Sometimes it’s hard to tell who is more full of shit, The Thug or the utterly shameless butt-sucking toadies who constantly disgrace themselves with their craven, obsequious nonsense.
This time, The Thug is popping off with silly conspiracy theories about the CIA and the media out to get him.
Oh wait, he’s played that hand before. He must be trying to deflect attention from his own misdeeds. Again.
He’s whining about conspiracies in which spooky foreigners seek to manipulate public opinion, and then in the very same breath he’s threatening again to go peddle his wrinkled old ass to China and Russia and anyone else who needs a vassal state in the region.
Oh wait, he’s played that hand before too. He must be, I don’t know, utterly full of shit.
Which brings us yet again to one of his most shameless and most despicable toadies, one Rigoberto Tiglao, a brown-nosed presstitute with all the principles and moral authority of a strung-out 20-peso shabu hag on R-10 at 2 a.m.
We should be outraged, he bellows, that PDI — his former employer — has featured a photograph depicting “Caucasians” holding up placards that implore “Stop the killings” and “Stop silencing dissent!”.
One of the uppity Caucasians was even an American official! he screeches, and then asks rhetorically if it is “now US official policy to destabilize this government through allegations of human rights violations.”
That’s right, Tiglao has never been troubled in the least by the thousands of murders committed by his patron’s regime or with its complicity, but he goes absolutely ape-shit whenever a foreigner politely asserts that the constitutional rights — and very lives — of Filipinos should be respected, especially in their own country.
And especially since some government “leaders” and people who seek to shape public opinion are so utterly callous and obsessed with power that they see any legitimate criticism as a diabolical threat.
But Tiglao is so pompous and dense that he directly contradicts himself by snarling that “What’s shocking is that these foreigners in the PDI photo don’t even represent their countries.”
So they don’t represent their countries, but those countries are somehow using them to destabilize the Philippines because those folks dared to show concern for Filipino lives and freedoms?
That’s fucking stupid, Bert.
And so is the whole notion of attempting to incite nationalist fervor by trying to play the “bad foreigner” card when foreigners object to wanton slaughter and repression of Filipinos.
There was never really much question as to who would “win” the Golden Toady Award for butt-snuggling farce disguised as nationalism or reasonable commentary. Tiglao was always a front-runner, far ahead of the garden-variety sipsips and stooges who are constantly angling for a smooch at the old Thug’s rancid posterior.
Tiglao is, indeed, the biggest and most shameless toady in Philippine media today.
What a fucking piece of shit.
Rappler gives Tiglao a well-deserved bitch-slap.
