The idea that Filipinos are the “boss” of public officials became a fad slogan during the administration of former President Benigno Simeon “BS” Aquino III. Not surprisingly, that idea is complete horseshit.
BS Aquino’s “kayo ang boss ko” is now being perverted to the partisan ends of today’s Yellowtard-led Philippine Opposition. They use this moronic notion now to demand unreasonable things of a collegial and non-political institution such as that of the Supreme Court. Worse, the bozo Aquino appointed to be Chief Justice, Lourdes Sereno, extended this moronism further by infesting the High Court with the Yellowtard “people power” narrative and its cast of characters of drama queens and Batang Yagit “victim” acts.
Despite the fact, for example, that current Chief Justice Teresita De Castro’s appointment to head the judiciary is perfectly legal, the Yellowtards continue to throw a tantrum over what they perceive to be an affront to democracy. But look underneath all the shrill noise of this monumental tantrum and one will find not one iota of a coherent argument against this appointment.
The Supreme Court does not owe deference to a screeching mob no matter how loud said screeching may be. They defer only to the law and decide within its framework. The Yellowtards will simply need to come up with an argument against De Castro better than “we don’t like her”.
