In his disappointment over the small Edsa celebration, former senator Rene Saguisag calls the President the “new Macoy.” He refers to the late strongman Ferdinand Marcos whom he calls a dictator. He also accuses Digong the same. Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella said that only expresses his dismay and calling the president as such is not necessary. Meanwhile, senator Juan Ponce Enrile who launches the mutiny that is turned into revolution by the Liberal Party agrees on the simple event. He said that he and his men gambled for their lives – and other people has no right to make a feast out of their sacrifice.

[VIDEO]: Rodrigo Duterte challenges President Benigno Aquino III to cite an instance where he was, supposedly, a “dictator.”
Du30 is not a Dictator just like Marcos
During the president’s campaign speech in Davao, he challenges former President Noynoy Aquino to provide an instance that he acts like a dictator. The late Ferdinand E. Marcos as per Enrile also just follow the laws and implement them. Just like the president who has the political will to impose proper governance. He mentions that he’s not like Aquino who is a “sissy” president. He also throws a blow to then Vice President Jejomar Binay as the dictator of the people’s money but this is cleared later on as political stunt for their alliance that is now slowly emerging.
Edsa Shocked the World but it is Twisted
Saguisag is sad to have a simple and quiet Edsa celebration because according to him, that was one bright shining moment from which Filipinos shocked and awed the whole world,” The government must not ignore that. But reiterated that its the rights of the president, because he is allegedly the new Macoy or Marcos. He is not surprised with the decision, he added. Malacañang just holds a “simple and quiet” commemoration of the 31st anniversary of Edsa on February 24. Enrile made sure that in every opportunity, he corrects the media propaganda regarding the People’s revolution. It is clear from him that it was not intended for the yellow regime – the reason why Senator Honasan’s men hold several coup d’etat against the late President Cory Aquino. The President urges the Filipinos to move on.
The Democracy Promise becomes Communism
Former President Ferdinand E. Marcos warns Filipinos that one cannot distinguish politicians as democratic according to their words or speeches about democracy. It can be seen through their actions by not respecting the rights of the people to vote – just like with the electoral protest filed by his son against the Liberal Party Vice President Leni Robredo.
Freedom of the Press becomes Misinformation Drive
After Martial Law, if the people do not listen, watch, or read news, they are not informed but if they do, they are misinformed. This goes on for more than 30 years but thanks to social media. The public can now express their sentiments and opinions to various important issues of the country.
