Duterte Quote Thread

“The human rights (defenders) say I kill. If I say: ‘OK I’ll stop’. They (drug users) will multiply,” the president said on Monday.

“When harvest time comes, there will be more of them who will die. Then I will include you among them because you let them multiply.”

"Duterte, who boasted to voters during the campaign that he had shot a fellow law school student for teasing him, has championed the killing of suspected criminals and street children by vigilante death squads. In 2015, he said that if he became president, up to 100,000 people suspected of links to illegal drugs could be killed. Just months after his election, Duterte said he was eager to lead a genocide of up to 3 million drug addicts. “I'd be happy to slaughter them,” he said. “At least if Germany had Hitler, the Philippines would have [me].” And in September, an admitted hit man testified to a Senate committee in the Philippines that Duterte presided over a killing campaign when he was mayor of Davao City."

Duterte suggested relations could improve under President Donald Trump. "I like your mouth, it's like mine, yes Mr. President. We are similar and people with the same feathers flock together."

That hitman has since recanted, he never heard the president order any killing.

Also, here's an interesting article.

And so, the demolition job by de Lima and international media as well as international rights organizations goes on while Leila is portrayed as lily white and a credible critic of Rody and his government.
As she said, “if indeed his so-called ‘war on drugs’ is pursued within the bounds of the law and international standards, then his administration should have nothing to be afraid of. As they often say, an innocent man has nothing to hide,”
The same can be said of Leila. If indeed she is innocent of the charges leveled against her, but merely denies all allegations, despite the evidence against her, what is Leila afraid of if she has nothing to hide?

Classic!
What a great source, if it wasn't for fake news the Left would have nothing to talk about. But no recant will ever come; as long as one guy they like said it, it becomes irrefutable Gospel forevermore.

Keep 'em coming. Now that the smear campaign has started, it will never end and you just have to keep fighting it.

"“I was angry because she was raped. That’s one thing. But she was so beautiful. The mayor should have been first.”

He joked at a campaign event in April about the rape and murder of an Australian missionary by inmates during a prison riot in Davao when he was mayor in 1989.

Yeah it'll never stop.

here's a joke I picked up on FB.

"Duterte and the Pope
Have you heard about Duterte inviting the Pope for lunch on the BRP Ang Pangulo?
The Pope accepted, and during lunch a puff of wind blew the Pontiff's hat off, right into the water. It floated off about 50 feet, then the wind died down and it just floated in place.
The crew and the PSG were scrambling to launch a boat to go get it, when Duterte waved them off, saying "Never mind, boys, I'll get it."
The Rodgrigo climbed over the side of the yacht, walked on the water to the hat, picked it up, walked back on the water, climbed onto the yacht, and handed the Pope his hat.
The crew was speechless. The security team and the Pope's entourage were speechless also.
No one knew what to say, not even the Pope.
But that afternoon, NBC , CNN and the NY Times/ Washington Post, ABS-CBN, TV5, GMA all knew how to cover the story. Their banner headlines all read:
DUTERTE CAN'T SWIM!!!!!!"

During his maiden speech Duterte asked for his people’s help to rid the country of drugs, promising to reward them with medals and cash for shooting dead troublemakers.

“Do your duty, and if in the process you kill 1000 persons because you were doing your duty, I will protect you,” he said.

“If you know of any addicts, go ahead and kill them yourself as getting their parents to do it would be too painful.”

This week he reaffirmed his hard line approach to drugs and reducing the crime rate.

“More people will be killed, plenty will be killed until the last pusher is out of the streets. Until the (last) drug manufacturer is killed, we will continue and I will continue.”

During a gathering of a religious group in Manila, he said: “I once considered being a priest,” Rappler reported.

The President then took it a step further by saying: “It’s good I didn’t join the priesthood or else now I would be a homosexual.”

President of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte has declared “for every five Americans, three are idiots".

The flamboyant leader made the comments after receiving international condemnation for his claims that he enjoyed driving around killing people during his term as mayor of Davao City.

“The problem with these white people,” Mr Duterte told an audience in mixed English and Tagalog on Thursday, “these American blockheads, is that for every five Americans, three out of five are idiots, and only two are in their right minds".

“You Americans should just shut up,” he added, according to Philippine TV outlet ABS-CBN.

The media and other Left-Wing organizations in the US have been betting their whole careers on that assumption for many years now.

"Summary execution of criminals remains the most effective way to crush kidnapping and illegal drugs"

“If you are doing an illegal activity in my city, if you are a criminal or part of a syndicate that preys on the innocent people of the city, for as long as I am the mayor, you are a legitimate target of assassination."

Referring to the arrest of a suspected rice smuggler, Duterte spoke out in the state senate saying, "If this guy would go to Davao and starts to unload (smuggled rice)… I will gladly kill him."

"As a matter of fact, we inherited this problem from the United States," he said. "Why? Because they invaded this country and made us their subjugated people. Everybody has a terrible record of extra-judicial killing. Why make an issue about fighting crime?"

He added: "Look at the human rights of America along that line. The way they treat the migrants there."

The fiery-tempered former prosecutor said he once hurled a Chinese man suspected of rape and murder out of a helicopter.

"If you are corrupt, I will fetch you using a helicopter to Manila and I will throw you out. I have done this before, why would I not do it again?" Duterte said during a speech to victims of a typhoon on Tuesday, a clip of which is posted on a video feed of the president's office.

Duterte also said six people arrested last week during a seizure of more than half a tonne of methamphetamine, known locally as "shabu", in the capital were fortunate he was out of town.

"They were lucky I was not in Manila that time. If I had known there were that much shabu inside a house, I would definitely kill you," he said.

"Let's not make any drama, I will personally gun you down if nobody else will do it."

The United Nations' top human rights envoy has called for an investigation into Duterte's claims of killing people, to which Duterte last week responded by calling him "stupid", an "idiot" and a "son of a bitch" who should go back to school.
