After Rodrigo Duterte won the presidency over the Philippines, many liberal pantywaists speculated that the people would quickly get sick of his based, strongman rule.
How wrong were they!
He won huge during mid-term elections, as the public can’t get enough of his straightening out of his nation. Duterte is making the Philippines great again, and island dwellers can once again be proud of themselves.
The Guardian reports:
“The president was elected on a populist wave in 2016 and the results demonstrate how little his popularity has dipped over the past three years, despite him achieving international notoriety over a war on drugs that has resulted in thousands of deaths, and his misogynist and anti-religious public remarks.
Up for grabs in the mid-terms were 12 Senate seats, nearly 300 seats in the House of Representatives and thousands of local posts, including mayor and governor positions. Pro-Duterte candidates scored victories in significant numbers.
Most significantly, nine pro-Duterte candidates won Senate seats, meaning the 24-seat upper house is now firmly under his grip. The liberal opposition did not win a single contested Senate seat.
Since his election in 2016, the Senate, which traditionally acts more independently and had a tiny majority who were resistant to Duterte, has been a bulwark against some of the president’s most controversial proposals, including the reintroduction of the death penalty.
But with three-quarters of the contested Senate seats now occupied by Duterte allies, his pathway is clear to introduce legislation bringing back capital punishment, as well as other contentious laws such as the lifting of presidential term limits and lowering the age of criminal liability to 12.
There are now just four anti-Duterte senators left and one, Leila de Lima, cannot vote because she is in jail on drugs charges she alleges were fabricated to silence her.”
Although the death penalty has been abolished in the Philippines by hippie pinko leftists, Duterte has sort of legalized extrajudicial murder while President. He once said his “only sin is the extrajudicial killings.”
“There are 3 million drug addicts [in the Philippines]. I’d be happy to slaughter them,” Duterte said in 2016.
“If Germany had Hitler, the Philippines would have …,” he said, before pointing to himself.
He finished: “You know my victims. I would like [them] to be all criminals to finish the problem of my country and save the next generation from perdition.”
Rodrigo ‘Hot Rod’ Duterte gives absolutely no f-cks, and his nation is loving every minute of it. Expect him to become a bonafide lifetime President, which is a concept that the U.S. should import over to our shores before 2024.
