Immigrants could sometimes be narrow-minded!

I hate to say this, but there are some Filipino immigrants who are simply narrow-minded like the rest of other immigrant diaspora in the world.

ALAM KO NA IYAN, HA!

Una sa lahat, many Filipinos who migrate to wealthier countries would often talk HIGH of their adopted homeland, but would purely trashtalk on their home country. For example, many immigrant fresh-off-the-boat Filipino-Americans would praise America nonstop, while trashtalking on their home country, the Philippines.

No wonder, supalpal ang mga pabebeng immigrants kay Julia Gillard, who was the prime minister of Australia. Partida, former PM Gillard is an immigrant herself.

Also, I’m not going to spare my compatriots, either. In fact, marami talaga sa mga immigrant Filipino diaspora na hanggang ngayon, makikitid parin ang UTAK!

…and the latest? There’s this one half-Japanese dude who lives in Japan… who keeps on denying what I have observed when I went to Japan, again.

I said, “Nipponbashi and Dotonbori aren’t as clean as other parts of Osaka.”

Well, Osaka is really a nice place, but there are some places where you will doubt that it’s really clean. Just because he lives in Osaka, Japan doesn’t mean, he’ll turn a blind eye to his surroundings. Kung iyung mga kapwa nga niyang Japinoy, mas tapat tungkol sa buhay doon sa Japan. Many Filipino-Japanese will tell me that “It’s More Fun in the Philippines,” no matter how developed and more efficient their other home country is.

This is because I allowed my curiosity to watch Vice News’s documentary, “The Worst Internship Ever.” It is about Chinese immigrant workers being “exploited” by their bosses, and not giving them good pay. Sabi sa’min, “Paninira lang iyan!” Kung paninira lang ang ginagawa ng Vice News, eh ano pala tawag ninyo sa mainstream Western media (New York Times, for instance)? Eh, Japan Times na nga ang nagre-report ng mga dark sides ng Japan, ah.

At kung paninira lang din naman ang sinasabi ng Vice News, eh di dapat wala nang manonood ng mga docus nila. Besides, this documentary did not discourage me to still pursue my dream to stay in Japan for a short period or time… or for good. Iyun na nga, dapat bukas at malawak ang kaisipan, hindi iyung sasabihin mong, “NOT TRUE! Lahat kasinungalingan iyan!”

Side Note: Speaking of the Chinese workers, eh what do you expect ba naman sa Tsina? Hanggang ngayon nga, hindi namin ramdam na mayaman ang Tsina, eh! Kung mayaman talaga ang Tsina, eh di dapat wala nang “dirt poor” na mga tao sa mga liblib na lugar! Kung sa mga liblib na lugar sa Hapon nga, ‘di mo naman ramdam ang “kahirapan” doon.

Of course, I won’t doubt Japan’s efficiency and of course, its keen observation towards ethics in general, but—that doesn’t mean I’m gonna turn a blind eye towards issues like karoshi, and of course, some aspects like the hikkikomori, and lastly: Bullying. Also, homelessness and beggars on the streets isn’t something new, especially in major cities in Japan (naku po! Kahit saang mayamang bansa pa iyan, meron at meron talagang mga homeless! Hindi lang sa Amerika nangyayari iyan, anoh!).

Kung ayaw niyo pang maniwala, eh di huwag! Kung kami nga na nagtitimpi sa delubyong sistema ng Pinas (honest observation na iyan, ha!), hindi naman ibig sabihing, ipupuna lang namin lahat neto, eh. Siyempre, kahit papano may mabubuting aspeto paring natitira ang Pinas. Lalo na’t Duterte na ang pangulo natin, kahit hindi naman niya siguro SAKOP ang lahat ng Pinas (kaya nga, dine-debate ang pederalismo!), kahit papano nag-e-effort parin naman siya.

However, nothing beats the narrow-mindedness of the Filipino-American immigrant diaspora

Lalo na siguro ang mga mahihilig sa mga TELEBASURA, tsaka subscriber pa ng The Filipino Channel (TFC); malamang, kahit ipagmayabang nila ang green card nila o pasaporte, WALA PARIN IYAN! In fact, what’s the USE of FLAUNTING your passport or your green card, if you yourself subscribe to something that is “BAKYA” by sosyal standards? Iyung mga pa-sosyal nga, kung sila nga siguro ang magiging immigrants sa Amerika, magtitimpi na lang sila sa mga local channels diyan sa Tate, anoh! Kaya, before judging others that, “Watching teleseryes makes you love the Philippines more,” is complete bullcrap! Sus! Kung ako nga, sinuguran ako ng isang fantard ni Maja Salvador, and guess what? Her face is UGLY AS FUCK! Also, may naka-alitan din si Senyor Komikado regarding Julia Barretto’s bad attitude. Partida, nurse sa Amerika iyung nagtatanggol kay Julia B, ah!

And those incidents are on Instagram pa!

This makes me believe that being in America won’t make you “classier.” Anong kina-CLASS ng isang green card, o ng blue American passport, ha? Kapag American citizen ka nga, baka binastos ka lang din ng mga ibang lahi kapag bibisita ka lang sa bayan nila. Well, it happens! If a Filipino passport is not something to be proud of, MAS LALONG HINDI NAKAKA-PROUD magkaroon ng American passport. In fact, Canadian passports are better and more respected; ganun na rin ang Australian passport. Also, Filipinos, whether you like it or not, they’re far more respected, if they show their Filipino passport, as compared to Americans who show their American passport.

Kumbaga, sabihin nating restrictive masyado ang Filipino passport, but ask Kach Umandap-Howe, she never ever obtained her visas in the Philippines. Well, what do you expect? Same bureaucracy all over and over again!

Buti pa nga si Kach, mas open-minded ng ‘di hamak kesa sa mga naturalized Americans na Fil-Am na hanggang ngayon, makikitid parin ang utak! Partida, hindi pa sila nakaka-libot ng iba’t ibang panig ng mundo, as if the USA is something to brag to other Filipinos. Guys, hindi nakaka-proud na makatungtong sa Amerika at all. In fact, hate me or call me biased, pero mas nakaka-PROUD pa nga makatungtong ng Japan, since your only number one enemy is the language barrier. Eh sa Amerika, parang chicken na lang iyan sa mga Pilipino, eh! Well, maliban sa kailangan mo parin ng kotse para makalibot sa iba’t ibang lugar doon!

In defense of Japan: Walang dapat katakutan sa Fukushima nuclear disaster

May tumawag samin regarding their supposed trip to Japan. Sabi niya, “Huwag na kayo pumunta sa Japan! May nuclear disaster dun!”

What I think: We’re perfectly fine when we went to Japan. Tatlong beses na kaming dumalo roon, and guess what? Hindi kami na-biktima ng sinasabi ninyong radiation! Also, malakas ang tiwala namin sa mga Hapones na buwis-buhay nilang aayusin ang power plant sa Fukushima para lang sa kaligtasan ng mga Hapones, pati mga foreign tourists tsaka mga residents.

Well, hindi lang mga family friends namin ang guilty sa pagpupuna ng ibang bansa. Maski na rin ang mga local Americans nga, hindi ka rin hihikayat na dumalo sa Gitnang-Silangan. Sabi sakin, “Ayaw akong papuntahin sa Middle East!”

Heto ang realidad sa Amerika: Hindi sila gaano ka-well travelled. Kumbaga, they only find the US and only the US as their paradise: Partida, marami ring mga suliranin sa Amerika, gaya ng gun control. Also, racism is still well and alive, same with homophobia. Recent lang na bumibiyahe ang mga Kano sa iba’t ibang panig ng mundo.

And never forget how America turned into shit when Obama rose to power!

In other words, sadyang makikitid ang mga utak ng iilan sa mga imigranteng Pilipino

Hindi ganyan ang mga ibang kamag-anak ko, ha! Iyung mga iba nga, malawak ang kaisipan. Kung prudista man ang iba sa kanila, hindi sila iyung tipong nag-i-impose ng mga paniniwala sa kamag-anak nila. Dahil una sa lahat, kapag citizen ka na ng ibang bansa, eh dapat nga, yakapin mo iyung kultura doon. Hindi pwede iyung sa kulturang Pilipino ka lang nae-expose. Kung gusto mong maging true-blue citizen ng isang bansa, eh dapat hindi ka na subscriber ng TFC. Dapat kang mag-timpi sa mga local channels doon. Hindi nakakapag-palakas ng pagiging makabayan ang panonood ng TFC. Itanong lang si Maharlika.

In short, don’t watch TFC, or subscribe. Not worth the money! At isa pa, hindi ka rin matututong maki-sosyo sa mga locals. Trust me!

Senyor Komikado has lately been ranting on bobotantes and telebasuras…

But that doesn’t stop there. Mocha Uson has recently been appointed as the assistant secretary to the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO). Surprising, huh? Well, NO.

It’s not surprising, esp. if the current administration completely supports democracy and freedom of speech. Heck, even trolls, bloggers, and even Facebook pages are competing with traditional journalists.

That’s the biggest threat, at least, for the Yellows.

However, Senyor Komikado has lately been posting his tirades against the entertainment industry. Like for instance, “anyone can be an artista” for sure.

DEBUNKING THE MYTHS

“Iyung mga tiga-suporta ni Mocha Uson at kay Katay Dugong, mga bobotante naman iyan na mahilig sa mga TELEBASURA!”

Eh sino kaya sa inyo ang malakas umasta na parang fantard ng telebasura? At sino po ang tunay na bobotante, ah? Tandaan ninyo, nasa elitista parin ang tunay na bobotante. Sabihin nating bobotante parin ang mga bumoto kina Tito Sotto tsaka Manny Pacquiao (well, this is where I completely agree with Komi), but these supporters are the ones who love telebasuras so much, they don’t even explore other TV channels.

I don’t think, the elitistas are fans of telebasuras. SUS! Iyung mga artista nga na estudyante ng mga sosyaling pamantasan, ordinaryong tao lang po sila sa loob ng campus. In fact, to paraphrase Komi, mas sikat tsaka mas rockstar parin ang mga ATLETA. Also, take note, mas mataas parin ang antas ng mga ATLETA kesa sa mga artista.

#KOMISAYS makes a comeback on this blog!

Nakalipas ang mga taon, bumukod na sa wakas si Senyor Komikado rito. Para sa kanya, heto lang ang tanging paraan upang maihayag niya ang sarili niyang mga saloobin… sa pamamagitan ng WordPress. Higit sa lahat, tingin niya eh dapat lang siyang bumukod ay dahil na rin, nakakahiya naman kapag makita niya ang sarili niya na palamunin lang siya sa isang blog. ETCHOZ!

Speaking of Senyor Komikado, here are the things he has been ranting recently…

Parehas lang din na bobotante ang mga prudista, bukod pa sa elitista. In fact, what’s the purpose of your Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC)-accredited license if you voted for Sotto or Fuckman? In my point of view, these kinds of people are SCUMS in my eyes. They shall NEVER EVER be allowed to breed, to quote Marlene Aguilar. Prude conservatives can be as bobotante as the liberal elites, because voting for Drilon and Trillanes is similar to voting for Sotto and Fuckman.

The prude conservatives also have a serious problem, esp. when it comes to critical and logical thinking skills. If the elitistas are bobotante, the prude conservatives are also NO DIFFERENT. Remember when I ranted about the Marcos and Duterte supporters who believed in Pacman as the “senator who must not be underestimated.” If I ranted about Manny Pacquiao, that’s because at the first place, he does not deserve to be a senator! Making him a senator only means that there are many Filipino people who are STUPID ENOUGH to vote for someone who isn’t qualified in the senate at the first place. Partida, Pacman approved of the Liberal Party horde to be removed from their committee chairmanships, but that’s his fucking job, you know. What’s something to laud there, eh?

I do understand Komi’s disgruntlement regarding these Sotto and Pacman supporters. Look, the more you watch TELEBASURAS, the more you believe that Titosen and Fuckman are qualified enough to become senators. It’s like justifying that the “PWEDE NA IYAN” mentality is completely part of the Filipino culture. PUNYETA naman oh!!!

The same people who voted for Noynoy Aquino, and still voted for Tito Sotto and Manny Pacquiao should be included as TARGETS in the Duterte administration’s most controversial campain: OPLAN TOKHANG, or in simple terms, the war on drugs.

Dapat lang ma-TOKHANG ang mga bobotanteng supporters ni Noynoy Aquino na sinuportahan din sina Sotto tsaka Pacman. Itanong niyo lang si Marlene Aguilar.

Alam niyo bang kahit sabi-sabi ng mga pa-sosyal diyan na “BADUY” ang mga East Asian dramas, at least it’s understandable if they call teleseryes “BAKYA.”

Also, speaking of teleseryes, they’re all fucking cliché! Kaya sa Twitter, may #typicalpinoyteleserye pa nga na harshtag, eh!

Obviously, we call it TELEBASURAS simply because, everything is unrealistic. Sus! Pagkatapos ng awayan dito, sabunutan doon, sampalan dito-doon, it’s weird that your favorite artistas still get the same rebonded or salon-treated hair, while your crushie still has this gel-treated hair. Huwag kami oi! At dito na nga pumapasok ang putanginang beauty standards na nilalamon ng sapilitan sa mga madla: The straighter the hair, the whiter the skin, and the slimmer the body, the better! Kapag hindi ka pasok sa mga kategoryang iyun, you’re perceived as “UGLY,” unless you’re like, a black Hollywood star. See the double standards!?

Kaya siyempre, alam niyo na kung bakit ayaw na ayaw ko na may katulong o yaya sa loob ng sarili kong bahay. Manonood lang din naman sila ng mga teleserye. And worse, putak sila ng putak na hindi raw makabayan ang panonood ng mga makabuluhang channel gaya ng NHK. BOBO BA SILA!? Better watch telebasuras? And their mentality? Putangina, may Dunnings-Krueger syndrome nga sila! Akala naman nila, sila na magaling, but to be honest, they’re fucking stupid to the core. Their logic is like the logic of a person who’s high on drugs. Parang naka-singhot lang ng shabu, pwede nang ipa-TOKHANG for good.

…and speaking of Geraldine Roman,

I have lauded these four solons who transferred for good. Remember, PDP-Laban or the UNA party are not as “trapo” or “balimbing” as the Liberal Party! Mas tatawagin ko pang BALIMBING tsaka TRAPO ang mga katulad nila Lugaw Monchang FRAUDredo, Lucy Torres, Alan Peter Cayetano, at higit sa lahat… sina De Lima, Drilon, Trillanes tsaka si Kiko Matsing! At hindi ko na rin palalampasin ang mga idolo ng mga BOBOTANTE… sina FUCKMAN tsaka TITOSEN.

To those who call Rep. Geraldine Roman as “trapo’t balimbing (I’m looking at you, prude conservatives and liberal elites alike!),” then you should realize that Drilon, Trillanes, Pangilinan, De Lima, Sotto, and Pacquiao are the true example of what TRAPO’T BALIMBING really is!

Also, the yellow libtards and leftards are pro-protectionism! That’s a threat, because after all, they thwart economic liberalism… and worst: They act like TELEBASURA FANS, to think most of ’em I believe, do not really watch teleseryes.

HAHAHA this! They romanticize almost everything.

And lastly, THIS!

Kahit sino, kahit HIPON na nga ang maituturi sa’yo ng mga elitista (Melai), kahit siguro mukha kang BATANG HAMOG (Maymay), at kahit siguro mukha ka namang alipin sa gigilid (Miho), pwedeng-pwede ka paring mag-artista—and PBB is always there to give you a career.

Blame the Pinoy Big Brother culture for propagating such shit like this! Kahit pangit na nga siguro ang hitsura mo, o ‘di kaya kapag may hitsura ka naman eh pang-Jeane Napoles lang din naman ang level, pwede ka paring maging artista.

…and speaking of Maymay, siya iyung artistang hindi mo akalaing… artista nga. In fact, papano ba naman naging artista ang mga payatot na mukhang bangkay!? Why should walking skeletons be called as “models,” when in fact, Rita Gabiola, also known as the “Badjao Girl,” has more potential to be a model… and is better-looking than Maymay?

It’s because a lot of fantards are decreasing their standards. Iba talaga kapag fantard ng PBB, anoh?

Conclusion

I think, Senyor Komikado has gone really far… from his humble beginnings as a meme character (Komi Says Memes), to a full-time DDS (Senyor Komikado). He is now the voice of people who not only support the Duterte administration, but he’s also campaigning to BOYCOTT telebasuras and also advocating bobotantes to be the targets of the controversial Oplan Tokhang.

For me, even though my infatuation towards Masato Sakai isn’t as intense as when I first discovered him, my love for Kensuke Komikado won’t change!!!
