De Lima joins the chorus demanding for Duterte’s ouster (ganun lang kadali yun?)


Ayaw na talaga ng mga dilawan na makarating pa sa eleksyon ang pag-upo ni Pangulong Rodrigo Roa Duterte kahit na isang taon at kalahati na lang ang natitira sa kanyang six-year term.

Sa balita na ipinalabas ng Philippine Daily Inquirer, nagpahayag si Senator Leila de Lima mula sa kanyang selda sa Camp Crame na umalis na lang daw sa daan si Mayor (“get out of the way”) at ibigay ang puwesto bilang Pangulo kay fake commander in chief Leni Robredo.

Sabi ni De Lima, na habang abalang-abala daw si Robredo sa pamimigay ng tulong sa mga nasalanta ng dalawang bagyo, wala daw ginawa si Pangulong Duterte kondi mambastos kay Leni.

There seems to be an orchestrated effort to pitch this Resign Duterte propaganda campaign. And the dilawan senators — Drilon, Pangilinan and Hontiveros — have banded together to form a defensive shield around Robredo. As if kaya nilang mapigilan ang galit ng taong bayan ngayon.

This noise — ingay lang naman talaga ito — demonstrates the heightened level of desperation of the dilawans, with financial backing from the oligarchs and moral support from the Reds, as the 2022 elections draws nearer.

It is clear that the Liberal Party and their allies are headed towards their doom, and they know it. Kaya sila natatakot. Pagnaubos na ang mga LP senators (De Lima and Hontiveros are re-electionists while Pangilinan’s term will end along with Drilon on June 30, 2022), wala na talaga silang tagapagtanggol sa Senado. Toothless na ang Liberal Party. Finished. Pulverized.

For them, it’s now or never. Kailangan nilang isulong itong kampanya na pilit na pa-alisin sa puwesto si Pangulong Duterte. Lahat na lang na isyu ibinabato nila laban sa Pangulo. Kaya pati si De Lima, sumali na rin sa chorus.

Of course, it is an exercise in futility. Walang naniniwala sa kanila. Naubos na talaga ang tiwala ng taong bayan sa kanila at ayaw na silang makita na makakabalik pa sa kapangyarihan.

These yellows have nobody else to blame but themselves. They squandered that golden opportunity when Benigno Simeon C. Aquino III was propelled to the Presidency upon the death of his mother, Cory. Those six years were the worst in our political history.
