The hero of Asia and basically the whole galaxy, Phillipine ruler Rody Duterte, is vowing to spend six more months annihilating the enemies of the people.
“I did not realise how severe and how serious the drug menace was in this republic until I became president,” Duterte, 71, told reporters late Sunday in his southern home city of Davao.Launching his crackdown was like letting “a worm out of the can” he said, adding that he wanted “a little extension of maybe another six months” to try and finish the job.
“Even if I wanted to I cannot kill them all because the last report would be this thick,” he said, referring to a new police list of people including top officials suspected of being involved in the drugs trade.
Police say they have killed 1,105 drug suspects in the slightly more than two months since Duterte took office.
Another 2,035 have been murdered by unknown assailants, with human rights monitors saying these could be vigilantes, emboldened by Duterte’s repeated calls for the public to help him kill criminals.
The crackdown has drawn severe criticism from the United States, the European Union parliament and the United Nations over what they say are extrajudicial killings.
Duterte has rejected the criticism, calling US President Barack Obama a “son of a whore” and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon a “fool”, and vowing to continue his campaign – which is proving hugely popular domestically and boosting his poll ratings.
Of course it’s hugely popular.
How could it not be?
No one likes drug dealers. They are a universally despised group of people. Thus, disregarding this “human rights” gibberish and wiping them out brings happiness to the people.
Duterte promised on the campaign trial that 100,000 people would be killed during his crackdown and so many bodies would be dumped in Manila Bay that fish would grow fat from feeding on them.
Days after his election win, Duterte also offered security officials bounties for the bodies of drug dealers, and has repeatedly pledged to protect police from prosecution over the killings.
He argued that these robust measures are necessary to prevent the country becoming a “narco-state”.
Duterte was speaking at a news conference to announce the safe recovery of a Norwegian man, who had been held hostage for a year in the country’s south by Islamic militants, who had beheaded two Canadian men captured at the same time.
Saving the Norwegian from an Islamic beheading is a itself a major story.
Democratic governments don’t ever accomplish anything like this. We’re just getting wiped out on the streets.
A Norwegian man held captive for almost a year by a militant Islamist group in the Philippines was freed Saturday, according to CNN Philippines and the state-run Philippines News Agency (PNA).
Abu Sayyaf released Kjartan Sekkingstad at 4 p.m. local time (4 a.m. ET), according to Western Mindanao Command spokesman Maj. Filemon Tan Jr.
Sekkingstad’s release was an offshoot of ongoing military operations against the Abu Sayyaf group, Tan told CNN Philippines. The Moro National Liberation Front, which is in peace talks with the government, assisted authorities in the operation, he said.
“Simultaneous land, air, naval and police operations complemented each other putting pressure on (Abu Sayyaf),” Tan said.
It is unclear whether a ransom was paid to secure Sekkingstad’s release.
Speaking at a press conference on Sunday, Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte said “it was a long, long negotiation.”
At the same conference, Sekkingstad expressed his “heartfelt” gratitude to the President, adding that he was “happy to be alive and free and it is a beautiful feeling.”
There was no random. I can tell you that. There were threats which the Moslems knew would be carried-out.
When your enemies are aware that you are both willing and capable of brutally murdering them all, hostage negotiations become much simpler.
Duterian Death Squadism is the new model for appropriate governance in the 21st century.
The Daily Stormer is about practical solutions to real world problems.
It is difficult to imagine a political or social problem which cannot be solved through the robust implementation of a death squad program.
