UK’s Geopolitical expert list down "The 5 breeds of Duterte haters and why they are all equally ridiculous"



Over the time that President Rodrigo Duterte has become the top leader of the Philippines, his actions and policies have granted him quite a lot of haters. United Kingdom’s geopolitical expert Adam Garrie has written a piece trying to classify these haters of the president.

It is said that the haters of Dutere come in carrying types, all with stand-out traits.

The first one he mentioned is what the calls "The Sanctimonious Left". According to him, these people are those who believe that Duterte is a facist. He says that this is contrary to Duterte’s actions.

He mentions Duterte’s plan to implement a federal form of government, where local offices will have more power and control over their region. Garrie says that this is proof that the president wants to reduce his power and distribute this across the country.

He adds that Duterte has not shown any signs of his policies and views on issues on either left or right of the political spectrum.

The second type that he mentions are those people “without a sense of humour”.

He says that it is natural for Duterte to tall “jokes and witty comments”, and those who do not find this insulting are those who do not understand them. He adds that if you cannot understand them, it’s either you have no sense of humour, or “objectively stupid”, or cannot understand English.

The third one he states are those who are “snobs on drugs” or unsympathetic to people who have had their loved ones killed or hurt by drug addicts. He says that these people are privileged and selfish. He said that these people would rather like that these drug addicts roam the streets rather than have them arrested or killed.

The fourth he mentions is the one he calls the “neo colonial right”.

According to him, these people are those who cannot accept that the Philippines is breaking away from the United States of America. He says that Duterte has been clear that he does not want any more association with the Americans and is purposely not siding with the country anymore.

He said that there are some people who cannot accept this which is why they hate the president.

The last type are those who say that Duterte kills the freedom of speech of Filipinos.

Garrie says that these people are ridiculous because the mere fact that they are speaking out means that free speech is alive and well in the country.
