Loathe, or love them: The progressive intelligentsia killed the TWP caucus politics

    The Editor, Liberia’s forward march to Democratic Governance, and total independence has been a herculean, and gigantic uphill task from the era of 1816, and up to the present. To reach the level we are currently; though not where we ought to be, it took the sweat, blood, tears, and precious lives of thousands of our kiths, kins, and compatriots who struggled unceasingly in the vanguard of political turmoil; stood unwavering test of time, amid insurmountable challenges, and including incessant wars, famine, and slavery, amongst other hostilities. At…

Folks, listen to Head of State Samuel Kanyon Doe’s definitions of Communism: “In Communist country the women cannot get marry and the men cannot get marry. Any man can take any woman and do anything he wants to do with her”. S. Kanyon Doe said vociferously. Do you want Communism? the Chiefs thundered “No”!. S. Kanyon Doe said in Communist country if you make your farm and harvest 50 bags of rice, the communist government will seize 49 bags and give you 1 bag. Finally, S. Kanyon Doe told the chiefs that “in a communism country nobody has a house. People can sleep in any house they see”. He asked do you want Communism? Finally, the chiefs replied “No”. Op-ed 

Samuel Doe used ‘communism,’ to lie on progressive leaders

    “NOBODY WILL MARRY…NOBODY WILL OWN A HOUSE”   The Editor, I referenced a book written by former Liberian Interim President Dr. Amos Sawyer. In the publication, professor Sawyer said Liberia had a dictatorship ( 1980-1986). But one fellow who goes by the name of Edward Farley said that President Samuel Kanyon Doe was not a dictator before until “certain people” tutored Samuel Kanyon Doe with communist concepts. Mr. Farley’s “certain people” is an apparent reference to Dr. Sawyer and his colleagues of the Movement for Justice in Africa…

They have not changed! They will not change!! The people know them and thus their frustration is increased because they know that these men are searching for profit in rivers of blood and piles of skulls. They understand that these men, no matter whom they serve, are nothing but vultures, eager to pick at the empty carcass of the nation. These men do not have any social conscience; they do not have any loyalty to the people or to the nation, and like their counterparts in the past history of our Republic, they are willing and ready to trade the flag and our national heritage.

The historical revisionists Vs. the progressive class

    The Editor,   The historical revisionists, many of whom are remnants of the outmoded, True Whig Party oligarchy think they have succeeded in laying blame on those we call the “Progressives” of Liberia. We often hear them say, Liberia was OK until April 14, 1979 when PAL and MOJA called for a rice riot. But what these right-wing reactionaries deliberately failed to tell our people is that April 14, 1979 was a necessity that happened through accident. Suffice this to mean that April 14, 1979 happened not because…

The Progressive class in Liberia shall rise again!

  By Dennis Jah   Ask me about the thing that drives everything that I do or say and I will be frank with you, that it is my faith is strong. Having been through many ups and downs and survived the barbaric Liberian civil war, it is this resolve that worked wonders for me yesterday and can do the same again and again. This has been my strength, my coping strategy, my survival technique, and defense mechanism often: exhaled in a song I learned in Sunday school years back.…

I honor the progressive class of Liberia

Legions of my homeland, Liberia.     The Editor,   Today, with deep conscience, I honor the progressive class of Liberia. Only people with barren sense of history or possessed by historical prejudices will not appreciate the profound depth of contribution made by these great legions of the homeland. Like all of us, mortal beings, they are not free of faults and filths, but their contribution to the homeland cannot be ranked any less, it remains outstanding and indelible. To those of you who throw tantrums and diatribes at the…
