Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Dr. Ralph E. Gonsalves, is heading for Cuba, home of his ideologist views of planet earth painted red. His love for the Cuban Revolution is important to him, but means nothing to most Vincentians, because they do not share the Marxist ideology of Gonsalves.
The celebration has been held on July 26 every year, since 1953, when the rebels led by the Castro brothers unsuccessfully attacked the Moncada Barracks in Santiago — a date that the Cubans recognise as the beginning of the glorious Revolution.
Seeing as we Vincentians are not communists and we are not Marxist’s nor Marxist-Leninists, the majority of us find the communist overthrow of a country by revolution an aberration. We also consider an aberration subsequent iron fist ruling of that country by so called Marxist dictators, by the way of the Castro brothers, Fidel and Raul, or whatever their extended real time names are.
Who is paying the bill for Gonsalves, perhaps his family and an entourage, to travel and lodge? Who will pay? I hope it’s not the State of SVG. We should not be paying for his personal beliefs, and ideological views. Let him pay for himself and his group — perhaps even put it to the people, see what they say about it.
If we analyse what the Cubans have brought to us, it’s been a drain on our country and nothing but financial distress to the people. The Cubans love to clothe themselves as do-gooders, bringing eye-surgery and eye repair that has long been available from the superior American doctors. But again, because of the ideology involved, the inferior Cuban route was adopted.
In fact, most of the communist scum from the Caribbean and elsewhere will attend the celebrations on July 26.
Cuba, and Gonsalves love for their communist system, and his unwavering ideology that joins him at the hip with the Cuban Communist Party, has been the nail in the coffin for SVG, bringing us closer to bankruptcy than the country has ever been since or prior to independence.
For the sake of Gonsalves’ ideology, we have been employing Cubans at the airport, when Vincentians could do any job as well or better than them. This action has taken money from the Vincentian people, stopped a circulation of money in St. Vincent’s shops and stores and brought our banking system to its knees. Because of the shortage of work, Vincentians have been unable to pay their mortgages, causing a drain on our financial institutions.
With his battle cry “I am here to finish the work of Maurice Bishop” (Bishop is the dead Cuban backed Grenadian Marxist revolutionary), Gonsalves has tried to lead SVG into the mental and physical compound of communist rule by joining us with ALBA. ALBA is an association of all the Caribbean and South American Marxist orientated leaders, a group of men that any decent citizen of the world would reject.
Remember the Castro’s came to power by murdering thousands of Cubans, a slaughter of all who apposed them. They even slaughtered those who may appose them at some time in the future. By Gonsalves going to Cuba for these celebrations, he is condoning the mass murder and ensuing Marxist filth that the Cuban people have had to endure for 60 years.
The Castros are among the world’s most wealthy men. The Cuban people are among the world’s poorest.
Cuba has for years tried to install communist rule all over the Caribbean and South America and parts of Africa. They have given aid to terrorists, which call themselves freedom fighters, including financial aid and military aid in training and weapons.
Now the ALBA has its own military school in Bolivia where the members’ citizens are being trained in urban warfare and how to overthrow their legitimate governments. Many young students in target countries had their minds, addled and corrupted, even stolen, by the Cuban cancer of communism that they have tried to spread. Some of the leaders of the ALBA countries are in fact the product of such Cuban indoctrination, induction and minds addled with ultra socialist filth.
Now they have been caught shipping missile systems to North Korea, a state that is a threat to the whole world. Cuba shipped a series of weapons to North Korea hidden under a shipload of sacks of brown sugar. They were caught by the vigilant eye of the Panamanians when a North Korean ship tried to pass through the Panama canal with this undeclared shipment.
Mr. Gonsalves will perhaps give us his opinion on such an act. Should we just punish North Korea and Cuba, or should we also punish ALBA and its members? Going to the celebration on July 26 encourages and gives the Cubans comfort to act in this way.
And then ALBA members and the non-aligned countries such as Iran and Venezuela, try and get the United States to lift its embargo against Cuba, when it’s very obvious by this missile matter that they need more and a wider spread of banned items, perhaps even among ALBA members. It’s very obvious that like most rogue states, Cuba cannot be trusted one inch.
How much illegal stuff will pass through our new airport when it is open? What a nice refuelling location in the scheme of things.
SO MR GONSALVES, MAN WHO LOVES TO BE CALLED THE COMRADE, PLEASE PAY FOR YOU AND YOUR GROUP YOURSELF. SVG CAN ILL AFFORD YOUR IDEOLOGY.
