Now that Senator Bongbong Marcos is trying to milk the Star Wars movie “from the sands of Paoay to the moons (????) of Batac,” my hubby Alan came up with some interesting facts about Star Wars and the Marcoses.
Here they are:
1. The first Star Wars movie, A New Hope, was released in 1977. In August that year Imee Marcos’ guards kidnapped, tortured and killed 22 year old student Archimedes Trajano.
2. The third Star Wars movie, The Return of the Jedi, was released in 1983. In August that year, Ninoy Aquino was murdered by Marcos’ guards
MY NOTE: This is how Sen. Bongbong Marcos’ Star Wars propaganda should look like:
3. The latest Star Wars, The Force Awakens, had a marketing budget of US$423 million. The Marcoses are estimated to have stolen at least US$10 billion during the course of the Martial Law dictatorship
