NP hits Aquino for ‘insulting Filipinos’

Patriotic Filipinos might want to get behind Nacionalista member and Iloilo vice governor Rolex Suplico who is taking Liberal presidential candidate Sen. Beningo Aquino III to task for insulting the country’s intelligence.

Aquino, while challenging Nacionalista presidential candidate Sen. Manuel Villar Jr to debate on policies and platforms, reportedly said that “our countrymen, who need to be educated, probably lose their concentration or attention in long winded debates.” In reference to preferring to go on a shorter one-on-one debate with Villar, no doubt.

Suplico will have none of it, though, and takes up the cudgels for the poor maligned Filipino:

“Sen. Noynoy Aquino thought that Filipinos have short concentration or attention spans. It is for this reason that he is asking for a one-on-one debate with Sen. Manny Villar. I think that Senator Aquino does not know the Filipino people that well.”

The situation opens up some interesting questions about the decidedly elite-versus-the-masses orientation of the 2010 elections. After all, Aquino’s statement is certainly—oh, a puppy!!!

    Ooohh. Well then, for the sake of argument, what is a Filipino? Fucking Sulpico, kaya sya nanalo because he knows what to say at the right time.

    We were never one in the first place. even if you take out the rich vs. poor attribute. Regionalism for example. Were fucking bigots nga eh,specially those who are born and lives in Imperial Manila, not to mention Filipinos who live in america who are oh-so-proud to be called a Fil-AM.

    Ano nga ba ang isang Pilipino?As a whole, do Filipinos deserve to be insulted?Ikaw, pag nakakita ka ng walang trabaho,walang pinagaralan, o nagpapanggap na alam mga pinagssabi eh hindi mo ba sya iinsultuhin?
