I’m addressing this to the Marcos Loyalists, and Macoytards alike.
Dear Marcos Loyalists and Macoytards: I like your Marcoses, and I completely support them. However, I am not going to be a blind fanatic.
Typical Macoytard logic: “If you hate the Marcoses, then please avoid receiving your 13th or 14th month pay, if you’re going to fight and stick for your principles.”
TRUTH: 13th/14th month pay is a BASIC RIGHT. It’s like water, electricity, and food!
I bet, the Libyans loved their Gaddafi. However, were there Gaddafi loyalists? Gaddafi-tards? I don’t think so. Gaddafi NEVER asked anything in return, and he gave everything for the average Libyan.
Typical Macoytard logic: “Please don’t pass NLEX, SLEX, or our precious PICC if you hate the Marcoses.”
TRUTH: Marcos never asked anything in return. So, you need to have a Marcos Loyalist loyalty/reward card to pass through these infrastructures!? SERIOUSLY!?
Well, fear NOT! You could still ride the LRT at all costs, even though you hate Marcos. There’s no such thing as a “Marcos Loyalist loyalty/reward card.” However, there are things that you must consider: Never be an inconvenience! Say for example, the guards of the Philippine Lung Center vs. the Bayan Muna leader Teddy Casiño. The guards were wrong in saying, “They hate Marcos, but they’re entering the premises that Marcos made for the Filipinos.” They could have said, “They’re simply causing inconvenience to the patients, so we have to do our job to protect ’em.”
Sorry, Teddy C., you’re DOOMED!
Typical Macoytard logic: Mga pasaway lang ang biktima ng Martial Law! (Those who disobeyed the law were victims of Martial Law!
TRUTH: Not everyone who was a victim of the most controversial period of the 70s and 80s were disobedient to the law.
It still depends on your perspective. If you’re pro-Marcos, then definitely Martial Law was beneficial to you. Meanwhile, if you experienced Martial Law, and hated Marcos all throughout your entire course of life, then you prolly believe that Martial Law did not give you benefits. Remember, Martial Law could be beneficial or malignant—this is because during these periods of time, it was obviously at the height of the Cold War, where the domino effect took place in Indochina (the continental Southeast Asia). So, Marcos has to do his job first, risking his reputation worldwide.
PS: Sorry, Mr. Riyoh. It seems that you should not generalize the victims of Martial Law.
Typical Macoytard logic: The victims of Martial Law receiving compensation? PATHETIC!
TRUTH: Of course, the innocent victims who did not know anything about the true meaning of Martial Law deserve compensation. Remember, pacifism is NOT for everyone, and an apology cannot be enough for most of ’em. Some law enforcement officials were simply put, abusive.
Those who do not deserve compensation at all are the following: Neri Colmenares, Joma Sison, Sonny Trillanes, and of course, the leftists who spread germs, and were under the “past” of Davao City as the “murder capital.” And also, Risa Hontiveros.
Typical Macoytard logic: Dahil nailibing na si Apo Makoy sa Libingan ng mga Bayani, siya na ay isang BAYANI! WOOHOO! (Because Marcos is buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, he’s now a HERO! WOOT WOOT!)
TRUTH: Being buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani does not actually make him a hero.
He can be a hero for most people. However, in my opinion, he’s not a hero. For me, he’s still an important figure in Philippine history, whether we like it, or we like it. Yet…
Well, I’d rather have Marcos being buried in the LnmB, than Ninoy Aquino. Why? If Ninoy is instead buried at the LnmB, then definitely the Philippines will be a laughing stock to its Asian neighbors. No kidding at all. China is already a laughing stock because their Chairman Mao is a “hero,” and not only that; despite its fast-growing economy, most people outside China still do not feel it, because of the following: Overpopulation, pollution, and you know, only the “more prominent” cities receive the same amount of wealth as Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Tianjin, or Guangzhou. I’m not bashing China at all, yet this is the sad reality. Notice that the younger Chinese are flocking towards the States to receive higher education (if they have the money, though), or the Philippines if they want to be closer to their homeland.
And you think that it’s good to have a communist government?
Communist states are bastions of corruption and human rights violations. You may think I’m being biased towards capitalism and democracy, yet if you’re going to delve towards the history of present and former communist states, they do have a bloody history. To the leftists—before concluding that it’s good to have a communist government, think again: It’s only good for people who are too lazy to work hard for a good life. In Mongolia, socialism might have been beneficial to the nomads, yet think about this: What if, Mongolia did not transition to democracy? Will they still enjoy the freedom that they have right now, care of transitioning to a democracy?
So yeah, this makes me believe that Marcos should be buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, if you’re going to consider him a hero. At least, Marcos saved us from the evils of communism, but the social elite did not care (they were too busy fighting for power-struggle, no wonder, Marcos exploited ’em! LOL).
Dear Marcos supporters: Have some humanity in you!
Blind fanaticism does not help. AT ALL. In fact, political correctness is the reason why the Philippines is still shit, until now. Why not listen to critical supporters such as Raffy Gutierrez, Thinking Pinoy (RJ Nieto), and of course, Prof. Antonio Contreras?
I like Gina Lopez, but that does not mean, I’ll support her mistakes as well. Her statement towards a reporter was soooooo unbecoming for her. Not all reporters are paid hacks, trust me! They’re there to spread NEWS, and that kind of news cannot be FAKE NEWS. If that’s FAKE NEWS, and it’s from a “legit” source, then that’s propaganda.
Now tell me, do you still have to be a blind fanatic?
