“Pag sinabi yan ng National Youth Commission, gusto bang sabihin na yung gusto nating klaseng kabataang Pilipino, yung sunod-sunuran lang (When the National Youth Commission says [that], does that mean he wants our youth to be blind followers)?” Robredo asked. “Gusto ba natin ang kabataang Pilipino yung hindi nabibigyan ng boses para ipahayag yung kanyang paniniwala (Do we want a Filipino youth that doesn’t give voice to speak up for what they believe in)?”

The Vice president is referring to the statement given by Cardema the incumbent National Youth Commission when he said:
“As Chairman of the National Youth Commission, I am requesting our Head of Government, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, to issue an Executive Order removing the government scholarships of all anti-government scholars,” Cardema statement read.
“Specifically those students who are allied with the leftist CPP-NPA-NDF, a terrorist group that is trying to overthrow the Philippine Government and killing our government troops,” he added.
Vice President Robredo said that the environment for free speech should be where Filipinos are "free to air their beliefs and not afraid to say what their feelings are with a government ready to listen, even if what they [Filipinos] have to say are critical."
