Celdran to Duterte supporters: “I only offer a laurel of peace and hope that we can start from scratch.”

Carlos Celdran, you know who is if you are a Duterte or a Mar supporter because this guy was in the middle of an intense WORD WAR between two opposing camps, has written an open letter. In it, he asking for an apology from the Duterte supporters.

Without reservations, I agree with Carlos Celdran that we should stick to positive campaigning and stop using hurtful words because after all, when the election is over, we need to move forward and unite as one people to work for a better Philippines.

Carlos Celdran Open letter

Carlos Celdran

December 15, 2015

Dear Duterte People of the Internet:

I have decided to apologize, full stop. This endless bickering between us has gone on long enough and is helping neither your candidate nor mine as we can see by the telenovela worthy exchange that happened yesterday.

As a matter of fact, we’ve all just wasted a precious week making memes and losing focus.

So please accept my apologies. I am sorry for losing my temper and offending your sensibilities through the use of name calling. I also do realize that word I used, not only hurts Duterte campaigners, but a marginalized sector of society as well.

Hence. I shall not repeat the word here at all.

I only offer a laurel of peace and hope that we can start from scratch. Perhaps from here on, we can discuss real issues in a positive manner. Truth be told, I am an open guy. I really would like to hear more about why you will vote for him aside from his hard hitting image. it would be great if you tell me more about his plan for inclusive mobility (public transportation), the HIV epidemic, and our agreement with the ASEAN integrated economy.

Leave your answers below. Feel free to include a graphic or a meme, but no slurs please. Also, take it easy on the CAPS LOCK.

Actually, allow me to start this entire campaign all over again. PERIOD.

From here on, I shall post the election materials and articles of ALL candidates that I deem are relevant or of note. All of them. Of course, I will have a slant towards the Liberal Party but you already know that.

And I shall begin once again with an article on your choice of President. Here’s the Rappler article on Duterte from “The Leader I Want Series”
Looking forward to your positive response.

All the best.

What can you say about Carlos Celdrans’ open letter?
