So earlier today, Mocha Uson was appointed to the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) as a board member. Reactions are mixed; jubilant among Mocha’s followers and full of shock and anger among her critics, especially the young Tweeting millennials. I’m not shocked at all for my part.
I’ve been saying this to people for weeks. Months, probably. The moment you tried to shut her down with that stupid petition to close down her Facebook page is the moment she cements her fame. Of course Mocha has risen. What are you all people so shocked about?

Jesus. The media, the political elites, the millennials, you. Ohh! Jaw on the floor. How can everyone be so stupid?
Which takes me to the mainstream media. What were these people thinking? Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a fan of Mocha. I’d personally listen to Lucifer than Mocha Uson. Mocha Uson, the blowjob-teaching, hatemongering, extrajudicial killing-denying, shit-spewing demagogue. So, how terrible have you got to be to lose to her?
People keep asking “How did this happen?” But oh, it’s so simple! The mainstream media and the intellectuals did this. The mainstream media, once the primary source of information, now stands for very little. What the hell did they think was going to happen when our supposed sources of information have been cozying up to money interests and dry humping politicians for years?
And next time I see one more Tweet complaining or shocked about Mocha Uson’s appointment, I’m gonna drop a fucking bullock! Not everyone who follows Mocha Uson is an idiot or a Dutertard. Some of them are, but most aren’t. Most people abandoned mainstream media and followed Mocha not because they’re stupid, but because they abandoned mainstream media because mainstream media offered no credible information sources, no palpable change, whatsoever. Same old shit! Mocha represent an alternative, a terrifying alternative but an alternative nonetheless.
And mainstream media, represents, well as I said before it represents very little. This is something the anti-Duterte group has failed to understand. When will we learn that the key is discussion? Do we have to wait for Mocha Uson to be elected to the Senate before we realize that arguments are not won by hurling labels and insults?
Every time you call someone a Dutertard or support a petition to shut down the Facebook page of someone who disagrees with you, you are creating the conditions in which Mocha Uson and people like her can thrive.
But instead of engaging people properly, you all just resorted to labels and insults, calling everyone who disagrees with you a Dutertard or a Macoytard. You just shared on Facebook a millennial ranting about the drug war, and you just re-Tweeted witty one-liners from famous Tweeters. Then Mocha Uson still remained standing. What’s going on!? It’s almost as if the political acumen of Ethel Booba counts for nothing!
And then you people lose it, then lock yourselves in your room and keep Tweeting about it because you’re too upset, or perhaps it had never occurred to you that you are responsible for Mocha Uson’s rise to fame! Grow up! I have no sympathy for you, whatsoever! Be better in political engagement!
It’s time to stop crying. It’s time to stop moaning. It’s time to stop ignoring your opponents or worse, trying to silence them! It’s time to stop thinking that sharing a news article is a form of political engagement. It’s time to stop thinking that sharing a millennial’s rant on the drug war somehow achieved something!
It’s time to actually engage in the political process. It’s time to stop hurling labels and insults. Engage people who think differently to you and talk to them. Debate them. Persuade them of your argument. Because if you don’t, Mocha Uson will not be the last rise to fame that you people will be ranting over.

I’m not sure if you’re lampooning Jonathan Pie here but a disclaimer would have been nice.
*reading this in Jonathan Pie’s voice*
Believe it or not Mocha Uson is a product of the peoples’ disgust to mainstream media’s knack for paying too much attention to trivial matters such as telebasuras and showbiz nonsense. Mocha Uson’s blog has more sense than what those journos claim! Well congrats to Mocha just the same!
MTRCB Board Member?
An incredible important and influential position that will change the live of every Filipino.
Rolling my eyes….
In other important news, up in Pampanga a sack of rice fell over.
The rise of Mocha is no different from the rise like a phoenix of Marcos.
I have never been a fan of Uson but OMG I am dying to get her signature on my T-shirt!
Sa mga kautotan dila ni Mocha, pwede bang pakisabi sa kanya na pa autograph naman po !
Mocha’s being an icon now is made possible by Rappler’s idiotic brilliance !
Long live the intellectuals in mainstream media !
Mocha Unson will just be a member to review, television and movies, shown to public. They can appoint anybody, who loves to watch movies and television shows…
I cannot understand what a big deal is this appointment.
People had elected , Bam Aquino, as Senator. He tried to legislate advancement in Science and Technology , in the Philippines. They also elected , Trillanes, another idiot, who is the attack dog of Aquino. They elected, Leila de Lima, the nymphomaniac and Drug Dealer, who have a good sexual taste on Bilibid Prison inmates…
So, vent your outrage somewhere…to the Aquino/Mar Roxas, Leila De Lima Drug cartel , or to someone else !
I thought Pie’s monologue can apply to Duterte as well.
Freedom isn’t free. It shouldn’t be a bragging point that “Oh, I don’t get involved in politics,” as if that makes you somehow cleaner. No, that makes you derelict of duty in a republic. Liars and panderers in government would have a much harder time of it if so many people didn’t insist on their right to remain ignorant and blindly agreeable.
Personally, I don’t see what is being problematic here. Yes, she sometimes say things that are disagreeable to the extent that she treats Duterte as a god. But, does it matter. You have your own opinion, she has hers. Like what the article points out. The more you try to put her down, you create attention for her to thrive.
When a US citizen Grace POE was assign as the boss ni MTRCB, nobody lift a finger in the media. POE has no experience to anything .except a ampon of Da king as a good qualification. Because of abnoy owning the local media ,that is why…. Now puson is an otsider in local media ang got a lot of complain..she is a Pilipino citizen
compared to POE that time..yellow trolls can twist the truth to protect the interest of few elites
