Manufacturing Consent: Pinoy Middle Class & the Consumption of "EDSA" Yellow Propaganda

 Halaw mula sa Mga Tanong Po # 19 na unang nalathala noong Agosto 2011


ANG dahilan kaya kung bakit mas middle class kaysa lower class na naloko sa EDSA 2 power grab ay ang mas malaking ‘consumption’ nila ng propagandang dilaw??? Hindi ba’t napaka.estups ng mga nagpunta doon na naglalayong mapaganda ang Pilipinas subali’t ang niluklok ay ang sinasabing “Most Corrupt President in Philippine History,” ang nagumpisa ng ‘culture of impunity?

Ayon sa Amerikanong linguist, cognitive scientist, pilosopo at aktibista na si Noam Chomsky, ang mga mas mataas ang pinag.aralan ay mas maraming propagandang tinatanggap sa pangkahalatan dahil mas madalas silang magbasa. Chaomsky's 'Manufacturing Consent' theory is essentially saying that (mainstream) media content is structured to restrict the expression of dissenting voices as part of a system of indoctrination under a supposed 'democratic' free press. Nakita ito sa Vietnam War. Sinulat ni Chaomsky:
Even at the peak of opposition to the U.S. war, only a minuscule portion of the intellectuals opposed the war out of principle—on the grounds that aggression is wrong. Most intellectuals came to oppose it well after leading business circles did—on the “pragmatic” grounds that the costs were too high.




Those who were gullible enough to join Edsa 2—at least the conspirators who aimed for nothing but power grab—had no idea that the text brigade was centralized. That the Arroyos themselves bought the anti-Erap tabloids for distribution. That the D._.M. “whistle-blower” Chavit Singson and First Gentle—g and seditious military officers had a BLOODY Plan B in case they were not able to oust Erap without bloodshed.

Those who were gullible enough to join EDSA 2—at least those who were not part of the conspirators who aimed for nothing but power grab—had no idea that the "People Power" 2 power grab was cooked up early enough during Erap’s term. Isa sa mga pagplaplanong ito ang OPLAN EXCELSIS na kasama pa si sinful Cardinal.

Ako ay dating galit kay Erap. Pero nang nag-umpisa na ang Erap Resign Movement at nakita ko ang marami sa mga natutulak nito ay marurumi ay bumaligtad ako. Pwera diyan kay warlord, jueteng lord Singson ay may isang pang gobernardor akong kilala na jueteng lord na eh mmmtay karibal pa. At ang kapatid po o in-law ni Cory noong gobernador ng Tarlac ay nuknukan ng pagiging jueteng lord din. Bakit saksakan ng corrupt  ay magpapatalsik ng corrupt daw samantalang walang dayang hinalal siya (si Erap) ng bayan?


"Legalization" by the Hilarious Court of the Power Grabber

Up to now, the imposed yellow propaganda wrecks havoc on the minds of some of the well-educated Filipinos, expatriates included, who cannot seem to have the common sense to go beyond the framework of imposed information crafted by members of the seditious conspiratorial  clique. They continue to wallow in the sorry state of gullibility-but-prejudice-against-Erap, incredibly buying arguments such as how the EDSA 2 ouster of Estrada is supposedly justified by the 2007 Plunder decision and that the millennium President is deemed resigned based on the "totally test" and that never-before-existing "constructive resignation" ruling is not at all anomalous.

Hello? 1.) Hindi ba makita na ang Plunder na hatol kay Erap ay politically motivated upang maipalabas ang sinasabi nilang "justified" ang power grab: hindi lamang "special court" ang naghatol kung saan pili ang mga umupong huwes kundi ginantipalaan pa ang halos lahat sa mga ito ng posisyon sa Korte Suprema. 2.) Can't they also see how biased and unbecoming of their Supreme Court positions the justices of the hilarious court of Hilario Davide were? Davide not only failed to hold the prosecution in contempt for their walk-out during the Estrada impeachment proceedings but also attended seditious EDSA 2 and proclaimed Arroyo "acting President" BEFORE Erap even stepped down of Malacanang. Davide was also rewarded with two position soon after his retirement--as Senior Presidential Adviser on Electoral Reforms  (tanungin ninyo kung anong sabi niya ukol sa Hello Garci) at pagkatapos, bilang Ambassador/Permanent Representative of the Permanent Mission of the Philippines to the United Nation

Moreoever, that court admitted the previously inadmissible--what should be the HEARSAY evidence--the newspaper-published diary of former Exec. Secretary Edgardo Angara, and amazingly regarded its contents as an "authoritative" look into the 'mind' of Estrada--sans the benefit of expert psychological witness. At ang pinaka-nakakahindik ay ang pag-iimbento nila Davide ng "constructive resignation" na basehan daw para ibigay kay Gloria Arroyo ang upuan ng Pangulo. Dahil hindi naman permanently incapacitated, hindi convicted (condition for removal from office), hindi patay, o hindi nag-resign si Erap para matugunan ang mga itinakdang ng Saligang Batas, nag-imbento ang mga seditious justices ng hanggang ngayon ay hindi maintindihan na "constructive resignation."


 Wala sa Wisyo 

Sa madaling salita, ang katwiran nila sa EDSA 2 power grab ay kung ano-anong teknikalidad at gawa-gawang legalese na galing mismo sa grupo ng magnanakaw ng kapanyarihan at labas sa framework ng batas/konstitusyon. Ito ang pinipilit nilang paniwalaan  ng tao at kung mahina-hina nga naman ang kaisipan eh baka madala sa pinaa.agos ng walang konsensyang media. Wisyo sana ay pairalin rin ng mga "edukadong" ito at hindi maging uto-uto sa ipinalalabas ng magkakakuntsaba na teknikalidad at pagi-imbento ng konsepto para magmukhang tinapakan ang saligang batas.

Sobrang tutok siguro sa DILAW na media na puro propaganda ang alam, kaya nag-utak dilaw, pumunta sa Edsa 2 nang hindi nagiisip, analytically that is. At hanggang ngayon ay hindi maintindihan na ang mga magnanakaw ay siyempre pa pagtatakpan ang kanilang pagnanakaw.

Kaya kung hindi  magiging alisto at dilat sa propaganda ng dilaw na media eh baka mas mainam pa ang estado  ng mas ordinaryong mamamayan na hindi puno ng propaganda ang utak. Sabi nga ni Chaomsky, ang mga ordinaryong mamamayan ay kayang intindihin and mundo. Kailangan lamang ay magsama-sama to go beyond the imposed propaganda, kumilos ayon sa kanilang disenteng interes, at linangin ang isang malayang kaisipan.
