Has anyone noticed that commie “activists” have never denied their links to the terrorist New People’s Army? That’s because they can’t. They’ve already lied enough to Filipinos over the last century, but the silence that surrounds their links to the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) and its terrorist arm, the New People’s Army (NPA) is such an enormous whopper that even they can’t mention it in polite company.
A report on militant organisations published on the Stanford University website describes current party-list group Bayan Muna as “a political party connected to the CPP and other groups in the Communist movement.” According to a recent ABS-CBN News report Bayan Muna is part of the Makaybayan bloc of left-leaning party-lists that include “Gabriela, Kabataan, Anakpawis, Migrante, and Alliance of Concerned Teachers.” Like most other mainstream reports and discussion surrounding these “leftist” organisations, the report stops short of describing these groups as being linked to the CPP and the terrorist NPA.
It seems, mainstream media cannot be relied upon either to undertake a bit of the “investigative journalism” the chi chi stalwarts of the Philippines’ “journalism” community of “professionals” pompously encourage everyone to be beholden to. Despite the attention the persistent “mystery” surrounding their communist roots seems to be increasingly attracting nowadays, normally eyeball-starved Big Corporate Media simply dropped the ball on the matter.

Quite the opposite, in fact. No less than top-dog broadsheet Inquirer is pandering to the woman thing and muddling this snowflake “issue” into the conversation surrounding communists-in-disguise. In a recent series of features on their Preen section, they pitched five women associated with the communist cause as “women who refuse to back down despite misogynistic comments, fake news, and red-tagging claims” who are, they add, “Filipinas for change”.
It seems, the society editors and writers of the Inquirer believe communist girlettes hold a monopoly on these special virtues and presume to define the Filipino woman within this rather presumptuous frame. The fact is, these five women are clearly leaders of “movements” that have been long suspected of harbouring direct links to the communist cause, are active in “protest rallies” where those all-too-familiar literal red flags are waved, and where the bafflingly obsolete but all-too-familiar slogan template “Ibagsak ang rehimeng US-[insert current president here] diktador” is used ad nauseum.
Nonetheless, the Inquirer devoted an impressive amount of space and bandwidth to these “Filipino women” with full-length features complete with glammed up photos of shiny faces adorning each article.

One can see the presumptuousness in the titles these ladies hold in how they presume to represent the Philippines’ youth, her students, her campus newspaper editors, and her so-called children. Filipinos should put their foot down and take back their identity from these communists and society editors and writers who presume to know better who the Filipino woman really is. Enough is enough!
