What is a dictator?
A dictator is a political leader who possesses absolute power. Whereas, a dictatorship is a state ruled by one dictator or by a small clique. The Philippine constitution prevents that from happening. That is why the country has three branches of government for check and balance. The late president Ferdinand Marcos cannot be a dictator for declaring martial law. The move was approved by the senate as per the law of the land.
Son of the Dictator Headlines
The mainstream media got it all wrong again. To refer to Bongbong Marcos as the son of the dictator is just clearly maligning his bid for the presidency. They can never be neutral. Hence, journalism is not for them. They are just propagandists. To spread fake news for their own interest is very undemocratic. Therefore, whoever calls any leader in the country a dictator is a hoax.
Presidential Bid of Bongbong Marcos
Bongbong Marcos files his candidacy for president in the upcoming 2022 elections. This is under the Duterte support party, PFP. His VP running mate is yet to be known. This early, the media propaganda already starts to occupy social media. However, they disgust more people than obtain sympathy. A good sign that the people are already aware of the truth. So, there’s a big chance that Marcos can win.
What is a Dictator?
A dictator is someone who has absolute power. He is a ruler who has total control over a country. There are no checks or balances to prevent abuse of power. The late President Ferdinand E. Marcos serves for over two decades in the Philippine presidency but he was not a dictator. He won re-elections over and over again. That made him stay that long. Martial law happens following the constitution when absolute power was given to him. This is to address the nation’s peace and order crises brought about by the uprising of activists. The media frenzy ruins the late President’s reputation.
Black Media Propaganda on Marcos as a Dictator
A media propaganda said that Marcos steals money from the country’s public coffers. Stories of torture of his opponents shocked the nation. After the 1986 Edsa revolution that topples him down, his rival’s widow then-President Corazon Aquino establishes the Presidential Commission on Good Government (PCGG). It intends to restore the institution’s integrity and credibility. But did not satisfy the people’s inquiries on the alleged “hidden wealth.”
Discrediting the Son of the Alleged Dictator
Some people wish Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. to apologize. But for what? Bongbong Marcos knows best when it comes to his father. Ferdinand, Sr. is only after the welfare of the majority of the Filipinos. His visions and works will continue when he becomes president in 2022. So much for the dictator story. They die by natural death because they are all lies. Only the truth prevails. So, you know who to vote for.
Ferdinand Marcos: Disperse the Crowd without Shooting Them
Leni Robredo and her cahoots always call the late President Ferdinand Marcos a dictator. This is to discredit his son, Bongbong Marcos’ presidential election bid in 2022. It was clear that during the alleged EDSA revolution, Marcos firmy ordered General Fabian C. Ver to disperse the crowd without shooting them.
General Ver argued with Marcos
The head of the military loyal to president Marcos argued with him. That they cannot keep on withdrawing their forces. However, the Minister of Defense at that time, the good former Senator Juan Ponce Enrile stood by the President’s order. A dictator could easily disperse EDSA in a bloody way. However, his love for the Filipinos was greater than his intention to remain in power.
EDSA was Bloodless because of Marcos
It was massive media propaganda that the EDSA revolution was a bloodless one because of the nuns. Even Bongbong Marcos did not understand at that time, why his father chose not to harm the people who turned against him. But that became a relevant lesson to him. That Filipinos must come first. Regardless of their family’s fate. See who really are the dictators with their actions.
Irate supporters of Bongbong Marcos express their disgust with most mainstream media that label the late Former President Ferdinand Marcos as a dictator. President Du30 earlier explained that he cannot call Marcos such since there is no legal basis for it. Even conviction of moral turpitude is not present. It is also lawful for him to be laid to rest at the Heroes Cemetery. There’s no proof that he’s an oppressor. Only facts that he’s an ex-national leader and a soldier. Those alone are more than enough reasons to give him military honors.

Marcos Centennial Stamps
The Philippine Postal Corporation or PhlPost issues a commemorative stamp to coincide with the birth centenary of the late President Ferdinand Marcos Sr. They are available for sale at P12 per piece. Victorino Z. Serevo designs it with Marcos’ portrait and signature. They are available in selected PhlPost branches until September 10, 2018. Marcos loyalists flock to the post offices to obtain them as a remembrance. They are not happy to hear some reports that next in line to have a stamp portrait is Hitler.
Elected to Office
A dictator is a ruler with total power over a country. Typically, one who has obtained power by force. The late President won the reelection for a second term from 1969 to 1972. Marcos saves the country under Martial Law and steps down in 1986 despite his victory. This is to avoid bloodshed during the EDSA revolt. If there is a dictator in a democratic country, then it is not Marcos but the late Former President Cory Aquino who assumed the top office after the mutiny, according to former Senator Juan Ponce Enrile.
Not a Plunderer
Calling Marcos a thief or a plunderer has no legal basis. No such accusations can stand in court after more than 30 years. The real score must be written in history but that remains debatable. He is only a dictator through media propaganda and for the outlaws. Not through the hearts and minds of the majority of law-abiding Filipinos.
No Human Rights Violations
Former Vice President Jejomar Binay was a critic of the Marcos patriarch during the martial law period. However, to this date, no single case is filed against the late president that can nail him down of any human rights violation. Binay only assisted claimants in the alleged martial law abuses from the Marcos estate. This is the reason why the ex-VP endorses Bongbong Marcos as Vice President. His still influential political network is working on stopping the opposition’s forces to block the young Marcos’ VP electoral protest which is his stepping stone for the Presidency in the near future.
