Ikaw ‘Yan, Bes

Just last week, the President declared his “separation” from the United States. He has dissed the country that has helped us for so long and instead chose to kowtow to China. Allow me to tell you why this is so wrong on so many levels.

First, kissing China’s ass is pretty much the same as kissing America’s ass. Sabi nga ng isang nabasa kong tweet: ang pagiging tuta ng Amerika ay walang pinagkaiba sa pagiging tuta ng China.

Second, the international community (the US and the EU included) helped us win our case versus China. That was a landmark victory, one we thought we’d never win. When we did win against all odds, we won the world’s respect. Other countries in the region were already beginning to look up to our leadership in the struggle that wasn’t just ours versus the colossus that is China, that very country we brought to trial for trying to steal our own property. You know what that’s like? That’s like you making love to the same man or woman who stole from you. Or murdered your loved ones. Or cheated on you. Ladies and gentlemen, tawag jan, masokista. Martir. Ikaw yan, 16M voters. We are now officially the new laughingstock of the world.

Third, Digong has most definitely ceded – if not officially – our territory. China has already declared that Filipino fishermen can now go back to fishing in the disputed areas one one condition: that they get permission from the Chinese Coast Guard! So kinakailangan na nating magpaalam upang makapasok sa sarili nating bahay? Grabe, bes! Katangahan, hindi ba??

Pano na yung pangako nyang he will not give an inch of Philippine territory? Pano na yung sinabi nyang sasakay sya ng jet ski with a .45 pistol and plant the Philippine flag in the Chinese-made islands? Naniwala naman kasi kayong mga 16M voters. Ang dali nyong nauto. Ikaw yan, bes!

Ever since the President took office, I have done my best to give him a chance out of a desire to wait and see what all this change was about.

His ways have been uncouth, pero sige lang. Baka ganyan nga tlga sya. Bisaya ako and I know how Visayans can get when joking.

He had already shown his disrespect for women even before the elections pero mas lumala lalo na sa pagtrato nya kay De Lima. Pero sige, mejo kaya pa. Although di ko kayang lunukin ang kanyang pambabastos sa babae, sige baka kasi may katotohanan. BAKA lang.

He has been vocal about killing drug lords and drug addicts lalo na yung mga small time. In fact, more than 3000 have already been murdered. Pero sige lang, maybe that’s how society must be cleansed kahit na walang due process or isang napaka-laking human rights violation. The Philippines prides itself as the largest Christian population in Asia, pero asan jan ang maka-Kristiyanong pag-uugali (at wag na wag nyong banggitin ang kapwa kong Bisaya na si Pacquiao dahil isa pa yan). Kung Bibliya lang din ang paguusapan, diba turo ng Diyos ang magpatawad at magmahal ng kapwa?

The good president could never shut up and he changes his statements constantly and curses like a bitch (which is quite unfair to bitches by the way, whether animal or human). Iniiwan nya sa kanyang mga tauhan ang pag-explain. Pero sige, baka lang kasi bugso ng damdamin at nagbibiro lang sya. Kahit na di nakakatawa, sige baka pa.

Di ko na nga babanggitin pa nang malawakan ang pagbigay pugay nya kay Marcos whom the world calls one of the world’s most corrupt dictators. Dont even get me started on that at hindi ako matatapos dito.

But this is too much. Kissing ass in front of 200 Chinese businessmen and announcing he is separating from the US (to applause, naturally) is the stupidest thing your precious Digong has ever done.

For a number of reasons. To be specific:

1. China is stealing our territory.

2. China gave very little foreign aid during Yolanda, number 36 on the list of countries, a mere $1 million compared to the US and the European Union (1 & 2 on the list). Surely, an economic giant like China could afford to spend more? NOT that we are asking for alms. No, that’s not the point. I raise this because it is indicative of how much China regarded the Philippines. And we call the US & Europe the villains? Tawag jan, ingrata. Tayo yan, Pilipinas, dahil kay Digong. Ingrata ka. Ingrata ka. Ingrata ka. TAYONG LAHAT. Ano, ididiin ko pa ba? Ingrata tayong lahat dahil kay Digong!

3. China is the biggest source of drugs in the region.

And those are only 3 among many.

Ayaw nga maging tuta ng Amerika, pero gusto maging tuta ng China? While our neighbors such as Hong Kong is praying for what they like to call Chexit or while Taiwan is standing up to China under a female president, the Philippines under your precious Digong is busy kissing China’s ass. Ano yun? Paki-explain nga, bes.

So ano na, Pilipinas? Tatahimik ka na lang ba?

Gumising ka na please. Maawa ka sa sarili mong bayan. Sa mga anak mo. At sa mga anak ng mga anak mo.
And having said all that, I’m pretty sure dami nang trolls at bashers nitong magsisipaglabasan. Well, bash lang, mga bes. Kung may nagagawa man ang pangbabash nyo para sa ikauunlad ng bansa. Tawag jan, pathetic.

Kundi ba naman pairalin n’yo na lang mga utak nyo and look at the true state of affairs sa mahal nating bayan. Wag nang magbulag bulagan. Kasi naman, mga bes, panahon na para magsalita. Para mamulat.

Ang tawag diyan, matapang.

Ikaw ‘yan, bes, kung nanaisin mo.
