Sotto's idiocy just dipped an all-time low. After making his turno en contra speech at the Senate regarding the Reproductive Health bill and being criticized by netizens after it surfaced that majority of his speech contained misrepresented claims neither backed by legitimate statistics and studies of science using words that were clearly NOT his, Sen. Sotto now claims to be the first victim of cyber-bullying. It seems that our good ol' senator just doesn't understand what "bullying" means and in what context it applies.
Coupled with his arrogant attitude, instead of admitting his wrong or JUST KEEPING MUM after he's already been exposed, he continues to spew bullshit non-stop.
With him still being in-power now he is using his position to try and curtail free speech. The blogging and internet technology age has now ushered in a new type of social awareness unseen and unprecedented. Information is literally just a type away. With that said, many people who do idiotic things, make stupid claims, and try to present unsupported facts are now being exposed in just a matter of minutes. The beauty of this lies in the fact that now people can communicate faster and have the option to look at other sources of information that seemed to be inaccessible in the past.
This worries the old and traditional politicians because the task of spoon-feeding people with bullshit has gotten to be harder. Armed with knowledge, the people are not so gullible anymore.
Here's a good suggestion senator, instead of proposing an ANTI-BLOGGING law why not push for an anti-plagiarism law and while you are at it how about developing a good code of conduct and ethics too?
It might actually do you good because then you'll at least put more effort in making your speeches perhaps?
Another aging Senator who supports Sotto regarding the bill also demonstrate his senility by agreeing with him. Really, people who don't know how the internet works should not make rules for it.
Leave the internet alone you fuckwits!
For shame Sotto. For shame! And this goes for you too Enrile.
Sotto proposing ANTI-BLOGGING LAW!
