Filipino President Actually Quite Reasonable (vid)

Clickbate and the rest of the fake news would have you believe that the Philippine President Duterte is absolutely out of his mind insane, not to be taken seriously. But as you can see in this alt-media interview where he gets to speak his mind freely, he is actually quite reasonable and is looking out for his people.

Yea, im sure he has his broght points...its the whole murder people thing that kind of raises eyebrows.

"Just because you're a journalist you are not exempted from assassination if you're a son of a bitch". - Totally Reasonable President Dudebro

CavemanDave - Yea, im sure he has his broght points...its the whole murder people thing that kind of raises eyebrows.

He explains this precisely in non-clickbate form.

Yeah, who needs due process? That stuff is for Banana Republics! 

-Quite reasonable president Rodrigo Duterte

I can't tell if Moke is saying this tongue-in-cheek or if he is batshit insane himself.

You guys obviously didn't watch the video or are only cherry picking what you want to hear.

PoiuPoiu - 


he still has over 75% support in his country



Considering his war on drugs and the fact that his political opponents and journalists critical of him conveniently end up with ties to drug dealers, I'm honestly surprised the "support" isn't higher.  Expect the 25% of those polled to develop ties to drug dealers soon.

Fyuk Yu -

He supports killing George Soros and has put a bounty on his head.   That alone is enough to like him.

Really? Well I'm beginning to really really like the guy. And no I don't blame him for becoming friends with Russia. I'm not sure how his China alliance will work out though, since China wants to claim much of his waters in the long run.

A man who says things, means things, and does things, and doesn't fuck around worrying what some SJW will think.

American and Europe both need more men like him.

Yea, the world needs more leaders who employ death squads and extrajudicial killings. Totally.

Tomato Can - Yea, the world needs more leaders who employ death squads and extrajudicial killings. Totally.
He said to arrest the drug dealers, but if they resist and fight and put police lives in danger, go ahead and kill them and don't worry about any stupid SJW bullshit afterwards.

How does that equate to death squad in your world?

Witness lists killings allegedly 'ordered by Duterte'

Edgar Matobato, a self-confessed former member of the Davao Death Squad, links President Rodrigo Duterte and Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte to several killings in previous years

DUTERTE'S ORDERS. Edgar Matobato mentions during the Senate hearing on September 15 various killings allegedly ordered by President Rodrigo Duterte and Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte.

MANILA, Philippines – Even when he was still mayor of Davao City, President Rodrigo Duterte was at the receiving end of allegations pertaining to violations of human rights.
He has long been linked to the infamous Davao Death Squad (DDS), a vigilante group alleged to be behind the extrajudicial killings in Davao City.

On Thursday, September 15, Edgar Matobato, a self-confessed former member of the DDS, surfaced before a Senate hearing and claimed that Duterte and his son, Davao Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte, were behind some of the killings.

The elder Duterte was Davao mayor for 21 years, serving for 3 three-term periods – from 1988 to 1998, 2001 to 2010, and 2013 to 2016. From 1998 to 2001, he served as the city’s 1st district representative. He was also vice mayor to his daughter, Sara Duterte, from 2010 to 2013.

During the Senate hearing, Matobato enumerated a series of incidents. Here they are in timeline format.

1993
A series of grenade blasts took place in some mosques in Davao City, after a deadly blast outside the San Pedro Cathedral, also known as the Davao Cathedral. (READ: A history of bombings in Davao City)

Matobato claimed that the bombing of mosques was ordered by then mayor Duterte. Matobato said that he himself threw the grenade at the Bangkerohan Mosque. Nobody was hurt in these incidents, he added.

A religious leader identified as Jun Barsabal, who was arrested in Samal island, was ordered killed for grabbing and squatting on lands in Davao. Matobato claimed that 5 mayors, including then-mayor Duterte, “plotted” the operation to kill Barsabal.

2002
A certain “Sali Makdum,” supposedly a suspected terrorist, was ordered killed by Duterte. Matobato said the group kidnapped Makdum and chopped him to pieces. He also claimed that Philippine National Police chief Ronald dela Rosa knew about this operation, as he was the chief of Davao City's Presidential Anti-Organized Crime Task Force (PAOCTF).

Senator Panfilo Lacson questioned Matobato’s claim, pointing out that the PAOCTF was abolished in 2001.

2003
Radio broadcaster Jun Pala was gunned down by unknown men aboard a motorcycle. President Duterte ordered his killing, according to Matobato. He and Duterte had once been friends but had a falling out; Duterte would later say that Pala deserved assassination.

2007
A suspect was arrested in Sarangani, brought to Bgy Kapatagan in Digos, Davao del Sur, and supposedly “fed to crocodiles.” Matobato linked current NBI director Dante Gierran, among others, to this incident.

2010
The bodyguards of ex-House speaker and then-mayoral candidate Prospero Nograles were said to be kidnapped and killed. Matobato claimed that this was done upon orders of Duterte.

That year, it was Sara Duterte who ran and won as Davao City mayor; her father, Rodrigo Duterte, won as vice mayor.

2013
A man whom Paolo Duterte had an argument with was said to be killed by a police unit from the Heinous Crimes section in the victim’s house in Deca Homes Subdivision. Matobato added that two other persons were killed in the operation. Matobato first mentioned that this happened in 2010, but later corrected himself and said that it was in 2013.

Paolo Duterte also allegedly ordered the shooting of a man he had an altercation with. The man, according to Matobato, overtook the vice mayor’s car while he was waiting in line at a gas station. The group then brought the body to a Marfori Heights subdivision and left it there with a .38 caliber gun.

A fixer at a Land Transportation Office (LTO) office was abducted. Matobato said that upon Duterte’s orders, the fixer was shot dead then dumped in San Rafael subdivision in Davao City.

3 women accused of being drug pushers were arrested from their apartment then killed, claimed Matobato. Their bodies were also dumped in San Rafael village.

A suspect arrested in Butuan City was brought to Davao City, but Matobato said that the suspect was salvaged by a certain Major Lao before they even reached the city center. It was allegedly ordered by Duterte, said Matobato.

A dancing instructor, then the boyfriend of Duterte’s sister Jocelyn, was supposedly ordered killed. Matobato added that the instructor was abducted, handcuffed, and killed at the Ma-a quarry.

2014
Cebu businessman Richard King was shot dead in Obrero, Davao City. Matobato claimed that Paolo Duterte ordered the killing because he and King were rivals over a woman. Details of Matobato’s testimony, however, were inconsistent with previously documented details, as Senator Panfilo Lacson pointed out.

Police Superintendent Leonardo Felonia, former Regional Intelligence Unit-Davao chief, allegedly masterminded the killing of King.

Duterte, on July 8, linked King to alleged drug lord Herbert Colangco. King’s family, however, insisted that the late businessman was never involved in drugs.

Undated
An agent of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) identified as a certain “Amisola” was allegedly blocking a road in Matina, Davao City, and apprehended by a certain Major Pabo. A gunfight then ensued. Matobato claimed that Duterte later arrived at the scene and “finished off” the agent with “200 bullets” to the body.

These are just the ones that have been uncovered. There are hundreds of other killings alleged to be carried out by the Davao Death Squad.

We can't expect third world nations to behave like first world nations. They simply can't afford to.

Y'all bitches tryna bring first world luxuries into third world problems. It's like telling a single mother in the ghetto to worry about factory farming. 

Duterte Harry is trying to do right by his people, which is a lot more than I can say for European and American politicians.
