Nakakasuka na! Lagman calls for halt to political BS as country grapples with Davao blast

0

Former Albay 1st district Rep. Grex Lagman has officially had enough of distasteful political talk, especially in the light of the recent “Black Friday” bombing in Davao City.

“Pag buhay na ng mga inosenteng tao ang kinitil ng terorista, pwede ba isang-tabi muna ang pulitika? Sawang-sawa na ako sa mga mabababaw na pag-iisip at diskurso from both sides of the political fence,” Lagman said in a Facebook rant Saturday (September 3).

Fourteen people lost their lives in the bombing, which based on indications was a terrorist attack by the Sulu-based Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG).

Lagman took exception in particular to people expressing “joy” over the incident for their own twisted reasons.

“Meron pang ibang mga gago’t ulol na natutuwa pa at nangyari ito sa hometown ni Digong. Para mapahiya daw ang presidente. Eh kung mahal mo sa buhay ang naging biktima?” he said.

As a parting plea, Lagman urged Filipinos to offer help instead of taking part in the political bickering.

“Utang na loob, huwag na po natin i-politicize ito at tumulong na lang. I hope this lawlessness does not escalate. Para sa bansa, para sa katahimikan at kaayusan.”
