International trade expert MJ Reyes takes a stab at so-called activist & pro-Duterte bloggers, says nothing wrong with being an activist but…

Senator Ping Lacson commented that he sees nothing wrong students joining Anakbayan or Kabataan partylist.

Lacson was reacting to the proposal of DILG Secretary Eduardo Año of the revival of the anti-subversion law to counter the communist organizations to recruit university students and make them a rebel. [Link here]

International commodities trade expert MJ Quiambao Reyes also seems to agree with Lacson.

Reyes said that being an activist isn’t bad.

In fact, she confessed, she was once an activist but quick to point out that activism is bad if and when it involves meets the conditions she cited below.

For example, when an activist join rallies funded by groups involved in destabilization plots to oust a legitimate government so that they can reclaim lost power.

Meanwhile, Reyes also took a jab at pro-Duterte bloggers who used their influence to take advantage of gullible Duterte supporters by asking money from them.

Reyes ended the post by sharing a piece of advice to so-called activist and pro-Duterte bloggers, “Pwede ba, magpakatotoo nga kayo at magsipag-banat ng buto.”

WALANG MASAMA SA PAGIGING AKTIBISTA.

PERO WAG KA–

1. Kung nag-o-organize ka o sumasali sa mga rallies na pinopondohan ng mga grupong nais magpabagsak ng gobyerno upang makabalik sila sa puwesto at maprotektahan ang kani-kanilang business interests, hindi ka aktibista! Isa ka lang bayarang raliyista o tangang nagpapagamit sa mga buwaya.

2. Kung ikaw ay miyembro ng Kongreso at parte ng gobyerno na sumusweldo at tumatanggap ng pampublikong pondo pero ginagamit mo ang iyong kapangyarihan at resources ng bayan para palakasin ang puwersa ng mga terorista, hindi ka aktibista! Isa ka’ng traidor at oportunista–at mas masahol pa sa terorista!

3. Kung isa ka’ng mamahayag sa TV, radio, print, o social media pero walang habas ang pagkontra mo sa gobyerno at paglabas ng mga fake news kapalit ng milyon milyong investment o donation from foreign entities o pabor mula sa mga politicians o oligarkiya, hindi ka aktibista! Isa ka lang bayaran at walang konsensyang propagandista!

I’ve been an activist myself for the longest time and it pains me that the words activist and activism have been corrupted and bastardized.

Ang tunay at totoong aktibista ay ma-prinsipyo at hindi nagpapabayad habang buong puso at buong tapang na nagsusulong ng mga makabuluhang social at political reforms.

Tigilan nyo nga ang pag-gamit ng katagang aktibista at huwag magtago sa likod ng doktrina o pagka-makabayan kung isang malaking raket o pangkabuhayan showcase lang naman ang lahat ng ito sa inyo.

In the same manner, huwag ding gamitin ang pagiging pro-admin o ang inyong social media influence para manggantso! Otherwise, you’re no better than the terrorists and all these yellow & black propagandists!

Pwede ba, magpakatotoo nga kayo at magsipag-banat ng buto.
