Coded Messages| Divisive Tribal Political Messages of Distrust


“You risk paying a price,” he said. “People are better informed today than they were ten years ago. You can’t fool them with stupidness anymore.” Dumas criticised Manning’s campaign saying it was unacceptable given the office Manning held. 
He accused the PNM of promoting racism, sexism and discrimination on the basis of religion through coded messages in the then Prime Minister’s many speeches. He said, instead Manning and the PNM should have focussed on issues.
“Manning conspicuously failed to understand that,” he said. “He was making coded messages which had to do with race and religion and also gender and which were divisive racially from the first meeting in St Augustine when he made the remark about puncheon and what the (Indian-dominated) UNC was drinking. What he didn’t understand is that a lot of people have moved on and he did not grasp that,

Isn't it amazing that until now the PNM faithful did not recognize this fact or chose not to address it. Mr. Dumas rightly noted that: “He was making coded messages which had to do with race and religion and also gender and which were divisive racially from the first meeting in St Augustine when he made the remark about puncheon and what the (Indian-dominated) UNC was drinking. What he didn’t understand is that a lot of people have moved on and he did not grasp that."
Everyone was caught up with the tertiary education talk that nothing else mattered. The sea of PNM red meant that PNM forever was a done deal and everyone turned a blind eye to the ills on the platform much less for the veiled messages that were meant to capatalize on the politics of race.
Patrick was cast out with scorn and comtempt by the very persons who cowered at his feet. He is now a beaten man who will sit back and watch his nemesis, Dr. Keith Rowley take control of the PNM political machine. No Wajang behavior now since "the PNM till ah dead faithful" feel that there is reason to celebrate even in defeat - Patos is gone and Rowley rises from the ashes of wajangism.
