The evidence that Sen. Noynoy is abnormal – and therefore should not be voted president – seemed all there.
And Business Mirror columnist Butch del Castillo recounted it in excruciating detail using unnamed sources who had seen Noynoy acting “autistic.”
As a 3-year-old, Noynoy was a hyperactive tot. His boundless energy made him run around here, there and everywhere in their residential compound. For his own safety, he had to be put on a makeshift leash controlled by his yaya or nanny. “Before he was put on a leash, he was running around the yard as usual when the family’s guard dog, a Doberman, somehow escaped from its kennel. It took a courageous Kris Aquino to save her helpless brother from being mangled, but she herself got bitten in the lower leg.
This must be true, I thought in horror. Except for one tiny detail . Let’s see, Noynoy was 3 when this incident happened. And how old was Kris?
Noynoy was born February 8, 1960 and Kris was born February 14, 1971. So when Kris saved Noynoy from the Doberman she was what —- a mote in God’s eye?
You get the picture. But that Doberman scene that Butch retold sure was realistic.
He also wrote:
Another old acquaintance of the family confirms that, notwithstanding former senator Butz Aquino’s vehement protestations about his nephew’s condition, “it’s a fact thatNoynoy had to be sent to a special school.” That was when Noynoy was 5 or 6 years old, the family acquaintance says. Trouble is he can’t recall the name of the particular school where Noynoy was supposed to have received specialized guidance.
Hmm. Special school, eh. Let’s look at Noynoy’s school record. Got it. In 1965 or at the age of 5 he did enter a special school. It’s still standing and because it has a strange name let me spell it out for you , Butch.
It’s called A-T-E-N-E-O D-E M-A-N-I-L-A U-N-I-V-E-R-S-I-T-Y.
I understand First Gentleman Jose Miguel Arroyo and his son, Congressman Juan Miguel Arroyo, as well as the former President Joseph Estrada all had to be sent to the same special school you alluded to.
And President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo once taught there.
It must really be very special.
One other thing, Butch. You wrote:
In the circles that I circulate in, I was taken aback by the little anecdotes about Noynoy, all of which only seem to add credence and depth to suspicions of his actual condition. For example, there is this councilor from Makati who claims to have known Noynoy since he was a boy. This councilor swears he used to see this “quiet” boy whenever politicians and supporters of the late Cory would pay her a call at her residence on Times Street, Philam Village, Quezon City.
“He would just sit in a corner, mouth open but never saying a thing, and drooling,” the Makati councilor loudly tells everyone he meets. For all we know he is just making this up, considering that he belongs to a rival political party. But still, it would be very hard to cook up such things.
Wow, Noynoy was just scrunched up in a corner, stupidly quiet, and drooling.
But two paragraphs later, you described a very different kid:
As a 3-year-old, Noynoy was a hyperactive tot. His boundless energy made him run around here, there and everywhere in their residential compound. For his own safety, he had to be put on a makeshift leash controlled by his yaya or nanny.
You sure you’re talking about the same kid? Not yourself maybe or your own kid? [Full disclosure: I knew your wife Julie when she and I were working in Business Day newspaper. I don’t know if I ever meet you. I heard then you were spinning in behalf of then dictator Ferdinand Marcos’ very best spinmeister – Gregorio Cendana.]
P.S. I’d love to read your next spin on Noynoy. It’s highly entertaining.
Autism is not a disorder.
Let us hope those of you who think so, have a nerve of steel ,when divulge time of what it really is arrive!
Yes, Noynoy Aquino is one autistic among the tens of thousands around the globe.

Ms. Raisa you lost the cvc law debate hence you have no reason at all to make logical conclusions with Mr. Butch Del Castillo’s write ups regarding the autistic behavior of Noynoy abnoy. During the debate your grammar was not even good.
pinoy autistic says
noynoy is absolutely an ausistic gay.
I know because I am one. I have a crush on him.
Puro na lang Autism, Altruism na lang.
Sa ganang aking opinion, iyan (Altruism) ang sakit o kalakasan ni PNoy. Pamana ng Bayaning Ama at pabuya ng yumaong Presidenteng Ina.
hmm… you said you were speaking the truth? what gives you the abilty to know whats true or not? are you some sort of psychic or a seer?…reading through some of your articles here. its obvious youre just using your status as a journalist to show your own views and take on issues and protect your yellow bosses…. masyadong kang papapel………..wheres youre journalistic ethics?
status as a journalist?
What gives me the ability to know the truth?
Do you have one too?
This article is one hell of a proof that you are leaning towards the yellow mad dogs….. And you dare call yourself a journalist? For a price? hmmmm
I wonder how much you are paid per article…….
Just because I’m speaking the truth, you conclude i\’m leaning towards yellow. LOL.
The fact that you are wondering how much I’m paid, makes me suspect that you want to know because you want to compare it to how much you should be paid for writing comments such as these, eh, what.
No one can afford to pay me, that’s why I write for free. My price is US$1 TRILLION per article, if you want to know.
Finally, I was able to read in reverse to your first story-article archived in your website.
You’ve scored a lot of political stories and coverage since Nov 2009.
Good on ‘yaa.
Nice to recall some of the story lines that were picked up by the main stream online news websites. Sa iyo rin pala nangaling din.
If it wasn’t for the ABS-CBN news feature Web LINK in one of your recent articles, I wouldn’t have come across your other outstanding investigative pieces.
Cheers! And thank you for sharing your invaluable work for over 2 years now.
Thank you for reading.
Actually, my website crashed around this time last year. So many of my articles before the 2010 elections are not up yet. I’m still trying to reconstruct the links to them :)
No hurry please, knowing by now you are a busy person with a full time job and a family to look after too.
And this website of yours is but one too many that you find time to pamper.
I’m really impressed by your dedication and commitment.
Alan must be at times feeling jealous to compete with your other extra curricular activities.
Agyaman Ak Apo, Dakal Salamat keka. Taaa! (for thanks)
Alfonso Prado says
Whatever is true, but Noy’s “special” behavior was also repoerted by his Ateneo classmates.
That was black prop.
I checked. Here, read this –
Is Senator Noynoy Aquino really “Abnoy”?
PNoy haters continue to call President Aquino ‘Abnoy’
Juana Pag-asa says
Good job, Raissa! Your boss from Malacanang and a certain justice in the Supreme Court must be really proud of you! For that, you will surely get a bonus! Keep up the good job…who needs principles and conscience anyway?
Obviously you don’t.
The way you’re talking is the way you’re thinking for yourself, eh, what?
That’s really the way you are. Thinking everyone else is like you.

pinoy abnoy was indeed playing video games at the height of manila hostage crisis
Is that you Gary Olivar?
