Sorry sa mga kamag-anak at kaibigan kong Marcos loyalists. Pero nakakainit ng ulo dito si Bongbong Marcos, in so many counts:
1. He enumerates his father’s accomplishments. Roads built, rice sufficiency, etc. But he never said that his father was in power for 20 LONG YEARS! Pag wala ka pa naman nagawa ng 20 years, ewan ko nalang.
2. He enumerated his father’s accomplishments, but never mentioned about the rest of the story. Bilions of dollars in debts. Kanino nanggaling yon? No. 1 corrupt nation, kaninong panahong nangyari yon? The human rights violations? The cronies? Need to go on and on?
3. He was so proud that the youth who have never seen his father’s presidency are saying “Buti pa nung panahon ni Marcos…” Precisely the point! They were not there to experience it. I was a Marcos baby and was not able to experience what people older than me are saying. But history is more accessible now than ever. So, for the young, know your history.
Ayos naman sana na sabihin nalang na hindi nya kasalanan yon, kasalanan ng tatay nya yon. He technically doesn’t need to say sorry. But he tried. However, his ‘sorry’ wasn’t at all. He wasn’t sorry. He was proud and arrogant. And loving it.
