Manila, Philippines - Teddy Casiño a former Bayan Muna Representative was upset about the recent attack by DDS writers  Krizette Laureta Chu, Arleen Medina and others, for accusing him of being fake and hypocrite communist.

Chu recently posted online photos of Casiño's wife and his son being a student of La Salle Greehills, she said:

"Teddy Casino yaks about activism in schools (not terrorism daw, may pinaglalaban Lang naman daw yung mga bata) while his kids go to LA SALLE. Ipokrito."

"If you want to walk your talk, paaralin mo sa Lumad schools yung mga anak mo leche ka. Ipa immersion mo sa bundok Yang mga yan." Chu said.

This irked Casiño, and asked his critics to pick a fight with him on his alleged hypocrisy instead of involving his family on the issue.

“Don’t use my family to get back at me. By ridiculing their pictures and posts in your social media accounts, you are putting them in danger of being bullied online or even physically harmed. They are private persons. You have a beef with me, stick with me,” Casiño said.

On the allegations that he was a hypocrite and a fake communist, saying sending kids to a good school does not make a person any less an activist as the others, Casiño slammed these accusations thru his twitter post, he said...

“Some of you are calling me a hypocrite and ‘fake’ communist because me and my sons are not NPA fighters. Would you rather that we become NPAs and ‘genuine’ communists? Yeah, right,” 

He also answered the fact that he send his son to a prestigious university but by someone's genirosity, who offered to pay for his son's tuition because that someone believes his son deserve a better education.

“By myself, I cannot afford to send my son to LSGH. The only reason he is there is because someone who believes my son deserves the same education I got is footing the bill,” he said.

He also called it stupid to send his sons to a lumad school in Mindanao simply because “they are not lumad.”

Lastly, he said, it is not his style to dictate his children's future and he would not force them to be an activist but he would rather give them the freedom to choose on how and what direction they want for their own lives.
