La Salle professor defends declaration of “state of lawlessness”, slams critics belittling threats of terrorism

A post slamming a Duterte critic for criticizing the logic behind the declaration of a national state of lawlessness when the bombing occurred only in Davao is making the rounds online.

Dela Salle political science professor, Dr. Antonio Contreras took to Facebook to reprimand an unnamed Duterte critic for his shortsightedness in seeing the trees and not the forest relative to the enormity of the threats of terrorism in the country.

In the post, Dr. Contreras of Dela Salle can’t help but make a comment that “too much partisanship can really dumb people down. And yes, too much reading of imaginative writing of some Martial Law critics can make people be, what can I say, too imaginative?”

Check out the full text of the post below.

Oh. There is this guy who questions the logic as to why PDu30 declares a national state of lawlessness when the bombing occurred only in Davao. Then, follow this by stating that this is a prelude to Martial Law.

Like I said, the political war has begun to escalate in the sense that I anticipated that the anti-Duterte groups will seize on this as their opportunity to cast the specter of Martial Law, the same bogey they have been using for the past three decades.

These critics belittle the threats of terrorism, thinking that it can be contained only in one city, clueless to the fact that as we speak sleepers are already being awakened in other parts of the country. If we follow their idiotic logic, ISIS should have just remained in the Levant, and 9-11 would not have happened earlier as Osama-bin-Laden would have been confined only in his cave.

Too much partisanship can really dumb people down. And yes, too much reading of imaginative writing of some Martial Law critics can make people be, what can I say, too imaginative?
