Recently in Singapore, a Member of Parliament Mr. Seng Han Thong was set on fire by a disgruntled Singaporean. Mr. Seng sustained 15% burns to his face, neck and back. You would think that after an incident like this, there will be an outpouring of condolences to Mr. Seng and an outpouring of condemnation to his attacker.
Not a chance. If you read the blogs and the Internet websites in Singapore, you will be struck by the sense that most people in Singapore admired the attacker. Never mind that the attack, Mr. Ong Kah Chua, is suspected to be a mentally disturbed man, Mr. Seng (and the PAP) got it coming.
This is what happen when idiots rule the blogsphere. MP Seng Han Thong was the unfortunate victim of a vicious attack by a mentally unbalanced man, and as he is undergoing a second skin graft operation, people are condemning him?
People are complaining about the fact that he is under the care of one of the best plastic surgeons in Singapore, and that his medical expenses are all covered by the government. Some even complain that he will continue to receive his monthly pay of over $10,000 while on sick leave.
Singapore websites are full of articles about how this is just the response of the people after being kicked by the state for too long. For those idiots who said these, I have a suggestion.
GO AND SET YOURSELF ON FIRE! If you are unhappy with the government, there's a thing call elections! You do not set fire to a Member of Parliament.
A Member of Parliament was attacked while carrying out his duty and he is facing condemnation from the public? I'm not a big fan of the Singapore government, but any attack on a Member of Parliament must not be tolerated and his attacker must be harshly punished. I don't know what illness his attacker has and I don't care! Throw the book at him; lock him up for 20 years, give him the death penalty, send a message that any attack on any Member of Parliament will NOT be tolerated.
