Here is why Martial Law Cryababies are unable to move on…

The best revenge is success. So when someone does you wrong, pick yourself up, spend the next couple of years getting rich, then come back and slap your wads of dollars across that asshole’s face.

I realise that this is the lesson that the now-famous viral photo of that girlette with the placard that goes “Kay crush di ako makamove on paano pa kaya kay MARCOS” sends across. The reason Filipinos cannot move on from the butthurt that continues to persist three decades after former President Ferdinand Marcos was ousted in that “revolution” is that they still lack the wads of cash that convincingly proves that the Philippines is actually better off after the “Marcos years”.

Interestingly, the girl in the photo nailed the key parallel between the noisy angst of the Martial Law Crybabies and the lament of the heartbroken and those whose love is unreciprocated. Martial Law Crybabies only have their quaint slogans, their tired old protest rallies, and their hipster sense of entitlement to “justice” through which they can vent their tragic political heartache. Similarly, for those whose crushes never materialised into actual romantic romps in the sack, they have their “hugot lines” and drinking sprees with their confidantes to assuage a lack of proof that there are, indeed, “many other fish in the sea”.

To the latter, the venerable modern-day philosophers of the 1970s, The Hotdog, sing about the only real cure to romantic heartache. The girlette in the photo should take this bit of advise that harks, quite ironically, from those “evil” Martial Law years…

Noon ay crush na crush kita, hindi mo ako pinapansin
Ang gusto mo’y Assumptionista, wala kang time sa akin

Ang sabi mo pa nga (HOW CHEAP NAMAN PARE! NAKU, SHE’S SO BADUY!)
Ang puso ko’y dinurog mo, ang puso ko’y dinurog mo, sinaktan at
binitin

HAOOM, HAOOM – Behh, buti nga, behh buti nga
Ngayon ay bold star na ako, siguro tumutulo ang laway mo
Behh, buti nga, behh, buti nga, behh, behh, behh, behh buti nga!

Draw the analogy from that and ask ourselves: can Filipinos sing a similar tune directed back at that era of the The Hotdog’s heyday? Is Philippine society measureably better than it was during the Martial Law years?

In much the same way that it is difficult to move on from the sting of a snub by a crush until you could find a boylette to take selfies with while engaging in pillow talk to post on Facebook, it is difficult to move on from “the Martial Law years” until your country has extricated itself from its wretched state.

These hipster “activists” need to realise that it is a lack of evidence in the eyes of Filipino voters that the Philippines is a better country today after 30 years of Yellow rule that ultimately cast doubt upon the old narrative that the Marcoses and those “Martial Law years” were all bad. No amount of sloganeering, rallying, and corporate-Media-sponsored propaganda will change the reality that the Philippines had essentially remained unchanged since the ouster of Marcos in 1986.

That the Philippines failed to prosper over 30 years of Yellow-branded “democracy”, perhaps, stands as arguable proof that the cause of Philippine poverty was not a lack of “freedom” nor the plunder allegedly perpetrated by the Marcoses. For the evidence seems to show that the abundant freedom of the post-Marcos years did not translate to economic prosperity nor did the institutionalised plunder of the Philippines’ coffers end with the fall of the Marcos regime.

  1. poor young lady and children.. kaya lalong naging BOBO,MANGMANG, IDIOT, STUPIDO, KAMOTE AT TAE ANG LAMAN NG INYONG MGA UTAK. ANO BA ANG PINAKAIN SA INYO NG AMO NINYONG MGA ZOMBIES.. KAWAWA KAYO ALIPIN KAYO NG MGA HUDAS AT TRAYDOR SA ATING BAYAN…PATHETIC…

  2. The most difficult aspect of moving on is accepting that the other person already did.

    The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.

    1. D,

      “The most difficult aspect of moving on is accepting that the other person already did.”

      isnt that exactly what happened and is happening in USA (and other countries)?

      People who now voted for Trump are just crying a river not being able to adjust and not adapt to new circumstances.
      Instead they should look at themselves how they can make themselves ‘attractive’ again to find a different line of work. They are so in-flexible to new circumstances. They are not very pro-active. Instead all they do is cry and whine.

  3. BUT, the other side of the coin is: MARCOS supporter’s are buying into the same fight, except on the other side. SO WTF R U KIDDING? YOU JUST WANT THE MARCOS SIDE TO WIN, YOU ARE PART OF THE SAME ARGUMENT AND CAN BE A CALLED A CRY-BABY AS WELL!

    THE FACT IS: MARCOS WAS ACROOK, AQUINO IS A CROOK, EVERY POLITICIAN IN THE PHILIPPINES SINCE 1948 HAS BEEN A CROOK. THERE IS ONE DIFFERNCE BETWEEN ALL OF THEM. AND THAT IS :MARCOS CREATED MARTIAL LAW ,HE SAYS IT WAS TO ‘SAVE THE REPUBLIC’, THE TRUTH MAY BE MORE LIKE HE DID IT TO FACILITATE HIS THIEVERY AND SILENCE/GET RID OF HIS DETRACTORS.

    What MARCOS ACTUALLY DID is the what makes his reign different. That difference is what Filipino’s have to decide if it is worthy of bestowing any honors on the guy. ME ? I sau NO WAY. MARCOS murdered his enemies and did away with freedoms the Filipinopeople enshrined in a constitution, and he did it with the stroke of a pen that he had no right to actually write. On that account alone .Marcos rates a big ‘TYRANT’ in my book. He thru Philippine Democracy in the garbage, and for that he gets a heroes burial? NO WAY !!! That negates all he may done that was positive,WIPES IT ALL OUT !!!

      More like a half-truth on that part. You love to mention about he murdered his enemies yet you get the likes of Ramos and Enrile get scoot free. You mention about “he did away with freedoms the Filipinopeople enshrined in a constitution” w/o ever realizing that after he left, the people are free but stupid. You’re calling Marcos a ‘tyrant’ which is a half-truth but you’re also totally fine about the tyranny of the post-Marcos people by making their own countrymen stupid.

      And please, his burial at the LNMB is in accordance to the law and not on your feelings. That is because he’s a former soldier and a former President, not a hero. Gawd, you love to overrate so much to satiate your own senseless rage.

      1. The fool also mentioned that “he did it with the stroke of a pen that he had no right to actually write”…… I guess he doesn’t know that it has the approval of congress… and for Congress to approve that, it has to meet constitutional requirements…. baka akala nya basta na lang pumirma si Marcos…. hahaha

    2. There are three (3) pillars of your BUTT HURT’s regarding Marcos.

      1. Cory Aquino
      2. Media
      3. PCGG

      They FAILED to provide the necessary ‘justice’ you CRYBABIES were looking into for thirty (30) long years.

  4. Money can not buy Class or real Love.It can buy pale imitations of both, but not the real thing.Both are necessary to make a difference in a disgraced situation.MARCOS did not need to go anywhere and get rich and come back and ‘slap that assholes face with the dollars’…..MARCOS WAS SO ARROGANT and PROTECTED he did not even take all of his money with him. Marcos hid his money right in front of the Philippines people’s faces, and a lot of it was waiting for him when he got permission from the USA/CIA to go back to the Philippines.Marcos did have a lot hidden across international borders just in case things in the Philippines went badly and his assets were conficated. BUT MARCOS had so much money from stealing literally everything the country had for 20 years that he can pay/paid off everybody. Marcos could never be convicted in a Philippine court,and maybe even an International court,because he has more money that many International Corporations.

    1. I want to repeat, you’re utterly misinformed and at the same time, some of your statements are misleading.

      BUT MARCOS had so much money from stealing literally everything the country had for 20 years that he can pay/paid off everybody. Marcos could never be convicted in a Philippine court,and maybe even an International court,because he has more money that many International Corporations.

      For the nth time: while he was in Hawaii, he even sent emissaries to Cory with the same message: he wants to go back to face the charges against him in a court. But it was Cory’s fault for she banned him from returning to the Philippines, meaning that she ruled in fear and hatred of Marcos.

      And hate to break it to you – that ‘so much money’ that he had is nothing but peanuts compared to how much post-Marcos figures and personalities had: it’s in the trillions, including smuggling. Of course, you’re fine with your “Who cares? At least it’s not Marcos LOL” nonsense. Even most of the money and assets were currently frozen. So what will you want them to do?

      Coming up another ridiculous statement with caps lock on it and you lose your credibility.

  5. These millennials were brainwashed by the Aquino Conjuangco political axis propaganda machine. All they know, is Marcos Sr., was the personification of evil; horror stories were told about Martial Law; textbook were in our schools about the evil of Martial Law.

    Why would they not go to Fidel Ramos and Juan Ponce Enrile…these two people are still alive; and played vital roles during Martial Law…. Make them answer for the evils done, during Martisl Law !

    The schools are even politicized by the Aquino Cojuangco political axis propaganda machine. It is like during the NAZI regime in NAZI Germany. There were Hitler Youths…these YellowTard idiots, are like the Hitler Youths, in NAZI Germany. They are YellowTard Youths !

    They prefer to wallow in the past, instead of moving on. It has been more than 30 years, since Marcos Sr. is gone. What has these Aquino Conjuangco political axis accomplished for our country ? Feudal Oligarchs continued to rule our country; massive corruption thru : DAP, PDAF; Pork Barrel Bribery; NARCO Politics and NARCO Republic; massacres and murders unsolved; Hacienda Luisita still in the hands of Aquino and Cojuangco clan; Land Reform program, not implemented; etc…

    These YellowTard Youths do not think. They are Aquino’s Robots !

  6. That bad analogy chosen by the protester reflected the priorities of people these days. Personal pleasures, making too much of mundane stuff, focusing on the emotional over the intellectual. The latter probably explains very well their flawed thought process for handling political issues as well. Thanks to this, we see a lot of reactions that are mostly hormones and very little brain. Translated to how people act in their lives, that’s how we have a backward society.

  7. Those protesters get what they deserve. Some are abetted, some willing to promote hate and dwell on negativity. It’s going to be on them, ultimately. Ika nga, feeding the bad wolf-within themselves and the political wolves who are behind them.
    Nurturing the problem instead of creating solutions.

  8. Let’s look at this this way.

    Suppose sHitler’s body was preserved instead of trussed up and cremated, then buried in an elaborate ceremony by any of the German (or Austrian) governments that succeeded the Thousand-Second Reich, be it Western, Eastern, or unified, and with whoever Chancellor justifying the funeral and burial by saying, “Hey, he might’ve instigated WWII and the Holocaust, but he once served as soldier and Chancellor! Forgive him and forget all those deaths!” —

    — how do you suppose survivors of the Holocaust and WWII veterans and non-(neo-)Nazis and virtually everyone born in the West after the Second World War would react? With joy euphoria rapture?

    Fat chance.

    Same deal here.

    Here’s what you do, ye denizens of GRP: instead of calling those who don’t like what happened with Marcos’ carcass names, you go and try and press with a history that will square up with the reality of the Martial Law years.

    You want the likes of Ramos and Colmenares and the student leftists and leftist leftists to shut the fuck up and move the fuck on? Well, why not tell what really happened, tell them that those who claim they suffered during the Marcos years are faking it to various extents, and prove that the desaparecidos are a fiction made up by the Aquinos and their cronies?

    1. Isnt it about time the law/constitution gets changed about which president gets a hero burial?
      I dont know the literal text but text can be added and/or edited so that only those with an impeccable track record deserve and earn a hero’s burial at the hero’s cemetery.
      Only problem is: what is impeccable to me, can be lousy for others.

      But the current ‘definition’ doesnt work, thats very clear.

    2. Stalin is buried within the kremlin walls.
      Napoleon has a comfy spot in les invalides.
      Not to mention mussolini and chairman mao have their respective mausoleums.
      We dont see russians, french, italians and chinese people calling out to exhume the bodies. They are past that point. Progress is moving forward. Lean from the past, but do not let it block you from moving on. Filipinos simply refuse to do so.

      1. The Russians have always had a penchant for authoritarian strongmen, no matter how fucked-up. Exhibit A: Iosif Vissarionovich Stalin. But perhaps far more important, governments after Stalin have at least criticized the man for his excesses. (I’d have gone on and mention Vladimir Putin, but then 1. He’s not dead yet, and 2. I’d rustle some jimmies here.)

        As for Napoleon, he’s always had an ambiguous reputation. Conqueror of most of Europe, posthumous promoter of democracy or at least democratic feeling along authoritarian lines, visionary, charlatan, blahblahblah.

        Il Duce had to endure a hell of punishment before getting his mausoleum — and last time I heard, no one important is praising his name and his deeds to the skies. (Of course this has been 2016, so I fully expect someone to come up and say the Italian Fascists have reorganized and swamped through the political system there.)

        And finally Mao. Which is disappointing because the Communist Party still reigns supreme in China. The last thing they’ll do is to countenance a warts-and-all examination of the accomplishments and failures of their leader.

        So, in sum: the peoples you mention have either moved on because their bastard leaders’ sins against themselves have been fully acknowledged, or else those sins have been airbrushed out of their history books.

        The fact of the matter is that neither the Marcos family nor this latest administration admit to wrongdoing by Ferdinand Marcos, and indeed would look to the Marcos years as a golden time for Pinoys in general. And you’re surprised and bemused some people got their panties up in a twist?

    3. The problem squatting over that argument is, were the two leaders (FEM and “the Fuhrer”) operating on the same ideological basis for their actions? You’re making comparisons between events that are fundamentally different. It can be gravely misleading.
      You know, the anti- Marcos should specify what they want to put a relative end to this whole thing. But as Imee Marcos has said, there can not be a legal admission of guilt from them- because they’re not the perpetrators. In fact, now would be the time for Enrile and Ramos to make their official statements regarding the abuses in ML.
      The anti- Marcos simply REFUSE to understand and so how can everybody move on? Again, specify what can be LEGALLY and SENSIBLY done for this matter to be put in order. It’s dragging the nation down. Decide for compromise, and do it in accordance with laws. You can’t simply get your way by pagmamaktol, pag-iingay at pagdadabog. That’s uncalled for when the rest of the people might not even agree with your protest.

  9. The Philippines’ political system is quite rotten if you ask me.

    Our Political choice is largely based on loyalty to the candidate and their families/party rather than their political merit.

    We will never get better.

  10. I agree. The biggest failure of Aquinos and their cohorts is that they failed to prove that life under their administrations were better then the Marcos era. If the Aquinos and their allies were able to transform the Philippines into a Singapore or even a Thailand then maybe they would have had more sympathy but they failed and failed miserably thus for a loud minority no one else really cares.

  11. I’m anti-Marcos and anti-Aquino. The Aquinos had their chance to bring justice to the victims but blew it.

    Marcos was no hero, and neither were the Aquinos.
