Harry Potter is Noynoy Aquino

What an interesting plot this story-in-the-making which is Philippines Elections 2010 has turned into now that the son of modern day hero and heroine has finally decided to join the race for the presidency.

Harry Potter is Noynoy

In so short a time, the quiet Senator Noynoy Aquino was transformed into a national sensation and as a strong contender versus the Death Eaters and the Dark Lady currently occupying the Palace.  Noynoy is now seen as ‘the boy who lived’ being the only son of the martyred Senator Benigno Aquino Jr. and former President Corazon Aquino.  He is looked upon as someone who can bring back the rule of law, decency and pride in government service.

Hmm. Difficult. Very difficult. Plenty of courage, I see. Not a bad mind either. There’s talent, oh my goodness, yes – and a nice thirst to prove yourself, now that’s interesting… So where shall I put you?” —Sorting Hat to Harry Potter

The factotums in the Palace question Noynoy’s ability and capacity to lead, dishing out trash like Noynoy’s career as a lawmaker was dismal and unremarkable.  But to many people, Noynoy is destined to be President of this country, like his mother was.  Recent survey and actual show of support for Noynoy as President show that Cory’s Magic is still a very much evident and powerful force that can unite the good forces against the evil one.

Ron: “We’re nearly there. Let me think — let me think… Yes…it’s the only way … I’ve got to be taken.

Harry and Hermione: “NO!

Ron: “That’s chess! You’ve got to make some sacrifices! I take one step forward and she’ll take me — that leaves you free to checkmate the king, Harry!” — Ron sacrifices himself in Wizard Chess

Hermione and Ron is Mar and Korina

Taking up the role of Harry Potter’s bestfriend Ron Weasly is the admirable, intelligent and courageous Senator Manuel “Mar” Roxas II.  When he relinquished party nomination as standard bearer, he said:  “Noynoy Aquino and I share the outrage in the mess we are all in. I want to make a difference…I am the president of the Liberal party. It is within my power to preside over a potentially divisive process or to make the party a bridge for the forces of change.” 

Time is short, and unless the few of us who know the truth stand united, there is no hope for any of us.” —Albus Dumbledore after the return of Lord Voldemort

The Mentors
Former Senate President Jovito Salonga is the Great Wizard Albus Dumbledore. “Dumbledore is a great wizard. Only a fool would question it”

To say that ours is a very interesting time is an understatement.  It is up to each of us to choose from which side of history we want to be in.  Do you want to be a Death Eater or do you want to be part of the Order of the Phoenix?  You have to make a choice.

Every great wizard in history has started out as nothing more than what we are now: students.  If they can do it, why not us?” – Harry Potter as they formed the Dumbledore’s Army

    LOLz. I am averse to framing the next election as another edition of Good-versus-Evil but I’m afraid it is shaping up that way. Nice read notty. :))

      Thanks O! if you wish, you can frame it anyway you like: good, better, best; crooked or straight; progressive or reactionary; liberal or nationalist. what matters most is that we know what we want and we will stand up for it! ryt o?

    Very very nice article Notty! 🙂 And I am actually shocked with the blatant similarities of the story plot. So ikaw, would you remain a muggle or embrace your true calling as a wizard? Hehehe.

    Answer to SPOT THE SIMILARITIES is easy: ALL except that Voldemort has his WAND, and Gloria has her MOLE.

    Galing mo talaga! LOL-able!

    Sobrang cheesy. Insulting to Harry Potter because he was not born to riches and had to face obstacles to reach his goals.

    • notty279 says:

      on the contrary,

      when Harry’s parents were murdered by Lord Voldemort, they left behind a somewhat large savings account in vault 687 of Gringotts Wizarding Bank. This inheritance became Harry’s source of funding for all his Hogwarts textbooks, wizarding clothes, and spending money

      although noynoy’s obstacles were lesser compared to the fictional life of harry potter, the obstacles ARE still there. 🙂

      thanks for your comment though!
