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. […]

Imperial Manila ‘experts’ see Martial Law as a bigger enemy than Islamic terrorism

If there is anything that can be gleaned from the way Filipinos have so far responded to the crisis in Marawi, it is that Filipinos remain their own worst enemy. Rather than see the terrorists linked to the Islamic State overrunning Marawi City as the bigger enemy, many have, instead, lashed out at the more […]

Light a Fire Movement: The ultimate hypocrisy of the Anti-Marcos movement

The original anti-Marcos movements were nothing like that of the supposedly peaceful and prayerful “millennials” that make up today’s crop of Martial Law Crybaby activists. The originals seem to have been more of terrorists and involved, among other things, Filipino-Americans allegedly engaged in activities illegal under United States law — conspiring to launch private armies […]

Stupid logic: Filipinos’ shrill whine over the Philippine Constabulary’s return

The prospect of reinstating the Philippine Constabulary (PC) is, as expected, striking fear in the hearts of the usual emo social media mavens. Why?

At the People Power Monument: Anti-Marcos protesters have become a laughingstock

You gotta give credit to the anti-Marcos mob. They came back in their thousand-odd force, this time at the “People Power Monument” on EDSA at its intersection with Temple Drive outside Camp Aguinaldo today. Amongst those leading the charge (so they claim) are representatives of the “Big Three” elite Philippine schools, the University of the […]

Does the Anti-Marcos Movement have an end game?

Following the spectacular flop of last Friday’s anti-Marcos-burial rally at the Luneta, the leaders of a community of Filipino “activists” calling for the Marcos family to be taken to account for the alleged atrocities that happened during “the Martial Law years” continue to soldier on. There is another set of rallies planned over the coming […]

The FAILED November 25 anti-Marcos rally at the Luneta

When will these hipsters learn? Warm bodies out pumping fists in an outdoor love-in versus an alleged social media “troll army” out to “weaponise” the Internet from comfy air-conditioned offices? Anti-Marcos protestors would like to believe the old ways of doing things supposedly representing the righteous camp in this political conflict necessarily triumph at the […]
