A Chronicle of the Da Pinoys and Da Coconut Repablik of Da Pilipins
“Nationalism is power hunger tempered by self deception”
UPDATE: Thanks to my friend Jeff Probe, I will reveal another shocking story. The current President of Taiwan has the lowest approval rating in their history. He may be stirring up the masses to boost his popularity. We cannot confirm yet if he is the main motivator or the fuel to the fire of butthurt Taiwanese. For me, I am not exactly surprised, that is the game of politics.
Folks, I apologise for the somewhat harsh language but it is the most appropriate term for these two countries recently. The news? Well the Philippine Coast Guard opened fire and killed a Taiwanese fisherman who attempted to cross the disputed waters in the north. After that, the Foreign Ministry demanded an apology or else they will threaten the country with a naval drill. The government hastily apologised but it was not accepted or even too late.
Xenophobia and race riots began since last week as Taiwanese citizens assaulted Filipino migrant workers in many urban centres all over their country. Hundreds of people burn Filipino flags, a portrait of Aquino and other stuff related to the Philippines. This incident makes me say what the fuck? Are these people barbarians? Can they think rationally and not be overruled by their emotions? Well in fact, the butthurt reaction of Taiwan is very similar to us Filipinos.
Aquino apologised to Taiwan but I will also note that the Philippine government did not apologised to the Hong Kong citizens killed during the Manila hostage crisis. This was also the first event that proved that the Aquino administration is incompetent to run the country. Back to the main topic, my point here is these two citizens are nothing but a bunch of crybaby faggots. They are like children. They are very immature in their protests and riots.
Fortunately, most government officials in Taiwan are pragmatic. The President of Taiwan calls for calm to its citizens. Well you must do your job to calm this mob. Several people are now probably swayed by the fever and joined the protest because of conformity. Filipinos in the Internet are calling for revenge, some calling for war. A hilarious comment by a Filipino said “Evil for evil, let us also send one Taiwanese into a morgue here!” Well, this guy wanted to repeat the barbarism of the countries in the 20th century?
Seriously, are they nuts? Taiwan has the military capability to strike us while we cannot. Our army faces ammunition shortages, overall it’s in shambles. the organisation is a mess, the officers are largely incompetent and our weapons are so obsolete that the Taiwanese can use our ships and planes for target practice. Several netizens from both sides are calling for a boycott. Seriously, it will harm the economy of both countries. The guys who are blabbering those bullshit are a bunch of morons.
I am seriously laughing that several are suggesting of withdrawing all Filipino workers from Taiwan. It will done more harm than good to us. Do we have jobs comparable to that country in the first place? None, they will just return again and again to that country. Taiwan can merely replace them with either their own people or other foreign workers who have more expertise than us. In the end, we will be the absolute losers.
To the Anon groups of both sides, stop the attacks. It will only make the situation worse. This is not child’s play, this is a real deal. you are like a bunch of children who have no clear agendas to speak of “why are we doing this’? Seriously, why are you doing this? Nationalism? Nationalism is already an outdated ideology and an illusion. It is a parasite in peacetime.
I encourage both sides to stop their protests and cyber attacks. We can discuss this through diplomacy. Both sides must not risk war, it will only bring little benefit to them. Both sides, be rational! Use your brain, do not let your emotions overrule your mind! Stop being butthurt both of you. You are only making yourselves laughing stocks of the international community. Remember, you are not children.
For the leaders of both sides, we shall maintain our close ties with each other. Both of us are mutually benefiting from trade and expertise of both citizens. This crisis must be solved before it becomes a larger headache for the bureaucrats of both sides. That is only my advice. Racism is more fun in both Taiwan and the Philippines! Nationalism is indeed the measles of mankind,
Attack me for not being biased, for not supporting any side. I will rebut your arguments against me. Until then guys, I see you in my next article. Remember, war is sweet for those who have never experienced it. Pardon for my title for the LGBT community BTW. I shall play this song:
