If you are a foreigner and are not adept to Philippine History as well as a naïve Filipino, you will get “Wow!” how the Philippines is now 113th year old free and independent country, but is it really? I really laugh out loud that most Filipinos think that indeed the Philippines is already 113th year old independent country and even make ardent devotion on its annual celebration; ahahaha !
Actually, this annual celebration on June 12 as a day when the Philippines finally free from the occupation of colonial powers and independent from its conquerors’ grip and influence is totally and absolutely NOT TRUE and NOT A FACTUAL event in the Philippine history; it is a great lie which Filipinos today still thought that it is true and some ignorant Filipinos even want to pass this legacy of lie to their children to preserve a lie about Philippine independence. Whatta!
For June 12,1898 which the modern Philippine flag today is first raise and wave on General Emilio Aquinaldo’s balcony, is not a day of independence of Filipinos from Spanish occupation neither the day the Philippines get finally free and independence from all foreign conquerors up to this day, rather according to Philippine history it is just a day ,Aguinaldo wants to encourage Filipinos to fight for freedom which they were currently deprived then because the Spaniards still rules over them and over the country (actually, even today the Philippines is still not free from the influence of Spaniards or the Philippines is not yet Independent from the Spanish rule for see the name of the country is still Spanish inspired that reminds Filipinos that their homeland is still the possession of the Spanish King- King Philip)Moreover, Filipinos have still Spanish inspired religion and feasts which most Filipinos upheld as theirs whereas they are not theirs.
Furthermore, after the Spanish occupation, does the Philippines is still free and independent then? Certainly not for after the Spaniards have conquered the Philippines, America follow; then after America, the Japanese conquer the Philippines. It is only according to Philippine history, that the Japanese have been subdued by America, the Philippines becomes as the Philippines is now. It is America who give the Philippines a freedom which the Philippines is enjoying now at July 4,1945; America bestow the Philippines a freedom but in exchange for ,you know, the Philippines have still child-like connection to United States that waits to be pampered by America.
Before, the Philippine Independence is celebrated on July 4 and not June 12 but it was only move by former Philippine president Diosdado Macapagal to June 12 in the urge of nationalist and historians then because they don’t want a trace of American influence or they don’t want to remember that the Philippines is made free and independent by the help of United States on July 4,1945,imitating Apolinario Mabini which alter the transcript so-called Act of the Declaration of Independence and want to remove America from it, but though Apolinario Mabini can erase the name “America” on the transcript, he can’t still remove the powers behind the transcript. Actually, the transcript of the so-called the Act of the Declaration of Independence was still inspired and under the bestowed power of United States, quote: “…and under the protection of our Powerful and Humanitarian Nation, The United States of America…” This so-called Act of Declaration of Independence transcript was just a rebellion against the tyranny of Spaniards especially the tyrant Catholic priests then who enslaves Filipinos through their power and through the religion the Spaniards severely imposed to the Filipinos, the religion Christianity.
The so-called Act of the Declaration of Independence (which includes the raising and waving of the Philippine flag as well the Philippine march) is just a declaration against the Spanish occupation in the Philippines and not against America who also conquer the Philippines, as well as it is also not against any foreign conquerors that will want to conquer the Philippines.
Therefore, the celebration of the so-called Philippine Independence on June 12 that also mimics the raising and waving of the national flag accompanied with the play of Philippine national march is just nothing but a fake legacy of Philippine independence which for the United States government a remainder that the Philippines is still their colony up until now because it is them who inspired it; the America is the protective power behind such so-called Philippine Independence ritual or ceremony. Take note, the Philippine National Flag is not Philippine made but rather Hong Kong made; wow, is this the so-called Philippine Independence?
What about the so-called more than centennial (113th) Philippine Independence? Where they got this, wow more than 100 years of Philippine Independence? Is it from “1898”? Terrible!
This annual Philippine Independence celebration on June 12 (the June 12, 1898; that is where they count the so-called independence of the Philippines, thus, 113th year old) is big terrible lie that slaps the both cheeks of every Filipinos that tricks the naïve and modern generation of Filipinos that we are indeed 113th year old free and independent since June 12, 1898 whereas it is NOT; whereas it is an outright LIE; and the worst, this terrible lie wants every current Philippine government to be a legacy for Filipinos to remember.
Therefore, is there really Philippine Independence on June 12? Or a trick or treat annual celebration?
