Singaporean Advocates The Killing Of Children
Calvin Cheng, a former Nominated Member of Singapore’s Parliament, recently commented on his Facebook that children of ISIS terrorists should be killed along with their parents “in case” the children grow up to take revenge.
Do you agree with his views? Personally, I believe that when you fight against terrorists, it is kill or be killed, but I feel strongly that we should not even entertain the idea of killing children just because they MIGHT grow up to take revenge.
There’s a saying out there. Something about not turning into the same kind of monsters you have to fight.
By the way, Calvin Cheng is also a member of the Media Literacy Council, some kind of advisory body set up by the Singapore goverment to oppose internet hate speech and shit like that.
Oh, despite Mr. Cheng’s public post about killing children, his boss at the Media Literacy Council did not think that was hate speech.
So, what do you think? Feel free to share your views.
