Difference between opposing the PAP and being anti-PAP

The former disagree with “The PAP is always right”, always willing to challenge the PAP on issues where they think the PAP doesn’t get it, or where they think there are better alternatives to the path the PAP is taking. In this category are the likes of Yeoh Lam Keong, Chris K, Dr Paul Thambyah (even if he’s chairman of the SDP), Mr Chiam, Dr Tan Cheng Bock and the PSP are like that. This is a good example of how these people think and behave.

The Wankers’ Party and its members, when they stop wanking themselves, and find their balls (as they occasionally) do are also in this camp.

The anti-PAP types are those who say “The f**king PAP bastards are always wrong”.

They could be sincere social justice warriors like Terry Xu of Terry’s Online Channel, Gilbert Goh and Teo Soh Lung. They could be ang moh tua kees like PJ Tham and Kirsten Han.

Or self serving opportunists like Goh Meng Seng, Lim Tean, Mad Dog, Tan Kin Lian, Tan Jee Say and that guy on Finland’s dole, who do not wish S’pore well: .Anti-PAP activists loi hei wish.

Or juz cybernuts like grave-dancing Oxygen and other TRE and TOC ranters.

I can’t make my mind whether Donald Low and Tay Kheng Soon oppose the PAP or are anti-PAP.

I’ll end with Dr Tan Cheng Bock’s FB post:

Wuhan Virus – Stay Calm. Take Care. Be Considerate.

In 2003, Singapore faced the SARs virus. Our country overcame and learned invaluable lessons in outbreak management and spread containment. We then applied these lessons to counter subsequent threats such as the swine flu and the H1N1 bird flu.

Today, the Wuhan virus has landed on our shores. It is a new virus that the world has never seen before. Worldwide, governments and health professionals are sparing no effort combating this mutant strain – learning its behaviour, treating patients and hopefully finding a vaccine soon.

At the frontline, brave doctors, nurses, paramedics, hospital, laboratory and clinic staff are literally risking their lives to lead the fight. They have my utmost admiration. Let’s do everything we can to support our health workers.

For the rest of us, we can also play our part. The DORSCON level in Singapore is now orange. Understandably, some people have acted in fear by storming the supermarkets to the extent that NTUC Fairprice has had to impose purchase limits for paper products, rice and instant noodles.

What we can do may not seem much compared to our courageous health workers. But if everyone chips in, it will send a signal that we stand with them. To do so, we also need to be brave in the way we react.

Stay Calm
The 1st thing we can do is to Stay Calm. It takes courage not to panic. If parents remain cool and steady, your children will learn to do so as well. Don’t forward rumours on social media. Don’t panic buy groceries. Don’t blame others. Worry and stress will also affect your health and the quality of your sleep. Panicking helps nobody, least of all ourselves.

Take Care
The 2nd thing we can do is to Take Care. Take good care of your personal health and hygiene. If we stay healthy, we will help free up the medical profession to treat those who really need medical care and attention. Exercise regularly. Eat healthy. Keep your living areas clean. Wash your hands often. You will be an asset to those in need when you are strong.

Be Considerate
The 3rd thing we can do is to Be Considerate. Think of the well-being of others. Look out for the interest of our senior citizens and young children. Stay home if you are unwell. Wear a mask if you have a cold or are coughing. Your cough may be harmless but you will ease the worry of others when you wear a mask.

If you are under quarantine, follow all the prescribed regulations to stop the spreading of disease. Don’t avoid giving your information for contact tracing. Co-operate fully. It may seem a little more troublesome and take up your time, but it is the right and good thing to do. Keep others safe and others will keep you safe.

Let’s do this together with our frontline heroes. Don’t leave this fight to them. This virus is everyones problem, and together, with God’s grace, we shall overcome. Remember, Stay Calm, Take Care and Be Considerate.

For country, For people.

  • opposition dude:

    Opposing or anti PAP means the same thing mah, both groups don’t like how PAP does things what.

    The thing about PAP is their continued arrogance when it comes to matters which citizens suffer. The recent transport fare hike is one. Only think about making more and more money and never think that this causes people to pay more and more each year.

    The best is PAP being forced into a coalition government so that they can’t do whatever they like.

    Deng Xiaoping famously said that it doesn’t matter if a cat is black or white so long as it catches mice.

    We must not allow any idiot to confuse, divide and disrupt voters resolution by singling-out, dismantling and purposely isolate and differentiate to make Oppos look sparse, weak and separated.

    Such post reminds and encourages all Oppos and voters to stay united and focus on their common objective to Vote for Change.

    The Good News is Parliament will be automatically dissolved come Jan 2021. Only few more months left for them to pack-up and go.

    I always voted PAP but this led to complacency and worse SG.

    So I continue to make PAP better by VOTING AGAINST PAP.

    This is tough love. To make my beloved PAP serve the people better.

    The 4G is a big disappointment to say the very least.

    C’mon, we can’t have everyone loving the PAP can we now.

    Besides, a million “homeowners” should be sufficient for starters surely.

    Another million who believe Hal Ya is Malay.

    The third tranche of million who “know” that cpf is the best thing since sliced bread.

    A further million who are indebted to the pap for their livelihoods.

    The fifth million who are students and hail lky as the founder of SG.

    A few hundred or so who are the pap or related to the pap, or married to the pap.

    Which leaves the final 500 thousand or so, who has neither seen or experienced anything good from the pap, and naturally, seek a change.

    C’mon, we can’t have everyone loving the pap, can we now.

    Only the moderator can make him disappear, but he’s still providing the platform for this cynical idiot. You are not the only one who have issue with his articles.

    So no need to pity this cynical idiot. Instead pity TRE for having such a moderator who keeps providing the platform, and still struggling to get donations for the past 10 months!

  • Think So:

    Oxygen is almost forever ranting about everything. According to him/her it seems everything is wrong almost all the time. If it is all so exceedingly bad here, I wonder why he/she has not already migrated elsewhere.

    As for TKL, I am still baffled how the Govt had him lead NTUC Income for so many years. So heavy on theory in what he posts, and often seems impractical.

    @ Oxygen

    Yes, there cannot be only one voice. That much most would agree, including I.

    But views cannot be as one sided as yours often are. And though there are flaws in every system, it is hardly as dire here nor is it as inferior as you often make it out to be.

    @ Think so

    MATE, I DON’T UNDERSTAND how one, including me, can ever present AN ALTERNATIVE PERSPECTIVE without presenting an alternate (one-sided in your language) UNLESS YOU INSIST THE ONLY ONE VOICE IS THE ONLY VALID VOICE OR NARRATIVE.

    Think So: But views cannot be as one sided as yours often are

    I supported (usually) with weblink sources in support of evidences BUT OPEN TO CHALLENGES just like any other debating floor would and should welcome.

    I comprehend even less of this proposition of yours

    Think So: it is hardly as dire here nor is it as inferior as you often make it out to be.

    How can my perspective be so “dire” (presumably yours represents the universe of reasonableness and rationality exclusive, spoken and unspoken in TRE) when I don’t participate in 90% of the threads in TRE. I neither have the time nor interest in some topic.

    BUT I DO KNOW THAT SOME OF MY EARLY WRITING NEARLY 10 YEARS AGO receives peer review of professionals and one economic paper listed for reading of clients of a top US investment bank. Surely that can’t be dire of your descript.

    I know that I am a die-hard liberal, so my construct of an extremist view is one on the opposite extreme side of the spectrum. BY THIS WRITING, YOU CAN DECIDE WHICH END OF THE CONTINUUM YOUR THOUGHTS AND VALUES RESIDE IN.

    Thank you for participating in this thread.
