"I also have the right to speak."
Mocha Uson just issued her first column in the daily news, Philippine Star amid of criticisms particularly from the daughter kin of the newspaper.
Nothing is seemingly surprising when her critics rant about this recent development and would make another movement to silence the sexy-dancer. But for Mocha Uson, who has a massive follower in Facebook, she’s just doing it for the sake of ordinary Filipinos
On her first column, she tackled about her right to speak.
I also have the right to speak.
Regardless of our education, public image or wealth, we are all Filipinos with equal rights. The freedom of speech is not exclusive to chosen individuals or groups; it is a freedom that is for everyone. I use my blog to spread the good achievements of the President and his administration, and to express my opinion on recent events since Social Media has now evolved – it is now a platform that we can use to express our beliefs and to enjoy our freedom of speech.
I have never reported the anti-Duterte Facebook pages or the pages that mock me and my intelligence because I believe that we are all entitled to our own opinion. Yet recently, some people have tried to shut down my blog, they have tried to silence my voice claiming that I am spreading fake news, encouraging hate and creating division. I am not perfect; I am open to be corrected if ever I made a mistake of sharing something that is not true. But shutting down my blog and silencing me show that it is not your intention to fight misinformation, it shows your true goal which is to take down a blog that shows positive information about the present administration.Mocha ended her column on acknowledging ordinary Filipinos for giving her strength to continue doing her part on supporting President Rodrigo Duterte
To my fellow ordinary people who are lending me their strength and their voice, our fight for change is not yet done. I will continue to fight for you and with you. I took this opportunity (no salary) to use it, to make sure that the collective voice of ordinary people is heard and to expose the truth no matter who is in our way. We will not give up! I believe that together we can change the course of our country toward a better tomorrow.READ ALSO: Political Analyst SLAMS Belmonte On Criticizing Mocha Being A Columnist Of Philippine Star
