It is most heartening to see the ‘whites’ in the United Kingdom standing up for those whom aren’t a part of the ‘majority’.
But it is disheartening to see that whilst ‘Nazi scum’ are being contended with by the majority in the United Kingdom, such ‘Nazi scum’, according to British definition of the term (and as illustrated in the above video), might be a significant majority in Singapore. And what is even more ridiculous is how the the so-called ‘opposition’, the supposed ‘saviours’ of the people, via their consistent oversights, can evidentially be perceived as ‘Nazi scum’ themselves. What with the demonisation of foreigners by ‘Nazi scum’ Temasek Review, or TOC’s, most bloggers, and the opposition parties’ silence in the face of xenophobia, self-absorption and racism in Singapore, one can conclude that Singapore serves as an alternative to the UK. As i’ve said before, living in Singapore tends to lead one to lose faith in humanity, whilst being in the UK, reinstates it.
If I was to draw parallels between the UK and SG, i’d say that the British National Party rules in Singapore, and the English Defence League serves as the support base and comprises most singaporeans, bloggers, and other prominent elements in the ‘new media’. The PAP went ‘pro-Chinese some decades ago; the opposition went silent in the face of the interests of other ethnic groups; and they and bloggers went pro-Singapore Chinese, and overall, the existing local racism sort of ‘globalised’ and sees these well-practiced culturally introverted tendencies being leveled in the face of foreigners in Singapore. The opposition parties add the pragmatic perspective with regards to foreigners, whilst bloggers and the likes of TR vilify them, or remain silent in the face of their vilification. Hence, together, they present a complete picture that can only be described as, well, I'm sure the reader gets the gist.
I’ve never been concerned about the existence of racists and xenophobes. However, what raises the brow, is the absence of significant opposition in the face of its culturally introverted ‘Nazi scum’ grimace.
[I was planning to be at this demonstration held in Bolton, March 20th, but due to some personal reasons, had to put off my trip to the UK. Never mind, I will be there for the next one.]
