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 […]

Trillanes and other Duterte critics doomed to fail due to use of false information

Members of the Philippine Opposition are getting desperate. They are down to using their last bullet, which is to paint President Rodrigo Duterte as corrupt. Their allies in mainstream media are trying their best to help drive that message. You can see it in their headlines. “Ombudsman probes Duterte family’s wealth” says one of the […]

Liberal Party epic re-brand fail continues to DOOM the Opposition

The Philippine Liberal Party (LP) don’t seem to learn. They must be using the same lame PR consultants that ran “vice president” Leni Robredo’s personal brand to the ground. Sadly (for them), they come across as infantile in the continued use of religious hocus-pocus and prayerful posturing to style themselves as the “decent” choice. It’s […]

Opposition’s lack of a strong leader and vision secures Duterte’s hold on power

What were the Opposition thinking when they came up with their latest media stunt? It’s an aping of the Hunger Games salute that came across like the Nazi Sieg Heil! salute. Talk about double-whammy fail! If this was attempt at a rebranding to distance themselves from the Yellowtards, it seems they made things worse and […]

Will the next anti-Duterte rally be AWESOME enough for Millennials?

According to various sources, there will be (yet another) protest rally against the government of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte in the coming days. What are these rallyists going to protest? Duterte’s purported authoritarianism? Martial Law in Mindanao? “Killings” related to his “war on drugs”? So what else is new? This is, after all, the era […]

The Philippine Opposition will not succeed against Duterte unless they change strategy

The big question that should be asked of the Philippines’ Opposition is this: What alternative path do you propose? As far as can be observed, the Opposition, led by the Liberal Party, has failed to elevate its discourse above the state it had been in back in 2016 when it lost the Philippines to the […]

Philippine Opposition mounting ‘distraction campaigns’ to bury important national issues

Overheard on my Twitter timeline: Filipinos are an “angry” people. As such, the landscape of political chatter is fertile ground for the Opposition (specifically the cancer within it, the Yellowtard clique) to mount one distraction campaign after another. Whilst reputable thought leaders tackle the hard-hitting issues — like the drug menace, public transport, public health […]

Meeting the parents: #JusticeForKian no longer lies with Duterte’s critics

The problem with how president Rodrigo Duterte’s critics have approached opposition to the anti-drug campaign is that they assert a few things that they have yet to prove a definitive causal link to: a) that the killings are state-sanctioned, and; b) that Duterte himself has encouraged impunity. So when the death of the young Kian […]
