Bobi Tiglao Slams UP VP Jose Dalisay for Comparing UP to Cambridge & Harvard as Being Recruiting Grounds for Communists

Veteran columnist and former diplomat Bobi Tiglao slams University of the Philippines Vice President for Public Affairs Jose Dalisay for comparing UP to Cambridge and Harvard when asked for allegations that UP is the recruiting ground for communists.



Bobi Tiglao slams UP VP Jose Dalisay for being a sloppy academic, spewing out data to impress people, but not understanding what these data mean.



The veteran columnist also noted that Dalisay can't see that communist or even Marxist agitators and intellectuals in those universities have long gone and only existed during the 1930s and 1960s. There is alsoo no equivalent of Kabataang Makabayan, Kabataan, Gabriela Anakpawis chapters in those schools.

Tiglao also noted that in the UK, US, and Canada, they don't have raging bloody communist insurgencies which recruit gullible youth from the universities-- as in the case of of UP in the Philippines.

Here's the Complete Statement of Bobi Tiglao:

WHY DO WE HAVE NAIVE AND SO IVORY-TOWER UP ACADEMICS EVEN A UNIVERSITY VICE-PREXY LIKE THIS?

If this is the kind of UP academics we have, patay ang kabataan natin. VP for public affairs Jose Dalisay is so much deluded in his ivory tower, that he is putty to Communist recruiters. In his reply to allegations that UP is the recruiting ground for communists, he compares UP to Cambridge and Harvard.



He's even a sloppy academic, spewing out data to impress people, but not understanding what these data mean.

Can't he see that communist or even Marxist agitators and intellectuals in those universities have long gone (1930s and 1960s pa)? And that there is no equivalent of Kabataang Makabayan, Kabataan, Gabriela, Anakpawis chapters in those schools.

More importantly, UK, US, and Canada don't have raging bloody communist insurgencies which recruit gullible youth from the universities-- as in the case of of UP in the Philippines. (When I was still enamored with Marxism, I attended a Seminar on Marxism in Harvard. 60 percent of its was mathematical!)

From Dalisay's recent speech --

"In other words, UP has attracted all kinds—communists and socialists, yes, but also capitalists, ultraconservative Catholics and born-again Christians, Rizalist cultists, military agents etc. etc.

And the same thing can be said of top global universities like Cambridge, which in the 1930s was home to what came to be known as the “Cambridge Five,” led by the top Soviet spy Kim Philby. Harvard’s Law School was said to be dominated by Left-leaning professors and students in the 1960s.... There’s a Communist Party of Canada Club at the University of Toronto, alongside an American Culture Club and a Chinese Christian Fellowship. Even Wharton has a Marx CafĂ©, an underground club of Marxist enthusiasts".



And BTW, the height of this supposedly academic's intellect is believing that the Philippines is a Star Wars world where there are Jedi Masters and SIth Lords. This academic argues through ad hominems and just calls those who disagree with him "lapdogs and apologists" -- his idol communist scourge Jose Ma. SIson's favorite terms.

From his speech:

"Some people I once respected and admired, even idolized, for their courage and commitment in fighting the dictatorship half a century ago are now among the most ardent and artful defenders of strongman rule, deploying their ample talents in the service of falsehood. Former comrades who once barked loudly against the Marcoses and were even imprisoned by them have now become their lapdogs, their apologists and strategists. Jedi Masters have become Sith Lords."

Dalisay should just stick to his poems and fiction.

(Trivia: If Imelda reputedly has 2,000 pairs of shoes; Dalisay boasts of his collection of 3,000 pens.)
