Foreigners influencing the thinking of Singapore govt

SINGAPORE: The Chinese Embassy in Singapore on Friday (Jul 19) refuted a report alleging that Beijing has been conducting influence operations in Singapore, calling it “absurd”.

The Jul 16 report, published by US research institute the Jamestown Foundation, said that “the fundamental purpose of Chinese propaganda and influence operations in Singapore is to impose a Chinese identity on Singapore”.



The report, titled A Preliminary Survey of CCP Influence Operations in Singapore, also claimed that China uses cultural organisations, clan associations, business associations, youth programmes and the Chinese-language media to reach out to different segments of Singaporeans.

It said that business associations act as the “most powerful lobby for Chinese interests” in Singapore, and that they have lobbied the Singapore Government on behalf of “pro-PRC positions”.

Singapore media, including the Straits Times, had reported on the analysis by the report's author Mr Russell Hsiao, who is the executive director of the Global Taiwan Institute....


Mr Hsiao wrote...
“Singapore’s government views identity as an existential issue, and is likely to resist CCP efforts to make inroads in this area.”

The above article is a clear case of foreigners, ie Americans and Taiwanese, attempting to influence the thinking of Singapore govt and sowing discord between Singapore and China. The question is whether such loaded one sided article would actually affect the thinking of the Singapore govt. My view is that if the leaders of Singapore is kosong in their heads, then such articles would have great influence on them, especially the banana thinking type and the WOGs. For these type of people, they believe their ancestry came from the West and are ashamed of being Asians/Chinese and would love to distance themselves from China and be seen as closed to China or even being Chinese.

And there are many instances and evidences to confirm that this is the case. The fear of being like China could be seen in their pro American and anti China rhetoric on international issues, particularly the South China Sea claims and the need to invite the rogue Americans to balance the influence of China in the region. And there is this eagerness to strengthen relations with India with the signing of CECA and increasing the presence of Indians in the island and offering many top appointments to Indians from India, in the commercial sector, in govt linked companies and in the academia.

Maybe the banana thinking politicians feel pressurised by the West and see the need to be more westernised, even Indianised, to be acceptable to the West. As a result, Singapore is becoming more westernised and Indianised to the extent that the majority and dominance of the Chinese is being questioned and challenged by the new citizens.

The govt's promotion of speak Mandarin and clan activities are a natural cultural thing but now increasingly seen as negative especially in the above reports. Chinese should not promote their own culture and be more Chinese. Even Mandarin, one of four official languages was frown upon and attacked by a minority in facebook, ridiculed. Speaking Mandarin is unacceptable, intolerable. The person making such a stand was not reprimanded for attacking an official language, as far as I know.

So, how far would the above article influence the thinking and policies of Singapore govt to become more anti China and anti Chinese? The fact that it received so much attention to be in print in the main media said it all. Would Singapore lose its Chineseness, the main driving force that built this island to what it is today and become more like another third world city run by third world inhabitants? Donald Trump said to the immigrants, "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places" before coming here to tell us what to do. All the major cities in Asia and SE Asia are built by Chinese stock entrepreneurs. Removing the Chinese stock or reducing their influence would have grave negative impact on the economy and infrastructure development of these cities.

The Chinese identity of Singapore is a plus factor. Do the bananas want to do away with it to embrace third world identity and spiral down to the abyss of the third world?  Would the writer, Russell Hsiao think the Chinese identity in Taiwan is bad and should be replaced by third world identity?

What is the intent of publishing such article in the main media? Agree with the writer Russell Hsiao or disagree?

Do u think this is India conducting influence operations in Singapore - in 2012, the Government of India conferred the Pravasi Bharatiya Samman (Overseas Indian Award) to SR Nathan.

We don't see China giving Overseas Chinese Award to Singaporeans!

The Pravasi Bharatiya Samman (Overseas Indian Honour/Award) is an award constituted by the Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs, Government of India in conjunction with the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas (Non-Resident Indian Day), to honour exceptional and meritorious contribution in their chosen field/profession. The award is given by the President of India.

@ get fucking real you dumb shits,

Please lah, whilst certain aspects of its multiple Asian cultural roots are maintained, Singapore is WESTERNISED. You can fuck off, eat shit and die if you don't like it. I think it is awesome and will continue to be so.

Cantonese-Hakka Dr Sun Yat-sen, 1st President and Father of China was a banana. He even ate many bananas when he was a young student in Honolulu :-)

Dr Sun was DEEPLY influenced by Abe Lincoln and other western thinkers when he derived his 3 Principles of The People. "Govt for the people by the people" is not a culturally Chinese idea...it is the main ideas AMERICA was founded on.

Who the fuck wants CCP ideas lah? When the CCP has ideas to make money...OK, everyone jumps in. But a CCP-visioned culture or society...no lah, FUCK SPIDER. ๐Ÿ•ท๐Ÿ•ท Control here, control there, this cannot do, that cannot do....even the CCP officials send their kids to the west for education...and they also quietly and secretly take their money out of China, DESPITE they themselves implementing strict CAPITAL CONTROLS.

No one wants Singapore to turn into a vassal state of China lah. Fuck that shit. Singapore is way too good for that. Remember---despite our size we teach them. Better they shut the fuck up and pay attention lah. They are communist. But Singapore is the most successful and best governed COMMUNIST CUNTRY in history. ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿค“ Why? Bananas, that's why.

In reality, it is the Indians (both from India and locals) who are actively influencing the Singapore Government.

Just take a look at the top ministerial and key appointments. How many Indians are there? One even holds for many years two key and powerful ministries concurrently, refusing to give someone else a chance to become a key minister. What does this tell you? Who actually runs the show?

Just take a look at the top positions in the private, technology, research, academic, banking and human resource sectors. How many Indians are holding the posts?

Just ask yourself: Who is the present President of Singapore? Is she an Indian by birth or Malay?

Just ask: Who holds and controls the Foreign Affairs and Relationships? For how many years have Indians been the Foreign Minister, except for George Yeo?



Anonymous said...

Why can't a Malay Singaporean holds the Deputy Prime Minister's post?

Why can't a true blue pure Malay Singaporean holds the post of the President of Singapore?

Other than the First Presudent of Singapore, there has, until now, been no Malay President. The present one is basically a political maneouver to ensure she is the ONE AND ONLY PERSON to hold that post. You can come out with all excuses and cover-stories, but you cannot change our perception and belief.

Don't make my toes laugh Matilah.

When the Chinamen came to Singapore to look see look see how's smart you bananas are, they are laughing in their minds.

But too polite to tell you daft bananas off.

My long time HDB serpent of forty old year in service and who also was in their construction sector told me that they came here to socall understudy, they could even in their mental calculations faster than our Harvard or what's lan sai Americunts unis engineers tell you their calculations of the blue prints in an instant without using what's calculators or tangent timetables.

You think they want to copy your Lego blocks of similar same type of HDB flats in the 70s and 80s??

They are everywhere just to test and see you braggart bananas monkeys are boasting what's your technology.

Even some Anons harping that they are in Harvard Unis to learn from the Americunts

They are there just to test waters how smart these bourgeoisie tortoises are.

See what's the Americunts top unis and miltary colleges produced our daft Scholars.

Who only knows how to sing and talk cock platitudes of how to turn around the enconmy but NO concrete solutions.

So, bananas continue to boast that you are one up against the Chinamen. The6 had more technology to show than your empty boasts.

All should learn from XP Deng. "It doesn't matter whether the cat is black or white, as long as it catches mice". aka Race does not matter so long as can enrich the elites. Even Deng got it. The elites will always screw the people whatever the race. The more people they can screw the merrier. They do not care about the race. Its only a tool for them to divide and screw the people. It has been like this for thousands of years.

RB

If anti China and anti Chinese can make Singapore more secure and also grow GDP, the PAP govt will be influenced to do it.

For instance if USA can offer Singapore security against attacks by bigger neighbours, and if USA ask PAP to be anti China and anti Chinese in return, then I think PAP will be influenced to become more anti China and anti Chinese lah.

PAP can be pro or anti anyone lah, even anti Sinkies if need be(LOL), if doing so can provide security and GDP growth for Singapore.

Quite true, because PAP policies is anti Sinkie by making a lot of Sinkie PMETs drive GRAB while giving their PMET jobs to foreigners even for the sake of just 1% GDP growth.

Best of all, 70% still voted for PAP.

Or is it 70% still has good life and only 30% or less PMETs drive GRAB?

Just a quote from LKY even in 1978 when Deng visited Singapore as goodwill diplomacy.

@All,

Only losers pay attention to this. Majority of sinkies who do well just focus on what they & their forefathers have been doing for decades.

My neighbour recently bought a nearby resale condo & moved with his family, while letting his parents continue to stay in his current HDB.

I asked him if it required heavy loan commitments, & he said that they were careful to avoid that. The HDB was fully paid up more than 10 yrs ago, and they are savers. So for their condo he only needed to take on a 10-year mortgage. Even if he gets retrenched, he has calculated that he'll still be able to pay the bank as an average Grab driver.

They are definitely part of the 70%.

U see PMET become GRAB drivers, u see the old collecting cardboard, u see Sinkies no money or money no enough etc, these are the 30% Sinkies who did not vote for PAP, I presume.

Majority are doing OK, or at least they think Singapore is the best place for them to do OK. If not, they would have "run road" liao. Those who still stayed behind and suffer are among the 30% who did not vote PAP.

Hence there are good reasons why PAP can win 70% votes and a good opposition like Chee Soon Juan could not get 40% or more votes, even in a by election.

I think Chee Soon Juan is a good opposition leader because he presented a lot of good policy proposals which shows that he is ready to be a better PM than Ah Loong or even Heng Swee Keat.

But too bad, his party SDP could not contest 100% seats, and only a pathetic 11 out of 89 seats in 2015. Like that where got hope?

I guess he also cannot do better this round or else he would have announced it already by now.

Not to worry, that will be at least another few decades down the road lah.

By then PAP may have been voted out and the opposition take over as govt and change it from 99 years to freehold lah. LOL

Towards A Better Life - Part 1/10

Save money. Let money work for you, instead of you working very hard for money.

Buy properties (asset). Don't buy cars (liability).

Assets increase in value and reduce in expenditure as it gets older.

Liabilities reduce in value and increase in expenditure as it gets older.

Some Singaporeans are assets to Singapore because they increase in net-worth as they get older.

Most Singaporeans are liabilities to Singapore because they decrease in net-worth as they get older.

So, don't waste your precious time on useless pursuits and pass-times. Make use of your available 24-hour day fruitfully.

How to be fruitful? Plant fruit trees? Eat a lot of fruits? Bear and raise many children? They grow up clever or not is not important. The important thing is teach them how to make money work for them.

Give them advice and instructions like a Rich Dad would. Don't give them advice and instructions of a Poor Dad.

Only 1% in the world are Rich Dads. 99% are Poor Dads. Be that 1%, and your children will also become part of that 1%.

If you continue to do the same things everyday and expect different results, it is SHEER madness.

Look at the Opposition Parties. For more than 50 years and they are still small flies/fries. They have been doing the same things for the past 50 years. Never change tactics or strategies but expect different results. Unable to do a Quantum Leap to trounce the PAP. Why?

Because they get advice from their Poor Dads. They don't have Rich Dads to help them. So SAD!

Frog Outside Glass 6:05 pm

Why? Because they are not smart mah.

Smart Sinkies don't join opposition one. They are smart to make lots of money to have good life. If have good life, join opposition for what?

Chee Soon Juan is smart as an intellectual. He is smart in writing books and policy proposals but he is a stupid politician. And Sinkies will not want to vote stupid politicians, not even in a by election.

And the Sinkie opposition are stupid politicians, including now Tan Cheng Bock. When he was with PAP he is smart, but now he is stupid. I predict coming election he will end up like what happened to Tan Jee Say in GE 2015.

I think TCB is not stupid --- he may be getting too sentimental or idealistic as he becomes old. But if you see him going all out to campaign as Oppo, don't be surprise if he has transferred all his assets to his children & wife already. Even if they come after him, there's nothing to confiscate, and I think he already made his peace if they insist to dorami him.

Actually I think Tan Cheng Bock is already stupid when not being PAP's preferred candidate, he die die still want to contest 2nd time as President.

And after kena played out by PAP and became not eligible to contest, then only he decided to become Sinkie opposition, which is also another stupid move when his party PSP is not ready to be govt.

So I think Tan Cheng Bock will lose in the coming election, unless he announces his party PSP is ready to be govt.

All signs in Hongkong, China, Singapore and Everywhere around the World is showing that the Chinese World-wide adore most things White.
English is used at protests in speeches, banners, placards.
Not Cantonese, Mandarin or Other Chinese Dialects.
PRC Television Programme Satine Singer 2018, the Artistes sang more English Songs than Chinese Songs.
Mind You, it is a Chinese Mainland Television Programme. See how the Artistes dressed and behaved, hardly anything oriental except the Minority Tribes who are proud of their own Ethnic Cultures.
ln fact,
the Manchurian Chinese is much more proud of the Chinese Culture than the Han Chinese.
Do not forget that Chinese all over the World are incline to send their children to study in the West.
It is not surprising for the Han Chinese to embrace alien cultures, especially that of the Whites.
้‡ๆด‹, meaning worship the Whites has been the Case for centuries and it will only be more so unless the Chinese Tribe learns to cherish and maintain some Ethnic Dignity and Pride. As it is,
it appears that it aint going to happen.
The Chinese as a whole, is going to be Westernised in the Near Future.

@ 7:38 pm,

You are correct. I am not rich dad. I have no children yet.

Now, bear this in mind:

HDB is not asset but liability. You pay and pay until you completed your mortgaged instalment payments between 20 to 30 years. After that, you get nothing back when your lease reached 99 years and you have to hand over the flat back to HDB.

Your HDB flat depreciated in value from say $500,000 (purchase-lease price plus interests payments) to $ZERO. Total loss = $500,000! Therefore, it is a Liability, not Asset. Since it is NOT an asset, it cannot be considered as Properties.

Wait for my Part 2 to find out what I mean by "Properties".

Please, not all are in for their Glory or Wealth.

You can call them Stupid or whatsoever names you want.

They are just Men or Women who just wants to serve their fellowmen thru their own prnciples. To them Men does NOT live on bread alone.

They lived with justice on their minds and tried to stand up for the helpless, less fortunate than them.

To those Soulless men and women who only thought that they are Smart by lying low and make as much monies aa they could and considered them as SMART Sinkies. Here something to ponder. If you lose your Country and have others in control and took over your land, you think these who took over your land and places will be magnanimous as your own fellow men. ? ??

You think they will acknowledge you as SMART by you just making your wealth and kept your mouths shut and leave you alone in peace? ?

Just like lease dogs without any dignity?

You have NOT been colonised by outsiders before and do NOT know what's is beyond your rights.

A home is not a home without a country to call your own.

If you believe in those charlatans who are been brainwashed by others that you must have open borders to accommodate them as they are just scavengers and locusts to rid of you then you are been foolish to have you yourself and your next generation to be blamed for your follies.

The worse is that your children or their children might curse and spit at your graves for not doing the right to protect them and their lives.
