1.) use a bombastic title sure to arouse controversy, for example, "I HATE FILIPINO CULTURE;" just be sure to take back your words in the actual post. "i don't actually hate filipino culture. what i really meant to say was..."
2.) gather up a bunch of the worst stereotypes you can think of and condemn the hell out of them. who'd disagree?
3.) preface everything. for example, every elitist remark should begin with, "i'm no elitist, but..." do the same for all your colonial mentalitist and other -ist statements.
4.) don't be afraid to fudge your definitions. after slamming "filipino culture," later describe said culture as "not filipino culture."
5.) make things easy on your reader. who needs nuanced arguments when emotional appeals are so much easier to read and like and share?
6.) open the post with a lot of "them," but close with a lot of "we."
7.) above all, ignore the fact that you are a product of filipino culture.
