Journalist slams de Lima, Lacierda; criticizing Duterte’s tirade against critics, hypocrisy of highest order

A viral post lambasting two former Cabinet officials of the Aquino government is making the rounds online.

On a Facebook post, Radyo Inquirer reporter Ira Panganiban defended Duterte from critics who have been subjected to concerted attack on national TV by de Lima’s allies, feminist groups, and Duterte haters.

In the post, Mr. Panganiban took the pains to castigate former Malacanang spokesman Edwin Lacierda who earlier ran to the rescue of the beleaguered de Lima and gave Duterte a lecture on GMRC (good manners and right conduct).

Likewise, Mr. Panganiban gave Edwin Lacierda a short lecture on Pnoy’s history of outburst in public: maligning and shaming his political opponents to direct the attention of the public away from his own shortcomings as president.

Please read the full text of his tirade against Lacierda et al..

>Hypocrisy is sometimes defined as condemning the same action one did in the past when it is used against oneself at the present.

Sinabi ko na dati na hindi ako sang-ayon sa ginawa ni Pangulong Duterte kay Leila de Lima.

Pero ang pag-hirit ng mga tulad ni Edwin Lacierda na maling gawin ni Duterte ang manghiya sa hindi makapalag na kalaban tulad ni De Lima ay hypocrisy sa pinakamataas na antas.

Noong panahon ni dating Pangulong Aquino, boss ni Lacierda, mismong Chief Justice ng Korte Suprema ang personal na inatake at siniraan ni Noynoy Aquino.

Idinawit ang asawa at pamilya ni Renato Corona sa kaso at pinapangalanan habang hinihiya sa mga pahayag sa tv, Radyo at newspaper.

Si dating Gloria Arroyo, na sinasabing tunay na may sabit sa kaso ay anim na taong ginawang sangkalan ng bintang ng lahat nang pagkukulang ni Aquino.

Isinama din sa atake ni Aquino ang asawa at mga anak ni Arroyo, ganundin mga kapatid at pamilya ng dating pangulo.
Sa pahayag ni De Lima sa kanyang press conference ay sinabi niya na ang ginawa ni Duterteng pagbintang at pagatake sa kanya ay unang beses lamang ginawa ng isang pangulo sa kalaban nila.

Not true.

Ginawa ito ni Cory kay Marcos, ni FVR kay General Nazareno, ni Erap sa mga judges, ni Gloria kay Erap at ni Aquino kay Gloria, Corona, Marcos, Binay at marami pang iba.

Mismong si De Lima ay guilty nito ng sabihin niya na tama ang ginagawang panghihiya ni Aquino noon kay Gloria at Corona.

Lalong walang karapatan si De Lima na magsalita tungkol sa fairness at rule of law dahil siya mismo noong Justice Secretary siya ay nilabag ang TRO ng Supreme Court at hindi payagang bumiyahe si Arroyo para magpagamot sa unang bansa.

Inuulit ko, hindi tama na manirang puri si Duterte lalo na sa babae.

Yun ay kung masasabi ni De Lima na she treated Duterte fairly in the past. Pero alam naman natin na si De Lima ang naging attack dog kay Duterte noong araw pa.

So mali si Duterte na manghiya ng babae. Pero walang karapatan si De Lima na humiyaw ng fair treatment dahil naging bastos din siya.

What are your thoughts on this issue?
