Jufrie Mahmood playing racial card

I was surprised to see a Hari Raya message this year coming from the SDP. The presenter is none other than SDP CEC member Jufrie Mahmood. He's the most ideal candidate since he is the most senior Muslim SDP member.

When I read his article today, I got a shock. (By the way, SDP claims that the article is an "amalgamation of several discussions with ordinary Singaporeans").

In the article, he wrote: "A Government leader tried to make us believe that I as a Malay enjoy special privileges under the constitution. In fact we Malays have not received any special treatment."

He provides no elaboration on what he envisages. And instead, he leaves us guessing and making our self-judgement. But the meaning is there. He's playing the racial card. Why would he want to mention about special Malay privileges? Is he saying that if SDP were to be the Government of the day, then Singapore Malays would be a special class from the rest? Is SDP attempting to split Singaporeans racially?

He also wrote: "The fact that Changi is number one really has nothing to do with me."

How Singaporean could that be? Does SDP want Singapore to fail?

As naive as could be, he added "But are we not supposed to be living in the First World and enjoying the Swiss standard of living?"

Should Singaporeans be fed with gold spoon from the moment they are born? Does SDP want meritocracy to be scraped and usher in a welfare state or worst still, a communist state?

Singaporeans are fortunate to be living in a peaceful society where the possibility of being starved is real low. Have you ever read about Singaporeans starving to death? NO. Instead we read about Jufrie Mahmood and friends' complaints on why the wealth of the deserved is not channelled to the lower strata.

SDP sells party newspapers instead of doing grassroots work

In yet another publicity stint, the SDP has started selling its party newspapers to people. Just when the Government is setting out to integrate new citizens here, the SDP is fighting back by attempting to split Singaporean society. The latest issue of SDP's newspapers is on the foreigners and locals paradigm.

Just less than a year ago, the SDP launched the Tak Boleh Tahan campaign, setting up booths to increase the grievances of locals in view of the economic recession. The campaign, which initiated with a great start, has now gone into silence. The fight for the commoners has now ceased.

Instead, SDP now "visited Tampines, Bedok and Geylang Serai during the Hari Raya period as well as the Central Business District during lunch time to sell the newspaper." The importance of raising funds for the party is now more important than fighting for the people.

It is now evident that SDP is eyeing the Bishan-Toa Payoh GRC, since it has been doing its rounds there (whenever it does). One wonders how SDP is going to win, when it is out of touch of the constituents and is not doing anything practical and concrete for the residents of Bishan-Toa Payoh GRC.

The SDP reported an interview with an Auntie that has difficulties in finding a job and who is maintaining "high expenses". The interview was laden with complaints. But Guess WHAT? The SDP just took away her money by selling her its party newspapers.

SDP took 3 years to start publishing newsletter

SDP proudly announced that it will start selling its newsletter to "help the party raise funds" after SDP stopped selling 3 years back.

It sure took SDP a very very very long time to prepare for its party papers. 3 years!

Could you imagine if SDP forms the government one day?

When that day comes, the headline will go "10 years wait for rental flats".

SDP is Party above Country

This is a proud moment for SDP, having one of the lowest membership as a political party in Singapore, to be photographed as a party.

Considering the fact that 12 of these people are the CEC members, there are a total of 39-12=27 SDP ordinary members. And thinking that some of these people are spouses of members.... well, there's a real long way to go for SDP.

But the main point is...

SDP is the political party that sees itself as a higher entity compared to our country Singapore. In the photo, members hold the party flag up high, higher than the National flag.

SDP's website frequently publishes foreign news about Singapore that puts Singapore in a negative limelight. SDP capitalises on these news sources to discredit Singapore and Singaporeans.

From the photo, we can now be sure that SDP is not pro-Singapore. They just want to be your party, your voice, but not your countryman.

SDP supports screening of video of Singapore Traitor

SDP reported that Seelan Palay has submitted a video about Francis Seow.

It makes one wonder if SDP is really pro-Singapore. As we all know, Francis Seow was accused of having received funds from the United States and advice for the purpose of promoting democracy in Singapore.

Unlike our revered Opposition figure Joseph Benjamin Jeyaratnam who took on the PAP lawsuits one by one, Francis Seow fled Singapore and lived in exile ever since. Not so surprisingly, he is now a US citizen.

On one hand SDP wants to rid Singapore of foreign labour and talents, but on the other hand it admires the Singaporean who had betrayed his country and gave up Singapore's citizenship.

It doesn't take much to show how SDP is actually anti-Singapore.
