Dear Editor,
Irresponsible enablers let “Trump be Trump” and as such, allowed pro-Trumpers on Wednesday, January 6, 2021 to manifest itself as one of America’s darkest days of revenge, repentance and re-understanding. America and the world were horrified, apoplectic and concerned about the deadly, catastrophic and dangerous effects of the cowardly and disastrous attack on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. As a result, five people died, many were injured including people and the Police, there was a compensation and wreckage trail and now, killings, arrests and prosecutions. As the attack took place after being prompted by a touching speech by President Trump, he returned to security in the White House to the warmth and comfort of his family and colleagues.
He did not mind that he endangered the lives of members of the House and Parliament as they tirelessly and fearlessly performed their national duties to carry out the nation’s work. He was unaware of the nation’s security as people and law officials were exposed to death at the hands of a frenzied crowd, encouraged and influenced by his words, deeds and actions. He watched with amusement and satisfaction with his handiwork, as a nation was hot on fire on a cold day.
Was the Guyanese President Granger allowed during his time, to be Granger, or was he a jumping puppet, dancing to the tune of a rogue gang? His position in the party was hand-picked and his presidential candidacy was also secured through strategic manipulations. Did he achieve any autonomy or were his decisions and announcements a transfer of a relay by a determined body and not his own?
Only on a few hand-selected occasions did the media always face, and he avoided questions with “I said what I said,” for an answer and came out quickly after his brief appearances. The stray and furious media activists were always kept in the bay by his watchdogs. Most of the times he was kept out of sight and his lieutenants were the serving force, ready, willing and able to prevent him from taking any initiative and carrying on the business of the nation. The result of his leaving his office would reveal that he was unaware (commendable) of what was happening pervasively, and if he knew, then, he had no choice but to flow with the tide.
Claiming to be a self-righteous and religious person, he would have condemned all those corruption that his Ministry was responsible for, rather than condoning them in collusion. Perhaps, he could have stamped his authority and put his foot down (not in his mouth,) and prevented any malice. Being a spiritual servant of the Lord who loved to kneel and bow in the church, not to repent or confess but to sing His praise and bequest His guidance to do just the right thing for the people and the people people were his lies (Granger), the fraud and dishonesty of his own making or the instruction of the APNU / AFC dictators? One of the Lord’s obedient devotees will not commit any sin, he will do no wrong and only speak the truth.
Whatever Granger did, he would have had to seek the Lord’s permission or Satan’s blessings? Was Granger operating (?) Under duress as he undermined the nation in siege during the election period in March 2020, or, was he committing a disgraceful act when the APNU / AFC held Guyanese at ransom and refused to abide the No Confidence Offer (NCM) back in December 2018? Did he not pick his conscience when he took office, he immediately approved unreasonable wages for his boys and girls despite the fact that the rest of the nation obeyed and anxiously remained in custody?
Perhaps, he became a devil’s advocate and was hypnotized to perform at the masquerading will of an evil force like APNU / AFC! Was the sacred Granger in favor of the abuse and harassment of foreign dignitaries as they observed the election deservedly and peacefully, or, was it a man of violence and passion who instituted the blasphemous behavior of lawless party members?
Was he a believer swearing by the Book of God to petition all those lawsuits all the way to the CCJ, or, was he an illegitimate worshiper who recommended traveling the path of sinners? Was the virtuous Granger in his right frame of mind when he summoned the wrath of the Berbs by denying racial incitement and creating chaos as a result, or, was it a malefactor who preached immorality to commit violence and caucus directly? Granger is no longer a decorated soldier with honor and courage, but, a depressed sailor sailing at sea without paddling and an uncontrollable canoe in the middle of a turbulent ocean.
Is Granger not the brash and brass controller to face the bullets at the front line steering, or is he the weak and gentle to pelt a brick in the dark and then hide behind security enclosed walls and defense? He always deviated from his promised duty to uphold the law and protect the people of this nation.
His reprimands were recklessness and lack of heart, use and abuse of power, disrespect of the Constitution and the court, ethnic and racial division, victimization and discrimination and disregard of rules and regulations and disregard of law and order. As such, Trump and Granger became a platform for compassion, losing touch of reality and expelling themselves in a wild and horrific ideology that represents questionable holiness, critical incapacity and selfish leadership. Former US White House Chief of Staff John Kelly said, “he (Trump) is a laughing stock and you need to control him … you don’t survive by telling him the truth.” The truth hurts where it hurts the most and Trump and Granger find the inconvenience of truth unacceptable and uncomfortable because they can’t handle the truth. It is atypical of them and does not in their mantra speak or uphold the truth. Trump and Granger have become spectacular international figures for the world to cheer on, ridicule and laugh at. They both can never look square to eye without feeling guilty.

Jai Lall
