I ASK that you kindly allow me space in your column to talk about a few things I observed over the weekend in relation to the APNU+AFC’s anti-PPP protest and rally in Brooklyn, NY. To say that I find it all to be comical is an understatement. The Coalition and their activists made a big fuss, claiming that they were hosting the protest and rally in demonstration against racism and discrimination by the government. However, from the start of all the speeches, the only racism that was noted was that coming out of the mouths of the speakers. I found it to be quite hypocritical that they were rallying against racism.
Mr. Editor, I wish to draw attention to the speeches that were made by the US Congressman, Hakeem Jefferies over the weekend at both the luncheon, which they hosted, and the rally. Jefferies was critical of the US Ambassador to Guyana, Sarah-Ann Lynch, calling for her removal.
He said that it is time for the Biden Administration to act on the matter. His comments were quite surprising, given his stature, and the fact that he repeated the lies peddled to him by the APNU+AFC without any sort of hesitation. You also recall that this same Jeffries was the lone voice in support of the APNU+AFC during their attempt to rig the March 2, 2020 elections. Back then, he urged the US Government to stop meddling in Guyana’s affairs, a position he is now walking back on with his pleading for the Biden Administration to meddle in Guyana’s affairs. But what is comical is that he is clearly not on the same page as the APNU+AFC when it comes to his position on the Ambassador. If the Opposition truly felt that the Ambassador is racist, as they claim, then how come the Leader of the Opposition and a delegation of his MPs met with her several times over the past months? It just shows how ridiculous these people are.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime. cricketwindies.com/forum/
