Protecting Local Livelihood Now Branded Far Right

Ong Ye Kung: We’re determined to never let far-right populist politics to gather strength

PSP brought out a critical topic concerning Singaporean PMETs but instead of providing answers, they were quickly dragged through the mud by MSM and labelled as racist. Out of a blue a poster with a South Asian appeared at Tanjong Pagar, the racism issue was blown even wider after. It looks to be a concerted effort to stop questions on Foreign Talents, FTA, CECA and population growth.66 Then we have a number of politicians that reinforced that Singapore must remain open and Pinky himself said that in NDP Speech, no coincidence that they look coordinated for a political purpose. The answers provided to PSP questions were selective, hide and seek as usual, no direct answers were provided. Do we expect they will? So whats the conclusion? Are we locals still dreaming we would get answers and actions on our concerns? Remember these are the very people who created these policies and you expect them to acknowledge the issues revamp? Come on, don’t kid yourself after many decades, these pipers had brought many to jump from the hills and you still harbour hope of change?

The strategies to block and stop these questions:
1. Racism
2. Attack the people who questions as far right
3. Tying investments to foreign talent/immigration

Racism is strange when we were told we not ready for non Chinese leader. How about a Malay minority for EP? So who is far left? For 60 years, foreign investments arrived in Singapore because of its strategic location, political stability and hardworking work force. Recently some article told of a Pinoy student sponsored to study in a local polytechnic and later university and later found a job selling insurance in a bank. Is this the kind of job that locals can’t do that we need to go third world and sponsor them to come and take these
jobs. I am not sure why they tie investments to foreign talents except these inferior talents came here with families and kampung taking the lunches, buying BTOs and spending on high cost of living leading to GDP growth. So does it mean many oppositions said our key economy growth is basically based on foreign immigration. Or we need to import inferior talents, sponsor their education and let them take these jobs that Singaporeans can do?

We have many local PMETs who can’t find jobs after 30, becoming PHV and food deliveries. We have many locals discriminated by foreign migrants for job placements. Instead of solving such problems, they changed KPI to working part time one hour is employed. The two legs of immigration are wide open and enlarge that our population swelled from 3.8M to 5.8M in 20 years. The flood is no longer once in 50 years, once in 5 months perhaps.

Don’t get me wrong, this is a pro foreigner leadership, they will not change, they will only attack and smear people wanting to help local ensure they have decent living, job and security. All countries protect their own citizens and we are the odd country where 53% of the population are foreign born, we were told we are now far left. We wonder if this happens to Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, China or US, what would happen? Singaporeans have been bullied left and right for so many freaking years that most people just resigned and accepted the nonsense. Worst, some dumb even repeat the propaganda and a lot of locals are fearful and self centred, they only will cry foul when hit.

Locals need to see through the lies, perception and propaganda and come next GE, you remember if you are not hit, your children might be affected. If you are not hit now, you will be hit later. So for god sake, we need to unite against this astronomically paid parasites.

  • opposition dude:

    Change is already coming albeit in baby steps. As always the majority of kiasees have to be shown that having more opposition in parliament WON’T lead to the collapse of the country. Being dafts they can’t think and believe everything PAP says.

    The loss of 2 GRCs has already occurred with more expected in futire elections. The PAP can continue to blah blah blah but as more of those born after 2000 are eligible to vote along with those born from the mid 90s onwards is when we will see change. Their vote share is already at 60%, who dares to say it won’t go below that in the next election?

    So for now we have to bear with their nonsense just like how we tahan’ed from 2015 to 2020 after the sympathy election. We can only expect more people on the island up to the next election since they already said any donkey can come in if they can prove (real or fake) that they have been vaccinated in their country. So prepare to say hello to more from a certain south asian country, China, Philippines and of course, more hostesses from Vietnam.

  • But the FTs are low calibre:

    Any body asks the ministers about the qualities of FTs? Many of them are from backward countries, low productivity, fake qualifications.

    Why our national productivity fell beginning about 2011 worst in IT, Banking & Finance, and construction. Why there is no break down of productivity in IT and finance & banking nowadays but lumped into services? Scar what?

    Who need rocket, satellite, etc scientist FTs not so many IT, banking FTs which Singaprean can do.

  • Smart Nation:

    This is another attempt to demonize the Opposition. In the past, they have labelled the Opposition as Communists and Marxists. Historically, right-wing political parties are associated with Fascism, Nazism, authoritarianism, militarism, race superiority, anti-Communist, ethnic-cleansing and oppression of ethnic minorities. The Opposition has yet to show any of these traits. Advocating for justice, equality, fair-hiring policies, and the protection of livelihoods for locals is the right thing to do. It is certainly not racist because the Opposition is not advocating for any particular race but for all races. The “right-wing” label seems more fitting for the Party that advocates that a Chinese-majority SG is not ready for a non-Chinese PM. Perhaps, the Minister might want to reflect on his own Party.

    This boy is more fake than his appearance. If he ultimately becomes PM, SG will be gone before Sinky even realise. He knows his chance is not high under the Leegime but nevertheless will tries to position himself as high as possible in this opportunity. Politics is never never. If he gathers enough supporters, Leegime will end in his hands.

    Even my sister, a HOD of particular institute thought he is good but never knew his background. A person cannot change his past, and that provides a rich ground for influencing his/her subsequent decisions and behavior.

    The couple of incidents that were reported in the media could well have been set up to distort and turn arguments against liberal immigration into an issue of racial discrimination. Unsurprisingly, the “targets” were Indian immigrants and not the other races. The Party would be playing with fire if it distorts the CECA debate and turn into a race issue. Another Little India event could erupt.

    In Afghanistan, the US is the conqueror and to many Afghans, the previous government is “collaborator” of the US. That is a reason why the government forces surrendered readily to the Taliban.

    After that situation gets from bad to worse, rising food prices, transport fares and housing prices … Only the business people and the rich with multiple properties like GCT, LHL benefit.
    When the Covid 10 pandemic strikes, more people suffer but the same small group of people like LHL, TCH, the Lee, Wee, kwek, Ng families, not to forget FTs and naturalized Singaporeans like Piyush and gang are literally laughing to the bank.

When we talk about unemployment benefit, they said they are right and deny citizen their welfare. When we talk about foreign labour, they said they are left and open the flood gates to foreign trash. When we talk about Singaporean strongly support policy, they said no, no populist. If their policy does not serve the voters or populist, who their policy serve to? Elite or rich? Their cheap foreign labour has result in unfair competition for local and Singaporean who are talented are out of jobs. Singaporeans University graduate drive grab and experience Singaporean workers out of jobs, they are competent workers and talents, not low educated or without experience.
