Honasan cries foul over Philippine Daily Inquirer editorial

MANILA,  Philippines— Senator Gregorio “Gringo” Honasan cried  foul on  Monday  over a Philippine Daily Inquirer’s (PDI)  editorial, questioning  his  endorsement  by the  so-called  White Vote Movement  led by El Shaddai Bro. Mike Velarde.

Honasan, the  editorial said, should  have been excluded from the initial  list  of senatorial bets  endorsed  by the group based  on  the guidelines issued by the  Catholic  Church for  not voting a particular candidate.

The editorial specifically  referred to the 7th guideline which  states that, “The candidate has been involved or linked to terrorism or the use of goons for self-protection within or outside the campaign period. Peace is the only way to peace.”

“This would have ruled out two more anointed members of the White Vote Six; both Senators Gringo Honasan and Antonio Trillanes IV had taken up arms against the very governmental system they now serve,” the   PDI editorial said.

But  Honasan  questioned  why he was being held accountable  for  his history  based  on what he insinauted as “inaccurate, incomplete or sometimes totally  ridiculous information.”

“I was hoping that there would be some balance in the treatment of issues like why should I be held accountable for my history of participating in apprising with my life as a senator for the last 15 years,” he said in an interview with INQUIRER.net’s editorial team.

“Case in point, I’m being held accountable for seven to nine coup attempts by the Philippine Daily Inquirer. I can claim credit for the ’86, technically a coup attempt—the original plan was to attack Malacañang and in ’87 and ’89 for which I received an amnesty proclamation backed up by a diploma from the Ramos administration.”

“But you know what rankles me… is [that] because some sectors [with] vested selfish interests benefitted in ’86 it was all right then? When we did it for the same, very same reason in

1987 and 89 it was wrong?” he asked.

Compared to the 150 and 300 deaths during the failed coup attempts in 1987 and 1989, respectively, Honasan pointed out that more–-8,000 people— died in the 1991 Ormoc tragedy. He also pointed to the number of children who died of malnutrition because their parents have lost their jobs.

“Have anybody been held accountable? And now I’m being called to task for a decision that laity made about endorsing certain candidates,” he lamented.

Asked if his role in the failed coup attempts during the time of the late President Corazon Aquino could affect his re-election bid next month, Honasan said, “No. It will affect the truth.”

“I mean according one news group, media is supposed to report. And the people decide. It’s not supposed to editorialize on the basis of inaccurate, incomplete or sometimes totally ridiculous information.  That’s what I understand,” he added.

    Nagtaka ka pa Mr. Honasan. You did many things during Martial Law. You also took quite a few human lives during your misadventures and coups. If PDI is questioning you, it’s also because PDI is staunchly Aquino-friendly. In fairness to Gringo, PDI is also hypocritical. PDI has always avoided mentioning the human lives lost in Hacienda Luisita, the futures blighted, the children enslaved. Gringo Honasan has a nice term for it — organized hypocrisy. Gringo and PDI are hypocrites, dapat nagkakaintindihan kayo mga kapwa ipokrito.

      Puputok at tatakbo lang yan. Aside from the original EDSA coup, the latters are just politically motivated. Enrile has planned all coups against Aquino for him to become president of the Philippines and put it under Martial Law again so that he can rule like Marcos. Honasan will not fight to protect and serve the Filipino people but his loyalty only to Enrile.

      And cleaner to Jackie’s killing exploits. Remember the amin soldiers (meaning soldiers who claimed responsibility for the murders of Alfie Anido and the nephew of Fr. Robert Reyes in the guise of self-defense which cases eventually got railroaded) under his command as Enrile Sr.s chief of security at the time? Homasan had something to say about those incidents, but sad to say, he will just compare those incidents to other killings. Other killers will be answerable but not his own involvement.

    It’s not the fault of Honasan is among the White Vote Movement anointeds. Remember what Cardinal Sin said before? He is willing to accept donations from devil himself if this would be used to help the poor. The El Shaddai and the CBCP would support the devil himself if he took the form a congressman or senator and voted against the RH Bill.

  • wakats

    Gringo the putschist cried foul yet he admitted his active participation on the 86′, 87′ and 89′ coups that cost, according to him, only 450 lives. He did not mention the property losses amounting to billions of pesos and the capital outflow that shrunk our economy to its knees.

    The PDI editorial is not based on inaccurate or totally ridiculous information but on official records to inform the public of the kind of man gringo is. FVR should be condemned for imposing a penalty of only 10 push-ups, granting him amnesty and helped him win as senator in 1995.

    A vote for gringo is a vote for coup d’etat……

  • kapayapaan_1900

    Your stint in the senate was very disappointing! Filipinos don’t need a mediocre leadership to lead them in this extraordinary time. I’m tempted to believe what others are saying you’re only good as a poster boy during the ’86 Edsa revolution and as an aide-de-camp to the Enriles..

  • crisostomo_ibarra_the3rd

    Mr. Honasan, there may be 8000 people who died in the tragedy in Ormoc but you cannot compare it with the failed coup what only 300 died. The former was an act of God. The later is an act of humans acting as Gods. Have you even measured the economic fallout of your mutiny? You should remember that there is only one God and you are not the one.

    • superpilipinas

      You missed the point.

      The government failed to curb the illegal logging that caused the tragedy in Ormoc. the deaths were not an act of God. It is the government’s negligence against illegal logging and poor environmental planning.

      • kumilos_tayo

        You missed also the point.. Stupid… ang hirap kasi sayo hindi mo naranasan nung time na yun naginawa niyang coup nag start bumagsak ang pinas bumabangon na tayo nun tanda ko pa na piso pa ang pamasahe nun panahon ni Marcos naibaba ng 50 cents nung ni Cory na ang president wala pang coup… Nang nagsimula siyang mang coup maraming investor ang umalis sa pinas maraming nawalan ng trabaho maraming naghirap dahil sa ginawa niyang walang kwenta.

      • superpilipinas

        he-he-he….napikon na….

        hindi yung coup ang nag-alis sa investors. read the facts and don’t base on perceptions or kwentong barbero. ang nag-alis sa investors ay poor governance which had an impact to business viability. para sa mga big-time investors, local impact at politics lang epekto ng coup.

        Umalis ba ang Intel sa pinas nung nagkaroon ng coup? Kelan umalis ang Intel?….kay Gloria. Kelan umalis ang Ford? …. kay Aquino.

        he-he-he. Anong dahilan tumaas ang pamasahe at bumaba ng husto ang peso?….Oil deregulation at Asian economic crisis.

      • http://www.facebook.com/guillermo.mendoza.3956 Guillermo Mendoza

        You are presenting, stupid views, not-even-half-truth statements!! Intel left during Gloria’s time? yes! but your reasoning that its impact to business viability is laughable!
        What factors lead you to conclude that only “LOCAL IMPACT at POLITICS” lang ang epekto ng coup??? Sabihin mo yan sa mga mukha ng mga batang nawalan ng tatay, sa mga estudyanteng nawalan ng suporta sa pag-aaral nila, etc.!!!

      • gryzyxwoz

        Not

      • crisostomo_ibarra_the3rd

        The illegal loggers are faceless while the coup plotters were identified. The thousands of victims in Davao and the economic dislocation, would that be illegal logging too? Would that we comparable to the economic hardship caused by Honasan’s mindless coups? Nag coup coup then nagtatatakbong tumakas. Walang paninindigan. I admire Trillanes and his magdalo group. They had a coup and they stood by it till the end. Hindi tumakas at nagtago.

      • superpilipinas

        Whether it is related to the economy or disaster, government plays a major responsibility. Keep that in mind. As the saying goes “don’t blame it on the rain”. And keep your mind open. Ormoc and illegal logging are only examples. There are more like smuggling and corruption that impacts the poor. Some people do things, one way or another, and some people just “blame it on the rain”.

      • crisostomo_ibarra_the3rd

        Of course economy or disaster, the government has a role to play. But the point is Honasan is trying to deflect the issue of his coup plotting by being defensive. He is justifying his coup plotting ways by bringing up issues of government responsibility. He is saying why blame coup plotting when only 150 or 300 people died. He is saying ok for the economy to suffer and only 150/300 died, 8000 people in Ormoc died anyway. Anong kalokohan yun? He should simply accept the fact that 300 people died and the economy devastated by his grandeur plan to wrestle power. Plain and simply power grab.

      • superpilipinas

        Ah…but the point of the article is not the deflection..that’s where you missed.

        the point is balanced reporting. Inquirer looks at the negative to undermine the candidate…he-he-he…but turns a blind eye about the positive points if it does not like the person to win.

        just say you don’t want him to win. and i know that’s your point.

        i don’t want him to win too.. not because of those coups but because he has become a traditional politician. but his point that Inquirer has become biased and unbalanced is undeniable.

        I’m not pro-Team PNoy nor pro-UNA but it is obvious that Inquirer is for Team PNoy. Like Manila Bulletin was for Marcos.

      • http://www.facebook.com/guillermo.mendoza.3956 Guillermo Mendoza

        If your reasoning for not voting for him because he became a traditional politician and forget the “coups” that he had caused, then I hope that your father was not a casualty or any of your relatives!!, for that matter.
        Now if you think Inquirer is getting biased. then why read? Remember this is editorial, the editor needs to give his opinion. Will he be biased, of course he will!! He is supposed to make a stand and share his opinion. Balanced news, FEARLESS VIEWS!
        I suggest you go read Olivares’ paper instead!!

    Inquirer has become that evil that it used to fight. Inquirer with Aquino has become the Manila Bulletin of the Marcos Era.

    In the Marcos Era, people lost hope and thought that powerful Marcos and giant Manila Bulletin will be there forever. inquirer has not learned this lesson. Now it is fighting the Catholic Church too.

    A newspaper will come out and simply replace Inquirer since people are now seeing the bias and patronage politics that it plays with the Aquino government.

    It’s ridiculous how Honasan can compare the children who died of malnutrition from the people who died from the barrel of their guns, and yet he can’t see that he is guilty in creating both cases. During his so many failed coup attempts people have died and the economy collapsed resulting in jobs lost and children dying from malnutrition. Honasan is MORE ACCOUNTABLE than he think he is.

    Honasan is one of the reason why our economy is near the bottom. His selfish interest and his boss Kawatan Enrile to rule this country put the Philippine economy to near destruction.

    And the so-called white vote movement, which is 100% hypocrite, is endorsing this blood-tainted war freak.

    These are the people that are killing our economy by endorsing foolish candidates and pocketing money coming from love offering and donations.

    Honasan and Enrile tried and failed to establish and lead a Military Junta in the Philippines. Their selfish acts is the major reason why our country is poor right now.

  • ruben_bush

    Well, aside from that, he should also be held accountable for the killings of Labor leader Rolando Olalia and his companion driver Alay-ay. He was also involved in the assasination of student leader Leandro Alejandro. There’s too much blood in his hands!!!

  • Eddie AAA Calderon

    Again the government is as good as the majority of the voters who put their officials into elected offices. We have seen candidates winning elected offices even though they have received not so many rave reviews. But the majority of the voters decide to put them in power. And the majority of the voters will continue complaining of what is going on in the government.

  • donitski marvelous

    people, please. never vote those candidates endorsed by that shrewed businessman mike velarde. god knows how much was his take in this.

  • Handiong_Haringmakabayan

    So, you’re telling us that 300 deaths, victims of your misadventures, are worth less than the 8,000 victims of the Ormoc tragedy and that your political aspiration’s head shouldn’t roll since the alleged culprits of the tragedy are roaming free. What kind of… thinks like that?

    Well Senator Gringo, you cannot blame PDI for what they honestly know about you. If you recall, the free Press fell during the Marcos regime and survived it only to be threatened by your military adventurisms later. The editorial has a point. Admit it, apologize again, move on, and go back to work.

    just one question Amo Boss Colonel Rambo Senator Sir, is there any REFORMED in the armed forces since you became a senator? maybe your mistah Gen. Garcia will answer this for you?

  • Concur_Dissent

    Honasan as usual is trying to change history (but in vain) about his role as a fake hero… He was not a hero of EDSA, he was the hero of Enrile. The 1986 coup was not originally designed to replace marcos with Cory. It was a pure military coup that was accidentally and prematurely hatched. As a result, the putschist were FORCED TO SEEK THE SUPPORT of the Cory opposition that was then enjoying a snow ball effect on their civil disobedience actions. Had not the people flooded the streets of EDSA, Honasan and enrile would have been long gone…

    honasan’s coup ventures (misadventures really) in 87 and 89 only highlighted the fact that he never supported the idea of Cory heading a democracy based government… His AUDACITY was such that he thought (wrongly) that he was the reason of the successful overthrow of marcos…. yuk!

      I concur… It is just sad that honasan was still successful fooling some bloggers here. Honasan misdirected the “weak-of-mind-bloggers’ ” attention away from the topic of his penchant for violence and terrorism to a totally irrelevant topic (ORMOC)….

    • superpilipinas

      Who conducted the military operations for Ramos and Enrile?

      You know you can check the facts based on Wikileaks revelations of the US government on the 1986 coup. They have no reason of twisting the facts.

      • Concur_Dissent

        there was no operation to conduct! The only “operation” that honasan did was physically guard enrile while crossing edsa to crame. They were cornered like mice in aguinaldo/crame surrounded by cory and sin’s people power! No need for wikileaks if you were in edsa like me! BTW, wikileaks info are not facts but rather comments of people as they see it and not neccessarily bible…

      • Simplify1

        were you at EDSA at that time or in malacanang defending your beloved master dictator marcos? The only military operations that your honasan idol did were in 87 and 89 and in case you don’t remember, all honasan operations failed miserably…

    Honasan is running scared… he knows that the pinoy voters are getting sophisticated every year… intelligent bloggers have been flooding all online newspapers and equally intelligent blogger-readers are starting to see and being able to separate the wheat from the chaff….

  • inquirercet

    bringing up the ormoc tragedy is a moving the goalpost fallacy mr. honasan. you are to blame for your actions that held back the philippine economic recovery. do you think poor economic conditions have nothing to do with malnutrition deaths or pushing people to illegal logging? shame on you.

    This honasan learned a at the feet of the 2nd worst prevaricator (marcos taking top spot) in the Philippines, enrile. Small wonder he is adept at half-truths and embellished lies, all for the good of his self interests.

  • lennonpaul

    my goodness..he is comparing his coup with nature`s work!

  • nakawan

    What rankles me is how incredibly stupid Gregorio Honasan really is. Does he really expect people to believe that after his coup attempts in the 90s he had no hand in the mutinies that followed in the 2000s? This guy had to flee the country several times– as a Senator of the Philippines– just to escape questioning from the authorities. If that isn’t a sign of guilt I don’t know what is. This guy is as much a hero as Ping Lacson was an anti-gun advocate. DO NOT VOTE HONASAN IN 2013.

  • siegfeil

    I don’t understand why this killer landed in the senate. Grabe talaga ang effect nang pa pogi macho sa mga mang mang na botante. Yang kay Velarde kulto yan. siguro pagsinabi niyang uminom nang lason ang followers niya gagawin nila yan katulad ni Rev.

  • rightist

    Honasan should apologize for the coup and indemnify all the victims. Then we can consider voting for him. He is correct in saying that those responsible for the flooding should be punished. But it does not absolve him of his own responsibility for the effects of the coup.

    Honasan was an officer of the armed forces, he staged a coup to overthrow the elected government (and not only once). That makes him a traitor, maybe a habitual traitor. I would not trust him to guard my dog (if i had any dog).

  • superpilipinas

    I agree with the Senator about unbalanced reporting of PDI.

    I’m not pro-Honasan. But it is becoming more obvious that PDI has become partisan. It does not tell all the facts whether it is negative or positive. It tends to bias in favor of what it desires and omits some key facts …and that is not news reporting anymore.

    It has become the evil that it fought during the Marcos era. Inquirer is to Aquino as Manila Bulletin is to Marcos. And sooner or later, another news source will be more appreciated by the people.

    So far PCIJ is by far the best reputable media agency. Unfortunately, it only does investigative journalism and not daily news reporting.

  • RHumabon

    If one of the seven coups was successful, the Philippines today would still be under a Junta headed by Col. Gaddafi, I mean Col. Honasan. Hundreds died in his attempts at overthrowing the government. The economy suffered in hundreds of billions of pesos in lost business activity, productivity and investments. Foreigners shied from an ustable nation that the numerous coups had projected. . .Booting him out of the senate is the least censure Honasan can hope for, considering the TREASONOUS ACTS he led with the RAM Mutineers against the republic.

  • Ric Atencia

    Religious groups should be involved in winning souls, not endorsing politicians during election. I have yet to see in the Bible, prophets endorsed a political candidate or prince to claim a throne.

    You win souls, not winning votes. That is your mandate.

  • MontyWest

    Wasn’t Enrile, who is Honasan’s benefactor, one of the biggest loggers during the Marcos era? Enrlie even claimed that the logs used for Cayetano’s house came from him. If he was on a mission to attack illegal loggers who caused flooding tragedies, why stage a coup against a legitimately elected government? Why not simply attack those directly involved in the logging? Was he afraid of hurting someone close to him?

    Honasan’s coups were brazen power grabs. I do not remember him advocating anything before launched them, and we certainly had a free press back then where he could have aired his complaints prior to the coups. This is fairly recent history and millions still remember what he did, both the good and the horrible.

  • Beersheva

    “Why should I be held accountable for my history?” That’s your history, who should be responsible for it? Honasan would prefer that Filipinos forget that he was ever involved in coup attempts that caused untold hardships for the nation.

    Media is not supposed to editorialize? Isn’t that what you are supposed to do in an “editorial”?

  • monATmex

    beyond the 300 people that died because of him, consider the economic disaster that this fool caused. my construction company was on t.he verge of a break out year when he launched his coup. our canadian client pulled out as a result. we had to fire more than a hundred employees. multiply that by a thousand and more companies affected and you have an idea what this criminal did

  • Handiong

    There was no reason for Honasan to mount coups in 1987 and 1989 because the government then was not despotic, unlike in 1986. The coups in 1987 and 1989 were mounted to grab power for personal gain that’s why they were wrong and even criminal.

    Comparing deaths brought about natural calamities with deaths caused by man-inflicted violence is ridiculous. The more reason that Honasan should not be reelected.

  • Ibulgarmo Bayan

    Senator Honasan is not correct to compare the two tragedies that happened before. The guidelines only indicate who are candidates that have no liability towards the government and GOD. Once you have taken up arms against the government, it is already a crime most especially when it involves losing of lives. Nevertheless, Senator Honasan could make excuses because people voted for him to become honorable in the congress. That’s why I don’t believe that Filipino voters are now professionals.
