Binalikan ng netizens at ilang showbiz personalities na sumusuporta kay Rodrigo Duterte si Gab Valenciano matapos nitong batikusin ang alkalde ng Davao City tungkol sa moralidad.
Dapat daw nag-isip muna ang US-based dancer/musician bago ito nagpakawala ng maaanghang na salita laban sa PDP-Laban presidential candidate.
Sa isang open letter na kumalat sa Facebook kahapon, December 9, inungkat ang mga diumano'y kapintasan ng pamilya ni Gab.
Saad sa nasabing open letter: “Your own father had a girlfriend and at 19 years of age, he got another girl pregnant whilst still in another relationship.
“That other girl is your mom. His girlfriend was Felichi Pangilinan, your mom’s younger sister.
"So stop talking about womanizing, values, morality, and loyalty when your own parents did not exactly do the right thing either.”
Dagdag pa rito, bakit hindi raw batikusin ni Gab ang kanyang mga magulang sa mga nagawa nitong kamalian dati.
Pinuntirya rin sa nasabing open letter na si Gab ay produkto diumano ng naturang kamalian.
“How come you never condemned your parents? And by the way, that child who was conceived out of indiscretion is you (not that it’s your fault.)
“I am not supporting any candidate nor am I condoning infidelity but look within your own family before becoming too opinionated and judgmental about someone else’s life.
"This is not about politics. Don’t tackle an issue that once hounded your own family. Yours is not perfect either.
“By the way, I like Gary V because he is a good singer and not because he was a womanizer.
“A lot of people support and admire Gary because of his talent. They did not judge his faults. Look the story up on Google and on YouTube (Angeli and Felichi opened up about it on the 700 Club show)."
MOCHA USON REACTS. Ang singer na si Mocha Uson at ang kanyang grupong Mocha Girls ay masugid na Duterte supporters, kaya naman agad din itong naghayag ng pagkadismaya sa Facebook post ni Gab.
Sa pamamagitan ng Facebook, tinuligsa ni Mocha ang pagiging concern ni Gab sa Pilipinas gayong wala naman daw ito sa bansa.
Ipinagdiinan ng singer-performer na aanhin ng bayan ang isang moralistang lider kung hindi naman nito kayang lipulin ang mga masasamang loob sa lipunan.
Narito ang buong post ni Mocha:
"MORALIST OR PRESIDENT?
(My reaction to Gab Valenciano's FB post )
"Many anti-Duterte focus on the issue of morality. But the real question is - do we need a good role model or a capable President?
"Simple lang naman po ito, our country is so sick and we need a good doctor to help us.
"And here come the moralists questioning the doctor's righteousness and morality?
"Shouldn't we be more concerned about the doctor's experience and capability to treat disease and illness?
"Now do you get my point? If you want a morally "righteous" leader then let's vote for the priests and the religious people.
"Now how do you catch drug pushers? How do you pursue corrupt policemen and politicians? How do you put an end to the LAGLAG BALA syndicate? Call the priests?
"Morality should not be the deciding factor in choosing our next president.
"MORAL STANDARDS mean different things to different people according to their belief. What is morally right to you might be morally wrong to me, and what is morally wrong to you might be morally right to me.
”Mr. GAB VALENCIANO, I remember you posted a few months ago on your FB that you "don't owe it (Philippines) a thing" and now here you are tweeting your sentiments toward our country - "how socially uneducated the country has become. What has happened to my fellow countrymen? It’s so sad". (@gabvalenciano twitter)
“Wala ka namang alam sa tunay na kalagayan ng mga Pilipino because you were born with a silver spoon in your mouth and you are not even here.
“You don't know what's really happening in our streets. Our country is radically ill and we need a radical leader to create radical change.
“We need a leader who's willing to sacrfice himself for the sake of his country.
"Eto ang tanong, ano ba ang kailangan natin MORALISTA O PRESIDENTE?
"I do not care if I burn in hell for as long as the people I serve live in paradise" - Davao City Mayor Rody Duterte.
MORALITY ACCORDING TO MYSTICA. Samantala, nag-react din ang singer na si Mystica tungkol sa nasabing post ni Gab.
Sa kanyang Facebook post kahapon, sinabi nitong hindi alam ni Gab ang kanyang mga pinagsasabi.
Kahit daw nanggaling si Gab sa isang religious family, hindi nangangahulugang may karapatan na itong mangutya ng isang tao dahil sa moralidad.
Narito ang bahagi ng post si Mystica:
“MY (MYSTICA) REACTION TO GAB VALENCIANO ON FACEBOOK:
"Gab seems to teach us about morality by tagging Duterte as "immoral", but he doesn't know what he's talking about.
“Once you tag a person as immoral, you're talking about someone as a law breaker, trouble maker, rebel, ungodly, sinful, unholy, murderer, sexual pervert or sexually immoral like a womanizer, adulterer, cheater, fornicator, homosexual, prostitute, child molester, sex offender or rapist, slave trader, thief, kidnapper, liar/dishonest, foolish, vile, shameless, curser, alcoholic, drug user/pusher, party/club goers, idol worshipper, sexual dancer, secular music entertainer/patronizer, hater/wild/out ofcontrol, fighter/war freak, mocker, disrespectful, unfaithful, traitor, disloyal, judgemental, arrogant, blasphemer, wicked, hypocrite, pretender, sorcerer, evil, gambler, perjurer or anyone else who perverts the law of God.
“So, with the above-mentioned characters, where would Duterte fall? WOMANIZER AND ADULTERER? Gab also made a remark that Duterte is a MURDERER and a THIEF.
“Gab is known as a child who came from a family with a very religious background, but that doesn't give him an excuse that he never committed any immorality at all. Remember, all Saints came from a dark background with different characters before they became the disciples of God.
“If there is someone who is unfit to lead the country, it is she who has exalted herself above God, our Creator and Savior!
“MY FINAL CONCLUSION:
“SOMEONE WHO UNDERESTIMATES GOD CAN PUT US ALL IN DANGER LIKE A BLIND PERSON WHO CAN'T SEE THE RIGHT PATH BUT TO THE WAY OF DESTRUCTION.
“EVERYONE HAS A RIGHT FOR HIS/HER OWN BELIEF BUT I WOULD NEVER LET AN ARROGANT BLIND PERSON LEAD THIS COUNTRY! I'D RATHER HAVE A PUBLIC SERVANT WHO DOESN'T EXALT HERSELF/HIMSELF BUT SOMEONE WHO IS HUMBLE AND RECOGNIZES WHO THE REAL MASTER IS! SOMEONE WHO DOESN'T KNOW GOD HAS NO LOVE! SO, HOW CAN SHE LOVE ANYONE OR THIS COUNTRY IF SHE HAS NO LOVE BUT ONLY FULL OF HATRED IN HER HEART?"
Sinamahan ni Mystica ng ilang Biblical quotes ang kanyang post na ito.
