Open Letter to Marcos oppositionists: “The problem we have is we have double standard mentality”
An active netizen, Cedric Vanguard, expressed his frustration regarding people who were experiencing so-called double standard mentality over Marcoses.
Read his full post below:
I don’t get it.
If we cannot allow Marcos to be buried in the Libingan ng mga bayani, then why we allow Emilio Aguinaldo to be a hero if in some historians he did not even qualify to be one?
If we cannot forgive Ferdinand Marcos, then we should not also forgive killers, drug abusers, corrupts, and all enemies of the state. Killing them should not be a problem at all.
If we feel for the families of the victims of Martial law, then so should we for the families of the recent victims of rape and murder. If that is the case, death penalty is no problem at all.
If we really cannot move with FM’s mistakes, the why did we allow Erap to serve as the mayor of Manila despite his graft case before when he was the president.
If we don’t forgive the MAN who we think did not care about human rights, then we should be unforgiving too to the MEN who stripped their victims’ right to live. Hanging them in public is no problem at all.
If we show mercy to the killers as to give them second chances just as we believe they still have the goodness in them, then so must we see the goodness of the MAN, whom history cannot even deny, the real enemies are today.
If we teach our people how to forgive,
Then tell them that forgiveness is not for few nor for some only, for God never teaches us to forgive only to ones we love, but also our enemies. If PJP forgave the man who shot him, why can’t we do the same?
