The attack on Mr. Kissoon falls into a pattern of political behaviour
I thank heaven that the barefaced and cowardly attack on Mr. Freddie Kissoon did not come from the typical street person, who gets the bad name for everything bad in Guyana. The offender’s mode of escape shows that the offender or his handler is not of the suffering class.The attack on Mr. Kissoon, well known for his solidarity with those he knows to be sufferers and victims of injustice, and now with Lindeners, falls into a pattern of political behaviour.
Clearly it comes from the government or its defenders. Although he escaped serious injury the attack must be classed among the Ugliest, coming from a political desert and a wish to control everything and everyone in sight. In 2010 they attacked him with human body waste. Now they thrown a human body itself unto the fray, wasting a whole person. That is not all. They fired him as an academic (Editor’s note: Mr. Kissoon’s UG contract was terminated before it was scheduled to end and was not renewed) with the special provision, worthy of the courts, that he should never be hired again in any capacity. Mr. Ramkarran tried to be a good party member and to correct his comrades from within, as Mr. Ramjattan and Mr. Nagamootoo had done in their time. They have shut up their own comrades.
Now they want to shut up the population. Some do not have to be told to shut up. The eminent Mr. Ashton Chase is silent by choice, while Dr Luncheon and Mr. Prime Minister Hinds babble by choice.I just want to bring a truth from natural science into present day political affairs.If the DNA of those who walked the earth in Africa thousands of years ago is in all of us., Africans and others, then the political DNA of those who were active in past times remains in the political system.
Not everyone will agree, I know. But we are deceiving ourselves if we pretend or believe that because of age or inactivity “it has nothing to do” with us.But then self-deception is a national illness. In the full glare of the 2011 general election results the President appointed a one- party administration so that the same clique could control the wealth of the country. There was no outcry from the free press or from the opposition. We have conspired in depriving the voters of their rightful entitlements. And that is one reason why Linden happened. and we are in mourning,
