Love it, hate it, don’t know what to think? Reactions to the Hong Lim Heckling from the opposition camp have been mixed, but one way or another, everyone seems to be falling nicely into three categories.
1. Conspiracy theorist. Somehow they are the victim. They’re always the victim/hero. These guys are in turn supported by some folks with Guy Fawkes masks in their profile pictures who will argue about technicalities like how it wasn’t “heckling”, but just a damn blardy rude interruption, or else they will ad hominem people who condemn the act and label them all as PAP IBs. Damn, suddenly so many people become PAP IBs. If PAP was capable of plotting something so smooth and ingenuous, I swear I will join them right away.
Done nothing wrong
It’s a PAP trap/plot
Conspiracy by YMCA, NParks, Police, MSM, and the parents of the disabled kids.
Han Hui Hui
Kenneth Jeyaretnam (EDIT: KJ has now been upgraded – or is it downgraded – to the level of conspiracy theorist.)
2. Silence is golden. Here stand most of the people who were vocally supportive of Roy and Han… until now. Unable to break ties with their most visible political allies but at the same time unable to jump onto the loony train and screw their credibility. Lie low and you may yet survive the shitstorm.
Nothing at all, maybe share some articles written by other people to show that I’m still an ally, but don’t say anything because this shit is bad.

Chee Soon Juan
The Ice Cream Party leadership
3. The “reasonable” opposition. These guys are happy to distance themselves from the increasingly-alarming CPF gang. Full retard is just too much. Never go full retard.
The protesters’ actions were uncalled for and inexcusable
Stop calling me a PAP IB
