Meanwhile, Duterte Youth Chairman Ronald Cardema, the apparent victim of Paredes’ bullying, in an interview with the People’s Television station, said: “Bakit kami matatakot? Kami ‘yung kabataang sumusuporta sa Pangulo ng Pilipinas.”

“Wala naman kaming sinusuportahang kriminal, drug lord o kahit anong terorista o armed group sa bansa. Ang sinusuportahan namin, Pangulo ng bansa. Kung may dapat matakot, si Jim Paredes ‘yun at ‘yung grupo niya dahil sa sa ginawa niya sa amin,” Cardema added.

Netizens acknowledged the Cardema’s response to the incident. He was also praised for composure during the confrontation with the singer.

    Jim
    keeps harping about the EJK or the people who died from drugs when his
    own mother was very much part of the LIGHT A FIRE MOVEMENT along w/
    Steve Psinakis. They were responsible for bombing different
    establishments here including the old
    Philippine Plaza where innocent people died. This was where Nonoy Zuñiga
    lost his leg! Guess who pardoned her mother when she got jailed?
    Cory… So how can he talk about killing the innocent when his own
    mother has blood on her hands!”

    Killer Duterte’s Youth should go back to church and hear Christ’s command “Do not murder”.

    Ano ang matutunan ng Duterte’s Youth, ang pagpatay ng walang awa ni Psycho Idioterte sa 8,000 Filipino?

    • Avatar-ako

      Angal ka ng angal sa mga namatay na 8,000 pilipino…Di ka naman umangal ng paging talamak ng droga sa pinas at ang mga nasirang maraming pamilya at kinabukasan…”Ang pagpatay ng alang awa ni Psycho Idioterte”? As in nakita mo? talaga lang ha? too much hate…..LOL

      • Yolanda Santos

        Galit ka sa mga durogista? Dapat magalit ka rin kay Idioterte, Paolo at Baste Idioterte dahil silang tatlo puro drug addicts.

  • Yolanda Santos

    Mabuhay ka Jim Paredes. You are a shining example in a country shrouded in darkness under Killer Idioterte and his conscienceless, brain-dead minions.

    • minorca heather lace

      • Yolanda Santos

        Shame on you, supporter of the mad killer of Filipinos – Idioterte. Do you have any conscience at all? Do you know that murdering people is criminal?

          Yoalnda Santos, di ganon kalinis ang mga Paredes, panahon ni Macoy nakulong nanay nyan, dahil sa pambobomba, pinalaya lang ni Cory, kaya malaki ang utang na loob nya sa mga dilaw.

  • Utot mo

    Intindihin nyo na lang po si Apo Jim, matanda na po siya, di na niya alam ang kanyang ginagawa.

  • Lunarequinox

    Has-been singer tweets EDSA is open for all not just yellows and then does this. Schizo siguro ang drama nya or na hack ang account nya? Hypocrites. Democracy is not exclusive only to the likes of Paredes.

  • Jojo

    I lost my respect to the one Jim Paredes… Sayang.. lumabas din ang totoong ugali nya
