LGBTQ – THE ELECTED & HIDDEN ‘DICKTATORSHIP’ OF ‘BULBADHUS’

Submitted by Pachamama

While most remain distracted with the dos and don’ts of political-economy, the Mugabe regime in Bulbadhus has made prophetic the admonitions of OSA. Arthur had told all who would listen to him that he would never leave the BLP in the hands of Mugabe. While Mugabe, like Obama, pretends to be singing from the same hymnal as ‘his’ forbearers, ‘she’ has spared no effort in the construction of a tapestry of interlocking networks of ‘her’ LGBTQ ‘folks’ within the very ‘seat’ of governmental power in Bulbadhus. ‘It is a hidden government (within a government) operating like a mafia’, a source close to the administration tells us.

We, for a year now, have been receiving reports that regardless to the point of approach one has to navigate a series of LGBTQ networks, characterized by differing personalities and with no less than an obvious determination to empower their people. Not that Barbados is unfamiliar with this ethic, however the overt politicization of this brand of ‘identity politics’ in Barbados represents a stark departure from the past and delivers for Mugabe, like Obama before ‘her’, the undisputed title of the first lesbian prime minister of Barbados, maybe in the Caribbean as well.

We have people, near to and far from Mugabe, coming to us, making the same general types of complaints, they go like this. They would go to Mugabe or she would call them in to meet and then a referral is likely to be made. The making of such a referral it turns out, time after time, to be the equivalent of ‘kicking the matter into the tall grasses’. A grassy area infested with ‘bullers’ and ‘wickers’ experienced to have a firm, unbreakable, commitment to the LGBTQ mafia and to that mafia alone. This means that anybody who is seen as not having the required links will see their proposals and projects ‘offered-up’ to members within the LGBTQ government networks for exploitation. It is not our case however, that these formations are necessarily monolithic.

We have a report that there was a certain directorate which was preferred for a specific person. However, a senior member of the mafia thought that that allocation could have been redirected elsewhere, to a place nearer home. And it was Mugabe, ‘herself’, who then had to behave badly, as badly as we would expect a ‘lion of a woman’ could in order to install a known kleptomaniac instead. We have these kinds of reports but seek not to get anybody in trouble.

And Mugabe continues to play this double-game with the people of Barbados, exhibiting dangerous, even existential, contradictions. For example, she has oft opined, publicly, that the population is getting older, that there are not enough younger people in the population. Very well! But how is the covert and overt promotion of the LGBTQ discourses and praxis, as a national project, to serve population stabilization and development. Are we somehow on the threshold of a scientific breakthrough where men could breed other men or women other women? How could it be possible, for a prime minister, with a straight face, could preach one thing but actively seek to subvert that which Ma’at, Ptah, Sambo, Ani have thusly ordained? Indeed, how is the destruction of the human species by the LGBTQ ‘folks’ any less profligate than the killing of up to 300 life forms monthly? What are the links between the people who are close to her, people who served to sterilize the Barbadian population for decades, the eugenicist and now these LBGTQ people currently controlling the government of Barbados? How it is that Mugabe could redirect economic support from the traditional family structures while seeking to elevate other formations where there is no centrality of children, all in the dead of night? These, and more, are internal contradictions which the Mugabe regime can never reconcile nor does it pretend to.

LGBTQ people, now the GoB and their supporters are unthinkingly supporting the extension of imperialism. An end-stage American, White imperialism which can go no further but being on its death bed seeks to gnaw on the bones of those who still believe that it has something to offer them. It asks us to forget that none of the structural problems of capitalism have been solved, can be solved. These are the essentially questions of race, class, poverty and all which flow therefrom. In response, capitalism and imperialism pretend to present a social formation to deliver comfort to people who see themselves as having issues separate from those which we all suffer. Irrational identity games currently at play are no substitute for radical and fundamental transformation necessary. They cannot avoid the cultural dead-end facing us!

    i listened to Sleepy again and yes that was an important piece of history coming from the man himself. no airs no pretense. i cant imagine living in those times. yes some new set blacks sometimes pretend that they came from a long line of aristocrats when in truth they are 3-4 times removed from the plantation system.

    the way Sleepy described how they (Barrow and Him) had to scratch to me a living and how they represented the poor man are remarkable.

    it pained me to see the unions walking and protesting with the white private sector and the grand daughter of the leader of the conservative party – persons traditionally with whom they had nothing in common.

    Lamming’s lecture is equally informative.

    it is really important for us to get this history recorded otherwise some will look to revise history as i see some try to do on this site

    Sir James had a niece who worked or works as a caterer. A wonderful cook, who prepared beautiful meals for 100 at a time and made it look easy. A lovely generous woman. I doubt very much that she would let her uncle go hungry. She certainly did not let other people go hungry.

    And as I said before even though the basic old age pension is not generous it is sufficient to prevent even poor people from going hungry.

    Hal talks about people engaging in gossip. His story is by his own admission nothing but gossip. Something that a politician told him about somebody who has been dead nearly 25 years.

    As I said if my parents, a housewife-domestic/tradesman, Tudor’s contemporaries were not going hungry in the 1990’s it is highly unlikely that a senior fellow like Sir James whose pension was likely 5 to 10 times theirs could have been going hungry. I was very familiar with my parents’ situation because for the 14 years of their decline I visited them every 3rd day. My other siblings did the other days so that they were visited every day for 14 years. If I was absent for a brief period one of my adult children filled in for me. During a good part of that period a domestic helper was on duty for 40 hours per week. Sometimes half day on Saturdays was paid at the overtime rate.

    This is not hearsay of life in Barbados for people of modest means in the 1990’s and early 21st century. This is not a report from somebody resident in the U.K. for many, many decades, This is a real real report from a real real person who did not just talk the talk, but who walked the walk.

    I doubt Hal’s story.

    I doubt as well the politician who allegedly told him the tall tale.

  • This story has bothered me a little.
    I really do not care about whether it is true or false. The man is gone and so it has impact only on his history and sadly it tarnishes it.

    If it is false, it is a smear that has been introduced in this man’s story. And given the meanness of our two party system, they are some who will never doubt the story and some who will doubt the story but yet repeat it.

    And if it is true? What have we gained by its revelation? Who was helped? Who was hurt? What dimensions does it add to our knowledge of this man? One group will say that, regardless of the consequences/import the full story should be told; I, on the other hand, believe that if it diminishes a person in some way, the story should be told but when, where and to who must be a part of the equation. Broadcasting to the general public is a no-no..

    In my book, Hall has failed by not fully checking this story before broadcasting it.

    I understand implicitly the model of compensation for digital output and the writings of these literary men should not go unrewarded.

    But here is the thing, hoarding this tryp of literary genius outside the lifetime of the author puts the same thing that one seeks to capitalize on AT RISK OF BEING LOST FOREVER.

    These should at least be PODCASTS but to hide this information for a publishing house, when you yourself recognise that the accustomed literary appreciation and deconstruction that a Wickham would have pursued in his newspaper IS GONE FOREVER?

    My point is this.

    In ancient times the conquering hordes would invade, kill, rape, pillage and burn many of the renowned Bibliotheques of the World.

    While there is no such overt action I respectfully suggest that men like you and Tom Clarke and others seen here are like this Saracen horde but you are doing the same pillaging from within THOUGH QUIETLY

    A good journalist, or even a mediocre retired journalist does not repeat a piece of gossip regardless of how unimpeachable he believes his unnamed source to be. A good journalist, or even a mediocre retired journalist seeks to verify the story before repeating it in public.

    I mean what if I repeated something here that I said that some unnamed person had said about Hal, and then further I say “oh I’ve never met Hal.”

    Thar sort of behaviour is unacceptable from teens on social media.

    It is reprehensible when done by elderly men and women, because they are old enough to know better.

    I checked with one of my elementary school buddies, a recently retired senior public servant, and was told that the pensions for such people averages about $9,000 BDS per month, equivalent to about $4,500 USD per month, 3,533 British pounds, 3,954 Euro, more that enough to provide adequate food for an elder.

  • Of course, the pensions for the many lazy civil servants are far too high. In view of the laziness in the public sector, the salary should not be higher than 4000 BBD gross per month and the pension should not be higher than 2000 BBD gross. If that’s too low for them, they can work in the private sector. Then they will see that there is much less pay and harder work. It’s not enough to keep complaining and bragging about some psdeudo education. They are good at inventing excuses, but shy away from hard work.

    Who is to blame for the high public debt? Right, the civil servants, because the former government has incurred too much debt to feed these figures. They live at the expense of the private sector like maggots in rotten meat.

  • We must finally discard all the ballast and focus on economic growth. We need mass emigration of expensive pensioners and welfare recipients and, in return, massive tax cuts and social security cuts.

    The current system cannot generate growth because it only encourages the lazy and the stupid and discourages the capable and the intelligent to do more for their country.

    Simple,

    of course I fully support your demand for reparations. It is a reasonable, fair and just demand.

    The British must finally pay for the crimes they committed against humanity between 1500 and 1970. They always try to distract with their victory against Nazi Germany and to show off as liberators of the world. At the same time they refuse to compensate the coloured peoples of this earth for more than three hundred years of cruelty.

    And don’t think my accusation of laziness is a racist code word for blacks in Barbados. The white Barbadians profit most from the taxpayer and make the greatest demands without any effort. So first we have to stop the government from continuing to subsidise white Barbadians. They are rich enough already.

    Until the British have transferred at least £1 billion to Barbados as compensation, there will be no justice.

    Not just the British, but starting with the Italian Christopher Columbus, the Italians, the Spanish, the French, the Portugese, the Dutch, the Americans, the Germans, the Belgians. They all benefitted tremendously from the hundreds of years of free labour from the black people whom they enslaved. The wealth still exists. It has not disappeared.

    When black people are called lazy I always ask if black people were lazy would white people have sought out black people as their preferred work force for hundreds of years? I have never met a single lazy black person, and I know thousands of black people.

    I don’t THINK, notice I said think, and not feel. I don’t THINK that working class and middle class Bajans should be asked to pay more taxes in order to fund higher pensions for senior officials who already receive 5 to 10 times more that the ordinary taxpayer.

    I just checked some of my old documents and found that in January 2002 my father’s National Insurance “non-contributory” pension was $344 per month. He was born early in the 20th century, so did not have enough contributions to the NIS to receive what is called a “contributory” pension. He and tens of thousands like him contributed ALL of their labour to this economy (well except for the time during World War 2, when he had to go away leaving his wife and two young children for a number of years) He went to work from age 11 and continued working until his 90’s successfully raised a large family, all of them taxpayers, none of them dependent on any state, and at the end of his life well into the 21st century, for his labours he received a pension $344 BDS per month. $344 BDS is about $172 USD, 135 British pounds, 227 Canadian or 151 Euro per month. In the 21st century some of the privileged classes would spend that amount on a dinner for 2 with a bottle of house wine.

    It is a fact that the Barbadian administrative apparatus is among the most unproductive in the world. When I get into a government office, half the staff hang around chatting instead of working. I don’t know of a single officer who’s ever had a heart attack because of overwork. All international investors bitterly deplore the low productivity and the lack of responsibility of local management.

    What did the government do with all the debt from 2008 to 2018: it paid for the huge overhead of civil servants. Barbados is totally bankrupt thanks to more than fifty years of false politics. Instead of using debt to improve infrastructure, governments have just stuffed the hungry mouths of many civil servants.

    Stop closing your eyes to all this false patriotism and keep singing the song of the welfare state here. The many unemployed and the people who had to emigrate because the island is ruined cannot, unfortunately, buy anything from false patriotism. Your solution is to add more oil to the fire, hire more civil servants and increase the debt.

    As long as the Barbadians still think they have a kind of natural right to debt-financed prosperity, the island will continue to suffer under the local mentality. Fortunately, we now have Mia Mottley. She works very hard, day and night, quite different from the bureaucratic apparatus.

    Nobody “gives” their life to public service. Public service is not a volunteer activity. Senior Bajan politicians and civil servants are paid and pensioned very well, especially compared to the average tax payer. After all they are the ones who get to decide that their salaries and pensions will be 5 to 10 times the basic pension. The rest of us have no such power. It is the responsibility of every person to manage their money very, very carefully, because especially as we come to old age, it is unlikely that anybody will want to pay us well, or even pay us at all for anything.

    I hope that the current senior officials do not see themselves as “giving almost their entire adult life to public service.”

    Every single current elected official desired and competed for the office which they now hold. It is right that we pay them well. It is right that we pension them well. But it is THEIR RESPONSIBILITY to manage their salaries and pensions well. And if they become incompetent in old age it is THEIR RESPONSIBILITY to cultivate excellent relationships with younger family members NOW so that in old age there is somebody who LOVES them, and helps them to manage. Being childless does not excuse any human being from cultivating excellent relationships with younger family members. If we have no children, surely we all have nieces and nephews, cousins etc. A job is just a job. Even if that job is Cabinet Minister or Prime Minister. We ALL need excellent family relationships. It is in the interest of us all to remember that the job or the money can’t provide hands on care. We ALL need LOVING PEOPLE around us who will arrange or provide that hands on care.

    A word to the wise is sufficient.

    Going out now to pay some taxes.

    @ Hee Haw

    You are even more Stoopid than you claim to be.

    Let me share with you the metamorphosis that has happened right before your very eyes BOT WHICH YOU MISSED.

    1…I no longer use diatribes to the extent that was necessary in the past WHY IS THAT?

    4 reasons.

    One Mugabe’s name has been cemented so Phase 1 has been achieved.

    Two. People are watching her.

    The Relentless attack FROM THD BEGINNING OF HER SO CALLED HONEYMOON permitted one to made a series of statements about how selfish and despotic Mottley is.

    And true to form de predictions of thd ole man have come to pass.

    3…Look and the groundswell poochlicker number two.

    Every single day several persons OTHER THAN DE OLE MAN come yo the blog AND THEY POST.

    But look at the threads Hee Haw

    The majority of the threads are dissenting views!!!

    And all across Barbados AND THE DIASPORA cant you feel the Pulse?

    IT IS A QUIET ANTI MUGABE MOTTLEY SENTIMENT THAT HAS BEEN STARTED BY MY DIATRIBE AND THAT OF THE GAG TEAM which, as your boss has noticed, IS BUILDING!!!

    Disgruntled supporters of the Mugabe regime ARE SPEAKING OUT.

    WHILE WALKING ON BROAD STREET in front of Parliament!!!

    And do you not notice the difference in my submissions here over the last three months?

    I have “played” the part of the rabid dog really well, but of late the Ole Piece has returned.

    Calm and collective, jovial, entertaining, comical, bittingly focused AS IF ANOTHER PERSON.

    Or is it?

    The wise man can play thd part of the fool, but the fool cannot play the part of the wise man.

    FOUR.

    I PIECE UH DE ROCK YEAH RIGHT now transformed into Piece the Legend, HERE AND NOW PREDICT THAT, MIA AMOR MOTTLEY, WILL BE A ONE TERM GOVERNMENT!!!

    She will be defeated at the polls by the same THIRD PARTY MOVEMENT that your 20 man team that was assigned here TO DESTROY!!

    But you understand that you are failing BUT YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT de ole man is doing now do you?

    The Fire came yet God was not there

    The Earthquake came yet God was not there and the Wind came and God was not there

    You and your ilk ARE INCAPABLE OF HEARING HIS VOICE because you are spawn of the Evil One

    In the quiet of the night your Assyrians will descend on your camp, AND MASTICATE WUNNA.

    But enough of this, Watch The Legend now…

    No, but you haven’t been proven right either, so we have a stalemate – the alleged words of “someone” that you have “the highest respect for” and disbelieving bloggers. All you’ve done is succumb to, in your words, ‘The Bajan condition” as a gossip monger,

    Congratulations! You may move to the head of the class.

    Legend,

    No one can match our beloved Prime Minister. She towers over all Barbadians like Mount Everst towers over the Himalayas.

    Soon not only Donville Inniss will be sentenced, but the Americans will hunt down more former ministers. This is the right time for our beloved Prime Minister to declare a national emergency on the grounds that large sections of the police, the judiciary and the incompetent DPP are unwilling to take action against corruption.

    Our Prime Minister may declare a state of emergency herself because the Governor-General of Barbados was appointed by the old government and is therefore partisan. Mia Mottley must proclaim herself chief prosecutor, lord justice and executor to clean Barbados of this blue plague at all levels.

    We now need the military to remove all loyal supporters of the DLP from the civil service, so that the citizens can finally be redeemed from the blue terror.

  • I’m sticking with it. You call it psychosis. I call it the crime of DLP bigwigs. The Prime Minister should indeed declare a state of emergency to defend democracy against its enemies.

    We clearly have a situation where the police in Barbados remain inactive, although media reports show very clear evidence of systemic corruption in the old government.

    We need an uprising of the decent people. If Mia Mottley calls for a protest in front of police headquarters to end this injustice, thousands should join her.

    Democracy is in danger. The legitimate government is being attacked by nameless forces. In this troubled hour, it is the duty of all patriots to defend the government against the subversive work of DLP supporters. Anyone who knows a DLP member should report it to the government.

  • Who would be foolish enough to argue with Romans 1:16-28 (TPT Version)???

    “I refuse to be ashamed of sharing the wonderful message of God’s liberating power unleashed in us through Christ! For I am thrilled to preach that everyone who believes is saved—the Jew first, and then people everywhere! This gospel unveils a continual revelation of God’s righteousness – a perfect righteousness given to us when we believe. And it moves us from receiving life through faith to the power of living by faith. This is what the Scripture means when it says:

    “We are right with God through life-giving faith!”

    “For God in heaven unveils his holy anger breaking forth against every form of sin, both toward ungodliness that lives in hearts and evil actions. For the wickedness of humanity deliberately smothers the truth and keeps people from acknowledging the truth about God. In reality, the truth of God is known instinctively, for God has embedded this knowledge inside every human heart. Opposition to truth cannot be excused on the basis of ignorance, because from the creation of the world, the invisible qualities of God’s nature have been made visible, such as his eternal power and transcendence. He has made his wonderful attributes easily perceived, for seeing the visible makes us understand the invisible. So then, this leaves everyone without excuse.

    Throughout human history[af] the fingerprints of God were upon them, yet they refused to honour Him as God or even be thankful for His kindness. Instead, they entertained corrupt and foolish thoughts about what God was like. This left them with nothing but misguided hearts, steeped in moral darkness. Although claiming to be super-intelligent, they were, in fact, shallow fools. For only a fool would trade the unfading splendour of the immortal God to worship the fading image of other humans, idols made to look like people, animals, birds, and even creeping reptiles!

    This is why God lifted off his restraining hand and let them have full expression of their sinful and shameful desires. They were given over to moral depravity, dishonouring their bodies by sexual perversion among themselves – all because they traded the truth of God for a lie. They worshipped and served the things God made rather than the God who made all things – glory and praises to him for eternity of eternities! Amen!

    For this reason, God gave them over to their own disgraceful and vile passions. Enflamed with lust for one another, men and women ignored the natural order and exchanged normal sexual relations for homosexuality. Women engaged in lesbian conduct and men committed shameful acts with men, receiving in themselves the due penalty for their deviation.

    And because they thought it was worthless to embrace the true knowledge of God, God gave them over to a worthless mind-set, to break all rules of proper conduct. Their sinful lives became full of every kind of evil, wicked schemes, greed, and cruelty. Their hearts overflowed with jealous cravings, and with conflict and strife, which drove them into hateful arguments and murder. They are deceitful liars – full of hostility. They are gossipers who love to spread malicious slander. With inflated egos, they hurl hateful insults at God, yet they are nothing more than arrogant boasters. They are rebels against their parents and totally immoral. They are senseless, faithless, ruthless, heartless, and completely merciless. Although they are fully aware of God’s laws and proper order, and knowing that those who do all of these things deserve to die, yet they still go headlong into darkness, encouraging others to do the same and applauding them when they do!

    ENOUGH SAID!!!

    It is clear that you did not take your prescribed medication. A pity.

    When I was young and wet behind the ears, and imagined things as they should be rather than as they are, an older friend wised me up. He told me “if your grandmother had balls, she would be your grandfather. But she don’t and she ain’t.”

    An honorable minister has told the press this:

    “Referencing numerous untrue social media messages about the actions and movements of cabinet Ministers, Abrahams accused power -hungry opposition forces of attempting to destabilize the Government.”

    That’s the way it is. The honourable minister apparently reads my contributions and appreciates my warnings. It is nice that the ministers are now intelligent people who listen to good advice.

    Since everyone on the forum is singing the songs of opposition, it is my job to set the red banner against the storm and blow the trombone of Jericho.

    Is your ‘trusted’ recommendation based personal experience?

    Is this your true testimony, Simple Simon, the one who has done every thing imaginable under the Bajan and foreign sun and has the solution to all human problems in the quicksilver of blaming men for anything that goes wrong?

    So here is a lesson in blame theory identifying the source of all sin:

    “And when the woman saw that the tree [was] good for food, and that it [was] pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make [one] wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

    And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they [were] naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.”
