    Prominent Lawyer to Leni Robredo: You have been talking too much

    Dear Leni Robredo:

    Post-truth. Look it up. Some people have their sins laid out for all the world to see. You seem to belong to that age where appearances are far more important (hence the almost fetishist love for designer labels). You want to come across as some Cory Aquinoesque figure, the grieving widow, politically naive, but sincere. An icon of justice. But really, you are just someone propped up by a has-been political party weighed down by baggage of their excesses.

    While you do share characteristics of Cory Aquino, in the sense that you do not wish a further investigation into your husband's death, it seems to me you are more Imelda Marcos who allegedly suppressed unauthorized biographies that detailed her impoverished past. Strange how you share the same sort of proclivity with a woman you are supposed to revile (party politics and all that).

    Let me tell you some hard facts. That the hate that comes in response to anti-Leni posts is nothing I've seen (and I've seen a lot). It forces closure of FB accounts, comes with trolls (hey! your war can be declared in your own backyard!) with vicious cutting statements and fake accounts. Yes, I am telling you this out of personal experience. That you would mouth off statements about "dissent" and clamp down on negative comments and be silently complicit on the taking down of accounts, makes us wonder about your ability to internalize your own alleged public advocacies.

    Post-truth. For you, PR is vital in establishing and maintaining an image that exists only in the most rabid yellow head. It has nothing to do with facts.
    I don't know about you, but you have been taking too much of the Kool Aid, believing in your own press releases. And wanting only good things about you to come out. In that sense, you are no Cory Aquino, you're more Imelda Marcos.

    Truth, apparently is not relevant for you. It would be fairly easy to deny the allegations of We are Collective. But you haven't. Opting instead to concentrate on suppressing these voices in -- of all places, the last bastion of free speech -- the internet.
