One of the presidential appointees that was eventually rejected by the Commission on Appointments (CA) seems bitter towards President Rodrigo Duterte as though Duterte never brought him to power by assigning him as the Agrarian Secretary.
Social media personality Krizette Laureta Chu asserts that Rafael Mariano quickly changed his views about Duterte and even publicized his intention to join the September 21, 2017 rally against a “pasistant Duterte” after he was removed from his post.
Chu compared Mariano to former Environment Secretary Gina Lopez who continues to support Duterte even if she had been removed from her post by the CA. It seemed Lopez understood that the branches of the government have equal and separate functions and that Duterte cannot magically secure their positions.
In her full post on Facebook, Chu said,
As I’ve always repeated, only 3 people’s appointment in cabinet mattered to me: Gina, Judy, and Paeng.
Now I’m not so sure about Paeng Mariano.
He blames the President for not supporting him because he was rejected by the CA. He says he’ll be joining the rally on Sept 21 “Laban sa pasistang DUTERTE – US regimen.”
Duterte-US regimen are words that do not belong to each other, in the same way that “Leila de Lima-canonization” “Leni Robredo MENSA membership” and “Antonio Trillanes dignity” are words you shouldn’t see in the same sentence.
The CA is made up of people who are also from the minority bloc, by people who are allied with landlords Aquino, or are landlords themselves, like Sato.
Ngayon kasalanan na naman ni Duterte, and Mariano is so disappointing because, only three weeks ago, he was working for the “rehimeng US-Duterte.”
So bale for one entire year, hindi rehimeng US Duterte Ang pinagtrabahuan ninyo? So bale one month ago nagbago ng polisiya si Duterte? Either that or, sa pagmamahal mo sa puwesto, tiniis mo mag trabaho sa ilalim ng isang rehimeng kinasusuklaman mo. So what does this make you, Rafael ‘Ka Paeng’ Mariano?
Ambilis naman magbago ng pananaw mo, Ka Paeng, hindi ka lang na bigyan ng seat sa gobyerno.
And he we are charging people like the hated Mocha or any supporter na ang habol Lang Kay Duterte eh, trabaho sa gobyerno, when it’s people like Mariano who exhibit this predilection. Duterte did not need the Left to win, but he was an inclusive President. His Left leanings even hurt Duterte more than helped him during the campaign! There were people who didn’t like him for his “communism,” and it was one of the major issues thrown against him.
Tapos they will say kasi they’re Leftist kaya hindi ina approve.
Kumusta naman si Gina Lopez? That woman never said anything bad about the President. She understood that the very reason the co equal branches of the government exist is that other people should be able to veto the President.
(In other news, I was so disappointed when Mark Villar became DPWH SEC., and now he is one of the best performing secretaries under this government. And he listens too. Kaya lang, Secretary, paki ayos naman ng sistema. I am aware that there are congressmen or governors or government officials who still accept kickback from contractors kaya puro substandard ang gawa sa karamihan ng infra sa probinsya. Paano niyo ba maaayos ito? Kasi it still happens.)
So back to Ka Paeng. What a bitter man you have allowed yourself to become. Buti na lang hindi ka na confirm if ganito ka mag isip.
