Will "Noynoying" catch on or will it fizzle out? (Screenshot from "Noynoying" Facebook page)

 

InterAksyon.com reports that in lieu of planking, protesters are now into a (relatively) new protest move called "Noynoying." InterAksyon.com's Joseph Holandes Ubalde, in his article about this new phenomenon, describes it thus: "Named after President Benigno Aquino III, whose nickname is Noynoy, the new protest form involves a bit of play-acting since it requires people to pick a lazy or laidback pose and then act the same way in a parody of what activists say is the chief executive’s attitude towards incessant oil price hikes and other national problems."

 

Ubalde noted that, at first, Presidential Spokesperson Atty. Edwin Lacierda dismissed "Noynoying" as  "propaganda (that) will not sell to the public." However, on Friday, March 16, Presidential Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma said it was "degrading." Ubalde quoted Coloma, who explained, "In our view, this is highly inappropriate and we take vigorous exception to this. (Noynoying) is not attuned to the reality that is seen especially with regard to the President’s response to climate change and risk reduction."

 

Meanwhile, a "Noynoying" Facebook page is already up.

    @ tambay....

    maganda ang mga halimbawa mo at may punto ka.

    @ Juan....

    ok din naman ang gusto mo gawin ang lahat ng walang maistorbo at may respeto.

    ang pagpuna sa mga maling gawain ay masakit sa mga napupuna. Ito ang tunay na nangyayari kasi nga mali nila ang pinupuna. kahit gaano ka simple ang pagpunang gawin, lagi may masasaktan.

    Reminder ba yun pero walang respeto ... at pwede naman yung pagpapansin eh gawin sa tamang paraan hindi yung prang asong kahol ng kahol sa kalye walang pakialam sa mga naiistorbo nila ... kelangan pa ba ng halimbawa eh napaka creative nga ng mga tuktok nitong mga to sa pang-ga-g*g* ... Ang punto ko kse kaya naman pala magkaisa at magsama-sama bakit hindi gawin sa mabuting paraan at bumatikos sa makataong paraan ... At isa pa pala bamagat malayo pero ang pagbabago daw dapat nagsisimula sa sarili!!!

    Hindi ba mas maganda nga kung naipapakita natin sa protesta ang pagkakamali ng mga opisyales ng gobyerno? Kasi kung hindi natin sila papansinin, akala nila tama lang ang ginagawa nila. Kung sana sila mismo ay disiplinado at masipag, hindi ito kailangan kaya lang sila mismo ang nagbibigay ng dahilan upang mapuna sila. Minsan kailangan natin ng mga reminders. Halimbawa, pag may mabaho tayong naamoy ibig sabihin may basura, pag may langaw, ibig sabihin may dumi na nilalangaw. Pag may nagalit, ibig sabihin may mali kang nagawa. Kung may tambay, ibig sabihin walang magawa o may tamad. Iyon lang. mga reminders na nagpapakita na may hindi maganda. Parang ang noynoying, ibig sabihin may presidente na nagpakita ng impresyon na walang ginagawa.

    Mga taong puro ngawa lang ngawa kala mo naman sila meron nagagawa para sa bayan. Ang hirap sa tin puro tayo reklamo e yung pagwawala ng mga nagra-rally sa kalsada na nakakaistorbo sa traffic nakatulong ba eh nanggugulo lang kau mga hinayupak kayo ... Kung mag kaisa na lang kau para magtanim ng puno o kaya maglinis ng mga kanal at estero sa dami nyong yan nakatulong pa kayo ... Hindi kaya ng isang pangulo ... ng isang tao na ayusin ang buhay nyo sa dami ng problema na dapat unahin ... wag kayo puro asa mag trabaho din kayo mga t*ng* ... Sinisisi nyo sa iba yung mga kagaguhan nyo!!!

    The "Noynoying" pose is lame... perhaps if you open your mouth and drool, depend on the advice of others since you can't think for yourself, rely on character assassination against people who may be an obstacle to your plans and be somewhere else fun in the midst of a national crisis..then that would be closer to what is PNoy.

    So this is what we do now? We call each other insulting names kapag hindi nasunod ang gusto natin. Parang bata lang na nag-aaway. Very mature! And this helps how? other than make ourselves look like fools. Sad really. Sexual harassment, racism, now this. We stoop so low we are unrecognizable. If we want changes to happen, there are better ways.

    Ganito ang mga Pilipino. Pag may nakita sila na mali, hindi nila palalampasin. This is an evidence that we are not blind to what's happening around us.

    Wake up call ito sa Malacanang. Hindi naman ito maiisip ng mga tao kung walang nakita sa kanila. They are used to dismissing issues, and not doing something about it. Now, they thought this is humiliating. Is the very source of this "Noynoying" concept not humiliating?

    It's not "degrading" Penoy. It's "imitating" Penoy.
