Here's the Complete Statement of Aries Aguirre.:
A lot of people is asking me what is my take regarding Digong's statement about the US-AuS issue:
Currently we have the US primaries and let us reverse the situation. Our Philippine Ambassador to the US issued a statement on US media condemning the hardline stance of Republican Candidates on illegal immigration and castigating the Democratic candidates for their pro choice stand on Abortion and we raised morality issue. Do you think those candidates will take it lightly?
Do you think those candidates will be gentle to the Philippines? Mind you those are legitimate concerns. If you want to make it more personal, what if Bill Clinton that time was running for reelection then Monica Lewinsky scandal broke out. As we are so morally upright the Philippine Embassy issued a statement in US media admonishing Clinton. Will Bill Clinton bow down to the ambassador? The first thing he will do is to recall the US ambassador in the Philippines.Think! Read between the lines, Duterte's point is we need to be proud as a Filipino.
We don't need foreigners to tell us what is moral or not. We need to learn how to stand on what we have as a nation. We are too hang up on friendly ties and what will other countries will say against us. Eh putang ina, yung gobyerno natin hindi natin mapagtiwalaan yung ibang bansa pa? Mag isip isip kayo! Be proud to be a Filipino!
