The appointment of Prof. Clarita Carlos as National Security Adviser of the incoming Marcos admin and her subsequent announcement that redtagging will be a thing of the past under the Marcos administration has been a welcome news for Leftist groups and their sympathizers.
While it is true that the critics of the NTF-ELCAC were waiting with bated breath how former NTF-ELCAC Spokesman Lt. Gen. Parlade will react, perhaps anticipating he will go gaga over Prof. Carlos statement about ending redtagging, to the chagrin of the General’s critics, he has nothing but good words for Prof. Carlos.
In fact, he agreed with Prof. Carlos that redtagging should be put to rest because the 31M has already awaken.
But before that, the retired General talked about reviewing his books while taking master studies in Ateneo and in Australia.
Parlade remarked that after reading, he realized not much has changed especially those concepts on economic development by a certain Feliciano Fajardo. The takeaway from the Fajardo’s books is that if the Philippines don’t reform, our democracy will die. He urged Filipinos to understand how the communists DUPED Filipinos into thinking redtaggging is the issue which is not.
Parlade said our problem as a people is that we are ignorant of their revolutionary dual tactics.
Parlade went on to elaborate what he meant by this. For example, the communist talks of peace and yet bait us in violence. They claimed to be activists yet they are engaged in the armed struggle.
The retired Lt. General ended the FB post by telling those people who rejoiced at the appointment of Prof. Carlos and her subsequent statement to just relax because redtagging, according to Parlade will be put to rest because the 31M has already awaken. He warned that country’s greatest problem or challenge is not within but outside the country.
You may now read Lt. Gen. Antonio Parlade’s original FB post below.
Sobrang galing at talino ng nadesignate ni PBBM na NSA na si Prof Clarita Carlos. Napa review tuloy ako ng ilang books ko sa masteral studies sa Ateneo, US (2006), and Australia (2013).
I realized not much has changed especially those concepts on economic development by Feliciano Fajardo. If we dont reform, our democracy will die. So, let’s understand how these communists DUPED us into believing that redtagging is the issue. It is not.
It is our ignorance of their revolutionary DUAL tactics.
They talk of peace yet bait us in violence. They claim to be activists yet they are so engaged in the armed struggle. They talk human rights but they are the most vicious, tortuous, and most murderous armed group. They speak of corruption in government but they are the most exploitive extortionists we have known. They profess to be pro-poor but look at how their insurgency forfeited our funds for baranggay development and livelihood in favor of the wealthy. They speak of morals and humanity yet corrupt the minds of our youth to nurture hate against govt.
Dun sa mga kumunistang natuwa sa appointment at statements ni incoming NSA, chill muna kayo dyan. Tutuldukan na natin ang isyung redtagging, sapagkat 31M na katao ang mulat na mulat na sa katotohanan. Hindi na tayo babalik sa madilim na karanasan natin sa mga teroristang ito. Mas matindi ang hinaharap natin sa rehiyon sa labas ng ating bansa.
