Ang walang katapusan na kabastusan ni Pres. Duterte at paano ito mabigyan ng solution

Ang walang katapusan na kabastusan ni Pres. Duterte at paano ito mabigyan ng solution

Tangap na natin na pangulo ng bansa si Duterte for the next five years (at hindi tayo mamamatay sa inggit kahit ano pa man!).

Pero hindi ito ibig sabihin na basta basta na lang natin na lulunukin ang kahit anong salita na lumalabas sa kanyang bunganga (unless kung sadyang tanga tayo).

Kung ikaw ay isang tao ( whether isang ama, ina, anak, kapatid, babae, lalaki o bata) na nasa normal na pag iisip, inaasahan natin na kokontrahin mo ang mga kabastusan sa pananalita ng pangulo lalo na kapag idinadaan sa isang joke during his televised speeches.

On Tuesday, December 19, bumalik na naman ang “sakit” ni Duterte, when he mused about the difference sa mga nire-rape noon at sa ngayon, saying:

“May I be forgiven by Maggie dela Riva. ‘Yung mga nirerape doon, talagang magaganda. Worth going to jail and worth dying for.”

“Kaya nga electrocuted man ‘yun sila. Well, ‘yun ang kabayaran…I cannot imagine now, modern times, na pati ‘yung one-month old na bata….” 

Sinabi ito ni Duterte in a speech in Malacañang at the ceremonial signing of the 2018 National Budget and Tax Reform Bills into law.

Dahil dito, muli na namang binatikos ang ating presidente.

Ngunit mayroong unsolicited advice si Gang Badoy, isang media practitioner at founder ng RockEd, kung papaano maiibsan ang problema na ito.

Alamin natin ang kanyang mga suggestions para sa Communications group ng Malacanang:

To the Comms Group:

1) Was there a prepared, written “more event-appropriate” speech? (National Budget signed and an historic Tax Reform Law yun! That’s big. Sana he spoke more on the subject. I know he did- and maybe he did when he asked the media to turn off cams, and we just didn’t catch it?)

2) Any chance someone can gently tell the President that mentioning anyone else’s rape should have been off limits?

The emotional cost alone of bringing up someone else’s traumatic memories publicly after so long or coming forward with their most horrid recollections renders ‘the mentioned’ bankrupt. Ubos yon.

3) Any chance we can get an appropriate speech, anytime this coming year, period…?

4) Any chance you can limit mic time for your Principal? Less rambling. More seremonyas. I dunno, fireworks, Bayanihan Dance Troupe, Madrigals, Ballet Philippines- anything to kill time and lessen him being the main event- even if he is the main event. (I get that.)

Pero less … chances lang sana for run-on, fragmented repeat-thought sharing. (I’m sure hindi rin gaanong okey sa inyo ‘to.)

5) Any chance he reads and sticks to the speeches written for him? Magagaling kayo. I’m sure mahuhusay ang inyong mga manunulat. Kaya yan.

No one can say this is irrelevant, it isn’t and you know it, too.

Hindi pa rin ako magsasawang umasa. Mataas resistensiya ko sa ganito, pero aminin niyo rin naman, na he can do better than this.

(I’m almost begging here. As a Media and Comms practitioner, and as a citizen of the Republic of the Philippines who will also stand up when Duterte enters a room because that is protocol.) Sigh. Help.

Ang tanong: Pakinggan naman kaya ng pangulo o ng kanyang so-called comms experts ang payo na ito when alam naman natin na ayaw nila na may kokontra sa kanya?
