In the midst of the noise in social media like the Duterte oust plan and PRRD’s drop in SWS rating, a retired broadcaster cautioned the opposition camp not to act irrationally.
Retired TV and radio broadcaster Jay Sonza took to Facebook to warn the opposition to be careful what they wish for.
In the Facebook post, Sonza admonished the opposition camp for conduct unbecoming of true leaders for the Filipinos by attacking Duterte since day 1, conducting mass actions and release money for rally organizers and spreading lies against Duterte to destroy him before the eyes of the Filipinos and the world.
On one hand, Sonza also reprimanded Duterte’s men for consistently being outflanked by their counterparts.
Sonza credited the people who voted for Duterte, especially the netizens and a handful of bloggers and a few indie opinion writers and broadcasters for keeping the attacks of the opposition camp in check.

BE CAREFUL WITH WHAT YOU WISH FOR
I am writing this piece for both the administration and the opposition. For the pro (Dutertards) and anti (Yellowtards) let us pause for a while and ponder upon the possible conquences of what we do. And please, be careful with what you wish for.
To the opposition – From the day Duterte won the election in 2016 up today, hindi na ninyo tinigilan iyong mama. Hindi ninyo matanggap ang inyong pagkatalo. You have manifested conduct unbecoming of true leaders for the Filipinos
You have thrown even the kitchen sink. Every conceivable tricks have been employed to make sure Mr. Duterte is destroyed before the eyes of his fellowmen and the world. You have been spending considerable amount of monies to bring him down.
You have conducted mass actions and release money for rally organizers who pocketed the funds. You put up dozens of social media sites to get support from the netizens as against three (3) pro-admin sites to no avail.
Kung paniniwalaan ang mga balita at sabi-sabi, iyong ilan sa inyo ay nakikipagtulungan pa sa mga dayuhang bansa upang pabagsakin si Digong. Ang iba naman ay nanuhol pa upang gumawa ng karumadumal na pamamaslang upang ikabit sa kampanya ng gobyerno laban sa droga.
Kung bastusin ninyo ang president ay ganoon ganoon na lamang. Wala kayong pakundangan. Tila naghahamon pa kayo sa pangulo na magpatupad pa ng mga mararahas na hakbang na maaring mauwi sa madugong pangyayari.
To the pro admin people – you are slowly but surely falling into the trap laid down by the opposition who are out to unseat the duly elected president. Mr. Duterte himself is going berserk and almost always behaving like a pitbull, an attack dog. Hindi ko mapigilang isipin kung minsan na nag-aasal hayup ang presidente ng bansa.
Madalas na siyang mapikon. Iyong dating pamumutawi ng bulaklak ng bibig na pangungusap ay nagiging tunog sanggano na. While I appreciate his sarcasm, he has become irresponsibly irk most of the time in his pronouncements.
It is bad enough that he talks this way, it is doubly bad because people around him who are supposed to speak on his behalf are sleeping on their job. Truth to tell, the opposition is almost always 2 to 3 steps ahead in messaging and vilification campaign.
They have allowed the opposition to take hold of the momentum by way of the mainstream media. Hindi ko masisi ang mga ito na palaging laman ng balita ang kalaban ng administrasyon, dahil sa kupad ng mga bata ni Digong sa communication.
The only saving grace of Mr. Duterte are the people themselves, especially the netizens. Their undying support for the former mayor is absolute. He is also lucky to have the backing of 3 well followed bloggers and a few indie opinion writers and broadcasters
I said in the beginning “be careful with what you wish for,” because at the rate things are developing – iyong walang habas na paninira sa pangulo, iyong sinasabing pakikipagkuntsaba sa CIA, iyong trending na pagdausdos sa survey at lalo na iyong hayagang paghahamon sa pagkalalaki ng presidente, nakupo delikado iyan.
Sa kabilang dako naman, iyong tikas na tindig ni Mr. Duterte na hindi niya hahayaang mahulog sa kumunoy ang mamamayan at ang susunod na henerasyon, kung hindi nyo siya aruk, mag-isipisip kayo. Iyong nababasa at naririnig kong mga pahayag ng ordinaryong tao na ipaglalaban nila hindi lamang ng pitpitan ng bayag, kundi patayan ang pangulo, nakupo hindi magandang pangitain iyan.
Isa lang ang alam ko, Si Rodrigo Roa Duterte ay ibang-iba kay Ferdinand Marcos at Joseph Estrada, Digong is literally MADLY in love with his country and people.
Tandaan nating lahat, nasa huli ang pagsisi..
