CSJ: WE SHOULD NOT LABEL CHILDREN LIKE AMOS AS “NIGHTMARES”

PAP Minister, Ms Grace Fu, is reported to have said: “It’s not just any YouTube video. It crosses the red line on religion. But I think that Amos Yee is not doing himself or his family any favors. How do you deal with a 16-year-old that is not able to comply with rules of society? It’s kind of a parent’s nightmare.”

DR CHEE SOON JUAN: PAP MUST STOP PERSONAL ATTACKS IN POLITICS

The assault on Mr Amos Yee last week as he was walking to court shocked many Singaporeans. Lest we think that this was an isolated incident, it should be noted that the discussion against Amos had been building up to a climax, with expressions of hate often accompanying the comments. We should not be surprised therefore that someone took it upon himself to express his emotions through a violent act. It is the PAP’s rhetoric, often bordering on incitement, that provides the substratum for mistrust and hate.

SDP: PAP HAS NOT GIVEN UP ON INCREASING POPULATION TO 6.9M

Dr Chee Soon Juan warned that Singaporeans should be careful in believing that the PAP has withdrawn its intention to increase our population to 6.9 million. In his Parliamentary speech in February 2013, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong backtracked on the 6.9 million figure after Singaporeans expressed outrage over his intentions to expand the population size.

JEREMY CHEN: SDP LIED ABOUT MY POOR FACEBOOK CONDUCT

Writing to The Real Singapore in his capacity as SDP Assistant Secretary General, Christopher Ang made claims that my departure from the party was due to poor conduct on social media. Those claims are deceitful and a poor attempt to deflect. Briefly, this is why:

JEREMY CHEN: I GOT KICKED OUT OF SDP FOR CRITICISING CHEE SOON JUAN

I've been booted out of the Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) discussion group. These were my last two messages to them. If what I say is false, say it. I've been told by CEC members that CSJ lied. (I had no way of knowing if he did or not otherwise.) If CSJ seeks to punish those that did not cover up his lie, then it says even more about his character. Let's just say, all this is not said lightly. The party has to assert the principles it stands for, or be just another political hack seeking "votes at all costs".

SDP MEMBER: CHEE SOON JUAN IS AN INCOMPETENT & UNPRINCIPLED MAN

I joined the SDP because it was supposed to stand for rights, democracy and promoting the well-being of Singaporeans. There are many good people in the party, but I'm disappointed by the party leader. As much as he pretends to be a warrior for democracy, and as much as the marketing (combined with the idealism of people such as me) has people fooled, the truth about Chee is much much more sad.

CHAN CHUN SING: FAMILIES WITH $1,000 INCOME CAN BUY HDB FLAT

On Thursday, in Minister Chan Chun Sing's sharp rebuke to SDP Head Chee Soon Juan, he repeated the government's claim that families earning $1,000 per month can afford a HDB. He said: “Singaporean families earning $1,000 a month can indeed afford their own flats because of various housing grants,” Mr Chan said in a letter to the local press. “As a result, the lowest 20th percentile of households have an average net home equity of $200,000. That is an achievement no other nation in the world can boast of.”
