Kung bumili ako ng Kutsilyo, Terorista na ba ako? Lea Salonga, Kontra sa Anti-Terror Bill!

Isa ngayong sa mga personalidad sa showbiz na naglabas ng pahayag laban sa anti-terrorism bill ay si Lea Salonga.

“My problem is how unspecific and loose these definitions are. Ibig sabihin, any of us could be thrown in jail for doing anything. I get that we need a bill to help curtail the growth of actual terrorist groups, but seriously? E kung pumunta ako ng True Value at bumili ng kutsilyo, terorista na ba ako? Sa ganda kong ito? Paano ka e, ang handsome mo?” boladas ni Salonga.

Hindi naman pinalagpas ng Facebook page na Luminous ang mga boladas ni Salonga.

“Nakaka worry that people really think that buying a kitchen knife from a hardware store would give rise to a suspicion of terrorism.

Inangyan. Who is putting these ideas into people’s heads?

Sec. 4 of the Anti Terrorism Bill is clear that there must be an intent. One cannot assume intent from merely buying a frikkin’ knife from a frigging hardware store. Malay ba nating magluluto ng sisig yung tao, lintian.

Furthermore that detention of 14 days needs to be reasonable meaning there is a belief that the detainee is involved in terrorism or about to commit it. And you do not get such a belief from seeing a person buy a gadem knife from a gadem hard-fecking-ware store.

This logical fallacy is called reduccio ad absurdum, or reducing the argument into absurdity. Also known as the “ginagawa tayong tanga” argument.

Saan ba may sisig? Nagutom tuloy ako.” banat ng Luminous Blog laban sa mga patutsada ni Salonga.

Ang Luminous blog ay pinangangasiwaan ng mga abogado na sina Atty. Trixie Cruz-Angelez at Ahmed Paglinawan.

Ang anti-terrorism bill ay sinertipikahan ni Pangulong Rodrigo Roa Duterte na urgent nitong gitna ng 2020. Pirma na lang ng Presidente ang kailangan para maging ganap na batas ito.
