Frus at LKY worship/ LKY and the gods

Can you hear the banging of balls, fruz at what he and I’m sure other anti-PAP activists and cyberwarriors (nutty or sane), and ordinary S’poreans (who while respecting LKY, don’t do adoration) as you read the u/m? It appeared as a comment in TRE shortly after Harry moved on down and which I’m highlighting now ’cause of the KPKBing about the  perceived deification of LKY by the PAP administration.

A creative MediaCorp artist suggested to print $100 notes with LKY’s portrait on it. Those ministers, MP, grassroot and anyone who go on air to pay tribute to LKY tried to outdo each other. So we learned that we have to be grateful to LKY for our food, toilet, trees…..basically everything single thing around us has his footprint on it.

If a minister has his way, we will be flying our national flag on his burial day …

In India, a village with folks who never even set foot in S’pore are mourning his death. Village leader appeared on TV crying. These folks have family members working in S’pore so they are eternally grateful to LKY for letting truck loads of their sons into S’pore to make a living. India has declared 29 Mar a mourning day.

In China, villagers are flocking to LKY’s ancestral home in Guangdong built by his grandpa to pray to his portrait. They intend to spend $8.8M to turn it into a tourist attraction spot though LKY never lived there at all.

I have my own humble suggestion. Why not name the next new housing estate after LKY? It will come with LKY Street, Avenue, Lane, Expressway. So many things will be named after him once we have a HDB estate in his name …LKY Town Council, Committee Center, Malls, Markets, Schools, Parks, …… His name will be all over – everyone so happy, no need to write petition after petition.

Should not be a problem getting support as the minister in charge of this has been crying at the mentioned of his name. Certainly he will be all for it. Then each BTO flat can be sold at out of this world price. After all, a flat in a HDB estate name after a our supreme leader and his cabinet of ministers who draw out of this world salary must be sold at such befitting price.

No need to worry about losing election, as this will be GRC ward full of MIW supporters. If neighboring wards favor opposition, just redraw the boundary before election. It will be like killing 2 birds with one stone – $$ making and vote winning. LKY HDB Estate can propel the maximum number of MIW candidates into parliament. The only problem is can they build it up before the next election which is likely round the corner before LKY worship feverish pitch dies down.

Btw, here are some photos I commissioned before LKY’s death, when he was in hospital. I got this idea of affectionately and respectfully remembering LKY (not paying tribute) from photos I’ve seen of altars of Chinese peasants that had photos of Mao among statues of Chinese gods.
