Veteran Lawyer Lambasts Lawmakers Who Voted Against the Extension of Martial Law in Mindanao


One of the country's most prominent lawyer and a well-known defender of Pres. Rody Duterte on social media, Atty. Bruce Villafuerte Rivera posted an Open Letter to all lawmakers who voted against the extension of Martial Law in Mindanao.


According to Atty. Rivera the decision of the senators and congressmen/congresswomen regarding the issue of Martial Law is an undeniable proof that they shown not only their party affiliation but disturbingly made clear that their loyalty lies first and foremost in their party even to the prejudice of the nation.

The veteran lawyer also encouraged all Filipinos to never forget their names and we should always remember those who vote against the extension of Martial Law in Mindanao. The reasons why we should not forget is because when the life of our nation hangs in the balance, they are the very people who will be all too willing to kill this nation all in the name of party.


Here's the Complete Open Letter of Atty. Bruce Rivera:

WIMPS

The few who voted against the extension of Martial Law have shown not only their party affiliation but disturbingly made clear that their loyalty lies first and foremost in their party even to the prejudice of the nation. Remember their names. Why? Because when the life of our nation hangs in the balance, they are the very people who will be all too willing to kill this nation all in the name of party.

Their justification for not allowing the extension of Martial Law reads out like a pathetic paranoid scream. They said, if Congress will allow the extension of ML, it will give rise to a dangerous precedent whereby every isolated disturbance or violence will be justification to declare military rule.

Yes, the anti-ML legislators have chosen paranoia over logic. They have chosen to just let the gains of the declaration of Martial Law on the operations in Marawi go to waste because they are paranoid that Duterte will go crazy and declare Martial Law in their own backyard. They have chosen to just let the bodies of our soldiers pile up because they are afraid that Martial Law will bite them in the ass.

Yes, as expected, these legislators shamelessly chose personal fears over the safety and integrity of the entire Philippine archipelago. Yes, we do not expect that the Senators and Congressman we voted are patriots and nationalists but they should not be wimps either. Wimps have no place in public service. They belong to some 8-5 office job protected from the elements.

I want public servants with balls. Those who will be willing to make the hard decisions despite the risks because it is the best decision for the Filipino people. Those who will have the balls to declare war rather than be held hostage by terrorism or fear.

And I have just made the list of people I will NEVER EVER vote for in any elections as if my life depended on it.
