‘God has to come from heaven and tell me VIP not behind attack on my wife’

Myron Walwyn

Despite Chairman of the Virgin Islands Party (VIP) Andrew Fahie’s quick denunciation of a social media attack on the wife of the National Democratic Party leader Myron Walwyn, it appears that Walwyn is not buying into it.

Addressing the issue in Road Town Saturday night, Walwyn said he believes the VIP is behind the attack.

“The Lord will have to come down from heaven to tell me that it was not the VIP and their operatives who initiated that attack on my wife. That has been the nature of their campaign from day one,” Walwyn said.

“In the Christian spirit, I will forgive. But, I also know that this coming week will be a desperate week for many and we should all be watchful. I am a man who is not afraid to say that I would be nothing without my wife, Judith. While I made a decision to serve my country, she has been keeping our businesses afloat, and she has been keeping our home in order, and I thank her every day for what she does.”

Apologies

Walwyn said while there are some apologies coming out of the VIP camp that he believes to be sincere, he said some VIP supporters are now expressing concerns “over the changing face of H Lavity Stoutt’s party (the VIP) under its current leadership”.

“Some people realised that they went a bit too far, showing their xenophobic hand given the dislike for hospitality workers and women, and now we see denunciations springing up left, right, and centre.”

Walwyn said the VIP’s campaign reached an all-time ‘low’. He further said they crossed the ‘boundary of decency’.

“My wife is not involved in any way in politics, and there is absolutely no reason to target her in this disgraceful campaign of filth. There is a cardinal rule in politics which we in the Virgin Islands have always respected. It is that while a politician may criticise an opponent, their spouses and children are off limits.”

He added: “Those that have been sending out those nasty memes cannot hold a candle to Judith.”

Following the malicious meme, Fahie denounced the attack saying that he is personally aware of how one’s family members can suffer from such attacks.

      Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

    Myron, stop playing politics with this situation. You are smarter than this. You know exactly well that there is a difference between political parties, their supporters, people that are just against you and people that are against your party. There are memes that are favorable for all parties except PU from what I have seen so far and at no time did I stop and think that NDP, VIP or PVIM party is behind these memes. You would have to be shallow or naïve to think that Fahie, Ronnie, Carvin, Mitch or even Marlon and yourself because there are pro NDP memes as well etc are creating these memes and videos. These comments by Myron is following a familiar narrative that he has always tried to make this election a VIP vs NDP election. He has said a few times that people are telling him the fight is between both parties now he is conveniently singling out VIP even though there is no evidence to suggest that the meme is a pro VIP meme. The meme even praised Ronnie and Fraser’s wife as well but somehow the meme is a VIP meme. If this is the only way to discredit who you think is your main opposition it is despicable. Myron is smarter than this that’s why I know this is all strategic on his part to draw outrage from his supporters and people that do not support the message being sent in the meme. This is no better than people that blame NDP for the destruction caused by Irma and every time a murder is committed.

    We need constitutional reform in this territory. For too many expats has gain Belonger’s status. We need to only allow indigenous Virgin Islanders to vote and ban anyone who got belongers through marriage, residency or non indigenous born-heres from voting. They should be giving a form of limited citizenship (restrict them to residency status that expires any one month stay outside the country or something). We must not give them full status if they are not indigenous.

    Members of parliament should also be ban if their hold any other nationality but Virgin Islander (and be indigenous, not just be a Virgin Islander but can trace their ancestry all the way back to the slave ships that landed here).

    Walwyn may have been born in the BVI, but he is not indigenous nor is his wife or children. Non of them should be giving the right to be in our house of assembly nor be allowed to vote.

      You have been miss-educated along with others to believe that you are an indigenous Virgin Islander.

      Understand what that word means.

      Black people are not indigenous to these islands. It’s a lie from the pit of hell and is being used by those whose goal it is to sow seeds of division among the populace.

      It’s also widely referenced on one news website which show their level of ignorance that is unfortunately being bought by some gullible people hook, line, and sinker.

      A lot of you have been fed this lie, and you need to understand your history as black people. If you do not know where you came from, you will not know where you are going.

      February being Black History month, is a fitting time to understand your history.

      Start educating yourself on what indigenous people means. Once you do, you may have a different view on things:

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indigenous_peoples

      I don’t know what they are teaching in BVI schools whereby people can walk around saying this nonsense.

      Educate yourself. The internet is more than Face Book, Twitter, or WhatsApp. Is wonderful tool for learning. Enrich your mind, and stop repeating silly and categorically false things.

      Now, I expect that many of you who have been miss-educated on this issue will defend this lie, but let me say in advance, they are just fooling themselves.

      What you should be saying is that you are either a BVI Islander, BVI Belonger, or local, but only if you were the very first set of people originating from these islands can you claim this indigenous title.

      ….and if there is one indigenous BVI Islander living today, I will like to meet him/her. If there is one dead and buried somewhere, I will like to visit their grave. And if you are indeed an indigenous Virgin Islander, I will like to meet you personally.

        I is a Indigenous Virgin Islander,

        The constitution defines who we are. But in my opinion it should not be just tracing back ones ancestry to one grandparent who was born in the BVI. It should read who trace their ancestry right back to the slave ships.

        The meaning of words may shift, be added upon, minus upon or completely disappear in any giving language with the passage of time. The ‘offcialness’* would be added to a phrase or word more especially when it is endorse in an official document, such as the BVI constitution.

        The term Indigenous Virgin Islander is use to more easily categorize people. The word indigenous is use/burrowed/manipulated/reinvented to define a certain category of Virgin Islanders. These things happen in any given language.

        So there we have it, the term Indigenous Virgin Islander officially exist. Amerindians no, but mostly Africans with ancestors through connection here, a relatively new term.

        Thank You.

          Again, I respectfully disagree with you. Please research the meaning of indigenous peoples for your own knowledge. Start with that Wikipedia link I posted.

          There is no way you can feel this way if you truly understand what the word indigenous peoples mean.

          If you are a black person as I assume you are, there is no way you are indigenous to these islands.

          There are a bunch of obese people walking around stating they are “big boned” as much as there are black women walking around with blond wigs thinking they are not black, but the truth is otherwise.

          And by the way, not to be a syntax police as we all make mistakes when writing:

          That line should be: I AM an Indigenous Virgin Islander, as oppose to “I is a Indigenous Virgin Islander”

          At any rate, I could not find anywhere in the constitution you referenced about indigenous BVI Islander.

          If I missed something, please cite exactly where you found that entry.

            It is sooo interesting that many people come to the VI to exploit the nation for the love of the American $$ and these very people have the audacity to get on these blogs proclaiming what we Virgin Islanders are and are not in our own nation. Why?? Because they can’t get what they want in another man’s country? ‘What a great wickedness!

            What is your status in your country? How many wars did your people have to fight and how many persons did their ancestors kill to make them a permanent resident in the land that you refuse to return home too? We Virgin Islanders are indigenous to these lands, and have been as the European settlers killed out the first settlers, ‘like it or not that is how it is!!!’ Don’t be jealous of your neighbors and their children’s blessings people. Our ancestors were blessed by God because of the evils that was done to them and that blessing was passed on to us, their children.

            I know a lot of persons that are residing in the territory do not believe in God, but don’t test Him! You’ll better remember and remember well that who God blesses no one curses!!!’

  20. Political Observer (PO) says:

    It is an unwritten rule, a gentlemen and ladies and agreement, in the universe of politics that families are off limit when a close family member enters the world of politics. For the most part that agreement is adhered to. Nonetheless, when a close family member enters the world of politics, the whole family enters the world of politics. This is an expectation that a politician should be aware of when he/she enters politics.

    For example, former First Lady of US Michelle Obama came under withering fire from the opposition, ie, an ape in heels……….etc; the children were left alone. If the family structure cannot withstand the scrunity, perhaps one should sit on the sideline. If a family member is active behind the scene or is active in the public domain, he/she is fair game for scrunity.

    Moreover, in most campaigns, there will be supporters who will go rogue and off the rails doing things that are not consistent with the party leader, party or individual members platform/position. In this instance, the Hon Andrew Fahie, D-1 Rep and Leader of VIP, demonstrated priniciple and strong leadership in denouncing any negative focus on the Hon Walwyn (At Large) spouse. Nonetheless, instead of supporting Hon Fahie’s call for putting families off limit, the Hon Walwyn is overdramatizing and exploiting the issue for political gain. The Hon Walwyn seems to want to fan the flames. It is Trumpish to all always want a fight whether or not one can win the discussion. This despicable behavior is dog whistling to the hilt. God go answers prayer so he may indeed answer this prayer. But he is without sin cast the first stone.

    Moreover, this is one of the most critical times and challenging periods for the territory since perhaps Emancipation on 01 August 1834. This is a critical election to address the myriad of issues from the economy to infrastructure to health to education to public safety to the environment and on and on.

    Furthermore, candidates should be focusing on substantive issues that will improved the lives of residents and advanced the status/state of the territory, not fan the flame of divisiveness, hatred and distractions from the issues that are important to people. There are no Pilates here. Everyone needs to grow up and act like mature adults who are vying to lead this territory for the next four years. Can we just for the most part disqualify the whole guava crop and start over. Ok that is wishful thinking.

      The majority of BVI people don’t have problems with people from other islands. It’s actually the other way around for all kinds of crazy reasons and misconceptions. BVI has been good to people from other islands hence the reason why they stay and more keep coming. A few bloggers don’t speak for the entire BVI and it’s unfortunate that some politicians are capitalizing on this for votes. Ain’t nothing that going on here that foreigners in other Caribbean countries don’t have to deal with. Actually it’s worst in some countries in terms of ensuring their locals are protected.
