The Philippine Opposition’s sad colonial mentality

It is sad, the way the Philippine Opposition led by the Liberal Party (referred to by many as the “Yellowtards”) has adopted a strategy of running to the West for validation and then using that validation to influence Filipinos. It demonstrates that they are a pale shadow of the political force they are desperately pitching […]

Are Filipinos REALLY offended by Duterte’s quip on how to shoot female NPA combatants?

At one level, the remark made by Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte about what part of the anatomy state forces should aim for whenever they get a female member of the New People’s Army (NPA) within their sights is deeply offensive.

Only an intellectual revolution will reduce the spread of disinformation in the Philippines #FightDisinfo

One thing that can be noted from the various camps in the Philippines’ sad “political debate” is that the starting point of assertions is always one’s political or personal loyalties.

You see […]

The whole trouble with being a former Leni Robredo supporter

Undersecretary for Presidential Communications Lorraine Badoy has gotten herself into a hell of a pickle recently. After asserting in a Senate probe on “fake news” that “vice president” Leni Robredo is a “purveyor of fake news”, she is now being taken to task on two fronts.

It’s not hard to observe everything that’s been in the public consciousness recently, and come to one unavoidable conclusion: the cultural inertia of Filipinos will outlast any presidency.
