I’m very vocal with my views on politics or general current events in general. Not online but among my peers. I want it verbal because I yearn for intelligent conversations in person.
I’m not Anti-Duterte. I agree that he has some interesting accomplishments but that doesn’t mean that I agree with all of his works especially regarding this “War on Drugs”.
I’m not Pro-Leni or Pro-LP. Leni has her own charm. Helping the poor and marginalized ever since. Famed as the wife of Sec. Robredo. A wife. A mother. I’m not particular with her works but from what I knew is that she’s doing just fine.
You know I got called dilawan many times already. I even had a misunderstanding about these killings with one of my bestfriends during out trip in Singapore. But I didn’t back down. I know my beliefs.
Just a few days ago, I was triggered. I’m telling my Filipino housemates about this Carl Arnaiz issue. That it’s another Kian Case. But they just laughed and flashed the L or the Laban sign which was popularized by Corazon Aquino. I told them that it’s not a laughing matter.
These guys are really apathetic. They were telling me when I arrived in Kampala about the Kian case but I just shrugged them off. I told them I didn’t have access to news because I’m too busy on the training. But you know, I pity them. They are even calling Kian’s supporters as “Kianatics”. I want to strangle them right then and there.
We are talking about lives here. Lives of thousands of Filipinos and some of them are lives of innocent people and even children. Calling them as a collateral damage is an insult to their life. They have friends and families too. Friends and families that will never hear them laugh, or will never witness their future success.
It’s just sad that we have these kinds of people of approve this kind of atrocity. They call themselves a good Christian? Oh scrap that religious-thingy faith. Are they even human.
