The Marcos burial

Ronald Roy — Aug. 19, 2016

Truth can be drowned out by noise. This happens in trials by publicity, for instance. But it becomes most deplorable if truth is silenced by the din of a severely outnumbered minority — id est, the yellow minority. Let me share with you the results of an unverified Metro Manila survey of 900 respondents, as follows: for the late Pres. Ferdinand E. Marcos’ burial at the Libingan ng Mga Bayani (LMB), 69%; against, 25%; undecided, 6%.

The Yellows,losers in the last presidential election, think that the rule of the majority is no match to their combined bluster in hubris, vitriol, conceit and hypocrisy (sila lang ang magaling at maka-Diyos; daang matuwid, remember?). Well, we’ll see about that.

Cult-like Yellows
The tact of the cult-like Yellows all these decades has been clear and simple. The Marcoses must forever be denigrated, if not obliterated from memoryu, for this is the only way Corazon C. Aquino can forever be revered as a saintly queen of peace, Ninoy extolled as a slain martyr, and their son Noynoy proclaimed as the greatest Filipino president ever.

It’s relieving to note though that the effects of the brainwashing of students into believing this devilish scheme have been dissipating.

As for a so-called document showing that the dictator’s heirs agreed not to inter him at the LMB, did they freely waive their legal right to choose the burial site of the late president? After all, already in power then was Marcos’ estranged cousin and nemesis, newly elected Pres. Fidel V. Ramos, who had won with the lavish support of his predecessor, Cory Aquino. Incidentally, Cory became president on the spurious claim that she had beaten Marcos in a snap election. Namfrel and other records confirm this ridiculous claim.

A balanced view
Come visit my website for a balanced view of martial law. Marcos and Ninoy were friends of mine; I knew their strengths and weaknesses. Marcos fought to repel the Communist and secessionist rebels who were being aided by Ninoy, but all the casualties are now proclaimed by the Yellows as human rights victims of martial law.

What about those countless captured soldiers who were decapitated, tortured, and forced to eat their own roasted penises before being disemboweled and dismembered? Weren’t they human rights victims as well?

Marcos, ruthless?

If Marcos, whose only cuss word was “lintik”, was ruthless, how does one explain the fact that Eddie Figueras, a ranking member of the shadowy Serging Osmeña-Eugenio Lopez cabal, was caught redhanded in the act of attempting to assassinate Marcos in the Palace grounds, but was released after a year’s incarceration, humbled and honoring Marcos, in his words, as a “truly great president”?

Commie rebel head Jose Maria Sison was himself released from prison unscathed, as were a host of student militants like Gary Olivar and Gerry Barrican, who were not tortured but were converted by Marcos’ books about love of country and kabayanihan. Marcos, ruthless? Think again.

Ninoy, patriotic?
On the other hand, Ninoy once offered to me two truckloads of fully armed goons from Cavite for my use to assassinate Danding Cojuangco so that I could “replace him as the uncontested leader of Tarlac” — an offer which I of course rejected.

Ninoy also had my brother’s haciendero father-in-law ambushed in a Tarlac highway after the latter had refused to join the former’s political camp. Luckily, he was unhurt, although his driver was not as fortunate. Ninoy, patriotic? Think again.

Anyway, if and when the Supreme Court takes cognizance of the issue of whether the remains of the late president can be interred in the LMB, we can then hope that the said court, acting as a tribunal both of law and equity, shall utilize its magistrates’ collective wisdom in rendering a decision that will finally put to closure that damnable issue that has left the nation in tatters for the past four decades.

Only then can we move on united, strong and proud as one people. Hopefully.
