A spoiled brat raised by helicopter parents. That’s really all that Krisel Mallari is. Krisel failed a very fundamental people skill that makes all of us social beings — an ability to be self-aware and respectful. She has shown that she is incapable of applying a mature perspective towards balancing her personal grievances with the fact that she shared those graduation rites with other members of her class. She simply ruined the experience for others — a once-in-a-lifetime occasion that will go down for them as a sad unfortunate event.
Was Krisel a victim of injustice? Perhaps. But the graduation ceremony was not the right place to attempt to rectify it. File a complaint with the proper authorities maybe. But at least let the others have their pleasant day being seen off by an institution where they spent their formative years.
What is really cringe-to-the-max is the way these Leftist groups so predictably swooped in and turned this case into yet another “freedom of speech” issue. What is really bad is the triteness of the words in their ho-hum rhetoric…
This censorship is not alien to Filipino students. In fact, censorship is part of the school’s fascism and repressive ways to curtail students’ constitutional and democratic rights. Checking students’ commencement speeches does not simply mean checking the syntax and grammar of speeches. Checking speeches has been funneled to “screening” speeches. The matter of all matters is very simple: school officials screen, not check, speeches to ensure that nothing against the school will be manifested by the students…
Ugh! Trust the National Union of Students in the Philippines (NUSP) to bore us with words like “fascism” and “constitutional and democratic rights”. And, get a load of this ululation…
The student group urged all students to expose injustices in their schools and to use the “hard-earned” freedom of expression and organization to serve the Filipino people.
Jesus Christ Santo Niño de Cacao! It’s a frickin’ high school speech for chrissakes! Who let these idiots out of their cages anyway?? Mamundok na lang kayo!
Watch the video of Krisel Mallari addressing her graduating class at the Sto Nino Parochial School and tell us what you think:
Obviously Krisel’s freedom of speech was not “hard-earned” as she evidently grew up in a family that served food for her fat ego on a silver platter.
