Misguided Idiots (or Anatomy of a Pinoy Troglodyte)


I feel sorry for some of the people who populate the comments section of the GMA News TV Website, particularly the anti-Arroyos. For all the words these troglodytes sacrificed to the altar of commentary to make a sentence, many comments are still incoherent. Many still seem to resort to name-calling, perhaps thinking that that approach is an accepted application of civilized debate. In an article written by Mark MerueƱas of GMA News on their website, a Mr. Ivan Henares was quoted as saying:

"I don't want to hear GMA [Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo] anymore. Start focusing on his term. He should already stop lambasting the previous administration," Henares said in a forum at the Miriam College in Quezon City.

"Does he have problems with the past administration? Let the courts deal with that. He should be rallying the Philippines towards a better country," he said.

And surely as the sun rises in the east, the anti-Arroyo netizens gave us their two cents (perhaps less) worth:

How can you let the courts deal with the Arroyos? E si Chief Justice appointee ni GMA. And the wheels of justice in this country turn awfully too slow if they turn at all. Ano kalimutan na? Dali magcriticize ng ginawa o di nagawa ni P-Noy pero to say thatone does not like to hear about GMA anymore is again forgetting without justice being served. Kaya nauulit ang mali, di naitatama kasi puro move on ang alam.

Marilou seems to have forgotten that only the courts can convict Gloria. If they don't file a case against her in court, all the witnesses and evidences being paraded in the Senate will amount to nil. I wonder how Marliou plans to get her much-anticipated justice without the courts? Here's another priceless comment:

HOY IVAN HENARES, WALA KANG KARAPATAN na SABIHAN ang PANGULO ng PILIPINAS kung ano ang DAPAT gawin? MAGMASID ka na lang at PANSININ kung ano na ang TAKBO at IPINAGBAGO ng PILIPINAS sa loob ng ISANG TAON! PAREHAS na NGAYON at may LAYA na ang mga TAONG NATAKOT o TINAKOT noon para ISIGAW at ILAHAD ang kanilang NALALAMAN HINGGIL sa NANGYARING CORRUPTIONS sa IBA't IBANG SANGAY ng GOBYERNO!!

The person who made this comment seems to be delusional. May LAYA na daw tayo. Teka. Kelan ba nawala ang kalayaan? Even during the administration of PGMA, may laya naman eh. In fact, i can recall that day after day after day, the opposition kept lambasting the former president in the media. Even the anti-Arroyo columnists kept firing their daily anti-Arroyo potshots in their columns. This wasn't like the time of Marcos where journalists were imprisoned for writing anti-government articles.

Why should this administaration do away with the Arroyos, unless these people goes to jail, no one will respect our Law. Nothing will happen to PHL. How can we improve our image and invite tourist if the money intended for the development of tourism promotion are also put into the pocket of CORRUPT OFFICIALS.

How can "these people" go to jail if the only venue evidences and witnesses are presented are in the Senate and not in the courts? Remember folks, for those who don't know the difference, the Senate hearings are done in AID OF LEGISLATION. The Senate cannot convict the Arroyos. Only the courts, which have JUDICIAL POWER can do that. Fortunately, there are some who know the difference, to wit:

Arroyo ka ng Arroyo hindi muna ginagampanan ang trabaho mo paunlarin ang bansa. Maraming walang trabaho, mataas ang bilihin yan ang problema hindi si Arroyo. Nagsasayang ka lang ng oras, may korte para kay Arroyo. Ikaw magtrabaho ka paunlarin ang bansa. Pinepeste mo kami

You're right there. Ang mga taong nagcocomment dito na dapat panagutin ang may kasalanan ay sarili lang iniisip at ayaw umasenso. Daig pa ang nga judge na nakaupo sa pwesto. Bakit hindi na lang hintayin ang hearing. May mas mahahalaga pang bagay na dapat gawin. Gugulong at gugulong ang hustisya at habang nakafocus ang pamahalaan sa mga kaso laban kay GMA mauubos din ng mauubos ang oras nila.
----
In the end, these anti-Arroyo critics have to understand that these Senate hearings are pointless, and that the only way they can achieve justice is to give Gloria Arroyo her day in Court to answer all the allegations being hurled against her. Without that, there will only be accusations and allegations and that is all.
