‘Perceived’ corrupt lang si Marcos? Phisgoc-Cayetano engages in historical revisionism
The Philippine Southeast Asian (SEA) Games Organizing Committee (Phisgoc) led by House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano is subtly engaging in historical revisionism through materials distributed during the athletic meet.
Netizen @petratort shared on Twitter a photo of a page from the spectators’ map given to those watching the SEA Games.
The map’s section about the Philippines featured a paragraph which read: “Filipinos are a freedom-loving people, having waged two, peaceful bloodless revolutions against what were perceived as corrupt regimes.”
Aghast at the excerpt, @petratort said: “Since when was Martial Law just perception???”
Phisgoc-Cayetano has yet to comment on the issue.
FYI this is in the “About the Philippines” section of the #SEAgames2019 spectators map.
“Revolutions against what were PERCEIVED as corrupt regimes.”
