Unlike today’s Philippine Opposition and, most certainly, unlike the Yellowtards who “lead” their lot, we try to come up with solutions and alternatives to match our critique. Before Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte delivered this year’s State of the Nation Address (SONA) last Monday, I published a preemptive piece on the subject, “If I were Duterte, this is the State of the Nation Address I’d be delivering today…”. That way I have the right to criticise stuff — because I at least try to come up with something better.
What have the Yellowtards come up with so far? Well, golly gee. I think all they’ve come up with so far is zilch.
The Yellowtards, in fact, were so stupid that they used that Zilch as their platform in this year’s elections. Not surprisingly, they not only won zilch, they got crushed in a catastrophic spectacle under the weight of their inbred hubris.
Following Duterte’s SONA last Monday, it can be observed that the Yellowtards have so far still learned zilch. They continue to apply their characteristically unimaginative faculties to find just the bad in a basket of both good and bad — as if they could have written and delivered something better. Well, this is the sort of thing that just keeps coming back to bite the Opposition, specially at the polls.
When will the Opposition learn that it is a compelling story that captures the attention of Filipino voters? When will they realise that the vast tale of victimhood that is their tried, tested, and failed narrative no longer delivers the results they need to seize power legally?
Only time will tell if the Yellowtards will ever learn.
