Mark Zuckerberg flips bird at Freundel Stuart? Facebook refuses to squeal on 3 personalities – who were they?
“If a regime cannot take a joke, then it has no right calling itself a regime!” Jon Stewart
Is it so much of a surprise when Facebook, the currently global ruling Social Media engine (not so long ago it was Hi5 then MySpace, now Facebook shares cyberspace with mini-blogging venue Twitter), was approached by apparently the current regime of Barbados to ascertain the identity of 3 individuals or groups… Was Barbados surprised when Mark Zuckerberg’s internet gathering spot essentially told them “F**k off!“? We all know Barbadian Press Freedom will evaporate if we’re not careful, this latest incident is one of many, this is why neither side likes my website since I am open about the foibles of Bees & DEM’s alike! What editor can they call to shut me up?
What is more intriguing is not really the request, which clearly impinges on both Human Rights and Press Freedom, but who were the trio? Bajan Reporter has some suspects who may or may not fit the bill… Let’s rule me out, Fumble & Unclear are looking for unknown or hidden or veiled users, I have 2 accounts one for diplomats and the older business community and another where I let my hair down, so to speak… Yet in neither do I hide my name, so while I p*ss off both Gov’t & Opposition? I am a known quantum.
The requests were made in the last 6 months, which means certain folk who hide their identity got under the DEM’s skin during or since Elections – how about the group known as Bajan Poppets, who delivered some killer video doozies before and after Elections? There was the joke on Mangrove Pond Landfill, which went viral on the Bajan side of Facebook in the lead-up to Voting!
The real video which drew thousands of hits was sampling Ronald “UWI” Jones‘ tirade when he made a horrific outburst in Parliament more suited from the late Ugandan despot Idi Amin, where Jones implied if people dare to complain then they should be considered insurrectionists and have their heads cracked or worse, get shot? The diatribe was punished with laughter as a Crop Over calypso parody! I can see the current Bay Street posse eagerly demanding Bajan Poppets‘ true identity!
Another potential suspect in the identity ring is a bit more clear than Unclear, there is a character who openly brags of being a Bee and cleaving to Owen Arthur, this is Bajan Bloggs – when he isn’t praising Roebuck Street and its (sic) virtues, he’s changed tune since Mia is back, I believe? He looks at his drinking prowess (which he claims is of Asgardian proportions) or who is doing what sexually across the island, when the coup of October 2010 was in full bloom, he told me stop singing Mia’s praises – or else! Here’s a screenshot…
I had done some digging, and unlike Fumble and his lot in how they fared with Facebook, I learned Bajan Bloggs’ real name may be Elvis Barker, he’s also known as “Gold Teeth” and he sells car parts when not on Facebook irritating Bajans with purported alcoholic feats, regaling tales of quasi-porn on women who refuse to give him their cell numbers or spouting political yardfowlisms… If his name is indeed Elvis Barker, then he may well be related to Tyrone Barker (there’s a definite resemblance), which makes sense since Tyrone also tends to view Arthur like sliced bread?
I recall how annoyed Bloggs was when it seemed I was very close on his alter ego, and demanded I swear fealty to him, again here’s a screenshot;-
Another prime suspect is FireFreundel, their campaign was almost like advertising and I am sure made the DEM’s see red which probably suited them just fine, LOL! Their videos with animation were worthy of any US cartoonist but are now removed – along with the Youtube channel and Facebook page…
But when they used my photos without permission, I took a screenshot as proof, but since a delegate from that group since spoke to me I dropped any proceedings against the true user. As I originally stated, these are only suspicions on my part, there’s no confirmation if these were the 3 which this Government is after, but regardless of who it is? This is very sad, as Jon Stewart said while in Cairo… If you have a Government and you are vex because of a joke? Then you have no right to power, because when has a joke toppled an empire? The dictators usually do it themselves!
