PMA Alumnus Dan Jimenez Burns La Salle and Ateneo's Joint Statement on the 46th Anniversary of Martial Law


Veteran member of the Philippine Navy and Philippine Military Academy Class of 1977 Alumnus Dan Jimenez burned down the joint statement of two of the country's most prominent educational institutions, the Ateneo De Manila University and De La Salle University on the 46th anniversary of Martial Law Declaration.



According to the former member of the Armed Forces who is now based in the United States, Sir Dan Jimenez, he assumed that La Salle and Ateneo have a superior intellect than most Filipinos but they should read their statement that says "there can be no moving on without admittance, contrition and reparation. Until then, the evil tentacles of Martial Law will continue to fester and wound our democracy."

The statement of La Salle and Ateneo was questioned by Jimenez as he asked how can Marcos admit and offer contention and reparation when he is already dead, therefore they should show the way so all Filipinos can move on from the alleged horrors of Martial Law.

He also questioned on how the tentacles of Martial Law continue to fester and wound our democracy when it has been over 32 years since Martial Law has been lifted and Marcos has been deposed.



Here's the Complete Statement of Dan Jimenez:

To the Presidents of La Salle and Ateneo:

You wrote and I quote: "there can be no moving on without admittance, contrition and reparation. Until then, the evil tentacles of Martial Law will continue to fester and wound our democracy".

I would assume that you have a superior intellect than most. I just don't know whether you read your statement first before you signed it.

How can Marcos admit and offer contrition and reparation when he is dead? Can you show the way so we can all move on? Bwahahahahahaha! Excuse me, I can't help it.

How can the tentacles of Martial Law continue to fester and wound our democracy when it has been over 32 years since Martial Law has been lifted and Marcos has been deposed? What festering tentacles and democracy's wounds is Marcos still inflicting? May I repeat that he is dead?



I do agree with you that young Filipinos should understand and learn the lessons of history. That those who presented themselves savior of democracy became purveyors of abuse and suppressors of dissent. That after Marcos, the ordinary Filipinos' state deteriorated even more. That 30 plus years after, Ninoy Aquino's murder is still unsolved even with the wife and the son becoming president. That history from the mouth of academicians stuck in their ivory towers should never be taken without a mouthful of salt.

BTW, do you really think that because you are the presidents of La Salle and Ateneo, your statement is beyond reproach? That it should be taken hook, line, sinker and letter head? Should the ordinary Filipino just bow and whimper " we are not worthy?"

Have you had your daily dose of superiority yet?

Dan Jimenez (Class 77) left the Navy in disgust over the way former President Marcos manipulated the military. He’s still known in the Fil-Am community as an activist, organizing protests over a wide range of issues, from the perceived racial slur against Filipino doctors in an episode of the TV soap "Desperate Housewives."

Jimenez also made headlines earlier for defending Sen. Manny Pacquiao who was mocked by his critics as a lawmaker and noted that Pacquiao should be considered as a "National Treasure" and should not be mocked because of some shortcomings as a lawmaker.
