A blog post by Young PAP member, Nicholas Lazarus, has generated reactions from bloggers. Below is a listing of some of the bloggers who have written responses to his blog article.
The article – titled “The Alternative Vision For Singapore (and I mean Alternative!)” – can be found here (Young PAP blog).
Below is a screenshot of the article and Lazarus' subsequent comment, (click to enlarge):
Here are some extracts from various blogs:
A disgrace to YPAP – The Legal Janitor :
"If someone representing YPAP can be so abjectly devoid of any semblance of logical thought, then the rest of Singapore must be doomed. Quite simply, if a moron actually makes it to YPAP, then the average Singaporean must be a slack-jawed mouth-breathing drool-dripping inbred mutant."
I love Young PAP blog – Hear Ye Hear Ye:
"According to our dear Nicholoas, gays cannot procreate, so we should ban their existence. I laughed most loudly at this part. So, we should ban all impotent men along with women who have reached menopause. Since procreation is so important, why stop at gays?"
Of the YPAP blog – Winter Is Coming:
"The latest by Nicholas Lazarus is particularly shocking, notwithstanding his profession his argument seems to be no different than that often employed by those homophobes who have been rearing their heads in the public sphere. And this is the same Nicholas Lazarus who employed one of the worst arguments for the ministerial salary hikes."
I see dumb people – Sheep City:
“It goes at length to ridicule gays in the army as to sodomize their fellow comrade in-arms. It is plain rubbish. Who has heard anyone being charged for sodomy in the barracks? This is utter nonsense coming from those who would be leaders in Sheep City one day.”
“This guy is utterly hopeless ...”
Young PAP Nicholas Lazarus rails on gays – Minor Epiphany:
“C'mon Nicky boy, be proud of what you are! Years from now, you'll thank us cos your kids can read about what daddy is really like!”
Oh dear oh dear – The Daily Backtrack:
“I'm stunned, really. Most people dispense of these arguments in secondary school, where they are taught by their English teachers to make logical and fair arguments.”
Strike 2! – Song B:
“I’m mildly surprised that he, being a “litigation lawyer in private practice” as he so mentioned in his earlier post, can still have such logically flawed arguments, especially ones posted online for the world to see, as well as under the YPAP header. “Mildly” due to his previous post.”
My dear homophobic PAP – Geeky Rojak:
“Plus, about teachers having to deal with boy-boy relationship instead of boy-girl relationship.. Are you seriously dumb? What is the friggin’ difference? And why does it have to be boy-boy only from now on? You think homosexuality is a contagious disease that once you allow, everyone would catch it?”
Nicholas Lazarus and his homophobic views – Simply Me. Simple Jean:
“And I somehow want to agree with Han, Nicholas is quite a disgrace to the PAP, young or not.”
Homophobic Young PAP – L Bandit:
“This bit is extremely foul. People who cannot procreate and thus cannot produce offspring for our nation should be discriminated? Should we arrest all women who have sex after having their menopause? Should we arrest all men who have sex after having a vasectomy? Should we arrest all couples who use a condom during sex?”
Why can’t Nicholas Lazarus be more tolerant? – Cloudy Windz:
Will U STOP condemning homosexuals? Only WEAKLINGS do anyway!!! – Genie.sg:
“SO CUT THE CRAP AND MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!!!!! Just becos you are straight doesn’t make you superior or any one bit more “normal” or capable of doing our country proud! Silly.”
The homophobic future of our government? – CurlyWurlyBooBoo:
“I can’t believe such immaturity, naivety and blatant narrow-mindedness exists in the PAP! I thought they had higher standards than this.”
I am Singapore XXXI – Lazarus’ Singapore – Die Neue Welle:
“Seriously, however, this goes to show once again how dangerous it is for us Singaporeans to place ALL our trust in the PAP. Can you imagine having a minister like this person? Can you imagine this person on the forefront of Singaporean politics? Think about it.”
The alternative to an alternative (yes, definitely alternative!) - Words Of The Lionheart :
"There are days when I worry for this country. I have found another reason to. I suppose the writer of that post must have recently divorced his reason. It's the only explanation I can find for the sheer bigotry, the naked prejudice, the mind-numbing incredulity that screams from every paragraph. The entry pretends to be an argument against legalising homosexuality. Each point demands a reply, and I shall give it."
Nicholas Lazarus needs your help – HUNGonline:
“Mr Lazarus has to do battle daily against the forces of evil. As a lawyer, he has to fight off green-eyed monsters envious of his high pay…. When he changes into his alter ego, Lazarus the soldier, he has to deal with an even more frightening enemy: sinister homosexuals disguised as comrades, keen on sticking their M-16s where the sun don't shine…. We can only hope that Mr Lazarus quickly makes the step up to become part of the ruling party. He will make things right again, and we will all live happily ever after.”
Public Persona Suicide – Wynging It:
“I find his last name inherently ironic. I don't know why, I just do.”
