Supporters of Philippine President Benigno Simeon Aquino insist that he is the “greatest” President the country has ever had.
Now that his term is about to end, they worry about who can continue his so-called “reforms” after he leaves office.
Never mind when there was no pending case against her at that time that would have justified the hold departure order and her subsequent detention.
Nowadays, some people, mostly from the Black and White Movement who are now allied with the incumbent, have become confused and have turned a blind eye to the corruption and gross incompetence that pervade BS Aquino’s government.
Of course the President’s supporters – those who are beholden to the Aquino name – will deny any wrongdoing by the President and defend his actions by saying that “the end justifies the means”.
That was when disrespect for the country’s institutions and failure to uphold the rule of law became acceptable in Philippine society.Prior to BS Aquino’s term, most Filipinos were united against corruption.That’s what they say every time BS Aquino persecutes a sick and frail former President Gloria Arroyo by talking about her alleged “crimes” in front of the media.Yes, the right to presumption of innocence is now a lost concept for many Filipinos because of BS Aquino.Prior to his term, a lot of people rallied outside on the streets or supported those who did so.
The Black and White movement – a movement organized by the upper class members of society – rallied alongside militant groups like Bayan Muna and Gabriela – groups organized by the middle class fighting for the lower class.
