IT MATTERS WHO PULLED THE TRIGGER, IDIOT!

August 31, 2008

For an example in high class hypocrisy and intellectual dishonesty, read today’s editorial of the Philippine Daily Inquirer.  In the middle, it goes:

We should not lose sight of the essential, agreed-upon or already established facts, however. There was an elaborate security operation to secure Aquino’s safety upon his arrival at the Manila International Airport, called Oplan Balikbayan. But there was also an equally complex but smaller-scale military operation (whether part of Balikbayan or completely separate from it remains unproven) to put Aquino in harm’s way. (italics mine)

Part of that essential, agreed-upon or already established facts, of course, is that Galman was just a fall guy who got caught in the web of a grand conspiracy to kill Ninoy Aquino.

Translation: in the larger picture, it does not matter now who pulled the trigger.

It could not be that simple.  To say so omits the necessary implication:  if indeed Galman were the one who pulled the trigger, it follows without question that those soldiers, save for one or two, who were convicted of the crime and put to prison were innocent.  You ignore that at the expense of your moral and intellectual integrity.

Tell me, it does not matter that innocent people were convicted of a crime, robbed of their freedom and future, and languishing in jail to this day since when???

But then that’s just for starters.  When we try working back from that ‘insignificant’ detail going all the way up, trouble begins.  For the unraveling has far-reaching implications very disturbing.

When once you were hailing the decision to convict the soldiers as triumph of justice, it could get truly complicated.

    I pity those soldiers. They are victims of people who cry “justice for all” at every turn. How ironic!

    Nothing comes out of that invistigation if IT’S INVISTIGATED BY A FILIPINO!!!

    Let us be reminded the ZTE, Hello Garci and other Senate clowns invistigation. Nothing came out of it. And that’s from foreign-schooled Ivy-league graduates Senators.

    Rookie policemen in Amerika wouldn’t even divulge the name of the victim, who their suspects are, the weapons of crime … etc … YET OUR BRIGHT INTELLIGENT SENATORS has already told the public thru our pekeng-periodistas who lacks journalistic standards, ethics and responsibility.

    WHAT A FESTIVE IGNORANCE AND THAT’S COMING FROM THE IDIOTS UP THERE IN THE SENATE AND THE STUPID PEKENG-PERIODISTAS …

    So the invistigated already knew how to parry the accusation.

    STUPID! STUPID! FILIPINO STUPID!!! DING-DUNG

    RP, I do appreciate your dropping by from time to time. But surely we can do with less hysterics and insults. Just argue your points intelligently and soberly. It doesn’t help that you seem like you’re on speed, man.

    I need a little spanking from time to time. I just cannot get over my hatred of these arrogant foreign-schooled-ivy-league senate clowns and coward coin-operated-journalists.

    I THANK YOU FOR NOT DELETING MY POSTS.

    AS PEOPLE IN MANAGEMENT SAYS, WHICH HOLDS TRUE IN POLITICS, “To know the solution is to know the problem”. I salute you for swallowing my hypes and insults. It’s not directed against you, it’s directed to your readers and Filipino people who are oblivious to the fact that their “informed” political decisions is molded by paid-hacks masquerading as “4th estate”

    I do appreciate your patience on me.

    Thank you.
