Gary Alejano to Panelo: Ikaw ang komunista!
In this politiko’s dictionary, Malacañang is perfectly portraying the dictator and communist.
Magdalo Party-list Rep. Gary Alejano could not stomach how Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo casually dismissed the recommendations given by ex-Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert Del Rosario following the reported ramming and sinking of a Filipino fishing boat caused by a Chinese vessel.
Del Rosario offered his expert advice, drawing from his experience defending the country’s exclusive rights at the West Philippine Sea. He recommended for the Philippine government to now take a “multilateral approach” now that tensions may be escalating.
But Panelo shrugged it off, saying they don’t need any advice as the Duterte administration “knows what to do” and don’t need to be ordered around.
This irked Alejano, who thinks Panelo is too arrogant.
“Any Filipino citizen has the right to demand from his govt. A government that does not want its citizens to demand is an authoritarian or communist,” Alejano said.

What a clapback!
