Watch the video below.
One netizen shared on Facebook a video of a news report about Senator Hontiveros donating copies of books tackling what happened during martial law in the Philippines and this is how Marcos loyalists reacted.
"Does she have the permit and approval of the Department of Education and Board of Education to do such. If not, this woman should be reprimanded for distributing books that are intended to corrupt young minds with her distorted beliefs and ideology. She should be expelled from the Senate. In Japan, when a parliamentarian does something like this without consent and permit of the Ministry of Education and Board of Education, he gets axed right away especially with such intention to lie and deceit."
"That's the main purpose of Risa Hontiveros for 6 years, distributing a book!? It's a damning factor where her mind is? She was voted as Senator and NOT an activist! Martial Law was declared due to the impending advancement of the Communists to topple the Philippine government and it has LEGAL basis! They are spreading Communists ideology to the youngster, very alarming! Spotted, an activist in the Senate!"
Enrico Igano Mendoza:
"You can't find any good in such book...you can't find some significant achievement like infrastructures Marcos had constructed during his administration.. All you can find is HATRED!"
"Martial Law is not a mistake it is a good governance in our country just to protect our country from Communism, only those like PIA Hontiveros says its a mistake because she always making mistakes."
"DepEd should act on this matter. Even she is a senator she does not have the authority to spread or give those books to students, much more that kind of books . she is again polluting the minds of our young people regarding wrong information. Here we go again....."
"Buang na yan. No decent, sound mind and senator at that would ever do that. Never heard of a Senator doing this sort in a civilized society."
"I did not vote for this communist , their belief will never allow anything that will uplift the lives of people, they want them to suffer so they can rule! The LP's are nonperformers both in the congress and senate, they are a pain in this admin!"
