No not because Ng Yew-Kwang, Winsemius Professor in Economics, Nanyang Technological University defends the water price hike of 30%, and implies that it should be a lot more.
We should give him the Nazi salute and shout “Heil Hitler” because like Hitler he equates compassion towards animals with compassion to human beings.
The reported parts of my interviews may give the misleading idea that I do not care for the low-income groups. I am certainly not unfeeling. I feel even for animals, not to mention fellow human beings, especially the lower income groups. As a student, I was a left-wing activist.
Over the last 12 months alone, I donated S$50,000 to animal welfare causes, despite being not tax-deductible in Singapore; receipts available upon request. For more evidence of my concern for animals, please read my following articles* (links provided below) on animal welfare.
Well Hitler loved animals, so much so that he was a vegetarian. His deputy and designated successor, Hermann Goring, was an environmentalist and conservationist, and passed anti-vivisection laws.
Lab animals giving the Nazi salute to Hermann Göring for his order to ban vivisection. Caricature from Kladderadatsch, a satirical journal, September 1933. Göring prohibited vivisection and said that those who “still think they can continue to treat animals as inanimate property” would be sent to concentration camps.
Now this love of animals didn’t prevent the Nazis from sending six million people to the gas chambers did it?
Am I being a bit unfair to said professor? He later did say
I mentioned that ‘I donated S$50,000 to animal welfare causes’ over the last 12 months alone, in response to the accusation of being ‘unfeeling’. But then I received a message accusing me of ‘care more for animal welfare than the welfare of your fellow [human]beings’. Though I did not mention it, actually I donated much more to human causes; just in last October, I (together with my wife) donated $100,000 to the Chinese Heritage Centre alone (again receipt available upon request; I emailed it to the accuser). I could be accused of human-biased (or homocentric to some extent), not of caring less for humans.
I didn’t know that the Chinese Heritage Centre helped “the lower income groups”. Did you?
Sieg Hail to the professor. Hitler and Goering would be proud to have him on their team. They too, like him, loved heritage.
