Gordon brandishes replica of Spanish era sword to recall ancestor’s heroism

To fire up his campaign, presidential candidate and senator Richard Gordon brandished on Tuesday, a replica of the sword his great-grandfather, José Tagle, seized from a Spanish general in remembrance of the “first victory of the (1896) Revolution,” in Cavite.

Gordon said his ancestor Tagle played a key role as an ally of General Emilio Aguinaldo. Inquirer.net

But somebody please… take that Spanish sword away from that — American!

  1. Flash Gordon, what you are bragging is already a finished chapter of the life of our nation. Of what value does that have to our present displacement of our economy and our ability to chart our own destiny? What value does that have with the loss of our identity? What value does that have with the loss of our respectability of our nation? What value does that have with our struggle today against the invasion of the americans of our defense, political, education, culture and the whole of our developmental system of which we have become so worshipping dependents on them?
