Is Ralph Gonsalves a political fraud? By Steve Huggins

Ralph Gonsalves

It might interest you to know that I was one of ‘comrade’ Ralph’s original students, from one of the youngest, and hence most pliable,  group.  I have always recounted to all and sundry, even in international audiences, that he was instrumental in motivating me to transition to the more studious HIGH SCHOOL CULTURE.   I may tell you how, one of these days, if you’re good.

I have ‘benefited’ from College and University training in the West Indies, Europe, and North America.  Don’t jump and tell me the whole ‘colonialist’ hog-wash about the “European” junket, however.   Most of the UWI books that Ralph studied from, great anti-colonialists we at UWI were, were written by WHITE EUROPEAN or NORTH AMERICAN authors, especially in his Social Sciences faculty.   Additionally, I studied in partly Communist and post-communist Europe – – – not very “western ‘colonial’ cultures”.

Outside of UWI, Ralph attended the lesser rated MANCHESTER UNIVERSITY.   Even years hence, one could attend on not more than eighty [80] pounds sterling, visiting the classes on a ‘part-time’ post graduate level, living with your Vincy relatives in England, and even getting part time tutoring jobs to help pay your way through.  Friends, colleagues, and family used to urge me to come and take advantage of this great WHITE BRITISH [COLONIAL POWER] opportunity.

Other Vincentians have gone this route:  Bottom Town’s own Dr. KENNETH JOHN  and Dickson Village’s own CLINTO SPRING, among others.   Ralph shouldn’t give you the idea that he went to heaven when he went to Manchester, if he does.  And, his UWI, Mona campus, was just a COLONIAL APPENDAGE OF A COLONIAL BRITISH UNIVERSITY, which British officers, even if ceremonial, at the top – – – AND MANY PROFESSORS WERE WHITE BRITISH, AMERICAN,  AND BRITISH EMPIRE CITIZENS.

Both he and Kenneth John attended the self-same educational institutions:  BOYS GRAMMAR SCHOOL,  UWI-MONA CAMPUS, and MANCHESTER UNIVERSITY.   They were IN THE SAME FACULTY.   Ralph is ‘special’, or particularly ‘bright’.  No better than Kenneth.  Except, maybe, Kenneth black.

Quite admittedly, Ralph did help to rapidly increase THE PHYSICAL PLANT in the SVG education system, even discounting the “PLY-WOOD” housing he forcibly pushed the younger, more tender and susceptible, students into – – – to make way for the larger intake of high school students.

I had long called for greatly expanded numbers of high school classrooms, students, and teachers – – – even utliizing the then existing facilities.   My immediate crusade, for donkey years, had been to almost IMMEDIATELY turning the then SENIOR SECTIONS OF THE ‘ALL-AGE’ PRIMARY and Post-Primary SCHOOLS, “THE MIDDLE SCHOOLS”, into JUNIOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS.  That was for myriad years prior to Ralph making some effort in that general direction.

That expansion was WOEFULLY OVERDUE – – – just as the VITALLY NECESSARY PAVED HIGHWAY and roads to “CARIB COUNTRY” and TELEPHONES AND ELECTRICITY, SEVERAL PROPER BRIDGES, and full NBC-Radio 705 coverage, there ABOVE THE RABACCA DRY RIVER- – – almost criminally neglected in the past.

Where Ralph has made some effort in any of these directions, or the NDP administrations before him, these are appreciated.  But NOT WITH GUSTO, as these were ALL OVERDUE projects and services.  Thanks; but NO acolytic human-worshipping.  So, too, with the LONG-OVERDUE expanded Secondary (High) School education services.   BUT, where, on earth, do you see cause for human idol worshipping?  Are you that crass?

Your human idol was merely doing NO MORE THAN WAS EXPECTED OF ANY ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE.  And, he even came in THROUGH THE POLITICAL BACK DOOR.   Rastaman say “Back ah Death” !

But, it would be the very height of IGNORANCE AND FOOLISHNESS to CONFUSE THE PROVISION OF EXPANDED PHYSICAL FACILITIES, even “Plywood”ones, WITH ACTUAL EDUCATIONAL OR ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE.

OUR ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE IS STILL DOWN and UNTENABLY LOW, even with lowered actual requirements, compared to our performances in the past or with our Eastern Caribbean neighbours.

The inept Ralph administration failed to make adequate provisions or preparations for the greatly multiplied influx of eleven plus students into our expanded high school population.   Little or no training of remedial and SWD specialist teachers was done, or, indeed, politically anticipated !  Hence the tremendous pedagogical headache created for the SVG high schools.

From extensive experience, this phenomenon would result in drastic, negative, impact on the normal performances of the schools.  A lot of resources, which would otherwise have been a great filip to our education system, were unfortunately wasted. misused, and underutilized.

What Ralph’s ULP ADMINISTRATION HAVE DONE is quite in order, expected, and not unprecendented.   It was, and is, just par for the course.  Your party idol is NOT ANY KIND OF POLITICAL SUPERMAN.    He is just an ordinary politician.  Yes, JUST A POLITICIAN.

The only difference is that he has espoused MARXISM-LENINISM or COMMUNIST ATHEISM for most of his life.  And, he keeps some sordid DESPOTIC, MEGALO-MANIAC company, who are the COMMUNIST JUNTA  among the TIN-POT LATIN AMERICAN MILITARY DICTATORSHIPS, led by rubber stamp CENTRAL COMMITTEE of THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF CUBA.

That sinister IDEOLOGY, and those associations, sound the DEATH-KNELL of SVG FREEDOM, INDEPENDENCE, AND REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY.

AND, herein lies the problem.   As a true COMMUNIST DOCTRINAIRE IDEOLOGIST, Ralph would strategically have little or no real interest in our students and schools improving our academic performances.    Our failure in this area would be used as a TACTICAL COMMUNIST PRETEXT TO BRING IN HIS COMMUNIST GUERILLA CADRES FROM COMMUNIST CUBA, as his proffered communist ‘solution.’

One of the biggest PLANKS IN THE MARXIST-LENINIST MODUS OPERANDI IS TO IDEOLOGICALLY INDOCTRINATE THE CHILDREN AND YOUTH of the targeting victim population, and thus ENSURING THEIR TOTAL, ABSOLUTE, COMMUNIST INFILTRATION AND SUBVERSION of our WEST INDIAN SOCIETIES – – – to MAKE WAY FOR THE TOTAL VIOLENT OVERTHROW OF OUR FREE, REPRESENTATIVE,  CONSTITUTIONAL DEMOCRACIES.

THAT would be the completion of just ONE MORE STEP in their ideological MARCH TOWARD their vainly envisoned BLOODY, VIOLENT, WORLD COMMUNIST REVOLUTION.

IF YOU are NOT JUST A POLITICAL CAD, Caddy, then you WOULD INVESTIGATE AND STUDY why the RUSSIAN COMMUNISTS’ SOVIET UNION concentrated on “offering” FREE EDUCATION to the children and young people in COMMUNIST RUSSIA, MAOIST COMMUNIST CHINA, AND CASTROITE COMMUNIST CUBA [ ‘Isle of Youth’], among others.

This is their perceived CERTAIN COMMUNIST ROAD to ‘SOCIALIST VICTORY’ – – – BY THE CRIMINAL INDOCTRINATION  AND MENTAL-PSYCHOLOGICAL ENSLAVEMENT OF OUR YOUTH AND CHILDREN.   Look what bloody Mao ‘achieved’ with them in the MAD, DERANGED ‘CULTURAL REVOLUTION’ .

Do you see, now, their STRATEGY, TACTICS, and NEFARIOUS IDEOLOGICAL GOALS in COMMUNIZING OUR EDUCATION ?  The ‘free scholarships’  of castroism  are but A DIRECT COPY OF THE COMMUNIST INDOCTRINATION CENTERS OF THE SOVIET RUSSIAN COMMUNISTS.   Explore them !

Yet, our Eastern Caribbean people, and leaders, are blindly accommodating these LIKE HEEDLESS LEMMINGS TO THE REGIONAL SLAUGHTER.

NOBODY IS TELLING CARICOM/ OECS LEADERS NOT TO ‘COZY UP’ WITH THESE BLOODY COMMUNIST DESPOTS, ARE THEY?

HENCEFORTH, we must re-double our efforts to improve, excel, and re-gain OUR EDUCATIONALLY EXCELLENT PERFORMANCES.

Remember that the Communists FOISTED Communist CUBAN nurses and doctors on us?  Remember their poor level of training and competence, as determined and shockingly discovered by our SVG medical personnel ?

What became of our SVG SCHOOL OF NURSING AND ALLIED HEALTH SERVICES ?   Why, then, do we need these CUBAN COMMUNIST plants, who are not infrequently SCHOOLED IN COMMUNIST IDEOLOGY AND MILITIA WARFARE ?

Why,  in “SCRUNTING” SVG,  do we EMPLOY AND PAY FOR CUBAN COMMUNIST DRIVERS and UNSKILLED ‘WORKERS’, or CUBAN MILITARY IRREGULARS, when so many SVG workers can’t find work ?

Don’t we have enough UNEMPLOYED DRIVERS, CHAFFEURS, HEAVY MACHINERY OPERATORS, and UNEMPLOYED YOUTHS ?

WHY is this POOR, SUFFERING, COUNTRY BEING FORCED BY THIS UNPATRIOTIC POLITICAL DESPOT TO PAY FOR FOREIGN CUBAN WORKERS, WHEN SO MANY OF OUR SVG PEOPLE DON’T HAVE JOBS, CAN’T MAKE ENDS MEET, AND ARE RESIGNED TO unsustainable CREDIT AND BEGGING THEIR DAILY BREAD ?

Did you say, “EDUCATION REVOLUTION” ?   WHAT kind of ‘Revolution’ ?

REVOLUTION, FOR WHAT ???!!!

An ‘education revolution’ – – – WITHOUT PERFORMANCE and  MINUS IMPROVEMENT ?

You already have FOREIGN, CUBAN, WORKERS, NURSES, DOCTORS, DRIVERS . . .

GET READY FOR THE INFLUX OF CUBAN ‘TEACHERS’  – – – er . . . CUBAN MILITIAS and MILITARY IRREGULARS . . . and CUBAN COMMUNIST INDOCTRINATION SPECIALISTS.

QUO VADIS, SVG.   How long shall we VINCENTIANS tolerate this gross communist exploitation and take-over ?!

    STEVE-HUGGINS, I always find your writings brilliantly factual and informing and reminding people what they know but simply forget.

    I for one heed your warning about Marxist-Leninism in SVG, you are spot on about what the end game is that GONSALVES is playing.

    Middle and upper class people do not serve GONSALVES doctrine, he needs to reduce us all to peasants’ to be able to ram us up with his theology and indoctrination.

    Thank you Steve for your brilliant writings.

    It would be niceif you get straight to the point instead of using untold words and jargon .It makes people lose interest when you are making a valued point. As for university in Britian we have quite a few depending on what you want to study . no university in no different to the next one depending in what you want to study and where you live so dont knock it .

    • If there are no difference in universities, then why is there a global rating system for them, and why is a uwi degree not recognised anywhere other than the Caribbean. Why did gonsalves send his son to cambridge instead of uwi..I know what he’s studying there is offered at uwi, and steve knocked people around so you can have some knowledge of history (if you don’t know) and some of his history.

  3. I’ve been saying a lot of these things to people (not as detailed), and most of them have seen all the wrongs that have been done by the government..we need to get rid of ralph, but my question is, who else is there??? I really have no faith in the NDP anymore, NONE! O’Neil brought his party, and I hope people saw the idea behind it all, that its not about voting green party, but that there can be other options. I wonder, is it that they are coward, or are they lazy to get together to form another party, or is it the international stage they worry about?

    Anyway Steve, great article..keep them coming.
