It’s funny to watch liberals, they’re so clueless, they truly have no idea what’s really going on in the world. These are very “pie-in-the-sky” type people, who don’t have a solid grasp on reality. For example, they will look at a place like Singapore with awe…It’s so clean, it’s so safe, and even their airport is pristine and beautiful – magical even, and they don’t know why we can’t have nice things like that… Meanwhile, look at any Democrat-run city and you’ll find your answer: Mobs, homeless people, crooks, and druggies run the show and tear everything down, and that’s what the left not only supports, but encourages.
Here’s a tweet from a “pie-in-the-sky” liberal about the Singapore airport:

And here’s conservative blogger Matt Walsh’s harsh but true response:
Singapore is able to have nice things in part because they execute drug dealers by hanging and arrest even petty vandals and thieves and beat them with a cane until they bleed. We don’t have nice things because we aren’t willing to do what is required to maintain them.
There are some accusing me of advocating similar laws in this country and I just want to clarify that yes absolutely I want those laws in this country
I also loved this response from independent journalist, Mike Cernovich:
Libs post Singapore like that with captions “WHY CANT WE HAVE THAT HERE?” Yes indeed. Take a walk around San Francisco, where the left has total power, and then get back to us on that very difficult question
And Matt and Mike are right, the laws in Singapore are crazy strict:
Go Abroad reported that Singapore is known for its impeccable cleanliness and low crime rate. The country has such a strong reputation for being safe that the authorities had to put out a warning stating that “low crime does not mean no crime,” reminding people to stay vigilant. But, as with most good things, the high regard the country gets for its cleanliness and safety comes with a price. Singapore is sometimes called “The Fine City,” but this title has a double meaning that you don’t want to be on the wrong end of. The label refers to the immaculate, or fine, state that Singapore is in, but also for the many different fines the country imposes.
Unfortunately, it takes a little more than common sense to know what is right and wrong while visiting or studying in Singapore. There are acts considered harmless in your home country that are illegal in Singapore. But there is no need to fear or be deterred from studying abroad in this unique and beautiful place. It is easy to become aware of these laws and customs.
The Importance Of Discipline:
Singaporeans place a lot of importance on discipline, and corporal punishment is widely accepted. Caning is not only used to punish criminals but also as a disciplinary measure in schools, the military, and in the domestic scene. Do not be surprised to find canes sold in grocery stores. They usually cost around 50 Singapore cents and are made of thin rattan with a plastic hook at the end to serve as the handle. They are made for the sole purpose of parental caning. Make sure you respect the local culture and adhere to their strict standards of proper behavior.
Here’s just a couple of the “rules” that Singapore enforces:
Chewing gum is banned in Singapore so leave it at home when packing your bags. Importation of chewing gums into the country, even if it is not for trading, is illegal. The current set of regulations does not have provisions for carrying gum for personal use. Improper disposal of gum and carrying large quantities of the banned product will cost a hefty fine of up to $1000 for first time offenders.
A proposal on the ban of chewing gums has long been in place, stemming from maintenance problems in high-rise housing flats (gum stuck inside keyholes, in mailboxes, and on elevator buttons). Chewed wads left on seats of public buses, pavement in public areas, stairways, and floors were also considered serious problems. Regarded as a drastic measure, the initial ban was not successful. The tide turned when the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) began its operations. The $5 billion project was the biggest public project implemented in the country, bringing high expectations with it. When vandals started sticking gum on the door sensors of the MRT trains it was the last straw, especially when it started causing malfunctions and disruption of services. The chewing gum ban earned its merit and was finally enacted.
It is important to note that the Singaporean authority does not distinguish between drugs taken back home before you entered the country, and those taken within their borders. The Singapore police is authorized to run a random drug test on both locals and visiting foreigners. Make sure you are cleared of any substance before entering the country, or even better, never consume!
Liberals who love Singapore and call it an oasis, would destroy that city if they actually lived there.
Their s0-called social justice and activism are a bleak and demonic darkness that consumes every bit of light in the name of “love and inclusion.”
It’s all a lie.
