Ex- DILG Alunan lambasted The New York times: 'Nakakainis ang syndicated narrative to frame the Duterte administration'
Former Department of Interior and Local Government Secretary Rafael Alunan III lambasted the New York Times for their write up on the extrajudicial killings in the country. It as if, their narrative report is to frame up the Duterte administration.
The New York Times posted a question on their Facebook page asking, in the drug on war "who is determining who dies?"
He has the names of more than a million drug dealers and corrupt officials in the Philippines. In this violent new drug war, who is determining who dies?
And because of that post, Alunan reposted it and said, "The trouble with pointing is that there are three fingers pointing back. This know-it-all paper got it between the eyes."
Moreover, Alunan wrote another post, wherein he expressed his thoughts over it.
He condemned the NYT for their naive questions and he enumerated down his answer.
Alunan also criticized NYT for their one-sided report. He said, because if ever they wrote it fairly, it won't also it won't fit their syndicated narrative that this government "plays God."
Read the entire post of Alunan:
Nakakainis ang syndicated narrative to frame the Du30 administration about the so-called unsolved murders called "EJK" in preparation for regime change.Here's below the earlier post of Alunan with the screenshot of NYT post. Also, it has a applauded comments from a netizen.
Ang daming self-righteous parrots and proxies ng mga disinformation experts of global vested interests in partnership with local oligarchs in bed with crime syndicates that corrupt our institutions especially our criminal justice system.
Ito ang sinulat ko sa isang thread kontra sa isang commentary sa New York Times (NYT) na nagtatanong "who chooses to live and die" dito sa Pilipinas:
"Who chooses who lives and dies? That is a naive question.
Firstly, the war on organised crime is a war. There are protagonists - the government and the criminals. Criminals kill to survive and when facing arrest fight back to kill the threat. In that situation, deaths are dealt on both sides.
Secondly, it's as if the NYT doesn't know how the mob operates right under its noses. There is fierce competition in the streets for distribution control and market share to protect and expand its commercial gains. When gangs clash for territorial gain, they kill each other just like soldiers of countries fighting and killing to gain territory and defeat their enemies. They kill competitors, squealers, potential threats to the business, and perceived traitors in their ranks. NYT, you didn't know that? Shame on you.
Thirdly, addicts/pushers steal, mug and/or kill to sustain their habit, and when high beyond control, they commit suicide or thrill kill. Not all addicts do, but all addicts potentially can turn violent. Start with the kids who're hooked and jobless. Are their families and civil society in general doing their part to contain and reverse the problem?
Fourthly, there are rogue government officials and uniformed personnel in the payroll of the mobsters. They kill to protect their secrets, or when ordered by the mob they report to, or are sometimes killed, in turn, by lawful authorities. They are being brought to justice as fast as the crippled criminal justice system can allow, crippled by these very people and by vested interests.
Fifth, there are vigilantes who kill out of exasperation with the criminal justice system. Who they are needs detective work because these killers don't carry a placard saying 'I did it.' They too have to brought before the bar of justice long bastardized by the powers-that-be you know so well, NYT, who operate out of entitlement and impunity.
Sixth, there are political enemies of the Du30 administration with proven links to the syndicates who kill people indiscriminately tagged as the "poor defenceless addict" to frame the government. "It doesn't have to be true, it just needs to look like that." Gasp, NYT, you didn't know that too? The queen bee operates right there where you are.
Lastly, you didn't report, wittingly or unwittingly, that almost a million have voluntarily surrendered or were arrested, and that they're alive because it won't fit your syndicated narrative that this government "plays God."
You didn't say that this 6-month old administration is trying to address what it inherited from the previous one that failed to address the drug problem in all its dimensions. Because you don't want to know or just don't know or just plain living a lie?
Who plays God, who decides who to live or die? You're right in its vortex and you don't know? Golly.
Instead of being a hit man for vested interests, why don't you be a good boy and place principles ahead of principals?
