Photo of Halimah Yacob from Straits Times

Halimah Yacob has an Indian father, and she is Indian by heritage. In order to secure that lucrative S$1.54 million-a-year salary, she sold her Indian heritage. To date, she has made no mention of her heritage, sneakily hiding the fact that she does not want to be acknowledged as an Indian. Halimah Yacob’s silence on her heritage is a malicious attempt to be accepted as President.

The Indian community has been shamed by her actions, but the greater shame is felt by the Malay community, which is now dictated by religion. Indian Muslim is Malay, Pakistan Muslim is also Malay, according to the Singapore government. Any Muslim is now considered Malay, and this is a sad day for Malays. There is no better way to dilute their Malay identity than to call any non-Chinese Muslim a Malay, according to the government again that is. Malays are no long Malay because Halimah Yacob wants to get her million dollar contract.

Halimah Yacob has no respect for democracy. The naive woman believes in the stupidity of her voters, resigning the PAP membership today to become a “non-partisan independent member of the public”. Even for a cleaner, a notice period of 2 weeks is standard employment practice. Seriously, who else can be this shameless? How would someone who lie to the public without batting an eyelid, be qualified to be President?

In her announcement yesterday, Halimah Yacob sang about “an important role” and “passion to serve the people”. How further shameless can she get, given that everyone knows the Singapore President thus far has always been a useless puppet under PM Lee Hsien Loong? SR Nathan was insulted from his election day to his death as a dumb puppet. Tony Tan is equally useless, and both are still getting insulted even today.

By choosing to contest in the racist Presidential Election, it is hence proven that Halimah Yacob is a racist too. She has no respect for meritocracy, and she jolly well knows she can never be a President if not for her playing the race card. Her election will be a sad day for progress, equality and meritocracy in Singapore. Halimah Yacob will shame herself and the nation speaking in Singlish and having no decorum that of a President.
