After giving Singaporeans a lecture on hate speech against foreigners, PAP MP Sim Ann now takes a dig at Singaporeans for ‘whining’ too much.
In a post on her Facebook, Ms Sim insinuated that Singaporeans should start doing something more useful by slaying the two ‘sacred cows’ – ‘cow-peh and cow-bu’ which is a Hokkien term for ‘crying father and crying mother’ (complaining).
Unfortunately, her warped sense of humor was not appreciated by many netizens who lampooned her for it:
“a! yeah! all Cow-peh Cow-bu shld be slayed. what’s there to converse anyway? just continue milking the cow which will not cow-peh or cow-bu lor” – Samson Chow
” I don’t think it is appropriate for a MP like Sim Ann to post this on her fb. As a MP, she need to sensitive and considerate for the feeling of certain group of subjects who might be involved. This may arise an unneccessary conflict again and split the nation further. Shouldn’t an MP suppose to play a part in promoting unity among people?” – Alexandra Lau
“Before the conversation even started, she has terminated the conversation. Totally ignorant of the gripping feeling. Sad” – Ace Kay
PAP leaders have always dismissed the legitimate complaints of Singaporeans as ‘noises’ with its Supreme Leader Lee Kuan Yew once describing Singaporeans as ‘champion grumblers’ in an interview with National Geographic magazine in 2009.
