MANILA — The lead convenor of a group of civic-minded Marcos loyalists has issued an official press statement calling all Filipinos “to unite and support a true loyalist, a friend of the President, Executive Secretary Atty. Vic Rodriguez.”
The following is the group’s unabridged Press Statement:
Loyalty and in support of President BBM’s Unity Plan
Online and in the news recently the disinformation we have come to know as fake news has been spreading, that long-time ally and the face of Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.’s presidential campaign, Executive Secretary Atty. Vic Rodriguez, has resigned from his post.
On July 23, 2022, it could be clearly seen in his face-to-face with the media held in the Office of the Executive Secretary in Malacanang, that this rumor is far from the truth, that he is instead in his usual self, dispensing his regular duties.
We, the Filipino League of Advocates for Good Governance-Maharlika, a group of civic-minded Marcos loyalists, call on all Filipinos to unite and support one of our own, a true loyalist, a diligent worker, a friend to our beloved President, Executive Secretary Atty. Vic Rodriguez.
The recent election has been unprecedented expressed in the overwhelming victory for our President, the first majority president in the recent history of the Philippines. Our President’s mantra is unity and his campaign, “Team Unity” or “UniTeam.”
Through decades, millions of Filipinos have banded and stood together behind the Marcoses and identified themselves as Loyalists. This has been and will always be the trademark for those who serve our President: Loyalty.
Loyalty is fashioned through trials like gold refined through the fire. Despite all the fake news, criticisms, and attacks, we, loyalists, held together and fought back. This election has been our vindication for all our support and for uniting as Loyalists through the years.
However, similar to the tools that were used against our President and the Marcos family, these same tools are being used to break apart our team of loyalists. Since the enemy failed in stopping the Marcos family from returning to Malacanang, the new goal is to remove all Loyalists from power and to surround our President with puppets of the oligarchs, opportunists, and gold diggers.
Let us not be fooled by fake news. Let us bring back integrity in journalism. No one should be asked to answer for “chismis.” There are proper venues like the courts which should be used. We should unite behind one of our own and protect our government from the well-funded machinery of fake news by non-loyalists and fanatics of disunity who only want to possess power.
Executive Secretary Atty. Rodriguez, steered the recent presidential campaign to victory and when many laughed before at his unwavering fight to prove BBM was cheated during his Vice Presidential campaign, this overwhelming victory vindicates him and the Marcos Family.
In Latin there is a saying, “Fides Super Omnia,” which means “Loyalty Above All.” We remain loyal to our fellow loyalists in government in support of our President BBM’s plans for a united country to make our country great again: BBM — “Babangon ang Bayan Muli.”
