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

The New Yorker — a publication with a tendency to be pretentiously serious and seriously pretentious

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.

Peace.

A stupid man’s report of what a clever man says can never be accurate, because he unconsciously translates what he hears into something he can understand.” – Bertrand Russell

    Libel for an opinion? Last I checked calling someone or something a pretentious fop wasn’t something that you can be sued for. It doesn’t imply that the writer or the mag was engaged in immoral or illegal acts. The only thing Belmont pointed out was the New Wanker, I mean Yorker’s marketing strategy. You know, puffed up liberal masturbation pieces for the American WASP East Coast elite, served with a side of patronizing racism.

    “What does combing one’s hair have to do with running a country?

    Because image and perception are vital to any potential political leader’s success? All political leaders carefully craft their public image, at least those that actually win anything. Amos and his bird nest hairdo and online troll persona does one thing, and that’s to project a smarmy, slovenly image. Because he knows very well he’s not about to impress anyone and his own writings leaves the impression he’s never popular or a leader in any capacity even at school. As it is, if Amos was leading a DOTA or World of Warcraft raid, his team mates will PK and tea-bag him.

    “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?”

    Well, maybe if Belmont actually matched Einstein’s achievements, he gets the free go. Einstein started a teaching Diploma course in advance physics and mathematics at Zurich Polytechnic by the time he was seventeen and had published a short essay on magnetic field a year earlier. Prior to enrolling for a teaching Diploma, he had completed his secondary studies in Switzerland with an exceptional grade in physics and mathematics.

    Amos Yee… is an online troll and school drop out. If he isn’t making any money on the videos, he’s also a NEET. Sure looks the part.

    “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.”

    Belmont saw and depicted Amos Yee for what he is and captured perfectly well the public persona the young troll was projecting. After all, an online troll, even when he gets into real trouble, is still an online troll.

    1. 1) Sure it’s an opinion key word construed.

      2) I love how you keep mentioning the word troll, in my experience the only people who call other people trolls are hypersensitive people who do not like having their opinions challenged, heck I wouldn’t be surprised if you started calling me a troll either just because I don’t think like you, the word troll doesn’t mean what it meant 10 years ago but back to the point of personal image, if you insist then, good politicians have clean cut images, thank goodness back in the day Americans voted for tall weird looking bearded man who abolished slavery and didnt care for the fact that he had a beard.

      3) Hey guess what else Einstein and Amos Yee have in common?
      Yeah they’re both dropouts, you know who else is a drop out, Thomas Edison.
      It’s still to early to see what kind of Achievements Amos might accomplish, so I refrain from giving praises or unnecessary critics on him, unlike you who constantly refers to the kid as a troll, refer to point 2 on calling someone a troll.

      4) Belmont’s opinions are not facts.
      Opinions are not facts, period.

      Have a nice day 🙂
