Leni Robredo IS what "happened" to the Philippines

Presumptive "vice president" Leni Robredo reportedly asked this question in a speech she delivered on the occassion of the awarding of the 2018 Liberal International Prize for Freedom to Leila De Lima who is in prison on charges of drug trafficking.

Lamenting what she thinks is a problem in Philippine society created by the administration of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, Robredo calls on all Filipinos...

"Let us focus on asking ourselves more deeply: How could we allow these injustices to happen, and when do we begin holding people accountable for their actions?" she said.

That is a question Filipinos, indeed, should ask themselves. But it should be asked in the context of the bigger picture that spans multiple Philippine governments.

Many injustices have gone unpunished and, worse, unexamined. The blatant hypocrisy in the Philippine Opposition led by the Yellowtards (which Robredo presumes to lead) is in suggesting that the Duterte government is the singular source of all that is bad in Philippine society today. And this is why the Opposition rhetoric fails today. It is patently partisans and, as such, is exclusive rather than inclusive in nature.


  1. We are just starting to get justice if you are not aware Ms. Vice President! In case you still can't figure out, justice was not present not until now! Our former leader loves the work of Pablo Escobar and through that killing will not only be chilling but freezing. Rape, murder, robbery, everything will be in chaos! How many people including government official, showbiz personalities got hooked in drugs? Why? because the past government allowed it to happen and only DU30 is trying to put an end to this cartel. Rice cartel should follow next! If you are worried maybe you are one of the beneficiary!
