Dear Thomas van Beerbum,
I read your letter to the crying policeman. Very impressive. Except you are a tourist and have no business participating in demonstrations aimed at destroying our democratic system. Being a part of an International Solidarity Mission, a delegate of the International Conference on Human Rights and Peace in the Philippines, and a fan of Joma Sison does not give you license to participate in a domestic disturbance.
You are a guest in my country. Weren’t you ever taught that when you visit someone else’s home you are supposed to be polite and civil to everyone who lives there, not only to the ones you like? Besides, who told you that you can waltz in to my home and act like you own the place?
Where does your arrogance come from, coming here to teach us Filipinos how to govern ourselves? Who appointed/elected/anointed you to be the great teacher to the Filipinos? Are you still tripping on that White Man’s burden thing?
I know you hate US-imperialism but what made you think Dutch-imperialism was something to be proud of? Did the Indonesians and Africans love being colonized by your people?
If you want to become a partisan and install a government led by Joma Sison then apply for Filipino citizenship first. Once you are a naturalized Filipino you can bitch as much as you want.
In the meantime, go back to where you came from and play with your arrogant self over there, before I give you the kind of bitch-slapping your mother should have given your red-head punk ass a long time ago.
