Singaporeans overwhelming trust PAP govt over fake news bill

That’s my take after

Nas: 2000, Terry: 200+

The KPKBing about the so-called draconian effects of the pending law on fake news in cyberspace and social media is really, juz “noise”, if only 200 plus S’poreans turned up at TOC’s rally against the bill last Sunday.

NAS’s crowd the previous Saturday at his”S’pore’s a great place” would amount to 24,000 in a city in the UK or 120,000 in the US, while TOC’s crowd last Sunday amounted to 2,400 or 12,000 in the US. (How calculations made: Pink Dot: Why was govt spooked?/ Pastor Khong try matching the numbers)

The masses have spoken by their absence, voting with their absent feet: so progressives and their cybernut allies should sit down and shut up. .

So cut out the BS, anti-PAP progressives and their anti-PAP cybernut allies, especially those ranting on TRE, social media and TOC.

As I wrote last Sunday before Terry’s do:

Whatever, if the progressives and their cybernut allies cannot muster a decent crowd of about 1,000 people, time to sit down and shut up, and stop talking down to the 70% of the voters who vote for the PAP at GEs. They should be trying to persuade those who voted for Tan Cheng Bock at last PE (35% of voters) that they are right, rather than juz diss the PAP.

The law of politics:

You either have the numbers or you shut up.

(Tito Mboweni, ANC freedom fighter who became cental bank governor, finance minister and corporate fat cat)

Nas v Terry Xu

No wonder TOC jealous of Nas: TOC, cybernuts juz plain jealous isit?. But to be fair to TOC: TOC recovering from its anti-Nas fever.

Btw, Nas not only FT who thinks S’pore is a great place.

  • opposition dude:

    Aiyoh uncle Cynical, what is wrong with the 30% making noise about both the 70% and PAP? Democracy, freedom of speech and all that right? So what is the problem?

    Turnout only 200 but so what? Voting last election 70/30 and PAP makes life harder for 100% of voters still like that mah.

    Live and let die lah uncle. You like telling the so called cybernuts don’t do this don’t do that how about you take your own advice?

  • Not so fast.:

    CI is really talking crap. Singaporean do not need to go to Hong Lim Park to show support because they can see all the speeches on YouTube. They can watch it at home in airconditioned comfort.

    Anyway, there is no point preaching to the converted.

    Instead of going to Hong Lim Park I spend my time convincing my family members and friends to vote for regime change at the coming GE.

    @TRE; Anyway to inform earlier on any Hong Lim Park activity. The last Sunday on “Fake News”, I read it on the Sunday when Brad Bowyer posted an article on Saturday.

    I missed that one. I always like to attend whenever there was some thing on.

    I vaguely remembered reading it somewhere that there’s a protest on that day but when I googled to confirm, couldn’t find anything about it. I thought I’d mistaken, so I missed it too.

    The organizer(s) took the trouble to hold it but did little to inform the public. How sad.

    When an investor gets cynical it gets farting close to Gorilla, the nepotically self appointed stenched with self n self negative investor which can only fool the senile faling wiseman whom Gorilla image adored for his hands n feet in places he should’t be! A plp is always a plp like the LKY well gripped wet nurse whose length of plp service has thickened his face skin that he lost his capacity to be ashamed when told by DHS to FO.

  • Buscrasher:

    News r made up of words.

    So just prohibit use of certain words.

    Example words like dictator?

    Just symbolise the word “dictator” same like a “no smoking sign.”

    Question for CI:
    A question for CI: If Singaporeans overwhelmingly trust PAP why is there a need for POFMA?

    Indeed, CI. Care to answer the question? The PAP loses big with the implementation of the POFMA, as EVERYTHING they say and write is fake news (as it is written and skewed in their favour). And the punishment for the common man is heavy if we transgress. What punishment do the elites deserve if they do so? The same? A slap on the wrist? An apology and a ‘let’s move on’ excuse? No. It is time for the judiciary and the elites to not get off so lightly.

    Oh, and that Nas chap? He should fall from sight and go elsewhere. He has nothing we want.

  • Clueless ???:

    Only realized about the event on Sunday evening when YouTube recommends some of the videos uploaded. Guess is was not well publicized. So, that could be the reason for low turnout.

  • Better Strategy:

    You certainly have a better strategy.
