MANILA, Philippines - Senator Tito Sotto, who has been accused of plagiarism, copied someone elses speech in the last part of his "turno en contra" privilege against the reproductive health (RH) bill on Wednesday.
In a post from twitter, Michel Eldiy bashed out Sotto on his translated speech originally delivered by the late US Senator Robert F. Kennedy.
Michel was triggered to make google searches due to what she claimed an awkward translationn of something originally in English. Below is the photo of Michel Eldiy's post.
Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history
of this generation.
It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped.
Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other
from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
Iilan ang magiging dakila sa pagbali ng kasaysayan, subalit bawat isa sa atin ay maaaring kumilos, gaano man kaliit, para ibahin ang takbo ng mga pangyayari. Kapag pinagsama-sama ang ating munting pagkilos, makalilikha tayo ng totalidad na magmamarka sa kabuuan ng kasaysayan ng henerasyong ito. Ang mga hindi-mabilang na iba't ibang galaw ng katapangan at paninindigan ang humuhubog sa kasaysayan ng sangkatauhan. Tuwing naninindigan tayo para sa isang paniniwala, tuwing kumikilos
tayo para mapabuti ang buhay ng iba, tuwing nilalabanan natin ang kawalan ng katarungan, nakalilikha tayo ng maliliit na galaw. Kapag nagkasama-sama ang mumunting galaw na mga ito, bubuo ito ng isang malakas na puwersang kayang magpabagsak maging ng pinakamatatag na dingding ng opresyon.
Sotto's speech is against the RH bill, which seeks to provide universal access to maternal care, sexual education, contraception, and fertility control for couples in the country.
Sotto said the last part of his "turno en contra" speech on Wednesday is in Filipino to fend off plagiarism accusations.
He told Sen. Jinggoy Estrada that his speech Wednesday was entirely his.
"A oo. Baka ho na naman imbes na sagutin nila yung mga sinabi ko baka daanin na naman sa plagiarism o pinlagiarism yung mga isyu kaya ko ho Tinagalog. Kaya Pilipino na ginamit ko para hindi na magbintang itong kung sino-sino," he said.
He said he did not use a disclaimer except for material wherein he clearly cited the authors. “Except dun sa mga binanggit ko, galing sa akin ito,” Sotto said.
He only laughed off the allegation that he copied from a Kennedy original.
"Marunong pala managalog si Kennedy ha," he said.
"Sino ngayon ang kinopyahan ko na Tagalog? Meron ba silang alam na pinanggalingan na tagalog nun?" he asked.
Sotto said he wasn't aware the passages came from a Kennedy speech.
He said a friend texted it to him, and then he had it translated.
Kennedy, brother of late US President John F. Kennedy, delivered his "Day of Affirmation" speech in post-colonial South Africa in June 6, 1966, according to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum.
Kennedy discussed individual liberty, apartheid, and civil rights in his speech. The audio of his speech is available here.
Recently, Senator Juan Ponce Enrile came up to an idea of having a Philippine blogging law due to 'cyber bullying' of Senator Tito Sotto when the latter allegedly plagiarized the works of the US blogger Sarah Pope.
