Political Memes A Double-Edged Sword

6:50:00 PM


Its the official last day (yesterday) of the campaign period. As each candidates intensely throw their final blow of convincing the public, there are others who make the intensity a little light with the different memes. Yes, people have found their witty and fun side even in the heat of this year's election.

Naturally, we Filipinos are natural comedians and there is that usual phrase "ang taba ng utak" which means a healthy brain, or on a naughtier meaning a fatty, witty brain. We literally make fun of everything, it is not being bullish, but perhaps it is our coping mechanism in making hard work a little lighter. Experience wise having fun at work makes it a lot faster and lighter. But politically, it has two meanings or purposes.

Political memes are double-edged sword, it may sound funny and witty but its true intension is to promote a political candidate or to defame that political aspirant.

From local to national, we find different political memes some of these are created by supporters and some are simply created by individuals who love a good laugh. Even though these memes provide an avenue for the candidates to get the attention they wanted, as most PR people would say, "good or bad publicity is still publicity."

Now, will these political memes be as sharp as swords in slicing through the consciousness of the voters? Perhaps we can only see it after the final canvassing. So, to us, voters, good luck in making our final decision.

Coco Martin or Cardo Dalisay Openly Supports New Partylist Advocating for Livelihood and the Transport Sector

9:09:00 PM


Famously known action-star today, Coco Martin or on-screen name Cardo Dalisay, is actively making rounds all over as he debuts his endorsement to a new party-list advocating for livelihood and the transport sector, the AP Partylist or #AkoyPilipino on Friday, February 25.

“Anuman ang hirap na ating pinagdadaanan, may kakampi na tayo…” Martin introduced his new party-list group with first nominee Rep. Ronnie Ong in-action in the background in the partylist’s video now circulating online. He continues, “Ang AP Partylist ang tutulong magbigay ng trabaho at kabuhayan sa mga manggagawang Pilipino.”

Rep. Ronnie Ong is Coco Martin’s long-time friend and is nicknamed by PeopleAsia as the “frontliner Congressman.” Ong is known for his various out-of-the-box COVID-19 Bayanihan projects since the first lockdown, such as his #LibrengSakay program for healthworkers, #LibrengGulay program for community kitchens, #LibrengTablets and E-skwela Hub e-learning centers for students and teachers. 

Before the pandemic, Ong also supported senior citizens looking for employment through his Tulong Pangkabuhayan program, deploying various able-bodied and willing-to-work seniors at airports, public universities and government agencies. During the pandemic, he also helped out-of-work transport workers such as UV Express or FX drivers by employing them as #LibrengSakay drivers, as well as some laid-off ABS-CBN employees who found alternative work as contact tracers.


More than just Coco Martin, the all-star cast of Ang Probinsyano forming the famed “Task Force Agila,” has also expressed their support for AP Partylist on their social media pages, sharing the various advocacies of AP Partylist closest to them. “Mula po noong umpisa nakasama na namin si Cong. Ronnie, at kita namin na nagtrabaho talaga siya, naglingkod talaga siya. Kaya ngayon, ang #164 AP Partylist na kasama siya ang sinusuportahan na namin. Sana po ay suportahan niyo rin,” Coco Martin said.

Aside from the endorsement video, AP Partylist also collaborated with OPM artists Bassilyo, Sisa and Smugglaz with their “Ako’y Pilipino,” anthem that sings of the pride, perseverance, and hardwork of Filipinos. They sing, “Ikaw ay magtiwala, magtiwalang may magagawa. Ito na ang panahon, ang tamang pagkakataon, sa bawat daing mo’y magtutugon. Ako’y Pilipinong lumalaban, tumatapang, lalo kung nasusugatan, anumang pagsubok ang daanan, haharapin nang may kagitingan. Itaas mo ang noo, isigaw mo sa buong mundo, ako’y Pilipino.” Both videos are available on Youtube and on AP Party-list’s official social media pages. 

Coco Martin calls on the audience to join him on his new journey with his new partylist, “Dito na tayo sa biyaheng aasenso ang lahat ng Pilipino… AP Partylist #AkoyPilipino, number 164 sa balota.”

This 2022 National Election, What Do You Think of Ping Lacson-Tito Sotto Duo?

4:13:00 PM


Summer has officially ended (I think), seems that the second quarter of the year is about to end, yet, people are already eyeing the names of possible candidates for the National Elections. There were already top 10 names of presidential and vice-presidential candidates spreading around in the webspace. Remember that the Philippines will be having its National Election for President, Vice President, and Senators next year on May 9, 2022.

So, who are the lucky names included in the survey suggested to run for the National Election? Several names were already on the list, Sen. Manny Pacquiao, Mayor Sarah Duterte, Mayor Isko Moreno, Sen. Ping Lacson, Sen. Tito Sotto, and many more. But the Sen. Tito Sotto and Sen. Ping Lacson tandem interestingly poked the curiosity of some critics, especially, after the interview of Karen Davila with Sen. Tito Sotto.

During the interview, Karen asked Sen. Sotto if ever he will run for the National Election, who should he pick as his running mate. Sen. Sotto answers without hesitation, "First of all, I’m still considering it. And if I do consider it, the number one on my list would be Sen. Lacson. I know his capability. I know what he can do for the country.” And Sen. Sotto added, "If he runs for president, I will support him!”

There were positive feedbacks on the possible candidate.

  • “Matalino si Ping, bagay na Presidente.”
  • “Baka si Ping ang iboto ko.Pero tingnan muna natin ang mangyayari.”
  • “Siya ang nakikita ko na totoong may malasakit sa tao at sa bansa natin.”
  • “Malakas noon si Lacson naghati lang sila ni FPJ ng boto kasi di nag-give way ang isa sa kanila.”
  • “Magiging history pag nag-win si Ping. Mahirap kasi sa mga presidentiables na tumakbo before ang manalo pag tumakbo ulit. As far as my knowledge is concern, ‘di pa nangyayari ‘yun sa ‘Pinas.”

Right now, political parties are convening to endorse their official candidate for the coming National Election. It is a long way to go before the election, but it is good to understand and know the potential leaders of the country.

In other news, Sen. Ping Lacson's son Pampi celebrated his birthday together with his children Thirdy (Jodi Sta. Maria's son) and Mimi (Iwa Moto's daughter). Both children sang a birthday song to Pampi with a cake and a gift. A memorable day indeed for him.

When Pampi was asked about the possible tandem of Sen. Tito Sotto and his father Sen. Ping Lacson, he remains quiet about the matter.
