We have received numerous emails from Singaporeans saying how they have been fooled by the state-media into thinking that Dr Chee Soon Juan is bad for Singapore. We reproduce a small sample of the emails we have received in this topic in just the last few days.
Dear Dr Chee,
I am a resident living in the Holland-Bukit Timah GRC which your team is contesting in in this upcoming general elections.
In the past, I used to feel that you were nothing but a disgrace to the opposition by carrying out your actions without much thought or having any form of a strategy.
In the past few months however, my impression of you and your party has changed dramatically. I watched your appeal to US President Obama. While the president is probably too busy to constantly be meddling in our small country’s political affairs, and much less so be watching your plea on Youtube, I was struck by your conviction and drive.
I watched the video of you giving a speech at NUS. And I thought, this guy isn’t the lunatic I once thought he was. He is eloquent, intelligent, and courageous.
After a little reflection, I realized that it is really the mainstream media that has etched the image of a crazy dr chee into the minds of Singaporeans.
You were imprisoned, made bankrupt, imprisoned again…yet you have never stopped your political activism and have continued fighting for what you believe in.\
