3 Big Reasons Why Filipinos Will Always Be Stupid

So, are you ready for round 3 people of the Philippines? Did my last two beatdowns hurt? Well then, get ready because this is going to hurt even more…

See, as I’ve come to note again and again, when people coddle you, you never really pay attention to them. Not only do you refuse to listen to them, you ridicule them even. As one commenter, Mr Zaxxun I believe, cited in one of my previous articles, people in the Bible often hated prophets for calling them out on their stupidity and  wrongdoings. They went as far as killing them by stoning and worse because they were the kind of people who just wanted to be happy all the time. They refused to stop and reconsider the error of their ways and the consequences of their actions. It was only when the disasters promised by God came that they realized just how wrong they really were.

aldub_philippines

Look, I’ve been here on GRP for more than six months now. To be honest, I doubt we can really achieve so much. We’re only bloggers after all and all we can really do is do the best we can as individual human beings and try to awaken as many Filipinos as possible and rally them behind our cause. However, as I’ve come to discover, there are a lot of you who don’t want to wake up. There are so many of you who’d rather sleep and play than accept the grim reality that terrible things are afoot and that, unless we do something about them, they will spell the end for us and our families.

Stupidity, as you can see, isn’t the same as simply being dumb. Dumb people just don’t know any better and can at least be forgiven partly for their errors. However a stupid person knows better but he or she keeps doing the wrong thing anyway.

So why do I think Pinoys will always be stupid?

Here are my three points:

Pinoys Are NOT Attentive

Okay, let’s talk about my previous article, the one with the AlDub photo. How many people do you think actually read the whole article before reacting? How many do you think simply let their emotions get the better of them when they commented? Better yet, how many do you think simply let their own emotions answer for them instead of considering what they’ve read first?

In the comments section alone, as I’ve mentioned in the article I wrote before this one, I have commented multiple times that I was not the one who chose the photo and that the article itself had nothing to do with the AlDub couple in the first place. However, one can note that many commenters simply assumed that I was attacking the AlDub couple and its supporters without even bothering to look at the comments I’ve made on the issue.

Ladies and gentlemen, it is our inability to read between the lines and listen to what is not being said that has ruined us time and time again. As I’ve said in my article about President Aquino’s “Straight Path”, it just sounds good but one has to ask what is it really and what has it achieved for us as a nation? More often than not, we react almost immediately without first considering what’s in front of us and what our actions might cause. We are so much like dogs who bite first without ever thinking that we are essentially biting into poisoned meat.

We Like To Delude Ourselves

The thing is, I was actually surprised by the great number of comments on my previous article but was disappointed to see that a lot of commenters missed the point entirely. Again, as I have said, people simply saw what they wanted to see, heard what they wanted to hear and thought what they wanted to think. The whole point of the article was never even considered by a lot of commenters as they went on to assume things and come to their own (often wrong) conclusions about what I was actually talking about.

It’s painful to note that the point of the article was quite far from bashing the AlDub couple yet still, the brave defenders of the noon-time sensation went on to insinuate that I was accusing the show and those who watch it as “stupid”. Also of note, in no point in the article did I imply that I was excluded or exempt from the five negative traits I mentioned and I even actually admitted to it in my next article. At the end of the day, people just resorted to taking my words out of context and using personal attacks simply because they altogether failed to grasp the actual gist of my articles.

See, the problem is, we really like to lie to ourselves. We especially like to do it to make ourselves seem superior. When people attack or offend us, we like to take words our of context and make assumptions like “they must be attacking me because I’m beautiful” or perhaps “they’re just bitter at me” instead of really considering what is being said. More often than not, we let our emotions do our reasoning for us, especially our pride, and refuse to consider how out-of-context our own assumptions may be.

We Are Always In Denial

Here’s another one and this goes hand in hand with our hypocrisy as a people.

When other people, especially foreigners, call us out on our wrongdoings, we are quick to vehemently defend ourselves and insist that they are wrong or are being cruel. We never even stop to consider the possibility that they might even be right and that it is we who needs to apologize to them and not the other way around.

How can we say that we are not thieves when just about everyone seems to think that stealing is okay as long as you don’t get caught? How can we say that we aren’t perverts when we put films like Etiquette for Mistresses over masterpieces like Heneral Luna? How can we say we aren’t sadists when we find other people’s misfortunes funny?

See, refusing to answer these questions aren’t going to disprove them. Denying them is like sweeping rotting food under the carpet. Sooner or later, it will just stink, attract flies and other pests and become a nuisance. Unless we actually clean them up, things will only get worse.

***

So again, I utter my challenge:

Prove me wrong!

This is not an attack– you have a typo. “our” of context. – It’s distracting.

Great points btw; especially the one where we get hyper-defensive when we receive criticism from foreigners. Will read your previous articles and their comments sections ’cause they sound pretty heated.

Have a good one!

I read all of the openning statements. Said to say from my own first hand experience it is all accurate. There are some lone filipinos who are not like that . Those tend to keep to themselves. They dont belong to a local filipino club. In public they meet other filipinos. They are nice to them but thats it. They are from a codependent society. Saving face and afraid to appear wrong or not know something you ask them. If you ask for directions and they dont know they feel obligated to tell you something instead of just telling the… Read more »

Mr. Butthurt was replying to a person who essentially claimed to have a better education than Grimwald, yet has no idea how to use punctuation, proper sentence structure or vocabulary, not to mention a total lack of paragraphing.

Hey I agree with you about the crab mentality and the obnoxious worship for white skin. But reflect on this, the worship for white skin didn’t just happen in a vacuum. We’ve been invaded by 3 light skinned colonizers, you know. And even after independence from United States, they still continued to make their power known through their military bases especially before at Subic. It wasn’t until 1992 that the thing got shut down but now I even heard they’ve re-opened it (dreadful). That military base encouraged that sickening mentality of Filipinas to do prostitution around the 1970s, and sadly… Read more »

I agree on your opinion. But, I would like to add another factor to the issue of us filipinos, as somewhat having a lot of negative attributes, and that is corruption.You see I grew up abroad and decided to come back in our country to study and serve the filipino people, and in my observation it’s a vicious cycle of corruption, illeteracy, and a wrong sense of pride. Which makes it difficult to fix, but, I’m still hopeful.

failipinos are always demanding respect because they stupidly think that they are special. No wonder why people in other countries call us peenoise.

If one thinks that they are living in a stupid country, they can be sure that they are being governed by the most stupid people. Failipinos in the Failippines are a good example of why some animals eat their young. The problem with educating stupid Failipinos was that they didn’t know they were stupid. The same went for curing crazy people. Hard it is to suffer through stupid people in the Failippines. Failipinos make you feel sorry for them, and if your sorrow is as great as your hurt, you will allow Failipinos to go free of punishment, for their… Read more »

Having white skin is no longer associated with money in the Philippines unless you’re trying to become a movie and television celebrity. Lots of OFWs, Balikbayans, and tourists from other countries are loaded with remittance monies that’ll attract every opportunists out of the woodwork from this society—with a big smile, friendly demeanor, and ulterior motives as deep as the Marianas Trench.

I live in Australia. In my observation, many Americans are as ignorant and insular as the Filipinos. Many believe their own trash media, just like the Filipinos. Many eat up Hollywood propaganda, just like Filipinos. And have ignorant sense of viewing the world, like many Filipinos. It is no wonder you are sold that easily by the Filipina myth, just like how many Filipinos who are sold by the myth of the “American dream”.

Correct. It is time for the Philippines to stand on their own. They must purchase their own weapons that is within the budget. Let us say, 7 missile-armed frigates and 3 squadrons of fighter jets.

If I may answer, it doesn’t matter really. Whether it will use AlDub, Pastillas, Pacquiao, or even Gilas, it’s not really the point. Clickbait? Could be.

And, if these Filipinos do think they are indeed good, I expect them to come back and say either an apology or if they don’t want to, a line something like “On second look, I think you got a point.

I don’t believe Filipinos are stupid when it comes to their own welfare; they know what they want and crafty enough to get it. However, Filipinos are short-sighted, and think only as individuals, especially when it comes to their country’s survival and well-being.

By simply posing this article Grimwald, you have already set us into thinking and that by itself is a solution. So for all of us, read and be encouraged to read, and think, and by thinking, we would be able to find solutions, which we have thought about by ourselves. We don’t need to be spoonfed with solutions, we find them…..problem ID, brainstorming/discussion even with a group of one- yourself (have you done soliloquy? try it), finding available resources -within and without, planning in logical order which prob to solve first by order of necessity/importance/urgency/, find the solutions, do the… Read more »

I love the difference of being dumb and stupid. Dumb is funny. But stupidity is irritating. Like our f#$kin neighbor.

Grimwald, what you said: “that thieving isn’t thieving unless one gets caught” is right. My Boss has this to say: “we go by the documents….as long as the documents are ok, there’s no problem”…..of course, the docs didn’t state it there that the activity which was supposed to be conducted 2 days was held only in a half-day, and the completed meals and snacks placed there, were actually one heavy snack for one-morning’s session, and that was it. Oh, so much for fake papers because there are many who are just too willing to affix/sign their names on a fake… Read more »

There is another style that I know. Asking for a blank receipt, with the help of the owner of the establishment like hotel where staffs checked in or the vehicle that was rented.

Every penny on the budget is reported to have been spent up to the last centavo and nothing made it back as savings when in reality, a portion of it went to the pockets of staffs, especially the superiors.

I’ve seen this myself.

Must be really tough to work with a dickhead for a boss.

I also read from some of the comments below that you Grimwald seem not to offer any solution. They should try to re-read it and understand between the lines ….for your article shouts that as a people we need to exercise our brains, or what’s your article for but by simply urging us to read it, and read we did, set all of us into thinking? Ahhh, the whole exercise, I was glad I was able to read it to the end, others are just too tired and maybe read only the first sentence and like my Boss did with… Read more »

Hindi tanga ang Pinoy. marami lang talaga satin ang mapagmataas, nangmamata, nagmamagaling, reklamador at nagmamarunong. Sa totoo lang natural lang sa tao kahit saan pang bansa ang sumalungat sa anu mang hindi tugma sa prinsipyo nya. lalo na kung sikat ito sa karamihan. Eto ang solusyon. tama na ang pagmamataas at pageenglis para magmukhang matalino. tama na ang pagbuhat ng sariling banko at paghihila sa lahi natin pababa. magsumikap sa pilipinas at magtrabaho dito at di sa ibang bansa. wag masyado magtangkilik ng produkto na hindi atin. magblog ka ng anung dapat gawin ng simpleng tao para makatulong sa ekonomiya… Read more »

“Sa totoo lang natural lang sa tao kahit saan pang bansa ang sumalungat sa anu mang hindi tugma sa prinsipyo nya. lalo na kung sikat ito sa karamihan.” “but this happens everywhere” would be the typical response from a Pinoy to this post. They love to make general statements like this to make you believe that everyone and every country is just as dysfunctional as the Philippines. “Eto ang solusyon. tama na ang pagmamataas at pageenglis para magmukhang matalino. tama na ang pagbuhat ng sariling banko at paghihila sa lahi natin pababa. magsumikap sa pilipinas at magtrabaho dito at di… Read more »

Ever heard of “Pinoy Pride?” That is the brand of the masses in which In my opinion, has a bad connotation. Such pride is reflected to this comment depicting false nationalism.

Ugh I hate ultranationalism! failipinos should stop thinking that they’re special and are the best race in the world because they’re not. They never prove how great they are (and if they are they just show it off too much) because all they did is nothing but credit grabbing some Filipino’s or even half-blood’s own goals and achievements and then label it “proud to be pinoy”. That is crazy.

You know why progressive countries are in the state of what they are today? It’s because they complain, whenever something is wrong the point it out and will try to find a solution. So just because some countries are hellhole of a state does not mean we have to emulate them. There is nothing with having guilty pleasures. Lets admit it we all have our guilty pleasures. But doing and thinking about “Not so productive activities” all throughout the day everyday is really stupid in my mind. What is wrong with speaking English? Take note it is our official language… Read more »

Sa pilipinas po kasi pag meh nagrereklamo ang sinasabi, hindi ka marunong magtiis + wala kang utang na loob + hindi ka marunong magpasalamat sa kung anong natatanggap mo + blah, blah, blah..

Mga utak talangka. Sarap sakalin at nang mabawasan ang pagiging overpopulated dito sa pinas. Mababawasan din ang mga utak talangka.
