Grex Lagman lectures pro-Marcos trolls: Don’t force your dumb arguments on me

Former Albay congressman Grex Lagman was so fed up with the ignorance of his pro-Ferdinand Marcos trolls, he decided to give them a lecture on Facebook.

On this “open letter”, Lagman, son of former House Minority Leader Edcel Lagman, answered head-on the “arguments” of the people who insist upon others that the recent burial of the late dictator at the Libingan ng mga Bayani (LNMB) was justified.

“Mahal kong mga ‘troll’ na adik mag-PM sa akin: Ang pagmo-‘move on’, para sa mga dating mag-jowa; hindi para sa bansang ginahasa,” he wrote.

“Ang mga proyekto o imprastraktura na sa administrasyon ni Marcos tinayo gamit ang buwis ng bayan ay hindi niya pamamay-ari o ng kanyang pamilya. Pamamay-ari ‘to ng taong bayan.”

Lagman then pointed to the November 8 decision of the Supreme Court (SC) which junked the petitions (including one from his father) halting Marcos’s LNMB burial.

It can be recalled that the Marcos family held the actual interment just 10 days later.

“Ang Desisyon ng lahat ng korte, kasama ang Korte Suprema, ay nagiging ‘final and executory’ paglipas lamang ng labing-limang (15) araw.
“And karapatan sa pag-hiling ng TRO o Status Quo Ante Order at sa pag-hain ng Motion for Reconsideration ay pawang mga bahagi ng ‘due process’,” he explained.

Lagman also noted that in the 30 years since Marcos was ousted, he and his family never truly apologized for the atrocities of their regime.

“Walang problema sa pagpapatawad; pero ito’y pinangungunahan ng makatotohanang paghingi ng sorry.
“Kung di mo ito maintindihan, okay lang. Pero huwag mo ipilit sa akin ang kabobohan ng argumento mo. Sorry. Sana makapag-move on ka,” concluded Lagman.
