Get Real Koko Narak

I was thinking of taking a break on the weekend and keep off of writing for a while but certain things just can’t be put off so easily. One of these hotly debated topics center around the Thai national Prasertri Kosin or Koko Narak and the insults he threw at the Filipino people, describing them as “dangerous” and that he is afraid that he will somehow be infected with the disease that is being (in his own terms) “Pignoy”. While certainly horrible and I myself am offended by the things he said, I find the reaction of many of my fellow Filipinos equally distasteful and disappointing.

I will take the time to point out that yes, I too am deeply insulted by what Koko Narak had to say about us. I see a man who is very immature and, based on his pics, is quite full of himself. The Philippines, as it is, is already a troubled nation and insulting her is similar to kicking a crippled beggar in the gut. I do not see anything in what he had to say about us Filipinos as “constructive criticism” and that everything he said is really no different from what your typical attention-craving troll might say.

Unfortunately, the way so many Pinoys reacted is, sadly, almost equally dismaying. The order to deport him is really bad enough in its own right but with just how rabid some of his haters are I tend to think that it should be for his own good. What makes it worse though is that I hear so many clamoring for his blood and to have him beaten. True, I would probably have trouble controlling myself should I ever catch sight of his narcissistic mug in real life but to react like angry stray dogs at someone’s trolling is unmaking of a good self-image.

Indeed, the man is probably laughing on the inside now (it just might not be that obvious) because we acted like the kid being bullied at school again. Again, we fail to see the bigger picture of things and throw a tantrum over an offense that doesn’t really hold that much weight in the first place. Yes, everything he said was an insult but I think that him losing his job and credibility is enough for me. There is no need to get us even more riled up just because this loser has some harsh things to say about us. He is at best just another troll seeking attention for himself and went for the easiest way possible by insulting us.

Remember also that we have countrymen who are in dire straits such as Mary Jane Veloso who has been arrested and almost executed for being a drug mule which is probably worse. It is mentioned in the Bible that if we want to be forgiven for our transgressions, we must first learn to forgive the transgressions of others against us. How can we sing the full lyrics of the Lord’s Prayer when we go to church and hope that Indonesia will forgive and spare Mary Jane Veloso from execution when we can’t even let a childish offender be and ignore his dumb antics.

C’mon people, let’s not give in to the silly ramblings of this attention-hungry wacko.

“Pag pinatulan mo ang buang, buang ka rin!”

(If you give in to a wacko’s insults then you’re a wacko too!)

“The Philippines, as it is, is already a troubled nation and insulting her is similar to kicking a crippled beggar in the gut.”

I think you are over compensating here. It only takes a step outside the front door to realise that almost everybody, doesn’t really give a shit… in other words, are defiantly, impervious to change.

Dear Grimwald,
I am trying to put myself in the shoes of Prasertri Kosin. And everytime, people respond, I am laughing and I know I hit a sensitive nerve.
But if all people ignore my message then it becomes a different story.

And finally, would it be possible for you to write an article once without using any religious references?

Truth hurts, but it is the truth…our politicians are “pignoys”…not me. Our squatters, live like pigs. Aquino’s Hacienda Luisita serfs/workers live lower than pigs…”mabuhay ang mga Pignoys!!!!”

I’m amazed by the reactions people make to one petty insult(which might be true anyway if one decides to look deeper into it).

Good call having him sent away it probably just saved him from a cheered and violent mob assault.

Yet people don’t surprise me anymore.

It’s not at all hard to understand a person ; it’s only hard to listen without bias.

Wooo-hoo! Pinoys can really dish it out but cannot take it! Honestly i still had that knee jerk reaction “katayin na yan” but after a few moments of reflection, its basically a trait we pinoys do too (especially here in the middle east). difference is that koko was arrogant (and stoopid) enough to post it on his fb for his patrons to see and share. What you get is a flood of haters, especially with people who put pride first over everything else. I guess that knee-jerk reaction is something i’ll never shake off – we only have critical thinking… Read more »

LMAO, if this kid is really getting deported because he insulted the Filipino people, the country or the culture it is a sign of what true immaturity really is. First off, who gives a flying fuck what this kid thinks or says? WHO IS HE ANYWAY? AND even more troubling is that: Are people getting upset because what he said is true? IDK WTF this little douchbag had to say but wasting a single moment on him is probably what he was hoping for and Filipino’s just fell right into his little game.Douchbags will be douchbags and I say let… Read more »

why? why not laugh at his smug ass? Risk spending your life in jail for what? Because of this class-less little douchbag? Tell you the truth, just looking at this little kid makes me laugh !

I read the stuff he wrote and while I also got ticked some, I took it in for a bit and thought about it. He had some valid points, although not exactly I would term as astute observations.

However, losing his job and being deported and the photo of him in handcuffs…that was a going way overboard. We could’ve just let him be, he hasn’t done any serious damage from what I can see.

But again, it’s just me.

what he said put too much pain to filipino citizen,especially those who lived in a righteous manner,he deserved to be deported,and banned here,God want us to forgive,but God also want us to stay away from negative people,who used words to crash down a pure soul,nobody has the right to insult and judge others,pantay pantay lang tayo in the eyes of God,even if u say na mabuti ka kc na control mo ang temper mo pero hinuhusgahan mo naman ang mga taong iba ang naging reaction dont u think masyado kang ngmamataas?tao lng cla nasasaktan bcoz of his harsh words?,Jesus told… Read more »

As a christian I can forgive his immaturity but as a Filipino I do understand the sentiments of most Filipinos who read his negative words towards us. We cannot tolerate those insults coz if we do we are giving other foreign nationals the right to insult us in our own country. I think everyone knows the word “Respect”. “Respect” must be practice & observed when we go to other countries, their culture,tradition, the laws & most esp. “the people”. The same respect we give when we go to Thailand & the same respect should be given to us Filipinos when… Read more »

Of cause he did some stupid and immature things. However the problem of filipino with other neighbor netizen starts years ago. Read and consider some examples for yourself. Mostly for that page. Also see the date. You can find more on any pages about ASEAN issues.

Beside those examples, there were more of them that had been deleted. Take only ASEAN community for example. When Indonesia posted that Indonesian economy was predict to be one of the biggest 10 of the world in xxxx, there were some Filipino who argue it would never happen. Philippines economy is much more bigger than that of Indonesia. When Thailand said that there were xxx tourists visited Thailand this year, there were some Filipino said the number is less that that of PI. When MH370 lost or ex-president Lee Guan Yew passed away, there were some Pinoys that make fun… Read more »
