TOC now part of constructive, nation-building media?

In Uncategorized on 20/02/2019 at 7:25 am

Wah lan! Who who would have tot this possible? TOC is now amplifying ST’s constructive, nation-building messages that “The PAP govt really cares S’poreans, really they do” and “Vote PAP”.

I kid u not. Further to Wah lan! TOC praises PAP govt there’s now this paean to the PAP on TOC’s FB page (Skip it if it churns yr stomach, I nearly vomited):

… Singaporeans from older folk and young people give thumbs-up to budget

“Retiree Karin Tan, 64, told ST that she is “very happy” with the package. “I am currently already retired, and do not draw any income. This will help subsidise my medical costs,” she said.

Another Merdeka Generation member, Ameerali Abdeali, praised the government, “I appreciate the recognition and validation that members of my generation are being given for our contributions to the country.”

ST said that the young people it spoke to, welcomed the announcement that the Government will invest in long-term plans to protect Singapore from the effects of global warming. Heng had announced a carbon tax on this year’s emissions and would later launch the Zero Waste Masterplan.

Undergraduate Arjun Dhar told ST, “We are a city with the highest greenery density in the world, in which otters live in the middle of our central business district.”

“As we reflect on the Bicentennial, Singapore should also look to inculcate in all individuals a sense of care for the planet that nurtures us. This means replacing the idea that we are too small to make a difference with the idea that we each have a responsibility to try,” he said.

Ms Pamela Low, 24, a member of the Singapore Youth for Climate Action also told ST in the interview, “The Government eagerly investing in infrastructure to mitigate rising tides and sharing about it at the Budget shows the urgency of addressing the impact of climate change on the national agenda as it would become costlier in the future.”

No it’s not as though Terry and the writer of this piece “Correspondent” have gone over to the Dark Side. Juz an “honest mistake” methinks because the piece ends on the an anti-PAP note, but who reads to the end? Only cybernuts, not most S’poreans.

And why did TOC highlight on FB the pro-PAP propaganda of ST? Some subversive working in TOC? Or juz a clueless intern? And Terry forgot to take his “PAP are wrong wrong” medicine before supervising his team?

Time to take writing and presentation lessons from me? I’ll give Terry and Correspondent a discount.

But I could be wrong. If Terry gets a light “sentence” over his persecution prosecution for criminal defamation and if Correspondent has move into a district 10 bungalow from his HDB flat, the two Jedi have been seduced to the Dark side by the Men In White.

Or maybe More evidence that being anti-PAP is bad for yr mental health?
