President Duterte of Philippines is our hero (Page 2)

ShakespeareanJ: No it's very complicated. I understand the British one though. In Britain there is an awful lot of laughing at, scorn and disgust directed at our own democracy but when you come to China and you see what they have and what they don't have then you really can tell how much better and how much more advanced society is, broken though Britain seems to be.

itsmehere1001: From nzherald:
Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has claimed he was once gay but "cured" himself of homosexuality.

According to Newsweek, Mr Duterte made the bizarre comments on a trip to Japan where he mocked political opponent Senator Antonio Trillanes IV by saying his movements show he is homosexual.

He said someone else had asked him about the senator's sexuality.

"I said, 'Are you sure?' He said 'Ask any gay man and see that moving, they say that's gay,'" Duterte said. "Well, well, Trillanes and I are similar, but I got myself treated."

itsmehere1001: Also from the NZ Herald:
Three years after President Rodrigo Duterte unleashed the crackdown, at least 6600 people have been killed in police anti-drug operations, and more than 20,000 more killed by unknown perpetrators, according to the report. Only one case has led to a conviction — that of three police officers who murdered 17-year-old Kian Delos Santos.

The slaughter "has had the effect of creating a climate of total impunity in the country, in which police and others are free to kill without consequence," it said.
