An anti-Noy voter pulled me aside the other day and expressed her worry about the Yellow Army.
She said: “Aren’t you worried that it seems so many people are pro-Noy? Surely, you have seen all the yellow ribbons, yellow ribbon stickers, yellow shirts and all the positive news items on the Inquirer and ABS-CBN!”
I smiled and nodded my head.
“What are you smiling about?!” she said, obviously getting mildly irritated.
I led her to the window of our building. We could see the cars whizzing (or rather, crawling) in the street below us.
“See that taxi with the yellow ribbon?”
“Yes,” she replied, perplexed where I was going with this.
“That taxi CANNOT VOTE.”
I continued: “See that big bus with the faces of Noy and Mar? That bus CANNOT VOTE as well.”
That’s what we all should remember.
This is war — a war that the yellows are trying to fight with lies and false impressions.
When you see workers at Araneta Center sporting yellow baller bands, it doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll all be voting for Noy (or even Mar). When you feel down with the shameless partisanship of the Philippine Daily Inquirer and ABS-CBN for Noy and Mar, cheer up with the thought that these organizations — even if everyone of their employees are required to vote for the mama’s boys — are way outnumbered by the rest of us.
But in fairness, I know for a fact that a lot of ABS-CBN employees are not voting yellow and are royally turned off by the station’s less-that-subtle support for Ngoyngoy. Same thing with PDI.
Speaking of yellow, have you guys seen the gigantic yellow ribbon atop that Araneta Center building that you can see from EDSA? It reminds us of our big enemy and how these oligarchs and hacienderos want to dupe us again. Well, every time you see that big-ass yellow ribbon, remember the blood that smears it — the massacre victims, those killed after that massacre, and those that were silenced because they dared to speak up.
THINK ABOUT THIS: NO ONE AMONG THE CANDIDATES HAS BLOOD IN HIS HANDS. Only Noy.
