Agree or Disagree? “Ang formula ng Dilaw sa kapangyarihan ay paninira.” – former DLSU Professor

“Ang formula ng Dilaw sa kapangyarihan ay paninira.”

This is the bold statement of former DLSU History professor Van Ybiernas with regards to Dilaw’s formula to gain power in Philippine politics.

Ybiernas remarked that the Dilawans are like this because they never became popular due to their accomplishments.

“Never kasi sila sumikat dala ng kanilang sariling accomplishments.”

Ybiernas went on to cite political heavyweights, in fact pillars of the Dilawan party as examples to drive home his point that the tried and tested formula of the Dilawans to gain power is to destroy their enemies in politics because they have pedestrian accomplishments. In other words, they have no or little accomplishments to speak of.

“Think about it. Ninoy Aquino? Ano ba talaga ang nagawa nyan noong nabubuhay pa siya? Reporter sa Korean War? Ipinakulong ni Marcos?

That’s it!

Ah, youngest mayor ng isang bayan sa Tarlac kasi bata siya ng mga hacendero.

Napaka pedestrian ng “accomplishments” nya.

Cory Aquino? E asawa lang siya ni Ninoy. Sumakay lang sa pagkamatay ng asawa. That’s it!

Noynoy Aquino? Antagal na congressman, walang ginawa. Nag senador sandali, wala rin ginawa.”

“Ang common denominator nila ay paninira sa nakaupo bago sila umupo,” Ybiernas argued.

Ybiernas added that this family was kind of fortunate they have issues with two former Presidents, which put them in the position to benefit politically.

“Pero swerte ang mga Aquino kasi may issue sila laban kina Marcos at GMA.”

Ybiernas elaborated on his previous assertion that this family have a knack for piggybacking on the political misfortunes of their political enemies and benefited from it.

“Sikat si Makoy kaso medyo nagsuffer ang popularity dahil sa economic crisis na naranasan ng bansa bunga na rin ng pandaigdigang krisis.

Si Noynoy ang pinaka swerte kasi sobrang unpopular ni GMA kahit na lahat ng Pilipino naniniwala na napakagaling ng Ang Pandak.

In both cases, sumakay na lang ang mga Aquino sa unpopularity nina Marcos at GMA.

Moving forward, Ybiernas explained why this President wanna be will fail to benefit if she continues to employ the political formula of this popular political family.

“Ang problema ni Madam Bowbah ngayon, sobrang popular si Duterte. So ang ginagawa nila ay nagfafabricate ng galit laban kay Duterte. Ginagawa nila ang lahat para bumagsak ang popularidad ni Duterte kasi nandun nakasalalay ang tagumpay nila.”

Ybiernas reiterated his earlier statement for more emphasis.

“Uulitin ko: NAKASALALAY ANG TAGUMPAY NG DILAW NGAYON SA UNPOPULARITY NI DUTERTE HINDI SA SARILI NILANG ACCOMPLISHMENTS.”

Ybiernas’ next few statements reinforced what many pro-Dutertes have suspected along — the incessant black propaganda against the Duterte administration is a strategy to bring down the popularity of the President. Otherwise, their tried and tested tactic that brought down Marcos will never work.

“Kaya niraratrat nila sa mga bayarang media. Inaaraw-araw.

Konektado rin sa mga kapanalig nila sa international media para banatan din regularly.

Nagpapakalat ng hashtags kaliwa’t kanan sa socmed.

Pinagsasalita ang mga akademiko at “eksperto” (kuno) laban sa administrasyon.

Naghahanap ng mga ordinaryong mamamayan na dismayado sa pamahalaan at pinapalabas na iyan ang nararamdaman ng lahat.

In short, binibilog ang ulo natin kasi unlike kay Marcos in 1986 at GMA noong 2010, si Duterte sa 2021 ay nananatiling mahal ng taumbayan.

When the black propaganda against President Duterte failed to work, as shown by the surveys 5 years later, the Opposition pointed guns against the Cabinet members of the administration.

At kung di nila kaya diretsuhin ng bato si Duterte, idadaan nila sa mga pinaka vulnerable na mga miyembro ng gabinete kagaya ng bugok na si Duque at ng payasong si Roque.

Ybiernas ended the FB opinion piece by describing the Dilawan political strategy in 3 short sentences.

“Wala talagang bago at kapaki-pakinabang sa bayan na diskarte ang mga Dilaw.

Puro pang bugok ang estilo.

Kunsabagay, bugok nga kasi.”
