Isabelle Duterte's debut photoshoot made out to be issue of national consequence by Yellowtards


The desperation for something about the Duterte administration to pick on is evident in the way "thought leaders" of the Opposition are now descending upon presidential daughter Isabelle Duterte who posed for photos in her debut outfit in Malacanang. Quite predictable too is how they'd zoom in on the use of what to the Yellowtards is the anti-sacred room where former President Ferdinand Marcos declared Martial Law in 1972 as the backdrop for one of the photos...


It's no wonder the administration of former President Benigno Simeon 'BS' Aquino III is regarded as the "showbiz government". Showbiz seems to consistently serve as the epicentre of much of Yellowtard rhetoric.

The fact is, these so-called "activists" who follow the cue of mainstream media who deemed this affair "newsworthy" to begin with are victims of their own imagination-deficited social justice warrioring. Media mileage whether good or bad is media mileage just the same. Whatever "outrage" stirred up by said "activists" becomes the object of adulation on the other side.

That's par for the course, of course, in a society of small minds that prefer a discussion on people and the minutiae of the irrelevant rather than around ideas.


For now, Isabelle is the non sequitur du jour of the Philippine Oppositions' brains trust. At least until the next issue of national consequence (by the standards of the small-minded) rounds the corner.
