To the haters of lawyer Trixie Cruz-Angeles, she has a question for you: ‘Are you prepared to make enemies?’

The dauntless lawyer was referring to the hate and criticisms that come with airing your opinion in public given that she herself has been at the receiving end of massive attacks since she started supporting President Rodrigo Dutere.


Cruz-Angeles, who defended the Manalos of Iglesia ni Cristo, said that the attacks are a means to “silence” those whose voices resonate. She considers the attacks which are mostly personal as ad hominem. “When you can’t beat the argument, beat the person,” she explained

In a Facebook status, Cruz-Angeles disclosed that she is already used to criticisms since she has been in public for a long time. It can be remembered that Cruz-Angeles was issued a three-year suspension from practice the Supreme Court in August last for charges files against her involving past clients.

“Kung lalaban ka, sa kahit anong arena, masasaktan ka. Mababato, matatamaan. Ganyan ang buhay. Ganyan ang labanan sa hukuman man o sa boksing. At minsan, kahit dayain ka, mananalo pa rin ang kalaban,” she elaborated.

“I am used to death threats,” said the intrepid lawyer who admitted that the legal profession is not survived without making enemies. As an closing statement, Cruz-Angeles said that she is prepared to make enemies and asked her detractors if the same is true for them.


Read full statement of Atty. Trixie Cruz-Angeles:

Once again, sinisiraan daw ako ng mga anonymous sites. Friends, ok lang yon. Bahagi yan ng pagsusulat at pagsasalita sa publiko. Dahil nangingibabaw ang isang boses, at minsan nakakasakit ito, gusto nilang patahimikin. At dahil wala silang argumento ang natitira na lang sa kanila, ay ang manira ng tao.

Ang tawag dito, argumentum ad hominem. When you can't beat the argument, beat up the person. So to speak.

Kaya po anonymous and mga mahilig tumirada sa mga perceived supporters ng administrasyon, kasi meron silang tinatagong kasalanan na ayaw nilang malaman natin.

Pero linawin natin. Oo suspendido ako. Pero hindi malpractice. At hindi na po ito balita. Na cover ito ng lahat ng major newspapers at major broadcast networks at nakisali pa ang ilang tabloid EARLY LAST YEAR. Kung ngayon lang nila pinagsasabi yan, maliwanag na may agenda sila. Nakapublish din ang desisyon ng Korte Suprema. At oy, it was for a delay, not about money. Tsura nyo ha.

Kinahihiya ko ba ito? Hindi.

Kung lalaban ka, sa kahit anong arena, masasaktan ka. Mababato, matatamaan. Ganyan ang buhay. Ganyan ang labanan sa hukuman man o sa boksing. At minsan, kahit dayain ka, mananalo pa rin ang kalaban.


Bawal ang pikon.

Pero kung iniisip ng mga bumabatikos sa akin na kahihiyan ko ito, nagakamali sila. Kampante ako sa track record ko. At marami akong natulungan. Oo, tumutulong ako, nuon pa man. Yan ang dahilan kung bakit ko pinasok ang ganitong buhay. Sanay ako sa death threats. Sanay din akong sinisiraan. Walang nakakalusot sa ganitong propesyon ng walang kaaway. At matindi ang mga kinalaban ko.


Kaya ko. Kaya kaya nila?
