Wah lan ang moh tua kee not happy we celebrating our founding by ang moh

Sir Stamford Raffles

I was shocked to read this from a real ang moh tua kee

Some countries are struggling with their colonial pasts, with many questions about inequality, exploitation, reparations (or, mostly, the lack thereof) and how all these things still factor into global politics and justice today.

Not Singapore! Let us come together this 2018 and commemorate the 200th anniversary of Raffles’ landing to make money out of this island and its people. Yay!

This came from Kirsten Han, a tual kee ang moh tua kee person.

As far as I’m concerned when Raffles came here, he wasn’t taking much of value from the Malays living here. In fact their leaders were very happy: Hussein Shah was paid $5,000 (Spanish silver dollars I think as this was the common trading currency in the region) a year while the local Temenggong received $3,000 a year. These are equivalent to several hundred thousand dollars each today.

So the

many questions about inequality, exploitation, reparations (or, mostly, the lack thereof)

don’t apply here.

Besides most of the value that was created came from the FTs from the traders from other parts of the Malay archipelago (think the Bugis, Boyanese etc), and from people coming from China, India and the UK.

So let’s not begrudge that an ang moh founded S’pore, and let’s celebrate the two hundred anniversary of his arrival here.

And as I always say, “I’m glad that S’pore was part of the British empire, and not part of the American, Japanese (except for a few yrs), French, Dutch or Chinese empires.”

  • Titiana Ann Xavier:

    Any celebration to commemorate the 200-year anniversary of the founding of S’pore by Sir Stamford Raffles will be exploited by the PAP government for political gains. Taxpayers’ monies can be put to better use. The PAP propaganda machinery will be in full swing to show how the PAP liberated Singaporeans from the yoke of British colonialism. Surprisingly, LKY and Nathan probably found that working for Japanese masters was more palatable than serving under the ang moh tua kee.

    Heng ah … sinkapoor under British colony, not Portugese, French, Spanish or other lousy colonisers.

    Why say liddat … at least British left behind a rich legacy for the subjects, not like those you see in Indonesia or Africa. Chin chia heng ah …kam siah ti kong.

  • Great Asia:

    Singapore has 75% Chinese, 15% Malays and 8% Indians.

    The Chinese and Indians have a few thousand years of history.

    The Malays have been living in this region for centuries, longer than the history of all the colonial powers. The Malays already living in this island and fishing in the surrounding waters even before the United Kingdom was founded (1535).

    The Great Asia has been saying – other than having a piece of Chinese skin, everything inside the feudal lord is white. Bananas don’t have culture and their history starts from 1819.

    Now his banana son is the PM, and we all are being forced to worship their family angmoh gods.

    Ha ha ha!

  • Bystander:

    This PAP mole has at last revealed himself in broad daylight.
    Only PAP and their slaves still living under the cloak of the past colonial masters. PAP wanna adopt the same high and mighty stance of the colonists to legitimate their 50 years unbroken rule over Sinkies.

  • SG200:

    Singapore is 200 years old, not the 50 years PAP made up to fit into the propaganda that PAP is the greatest. Sir Raffles was the one who transformed Singapore from fishing village to a world class city. SG50 is more accurately PAP50, under PAP one party rule for 50 years, Singaporeans are all confused, PAP is SG, SG is PAP, PAP is Gov and Gov is PAP, LKY is SG, etc.

    SG50 propagenda is used to con voters from naive voters, in the tune of 70%. LKY has been a trait*r all his life, not just for helping the Japanese. LKY isn’t the hero fighting for our independence, which our textbooks try to bluff our clueless youths. He was not fighting for independence, he was anti-colonial, he hate ang moh tua kee like CI. He fought for merger with Malaysian not independence, because he believe Singapore could not survive on it own. He broke down when we were kicked out from Malaysia, he thought we were doom. So it’s very clear that he was never for independence.

    LKY and his bunch were considered “anti-colonialist” at that time. These are dangerous people fighting for revolution. These people are equivalent to communist, Islamic extremest. And yet the British did not take him out or lock him up under ISA. So we can see a very strong distinction between the British government and PAP’s government, which does everything in it’s power to maintain it’s absolute power. LKY even shamelessly admitted that the army will be called in should there be a freak election. So it’s very clear that there is no SG50, only PAP 50.

  • I'm Halimah also Jiak Liao bee:

    During the last GE, Loony was riding on the popularity of his Old man’s legacy.
    We’ll be seeing an early election right after ’19 to see Loony riding on the Raffles celebration.
    Sinkies are real dumb to be taking in by the PAPIGS with all these feel good factors thrown at them.
