Rafael Alunan’s advice to Duterte amidst spat with biased media: Relax, Mr President, we’re standing by you

In the midst of the sensationalized spat between Duterte & the biased media, a former government official dispenses a sound advice to President Duterte.

In a Facebook post, former DILG Secretary Rafael Alunan III gave a sound advice to President Duterte that any Duterte supporters would appreciate.

Check out the post below.

“Pilipino, we are going through the eye of the needle. Dumadaan tayo ngayon sa butas ng karayom.
Napakahirap. It is not easy trying to change the way we are to what we should become demonstrated by responsible governance and citizenship to build a nation for all Filipinos, present and future.

Before DU30 came along, the desire was to have a strong President that would sweep away the dirt we’ve accumulated but somehow refused to clean up. Now that he’s here, warts and all but with the best of intentions, he’s being obstructed.

Ang labo ano? That’s why linalampaso tayo ng mga dayuhan at kanilang mga galamay dito sa ating lipunan. Ito yung tinatawag natin na “status quo” o “vested interests” o “elite” that only serve their own exclusive interests. Pwera tayo dyan.

Kaya naman sila napahiya at natalo big-time noong Mayo. Hindi nila matanggap-tanggap ang kanilang nakakahiyang pagkakatalo, kaya’t bumabanat sila ngayon para matanggal si PRRD. Ang tawag dyan sa Inggles ay “regime change.”

Naiintindihan ko ang galit ni PRRD. Nagugulat ang mga iba sa kanyang pagmumura. Ngunit kung sila’y nasa pwesto nya at mararamdaman nila ang masamang balak na patalsikin sila sa pwesto sa pamamagitan ng syndicated narratives based on exagerrations and distortions, sa palagay ko magagalit rin sila ng katatkot-takot.

Ang advice ko kay PRRD ay ganito. No matter how much you put the mirror of truth in front of them, they will keep denying what they’re doing to you while continuing what they’re doing because they have a hidden agenda. And if you continue to show anger and curse them, the more they’ll use it against you in a spiral of black propaganda.

The people are sufficiently aware of who these syndicated local and foreign elements are. No need for you to keep getting riled up because your supporters are vigilant and all riled up. Stay cool and focused on the responsibilities of the Presidency; keep the dignity of the office intact; and work on national unity and progress despite the obstacles.

The best tack is to no longer show them the finger, curse them and push them back publicly. We will do that for you in other ways that will amount to the same thing. Relax, Mr President, we’re standing by you.
Pilipino, tama ba ang sinabi ko? Say nyo?”
