General News of Saturday, 30 October 2010
The lineup of elected officers within the New Patriotic Party depicts a who’s who in irresponsible, sardonic, reprehensible speech that is only good for a toilet.
On Wednesday, it was the turn of the bombastic windbag who calls himself the National Youth Organizer, Anthony Karbo. Whilst vegetating unchallenged on Choice FM’s skewed and biased programme, he opened his clomosis and said in relation to the ongoing war of words between Sir John aka the bushman from Cocoa ase and Kobby Acheampong that he (Acheampong) was a wife beater and that Kobby had beaten and spat upon his wife after she had discovered that he had taken an adulterous trip to South Korea. These insidious remarks he made are totally unfounded and unproven. Yet in a bid to make him himself popular with his despicable ilk, he made them thinking he would get away scot free.
What Anthony Karbo and the NPP need to understand is that the era when the NDC refused to step into the abyss with them when it comes to insulting speech is over. They should realize that the NDC is more than capable of matching and in most cases, over powering them when it comes to flinging innuendo. More so, when the issue of wife beating is a subject that their flag bearer Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo holds a PHD in. Is Anthony Karbo aware that Nana Addo is alleged to have beaten his then pregnant wife incessantly until she dropped dead? Is he aware of that story? Is Anthony Karbo aware that should we decide to tread down this slippery slope; the most likely victim will be the NPP flag bearer? The alleged intravenous narcotics user, wee smoker, cocaine sniffer, serial philanderer and adulterer and now wife beater extraordinaire? This man purports to be a pillar of society and is trying to grandfather himself into the presidency with all these serious character issues hanging over him. So Anthony Karbo is more than welcome to engage in the wife beating stakes, and the NDC will gladly tick Nana Addo’s already ballooning column of questionable character issues that will definitely be prosecuted during the upcoming 2012 campaign.
