THE MILITANTS SHOULD STAY ON THE SIDE
INSTEAD OF MUDDLING THE EFFORT OF THE DUTERTE ADMINISTRATION
By Apolinario Villalobos
Personally, I do not know what the militant groups such as Bayan, Gabriela and others want to show and prove. They seem blind to and ignorant on what the new administration is doing, especially, in reaching out to the communist group and the Islamic groups in the south. Peace negotiations with these groups are in the offing as president Duterte has given instruction for the issuance of safe passes for their leaders. On the other hand, the subordinate groups of the communists, they that just love to hold rallies are doing otherwise.
Their rallies every time a US diplomat visits the Philippines have become sickeningly irritating. They seem oblivious to the realities of issues at hand, such as those that revolve around the West Philippine Sea. To which are these groups leaning when clearly, their hierarchy has already expressed support to the Duterte administration? In the first place, they have not done anything for the country, except disrupt the traffic, deface the US embassy façade, disturb the air with their senseless shouts for the Americans to leave the country, and scatter trash on the streets after their rallies.
If what these groups crave for is just the attention of the public, they should know that the Filipinos are no longer political suckers. If they expect Filipinos to applaud their rallies, they are wrong. On the other hand, motorists and commuters are cursing them every time the already hellish traffic gets MORE tangled every time they hold rallies. Before the Filipinos would totally lose their respect to these irresponsible nationalistic groups “kuno”, the latter should better think twice before hitting the street again to hold another senseless rally!
IF THEY WOULD INSIST ON DOING WHAT THEY WANT, IT JUST PROVES THAT THEY HAVE NO CLEAR DIRECTION AND OBJECTIVE, BECAUSE FOR THEM, ALL ADMINISTRATIONS ARE EVIL! IT SEEMS THAT ALL THEY WANT IS TROUBLE!…THE BIG QUESTION IS, WHY????
