Shanmugam: No Ban On Things Just Because People Find Them Offensive

Shanmugam: No Ban On Things Just Because People Find Them Offensive

Law and Home Affairs Minister is at it again, this time saying that many people in Singapore may find things very offensive, but the Government will not ban all of those things that people find offensive. He neglected to mention that the Death Metal group Watain got banned precisely because some people started to find the group offensive on the day of the band's performance itself.

Shanmugam Preaches That Allowing Watain To Perform In SG Can Affect Social And Religious Harmony

Shanmugam Preaches That Allowing Watain To Perform In SG Can Affect Social And Religious Harmony

He does not, however, say why the Singapore government in the first place allowed the band to perform here with a Restricted 18 (R18) rating. This means the band have been told to abide with other “stringent requirements” put in place, including the removal of religiously offensive songs, references to religion or using religious symbols, and ritualistic acts on stage. But they then the last minute ban? If the government had known all along that the band represents a danger to our social and religious harmony, why were they allowed to come in to SG in the first place? And only ban them last minute, on the day of the concert itself? Is it because of pressure from some entity that the government must kowtow to?

DISQUIET OVER SENTENCING OF A MONSTER? NOT UPROAR MEH?

Note with amusement on how the media is reporting on Minister Shanmugam's comments about that Monster Joshua Robinson case. In the media reports, it is said that there is an online disquiet on the issue, as the sentence and the crime does not seem to be enough.

Seriously, disquiet? What we have is an uproar! What kind of monster who preys on innocent young children, destroys their lives, and yet gets only 4 years in jail with no canning? This is no disquiet! But wait, did Minister Shanmugam himself said disquiet? What?! Dear Minister sir, disquiet is when we are not happy over our monthly paychecks, as compared to yours. Uproar is when almost the whole Singapore online community is up in arms at this sentencing meted out this Monster. Hardly enough for the crimes he committed.

SGREANS CAN TRUST GOVT, BUT SHOW US TRANSPARENCY FIRST

He also explained the need for the 30 per cent increase in water tariffs – the first in 17 years – which was announced last month. He pointed out that one- and two-room HDB households will not see any nett increase at all, while for most other HDB flats, the nett increase will only be between $2 and $11 per month.”

I believe Singaporeans generally trust the Government about its use of the people’s money. This trust may be further enhanced if there is more transparency on how our money is invested and used.

GOVT ARE EFFICIENT IN USING OUR MONEY, TRUST THEM!

Home Affairs and Law Minister Shanmugam says Singaporeans have to trust the government on how they are efficient in the use of money? This guy is a bloody joker, always say something that seems like he wants to invite crtiticism.

Of course Singaporeans have no choice but to trust the bloody government in how efficiently they use our money! How else are we going to check on them? After all, 70% of us already gave them the mandate to ownself check ownself! And when we have opposition, the dear Minister and his "yes-men" shot them down and portrayed them as useless, and unable to use town council money properly.

MIN SHANMUGAM TAKES NUS PROF TO TASK OVER RELIGIOUSLY INSENSITIVE REMARKS

"Dr Khairudin has “encouraged vilification” of the individual who brought the matter into the public eye. Describing Dr Khairudin’s conduct as “wrong and unacceptable”, “He seems to suggest that it is okay for the imam to have said what he said, including that Jews and Christians should be defeated. He assumes that the imam intended to say that, and sees nothing wrong with that. He has jumped into this, without verifying the facts, without checking the context. And supports a position that is quite contrary to the norms, values and laws in Singapore.”
