This friggin guy!
What a joker!
Except that he’s seriously calling for civilians to kill people in the streets and telling them they won’t be punished!
New Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte, who has recently declared “a bloody war” on drug cartels, has called on willing Filipinos to “go ahead and kill” drug addicts, amid concerns that “getting their parents to do it would be too painful.”
Duterte, who said during his campaign that some 100,000 criminals would die in his crackdown, their bodies dumped in Manila Bay, has been conspicuously deaf to criticism that he was promoting a “culture of death” in his native country.
After taking his oath inside the Malacanang presidential palace, Duterte, 71, continued his defiance and threats against drug traffickers in front of a crowd of some 500 people gathered in a Manila slum Thursday night.
“These sons of whores are destroying our children. I warn you, don’t go into that, even if you’re a policeman, because I will really kill you,” the outspoken Philippines leader told the crowd, AFP reported.
“If you know of any addicts, go ahead and kill them yourself as getting their parents to do it would be too painful,” he added.
Setting up funeral parlors would help earn some money, Duterte noted.
“I assure you [that] you won’t go bankrupt. If your business slows I will tell the police, ‘Do it faster to help the people earn money.'”
…Unsurprisingly, such rhetoric has not endeared Dutarte to local drug lords. Last month, they raised the bounty they had put on the president, the Manila Bulletin reported. Over $1 million has now been promised for the assassination of the new leader.
Duterte in his turn offered a reward of 5 million pesos ($108,000) for a drug lord “if he is dead,” urging the public to join his far-reaching anti-crime fight.
Don’t even say this guy is not bro-tier.
I mean. I have never heard of anyone doing anything like this, ever.
Telling civilians to begin killing drug addicts on the streets?
Then claiming it is legal for him to do that?
This is the funniest thing this week, by far.
By far the funniest thing this week, my friends.
