According to news report from different media outlets, the boat captain backed out from his supposed meeting with President Duterte because he was traumatized by the incident.
Upon hearing the boat captain’s reason for backing out, Manila Bulletin writer and social media blogger Krizette Chu described the weather-beaten, hardy warrior of the sea who fights with the elements daily as another snowflake.
“After everything, given the chance by the President to meet with him, he now backs out because he was traumatized,” Chu lamented.
Chu asked our OFWs seafarers whom she described as brusque if they were quick to get traumatized? The same goes with the fishermen of Zambales if they also felt traumatized?
Chu said this was the first time she heard of a rough and rough “KAPITAN” (not just another fisherman but a kapitan who commands vessels who couldn’t meet the President, one who could actually help him) because he has trauma.
Chu joked that as the Minister of Defense, she will send psychologist to the kapitan and all his crew, get their stories, and when they’re ready, have them face the President, the Senate, the international media, international tribunal if they want.
Chu promised not to stop until she gets to the bottom and find the truth.
He skipped the meeting with the President because he has “trauma.”
Snowflake din pala ang mga weather-beaten, hardy warriors of the sea who fight with the elements daily? After everything, given the chance by the President to meet with him, he now backs out kasi may trauma?
Ang daming OFWs dito na maglalayag. Mga maton. Mabilis ba kayo ma trauma? Yung mga mangingisda from Zambales dati na trauma din ba?
Jusko, it’s the first time to hear a tough and rough KAPITAN (not just another fisherman but a kapitan who commands vessels) who couldn’t meet the President, the one man who could actually help him, because he has trauma.
As the Minister of Revenge, I will send psychologists to the kapitan and all the fishermen involved, get stories from them, and then when they’re ready, have them face the President, the Senate, international media, international tribunals if they want. Hindi ako titigil hanggang hindi ko makuha ang katotohanan.
Ganito na lang ba? We damage our reputation as a weakling country tapos lulusot tayo sa totoong imbestigasyon.
Di ako papayag. YOU WANT ATTENTION, we will give this top attention.
In a follow-up FB post, Chu said that she grew up in a coastal town (Leyte) and know how tough fishermen and salt of the earth types could be.
She spoke to fishermen who lost all (boats, families) except the shirts on their back in their town in the aftermath of Yolanda and said that none of them were too weak to meet someone who could help them. Because the fishermen and victims of Yolanda super typhoon found comfort in sharing their stories, grateful for the help.
Chu cursed those who are angry at her for finding it fishy that El Kapitan who wasn’t even attacked physically, gets “traumatized” after talking endlessly to the media, and could not meet the President.
I come from a coastal town. I know how tough fishermen and salt of the earth types could be. I spoke to fishermen who were battered and lost so much, lost all except for the shirts on their backs, during Typhoon Yolanda. Lost their boats, their families.
None of them were too weak to be traumatized to meet with people who could help them. They found comfort in sharing their stories. They were grateful for the help.
So fuck me if you think I find it fishy that El Kapitan who wasn’t even attacked physically, gets “traumatized” after yakking endlessly to the media, and could not meet the President.
