The choice to vote Mocha Uson senator of the Philippines is what the Yellowtards fought for in 1986

It's bizarre that people who keep screeching about the Philippines' supposed descent to authoritarianism are the same ones who also screech about Filipinos being given the option to vote for Mocha Uson.

Uson had recently been fielded by the PDP Laban as a senatorial candidate...

Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) Secretary General and House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez said Friday the three are on the party's list of candidates for the Senate. 
He made the disclosure at the mass-oathtaking of new members of  PDP-Laban at the Plaza Independencia in Cebu.

This is, indeed, the power accorded to a democratic people that Filipino democrats supposedly fought for -- the right to choose Mocha Uson. The word Laban after all means "fight". Laban encapsulates the ideology of the current Philippine Opposition led by the Liberal Party whose members and leadership flash the renowned "L" hand gesture at every opportunity.

Mocha Uson has every right to run for senator and if she wins, Filipinos deserve to be represented by Mocha Uson in the Senate. If a convicted mutineer like Antonio Trillanes could be a Philippine 'senator', why not Mocha Uson, right?
