Senator Risa Hontiveros alledgely Poisons The Minds of Young Filipinos About Marcos Martial Law
By Alon Calinao Dy: In the middle of controversies, whether late President Ferdinand Marcos, Sr., will be buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani or not, Senator Hontiveros spread the copies of Marcos Martial Law: Never Again book that may send wrong messages to young Filipinos in the Philippines.
Critics also said that Senator Hontiveros should act like a senator and stop the spread of lies about Marcos. They added that she should not bring her being activist to the senate and should help the current administration about their fight against illegal drugs, criminality and corruption if she truly loves Filipinos.
Hontiveros and De Lima are the lady senators and critics who questioned the Duterte administration about extra judicial killings across the country. However, De Lima was allegedly linked to illegal drug trade inside the New Bilibid Prison that enraged Filipino people.
Marcos loyalists now say that the distribution is illegal as the Department of Education does not authorize the lady senator to circulate these books to the young Filipinos, and also this taught us division among ourselves.
Contrary to what Sen. Hontiveros said that it helps bring awareness to the youth about the dark side of Martial Law, this book may serve as a black propaganda for their personal interests and power in the country. It is also evident that she had personal grudge against Marcoses and the former president.
Despite the fact that the Duterte administration is doing its best to promote unity, peace and order in the country, some critics use their influence to derail the good agenda of the government. Recently, lots of news came out to put a bad image of President Duterte in front of international media so that their own greed personal interests should prevail.
