Vice President and presidential aspirant Leni Robredo on Tuesday urged supporters (“Kakampinks”) to always stay humble and exercise sobriety amid criticisms.
She asked supporters to initiate moves to heal the wounds due to political differences with their loved ones, saying this is what she calls “radical love.”
In a Facebook video, she said she is aware that the present political climate for the 2022 elections has caused disunity among families and friends.
“It is high time. Let us take the first move. Let us reach out to those you have argued with. If you on social media things not to their own liking, explain to them calmly and with respect,” she said.
“Ask how they are. Talk to them. Heal the wounds. Open the way to love,” she added.
She reacted to supporters who would initiate heated exchanges on social media with the administration bets and even the leftist electoral aspirants.
She said she believes some people would take advantage of other people just to push for their agenda. She said their enemy is not their fellow countrymen.
“Let us remind them about the truth. We are each other’s enemies. We are going through the same things. We have the same dreams. And there is only one path toward this: decent, humane, and loving governance,” Robredo said.
Earlier, President Rodrigo Duterte called the vice president and presidential aspirant and former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr. as “pro-communists” in an unprecedented and unexpected tirade.
