Singaporean blog riles Filipinos

A Singaporean blogger who posted an anti-Filipino "guide" that suggested ways to displease Filipinos living in Singapore has riled readers.

The anonymous blogger behind Blood Stained Singapore said "Filipinos have long overstayed their welcome, and they must be advised in no less clearer terms that we are growing intolerant of their presence. Then again, let’s do this through largely ‘peaceful’, non criminal means,” the blog reads.

The blogger said Filipino waiters and customer service officers must be rejected. He said Singaporeans must request for the service of his fellow countrymen.

“If the idiot continues rambling on, tell him/her with a smile: Your English sucks, capisce?... find me someone else pronto’,” the blogger advised.

The blogger also suggested to give a “little nudge” to Filipino commuters that get rowdy but "make it look accidental".

“We understand sometimes they just don’t get it, so a little more force must be employed,” he added.

The Blood Stained Singapore blogger said Singaporeans should eat at Filipino restaurants and make a mess by spitting the food out in their plate.

If Filipinos figure in an accident, the blogger asked Singaporeans not to help but take photos and post them on social media with a caption: “Hopefully another Pinoy has breathed his last on the little red dot. RIP. NOT.”

Lastly, he said Singaporeans should pray for a flood of biblical proportions to descend upon Orchard Road which is frequented by Filipinos especially on weekends.

The anonymous blogger believes he is not violating any law by raising his points that are very critical of Filipinos. But Marc Titus Cebreros, chief of the Human Rights Information and Communication Division, contradicted this and said Singapore's Sedition Act punishes offline and online remarks that tend to incite distrust and enmity between the races with a jail term of three years and a hefty fine.

Cebreros said Singaporean authorities should penalize the blogger concerned.

“At the very least, what he said was rather foolish but the fact that it is stirring negative reactions from Filipinos and other minorities in Singapore should convince the authorities to push for tough legal actions,” he added.

“It is a black and white case of hate speech and hate mongering that deserves to be condemned and penalized,” he added.

The sensationalist post has given the blogger good traffic to his site after the article has been viewed 529,301 times and shared in several social media platforms.
