The Unfair Treatment of Irene Marcos by the Atenean Brats Explains UP and Princeton’s Anti-Imee Marcos Stunts

By: Elena Grace Flores

An Atenean is one whose mind, body and spirit, have been molded according to the Jesuit philosophy of education. It is exemplified and implemented in various Jesuit-run Ateneo schools in the Philippines. The students are generally from wealthy families. Recently Ateneo students are demanding an apology when Irene Marcos was invited and attended the alumni event. Acting like brats, they say that, ‘The role of Ateneo is not to condone the fabrication of lies, but to be a pillar of human rights in a society that celebrates the mockery of the truth.’ This is in unison to the hypocritical treatment of the UP and Princeton to Imee Marcos, another daughter of the late President, Ferdinand Marcos. They deny her of her credentials as influenced by the elite and activists.

A Mockery?

Ateneo De Manila University’s student council condemns the presence of Irene Marcos during the launch of the campus’ Arete Ampitheatre. It calls it a “mockery” and a “grave insult” to martial law survivors. In a statement , Sanggunian ng mga Paaralang Loyola ng Ateneo de Manila (Sanggu) demands an apology from the Arete administration. It wants an explanation of why Marcos, the third child of the demonized first couple Ferdinand and wife Imelda, was there in the first place.

Invited but Mocked

Sanggu said the amphitheater’s director confirms Marcos’ invite to the event. For them, it is “ironic.” Sanggu cites the use of the amphitheater to stage “Dekada ’70” and “Desaparecidos” – both depict the abuses during the administration of Irene’s father.They also refer to the the move as a “shameless compliance” and “disrespect” to Ateneo’s ideals. Doing so is like erasing crimes allegedly committed during Martial Law. Are elite Catholics this inconsiderate and judgmental to others?

The Unfair Treatment is a False Vindication

“Arete is the university’s central space for creative, adaptive, and independent thinking”. For them, those are the values that the Marcoses allegedly destroyed but this is contrary to the massive of Filipinos who are the witnesses of their pro-people but anti-oligarchy system of governance. Arete’s invitation is a is deal for them because to mingle with a Marcos appears as a form of shameless compliance to the very movement that the Ateneo vehemently opposes. They are afraid to erase the Martial Law propaganda from history. It might be beneficial to Imee Marcos’ campaign efforts for the 2019 Senatorial Elections where she runs as Senator.

Imee Marcos is Likely to be Senator

The eldest daughter of the ex-President Marcos runs for senator under the Nacionalista Party. She forges an alliance with Davao City Mayor Sara Du30’s Hugpong ng Pagbabago regional political party. This is Marcos’ first senatorial bid. Her brother Bongbong Marco is a former Senator from 2010 to 2016. His electoral protest against Vice President Leni Robredo awaits the decision from the Supreme Court. Gov. Marcos is a hot bet among overseas contract workers and would likely to win a Senate seat pretty soon.

No Diploma for Imee Marcos is Due to her Alliance’s Anti-Oligarchy Stint

The highest official of Ateneo de Manila University apologizes for the said action and currently resigns from the post. It is clear now that some Catholic institutions like schools and churches connive with the oligarchs whose businesses would likely suffer from the present administration in alliance with the Marcoses that prioritize the common Filipinos. No wonder the yellow media works overtime in discrediting the Du30 and Marcos families nowadays.

  1. Hanggang ngayon,martial law pa rin ang topic.Bakit di pagusapan ang mga ginawang kapalpakan ng mga sumunod na administrasyon.Dahil ba sa kayo ay mga dilawan din?Unfair lahat ang mga ginagawa nyo samantalang napakadaming magagandang bagay ang nagawa noon ni FEM.Ngayon saan pupulotin ang mga Pilipino.Kong tingnan ng mga ibang lahi ang mga karamihan ng pinoy d2 sa ibang bansa ay basura at di iginagalang.Ngayon lang medyo umangat dhil kay Pres.Duterte. Masyado kayong bitter dhil puro negative ang inyong tinitingnan.Walang mangyayari sa bansang Pilipinas kong lahat ay puro galit ang paiiralin.Ano ba ang ginawa ng mga anak ni FEM sa inyo????Binastos ba kayo???,Kayo ang nambabastos dhil sa puso nyo di ninyo matanggap na bumabagsak na ang kayo at alam na ng mga tao ang totoong mga naganap noong panahon ni FEM.

    1. Ang mga elitista at oligarchs na karamihan ay mga sagradong katoliko kuno na lumaban at nagpasimuno na patalsikin ang pamilyang Marcos ay mga salot sa ating bansa.
      Mga sagradong katoliko ?.Ang inyong mga puso ay punongpuno ng paghihiganti ,kasakiman at mapanlait, at iniisip niyo lang ang inyong mga sarili.Wala kayong pagmamahal sa katulad namin maralita at mangmang.Lahat ng mga”yellowtards” ay pawang baluktot ang pagiisip at walang puso.Kaya napapanahon na , kaming mga “silent majority” ay pababalikin na namin ang tunay na nagmamahal sa mga Pilipino at bansang Pilipinas, ang mga Marcoses.Sila ang muling magaangat sa mga mahihirap at muling mamamayagpag ang Pilipinas sa buong mundo.Naniniwala kami na sa pamumuno ng mga Dutertes at Marcoses ay gaganda muli ang aming mga buhay at bansang Pilipinas.
      Sa halalan ng Mayo 13 para sa senado ay iboto lahat ang kaalyado ni Presidente Duterte at lalonglalu na si Gov. Imee Marcos#46.Huwag iboto ang mga dilawan at lahat ng mga kandidato na suportado ng mga elitista at oligarchs ay huwag iboto at ideretso sila sa inidoro.
