Imee Marcos tells martial law critics to shut up: Puro reklamo, wala namang maipayo!

Those critical of President Rodrigo Duterte’s declaration of martial law in Mindanao should just shut up if they cannot offer solutions to the ongoing conflict in Marawi City, Ilocos Norte governor Imee Marcos said.

In her May 26 column for Bulgar, the daughter of the late strongman Ferdinand Marcos said critics of martial law are not helping ease the tense situation in Marawi City by speaking out against Duterte’s declaration.

“Kung wala rin naman sigurong mako-contribute na solusyon sa nangyayaring problema, aba, maganda sigurong itikom na lang ang bibig at magdasal,” she said.

Marcos remarked in jest that Duterte and his officials would’ve already died due to the amount of negative feedback on martial law.

“Kung nakamamatay lang din ang kanilang reaksyon, tegi na for sure si P-Digong at kanyang mga tauhan at baka naubos na rin ang mga opisyal ng armed forces,” she said.

The elder Marcos was famous for declaring martial law nationwide in 1972. Civil rights were suspended and military rule was imposed in the declaration issued under Proclamation 1081.

Martial law under the late President Marcos was considered as one of the darkest moments in Philippine history, with several abuses committed by the military and the police, and reports about thousands of Filipinos being tortured and killed.

    This lady has not realized yet the perils of Martial Law created and left by her father’s regime until at present. She has not recognized yet that ML killed democracy and paved the way for her family’s stay in power for over 20 years. What happened to the Philippine economy in your family’s rule of 20 years? You bankrupted the country, enriched yourselves and your cronies and buried the country in debt from $600 million to $28 billion that keeps Philippine economy limping until today. And did it solve the peace and order problem in Mindanao after?

    Fine. Make noise and bring back the memories of your family’s regime.

    Martial law was the Marcoses & their cronies’ solution to cover-up their corrupt ways.

    Maybe your family can help the poor people in Marawi by returning to the government the country’s wealth stolen by
    your family so that the government can use those funds to
    alleviate poverty in Mindanao!
