- Netizens blast Uson for the terrorist tag.
Mocha Uson has struck again but netizens were quick to blast the fake news queen.
On Thursday, amid the growing resistance to the anti-terror bill because of the fears that it may be loosely used by the government against critics and opposition, Uson irresponsibly tweeted and tagged activists as terrorists, the very thing that protestors were worried about with the bill which Uson just proved to be true.
Mocha Uson called the protesters “mga terorista.” This further proves that anyone can be labeled a terrorist. Literally anyone!
And this also answers Sen. Sotto’s question. Yes po, senator, si Mocha Uson po ang gagong nagsabing terrorism ang activism. pic.twitter.com/017MtuMi6o

In a now-deleted tweet, Mocha tagged those who went to the UP rally as terrorists after retweeting Senate President Tito Sotto’s statement saying people should not worry about the anti-terror bill because no one will ever equate activism to terrorism.
Netizens blasted Mocha for her latest irresponsible remark.
Singer-comedian K Brosas hit the fake news queen saying all the fears about the anti-terror bill has been proven right by Mocha’s irresponsible tweet tagging protesters as terrorists.

Gretchen Ho, meanwhile, aired anxiety over the government’s capacity to create a bogus matrix implicating anyone especially the innocent ones.
Ho was previously included in a Malacanang matrix tagging her as one of the conspirators planning to oust the current government.

Growing calls to #JunkTerrorBillNow
The anti-terror bill has been met with rage and resistance from netizens after the House of Representatives passed it on third and final reading.
While the bill aimed to address the country’s problems on terrorism, there are vague provisions on the bill that can be used against legitimate dissenters and critics of the government.
That is why opposition to the bill has grown to a great proportion even reaching Hollywood.
From Taylor Swift to Darren Criss to Miss Universe queens Pia Wurtzbach and Catriona Gray, #JunkTerrorBillNow hashtag has gained ground and prompted some Congressmen to withdraw their support for the bill.
And sadly, meanwhile, in other parts of the world, injustice continues to thrive off the slippery rhetoric of peace maintenance… aka preying on the fears of the voting majority… https://t.co/eyIaboWZ7q https://t.co/kwGrp8EJbD
