dont forget: singapore has no defined level of poverty, so the wealth gap in their country is massive and tons of senior citizens still work to scrape by despite the country's GDP and wealth

Well think of it this way: Singapore started off being very strict and gives civil liberties sparingly. It is now starting to "dish out" civil liberties. US on the other hand, started off being all about freedom and human rights and liberal. It is now starting to rethink its position about it. Let me ask you, which is easier - to take away civil liberties or give them out?

Well, you have to give Americans one thing: Australians would never accept an American comedian making fun of them and basically hating them constantly. Americans make shows out of people who hate them.

as a singaporean, I gotta say that I agree with the students that the restrictions are necessary, but I also think that it needs to be toned down a bit. since the laws were put in place when singapore was still developing to maintain order, we've developed so much more now and it's about time some freedom was given to us. oh and plus we don't have free healthcare, just major government subsidies (that have their own issues as well)

Somehow I can' t force myself to believe anything Jeffries says after that framing of Avi Yemeni. Even if it's the truth it is so strange to watch him talking about freedom of speech. So sad, a comedian should be the canary in the coal mine, not the freaking gas. The way he lines out that free health care and tax cuts are stuff the government gives out so people are quite is so much bs that it hurts. Taxes are money the government takes from you, not taking your money is not a present. Without looking it up pretty sure that health care is not for free in singapore and in some way or another people are definatly paying for it.

First of all, there is a fair amount of freedom of speech in Singapore... The restrictions are mainly on hate speech, defamation as well as something known as contempt of court i.e. accusing the judicial system of being corrupt or bias...
Secondly, there actually is a fairly big comedy scene in Singapore... If you ever come down, check it out..
Lastly, Shout out to my man, Sam... He's a fantastic guy and an excellent comedian, one of the most hard working in all of Singapore. He's incredibly funny and refreshingly candid. I'd watch the hell out of his Netflix special if he ever had one..

There's no free healthcare in Singapore, it's based on free market. Just like the US health system but well done instead of being fucked up. Singapore health is currently one of the, if not the, best health system in the world. Getting healthcare is cheap due to high supply in Singapore

This looks a lot like the interview Jim did with Avi Yameni. You know, the one where Jim cut and pasted the interview to seem exactly opposite to the truth. No doubt Jim would have been up to those same tricks here when he was interviewing. He even has the same old smelly looking black golf shirt on. Hahaha....Jim you will always be a scumball! I wonder how many muslim jokes you told off camera??

As restrictive as making sure Avi Yemeni couldn't get into the United States? That's pretty restrictive, Jim. Got any more hot takes on Muslim babies being eaten by Dingos? Perhaps you'd like to show us the picture of Mohammed that you drew. You know, the one where you say Mohammed looks like a wobbly ghost.

It should be noted that Singapore is a really small country, so it's obviously pretty easy for them to run everything really well. Also, the Singaporeans are like 60 percent of the population. Migrant workers aren't exactly walking on sunshine in Singapore. Of course if you're part of the few million citizens living in a small, rich country you won't have many complaints.

I like Jim. Jim hates muslims and jews, which he happily said in a hidden footage.
I dislike that Jim decided to put his face down and ass up to please the snowflakes of the U.S though.

But you know, good on you Jim.
You pretend to care about those sensitive American feelings, have them pay you, and still run around hating them for being dumb Christians.

Quite a smart fella, actually.

Correction: We (Singapore) do not have free healthcare. And we did not invent the law that criminalises homosexuality. It was an archaic law from our past as a British colony that remained in the books way after Britain had repealed it.

But let's face it, Americans think Europe is a country. There is no way they can mention 52 other countries.
Let's lower the bar. America scores 27th in education. Try to guess the 26 countries that are smarter. Without using Google.

@John Adams Jim Jeffries is a comedian, not a journalist. That's the first mistake you made. The second is that *every* tv show gets edited that way. Answers, reactions, applause, they all get mixed and matched to create, what they believe, to be the best show possible. That's just how video editing for entertainment purposes works. The fact that you *only* noticed this with a Jim Jeffries show tells me: A that you're not very perceptive and B: That you've clearly got an agenda against Jim. My guess is that he either put your religion to shame, or some kind of nasty politician that you support. Maybe you should find a safe space.

Helen Pauls - 21 day ago
John Adams Just watched the Avi Yemini video I think you are referring to. Didn’t see any crafty editing, just Jim Jeffries, as usual insulting a religion. I do believe the network edited it and would have refused to show it. Remember most content shown on USA TV is childproofed and censored for the sensitive American public. Jim decries all religions, with the same derogatory comments to whichever sky fairy the followers believe. That’s part of his comedy. He is a COMEDIAN, not a politician changing policies, starting wars, bombing countries or places within cities. Personally, I think you are just trying to garner views, likes, division and promote the extreme right nut jobs by posting the same comment. Be a good human.

these guys aren't really a representative of Singapore and Singaporeans. There is 4 major race the Chinese being the majority mostly because the malays (second) run to Malaysia when Singapore separated because of politics. Some of the rules like LGBT are because of the sensitivity of religions. Not because of politics. Religions play a major part in ASEAN countries like Buddhism and Christianity. It's also a culture that is frown upon. Most law in sg is because there is one side of the people that like to do stupid things and the other side that likes to complain and hence the govt had to do something. Like banning gums. I remembered the time when everyone was chewing and then stick it all over the place like inside a lift etc. I used to hate that. After the ban, there aren't any more of that shit happening. But then, Singaporean will go to other countries to eat gums and then spew it all over that country. :p
