Okay, let’s get some things squared away first. Unlike Charles Englund, I’m not a martial law baby, I was born a little later and yes, I’ll accept the criticism that I am indeed probably too young or ignorant to be aware of the Marcos regime’s atrocities and cruelties. I am also not a Manilenyo even though a lot of really upset and unhappy commenters (who are probably suffering from a serious case of hemorrhoids) out there seem to think I am. However, again, I’d like to offer some of my observations regarding the whole issue of having former president Ferdinand Marcos buried among heroes just a few nights back.

Look, while I’m willing to admit that I am indeed a Marcos loyalist, I do fully understand that he was far from perfect. I know that his rather Draconian methods combined with the kind of cruelty inherent in just about every authority in the Philippines creates for a very unflattering image. I understand that some of you or at least some of your loved ones have been victims of the Marcos regime’s harsh rule and I can only offer you my sincerest sympathies. But I will also say that Ferdinand Marcos, at the end of the day, was just another man, flawed, broken and ever vulnerable to temptation. I will say that while his rule did indeed involve atrocities, I will also say that when he first began, he at least probably had good intentions.

Anyway, so as not to rub you the wrong way, allow me to tell you another story about my past and the wonderful people I shared it with…

My grandfather was somewhat particular about what I watched on TV. He allowed me freedom to watch what I wanted, but he would often speak out against shows he didn’t like or didn’t believe was appropriate for a child my age. For instance, grandfather was fiercely critical of my relatives who allowed their children to watch shows that had strong themes of sex and violence.

As you can probably imagine, there were a lot of things I was barred from watching and one of them was Silence of the Lambs and the Hannibal film franchise as a whole. I was 16 when my old man decided I could at least watch Silence of the Lambs and watch a then young and attractive (and still presently attractive) Jodie Foster outsmart a serial killer who victimized women to take their skin with the help of a vicious serial killer played by none other than the talented Sir Anthony Hopkins. Ah, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, how you shape my deeply disturbed mind to this very day.

With my grandfather now gone to take his place among his friends and family in some happier world beyond and with me now of age, I can watch pretty much what I want. Heck, I’m on the last episode of the first season of the Hannibal TV show and plan on watching the remaining two seasons with the free time I’ll have this Yuletide Season. However, even now I take to heart the discussion I had with my grandfather regarding the Hannibal books by Thomas Harris and the various films and TV shows made from them.

“No matter how nice and gentlemanly he may seem, Hannibal Lecter is and always will be a murderer!” my grandfather said to my 16-year-old self. “And a vicious and disgusting one at that. He murdered young and innocent college girls to steal and eat their organs, murdered police officers who tried to stop him and simply doesn’t see people as other people. He sees other people as animals to be slaughtered and devoured and only those who can somehow impress him like Agent Clarice Starling or Will Graham are ever really spared from his demonic appetite and even then it’s still likely that he can and will kill and eat them if they bore or annoy him enough.”

“However,” my grandfather went on. “When compared to some of his more dangerous enemies, Hannibal Lecter comes off or is made to come off as almost heroic. Take for instance Mason Verger who raped his own sister and preyed on innocent children or James Gumb who tortured and skinned women and compare them to the nigh noble Hannibal Lecter who acts by a twisted code of honor and is almost always polite and courteous to his guests and people he likes. This makes Hannibal Lecter sympathetic but never forget that he is as vicious a killer as the other murderers in the story. It just so happens that he’s been safely (relatively anyway) contained and is willing to cooperate with the authorities.”

So alright, I know some of the grievances of Anti-Marcos protesters out there are well-grounded and that the victims of the Marcos regime should also be given justice but, when compared to the incompetence of the previous president, the Marcoses seem almost angelic. Look, I know it sounds harsh but look at just how terrible things became because of that spoiled brat Noynoy. Traffic became hellish and the stupid fish-faced bastard seems to think it was a “sign” of actual progress.

This doesn’t even take into account the many avoidable tragedies that took place in the last six years such as the Luneta Hostage Crisis, the Yolanda Tragedy, the SAF 44 Massacre and the Kidapawan Killings just to name a few. And where was Fish-Face in all of these? There he was, grinning like all the death and sorrow were the coolest things ever! Like all the weeping widows, the bawling orphans, the mangled corpses and the heartbroken masses were the funniest and most awesome sight he had ever seen! And what has Fish-Face ever said about all that happened:

  • “It’s Marcos’ fault!”
  • “It’s Arroyo’s fault!”
  • “I wasn’t informed!”

Guys please, I know some of you don’t agree with me and I know a lot of you are probably angry now, but hear me out here. Before everything blew up in the past six years, I didn’t care one bit about where former President Marcos should be buried. But with the way Fish-Face screwed everything up, I’d rather side with the alleged “baddies” who are at least willing to cooperate for the greater good than the family who have thought and done nothing for anyone but themselves.

 

I have a theory that if Fish-Face didn’t generate so much hate for himself and his family, Ferdinand Marcos would never have been buried at LNMB. In fact, I can tell you now that most people wouldn’t have cared one bit about where he’d be buried if Nonoy had just done his job right. If anything, majority of Filipinos probably allowed Ferdinand Marcos to be buried at LNMB to spite the Aquino family and wipe that smile off of Nonoy’s drooling and disgusting face! Because after everything Noynoy and the LP has done for the Filipino people, the Marcoses come off as at least responsible and competent.

  1. The Fish Face, Pnoy Aquino, may be likened to “Hanibal Lecter” …Aquino rejoiced, at the grief, suffering and sorrow of other people.

    If there were brutalities during the Martial Law years of Marcos Sr.; we should blame Fidel Ramos and Juan Ponce Enrile, for these brutalities. They Managed Marcos’ Martial Law. They jailed people; and probably tortured them !

    The Supreme Court had already decided for the burial of Marcos. But, the Aquino Cojuangco political axis, released their secret weapon : HAKOT DEMONSTRATORS. The Hacienda Luisita is soon to be given to the rightful owners. This is the reason the Aquino Cojuangco clan is doing everything to sow discord among people. The issue of “Marcos is not a Hero”, is just a diversion. Their real intent is to keep their Hacienda Luisita !

    1. No, he is NOT Mr. Toro. I like Hannibal Lecter. If anything Nonoy is more like Mason Verger or James Gumb. I have a mancrush on Dr. Lecter.

      Besides, Fish-Face isn’t even COMPETENT for Heaven’s sake so don’t compare him to Hannibal!

    2. Kaya payag na akong malibing si marcos ,kasi ay ginagamit ng mga Aquino sa politika. mas magnanakaw ang mga ito.nasaan na yung nakuha ng PCGG under Bautista,kinatay na at yung mga corporation ay pinagutang ng mga kamag anak ni cory sa GSIS para maging kanila..puhunang lugaw
      Dahil si Cory ang guarrantor,nabayaran ba ang inutang…paris ng nangyari sa hacienda

  2. Okay, Pnoy Aquino does not eat men’s liver with fava beans, like Hannibal Lecter…

    Jodie Foster, the pretty actress, who played detective, is a lesbian…a crazy man shot, the late, Pres. Reagan, who had crush on her and to impress her…

  3. There are times when one Yellow nutcase would like to hang the whole country and finish the farce.

    After all, they’re all stupid and idiots.

  4. I think Marcos is no hero absolutely but he grows to be one and even become an angel if he is compared to the blunders, idiocies and lunacies of the mother and son tandem.

    1. FM could have come back any time he wanted to.The Marcos family came back with all their money and never really left.The Aquino’s and Marcos families have concoted this scheme behind all Filipino’s backs and are having a really good fuckin laugh.The only bad thing was when the CIA whacked Benigno at the airport and made it look like Marcos did it. If the Aquino’s did not know who was responsible for Ninoy’s murder there would have been a real blood-fued going on:Aquino VS. Marcos, but the two families knew who did it, and so did not go after each other. You know, seeing this and figuring it out,one would think that Filipino’s would be able to ascertain what is happening, BUT THEY DON’T GET IT. They actually NEVER figured it out, its plain as fuckin day. BUT NOPE, Filipino’s just don;t get it.
      SHEESH, a dumber electorate could never possibly be hoped for.

      1. I think you’re utterly misinformed.

        Actually, FM even sent emissaries to allow him to go home to the Philippines in order to face the charges against him in a court. But Cory banned him on returning; proven that she ruled on fear and hatred of Marcos. I even mentioned a number of times that they’re ready to settle the money issue. But the anti-Marcos whiners, the Yellowtards and even people like you would never listen. Thay is because your hissy fits and propaganda would also end as well. Is that it?

        1. THATS WHAT YOU HEARD,FROM WHERE? AND, LIKE AN IDIOT,YOU BELIEVE IT,BWAH HA HA!!! ‘EMMISSARIES’, YEAH? WHO? LETS SEE THE STAMPED PLANE TICKETS, YOU JACK-ASS !!! YOU STILL BELIEVE THE US vs. THEM ROUTINE. The ‘I AM A ROMUALDEZ, YOU ARE AN AQUINO’, NONSENSE? ITS BEEN USED TO DIVIDE THE COUNTRY AGAINST ITSELF FOR ALMOST FOUR DECADES BECASUE OF IDIOTS LIKE YOU BELIEVING IT! HOW OLD ARE YOU?WERE YOU THERE,OR IN FUCKIN DIAPERS AT THE TIME?
          CORY AQUINO RAN NOTHING! SHE HAD A LIMITED SAY IN ANYTHING THAT WENT ON.IN OTHER WORDS:SHE DID WHAT WTF SHE WAS TOLD, YOU,APPARENTLY, HAVE NEVER FIGURED THAT OUT.

          MARCOS MONEY NEVER LEFT THE PHILIPPINES AND THE FAMILY HAD TO WAIT A DECENT ENOUGH TIME TO MAKE A ‘DIGNIFIED’ COME BACK, IT WAS ALL A FUCKIN RUSE, YOU MORON!

          NOW, EVEN I AM LAUGHING AT YOU, GET IT? HARDY HAR HAR….YOU FUCKIN IDIOT.

        2. @TROLLY TROLL TROLL:

          Replying in caps locks makes you totally butthurt with this one. And the jokes on you. because most of everything you’ve said is from the biased media or something.

          And please, you’re not laughing at me. You’re laughing at yourself because deep inside, you’re choking on your own tears.

        3. This is no laughing matter, son…

          “…[BongBong] is going to inherit”?? There are GLOBAL FREEZE orders on all assets of the Marcoses acquired prior to 1986 not only coming from the PHL and that international Anti-Money Laundering body based in Paris, but also by the US, as they have done on the Shah of Iran, etc etc, or are you ignorant about this?. And those orders have NOT been lifted; so, how can the Marcoses be in control of so called wealth? But, you seem to know some billions the Marcoses are hiding in their garage, this or that warehouse, this or that bank, but you don’t want to spell them out; WHY IS THAT???

          Cory and Jovy Salonga hired some of the best bounty hunters in the world with the suspicion that FM hid his bank accounts under fictitious names, but PCGG has not been open how much these experts recovered and what was the ROI of these projects. WHY IS THAT???

          The PCGG have been hiring many legal experts, and they come and go. Some time in the 90s, there were news coming out that some of these legal minds have suddenly had the financial capacities to build mansions in Alabang and other exclusives enclaves. An investigation was initiated, but soon everybody, including the media, forgot about this. WHY IS THAT???

          Of course, what has been plundered has to returned!! An agency, an ENTIRE agency, has been created SPECIFIC just for the Marcoses, and not for other alleged plunderers. But, where is the performance HISTORY of PCGG? Why have they not been explicit about this? And you want the assets returned to a body that has not been that opened and honest to the public??? WHY IS THAT???

          PCGG claims to have recovered four billion Dollars. Why has not one of Martial Law victims been paid even if the government already has this much money under their control. WHY IS THAT???

          Most of these four billion were recovered in the 90s. The #NeverAgain keep on recycling the stories, as if it was the PNoy admin who did the job. WHY IS THAT???

          They claim six billion Dollars are still to be recovered. What is the basis of this estimate? They must have a basis, and with the global freeze still holding, the whole system is very much stacked AGAINST the Marcoses. So, why have they not recovered them after 30 years, YES AFTER fucking LONG 30 years. It must therefore be a complicated legal matter. And your simple mind think it is a simple matter. WHY IS THAT???

          FM from Hawaii kept sending emissaries, and continuously at that, to Cory. The emissaries had only one message: he was willing to face the accusations in the courts. If Cory agreed we probably would have a clearer picture of what they call the “ill gotten wealth”, or maybe not. But, it would probably have been a better, if not the best, effort, instead of shuffling today through the mountain of papers that a dead person could no longer explain. This is now water under bridge because we now understand Cory operated under fear and hatred of Marcos. But with that mistake, which really shows her lack of responsibility to the people and which made things difficult thereafter, the Yellows would now say: “why are you making things difficult, Marcoses?” But, it is the Yellows who made, and are making, things difficult. So, WHY IS THAT???

          For propaganda purposes??? But with that, the Yellows are instead trumpeting their failures in the last 30 years. So, WHY IS THAT???

          If FM was really that evil as they want to portray him, would he pass on such assets to his family whose members would be the very first ones to be investigated? They better be consistent, is he so evil or not? If FM is really that manipulative, then the wealth must be with cronies, isn’t it? So far, they got some from the Benedictos, Disinis, etc, and Security Bank, Allied Bank, etc., but not much more from Danding, JPE, etc. Why has the effort stopped? Is it because the Yellows are now in bed with these very cronies? Some say there is no way to recover now these wealth because EDSA1 has basically released the cronies from their responsibilities and accountabilities to FM. WHY IS THAT???

          The experts now embedded with the Yellows probably know that people are barking on wrong tree by attacking the Marcoses: “return the money”. Why not also: “CRONIES, return the money!!” ??? WHY IS THAT???

          Marcoses keep on asking why. They keep on saying they have so far complied with ALL final and executory rulings from the courts, but the NeverAgain will not listen. WHY IS THAT???

          Are the Yellows interested in resolving the issue, or not? Is it because once it is resolved, they could no longer have their girly fits, and propaganda?? WHY IS THAT???

          And, you are asking BLOGGERS to write about this so complicated a subject matter?? When no respectable legal mind has even written about this comprehensibly??? And yet, would devour and promote a book written by a crackpot?? WHY IS THAT???

          Is this about covering up a more profound failure in the last 30 years??? So, they can continue with their impunity?? PNoy will leave his successor a debt of USD 130 plus Billion, of which USD about 89 Billion is directly attributable to his decisions in the last five years. ADB has already said that on CCT alone, there has been a leakage of 40%. But never mind 40% for purposes of conservative estimates, let us go just for 10%. 10% of 89 Billion is 8.9 Billion. FM left Cory USD 28 Billion debt. They claim FM got USD 10 big B. How is that possible when he had so many infrastructures in 20 years still very much unmatched in the last 30 years. Where is their estimate coming from? And you ask us to worry about a past which even lawyers and investigators are having a hard time untangling when there is an ON-GOING crime right in our time and our very eyes?? WHY IS THAT???

        4. @DIO ,ALL CAPS DOESNT MEAN THAT ,YOU STILL HAVENT MADE AN INTELLIGENT STATEMEBT DIO, YOU GOT NOTHING IN THAT ASSHAT OF YOURS EXCEPT A BOX OF ROCKS.

        5. @DIO ,ALL CAPS DOESNT MEAN THAT ,YOU STILL HAVENT MADE AN INTELLIGENT STATEMEBT DIO, YOU GOT NOTHING IN THAT ASSHAT OF YOURS EXCEPT A BOX OF ROCKS.

          I ALREADY have made intelligent statements while you love to keep on throwing rocks on everyone with your own brand of whining, moaning, and bitching. Something that a psychopath will do. Go figure.

    2. @lardy. A Truth Commission to get the bottom of the truth on what really happened during those Marcos years and the most important of all the real truth how Marcos was ousted for this generation and generations of Filipinos to come.

      It is they those post-Marcos leaders who hid the truth and it is they that brainwashed a generation of Filipinos that it is really a tragedy that the millennial generation are cynical of the kind of leaders we have.

      Only a DU30 can lead this kind of an impartial Truth Commission because he is a product of a Marcos influenced father and a mother who was a die hard Cory supporter.

      DU30 in one of his interviews mentioned that this country is a victim or is being hostaged by the the Aquino-Marcos family feud.

      And, of course, the oligarchs can always switch their loyalty on whoever is in power to protect the business interests at the expense of the great suffering majority.

    3. lardy
      That decision is a part of . onlyphil foreign poilcy and Uncle Sam has the power to decide..Cory is only a US subordinate. She only follows order imperialist

  5. @ Grimwald, OK ,Here we go…blaming the outgoing administration for what is now happening. OMG, its the FLIP coming out in you. Every six years this happens.

      1. SYMPATHY? Look, based on previous leader’s time after office,GMA, E-CRAP etc…:None went to jail(GMA was NEVER IN JAIL, and was NEVER in that hospital room,NEVER),none gave any of what they stole back to the treasury, SO WTF does Aquino need sympathy for? What Filipino’s FAIL to understand is that the voice of the people doesn’t matter. Nothing is done without the say of the Oligarchs, and that is it.They control everything…The AFP,the NBI,Justice Dept.,Congress,Chief Executive,Supreme Court,EVERYTHING!!!! These just mentioned mutts are suppossed top do as the PEOPLE SAY, BUT NEVER DO. and ,worse, they laugh at the ‘MASSA’ and throw them crumbs and say to each other:”Look,these dogs are grateful for the crumbs we toss them from our half-eaten plates after we are done.They are dogs.”. and Filipino’s aren’t even MAD, FUCK, they aren’t even clued into any of this.and THAT IS WHY: NO FUTURE, NO FUTURE, NO FUTURE FOR YOU !!!!!
        NO FUTURE, NO FUTURE, NO FUTURE FOR YOU.

        Ever hear that one? Johnny Rotten was really onto something! but he was dismissed because of what he looked like.

  6. STOP and everyone blame yourselves for this no matter what side of the issue you represent. Martial law ended and nobody cared enough to address Marcos right to bury in the hero cemetery. In America we had a US army soldier perform the worst terrorism act by a American in America. The minute it was discovered that he war veteran, people immediately demanded that he not receive his rights for a full military burial with honors and his benefits taken away. The conversation and the protest keep going until a law was passed. After the martial law era, the conversation and the protest stopped, you did not care back all this time. DO NOT PRETEND TO CARE NOW.
