The Hypocrisy of Lawrence Wong

In today’s Straits times there is a full page article entitled “Managing the tensions of tribal politics by Minister Lawrence”.

I do not think that any Singaporean would have the patience and the time to plough through this 10,000 word essay simply because:

First it is far too long and second, what is the relevance of American tribalism to us?

Our politicians like to ape the West. So when Americans become tribal we also become tribal.

If Minister Wong wants to talk about racial politics just say so. Why disguise it under the rubric of tribal politics? Just look across the causeway and to Burma he will be able to find myriads of examples of racial tribal politics right at our back door. Why is there this need to go around the world to look at America and compare their divisive politics with Singapore?

Anyway I went to the last paragraph of his long-winded article and quote him as follows:

“We may not always arrive at the perfect solution. But we will never let any group feel unheard, ignored or excluded. We will never let any group feel boxed in or ostracized. All must feel that they are part of the Singapore conversation: all must feel that they are part of the Singapore family; all must feel there is hope for the future”.

There is so much splendor in his rhetoric but I would simply ask him:

What have you done to the 60000 Singaporeans whom you have banished from the normal discourse of life in Singapore – from the malls the eating places the hospitals and their work places all with the stroke of a pen without any consultation or conversation that you wrote about?

This government that he represents has absolutely refused to engage or to arrive at any solution let alone a “perfect solution” on the vital issue of vaccination that concerns the lives of the Singapore family that he talks about. This government has ignored the plaintive cries of the folks to “Heal the Divide” and instead they are resorting to the use of police power to bulldoze their way to achieve their conflicted goals.

So is it not pure hypocrisy when he said that he will never allow any group to ”feel boxed in or ostracized”?
Until such time when they learn to honor their words and cease using the Sword of Damocles to threaten their own people they will end up lancing the pus and the puke from their own warts and boils with the poisoned sword.

    “Tribalization” started when the pappies decided that they should pay themselves the highest pay for doing fuxk. This entitled the tribe members to $8 heart surgery; fail and fail yet never get sacked; hijack parliament for personal court case; call voters Free Riders but they themselves are the biggest free riders; enjoy No Blaming Culture privilege; etc…. Why LW didn’t cited this as an example of Tribe in SG? Oh, …. hypocrisy as usual from the pappies, hor.

    DOES LW or HIS MINISTRY (MND) RESPONDS to very polite, respectful, well-researched extensive, written communication on POLICY MATTERS from citizenry on any matter of national significance?

    Or did he and/or his ministry just pretended that the said writer is a “ghost” and not even officially acknowledging receipt of that written communication?

    I believe he and/or Ministry knows or ought to know the answer.

    MARGINALISATION of the unvaccinated is policy error, unnecessary and divisive of national unity, and most of it harmful to the discriminated.

    Worst still it does NOT contain the pandemic transmission rate – notably daily infection rate & mortality outcomes were MUCH LOWER before the mass innoculation saturation to plateau overhead resistance.

    The so-called “fully vaccinated” is a misnomer and living lie of fast fading shadow after 6 months – NO DIFFERENCE from the unvaccinated. Policy-makers are aware of this fact. Hence the irrelevant and unnecessarily marginalisation of the unvaccinated serves no purpose than its hidden divisive (political???) agenda.

    Policy makers are NOT even aware of when the so-called fully vaccinated is ready to receive the “booster” jabs for 95% majority (of fully vaxxed) yet STRANGELY AND INEXPLICABLY DETERMINED RIGHT NOW that the unvaccinated (5%) are “walking pathogen” of its presumption.

    The margin of error of policy makers is 95%.

    How can policy-making ever be correct with 95% chance margin of error beats my mind comprehension. It would be so easy to lead a country is policy-making is good and effective if only 5% of the time it is correct.

    IS THIS PAPpypolitic’s standard of sexed-up quality decision analysis and outcome?

    Basic human rights IS SNATCHED away off from the right to live humans of SG, by the Administration every minute when any covid measure opportunities are presented to them at the pretence of good for the majority.

    The crux and cruciality of it IS SIMPLY these Millionaire pretender law makers of SG and a kay poh engineer, ARE DEVOID of effective ideas to rein in COVID and messing up with SGpns lives is their management driver.

    ha ha…tribes? So, we have the Cantonese, Hainanese, Pekinese, Shanghainese, etc. tribes.

    We also have North India, West India, etc. tribes?

    Must be the excellent school who educated him…we are all tribal. Suddenly this word has entered into our vocabulary. Even the great LKY never talked about tribes. It is about Races but to LW, a race refer to illegal car races, to horse races, to gambling races.. ha ha.

    Come 2025, I hope the majority of Singaporeans will remember this bunch of so-called “4G” scum who are dividing society with laws reminiscent of Nazi Germany, Jim Crow and the South African National Party instead of tackling the root problem of the pandemic (i.e. border control) and do the needful.

  • Is he (Are they) a hypocrite?:

    ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr narrated:

    The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Whoever possesses the following four (characteristics) is the absolute hypocrite but he who is marked by any one of them is already hypocritical unless and until he gives it up. They are:

    1. Whenever he is entrusted with something, he will betray the trust.

    2. Whenever he speaks, he will be telling lies.

    3. Whenever he makes a covenant with you, he will prove treacherous to that agreement.

    4. Whenever he enters into a disagreement, he behaves in an imprudent, insulting and evil manner.”

    (Sahih Bukhari, 34)

    “In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.”Franklin D. Roosevelt
    LW hint us that he wants to Qin Emperor,Qin Shi Huang and make Singapore Rome by using examples of Qin Shi Huang and Rome. His name is Lawrence related to law in first three letter. Qin Shi Huang’s empire is famous for harsh law. LW use harsh law in covid-19 crisis to restrict our lives and take away our freedom like Qin empire. For Rome part, Singapore has military services like Rome and start as a small state. [Marcus Aurelius] “There was once a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish.” It show his ambition. LW is waiting for our feedback and support. I had enough of harsh law, military service and I want freedom, so I do not want to support LW and his anti tribalism plan.

  • Professional Liars:

    Pants on Fire: Liars, liars, …

    Nowadays, more lie in their professions. These include politicians, lawyers, journalists, media owners, business owners, doctors, scientists, researchers, educators and so on.

    I am wondering if this was the same situation in the days of Noah.

    PAP talking cock as usual, just how many times have they said they will look after Singaporeans? And yet, singles are barred from buying 3 room and bigger BTOs, the unvaccinated can’t dine out nor enter shopping centres and bus fares are going up come December.

    Who cares what cock they will talk come the next election, we just kick more out simple as that. Thank god more voters woke up last year and didn’t fall for their jobs jobs jobs nonsense which they were repeating nightly on tv!

  • Harder Truths:

    The CoVID show has brought out the gutter politics of the law enforcement, legal and healthcare systems. They own everyone and everything.

    This is what happens when idiots end up in power. Idiots need more and more power because they become less and less capable of doing anything.

    Even 85% got vaxxed – this shows the unbelievable trust the population have on a bunch of exam-passers. People will soon learn that loyalty and trust in stupid people is going to get them killed. And there is nothing further they can do about it.
