Time for another bout of racist Singapore Blog Awards





Well, well, I’ve often said that there is no reasoning with Confucians. They are going to do exactly what caters to their self-interest or that which they are accustomed to - unless the order comes from top-down, is the fashion of the day, or there is a long queue for them to get behind. That comes with the combination of top-down oppression/suppression, monoculturalism, traditionalism, and all of which, breeds self-absorption, bigotry, and a penchant for the obvious as opposed to the detail.

So the racist SG blogwards has started again - supported by Singapore Press Holdings and Bloggers. Singapore started off as a Malay state, than moved on to being a multicultural one, and now.....

I’ll let the picture above do the talking.

This, by the way, is an indictment of the people for not taking issue with that which excludes and underdevelops everyone except the 'we are majority what!'. Quite childish isn't it. I suppose it is quite nice to be able to blame the government for everything and not notice the degree to which the evils that come from atop has been internalised amongst most of the population. Don’t forget to notice ‘blogger’ and ‘opposition’ silence on this, whilst many amongst them, some of whom claim to be ‘democrats’, will be happily preparing for it, completely unawares that their oversights cast serious doubt on their egalitarian spirit. You see, in Singapore, being a 'democrat' and an 'egalitarian' means two different things. They overlap, but that which falls out of this overlap is that which argues for their being nothing more than 'fascist democrats'. Well, this is just one amongst a multitude of other exclusionist approaches in singapore’s ‘multicultural’ milieu that generally goes unnoticed by the perspectivally medieval people of singapore. Same thing last year. Let’s see whether there is any change this year.

I've said quite a bit about it last year, and hence, will leave the reader with the following link, if s/he cares to peruse it, even if it probably wouldn't cater to her/is interests.

Is singapore a tyranny, or are people to dumbed down to feel it?

The following is a consideration of the perspective posted at the site, 'article14'. The site, in discussing the so-called 'Black Sunday movement' whose members wear black and congregate at Starbucks - perhaps they have an unstated desire to boost Starbucks sales of overpriced beverages, or perhaps Starbucks is paying for their black garments...silly people - to express their support for the freedom of expression - brought up certain points that seem to be commonly held by the 'singaporeans' of today.

Well, V (singaporean chinese girl working in the UK....and now back for the holidays) kept bugging the crap out of me to write about this experience....so here goes.

I arrived in singapore on the 15th of Jan in the evening via SQ with V.  I got to the baggage retrieval belt first and quite immediately got the attention of the customs police standing at the checkpoint near the entrance to the arrival hall.  Well, never mind.
