What? No words of sympathy from Sarah Elago, Risa Hontiveros, and Inday Espina Varona on the occasion of their leader Joma Sison’s death??

Crickets… As of this writing, Kabataan Partylist honcho Sarah Elago’s timeline had no sign of any tweet on the subject.

And then there is fellow tulisan Risa Hontiveros. Not a peep from the lovely Senator either.

Speaking of lovely, no word on the touchy subject as well from communist “journalist” (now Rappler honcho) Inday Espina Varona as of press time…

…which is strange considering their comrade Teddy Casino was quick off the mark.

So, what’s up with that? Why the silence? It seems to be the biggest mystery of the week considering the passing of no less than the founder of the Communist Party of the Philippines and its terrorist arm the New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) is the biggest news of the week for the Philippine Opposition. Such a strange lot these people are.

  1. How stupid can you be, Benign0? Your brain cannot fathom as to why they are so quiet. So you immediately think that it is because they are a strange lot.

  2. Maybe it’s because the LP – NPA alliance isn’t real.

    In fact, the first politician to say that the NPA isn’t an enemy of the state wasn’t a member of the Makabayan bloc, but rather it was Loren Legarda, who ran under the pro-BBM UniTeam.

      1. Or maybe they never really were allies.

        The opposition would be suicidal to ally themselves with the CPP. And if their supposed alliance with the NPA is so obvious, then how come Risa Hontiveros, one of the more outwardly left leaning members of the opposition, was not only re-elected but got more votes than Leni herself.

        It’s either doesn’t exist or NPA scaremongering is less effective than you think.

  3. Benign0. Let’s hope that Philippines will become far-right like Giorgia Meloni did in Italy. Let’s celebrate Joma Sison’s death and nationalism is rising again. New Society will be reborn as new.
