首次,他把我们等同畜生,这回他说我们是无知的。李光耀在星期一举行的中国全球论坛上告诉他的听众们说‘新加坡人是愚昧无知之辈’。

读者们应该会记得今年初在国家地理杂志的访问里,资政说新加坡人的身体需要马刺的鞭策以促使我们勤奋工作。

这种重复对新加坡人的蔑视在他的追随者之间产生效应。人民行动党国会议员 Charles Chong 先生把新加坡人视为一群妒忌富贵人家的凡夫俗子。这是他对新加坡人批评常任秘书 Tan Yong Soon先生夸夸其谈自已的奢侈旅行时所作出的回应。

Wee Shu Min 小姐,一名10多岁的青少年,是人民行动党国会议员 Wee Siew Kim 先生的女儿,她把一名博客称为‘讨厌的水蛭‘’因为对方抱怨在新加坡很难找到工作。

在全球论坛的会谈中李先生说:台湾人无情,香港人无耻,新加坡人无知。无知的人不贪污和值得信赖。

就是因为他对新加坡人有如此低劣的评价,李先生引进过百万的外国人来取代我们。这并非夸大其词,资政不断的重复指出,没有了这些外来人士,我们的经济就会崩溃。

如果新加坡人确实是愚昧无知之辈,是谁把我们变成这般?我们不是在人民行动党管制下生活了超过半个世纪?这不就是李的管埋失败,在经历了50个年头之后还没有培育出精明的人口?

是谁囚禁了记者和摧毁了独立的媒体,从而让新加坡人只听到一把声音 – 他的?

是谁在社会上塑造了这么多的恐惧,以至于历史学者不敢让 Vincent Cheng 先生在图书馆的座谈上发言?

是谁培训了整代的缺乏想象力的部长,他们知道如何去压制他们不认同的资讯如林福寿医生的录像,却不知道如何激励人民?

但是,李先生是细心选择其侮辱的对象。如果他是香港人或者是台湾人,他不会使用这种贬义词对付自已的国人,因为他知道自已将会受到严峻治罪。事实上,他受到来自马来西亚的严格反驳,因为他说新山是个抢劫盛行的城市,他为此而低声下气的道歉。从此之后,他在提及北方的近邻时都很小心谨慎的遣词用字。

然而,他知道在新加坡这里,他对媒体有着绝对的控制,他无所顾虑,因为公众的愤怒是不会在报章和电视上得到反映,不论他如何的羞辱我们。

这表示了他是何等的‘精明’。

Lee insults Singaporeans – again
Thursday, 15 July 2010

First he likens us to animals, now he says we are ignorant. Mr Lee Kuan Yew told his audience that “Singaporeans are ignorant” at the Future China Global Forum Meeting held on Monday.

Readers will remember that earlier this year in an interview with National Geographic, the Minister Mentor said that Singaporeans needed spurs stuck into our hide to make us work harder.

This repeated pouring of contempt on Singaporeans has rubbed off on his followers. PAP MP Mr Charles Chong referred to Singaporeans as “lesser mortals” who were jealous of the rich. He made this comment when Singaporeans criticised permanent secretary Mr Tan Yong Soon for boasting about his extravagant holiday.

Ms Wee Shu Min, a young teenager and daughter of a PAP MP Wee Siew Kim, called a blogger a “wretched leech” when he lamented about the difficulty of finding a job in Singapore.

In the Global Forum meeting Mr Lee said: “The Taiwanese are ruthless, Hong Kongers are shameless and Singaporeans are ignorant. People who are ignorant are not corrupt and reliable.”

And because he holds such a low opinion of Singaporeans, Mr Lee brings in foreigners by the millions to replace us. This is no exaggeration as the minister has said repeatedly that without these foreigners, our economy would collapse.

If Singaporeans are ignorant, who made us this way? After all, didn’t we live under PAP for more that half-a-century? Is this is not a failure of the Lee’s rule, unable to produce an intelligent population after 50 years?

Who jailed the journalists and crushed all independent media so that Singaporeans only get to hear one voice – his?

Who instilled so much fear in society that even historians dare not let Mr Vincent Cheng speak at a library seminar?

Who groomed an entire generation of unimaginative ministers who know everything about banning information they don’t agree with like Dr Lim Hock Siew’s video and nothing about inspiring a people?

But Mr Lee chooses who he insults very carefully. If he was a Hong Konger or Taiwanese he would not be making such derogatory remarks about his own people because he knows he would have been severely disciplined. In fact, he was roundly chastised by the Malaysians when he said that Johor Baru was a city of muggers and had to issue an embarrassing apology. He has since chosen his words very careful when he talks about our northern neighbours.

But he knows that where Singapore is concerned he has complete control of the media and therefore safe in the knowledge that public anger will not be reflected in the newspapers and television no matter how much he insults us.

That’s how “smart” he is.
