The Jamaican Government needs to lock up all JFLAG members and charge them for inciting Terrorist activities against Buju Banton & Reggae Music!
San Francisco Mayor is alleged to have said that informants in Jamaica are sending him information that Jamaica is the “MURDER CAPITAL OF THE WORLD FOR GAYS”
Now the good thing about the information is that it is 99% true.
It is alleged as a result of this false and malicious information from Jamaica, carefully orchestrated with these terrorist groups targeting Buju Banton’s concerts are directly tied with the aims and goals of JFLAG.
The nerve of these people to name their sick and immoral lifestyle with an acronym that passes as Jamaican Flag.
I call for GAZA & GULLY SIDE to unite and support Buju Banton in Jamaica.
GAZA MI SEH, GULLY MI SEH, BUJU MI SEH.
My two cents:
This just illustrates ignorance and sheer intolerance on the writers part. JFLAG is not a membership organization and no one from JFLAG or any other group initiated the boycott campaign against Buju Banton, he did that himself over the years with statements like the war between him and the faggots won't end which he repeated some days ago on a radio program with Mutabaruka.
It is not about promoting homosexuality as there is no need to promote an orientation, people so choose to act on their urges desires and identity. The Gully/Gaza comment clearly indicates the level of ignorance involved here as well.
Gaza has always been associated with terrorism and civil war and Gully always refers to waste removal of drainage, is this what we have reduced our country to, factions liking to these two meanings? I thought Jamaica was about "Out of many one people" not two tribes as carved by two dancehall artists, Vybz Kartel (Gaza) and Mavado (Gully) who are clearly playing with fan's affections to remain relevant while the same fans kill themselves off in defense of the respective groups, they the artists drink champagne and laughing at all of us. Boy, talk about mental slavery.
When will we ever just live and let live?
