This is the initial reaction of an indignant retired AFP Colonel Abe Purugganan to Senator Pacquiao’s statement urging Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte to forget about running for President in 2022.
“Mr. Pacquaio, ano ba pinaguusapan dito, kapakanan ng bansa o kapakanan ng kandidato?” Purugganan further asked Senator Pacquiao to follow through.
Like a broken record, Purugganan wants Senator Pacquiao to expound the “chance” he was talking about, whether the chance to destroy the country or the welfare of Filipinos?
“Anong chance ba yang pinagsasabi mo? Chance para sirain ang bansa at kapakanan ng mamamayang Pilipino?”
Purugganan was apparently perplexed at Senator Pacquiao’s logic of giving chance to the inexperienced, corrupt blah, blah? Or he was hoping that the DDS will choose him in case Sara Duterte heeds his call to give others the chance?
“Bakit mo bibigyan ng chance yong walang kakayahan, walang alam, traydor, magnanakaw, korap, maka terorista, at mapanira? O umaasa ka na iboboto ka na presidente ng mga DDS sakaling hindi tumakbo si Sara?”
Purugganan can’t help but ask whether Senator Pacquiao is now the errand boy of the Dilaws and their allies?
“Bakit mo ba hinahadlangan ang pagtakbo ni Sara? Utusan ka na rin ba ng dilaw, liberal, komunista, at oligarkiya?”
Purugganan quipped that if Pacquiao wants to run, he should present his platform of governance to the voters, not resort to black propaganda against the candidacy of fellow aspirant.
“Kung gusto mong tumakbong pagkapangulo, programa ang ipresentar mo sa mga botante hindi yong sisiraan mo ang kandidatura ng isang tao.”
Commenting on the thread, one netizen wrote: “I like his boxing not his politics. Did not vote for him, never will. He can help Filipinos by running his own NGO!”
“pagbigyan na lang kung anong gustong sabihin baka naapektuhan ang utak sa dami ng suntok na natanggap nya sa boxing career nya! pero hwag iboto! delikado ang mga pilipino pag nanalo!” a second netizen said in jest.
