La Salle prof slams Agot in wake of “go see a psychiatrist post”, lectures actress on international relations

After telling Duterte to see a psychiatrist, actress Agot Isidro has been subjected to name calling and lately, free lecture on political literacy?

The tongue lashing and trash talking are so bad that the opinionated and tough actress was forced to change the privacy setting of her twitter account from public to protected.

In fairness to the actress, she has been receiving words of encouragement from netizens who shares her sentiment.

However, fellow actress Elizabeth Oropesa disagrees with Ms. Agot Isidro and takes a dig at the latter with her own trending post. Check it here.

But wait! If Agot Isidro thinks the heat from the Duterte supporter is slowly dissipating, then she’s wrong.

Political Science professor Dr. Antonio Contreras of De La Salle University has something to add in regards to the Agot Isidro brouhaha.

In a Facebook post, Dr. Contreras gave the actress a brief lecture about international relations for free. He even offered the actress a generous offer for a free consultation on political literacy. Check out the full text of the post below.

Agot Isidro should be ashamed of herself. What she said is precisely what happens when you become mendicant. You think heavens will fall and we will all get hungry just because the US and the EU are pissed off.

Let me educate you Ms. Isidro. International relations is not as simple as you think it is. Countries do not behave like the soap opera characters you play where a bitchiness of one leads to a catfight or a fistfight.
It is not what leaders say that matters. It is what is in their country’s best interests.

You say we are not a superpower? My dear, we may not be but we are strategically located that countries like China and the US would like to have a piece of us. Yes, Ms. Isidro. We have what many want except that we have been so effing loyal to the US even if it treats us badly in many agreements. It’s about time we have to tell the US to treat us right since there are others ready and willing to take its place.
So before you even try ranting, read first. Okay.

By the way, I am a political scientist. You may want to have a one-on-one with me on political literacy. You badly need it. You seem to be ignorant of the nuances of politics and IR. Don’t worry, I will not charge you for consultation. I will do it pro bono for the love of country.

What is your take on the issue?
