Is the label ‘divisive force’ a bogeyman to take the attention away from real issues?

The latest label being thrown at Singapore citizens – from a Minister no less  are - ”divisive force” and/ or “divisive forces”!

Is this so called “divisive force” that the PAP are talking about, really the feelings of the average people that you would encounter on an daily everyday basis?

Working class Singapore citizens from a range of varying professions such as cleaners, PHV &  taxi drivers, food delivery riders, security guards, pre-school teachers who according to statistics work very long hours for a low salary wage.

We never heard this term “divisive force” when PAP had 70% electoral support, vote mandate. Now that they feel that their supporters formerly making up 70% eroding or moving away from them, are they resorting to labeling these very same people who used to support them as “divisive force”?

Remember 2016? While the Brexit referendum was going on, there were labels being thrown around on the British people such as “populist”, “ignorant”, and “wrong headed” by establishment politicians on British people who either did not agree with them.

Similarly, when the US Presidential elections were going on there were label such as “deplorables” “xenophobic” by Hilary Clinton herself on Americans who either didn’t agree with her or were Trump supporters.

In the past 30 years in Singapore, it’s no different. From J B Jeyaretnam to Tang Liang Hong to Chee Soon Juan , these people have been labeled by establishment politicians as “duds”, “charlatan” just because they dared to stand up against the establishment.

The latest label tag being thrown in year 2020 is “divisive force” and/ or “divisive forces”

This is both ridiculous & laughable -  are they merely fear mongering to scare the people?

By pointing out to non existent bogeyman to take attention away from real issues such as education, employment, CPF, housing, healthcare, rising cost of living as our country being the most expensive country in the world?

  • Be worthy:

    Bugeye heng and Kee Chiu are realky suffering from bout after bout of verbal diarrhoea.

    Uncle is getting sick and tired of their motherhood statements and hollow utterances that there’s nothing to look forward in the future for our children. No vision, no concrete ideas, no inspirations, no nothings.

    Just keep on blaming sinkies while they continue to collect $million.

  • heng is so fake:

    don’t know the pap Lj.

    don’t even watch him at all.

    once in a while, while switching channels, see Lj face on tv.

    sure as hell he looks fake, especially his mannerisms.

    like the other pap Lj ng eng hen, this pap Lj heng is also trying to mimic mannerisms of pap master liar lky.

    perhaps this is why this heng, and that ng eng hen, are able to induct themselves onto pap S$m gravy train, since both mimic pap master liar lky.

    many ask what happens to these pseudo lky’s when New Government forms.

    well, all who do so shall ensure they are punished heavier since everyone knows lky lies hurt more people more deeply.

  • NotMyProblem:

    We already have a divisive force. POFMA is to protect the liars and prosecute the truth.

    We also have an Indian to represent a Malay. Are the Malays thankful to the Indians.

    Isn’t GRC a divisive force, saying the minority races need to have the majority race to get into parliament. Dividing the population into minority and majority.

    Only the PAP is capable of dividing the population.

    We only want to differential the tru-blue locals with the PRs, like we have different color of the ID. There is also the different of serving NS or not.

  • Mr Kia Su cheats to win:

    He did not answer Opposition raised questions well.

    Any intellectually honest and high IQ person can tell.

    But we are talking about the 70% who base on believing and unquestioning trust.

    HSK is totally unimpressive and I kinda detest his way of answering but not answering well.

  • Dont trust a word:

    PAP is trying to come out with new buzz words to “uplift” the intelligence of the daft 70% sheep population becos this bunch of people have started to wake up and started to go against the PAP because their sons, daughters, brothers or sisters have been impacted by CECA and the opening of the flood gates.

    After realising the huge Indian population and their village families in our neighborhood, Govt is now bringing on more Westerners to camouflage the colour inequality.

    PAP only wants to win the election and get a strong mandate to continue to rule dumb sinkies.

    Don’t be fooled by all the messages coming from the Ministers. it’s a coordinated effort by the paper Generals and elitist to rule the country with a huge FT population.

  • Mr Kia Su Box SWAP:

    After he “replied” to the questions, he did not ask the questioners, “HAVE I ANSWERED YOUR QUESTION, sir?”

    If he did, most would have told him NO.

    And IPS Indian guy did not even follow-up in the questioners behalf.

  • Shit Jin Pee:

    This kind of intellectual dishonesty tells us sg has not been able to get the best possible leaders for SG.

    There needs to be a democratisation of politics to create and allow a environment where there is healthy competition of ideas in politics.

    Good competition brings out the best. The lack of it guarantees we have not gotten the best policies and leaders possible.

    If Politicians are not allowed to Politicise or do politics, what is a politician?

    SG has no Constitution that says only the ruling elites are allowed to do politics.

  • REGIME CHANGE is the solution:

    Do not get distracted by the “noise” , “spin” and semantics from PAP. Stay focused. Just remember Singaporeans are worse off since LHL became PM. That is why Singaporeans must throw out the PAP at the coming GE and vote for regime change just like the Malaysians. VTO. Bury PAP with LKY. JUST DO IT!

  • opposition dude:

    It’s laughable that this is actually a topic, I thought we were all smarter than that to fall for PAP’s nonsense.

    Remember when a couple of activists met with Mahathir a year or so back? Right away they were branded as traitors to the country ah ha ha ha!

    PAP sure loves to make an issue look big when there is nothing at all don’t they? Don’t worry lah, this divisive nonsense will be over before you know it because PAP won’t waste their time and energy on this at all.

    What SDP says is correct though, PAP knows they won’t be getting 70% this time and are very concerned that they might lose more people than they have factored in.

    Don’t bother with PAP lah, let them sprout all the nonsense they want, it’s all they are good for anyway.

  • Gorillaized robot:

    It is sort of spooky to hear abt the Dishonorable son taling aby family unity leading to national unity. When LWL, DHS sister, kpkb abt an evil ambition of dynasty within PAP and dishonorable disobedience shown to her papA’s will on the house, who put up a gorilla with a very rude n nasty gesture, which even LKY’s daft loyal supporters found offensive indicating even LKY dafts understood what the uncouth FB member trying to say! Whom did LHY referred to have cheated him on the buy over of Whom share of the house in return for some promises but like PAP GE promises, they r meant to be dishonoured just as HY found to his horror? Who sent his personal lawyer n AG to seek extradition of Whom’s nephew on Singappore taxpayers’ expence to face charges on what the nephew write in his FB for limited circulation?Sure this seems to be a royal family private feud n nothing to do with Singaporeans but the greeds have eroded whatever little cells left that they think Singapore is their personal property to do what they like! No wonder they r now nicked as PSTBs n some nicked them as gorilla ‘s shits,!

    no wonder gorillalised PSTBs found it hard to sweeten the ground with their intensifying
    effort of pitching out at SIN tsyer’s monies red carrots even kids found it toxic to con their parents to payback later in chickens for the cesspool of Fake chicken SB or to some SH all pointing to PSTBs!

    So a SH telling sinkies to have national unity by having family unity so that the punks can poo n have greeds even
    Preying on the family n destroy the nation. These punks should be eradicated before SIN is sunk by them! Presumably Kimy n Trumpy will house them for the pay forward gesture! ho Ho Ho down the dark chimney sealed n protected by CB, Harem of plps bootlicking, BC, brownosers or just spineless idiots!ya

  • Khaw vs Heng re med bill 2:

    Extrapolations n speculations r not fake news. They r necessary for the humam World to progress n persecute them is destructive both in nation building n international peace for nothing can be good if they need to hide as this is one of the benefit from US impeachment of Trump. Trump impeachment has plenty for Singaporeans to learn. A President just with mere Presidetial privileges n a batch of succumbed or compliant batch of elected personnels as Trump n the Republican House Representatives can do such great divide n harm to a nation, what could a single political party with a compliant bureaucracy can do to a Nation would be alarmingly disatrous n damning! Democracy can be modified beyond recognition with zero separation of power n all its tenets. Fakes r trurth n truth r fakes not dependable on the contents but on the sources. This include interprtations as the power wishes n desires. Daft Singaporeans should listen, read n see with a comparative n extrapoltive mentality to Trump Impeachment saga, in particularly the fear of open threats.

    Bear in mind, is absolute power good for you n the nation?
    Are u voting in a govt to threaten your job, your life n your children future?
    Are you voting in a govt which rate themselves as above the laws even to the extent of becoming prosecutor n jodge defying separation of power which means the judicial n security have power over any unlawful activities of the govt n vice versa n not just one way from govt to security n judicial. Think of conflict of interest n responsibility n transparency as prevailing now n PAP!
    Promises n Oaths r measure of human in a human form as per incomparable to pigs n dogs, century old Chinese sociopolitical cliche in human not upholding human values but prefer to debase to Beneath the beast as wolves in sheep skin nicking on human without human values!

    Think before you go to the poll coming General Election!
