Despite two big Aquino presidencies, that of the late Cory Aquino from 1986 to 1992 and then her son’s, Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino III, from 2010 to 2016, the brains behind the murder of former Senator Benigno ‘Ninoy’ Aquino Jr had never been identified. Despite several inquiries through the Cory Aquino administration, only a handful of underlings were convicted. This led Inquirer columnist Ma. Ceres P. Doyo to ask as recently as August 2018, Who killed Ninoy?
But who were the brains? They could only have been persons with massive power and resources. The convicts were mostly underlings who could only have acted in obedience, in an elaborate plot they knew little about.
Since the beginning of the term of current President Rodrigo Duterte, “thought leaders” of the Yellowtard-led Opposition have been screeching about a lack of any big-time drug personalities being brought to justice in Duterte’s so-called War on Drugs. This makes it all the more laughable that they presume to “honour” the “martyrdom” of Ninoy Aquino considering that they too had failed to bring the Big Guns that shot Aquino to justice and had, instead, satisfied themselves with jailing the little fall guys.
The Yellowtards, in short, are hypocrites. They are people who pepper their rhetoric with lofty words like “justice” and “accountability” yet routinely do their own “hero” a shameful disservice — commemorating him yet leaving every stone unturned in their lazy quest for justice for a murder that will likely remain unsolved forever.
