Anti-Americanism rising in the Philippines

Post by The Professor » May 21st, 2013, 8:24 am

We rescued them from imperial Japan, which did horrible things to them and other Asian nations. We give them hundreds of millions of dollars in aid per year. How do they thank us?

Yeah, filipina women LOVE white guys and Americans alright. :roll:

That's why I'm against the United States giving foreign aid to foreign countries around the world (including Israel and South Korea). Also, why do we have over 900 overseas military bases around the world?...Stop intervening in foreign conflicts and save money that way....

This looks like something Odbo would post, wasn't he just banned?

Anyway, this is the kind BS that happens in Luzon. Just head straight to Cebu and you'll be fine.

And what about the 400,000 or so Philipinos we slaughtered wholesale back in the 19th century during the Spanish American War? It was like a massive turkey shoot -- one of the most brutal military occupations in history. I'm surprised there hasn't been extreme blowback for that long before this. The preeminent American thinker of the time, William James, summed it up rather succinctly: "God damn the United States."

This has been going on since the country got its independence in the 1940ies- some 5-30 people-paid by some leftist organization to protest at the US Embassy. Yawn!

Right now, the anti-feeling is the Chinese one.

Largely not taught at Philippine schools. You need to be a researcher to dig into it. Most Pinoys are too busy with Facebook.

Americans became good guys after WWII when Filipinos and Americans made up and became allies and bff's.

The biggest issue that filipinos may have is that the VFA agreement is very one sided

the u.s regime didnt "rescue" the filipines for the sake of "rescuing" them. the reason why the u.s regime "resecued" the filipines was so the u.s regime could make the filipines a pupet colony. thats it.

they're right, a country with almost 100 million people should not be kept by the balls forever from such a small US army contingent.

and it's not also protecting them from an economic takeover by china.
the whole of SE asia is being squeezed by china little by little and nobody gives a shit, even in taiwan many would be happy to rejoin the mainland but they can't due to the alliance with the US.

The poster is an ignoramus. Of course, in a country of 100 million, you can manage
to find a few leftist protestors and take their photos. You can live in the Philippines for years
and never meet such a person. Some years back, a similar group wanted to protest a visit
by the US Army Corp of Engineers to Zamboanga. The group had to be flown in from Manila
as no locals could be found apparently. As they made their way to the plaza, they had to
be protected from the locals by the police, who threw rocks and garbage at them.
And how did they pay their airfares? Turned out it was a Chinese government funded organization.
During the following months, the Engineers completed farm to market roads and piers
that had languished for years unfinished at the mercy of corrupt local officials who repeatedly
stole money related to those projects.

The Philippines has legitimate gripes and some bad histories with the US.
Typically, such protestors had little knowledge of such history and instead
are just parroting the latest party blather.

Posters here who think those photos are something they will ever encounter
are badly mislead, which of course, was the intent of the original poster.

There are plenty of hazards in the Philippines. Fending off such protests is not one of them.
The biggest hazard to the Philippines are the Manila elites who continue to pillage the country.
They were strong backers of independence for the Philippines, not for freedom, but to remove
any limitations an American governor might impose on their plans to loot the country.

This is dead on. The Philippines used to be one of the most prosperous countries in Asia. They have a lot of natural resources. However, they have been brainwashed...probably beyond repair. They have been looted by elitists and politicians to the point of severe poverty.

Yeah, they keep saying that over and over again.

Because it was a US territory and not an independent country. So, for a while, it rode the fumes of its US past and then it just slid into a morass.

Puerto Rico is now one of the richest "countries" in Latin America if not the richest. But who are you fooling? It's US territory.
They have a lot of natural resources. However, they have been brainwashed...probably beyond repair. They have been looted by elitists and politicians to the point of severe poverty.
And many expats want it to be that way. After all, if you are a bald and paunchy 55 year old ( my future) who wants to land a 22 year old model quality GF, and you have a pension of $1200 a month, you don't go to Singapore, Japan or Malaysia looking for one, do you? They'll just laugh you out of the country.

You go where you become the last great hope on Earth for such a girl. Heck, I knew one dude who was 70 and he was living off of his reverse mortgage in Virginia and some social security. He'd manage to fly to Mindanao and gallivant with 20 year old cuties.

Such people say" Stay poor Philippines, stay corrupt, stay hopeless. Stay inefficient. All the more girls for me!"

Bwahahahahahahaha!

Loot and then...many put money in US banks and also, buy condos, businesses...in the US!

I mean, at least spend the pesos in PH - that will help the economy. But no, they take it and spend it in the US of all places- not very imaginative.

Would venture a guess that most in the U.S. agree w/ you. The U.S. is just the military arm of the evil world empire, a fall guy if you will. The vatican city is the spiritual oppressor, while the city of London is the financial oppressor. The U.S. is the army not for the U.S., but this 'cabal'.

If all 3 of those locations fell off the face of the earth (D.C. being the 3rd); the world would improve tremendously. Israe-hell could join them. But I would guess there are oppressed there that agree w/ what we say as well...
