Kirsten Han just happened to be there when the protest took place outside MOE? Don’t be fooled.
Parents should be wary of people like Kirsten Han. She is smart to keep herself safe and free, video recording the protest and providing a commentary while the students get arrested. Of course, she knew the students would be arrested. And that’s the whole purpose, isn’t it, to be arrested?
Watch your children, parents. Don’t let their future by ruined by activists with ulterior motives. Look at what happened to the youths in Hong Kong when the protests failed. Did those who promise them protection keep their promise? No. You are nothing to them once your usefulness is gone.
There are ways to push a cause. Just not this way. The arrests have nothing to do with the cause. Public protests and demonstrations are against the law, no matter what the cause is.
Who is Kirsten Han?
She needs no introduction. She relishes every opportunity to write to the foreign press to tarnish Singapore’s reputation to the international community.
At the height of the coronavirus surge in our migrant workers’ dormitories, she wrote article after article in the foreign press to paint a distorted view of Singapore’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak among migrant workers, and Singaporeans’ treatment of migrant workers.
During the time when youths in Hong Kong were engaged in violent protests, she wrote in the Hong Kong Free Press HKFP expressing her admiration for youths in Hong Kong and lamenting Singaporeans’ reactions to the violent protests, and how Singapore’s struggles with ‘democracy’ is a long way to go.
She wants foreign interference in domestic politics
She welcomes foreign interference and tells Singaporeans to push back against the Government for saying that foreigners should not intervene in domestic politics. She went with fellow activist, Thum Ping Tjin to Malaysia to ask Dr Mahathir to bring democracy to Singapore.
To her, Singapore is a ‘failed democracy’ because we don’t have 500,000 protestors in the streets
She once gave a talk to Singaporeans in which she said that her goal and that of her fellow activists is to have 500,000 people protesting in the streets. That, to her, is a sign of a maturing democracy. She also said that Singapore ‘fails as a democracy’ because we do not have 500,000 people protesting in the streets.
Remember Amos Yee?
Back when Amos was only 16, the freedom fighters were all egging him on and encouraging him. When Amos was convicted by the state court for his rants against religion, Kirsten wrote in her blog that Amos’ conviction left not just Amos traumatised and frightened. Presumably, it left many Singaporeans traumatised as well.
“Since Amos’ arrests we’ve perpetuated the idea that saying the wrong thing will get you in serious trouble in Singapore. That there is a reason to fear. That one should keep one’s mouth shut. That if the state won’t police you, there are always your fellow citizens who are up to the task. Perhaps it is not only Amos who emerged traumatised and frightened today.”– Kirsten Han –
Back then, she went fear-mongering about freedom of speech. But fast forward a few years, no activists, not Kirsten Han definitely, want to say anything about Amos Yee and we all know it’s not for lack of freedom of speech.
Amos Yee is no longer useful to them.
Let’s not forget who she works for and what she is fighting for. She will not hesitate to make use of youths for her own cause fighting for ‘freedom, rights and democracy’.
