After my latest article about President Aquino’s rather desperate attempt to wash his hands of the Mamasapano Massacre, I was asked to further elaborate on certain points I talked about therein. I don’t know if this has already been discussed on this particular website, but I’m gonna go ahead and bring them up again anyway just in case some of you missed it. Truth be told, what’s really sad about typical Pinoys is that majority of them don’t really care that much about history or, even if they do, they probably only know the “theme park” version which is more or less just black and white/good vs. evil fare rather than the reality of it.
Well, before I begin though, let me repeat what I said in my previous article that history is indeed quite relative. For instance, while Abraham Lincoln is lauded as a hero to the American people who brought an end to slavery, the reality is actually somewhat different. Indeed, the freeing of slaves, if anything, can be best thought of as a last-minute decision on the part of President Lincoln as he simply didn’t want to lose the sympathy of his allies. Nonetheless though, as I have stated beforehand, it is ultimately the results that really matter to people today. Abraham Lincoln, whether or not it was in his heart to do so, ended slavery and made the United States the symbol of freedom and progress that it is today.
Okay, back to the Aquinos. Well, the Aquino-sponsored media probably don’t want you to know this, but the truth of the matter is that most of their so-called “achievements” are just stolen ideas or outright lies. In fact, if the Aquinos have any actual legacy, it is essentially their disloyalty to the very people they claim to serve and their tendency to cover their butts with elaborate deception when caught with their pants down.
So, without further ado, allow me to begin:
Benigno Aquino Sr. Collaborated With The Axis Powers
It’s strange you know. When President Aquino went to Japan, he actually went as far as to compare the People’s Republic of China to Nazi Germany. However, if you take a look at his family’s records, nothing screams “Nazi” more than some of the actions of his predecessors.
The truth is, Benigno Aquino Sr. openly collaborated with the Japanese during World War II. He was among those chosen by the Imperial Army of Japan to be one of the puppet leaders of the Philippines along with President Jose P. Laurel at the time. We can assume that while the infamously barbaric soldiers of Japan went about pillaging villages, slaughtering farmers and raping women, Benigno Aquino Sr. simply sat back and enjoyed the view.
Surprisingly enough though, after the war ended, Benigno Aquino Sr. was pardoned by President Ramon Magsaysay and was spared from arrest and execution as was often the case with those who chose to collaborate with the Axis Powers. To put this in perspective, in France, both Philippe Petain and Pierre Laval, two of France’s leaders in World War II were arrested for treason with Laval getting executed for his troubles with Petain only being spared because of his advanced age. Another example would of course be Wang Jingwei, the head of state in China at the time, who became the most hated man in all of China for screwing over his people to the brutal reign of Imperial Japan and, after the war, his name became synonymous to “traitor” among many Chinese.
Benigno Aquino II Was A Troublemaker At Harvard
True enough, Benigno Aquino II, President Aquino’s father did stay at Harvard.
What the media doesn’t tell us however is that he just stayed there as a kind of refugee. He never wrote a book there, he never studied there and he sure as heck wasn’t respected there. He is, for all intents and purposes, no different from the Syrian refugees fleeing their own country and seeking asylum elsewhere. It just so happens that Americans thought that he was kinda smart and decided to let him stay in one of their more prestigious institutions.
However, with little to no gratitude, he had to go and insult the kindness the Americans offered him. Instead of behaving, he went on to recruit people to the Communist cause. In short, instead of being thankful to the Americans for giving him sanctuary, he spat at their generosity.
No wonder the 1987 Constitution refuses to accept foreign teachers. Because if we did, we’d all find out just what kind of ungrateful charlatans the Aquinos really are.
Anyway, I’d like to thank Flippinflips for this tidbit of information…
The Mendiola Massacre
So, people think that Cory Aquino is a saint and that Ferdinand Marcos was a tyrant…
Well, sorry to burst your little bubble but Cory Aquino was indeed involved in the Mendiola Massacre. Of course, while she probably wasn’t there personally, she was nonetheless in command of the men who did the killing. At least up to a dozen farmers were killed and about thirty-nine others were seriously wounded when the personal gunmen of the Aquino administration opened fire on protesters who only wanted to be given what was due to them.
Truth be told, the real reason Cory Aquino probably opposed the Marcos regime wasn’t because of her husband’s untimely death (which is sometimes rumored to have been orchestrated by her of family all along) but because Ferdinand Marcos wanted to distribute the lands of Hacienda Luisita to the farmers who had worked on it for so long.
In the end, when one looks back on the way things went, even if Ferdinand Marcos wasn’t a benevolent leader, Cory Aquino was really no different or probably much worse. If there’s anything she really did right, it was simply her clever manipulation of the media in covering up her mistakes and atrocities. So while Ferdinand Marcos was no angel, this does not at all imply that Cory Aquino was some sort of saint. At the end of the day, Cory Aquino was just another power-hungry politician who was all too willing to kill to get what she wanted.
