300px-lynching-of-lige-daniels<<< Postcard depicting the lynching of Lige Daniels, Center, Texas, USA, August 3, 1920. The back reads, “This was made in the court yard in Center, Texas. He is a 16 year old Black boy. He killed Earl’s grandma. She was Florence’s mother. Give this to Bud. From Aunt Myrtle.” As discussed in the article, lynchings were often motivated by economics, or were retaliations for violations of Jim Crow etiquette, with false accusations of murder made in order to justify them. This picture depicts a modern day slaughter by the Christies and their goons in the PLP. Perry Christie on Sunday told a room filled with young people on Grand Bahama, anyone who challenge him will be shut down.

Freeport, Grand Bahama – With its leader now refusing to step down, the Progressive Liberal Party is quickly turning into an organized model of the Ku Klux Klan. PLPs should now become very concern with the behavior of its leader Perry Gladstone Christie. Young liberals will not have it anymore and Christie’s Hitler like ways is turning the PLP into a machine of hate, this time against young people. [Who makeup 70% of the Bahamian electorate].

Bahamas Press learned over the weekend Christie had traveled to the Island of Grand Bahama to scrap support for his October election. To our surprise young liberal attending the function quickly discovered that the event was not what was announced to be.

“The meeting was first designed as a youth forum for presentations by some bright college students. The PLP House, however, was also pack with members of the Women’s Branch, aka Perry political sweethearts,” a Progressive Young Liberal member explained.

“Therefore his had his fan club out there. The panel addressed concerns in education, immigration, the economy, health and tourism. After the panel of presenters answered questions, Christie got up and spoke for an hour and a half.”

This is typical Christie galvanizing his rank and file to now drum up his supporters for his upcoming October PLP leadership race. However, BP understood that what sprayed from the lips of Christie was an odious message of “DEATH” to his opponents at the upcoming convention.

“He spoke about him as a young PLP etcetera. Then he went on to say that he is not a weak leader and began complaining a little to try to secure his votes.  Christie began bragging how long he’s been in the business of politics [More than  32 years] and how he’s never lost an election,” The PLY member said. Now that was a DAMN LIE by Christie because May 2, 2007, is now recorded in the annals of Bahamian history and cannot ever be erased. Christie lost the last general elections to Hubert Alexander Ingraham and the FNM! In history he’s also the first oneterm Prime Minister of The Bahamas.christie.jpg

And according to the PYL member, this is where Christie’s Nazi like speech got sour, “He further went on to say, anyone who challenge him will be shut down”

Christie continued saying that in life there are consequences and if you do things without thinking it through properly you will not succeed. “I am still the right man for the job. Until I see the right person to lead, I will gracefully move out of the way but there is no one who can lead the PLP other than PERRY G CHRISTIE,” Christie said.

His comments were well received by the old stalwarts who went on screaming in a shout. But whilst the old was cheering with the aging leader of the PLP,  young persons who were in the majority at the meeting and are calling for CHANGE in the PLP shook their heads while others left the room and were seen gathering outside while Christie spoke his self praise remarks.

Firstly readers must remember that the event was suppose to be a ‘Youth Forum’, it later changed it to a PLP Women’s Branch event with college students who don’t live anywhere on the island.

The young PLP told Bahamas Press, “We have branch executives who are young college graduates on the island but was not even notified to take part in the event. That’s the game they say, That’s how it is.” Hmmmmmmmm!

But as we said in our opening post, the PLP organization is now being fast tracked as a model of the Ku Klux Klan as its leader cries “DEATH” to his opponents.  My goodness could people really sit under someone saying things like that?

    Thanks for the update bcos as an interested citizen of our country am perturbed at all the innuendos taking place in order to attempt to gain political leverage.Your identities is greatly appreciated as now no one can blame others for presenting these facts.

  2. THE VOICE OF THE YOUNG PEOPLE
    This article is being written in response to an article posted on the Bahamas Press website on August 10th, 2009 at 8:48am. The Bahamas Press should be embarrassed that they have compromised the integrity of their press coverage just to score political points. They, as a supposedly credible news source, have degraded themselves to nothing more than a bloggers paradise of fallacies and misinterpretations. Are they so desperate for readers that they are willing to abandon their ethical foundation?
    How can the misinformed author of that piece make a comparison between the Progressive Liberal Party and the Ku Klux Klan? Not only are they misinformed about Sunday’s meeting but also history. For if any organization is operating in the model of the Ku Klux Klan is a malignant group of people that operate in secrecy and thrive on ruining an organization through promoting disunity, and not for the right reasons but for egotistical and selfish purposes. We invite the author to explain to us just how Mr. Perry G. Christie is “turning the PLP into a machine of hate” and is presenting an “odious message of DEATH” when Mr. Christie was fervently rooted in his message of hope, peace and unity. Surely, these are not the characteristics of Adolf Hitler. Unlike Christie, Hitler ruthlessly destroys anyone that opposes his way rather than invite those to openly express their disagreements. As a matter of fact it can be argued that the reason why Mr. Christie is often falsely portrayed as a soft leader is because he encourages difficult perspectives rather than pure dictatorship.
    Sunday afternoon was an activity that was brilliantly organized by the Women’s Branch of the PLP here on Grand Bahama. It was constructed to allow several young person’s to speak to the senior members of the party as well as the Leader; it was not a forum for Progressive Young Liberals. The gentleman interviewed in the Bahama Press article had every opportunity at Sunday’s event to voice his concerns and opinions if he was genuinely concerned about the state of our country. It saddens us that he did not take the advantage of this opportunity, and leads us to question the presence of ulterior motives. Contrary to what was reported, this was not a referendum of who should lead the party into the next general election, and it was not an event used for the Leader of the Opposition to score any political gain.
    The panel was comprised of seven young individuals who covered a broad spectrum of society. All of the individuals on the panel were born and bred on the island of Grand Bahama and are quite privy to what goes on locally. The article posted on the Bahama Press website would have you believe that the young persons were born and raised in Timbuktu. The informational session that was held on Sunday lasted approximately three (3) hours and Mr. Perry Christie only spoke for roughly thirty (30) minutes. Two and a half hours were solely dedicated to the voices of the young people of this nation.
    We are not writing this article from a political perspective, but more on a platform of principle. The malicious attack on the Leader of the Opposition was an underhanded attempt to divide a party from within; and the allegations are a blatant lie. The article written in the Bahama Press is filled with misquotations; erroneous claims and outright disrespect. If you choose not to respect the man, it is your duty to respect the office.
    This article has been written by the young persons who sat on the panel and were given the opportunity to give our views on our vision for our nation. Mr. Christie then at the end gave us very encouraging words to live by. He enumerated accomplishments of the party and how they fit into the grand scheme of things. He did not attempt to “pat” himself on the back. However he proceeded to tell us that nothing in life is worth it if it is not worth fighting for. Mr. Christie welcomed competition and displayed the spirit of a fighter. If the most the author gathered from Sunday’s event was that Christie was “galvanizing his rank and file to drum up his supporters”, then it is obvious that he gained nothing from what was presented and his concerns for the issues relating to our country is absolutely disingenuous.
    Considering the fact that there are often limited opportunities for young people to voice their opinions it is a crying shame that an event so wholesome has been bombarded with mendacity to bring about such negativity. As we the panelists spoke about change, it is change that we need in order to achieve unity within this nation. As college students, who in the future want to give back to our country, we need not to stand on a crippled foundation of back-biting, hypocrisy and greed.

    • Bahamas Press welcomes this response crafted to rebuke what we indeed reported at a meeting on the island of Grand Bahama on Sunday past. We wonder if these respondents not find it strange that the leader of the Progressive Liberal Party would travel to Grand Bahama to discuss matters relative to The Bahamas, and then find it fitting to send a message of “DEATH” to his challengers inside the PLP. This action alone by Christie, no matter how innocent the event was, soiled the honest intent of the meeting.

      His statements coincide with the workings of a modern day HITLER, who sought to hold grip on the world and create a new world order back then. Our message though extreme, suggest that Christie’s action and statements on Grand Bahama was NO DIFFERENT! His odious remarks cannot be well received by any people who claim to have the interest in the country’s problems.

      Bahamas Press is well aware of the threats by the Christie, some of which have reached the steps of or own front door, however, we are not moved by him nor his twin Hubert Ingraham. We do not fear them like thousands in our land who know better but refuse to speak TRUTH! Nor will we join the chorus ‘Abide with ME’ now being sung by an intimidated choir. And we are encouraged to know that their time in office is not long from now. And if you speak to parliamentary members and party officers as we do, you would know that they share similar views as we do: They are concerned with the actions of its leader and his threats of hate that are spews in audiences like the one held last Sunday.

      PLPs have come on here and confirm these same threats by Christie, which were also spoken at an event in Nassau days earlier and had also been repeated on the national papers[The Nassau Guardian and the Tribune]. So what is being said here by us is not now. Perry Christie like from Prime Minister Pindling, has decided to parade his nastiness of challenging his opponents in public. He has taken his fight into the constituencies like Grand Bahama and his has noted what he intends to do with people who oppose his leadership. This is NOT democracy, this is not a spirit of LIBERTY, this is the actions of one who seeks to strangle the freedoms deep inside the PLP!

      Therefore, to Samuel Brown, Sherrelle Duncombe, Stefanie Collie, James Wildgoose, Sydney Collie, Phalicia McDonald and Mishon McDonald, let it be known that this article was not conjured by any editor of this blog. It was given to us by persons who are SENIOR MEMBERS OF THE PLP. Persons who sit deep in the belly of the organization. People who will decide the next leader of their party. And so as we said before, we have declared our interest in all this; we only ask, what are your interest in responding to our article?

  3. @white boy
    In the name of Jesus go and dont come back as my blood is boiling.And you BP take that horrible image down as it is despicable and as this jerk is showing threatens to destroy race relations in the country.White boy can I have your address so we can sit down and discuss over a beer?

  4. i have clearly have no respect for the author and publisher of this thing posted here i was apart of that panel that discussed certain issues with the leader of the party and this is ludicrous to what transpired. there were 7 young college individuals that were invited by the P.L.P Woman’s Branch of Freeport to address issues with the leader of the party because of our experience abroad, 2 students attend The College of The Bahamas and the others are abroad. we addressed issues that we thought were fitting and wanted some answers to move forward on to the next general election. this meeting was never designed as a youth forum but a woman’s branch meeting that the leader was expected to attend to have a panel discussion with us the young adults. it is far to much mislead information that is passed around the Bahamas with in the media because of stupid and illiterate individuals that tries to create havoc in the country. when is this going to stop? illustrations drawn to Adolf Hitler and the Klu Klux Klan is absolutely preposterous to what is actually going on. if only Mr. Christie ran the country like Hitler he would still be the Prime Minister of the Bahamas.

    • You must know by now AA that when you come on Bahamas Press you should declare your interest like Rodney Moncur said. You must let us know if you are a member of that Women’s Branch of the PLP in Grand Bahama. Or whether are you another one of Christie bandits who come on here to spin bile in defense of him.

      Bahamas Press has declared its interest in what we say on here. We are not PLP nor FNM. We do not support Perry Christie or Hubert Ingraham. We carry NO CARDS WHATSOEVER in their political organizations. We have never served on any board in either party. Or on any government board during their government reign. In other words BP speaks as an independent observer of modern day politics here in the country. And this is why AA Bahamians in the THOUSANDS come on here and read Bahamas Press. They know if they get nothing else, they will be delivered REAL NEWS! News with an without BIAS. Information that is not watered down. We deliver the ton of bricks and we let them fall. Whether it was Carl Bethel or Obie Wilchcombe people in the country have respect for what we report.

      We stand by our story of Christie’s THREATS to young PLPs now serving throughout his party. We stand by our account of the meeting in Grand Bahama on Sunday. Perry Gladstone Christie made THREATS LIKE HITLER DID toward the scores of young people present to seek CHANGE A IN LEADERSHIP within their party. He threaten that anyone attempting to challenge him will be destroyed! That he intends to “SHUT DOWN” whoever challenges him.

      Well AA Bahamas Press will endorse one who will challenge Perry Christie. And this is why the events on Grand Bahama interest us.

      What is your interest AA?

      Bahamas Press / Editor

      PS: We have some wonderful stories about the PLP and the Christies coming up. Fasten your seat belts get ready for the ride, this will be a rough one.

  5. I was at the meeting. For the information of all, It was a Womens Branch Meeting. Prime Minister Christie was invited others were also invited but elected not to come. The young persons invited were invited because of there International exposure they could bring a fresh point of view. No young liberal on the Island should be JEALOUS because they were not invited. They will be invited or perhaps they can plan their own Forum. As to the attempt to connect Christies remarks to the KLU KLUX KLAN all i can say is the perverse person who potrayed that point of view needs to really examine themselves. something wrong. In my opinion it was a wonderful refreshing meeting. It was such a pleasure to see the PASSION that our Young people have for the benefit of our beautiful Bahamas. I am very proud of them and I am happy they were invited to exprees themselves. Jealously and spite will get us no where.

  6. William you are the only one who read marked learned and inwarldy digest the article. Smart Boy. Those who commented was not there but if they was, then they would understand.

  7. @William
    Well William you should know this pack of writers don’t play. We chased a veteran journalist John Marquis right out of the country. So you know we gata be DANGEROUS!

    BP

  8. BP man you need another thread like this. Show was interesting and exciting. You mash plenty corns and hit plenty nerves. Maybe you will wake up some more of them and bring them back to reality!

  9. @Rad
    Amen! The only person scared is Christie! Scared he can’t say as “Prime Minister,” scared he can’t say “My government” anymore, scared he won’t get all those perks as PM, scared people won’t even listen to him much less come and visit!

  10. @WILLIAM

    I trust you saw the song I dedicated to our beloved leader.

    This is not personal – How I will vote come October is in the best interest of the party. We can’t bring any change if we remain as the opposition. All we can do is rant and rave and we don’t even have the balls to do that!

    TO Christie: “Heard it all before and you’re lies aint working now”

    As for your recent rants, ” I aint never scared”

    “I’m outside Gambier House and he thinks I’m a punk. I tell the pussy cat i aint never scared.

    As you said in the recent meeting 75% of the electorate are under 35! Well I’ll be over that -lol and I still een scared

    Am sure it was only a joke if he said it BP, even you know him better than that. I think the photo is in poor taste, not only to PC but to blacks on the hold… Knowing you am sure u can find a more appropriate photo for this piece
    EditModerateSpamDelete[Reply]

    How could this be distasteful? Do you know how many young people know this actually happened? Rupert you know you need to get out of the Tribune ya know, cause incidents like this happened. Just like incidents of bloody massacre on the day of the Burma Road Riot which was never reported in the full details!

    But it tells alot about the reader not the writer. Again we see here people hate to face TRUTH! Nothing is distasteful about this photo. It is Truth. It is FACT! It is History. All we want is to stop the leader of the PLP from reintroducing history and taking his party down that road of HATE once again!

    Bahamas Press/Editor

  12. @Rad
    I have actually seen Christie quoted in the press talking about shutting down his opponent. As far as the report, from what I gather it is alleged to have said that the PLP would win, not anything about Perry at the helm. In fact the part that he aint talking is that when asked who they thought is the strongest most competent leader they voted overwhelmingly for Hubert! What does that say, to me it says that people are upset with the FNM but they still think PC is a lousy Leader. So if Hubert makes it a leader race as opposed to party the FNM will still win. So what that says to me, Perry must go and the PLP will win on all fronts!!

  15. That’s the PROBLEM! None of you hold any postion in the rank and file. I don’t know who the hell BP is and I was at a meeting where he ranted.

    Want specifics?

    He talked about traveling to six islands in one day. Where he invited ministers to attend a funeral and no one was willing to come of the two who were invited. He then went on to say, no on can beat me if the delegates don’t know them.

    Well, several of us said while seated, we may not know the rookies who will run for leadership as well as we know him but that’s the point we know HIM.

    Want specifics?

    He opened his speech talking about the recent report that said the PLP would win if elections were called today and that’s with him as leader.

    Want specifics?

    He said we are in the fight of our lives and he himself has to start the door to door in his own constituency which he claims is the surest seat for the PLP.

    Want specifics?

    I got them because unlike BP I WAS THERE or maybe they were as I said I don’t know who the hell they are.

    It’s amazing how Bahamians are so gullable.

    I guess you guys watched the govt’s town hall meeting too and with the glaring incompetence displayed think that what Ingraham and his goons are doing for special interests groups is in the best interest of the country?

    Go ahead FNMS defend MUGABE

    Go ahead diehards defend PERRY

    We’re here saying BP is not objective and I disagree

    Over the top? YES but FACTS are FACTS

    Ever thought they get so dramatic because we are so BLIND?

  16. JR :
    Dude, you can run on all you want about the Mrs. Christie BS, only you buy that and right now, I’m not so sure even you believe that crap. Whatever. All I know is my post was clearly directed at “truth hurts” and now you are answering as if I was talking to you. Are you truth hurts, BP? You know, a lot of us were speculating that you write your own posts when it suits you and after this last one, I’m not so sure that is not true. LOL. Whatever works for you right?
    to everyone else referencing the meeting in Grand Bahama, you have to keep in mind that this report is based on a supposed conversation BP had with someone who was supposedly at the meeting. I think we’ve seen BP tangled up in a lie often enough to take these kinds of reports with a grain of salt and that means being suspicious of direct quotes. Everyone knows reporting like that would never hold up anywhere else and still, we act as if these were the words of Perry Christie and we fly off the rail behind it. Come on people, you should know when you are being played and when you’re not. This is bogus at best and I am sure that there are people reading this now who were there and know the truth about what happened in Grand Bahama but are too scared to write. I wasn’t afraid so neither should you be. What’s the worse that could happen? BP will only claim you’re also Mrs. Christie or someone else and try to scare you into not debunking his lies.
    So where is the story on how the people wanted Perry to give them 1,000 acres of Crown Land for a conch farm when they didn’t have two pennies to rub together? If you have 20 writers and four editors, surely one of you can produce that story. LOL.
    EditModerateSpamDelete[Reply]

    Trust us Mrs Christie we will be working on that story, however, in the meantime, PLEASE for GOODNESS SAKE tell your husband to STOP sending threats to persons in public meetings! The statements posted by Bahamas Press is indeed FACT! And shortly we will provide AUDIO with Christie making them.

    BP I think I know what you do, it is called shock and awe! Sometimes you have to use extreme examples to get your point across. How can a person, who is a Leader, who claims to be strong and the right man for the job openly and boldly threaten anyone to oppose him. “Shut down”, is that what hanging does, it is a metaphoric execution. What a nasty threat. You know only weak bullies threaten. A decent secure Leader in a democracy would welcome the challenge, be proud that his party is such that all men are free to run for any position.PC is desperate and will resort to any tactics to hold onto Leadership. I don’t think he would want to hang anyone, but by saying what he says and trying to block and keep young people down he is ‘hanging them’ trying to stop them by the harshest of measure just to hold on. You sure got a lot of people’s attention. Keep it up, what is needful is lawful, or desperate times call for desperate measures!!

    We wonder how can decent people sit, listen and then cheer to such rants! CHRISTIE SHOULD BE SHAME OF HIMSELF? This is worse then when Pindling put on boxing gloves attempting to start a fight on the PLP platform! This is despicable, NASTY and ‘VICKED’! And we understand from some young person, this is not the first time Christie has launched these OPEN THREATS TO DELEGATES! This man should be booked and questions for these threats!

    It’s not bellyaching and boycotting does nothing to address the bigger sin that BP threw out a very disgraceful and demeaning reference in an attempt to hurt Perry Christie and the people who support him. But that comes with the territory on this site and that is why I never buy into the pronouncements of being “free and fair” and all the other crap that BP writes because at the end of the day, only the filthiest mind could produce this filth and then try to justify it with drivel.
    To Johnny Tucker, the writers of this site are very much black and it would be the worst kind of stereotype for you to assume that for someone to post this hurtful and hateful thing, they therefore must be white. That is wrong and in this case, incorrect. Yes, it was ignorant people with evil intentions doing this but to say they can’t be black is a big mistake. Remember who sold the blacks to the white slavers? Other blacks. And it is ironic that Bahamas Press, the site that loves to call people who disagree with it “porch niggers” or “house niggers” would be the site to do this. Goes to show the true nature of the beast. LOL.
    Where is Truth Hurts on this? Gone silent eh? If this was about Mr. Coconuts or the boy with the girl’s name, you would have been all over this as if they were talking about your pa. What happened?

    No you know Mrs. Christie, we are not gone silent, but we are watching the comments on here and asking ourselves why is the PLP and its blogging community soo fixated on the BP. We say cat and they come out ‘hollerin’ calling us dog.

    We castigated Christie over the weekend on his silence over the government’s suspension of the Government Guarantee Loan for thousands of high school achievers, and the PLP had said not a word until we castigated Christie. Today every PLP in the party almost had a communication today for the media. ALMOST ONE WEEK LATER! LATE AGAIN!!!

    We say if these same deflectors who come on BP, would be responding to the WUTLESS TOILET PAPER, The Guardian and other WUTLESS MEDIA members as they do us, then the PLP will have one hell of a media operation. But see there is something about BP that ticks their nerve. They have NO control here, and to them this dangerous!

  25. tp :
    No one on this site should be supprised at anything that Bp posts.BP and black belt is the same.Remember all the filth that emanated from blackebelt ? We all know that blackbelt habours a deep hatred for both Mr Ingraham and Mr Christie for what went down with both mr Pindling and mr Everette Bannister.
    For all it is worth you have no one to blame but yourselves.When Bahamas Press first hit the scene you were all hailing him as some hero. Well his true colors are now showing.

    you took the words out of my mouth. i’ve clearly stated i didn’t agree with bahamaspress when he published some things he couldn’t back up. and you step and fetchit negroes called me all kind of names. for months now you people have been tellin bp how great he is, and how only he presented the real news and everyone else was liars and biased against the plp.

    serves you all right.

    at least i’ve had the STONES to DISAGREE with certain things he published in the past. I’m talking to you Kim Sands and Drama King and Johnny Tucker. where are you? at least I admit that the site is my guilty pleasure.

    now you talk about a boycott. talk about talking out both sides of your mouths. and to all you disingenuous hyppocrites (sp?), i bet that bp’s traffic INCREASES dramatically over the next week.

  26. JOKES… HEE HEE, boy.. i dont know what PC do you BP, but he sure gat your number lol… its so obvious that you NV this man i hope you dont loose any sleep over him, hee hee….. get over it man!

  27. BP I think I know what you do, it is called shock and awe! Sometimes you have to use extreme examples to get your point across. How can a person, who is a Leader, who claims to be strong and the right man for the job openly and boldly threaten anyone to oppose him. “Shut down”, is that what hanging does, it is a metaphoric execution. What a nasty threat. You know only weak bullies threaten. A decent secure Leader in a democracy would welcome the challenge, be proud that his party is such that all men are free to run for any position.PC is desperate and will resort to any tactics to hold onto Leadership. I don’t think he would want to hang anyone, but by saying what he says and trying to block and keep young people down he is ‘hanging them’ trying to stop them by the harshest of measure just to hold on. You sure got a lot of people’s attention. Keep it up, what is needful is lawful, or desperate times call for desperate measures!!

  28. ….And for the record, I don’t know who facilitates this website and run this online news organization. I could have gotten drunk last night and they were the paramedics who took me out of the bar on a stretcher and I wouldn’t be the wiser. Couldn’t pick them out of a line-up of one!

    Are any of you PLPs?

    Are any of you eligible voting delegates in the upcoming October convention?

    Like I tell children who claim they’re PLPs or FNMs or BDMs – they’re NOTHING until they can vote.

    I am a DELEGATE and made up my mind long before I knew BP existed how I would cast my vote and I am sure you can guess who I will NOT be voting for…!

    I was at a recent meeting (not in GB) and heard the leader firsthand issue his hollow threats and blame every one and Oprah for why we lost the election and why the PLP suffers from the AWFUL perception it does today.

    If you are old enough and are familiar with 80’s music you’ll know these lyrics

    To Christie: “Heard it all before and you’re LIES aint working now!”

  29. Today was my last on this site……My friends, family, and I have been steadily losing interest in the last few months. This site lacks creativity, obvious by the repeated slanderous and unwarranted attacks on one man, when there are so many issues out there to be discussed. This article was in poor taste. What slavery meant to blacks, and what the KKK did to blacks, and what Hitler did to Jews should never be regurgitated because of what these events represent historically. The KKKs savagery cannot be met with comparison on any level to Perry Christie. It is a shame that BP would stoop this low just to try to make a point. Bahamians deserve the facts, especially when it comes to our political choices…just look what the last election got us. Whether you want to believe it or not, PC is loved and admired by many. The next leader of the PLP will come and hopefully lead this nation back to where we’re supposed to be. In the meantime, the ‘wutless’ Bahamaian media (this site included) should get themselves together and provide the public with useful and accurate information. These writers lack integrity and are cowards. I bet none of them have the fortitude to call PC these things to his face. I say to my fellow Bahamians that stand for something, think PROGRESSIVE. We will be back and better than before, and no media outlet will change that!!!

    I’m here now . some of us have jobs you know? we don’t get to sit around the christie compound all day loungin (just joking).

    But for what its worth I totally agree that this post is over the line.

    But ya gotta admit, BP sure knows how to create a buzz doesn’t he (them)?

  31. BP am truly angry at the depiction of the KKK and PC, what’s next will we see PC as “Hitler” leading the Jews to the gas chambers. I cry shame on this, I too feel PC needs to leave however, the members of the PLP will decided on that, and hopefully the sooner the better, what troubles me most about this is that we still have people in this country that don’t see Blacks as equals, I schooled in Texas in the early 80’s and visited places were Blacks were lynched just some 30 years earlier. We simply don’t need to go down that road, I will we taking a leave of absence from this blog, I feel we are no better than the “Punch”, I’ve always maintain we should seek ideas with solution, and to forward our solutions for the betterment of this nation. We are the readers/bloggers , our fight is for fairness and decency . BP for the sake of the your readers you must retract and apologize .

  32. Why the PLP Lost the Bahamas Election

    Here’s a selection of reasons from Bahamian commentators:

    Felix Bethel (Bahama Journal): I knew (the PLP) was on a losing wicket as far back as May 3, 2002. The truth is they did not win the 2002 general election. The truth is that a tired and fractured FNM led by an exhausted Hubert Ingraham did what the tired and fractured sometimes do, which is drop the ball. The PLP lost because they refused to understand that that they did not win in May 2002.

    Nicki Kelly (the Punch): There is little doubt that the PLP was the unwitting engineer of its own defeat. (Successes) were overshadowed by an indecisive prime minister reluctant to act on critical issues, the aura of scandal and corruption surrounding a number of government ministers and backbenchers, a land policy that favoured white foreigners, and allegations of thuggery, intimidation, fraud and racism during the election campaign.

    P. Anthony White (the Punch): We must not forever tear the nation apart each time the election bill rings, setting Bahamian against Bahamian, using a wicked and wanton bait which can only incite to deep, deep hatred in the hearts of a people to whom hatred is far from native.

    Vincent Ferguson (Bahama Journal): The PLP was remiss in its duty to lay the foundation of of a true and sustained democracy. It appears they were more concerned with arrogating power to themselves for personal gain and prestige. (This comment referred to the original PLP government, but we think it is just as apt today).

    Catherine Kelly (the Punch): For once the Bahamian people walked their talk. They said the election would be close, and it was. They said they would vote for the candidate, not the leader, and they did. And they got exactly what they deserved: a balanced government.

    Craig Butler (the Nassau Guardian): The PLP didn’t have a cogent plan; the behaviour of some of the ministers and members; the PLP did a poor job with public relations; many (representatives) failed to keep in contact with their constituents; the PLP didn’t have a person to play the role of a pitbulll; the PLPs message was lost in that they appeared to be answering the FNM; and too much time and effort was spent on Brent Symnonette; Perry Christie did not lead.

    Oswald Brown (the Freeport News): Unquestionably the most unpredictable election in the history of the Bahamas. (Perry Christie) did not see anything wrong with offering several scandal-smeared candidates who, in any other democratic country, would have long ago been forced to close the book on their political careers. This was the ultimate insult to the Bahamian electorate. What kind of message was the prime minister sending to the young people of this country?

    Ian Strachan (the Nassau Guardian): (Koed) Smith invited all the nation’s bad boys to enter the welcoming arms of the compassionate, forgiving, turn-a-blind-eye, wink-wink, nudge-nudge PLP…Hubert Ingraham told his supporters to take their monety, jobs, scholarships, and still vote the PLP out.

    Nassau Guardian editorial: The people went to the polls and declared that they do in fact trust Mr Ingraham to lead the country.

    Tribune editorial: The people…are obviously tired of promises and government by committee. They are also tired of the scandals. This is the first election that we have witnesses in more than half a century that vote buying has been so public, so brazen, and with some candidates even trying to justify their insult to a people’s dignity.

    Andrew Allen (the Tribune): The biggest disappointment of the PLP government has been the seemingly lacklustre approach it has taken to matters involving the perception of corruption and scandal. Of the FNM it can be said that the the most striking strengths and weaknesses relate to the leadership style of the man at its helm.

    Adrian Gibson (the Tribune): The Bahamian people rejected Perry Christie’s government of broken promises, scandals and indisposition for one that they hope would be more productive, less ethically challenged and more decisive.

    John Marquis (the Tribune): It was no surprise that the PLP was beaten. The only surprise was that it wasn’t beaten badly. While Bahamians have moved forward into a bright new century the PLP has languished in the past, still nursing the same old prejudices, still resorting to the same thuggish tactics, and still expecting ordinary folk to bow to their might.

    Sir Arthur Foulkes (the Tribune): In spite of everything, the PLP lost the election and the biggest loser was former prime minister Perry Christie. Mr. Christie was exposed as ineffective and weak during the last five years, and now he has the distinction of having led the first one-term administration in Bahamian history. But more than that, Mr. Christie’s pretense of being a democrat was stripped away by his refusal to do anything about all the unfair practices in the election and his personal participation in the abuse of ZNS.

    John Farmer (Weblog Bahamas): In 2002, the new PLP administration started brightly, with Christie promising a code of ethics to guide his party’s conduct in office. It did not take long for the PLP to resume its original persona, with victimisation, nepotism, corruption, bribery, deceit and secretive governance the order of the day. Not to mention their abhorrent attempt to undermine the independence of the judiciary, and their attempts, once again, to usurp the will of the people at the ballot box.

  33. It’s not bellyaching and boycotting does nothing to address the bigger sin that BP threw out a very disgraceful and demeaning reference in an attempt to hurt Perry Christie and the people who support him. But that comes with the territory on this site and that is why I never buy into the pronouncements of being “free and fair” and all the other crap that BP writes because at the end of the day, only the filthiest mind could produce this filth and then try to justify it with drivel.

    To Johnny Tucker, the writers of this site are very much black and it would be the worst kind of stereotype for you to assume that for someone to post this hurtful and hateful thing, they therefore must be white. That is wrong and in this case, incorrect. Yes, it was ignorant people with evil intentions doing this but to say they can’t be black is a big mistake. Remember who sold the blacks to the white slavers? Other blacks. And it is ironic that Bahamas Press, the site that loves to call people who disagree with it “porch niggers” or “house niggers” would be the site to do this. Goes to show the true nature of the beast. LOL.

    Where is Truth Hurts on this? Gone silent eh? If this was about Mr. Coconuts or the boy with the girl’s name, you would have been all over this as if they were talking about your pa. What happened?

  34. @tp
    Now isn’t that a way to do it Tp, come on here and call for a boycott! LOL! now this is effective isn’t?

    Bahamas Press/Editor

  35. When Desmond Bannister describe the PLP as Hitler I said OK he’s FNM. But when I saw this from Bahamas Press today, I said what is being said in the PLP we are not hearing? The people are being threaten by its leader at these meetings. BOY you mean to tell me the KKK is being formed in the PLP?

    Well Muddo!

  36. BP you sure know how to rile up the masses. As much as your subscribers complain, kick up a fuss, express outrage and burn you in effigy, they come back every day anxious and eager to see what’s next!

    What does it say about the self righteous clowns who kick up dust on the playground?

    I am not making this point to support or speak against your recent post. I am merely making the point that TRUE HATE produces separation.

    Racists people live away from black and hispanics and hire their own and do their best not to run into people who are not their kind. They dont’ live in Liberty City!!!

    If BP produces such gutter trash that distrubs your sleep and sanity STAY AWAY but you can’t can you? Maybe there is a part of you that needs to be redeemed by standing on your soapboxes and condemning someone you deem worse than yourselves to vindicate the guilt in all of us.

    BP knows how to start a riot but I often find the follow up posts more entertaining. So BP forget that suggestion made earlier about credting yourself for outdoing the Punch. Don’t pat yourself on the back so quickly you have a DAMN LONG WAY to go to out do the other clowns -lol.

  37. THIS IS SHAMEFUL AND A BLATENT DISGRACE TO WHAT OUR FOREFATHERS FOUGHT FOR… BP PROBABLY HAS SOME INTEREST TO INHERIT IF CHRISTIE IS GONE. I THROW MY SUPPORT BEHIND CHRISTIE ON THIS ONE SIMPLY ON THE BASIS OF SYMPATHY. HE DON’T DESERVE THIS.

    I GO ON THE LIMB TO SAY THE EDITORS OF BP CANNOT BE BLACK PEOPLE IT IS SIMPLY IMPOSSIBLE!!!!
    THIS POSTING DEFIES INTELLECTUALISM AND DOES NOT CRYSTALLIZE THE BEST IDEAS FROM BAHAMIANS. IT IS IMMATURE, DISTASTEFUL AND STUPID!!!

  38. @media

    Media: The Wutless PRINT Media in Bahamas don’t throw away all there papers because something was incorrectly published. The broadcast media don’t go off air when they say something wrong. And Bahamas Press will not delete anything we say, unless there is IRREFUTABLE EVIDENCE that suggests otherwise. So it is what it is Altec.

    BP, the Wutless media, as wutless as they are, will never cross the line like you did in this post. There is no excuse for what you posted. You went over board and over reached and you know it.

    Please tell me how you came to the conclusion that by PC saying anyone who challenges him will be “shut down” to be KKK and Hitler like? This is so you to totally overreact, mis characterize and embellish things. I mean in the 2007 general election campaigns, things were said that were way worse than that.

    Secondly, from the quotes from your source, it seems to me that it is you and your source who are trying to charactering PC speech as a “message of death.” There was nothing out of bounds with what he said at all. You guys are faking outrage and trying to stir something up with these over the top, embellished, bedtime stories about PC!

    .

    Media: But as we said in our opening post, the PLP organization is now being fast tracked as a model of the Ku Klux Klan as its leader cries “DEATH” to his opponents.

    .
    You have surmised that the PLP a 50 yr old political organization, is being transformed into a KKK style organization on the bases of one speech PC gave in GB? BP you are a joke!

    Thirdly, where is your evidence, other than one speech where you got the details second hand, that the PLP organization is being “fast track as a model of the Ku Klux Klan” by PC?

    To make a claim like that you must have more than a speech because if true then that alone would ensure defeat for PC at convention and for sure in 2012 for the PLP. So reveal your evidence of this so you can be rid of PC. Oh, thats right, you have none because you know you are stretching the facts regarding the meeting in GB.

    This post is JUNK!

    Why didnt you or your source have this meeting recorded and posted so we can make up our own minds as to what went on? Or maybe you did record it hoping something “juicy” would happen but nothing did, so you and your source has to resort to making up stuff to make PC look bad.

    BP, you have sunk to a new low!

  39. You are so full of filth that you couldn’t even write a sentence about civil discourse and not using profanity without using profanity yourself. What a crock. Your response on its own makes no sense and has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that you crossed a line that is hard to cross back over. And for what? Because you felt the need to attack Perry Christie and his supporters by throwing the most offensive thing you could find out there. Wow.

    The irrefutable evidence, you pocket pseudo intellectual is contained in the posts prior to your own. Readers are telling you that they find this post and the image you chose extremely offensive and yet you run on with more drivel about not apologizing. There is nothing to refute boys, its about having taste and you have none. Wow. I am in shock still that supposedly grown people could be so clueless and obtuse about something so obvious. But thats BP for you. LOL. 4 editors and 20 field writers eh? In your dreams.

  40. Altec :
    BAHAMAS PRESS i am sooo disappointed in you right now!
    How dare you compare a former Bahamian PM leadership style and the PLP party to the KLU KLUX KLAN and HITLER?
    This is slander.
    You crossed the line buddy. This drive by attack on PC and the party is lower than low. This is lower than THE PUNCH. Your hatred for PC has cloudy your political judgment and this post has seriously impugned your credibility.
    My friend, check ya sef!
    YOU NEED TO RENAME AND REMOVE THE REFERENCES TO THE KKK AND HITLER OR DELETE THIS POST.
    EditModerateSpamDelete[Reply]

    Altec you must remember not every criticism levied against us is necessarily accepted as criticism, but confirmation to what we say. Our editorial hierarchy of four are the ONLY persons with editorial power to have articles removed off this site and we constantly consult each other on material.

    Bloggers on the other hand have sway, INFLUENCE in determining by pressure what stays or what is presented. And you have the freedom like no place else, to CUSS and harass us as much as you wish! We only ask you to present a civil discourse without profanity!

    Our 20 plus field writers also have an influence to present what they deem as information needed to be presented to the world. So I say this Altec, we hear you, but nothing posted on Christie today and in the days to come will be removed.

    The Wutless PRINT Media in Bahamas don’t throw away all there papers because something was incorrectly published. The broadcast media don’t go off air when they say something wrong. And Bahamas Press will not delete anything we say, unless there is IRREFUTABLE EVIDENCE that suggests otherwise. So it is what it is Altec.

  44. Just when you think BP can’t sink any lower, they go and do their best to prove everybody wrong. The Punch has lost their crown when it comes to Smut reporting.

  45. i’m not co-signing anybody else’s comment or point of view, but i think it is out of line to compare perry christie to the klu klux klan.

  46. @JR
    My sentiments exactly. The Ku Klux Klan and their series of lynchings, hangings, burning crosses, and outright torture of blacks represent a painful part of history that no one should just throw around, no matter the context. To compare Christie’s tactics to the KKKs shows such ignorance. It doesn’t add anything to the argument except for the known fact that BP has disdain for PC.

  47. You should be ashamed of yourself for this reference. You condemn Desmond Bannister for his Hitler remark but now you come back and do him one better, with the picture to match. BP, this is really offensive man, i really don’t what else to call it. I guess desperation will do that. I hope the other readers, including Canesfins, condemn you for this one. Wow. I have to hang my head down on this one.
