In this day and age, online spats are commonplace and just about unavoidable. Recently, a Polish blogger commented on the state of Singapore’s political scene and took on opposition member Brad Bowyer in a rather public argument.

On May 27, former People’s Voice Party (PVP) member Bowyer, had taken to social media with a post titled, “NO TO ONLINE HOOLIGANS AND FOREIGN INFLUENCE”. His lengthy post covered conversations he had had with YouTuber Nas Daily, and he had added that he was “now of the belief that a combination of online anonymity and the physical separation from the target are at the root of (online hooliganism)”.

Bowyer cited Polish blogger Michael Petraeus, also known online as “Critical Spectator” for “causing trouble online”. Bowyer wrote that Petraeus had been seen “attacking alternative politicians, but was also busy slamming Malaysia, Supporting Singapore and stirring the fire during the tensions last November and December”.

Not one to go quietly, Critical Spectator responded to Bowyer’s comments in yet another lengthy social media post.

He explained on commenting on local politics and opined, “However, since I am not a citizen and do not vote in the elections I have refrained from writing anything about various opposition politicians, regardless of my personal disgust for the populist, manipulative and divisive content they release”.

In his post, he also alleged, “That said, I have commented privately on their posts, what quickly got me banned on pages of former political (no)buddies Lim Tean and Brad Bowyer. Turns out they like to talk about freedom of speech as long as this speech does not reveal their corrupt nature (and hypocrisy)”.

Critical Spectator’s post received a huge response from netizens who weighed in, not only on the matter at hand, but on opposition politicians and the issue of a foreigner commenting on governance. /TISG
