Please Raissa, kailan nyo matatanggap na 99% of Filipinos love this government. I just came from teh Philippines a month ago. Lahat ng nakausap ko – taxi drivers, ordinary people, upscale -they all loved this government. Only from you and all of you guys ay puro negative ang sinasabi. We love our country, we love our President, and we love what’s going on, so please what are you doing with us!!!
A woman’s voice, could only manage to say the word “okay” in response to the woman identified only by her nickname as Margie, whose apparently a Duterte supporter residing in the US.
The small audience, around two dozen people, attending Raissa Robles’ book launch and talk at Church of St. Francis of Assisi, NYC were equally surprised how Margie intense confrontation of the former.
Netizen Francis Ibanez remarks this was the first time he witnessed a Filpino expressed her love for the country. “Ngayon mo lang nakita na passionate ang pinoy na iexpress ang pagmamahal nila sa bayan at gobyerno. dati, makakarinig ka lang ng “proud pinoy” o “pinoy pride” pag may nanalo sa boxing, beauty o singing contest. dati, nagagalit lang ang pinoy kapag may foreigner na may sinabing hindi maganda about the philippines or filipinos. pag kapwa pinoy ang namimintas, dinedeadma lang NOON. ngayon mo lang nakikita ang pinoy defending the honor of their president and their country. kaya nakakahiya maging parte ng oposisyon sa panahong ito.”
Netizen Dred Purca says Raissa must be feeling jittery of her speaking engagements in the future. “ngayon kabado na yan si raissa sa mga speaking engagement nya na b ka may kokontra na naman sa kanya ..wala ng bibili ng libro mo….tigil mo na yan maawa ka naman sa sarili mo .nakakahiya yang pinag gagawa mo”
Ethan Michael is amazed that someone stood for the majority of the FIlipinoa in NYC. “Wow! May tumindig pala para sating nakakaraming Filipino kay Robles sa NYC! Salamat kabayang at hindi pa kita kilala! To all filipinos all over the world! Stand up! Speak the truth about our country!about our president! Hwag hayaang sirain ng mga dilawan ang pinagpaguran ng lahat ng nasa gobyerno ngayon na nagsisikap na maging maayos ang lahat satin! Mabuhay tayong lahat! Para sa pagbabago!”
