Senator Risa Hontiveros’ obsession with the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos is elevated to the higher level when she likened Mayor Sara of Davao, the president’s daughter to the most popular leader of the country. Of course, Inday Sara as she is fondly called can only be too proud. She reiterates by calling Hontiveros the spokesperson of terrorists.

[VIDEO]: RISA HONTIVEROS NANAWAGANG LABANAN ANG DIKTADORYANG DUTERTE
Senator Risa Hontiveros accuses Davao City Mayor Sara of using the tactic of the late President Ferdinand Marcos after the latter indicts her for “abetting rebellion.” Hontiveros defends the Maute group by saying that they are not rebels but they only fight for their own ideology.
At first, it was the President whom the Liberal Party assumes to follow the footsteps of ex- President Marcos against democracy defenders. Hontiveros mentions the likes of Soc Rodrigo, Lorenzo Tanada, and Ka Pepe Diokno.” Now, it’s his daughter. People are confused why the yellow faction keep on pressing on Marcos. Is that because of their highest elected official, Leni Robredo is about to be toppled by the namesake, Bongbong Marcos through the electoral protest?
Mayor Sara recently resorts to Facebook to express on Hontiveros’ statements and said that she is “abetting rebellion”. This is Hontiveros’ justification of the Marawi City conflict. Maute Group act doesn’t fall either in rebellion or invasion, she said. This prompted Inday Sara to inquire why Hontiveros is acting like the terrorists’ spokesperson?
Hontiveros is disappointed by Inday Sara’s remarks whom she considered as “friendly acquaintance”. “The Mayor and I are friendly to each other for some years now, I respect her as a fellow woman leader,” Hontiveros said. Obviously, they have two different beliefs when it comes to the Maute Group’s illegal violence in Marawi. After all, they burned government facilities, killed civilians, and took over public properties before the president decided to pursue them using military powers.
