China’s netizens rally behind Sun Xu and agree with him that Singaporeans are ‘DOGS’!!!
Posted by temasektimes on March 1, 2012
NUS PRC scholar Sun Xu has become famous overnight not only in Singapore, but in Hong Kong and China as well where his remarks on there ‘being more dogs than humans in Singapore.’ are given extensive publicity by the local media.
While Hong Kong’s netizens have expressed their support for Singaporeans on the issue, China’s netizens are mostly behind Sun Xu with many applauding him for his verbal insult on Singaporeans.
Below are some comments from China’s netizens on a Chinese forum:
“Well said! Singapore is only an obedient dog which wags its tail behind the United States.”
“Nowadays, one needs to apologize for speaking the truth.”
“Well scolded! Westernized Chinese are most disgusting. They think they are ‘whites’, but are merely dogs.”
“Singapore has higher income than Hong Kong and with stricter laws, they are more ‘dog’, hence can attract Chinese to the colony to be ‘dogs’.”
“Agree there are many ‘dogs’ in Singapore.”
“I think he is wrong – in Singapore, the number of dogs equal to the number of humans.”
“Singapore is a small Chinese state enjoying the dignity given to them by big China. It is correct to say that there are more dogs than humans in Singapore. It’s easy to change a country, but not ‘dog’s nature.’”
Despite the fierce anti-Singapore rhetoric, there were a few sensible voices blaming Sun Xu for ‘shooting his mouth off’.
One Chinese netizen expressed support for Sun Xu to be expelled:
“He (Sun Xu) is really spoilt to enjoy free education from college to university. Not only did he not express gratitude (to Singaporeans), he turned around and scold them. Such ingrates will create trouble no matter where they go, he should be expelled and sent back to China.”
Sun Xu will be attending a disciplinary hearing convened by NUS on 13 March where his fate will be decided. Education Minister Heng Swee Keat had earlier said the onus is on NUS to “investigate the matter and to take disciplinary action against Sun Xu if he was found to have flouted NUS’s code of conduct for its student.”
Born to a wealthy and influential family in the affluent city of Suzhou, Jiangsu province, Sun Xu first came to Singapore in 2006 on a MOE scholarship to study in River Valley High School after which he went on to study at Raffles Junior College and NUS where he majored in Mechanical Engineering.
Unlike other students born in Singapore, Sun Xu did not have to pay a SINGLE CENT for his education in Singapore from secondary school all the way to university.
Senior Parliamentary Secretary, Ministry of Education & Ministry of Law Ms Sim Ann revealed recently in Parliament that the Singapore government spends some $36 million dollars on scholarships to over two thousand students each year, or about S$174,00 per scholar.
Foreign scholars like Sun Xu at NUS and other Singapore universities have their tuition fees and living expenses all covered by their scholarships. They are also guaranteed a well-paying job upon graduation as part of their bond and the men are exempted from National Service unlike male Singapore citizens who are burdened with a hefty tuition loan and rendered uncompetitive in the job market by their mandatory reservist obligations such as IPPT and in-camp training.
