GENERAL TRIAS CITY, Cavite (The Adobo Chronicles, Cavite Bureau) – The Leni Robredo camp was so confident that their claim of 130,000 attendees at their most recent concert rally would be unbeatable. But they learned to never say never.
Vote-rich Cavite province delivered for the BBM-Sara UniTeam. And the Caviteños delivered well.
As aerial photos and videos of the UniTeam grand rally in General Trias City went viral on the Internet, netizens thought they were seeing images from the 2016 miting de avance of President Rodrigo Duterte.
But the photos were authentic, non-Photoshopped images from the UniTeam rally. No balloons, no paper flowers, no confetti, no oversized headdresses. Just people, real people.
The Adobo Chronicles ventured to estimate the crowd at one million, subject of course to honest-to-goodness fact checking by Rappler, VeraFiles, Inquirer, ANC, FactCheckPH, and News 5.
Regardless, pinklawans were one in deciding to cancel Cavite — at least in their advantage column. Oh, this cancel culture. Sometimes it works well!
