Duterte And His Zealots

… What’s that noise? Oh, it’s just the Filipino stupidity.

Hi guys, first time poster here, I’m also a Filipino that’s getting fed up of shit going on in here.
And today I would like to make my first post about Duterte and his zealous followers.

I’ve been observing them for quite some time now, and boy, Duterte’s followers are in the same level of stupidity
as the other pinoys that have been mentioned here. It’s amusing and at the same time it made me lost all hope when
it comes to this wretched of a nation that’s just trying to kill itself.

Duterte’s followers are really that mind-boggling as expected. Debates with hard facts do not work against them, oppose them and you’ll be accused of being “yellow”, biased, or a black propagandist. For those who do not know what I mean by “yellow”, it means you are an active follower of Noynoy Aquino and his followers. It’s pretty ironic that those rabid Duterte fans used to be avid followers of Noynoy. Now they’re just setting him aside for the next thug president that’s about to take the presidential seat.

Also, it’s getting kinda obvious that the majority of the people on this nation are just following the “monkey see, monkey do” principle. And with pinoys (and some expats) yearning for martial law and someone to leash them and yell at them, it only helped to shed a light on that.

Now about Duterte, he’s been doing a lot of shit these days, I think we all know of the recent rape joke, no? He joked about an australian missionary woman who had been raped and had her throat slit. His followers are okay with it because it’s a joke, and Duterte refused to apologize, had managed to find an excuse that he was talking about the 1989 hostage
incident which he wasn’t tied into. The zealots still chanted “DU30Parin”, a chant which is as stupid as
Pinoy Pride. He’s also been planning to cut ties with America, and Australia after they responded negatively to his
rape joke. This isn’t the first time he reacted poorly to someone who’s being raped, he doubted his daughter of being raped and called her a “drama queen” instead of taking some time to look into it.

Duterte’s zealots are okay with him severing ties with US and Australia too, without realizing the consequences of that. Lots of companies and jobs will surely be lost. Let’s not forget that majority of Duterte’s followers work for American companies and call centers out there.. the irony surely will strike them the hardest. Duterte also name-called the Pope during his visit last year ago, and his followers who likely are fans of the Pope are okay with it too. It’s really a bad case of “monkey see, monkey do”. I’m kinda wondering why these so-called “religious” people didn’t call him out on it. Maybe it’s because the Pope never left any gifts?

And furthermore, Duterte’s known by everyone who has a functional brain that he deals against crimes poorly. He executed a 12 year old kid, his own son and believes that death penalty without judgement is the final solution to all things. For all we know he only stands against petty criminals and there’s no news of him calling out the corrupt governors. Eliminating street crooks left to right wouldn’t do this nation that much good.

To be honest, I’m kind of wondering what would happen if he wins the election. He stomps on human rights, his behavior and the way he acts makes him unfit to run as a president. And he even said that himself before.  So why did he had a sudden change of mind? Mike’s predictions might not be that far off. And PH will probably undergo a Nineteen-Eighty-Four esque dictatorship for some time, although that seems like overthinking it. But if he cuts ties with nations that disagrees with him, PH will have drastic negative changes.

logoWhile Duterte has lots of brain-dead followers, his detractors are coming out from under to voice an opinion. Hell, even the Philippines subreddit on Reddit (which is known for housing delusional expats and pinoys) has lots of anti-Dutertes there too. Still, the majority shuts everyone out with their shouting. Still, as I said irony will be there to give them a hard slap in the face, make them rally against Duterte after he steps down. The same pinoys who rooted for him will shame him for a while and miss him. Then when the next president that comes after him steps down, surely that president will be shamed like Noynoy. The cycle continues.

Many months from now, Duterte could be watching you.

    The biggest issue I have with Duterte and his idiot followers….and for that matter, the entire government, is the fact that he admits to killing people. He admitted to being behind the Davao Death Squads. He kills petty criminals because he ASSUMES they are guilty.

    Why is everyone so fucking upset about a stupid inappropriate rape joke when the megalomaniac is a fucking murder????

    He breaks the law in the disguise of enforcing the law.

    Here’s an excerpt from the Philippines Constitution, in the Bill of Rights:

    SECTION 14. (1) No person shall be held to answer for a criminal offense without due process of law.

    (2) In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall be presumed innocent until the contrary is proved, and shall enjoy the right to be heard by himself and counsel, to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation against him, to have a speedy, impartial, and public trial, to meet the witnesses face to face, and to have compulsory process to secure the attendance of witnesses and the production of evidence in his behalf. However, after arraignment, trial may proceed notwithstanding the absence of the accused provided that he has been duly notified and his failure to appear is unjustifiable.

    And everyone..and I mean EVERYONE seems to be turning a BLIND EYE to this fact. It’s as if nobody, not even the current President or any other high ranking government officials even realize that’s in their constitution.

    The VERY FUCKING MOMENT Duterte admitted to being behind the Death Squads, he should have been arrested and put on trial.

    This is how fucking stupid Filipinos are. I mean excruciatingly stupid, brainless, idiotic brain dead morons. They all fall for this stupid claim that Davao is the safest city. But when you look at it from a legal standpoint, IT’S THE COMPLETE OPPOSITE.

    If 1000’s of people have been violently killed by the death squads before they have been put to trial and found guilty, THEY ARE INNOCENT!!! So, actually, 1000’s of innocent people have been gunned down in Davao, which makes it a very UNSAFE city, probably among the highest murder rates in the nation.

    And for Duterte to take that approach, it shows his complete inability to deal with crime. He is a lazy, unintelligent strong arm thug with no ability to solve problems in a civilized manner. He is lazy. He does not lead by example, he rules through fear. And he has stated concisely that he will continue in that method if elected President. What a complete idiot. He will ignore the Constitution, violate human rights, and his countrymen’s Constitutional rights. And the Filipino people are all for it.

    When you give a man like that a green light to ignore the law, they are placing him above the law, and mark my words, if he gets elected, he will make Marcos look like a fucking saint. He will most likely declare martial law within a year after he takes office, and he will rule for decades. He does not think ahead, he doesn’t think at all. He’s an idiot more so than his followers.

    He says he will rule with an iron fist.

    I say if you feel you need to rule with an iron fist, it usually means it’s because you lack the intelligence to lead with dignity, influence, and honor.

    Those who do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it.

    Tsk tsk tsk.

    I’m sure glad I got the fuck out of there. It’s going to be a fucking mess if he’s elected. Better to have just another blah blah passive status quo President than Duterte.

    1. Profile gravatar of Johnny

      The only thing that will keep him from ruling for decades is the fact he’s like 70 already,,, with dark, black hair. (For some reason the Filipino politicians can lie, cheat, steal, admit to killing 1000’s, but if masses find out they have any grey hair,, its over).

      I’m in the same boat as you. I cannot imagine how or why Filipinos are so insane with this guy. He kills petty criminals,,, or people he says did something wrong somewhere. Petty crime is not what is killing the Philippines,,, its massive corruption. Has he killed any corrupt politicians, corrupt judges, customs officers, pork barrel cronies,, I mean allegedly corrupt? Then what makes people think he will whip the country into shape? He’s just going to put more drug dealers out of work or make drugs more expensive since it more risky.

      This idiot Duterte cannot even phathom the idea of when a president says something, there are actual consequences. Then he responds to the consequences as “Fuck you,,,, pinoy pride!!! I’ll cut ties, I’ll put bodies in Manila bay, etc”. What kind of president is that? He hasn’t even enacted a single thing yet, but he’s already telling people to fuck off for not supporting him.
      Then they try to compare him to TRump like its even closely related. Trump hasn’t killed anyone and Trump is highly educated with decades of business experience,,, and I’m not a Trump fan either. I’m just defending him against Pinoy pride/ stupidity (is there really a difference at this point?).

      What PM or president of another country will even want to stand/ sit next to an admitted homicidal maniac at the next summit. He just needs to push a couple of steps further and the BPO’s will pull out. That is half the Philippine economy! I guarantee right now there are large scale BPO’s and companies doing a check right now to see how ready the Malaysian or Indonesian people are ready with English/ tech skills. The peso is already declining with Duterte leading and with the expat killings. Lets all chant it together,,, Pinoy Pride!!

      “I say if you feel you need to rule with an iron fist, it usually means it’s because you lack the intelligence to lead with dignity, influence, and honor.”
      – Exactly!! I’m sure all that paperwork and admin stuff must be so boring. It must be so tough to keep a few judges and prison wardens in line than having a squad out killing anyone you don’t like. Seriously? Death penalty for dealing drugs in a country with such high unemployment, low wages, corruption, leaders who are openly stealing from the people, no skills, and no opportunity?

      The fucking idiot is murdering a consequence,, not the cause. If he had murdered CJ Corona 20 years ago, it would have had a better effect, or Estrada, or whatever corrupt politicians stole the budget for education so their town now has a bunch of idiotic pinoys. What good does killing a drug dealer or petty criminal do. If they were buying off politicians, judges, cops, kidnapping, or involved in terrorism, then maybe, but few get to that level.

      This issue drive me insane. Duterte is going to be the best/ worst. Best cause its going to be a trainwreck with the USD getting more valuable. The worst in watching the country get their express pass to hell.

        Don’t you know which country we are talking about? 100 million smooth skinned baboons with iq 20, super corrupt, super-greedy, super irrational etc.

        Your nice dignified, influential, honorable leader would be fucked before he could say “sweet”! To fix this country you’d need a leader tougher than mr. Stalin, smarter than mr. Einstein more patient than mother Theresa!

        It seems that the quality of the people is not at all taken into consideration, just export a sweet Obama kind of sweet grandpa here and everything will be fine!? What gross naïveté!

          That’s what my wife is saying: You can not reason with a Filipino. She honestly has absolutely has no fate in her own people and it’s culture. She also a Duerte supporter and has no problem to a have a bloodbath. I argue with her about how Duerte would be at best only a temporary solution for a permanent problem, She agrees but she asks me about what my solution would be. When I talk about it she criticizes me to be a naive Kano who really doesn’t understand how rotten corrupt Filipinos and the culture are and there is no hope for any change. She really gets very annoyed with me for being naive.

      The majority of pinoys rooting for him despite his actions is really intriguing. Either they’re following him blindly (but with good intentions) or everyone in PH has sunk into a new level of lowness that they want to see everyone and themselves burn now.

      He’s also planning to close the congress if it gets in his way: http://www.mb.com.ph/duterte-plans-to-close-congress-in-case-of-impeachment/

      Really scary. Next he’ll probably shut off the internet and turn PH into the 2nd North Korea.

      No one will give a more True representation of the phils than Mr. Duterte. Because his attitudes are classic Pinoy attitudes, that’s why they vote for him, he’s the classical image of a real Pinoy man, tough, primitive, stupid and cruel.

      That’s what pinoys want! So let them have it!

        “Because his attitudes are classic Pinoy attitudes, that’s why they vote for him, he’s the classical image of a real Pinoy man, tough, primitive, stupid and cruel.”

        Don’t forget narcissistic too. He must have changed his mind about 100 times about running for president, I’m sure because he just enjoyed hearing the idiots begging him to run. He can’t surely be that indecisive. Who’d want a president who can’t make up his mind and isn’t sure if he even wants the job anyway?

        1. Profile gravatar of Mufazzza

          Yup! Your correct, its his Craving to be liked that drives his “indesicion” which points to narcissism since this “craving” is boundless and he needs constant resupply. Hence his need to “switch” all the time.

          When he gets to power his killing-sprees will most likely also kill off some bad guys, so that’s good!;-)

          The phils must be the most perverted, degenerated people in modern times, even worse than Americans!;-)
          But surely more are aspiring to the same standards, and since Asians seem to be the most obsessive, narcissistic and overpopulated of countries the no. 2 “degenerate” country will probably be Asian too, maybe south-Korea? At least they have “good” genes for such, their northern brethren are pretty sick in the head!;-)

          Let’s rejoice, it can only get sicker! Just wait till it gets warmer and all fish is gone! Won’t be long now…….
          At least Pinoy will finally stop stinking fish when they’ve killed off the ocean, must be some benefits?!;-)

          All that’s left is the stench of piss, open sewer and burning plastic, ohhh what a lovely future this country shall have…reasons for Pride will be endless…….

            “points to narcissism “, actually what points most to narcissism is NPD was the grounds for his annulment. His NPD. They really don’t need divorce here, annulment is enough because they almost all have built in grounds for it. The few that don’t wouldn’t want an annulment.

            Like I said, for a pinoy to think he has pride, he cannot actually think or use his mind. It has to be almost pure, blind stupidity, with absolutely no reasoning skills whatsoever. Not to mention long term consequences. It’s actually quite comical.
            However, it could actually turn really bad. Since the people are so stupid on average Duterte can easily rally up the idiots in a violent manner. Since he was never prosecuted and only rewarded, what is to stop them? Their devout religion LOL??
            So if Duterte wins and rallies the masses to hate on foreigners, Chinese, money-lenders, rice traders, etc, things could get very bloody very quickly. Like I said, these pinoys won’t use much brain power, but use pinoy pride power. So they will actually think killing/ beating of any of the mentioned groups by Du30 is not a crime, but an act of patriotism.

        They are most certainly NOT a Christian organisation. They are a “cult”, and while I do not want to get into the nuances of what a cult is (that is outside the scope of this comment, and this entire website for that matter), suffice it to say that Iglesia ni Cristo wields a lot of power over their members and also over the local/regional/national politicians. They demand the utmost devotion and obedience from their people, even to the point of telling them who to vote for. In return for these votes, the politicians are obligated to direct government funds to build churches, houses for their leaders, etc. That is why they have some of the fanciest looking church buildings in the country.

    Bill of rights and other written material don’t matter. Pinoy won’t read and don’t read. Law in Phils is what someone says it is regardless of what’s written. The only law here is the law of the jungle and that’s the way they like it. That’s why there is zero law enforcement and courts don’t work. If you can’t enforce your own brand of justice, then you’ll get no justice. Pinoys are proud of this fact and have designed their system around this principle.

      1. Profile gravatar of Mufazzza

        Exactly! That’s why the only thing that could save them would be a leader so insanely hard that they never knew what hit them!! Tougher and more brutal than Stalin, that’s the only cure, not some sweet ol western nanny!!!;-)

        And more Machiavellian than Machiavelli himself!!:-)

        And who had the balls to let his hair remain gray! That would be the sign of ultimate toughness! Something tells me he doesen’t live in the phils….. They’re better at producing sleazy, greasy, corrupt, cruel stuff….that’s why they never improve….

      2. Profile gravatar of Johnny


        That is the Filipino irony.
        They say they want drastic change, but don’t do anything for it. In fact they seem to love the way things currently work.
        They say they want people to follow the rules, but there are tons of rules. No one follows them now and they have police so something obviously isn’t working with the basic setup.
        Ever notice the amount of litter underneath a “no littering” sign? Or the amount of trash on a beach while they are charging an environmental fee? It’s comical.

        Yeah, all those really corrupt guys always have to have overly dark hair while they are in their 70’s. Look at Estrada. He looks like a troll with his sinister looks and jet-black hair, Enrile is like 80+ and he is another one.

        1. Profile gravatar of Mufazzza

          Yea! Thats way the only thing that can save the phils is tough love from a foreign power, probably the Chinos after The Battle of the Spratly’s.

          I’d love to do the job myself, but I’m currently without an army. Besides I ain’t got mother Theresa’s patience and neither the consequence and brutality of Mr. Stalin, which would be needed!

          I sometimes wonder where their stupidity comes from, the Malay or the Spanish blood. Other Malay nations are not equally stupid, could it be the Spanish? Or is there a third blood-factor of which I am unaware? Feel free to enlighten me if someone knows the answer.

          Anyway there’s a lot of stupidity, cruelty and laziness in Mexico too, that would indicate culpability of the Spanish blood. But I’m really not sure.
          Maybe the Palmes are to blame?;-)

            Where else can you get a race of midgets that love a sport they can never play successfully and make it their national obsession, but it is an Merican game so we love it too.
            If you think they aint obsessed with basketball try going into any Govt. office and get served when a game is on , watch the local news , they report all the results from all of the games in Merica. Per head of population it is probably more popular here than Merica. Of all the Merican sports to copy THAT IS FUCKING ONE YOU PICK !!!!!!
            I watch TV in Aussieland this morning Duterte was on TV in Germany too all about his rape joke and the admission of condoning murder, he was talking about killing again.

            Certainly not from the Spanish, and the dumbest Mexican is still smarter than the smartest flip. Methinks that their stupidity came from generation after generation of inbreeding. Keep in mind that, prior to the 20th Century and the industrialization that the americans brought with them, most of them remained in their little tribal villages, with the men going around boinking every vagina they can get their little peckers into. The only time they ventured out of those tribal villages was to chuck spears at rival tribes. And not much has changed from that….

    Any Filipino who votes for a person that legitimises killing is not Christian.
    The whole of the Philippines are hypocrites if they condone this guy who is 71 by the way
    over the average life expectancy age of living in the Phillippines of 68 –
    Just because he runs a city doesn’t mean he can run a country.
    Look at examples overseas where “much loved by the people” mayors have been running large cities successfully
    and moved into Federal or state politics and absolutely got run out of town
    at the next term elections
    for being fuckwits and heavy handed on people.

    I sometimes wonder if the guy gets up in the morning and thinks to himself, “Let’s see what stupid shit I can say today and test how dumb my supporters really are”.

    A few weeks ago he came out with, “To all Roman Catholics, listen to your bishop. Dont vote for me or you will go to hell.” Are all these thousands of supporters suddenly renouncing their faith? Doubtful, most are probably in church at this moment, praying for him to be the next president.

    The other dayI saw a post from one of his supporters with the headline – “US sends world’s largest airplane to the Philippines to support Duterte.” There were then a number of pictures of an Antonov An-225 Mriya, one with snow in the background. And of course pinoys were sharing the shit out of this made up nonsense.

    There’s actually a HUGE HUGE difference between “like” and “support”. Flips like this man because he’s funny, talks nonsense and jokes around to almost all his propagandas and whatnot. They find it entertaining. It really depends on how stupid you are to believe whatever is out there.
    I mean, in here… i like Trump, because he’s an asshole. I find his campaigns and rallies entertaining.. but it doesn’t mean I’d vote for him nor support him. I do not believe in the government since JFK died. Much less rely on the media who has the BIGGEST LIES piled up to the world. If you like a man because he’s hilarious and you think he’s a “badass” because he kills sinners and the like, then you’re free to like him and enjoy the scene but if you think and support that he should be ruling a country because he is “badass” then you’re just an ultimate imbecile.

      Has he killed or imprisoned anyone corrupt? Is Davao a shining example of a non-corrupt Filipino city?
      Just cause he kills petty drug criminals does not mean he’s going to do the same to worst of the bunch causing all the problems. In fact, I think he kills those petty criminals not to keep his city safe, but out of his own insanity.

    They ALL said they were voting for him as the Philippines needs a strong man for a leader, they have ha d enough of baklas and politically correct politicians.
    What I asked would happen if they found out later he was indicted for corruption read into that the Bank Accounts just revealed.
    They said they would/could get rid of him with people power again.!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    They are prepared to assume Binay is guilty and he probably is , Roxas has screwed up everything he has touched, the idiot son sent into politics to stay / keep away from the family business, Poe is inexperienced , Miriam has Cancer and they all know Roddy is a confessed murderer or aided and abetted murder.

      Fucking Filipinos. I swear they’d chant pinoy pride with the most insane leader while drinking cyanide koolaid just cause the leader says so. The problem is the idiots always drag down the few (20%) of Filipinos who can think rationally and truly want a better country. For some reason when Filipinos like his follower and Duterte claim to have pride it means thinking and brains are left out of the equation, “Thinking of consequence is not for us proud pinoys!!”

      What will be great to see and I’m surprised we haven’t seen more of it lately is when all the other mayors start their own death squads. I mean, if the guy who came up with the idea never went to jail, prison, got in trouble, but got to become president then why should I kill a bunch of people and simply call them criminals that needed to go?

    Did anyone catch the drama unfold when he was accused of having a secret account? Some senator accused him of having a secret account with P210 Million in it.
    Of course D30 denied it completely and said something insane and over the top just to say he really did not have a secret account. Well, some journalist went to BPI made a deposit into the account and then proved it. So D30 then said, “Oh yeah, I do have an account, forgot all about that”.
    However, after admitting that part, he then said it only has like P20,000 in it. I’m not sure if they proved that or not. However, now they are talking about suing the senator for libel. Do these fucking morons even know what libel means?

      In the Flipland they can actually jail you for libel, hows that accuse someone of libeling you, then they get you arrested, and they wonder why the place and the court system is so fucked up.
      Remember the Igliochristos had the pastor from their church jailed after he ratted on them, that was after he escaped with his family when he was rescued after they kidnapped him to stop him from whistle-blowing.
      He then escaped Flipland and they wonder why he fucked off overseas whilst on Bail. He even had a No fly blacklist over him.

      Yes, one of my uncles was caught up in a libel scam years ago. They claimed he said something about someones wife. That case took 3-4 years to figure out!!! Its like a bunch of neanderthals sitting around with an abacus trying to figure out simple math,, then arguing over it.
      The case was a scam, the accuser presented fake witnesses, and they even had pictures of the same day where everyone was together and smiling. Of course the accuser got zero penalty for lying. He just had to pay the normal fees to an attorney and the court for falsely accusing someone and wanting to put my uncle in jail. My uncle thought about charging him for it, but figured that would take another 3-4 years and he had to go back to Texas

      The latest development in that saga is they said they can only look at the current statement (and that would take time) as it would take a special order to look up past transactions. Looking up the past transactions would take them longer than a week and by that time the election is over. I guess the Filipino way is to find out someone is corrupt AFTER you elect them otherwise whats the fun of keeping the guy out of the race when you find out earlier?

    “What most pinoy don’t realize is the only ones that are giving them problems are nothing but themselves.”

    Yep. The Philippines is a hopeless case. Whoever their president is if they can’t decipher the fact that all they need to do in order for their country to change is to cut their horseshit crap of a culture, it will always remain the same. Most third world countries are pretty much hopeless because of the number of unintelligent citizens greater than their archipelago.

      They will throw a bit of rubbish down on the ground…. only this once. As you know, they have no memory of their actions
      and think, its only a bit of trash – just this once. My fucking friends used to do that and question “why” when i said dont throw your fucking trash on the ground. I don’t rubbish the Philippines, why should you.

      Meanwhile…. 90 million other turds are also doing the same thing with the same mindset! thinking theyre the only ones, just this once
      ill let that wrapper, packet etc on the ground – …. just this once.
      next week…. just this once

    Methinks this is another Marcos in the making–martial law, killing off anyone who he does not like, all the while raping and pillaging the country for billions.

    But just like Marcos, the brain-dead baboons will support (if not idolize) him no matter what he does or says. Sigh.

    Which reminds me of a quote commonly attributed to Thomas Jefferson: “The government you elect is the government you deserve.”

    Yeah, they deserve him.

    I doubt people power would work again. Duterte certainly would have no issues killing those criminals who oppose his right to rule as he sees fit. They should just get the marcos kid to be president, he’s young and the family have experience in the whole strong man rule thing. His mum could be his mentor and show them all how it’s done. In no time at all the people could be just as proud of their dear leader as the north Korean. Then china would leave them alone as they could become a puppet state.

    I can’t add much to the discussion as much of what I wanted to say has already been said here, and I completely agree.
    The first comment by the captain asking why Duterte has not faced criminal charges is a question I’m always asking but nobody can answer. Strange isn’t it? I’m sure if I publicly admitted to talking part in murders I’d have the cops knocking on my door.
    The popularity of Duterte amongst the electorate only proves that the majority of Phils voters must possess a low intellect and be incapable of thinking things through properly.
    There’s a saying that everyone gets the government they deserve, and it looks like these dummies are going to get theirs.
    They’re voting for him because (allegedly) he has done a good job as mayor. But that doesn’t automatically mean he will be a good president. He’s already caused outrage internationally with his rape ‘ joke’ , then further compounded the error with his blunt response to criticism.
    He will be a disaster as president and I believe that he will be a deterrent to foreign investment.
    Also, for a so-called hard man he seems to be soft on terrorists and the Chinese.
    Perhaps, like all bullies, he’s a coward and only goes after easy targets?
    God help the decent flips who aren’t voting for him. As for the rest, you asked for it!

      I am not sure (I think they may be mixing the fact that you can have narcissistic personality traits and be a decent person with the pathology of narcissism).

      “it’s important to understand that Narcissism (as a personality disorder) MIGHT NOT BE PRESENT IN HUMAN PSYCHOLOGY but a person can (by habit or nurture) act in incredibly toxic ways. People can be narcissistic (with a little “n”) without having full-blown NPD. What’s more, people with NPD can behave in ways that are so deviant and extreme that to call them a Narcissist is minimization.”

        It’s true that both Mr. Churchill and Mr. Stalin both had an element of npd. Consequently Tis necessary to have this trait to get some serious things done! However it is also good to have a decent amount of intelligence to couple with the npd. Being a pinoy’n all we have reason to doubt this factor in the case of Mr. Duterte.

      No, that’s wrong, it’s not immaturity! It is actually embarrassment. Pinoy Is conscious of their own inferior intelligence, but they lack the balls to admit to it! Instead they try to hide this fact by playing stupid games. We must just pity them.

    There has not been a people so deserving of a leader like Duterte like the Pinoy. It will be so beautiful to see him and Mr. Trump on the podium together, hailed as leaders of the free World. It will be the perfect image of total loss of quality by democratically elected leaders.

    But the Philippines deserve Mr. Duterte as does the U.S. Mr. Trump. One could ask the point of democracy and costly elections when any dictator can match the elected ones in both integrity and intelligence.
    Idiot people usually elect idiot leaders, while with dictators sometimes one is positively surprised, as with Mr. Napoleon. (Yea, he waged some wars, like any decent dictator but he was quite intelligent)

    When the intelligence quotient of the populace falls to a certain minimum the concept of democracy is absurd! Not only freedom is needed but also a certain minimum of intelligence in the Majority of the electorate! If not we are much better off with juicy dictators!;-) Like Mr. Duterte. Had he only decimated some mongrels, majors, cockerels and pissers and maybe some “judges” the phils would be a much better place. (Mark the difference between “decimation” and “annihilation” it’s quite huge!)I wish him luck in his endeavor to make the p. a more livable place, ‘Tis sorely needed!

    In the phils, as many here know, the presence of the necessary intelligence is almost totally absent in the electorate. In the U.S. the quotient is rapidly eroding and will be further eroded in the coming decennium.
    By the way, many Americans are neither “free” nor particularly bright, and the numbers are rapidly decreasing, sadly!! The World is obviously running quickly out of the tub…….at least the good part of it! Oh well, what’s new under the sun.

      Politics is overrated. There are reasons why the media is so focused on bombarding Trump as an asshole on every television up north. It’s mostly because it catches people’s attention. These individuals right off the bat would feel very “righteous” right away to think they should do something about it. But in reality, they really can’t do anything about it. The media is merely a puppet and a very strong instrument to brainwash people or distract the masses to see what REALLY is going on with America. I scoff on the self righteous hippies trying so hard to make the country a better place by what? Posting their hypocritical speeches on their Facebook statuses and asking people to share and like it.

      Like I said, politics is overrated and I would def stand my point that it is one way to distract the citizens on seeing the bigger picture. People are so blind to really figure out who the REAL enemy is. If you can’t figure it out then you’re not lurking too much in the dark net. 😉

    Was surfing Yahoo news earlier today (OK, I was a bit bored), and one of the titles called Duturd as “The Trump of the East”. Ugh–I’m glad I was not drinking anything at the time I read that otherwise the liquid would have shot out my nostrils. First of all, a disclaimer–I am NOT a Trump supporter (nor am I a supporter of Her Royal Highness Hillary), and I do not want this thread to get into american politics (that is not the purpose of this website). While there are some parallels between the two (tough talking, speaking their minds, and a lot of foot-in-mouth statements), IMHO The Donald is far far superior to Duturd in every way.

    But the one thing I wish to mention is that the election of Duturd can be dangerous for expats and perhaps even western tourists. Keep in mind that flips are so prideful they are completely incapable of realizing that the biggest problem with the Philithippines is the flips–and that includes Duturd. I can see him blaming all of the problems in that country on Westerners, which could lead to BIG problems for those Westerners who live or regularly visit there. A few months back there was a post about the horrific experience that The Beatles had in that country back in 1966, and the fact that they refused to give a special concert for Imelda (which was never planned or agreed upon in advance), causing her to go on TV and play the victim (something that flips of masters of–especially the women), the end result being that the wrath of almost the entire nation was directed against them. Now, if they can do that to the most famous musical group in all of history, what would stop them from making life even more of a living hell for Westerners if Duturd decides to blame-shift the country’s problems on that minority group?

    I hope that, if that imbecile is elected, every expat will start to rebuild any bridges that might have been burned with his home country and get out as soon as possible. For the sake of their freedom, if not their own lives.

      Don’t you mean Her Royal Kiss Asswipe highness Hillary?! Not a Trump supporter either nor a fan of american politics. I totally detest and spit phlegm on whoever wrote that article where they compared Dutertud with Donald. I mean, give me a break. The least I could pin point is that the Trump can back whatever ridicule he says on media with his assets or just him just being a multibillionaire asshole where as the Dutertud is just a plain ol asshole. Nothing more. I feel sorry for the flips who thinks voting for this guy would make their country better. Really! I do.

      And yes, I remembered the Beatles catastrophe back in the 60’s. How the president’s wife’s tell-tale drama brainwashed the idiots to burn all their Beatles’s items and the like because she felt she was snubbed by them. It’s so embarrassing really, to be on international headlines with the issue, yet filipinos try to defend themselves by reversing the whole story. I remember my filipino nanny tells me I shouldn’t listen to my dad’s old Beatles collection because they are “evil” and rude.

      On a side note, I stumbled a comment in youtube on this video about the Pnoy president trying to form an alliance to other candidates to beat the mayor and his supporters. Anyway the comment is very much irrelevant on the video topic itself. The flip who made the comment suggested that if Mayor Dutertu wins they should make a visa policy on all foreigners entering the country as a revenge to the visa policy by other countries to filipino citizens. I cracked out laughing for minutes. lmao! Jeeeeez

      Yeah, I’m with you. I’m not a Trump fan or a HIllary fan, but comparing Trump to Duterte is so insulting to Trump. I guarantee if he makes president and learns who this Duterte guy is, he won’t like the comparison.

      You are right. He might start blaming the US bases or the CIA for meddling in his plans. Filipinos are so stupid as a culture they actually believe any diversionary tactic possible. Their mayors, concilors, customs agents, governors, etc rob them blind, but somehow they are all angry at China for a couple of islands they would never see anyway. He has a lot of people under mind-control right now (not very hard with Filipinos) and can point an angry mob in any direction he chooses. He could blame Chinese business owners for oppression, old expats for exploiting their women, Aussies for exploiting their minerals, etc.
      Further, Filipinos have a bad habit of blaming everyone but themselves. They’re leaders would never admit to looting the budget and constructing shoddy roads. It’s always someone elses fault.

      Another point I’ve noticed is this current wave Duturd pinoy pride means you have to abandon all logic, reasoning, and critical thinking. You must simply be proud and stupid.

    Currently Trillianes is going all out on Big Brother Duterte. I haven’t heard until now that he has an ad that fires shots at Duterte and he’s been airing this in radio stations for a long time now, the one for TVs just came out recently, I believe.

    The zealots are pissed at Trillianes for using children as a tool to his advertisement when they don’t realize that Duterte is just as bad or worse when it comes to children.

    Also: Duterte’s fantards are not safe from Trillianes’s line of fire: http://www.philstar.com/bansa/2016/05/06/1580483/trillanes-sa-dutertards-ipokrito

      Yeah, they were really after Trillanes for the accusations the admitted murderer could possible also be corrupt. LOL!! “He’s a murderer,, not a thief!!”. What awesome logic.
      The saga was super-funny and Dutard actually got caught lying.
      – Trillanes accused him of having a secret account with like $4 million USD.
      – Duterte denied it, said something incredibly stupid of course
      – Trillanes sent a journalist to the bank to make a deposit to verify the account exists.
      – The account exists!!
      – Dutard then says, “oh yeah, I do have an account there,,,,, but it does not have millions of dollars in it”.
      – Trillanes says, “well lets see the balance and the account history”
      – Dutard says, “you can’t and you have no right”. Oh, “and I have nothing to hide”.
      – Trillanes files some legal stuff to have the account opened.
      – Bank manager says he can’t. Says he needs more legal stuff to do that.
      – More legal stuff is filed and the excuse becomes, “oh, well we can’t give you the balance or account history now. You’ll have to wait 7 days.”
      – Election is less than 4 days away.

      I actually like the guy Trillanes. He really hates corruption and he’s pretty well educated, plus I think he was a high ranking military guy. Of course a Filipino talking patriotism is to be taken with a grain of salt.
      Little history: He claims to be a die-hard patriot. However, this guy actually tried to stage a coup against GMA cause of her election stealing, corruption, and fraud. He was arrested and actually ran for senator from jail,,, and won!! I think he did it without any money or vote-buying either.
      So if the guy truly is a patriot, he is doing and has done what any of us westerners (not lazy, uneducated pinoys) would do if corruption had taken such a drastic hold of our country. We would fight. If Binay, GMA, Estrada, or Marcos were our presidents, we would not tolerate it when their hidden wealth was uncovered or journalists were jailed. But like I said, patriotic filipinos talking are not really to be trusted anyway.

      They even threatened the Trillanes with Libel. These fucktards have no idea what libel is. They use it to silence whistle-blowers and deflect the accusations to make the accuser now the guilty person. Trillanes is actually doing his job. He went after Binay and after Binay laughed it off, he started presenting actual evidence of corruption to the point they discovered the 300 hectare farm in Batangas, the millions of dollars worth of condos in Makati he extorted, and the hidden accounts in HK/ Canada.

      Filipinos always cry for a hero or a government that works. The guy Trillanes actually did something right, but now they want him arrested. Great job pinoys!! Now the RCC is demanding Aquino step down, the least corrupt, most economically developing president the country has had. LOL even more.

      The biggest reason I follow Filipino politics so closely is cause it is a complete circus. The evil, corrupt, liars, murderers, thieves, and villains are on TV everyday!! They keep talking, lying, making up complete nonsense, getting caught, arrested, back in power, more theft, fake sickness, get acquitted then can suddenly walk again, etc. After Estrada (and I found out the Marcos family was in power) got re-elected I got hooked on the insanity of it all. Its like watching a train-wreck everyday.

    It’s election day today. All I can do is nod my head somberly, as I know that today, Duterte will win as president. My country has long been held captive by it’s unique mix of stupidity, gullibility, greed and corruptibility. So now they will elect a murderer and an asshole, hoping to save the country, despite each end every filipino not doing anything to help themselves or our country. This country was a beautiful shithole before, now it’s on its way to truly becoming “The Gates of Hell” – Dan Brown. Months, weeks, days and hours I spent trying to tell people the consequence of this man winning, but to no avail. Now I want him to win. I want every filipino that supported this man to suffer. For them to know that they’re own stupidity is what doomed this country. In my entire life, this is the first time I wished that I was wealthy enough or skilled enough to leave this country.

    It is a sad day indeed for the Filipinos if Duterte gets elected President today. Once elected President, he will cling to power at all costs…. Martial Law mark 2? Oh well, he is already 72 years old. Even allowing for good health despite his age how many years the Philippines will get out of him….. 10 years? 20 at most. In which case he will be in his 90s.

    Which brings to mind….. I bet no one has ever thought of testing this guy’s mental state. He could have some kind of delusional disorder. ASPD and NPD for sure he has them. A very dangerous combination to put someone in charge of the country with zero accountability, zero consequences for bad behavior and corruption and even zero accountability for murder in some cases.

    Filipinos adore “heroes”, both the real and the reel kind. The 2016 elections would have been the best opportunity for the late Fernando Poe, Jr. (FPJ is adoptive dad of Grace Poe) to challenge the LP candidate. And he would have won easily, I think.

    FPJ is a “reel” life hero. In his movies he always sided with and protected the underdog.

    To his Davao City constituents, Duterte is supposed to be a real life hero and this “our hero” image propagated nationwide and thru social media by his publicists and PR guys was effective in catching the attention of a citizenry who suffered daily under the ineptitude of a corrupt government.

    Filipinos have taken an extremely huge gamble by electing him. But Pinoys are known as notorious gamblers they would bet their last peso if it offered them a chance at hitting something big.

      Now we all know from experience how nothing is ever a filipinos fault and they find a way to shift the blame to others. So, along that line I wonder who they will blame if D30 turns out to be the most cruel and corrupt president. After all, they are the ones who put him in office since no one else can vote. Their twist should be interesting.

        Won’t be different from those who voted for that fruitcake as President 6 years ago.

        Barely a year into his term his voters were already screaming at him.

        Duterte still has to be formally installed yet but he’s already raising eyebrows among his supporters.

        When shit hits the fan, Filipinos will blame their elected leader for the let down. They will never take the blame. It’s really stupidity at the extreme. They keep doing the things same way but expect different results.
