Harry Roque judging the Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Grand Finals

Wazzup Pilipinas!

""Never thought judging Ms Universe Philippines would be this difficult! The Filipina, simply put, is the best!" the Presidential Spokesperson, who seems to have found time to judge a beauty pageant despite his busy schedule, said in a tweet."

The MUP Grand Finals has Harry Roque as one of the judges.

Why the fuck is Roque everywhere but where he’s supposed to be?

Never thought that the mouthpiece of the misogynist/sexist murderer inutile would be a judge in Miss Universe Philippines (MUP) 2020. Women empowerment left the room. 

Roque judging MUP means candidates who explicitly hold the current administration accountable are automatically barred from getting the crown. This is another form of fascism where the government tries to pacify everything including the pageantry.

Alam na natin kung sino mananalo. DDS Michelle Gumabao of Quezon City or Alaiza Malinao of Davao.

He, together with Eric Yap, like seriously? They are practically ruining a beautiful event with their presence. There are more capable personalities to be among the panel of judges.

Imagine Roque asking one of the contestants about their stand on current issues like the Manila Bay white "dolomite" synthetic sands and the contestant will say "It's a total nonsense to implement during the pandemic" 

And the MalacaƱang spokesperson will be like "wide-eyed but frowning"

I'm excited for questions about political stands and human rights. 

The Miss Universe Philippines will be thrilling to watch, after all.

Sa kung sino mang kandidata na makakakuha sa pangalan nina Harry Roque at Eric Yap, pagkakataon ninyo na ito. Ilaban ang mga Pilipinong ginago nila. Aim for the crown and morality in one fight.

Harry Roque's possible question and the kind of answer he is looking for.

What’s Harry Roque’s added value in the matter? Advocate ba siya ng mga Pinay women who are confidently beautiful with a heart? Parang hindi naman! He hates empowered women.

Individuals with official capacities should not be part of any other events that are not related to their posts. This is another disaster of the year 2020.

Imagine it's some of the judges that are the ones red tagging strong and empowered women. MUP, make it make sense please!

Are they're actually there to find another woman to red tag? (this statement is a joke)!

"Antonio Parlade Jr. going after outspoken women celebrities and beauty queens while no less than presidential spokesperson Harry Roque gets to have a say on the country's representative to an international beauty pageant says... a lot about this government's anti-women efforts.

Beauty pageants are still problematic institutions but they can be useful platforms to amplify advocacies and voices of dissent as we've seen with Catriona Gray and Pia Wurtzbach using their platforms to speak against the Anti-Terrorism Act. This macho-fascist regime fears that.

Having no less than the president's spokesman as judge sends a chilling effect in a pageant where women are encouraged to speak up—and it looks like an effort from this macho-fascist regime to ensure that the country's representative toes the line and is not a voice of dissent.

The military's empty platitudes about "protecting" women celebrities—while red-tagging them and sending veiled death threats against them—frankly reveals the military's patronizing and misogynistic view of women as individuals who can't speak, discern and speak up for themselves.

This macho-fascist regime wants to silence and scare women away from speaking up against an anti-woman and anti-people regime, its human rights abuses, and attacks on the people—but Catriona Gray has this to say: "Please don't ever allow your voice to be silenced." Abante, babae!" - @pmjamilla

So that's why we don't see Liza Soberano, Angel Locsin, Catriona Gray, Pia Wurztbach, etc. in the judges list. This is the first time that the MUP is a DDS-sponsored event. I guess it's safe to say that the organizers of the MUP are DDS too.

I bet naghahanap sila ng parang magiging spokesperson/kakampi nila na pleasing to the eye. Sa totoo lang ang papangit kasi nila at ang bobobo pa. Lol.

Don't go pointing a finger at us, KC Montero. We're not trying to ruin the MUP Grand Finals. The organizers did a very good job ruining it on their own.
