If Hougang SMC falls, then all the chicken feathers have been plucked

There is a famous quote by fascist poster boy Benito Mussolini: “If you pluck a chicken one feather at a time, nobody notices.”

His analogy spoke to the fact that a leader or government could consolidate power feather by feather without the people realising it or making a fuss about it.

Each and every election in the past 29 years has seen the Workers’ Party romp home on the back of the Hougang Spirit.

The People’s Action Party tried and tried but could not pluck the feathers off the chicken in Hougang.

The Hougang Spirit – almost a throwback to the kampung spirit – prevailed each time, a spirit borne out of sacrifice, resilience and fortitude. Come what may, resist temptation, even if there is the threat of having to pay a price.

The overtures of the PAP are seen as forbidden fruit – one you succumb to a bite of the apple, you have sold out, you have given up the power in your hands – the voting power.

So never ever take a bite of the apple, never allow the chicken feathers to be plucked!

But for GE2020, even Hougang is precariously poised.

If Hougang SMC falls to the PAP, the rest of the country does not stand a chance.

We always knew that the Hougang flame of democracy, no matter how resilient, was fragile against the onslaught of the PAP.

If Hougang fails to carry on the mantle as Singapore’s opposition stronghold, it would set the country back three decades. At least.

  • Sg lover voters, please:

    All Singapore lover voters please vote. Even if Singaporeans lose all 93 seats, we make sure the alternative parties get at least 30%.

    If the alternative parties get very low votes, they may just give up on Singaporeans altogether. In that doomsday outcome, Singaporeans will get no more choices after 2020.

    Do we really want that?

    Finally SiaSuay admitted that piggies use fear to get votes.

    Middle of Covid crisis—Pandemic GE called.
    Fear is their currency.
    Jul 10—Stop voting to live in fear.
    You can break the chain of FEAR.

    Hougang SMC may still be in WP hand this round but may not be so in next GE.

    PAP is using the same trick as in punggol east SMC where WP lost in spite of having almost the same vote count as previously.
    PAP got more votes that round was due to new residents especially those new citizens & those living in private condominium. All these new votes go to PAP.
    Potong Pasir also the same.
    Hougang in past few years see lots of new condominium being built.
    But this round may not be enough for PAP to turn the table just yet.

    If this is to happen, Singaporeans will have to pay the price.

    “O God! guide me along with those whom You have guided, and strengthen me with those whom You have given strength. Take me to Your care with those whom You have taken to Your care. Bless me in what You have granted me. And protect me from the evil You have ordained. Surely, Your command is over all things and You are not commanded by any whatsoever; and none whom You have committed to Your care shall be humiliated, and none whom You have taken as an enemy shall have comfort. You are Blessed indeed, Our Lord Almighty.”

  • Dr. Chan:

    Once all opposition wipeout, PAP can enact same National Security Law like HK. Singaporeans choose their Government one last time in 2020.
    Then after that join CCP, NK, Cuba etc.
    No more GE liao.
    PAP Huat, Huat, Huat.

    I am for supporter of real democracy and opposition. Obviously, I don’t want that to happen.
    For the sake of Singapore’s future, please vote wisely.

    HOHOHOHo

    You are proven wrong. Generally opposition votes increased across the board. Hougang’s percentage is the highest for WP’s win.

    You can jiak sai.
