12 Nov When Daddy Wants To Control Everything You Want To Say
JUAN SAYS: The oligarchs are losing it. They are losing the war of controlling how the “masang Pilipino” would collectively think. Indeed they are attacked by trolls and keyboard warriors for the simple reason that many are already sick and tired of how the media conditions the minds of the people on what is actually happening and how they should think, respond and react to situations. We at JUAN are glad that people are already voicing their opinions and form their own conclusions, facts-based or opinion-based, it doesn’t really matter. What matters is people are now thinking. People are now seeing what they were told not to see, and people are already saying something. Gone are the days when the oligarchs (thereby owning media companies) controlled the people, today, the people control the oligarchs. Truth be told, that is a good sign.
We trace it back to Duterte’s landslide win, and now his supporters are stronger than ever, understanding what he says, even the things that he doesn’t say.
Sadly, Bam and Maria have forgotten what democracy is all about. Do they need to be reminded that they themselves fought for democracy and the right for people to voice their opinions? The very people who believed in the pillars of democracy are the very same people who are tearing it down. Let the people speak. Let the people decide for themselves collectively. Because that, dear JUANs, is what we all fought for in 1986.
Here is Atty. Bruce Rivera’s open letter to Bam and Maria, and we couldn’t agree more.
Dear Bam Aquino and Maria Ressa,
WHO THE FUCK MADE YOU GOD AND TAKE BACK WHAT IS NOT YOURS?
Social media is there because it is the checks and balance of a mainstreams media that has lost all credibility. And how do you think can Duterte afford to pay all his alleged trolls.
Social media is for small people like me who are not lucky sons of bitches like you Bam who can easily win elections because an uncle who looks like you and has his face plastered in every P500 bill carries your family name as well. Now, you want to control it.
And Miss Ressa, you are mainstream media. You control an empire that can run stories and has all the platform to inform people. Why are you bothered by small time bloggers and or trolls to misinform?
Clearly, you have lost all your credibility that is why you now want to destroy the little social media voices because that is the only way you can limit the information and tell people your version of the truth.
Kung ilagay kaya namin kayong dalawa sa isang malaking banga…mga halimaw!!!
