  • Former senators Estrada and Revilla who are seeking for re-election slammed online bashers.
  • “Memes” on social media labeled the two as thieves.
  • Despite all the issues they are facing, they chose to run for the Senatorial 2019 race and slammed their online critics.

Former senators Jinggoy Estrada and Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. are now facing online critics because of their past record. Recently, they slammed their online critics and continue to clean their names before the public.

The images of the aforementioned senatorial candidates have been tainted due to graft or plunder cases in the pork barrel scam. “Memes” proliferated on social media and labeled the two as thieves.

For the record, Estrada was accused of receiving P183 million in kickbacks form fake projects in connivance with Janet Lim Napoles. Since he was not the “main plunderer” the anti-graft court granted him to bail out. In September 2017, he was out on bail but is still facing trials.

As for Revilla, the actor was accused of stealing P224 million in the discretionary fund while he was still a senator. In December 2018, he was acquitted of plunder but the government prosecutors insisted that Revilla should pay 124.5 million to the government as civil liability along with Napoles and his former staff and an attorney, Richard Cambe, were both found guilty of plunder. Because of the bail, he has his temporary liberty but is still facing 16 counts of graft cases.

Amidst all the issues they still chose to run for the senatorial race in this year’s elections (2019) and slammed their online critics.

Estrada told the reporters on Hugpong ng Pagbabago’s miting de avance that he was affected by the criticism online, but he also said that those issues are already rehashed.

“I would be a hypocrite if I will tell you I’m not affected by the criticism against me on social media. I am human, too. I also get hurt.”

He added, “These issues are already rehashed.”

He was also asked if online basing had contributed his slide in the surveys and answered: “They won’t stop bashing me. Maybe there are some unscrupulous elements who wanted me out.”

Revilla on the other hand, also said that despite the anti-graft court filed at the Sandiganbayan, he is acquitted from his plunder case, but critics are still at it.

“They won’t stop. Until now they bash me on facebook and continue to hurl hurtful words against me,” he said.

Bong Revilla dancing in campaign ad angers netizens

The elections are coming up and we get to see new faces in different governmental positions. People are making their choices as this is written. Candidates are doing everything they can to win the people’s votes.

From appearing in various places to political advertisements.

One commercial that got the Filipino people riled up is from former senator and actor Bong Revilla.

Revilla has had a successful career in acting, usually portraying the hero.

He decided to pursue a political career and won a seat in the Senate back in 2004 and topped the race in 2010.

But in 2014, there was a warrant of arrest issyed against  him, and he surrendered before the anti-graft court immediately; due to his involvement in the Napoles pork barrel scam.

He was acquitted of plunder and was released in late 2018. His name has been stained ever since.

His political advertisement basically shows him dancing with the ‘Budots song’ in the background. Of course, netizens had a lot to say about this. Lolita Go, a netizen, posted on Facebook how she felt about all this.

She says, “Bong Revilla’s newest political ad sums up how fucked up we are as a country. It doesn’t even have to say a word. All it has to do is show a plunderer dancing, shaking his hips after being freed as if to mock the justice system and the voting public who will not take offense but will instead dance with it because it’s cute.”

Posted by Lolito Go on Friday, May 3, 2019

She even says that her son finds the ad to be ‘cute’.

In addition, she is also criticizing her fellow Filipinos for playing a part in allowing this.

“If we allow plunderers to waste our hard-earned taxes with an advertisement that highlights our own foolishness and mocks us while we’re on our knees, I don’t know what else we can allow.

As Marx puts it:
History repeats itself. First as a tragedy, then as a farce.

Voting for people like him already proved to be a tragedy. If we allow tragedies like Bong Revilla to happen every so often, the tragedy is within us.”

She is basically urging people not to vote for Revilla, along with other netizens.

According to the SWS survey, as of May 4, the former senator is doing good at the 5th place. Revilla is number 16 on the senatorial race list.

  • A netizen mocks Bong Revilla in his caption of a photo of them together, alluding to Revilla’s alleged involvement with the pork barrel scam
  • Social media users gave dissenting opinions to Carlos Mañosa Ng II’s post
  • Revilla was acquitted of plunder and released last December but still faces 16 counts of graft presently

A photo of a netizen, smiling together with senatorial candidate Bong Revilla, is making rounds on social media for its controversial caption by mocking the former senator regarding his plunder cases by way of keeping his wallet safe from him.

Wag po kayong mag-alala. Wala naman pong nawala. Mahigpit po pagkakahawak ko sa wallet ko,” wrote netizen Carlos Mañosa Ng II on his Facebook account, alluding to Revilla’s alleged involvement with Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF), or pork barrel, scam.

The actor-politician, along with former senators Juan Ponce Enrile and Jinggoy Estrada, were accused of receiving kickbacks from businesswoman Janet Lim Napoles, in exchange for directing some of their discretionary funds to phony non-government organizations.

During one of the hearings of his plunder case, Revilla denied receiving money from Napoles nor from her colleagues.

The former action star has been detained at the Police Custodial Center in Camp Crame since 2014, but was acquitted of plunder and released on December 7, 2018. Revilla still faces 16 counts of graft presently.

Netizens had dissenting opinions after seeing and reading Ng’s viral-post, which received 24 thousand reactions online.

On the one hand, social media users stood by Ng’s side, commending his mockery of the former senator while on the other hand, netizens pointed out how Ng had been disrespectful of Revilla and how his “joke” fell flat on them.

Pinoy nga naman ninakawan na pinagtatanggol pa. Sa cine (mo) ka nalang malupit Bong Revilla, mandarambong,” commented Wilfred Noel Manuel.

“Double check mo, malupit mag magic yan guilty na mapawalang sala pa sa tulong in Poong Nazeraan,” replied Jemar Cruz.

Nagpa-picture ka para lang siraan si Bong, very wrong lodi haha,” reproached netizen Jules Almonicar.

Plastik mo naman. Nakangiti kapa (diyan) ha, tapos magsasabi ka ng ganyan? wtf,” said Janine Espeleta.

Social media mishap? Lani Mercado allegedly ‘liked’ Bong Revilla’s ‘magnanakaw’ tarp

  • Mayor Lani Mercado accidentally ‘liked’ a tweet criticizing her husband for being a ‘thief’
  • A viral tweet from a parody account posted a photo of Bong Revilla’s campaign ad, with ‘magnanakaw’ plastered on the tarpaulin
  • The senatorial candidate is still facing separate graft cases, despite being acquitted of plunder charges

A Twitter parody account, centering on Philippine politics, posted on Wednesday a photo of Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr.’s campaign ad with a “correction”—the word “magnanakaw” plastered on the tarpaulin, which piqued the attention of Twitter users, even that of the senatorial candidate’s wife.

The account, Malacañang Events and Catering Services, recently posted a follow-up tweet showing an alleged screenshot of Lani Mercado-Revilla’s Twitter page, where the “Likes” section displayed that she has “liked” the tweet that the parody account posted of her husband.

The actress-politician currently serving as Mayor of Bacoor has denied this, saying that “I didn’t approve this. Fake news…”

Because of that, the original poster has called her a “denial queen,” with one netizen accusing the mayor that she is the same as her husband Bong – already caught in the act but still lying their way through it.

It may be noted that Bong Revilla is still facing separate Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) graft cases despite being acquitted last year of the crime, in relation to the pork barrel scam case.

Court acquits Bong Revilla; asks him to return P124.5 Million funds

Court acquits Bong Revilla; asks him to return P124.5 Million funds

[mashshare]
  • Bong Revilla was ordered to return Php124.5 Million to the national treasury.
  • He was acquitted after being charged and arrested for plunder in 2014.

Sandiganbayan has acquitted former senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. of plunder.

The court, however, convicted his right-hand-man Richard Cambe and his alleged co-conspirator Janet Lim Napoles. It was said that the prosecution failed to prove that Revilla is guilty of working with Cambe and Napoles to pocket more than $4 million worth of his pork barrel funds.

But the former Senator won’t be excluded from the case right away as he was ordered to return the amount $2.3 million, or P124.5 million, to the national treasury.

Revilla also has graft charges but with the resolution of his case, he was allowed to post bail and be released from detention. This is part of a larger pork barrel scam involving other former senators and congressmen, who were said to have taken a total of $189 million.

The actor-turned-politician, along with former Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile and senator Jinggoy Estrada, were charged and arrested for plunder four years ago.

They are said to be running for the Senate in 2019’s midterm elections.
