Duterte – The Worst Filipino President Ever?

President Rodrigo Duterte, the 16th President of the Philippines, has proven himself to be nothing short of a common thug. From insulting respected US politicians from Barrack Obama to John Kerry, to challenging China and most recently attacking the Rothschilds, Duterte has immeasurably disrupted the global order, and caused a resurgence of right-wing nationalism in South Asia, which mirrors the scary rise of the alt right in the West. Duterte has made bold claims about killing drug lords with his own two hands, and has effectively branded himself as a liberator, able to save the people from the clutches of the cartels. Like Trump, he has also used populist rhetoric for political gain, vowing to start putting the interests of the Philippines ahead of those of special interest groups, foreign powers and global institutions.

Like Trump, Duterte is a loose cannon. He blurts out whatever vulgarity is on his mind, has no sense of political correctness and pays no attention to the rules and standards of civility set by the accredited media. The following is just a short list of the horrific things he has said:

  • To Obama: “Who does he think he is? I am no American puppet. I am the president of a sovereign country and I am not answerable to anyone except the Filipino people, nobody but nobody. You must be respectful. Do not just throw questions. Son of a bitch I will swear at you in that forum”
  • To John Kerry: “he is okay, but I had an argument with their ambassador, that bakla (homosexual). Son of a bitch, he really annoys me.”
  • To Obama: “You can go to hell, I will buy weapons from Russia”
  • “[I will] eradicate all traces of Rothschild monetary criminality”

During his most recent controversy, he reportedly “joked” that his soldiers were allowed to “rape up to three women”, an appallingly sexist and unacceptable form of humor. In disgust, Chelsea Clinton immediately responded with the following tweet:

Duterte then replied with this appalling statement:

“These whores, they hear “rape”. Like, like Chelsea, she slammed me. I was not joking, I was being sarcastic. Listen to the speech. I do not laugh at my own jokes … I will tell her, when your father, the president of the United States, was f-ing Lewinsky and the girls in the White House, how did you feel? Did you slam your father?”

Comparing Bill Clinton’s minor mistake to his unacceptable rhetoric, is patently ridiculous, and an insult. He should apologize immediately to Chelsea for insulting her father. I hope that Duterte is aware that he is most likely talking to the future president of the United States.

I think it’s safe to say that Duterte is the worst Filipino President ever. Never before has a Filipino president been the subject of so much controversy in the accredited media. He is the subject of multiple headline articles per month in respected newspapers like the New York Times, the Guardian and the Washington Post, and has been a source of constant triggering for progressives. Not being white, it’s difficult to deal with him, because we can’t simply brand him as racist, although he is certainly sexist. It’s also difficult to sway popular opinion in the West about a foreign president who few people are interested in hearing about. Duterte has however developed a cult following, and his example sets a dangerous precedent for what is acceptable in political discourse, and therefore his image and legacy must be destroyed at all costs. If something unfortunate were to happen to him, let’s just say that from our perspective in the accredited media, it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world.

How dare he bully Chelsea Clinton – she has been through so much. It’s disgusting when powerful men antagonize vulnerable womyn.

Gosh these right-wing pigs are making the world an unhappy and noninclusive place. I’m glad that there are people like, Guinean, Abu Berete who are brave enough to stand up to these dictators and run against them in elections.

I’d arranged to meet Abu in Conakry, to help him campaign, but the fascists must have stopped him from getting there – so he sent his cousin to meet me. I wanted to start electioneering straight away but Abdoulaye thought it was best if we lay low for a bit and wait to hear from Abu.

Since I was going to be staying with Abdoulaye and his flatmates I thought I should offer to buy some food and drink for everyone. The boys said not to worry about food as they’d caught a monkey and had heaps of bushmeat (I’m not sure what they meant by this???) but they were keen for me to buy some Heineken. As it was hot and there were a few of us I used my credit-card and bought 10 boxes.

We went back to their place, I got drunk and used my white privilege to rape Abdoulaye and three of his flatmates. I must have a very nasty streak when I drink as this is not the first time that I’ve taken sexual advantage of oppressed people after drinking. I’m super ashamed of myself.

The next morning one of the flatmates sister and two of her friends came around. After finding out what I’d done they got really angry at me (I don’t blame them) and threw me out of the house.

As I now had nowhere to stay, no spare clothes (the Guinean girls rightfully took my luggage as some sort of reparation for my disgusting behavior) and I still hadn’t heard from Abu, I decided to come home.

I feel that I’ve let the people of Guinea down 🙁

Anyone who makes Trump look respectful by comparison is literally Hitler. Also, he can’t spell ‘Philipino’ right #itsnotspeltFilipino

How can this Duterte person even mention the name Chelsea Clinton without xis tongue exploding. Xi is the most amazing person to ever exist. Who can match xir accomplishments and xir savy. Xi was also raised by the most amazing accomplished people, ever, who have done wonderful things for everyone, especially the people who obey them. How could xi be anything other than spectacular. When I finally get my re-assignment surgery I’m going to make sure the doctors make me look just like xir.

Don’t worry, the new wave of ISIS attacks in his country is just a begining, it seems that recently many foreign tafkiris (Indonesians, Malaysians) stumbled upon wallets full of cash and were able to head to this country with sophisticated equipment/weapons. I know that this will give a bad name to the 10% peacefull muslims of the Philippines, but it looks as if Allah was punishing the ennemies of the United States systematically; the ISIS seems to be attracted like a magnet by those anti-US countries, so strange when you consider how the US leads the fight against those evil terrorists.
