Matapos patigilin ng National Telecommunication Commission (NTC) ang ABS-CBN sa pagsasahimpapawid, ilang personalidad sa mundo ng politika, lalo na sa panig ng oposisyon ang nagsalita laban sa hakbang ng pamahalaan.
Pati ang mga kilalang artista sa Kapamilya network ay bumoladas din sa naging desisyon ng NTC laban sa kanilang istasyon. Ilan sa mga bumoladas ay sina Coco Martin, Kim Chiu, Daniel Padilla at Kathryn Bernardo.
Ngayon, pati ang teroristang grupong New People’s Army ay nakikisawsawna rin sa isyu. Sa ilang litratong inilathala sa social media account ng Southern Luzon Command, AFP, makikita ang mga rebeldeng komunista na may karatula na nagpapakita ng suporta sa Kapamilya network. Ilan sa mga katagang mababasa sa banner na hawak ng mga NPA ay ang katgang “Ibagsak ang Rehimeng US-DUterte” at “The revolution must be televised. Put ABS-CBN back on air”.
Narito po ang pahayag ng opisyal ng pwersa ng pamahalaan na tumututok sa paglaban sa mga komunista.
“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?
…The NTF ELCAC is not picking a fight on the innocent media. ABS-CBN workers and their media friends should know better…
“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,” sabi ni LTGen Antonio Parlade Jr ng National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF ELCAC).
