Duterte’s tirades against Prof. Jose Ma. Sison are a vain attempt to derogate a giant of a revolutionary intellectual and leader. In relentlessly attacking Ka Joma, Duterte is overcompensating for his drug-shrivelled and power-intoxicated brain. He has completely embraced the counterrevolutionary anti-communist US line and abandoned all pretensions for being a Leftist.
The revolutionary movement in the Philippines is fortunate that, at 78 years old, Ka Joma remains physically sound and intellectually potent. He continues to give invaluable service to the Filipino people and their revolutionary forces. As Chief Political Consultant of the NDFP, Ka Joma has helped the NDFP Negotiating Panel indefatigably advance the Filipino people’s national democratic aspirations and uphold the integrity of the NDFP.
His political acumen remains sharp and continues to make timely analysis of current developments in the country. The Party and revolutionary forces continue to value his masterful ideological guidance and practical advise.
The young Red fighters of the NPA as well as young activists of the national democratic movement continue to be inspired by Ka Joma’s sterling record as a revolutionary fighter and leader, his experience as a field general of the NPA and his impecable record as a Party leader. His volumes of theoretical writings are a treasure trove of Marxist-Leninist-Maoist gems.
