Where are Dawn Cush, Karen Abrams and Melissa Ifill?

Kaieteur News – It is extremely disturbing the type of attitudes the five-month election rigging produced. One trait that was ubiquitous was the racial preference that was deeply hidden and came onto the surface masquerading under countless tags.
Lincoln Lewis from beginning to end argued for an APNU+AFC victory flipping from one interpretation to the other, some of which contradicted each other. Briefly, Lewis urged that Claudette Singh be left to do her job and she will do a professional job. He urged faith in the courts’ decisions. When Singh did decide to do the right thing and when the courts did the legal thing, Lewis eventually called on President Granger to investigate Singh and GECOM for improprieties.
Lewis never revealed his true self – as a Black Guyanese, he saw the election as a contest between Indians and Africans and he accepted that if rigging will keep the black president in power then so be it. Guyanese knew the reason why Lewis behaved the way he did. What they do not know is why he chose to not reveal his inner thoughts publicly. What was he afraid of?
The same conclusion applies to Eusi Kwayana. At times, Kwayana descended to a comical level, I never believed he ever would. I felt sadness in me about this aspect of Kwayana’s politics. It was comical in that he kept asserting that he was not in possession of the facts to conclude the election was being rigged and in the very same breath, he was regurgitating facts about the election that suited his purpose. Why he didn’t have the courage at his age to say, “I want to see the APNU+AFC retain power.”
Dr. David Hinds operated in identical fashion. Here is an example of the mystery that connects Lewis, Kwayana and Dr. Hinds. Hinds posited that the election result was not of importance given the zero sum battle between Indians and Africans. He asserted that Guyanese get down to the crucial issues and forget about the election result. Then Dr. Hinds became serpentine. He said that if there has to be a result, then declare it for the APNU. What was his reason? He explained that a PPP government would be less independent in Guyana’s foreign policy. It was an asinine excuse for masking his true colours. What was the essence of his instinct – declare the result for APNU because it is a Black government and I am a Black man. But like Lewis, and Kwayana, Dr. Hinds refused to say it publicly.
Then there were these three women who hid their true feelings under a feminist tag which in the process was a vulgarization of feminism. It was an ugly and pernicious distortion of what feminism stands for. The women are Karen Abrams of Stem-Guyana; Dr. Melissa Ifill, currently UG Vice –Chancellor; and Director of the Consumer Affairs Commission, Dawn Holder-Cush (she was fired on Thursday).
In April, during the time the GECOM chairperson, Claudette Singh, was actively involved in GECOM’s unprofessional conduct, the three women condemned in the Chronicle, the criticism by many in the society levelled at the unprofessional descent of Singh. These women gave plaudits to Singh which she did not deserve. Dr. Ifill noted that she was proud of Singh for taking the right decisions in GECOM (which were both illegal and improper). Dr. Ifill labelled the criticism against Singh as misogynistic. Holder-Cush noted that Singh was a brilliant woman with class and integrity. Abrams extolled the competence of Singh (see my column of May 10, 2020 in which I offered a pungent rebuttal of the crass, asinine defence of Singh from these three so-called feminists).
These three so-called feminists have gone silent since GECOM commissioner, Desmond Trotman, and Opposition Leader, Joe Harmon, last week levelled accusations of criminal misconduct by Singh that are openly libelous. Trotman accused her of being engaged in the persecution of GECOM staffers who have been charged for election rigging. He accused her of giving the police documents. Harmon has called on her to resign.
Now why have Holder-Cush, Dr. Ifill, and the stem lady, Abrams, stemmed their voices in the face of the onslaught on Singh by Trotman and Harmon? Race comes into play in everything in this country. You see in April, the persons Holder-Cush, Dr. Ifill and the stem lady were replying specifically to were Indian people who were condemning Singh. Singh is generally regarded among Afro-Guyanese as being Black.
Are we going to see the protection of Singh and Guyanese women in general from the trio? No, because Singh allowed an Indian government to come to power and her latest attackers are from African party leaders. The trio would never publicly justify their silence, which is based on the race instinct.

Volda Lawrence said it right.  The PNC is a black Party and She is a black woman. She would only hire black people. Freddie Kissoon is a son of Guyana. Good job.   He told it as it is.

Good thing the PPP won.  Guyana is great and Guyana is beautiful.

Freddie is 100% correct here. These people may not say who they are but their actions shouts loudly that they are indeed racists. Same with Granger. He may have pretended to be a man of honor but his actions shouts loudly that he is a sanctimonious gangster. One can even go back to the gun threatening manner in how he became the APNU leader in 2011 for confirmation of his diabolical nature. These people will never be trusted by Guyanese voters again.

Starbhai, dem gat 31 seats in parliament and have been consistent with that number. They have nowhere else to go but up. Black consciousness ppl will rise, like it or not. The coolie ppl is done for and in time they themselves will probably try the same things the Black ppl tried, to hold on to power.

Continue praying and preaching for the demise of the coolie people, but they are hard working and always successful, the cream rises to the to.  God put curse pun Blackman. What have you done to help your Black brothers, attacking the Indians don't help.

31 seats currently equates to the opposition. It will stay that way for a while. The PNC has to learn to respect the laws in place and now is as good a time as any.

Freddie missed the Black People Bus. There is an Indian People Bus too, of which Freddie hanging on the ladder at the back. Dem Other People Bus juss putter putter along and nobady paying dem no mind.

In the interests of all the intellectual Black People, Granger shoud have never relinquished the government. Granger should have hung on and let the whole scenerio played out. He interrupted a significant historical moment for Guyana. He postponed an armed for a later time and interrupted the solutions to the ongoing problem of, in Guyana everything leads to a race issue. The PPP has no solutions for anything, they are a bunch indian babooos clutching their dhotis from coming apart and being exposed-typical high and mighty thinking.

Black ppl offered a race solution by taking the country to the brink, and without asking a single question they made the indo to ponder of the future. Sadly, the indo mind also conjures up dominance.

We have no way to go unless we become Guyanese and our elections move away from tribalism. Until that time, I respect the dominace of Guyana's warlords. Granger is a black fool and he should tek Harmon wid him into oblivion. Let Volda prevail.

It is obvious.

What a load of PURE SHIT from Seiggy. He cannot respond to the FACTS stated by Freddy so his illiteracy and Ignorance dominate his Pea brain!!!

My dear Panditji, calm yourself down and read carefully what I have written. At first your anger will get the better of you. After, let the better side of you read the comment again.

Intellectual Blacks are not racists. They want to have the same things you want. To be in control. I guess they and we feel the same feelings, not to be uncomfortable.

Reading Granger and Volda, I get the feeling they do not have cordial experience with Indians. And I know from here and the Backdam, Indians definitely do not appreciate Black ppl.

Prashad solution, divide the place.

Stop fooling yourself.  The PNC got 31 seats because of the other parties in the coalition. Without them, they would have gotten 26 seats only.

The coolie people are not done for.  They make up 42% of the Population and the blacks make up 29%. 'Douglas' makes up 12% and others 17%.

Now you admit that Black people are guilty of rigging the 2020 election.

The PPP party would never try anything so blatantly stupid.

Bhai, they did create the Phantom Gang. That is equivalent to stealing the country.

No, they didn't. The PNC used the Black Police Gang to terrorize Indians all over the country.  They were called "kick down the door bandits"

Members of my family were terrorized by them. When we called the police, those same bandits turned up to investigate.

I am leaving to mellow in your cesspool of Ignorance. Why did the Douglas People abandon the PNC?
