Two men celebrating the brutal massacre of criminals.
Duterte showed the world what it means for democratic populism to triumph by campaigning on a platform of slaughtering his enemies wholesale, and winning with an overwhelming margin.
Since getting in office, he’s killed thousands upon thousands of criminals, degenerates and Moslem terrorists, and his popularity is higher than that of any leader in the corrupt Western world.
This, of course, makes him a hated enemy of the Jewish media, which is 100% on board with drug cartels running third world countries.
WaPo: The nation’s #1 drug cartel activist media outlet.
Now, Trump is going to meet up with Duterte just as his enemies are whining about their junkies and pushers getting killed. Boo hoo hoo.
The funeral is packed with children. There are children praying. Children playing peekaboo. Children peering through the glass-topped casket at their friend.
There lies Mark Salonga, the wisecracking oldest of four children, one of 16 cousins living under one tin roof. Mark, 15, was fatally shot by men on motorbike on the night of Nov. 3, leaving behind his family, a baseball cap and his school ID.
In the year and a half since President Rodrigo Duterte took office on a promise to kill suspected drug users and dealers, thousands of Filipinos, including dozens of children and teenagers, have been killed, either shot in police raids with high-death tolls and few witnesses, or targeted by hit men, often after being named by police.
The scope of the violence is such that the roadside killing of a 15-year-old is not big news. On Sunday afternoon, as Mark’s family and friends walked from church to cemetery, there were no television cameras. The press was focused, instead, on the arrival of President Trump.
Mark lived in a Manila that Trump won’t see. The U.S. president landed at the airport, took a helicopter to the roof of a conference center and then drove through closed streets to a luxury hotel.
Over the next two days, he will attend closed-door meetings, including a talk with Duterte. They are expected to discuss North Korea’s nuclear program, terrorism, the South China Sea and other issues. What remains to be seen is whether they will talk about the anti-drug campaign and the violent impunity it unleashed.
I’m sure they will talk about it.
Donald Trump has a lot to learn about how to run a country and destroy his enemies, and Duterte might be the best there is at doing just that. He’s got a lot of experience dealing with a hostile press, Moslem terrorists, subversive elements, corrupt government bureaucrats and more.
He may even be able to help him with public speaking and rhetoric.
This is sure to be a very fruitful meeting.
While President Barack Obama called out Duterte’s rights record, Trump has steered clear of public comment. A leaked transcript of a phone call with Duterte, however, showed that he privately praised the effort, telling Duterte that he was doing an “unbelievable job on the drug problem.”
Yeah, and we have a drug problem of our own. Several drug problems, in fact.
The first is that we have horrible Mexican gang-bangers importing drugs in the country.
Prime targets for the Duterte method of drug-control.
The second problem is that White people are getting hooked on prescription pain-killers because their lives are meaningless and doctors are prescribing them like it’s candy.
Draining the swamp should fix that pretty well, too.
