Sa pag-uumpisa ng buwan ng Mayo, naging laman ng balita ang pagpapahinto ng National Telecommunication Commission (NTC) sa ABS-CBN sa pag-e-ere nito dahil sa franchise expiration.
Kung karamihan sa ating mga karaniwang kababayan ay natuwa sa desisyon ng NTC, mayroon din naman mga personalidad sa showbiz at politika na umangal sa naging hakbang ng gobyerno.
Kamakailan lang ay nagsalita na rin si LTGen Antonio Parlade Jr ng National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC) patungkol sa isyu ng ABS-CBN at kung paano ito sinasakyan ng mga rebeldeng komunista.
“REDS freeride on ABS-CBN issue
For 52 years, the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) was able to master the art of deceit and blatant lying that kept us a divided country which is full of hostilities and hate for each other. This communist-inspired insurgency has taken its toll on the best of our youth who were targeted mostly for their talent in speaking and writing, not so much to inspire but to be used and exploited by Jose Maria Sison to fight his war of toppling our democracy, and supplanting it with his.
Propaganda is CPP’s masterpiece.
Luckily, some of these former communist writers and organizers have survived the communist purge of the 80’s to tell their story. Some were eventually enlightened to help the government understand how the communist mind and propaganda machinery works. What we are writing now is basically culled from their own experience in the underground, using some of their words as products of deep reflection and introspection after they have resurfaced. These former cadres are now guiding us so that we may finally end this insurgency, as the NTF ELCAC is mandated to accomplish.
Insurgency is 90 percent political warfare.
This fight is a political warfare and just like any insurgency, this is 90 percent PROPAGANDA and 10 percent TACTICS. This is where the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the government failed.
For the longest time, the AFP has prosecuted this war with 90 percent of its might (just as the US did in Vietnam). It did not have the wherewithal to address socio-eco issues thrown at them. How can an AFP officer raised apolitically, understand that insurgency is NOT a result of poverty? How will he argue that social injustice did NOT cause a young peasant to join the NPA, if not for the Sandatahan Yunit Propaganda (SYP) that agitated him? Indeed, how can a smart cadet win over an equally smart ‘tibak’, radicalized KM and ARMAS (hence underground CPP members) if he does not understand that these ‘scholars’ were targeted for recruitment by the CPP from amongst their collective allies in CPP organized and led CEGP, NUJP, LFS, ARTiSTA, Kabataan, etc. to form part of the CPP and NDF Propaganda Bureau?
Well, this is what happened to 80 percent of those who made that media petition arising from the ABS-CBN brouhaha. The list of petitioners is long but does the rest of them understand that they are being exploited and dragged again, as we predicted a few days ago, by these commies?
Red baiting an old trick for CPP Agit-Prop
The NTF ELCAC is not picking a fight on the innocent media. ABS-CBN workers and their media friends should know better. The CPP only wishes that the government will red tag all of them. But no, we want to isolate and secure them from Joma’s stooges. This is a showdown between Joma’s propagandists and the truth.” pahayag ni Parlade.
Kinonekta rin ng opisyal ng militar si Inday Varona sa mga rebeldeng komunista. Si Varona ay contributing writer/editor sa ABS-CBN.
“Truth versus their lies
So yes, we dare Inday Varona and the other long time cohorts of the CPP in the media to expose themselves some more. The same International League of Peoples’ Struggle network already did: Karapatan Alliance Philippines, National Union of Peoples’ Lawyers, National Union of Journalists of the Philippines, College Editors Guild of the Philippines, Anakbayan, Bayan, Bulatlat, Altermidya, Kodao, Tudla, Kilab, Northern Dispatch, UJP, all of which were creations of the CPP itself.
We don’t need to red tag them. Just go to their websites and read how they build this franchise issue into an OUSTDuterte move.
If you support a terrorist like Joma and the CPP, who had been killing our IPs, raping their fighters (men included), massacring their own kind, attacking our democratic system, why should people believe you with your fascist and tyrant narrative? We will have worse under the CPP’s proletarian dictatorship. It’s proletarian, so where do you think your professional journalistic and artistic talents will go under a communist franchise?
And what about the oligarchs? Have you forgotten Pol Pot and his Khmer rouge? Do you think you will be spared by the communists who look down on you as class enemies and exploiters? They talk nice today because they need your money and influence. But what’s next for you when they take over?
Yes, the ABS CBN issue is about CPP propaganda, so it falls under NTF ELCAC’s mandate. For so long as ABS owners, management and employees allow their issues to be exploited by the CPP NDF, yes you will continue to be persons of interest to us.” pagsisiwalat pa ni Parlade.
Nitong nagdaang araw ay naglabas ang Armed Forces of the Philippines Southern Luzon Command ng mga litrato kung saan makikita ang mga New People’s Army na sumusuporta sa ABS-CBN.
