A certain Dr. Ethel Pineda slammed OchoDiretso losing senatorial bet Atty. Chel Diokno on Facebook because she found her arrogant for not bothering to check the veracity of his post on Twitter.
“The guy is so arrogant he did not even bother to check the veracity of his post,” Pineda wrote.
According to Pineda, Diokno is so confident not to edit his erroneous post knowing the fact-checkers are his friends.
“Wala nag fact check? Kasi ka-kosa niya yung fock checkers.”
That’s how sure they are of themselves but in reality, they are intellectual lightweights?
“Ganyan sila. So sure of themselves. Wala naman binatbat.”
You may check the screenshot of Chel Diokno’s tweet to understand where was Pineda’s rant came from.
Actually, Dr. Pineda was commenting on the original thread of a certain Bubuy Bulangue who corrected Diokno’s erroneous tweet on Rizal founding the Katipunan.
Here’s what Bulangue has to say on Dioknos’ tweet.
“”The founders of the Katipunan were Deodato Arrellano, Teodoro Plata, Valentin Diaz, Ladislao Diwa, Andres Bonifacio, and Jose Dizon. Katipunan founders Bonifacio, Diwa, and Plata were all members of La Liga and were influenced by the nationalistic ideals of the Propaganda Movement in Spain.”Di ba kampi niyo si Chel? Di ba, sangayon kayo sa kanya? Di ba abogado siya? Di ba naniniwala kayo sa kanya?So ibig sabihin, para sa inyo, tama mga sinasabi niya. Ipagtatanggol niyo pa diba?Kaka post mo pa naman ng pagbati sa birthday ni Jose. Tapos, kakampi mo, nagkakalat. Hahaha.What a joke.”
Jose Rizal was 23 when he spoke truth to a superpower, and 35 when he was executed for founding an illegal association (the Katipunan) and inciting to rebellion. Maiksi ang buhay niya, pero makahulugan. His spirit lives on in every freedom-loving Filipino. Maligayang kaarawan!— Chel Diokno (@ChelDiokno) June 19, 2021
Diokno’s has elicited comments from netizens poking fun at Diokno.
“Baka po iba teacher at History books niya. “
“what a joke, no?”
“Yan napalala ng absent ng absent sa history class toothbrush ka muna brod”
“Spoke truth? For Chel, going up against a “superpower” is always about “speaking the truth.” Di ba pwedeng DI KA LANG TALAGA PABOR sa nakaupo sa gobyerno, at puro ka lang daldal? San ba nag-aral to at INAANGKIN PALAGI na SYA LANG ANG TOTOO?! Tapos ngayon nagpopost ng “lies!””
