I want to know why no sedition act was thrown at the following people for making certain racist, antireligious, and misogynistic remarks that were much more offensive and shocking, in view of their status as national leaders and the very public avenues their remarks, which have caused popular condemnation or moral outrage in their time:
Former MP Choo Wee Khiang, in 1992, made a speech to Parliament "One evening, I drove to Little India and it was pitch dark but not because there was no light, but because there were too many Indians around."
Recommended by Anonymous Coward: "double standards at work, its quite obvious that the seditious bloggers episode has nothing to do with sedition and everything to do with blogging. how effective can totalitarian control of the press be? how can singapore continue to maintain its coveted 147th position in the press freedom rankings if this state of events is allowed to continue? as shown by it slipping to 140th.. haha"
