LBM prove once again that they lack class by mocking the Sumilao ritual

The LBM always accuses Robredo supporters of being disrespectful but it is them that constantly promotes hate

The loyalists of Bongbong Marcos (LBM) have failed to show class once more after making fun of the Sumilao ritual Vice President Leni Robredo went through.

Robredo on Wednesday was greeted by farmers from the Higaonon tribe in Sumilao, Bukidnon. The presidential candidate’s relationship with the group dates back to 2007 when she and her late husband, then-Naga mayor Jesse Robredo, welcomed them to their city to retrieve their ancestral land from San Miguel Corporation.

Noong una pa man, kasama na namin siya. Hindi na siya iba sa amin.” said Bajekjek Orquillas, one of the farmers Robredo marched with to Malacañang. “Nakilala namin siya bilang abogada, bilang isang kaibigan, bilang parang isang ina,” he added.

Sentro ng Alternatibong Lingap Panligal or Saligan, the nongovernmental organization Robredo was part of, assisted the farmers.

She noted how far the group came from that fight. “Mahaba na talaga ‘yung tinahak natin na landas pero kami na nananood…sa inyo, sobrang proud kami kung nasaan na kayo ngayon,” Robredo said.

She promised to keep on fighting for the farmers and fishermen.

“Ang akin pong promise sa inyo, na patuloy na ipapakipaglaban natin ‘yung karapatan at kabuhayan ng bawat magsasaka saka mangingisda,” she furthered.

The farmers made Robredo go through a ritual that included something on a white plate hovering over her head during the visit. Trolls and critics then made fun of it without knowing its history.

The ritual was made to provide protection and good fortune.

The LBM always accuses Robredo supporters of being disrespectful, but they constantly promote hate.

Robredo’s daughter, Tricia, noted how her mother always made an effort to meet with the farmers at every opportunity she got.

“Si Mama kahit nung naging VP siya, she makes it a point to try and visit the Sumilao farmers tuwing bibisita siya ng Bukidnon. At kapag umuuwi siya sa bahay, laging may baong kuwento at updates tungkol sa kanila. Mas kaibigan at pamilya more than supporters ang turing sa kanila at sa amin, vice versa,” she said.

“Mapa-eleksiyon man o hindi, ‘yung constant presence nila very comforting and very energizing. Taga-yakap at taga-gabay,” added Tricia.

Orquillas said the group would make sure Robredo wins the presidency.


“Naipanalo natin siya noong 2016. Ngayon pa kaya tayo magpapatalo? Kung naipanalo natin si Ma’am noon, ipapanalo natin ngayon sa 2022.”
