Philippine school books are infested with Yellowtard propaganda!

It is often said, and we are often reminded, that children are amongst the most vulnerable members of our society. They look up to their elders and are keen to learn and please — sponges that have many spaces in their minds and psyches to fill. As adults, we are responsible for the shaping of the future generations and, as such, are accountable for how future adults turn out.

It is unfortunate that, in the Philippines, the youth are politicised at a very early age. In a photo shared by Facebook activist MJ Quiambao Reyes, a page from a textbook used in a Grade 2 social studies class shows the extent to which the Yellow Camp would go to disseminate its propaganda.

Accompanying images of the late former Senator Benigno ‘Ninoy’ Aquino Jr and his son and former President Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino III are text and imagery singing praises about the former’s martyrdom, his relationship with the latter, and a series of leading questions designed to hammer in who they are into the readers’ young minds.

The most disturbing is a poem with the title (translated in English) “Do you know Ninoy?”. The following is the full poem translated in English…

Do you know Ninoy?
He is the father of Noynoy
He gave his life
For his belived country.

He worked and sacrificed
Even while he was imprisoned.
Fighting for change
Even at risk of death.

The heavens mourned
When he was buried.
Thunder rumbled loudly
Lightning clapped sharply.

An important iniative concerned parents and citizens should mount is to begin to evaluate just how much damage had been done to Philippine society by these textbooks.

Observers have long warned that Philippine society suffers a bad case of intellectual bankruptcy. “An admired Filipino economist, based in New York” long ago lamented this deficit in thinking and had this to say about the Philippines’ political “debate”.

When the issues are of some significance, it’s the wrong arguments that prevail, the wrong side wins. Logic and common sense take the backseat to political arguments and the views of the poorly-educated.

Poorly-educated.

Indeed it is less about how much education Filipinos receive and more about the quality of this education. The most highly-regarded skills today (or for that matter, over much of history) mainly involve problem-solving acumen. Professions like engineering and the sciences employ rigourous problem solving frameworks hinged on the scientific method where an objective mind regards and defines problems through un-coloured perspectives. In the arts, it is original and ground-breaking work that delivers the biggest bucks — not re-hashes and, in the case of the Philippines’ popular arts, poor copies of Western concepts.

The trouble with the way Filipino youngsters are raised is that they are taught what to think and not how to think.

Herein this example lies Exhibit A — but one brick in what is likely to be a vast foundation of mediocrity upon which Philippine society has been built and continues to be built.

whenever my daughters have homework regarding ninoy & the aquinos, I tell them ninoy is no hero despite what the book says, and I don’t give a damn if the teacher gives them an X mark for it… I will give them hell if they are given a failing mark for one entire school year just for it

“History is always written by the winners!”

Napoleon once said, “What is history, but a fable agreed upon?” George Orwell, with dismay, writes, “that those who control the present can, to some extent, control knowledge of the past.”

But to Augustine of Hippo, “The truth is like a lion; you don’t have to defend it. Let it loose; it will defend itself.”

Only an Independent Truth Commission composed of historians, sociologists and intellectuals neither identified with the Marcoses or the Aquinos to revisit the Marcos rule, the assassination of Ninoy and triggering events that led to Enrile running terrified to Camp Aquinaldo enlightened the brainwashed generation of Filipinos. The rise of FEM like a phoenix from a villain in the EDSA86 euphoria to a respectable leader to the present generation of Filipinos maybe attributed to an unconscious resistance of the Filipino psyche to common sense lies despite the well funded Yellow propaganda by the post Marcos elite (many of them legendary looters… Read more »

Sounds to me like:

Do you know Kim Jong-il?
He is the father of Kim Jong-un
He gave his life
For his belived country.

He worked and sacrificed
Fighting for change
Even at risk of death.

The heavens mourned
When he was buried.
Thunder rumbled loudly
Lightning clapped sharply.

Hahaha, exactly!

Also, why don’t they teach how ‘Benigno Aquino Sr.’ collaborated with the Japanese invaders & was caught & tried for treason?

Them Ivory Tower Pinoys keep raging over fake news, but few seem to be raging over fake education. I hope they haven’t forgotten about the fake history such as the Code of Kalantiaw, Filipinos supposedly having invented the yo-yo and Armando Lite supposedly having invented the M16 fifle. Plus, Rizal supposedly having written the poem Sa Aking Mga Bata (where people not loving one’s language are compared to smelly fish), but that one was busted by Ambeth Ocampo. We’re still having something like that right here.

This is a true History. Benigno Aquino, Sr. – the father of Benigno Aquino, Jr., and the grandfather of Benigno Simeon Aquino III, established the KALIBAPI Party , during the Japanese occupation of the Philippines. The KALIBAPIs were responsible for the torture and murders of Filipino guerrillas; the rape of Filipino women and many atrocities.

During the liberation of the Philippines. Benigno Aquino, Sr., sought refuge in Tokyo, Japan. He was brought back to the Philippines. He was convicted of Treason; and was sentenced to Death. Gen. MacArthur pardoned him, for the unity of the Filipinos…

The Aquino Cojuangco political axis, the Axis of Greed and Evil, will use anything to cling to power in the Philippines. They used EDSA Fake News. It became Fake History…this Falsehood is now being in the grade school textbooks to Brainwash the young minds of the Filipino Youth. Making them Robots and incapable of critical thinking. These politicalized textbooks, must be Banned in schools. Schools are where we learn to think. Not allowing other people to think for us ! The minds of the young must not be shaped by any political agenda, to promote politicians. Remove the faces of… Read more »

Is this old or new edition? To recall, the Yellows have been loudly bewailing what they refer to as wrong history being taught in schools. Historical revisionism as they claim is the fault of the past generation for failing to properly educate the young about the past, about the dark days of Martial law, about the sacrifices of the heroes who fought to topple Ferdinand Marcos, and the like. If this is new, then this must be the product of their recent protestations. What I know is, this was the way it is since 1986. So their whining has no… Read more »

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.

It’s a totally irony when it comes to the Failippines. Truth is such a bitch, ain’t it?

THE DUTERTE ADMINISTRATION SHOULD CALL ON THE PEOPLE WHETHER TO INCLUDE PLUNDER, RAPE, TREASON, AND OTHER HEINOUS CRIMES COMMITTED TO THE DEATH PENALTY. IF IT’S ONLY REGARDING DRUGS, FAMILIES BEING VICTIMIZED BY OTHER HEINOUS CRIMES WILL TAKE THE LAW INTO THEIR OWN HANDS. ONLY THOSE WHO ARE AGAINST OTHER CRIMES TO BE INCLUDED ARE THOSE AFRAID THEY WILL FALL TO SUCH CRIMES.

The Congress is suppossed to do what the people that elect them tell them to do, not holding them to account is the people’s fault.
