Letter: Is real freedom of the press in St Vincent being destroyed by Marxist stealth?
Published on July 8, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

Dear Sir:

I personally believe that freedom of the press has been, or is being destroyed by this administration in several ways, I will give you just six.

1. One of the top regime members hires people to come on the internet and spread untrue stories, at the same time denying the truth that anyone should dare to write. There is a complete machinery in place that suppresses or attempts to suppress the truth. If it’s true, that is a scientific socialist attack on the freedom of press and process.

2. It is alleged that many of the letters to the press and internet media come from PM Gonsalves, in other people’s names. If this is true, is that not in itself a perversion of process and an attack on the press? Are they being supplied with false and people damaging information? Is that what is happening? If it is, that is a scientific socialist attack on the freedom of press and process.

3. Journalists have been treated so badly in interviews that they are frightened to ask pertinent questions. They are in many cases terrified to face the onslaught and the belittlement meted out to them publicly. They are made to feel and look unpatriotic. That is a scientific socialist attack on the freedom of press and process.

4. Newspapers are frightened to ask and frightened to print, lest they lose government advertising. That is a scientific socialist attack on the freedom of press and process.

5. It appears to me only one person speaks for everyone, everybody, every department, no one is allowed to give press interviews except the PM. Even those chosen few who are allowed to speak, I believe the PM writes their speeches for them. All those alleged actions are in themselves a reverse and perverse process that limits the information that the press can obtain. That is a scientific socialist attack on the freedom of press and process.

6. All media are frightened of being sued by a powerful advocate, PM Gonsalves. I believe he is a relentless and prolific litigant using his specialist skills and threats of proceedings to gag the media. If what I believe is true, isn't that a scientific socialist attack on the freedom of press and process?

7. Journalists are taken on trips abroad where they are supposedly carried to cover government events. When in fact they are being given the carrot and stick treatment. Be a good boy and we will take you on our 'jolly ups'. Fail to toe the line and you can sit in the cupboard, no information and no stories, even if they are false stories and information. That is a scientific socialist attack on the freedom of press and process.

The usual thing for these Marxist ALBA regimes is to have totalitarian control over all media. In the case of SVG, I suspect they currently feel there is no need to further control the press, because as far as the regime is concerned they are already under total control. And in some cases running frightened, very frightened.

Thank goodness we rejected the 'New Constitution', otherwise you can be pretty sure our press would have been nationalised and every word spoken or written, vetted and controlled. We may have well seen journalists languishing in prison by now. We have evidence of these processes and behaviours against the press by and from our ALBA partners, Venezuela and Cuba. Which I am sure is normal Marxist behaviour, but should be unacceptable by decent people living in what little is left of our democracy.

I am sure that true defenders of ‘Vincentian Democracy' like Marlon Mills and a small group of people willing to speak the truth without fear or favour, can add to what I have written, and I invite them to do so.

[Scientific socialism is the term used by Friedrich Engels to describe the social-political-economic theory first pioneered by Karl Marx. The purported reason why this socialism is "scientific socialism" (as opposed to "utopian socialism") is because its theories are held to an empirical standard, observations are essential to its development, and these can result in changes and/or falsification of elements of the theory. {communism} ]

Brothers and sisters who are believers in decency and honesty, at home and in the Diaspora, wake up and smell the sulphur.

PK I just love it when you talk dirty, remember how granny wash your mouth with that soap. Now you are a big man you can say what you like, even if its untrue. As long as what you write destroys the truth or injures the writer you can now do it without soap in the mout.

PK, is a true patriot of the comrade, he loves and adores him. So if you write anything that upsets him or the Marxist monster, they will bite your head off. PK was a supporter at the road block, a supporter at the rape rally, and is a 200% full supporter of one of the worlds worst liars.

By the way PK your old Scots friend 'Ben Doon', the steward from the cruise liner has phoned several times more, starting to call very early in the morning and very late at night, he is waking up aunty, you know all the time Aunty is awake she wants to eat. If you remember I asked you to ask the MP if he could send over some of Janki G’s wonderful curry and onion bargies, also some of the paella cooked by his Cuban chef at the big his official plantation house.

Isn’t it great PK that we can call the MP comrade instead of masser, I know it basically means the same thing, but sounds more friendly.

WHENEVER WE SEE THE NAME PETER BIGNOSE, WE KNOW WE ARE READING NONSENSE AND LIES.

The international community has continually reported their research, that St Vincent has one of the best records regarding freedom of the press.

It does not matter if the question relates to our region, or whether it concerns the international community.....ST VINCENT has, and has always had "freedom of the press."

....So BIG NOSE, just go and chill-out somewhere.

RKnight:

My dear brother PK, I do not understand why you write in two names and sometimes use the name Brian Alexander. I spoke to uncle about it, he told me when you use the Brian name it annoys Brian and at the same time hides your identity.

But I wonder if what the psychiatrist once told you that you are schizophrenic and have a split personality disorder has something to do with it.

Please let me know if you want me to call you BA or PK, see its easy for you because you are them both, its difficult for me because I can only see one of you.

PK, I know you are a true patriot of the comrade, you love and adores him. PK I respect your patriotism to the comrade, a supporter of his road block, a supporter of the rape rally, and a 200% full supporter of his lies.

I will help you bro PK, Peter Binose you must stop saying or writing things that upset my brother PK. It may be 100% true but it really upsets my brother. When he gets so upset he takes it out on his wife and children, beating them mercilessly.

PK By the way PK your old Scots friend 'Ben Doon', says he just wants to hear your voice again, you know, the steward from the cruise liner he has started to call very early in the morning and very late at night, he is waking up aunty, you know all the time Aunty is awake she wants to eat. If you remember I asked you to ask the MP if he could send over some of Janki G’s wonderful curry and onion bargies, also some of the paella cooked by his Cuban chef at the big his official plantation house.

Isn’t it great PK that we can now call the MP comrade instead of masser, I know it basically means the same thing to him, but sounds more friendly to us.

PK what I don’t understand is that you hated him growing up, now you would throw yourself under a dollar bus for him, but please don’t do that because none of them have insurance.

PKnight:

I think Peter Binose is upset with Kenton for disconnecting him, poor fellow. Seems like he exceeded his quota, he certainly posted with impunity.
