Why Bicentennial Celebrations Must Stop

When the British hastily ran away from an approaching Japanese Army, they left behind the People of Singapore to fend for themselves against the cruel marauders.

Many of our People, especially the Chinese and Eurasians died during the Years of Brutal Occupation. The others who dared to help the targetted people were not spared too.

My late father witnessed many acts of atrocities against our own people. The tortures described by him were brutal and cruel. Even our womenfolk were deflowered and some of them even killed and disposed off. Parents had to resort to desperate measures to save their loved ones by “purposely making them less appealing or attractive”. Some even handed them out to the other races to bring up as adopted children.

Do remember that the Capitulation of Singapore was also a time when some locals took advantage of the prevailing situation and became “willing accomplices” of the dreaded Kempeitai by “acting in furtherance of a common intention”.

How many locals were directly killed as a result of information from such despicable “informers”? According to my father the usual reason was “helping their Chinese bretheren in Occupied China or acting against the orders of the regional commander”.

From the very onset, the British were here to benefit from raw materials. It was the same with that clerk from the British East India Company who was later proclaimed as the Founder in 1819.
In conclusion, the planned Bicentennial Celebrations would not only be extravagantly staged at our expense but it’ll also open the wounds of those who are still alive and of those who lost their precious brothers and sisters to the insane Japanese soldiers.

What should’ve been rightly done was celebrate the bicentennial as an occasion when many of our brave ones, including Lim Bo Seng and Adnan Zaidi laid down their lives for the defence of Singapore and her people. The occasion should also include condemning the known local informers.

Do remember that no Nations, including those nearer home have ever celebrated such occasions, especially such very embarrassing colonialisms.

    Bro, I agree to Disagree…the British FOUGHT and lost out to a better-trained army who like some today who will go on a suicide mission in the name of their WHATEVER…in the case of the Japs it was their Divine Emperor…”an IDIOTIC General same as the IDIOTS we have today surrendered and the rest is history as it was written after the war”…

    by a puppy of the Japanese in his memoirs…

    ” Do remember that the CAPITULATION of Singapore was also a time when some locals took advantage”…(when stopped to be loaded and shot)…emphasis mine…

    “of the prevailing situation and become ‘willing accomplices’ (Translator & spies or eyes)…of the dreaded Kempeitai by acting in ‘the furtherance of a COMMON intention’”…

    to be used & QUOTED in later years after the war…We MUST remember and NOT be DECEIVED by an ILLUSION!!!

  • Singaporean Kong Come:

    The Bicentennial celebration is another con celebration to bluff those 80%daft n idiot voters,(This coming GE propaganda) as if they fought the Japanese, During the Japanese occupation, Pap still not born yet. Is the local who fought n defended this country. LKY, Nathan Osman Wok, just to save their own skin, they work for the Japanese. They R too responsible for the Sook Ching massacre, Old people nbabies were slaughter. When Pap came into power they do the same thing, murder innocent n defenseless babies “Stop at Two”. They don’t feel ashame for this celebration. World number one thick skin bast**d.

  • Flabbergasted:

    They are not only celebrating colonialism.

    They are now letting in the foreigners in, esp the white shit and these foreign are so emboldened. They know the locals can’t do anything to them because they are so loved by the whites and are protected by the useless, ambulance – hiding forces.

    They happy to revert us to manchurian days.

    There may come a time when certain enclaves will display signs that read “DOGS AND NATIVES PROHIBITED”

    vote wisely, vote the bastards out, unless you want to see colonial days again for your children.

  • Harder Truths:

    The Bicentennial does not mean anything because it is a made-up observance. No one cares when $G was founded.

    The old are in homes for the aged. If they are unlucky they still have to clean tables at coffeeshops until they drop dead. Newcomers alighting from ships or planes provide ample labour while locals are dismissed as not being good enough – which actually means cheap or 24/7 enough.

    $G was and still is an island of migrants. The bottom line is what the citizen can dig up for himself – and anyone else be damned.

    Under such conditions the only reason to celebrate an $G Bicentennial is to mark 200 years of slave labour. After all – this is what $G locals are proud to be.

  • Rabble-rouser:

    Clear sign that the political leaders have run out of ideas for S’pore. Now they have to “Pai Tie Kong” ie. Pray to the Heavenly Gods! Also, need to perform rituals like Bicentennial Celebrations to further appease the Gods!
    Look at the monies to be spent constructing a Founders MRT Station at Marina area. On top of that, land there is hyper-expensive (on reclaimed land) yet still want to build a memorial for the father there. And we thought the troubles over 38 Oxley Road were to gazette the house as a memorial site for LKY despite his final wish in his will for it to be demolished.
    Why all these ancestral worshipping & ritual performance through looking back at the past? Yet the question we should ask is for whose benefit? Apparently, the masses are already being squeezed like an orange giving up all their juices so that the political elites could drink from. We can all thank LKY for that!

  • Against Despotism:

    “There is but One God. His name is Truth; He is the Creator. He fears none; he is without hate. He never dies; He is beyond the cycle of births and death. He is self-illuminated. He is realized by the kindness of the True Guru. He was True in the beginning; He was True when the ages commenced and has ever been True. He is also True now ……. Even Kings and emperors with heaps of wealth and vast dominion cannot compare with an ant filled with the love of God … If the people use the wealth bestowed on them by God for themselves alone or if they hoard it, it is as if it were a dead corpse. But should they hasten to share it with others, it thus becomes sacred food for all.”

  • World Reaction ?:

    Gorek:
    Bicentennial celebration is an ac of treason against the country> celebrating colonial invaders. India philippines an many others wanted to chase them out

    -The young AristoCATs made a boo-boo.
    -
    First plan, the Celebration for the Arrival of Raffles in Singapore.
    It was meant to be a click-bat for SG Tourism . . .
    -
    World Reaction ? – Whoa, the only country in the world that celebrates colonialism !
    -
    Ouch !
    -
    The AristoCATs are well “educated”, mah.
    -
    Revised plan, introduced Malay, Chinese, Indian early Pioneers.
    Change the word from – “celebration” to “commemoration”
    Voila – “politically correct”
    -
    But the damage is done. . .
    -
    MIW defence – “honest mistake”
    -
    Samantha Boh thought the whole episode to be “cartoon” –
    “It’s spending a year celebrating neither date, nor man.
    It’s almost like the British colonialist disappeared.
    Oh wait, he just did.”
    -
    Remember the Ballot Box !
