The KKK mentioned here is far from being the acronym of Bonifacio’s revolutionary society Katipunan (Katastaasang, Kagalanggalangang, Katipuanan) when it was founded to gain independence from Spain through revolution.
But just the same, it is still a revolution of sorts in modern setting led by presumptive Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte (DU30) to free the country from the clutches of wicked and unscrupulous politicians and government officials, who, through their example has been the cause of moral decay in many sectors of our society,
That DU30 has his own KKK ( Katropa, Kaeskwela, Kumunista) or casually translated as (Friends, Classmates, Communists) to rely on and help make his administration succeed in attaining the goals he passionately promised the Filipinos people he would do is a much welcomed development, except perhaps for the skeptics. But skeptics the country will always have.
Unlike in Bonifacio’s time where blood compact has to be made to signify loyalty and oneness of their cause and purpose, the people whom DU30 have chosen to fight with him in implementing prospective government programs and policies that will make positive changes for both in the country’s progress and of the people’s quality of life has only the confidence and conviction that only DU30 can make this happen now with finality.
The overwhelming victory that the Filipinos granted DU30 comes from the belief that if Singapore had a Lee Kuan Yew, hopefully DU30 would be it for the Philippines. Both are made of the same political fiber who wants to rule with iron hand in practically the same condition of diverse society with different religious beliefs and ideologies.
I am sure DU30 knows what he doing having been in politics for a long time and holding executive position and what is more important is that he has a clear vision for the country conforming at how the international community is evolving. Never has there been an opportune time such as now for his kind of leadership.
If DU30 therefore finds it convenient, valuable and constructive to appoint close childhood friends and classmates to help him run the government as Cabinet members, let it be and so mote it be.
If it is DU30’s desire to allocate four key Cabinet positions to leftists and communists, why go against it when it his prerogative as president to do so. We can only confront and denounce him later if it won’t work well for him. That is the people’s prerogative, too.
Everything comes at the risk of failure.
But, what is certain is that it is better for DU30 to take some risks in dealing with his KKKs than by dealing and having in his administration bootlickers, ass-kissers, political butterflies and other political parasites that are now trooping and queuing in Davao City to see him and be under his good graces for some appointments and other political accommodations.
No need to name names. You read about them and you see them on national TV. They are simply shameless, disgusting and repulsive individuals.
