We Are Against Pink Dot in Singapore, or WAAPD, has been around for quite a while, hasn’t it? Many of us actually have friends who follow/are in the group, liking and sharing content from and to the page group. Me? 2 of my Facebook Friends are part of this 7,800 member strong group.
Week after week, I’ve held back from writing about them. Mostly because I felt like they weren’t worth it. I’ve read so many of their posts, comments and thoughts, but never acted.
Today, I regret not acting.
My regret for not speaking up comes after reading an online post about how Bryan Lim advocated shooting Pink Dot supporters and attendees on the WAAPD Facebook Group, in particular, this post:
Bryan Lim is no simpleton. He works as a Performance Consultant with Canon. He’s a professional, who teaches and educates people. Bryan Lim is, for all intents and purposes, could be your colleague, friend or family.
They even justify his behaviour, by saying people have taken his words “out of context”
So Bryan didn’t want to kill Pink Dot supporters, but wants to kill Bloomberg Employees now. The question from me is this: If Bryan meant to kill Bloomberg’s non-Singaporean employees, is that still acceptable?
But it doesn’t end here…
…because people like Eugene Chin has decided that 50 dead, massacred gay people was a blessing for the world.
Guess what? Eugene Chin‘s Facebook account is chock full of Swastikas and Nazi Imagery. Don’t believe me? Here’s the screen grab:
There’s the Nazism, and the Wermacht exacting some terrifying violence.
We’re not even half way through though
Wilrick Wong has decided to dispense some violent justice in the form of Hokkien Slangs
He wants to Bash the Ah Gua (Transsexual/Transvestite).
To them, all gay people are Harbingers of AIDS
This was in direct response to the Orlando Shootings.
The Orlando Shooting is a cumulation of hate like this.
Much like the hate and violence that the people above speak of. They want to shoot, bash, and kill people in the LGBT community. I despise that deeply, and I never want to see that happening here. I’m done staying silent.
I’m not gay, I’m strongly against advocating violence against the LGBT community. Let’s deal with this in a civilised manner, like that racist the last time round, please lodge a police report against all these violent individuals.
