PAP & strategic distraction

In Media on 04/12/2018 at 5:16 pm

Add in the PAP to the PRC govt and The Donald:

[T]he Chinese government and US president Donald Trump have in their own ways mastered the skills of “strategic distraction”. According to a recent Harvard University study, Chinese state propagandists create 448m posts on social media a year using a technique known as “reverse censorship”. As one of the report’s authors noted: “The point isn’t to get people to believe or care about the propaganda; it’s to get them to pay less attention to stories the government wants to suppress.” Similarly, Mr Trump’s tweetstorms are designed to distract not inform, sucking the oxygen out of political debate like a “distributed denial of service attack against the human will”.

Ever tot that that getting the cybernuts and other anti-PAP S’poreans winded-up over Kee Chiu becoming the next PM was (and still is) wayang to make sure that Heng the real deal gets favourable publicity. Kee Chiu is just the pantomime villain.

Most of time, the PAP doesn’t need because our ang moh tua kees, anti-PAP activists and cybernuts provide the distraction.

Don’t beliece me?

Think PJ Thum with his antics of meeting Tun: “Antics Of Civil Society Activists Endanger Opposition Cause” ; and his unnecessary misrepresentations about his excellent credentials: What Oxford really says about PJ Thum and Project Southeast Asia.

Then think Seelan Pillay: Seelan Palay is really very happy.

Next think about Willy Sum : Willy Sum: cybernuts’ new hero. He who alleged high level govt corruption.

Finally, think Mad Dog, Lim Tean and Meng Seng.

With these guys as enemies, even if the 4G leaders are a drove of donkeys, the PAP will win a two-thirds majority of the parly seats. Related post: Why S’poreans keep voting for the PAP (cont’d).
