The mystery of why Filipino communists such as @LFSPhilippines would be in “solidarity” with Hong Kong activists

Isn’t the League of Filipino Students (LFS) a communist front? Indeed, it is therefore quite baffling that they’d stand in “solidarity” with Hong Kong activists who are rallying against their comrades in the mainland.

STAND WITH THE PEOPLE OF HONG KONG!
EXPOSE AND OPPOSE CHINA EXTRADITION!

The League of Filipino Students stands in solidarity with thousands of Hong Kong protesters, majorly led by students, in their fight against the proposed reading of pro-Beijing Hong Kong administration’s Extradition Bill.

In his Message to the League of Filipino Students on the Occasion of Its 25th Founding Anniversary, Joma Sison, founder of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) had this to advise to its his young comrades…

You must strive to consolidate your ranks through studies, tasking of members and checking their work. Consolidation leads to immediate and long-term expansion. In fact it means you expand the number of the most conscious and most militant members. As part of consolidation, the current pool of members is also required to recruit new members.

Inconsistent ‘activism’: The Philippines’ foremost activists like the left-leaning Inday Espina Varona and Tonyo Cruz come across as elitist even as they supposedly champion issues important to the masses.

Why would communists oppose their own motherland’s consolidation of their own authority over an outpost of capitalism — an affront to their state ideology — that they had tolerated for almost a hundred years? The People’s Republic of China, after all, is a communist state. One would expect that Filipino communists would be aware of that fact.

The astounding inconsistency of the “activism” of Filipino communists as evident in the baffling position its front organisations like the LFS would take is why they continue to fail to redeem their lost credibility.

The Philippines has become truly INDEPENDENT under President Rodrigo Duterte

Several generations of “activists” have, in their now characteristically-shrill manner, decried the persistence of “US Imperialism” despite being granted “independence” more than 70 years ago on the 4th of July, 1946. What seems to fly above their pointed heads is that the beginnings of a true freedom from “US Imperialism” had actually begun under the leadership of current President Rodrigo Duterte.

Under Duterte, the Philippines had pivoted away from the agenda of its former colonial master and embraced the Asian community within which it truly belongs. The success of this pivot is evident in the shrill stink being raised by Old Guard “activists” who see themselves as the traditional owners of “dissent” in the Philippines’ political discourse.

For the proponents of “people power” activism (the activist axis consisting of the Yellowtards and the Roman Catholic Church) and “revolutionary activism” (the activist sub-culture consisting of communists and their vassals in campus “progressive” organisations), the pivot away from the United States seems to have induced a bizarre separation anxiety. We see this today in how they now desperately cling to the West and, worse, their traditional media for intellectual validation.

When it comes to the crunch, today’s Opposition would rather contradict their own fundamental principles than evolve in a more sustainable manner to be in touch with the pulse of the Filipino public. This has severely cost them — an entire nation lost over two elections in a row.

Otso Diretso and the Communists: TALO sa #Halalan2019

With more than 90 percent of votes transmitted, adminstration and independent candidates dominate the top 12 slots up for grabs. The only blight on the list is Bong Revilla who was, until now, detained on charges of corruption.

What is left for the Yellowtard-led Opposition to do? Why cry bloody “electoral fraud” of course.

We all know the drill.

The trouble with that option is that the unofficial results so far are consistent with numerous surveys conducted by independent firms led by Social Weather Stations (SWS) and Pulse Asia. The only thing the Yellowtards can count on is the dismal credibility of the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) — the single common denominator underlying electoral fraud over the last several decades.

But the Yellowtards had essentially shot themselves in the foot back in 2016 when they aggressively dismissed charges of cheating back then when their lackey, the disgraced Andy Bautista, ruled over the COMELEC as its chairman.

Tough shit is pretty much the only thing one could say about the plight of the Yellowtards, the broader Opposition and the communists at the fringes who piggyback on the quaint demonisation campaign they have been mounting against the administration of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte.

The curious case of COMMUNISTS calling for “gov’t action vs Chinese presence” in the Spratlys

According to this Inquirer report, “Bayan Muna on Saturday called on the government to protest the increasing presence of Chinese vessels circling the Pag-asa Island (Thitu Island), which it said may lead to heightened Chinese aggression.”

Now ain’t that rich?

On one hand, commies would routinely demonise the Philippine government and Filipino soldiers as their enemies then, on another, would issue idiotic statements like these for the campaign brownie points.

And, indeed, it is all about those brownie points. Turns out commie candidate Neri Colmenares is behind this latest commie ululation…

According to Bayan Muna chairman and Makabayan bloc senatorial candidate Neri Colmenares, there seems to be a coordinated effort by Chinese vessels to narrow and tighten areas that Filipino fishermen and other Philippine vessels can enter in our own territory.

I think Colmenares and his commie comrades in the New People’s Army (NPA) have lost the right to call the Philippine government to take action on whatever “issue” their pea brains come up with to use as fodder in their campaigns.

For that matter, why are they even participating in an election to begin with when their preferred method of taking power is to launch an armed terrorist struggle and install their “dictatorship of the proletariat”?

People seem to forget that the New People’s Army are an armed ENEMY force that kills Filipino soldiers

It seems being an apologist for a terrorist enemy army such as the communist New People’s Army (NPA) has become not just an acceptable position to take in polite society, it’s also become fashionable amongst snowflake “activists” like Inday Espina Varona as she demonstrates in a tweet today…

Well, there you go. The tyrant Duterte has just confirmed the genuinely progressive character of the NPA 🙂 Saludo! The NPA does not discriminate and accepts LGBTQs into their ranks. It even recognises same-sex marriage. 🙂

Earlier, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte made crack about the NPA quippping that “40 percent” of them are gay. Whether he meant that in a bad or a good way, the leader of a nation at war holds licensed to call the enemies of his people any way he pleases.

The NPA are terrorists and enemies of the Filipino people. So as far most Filipinos are concerned, nobody really gives a shit how open their ranks are to gay people.

Back in the day the people of REAL NATIONS were ONE in demonising the enemies they are at WAR with.

There are worse words than “bakla” to to call an enemy army and worse ways to shape their images in the minds of a people at war.

An “immersion”. With “farmers”. In Quezon province. Organised by @LFSPhilippines… 🤔

If it walks like a communist, quacks like a communist, looks like a communist, then it must be…

Rizza Divine was supposedly part of an “immersion” program organised by the League of Filipino Students (LFS) which everyone knows is a communist front operating with impunity in most Philippine university campuses. She went “missing” long enough for her father Roland Camingawan to seek the help of radio station dzBB.

But

The legal management freshman is said to be a member of the League of Filipino Students (LFS)-UST, and of Anakbayan-UST when she was in UST Senior High School.

Was this really an “immersion” programme? Or was it just another method of recruiting combatants into the New People’s Army, the terrorist arm of the Communist Party of the Philippines?

The questions continue to mount…

Kris Aquino: a casualty of Ninoy’s and Cory’s misguided poltical ambition

Kris Aquino is proof Cory should not have been and was not an effective President. Cory could not even raise her children well, what more run a country with millions of people? It should start at home. Cory failed at both – raising her children well and running a country.

Kris is a product of her upbringing. It’s obvious since she was a teenager that her mother could not control her. Cory practically gave up on her. She is a casualty of her parents being involved so deep in politics. They prioritised their ambitions over their children.

The Aquino brand of politics involved treachery and double crossing even their allies. This was why former Senator Enrile was compelled to launch a coup during Cory’s time. Cory was supposed to be temporary in her role, but she clung to power. Her former VP Laurel said so himself. Laurel even pointed out that the persistent and even worsened communist insurgency is a legacy of Cory Aquino’s rule.

We promised to ‘break the back’ of the insurgency. But what is the record? From 16,500 NPA regular when Marcos fell, the communists now claim an armed strength of 25,200, of which 2,500 are in Metro Manila. They have infiltrated not only the trade unions, the schools, the churches and the media but your government, above all, and now ‘affect’ 20 percent of the country’s 42,000 barangays, according to official statistics.

Worse of all, it seems Kris Aquino was even bragging about how her family is capable of killing anyone who crosses her. The anti-EJK yellows should be alarmed and outraged!

Is Satur Ocampo a communist? Is he involved with the New People’s Army?

For most Filipinos, that’s like asking if the Pope is Catholic. Or whether or not you need to be a lawyer to be Chief Justice.

There are enough historical accounts of Satur Ocampo’s links with the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) and its terrorist arm the New People’s Army (NPA). A 1989 report on information obtained in the midst of internal strife within the CPP-NPA tagged Ocampo a “propagandist” of the outlawed group…

An internal report of the Communist Party’s annual Politburo meeting last March noted, for example, that “for the first time, in many places, there is a lack of people to hold the guns.”

The report, seized during the capture of NPA propagandist Satur Ocampo in July in Manila, complained that party membership fell by “several thousands” in 1988. “Whole guerrilla fronts have been lost because of the inadequacy of cadre, neglect of the mass base” and military “mistakes,” the report said.

Perhaps it is high time Satur Ocampo be recognised for what he was and what he likely still is. Filipinos should NEVER FORGET what he did.

Scientific American article BRILLIANTLY illustrates the Yellowtard and communist mindsets today

An article titled How to Convince Someone When Facts Fail republished in Scientific American provided an interesting case study that mirrors the behaviour of the Yellowtards and communists today in the way they defend their failed ideologies…

In the classic 1956 book When Prophecy Fails, psychologist Leon Festinger and his co-authors described what happened to a UFO cult when the mother ship failed to arrive at the appointed time. Instead of admitting error, “members of the group sought frantically to convince the world of their beliefs,” and they made “a series of desperate attempts to erase their rankling dissonance by making prediction after prediction in the hope that one would come true.” Festinger called this cognitive dissonance, or the uncomfortable tension that comes from holding two conflicting thoughts simultaneously.

It is easy to see the parallels — how the Yellowtards and communists stick to obsolete slogans and indefensible positions to continue their rabid quest for relevance they had irrevocably lost a long time ago.
