It has never been lower than this in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. To rid the country of the Dr. Ralph Gonsalves led ULP administration, all you simply have to do is destroy your neighbours and friends. Don’t you worry, you will be paid handsomely if your video is humiliating and vindictive enough. In fact, win first prize and you can sleep better at nights for the lifechanging sum of $1500.
It continues to be the modus operandi of NDP supporters particularly in the diaspora to wish evil on anyone who does not march to their beating drum. For them, it is mind boggling that despite the tight fiscal economic space, families across St. Vincent and the Grenadines are behaving ‘irrationally’ by not overwhelming supporting a potential NDP administration.
What’s the solution? An advertisement by the so-called Movement reads:
“Narrate and produce a video of the distribution of building materials, lumber, galvanise, cement etc., but not limited to building materials”.
You will need to upload the video to Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Instagram and ensure it goes viral. In effect, the more embarrassing the better. The more demeaning equals to more likes which increases your chance of winning the prizes on offer. If you place 2nd then $1000 is yours.
So what’s next? Let’s suppose NDP wins the government? How do you take back this perpetual vortex of divisiveness, malice, envy, and jealousy? The New Democratic Party (NDP) cannot control persons acting vicariously in its name. However, it cannot seek to profit by turning a blind eye to the mounting evidence of evil done in its name and for its benefit. Silence in this case is consent!
I have written before, only a spirited but uplifting campaign by the NDP will be able to capture the hearts and minds of the Vincentian public in a sufficient way to win government. The total prize money of $3000 will be better spent helping these same poor people you seek to embarrass. They too have children, church sisters and brothers, neighbours, cousins and nen-nens who will be caught up in this ambush of decency.
There is a legal maxim which says, “he who comes to equity must come with clean hands”. Galations Chapter 5 verse 22-23 says:
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness self-control; against such things there is no law”.
It seems this tsunamic mentality is still pervasive amongst a certain sect of people that does more harm than good. I do not contest that their hearts are not in the right place, it is their heads that seems to be warped with a destructive ‘mash up and buy back mentality’.
‘Jump up masqueraders, wuk up stinka than dat, tear down and build back, mash up and buy back’.
