So I almost never post my opinion on news or politics as I’m not one to seek out controversial debates on such matters. Yesterday I was linked an article by Anthea Tan in which a fool I’d never heard of before was talking about why the government should stop funding the arts. I responded to him, but due to the fact that my opinion differed from his, he deleted all my comments as well as banned me from his page. The reason that I’m posting this in the first place is because I honestly want to know how someone like this could ever even have been nominated as an MP for our country.
Too bad for Calvin Cheng that the internet and technology is unforgiving and perhaps he has never heard of a screenshot. He claims that I have a right to state my opinion as long as it does not involve personal insults or attacks right after making a personal attack of his own, insulting both my parents and my upbringing, even after I had stopped making personal remarks about him and was asking him legitimate questions which he failed to answer.
Where did this guy even come from and does the Straits Times really have nothing more newsworthy to report than the rambling opinion of this idiot?
