Lee Hsien Yang’s support of Leong Sze Hian

I’m very heartened to learn of Mr Lee Hsien Yang’s good gestures in taking the lead by supporting Mr Leong Sze Hian’s uphill battle of “taking the bull by its horns” as well as litmus testing our justice system here when dealing with such contentious cases.

Of late, we are increasingly witnessing the judiciary being dragged into the arena of politically motivated cases by the ruling party, which is behaving very glittery as election nears and preparation for the succession of their preferred leadership, intensifies!

Ironically, it takes 2 junior Lees to undo a less than ideal system that the Senior Lee created, contributing to today’s deadlock in not only the demolition of 38 Oxley Rd but also the setback in accountability, transparency and a blank cheque to utilise state powers for whatever purpose the select few deem necessary to achieve their agenda.

The elected opposition is useless and powerless in our parliamentary system, while the civil service and the judiciary is beholden to the powers that advices their appointments as admitted by then Chief Justice Wee Chong Jin during cross examination by the late honourable Mr Jeyaratnam. *

If such insanity continues to run amok in the government, it is only a matter of time when law and order breaks down and the stature of the courts will be much diminished in the eyes of the commoners.

No system of economic prosperity can last long if it is built under layers of suppression and oppression, for when those layers that the incumbent is trying to preserve tumbles, there is no telling what the masses will do when they find out the true state their beloved country is in.

    Well said, Judy.

    If the suppression and oppression are not dismantled, the country will be run by dictators like in North Korea.

    Dear Judy,

    Good writing overall, except for two parts, which I will highlight and comment upon.

    You wrote in the 4th paragraph: “The elected opposition is useless and powerless in our parliamentary system.”

    I would say that it is “useless” also because 69.9% of Sinkies are spinelessly useless. Most of the blame should rest with the electorate of infected SSS (Selfish Sinkie Syndromes). Especially in the last GE, where they abandoned the opposition camps en mass and preferred to subscribe to the LIES of the incumbent. In a democracy, it is the electorate that decides who to confer power to, for the duration of the next election term.

    Next, you said in your closing paragraph that “No system of economic prosperity can last long if it is built under layers of suppression and oppression, .., there is no telling what the masses will do when they find out the true state their beloved country is in.”

    I can tell you NOTHING will happen whatsoever because Sinkies with SSS have been very well conditioned to NEVER revolt against oppression. In fact, such Sinkies even condone Oppression & Suppression. Some might even be lovin’ it.

    You simply don’t understand the depths of depravity and apathy that human beings can sink to, when it comes to political systems of oppression.
    Sinkies can and will sink far deeper than you can imagine.

    I give your the shining example of North Korea. You think there is no resistance by the North Korean people to the hellish conditions in their country? So how did they and their country sink to such abject lows, if not by GRADUAL political suppression, and by slowly turning up the heat on the boiling frogs? Ha!

    That is why ridiculous laws are often made which are tolerated and then they get used to it, until eventually, Sikies won’t even be comfortable WITHOUT those oppressive laws.

    Just like the law against chewing gum. You got used to it after 50 years right?
    Then comes “fake news” bans (not that I support fake news) but still we can always rationalize seemingly “good” laws against human freedoms and get used to them.
    Finally, if one day a new law says you must kowtow 3 times to the LEEder, you may also get so used to it that you will simply rationalize it away (like so many Sinkies) that this is normal and even teach your kids this new kow-tow behavior?

    You think Sinkies will not behave likewise or even worse? I can tell you many hopeless Sinkies will even praise and cry for their LEEder, even if he is an evil despot.

    Are you aware that during China’s Cultural revolution in the 60s and early 70s, many children even rat on their own parents “offenses”, just to gain the favor of the political gang?

THAT IS THE ACTIONS OF A COWARD USING DEVIOUS MEANS TO CULL ANY ALTERNATE VIEWS TO his that he disliked. He still died like everyone else. Let him face his maker and see if he will be allowed to argue his cause at all. There are only 2H. One is Heaven for eternal live with Jesus.

  • Selfish Sinkie Syndrome:

    continued….

    So, dear Judy, can you now tell what the masses of Sinkies will do when they find out the true state of their beloved country?

    My answer is NOTHING! Sinkies will do nothing. Ha!

    They will simply rationalize it and get used to it.
    Asians do not have a cultural tradition of democratic rights & freedoms.
    Historically, East Asian societies is always about Obedience and respect for authority. Look at China, Japan, Koreans etc. it is all about hierarchy and strict conformance to the standard behaviors of the times.

    That is why many Asians simply cannot understand why Americans and their NRA (National Rifle Association) hang onto their guns so tightly. Despite all the crimes used with guns and the senseless shootings in their schools etc., they are still adamant that their gun rights be protected. They know from experience and partly due to their fluke of history, that only an armed citizenry can stop the insidious encroachment of oppressive political regimes.

    I am not saying the American systems of broad armed citizenry is right or wrong, but clearly one has to ask why America is still called a land of the Free and the land of economic opportunity with the best university of learning & innovation for the whole world?

    I would argue that is also one of the reasons why East Asians fell backwards and could not innovate faster than Western societies.

    East Asians (i.e. Chinese, Japanese stock) is statistically shown to be of higher average IQs. According to studies by Western (white Caucasian) scientists, Ashkenazi Jews are top No.1 in average IQ, then comes East Asians, then 3rd is Caucasian whites, Hispanics, Africans and so on…

    So, why East Asians, being more intelligent, lost out in Science & Technology and innovations in all areas to the Western world during the last 300 years?

    It is because East Asians obey authority too much and therefore, could not innovate and could not think beyond the constraints of their existing systems. If the Emperor declares the Earth is FLAT, no Asian scientist or thinker will dare to object. Hence, no progress for that society.

    Compare this to Western cultures, where in 1600, Giordano Bruno was willing to be burned at the stake by the Catholic Church, for proposing that the Earth is not the center of the solar system.

    I’m not saying we have to be burned alive for new ideas or for society to progress, but obviously, the existing East Asian mindsets (such as what LKY called the Confucian values set) is NOT a good framework for social and scientific breakthroughs. It may be good for political “stability” and social harmony but in a fast changing world, stability may be just another word for obsolescence.

  • opposition dude:

    I wonder if uncle Leong’s court case might be conveniently delayed to after the GE since Hsien Yang has a big part in this now?

    Goondu Loong would not want to make too much fuss over this one seeing how things ended between them all over their father’s house. Better to wait until after the GE before things get out of hand for the goondu one you know.

    And I hope Hsien Yang does something major in the upcoming GE too, we really need a strong wildcard to scare goondu Loong shitless.

    Perhaps Hsien Yang and Dr Tan Cheng Bock standing as independent candidates?

  • LOUD & CLEAR MESSAGE FOR PINKY:

    Let’s send Pinky a clear and unequivocal message, that we the people are fed-up with his abuse of power and bullying of citizens. This we can do by rallying behind Leong Sze Hian, giving him moral and cash support in his fight for ALL citizens’ right of free expression. If thousands of us donate, as much as we can, and spiral the total donations to over say $500K, then the message thus send will be loud and clear.

    Its in the 1986 Committee of Inquiry Report that inquired into the allegation of executive interference in Subordinate Court Judiciary. CJ Wee made the admission while he was cross examined by the late JBJ either on day 3 or day 4. There should be a record in the National Library unless it has been taken off or erased or burned or formatted.

    Hope this helps.

  • Privileged:

    Ahh!, Qualified Privileged statements as protected under section 11 and 12 of the Defamation Act.

    TRE Tech: Its in the 1986 Committee of Inquiry Report that inquired into the allegation of executive interference in Subordinate Court Judiciary. CJ Wee made the admission while he was cross examined by the late JBJ either on day 3 or day 4. There should be a record in the National Library unless it has been taken off or erased or burned or formatted.

    Hope this helps.

    Tech: I think you meant absolute privilege (made in a judicial proceedings). But then, it can also be argued that Section 11&12 protects the person saying it but not the person repeating it, no? Then the person repeating it will counter that she was merely stating a matter of fact that CJ Wee had admitted that during the COI.

    Anyway, If the powers that be wants to sue the former CJ or the repeater, they will be sued and found guilty, regardless got Section 11 or 12 or not. Maybe they don’t have to use criminal defamation to sue, can use contempt of court since judiciary was mentioned and contempt charge is so vague that it covers anything said/written under the Sun and Moon.

    It all boils down to: Laws are subject to interpretation, so whatever the laws say doesn’t matter. Its what the current AG or Judge says that matter and is final.

    Reference: Former AG on 200 meters. :(

    IMHO of course. What do you think?

  • No Excuse:

    This goes to say that;

    If you have not “shown” to have taken “similar” action to Protect and Safeguard your reputation on the offenders, then;

    Either OR,

    a) you have no means to repudiate offenders claims OR
    b) you have no reputation to be protected OR
    c) you have no genuine intention to safeguard OR
    d) ???? OR OR

    then;

    You do not abuse the court proceedings by picking and choosing on weaker subjects for motives other than claiming to be soiled.

    Any other claims on “difficulties” will not be acceptable as an “excuse”.
