Run, Sara, Run (Away)
by Norman Novio

Whether in times of pandemic or not, held elsewhere or right here in Occidental Mindoro, the “Run, Sara, Run” motorcade is a nasty manifestation and display of usual theatrics in pushing forward a phenomenon called political dynasty which is part and parcel of the dreaded traditional politics.

Traditional politics and political dynasty are the two deadliest pandemic in our country’s socio-political history. Traditional politics and political dynasty are cradles of weathervane politicians and butterflies, the bootlickers and their hardcore flatterers disguised as “concerned netizens”, the local politicians who hope to catch manna before 2022 from public gods upstairs and coagulate with them both in financial and organizational terms.

On March 21, 2021, Sunday, the “Run, Sara, Run” campaign are set to spearhead a “grand caravan” at the Quirino Grandstand in Manila according to a news report. Prior to this, during the 35th anniversary of the Edsa People Power Revolution on February 25, 2021, the so-called Alyansa ni Inday Movement (AIM) held a grand “Run, Inday, Run” motorcade which included sports cars and motorcycles.

But last Thursday, March 18, 2021 at around 12 noon, a motorcade passed through the municipal building of Sablayan with a mobile propaganda vehicle bearing tarpaulins inscribed with the words, “Run, Sara, Run. ISPM MIMAROPA 2022”. Seemingly, ISMP stands for “Inday Sara for President Movement” and the event is spearheaded by ISPM-MIMAROPA and PRRD Support Group Movement that I do not give a heck what kind of creatures they are and I do want to find out either.

I was told that the caravan passed through San Jose and its adjacent municipalities. Caravan of sort aims to amplify the call for Mayor Duterte to run in next year’s presidential race while raising public awareness to gain more support for their advocacy. That is the blueprint of this grand design to push for traditional politics and political dynasty, which are, if I may repeat, the two deadliest pandemic in our country’s socio-political history.
