A post of a movie director making a sweeping accusation against the previous administration of benefitting from the drug money is making the rounds online.
On a Facebook post, movie director and actor Manny Castaneda wrote an intriguing post that would further create a sharp division between the Duterte and the Aquino supporters.
In the post, Mr. Castaneda noted that the most vociferous critics of President Duterte are Senators de Lima and Drilon (known allies of the former president) after the president presented the narco-list to the media. Delima immediately accuses Pres. Duterte of a witch-hunt while Drilon demands adherence to the rule of law. Likewise, the dwindling yellow army questions the veracity of the list.
Moving on, Mr. Castaneda also noted that “instead of being jubilant, it was noticeable that the yellow personalities became suspiciously defensive. Everything was done to discredit the list and to make it look irrelevant and useless. All concerted efforts seem very suspicious indeed. There must be a more substantial reason for this tirade other than just sheer dislike for Pres. Duterte as a political adversary. The noose is getting tight, maybe?” he asked.
The irony of all ironies…
Mr. Castaneda lamented that despite holding voluminous intel reports in the possession of the government, the former administration did nothing but bury their heads in the sand, perhaps hoping that the problem will go away.
There is no doubt that the Aquino administration was fully aware of the existence of narco-politics. All salient information was at their fingertip. It is, therefore, no surprise that Mar Roxas was able to provide explicit data of the drug menace in Davao to debunk Duterte’s assertion that illegal drug trade in Davao has been placed under control.
Ironically, despite all the vital information in their possession, they did nothing to arrest the problem. It seems that they ignored it and looked the other way like it never existed. Consequently, they allowed the illegal activity to proliferate virtually unhampered.
Hence, by condoning the illegal drug trade to proliferate and thrive under their noses, the previous administration is guilty of protectionism.
It is quite logical that when one allows something to happen or to continue to operate, it can only mean you condone it. In this case, it is defined as protectionism.
Before wrapping up his post, Mr. Castaneda accuses the Pnoy administration of receiving money from the drug lords.
It is common knowledge that there is a lot of money to be had in this illegal trade, a whole lot of drug money … by the billions! With all the circumstances mentioned, I cannot help but conclude that the Aquino administration was a recipient of drug-money. It is only this motive that can explain their behavior. If this is true… the Aquino administration has a very thick blood on their hands, blood of victims who died and lives destroyed due to illegal drugs. This is more deplorable than stealing from the coffers of the government. May the good Lord bless their souls.
And lastly, he left his readers something to ponder on that reads:
(Speaking of God, I am open to the possibility that priests and bishops receive drug money in a form of donations. If they can do it with jueteng, they can do it with drugs as well.)
