In St Vincent it is a fact that you are your brother’s keeper, you are responsible for what your brother does, your wife, your sister, your mother and father, your children. If they speak against this ALBA-based ULP Marxist regime, you as the wealthiest and head of the family are responsible for them all. If they cannot reach a member of your family to punish, they will go to great lengths to destroy you; in fact, they will do that anyway.
Can you believe the hatred, the spite, the malice, the venom and sheer wickedness of this nasty regime’s leadership?
Dr Ralph Gonsalves, prime minister of St Vincent and the Grenadines, was to deliver the keynote address at a one-day conference in Chicago on April 19 at Chicago State University, being held in the wake of 14 Caribbean nations demanding reparations and an apology from European countries for the trans-Atlantic slave trade.
Letters of complaint were sent to newspapers and the online media and the reparations committee. Objections to Gonsalves being the key speaker at the conference were made and accepted. The writers said he was not a fit person to represent black people.
He was cancelled, dumped by the committee, embarrassed and, perhaps feeling disgraced and disrespected, he suddenly got a bad foot, which perhaps he used as an excuse to go abroad, maybe to get out of the way whilst Keith Howard is hung out to dry.
It was Doug Howard, Keith Howard’s brother, a political activist, who lives in the US, along with a number of other people in the Diaspora, who wrote to CARICOM, the media, and the reparations committee, laying out reasons why Gonsalves should not be the main speaker. It’s difficult for ULP activists to get back at the people who managed to get Gonsalves cancelled, so Keith Howard had to suffice.
In St Vincent, something happened last week to Keith Howard of Howard Marine, brother of Doug Howard. Keith Howard is one of St Vincent's most respected businessmen, director and investor in several successful SVG companies. He is the SVG agent for a number of boat engine manufacturers. As such, for the last 17 years he has been importing boat engines for fisherfolk. They are supplied by concession without import duty, tax and VAT. Howard has imported engines for them during all those years. Last week when he went to collect engines from the customs, he was told that he now had to pay duty, tax and VAT on the engines. No real explanation, just offhand nastiness.
There will be a negative impact on the fishermen, now paying $2,000 more for their boat engines, which will be passed on to the consumer through the price of fish, which will cut the sales of fish and could well affect employment of people in SVG.
Later, his boatyard was raided by the army-uniformed police force, searching his boatyard without a warrant. Big guns, little guns wielded by those parts of the force who are rapidly being identified by Vincentian citizenry as politically controlled thugs.
Doesn't this have the same smell, the same stink as what happened to Bigger Biggs, put out of business because he supported the opposition party? His business destroyed by the same hatred, the spite, the malice, the venom and sheer wickedness. 60 - 70 people thrown out of work and whole families destroyed. Remember the blocks he made with modern machinery, the best in the Caribbean. There was input also into this by the police. A deliberate action to damage, if not destroy a private business with the same hatred, the spite, the malice, the venom and sheer wickedness. Why? Because they can; they are ALBA Marxists, and businessmen must be controlled, they must not support the opposition.
Nice Radio, raided by the police who found nothing amiss, another disgraceful use of the police as political battering rams. An attempt to damage, if not destroy a private business with the same hatred, the spite, the malice, the venom and sheer wickedness. Why? Because they can; they are ALBA Marxists and the news and media must be controlled.
Theft of the land at Argyle from the landowners, who after many years still haven't been paid. Families treated with the same hatred, spite, malice, venom and sheer wickedness. Why? Because they can; they are ALBA Marxist. The landowners are petit bourgeoisie and deserve to be punished.
Theft by the Marxist-led government of the depot and yard owned by Marcus De Freitus in Kingstown, said to be for redevelopment, standing idle now for numerous years. Even after orders from the High Court to pay him, they refuse to pay him. His business destroyed by the same hatred, spite, malice, venom and sheer wickedness. Why? Because they could; they are ALBA Marxists. Marcus is a bourgeoisie relative who offended the leader.
Offices at the NDP supporting supermarket raided, dozens of political army-uniformed police shut down half of Kingstown, searching for evidence of money laundering, none found but plenty of blight damage inflicted on individuals who they falsely named. Why? Because they can; these were regarded as people who supported the opposition party and deserved hatred, spite, malice, venom and sheer wickedness to be inflicted upon them. Why? Because they could; they are ALBA Marxists. These were people who support the opposition who needed teaching a lesson, and a lesson they were taught.
I hear, but I am not sure if it’s true that the ULP will be holding classes in hatred, spite, malice, venomous behaviour and sheer wickedness if re-elected; they say it’s such fun. Why? Because they can; they are ALBA Marxists.
