SABUNGEROS yesterday countered that they are better compared to the New Peoples’ Army terrorists who are reportedly allies of trailing presidential bet Leni Robredo, who earlied called for the closure of e-sabong or online sabong (cockfight) operations in the country.

A game farm owner in Indang, Cavite chided Robredo, adding that she should focus on stopping the proliferation of drugs and illegal numbers game in her province.

“Magtigil ka Leni Robredo, ‘wag kaming sabungero ang pag-initan mo. Ang asikasuhin mo iyang jueteng at droga sa probinsiya mo at iyang pakikipag-alyansa mo sa mga teroristang komunista,” Mang Kanor said.

Hundreds of thousands of sabungeros said that Robredo would not get a vote from them and their families.

The cockfighters said that if the online cockfighting is completely shut down, thousands of cockpit workers across the country will lose their jobs which is equivalent to thousands more of their family members will go hungry and even their children will not be able to study.

“Talagang may gana pa siya (Robredo) manawagan ng ganyan? Ano ipapakain n’ya sa pamilya namin?” Ka Korning, a caretaker of a farm in Alitagtag, Batangas, said.

Mang Julian, a cockfigter from Pandi, Bulacan, said that it is good to hear what Robredo is saying in shutting down sabong online, but that is if there are alternative jobs for the hundreds of thousands of breeders in the Philippines.

“Kung may ibibigay kang trabaho puwede namang ihinto iyan. Pero kung wala, ikaw ang dapat huminto Leni kasi puro ka lang satsat. Puro ka wento, wala namang wenta,” he added.

The sabungeros even challenged Robredo that if she really loves the Filipino people, her priority will be the NPA terrorists who pose a big security threat.

Many are now wondering why Robredo, after President Duterte and Senator Ping Lacson revealed her alliance with the communist terrorists, has not issued a clear statement to deny it and instead many more legal terrorist fronts are involved and are present in her concert rallies.

Meanwhile, sabungeros, cockpit workers, and employees of online sabong operations have threatened to cancel Robredo after she called for the closure of online sabong operations at the “Kandidatalks” presidentiables series.

Stakeholders were aggrieved when she said e-sabong operations should immediately stop because it harms Filipino families.

“Masyado siyang nagmamalinis! Bakit wala bang illegal gambling sa probinsiya n’ya? Hindi ba kamag-anak mismo nila ang may pa-jueteng sa Camarines Sur? Napaka-ipokrita n’ya!” a Bicolano gaffer stressed.

“Iniimbestigahan na nga di ba? Bakit kailangang ipasara? Alam ba niya na sa e-sabong kami kumukuha ng kinakain namin araw-araw? Me ipapakain ba siya?” Mang Kanor, a resident of Indang, Cavite, said for his part.

“Palibhasa, sanay siyang mandaya noon pang 2016. Kaya pati iyong mga rally nila ngayon ay dinadaya nila sa pamamagitan ng photoshop at pinalalabas na marami kunwari. Alam ba niya na ang tawag sa mga mandaraya sa sabong ay tyope? Para sa amin, si Leni ang manyonyope hindi lang sa sabong kundi sa tunay na kalagayan ng mga mahihirap na tao sa bansa,” a cockpit caretaker from Laguna, meanwhile, said.

Aside from adding billions in taxes to government coffers, online sabong has also provided employment.

“Ang tinitingnan lamang ni Robredo ‘yung maliit na bahagi na naging problema ng e-sabong. Bakit hindi niya tingnan ang mas malaking tulong nito. Hindi ba niya alam na mas maraming binuhay na pamilya ng dahil sa e-sabong,” a game-farm owner pointed out.
