An open letter written by popular blogger and Duterte supporter Krizette Laureta Chu in response to Leni Robredo’s statement that Duterte’s martial law comment is ‘worst Christmas gift’ has been making the rounds online.
“You know why there is no outrage or fear from the general public despite your daily “warnings” of martial law?” Ms. Chu begins the open letter by asking VP Robredo.
Ms Chu continued: “Because most Filipinos would rather have a dictatorship under Duterte than fake freedom under another LP-led government. Harsh, but true.”
“For your sake, I hope you understand just how unwelcome the LP is in this country,” Ms. Chu told Ms. Robredo.
Ms. Chu said that no Filipinos want Martial Law but if pushed to choose between a Duterte dictatorship and the specter of the return of LP to power, millions would quickly jump into the Martial Law bandwagon.
Nobody wants Martial Law, but if Filipinos were pushed into a corner, and asked to choose between the grey void of a Duterte dictatorship and the swirling blackness of an LP-led government, madam, millions would jump into the grey void faster than you can say “Nakakaririmarim.”
“I’m sure there’s a part of you that will understand why a homeless survivor of Typhoon Yolanda would rather choose Duterte over you, even if you represent all “Cory-ish” (image projection) qualities–saintly, kind, pure–and he represents the exact opposite. I’m sure you won’t take it against the Filipino people who are waiting for the free tuition/hospitalization with bated breath if they chose someone who can deliver,” Ms. Chu told Robredo. “Aminin natin, if your own life were in danger, you would choose a Duterte over a Leni, di ba?” she asked.
Ms. Chu told Robredo to denounce her Liberal party mates if indeed her heart is for the good of the country.
You really want the best for this country? Then cut the strings that tie you to your useless, greedy, manipulative party.
You want the best for this country? Then play fair! Call out your partymates like Leila de Lima and other LP lawmakers reportedly involved in drugs. Call them out if you really work for the people and not for the LP party.
“OK lang sa inyo as a lawyer and as a VP na bastos si Leila at hindi pinapansin ang summon?” Ms. Chu solicited Robredo’s opinion on de Lima ignoring the summons. “As an elected official of this country and the leader of the political party of which she is a member, you should also use your voice to berate your own members, or anything else you say loses its power because you have lost credibility, favoring a few,” chided Robredo for failing to discipline her party mate.
Ms. Chu issued a warning to Robredo and wrote:
When the day comes that many of us decide to fight Duterte when and if he abuses his power, we would want to do it alongside a real hero of the people, not a puppet who will just shuffle us along from one tyranny to the next.
Tagalugin ko na lang para malinaw: SUKANG SUKANG SUKANG SUKA NA KAMI SA LP. KUNG HINDI HO KAYO LALAYAS SA LP, WAG NA HO KAYONG UMASANG SUSUPORTAHAN NAMIN KAYO KAHIT KAILAN. MAGHAHANAP NA LANG KAMI NG IBANG HIHINGAN NG TULONG.
Ms. Chu also asked Robredo to stop issuing press releases everyday because is just makes her lamer by the minute.
And yes, stop, please. All these everyday statements make you seem lamer and lamer and lamer by the minute. Use your voice for real opposition. The more you talk, the more you dilute its power. Hindi ho namin kailangan malaman ang running commentaries ninyo. Yung mga gaya nito: “Worst gift for Christmas” statement. Parang walang sense na.
