MANILA � Before new communist recruits learn the many ropes of being a member, they are first taught the art of lying.
This, according to Major General Antonio Parlade, Jr., of the National Task to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF ELCAC), on Thursday after a recent meeting with a daughter of an NPA leader.
"The first thing they teach you when you join the armed revolution is to lie. That's necessary in order for revolutionaries to survive and while covering their criminal acts," Parlade quoted Joan Andrea Drei Toledo, the estranged daughter of NPA Supremo Antonio Lim Toledo, as telling him during the launch of her book "Crossing the Red Line: Unmasking Covert Communists."
Drei, who claims to be the biological daughter of the untouchable NPA Supremo, admitted to having lived through hell being raped for the first 17 years of her life by her own father, whom she describes as a New People's Army (NPA) terrorist.
Saying she is unfortunate to have him as a biological father, Drei seeks help to put an end to the longest running communist movement in Southeast Asia.
'I need your help to destroy his (father) Red army through something that will benefit all of us and will effectively put a stop to my father and his NPA operatives from recruiting more covert members and foot soldiers from schools, universities, rural areas, and GIDAs, the short term for Geographical Isolated and Depressed Areas, Drei said on her Facebook post on August 29, 2019.
Parlade said that for 50 years, NPA leader Toledo has evaded his captors through his duplicity, despite the crimes he committed, including the rape of his own child since before she was 4 years old as evidenced by the PNP medico-legal examination; and the 9-month sadistic torture of his own wife from 2017 to 2018.
The sadistic and slow killing of Joan's (Drei) mother by Toledo, in order to silence her, had a chilling effect on Joan, whose parents and several other family members and relatives are part of the communist-terrorist CPP-NPA-NDF network of covert operatives, he said.
Toledo, he added, was also responsible for the strategic infiltration and hijacking of the administrative order of the independent world religion called Baha'i Faith in the Philippines.
This explains the behavior of pathological liars amongst Kamatayan (Makabayan) bloc members when confronted or put in an awkward position like the child trafficking of minors in Talaingod, Davao del Norte, and absence in public inquiries they themselves requested, or the CPP-staged attack on Bukidnon teacher last week, said Parlade, who is also Armed Forces of the Philippines Deputy Chief of Staff for Civil-Military Operations.
Case of NPA Sparu
Parlade also condemned the shooting of public school teacher Zhydee CabaAelez and her husband Ramil, both of Valencia, Bukidnon, by armed men inside a classroom at around 8 a.m. of October 15.
It is another classic case of NPA SPARU (Special Partisan Unit) attacking innocent civilians, in order for the people to blame the security sector, he said, adding that ACT Teachers party-list Rep. France Castro has to do everything to convince the public that Ms. CabaAelez is an ACT member, when clearly the latter denies it.
Castro, he added, is harassing police guards securing the victim in a hospital for not giving her the opportunity to sweet talk Ms. CabaAelez into lying, by admitting she is an ACT member, and possibly point at the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) again as the culprits.
Parlade also cited the revelations of James Durimon alias Joros, a former NPA Sparu in Negros who surrendered two weeks ago, of how they would pose as AFP or police in taking down their targets in Negros Island areas to fool the people that the killings were state-sponsored, and the group's supposed deceptive promises that forced them to join the communist movement.
By design the other CPP (Communist Party of the Philippines) allies were quick to assemble all their fake human rights defenders and were accusing the government of state-sanctioned killings of their militant members, he added.
Such modus operandi, Parlade said, is so common nowadays as the CPP is losing all their funding from foreign non-government organizations they have duped through the years.
The same modus was revealed by the late rebel priest Father Conrado Balweg. They need to destroy this administration with what else but more lies, he added. Time for reckoning is near for these fake regressive groups of the CPP.
The CPP-NPA is listed as a terrorist organization by the United States, European Union, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the Philippines. (PNA)
