Stupid legacy: PNoy threat to launch ‘people power’ if Duterte and Marcos Jr win

pnoy_duterte

I showed the “Duterte rape joke” video to guys not in the internet on three occasions, family drivers, tryke drivers, construction workers. The reaction was unanimous that Rodrigo Duterte (DU30) was not cracking a necrophiliac joke, nor was he promoting rape. They interpreted “dapat na-una mayor” as “tarantado kayo, mas tarantado ako”. It was to them a rape joke alright, but as I already suspected, not about rape per se, but in advanving his machismo image. So, I understand now why the audience laughed.

I will speculate that in the next survey, we will see a decrease in number in the ABC crowd, which has been his forte, but perhaps not that much since this segment, I guess, is more interested in a protest vote or a vote of disgust with the incumbent. On the other hand, he might have picked up votes in the D and E since the tabloids have picked up on the story.

DU30 now concentrates his campaign on the National Capital Region (NCR), Cebu, and Mindanao, and he is well on his way to the palace by the Pasig River. Bongbong Marcos (BBM) has also cementing his lead via Luzon and the NCR, concentrating on labor groups where he has gained much support of even those who used to be dissidents of Martial Law (ML).

If ever, it is Grace Poe who would have gained from Duterte’s rape joke scandal because the favorability survey of Mar Roxas and Jejomar Binay are in the scale of hate. People are just repulsed by these two.

But what is more worrisome now is that President Benigno Simeon Aquino III (PNoy) said he will lead a people power uprising if a DU30-BBM win happens. This is not an empty threat. He might not have people since his favorability rating is now zero in NCR and his Laglagan Party will no longer be there. Unfortunately, his core group remains. These bastards think the Philippines is all about them and all for them. They created a bubble economy to prop up their image, but really not to help the country. They will now incite havoc to burst that bubble. They can do that easily. PNoy has demonstrated his capability for treason just to advance themselves as he did in his now-infamous Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) project.

A DU30-BBM tandem will hit the ground running, and PNoy has to be careful or he will likely end up in jail. DU30 will resist every provocation to declare ML as this will only prove PNoy correct. But, the amount of chaos that will be created will be a measure of the extent to which the stupidity of PNoy will go. A stupid president will leave a stupid legacy. Just wish the likes of Raffy Alunan, Dante Liban, Roman Romulo, etc. instead of Pacquiao, Villanueva, Hontiveros, etc were in the Senate to help, but it seems the Senate will be more of the same, and it could be another problem.

So people will rejoice that change has come on May 9, but that change might not be beautiful in first two years because PNoy that early period could serve as a testing phase for PNoy’s on-going post-presidential stupidity.

Pnoy will probably enjoy jail time because there are lots of men in there; but I doubt the government will put him in there. They’re still working on GMA.

He expects people to hear his call when under his administration the Philippines is now tagged as the most corrupt country in Asia?
Who to blame? Aquino, Roxas and Binay. Together they institutionalized corruption in our native land. We have to restore our national dignity and the only person who’s got the determination to that is Duterte.

The funniest thing about PNoy’s proclamation is that if BBM wins the VP race, it would be because of democracy. It means people exercised their democracy to place BBM in the position. Isn’t that what his family fought for??? They claim they that they fought against former president Marcos to give the people their god given democracy. By saying that they will instigate a revolution against a democratic choice, it’s starting to seem like they never really fought for democracy. They merely fought to gain back their position and power – which is what they plan to do again if… Read more »

Do you really think that the first “people power revolution” was about the people?it was about corruption. The aquinos devided the philippines just to be rich. did you really think the marcoses could steal billions in such short amount of time? There were no ebanking at that time, the money was still in the country devided by the aquinos, enriles, ramos, binays and everyone who organized the so called “revolution”. We are in shit right now coz we were fooled by the government we trusted.

During the reign of Marcos & Imelda, they promoted General Ver (their driver) as General for his loyalty. Also people from Ilocos and Leyte were hired in all government departments and promoted to sensitive positions. They were loyal agents. Some stories go that close mates/relatives report to Malacanang Palace regularly (weekly??) to deliver cash to Malacanang. Is that hard to imagine as possible? I think that is hard to invent. As they say, “Truth is stranger than fiction.

u failed to mention the havoc in our economy and the loot stolen by pcgg in cory’s time. it is said that it took only 2 years for cory and his bright boys to plunder our country while it took marcos & co. 20 years to do so. the irony is that what marcos
took, the kamaganak pocketed.

Ok so you’re still looking for that hidden wealth of Marcos eh? Let’s say in Chicago there ruled Mafia A led by big boss A. They ran the underground business for years. Then came Mafia B which rose to dethrone Mafia A, with boss A dying of his wounds after the gunbattle. The good intelligent son of boss A was left an inheritance of “dirty money” accumulated by the illegal business of the former Mafia lord (boss A). What should the son of boss A do with the inheritance? A) use it for legitimate business B) return it to the… Read more »

But why do almost all people think that the Marcos administration was BETTER than the administrations after it? After Marcos, everything started to go up and people stated to suffer more. Compare the Martial Law era compared to the present Aquino Administration. Today, everything is so sh*t that people want to leave the country. Traffic is bad, government services are bad, public transportation is bad, and everything the government do is just blame the previous administration and not doing anything. It’s obvious that the Aquino’s wanted to control the Philippines and you are blindly following a family who is benefiting… Read more »

They are planning to impeach Duterte if Leni won. Its obvious they could do it.. They have the senate and the congress at their hands.. Do you think the Aquino’s are so eager to help the Filipinos?

Hacienda Luicita pa nga lang hindi na nila mabigay sa karapatdapat na nagmamay-ari, isang bansa pa na ang mga tao ay lugmok sa kahirapan.

Sodo,

“They are planning to impeach Duterte if Leni won.”

That, my friend, is a fact. Duterte was a complete anomaly that never should happen had the oligarchs had their way. It’s not too late, though. These asshole, political dynasties will still find a way to rid themselves of Duterte. If he’s lucky, Duterte might get the same cell house that Erap stayed in.

Just wait and see.

I agree with the sentiments of the author except for one thing :
MDS is not being included in the choice of president candidates.
She is the best among all the 5 of them.
Her health is not that big issue.
We all die because we are all mortals.
Who’s to know when any of them, Duterte, Poe, Binay, and Roxas will go ?
Have faith, Filipinos !

R2D2

Kudos to that. Not to mention that MDS is the only candidate who doesn’t have any issue among the candidates.

But for PNOY to say that being the president is really idiotic. He is not setting a good example.

Well, it’s true and he contacted Binay to see if he would support him in a new people power uprising that he would lead. Binay basically told him to go fuck himself.
Big surprise there.

So what Aquino is saying that he wants to overthrow 2 duly elected people. The Aquino family, protectors of democracy? Sickening scum!

Would it not be hilarious if he will try to stage another EDSA and no one shows up, followed by him being arrested. Oh the joy, I’m having tears in my eyes just thinking about it.

Wow Jim DiGriz you have inside track in Malacanang…amazing! First of all, the article sucks. On the rape issue, I can’t believe GRP dismisses it just like that. Go watch the video over and over again and see if that joke was meant to be what GRP says it means to be. Such hypocrisy. Go and support Duterte that’s your right but making everything he does is right even if they are not just because one supports him smacks of dirty politics and plain idiocy. Then GRP diverts the issue to Pnoy, clap, clap clap!

I believe it’s a bit small minded to argue using a line similar to this: “Your opinion is wrong because you’re a moron.”

An intelligent mind would argue like this: “Your opinion is wrong and here’s why… (procede to give reasons)”

VV, you are attacking DU30, and yet are using a Duterte on me: his shock and awe style???. And ad hominem at that? Am surprised. But, I will oblige. First, I don’t know if you have already met DU30 close-up. Well, I have, in fact, twice. I sat in front of him across his desk in his office, and I can tell you first hand, he is not the monster, the sociopath that the internet is now portraying him. And when you see his employees who respect him like a big brother or father, how can he be a psycho?… Read more »

Well, the joke has been analyzed to death by now. But what they are saying now is not the first impression the audience got when they first heard it.

But, I would agree that such jokes should not be delivered to a large audience. It is a joke you hear in bars or board rooms, but not in a political rally. In a way, it was firestorm waiting to happen, and he invited it.

“Duterte probably used his own mind trick (in the same way Navy Seals are trained to be mentally tough)”. Really? I’ve seen more credible spins than this. Nice try anyway.
What’s more likely is that the man carried his folksiness too far. He was skating on thin ice and just fell through.

Add, it’s more likely DU30-BBM mob-power will erupt once Mar is declared the victor, should LP opt to use their last trick up their sleeves: hocus pcos magic machines. They even have “DAANG MATUWID” written on the ballots. I can already smell something fishy.

We’ll have a reverse of Cory’s EDSA People Power. And DU30 will declare a revolutionary government. Exciting times up ahead – let’s see how this goes.

Hope LP does shelve such plan. I have seen the crowds, and they are definitely passionate about something beyond DU30 himself.

I remember the crowds of Erap trying their EDSA3. The difference here is that you see a lot of Middle class people — at least that is what I saw in Makati and Alabang. And by history, successful revolutions are those wherein the middle class participates

I can’t help but imagine Noynoy resorting to something which his father allegedly did should this happen: be absent from the rally itself, covertly bomb the s*** out of his mindless supporters, and blame Duterte or Marcos (as always) for it while posing as if he is humanity’s savior. Of course, he needs to save some mindless supporters and keep them in the dark to be used as reserved weapons so that they can bring this country to chaos. After all, instilling fear in people is one way to gain control of them……
