Granger = Burnham

Ok Folks,

Burnham was a total failure and destroyed Guyana.

Granger failed in less that two years and is now exhibiting all of Burnham's traits and racist attitude.

They both have a lot in common where the racism and dictatorship traits stand out.

Who is better ? Burnham or Granger ?

You be the judge.

Bhai, nah meck meh get vex. All of this that you are preaching was predicted by most of us to be any surprise of Granger's unfolding ideology. People like you, your friend Gilbakka,  Mitwah, etc, were fooled to believe dictatorship will not return to Guyana. 

Moses and Ramjattan sold them a big monkey without a cage.

I do not disagree with you once again.

A June 27, 1974 US diplomatic cable on the Guyana National Service (GNS) gave an assessment of now President David Granger and the man who became the first head of the organisation, Norman McLean.

The cable from the US Embassy here to the State Department and other American missions said that McLean was a career policeman who had experienced “ups and downs” while serving with the force. At the time of his appointment McLean was Assistant Commissioner of Police and he would later go on to become Chief of Staff of the Guyana Defence Force after the national service stint.

The cable said that McLean was generally considered to be a competent policeman and good administrator.

“While McLean is loyal to Prime Minister Forbes Burnham and (the) ruling People’s National Congress (PNC), his appointment and apparent removal of (Elvin) McDavid and Granger may represent (a) degree of de-politicization of national service”, the cable said. It noted that McDavid and then GDF Major Granger had played leading roles in organizing the beginning of the National Service. The cable added that McDavid was reportedly to remain at the National Service Secretariat for several weeks to ensure a smooth transition while Granger was to return to his post at the GDF.

The cable also said that McDavid and Granger “have reputations as ideologues and anti-East Indian racists. McLean, also Afro-Guyanese, is less well known, less identified with PNC, and less controversial. He seems favourably disposed towards (the) U.S.”

The cable also noted that the appointments of McLean and Assistant Director Major Desmond Roberts came at a time when final preparations were being made for the initial intake of volunteers at the GNS.

 

Proof:

"The cable also said that McDavid and Granger “have reputations as ideologues and anti-East Indian racists. McLean, also Afro-Guyanese, is less well known, less identified with PNC, and less controversial. He seems favourably disposed towards (the) U.S.”

 

 

Intellectual dishonesty  - a failure to apply standards of rational evaluation that one is aware of, usually in a self-serving fashion.

Intellectual dishonesty by Granger.

In 2003, in Chile, Mr. Granger presented a paper entitled “Civil Violence, Domestic Terrorism and Internal Security in Guyana, 1953 – 2003”, wherein he referred to the sinking of MV Sun Chapman when 40 African Guyanese were killed as “the most alarming slaughter of the ‘disturbances’ between the period 1953 – 2004.

Yet, nowhere in this work were the beatings, rape and murder of hundreds of innocent Indian Guyanese residing in Wismar ever mentioned. Indians were forced out of their own homes, which were then permanently occupied by the perpetrators; yet this was not considered in Granger’s writing of the history of civil violence in Guyana.

If this is not blatant racism and intellectual dishonesty on the part of Mr. Granger then what is? Was Mr. Granger trying to portray an image that the Wismar massacre never occurred, or should not be considered civil violence?

Thank you for reminding us:
