Malaysian Albert Tye wants PM Lee to crack down on critics of ‘rational’ immigration policy
Posted by temasektimes on August 30, 2012
Mr Tye began his letter by lashing out at netizens for attacking immigrants online:
“The behaviour of some netizens not only reflect poorly on Singaporeans, their postings are also extremely offensive. Netizens have been getting away – and going overboard – with their anti-new immigrant postings with impunity; particularly in attacks against mainland Chinese.”
He also insinuated that the authorities have been too ‘tolerant’ towards critics of the ‘rational’ immigration policy and suggest ‘reining in’ them.
“It appears that there exist some instigators whose sole intention is to agitate the young and discredit a rational immigration policy…..In fact, I wonder why the authorities are so tolerant especially in view of their immediate crackdown on scurrilous remarks that threaten social harmony.”
According to information posted on his Facebook, Mr Tye graduated from the University of Malaya. He counts a few WP MPs as his ‘friends’ among whom is NCMP Yee Jenn Jong who recently won plaudits from the state media for ‘endorsing’ Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s National Day Rally.
The Workers Party has maintained a DEAFENING SILENCE on the issue so far probably out of fear of offending the PAP.
