Another letter to the editor

LaVerne Furbert must have incomprehensible amounts of free time on her hands as she is constantly featured in both paper’s letter to the editor sections.

Unfortunately, she is published so frequently that her views grow tiring because they always follow along the same predictable lines where you don’t need to read her piece in order to know what she’s going to say.

It leaves one to wonder why the editors continue to publish her with such frequency. It has become so bad that anytime I find myself reading the letters to the editor and come across a long winded one, I instantly skip to the bottom to see if LaVerne Furbert wrote it. If so, it’s likely I won’t even bother reading it.

This has me wondering, does anyone take the time to read her pieces anymore or does she write in so often saying primarily the exact same thing that she’s turned the majority of people off from wanting to know what she has to say?

I always read Laverne’s letters as they are the most remarkable display of wingnuttery. She will be a loyal propagandist to the end.

Denis you crack me up. I thought it was just me.
Some are pretty entertaining. The irony of her criticism that Renee Webb travels too much while the Ewart Brown is in China vowing to open a tourism office there was priceless.

dennis “LaVerne Furbert must have incomprehensible amounts of free time on her hands as she is constantly featured in both paper’s letter to the editor sections.” considering dunleavy used to post almost daily saying pretty much the same thing but from the other pov – would you not say the same about him – or are his post more about “tolerance “. obviously ms. furbert is my mother so i am biased – but considering the negative stats on young blk men in bda during the 80s and 90s – that as a single black mother who was outspoken against… Read more »

Chapman,
Ironic that you find Denis’ ‘disrespect’ for your mother sad. Quite honestly, respect must be earned, and your mother shows rank disrespect for the Bermuda public every time she opens her mouth or puts crayon to paper to indulge in another racist, nonsensical and hateful diatribe. Also, it’s interesting how neither you nor your mother think anything of indulging in political tactics for which you criticize others.

I was waiting to allow Denis to respond, but ok… I’m not into being unfairly referencing people’s family, but Vanz, what you are doing comes off like a simpleminded ploy and yet another one of your trademark misdirections (perhaps unintentionally, perhaps not). Anyone commenting as consistently as your mother has to expect (and be ok with) criticism if those comments, particularly when they include personal and racial attacks. End of story. Was it also evidence of a “mean streak” when Ms. Furbert identified the names, workplace, and daycare of Phil Wells’ wife and newborn son in the Worker’s Voice, a… Read more »

No need for “bill” to do it. You’ve done a pretty good job of burning a lot of bridges.
Anyway I have better things to do. See you on the 18th.

Vanz, I said nothing about the capability or character of your mother and certainly did not mean disrespect with regards to her contributions to the community nor her capacity as a mother. How you could imply such simply from my questions of whether her writing has become disappointing? I simply suggest that she writes in so frequently and so often along the same lines that what she says has largely become predictable. There’s a saying I’ve coined out of what I’ve learned from writing this blog: Speak to be heard, not to hear yourself speak. What is the point of… Read more »

so who do u think reads and agrees w/ politics.bm – and silence pls next time you’re in toronto – look me up so you can see how much i’m “scarred you for life” – but i must say that i find it funny that when a blk person calls out racism it’s because they’re (scarred – a wing nut etc.) – if i’m scarred – then god christian must be a walking keloid – the sad truth is that both sides in bda preach to the converted – maxwell burgess, jahmall, gwyn, even julian hall are ex blk ubpers… Read more »

Once again, ‘Stalker Vanz’ does what he so predictably does when someone on regressiveminds puts up a decent challeng to him: resorts to the old, and terribly tired refuge of passive-aggressiveness. Take a look at how many times he pulls out thus schtick: “Yes, u r right. I am wrong……” So, so predictable and intellectually dishonest. The hate and bile that spills out of your mother has obviously filtered down to you. Hope you’re not planning on exercising your fraudulently-acquired voter registration BTW.

“Was it also evidence of a “mean streak” when Ms. Furbert identified the names, workplace, and daycare of Phil Wells’ wife and newborn son in the Worker’s Voice, a letter to the editor, and a post to his blog along with thinly veiled threats if he didn’t shut up?” You still haven’t answered this, Vanz. I take it that, like your mother, you think that such disgusting tactics are fine so long as they’re directed towards white guys. Interesting……….. Oh, and the lady that your mother put up at her house while she worked for ‘Addiction Services”: was she one… Read more »

oh bill b – i feel the heat from that warm crackling cross all the way up here in toronto – just so u know, my wife is caucasian and she gets a kick outta reading the hatred ya’ll spew – and my ex wife was white too – so at least u know i don’t have a problem with white girls – maybe i’m just half racist huh – u should read teh profile that The Bermudian magazine did on me in their summer 02 issue as far as my mother’s outspokenness – it’s no different than dunleavys –… Read more »

Bill b,
I don’t appreciate personalized attacks such as ‘Stalker Vanz’ and have little interest in watching by blog turn into a personalized cat fight.
I’ll ask that everyone keep things civil.

Ah, nostalgia.,,,,,,,,,,, Gotta love the two worst defences in the book:
1. If I’m attacked (even when I’ve written the most hateful screed) compare my attacker to Nazis, KKK, neo-Nazis………..Take yer’ pick!!
2. I sleep with white women, so I can’t be a racist……..
What next? “Some of my best friends arezzzzzzzzzzzz”?
But, hey, why not post another photo of a lynching? That’ll make everything OK……..

bill b – let’s start fresh – how can we just get along – i can honestly tell u that most times when blk bdans express anger or “venom” re; race it is as an honest reaction to what they’ve experienced – it might not be right but most humans are only…human

I will agree with your penultimate comment, Vanz. I’m sure that’s the case. However, where does one draw the line between ‘anger’ and outright racist hate speech? Is anger an excuse for everything that you’ve said and done? It is open knowledge in the blogging community that you have personally engaged in what can best be described as a form of abusive cyber-stalking against those with whom you disagree. I have personally seen incontrovertible evidence of this (the internet isn’t quite as anonymous as you’d like to think, you know), and yet you have steadfastly refused to admit what you… Read more »

OMG bill – be truthful – don’t use the plural when u say “cyber-stalking against those with whom you disagree.” u and i both know that we are talking about 1 person pissy dunleavy – and pls if u have %100 evidence that i have cyberstalked then pls “leak it” to the internet . what i have done in re; to dunleavy is, as a shareholder in Axis, the company he works for, i reported to the head of investor relations that according to the time stamps on his blog postings (he has sinced stopped time stamping) he seemed to… Read more »

See, Vanz, I wasn’t talking about that, or was even aware of that (assuming that those are even genuine communications that you’ve posted), but I suppose that it’s tough for you to pick and choose what to admit to. You’ve been sending anonymous abuse via multiple free email addresses – that you apparently believe are untraceable (wrong!) – to more than one person. Think back Vanz. You’ve also been spamming politics.bm with libelous abuse, on the mistaken assumption that it’s untraceable. Pick up a copy of ‘The Internet For Dummies’, or a similar text before engaging in such activities again.… Read more »

again – we’re talking about dunleavy – politics.bm is his site right – and again if u have 100% proof then show it – not to mention that most of the computers i use are accessed by a large number of people and there are no internet services in my name – so unless you have time stamped video tape of me “stalking” dunleavy – quiet down. and as far as the validity of the axis letter -ask dunleavy urself – what do u think prompted this post of his: Politics.bm October 14, 2007 Housekeeping A little housekeeping: 1) The… Read more »

Not so fast, Chapman. If you can read properly, which I assume you can, despite your frequently bizarre posts (not sure what that’s all about), I said ‘more than one person’. I’m not going to pipe down, so don’t presume to tell me what to do, because you have been well and truly busted, and you know it. You’re suggesting that someone with the same small group of IP addresses and other identifying features (not going to divulge the latter of these to you, as you are apparently clueless about them, which is amusing for someone engaging in your conduct),… Read more »

“i reported to the head of investor relations that according to the time stamps on his blog postings (he has sinced stopped time stamping) he seemed to be blogging rather than wrkng ” Vanz, this is a very dirty tactic and displays very poor character. If you knew how blogging platforms work you’d know that they allow you to schedule your posts to appear at specific times to correspond with when your visitors most frequently read. It’s a readership building tactic, one that you’ve nefariously exploited. This thread has gone far beyond it’s intentions and has gotten out of hand.… Read more »
