Online or off, if it fans hatred, Govt will act
By Aaron Low
IT DOES not matter whether inflammatory racist remarks are made online or offline - it is still against the law to stir up distrust and enmity between the races.
And the Government will act against anyone who threatens racial and religious harmony, said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Saturday.
Race, language and religion remain sensitive issues in Singapore, and a younger generation must grow up learning the 'eternal truths' about Singapore's multiracial and multi-religious society, he said.
'Whether you do it on the Internet, whether you do it in the newspapers, whether you go and say it in public or even in the Speakers' Corner, it doesn't matter where you say it; this is a message which is not acceptable,' said Mr Lee.

When PM Lee isn't busy trying to score political points with the masses, he actually sounds a lot like Mr Wang. Scary.
"Even I have changed my name. Or haven't you noticed?"
