Meng Seng wants us to kowtow to Xi

In China on 07/03/2018 at 10:17 am

Actually I’m just being polite: the guy who helped (Was he paid? Or did he do it out of the goodness of his heart because he loved the PAP?) the PAP’s preferred candidate to win in PE 2011 by

— persuading TKL to run;

— then running a shambolic campaign for TLK;

— and then saying he had to go to HK for a job interview,

wants us to lick Xi’s ass, suck his [expletive deleted] and get screwed by Xi, all at the same time. Image result for Goh Meng Seng

Don’t believe me? Here’s what he wrote:

Although we might not want to subject ourselves totally to China’s dominance but it would be naive to think that we could go head on against it, thinking that we should be more superior in any context.

Notice the dog whistles he’s sending that we must kowtow to Xi.

Lest I be accused of taking his statement out of context, here’s his piece telling us that China is the nice guy, not a bully. Everything that China did wrong should be blamed on the Mongols and Manchus who were not Chinese: not the Chinese. Btw, /www.quora.com/Do-Chinese-people-consider-the-Manchu-Qing-dynasty-to-be-Chinese-or-do-they-consider-it-to-be-an-invasion-like-the-Yuan-Dynasty.

Imperialism of the Day

I was a bit curious when I read about PM Lee’s praise of LTK’s speech. I actually bother to do a search and listen to his speech.

I was a bit shock when I heard him saying that China might become an “Imperialist Power” and behave like Japan during the Second World War! It cannot be the case that the negative nuance of such provocative suggestion could escape a seasoned Chinese educated politician like LTK!

Curiously, LTK didn’t mention much about European’s Colonialism nor the “Imperialist Dominance” of the Americans in the last century over Vietnam up till today’s world.

Imperialism exists throughout history and even in modern times, it still exists in many different forms.

But to use Japan as a corresponding example to China is basically an attempt to add salt to past wounds and mockery aimed at the Chinese government.

If these words come from some American or Western educated person, I would have just smiled or laughed away but for a person who is well verse in Chinese history, both modern and ancient history, to utter such words, is really socking and provocative.

The Chinese hated the Japanese for the invasion and atrocities done in WW II. To make comparison of China between them as potential Imperialist, is considered as a rude attempt to mock China. Such sensitivity should not escape a Chinese educated mind.

Japanese Imperialism started long before WWII when it annexed Korea. Due to geo-political reasons, Japanese had always harbor the intention of attacking and conquering China. Throughout history, many of the Chinese dynasties have been fighting off Japanese invasions or piracy along the eastern coast.

Except for the Mongolian Yuan Dynasty, which was considered as a foreign dynasty set up by foreign invaders, most of the 5000 years of ancient Chinese dynasties were contended with their own immediate territories.

There were tributary systems set up in Chinese history but basically, these states were just left alone. Interesting enough, on the contrary, quite a number of Chinese dynasties were formed by “Foreign invaders” like the Mongolians, Manchurian and they were constantly invaded by the Western and Southern tribes.

To suggest China having Imperialistic tendency is basically a hypothesis without any basis or historical backing. Unlike Japan, historically speaking, Chinese has not shown any such ambition to rule the world. Chinese dynasties are mostly inward looking and sometimes, even Xenophobic which resisted interaction with foreign states. Chinese dynasties might have requested tributes from other states but that’s basically out of Imperial Egos more than anything else.

Westerners were the ones who created colonialism out of their Imperialism. Japanese learned from the Western powers. But China? Most of the time it was the victim of such Imperialist Colonialism.

I do not like one party rule in China as well as Singapore. I do not like Communist rule in China as well. [Err so how come he telling Honkies that they should kiss China’s ass? He’s making himself really unpopular among the progressives in HK.] But we have to look at the REAL ACTUAL context and refrain from direct agitation or provocation against the emerging powers like China.

When we recognize ourselves as just a small little tiny city state, then it would only be wise to stay focused on the balance.

We had subjected ourselves to British and American Imperialism before and we had swallowed it while maximizing every opportunities we could find in between. That’s the cruel reality we face throughout history.

The problem of Economic-Political dominance by any huge country or Super power is a common problem that small countries face throughout history. But very few will stick their heads out and get slammed in the end.

I would say that the problem lies with the stubborn mindset of “superiority” of the past which doesn’t want to change according to the dynamic change and shift of geo-economic and political balance.

Those in powers must realize that we are no longer “superior” in any terms over the “long backward China”. The feeling of uneasiness and threats is the result of the dissonance between past egoistic superiority mindset entrapped in current awe of a rapid emerging power in China.

Although we might not want to subject ourselves totally to China’s dominance but it would be naive to think that we could go head on against it, thinking that we should be more superior in any context.

For a start, such provocative speech by politicians should be avoided. We can show concern, worries or even urge for more effective strategies to deal with an emerging giant at our doorstep, but the last thing we need is to provoke it.

Goh Meng Seng

Btw, do remember that he’s a fan of Amos who says sex with children is OK. The above pix of Bozo’s brother was taken at a “Support Amos” do.

Want to slime WP Low, but kanna sai instead by TRE readers. I’m on their side.

  1. a well-known western university ought to award you a ph.d. in asian history.

  2. I thought LTK was talking about GST increase and use of government reserves; why does GMS talk about imperialism and chinese history? in any case, if he wants to get organized for the next election, he need to talk about welfare for singaporeans instead; like, Kevlyn Lim crying over the plight of single mothers at election rally, a few months later government changed rules to allow some maternal benefits for single mothers; that’s more than CSJ, LTK, GMS did ever to help single mothers
