One of the big “issues” spun around the “plight” of KADAMAY “activist” Reina Mae Nasino is that her child “Baby River” was taken from her by the state presumably deeming that a person who is in prison is not fit to be carer of young children. Nasino was “charged with the illegal possession of firearms and explosives” according to a BBC News report and was found to be pregnant at the time of her arrest. The Opposition led by the Yellowtards (the bloc of partisans rabidly loyal to the Aquino-Cojuangco feudal clan) as well as the communists have since just about turned her into a modern-day Saint following the death of Baby River allegedly under the care of the Philippine Government.
The question is, where is Baby River’s father in all this?
Indeed, Nasino is made out to be the courageous “hero” the Yellowtards and commies now rally around — the most recent poster girl that they flash as the rallying symbol to once again push their dishonest agenda to unseat a sitting president illegally. It seems, however, the small matter of the identity of the dead child’s father is a truth too inconvenient for their woke politics.

Presumably, Nasino will have likely met Baby River’s daddy in the course of working with squatter “advocate” group KADAMAY before her imprisonment. According to the same BBC News report, Nasino “didn’t know she was pregnant when she was arrested” in November 2019.
She put her missed period down to the stress of a night-time police raid in which she was arrested, alongside two fellow activists.
It was only during a medical examination in prison that the 23-year-old found out she was in her first trimester.
According to an Interaksyon report, Nasino was “asked to turn over Baby River to her father or a relative ‘who could take care of her better’,” after her plea to “temporarily allow her to stay in a hospital or a prison nursery with her child until she turned a year old” was denied.
No other information about the child’s father has since been revealed.
Is the Philippines’ “woke” Opposition so into the idea of a “heroic” woman that the idea of a father being essential to making a baby is just a minor detail that can simply be glossed over? Perhaps the truth may be even more inconvenient for the Opposition agenda to beatify Nasino before her prayerful flock — that Baby River’s father is afraid to come forward and reveal himself. So much for that, right?
Nonetheless it shouldn’t really matter to the sorts of people who “fight” for this “cause” anyway. Communists, after all, aren’t big fans of the social institution of family.
Marxists argue that the nuclear family performs ideological functions for Capitalism – the family acts as a unit of consumption and teaches passive acceptance of hierarchy. It is also the institution through which the wealthy pass down their private property to their children, thus reproducing class inequality.
One then wonders what is it really the Yellowtards and communists are fighting for. The Yellowtards are known to be a prayerful lot whose top honchos are in bed with the men in robes of the mighty Roman Catholic Church. The communists, on the other hand, are supposedly heathens who don’t believe in the importance of raising children within a traditional nuclear family. Makes for an odd couple doesn’t it?
Where is Baby River’s father? The mystery persists.
