Two thumbs way up

Respeto na lang po, mga kaibigan.

Sa lahat ng taga-UP na nanggagalaiti sa mga salitang binitawan ng “Kagalang-galang” na Kalihim ng Kagawaran ng Katarungan (o ang kawalan nito) na si Raul Gonzalez, hayaan na lang po natin siyang magsalita.

To Sec. Raul Gonzalez, if you mean destabilizer as being a person who is socially aware, assertive, critical and actively participating in our nation’s development, a person who does not tolerate mediocrity and apathy, a person who selflessly protects the rights and freedom of the people through involvement in various political, social and economic activities, then I am guilty as charged. By all means crucify me and a number our nation’s civil servants, political leaders, and businessmen who strive hard to make this country a better place. Do this, and you will be left with people like yourself who epitomize self-righteousness and utter arrogance.

May I also take the opportunity to thank you for acknowledging the efforts of the Scholars of the Land. This just means we UP alumni are making a dent on Philippine society. Mabuhay ang mga Iskolar ng Bayan.
