Tito Sotto to people who want to veto anti-terror bill: Ganun niyo nalang murahin si PRRD tapos ngayon mananawagan kayo sa kanya?

Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III reminded the critics of President Rodrigo Duterte on how they disrespected the chief executive many times before pleading to him.

In a series of tweets, Sotto slammed the people opposing the anti-terror bill and questioned why they’re now asking something to the President.

“Ganun ganun na lang kung murahin nila si PRRD, ngayon nananawagan sila sa kanya?
@iampinglacson” Sotto tweeted.

“Respect is an important element of personality. Whatever you give to others will return to you, with Profit”. Ganun din sa disrespect! Watch out!” he also said.

Meanwhile, Senator Panfilo Lacson, one of the principal authors of the anti-terror bill said that the critics of the measure already changed their tune and now questioning how the government would implement the measure correctly.

“Many of those opposing the anti-terrorism measure have now shifted their aim to target the implementation. They have mastered the art of argumentation – when you run out of sound reasons to argue, just say: BASTA!” Lacson said.

Sotto agreed with Lacson’s tweet.

“Tama si Ping, nuong hindi umubra mga pintas nila sa laman ng bill dahil wala mga sinasabi nila, sa implementasyon naman ang target. Futuristic? Ano ba talaga?” the senate president said.

Lacson and Sotto actively defended the bill on Twitter, the known stronghold of the Duterte critics.

On June 10, several academic institutions asked President Duterte to veto the anti-terror bill, saying that it could affect the freedom and rights of the students.

Several members of Makabayan bloc, like ACT Teachers Rep. France Castro urged the President to junk the controversial measure.

“We challenge (President Duterte) to veto the anti-terror bill, and to instead address and focus on the pressing needs and concerns of the Filipino people amid the COVID-19 crisis,” Castro said.

Even the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) has joined the call to convince Duterte to veto the anti-terror bill.
