And so it is that the Philippines is learning, once again, how insignificant it really is. They’re like that stupid kid on the block that just doesn’t get it…you’re a tiny little nobody, and you should stick to your role, if only out of self-preservation. But they never learn, and they start flapping their mouth, eventually pissing off the one big kid that’s been protecting them all this time.
I’ve been keeping up with the news, as I usually do, and you can’t go anywhere without seeing all this bullshit about the transgender being killed. Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m not one of those jerks who want gays dead or anything. Do what you want, just don’t do it around me. And murder is wrong in any place you go, and murderers should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. I don’t have a problem on those two fronts.
But here’s where the Filipino makes it stupid.
Senators are now clamoring to vacate the Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA) out of fears that “more of these murders of innocent Filipinos will happen”. They’re demanding that, not only this Marine be just handed over to them to face a kangaroo court justice system, but also 4 other Marines, who are now out on other assignments, be flown in immediately for questioning. With all of the other cases of corruption and murder that are sitting on the back shelf for years…even decades…these twits have to move this case NOW NOW NOW! Let’s make the US drop everything to accommodate our sudden need to flex our ego!
What I find hilarious are the simple facts of the matter:
- This transgender was a hooker.
- They were checking into an hourly motel.
- This transgender probably lied to the marine and likely was planning the ole “Sausage Surprise!”
None of these justify the kid being murdered, but the Philippines government, who wants the world to believe that they’re all god-fearing catholics who would never have sex with strangers, isn’t even mentioning that their little transgender was “hookin’ it”.
But on the bigger points, one just has to wonder; Where is all this outrage when China pulls the same crap? Filipinos are constantly being forced to mule drugs against their will, and then caught and put to death by the Chinese government. What does China get? More sad Filipino faces. The Chinese come here and commit crimes, and when they get caught, their government demands them to be returned to China. What do Filipinos do? Hand them back with apologies for taking so long.
But that’s probably because the US was being nice and worked out a deal with the Philippines government and was stupid enough to put it on paper. Now every half baked greedy little Filipino politician is waving it in the air calling for justice, and citing specific passages of the VFA as proof that they can do things THEIR way!
Wasn’t it just a few months ago that all of those senators were reminding everyone that the VFA wasn’t finalized, and that they would be pushing for it to NEVER go through?
Ahh, we know the answer to this one. This is the first part of the plan where they cry like babies and cite laws that aren’t even finalized yet. Part 2 is where they’ll ask for money. I’m sure the family of this gay transgender is already making plans on what car to buy and what house to live in. Maybe the US should just speed up the process and buy them a revo and a concrete hut now, just so we can hear the Philippines government shut up and (hopefully) focus on their own problems for a fucking change.Published in
