Anti-Marcos reaction to Sandro Marcos’s Rogue One tweet exposes them as chumps!

With just a four-word tweet, Sandro Marcos, son of Vice-Presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos, attracted all sorts of “mockery” from the anti-Marcos buzzing bees again:

As handily summed up by local media, anti-Marcos people were quick to remind Sandro, that the movie Rogue One is “a story of a rebellion trying to overthrow an oppressive tyrannical empire similar to what happened in the 1986 EDSA revolution.”

The sentiment most common among the reactions seems to follow along the lines of: ”Oh the irony of a Marcos enjoying a movie about rebellion.”

There is no irony here, however; there is only the desperation of the anti-Marcos people to “get one up” over the Marcoses, however trivial or insignificant.

Unfortunately for them, however, it is the anti-Marcos people who end up looking like chumps (not really the first time) in ways they probably can’t even imagine.

First off, comparing the Rogue One rebellion to the 1986 EDSA People Power movement betrays a stubborn attempt to keep romanticizing the latter as a victory of “good against evil”. All it really was, essentially, was a power grab among entrenched political dynasties, a mere substitution of one group of self-interested people for another.

Secondly, mocking Sandro Marcos – or any other member of that clan, for that matter – in no way compensates for the collective failure of the Filipino people to hold the Marcoses accountable for whatever they allegedly did.

Filipinos, the anti-Marcos movement in particular, would do well to remember these.

I guess, in the Philippines, one can’t even enjoy entertainment, and take it at face value, without it being politicized and used against him/her.

Contrary to popular belief, the national sport in the Philippines is not basketball, it’s making issues where they don’t exist.

Did Sandro Marcos have it coming? Should he have “thought before he tweeted”? Actually, everybody should. What’s clear is that the people who didn’t think before tweeting are the anti-Marcos people. What’s worse is looking like morons and not even being aware of it.

It’s that simple, really.

Oh the irony!!! We all know how those Yellowtards will gonna bully him in the end after he’d watched Rogue One & I’d really read their tweet messages. Pero ibahin niyo ako, and I’ll gonna share it to you a link of my tweet message to him and it didn’t contained an anti-Marcos messages unlike those Yellowtards but let’s just say I’d gave him a politically correct advice in which I’d told him that next time instead of watching the latest Star Wars franchise, Rogue One, he should watch a romantic anime film of this year called Your Name so… Read more »

well surprisingly, Your Name (Kimi No Na Wa) is the highest grossing film for 2016 in Japan and beaten the predecessor of Rogue One, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

oh come on FallenAngel. You generally post insightful and intelligent comments, so please don’t use that weasel word ‘allegedly’. It just ruins the whole tone of your article. If you allege that a Filipino has stolen something, you’ll probably be right just by pure chance. It’s like alleging that the sea is wet. What Marcos did was much, much too big to sweep under the carpet. 30 million Filipinos watched him do it. His closest aides and family are quite open about what he did – they know that crime is neither frowned upon nor punished in this country, so… Read more »

These so-called “anti-Marcos” feel like chumps for believing that everything could end well for them. They feel foolish for allowing themselves to be lead into a false sense of security and for letting themselves experience their “own happiness” just to make them “feel good” about their own selfish stupid selves.

IMHO, I like watching movies like these, rather than those stupid garbage shit bruhaha on Failippines media.

@ d-forsaken. I am anti-Marcos because Marcos was a legal genius who laid the foundation for later presidents and their surrounding conspiring co-elite bleeding dry the Filipino People and the Philippine State legally with a great help from the Roman Catholic Church dogma of allowing Filipinos to breed like rabbits. Marcos was the role model of the most corrupt politicians (and they are Fipipinos, genuine pinoys at that ! ) this Earth ever had ! The societal problem of this country reaching pathological levels are the educated and articulate Filipinos who find the most minute microscopic mistakes of their enemies… Read more »

Ah, here’s another awkward tweet message coming from Sandro Marcos. Now he’d asked what Hugot means & those anti-Marcos Filipinos had many replied to his tweet. Just read it & I don’t know if you’ll gonna laugh it or it makes you annoyed.

It’s also because many people still believe in the idiotic belief that “abuse runs in the blood” and being associated by blood makes you guilty. You can still trace some doings of Martial Law to Bongbong Marcos. Sandro Marcos obviously never reached that. Yet some people would like to treat Sandro as if he was a dictator. Unless he is proven to have done something wrong, slamming him like that is injustice.

So if the father stole bread and his son ate it, should the son be imprisoned along with his father?

Compare Kim Jong-Un for Sandro Marcos and/or Noynoy Aquino.

Why weren’t there anti Kim Jong-Un messages or UN sanctions against North Korea.

Sorry guys, the government of the Philippines WILL delete our comments critical to the government just like China’s Communist Party removed comments critical to its regime.

No power for mods, almost no power for admins whatsoever.

That’s some high level of autism, son. No wonder why nobody takes you seriously so you only resort to trolling. Keep it up, fam.
