Tyranny rears it's ugly head

Daniel Carbon

"Um eine Nation zu erobern , zunächst entwaffnen seine Bürger"

This quote, attributed to Adolph Hitler, translates to "To conquer a nation, first disarm its citizens". Today in Dominica, we have an administration that appears to be on track to replicate the worst abuses of tyrannical regimes.

The Roosevelt Skerrit government is in the process of targeting specific detractors in Dominica. Not satisfied with his ongoing wholesale abuse of segments of our society, Mr. Skerrit appears to have given the green light to his goon squad commander Daniel Carbon the authority to systematically target his opponents in the hopes that they will be silenced in the process. Mr. Carbon is said to have in his possession a list of prominent persons in our society who are licensed firearm holders and has begun to unilaterally revoke the licenses without cause. Mr. Skerrit and Mr. Carbon are on a mission to expose these individuals to conditions that could be described as life-threatening.

The first target on this list is former Police Officer Wayne James. Mr. James, a well-trained and distinguished former member of the Commonwealth of Dominica Police Force (CDPF), is a critic of Mr. Skerrit's government. Mr. James has on a number of occasions expressed his displeasure with the manner in which Mr. Skerrit and his government continues to abuse the citizens of Dominica. Mr. James has also advised Mr. Carbon as well as current Police Officers that their duty and loyalty lie with the people of Dominica, not its politicians.

Mr. Skerrit has deemed Mr. James a threat to his government. Mr. James, who is a family man with a wife and daughter, lives and owns a business that is located in a remote area in the heartland. As a former Police Officer and currently an entrepreneur, Mr. James being in possession of a firearm is critical to the security of his family and his business. Without any cause, and against the rules which lay out the procedure that must be followed when relieving a licensed firearm holder of his weapon, Mr. Carbon has written a letter to Mr. James informing him that his license has been revoked. The letter was hand-delivered by 2 Police Officers, who confiscated Mr. James' firearm immediately.

Two days after the unlawful seizure of Mr. James' firearm, his home was burglarized and ransacked. Mr. James has never experienced a burglary before and we believe that the thieves knew that Mr. James would be incapable of defending his life and property. His family is on edge and are in fear for their lives.

We can safely say that Roosevelt Skerrit and Daniel Carbon are facilitators of crime in Dominica. But that should be of no surprise to anyone. We must remember that Mr. Skerrit is a coward and his perceived strength only exists because he governs a population that appears to cowed. Dominicans have allowed Mr. Skerrit to get away with his shenanigans for far too long. We cannot continue to allow this degree of brutality to be visited upon us.

Mr. Skerrit is also a man living in fear. He knows that his days fleecing the treasury are nearing an end. We Dominicans must understand that Mr. Skerrit will do whatever it takes for him to remain in power. This is why Mr. Skerrit will employ the likes of Daniel Carbon and Anthony Astaphan to do his dirty work; Mr. Carbon is the enforcer and Mr. Astaphan is the propaganda chief; the Heinrich Himmler and Josef Goebbles of Mr. Skerrit's criminal enterprise. Mr. Astaphan has conveniently parked himself in an upscale South Florida enclave and proceeds to spew venom at Dominicans back home. He has called us parasites, cockroaches, kakadors, among others. Anthony Astaphan is an existential threat to our democracy. We must do something about this; our lives, dignity, and our very existence are at stake.

  • First they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.
  • Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.
  • Then they came for the Trade Unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a Trade Unionist.
  • Then they came for me and by then there was no one left to speak out for me.
