"The best thing that ever happened to our country was when Marcos declared Martial Law"-Cherry Cobarrubias


The 
leader of Marcos Loyalists for God, Country, and People said that "Martial law was the best thing happened" in the country and denied the allegation that Marcos committed human rights abuses.

"Sabi ko nga, the best thing that ever happened to our country was when Marcos declared Martial Law. Grabe ang kaguluhan noon," Marcos loyalists leader, Cherry Cobarrubias said.

According to 
Cobarrubias, the burial was a form of corrective historical revisionism. She said Marcos declared Martial law to defend the country from the chaos.

"Alam mo, unang una, hindi ako naniniwala na restored ang democracy. Unang una, hindi naman namatay ang demokrasya, eh. Nag-declare lang si Marcos ng Martial Law because that was necessary—that was the height of the cold war, ang daming kaguluhan. No choice ang presidente kundi ipagtanggol ang bayan," Cobbarubias said.

"Ito ang pinakamagandang instrument to prevent the violent takeover of the communist groups. Kaya nga kung sasabihing babaguhin natin ang kasaysayan, talagang babaguhin natin nang maitama," Cobbarubias added.

Moreover, she expressed her views with regards to the young people rallied over the Marcos burial.


"'Yun ang nakakaawa, kasi 'yung mga estudyante, alam mo naman na hindi nila naiintindihan ang kasaysayan," Cobbarubias said.

Cobarrubias also speaks about the human right abuses said that it may have been dramatically overemphasized.

"'Yung kaso sa Hawaii nu'ng mag-file 'yung human rights claimants, 3,000 'yung sinasabing claimants—doble-doble pa 'yung pangalan kasi away ng mag-asawa, away ng boyfriend, nakalagay doon na victims. Tapos 'yung abogado nila, pumunta dito, naglagay ng tables kung saan-saang probinsya, sabi kung sino 'yung mga biktima ni Marcos, magpalista," Cobbarubias said.

"What I'm trying to say is walang katotohanan. Masyado nilang pinalaki. Kasi sabi ko nga, Marcos has no human rights case in the Philippines. Sana nu'ng nawala si Marcos sa Pilipinas, nag-file sila. Mas nag-ano sila nu'ng claim nu'ng pera sa Hawaii. Pagkatapos ngayon sasabihin nila na biktima sila, saan-saan sila nanggaling," she added.

She was grateful that the Supreme Court decision was in favor of the burial.

"Nagpapasalamat kami na finally, truth prevails. 'Yung siyam na mahistrado na desisyon in favor of the burial of the late president. So we're happy, we're glad," Cobbarubias said.
