Political Analyst Remarks in the SC's Decision to Allow Marcos Burial at LNB Went Viral




The decision of the Supreme Court of the Philippines (SC) to allow the burial of former President Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani received mixed reactions among netizens. Those who were victims of Martial Law and supporters of Pres. Aquino were dismayed with the decision but those who were Marcos Loyalists they welcome the decision gratefully.


A veteran political analyst and considered as one of social media's most influential personality, Antonio Contreras shared an interesting remarks on Facebook that caught the attentions of most netizens online.

According to Contreras, Marcos burial at the Libingan does not rewrite history. It does not make him a hero. It doesn't change minds of people for or against him. It only adds a narrative that was written by a Court decided according to the law.

The veteran mentor and political analyst added the following statement on his Facebook Page:

I have been partial to a Marcos burial because it is allowed by law. Its just that the Court affirmed my belief.

But had the Court decided otherwise, I would have respected it the same way I respected their ruling on Grace Poe.

You say Marcos killed democracy. That is why you hated him until now. Then be consistent and celebrate democracy by respecting the Court if you disagree with it. To do less will be a disservice to the very democracy you value.
