Yellowtard “investigative journalist” Raissa Robles finally went there. She is challenging Manila Times columnist Bobi Tiglao to explain why he hasn’t filed charges against his own torturers during his imprisonment in the 1970s.
Bobie [sic] Tiglao blames human rights victims for not filing cases against their abusers. He should ask himsrlf first – why did he not file a case right after martial law against his torturer? Takot much?
Tiglao who has has written at length of his own membership in the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) and his own experience being incarcerated on charges of being so.
What Robles should be doing if she were a true journalist is to step back from this infantile personal attack and ask the more important question:
Why did the Cory Aquino government, then successive governments after that, allow Juan Ponce Enrile and Fidel Ramos to go free despite being the key architects and implementors of Martial Law?
People like Robles can pick on people like Tiglao and quibble over their record of dealing with the “Martial Law Years”. But as long as the big question of why no less than two Aquino presidents handled the living architects of Martial Law with kids’ gloves remains unanswered, they will all come across as mere hypocrites.
Ironic that on the anniversary of the declaration of Martial Law, much of what makes the Yellowtards such a laughable bunch of confused dimwits emerged. One notable one is the way they now gang up on elder statesman Juan Ponce Enrile.
Thing is, Enrile is as much a creation of the Yellowtards as he is a relic of the “Martial Law Era”. When he and his henchman General Fidel Ramos turned against their former master, they paved the way for the 1986 Yellowtard “revolution”. So both these men were summarily hailed as “heroes” by the early Yellowtards.
Both men went on to achieve spectacular heights in politics — Ramos as president and Enrile as Senate President. They were able to achieve this because the Yellowtards conveniently forgot that the two were the chief architect and executor of Martial Law respectively.
It is easy to see why the Yellowtards routinely come off as a bunch of stupids. They chant “Never Forget” but conveniently forget pieces of history deemed too inconvenient to fit their idiotic agendas.
All of a sudden, Yellowtards are making a big deal about stuff Juan Ponce Enrile is saying. Dudes, you all had EVERY opportunity to throw him in jail for good back in 1986. Him and the other Martial Law villain Fidel Ramos.
See, this is the whole trouble with virtue signalling. The late former President Cory Aquino let both of these guys go supposedly in the spirit of “reconciliation”. She, in effect, squandered a brief period of “revolutionary” government under which she could have put these two in front of a firing squad without having to go through today’s red tape.
Unfortunately for the Yellowtards, Enrile’s and Ramos’s “human rights” are now protected under the 1987 Yellowtard Constitution. So tough luck. They can screech all they want about seeing Enrile’s head mounted on a stake before the Rizal Monument, but their smooth little “Laban” hands are now tied by the flaccid Constitution they supposedly like “defending”.
Here’s some advise to all you Yellowtards. Next time, kick ass rather than be the hypocritical prayerful snowflakes that you come across as today. That way, you get real and permanent results.
