While it is true that Filipinos takes their politics seriously, it does not mean that we don’t know how to laugh either.
The Facebook post of Norl Martinez, a UP graduate, poking fun at his fellow UP alumni who are once again taking their opposition to the streets against a certain government policy, particularly the declaration of Martial Law in Mindanao.
Basically, the author who is based in the US and a UP alumni, criticized UP students marching in the streets protesting Duterte’s imposition of Martial Law in Mindanao but with an surprising twist.

to all my UP friends making ingay out there, don’t be takot! let’s make baka!
here kami in mindanao particularly in davao, despite the martial law, we still have oras to make gala around roxas to make tusok of the fishball that’s making ikot around the kawali.
we even have oras to make kuha of selfies with soldiers and hindi kami scared to roam around.
what i could not make intindi is that may pa-placard pa kayong nalalaman matched with “im with the people of marawi.” why dont you kuha a flight and make your way to marawi and make sabi to the maute group to stop this war? you think they will make rinig of your kaechosan?
your special effects of kilos protesta and kandila lighting skemberlu will not make balik the buhay of the people who were killed and you cannot bring back the edifices na sinunog ng mga maute.
im sure, hanggang bunganga and social media lang kayo when it comes to defending our bayan… like duh! do you know how to make hawak of guns, make it putok, and make it patay the terrorists?
why dont you make sampal these terrorists with your branded bags, make them sagasa with your cars, or better yet, make kagat of them using your breyshesh?
gawan us a favor. make punta of marawi and catch all the bala out there, not you being skeptical of what is happening here because we are totally fine here.
bye, friends. i have to go starbucks na because the driver is already outside the school, making potpot of the car to make sundo of me.
PS: i’m letting you hiram of my tank so that you can defend yourselves when you are out there in marawi.
