Outcry over PRC flag hanging in HDB estate as PM Lee calls on Singaporeans to help new citizens ‘fit in’
Posted by temasektimes on July 22, 2012
Even as Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong continues to call on Singaporeans to integrate with the immigrants and to help them ‘fit in’, a massive outcry has erupted in cyberspace over a shocking photo depicting a PRC flag being hung side by side a Singapore flag in a HDB flat in Hougang.
As Singapore’s National Day approaches, PAP grassroots leaders have been busy hanging the Singapore flags along the corridors of HDB flats to instill a fake sense of ‘patriotism’ among burnt-out Singaporeans who are struggling to make ends meet.
However, in one unit in Hougang, a PRC flag could be seen hanging in public, much to the chagrin of angry Singaporeans:
While the Singapore police was quick to arrest a 13 year old Singapore girl for burning the Singapore flag, no action was taken against this PRC new citizen family yet for displaying the PRC flag publicly.
Some comments from netizens on Facebook:
“its funny… govt here asking us to integrate with them and here they are, forever displaying their defiant behaviour…. alamak, pls la, PAP… should ask them to integrate with the locals la…. we singaporeans have been accommodating foreigners all these years with no issues until the defiant ones came knocking at our door… open your eyes and see can?” – Jessie Wan
“What does this tell us? The failed policy of integration of our PAP government. It means that China is the country and Singapore is a province flying it’s provincial flag. We have lost our sense of belonging of our country….” – Lee Wee Kiat
“Arrest 17 years old youths for racist remarks, then go arrest those PRCs also! This doesn’t concern just about racism, but nationalism! Police force, please do your freaking job fairly!” – Apple Ling
“How to arrest when PM call to intregrate with the foreigner trashes. See this is one good example of foreigners thinking they have superiority over spore. Sg govt just suck thumb….sit down…n watch at their own mess created” – Mohd Amin
