AFTER ‘AGING REBEL’ COMMENT
Joma Sison hits back at Panelo: His remarks are stupid, devoid of reason

Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) founder Jose Maria Sison on Tuesday hit back at presidential spokesman Salvador Panelo for describing him as an “aging armchair passé rebel.”

For the Netherlands-based communist leader, it was “politically and intellectually bankrupt” for Panelo to refer to his aging.

“The ad hominem remarks against me are stupid, impertinent and devoid of reason. It is an attempt to distract attention from the issues that I raise,” Sison told reporters.

Sison pointed out that Panelo as well as President Rodrigo Duterte even belong to the same senior age bracket as he is.

Sison’s remark came after Panelo had criticized him when he accused Duterte of “bowing to Chinese interests” during his talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping last week.

The communist leader noted that he has been standing up for the sovereign rights of the Philippines and the Filipino people over the issue on the West Philippine Sea.

“This position of mine is supported by the broad masses of the people, the revolutionary movement and by the most responsible leaders, organizations and institutions motivated by patriotism,” Sison said. —KG, GMA News
