MFA Ambassador-at-Large mocks Amos Yee once again: Nobody outside Singapore cares about “obscure” Yee

14632

Ambassador-at-Large at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Bilahari Kausikan, has alleged that an American friend has commented that Amos Yee – who has been identified as deserving of asylum in the United States of America – is obscure and that nobody outside Singapore cares about him:

An American friend’s comment on Amos:“Bilahari Kausikan He is already obscure. He has never been anything but obscure…

Posted by Bilahari Kausikan on Wednesday, 27 September 2017

Yee sought political asylum in the US after he was jailed twice in Singapore for his inflammatory comments in videos he published on Youtube criticising Christianity. He also criticised other religious groups, and late founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew in his videos.

As his asylum application was being processed, Yee was incarcerated at a Chicago detention centre for several months where he is believed to have been bullied by another inmate, placed in solitary confinement, and placed on suicide watch at different points in time.

This is not the first time Bilahari has mocked Yee.

The former MFA permanent secretary previously made fun of a claim made on Yee’s Facebook page that the Singapore Government was behind the teenager’s continued detention in the US.

Referring to the Facebook post that alleged, “We can only suspect interference by the Singaporean government as there would be no other legitimate reason for Amos to be detained for so long after being granted asylum by the court,” Bilahari said:

“[The] SG government has such great influence with the US government??? I did not know we were so powerful!”

Bilahari then accused “[those] who encouraged the boy to seek asylum” in the US for “making use of the boy and their family for their own anti-government agenda from the very beginning.”

“In fact the well-being of the boy and his family were probably the least of their considerations if this was ever a consideration in the first place. I feel sorry for the family who have been cynically manipulated.”

He, however, did not provide any evidence of his allegations.

Bilahari appeared to pick on Yee even before, in January this year, when he urged the US to “please” take him.

Meanwhile, Yee recently told American reporters that he has “plans for more videos, much of it criticising the Singapore government.”

He added that he may broaden his scope of criticism to criticise the US government as well.

    We should not ignore Amos Yee. Although he may not says things in a politically correct way…he is intelligent enough for the establishment to be wary of him and to cast a bad light on him.

    Bilahari Kausikan you’ve got your job cut out for you. Every time this boy makes an allegation you will have to refute it. As you said your American friend told you that no one outside Singapore gives a shit about AY but you on the other hand will be sleepless every night wondering what this narccissistic boy is going to say next. Have a good time entertaining him while we all sit back and laugh.

    ‘Nobody outside Singapore cares about “obscure” Yee’ ~ so obscure.. that an ambassador at large need to comment? Is that part of his role? Is he representing the Singapore government?

    There are two kinds of dogs. One is barking dog and the other is lapdog. Both don’t bite but a barking dog will alert the master when the intruders are around. However, a lap dog will sleep through the night as the comfort of sleeping with the master will make it so obscure to its duty. So in this case a barking dog like Amos Yee is a better option than a lap dog.

    Enough attention on this kid already. No one really cares for his opinion and why on earth is an ambassador making snide remarks of a 17 year old!?!? No better foreign policy issues to worry about !?

    He might be obscure and unknown to Americans… but let’s face it… since when do the majority of the American population know anything? I mean.. C’mon they’ve got Trump as president. That said… he still manages to rile Singaporeans up halfway across the bloody world lol must be doing something right rofl.

      Either yes &/or his conceited character.
      Out of no where, an unknown ‘Amos’ sparked trouble here with our Govt. and he attracted attention publicly by criticising the Govt & offending Christianity and the Muslim Faith.
      It’s understandable tt our Govt had no choice but to step in hard on him after he continuously defied the Law.
      Amos is considered an adult and the Law can legally charge him.

      Extract fr this post:
      ‘Not only is he going to criticise the SG Govt, he may start criticising the US Govt. as well’.

      In the US, they allow freedom of speech.
      But there are loyal supporters who may not accept his criticism and Amos needs to realise this.

      Chinese saying:
      ‘It is good to be smart,
      But do not try to outsmart those who are smarter than you.’

      It is his life and he decides his own fate!

    Well, the so-called ambassador at large must be an OBSCURE person himself to post a childish remark to remind readers that this scumbag ambassador at large is around. Just like Trump, he had to make some noise to bring himself out of insecurity to please his master who pays his salary.

    Hahaha. The very fact that he commented shows he ‘cares’! This Gila Cun* is among the worst of what gov-sg itself calls little people. Like it or not, Americans will see Amos as a hero of sorts, persecuted at the young age of 16 for his political beliefs. This is already affirmed by the 2 US courts despite gov-sg getting gov-us to obstruct it. And very definitely Amos has out shined this Gila Cun, in one stroke getting the worldwide publicity that Gila Cun cannot get in his entire career despite trying in every which way

    If this punk is not careful with the host country going around shooting off his bloody mouth he could be expelled. The majority of the American people didn’t know what he posted about Christianity. They would probably skin him alive if they knew what he said.

    This guy is hopeless lah. He is so deeply obligated to the pap government who did not prosecute him for committing a criminal offence in his younger days as he himself revealed. His father was the ambassador to Russia when he committed the offence which Nathan, then ISD director, decided not to press charges.

    I don’t understand why the media and some of the others are giving so much of importance to this pathetic mentally retarded insect. Just ignore this shit and he’ll be forgotten in no time.

    And nobody outside of this little pond gives a shit about what happens here. That’s why nobody sent congratulatory messages to our recently appointed President. Nobody knew or cared.

    He can criticise, insult singapore.
    He will be called up for N S soon.
    No escape even if he tries to renounce his citizenship- too late.
    He will face more ‘ free accommodations ‘ courtesy of the court.
    Or never ever step foot on Singapore soil again.
    No love loss either way !
    What does he win?
    It’s just like ‘ falungun ‘ cult anywhere in the world.

    “[The] SG government has such great influence with the US government??? I did not know we were so powerful!” – mmm perhaps the concept of liberty and freedom of speech, whatever the underlying economic agenda, is as important a unifier and source of strength…?

    FIRST, ROTTON STATE OF ORGAN THINKS NOBODY WOULD RETALIATE AGAINST THEM. SO JUST BULLY PPL AS THEY LIKE. AND ALSO BELIEVE THEY DON’T EXPECT AMOS WOULD SEEK ASYLUM IN USA.

    BUT NOW THINGS TRULY TURN INTO REALITY. SO, THIS AMBASSADOR, BEING ROTTON PAP’S LAPDOG, MUST BE FEELING VERY SOUR, VERY UNHAPPY WITH USA.

    THAT WAS WHY ROTTON LEADER LHL INSISTS ON BENDING TWDS THE WEST NOW, AFTER HIS COHORTS OBAMA STEPPED DOWN AND HILLARY FAILED TO LEAD USA.

    AND ALL HIS LAPDOGS JUST HV TO FOLLOW THE MASTER’S DECREE.
