Hali is also into “Post-truth”

In Political governance on 14/09/2017 at 4:19 am

When I read her FB statement* saying

Thank you very much for your strong show of support.

I am deeply touched by many of you who have signed up as supporters and many others who have given me words of encouragement of well-wishes on my facebook & website.

I coouldn’t but think so “post-truth”.

“Post-truth” is a word that has come to prominence as the Western liberal elites are angsting and spinning about their defeats in Brexit and the US presidential election.

The Oxford Dictionary declared ‘post-truth’ its word of the year 2016. FT added “A less verbose way to describe the same phenomenon would be to say it was the year in which emotion trumped fact. Or cruder still, it was the year of the lie.”

Why Race is BS or “post-truth” at work?

Support? What support? https://sg.news.yahoo.com/overwhelmingly-negative-sentiment-decision-halimah-yacobs-presidential-eligibility-report-070536453.html


*Mdm Halimah Yacob posted on her Facebook page on the eve of Nomination day, saying that she will be making a pledge to Singaporeans and attached a hand-written letter that is addressed to everyone.

The letter wrote,

Dear Singaporeans,

Thank you very much for your strong show of support.

I am deeply touched by many of you who have signed up as supporters and many others who have given me words of encouragement of well-wishes on my facebook & website.

I will be submitting my nomination form tomorrow at the nomination centre and many of you have indicated your intention to be present.

From the bottom of my heart, a very big thank you!!

I will serve Singapore & Singaporeans with great passion & commitment. I want you to join me in making Singapore a great place by Doing Good, Doing Together.

  1. I will serve Singapore & Singaporeans with great passion & commitment.

    Somehow what she wrote sound hollow to me. I am more inclined to think she will be beholden to those who made her President. And I think most people share this sentiment.
