In memory of the late strongman’s birthday recently, Malacanang palace published an article in its Official Gazette saying that then president Ferdinand E. Marcos declared martial law because of communism threat in Mindanao. It also mentioned about his stepping down during the 1986 EDSA revolution to avoid bloodshed. Critics cannot take these truths and resort to social media to express their disagreement. The palace said that it only issued what is in the records.

[VIDEO]: MANILA, Philippines (3rd UPDATE) – In just the span of a few hours on Sunday, September 11, the government’s Official Gazette posted a photo of Ferdinand Marcos on Facebook, edited the photo’s caption, deleted the photo altogether, and then reposted the photo with a shorter caption.
Duterte is for the Truth
Anti-Marcos citizens cannot accept that they are brainwashed by the people who thought were their heroes. If they are keen enough to know the truth, they can easily know that the leaders whom they looked up to were the hoax ones. President Duterte in for the truth for once in the country’s long history of lies under the Aquinos.
Tribute to the Best President
The Official Gazette’s photo was a tribute for the late president on his 99th birth anniversary. It featured a quote, taken from Marcos’ inaugural address on December 30, 1965, that read: “There are many things we do not want about our world. Let us not just mourn them. Let us change them.”
People should know the Truth
Thr truth really Hurts
Pro-Marcos groups are amused by the actions of the anti-Marcoses. They are just like children denied of their lollipops. if they have the common sense and love for the country, they should seek the truth first before bashing anyone or anything on social that made them look like fools!
