DR CHEE: THE PAP CALLS ME TRAITOR, JAILED & BANKRUPT ME BUT I WILL NOT KNEEL BEFORE THEM

Dr Chee Soon Juan’s Bukit Batok rally speech on 3 May 2016.

“The PAP continues to attack my character. They’ve called me all sorts of names: cheat, liar, gangster, traitor, psychopath, they’ve sacked me, jailed me, sued me and made me bankrupt. But I’m still standing.

The taunts, the insults, the punishments, the attacks have been unrelenting. But I do not bow to those who mock me nor will I bend to those who attack me. I will not kneel before them because one cannot stand up for one’s principles, for one’s beliefs and for one’s people on bended knees.

As long and as hard as the struggle has been, I walk with my head held high. I can do this because it doesn’t matter who the PAP says I am. What matters is God knows who I am, my wife and my children know who I am, and, most important, I know who I am.

And because that which does not kill you, makes you stronger, I have grown stronger with every attack.”
