Remember this day. Remember Pear Harbor. December 7th, 1941---a date which will live in infamy. Salute and prostrate. Hail, the valour of the victorious dead.
A few days ago, I was still on the neutral/rather-not-speak side. I thought to myself, I'm just a spectator anyway, what do I know? Sure, Daniel had always made more sense; sure, I've never really trusted that lying no-brainer skank, erm, immaculate genius, Nicole. But to claim that Daniel was innocent to the world wasn't a very stable thing to say considering my lack of knowledge of what really happened. You see, unlike those crazy rally-freaks, if I don't know shit about something, I'd rather be humble with my views.
But now, I've heard what I've needed to hear, went through with what I've needed to go through, and have summed up enough to stand by Daniel. I am not saying that Daniel is completely innocent. Like the rally-freaks who claim they support the "truth", I still remain within the spectator grouping (again, just like them; they just arrogantly think they're not). But unlike the flag-burners and rally-freaks---blinded and intoxicated by their own selfish, one-dimensional political causes---I, however, sincerely want a fair and just trial for both Danny and 'Cole, and actually do know enough to formulate an educated say at the very least. Yes, he might have done something wrong or unethical somewhere in the events described by the complainant as "rape". Dannyboy is no angel, we all know that, but neither is the girl. You all know what I mean, we've all heard her inconsistent stories and politically-puppeted speeches---and especially for the unbiased who actually know her---we all know that she's far from being the damsel-in-distress that she (and her feminazi overladies) try so hard to put up. I quote: “Let's not create a fantasy world here where she's the innocent girl who's the damsel-in-distress type. For the love of LOGIC, let's not even discuss that. It's intellectually insulting.” I just loved that interview with Mel Tiangco where she got slapped hard by the lady's devious but smart-arse questioning (read as: "Huli ka"). That's what you get when you're unprepared to lie all over again. Integrity-wise, bagsak na si ineng. Tsk, tsk.
I still don't know much, though. Not near what his lawyers know, that is. But I think I've summed up enough for myself to separate the lies from the bigger lies. Judge Pozon made a mistake by letting his emotions rule over him. Did you hear his little speech? How unprofessional to mingle your personal, biased sentiments of sympathy towards the woman with the facts that truly matter but were obviously sadly ignored. If it were indeed his emotions, then he is a fool. But of course, it might as well be politics. In Daniel's somewhat prophetic words: “Oh we’ll find the three innocent and convict the other one just so everyone’s happy.” Poor Daniel. It just breaks my heart. Victim of the nearing elections. A sacrificial lamb. What, set him free, and leave the militant's cry for blood unappeased? Not wise, the puppet-masters agreed. What they stupidly didn't foresee (could they be really that stupid not to?), is that such an enormous error in judgment would, most definitely, sour relations with the country's most valuable ally (though not my favourite).
Poor Nicole. She thinks she's won, having had the sympathy of the court. But sympathy it is not. It's all a bleedin' scheme. Plus, poor girl's "humiliation story" is obviously being milked by the communist whores. Gamitan, bow. At makialam pa daw sa VFA? I bet she doesn't even know what it is. Bloody Mary. You're being used and abused (ergo, raped) by these maenads for their oh-so-tiring publicity press releases, and you're just letting them? But hey, it is your life. Feel free to whore (ah, familiar word...) your integrity.
And you, Gabriela, don't you have more important things to attend to, besides all these political ramblings? Gang rape in Maguindanao? 15-year old girl abused by 3 Filipino soldiers? Domestic violence, all around? Fools. They think they matter, but they don't. They've lost whatever it was that they originally stood for.
Again, I pray for the naked truth. At 'tanginang yaya naman, huwag nang makialam kasi ang mga walang alam.
I urge people all around to write and say what you feel and what you know. (We'd appreciate it of course if it'd be sensible.) Speak up. Hail your free and bright minds. End this grey age, where the wise are nonchalant; choosing to be silent and letting fools rule over their lives. Take charge of the world. Change it. There is hope. There is always hope.
