Last February 28, 2018, the ruling party PDP-LABAN celebrated its 36th anniversary -- with the China Ambassador to the PH and other China officials on stage.
Yes, why celebrate with officials of the China Communist Party? Ewww. Officials and leaders of the dictatorial, one-party, authoritarian government? That government cannot even allow facebook, youtube, twitter to its own citizens because communists and dictators are highly insecure. Now the buddy-buddy of PH ruling politicians and would-be communists?
Part of the report says,
"The symposium “aimed to introduce ‘Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era’ to the Philippines’ ruling party,”
Introduce Xi Jinping thoughts on socialism and dictatorship to the ruling PH party, wow. Mabuhay komunismo, Mabuhay Xi-Tsino-Dutertismo?
The China Communist Party, is a one-party, zero-opposition, dictatorial, authoritarian party. When the Party Congress voted to remove the term limit of the China President, many of their citizens reacted negatively so state agencies in charge of social media censorship disallowed posts with words or terms like "immortality","1984".
'Immortality,' 'disagree,' 'emigrate,' and 'personality cult' — here's every word and phrase China censored after criticism of Xi Jinping's potentially unending reignTara Francis Chan Mar. 2, 2018, 12:18 AM
Politicians like House Speaker Alvarez and Senate President Koko Pimentel perhaps wouldn't mind having a dictatorial, authoritarian party as their buddy. Little or zero opposition, in political power forever, sino ayaw na politiko doon?
I just hope that the Liberal Party or any new political party can re-assert the classical liberal philosophy: more individual liberty and economic freedom, less state intervention ala socialist-communist govt. Propagate the thoughts of John Locke, Adam Smith, David Ricardo and John Stuart Mill -- NOT Karl Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mao Tse Tung, Xi Jinping.
