OK. Now I’m getting convinced they have someone who copy writes for them who is either insane, or set on destroying them from within.
“This nation will be great again”? As an integral part of their message (never mind what on earth “authocracry” could be, except perhaps authors they dislike? Or another Marcos homage, as I -cheekily, I thought- suggested when I adapted the title of one of Marcos’s books), no less. Even the placement of the captions is odd, the careless reader would think “The enemy” refers to the Atienza wing Liberals in the photo; and that “We rise against the enemy of the state” refers to the guy right above the caption!
We all know who made that line famous. Right? “This nation can be great again,” he said, in 1965. And that the legions, you’d think, would have learned to be careful from whom, or where, they lift quotes from? But apparently…
Well, as Marcos so loved to say, “Aw, c’mon.”
Anyway, word is, the petition for a plebiscite will be filed within the next couple of weeks.
