Special Edition: Who’s Pissing Me Off

Filed under: Uncategorized — theinkhorn @ 11:16 am

In this very special post, we take a look at some of the wankers and morons who made my morning in the office a very pissy one,

1. Don’t make Singapore ‘another racist country’ – Chong Kok Kean

AsianOne today published a rebuttal to one Mr Edmond Lin’s article. Mr Chong delivers some… interesting points. Here are the ones I feel are… important.

  • “What this proposal is going to mean is that Mr Edmund Lin’s national identity card is pinker than mine and his passport is redder than my Singaporean children.”
  • “…one of the reasons many ex-Malaysians including myself, for example, became Singaporean citizens is that Malaysia is practising pro-Malays or Bumiputera politics, that’s why we were emigrating, so now that Mr Edmund Lin is trying to call for our Singapore Government to implement some sort of racist politics alike here but in another forms to split the old citizens from the new ones.”
  • “all citizens should be treated equally with equal rights”
  • “…so I do not want Singapore to end up becoming another racist country.”

Given our history, I really don’t think we’d be practicing “racist politics”, Chong. I do empathize with you; division is never good. But for the love of god, don’t be a drama queen. Buy some red markers, sit your kid down at the coffee table with your ICs and passports, and watch as the colours magically darken. Congratulations Chong, you are pissing me off.

2. Labour movement goes on the offensive – Lim “CBF” Swee Say

The man who “feels rich whenever he looks at his CPF statement” has gone on to talk about tripartism and his “CBF” plan for the economy to students of INSEAD. Now, he has stated the intention to launch an offensive movement after the supposedly successful defense against retrenchment and unemployment. What Lim doesn’t tell us is how an increase in GDP will benefit citizens as much as a dog can mew. Of course, it would also mean more trips to Australia for NTUC agents.

Cheaper, Better, Faster? Cheaper people, Better holidays and Faster methods of screwing us over? Mr  Lim, you are pissing me off.

3. Complain against The Online Citizen made to Singapore Police – Janet Wee

Who on earth is Janet Wee? The enigmatic personality launched a complaint against TOC to the SPF.She also CCed TOC, LKY, ST and Google.

Speculation is that Janet Wee could very well be Wee Shu Min, daughter of Ang Mo Kio GRC MP Wee Siew Kim, star of the elitism scandal of 2006. She was in the RJC scholarship programme so I guess it’s not really her fault that she’s such a wanker.

Sadly, Janet has failed to note that the link was actually carried from Martyn See’s blog. She also fails to note that the information has been drawn from the archival records in London. But hey, they’re records in London. Those bloody Brits must have amended them somehow. Poppycock!

What happens now remains to be seen. I can vouch confidently though that nobody will be wetting their pants so Janet, try harder. Now please, get out of my elite uncaring face. You’re pissing me off.

4. It’s your problem – LKY

Yes Singaporeans, remember, if we fail, it is our, and only our, fault. Our MM has said so himself. We lack drive, we’re not hungry, and our parents didn’t push us hard enough. So you can only blame yourself. The news was broken almost 5 days ago. Silly me, anticipating a reaction from the man, decided to leave the issue alone until one came. Maybe he broke his hip laughing at the incompetence of his fellow Singaporeans.

I really don’t need to explain this do I. Mr MM, you are really pissing me off.

Last, but definitely not least…

5. Be prouder of your country – Sam Ahmed

Wanker of the day, Sam Ahmed, wrote this article in the Straits Times last month, shown below in its entirety.

I REFER to Thursday’s report, ‘Singapore a top choice for migrants’. I am a new permanent resident, and this report not only makes me proud, but also affirms my fundamental belief that Singapore is destined to be a global centre from a financial standpoint and a cultural and social perspective.

After living most of my life in Sydney, Paris and Tokyo, I have embraced Singapore as my home – I never felt so intimate with the other cities.

My only beef with Singapore is that its citizens do not necessarily share my passion for this country. From personal observations, I have noticed that Singaporeans are both competitive and in a constant pursuit to improve their daily lives, whether economically or in some other sphere.

In this challenging environment, it is natural that one loses perspective of the overall big picture, which is that Singapore, a country of about 700 sq km, has come a long way from a backwater trading post to establishing itself as arguably the financial and technological hub of Asia.

Perhaps Singaporeans should be prouder of their country. Cab drivers complain about everything and university graduates I come across talk of saving up and moving to Spain or Italy.

Perhaps it is time citizens took a step back from the frantic demands of everyday life to reflect a little on what their country has to offer – a safe, ecologically aware and technologically advanced metropolis with excellent public transport and infrastructure, a thriving arts scene and a welcoming multicultural local population.

If foreigners from all over the world can see this and are coming to Singapore, why can’t Singaporeans?

Sam Ahmed

Mr Ahmed, if that is indeed your real name, you are absolutely, 100% right. Why shouldn’t we be proud? Why shouldn’t we be glad that we have no freedom of press or speech? Why shouldn’t we rejoice that our country’s leaders are earning millions to lose billions of our money? Why shouldn’t we jump for joy that tossers like you get to come to our country and praise us for our economic stability while overlooking the lives of the citizens? You have opened my eyes, Sam.

For a new PR, you are quite the wise guy. Your “observations” are horrendously distorted. Your views are… for lack of a better term, imbecilic. You have practically zero knowledge of this country’s history, and yet you attempt to make it seem like you understand us well enough to tell us what we should be thankful for. You are a mercenary, Sam. One who embraces any country that provides for him wealth and stability.

I feel sad for you, Sam, for it is YOU who do not see the bigger picture. Or any picture at all, for that matter. You, are seriously pissing me off.
