Ninoy Aquino would say emphatically countless time, “I am not a communist!”   It was believable because he certainly did not sound like a communist agitator and neither did he talk like some devotee of Lenin or Marx or Mao.  Sure, he spoke about the ills of society and problem of widespread poverty and corruption, but having a passion about those issues does not make one a communist any more than a fascination for the USA makes one a lover of democracy.    So when Ferdinand Marcos accused Ninoy as consorting with the communists, people would only think that Marcos had simply run out of imagination.  Ninoy, a communist, c’mon, are you fucking out of your mind?

Yet  this part of  Ninoy’s life  is a recurring controversy people would rather not dwell on, an issue best left alone lest you disturb the peace of the world.  After all, he is a hero to whom we owe.   And a hero is a hero; the least you can do in appreciation of his heroism, do not talk about his blots and blemishes if there were any.  Though you wonder:  what is wrong in admitting you like Marx’s ideas?

Yet something’s not quite right.   Being a communist and believing in the tenets of communism is not the same as consorting with the communists.   Declaring you are not a communist does not answer the question ‘are you consorting with the communists?’

Was Ninoy Aquino consorting with the communists?  He was, says this article on by Lisandrio Claudio:  Ninoy networked with everyone, Reds included

    First of all you have no right to speak for who is guilty
    for you were not there with them remember ninoy and marcos were more than friends and ninoy was given a death penalty because of such accusation but it wasn’t carried out isnt it suspicious that marcos would send an assassin over him and be caught by people on camera rather than just letting have the death penalty? If marcos known that ninoy was a threat all along shouldn’t he have pursue on killing him privately not publicly.
    Letting ninoy go for bypass surgery in U.S. was even weirder because marcos helped him go to another country. A hero of a country is a person who have nurtured and has commitment to his home. Marcos have made the Philippines the best country in the world in his term he had made structures and developments than past president combined.
    Corruption is human nature.
    And the Philippines is more corrupted now because there is something in government history that they are hiding from us.
    Martial Law was a big favor for filipinos because communists are trying to take over the philippines and that was the only way for us to preserve democracy.

    Ninoy Aquino had the ambition to become thd president and won’t stop at anything to accomplish this. Look, he did not care for the Filipino people, he was just thinking about himself in power, so that he could protect and save the HACIENDA LUISITA from going to where it is supposed to go, as agreed upon legally, to the farmers!! Greedy family!!! Ninoy went to the extent of coordinating with the notorious NPAs and communist groups to topple Marcos for his presidential ambition, without any regard to the dangers that may arise from such actions. Ninoy is Not a hero! Marcos had to declare the martial law because he did not want the Philippines to fall to the communist hands led by Ninoy Aquino. FOLKS this is Real history. DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE COJUANGCOS AND THE AQUINOS! Please note that the Cojuangcos are corrupt and greedy . The treasure of the first republic was entrusted by Antonio Luna to Ysidra Cojuangco of Tarlac, but after Luna was killed she kept the Philippines treasure and used it to enrich herself and the Cojuangco clan.

      oh.. you know the issue between the matriarch of the Cojuancos today and the late Gen. Luna. That is why there are papers in the National Library that was stolen and missing especially the papers that will link Luna to the Cojuancos.

    Pnoy and his followers so proudly claim that the Manila-centric Edsa Rev brought back democracy and all their freedoms – freedom to steal more from government, freedom to sell and use more drugs, freedom to do more smuggling activities, freedom to disobey traffic rules, and many more – while forgetting that freedom comes with a corresponding responsibility.

    And now as Bongbong’s numbers in the polls are improving by the day, Pnoy and his media cronies are doing anything and everything within their power to derail Bongbong’s candidacy. Their most obvious strategy is to link him with his father, insisting that Marcos Jr will declare martial law just like Marcos Sr did.

    May I also link Pnoy to Ninoy. It is my opinion that if Ninoy succeeded in his left-wing avocation, he would have been more toxic. I just read this old article on how Ninoy Aquino consorted with the communists. It was written by a Phd candidate at the time of writing. Ninoy had such a profound political ambition that he would do anything to achieve it while protecting Hacienda Luisita by cuddling the communists.

    In the same breath as Bongbong is being linked to his father, it may be logical to say that if Ninoy was a communist, Pnoy is also a communist. Also, now I know that Ninoy died not for his country but for his own vested interest.

    This may be only one view among many, but if there is some truth to it, I am beginning to understand why Marcos declared martial law.
