I didn’t plagiarize, says Sotto

 

Manila, Philippines – I did not copy it, I translated it.

Senate Majority Leader Vicente Sotto III stressed this to rebut allegations that he again committed plagiarism in his speeches against the controversial reproductive health (RH) bill pending on the Senate floor since last year.

After having been accused of plagiarism by Sarah Pope, an American blogger, critics again charged that Sotto plagiarized the speech of the late US Sen. Robert Kennedy.

In his “turno en contra” speech last week, Sotto translated into Pilipino three paragraphs of the Kennedy speech. “The people who think this is plagiarism should think again. I did not copy it,. I translated it. Do they know the spelling of `copy’ and “translate” Mahina toktok nila (they have low IQ),” he said. (Mario B. Casayuran)

    Listen to the message of Sen.Sotto at hindi puro pagbatikos na lang.

    • david laxa

      tama! Mensahe ang dapat iniintindi ng tao hindi ang paghahanap ng masasabing hindi maganda kay Sen.Sotto.

  • Rofolfo

    I suport sen.sotto because I am pro life. I am anti rh bill.

    nnnYes, tito Sotto is a comedian but when he isnworking at the senate he is a serious person and a devoted person.n

  • eleonorcastro007

    Walang mangyayari sa atin kung puro paninira na lang. Mas magiging makabuluhan pa kung pagtutuunan ng pansin ang RH bill.

    • jim

      Tama! hindi yung usapang paninira lang ang lahat. Dapat talakayin ang RH Bill hindi yung ganyan!

  • eleonorcastro007

    Mabuti na yung katulad ni sen sotto na may paninindigan. Tama nga kahit na personal na ang pambabatikos sa kanya ay tuloy pa rin ang pakikipaglaban niya dahil totoong iniisip niya ang kapakanan natin lalo na ng mga kababaihan. Tuloy mo lang ang laban sen sotto.

    • Dragon

      Nakakaawa ka naman…. :( Paninindigan na mali?! Kaya tayo ganito kahirap dahil sa isip na tulad ng sa yo…

    • brandon pablo

      Kaya tayo ganto kahirap dahil sa mga pag iisip ng mga tao katulad mo, ang hihina umintindi sa mga gustong iparating ni Sen.Sotto, puro paninira at panghuhusga lang ang kayang gawin para sa kapwa.

  • Dragon

    Di po ang RH Bill ang in question dito… ang integridad ni Sotto.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/MRKABSSQTBHABKQF2M4DMPR4CU Jhon

      I think na sagot naman na ni Sotto ang plagiarism issue na binabato sa kanya,sarado lang ang pag-iisip ng iba kaya pinipilit na Tito sen. did plagiarist but in fact he did not.

    • http://twitter.com/Phoebe_Estrada Phoebe Estrada

      Eh bakit po ba nakwestiyon ang integridd niya? Dahil nagplagiarize nga daw siya para sa anti-RH Bill speech niya! E bakit siii Senator Pia Cayetano na pro-RH Bill, NAGPLAGIARIZE DIN, pero hindi naman binabatikos ng ganito! Umamin na kayo, ayaw niyo lang ng RH Bill, kaya pati ang mga taong tumutuligsa dito, parang gusto niyo na ring yurakan ang pagkatao! And, I tell you, that’s not a fair play!

  • halleguevarra

    tito sen kaya mo ang lahat ng pagsubok na ito!kaya aja!senator sotto! ipaglaban at panindigan ang tama!

  • jonathan ramirez

    tama tito sen mahina ang mga tuktok ng mga taong di marunong umintindi ng speech mo!

  • kimeberly sayat

  • http://www.facebook.com/alvin.sison.568 Alvin Sison

    The contents of the speech made by Senator Sotto must be given emphasis because it will reveal the true intentions of the people behind the RH bill…plagiarism is really not an issue here..

    • harold abner

      I agree! People are throwing accusation to Sen.Sottonbecause He is fighting for what is right, He is fighting against RH bill whichnis right. I support Sen.Sotto!

  • Laarni Gulapa

    • jim

      Pare parehas tayong walang makikinabang pag nagkataon. Kung san na kasi dinadala ang issue.

  • Joel dela Pena

  • James Salvador

  • Mac Mac Hontiveros

    Tito Sotto follow your good heart huwag mo nalang panisinin yung mga taong walang silbi sa mundo.

    • luu

      Tama! walang mali sa ipinaglalaban mo.

  • Jason Fuentes

    Makinig nalang tayo kay Sen. Sotto hindi yung bantay salakay palagi itong mga PRO RH na to kapag mag speech.

  • Manuel Munoz

    Hindi matapos tapos ang issue na to nakakabingi na!

    • luu

      Pano kung san san na dinadala ang issue. imbes na RH bill ang tinatalakay mas binibigyan ng oras ang paninira kay Sotto

  • Joel Habaya

    No to RH bill. Sen. Sotto fight for the right.

  • heartmercado27

    let’s focus on the main issue which is the RH Bill. tama na ang mga npatutsada since both parties have already committed same mistake of nplagiarizing. Cayetano committed same case but it never exceeded this nfar. Instead of addressing all the points being raised by the senator n(which obviously the pro rh can’t counteract) they are too busy narguing against his personal issues.

    • luu

      Yes! stop that plagiarism issue. Hindi naman yan ang dapat na pinoproblema ee.

  • http://www.facebook.com/mia.esteve.7 Mia Esteve

    Diversion ang nangyayari dito!Why dont we get back to the game and the players, ika nga.Some pople just focus much on a meaningless issue rather than oppose for the bill. Isn’t what this battle should be based on?Tsk! kaya di tayo umuunlad

    • rex balad

      right! RH bill naman talaga ang usapin dito hindi ang paninira sa mga taong kumakalaban dito.

    • luu

      oo nga. delaying tactics lang yan ng mga kalaban!

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/CXLHVVIYRIWGIHVDBZIDP6F6UM Antonio

      Tama! mga oa na reaksyon ng mga tao kaya nadadivert ang issue. RH Bill naman kasi dapat ang inuuna kesa sa iba pang mga issue.

    • jim

      Oo nga! hindi naman nakatulong yung mga reaksyon ng mga tao. Hindi naman kasi dapat maipasa ang RH Bill

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/PQST6VXXSB5UEN6NPCGK6HUXKA Reps

    Maganda kasi ang pinaglalaban ni Sotto kontra Rh bill kaya laging hinahanap ng pagkakamali sya para matakpan ang kanyang magandang hangarin.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/MRKABSSQTBHABKQF2M4DMPR4CU Jhon

    Hindi lang naman si Sotto ang may issue sa plagiarism kahit nga si Cayetano meron,pero pinapalaki ang tungkol kay Sotto kasi he is a good defender against Rh bill.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/IFQFNCLJ4C3LHJKNXRP75VGEMU John Y

      ang pagkaiba sa kanila: si cayetano nag cite kaagad dahil narerespeto niya source niya, habang si sotto patuloy pa rin ang pagkita ng kanyang pag-abuso ng posisyon bilang senador upang pilitin sa iba na tama lahat ng ginagawa niya. binastos niya ang mga kinopyahan niya at sinasabi pa rin niya na walang siyang ginagawang mali. bakit nagrereklamo ang academic community laban sa kanya kung talagang wala siyang ginawang mali?

  • Jan_Yu

    Sa tingin ko nagkaroon lamang ng teknikal na pagkakamali. Sinabi niya na itinext lamang ang bahaging iyon sa kanya at nagandahan naman siya kaya’t sinali niya sa kanyang speech. Hindi naman niya inaangkin yun na kanya. Tama na ang plagiarism na yan, sa RH BILL naman tayo! Huwag na itong ipasa dahil hindi na natin ito kailangan. Pag tuunan ng pansin ang kasalukuyang batas para sa RH at i- implement ng maayos.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/IFQFNCLJ4C3LHJKNXRP75VGEMU John Y

      sorry pero sabi na ni sotto sa kanya na ang speech

    Tanungin nyo nga mga sarili nyo…ilan ba sa inyo ang gumagamit ng contraceptive? Lagi kayo oppose sa RH Bill e kayo nga di sumusunod sa ipinaglalaban nyong mga oppose sa RH Bill. Ni minsan ba di kayo gumamit ng contraceptive? E baka nga mas madalas pa kayo gumamit nun kese calendar method no.

  • joanne velasco

    Tigilan na ang siraan at tutukan ang tunay na isyu. Hindi maiaalis na totoo ang ipinaglalaban ngayon ni Sen. Sotto dahil sa natatanggap nyang kritisismo.

    And yet another “bashing hit”! THEY JUST CAN’T GET ENOUGH! Again, may I reiterate to everyone that Tito Sen, no matter how many times you put him down, would always fight for what’s right! nnnRH Bill isn’t a necessity, but will only be a cause IMMORALITY! Imagine; free condoms and contraceptives offered to a free-willed community, with some people who couldn’t even afford to go to school and couldn’t even read nor write! What do you think will happen? Shouldn’t the government prioritize education first?nnn As if condoms and the like can save people from poverty! Yes, it guarantees us to lesser population, but not progress! May mga mag-asawa ngang iisa lang ang anak, nahihirapan pa sa pamumuhay eh! n

      pero wag na mag copy sa ibang authors marami kasi na-inggit ,kasi sila rin gusto mag copy kaya lang hindi nila magawa kasi hindi sila marunung mag apply hehe

    • Lynyrd Andres

      No amount of education programs will suffice if our government doesn’t have enough resources to educate MILLIONS of uneducated children whose parents are slumped in poverty. I’ll give you a comparison. If you have 5 loaves of bread to feed thousands of hungry people, would that be enough? Unless you have some sort of magical powers, I think we all agree that the answer is a no. Same principle with how our government runs.

      Perhaps you should try looking at the bigger picture.

    • canarinta

      Yet another idiot running their mouth, not looking at the bigger picture.

    • Roy Valenzuela

      The RH bill isn’t a necessity, wait, hear me out first, it’s one of the many ways to jump start our country’s progress from being a 3rd world conservative nation into a economical tiger who addresses their minorities’ problems. Sure we need better bills that’ll help our education but at the moment this is the best we have, and maybe the best those senators in their high chairs can come up with. And if you read the bill, you should know that it isn’t just about contraceptives..

  • mariatiu89

    It is such a pity for most pinoy netizens have picked up on this side issue. The salient points presented in Sen. Sotto’s speech should be the focus- after all, this will greatly affect our nation. Let’s show the young generation that we should focus more on what’s most important- the bill, not the personal affiliation of a person

    Ano ba topic dito Plagiarism or RH Bill? Ha ha.. Ang pagtranslate ng speech ng iba ay maliwanag na PLAGIARISM…

  • devilsadvocateph

    Oh dear. Ang ibang nagcocomment dito hindi alam ang totoong kahulugan ng plagiarism. Pity on you. Nakapasa ba kayo sa thesis niyo nung college?

    Kailangan bang mangopya ni Sotto para isulong ang pagtututol niya sa RH Bill? Hindi. Hindi lang siya marunong gumawa ng sarili niyang speech.
