Majority of Singaporeans want strong laws against fake news?

In response, ruling party politician Edwin Tong rubbished Mr Paine’s claims and said that the Government is “confident that there is broad and deep support among an overwhelming majority of Singaporeans for laws to tackle online falsehoods.”
Asserting that “the overwhelming majority of Singaporeans want strong laws to deal with online falsehoods” and that only a small group is “crying wolf” over the bill, he said: “Crying wolf repeatedly gets no attention.”
He added: “The Government is confident that most Singaporeans understand the Bill’s main thrust. The concerted attempts by a small group of persons to mislead have not got any traction among most Singaporeans.
“The small group of persons I have referred to, speak in a shrinking echo chamber, with increasing shrillness. Some take refuge in alarmist language (including comparisons with nuclear wars) in desperate attempts to get attention.”

Netizens on social media have disputed this claim and have asked Mr Tong to prove his claim that an “overwhelming majority” of Singaporeans want strong legislation against fake news.
Asserting that the Government should have called for a national referendum if the people’s views on fake news legislation really mattered, Singaporeans called Mr Tong’s claims “fake news”:

Above posted in theindependent.sg site.

I also conducted a survey and found the majority of Singaporeans want PAP to rule forever. They even said it is ok to live under a dictator as long as the prices of their HDB flats would only go up and never come down and their money in their CPF would always be there.

Some of you may disagree with my survey results, it is alright. You can also conduct your own survey to discredit my survey. One question I would like to ask, how many of you think that the above surveys,  my survey and the one saying the majority of the people want strong laws against fake news are fake news?

Oh, you can also make a survey on how many people love to continue to have more foreigners coming and to boost the population to 10m and to boost our economic growth, and how many people would love to pay higher prices for water and electricity. I am sure many Singaporeans would love to have 10m population and would also love to pay and pay for water and electricity. It all depends on who you talk to. Tiok boh?

When I ask the devil about doing evil things, the devil would say that is a good thing and he loves doing evil things.

Yah Lah, no point kpkb here lah. 75 to 80% will vote for PAP to continue to screw their back lah. Once daft, forever daft. Worst of all, not only daft, they are also world best cowards. How do you expect cowards to stand up and stand tall? They only learnt how to crawl and slide silently like a snake - unable to stand up, forgotten they have legs as well as forgotten they have brains.

People defend fake news law by deliberately creating and propounding fake news are the ones who are faking all the time in their lives. Never trust such people. They are the lowest of the lowest scumps. They don't even have an iota of self-respect. So how can they respect the masses?

And it's BRILLIANT. He uses "survey data", so immediately there's a hint of "objectivity" --- which of course is totally BULL. Then he publishes results and conclusion from the "survey"...and has a fucking good laugh.

When LKY was alive, he used to say or imply that those who are poor are lazy and/or stupid. And sinkies clapped & cheered.

So is this LKY anecdote fake news?

Virgo49 said...

Every Minister can take action if they believe that that is FAKE News concerning their Ministries or. their status.

But cannnot sue them. Only they can sue you.

The Scams Fake News is a very serious Happening.

awhy Min JT and Potential PM don't demand that the FAKE scam news don't take down?

They must be in sixes and sevens and awaiting their Yat Ko or Shame to guide them.

Making a laughing stock of their newly empowered laws and themselves.

Ⓜatilah $ingapura⚠️ said...

Look at the Facebook comments lah. Everyone is LAUGHING!

Ⓜatilah $ingapura⚠️ said...

If LKY was still alive this stupid law would never see the light of day. The Tong fella would have been slapped and fired lah.

What Tong said may have some merit because Singaporeans have been the target of the mother of all fake news when repeatedly told that HDB flats will go up in price with upgrading. They swallowed the fake news in jubilation over many elections.

Now they have woken up after realising their flats will become zero in value after 99 years. That fake news will go down in history as the biggest fraud ever concocted by the Government.

But how conveniently they came up with this law with the provision that they can sue you, but you cannot sue them, to cover their arse in case another bigger mother of all fake news surface.

With hindsight, now everyone knows that there have been some very important and critical fake news (half-truths/falsehoods) created and widely disseminated over prolonged periods of time repeatedly, especially during election times, by the very same party that creates the fake news law.

There have been even more political and social manipulations of the masses and the voters for many years. The relentless importing of foreigners for conversion to new citizens is one of them. This is very serious because it upsets the existing unity and harmony of the local citizenry, and most importantly the voting trends and patterns.

So, one day this fake news law will backfir, because it can be used by the citizenry to hold some people to account.

There is a Chinese saying: "USING OWN PENIS TO HIT OWN HEAD." This new law is such a penis!

Whoever thought out this new law must be very wise; as wise as the owl. But the trouble is that the wise owl is always blinded during the day. That's why it is active only at night.

lt is apparent that the Regime is widening the Gap between itself and the Native Citizenry,
especially the lntellectual Community in the Society.
lt is quite surprising that the Rulers do not seem to care that there is rising resentment from the Intellectual and Middle Class Singaporeans.
Could it be a mistaken confidence that it has strangle hold over the People because it is in full controls of the Uniformed Forces and the Civil Service ?

The Rulers do not notice the Rising Resentment and Antagonism ?
is it taking the People for granted and brush off the Growing Disaffection ?

The Confrontational Stance of the Rulers against the Masses does not augur well for Sin at this juncture.
The Trade War between the United States and China as well as the Change of Relationships between Sin and Malaysia after Pakatan Rakyat replaced UMNO,is going to be very challenging.

The Sin Regime must be mindful for the Wellbeing of its' People. lt cannot afford to alienate itself from the People any further. The Consequences shall be dire.

The bonded plebeians in Sin are rendered hapless and they resign themselves to their fate in the gutter. There is nothing they can do against the Dictators who behave like emperors in the olden days.
Most have no sense of belonging and treat this barren rock as a half way house. Some treat themselves as refugees although they are born here.
This is how bad Sin has become.

To preserve the army for future battles, most of it was withdrawn. Chiang's strategy was to follow the suggestion of his German advisers to draw the Japanese army deep into China and use China's vast territory as a defensive strength.

World War 2 was fought between two groups of countries. On one side were the Axis Powers, including Germany, Italy and Japan. On the other side were the Allies. They included Britain, France, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, India, the Soviet Union, China and the United States of America.

Not content with merely selling us out to the Germans, Japanese and Americans, the PAP also signed two landmark treaties with China and India which effectively squashed any hopes for Singaporeans to reclaim their place in the workforce.

I got study Cambridge O Level one leh. I spot the pattern. I spot German and Japanese.

Is Chiang a goondu? Is Lee a goondu? Lucky last time got other old guards? Goh Keng Swee from Malacca, scoot to Singapore than scoot to China? Where he scoot, where prosper? No need war leh. No need ISA people. Goh Keng Swee must be very smart lah. Now China so li hai leh. Their vision is like last time PAP is it? If LKY never get rid of PAP old guards, maybe now we also very li hai? What vision current PAP have now? People jobless? Homeless? Die in 6 smoke bomb? Kena peep at? Choose electricity must headache? HDB become smaller and more expensive is Singapore Progressing? So many foreigners, power plant sell already, go so many army protect what ah?

Lee Kuan Yew dunno how to make WILL. Lee Hsien Loong dunno how to train people and just take Nas Daily like instant noodles. It is logical I am daft. So LKY get rid of old guards like people say. All the people now is following LKY style. I am daft, what good can they do? And the foreigners they take in, got invent Huawei for them? If the foreigners invent Huawei for my country, and my power plant never sell, it is okay I go army many times to protect them until they convert to PINK IC leh. Because I am brainless I can only offer my life leh. But they got brain, I never see anything manufacture as Singapore Brand leh. I see China can do it, I am in shock leh. I thought we progress faster? What is our founding father LKY doing? Oh, WILL he also dunno hor. No wonder I am DAFT.

Anon 1255am. How come I am helpless ah? Singapore history only 50 years leh. My founding father is LKY. That weird leh. Workers Party dont solve people issue also leh.

UG, since u are so choosy and lazy, I suggest you make a living using your body. Just be on the bed or at most in doggie or standing position and offer your ass for USA sailors. U can offer yourself at Orchard road opposite Tanglin shipping mall where most USA sailors go. Get your ass ready to be sodomized by them and your mouth ready for fellatio. Get both holes well lubricated to ease the pain. In that way u can earn a living and don't have to work so to speak. Good luck and God bless.πŸ˜€

Fast Forward To The Future - Part I

Singapore 2049. The DUST Party took over power from the incumbent ruling party with 80% of the valid votes throughout the city state. DUST stands for Democratic United Singaporean Talents.

A new government is formed within two days and sworn in on the third day.

Immediately, the new government goes to work to consolidate its power and flush out all undesirable elements (the potential trouble-makers and saboteurs) within the government, the uniformed services and the civil service.

All heads and deputies in each and every ministry, statutory boards, organs of state, military, police, intelligence services, judiciary branches, grass-roots organizations, newspapers editors, Temasek Holdings, GLCs, GIC, etc at all levels are being replaced.

The country's Constitution has been suspended. The post of the President has been declared redundant and the existing President is put under house arrest for dereliction of responsibilities and involvements in politicking.

Many ex-Ministers have been arrested, their bank accounts frozen, their passports retained or cancelled, and their relatives put under close surveillance and restrictive movements.

The Council Of Elders (COE) and three High-Powered Working Committees have been formed.

The first committee, the Constitution Review Authority, has been tasked to write a New Constitution within six months.

The second committee, the Judiciary Review Authority, has been tasked to revamp the Legal System and ALL the Laws In the Land within 12 months.

The third committee, the Inquiry And Investigation Authority, has been tasked to dig-up, discover, uncover, investigate and inquire into all possible and probable crimes and wrong-doings, based on existing laws, moral and ethical standards and common sense. The investigations encompass all political parties and branches of government, military, police, etc.
