If one were truly looking out for the overall welfare of Filipinos and the bigger good of the entire nation, the focus of any sort of activism would be on finding practical forward-looking solutions to problems. In the case of the current brouhaha over an accident involving a Chinese vessel and a Filipino fishing boat on Reed Bank, the most practical solution to move forward would be to contain the situation and mitigate any further impact on the broader Filipino public.
But take stock of the shrill shoutouts being issued by the “woke” crowd of “influencers” and “activists” of the Yellowtard-led Philippine Opposition and it becomes glaringly evident that they have a different agenda in mind. Their agenda, as always, remains fixated on ousting duly-elected Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte and returning their own people to power — power they believe they are entitled to by virtue of the blessings of no less than the Pope himself.
The Yellowtards unfortunately would just as soon sabotage an economy or drum up war with China (or both) if they see an opportunity there to seize power even through illegal means. Suffice to say, these are not very nice people as they think nothing about disrupting — even putting at risk — millions of lives just to achieve their ends. Think Antonio Trillanes back in the mid-2000s and how he presumed to use military resources under his command to do just that and you will find a person who singularly encapsulates the character of the Yellowtards.
Not very nice. It’s time Filipinos get rid of them and their cancerous legacies in Philippine society.
