Revisiting… the Filipino Freethinkers [Updates and Announcements]

Buti na lang at umalis na ako sa Filipino Freethinkers [Updates and Announcements] na iyan.

Sa totoo lamang po, iyun lang po ang New Year’s Resolution na TALAGANG nadaan ko sa GAWA at hindi sa salita.

The Filipino Freethinkers? Huwag ako bes. Bago pa man dumating ang election peak season, I already LEFT FF FOR GOOD. You know what I’m saying?

Ngayon ko lang nalaman na ang mga elitista doon, panay ang denunciation kay Tatay Digong. Well, what did he do to you?

Revisiting the Filipino Freethinkers [Updates and Announcements]

In fact, Sass Rogando Sasot is opening up about her experience when she used to be in FF group.

Filipino Freethinkers has changed. Hindi na sya gaya dati. I unfollowed. It used to be a really fascinating group even when I did not agree with it all the time. I used to think it was a forum for openminded people. Now they’re just pushing their ideas on everyone. Freethinker, sheesh.

TOTOO IYAN! In fact, many of these active members are IMPOSING their beliefs to people who have an opinion that is completely different from them. Buti pa sa GRP Community, at least, kahit may elitismo din doon, at least people in GRP Community are far more welcoming.

RT said:

Lol who listens to their podcasts? I don’t. Bakit ko sasangin oras ko sa mga conyong nagdidiscuss ng mga irrelevant ideas to our context in the Philippines.

Pansin mo yung FF page panay post about Science, religion and other high-faluting ideas. But never anything about poverty and our OFWs. Akala nila nasa Europe tayo with it’s liberalism.

Finally, have you seen where they hold meet-ups? So very opulent. I can attest, right after their meet-ups they go to the nearest mall and/or Starbucks and polish each other’s knobs.

Malakas ang tindig ng COLONIAL MENTALITY ng mga elitista ng tiga-FF. Basta Western culture, mataas ang tingin nila doon–and they tend to look down on Asian culture.

And, I also agree that they do not talk about the OFWs. Seriously, nakaka-tindig balahibo lamang po. No one will ever discuss about the suffering of the OFWs abroad–and true indeed, they thought that most Filipinos will adopt the European-style of liberalism. Don’t you know that Scandinavia is the European region they look up to?

RT also added:

It’s actually quite telling where they hold their meet ups and what they do afterwards. When I attended one back in 2012, I felt something was off.

Now, with the benefit of hindsight I can put in words what was a bit off. Their meet-ups have this air of feeling elites or altas. Sure there is discussion of ideas but it’s quite telling that afterwards they go to the nearest mall or sosyal place and socialize. As in, for an organization that was founded on enlightening Filipinos it’s quite telling they have the feel of being “sosyal”.

Hay, buti na lang, hindi ako uma-attend ng mga meetups nila. Baka ma-BADTRIP lang ako diyan. Anyways, kung magmi-meetup man lang ako, doon na lang ako sa Divorce Advocates of the Philippines (DAP) o sa mga meetups ng mga fans ni Masato Sakai o ni Aga Muhlach. LOL.

Buti na lang di ako pumunta sa meet ups. It was 2012, they were supposed to be a fascinating group at that time pero ganun na sila. It really annoys me that some of them think they’re intellectually superior to others when some people can’t have a “deep,” “philosophical” conversation with them. Hindi ibig sabihin na “shallow” at “empty-headed” ang isang tao porket hindi nila pinag uusapan ang ganung bagay. There are some things that are too deep for words. And others express it through their actions, and how they live. It speaks for them instead. At kelan pa naging shallow ang pinoy? Filipinos are survivors in the first place.

Eh mga feeling matalino naman ang mga karamihan sa mga tiga-FF, eh. What’s news?

Well, I really cannot say that Filipinos are shallow and superficial. In fact, I could say that they’re simple-minded–but they have to outgrow it, and step up from their comfort zones.

Marami na akong naka-alitan sa Filipino Freethinkers. So, if you want to be called a “freethinker,” first off, you have to respect others’ opinion–not impose your own, as if you’re politically correct. Alam niyong applicable sa mga pisting yawang mga elitista sa FF, ang gan’tong quote:

Ayaw na nga sa diktaturya, kung umasta naman, daig pa du’n!

MSP, on the rage against the Marcos burial

Talk nga ng talk, wala namang walk. Ang tawag du’n, tok shet!

MSP, on the hypocritical people

In fact, who cares if the elitists of the Filipino Freethinkers are really THAT GOOD in English? Apparently, the elitists of FF are sucking in logic.

PALAMUNIN ang mga elitista ng Filipino Freethinkers group

Like any other elitist, they only feed through others’ hard-earned money.

If they really want to be respected, why can’t they support and advocate TRUE democracy? Simply put, they’re like any other LIBERAL ELITES who impose their self-righteous beliefs towards theists.

AS IF NAKAKA-BOBO PALA ANG MAGIGING MAKA-DIYOS!?

Una sa lahat, hindi para sa lahat ang ATEISMO. HELLO! Nothing beats the word of mouth, so Jesus Christ really existed. Ang magsasabing mythological figure si Hesukristo eh, hindi pa nakakaranas ng kabutihan sa buhay. Kahit anong religion iyan, may MILAGRO iyan! Kahit sa Buddhist o sa Islam nga, mayroon eh!

To be honest, do not always expect a miracle. Alam niyo ba ang milagro? Nangyayari lang iyun BY CHANCE, so ang kailangan doon ay–consistent fervent prayers and devotions lamang po para lang magkaroon ng milagro.

Senyor Komikado’s statements

As years pass by, pahigpit ng pahigpit ang mga patakaran ng FF. How ironic, they condemn the Marcos regime, calling Macoy a “tyrant,” samantalang these same elitistang twatards who are mods of FF at the same time practice tyranny by powertripping its own members. OHA, they don’t actually practice what they preach. In short, POSER!

Even Marlene Aguilar will call the elitists in FF as “posers.” Poser to the point that, kunwaring LIBERAL, ngunit sa totoo lang talaga, they are FAR from being liberals–and what “FREE” in freethought? I don’t see it.

“Tapos yang mga atheists na yan sobrang mangmang sa basic philosophy. Good without God daw sila eh kapag walang diyos sa world view mo, wala na ring good at evil, mga bobo talaga. Tapos eto pa, 80% chance, kapag atheist automatic weaboo din kasi sa anime lang nila nakikita yung preferred reality nila kasi loser sila sa totoong buhay. Tapos mga atheists suportado rin nila ang LGBT kasi sobrang undesirable nila sa mga straight women kaya baka sa LGBT group may pumatol sa kanila.”

This is the excerpt from the original “Fruitful and Feisty Filipino Memes” FB page. Well, nag-2.0 and FFFM ay dahil tingin ko, target sila ng “IBAGSAK ang mga pro-Duterte pages,” c/o the Yellow horde.

Heto ang BEST description sa mga elitista sa Filipino Freethinkers. And the last sentence? WELL, iyan ang most accurate tsaka precise na statement tungkol sa kanilang lahat.

Hindi nakapagtataka, the elitistas in FF flaunt their so-called “intelligence,” but all they do is nothing but to talkshit to other members of the group. It’s not even new to fresh eyes (sariwang mata pa iyan, ah! Hindi po mata ng isda ang tinutukoy ko!) that many of the active members of Filipino Freethinkers group post the same old gasgas crap, only to “please” the power-tripping mods.

Hindi po matalino ang mga elitista–lalo na sa Rational Filipino group? Huwag ako bes! Someone actually added and added me on Rational Filipino, until I deleted him on FB for good. Don’t me with Rational Filipino–it’s so far the most toxic, and the most tyrannical group ever. Kapag magsabi ka lang ng opinyon na IBANG-IBA sa mga members dun, bansagan ka.

If you think that the Yellow Oligarchs restored Philippine democracy, then you must be an idiot. Democracy na nga, but it was at the expense of our world-class economy naman! #FactCheck, it was Cory Aquino who made the Philippines into a third-world country. Kung sa tingin niyo eh umuunlad ang Pilipinas dahil sa demokrasya, absence ng diborsyo pati na rin ang homophobia, eh ibig sabihin nun, mga bobotic na tupa lang kayo na adik sa Inquirer, ABS-CBN at saka sa mga websites gaya ng Thinking Class of the Philippines.

Now stop pretending to be a leftist. Mauunawaan ko pa siguro kung leftist o anarchist kayo, eh hindi eh. You elitistas in FF are the same bunch of spoiled brats who do not do your homework, play video games everyday and watch anime while limiting yourself to the following sources: Inquirer, mga akda ng mga anti-Marcos, history textbooks pati mga textbooks na pro-Dilaw atsaka anti-Marcos.

Watching anime or playing video games should NOT be an excuse to have low grades in school. Also, hindi po sila excuse para lang kumitid ang utak niyo.

And what’s with glorifying America, anyway?

Isang MALAKING SAPAK po ito sa mga tiga-FF.

To be honest, dapat noong 2015 pa ako UMALIS ng Filipino Freethinkers. Apparently, it was my mistake to let my online friend join the group, or be a member of the group is because–I just want to introduce her to a group that is willing to promote liberal thinking in the Philippines.

Turns out, the Filipino Freethinkers group betrayed me–well, my beliefs, that is.

To have a peace of mind, I actually left the Filipino Freethinkers, then slowly, didn’t bother logging in to GirlTalk anymore.

The FF group has lost its credibility

…and sad to say, Rappler is at the brink of following suit. Tune in to senyorkomikado to find out.

RP said:

I used to be a member of that group when we we’re supporting the Reproductive Health Bill but now the Filipino Free Thinkers has allied with the Catholic Church in speaking against the president. The same organization that they butt heads with when RH Bill was an issue. Sad to say, Nawalan na sila ng purpose ng naging law ang RH that they have to find a new villain to demonize to make themselves look good. Lahat na lang ng issue pinapatulan just to drive the point home na liberal sila. I hope mabasa nila ito because I know some of them pero p-ny3ta, Red Tani, Celdran and company, pro abortion kayo or at least yung mga extreme left sa grupo nyo tapos ngayon may issue kayo about criminals getting killed ? Ano yan,sinasakyan nyo na lang for attention para lang mapangatawanan na liberal kayo? Baka mamaya pati PETA like stunt gawin nyo.Oa na kayo promise kaya i stop following that page.

Well, I also unfollowed Carlos Celdran, or Pareng Kaloy’s page.

KALOKA! Halata namang bayaran si Celdran, eh! Also, he does not take kindly into constructive criticisms. Buti pa nga si Prof. Xiao Chua, willing naman to take criticisms–and guess what? Sir Xiao maintains good relations with Prof. Antonio Contreras.

Also, ano palang pinaglalaban ni Kaloy pala!? He even BRAGGED about destroying a pro-DUTERTE baller from a nurse, who supported Duterte.

GAN’TO KA-GARAPAL ang mga putapeteng Dilawan! I thought Kaloy will remain pro-Marcos, but he’s actually a hypocrite. Siya ang matatawag kong–KLOSETANG ELITISTA. Halata namang fashion statement lang niya ang pagiging Loyalista niya kuno, eh. Para lang masabi na–he’s the patron of the arts, therefore, he was pro-Marcos.

To be honest, mas credible pa nga ang mga ss. na nilalang:

Prof. Antonio Contreras, Marlene Aguilar, Sass Rogando Sasot, Mocha Uson, Atty. Bruce Rivera, and a lot more.

#KomiSays: Pagtawanan niyo pa si Marlene tsaka Mocha, HNNG! In fact, Marlene Aguilar denounces Leni Robredo as the Vice President–if Marlene Aguilar were the sorceress, she would say, “Isasahog ko, ang kaluluwa ni Monchang, sa LUGAW!”

In fact, the Freethinkers didn’t only targeted Mocha as their laughing stock. Pati si Marlene Aguilar, they also made her a laughing stock. WOW, so kapag paniniwalaan mo si Marlene, crazy talk pala, ah!?

This made me think of leaving the FF group–for good.

  1. Ramdam ko po yung rage niyo. I also left the group years ago, and ilang months ko pa lang dun, dama ko na agad na hindi talaga freethinking community yung group na yun dahil sobrang close-minded and elitist ng most people, as you said.

    • Haha! Actually, iyun na nga ang New Year’s Resolution ko na matatawag kong NYR. For me, I no longer liked the fact that they even banned their supposed ally in their group. Also, sobrang hypocritical na nga ang mga tao dun, kapag hindi ka lang agree sa mga sinasabi nila, iga-gang-up ka nila.
