Inquirer Editor and Leni Robredo team up in futile effort to talk up EDSA ‘revolution’ remembrance

True to form, no less than the Inquirer Editor himself gave out prime space today to Vice President Leni Robredo’s supposed thought leadership on all things politics. Lamenting how “President Duterte appears to have green-lighted the downplaying of the anniversary celebration of the Edsa revolt,” the Editor quoted the VP’s latest thoughts on the matter…

“Moving on and forgetting may leave us in danger of making the same mistakes all over again,” warned Vice President Leni Robredo, who underscored the importance of reverence for the past to “ensure quality of direction in our future.”

As if missing the irony that flew way over her head, Robredo, yet again, fails to understand that the only “never again” slogans ringing the loudest and rippling the furthest today refers to the Yellow regime that blighted much of the last 30 years of Philippine politics. The massive shift from emo rhetoric to the hardened crack leadership of today represents widespread disillusionment over the immense empty promise that was the Yellow reign — one that Robredo now fancies herself to be leader of.

Indeed, if there is anyone to blame for the ascendancy of Duterte’s administration today and the robust following it commands, it is the leadership of the Philippines’ Liberal Party who, over much of their watch, turned Philippine-style liberalism from a potent political brand to a sad obsolete relic of the 20th Century. The institutionalised hypocrisy with which the Aquino-Cojuangco clan hijacked the 1986 EDSA “people power revolution” and fashioned it around heroic images of themselves and their clique of cheerleaders broadcast over complicit big corporate media channels simply caught up with the routine lying that had become the norm.

Unfortunately for Robredo she has big Yellow-branded shoes to fill to seriously fancy herself leader of today’s “Opposition”. Sadly she has neither the brain nor the statesmanship chops to fulfill that aspiration. She remains laughably inept at public speaking which is consistently in a style characterised by a cringe-worthy yammer that degenerates into mere colegiala-grade Taglish within the first minute after her trap first opens.

What the Editor of the Inquirer does not seem to get yet is that no amount of historical emo poetry waxed about an “evil” 1970s empire that Filipinos need to continue to “fight” against will undo the damage that Robredo and her ilk had wrought on their once powerful political brand.

The fact that the yellows prefer color to the flag shows their lack of respect and patronage for the Philippines and the Filipinos. It is interesting that their rabid followers just cannot see through this fake aura of patriotism. Stupid is as stupid does. That’s what should describe the believing yellow minions’ adoration for a political entity that still feels relevant, whose rise to power resulted from brainwashing and pretense. It is much desired that it just goes into deep sleep and never ever awakens.

Only idiots without common sense buy Leni Robredo’s act. The minute she thought of joining LP and her repeated mudslinging and her illogical pinning of sins at Marcos’ son says a lot about her thinking process. The list could go on, but churning out insults at somebody that clueless seems pointless for now. I cringe at their audacity which seems to be emboldened by the fact that they are supported by local and int’l propaganda machinery that could still shape perceptions esp. of those vulnerable to disinformation. Plus, they could easily win the elections with those automated machines. Looking back,… Read more »

EDSA was a U.S./C.I.A. work to remove the late Pres. Marcos Sr. It is already in the declassified information in the C.I.A. archives, obtained from the “Freedom of Information”. We should dig deeper on the roles of: Fidel Ramos, Juan Ponce Enrile, the Roman Catholic Church, Cardinal Sin, the Aquino Cojuangco political axis. EDSA has the same coup d’ etat planning of the Turkey’s U.S./C.I.A. recent failed coup d’ etat against Pres. Erdogan of Turkey. This time, the Turkish people smelled the trick; and supported Pres. Erdogan. Leni “The Bobo” Robredo is a Puppet of the Aquino Cojuangco political axis.… Read more »

One can talk good and shower down roses, but it’s the receiver that has to walk through the thorns, and all its false expectations.

When are the Aquinos/Cojuancos going to obey the court order and hand over Hacienda Luisita? What is/are their excuse(s) for not having done so by now?
