Opposition “social news network” Rappler has pulled Philippine “journalism” down to a new low after it featured an “open letter” penned by Lorenzo Legarda Leviste, son of Senator Loren Legarda. Legarda is currently running for re-election under the banner of administration presidential bet Bongbong Marcos.
Reading his “open letter”, one could almost picture the Leviste boy rolling all over the floor pounding his fists in a monumental fit of expression of his self entitlement. Leviste writes how “for weeks” he has “been paralyzed in [sic] pain”…
For weeks I have been crying every day, screaming every day until I spat out blood. The decision she’s made is so profoundly unthinkable, unconscionable, unforgivable. In the last month, my entire life has collapsed. It is beyond a nightmare. I still cannot believe it and will never be able to accept it.
The poor Leviste boy’s “entire life has collapsed”. How horrid. Did someone call an ambulance? For a Yellowtard who likely caught wind of his mother’s political activities from the emotional blackmail served to Filipinos for breakfast everyday by Big Corporate Media outlets like Rappler and ABS-CBN News, the Leviste boy seems to still not get what poor people go through. A “collapsed life” is certainly not one led by some whiny kid who grew up in a comfy mansion in a chi chi private subdivision. Master Leviste only need consult his publisher — preeminent purveyor of Filipino poverty porn — to gain a bit of that latter insight.

The 30-something Leviste boy then proceeds to banish himself from House Legarda-Leviste screeching “I need everyone to know that Loren Legarda lost her son forever because of this.” Well, dude, everyone certainly knows now. Mission accomplished. Now what?
It is hardly surprising that Lorenzo became the man (to use the term loosely) that he is today. According to a 2004 Arab News report, Legarda was involved in a tiff with the Ateneo dr Manila Grade School after it refused a request from her to “adjust the grade of their son in one subject from 84 to 85 so that he could graduate with honors from Grade Seven.” The report quoted a parent who went on record to state that they “were saddened by the values that Loren and her [then] husband [ex-Batangas Governor Antonio Leviste] are teaching the boy.”
Chalk another one up for the high society world of Yellowtard politics. It seems that turning kids against their parents and cheering their quaint alborotos has become a proud tradition of this degenerate political camp. The Yellowtards, after all, are only too quick to latch on to anything that could make anyone associated with Marcos look bad specially in these desperate remaining days of these elections’ campaign period. The irony that flies way above the pointed heads of the Yellowtard lot is that it is ultimately their brand and their partisans that are made to look like idiots by their dishonest practices.
I am in utter grief. F*** my mother for abetting this. Their crimes are her crimes now. Make her defend them.
We’ll see you around, boy.
