The so-called yellow media is quick enough to report on the various criticisms against the likely Senator to be Imee Marcos after she urges Filipinos to “move on” from the days of her father’s rule which was merely a “feud” between the Marcoses and the Aquinos. However, most of these known biased news outlets, ignore the sentiments of the majority. They have no clue what real people via social media are screaming about – which is to investigate who really killed Ninoy whose death was blamed to the late President Ferdinand Marcos who helped his family survive in exile. Perhaps it is time for them to use Google Analytics or other software to gauge their conclusions.

[VIDEO]: Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos told Filipinos who continue criticizing her family to move on from Martial Law. (Please note that the Philippines can never have a dictator because of its democratic system of the 3 branches of government.)
The Opposition’s Attempt to Malign Marcos
The critics view Imee Marcos’ Speech as an attempt to frame the tragedies of Ferdinand Marcos’ regime as just a feud with the Aquinos. This is in contrast to how it was framed before. The LP set it like the people fought against a dictator. To quote Senator Kiko Pangilinan in his reaction to Imee’s Speech, “It was never an issue between the Marcoses and the Aquinos but an issue between the Marcoses and the entire nation that suffered immensely from the abuses, the greed and the oppressive and tyrannical rule of Marcos the dictator.”
Bam Aquino’s Closure Demand
As long as the Marcoses don’t own up to the wrongs they have done, the people cannot have closure, said Ninoy’s nephew. To quote Senator Bam Aquino, “It’s hard to get over something if there is no closure, especially if they keep on telling the public that the guilty party did no wrong.” However, ASEC Mocha Uson argues against him. It’s not the Marcoses who did wrong but the LP. She says that the Aquinos are refusing to disclose who the real killer of Ninoy is. After 2 terms, the Aquinos should have found out already. This is if they are keen on finding the culprit, she said.
LP Wants an Apology
The Liberal Party is denouncing Imee’s speech about moving on from the past of the Marcoses. Before they talk about moving on they should first express remorse and apologize. Bongbong Marcos already asked in the past what he should apologize for?
Human Rights Bluff
The Liberal Party is asking Imee Marcos to think on how the victims of Marcos’ human rights violations will “move on”. To quote them, “When there is no remorse, not an act of atonement, not acceptance and recognition of wrongdoing on their part? How can the Filipino people move on when the Marcos family continue to deny the billions of dollars in unexplained wealth that ran our economy to the ground and earned the late dictator the title world’s greatest thief?” Mind you, the Marcoses are never convicted of corruption in any court here and abroad.
Seats for Senator are the Judge
Neither Du30 or Marcos are dictators according to PCOO Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson. She says that Cory Aquino would fit the term more as she hasn’t won the election. The 2019 poll is coming soon. If Gov. Imee Marcos wins as Senator, it would mean that the stigma on the Marcoses is over. This should make the LPs realize their mistakes.
