“Paninindigan ko ang desisyon ko!” These are the words of a Noynoy supporter named Willbryan. These are words that do not connote any kind of confidence in his chosen leader, Noynoy Aquino. You can tell that the person behind such words did not use critical analysis before going to the polls and is already accepting the worst from Noynoy. His words can also be translated into one word: SUCKER. They sound like words coming from a person stuck with a bad deal.
The best way to kill a cockroach is to stomp your foot on it as hard as you can, dig your heels in and grind it down for a few minutes more before flushing it down the toilet or setting it alight. A soft pat might give it a chance to crawl its way back up again. You can’t take the risk of the bug surviving the hit. It’s been said that roaches can survive even a nuclear attack.
For some reason, roaches come to mind whenever I encounter a Noynoy supporter such as Willbryan. You just have to agree, some Noynoy supporters act like pests. They say cockroaches are mainly nocturnal and will run away when exposed to light. Well, just like roaches, Noynoy supporters were either not around or too defensive when it came to discussing Noynoy prior to the election and quickly scurried off when a hint of sense in what you say started to hit them. It’s like they feared being enlightened lest they have to change their mind. Nowadays, at the first sign of Noynoy faltering, we hear words such as “Paninindigan ko ang desisyon ko!” or worse “Let’s give Noynoy Aquino the benefit of the doubt.” Let’s get real here. If you used your gut prior to the election instead of your intellect, try using it again because even your gut will tell you that Noynoy is the worst thing that ever happened to Philippine politics since Erap.
Oh, how I’d hate to be a Noynoy supporter nowadays. Noynoy hasn’t even been sworn in yet and he is already embroiled in so many controversies of his own doing. Don’t get me started on what’s happening within the Liberal Party. There’s just too much infighting going on. Unfortunately, president-elect Noynoy cannot be relied upon to put an end to it. There’s just too much information about some kind of betrayal between Mar’s camp and the original Noynoy camp that it is so hard to keep up with what is going on. In fact, there is just so much to write about that I am starting to get writer’s block from not knowing which one I should write about first. I was actually tempted to publish a 2000 word article that will only say “IDIOT” because everything that is going on is simply idiotic!
The funny thing about Noynoy supporters is their obsession with numbers. During the campaign period, they were so obsessed with releasing dubious poll results indicating that Noynoy was on top. Nowadays, they are still fixated with numbers by insisting that Noynoy got an overwhelming mandate with his 40% vote. None of the numbers they present actually translate to how effective he is going to be as the leader of the Republic of the Philippines. They seem to forget that Erap also got an “overwhelming mandate” but went on to prove to be an ineffective leader. These Filipinos are still deluding themselves into thinking that they did the right thing by voting for Noynoy because that is what everyone wanted. A few avid Noynoy supporters were even quick to say “Buti nga sa inyo, talo ang kandidato nyo!” after the election. Well, we are even quicker to say, “Buti nga sa inyo, kulelat ang predidente nyo!” even before he is sworn in because the cracks have already started to show my dear Noynoy supporters.
Some bloggers who were adamant that Noynoy was “The One” in the lead up to the election are now choosing their words carefully. They are now blaming the infighting on hungry rats. Hmmm…cockroaches and rats, they are both pests to me. Here’s an excerpt from blogger Patrcio Mangubat’s sorry excuse:
Judging from the way groups behind Noynoy Aquino’s campaign are behaving, it would not surprise me that counter-elite groups are preparing for a showdown in the coming weeks or months ahead. The possibility of a destabilized Second Aquino administration is high, judging from the behavior of groups of the winning ticket. Aquino has not been proclaimed yet, but groups within his winning campaign team are behaving like hungry rats, nibbling the spoils and imagining themselves becoming rich for the next six years.
The infighting between members of the Hyatt 10 and the Kamaganak Incorporated is old hat already. There is another group, more sinister and hungrier than the first two. And it is no other than The Firm, yes, the Firm.
Bloggers like Patricio are so pathetic. They are still of the belief or want everyone to believe that what’s happening is not Noynoy’s fault or that Noynoy can do no harm. Haven’t they heard of command responsibility? We’ve said it again and again in this blog site: Noynoy Aquino’s administration will just be a repeat of his late mother, Cory Aquino’s stint because just like her, Noynoy cannot seem to get a firm grip over his subordinates. If I were him, I would simply get a gavel and hammer it fast and hard to stop all this non-sense. But Noynoy is not me so I believe that his administration will be fueled with infighting from here onwards.
Just to summarize, avid Noynoy supporters, you did not think about the consequences of your actions, now you simply shrug it off and say “papanindigan ko ang decision ko.” Meanwhile, there are countless poor people who will definitely suffer because of your arrogance and laziness. And then you want other people who did not believe in Noynoy to live with your mistake and ask us to forget you ever made a mistake in the first place. Unfortunately for all of us, if Noynoy Aquino can’t even unite his own party , there is no way in hell he can unite the whole country. So, get ready to rumble.
I’ll say it to you Noynoy supporters now before you believe any more denials coming from Conrado de Quiros or your favourite bloggers; or your own delusional self: The reason why the Philippines is in this predicament now with Noynoy Aquino is because you believed in his so called integrity and the integrity of the people who pushed for his candidacy. It is your fault and there is no other way out now but to suck it in. You are going to make us the butt of jokes around the world and that is just the least of the consequence of your actions. Because of that, I and many others here will surely kick you while you are down lest you come crawling back and vote for another loser like Noynoy Aquino in the next election.
