What the heck has happened to Filipino “activism”? It’s become so schizophrenic and confused that it is now beyond all recognition. The country’s foremost “activists” are now rabidly and desperately calling for foreign intervention. Even top Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) honcho Joma Sison is calling for no less than the United States to come to the rescue of their hapless “proletariat”. ABS-CBN News reports that “Sison says US could order arrest of ‘traitor’ Duterte”…
“Without firing a single shot, the US can easily instruct its following within the military and police forces under Duterte to take him into custody as a traitor and to install vice president Robredo as the constitutional successor,” Sison said in a statement.
This position of the Philippines’ top commie runs counter to the sloganeering infrastructure of the vast community of university campus “cause oriented groups” infested by his own comrades.
This is the reason why Filipino “activists” — specially the communist variety amongst them — have lost all credibility. Indeed it is quite dishonest of them to be blaming everything that they think is “wrong” in the Philippines on anything or anyone other than themselves.
Sison has joined his pal Rappler CEO Maria Ressa in what had become the prevalent intellectually-dishonest “activist” approach of the 21st Century: Mentally-colonial “activism”.
