MILITANT GROUPS TO JOIN AQUINO’S ‘YELLOW RIBBON’ CALL FOR SUPPORT

BY ROGER M. BALANZA

Militant anti-Aquino forces are responding to President Benigno Aquino’s call on supporters to wear yellow ribbons as the embattled President’s ratings dipped down amidst controversies.

And they are coming up with their own version of a yellow ribbon in a design sarcastically connoting dung.

Yellow was the color of anti-Marcos groups, and was associated with  the late president Corazon C. Aquino and her husband the assassinated Senator Benigno Aquino, the President’s parents.

Aquino made the call as a tsunami of negative public comments swirled around his defense of his use of the billion-peso Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) which has been declared as unconstitutional by the Supreme Court.

Aquino made the call on Tuesday during his speech at the Daylight Dialogue at Malacañang’s Rizal Hall attended by World Bank president Jim Yong Kim.

Asked by the press after the dialog how he wished his supporters would express support to his administration, Aquino said he will ask his “bosses” to wear a yellow ribbon.

Beware: This video is propaganda for Sen. Bongbong Marcos in whose veins run the blood of his dictator-father Ferdinand Marcos, and who dreams of running for president on 2016.
