American Propaganda against Ferdinand Marcos
American lawyer, Robert Swift allegedly announces that litigation against the Marcoses is set to happen in 2022. This is for the alleged Ferdinand Marcos’s ill-gotten wealth for 3 decades ago. This is not a surprise anymore to many Filipinos. American media is very notable to spread hearsays against the Marcoses. Since Bongbong Marcos is likely to run as President in 2022, so, here they go again.
American Litigator in the News
This news first resurfaced in 2019 in Rappler. Now, it seems recycled. Swift works for the anti- Marcos on the Martial Law class action suit. Several other cases on human rights abuses followed since the late 1980s. He urged the Philippine government not to give up on finding other ill-gotten wealth, the news said.
Can’t Make Use of the Philippines
This kind of propaganda does not work anymore nowadays. The public already knows that the court cases against the Marcoses are dismissed due to lack of evidence. Just like what former First Lady Imelda Marcos said; they are not the thieves but the victims of extortion. Why do some Americans do not want Bongbong Marcos to be president? As a good leader, they can’t make use of the country anymore with his brilliance and influence. He has the power to make the Philippines great again.
