Happy Birthday to our Comrade and leader of Guyana, LFS Burnham

Image may contain: 1 person, eyeglasses

Linden Forbes Sampson Burnham (20 February 1923 – 6 August 1985) was a Guyanese political leader and leader of Guyana from 1964 until his death, as the first Prime Minister from 1964 to 1980 and as second President from 1980 to 1985. He is widely regarded as a strongman[1] who fought for nationalism and encouraged Guyanese to manufacture and export more local products.

Thank you for your service and leadership of Guyana, and may God grant your soul eternal peace in heaven. You are gone, but not forgotten. 

Original Post

This is a useless thread for some because Burnham is a blackman. I was educated under his leadership and history has taught me that he played a major role in Guyana's political history. Good or bad, he was Guyana's former leader, and I will pay respect to him as I see fit. People have balls to cuss a dead blackman, but they will never cuss a living blackman. This is why coolie will suffer more. They forget their history. They forget where they came from. They don't want people to know that a blackman shape their lives. They came abroad and sucking up America's wealth, but Burnham name will remember long after these scums kick the bucket. So much for coolie ignorance. 

Lots of people begin their political or religious endeavors with good intentions but soon succumb to the power that comes with being able to influence others thoughts and actions. Jim Jones started out with good intentions also but soon became a huge scumbag. Burnham is not the only one although the snake foolishly thinks that others think he is.

Burnham did too much damage to Guyana and its people to deserve any happy birthday wishes. At least from me. There are some people around who try to soften his image and make the man out to be redeemable. He was a dictator, full stop and his regime placed a lot of hardships on Guyanese. Chased a lot of us to foreign lands which I don't regret anyway. There is however a few things that puzzle me about Burnham the dictator and his relationship with the PPP. I probably already know the answers but I still ask these questions. Why did they join forces with him and offer critical support just a few years after he rigged the 1973 and 1968 elections? Why were they pursuing a National Front government with him which would have created a one party dictatorship? If they hated Burnham so much for the dictator he was, why did they embrace Castro who was a much worse dictator than Burnham?

Prince get invited to birthday party for Forbes.now he want to show off because no a we get invited.

The discipline that most of us receive from Burnham era, the lawlessness of democracy would never have made us what we are today. We should be grateful that we live to understand both sides of the coin in politics. If we were born in a democratic Guyana from day one, things would have been totally different. By remembering Burnham, I remember the good and simple life I once had in Guyana.

Because policywise, Burnham was fulfilling Jagan’s dreams. But where the rubber reaches the road, Burnham didn’t give a sh!t about Jagan or anyone else. Politicians are generally only for themselves.

The PNC terrorized black people who chose to support another party. Yesterday it was Walter Rodney.  Today they are harassing Edgehill and McCoy.  This is all consistent with Burnhamism

They must have learnt that from the PPP. Any Indians who do not tow the PPP line are maligned to the extreme. There are stories of non-PPP Indians being harassed from the 60's to the current crop like Ramjattan and Nagamootoo, and not excluding Django and Gilbakka.

I am not condoning the wrongs that Burnham did to the people of Guyana, but that's the way history was intended for our country. I don't think reflecting on the bad would make Guyana any better. Granger is set out to do worst and nobody gives a shit. Guyanese Indians just love to talk how bad Burnham treat them, but never cherish the good from his leadership.

Well, Granger replaces Burnham because of coolie stupidity. Again, coolie doesn't want to hear this.

Regardless of the errors these two men made we cannot allow Guyana to go down the path of totalitarian rule and economic chaos. This is the direction Guyana is heading. Amerindians have been the most marginalized and manipulated people and the time has come to demand their share of Guyana whether in the air, land or sea. Exxon should be given notice that a powerful Amerindian party has emerged that will take action to stop the madness going on with revenue from oil

Happy Birthday Comrade Leader...people like Nehru and kp miss yuh real bad...the moment they see yuh name, they go into frenzy

If Nehru was nearby, I would definitely celebrate with a drink.

Yeah would be a good time to have a dozen Beers each and then PISS on his Grave!!!!!!!!!!

On a serious note, most GNI members let their childishness get the better of them. If an Indian had done what Burnham did, they will go head over heels to protect him. What Burnham did, both blacks and Indians gain or suffer from it. The PNC was the oppressor of Indian due to their weakness. When you allowed yourself to be bullied, you will get bully. From an Indian point of view, I would say this is racist at best.

Boy Burnham helped you a lot if so you have a right to praise him.
