Filipinos too paralysed by partisanism and superstition to implement modern disaster relief

155 Shares

In the aftermath of yet another devastating “natural” disaster — this time an earthquake hitting southern Mindanao — Filipinos are again exhibiting the lack of decisive and deliberate fast action required to deliver timely relief to its victims. Much of the action being instigated by local governments are the usual appeal for aid from the national government and what relief is coming is being dripfed in fragmented form through charity organisations and private efforts.

Virtue signalling framed by a partisan agenda is rife — a testament to the primitive nature of the Philippines’ political discourse. Various “thought leaders” of the Philippines’ Opposition camp, for example, go as far as conscripting their god to the cause of “educating” supporters of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte on the cause-and-effect chain of earthquakes…

Attesting to the lack of conviction with which Opposition personalities like self-described “truth detector” Yoly Ong deliver their thoughts via social media is a quickness to withdraw their statements when the response they had hoped for does not materialise.

Evidently Ong sees herself as a modern-day prophet of some sort galloping in to “jolt” sinners into an “awakening”. Clearly the intent is to insult people’s intelligence and not to awaken their senses in this instance. Even a relatively educated and supposedly more intellectual guy like Theodore Te, faculty member of chi chi Ateneo Law School makes underhanded insinuations whilst Tweeting loaded questions such as this…

True enough, the intended payload of this “question” did not escape the stunted sensibilities of Yellowtard celebrity Leah Navarro who (in a tweet later deleted) quipped “Retribution?” in a response that mirrors Te’s up-the-Hill form.

Fortunately there are small communities of modern-minded Filipinos ready with more sensible answers to Opposition thought leaders’ stupid questions.

If only real leaders who apply enlightened thinking to natural problems can step up and rescue the Philippine Opposition from the scourge of the Medieval thinking their current leadership indoctrinates their lot with.

Back in 2016 I wrote about “The mystery of why otherwise intelligent people support Leni Robredo”. Indeed, the Ateneo de Manila University seems to be an increasingly evident common denominator in the dysfunctional thinking that infests the Philippine Opposition.

Famed astrophysicist Reina Reyes, an alumna of the Ateneo de Manila, is an avowed supporter of ‘vice president’ Leni Robredo.

One would think that the intellectual horsepower churned out by the Jesuits and the awesome media mafia under the control of the Yellowtards would be channeled to the cause of developing or at least lobbying for a more modern and sustained level of disaster preparedness in the Philippines. Reyes, for example, equipped with the mathematics acumen needed to apply the quantitative predictive modelling that is essential to support a credible national disaster response infrastructure, chooses, instead, to lend her mind to the “cause” of the Ayala Corporation today. Fair enough, of course. But this is but an example of the vast options for intelligent leadership the Opposition seems to be missing out on in their baffling deference to their tradition of voodoo politics.

It is high time the Opposition ditch the old thinking — and the Yellowtard personalities who are behind it — and step up to becoming the real Opposition Filipinos deserve.

  1. These YellowTards were Indoctrinated by the YellowTard 1986 EDSA Fake News, that became Fake History….they are still suffering from the results of their indoctrinations, that taught them, that Cory Aquino is a “saint”, and Ninoy Aquino is “martyr hero”; and still have dysfunctional thinking of false religion, that every natural disaster is caused by an “Angry God”.

    The Planet Earth is made up of Earth Plates, or Earth Crust, that moves, as our Planet turns… When these plates, move or crack in a violent way: the result is a Tectonic Earthquake. The energy released can be weak, moderate or strong…Earthquakes can be caused also by :volcanic eruptions, nuclear blasts, and other natural activities of our Planet Earth…

    Earthquakes have nothing to do, because God is angry at Digong Duterte….or Digong Duterte committed some sorts of sins, that must be punished . to awaken people or as a retribution to the sins of Duterte…

    Some of the YellowTards are still living in the Dark Age. Where the wrath of an “Angry God” is directed upon his sinful people and upon the “sinful” Duterte!

    1.

  4. The choice of VP for Reina Reyes shows the level of intelligence peeps of Ateneo had always have: shallow and dreadfully void of credible intelligence.

    Such people will never be in the level of students and alumnae here in Singapore (and even in other ASEAN brothers to say the least).

    Oh poor Yolly, she wanted to get some “jolt of action” she expected in DDS but only dug herself a very deep grave. Dudirty does not even care if he goes to hell after his presidency, as long as he finishes his term. Yolly Shmolly has the impatience of kiddo in tantrum, mewling and gnashing her teeth to get the attention on everyone but in return will try to retract her words and actions when called out and reprimanded.

    Why suddenly we get imbecile Filipino women nowadays who think they could say something unsubstantial and lacking in depth and logic (starting with the likes of “their” fake VP Leni, to lustful De Lima, to dreadful Commie student Sarah Elago, old dog and has been entertainer Leah Navarro, and now this Yoly Shmolly [who?])? Why can’t they be as brainy and logical as Ilda here in GetRealPhilippines who truly uphold the greatness and virtue of Filipina women?

  5. In the same vein as Te, I can ask Dr. Reyes:

    “What’s with the state of astrophysics studies and research in the Philippines?”

    I hope these people don’t react to this post, and choke on their own reasoning…

  6. They could’ve been “epals” for a good cause by giving disaster relief with all the photo ops and employment of mainstream media instead of insulting the victims and the intelligence of Filipinos collectively. That would’ve fared better for the dying embers of the delusional yellows.
