Dispatch from Crame No. 452:
On the continued smear campaign against Sen. Leila M. de Lima


Another disciple of Hitler propagandist Goebbels who advanced the evil principle that a lie repeatedly uttered becomes the truth, Presidential Spokesperson Panelo chimed in, after Bong Go and Mocha Uson, in their drug narrative about me. Panelo was recently quoted referring to me as "criminal in nature". He also insists that I remain incarcerated because the evidence against me is "strong".

No! I remain in jail because that is what Panelo's master, Duterte, wants. Never mind my innocence. Never mind the fake evidence fabricated against me. Never mind the manufactured testimonies of criminal convicts. They don't care about the truth. All they care about is power, flexed through lies, deceptions, and oppression.

Come to think of it, what do we expect from this clown? Like his immediate predecessor, this presidential mouthpiece only parrots what his principal dictates, including slanders. More than being hurt, I am infuriated by the persistent demonization and character assassination I get from these presidential underlings, obviously upon Duterte's orders.

In fact, it is Duterte who is "criminal in nature". What can be more criminal than the murder of thousands of human beings using the state apparatus as an instrument to enforce his policy of summary execution of targeted civilians? This is what the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data project (ACLED) pointed out in its report about the Philippines being fifth among countries with the most number of civilian fatalities, thus making it "one of the deadliest places in the world to be a civilian".

No amount of denials and propaganda from Panelo can hide this plain fact from the rest of the world. Unfortunately for Panelo, the world is not populated by Duterte sycophants like him. The world sees the truth as it is. It would take more than a clown like Panelo to convince it otherwise.
