The Yellowtards are an annoying bunch of fake and obsolete Opposition leaders

Over the six-year rule of former Philippine President Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino III, we at Get Real Post used to be continuously asked why we are so against Aquino. My personal response to that is that he represents everything that is wrong with the Filipino. This makes sense considering that GetRealPhilippines.com — the mothership of […]

The Problem with “Awa” or Sympathy for Drug Users

This woman’s picture made the rounds with her rather questionable message, “I’am a drug user, will you kill me? #break the stigma.” Let me guess what she means: illegal drug use is should not be seen as a bad thing, and that it is being used as an excuse or false reason to kill someone. […]

September 21 ‘anti-tyranny’ rally in hindsight: No cause to be a ‘rebel’

The only thing worse than a keyboard “warrior” is a street rally “warrior”. These pretend warriors insult the sacrifices of soldiers and police officers for whom risk of life and limb is just another day at the office. In the aftermath of the rather underwhelming September 21 protest rally, there was that usual spate of […]

To CONQUER their future, Filipinos need to forget the past and get over Martial Law Butthurt

Martial Law crybabies like emphasizing the past. They lament the lack of “accurate” education on the “Martial Law era” and rally around slogans like “Never Forget” and “Never Again”. To be fair, memory of hurt is important so that lessons are learnt. If we don’t remember being burnt we won’t know enough to avoid fires. […]

To every Filipino ‘activist’ slogan, always ask: ‘And then what?’

The thing with “activist” slogans proliferating in the lead up to that big 21st September rally being hyped all over social media is they all express a call to “stop” or “end” something. They are so the same and so unoriginal that you can list them all here and kind of forget which timeframe or […]

“Fashion” Mentality Damaged the World of Causes

So called social media “activists” these days seem all about putting someone down. For example, when Cynthia Villar called out the problem of eating so much rice, people just started ranting angrily against her, instead of bringing up more intellectual objections and pertinent suggestions. Another is peppering people who supported Rodrigo Duterte or Donald Trump […]

Filipinos are only good at being afraid of Martial Law and not much else

There are things worse than being under the sort of Martial Law former President Ferdinand Marcos oversaw in the 1970s — like being invaded by a foreign army, being struck by a killer earthquake or cyclone, being genetically mutated by years of exposure to diesel fumes, being stabbed to death by a drug-crazed loser, or […]

Filipinos Being “Emotion Junkies” Keeps Filipino Society Backward

One of the weirdest things from Filipinos is their transfixation on emotion, as I mentioned in my article about the raucous pursuit of highs. I remember when eating at a fast-food restaurant one time, I saw students doing a school project. One girl held up a paper-plate clock she made, and said “ang lungkot tingnan […]
