Look daddy and mummy! I'm making a xenophobic loser statement that I think damn cool! Yeah! Xenophobes Not Dead!
Last Saturday's protest was an eye-opener! Ignoring the rain, people actually give a shit when it comes to livelihood bread and butter issues! Compared to the other liberal rights protests by at Hong Lim park when nobody goes except maybe the 5 journalists, 50 plainclothes mata and 5 hardcore supporters, which is almost like a PAP rally in the boredom-meter!
More foreigners, as far as the mob at the event think, means no jobs as they were stolen by foreigners, no wives as they stolen also by foreigners, no space on MRT trains, not enough housing, foreigners jacking up COE and buying Ferraris and beating red lights to crash into taxis at junctions.
Anyway if xenophobia is in the minds of the public's blame game on their woes, it's their right. Sure, blame the Other. Right. People are free to rant what they want at their own risk of being seen as whiners. What was funny was that Gilbert Goh was exposed as a xenophobic twat with that post stereotyping foreigners in Singapore. That comment on finding Viet women in Joo Chiat! LOL Even Siew Kum Hong TOC lawyer was so pissed that he said he rather have 2 million more foreigners than one more Gilbert Goh. Poor demagogue Gilbert. And he sabo the speakers in that xenophobic protest who did not know it was a xenophobic protest. Vincent Wijeysingha who was from TWC2 before had to explain that he was not xenophobic during his speech even, to distance himself from Gilbert publicly. His Home and TWC2 friends, busily helping PRC and Bangla workers must be facepalm the whole Saturday afternoon that Vincent got himself into this shit.
WP was not there as they are quite disciplined and restrained, cautious of being seen as opportunistic. Again, good instinct and leadership from Low Thia Khiang to keep WP away from such rabble. Imagine if WP went, seduced by what they thought was easy scoring of political points by just turning up at Hong Lim Park that afternoon. In the end as things fell apart, the stain of being xenophobic would have stuck on them too. Vincent from SDP was there. Ravi Philemon from NSP was also there. So it was actually like a mini-opposition unity minus WP rally, with president losers Tan Kin Lian and Tan Jee Say and all probably regretted their involvement with Gilbert Goh.
Cute kids but cock parents. Asking gina to carry these kind of placards is damn lame and low.
