Director slams "yellow" leaders and followers: "It does hurt a lot to see someone you abhor succeed. It is called bitterness."


After five-month battle of Filipino soldiers against against gunmen loyal to the Islamic State (IS) jihadist group, President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday declared Marawi City “liberated from terrorist influence.” 


Ladies and gentlemen, I hereby declare Marawi City liberated from terrorist influence. That marks the beginning of rehabilitation,” Duterte said.

Meanwhile, it seems that many anti-Duterte are saying that the President had no contribution to the success our soldiers achieved.

However, Movie director Manny Castañeda hits the "yellow leaders" and their followers for insisting that President Duterte has done nothing to free Marawi City from the terrorist attacked of the Maute group.

Castañeda cited things that Duterte has done to achieved the victory of our soldiers against the terrorist.

Castañeda explained that Duterte is the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the military consulted him in "every step of the way during the battle."

He also said that Duterte went to Marawi many times to boost the morale of our soldiers which made them more prepared, confident and patriotic.

The director even compared Duterte to former president Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino who "unashamedly ignored the arrival of the 44 massacred SAF soldiers and gave more priority to a social event where he was the center of attention and not some dead bodies."

Read his full post below:

"The yellow leaders and followers insist that the liberation of Marawi City is due to the military alone and nothing else. Some would blatantly emphasize that Pres. Duterte had no contribution to its success in any manner whatsoever.

I think they have ignored the fact that the president is the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces and as such, the military consulted with Pres. Duterte in every step of the way during the battle. Furthermore, he visited the war zone on a regular basis to personally see and supervise the development. Unlike Noynoy Aquino, who at the height of the Mamasapano encounter left everything in the hands of a suspended, inept, and corrupt general. And like a useless senorito, he just stayed in the comforts of the palace.

Also, did they not notice that Pres. Duterte constantly met with the soldiers to boost their morale? And when in battle, soldiers were aptly provided with the necessary military support and assistance. As a result, our soldiers became more prepared, confident and patriotic as well. Our soldiers went to war not because it was a just a job but more because of love for their country. Whereas Noynoy Aquino haphazardly threw the SAF in Mamasapano like hurling raw meat in a lion’s den. He probably just saw them as mere bodies that were hired to serve a master.

We all know what happened next and why.

Lastly, Pres. Duterte mourned the death of every single soldier who perished in the war in Marawi. He acknowledged the sacrifices they have done. He honored them on behalf of all the Filipinos. In contrast to Noynoy Aquino who unashamedly ignored the arrival of the 44 massacred SAF soldiers and gave more priority to a social event where he was the center of attention and not some dead bodies. In effect, Noynoy Aquino ruthlessly deprived the SAF 44 the honor and respect they deserved.

I ask. Does it hurt so much to give credit where credit is due? Or does it hurt them so much that the person they abhor has done something right? I guess it does. 

It does hurt a lot to see someone you abhor succeed. I think it is called bitterness.

(Note: I may sound like a Duterte apologist but I would much rather be considered an Aquino antagonist. Hehehe.)"
