Letter: Where are the St. Maarteners?

POSTED: 06/25/12 3:02 PM

We have many foreign people always insulting the people of St. Maarten/St. Martin heritage but it seems only a few people of St. Maarten/St. Martin get offended. We have foreigners telling us that part of our culture is wrong (cock fighting) but yet no St. Maartener/St. Martiner feels offended. There are governments that gave grace periods to thousands of illegal immigrants yet no St. Maartener/St. Martiner feels offended. The man from Corsica that manages Booboo Jam makes derogative statements about St. Martiners then pushes them and St. Maarteners/St. Martiners could care less. Hypocrisy is people who only want to be a St. Maartener/St. Martiner when they can benefit from it.
It is strange that all the negative things are happening to the people of St. Maarten/St. Martin heritage and no one is looking to start a signature drive to stop our people of St. Maarten heritage from being abused. But oh yes, cockfight and environmental issues and not forgetting our local brothers who fish for a living, oh yeah they need license. Where is the church or all the St. Maarteners/St. Martiners or those same people who are against cock fighting on a signature drive to stop The Netherlands from imposing abortion, homosexuality and pedophilia on St. Maarten? Is homosexuality and abortion a St. Maarten/St. Martin value? If it is, St. Maarten is a dying nation. Everything that was a St. Maarten/St. Martin value is now offensive to foreigners like it is their country.
Where are all the so-called born here St. Maarteners who love St. Maarten? They are nowhere to be found. But every so call wanabee wants Leopold James and the (St. Maarten Nation Building Foundtion) SNBF and the patriot Miguel Arrindell to define as much people as possible as a St. Maartener/ St. Martiner. You want to be a St. Maartener/St. Martiner then prove it by standing for St. Maarten values by establishing a signature drive to make our government recognize the people of St. Maarten heritage in the constitution. Secondly all those people who mock St. Maarten people of heritage should be taught a lesson so that they will never ever think about offending people of St. Maarten heritage. Third make it your business to defend St. Maarten/St. Martin values all time.
I guarantee you 99 percent of the so called wanabees, will not carry out those three requirements, and I guess that is their way of showing how much they love St. Maarten/St. Martin. Love of country is proven in actions. How can we include people as St. Maarteners when they have no interest in defending St. Maarten’s culture and values.

Yours truly,
Miguel Arrindell
The Patriot
