Running Folk out of Town ....

Postby Barnsley » Wed, 15 Jul 2015 11:53 am

With the latest non-story of an Ang Moh getting annoyed on Public Transport now making the daily papers in order to keep the story boiling it seems.

Will attempts to "run people out of town" become the norm for all trivialities?

I still can't believe this made a story , in the UK the kid would have been busted before he even got anywhere as quite rightly offensive slogans on T-shirts tend to be frowned upon thankfully.

It said "I am Ferking Special"

Thats what I understand from what I have read.

It actually had the full "F" word but this site filters swear words , which says it all when it comes to delinquents feeling the need to have a T-shirt with the word on it.

I am not keen on having swear words on T-shirts myself , smacks of desperation , like I said I am pretty sure its an offence in the UK to have such.

I don't see the problem with offensive t shirts quite frankly. people should be allowed to wear and express whatever they want.
and seriously who has time to read what some dick has on his body.

Seriously, I think the ang moh just forgot his medication ...getting offended at T shirt ? Seriously ?

Might have been a born again christian or an alcoholic on AA who needed a drink in a bad way.

this story would have been completely ignored if it wasn't for the white old guy. what, those ang mohs give us lessons in civilization? look at them! sshooooo ang moh!

of course, the video conveniently doesn't capture the earlier moments (surely this is how everything started? really, the kiddo didn't do something else?). everyone seems to overlook this part of the story, but hell, it's in "everyone" 's interest the story as it is ...

anyway, now they're clearly attacking on two fronts: employment laws + active discrimination (maybe physical threats soon). but they forgot one thing (same error the mighty tentera is making): there's nothing to be held/occupied in singapura, if the capitals flee. and the capitals are not local. it's a lost cause, but they don't realize it, yet. difficult to see through cardboard :mrgreen:

Not as seen but as you interpreted it. The Angmoh was grossly overreacting (IMHO) but as already mentioned we don't know what actually happened earlier.

I see that a minister has commented on the video and suggested that his employer should rethink his employment.
