(Second of four parts)
Here are some concrete examples.
This paper, culled from firsthand accounts of former CPP cadres and independent researchers, including personal accounts from a former CPP cadre, Ka Jun Jimenez who recently surfaced, will junk the hoax of the Plaza Miranda Bombing that has been peddled by the Oligarch-Left collusion for the longest time once and for all.
But for the sake of discussion, I have listed herein a list of the so-called fake news, lies and deceits, propagated by the Oligarch-Left collusion to seize power from Marcos and thereafter maintain political power, which they, the Yellows, have been enjoying for 36 years now.
I. Jabidah Massacre – the so-called Jabidah “massacre” of March 1968— according to Bobi Tiglao, was the Yellow Cult’s first colossal fake news.
The destabilization campaign against Marcos started with a privilege speech by Ninoy Aquino where he falsely divulged an alleged mass killing of members of a select group training in Corregidor whose objective was to retake Sabah.
Aquino’s speech centered on the supposed statement given by a certain Jibin Arula; a Muslim youth who claimed to have escaped from the secret training in Corregidor but who were ordered killed by Marcos when the plan to invade Sabah leaked.
The Lopez Media Group – ABS-CBN and the Manila Chronicle immediately pounced on Ninoy’s “exposé,” which was exploited by student activists in the University of the Philippines under the direction of Kabataang Makabayan, Sison and Nur Misuari, who at that time, was also teaching in the said university.
For the past 54 years, this issue has been recycled every now and then at their convenience even as no family member of the supposed victims of the massacre had ever come out in the open to file a case against Marcos and whoever had perpetrated that even as it had been alleged that around 68 individuals have fallen victims to the supposed massacre;
II. The First Quarter Storm – A three-month long series of political rallies staged by the Left commencing with the throwing of cardboard emblems of a coffin and a paper mâché crocodile at Marcos after he delivered the State of the Nation, resulting to the eruption of violent protest actions;
“A single spark can start a prairie fire”
Ka Jun, who spoke in a news forum two weeks ago, said Sison and his ilk touted the First Quarter Storm or FQS as the single spark to start the people’s war.
The students were to carry out a series of “confrontational” mass actions aimed at taunting the government forces to harass them “which would force them to join the underground movement.”
FQS was aimed to foment chaos, to provoke the “reactionary” state to react violently against the students, protestors.
And while the majority of these students were intimately connected to the working class and peasantry, the FQS never moved beyond its social base in the student population. It consciously and secretly pursued the interests of the LP faction of the ruling class and profited from the relationship. The chanted slogans and newsprint manifestos all directed the students merely to escalate their denunciations of Ferdinand Marcos and “fascism” and ultimately to join the armed struggle in the countryside – and no matter how truly courageous and self-sacrificing many of the young people who joined its ranks – the First Quarter Storm was, in the end, was, but a violent venting of steam..
FQS fell short of their objective as even if the students bore witness to the most chaotic mass actions ever staged in Philippine history, culminating in the UP Commune, the students had to ease up in preparation for the final exams and then retreated to their own provinces for their summer vacation.
III. Plaza Miranda Bombing. More on this issue later;
IV. August 1972 MV Karagatan landing of war materials – Eleven months after PMB, the CPP/NPA deployed hundreds of new recruits, mostly students, to carry out the retrieval of the first shipment of Chinese arms, including 1,200 U.S. M-14 rifles, which was brought along the shore Palanan, Isabela Province.
A month after, Marcos declared Martial Law;
V. April 24, 1980 Murder of Macli-ing Dulag – Dulag, the Kalinga Tribe Chief opposed to the Cordillera, Chico River Hydroelectric power Project was killed for which Marcos was blamed. This later turned out to be another fake news as perpetrators turned out to be the Left themselves;
VI. August 21, 1983 Murder of Ninoy Aquino – the event which played a major factor in the ouster of Marcos. Though initially blamed on Marcos, latest developments reveal otherwise; and,
VII. February 7, 1986 Snap Elections – This was marred by allegations of massive cheating, which resulted led to the so-called, 1986 EDSA Revolution;
