Nanindigan si National Intelligence Coordinating Agency (NICA) Director General Alex Paul Monteagudo sa kanyang social media post at sinabing hindi siya nagpapakalat ng pekeng impormasyon noong sinabi niya na ang mga leftist congressmen ng Makabayan Bloc ay mga terorista.
Magugunita na inalmahan nila Reps. Carlos Zarate (Bayan Muna party-list) and Sarah Elago (Kabataan party-list) ang post ni Monteagudo sa budget hearing ng NICA.
Pero tinindigan ni Monteagudo ang kanyang naging pahayag.
“Sa aking mga kababayan,
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32 KJV)
As the Director General of the National Intelligence Coordinating Agency (NICA), it is my sworn duty to protect and defend the Constitution of the Republic of the Philippines and the Filipino people from forces that seek to destroy our freedom and democratic way of life.
Last September 29, 2020, during the deliberation of the NICA budget, Congressmen Carlos Isagani Zarate and Sarah Jane Elago who are members of the “MAKABAYAN” Bloc composed of BAYAN MUNA, ACT Teachers, GABRIELA, and KABATAAN Party-lists, accused that my posts in my Facebook account are fake, implying that I am a purveyor of false information.
I, THEREFORE, CATEGORICALLY DENY THE SAID ACCUSATIONS!
The reason why I share posts in my FB personal account is no different from all FB account holders. It is because I find the post inspiring or entertaining or informative.
Thus, I shared posts in my FB because I see them as artistic expressions of our people similar to the sentiments of former rebels, Indigenous Peoples (IPs) victims and parents who have finally gained the courage to stand up and reveal the truth about members of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) who are now in Congress, the MAKABAYAN Bloc led by Congressman Zarate, masquerading as defenders of “human rights”, when they are actually part of a terrorist organization that has killed thousands of Filipinos, destroyed many families and robbed the Filipino people of the peaceful and prosperous lives we all dream of.
I am sharing the posts of the officers of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the National Task Force to End the Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC) because I believe that it is the duty of every Filipino to defend our Constitution, our democracy, and our people against groups such the CPP/NPA/NDF that seek to violently overthrow our duly constituted government.
I am sharing posts in behalf of the many Indigenous Peoples (IPs) that the Communist Terrorists have exploited and murdered.
More importantly, I am sharing their posts which calls for the protection of family and our children from exploitation and abuse of this Communist Terrorist Group by revealing their network in Congress, which is the MAKABAYAN Bloc, that has grieved the hearts of many parents who lost their children because they were recruited as NPAs and later left to die in a place away from the comfort of their homes and the love of their family.
These are just some of the reasons why I am sharing their posts.
The MAKABAYAN Bloc representatives are members of the CPP/NPA which has been declared as a terrorist group by the Philippine government and included in the list of terrorist organizations by five other countries including the United States (US) and the European Union (EU).
All members of the CPP pledge allegiance to the CPP flag and Constitution, the preamble of which, seeks the violent overthrow of the government and the establishment of a communist form of government by undermining our democratic institution.
It is no wonder that this MAKABAYAN Bloc are undermining the NTF-ELCAC by blocking the budget of the Presidential Communication Operations Office (PCOO), the National Security Council (NSC) and the NICA.
We will not be intimidated by Congressman Zarate and the rest of the MAKABAYAN Bloc representatives from exposing their true color as proxies of the Communist Terrorist Group.
For 51 years, the CPP/NPA/NDF has been deceiving our people and our children. Our best weapon against these lies and deceptions is the truth. But, who will reveal the truth if we are cowed and intimidated by these Congressmen? Sino ang magsasalita? Kung hindi tayo, sino? At kung hindi ngayon, kailan?
Sa aking mga kababayan, magtulungan po tayo upang protektahan ang ating pamilya at mga anak laban sa panlilinlang at pang aabuso ng mga CPP/NPA/NDF Communist Terrorists.
Mahigit 51 taon na tayong pinagsasamantalahan ng grupong ito. Tama na!!! Itigil na natin ito!!!
Let us not allow them to deceive us and murder our people for another 50 years and this is the reason why I am sharing to our people the truth about the Communist Terrorist Groups!
BUT, IF TELLING THE TRUTH IS NOW A CRIME, THEN I WILL GLADLY GO TO JAIL!!!
Para sa Bayan!”
