Stupidity thrives well with state terrorism in the so-called whole nation approach to end the revolutionary movement of the Filipino people led by the Communist Party of the Philippines.
Legal organizations of various sectors are first red-tagged and falsely accused of being “communists” and “terrorists”.
And then the idiots in the reactionary armed forces and police call upon or even require them to present themselves as “legal fronts” of the CPP for a dialogue against the revolutionary movement or to do the dirty work of the fascists in attacking the revolutionary movement.
At all levels of state terrorism, from the level of the tyrant Duterte downwards, stupidity reigns and is based on the pretense of ignorance about imperialism, feudalism and bureaucrat capitalism as the root causes of the revolutionary movement of the people.
The more the tyranny of Duterte employs state terrorism or fascism to serve US imperialism and the local exploiting classes of big compradors and landlords, the more shall the people continue to wage revolution under the leadership of the CPP in order to achieve their own national and social liberation.

MANILA, Philippines — Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Gen. Oscar Albayalde said Thursday the PNP wants to engage in a dialogue members of the “legal fronts” of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) embedded in different sectors to address the government’s problems on insurgency.
This after President Rodrigo Duterte ordered the military to crush the communist insurgency in the country “now.”
“We will engage them in all their fronts doon sa agriculture [sector], labor, even the health, even doon sa academe which we started already and also even in the religious sector. I-e-engage natin ‘yan [We will engage them] in all their legal fronts,” Albayalde said in a chance interview at Camp Crame, Quezon City.
In a text message to INQUIRER.net, Albayalde said that the PNP wants to conduct this engagement through dialogues with select groups.
He pointed out that the CPP-NPA has many legal fronts in different sectors, even in politics.
He said the political groups secretly supporting the communist insurgency will be engaged by appropriate representatives from the government and not the PNP since the police force belongs to the armed sector.
“That’s the very reason why we have the national task force. This is a whole-[of]-nation approach, not only a whole-[of]-government approach, but it’s a whole-[of]-nation approach,” said Albayalde.
On Tuesday, the PNP initiated the first installment of a series of dialogues with school authorities to address security concerns inside campuses, including alleged recruitment of students to join the fold of the NPA, the armed wing of the CPP.
Those present in the dialogue were officials of the University of the Philippines, Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Ateneo de Manila University, and De La Salle University, and Interior Secretary Eduardo Año and Commission on Higher Education Chair Prospero De Vera. /jpv
