Looking back at the Adam Carolla issue, I realized that the reason he said “Filipinos, get your ___ together!” was that some Filipinos wrote online messages or said something somewhere insulting Mayweather. All Mayweather did was ask for a blood test on Pacquiao as a condition to agree to fight. When Pacquiao refused, Mayweather withdrew. Recently, news went around that some people once close to Pacquiao said that he was taking shabu before he became famous. Mayweather probably got wind of this, and decided to test it to be sure. What’s wrong with confirming a suspicion? And also, Pacquiao should have agreed to a blood test. He was acting like a sissy by saying he’ll go weak by giving blood. He could have dispelled suspicions.
OK, we never got wind of any insults to Pacquiao from the Mayweather camp or from Mayweather fans. But even if there were, they never reached the attention of Filipinos, not a single thing on national TV. In other words, American fans didn’t raise hell. But once the reaction to Adam Carolla’s own “insults” came out, Filipinos raised hell. But in tracing the cause, one can end up with Filipino Pacquiao fans who insulted Mayweather and Americans.
In other words, Filipinos started it.
Wait. Not Filipinos… some Filipinos only. Some, not all. Namely, idiotic Filipino Pacquiao fans. Only the idiotic ones. Not all. I’m sure there are Filipino Pacquiao fans with a more reasonable view of the Mayweather affair. Maybe here was Adam’s mistake; only a few Filipinos acted, and he reacted to Filipinos in general. But he was close. Pacquiao fans, at least some of them, were really acting sub-humanly, and they dragged their country down with them.
The story is, Carolla had a caller, and it was not Carolla himself who raised the issue. The caller was irate because he heard Filipinos use racist comments and other insults against Mayweather. It was even possible that these Filipinos were insulting black boxers, black people and Americans in general. Carolla responded accordingly with his radio show. Those Filipino fans shouldn’t deny that they started it; it’s obvious! Carolla and the caller were only reacting!
I myself would consider Pacquiao admirable because he won bout after bout in his career. Sure, he has his slips ups, like running in the elections… and refusing the blood test maybe. But the problem is his fans. These fans who mouthed out the insults that Carolla reacted to… they acted like the most sub-human creatures that are more disgusting than cockroaches and of so inferior intelligence that even the lowest animal is millions of times more intelligent.
National pride was insulted daw. But what happened here was not national pride; it was national arrogance! Filipinos insulted someone in the most reprehensible ways for his merely refusing to fight their champion. And they got the reaction they deserved.
The Adam Carolla issue again showed the problems of our damaged culture. The problem is that Filipinos prefer to front other Filipinos who are more successful, like Pacquiao, and ride on the fame of this person in order to boast to other nationalities. In the end, they demonstrate the “ride on” habit of Filipino culture. Their insecurity is so great, and yet they refuse to get their own act together, so they rely on others to improve their image for them. Some Filipinos like to ride on some else’s salary so they can be free to get drunk at the sari-sari store each night; others like to ride on someone else’s fame to try and make themselves famous! Such pathetic solutions to insecurity and inferiority complex.
A summary of the event: Filipinos… oops, I mean some idiotic Filipinos who are Pacquiao fans… insult someone who refused to fight their “national hero,” which shouldn’t be a big issue. A commenter reacted to them, saying that they should get their act together (along with some other jokes that obviously were negligible). Then these Filipino fans react back, saying that their nation was insulted by this commenter, and they want to hang this commenter’s head, even if the issue was in fact their fault!
Filipinos like to raise hell for the smallest things other nationalities raise about us. Chip Tsao called us a nation of servants – which we are! The Greek Dictionary defined a Filipino as a “domestic helper” – which most OFWs tended to be then! The Filipinos chocolate bar was even hounded by some of our people for purportedly being an insult or a ” copyright infringement” of sorts. Well we have local brands using “American,” “Liberty” and names like that, and America does not complain! And like in Adam Carolla’s case, even when they’re the ones at fault, they pass the blame to the actual offended party! They will rape a girl and will even say that it’s the girl’s fault she got raped!
In the end, our nation has once again carved a notch in the hall of shame, with Filipinos raising hell over a criticism of them which is actually a result of their own actions! But this is not all Filipinos who made this shame. It was only a certain few: some Pinoy Pacquiao fans who are stupid and idiotic. The idiocy of a few helped bring down their entire country. On the account of the mistake of some, many have to suffer.
So whose fault is it? The stupid, idiotic ones among the Filipino Pacquiao fans.
I think these particular idiotic Filipino Pacquiao fans should be fried in their own lard.
