So, black propaganda is everywhere and it’s up to us if we will believe it or not.. but again some are ridiculously nuts.
Someone or a group of rabid supporters of one Presidentiable got very very busy. Emails circulated all around, in and outside the Philippines, about a mansion somewhere in Texas owned by Manny Villar. Dripping in extravagance, a set of photos of the mansion with the gaudy interior decor even had this introduction:
” Imagine who would have such taste and live in such opulence. An American billionaire? A Saudi Prince? Louis XIV of France? Savour the pictures, then scroll to the bottom of the page to see who owns this work of art.”
This is what was written at the bottom.
This Mansion is in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA and belongs to:
Senator Manny Villar of the PHILIPPINES
While Filipinos starve, and die because of abject poverty ….and while Sen. Villar brags that he had poor beginnings and he had helped his poor countrymen over and over again… but look now.. he and his family live like this…….his GREED kills his poverty stricken fellow Filipinos . So please consider this seriously in the upcoming elections.
PLEASE send this to everyone you know.
They can send it to everyone they know.
Soon Filipinos around the world will know what this man is doing to the people he wishes to serve if elected President.
But someone at the receiving end of this vicious attack on Villar made sure the assholes were put in place. God bless him for exposing this as a hoax. And he wrote:
I think we should all be shooting out emails esp to Ateneans so they may now realize the kind of black propaganda many Ateneans peddle just to discredit Manny Villar. If they think this is their way to win votes for their candidate Noynoy, they better think again.
In the email sent to several atenean groups, this fellow even cited it is “no wonder Villar’s endorser is Wowowee —same feathers”. I am no big fan of Willie Revillame but I certainly think he earned the money he now enjoys the honest way. It may seem “baduy” to these elitists, but hey, this Wowowee host is undeniably a successful artist who excelled in his craft. Don’t you just find it condescending the way these elitists put down people like Manny and Willie, who succeeded in struggling out of poverty as if it is a sin that these guys did not remain poor?
Our friends in Ateneo, many of whom I find decent , would earn more respect from people like me if they admonish the group or the individuals who peddled this lie. I do not think the priests there taught them a lesson in black propaganda. But they may certainly teach them a lesson now about decency.
