President Rodrigo Duterte stated the “yellow” brigade ought to settle for actuality that the winner does take it all in politics.
Duterte stated the losers in the 2016 elections shouldn’t really feel dangerous that he pushed for the burial of the late President Ferdinand Marcos on the Libingang ng mga Bayani or that the Liberal Party had been gutted like a fish when the majority of its members jumped to his previously moribund occasion, Partido Demokratikong Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan.
In his speech, Duterte recalled how his father turned a Cabinet member in Marcos’ first time period (1965 to 1969) by being fiercely loyal to the Ilocano chief even in the face of nice odds.
“During the time of (Diosdado) Macapagal, he was running for reelection. Marcos was the opponent, Nacionalista. My father was a Nacionalista. Tapos lahat ng governors pati mayors ng Mindanao lumipat na doon kay Macapagal. Just like now, nagpuntahan ng PDP,” stated Duterte.
“But my father and (former Zamboanga del Sur Governor Bienvenido) Ebarle stuck it out with Marcos. So when he won sa presidente, he took in my father as Secretary of General Services — Bureau of Supply, printing, ‘yung mga titulo ng — properties of the government were under that office. Pero matagal na ‘yon. Ganito ang style niyan eh. Kagaya ngayon, which is really natural. I mean, there’s nothing wrong with it. Winner takes all talaga ang Pilipinas eh,” he added.
He used the winner-take-all precept in defending his determination to offer into the Ilocos Norte Gov. Imee Marcos’ plea to let her father get his want of being lain tor est amongst heroes. Imee was among the many handful of native authorities officers who backed Duterte’s presidential marketing campaign.
” On each counts, he was a soldier if his document will not be actually clear or muddled up, that’s historical past so that you can determine, not mine…Kaya nung pagdating ng panahon, sabi ni Imee, ‘Mayor…’ ‘Sige, ilibing mo’. Kanya ‘yan eh. It’s his…And if the Ilocanos wish to have a hero in the identify of Ferdinand Marcos, ibigay mo sa kanila. Kanila ‘yan eh. Otherwise, half of ‘yung Ilocandia or Ilokano-speaking, magdamdam ‘yan and it will proceed to divide the nation,” he stated.
Duterte stated the yellow brigade ought to simply lick their wounds, settle for defeat and cease considering in colours.
“And ang sabi ko doon sa mga iba, itong mga yellow. Ganun ‘yung putang inang, yellow ba ‘yan? I mean no insult. Hindi baka… Ito, ito ‘yung kulay nila. Sana pagkatapos ng eleksyon, tama na. So ‘yung yellow, wala na,” he stated.
“Ako nung tumakbo, sabi ‘anong kulay natin?’ ‘Ah maski anong kulay’. Kulay-kulay, maniwala ka diyan. Wala akong kulay. Kung ano lang available diyan sa hardware. Maniwala kayong kulay-kulay.,” he added.
