Letter: St Vincent’s political persecutor is a failed revolutionary


Dear Sir:

Some revolutionaries capable of getting their revolutions started, for a period have success, but all eventually fail. Some other so-called revolutionaries are often little more than wannabes.

Ralph Gonsalves is glaringly the latter. All his adult life he has tried to emulate Walter Rodney the Castro brothers, Maurice Bishop, Hugo Chavez and today’s Maduro. He also loves the historical communist figures of Karl Marx, Lenin, Stalin and a long list of others.

But to be a real revolutionary you must not just be a believer and follower of others, you have to have guts and courage and definitely lack cowardice. Some say Gonsalves was first contaminated and led into communism by his teacher at university in Jamaica, Walter Rodney, and having his mind crammed with left-wing manure of an ever-increasing stench.

If you analyze each of those names, they are all, each and every one of them, scum to the end degree.

Unfortunately, scum attracts scum, always has done and perhaps ever will. The problem is the Vincentian people are lumbered with this man and try as they may, cannot shake themselves free because of pre-election bribery and gross acts of election fraud by his followers and supporters.

Vincentians are a mixed bunch of the educated intelligent, the ignorant bordering stupid or very stupid, and the greedy who will sell their mothers into prostitution for a few crumbs from the table. The latter three categories are the supporters of Gonsalves which are a minority in Vincentian society. A minority becoming a majority each time an election takes place with the blatant rigging process undertaken by a few dirty people.

It becomes even more difficult when the previous NDP Prime Minister James Mitchell for reasons best known to him supports scum from time to time.

Has someone got a hold over him? Or is he just bitter and wants to ruin his old party and its current leaders out of spite? Whatever the problem, it really is becoming an embarrassment to decency, but joyously welcomed, by Gonsalves and all his rubbish supporters.

Kicking up a stink for the stinkers.

  1. Like a lot of politicians, Ralph Gonsalves preaches on the left and practices in the middle or right-of-middle.

    Like it or not, he is one of the most successful politicians the Caribbean has ever seen, a man who started campaigning with only a single stray dog attending his roadside speeches. He lost several elections before gaining a seat and eventually formed a coalition with the old Labour Party which soon propelled him into power.

    He has won four elections in a row fair and square, unless you consider the age old Caribbean practice of vote buying a form of electoral theft. It is no such thing: every party does it and those who accept gifts (call them “bribes” if you want) in exchange for their vote are people who would gain nothing else from whichever party were elected to office. On the orther hand, you don’t have to “bribe” hard-core party supporters, of which the Comrade has tens of thousands.

    And is this “election bribery” any different from voting for a party only because its policies on taxation or other issues will personally favour you even though this would leave the country as a whole worse off?

    And I know for a fact that the opposition New Democratic Party has always received votes for the same two reasons: up front gifts or post-election policies and privileges.

    As for “… gross acts of election fraud by his followers and supporters,” there has never been a shred of proof of this, legal or otherwise, as the High Court judge is bound to rule in his March 21 verdict in regard to the current 2015 election petitions case.

    Peter Binose, you are getting very tiresome in your losing war against Dr. Gonsalves. Get a life and write about something else for a change.

    • C-ben is an appeaser, an appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile—hoping it will eat him last.

      Sorry, darling but you really are an appeaser when it comes to Gonsalves, there is a distinct brown streak on your shirt tail.

  2. I agree with the content of this letter and approve the content, however, I disapprove of the lies submitted by David in support of a monster.

    All Vincentians are now aware of what has gone on, probably right from the start in 2001.

  3. In the psychology of human behavior, denialism is a person’s choice to deny reality, as a way to avoid a psychologically uncomfortable truth.
    Ref: Maslin, Janet (4 November 2009). “Michael Specter Fires Bullets of Data at Cozy Antiscience in ‘Denialism'”. New York Times.

    Denialism is an essentially irrational action that withholds the validation of a historical experience or event when a person refuses to accept an empirically verifiable reality.
    Ref: Maslin, Janet (4 November 2009). “Michael Specter Fires Bullets of Data at Cozy Antiscience in ‘Denialism'”. New York Times.

    In the sciences, denialism is the rejection of basic facts and concepts that are undisputed, well-supported parts of the scientific consensus on a subject, in favor of radical and controversial ideas.
    Ref: Scudellari, M. (March 2010). “State of denial”. Nat. Med. 16 (3): 248. doi:10.1038/nm0310-248a. PMID 20208495

    The forms of denialism present the common feature of the person rejecting overwhelming evidence and the generation of political controversy with attempts to deny the existence of a consensus.
    Ref: Diethelm & McKee 2009. Ref: McKee & Diethelm 2010.

    The motivations and causes of denialism include religion and self-interest (economic, political, financial) and defense mechanisms meant to protect the psyche of the denialist against mentally disturbing facts and ideas. Ref: Hambling 2009 Ref: Monbiot 2006.

    C-ben-David’s continual propaganda praise of Gonsalves is not actually believed by David. It is a method used as an Ad hominem action to attack Jolly Green because David believes he is Peter Binose. David has a hatred for someone who he believes is attacking him because of his [David’s] Ad nauseam articles that he writes.

    To make things worse C-ben-David is actually someone who has adopted a name of someone else to try and hide his true identity. Unfortunately, he masquerades as a university professor. Can anyone believe anything such a person writes or speaks when you consider he starts off as a living lie? Once a lie is told or enacted can you ever believe another word he utters? The danger as I see it because he is a living lie he is a cuckoo and is looking to lay many political untruths in the Vincentian nest, hoping they will hatch in his favor.

  4. What delusional twaddle is this that C. Ben-David is peddling here when putting before us the likes of this preposterous nonsense; “Like it or not, he (Ralph Gonsalves) is one of the most successful politicians the Caribbean has ever seen”. First C. Ben-David needs define for us what is being use as the measure for successful?

    When we here in St Vincent and the Grenadines have a vastly over taxed economy that is on its knees, needing worldwide subsidies and Grants to stay afloat, one can hardly term the same as successful political management.

    When we have in St Vincent and the Grenadines the near death of an 800 year old political system known as parliamentary democracy, handed to us by the British, one can hardly call the retreat from it to an extended family dictatorship, successful stewardship.

    There again C. Ben-David is not noted for clear blue sky thinking! My sentiments therefore must inevitably go with Dr Who.

  5. That letter was totally off and wall and sounds like a woman scorned (or I guess I should say man scorned). Either way it is so extreme that nobody could give it any serious consideration. The comrade is highly respected in St. Vincent and throughout the Caribbean. He is a true man of the people, a man of principle, a voice for the common man. May God bless him with long life.

    • Dearest Ernie, you should take some reading lessons, may I suggest you punch into your search engine ‘Ralph Gonsalves sexual assault’. Then try and read some of the results you get, there are 173,000 pages to choose from.

  6. Well my dear C.Ermle you write as one who’s a “glutton for punishment! One of the man’s deluded sycophant who has fallen for his self-publicity and ever fawning flattering’s.

    Or perhaps you are just one of those now employed in one of the non-jobs created in “the Vincentian socialist revolution” that has been making us poorer and poorer each passing day, as his extended family reforge our clunking chains with the smiles of con artists.

    I can almost hear you blissfully singing in concerted unity with your fellows, as you and they are stewarded back into neverending darkness and what our enslaved slave fathers and mothers so dreamed of escaping.

    Take note C.Ermle of the now unfolding Venezuelan disaster and remember this, that no one calling themselves comrade, have ever left that part of the world they inhabit a better place for either their victims or their sycophants!
