ST Hypocrites!

I had to be sure so I checked the dictionary [Link] before I blog on Hypocrites:
hyp·o·crite   [hip-uh-krit]  Show IPA
1. a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, especially a person whose actions belie stated beliefs.
2. a person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude, especially one whose private life, opinions, or statements belie his or her public statements.

It was 'a view I could die from' when the editorial of Sunday Times 3 June 2012 read: "More civility, please"
If Straits Times can preach on civility, I believe I can be the father of the Queen of England, pigs can fly and Lee Kuan Yew can win an Oscar Award from Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for being the world's 'noblest' and 'kindest' and 'best' politician. On a more sober note, Lim Swee Say can nominate LKY for the 'cheaper, better, faster' not forgetting 'longest' minister of all time Life Time Award on May Day 2013! 

If there is a lack of graciousness, kindness, humanity and civility in Singapore, it is due to the overwhelming bullying and scary tactics that is practiced by the msm and the PAP. For the past 50 years or so, they created this uniquely Singaporean 'fear culture'! Vincent Wijeysingha put it so succinctly by saying, "Wealth and status is preferred to kindness and humanity" [Link]. Sadly, in their quest to hold on to power and wealth Straits Times behaves like PAP. How can they preach when what they do is so inconsistent with what is right and proper? When they so flagrantly commit acts that appear to flout and abuse morality and fair play?

  • Of all days, why publish such subtle trash on Hougang By-Election Day? To remind voters to vote for "red lightning and blue circle"? Subtle trash indeed!
  • If not for self-interest and to score political points for PAP, why do such trash against WP below
  • If ST were to play fair, would we not see something like below in the front page of ST to match what they did to Workers Party? "People's Action Party Gov't faces allegations of wrongful detention, torture, for 1987 episode". Unfortunately not! I have blogger Andrew Loh to thank for the 'like real' mock-up below! [Link]

If all the above are not signs of the flagrant abuse of power and monopoly, I do not know what is.
I am amazed that Rachel Chang wrote about "Ballsiness" (testicular strength?) in "Don't Let The Bullies Get You" on ST 3 June 2012:

I only wish Rachel could take on the big bullies, the real bullies. If only Rachel can take on the bullies like Maruah and Function 8 take on the bullies. 

If only Rachel can take on the bullies like Martyn See takes on the real big bullies [Video Link]

If only Rachel can take on the bullies like Vincent Wijeysingha takes on real big bullies [Video Link Part One] and [Video Link Part Two]

Sadly, Rachel's bread may be buttered by bullies.

Meanwhile, apart from 'Beyond the Blue Gate" by Teo So Lung, go get and read these books!

Do you think the straits times will last another 12 months after this?

Even if straits time is losing money, the govt will keep it afloat.

Just how important is the State media to them?

Yesterday they praised Ong guy, pap memeber/candidate, one whole page of it.

Today they praise the Khaw guy, half a page.

PAP through State media through PM's sister's articles, do self-praise quite alot.

One pap mp recently actually suggested that the State media has NEUTRALITY!!

This PAP MP is really in a very serious state of denial.

One feel sorry for him.

Yes, I see your point. But could it be, they are writing for another audience entirely besides the blogging community. Maybe they have said to themselves, the blogging community is already toast. So they decided to write to only target the mainstream or their traditional audience.

Maybe that is why when we regularly read what they write, we say this so surreal. But to those in the mainstream, it should make perfect sense right?

Dear Fisherman, I wish I can comiserate with you. But I no longer read things by Rachel and friends. I got the point long ago. I'd like to move on.

Take care of yourself. Don't score own goals!

The PAP never practices what it preaches. They talk about unity and inclusiveness, but when it comes to opposition wards it is a whole different definition of what they mean.

That is why they can never convince the Hougangers who know never to trust them.

So many promises, but just talk only. Where are the 'more good years' when most older citizens are forced to work until they drop, while younger Singaporeans are forced to slog just to buy that ever shrinking pigeon hole that they call public housing. And these public flats are supposed to be subsidised.

We really need to have a fresh start, which I very much hope to happen as soon a possible, preferably in 2016.

The Official State Medias are cajoling the people into a dark period in the History Of Sin.
