Singaporeans who do not celebrate Feng’s victory are ‘morons and babies’ – 98.7FM deejays
Posted by temasektimes on August 3, 2012
In spite of the fact that the majority of Singaporeans do not feel proud of a foreign import winning an Olympics medal ‘for’ Singapore, the government-controlled media continues to churn out loads of propaganda hogwash day after day to ‘celebrate’.
China-born Feng Tianwei won an Olympic bronze medal when she defeated Japan’s Kasumi Ishikawa 4-0 in the women singles. Feng only ‘became’ a Singaporean in 2007.
While PAP leaders and their propaganda mouthpieces have been trumpeting the ‘victory’ as if it is some sort of life-and-death matter for Singapore, the response from the ground has been lukewarm so far.
With the chorus of disapproval growing louder from native Singaporeans, the state media strikes back by attacking critics and detractors of Feng’s victory as ‘losers’.
98.7FM deejays Justin and Vernon not only call on the ‘whole’ nation to celebrate the win by Feng Tianwei, but lampooned those who did not celebrate the win as ‘BABIES and MORONS’.
One angry Singaporean Harry Chen was furious at what he heard:
Feng’s bronze medal does not come for free. Under the Multi-Million Dollars Award Programme, Feng is expected to pocket a cool S$200,000 after returning S$50,000 to the Singapore table-tennis association.
Though Singaporeans are ultimately the ones paying for the bronze medal, they are now being branded as ‘babies and morons’ for not celebrating the win.
