This is the sort of articles Mothership.sg allows to be published?
This simple thoughtless guttural trash?

Just so you know, Sir, your opening statement could be construed as libel.
They could possibly take you on for defamation lawsuit if they wished.
Is this the kind of restriction you wish for, where you’re not allowed to criticize anyone?
Let me rephrase, is this the kind of restriction you wish, where you are only allowed to criticize people who have a different opinion to yours but anyone who shares your opinion or people you admire, are immune to criticism?
World Press index puts Singapore at 153 as I hope you know.
But seriously, many people know when you let stupid people talk, they do all the work of discrediting themselves for you, just like how you’re discrediting yourself and tarnishing the credibility of the website you’re associated with.
Yes, you read it right. Heller is saying that Singapore will be better off being run by people like Amos Yee, who cannot even comb his hair properly.
What does combing one’s hair have to do with running a country?
I had a principal in secondary school who couldn’t comb his hair either and made us sit on the floor of the courtyard to read books despite the fact that we wore white pants, he later had the audacity to say to us the residents around our school was complaining about our dirty pants.
Yes, the principal in this case was a moron, it’s not based on his appearance, it’s based on his actions.
Just like Albert Einstein couldn’t be bothered to do his hair, would you call him a moron just because he doesn’t comb his hair either?
You a grown man have still not realized that someone’s outwardly appearance do not reflect on their inwardly thoughts have a lot of growing up to do.
The questions then are: Since he is at it, why not suggest arming Amos Yee with a nuclear warhead too? And making him President of ‘Murcia?
I’m just speechless at the asininity of this statement.
I got a better idea, why not give Amos Yee god like powers and make him God.
Oh, did I just break blasphemy law?
Nah… I didn’t mention it was your god, for all you know I could have been talking about the Flying Spaghetti Monster that pastafarians satirically worship, you know because of his hair.
And before you tell me Flying Spaghetti Monster is not real, prove it.
What’s stopping Heller from calling Amos “the saviour of Singapore society in a post-Lee Kuan Yew era”? His sense of balance?
His sense of balance, his intelligence, his faith that people in Singapore are smart enough to think for themselves, more than I can say about you, Sir, judging from the lack of content in your “Article”.
Lee Kuan Yew’s daughter last week wrote about how there is a need to be wary of White Men with instructive bent who want to tell Singaporeans how to live.
On hindsight, useful advice, that.
You criticize the drivel that is her letter, which is just mindless I should be immune to criticism and the racist undertones, I just hope your last line was written with sarcasm intended.
You see social justice warriors, THIS is what happens when you spread around that “Healthy Cultural Paranoia” tripe, non white ignoramuses start thinking racism towards white people is okay.
