Without any after thought, this is an affront against the so-called "people's rights" that they have openly professed. Surprisingly, the communist Party list Congressmen are silent. Is this due to the effect of the all-out war against the communist-terrorist New People's Amy declared by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo?
While their silences very obvious, media hype are focused on stories that would bear heavily against the Arroyo administration thus obliterating the positive moves and gains of our country.
Opinion writers, especially those who are known to be "sleeping" with the enemy of the state, are toying with a new nomenclature "leftist militants," "legal progressives" ad others. Obviously, all these are intended to sugar coat and hide the real character of theses personalities.
However, the Filipinos should be warned against this unworthy and malignant impersonation. They are the dangerous s specie of "militants" and progressives, if there are any, for they do not envision the reforms, improvement, or strengthening of our present system of governance. Their ulterior motive is the overthrow of our country's democratic governance and trampling the very freedoms that our forefathers had fought and shed blood.
They are not simple militants or progressives. They are communists whose ultimate goal is the complete destruction of the very fibers of our democratic life. In reality, they are the devouring monsters manipulating our people's minds and hearts, inflame emotions, and has contrived a web of deception spawned ll over the Filipino community.
To quote Rico Hizon, a Filipino business and finance anchorman of BBC-World during the program "Straight Talk" aired over a news television station, while exuding pride, he said, "…. In my work, I tried my best to raise the Filipino flag. I'm proud to be a Filipino. I am happy that while going over the wire reports, I read so much positive gains achieved by our country in terms of investments and foreign capitalist confidence. But these are not highlighted by our country's national media. Only the negative political stories are given prominence. I am sad, deeply sad'" he said. Explaining that despite foreign investors' upbeat on the gains achieved by our country, the negative reports have stymied their interest. "That is bad for our country," he pointed out.
We surmise that Rico is oblivious of the fact that the communist led media operators are currently having a heyday mounting black and bleak propaganda against government. Indeed, while the communist personalities, who are now masquerading as militants, progressives and members of Congress are now going "low-profile", they are efficiently manipulating non-communist Filipinos to step-in and do the 'front act' facing the camera.
This is a blatant display of character that only skilled manipulators could accomplish and exploit to the hilt. Manipulation and situation exploitation are the main ingredients of deception that only the Maoist communist are popularly known to be experts of.
Efficiently they have towed religiously the doctrine of Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, one of the pillars of communism, as he said, "Use democracy to destroy democracy, Use nationalism to destroy nationalism, Use parliament to destroy parliament."
