Fate is funny – Manila Bulletin writer on PBBM taking podium at United Nations on 50th anniversary of Martial Law declaration

The irony or symbolism of PBBM, son of the most maligned Philippine president in history, taking the spotlight at the United Nations to talk about human rights, peace and security etc.. during the 50th anniversary of the declaration of Martial Law did not escape the keen eyes of Manila Bulletin writer Krizette Laureta Chu.

In a Facebook post, Ms. Chu cannot help but remarked that indeed fate has a wicked sense of humor.

Why? While PBBM and the Marcos name is relevant again and have all the spotlight and back in power, the so-called “freedom fighters” who have been in the spotlight after the Marcoses left are struggling for relevance.

Ms. Chu ended the brief FB post by asking the Universe for explanation of the changing tide of political fortunes.

Here are some the comments from netizens in reaction to Ms. Chu’s FB post regarding PBBM’s speech at the United Nation coinciding on the day of the 50th anniversary of Martial Law declaration.

karma is the meaning of all these… the universe ensuring that everything is in the right order, the right audience, in the right place at the right time, one person commented.

To which another netizen chimed in: karma is real..can never bring a good man/ heart down! MARCOS PARIN..

that’s divine justice ❤, replied another netizen.

Sa kanila ang huling halakhak ganito maglaro ang tadhana ms KLC added another.

You may now read Krizette Chu’s original FB post.

How ironic—and maybe symbolic—that on the 50th anniversary of the declaration of Martial Law by the most demonized Philippine President, his son, his Junior, takes the podium at the United Nations, the emblem of “the best of humanity”, whose 4 charters are Human Rights, Peace & Security, The Rule of Law, and Development as President of the Philippines.

Fate is funny.

Meanwhile the “freedom fighters” we’ve known all our lives are struggling for relevance.

Ano meaning nito, Universe?
