Ex-DLSU prof explains why Filipino elites deeply saddened over PNoy’s death but not ordinary Filipinos

Former DLSU History prof Van Ybiernas offered a straightforward explanation where the support and sympathy to the Aquino family are coming from.

Ybiernas hit the elites whom he said are very sad of PNoy’s passing for the simple reason that they’ve missed the time when they reigned like kings.

“Malungkot ang mga elitista sa pagkamatay ni Noynoy Aquino kasi namimiss nila ang panahon na silang mga elitista ang namamayagpag.”

Understandably so because the elites made more money in PNoy’s time. The stock market and Big business were well taken care of because majority of them are Aquino supporters.

“Maganda ang buhay ng mga elitista noon kasi alagang alaga ang stock market at big business dahil puro mga suporters ng mga Aquino ang mga iyan.”

The media and historians also benefited from the PNoy admin because the main concern of the Aquinos is the family legacy and their expertise were very much in demand.

“Alagang alaga din ang media at historians kasi ang pangunahing concern ng mga Aquino ay ang legacy ng kanilang pamilya na uulit ulitin sa media (telebisyon at dyaryo lalo na) at history books.”

The academe also enjoyed support from the Aquinos not because the family supports education but due to the opportunities they gave to the professors and researchers to provide almost one-sided data, yes you’ve guessed it, for the Aquino legacy.

“Alaga din ang akademya hindi dahil sa suporta ng mga Aquino sa edukasyon kundi dahil sa mga raket para sa mga propesor at researchers na magpo-provide ng halos one-sided data para sa legacy nga ng mga Aquino.”

“Nadagdagan pa yan ng mga artistang naapektuhan ng nangyari sa ABS-CBN,” Ybiernas added.

Ybiernas pointed out where the sympathy of support came from.

“Kaya kitang kita mo kung saan nanggagaling ang suporta at pakikiramay sa pagkamatay ni Noynoy.”

“Hindi yan nakakagulat,” Ybiernas stated.

Ybiernas went on to reason why it was difficult for the Aquinos to get the sympathy from ordinary Filipinos.

“Pero hirap kang maghanap ng papuri at pakikiramay galing sa mga ordinaryong Pilipino. Kasi nga, ano ba ang nagawa ni Noynoy at ng mga Aquino para sa atin?”

If it all, Ybiernas warned it is not going to sound pleasant to the Aquinos ears because of the sufferings and hardships their administrations brought upon to ordinary Filipinos.

“Bago nyo sabihing wala, ako na ang magsasabing meron. Yun nga lang puro pasakit at sama ng loob. Kaya nga kitang kita din na sa halip na kalungkutan ang maramdaman ng taumbayan sa kanyang pagyao, parang nagsaya pa ang mga ito.”

Ybiernas has a ready defense knowing that the opposite camp will not take this sitting down but he insisted that the ordinary people have a mind of their own and not dictated by outside forces.

“Sasabihin na naman nila na manufactured ito ng troll farms pero yung mga tao mismo sa sarili nilang isip at damdamin ang nakaisip at nakadama nito.”

“Malinaw na malinaw yan,” Ybiernas said.
