Uncle Leong’s journey to Calvary

Mr Leong Sze Hian

Last Thursday, I had lunch with some friends near Arab Street. Looking out of the window, I tot I saw Uncle Leong walking on the street below. My friends said it was him.

He looked depressed and walked as though he was carrying a heavy burden: a cross perhaps? Last Thursday was after all Maundy Thursday, or Holy Thursday, the day before Good Friday.

I tot of him carrying a cross on his shoulders on the way to his crucifixion when I read this yesterday (Feel free to skip to my further tots after the bit about Leong: writer’s a windbag who also suffers from verbal diarrhea):

This is what Singaporeans do not realise

I was sued by the Singapore prime minister, fired from my job for political reasons and later the police ransacked my home for supporting the opposition.

I was made out to be a bad person.

Then in 2017, academic Donald Low was threatened with his job.

Then last year, the prime minister sued Leong Sze Hian.

Then, the police also ransacked Terry Xu’s home.

Are all these bad people too?

After I’ve been sued, sacked, charged, had my home ransacked and persecuted from 2014 to 2016, I have since then seen more and more Singaporeans go through what I did.

With each of them, I understand their pain and the injustice they had to go through.

Because it was what I had to go through too. From once being valued at work and school, I became disavowed.

But then, the people I mentioned above aren’t as bad as the person I am. They are people who continue to be respected in what they do. Yet they have had their lives hurt and slammed by the PAP.

They won’t be the last. I’ve seen people been hurt by the PAP every year since I was persecuted, and I know it will keep going on.

Then it reminded me, before I was persecuted, I had thought about the “troublemakers” before me. Why are they so stupid to get into trouble? Why can’t they do things in other ways?

Why did they have to get themselves sued by the prime minister? Why did they have to get themselves jailed? Opposition politicians like JBJ and Chee Soon Juan, lawyers like Soh Lung Teo, church workers like Vincent Cheng why must they find trouble with the government?

But then one day, after I was sued, someone asked the same question to me, someone very close.

Why must you go and find trouble with the government, she asked me.

And then I became the “troublemaker”.

It was funny listening to the “troublemaker” label used on me. I remembered that when I attended talks after I was sued, people saw me and thought I was going to start throwing chairs. The look in their eyes, it was funny.

But of course, I asked serious questions. You can ask Tharman at one of the CPF talks I attended. He answered back quite stably too. Well, he wasn’t threatened, was he?

But after going through all these, knowing how the government can come after you and make you a such a bad person, even beyond what you’ve ever known of yourself, and to even make me question myself, this made me finally understand what these other “troublemakers” were going through, and who they are.

When I first met Vincent Cheng, he was such a soft-spoken and sincere person, when I first met Soh Lung, such a passionate and helpful person! Chee Soon Juan also came across very smart and measured.

After going through what I have, I began to understand the lives of others who had gone through what I have before me.

And I also understand the pain of others who have gone after me. And I still see people being hurt by the PAP year after year. People who have to leave the country, people who have to try to fight to clear their name, people who had live their lives honestly.

You don’t really get it until you become one of the people where overnight, you are given a new label, where you become a criminal simply for standing up for what you believe in.

Does it make me angry? Maybe. Does it make me sad? Maybe. But much of this is all in the past now.

But it does make me wonder when Singaporeans will ever realise their power. It does make me angry that Singaporeans do not want to think about this.

If I do not think about society, nothing will happen to me. Exactly what they wanted.

To keep you quiet. If you keep quiet, I don’t have to change policies to make lives better.

Do you remember the story of the bundle of sticks? When the father in Aesop’s Fables got his sons to break the sticks individually, the sticks broke easily, but when he got his sons to break the sticks when bundled together, they could not.

What Singaporeans do not realise that together you are the bundle of stick, and you will always be.

The PAP takes a stick out now and then from this bundle, break it, and the rest of you sticks shudder.

But what you do not realise is that when you shudder, you are shuddering with the other sticks next to you. You are in that bundle of sticks, and that makes you strong.

They cannot break all of you, so they break one stick now and then. And if you stop letting them break you one by one, you can stop them.

This is what Singaporeans do not realise. You are powerful and you are strong.

I wish you would remember that.

In addition to the burden of a defamation suit, Uncle Leong is also carrying the burden of the BS of Lim Tean, his lawyer. The legal basis of what Lim Tean is accusing PM of doing (that the libel suit is an abuse of court process) has been frowned upon in English courts. Yet Lim Tean thinks our court of appeal will agree with his line of reasoning.

Christ rose on Easter Sunday and is now sitting on a throne on the right side of god the father in heaven. Somehow I doubt Uncle Leong will escape as lightly as Christ did, even if he has a son of Ah Kong rooting for him: only the younger son leh. But them miracles do happen and if anyone deserves a miracle, it’s Uncle Leong for juz sharing an article (Albeit one that he should have known was fake and defamatory). Btw, why is Ah Kong’s daughter not publicly rooting for Uncle Leong?

    “Christ rose on Easter Sunday and is now sitting on a throne on the right side of god the father in heaven.”

    Always remember that the living eternal God you are referring to is spelt with a capital G. Small g are the man made demi-gods from man’s creation. As they can’t create like the living creator God you are referring to.

    Whoa! Didnt know that CI still has a heart and can talk like a human.

    Don’t play play. Karma is real. You can be a Xtian and choose not to believe but truly no one can escape The Law of Cause and Effect. Everything happens for a reason. Just wait and see how God will punish the evil people who repeatedly destroyed innocent people’s life.

    if you want to serve as PUBLIC SERVANTS,you must be READY TO EMBRACE CRITICISMS and if you think you have been wronged,PROVED OTHERWISE NOT BY BULLYING AND DESTRUCTION?

    OUR PUBLIC SERVANTS THINK THEY ARE GODS N DEMI-GODS.

    You are most blasphemous by comparing Leong with Jesus! If you do not know the significance of Good Friday and Easter, I suggest you stop making a fool of yourself!
    Remember, the devil can also quote scriptures when he tried to tempt Jesus in the wilderness!

    Leong Kor,

    Be assure that Heaven and Barn Owl and 30%(and hopefully some of 34,000 HighFlux investors) are PRAYING 24/7/365 for you. In the end, the GOOD will always TRIUMPH OVER the EVIL, esp the FamiLEE DieNasty!

  • Young SIN Generation:

    It is really heartening Singaporean young generation is taking on a different platform in seeking their rights n more heartening to see support arising from all sectors of the society. The wave of alert n chage it must has cross the Straits. Miss Monica Baey will be remembered for her courage, her thoughts for her fellow students n the correct attitude that there is nothing to be ashamed off as she is not culprit of the crime the other is n should be ashamed n punished. The courage to get the bureaucrats to be transparent in their job n be responsible n accountable. Singaporeans esp those blind supporters of the evil n getting more evil in advocating greed, hungry n aggressiveness to take the cue from Miss Baey n be courageous to be different n that human dignity n souls cannot n must not be humilated by the Power. When the Power assumes such privilege, they have committed their political suicide n should be discarded and as Miss Baey rightly reason her decision is prompted by the possible repeat of what happens to her on her fellow students. Same as in political safety. What the power did to its critic to guard their greed n power, it will come to u should the same fate befallen on u, your children n grandchildren n you have no window to open as the the power have sealed them all just becos you r not there to defend your rights n those trying to r demolished mercilessly n illegals r legalized to protect themselves n advance their greeds.
    Again though it is just a uni disciplinary case, the mentality n work ethos have infused the entire island. The citizens support is encouraging n gives hope to revive the island to its once tranquility, safe n enclaved with genuine kindness n mutual respects which unfortunity was destroyed by the greed, more greed n more greed …
