In the wake of the Marawi crisis, critics take this as an opportunity to sow more confusion rather than rallying behind the President.
Worse, Duterte’s critics insinuate Duterte had a hand in the Marawi terror attack as a prelude to declaring Martial Law in the country.
Francis Baraan, a vocal critic of Duterte on Twitter floated the conspiracy theory PRRD conspired with the Maute group to justify Martial Law declaration in Mindanao.

Ariana Brigida agreed with Baraan and tweeted: “It’s not unlikely. So pakalat din ba yung other bombings i.e. Quiapo? He’s dying to declare ML over the whole country.”

Journalist Ira Panganiban laments on Facebook how low some people can get because of their greed for power.
“When Isis attacked Paris, the French pulled together as one.
When extremists hit the US, the Americans banded as one country.
When terrorists hit Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and Europe, their citizens had one voice against violence.
When extremists hit the Philippines, politicians and partisans take this opportunity to sow more hatred and confusion to divide the nation.
What kind of animals are you that you use death and violence as a platform for your greed.
You’re not like them extremists. You are worse than them. You have no ideals, just greed for power.
Mahalin sana kayo ni Lord!”
Meanwhile, journalist Jojo Robles turned the table around by accusing Duterte’s political foes as the mastermind behind the Marawi crisis.
Setup yung Marawi crisis para makapagdeklara ng martial law?
So pumunta si Digong sa Moscow, karay-karay ang 300 katao, tapos binigyan niya ng hudyat ang Maute na sumalakay. Para makauwi na naman siya kahit di pa tapos ang schedule ng biyahe, matapos siyang magdeklara ng ML habang nasa Moscow?
Napaka-hightech naman ninyo mag-isip. Ganito nalang kaya:
Pumunta si Digong sa Moscow. Binigyan ninyo ang hudyat ang Maute (at pera, siyempre).
Pero akala niyo hindi siya uuwi — parang si Leni lang nung bagyo. Hindi din niyo inakalang magdedeklara siya ng ML. Hindi nyo nga naisip na matutuloy pa din ang meeting nila ni Putin. Kaya nabago bigla ang plano niyo.
Kaya ngayon, setup na lang ni Duterte ang Marawi, kasi baka kayo pa ang matukoy na pasimuno.
Mas posible, di ba?
Your thoughts, please!
