such cooperation is accomplished by rewarding the state’s minions, who do the rulers’ dirty work, usually with jobs and other government benefits. Many elements are already there. Seems to me that a majority of the general public is ignorant of it, willfully ignorant of it, or welcome it. Which explains the current mess.

  • Fascist Hitler:

    Fascism is a historical term that denotes hard right wing authoritarianism, but in all honesty whether authoritarianism is politically positioned on the left or right the actual form of government is the same.
    Cult of personality, degradation of institutions that challenge the hegemony of the authoritarian, assault on the truth and the freedom of information, and the demand for loyalty.
    All of these were shared traits of both of the worst examples of authoritarianism on both the left and right, Hitler’s Germany and Stalin’s Soviet Union.

  • Vote wisely:

    PM Lee has aptly declared PAP a centrist party, central for the rich.
    Medical fees of government hospitals rise for the general population when that of private hospital rise.
    The rich can afford riders and do not have to pay a single cent for hospitalisation, come 2019, they need to co-share a max of $3,000. Is this going to stop them from over-consuming, and the doctors from over-treting and over-charging.
    Insurance companies raise premium for their integrated policies, so do our medishield premium for ordinary folks.
    When the pay of the top doctors and other professionals rise, PAP ministers pay pegged to the top earners rise.
    HDB flats rise when private properties of the rich rise.
    But as our flats get older, its value drops until zero when the lease expires while the private property owners become richer enbloc’ing their old estates.

  • Show Of Force ?:

    Yes they sent a battalion and few police armored vehicles to catch one unarmed rapist in the condo compound. Indeed better than a Media Corps drama.

    Against Little India thousands of rioters they hide themselves or escaped quickly for fear of death. Cannot blame them cos they are only earning low monthly salary and not worth to sacrifice their lives. Their million dollar officers hid themselves in civilian clothes also fearing death.

    I wonder how the regular police force (probably 20,000 men from the Special Command Operation, Malaysians citizens from CISCO and AETOS etc) would cope with the one million of armed reservists if one day they decide to fight against the bullying authorities. Probably they would shed their uniforms and merge with the reservists.

    No use cos the reservists have been trained by the SAF and we do not fear death.

    So do not push us to a corner or else we will be willing to die.

It don’t believe in a welfare state (unlike the far-left). It believe in selective privatizations (unlike the far-right who demand no state control or the far-left who want nationalization). In all, the PAP has wide appeal to people of all political affiliations, and most importantly, to people of all backgrounds. This is the reason the PAP has done so well and will continue to do so for a long time.

    pap is a political party.

    pap is not much different from WP SDP and such. only thing different is pap happens to form government, at the moment. while WP and SDP and such are not.

    pap knows all political parties need money to function.

    pap abuses power for political advantage by channeling citizens’ money to pap PA for its political purpose. with a pliant parleeement, black is also white so nothing much can happen even if sue pap for such abuse of power.

    with a pliant parleeement, even 200m is not within 200m. INDIAN is actually malay. and many such illegal anywhere else which are legal here, thanks to a pliant parleeement.

    only SG has GRC. Other country is one-man-one-vote-for-one-candidate.

    When other country choose far, near, left, right or centre party, it is a reflection of the will of its people.

    If PAP has “wide appeal”, is it enough for one-man-one-vote-for-one-candidate?

    Without GRC, can PAP still do well and “appeal to people of all background”?

  • Rabble-rouser:

    Right wing, Left wing or Chicken wing! – the PAP isn’t a political idealogy party. They are a hardcore Commercial concern which uses politics as a means for economic control (re: to achieve market dominance) & operates a Crony Capitalist Economy as Central for it’s political survival (Politicizing of the S’pore Economy). Both political affiliation & economic management are in the hands of the PAP mechanism & the participants were so intertwined that the same players wear both hats – as political figures & as economic managers.
    Ask yourself the following:
    * Why certain Industry Leaders (eg. in Construction, Estate Management, Food Courts) were also heavily involved in Grassroots activities;
    * Why GLCs can only recruit top management from S’pore uniform services like SAF, Air Force & the S’pore Navy?;
    * Why were there consistently only a small group of people that constantly reappears as Company Directors in Public Listed Companies leading to the often said remarks that there is a SMALL POOL OF CORPORATE TALENTS in S’pore – You believe that?
    S’pore currently exists in format only to tap into the Globalisation trend & to benefit from China’s riches from their Export-oriented activities (re: GDP Growth methodology). But as I read the current Geo-Political developments, I worry about how S’pore will survive into a changing eco-system where the embers of Globalisation are dying off (from Trump’s MAGA INITIATIVES) & the US-China spat involving trade, territorial expansion & financial warfare! It can’t be good for S’pore’s future?
    Present-day S’pore has an expensive cost structure due to PAP’s land policy which had escalated the land price thus elevated rents along with it.
    The PAP’s Crony Capitalist Economy had inflated cost of living to new highs that S’pore was ranked the Most Expensive City in the World by EIU for 5 consecutive years running.
    Under the current PAP leadership, S’pore had slowly morphed from an Investment-friendly, business oriented HUB (of the past) to an expensive consumption driven economy of today [YOLO Lifestyle, Conspicuous Consumption, False Prosperity imagery].
    Frankly, most of S’pore’s “Blood, Sweat & Years” (CPF forced savings, past govt surpluses) had been wasted, fritter away & lost in the turbulent investment markets.
    The truth is that S’pore carries a huge External Debt in the books – owing to Foreign Capital Providers & Foreign-sourced investors. They were the ones funding S’pore’s CRAZY RICH ASIANS lifestyles & consumption trend.
    And why the recent prices rises & 2% GST increase only targetted consumers & consumption? Why not tax increases on businesses or wealthy individuals?
