A person becomes a Yellowtard not because he is better or smarter than all the rest but because he prefers to allow popular but obsolete clique sentiment to hijack his better thinking faculties.
Indeed, it seems too much of the “right” kind of education could be the culprit behind the scourge of Yellowtard disease. What is emerging is an increasingly-evident profile of the sort of person who easily succumbs to Yellowtardism. Such people tend to be enamoured to the stratospheric social status bestowed upon them by their expensive private Catholic school education and come to believe in their entitlement to a special place in their society’s intellectual food chain. The idea that they are destined to be the nation’s intellectual leaders is burned into the wiring of their brains from childhood.

Unfortunately, hardwiring such attitudes in the minds of an entire generation of silver spoon-fed kiddies had proven to result in a perverse form of “thought leadership” — one where “coming down from the hill” to make baka with the masses has become the Philippines’ equivalent of that “white man’s burden” mentality that fuelled centuries of genocidal European colonial expansion in which entire indigenous civilisations were “rescued” from their paganhood by the sword. People who believe they are on a mission from God and that God had “blessed” them with an expensive Jesuit education are convinced that they hold monopoly over a license to teach “morality” and “decency” to all Filipinos.
We need to be careful of such people. They are no different to medieval lords who ruled over the peasantry on the basis of what they regarded to be a birthright.
Who are the gods of these Yellowtards? Contrary to popular belief, the Catholic god is not their Number One god. Their Number One god is “democracy”. Just like the way zealots turn quaint philosophies into virulent religions, Yellowtards have turned a quaint governance ideal into a cult conceptual monstrosity. Democracy works when its adherents apply intelligence and critical thought to their participation in its institutional exercises. Yellowtards, however, are anything but advocates of critical thought. Rather, they would prefer that Filipinos bow to prayerful “martyred” heroes — the saintly victims of “evil” political constructs called “dictators”.
In the case of today’s Yellowtards, the old Martial Law Crybaby act in which the alleged “evils” of the regime of the late former President Ferdinand Marcos are put up to constantly “remind” Filipinos of how “fragile” their “democracy” is and that such a regime should Never Again happen, has long since been worn to sad tatters by the incompetence of their own leaders. But Yellowtardism — like most religions — requires a Satan figure to remain relevant to the “god-fearing” peasantry. This is why Yellowtards fancy themselves as the leaders of a new opposition to crush the government of current Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. For them, Duterte is that much-needed Satan figure around which they could rebuild their currently-diminished yellow demagoguery.
To make good on their new Mission from God, the Yellowtards’ “thought leaders” are spinning a new mythology — one of “extrajudicial killings”, a so-called drug war that “targets the poor”, and a new number associated with The Beast — 8000; representing the “body toll” that no less than the President of the Philippines is, they insist, directly responsible for. What form of logic was applied to establish that the President was the actual killer of these 8,000 stiffs remains a mystery — sort of like how three gods are at the same time one God is chalked up as a mystery Catholics are simply required to believe.
Catholic education. Ain’t it classy. It’s the pre-eminent incubator of the cancerous hipster mentality that has perverted Philippine political discourse beyond all repair.

YellowTardism is some sort of delusional psychological illness, that came out from the 1986 EDSA I Fake revolution. It afflicts a lot of Filipinos, even to this days. It has its heroes; its martyrs; its saints; its own National Day; and its Shrine. Fake News in 1986 EDSA I, became Fake History…that is taught as a school subject . It is an Aquino Cojuangco political axis propaganda, that turned into a brainwashing tool….
They blame the late Pres. Marcos, Sr. , as the cause of the illness. The Dude has been dead for almost 30 years, and he is still blamed for anything bad, that happens in the Philippines…Pres. Marcos Sr. is also used as a “bogeyman”, to frighten gullible Filipinos, about Martial Law. And that the late Pres. Marcos, Sr. might resurrect, and declare again Martial Law in the Philippines…
Fortunately, the Information Technology came, and bloggers who are more informed, gave true information to awaken their fellow Filipinos. The Fake News mainstream media, cannot compete with the social media people, that they are now on the verge of bankruptcy.
I think a better cure for YellowTardism is: to “kick” these people, direct in their asses…to awaken them…
If they refuse to awaken; then, they are as dumb as a rock, their illnesses already metastasized. There is no longer cure or remedy !
the flattening remarks of the yellow dynasty … 1. pilipinos are worth dying for 2. straight path, 3. in good faith.
Amen to that !
it’s all because of luisita’s defence. president duterte’s administration should distribute luisita asap to the real beneficiaries with genuine land titles. or else these different forms of yellow dynasty’s character assassinations against the president won’t stop.
secondly, how could napoles be accused of being the pork barrel mastermind? she even dont have to power a hand to the people’s money. the one who told her to do so is the mastermind, pnoy and abad, these two has the hand on the people’s money, therefore they’re the mastermind. she becomes the road to plunder the people’s money.
…just distribute luisita so they’ll have nothing else to fight for. it’s worth dying for.
the deadliest weaponry of the yellow dynasty is character assassinations. and they launched it again this time on president duterte.
Wear a yellow tie with Ninoy’s glasses on it. That’s how you spot a yellow tard. He does not even have to say anything. Action, or appearance rather, speaks louder than words.
i got 200 million pork, me 100, i received 50. OMG! these are all people’s money that’s why the yellows don’t want to investigate where it went. sequester their properties if they can’t return it to the people.
DAP, PDAF, etc…are one way of legally stealing peoples’ taxpayers money … Aquino used his Presidency to feed these scamming Hacienda Luisita Swines; so that they will do what he wanted…Aquino and his cahoots, even stole our gold reserves…
These people are die hard Kleptomaniacs/Thieves…
Aquino bribed them with: Pork Barrels, DAP, PDAF, etc; to tie their noses like carabaos … Our government is not :Democracy nor Feudal Oligarchy. It is Kleptocracy !
the truth is the yellow dynasty hates the pilipinos to the bones because during martial law the citizens didn’t rise up behind ninoy. so the people must pay.
How one becomes a Yellowtard?
Aquino and his cahoots were not afraid to steal taxpayers’ money…it is because he appointed the Judge on the Ombudsman Court Carpio Morales. Judge Carpio Morales will not entertain in her Court, any complaint of Plunder, by Aquino and his fellow plunderers.
Aquino also impeach the late CJ Corona; and appointed Supreme Court Justice Lourdes Sereno. This Justice will decide any complaint of Plunder by Aquino and his fellow plunderers.
So, these evil people twisted our Judiciary system. They appointed these Judges and Justices, to allow them to do with our money as they wanted to do with them.
We , the taxpayers are paying the salaries of these Judges and Justices. And, they are working against us…
These people are really evil to the core of their souls…
They are working for the Aquino Cojuangco political axis !
alejano’s impeachment complain is to delay the congressional proceeding to include plunder in the death penalty. because it will include almost all top officers of the yellow network.
The best measure of a Failipino politician’s electoral success was becoming not how successfully he/she could broker people’s desires, but how well he/she could tap their fears.
In desperate times, all the old lies come creeping around again.
the yellow attack dogs won’t stop until luisita is distributed. turn it to a productive rice field and the pilipinos problem will be solved. provide the farmers a deep well irrigation…it’s the only way.
it’s the end of the beginning of the yellow dynasty. the yellow SC decision to bury Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani is nothing but a twist to the minds of the people to create chaos, but the citizens didn’t respond to block the burial and they failed at the end of the road. now the future generation will ask, why is he Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani? well, he’s the real Hero. it ends there.
Yellowtards are just a mix of Anti-Semites and Communists who love Aquinos, Liberal Party, Democrats of the USA, Obama and Clinton.
Conservatives and Nationalists do not want yellowtards because Yellows stand for left-wing leftism.
wow the yellow attack dogs found another one to destabilize the administration. they want president Duterte to fight china hehehehe, they think the people will support that. that lagoon at china sea that was told where captain kids’ treasure was hidden is a hoax. so stop it yellowtards there’s no gold bars there….OMG!
the other side of it represents ‘cowardice and deceit’.
MARTIAL LAW is MARTIAL LAW. ignore the 87 constitution it’s not a people’s contitution, it’s yellow dynasty constitution.
Here’s another tip on how to become a Yellowtard, and this is #1: don’t go to Singapore if you want a TOTAL FREEDOM or LIBERATION, doesn’t believe on discipline & not becoming a law abiding person.
To avoid becoming a Yellowtard,
1. Go to China, Russia and places that have authoritarian governments. Sometimes North Koera.
2. Have nationalism, conservatism and authoritarianism to have proper propgress in exchange of freedom and liberation.
3. Live in tyranny.
