Duterte steering PH to godless communism
There is no doubt in my mind that the leftist militants who recently stormed the US Embassy on Roxas Boulevard and defied crowd control authorities were emboldened by the angry words and all the nonsense mouthed by President Duterte against the Americans, especially during and immediately after his state visit to cash-rich China where he behaved like a long-lost friend of the communist plutocrats.
In the wake of the Permanent Court of Arbitration’s ruling in favor of our rights to parts of the so-called South China Sea and against China, were those communist loudmouths in our midst ever seen gathering and protesting near the Chinese Embassy, against China, for not honoring that judgment and trampling upon our dignity as a people?
I campaigned hard and voted for Duterte because of his main platform to tackle the illegal drug menace in this country with draconian measures. But I now regret having done so for not having been informed earlier that, high in his priorities, is his personal agenda to steer this country toward the path of godless communism.
I definitely did not sign up for that kind of crap—and who says only the President has the right to curse in anger?
