Apparently, by being a bigger brat and bully. It has been the most internationally embarrassing fiasco both for Singapore and Singaporeans.

There is a stark lack of tolerance in the society. Everyday now, in Singapore, we are bound to witness Singaporeans taking offence to someone or trying to show the incompetence, carelessness, inadequacy or just an honest mistake of another. It has become a way of life. Many seek gratification and self-worth through being offended. Something is terribly wrong somewhere. It is definitely not a happy 50th.

Comment on Sri Lanka: Colombo Telegraph facing censorship despite presidential promise by Scorpio https://www.indexoncensorship.org/2015/07/sri-lanka-colombo-telegraph-facing-censorship-despite-presidential-promise/#comment-2371628 Tue, 28 Jul 2015 19:57:56 +0000 https://www.indexoncensorship.org/?p=68132#comment-2371628 I find the Telegraph an intellectual paper that is worth reading, there is nothing malicious in their article . They are definitely not biased, the minute they start praising the Present government, all censorship will be withdrawn. I give thumbs up to this paper.

The king is the first business man and the chef of the executive branch and the supreme religious leader. He is the real superman.

Comment on Open letter to the King of Morocco in support of Ali Lmrabet by Zemmouri https://www.indexoncensorship.org/2015/07/an-open-letter-to-the-king-of-morocco-in-support-of-ali-lmrabet/#comment-2371619 Mon, 27 Jul 2015 20:16:22 +0000 https://www.indexoncensorship.org/?p=68170#comment-2371619 Ali Lmrabet is not only a member of a radical left-wing organisation masquerading as human rights body in Morocco (a body which seems to be quite the expert at producing “independent journalists”). He also has the honor of being Morocco’s Walter Duranty – without, of course, having even half the journalistic skills or credentials. A poor man’s spy. Nothing more, nothing less. So it does come as a surprise that other journalists from around the world would come running to his defence, especially considering the damage he does to the repute of the profession in Morocco. That being said, for however crooked his journalism appears, that’s not the fundamental reason why Ali Lmrabet is being “denied” his alleged right to a Moroccan identity. The fact of the matter is Ali Lmrabet provided false/fraudulent information whilst attempting to renew his papers. When did that ever become acceptable practice? Indeed, Morocco is a country aspiring to the rule of law and crooked Moroccan “journalists” with powerful “western” allies will just have to accept that.

We have a great leader who is the supreme leader of our Moroccan nation and is the best leader in the World by all means. Unfortunately, there are some people who think they know it all and want to change the Moroccan society to a society that is full of mischieves, homosexualities, disrespect to our parents and families. Morocco is a Modern muslim country and NOT a Western one. Bear in mind that this Islamic values that we have should be protected and preserved. For this reason I denonce the support of this journalist and my advice to him is that he should remain in an other country. Vive le Roi et vive le Maroc et vive les Amazighs

The citizens of Sri Lanka should be given the right to read the pros and cons, not praise a government who is hiding their dirty linen. Even if these papers are censored the people of the country are not morons, they know how to make up their minds and choose the ruler, there are papers like DM who are pro RW and I do not read them.

Comment on Letter: Academic freedom is under threat and needs urgent protection by shiv https://www.indexoncensorship.org/2015/06/academic-freedom-open-letter/#comment-2371589 Sat, 25 Jul 2015 06:26:09 +0000 https://www.indexoncensorship.org/?p=66624#comment-2371589 It is important to ask many of these who have signed the petition. have they really practiced what they are preaching?for example, if these signatories are rabid leftists will they allow views from rabid right or even centrists? have their institutions practiced freedom of expression? I know for sure Harvard or Oxward only allow leftist or “so called” liberal viewpoints and these academicians are the real noisy brats going around saying their freedom of expression is threatened.Those who are studying in these institutions know the incidents where academicians deliberately not allowed contrary view points.Let them clean their houses first before entering public forum.yes, am saying they are a bunch of hypocrites.Academic institutions are a mafia self promoting similar viewpoints, coming down heavily on those having opposite opinion or worse not even allowing them space within their close knit each patting the back of other community.
