Psychopath with an anti social personality disorder?
Or is he?
"I've had several of my own doctors who are familiar with such conduct . . . tell me that he is a near psychopath", Lee Kuan on on Chee Soon Juan.
'Today one cannot help but conclude that the trailblazer is more a sputtering meteor, and perhaps one with an anti-social personality disorder", ST Political Editor Chua Mui Hoong on Chee Soon Juan.
After watching the videos above, I guess reasonably sane people will not agree with Lee Kuan Yew's and Chua Lee Hoong's perception of Dr Chee Soon Juan as a nut case.
For almost 2 decades, I have never seen or read of the mainstream media putting Chee Soon Juan in a good light. If he was not condemned, he was totally ignored. His recent party's alternative National Healthcare Plan [Link] and other ideas were shunned and never brought up for discussion by the msm. Considering the NATCON that is supposed to hear from citizens to make their lives better, isn't it a waste that such ideas from Prof Thambyah and CSJ and his team are silenced?
Chee Soon Juan is neither Nelson Mendela nor Aung San Suu Kyi. However, he's definitely not what LKY and Chua Mui Hoong describe him to be. Instead of "a sputtering meteor, and perhaps one with an anti-social personality disorders" is it time that out of the ashes, a phoenix rises?
Glad as I am that Chee Soon Juan will be discharged from bankruptcy, I'll still worry that the power that is will throw him another curved ball to prevent him from competing in the next general election. Let's wait and see.
Meanwhile, I'm amused that the way Straits Times is still milking Amy Cheong to keep the NATCON going! Page D2 and D3 of Saturday's Insight of ST, "The Race Issue - Different Shades Of Grey" reported "Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said Ms Cheong's comments were totally unacceptable". Dear honourable PM, just where were you when your dad said/wrote that Muslims in Singapore cannot integrate with the rest of us? Was his comments acceptable to you? If not, why wasn't your finger and that of your other ministers as fast on the trigger as you shot Amy Cheong for her indiscretion, stupidity, racism or whatever?
Maybe "Justice and Equality" as stated in our National Pledge is nothing more than an 'aspiration' as stated by the PM's father. Or is it a song and dance to pull wool over the eyes of the faithful Singaporeans? If there were justice and equality in Singapore, LKY should be fried or torn asunder like Amy Cheong was by PAP Ministers and the mainstream media for her insensitivity to the sensitivity of fellow citizens!
However, in trying to protect the sensitivity of some, I'm sad to note that the power that is is messing up the sensitivity of others. After Amy Cheong's incident, the Media Development Authority decided to ban Ken Kwek's "Sex.Violence.Family-Values". Unless we are ready to lighten up and not be 'pap'politically correct all the time, we are nothing but "daft digits" controlled by the "pappolitically correct"! Wake up, have fun and let's start to smell the roses and laugh some!
I guess reasonably sane people would laugh and not be offended by Kumar's performance. If so, why ban Ken Kwek's work?
Is Ken Kwek the same young Ken who was fried by LKY for asking a pertinent question that riled the old man a few year ago?
If so, I'd appreciate if my readers who know will enlighten me.
