Dutertards need to win over the Manila vote by being a bit classier

I don’t like starting my articles with the caveat “Don’t get me wrong, but…”. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what everybody did in my last article. So here’s the thing (and I hope all you ‘tards turn on your comprehension faculties for a change): I have no problem with Duterte and, really, I don’t mind him becoming president. He’s got some semblance of a reform platform which makes him a whole cut above the rest. He just seems to be doing everything he can to lose this election. Too bad he is surrounded by idiots who, rather than advise him properly, instead, egg him on by cheering his buffoonery.

Thing is, the reality of Philippine politics is that hipster Manila (and all its gay progressiveness) is still at the center of it all. So you probinsyanos can huff and puff all you want about doing it “da macho Mindanao way”. You’re not gonna win against Manila’s urbane imperialism over the mid-term unless you come up with a long-term strategy. Manila is the wealthiest, most powerful city in the Philippines. Your Davao City is just terrorist-infested hinterland pipsqueak in comparison. The entire Philippines orbits around my city. So guess what:

Deal with it!

If you seriously want to change this current Imperial Manila situation, you need to get your horse to win the race to Malacanang first. Once he’s in Manila and warming Malacanang’s seat, THEN you’re ready to rock n’ roll.

How difficult to understand is that?

If you choose to continue being such probinsyanos about these elections, well, bahala kayo. Manila wins. You lose. You need to think your way through the challenge of winning Manila in the name of Mindanao. If you choose to stomp around and throw tardic tantrums instead of acting like adults, well, all you’ll get is a Happy Meal for your trouble.

Then again, as the conspiracy theories I keep hearing about go, perhaps your guy Duterte is just a turkey dangled by the powers-that-be before all the ‘tards to suck votes away from Binay to pave the way for Mar Roxas’s victory at the polls. After all, without Duterte and G.I. Poe, Mar needs 51% of the vote to win against Jojo Binay. With Duterte in the race, and if he wins over enough of Binay’s camp, Mar could need only 34% to win.

Didn’t do the maths? Of course you didn’t. ‘Tards don’t do math, as I recall.

So who’s the sucker now?

I’ve got news for you guys. GRP is not the enemy here. As soon as you take the time to do some serious thinking, perhaps you’ll get that someday. But I’m not holding my breath. Bobotantes, after all, rule Philippine elections. Being tardic about election debate aggravates that pathetic state of the Philippines’ electoral brains trust. Power to the people, right? Well we’ll reap what we sow again in 2016 by the looks of it. Stupid politicians elected by stupid people. You can tell even now based on the pathetic state of our political “debate” — as vacuous as it’s ever been.

Kat. How could you possibly say that these people suck at math when you think winning the voters of Manila is enough to win the Presidential elections?

If what you say is true, this whole article could just be a ploy to start a rift between “imperial manila” and the “probinsyanos” in the hopes of decreasing Duterte’s votes in the NCR..I hope this writer’s petty rantings will not escalate to a big stupid fight among Filipinos..The difference among us is not the issue..the writer is the issue so target her! LOL Being in the medical field, people should stop using “retards” and also in this case slapping it to their face (those who truly have the condition) that the ‘tards don’t do math. That is just cruel… Read more »

Talk all you want, but isn’t Philippine politics predicated on who gives the most (money, material goods, etc.) to the voters to buy their votes? Case in point: long-standing Mayor of a city in the province loses her re-election bid after being seated for years – should have been automatic according to what I was told. A “voter” (I was informed that this guy, for years, was the lechon cook anytime the now ex-mayor had an event) was asked why he voted for the other guy? According to him, the mayor didn’t give him his customary one sack of rice… Read more »

Are you effing kidding? I would check your socio-economic stats on Manila residents, dear. And to refer to Duterte supporters as ‘tards shows how non-progressive this rant is. Manila residents are in no way more sophisticated voters than the ‘syanos.

Duterte just topped the latest Pulse Asia survey in Manila with 34%. I also thought about Duterte being a ploy of LP to take away populist votes from Poe and Binay. But if you would look at the PA survey in Manila, the moment Duterte declared his candidacy the biggest losers are Poe (down by 15%) and Santiago (down by 12%). Binay on the other hand is barely unscratched down only by 1% while Roxas also suffered and loss 4% (Based on PA Survey in Manila October and November 2015). It seems that Roxas is also affected by the entry… Read more »

pagiging mababaw man pero paalala ko lang na ang nanggatong diyan sa pope issue kay duterte ay si edwin lacierda, and i will not give him that satisfaction. alam naman natin na spokesperson ito ni mar. so sino ba talaga ang pakawala ng liberal? yes, i am a dutertard. admittedly, i suck at math (‘tard nga eh) but my limited skills in arithmetic has led me to conclude that no matter how passionate our debates are on issues and non-issues of our chosen candidates, these will all be for naught if the security features of the hocus-pcos are not reinstated.… Read more »

Dear Kate Natividad, Just because we don’t have the same opinion as you doesn’t mean we are retards. By the way you speak in your article, it seems like you’re the retard here and doesn’t have class at all. You have agreeable points, but you have wrong mentality. Stop giving negative connotation to “probinsyano”. And Davao is not a terrorist-infested hinterland pipsqueak in comparison. Deal with that πŸ™‚ The only thing there is something called “imperial manila” because there are people like you who thinks that way. Your percentage of votes are even just estimations.

I see on your profile that you are a frustrated artist doing geek for a living. Try harder. That’s coming from a geek who has been earning his living crunching numbers and advising companies. Your math doesn’t add up. Plus thinking that Manila residents are classy? Davao is terrorist infested hinterland pipsqueak? Get your facts right before you try to do geek for a living.

Isa ka sa dahilan kung bakit maraming tao ang gusto iboto si duterte. Mapanglait at ang tingin sa sarili ay napakataas, dahil ba sa taga manila ka? And please manila is not the whole philippines, and fyi yung tinatawag mong probinsyano ay napakarami sa manila. Check your fact straight! Ang lakas ng sapi mo ng sabihing bobotante ako (kami) because we want duterte to be in malacanang. Well ang basehan ko lng nman ay aΓ§complishment nya. Then lets talk about your roxas, maybe he is good as legistrator but not as administrator. As a matter of fact palipat lipat ng… Read more »

Dear writer,
Im not even from davao but i choose to support Duterte for this coming election because I’m sick and tired of hearing in the news the criminality and all the problem that befall you’re beloved imperial Manila.

What? Manila is classy?! Did you look around your area? How many poor people are there compared to the rich ones? Do the math since you are good at it. Calling us tards and that davao is terrorist infested makes you classy? Wow. Hanep. πŸ™„

She consider herself classy. Pero di niya naintindihan ang math sa reality na kung di dahil sa probinsya, mahirap pa sila sa daga. Wala naman silang agriculture. Bagyo lang ang sa kanila. Siguro yan ang dahilan bakit siya mapagmataas. Sobrang bagyo ang inaabot sa isang taon, kaya ang pag-iisip, wala sa hulog. Kung di dahil sa mga probinsya at mga probinsyano, di nila matitikman ang sinasabi nilang class…

Dear Kate, Do you know that half of the country’s taxes comes from Mindanao? Do you also know that most of the raw resources in the country comes from Mindanao? And, are you aware that out of the billions of the taxes collected in the country, Visayas and Mindanao only receives 17% of it? Fucking 17% Kate! Since you are so good at Math, tell us how to work on that 17% budget and not hate the Imperial Manila for it. Tell us how to create economic centers when all of our resources are vacuumed by Imperial Manila and leave… Read more »

Why don’t you start with teaching yourself the basic principle of presumption of innocence. To make it easier for you to comprehend, it means that someone is always innocent until proven guilty. With him being a womanizer, the man is single he can do what he wants with his free time. That being said, being a womanizer does not affect his performance in any way. Do you know that Duterte passed initiatives advocated for women? No, you obviously don’t. With the cursing, I cannot deny the shock value that this has created. It will take some time since Duterte’s not… Read more »

Nako, KC Cruz pasintabi lang po, pag sinabi mo yan sa anak mo, kasalanan mo na yan. Kung responsable kang magulang ang sabihin mo sa anak mo ay may mga di magandang pag-uugali si Mayor Duterte na di dapat tularan. Pero meron din siyang mga magandang nagawa para sa bayan at yun ang pwedeng tularan.

This post is nothing but a stupid uneducated rant. An opinion based on her intrepid over defensive squatter-type ego. She obviously does not have anything to show but her downright insensibility. How is it even possible that your kind get to write on this website?? You just shot yourself in the knee with your own gun. Your a perfect kind of imbecile. Freedom of speech is awesome indeed. Stop shaming yourself.

Manila is faaaaaar from classy my dear tangang writer and seriously, you are so bobo in math too.
