PALAKA's Monster

It seems that the ruling party is no different from its idol, Gloria. Its embroiled in a shocking scandal called the Maguindanao Massacre. Reports say that as early as mid this year, the party has been tackilng the issue of the Ampatuans and Mangudadatus. Just like Gloria, the party leadership had offered the Mangudadatus different government position just so they will not field a gubernatorial candidate whot will challenge the Ampatuans. It would not have come to this despicable act of savagery if only GMA and PALAKA are not coddling Neanderthals and did not practice transactional politics.

Gibo Teodoro is now on a PR blitz to salvage whatever is left of PALAKA and try and improve his image as well. He too knew of the internal squabble and yet was too slow to react or even prevent this crime from happening. This is just an example of how local politics interacts with national politics. Warlords are nurtured and fed for the political ambitions of a greedy few. Gloria sure has created a monster of a clan. Despite Gibo's efforts, it's too late. The damage has been done. He is party to a brand of politics which he says he despises.

Blood is on GMA's hands because she had showered these warlords with arms to terrorize their constituents into submissin. Maguindanao is but an example of the kind of politics this evil administration has been nurturing for the past 8 years. No matter what her equally incompetent spin doctors will say, this cultural of political terrorism will be very hard to distance this administration itself from.

PALAKA is a party of criminals, plain and simple. There is no other way to describe this monstrosity of a political party. Expelling the Ampatuans likens them to Pontius Pilate. To Gibo, you should have been more decisive back when this squabble started. You should have told Gloria that there is no such thing as concessions on the name of public service. The massacre awakened the people to the reality of dirty politics and the culture of impunity this country is in.

I hope the Ampatuans fry. They know they are guilty. I'd like to see them a twenty-one gun salute with all the guns pointed at them. We live in a civilized world and there is no room for Neanderthals to roam freely among us,
