Duterte To Female Rebels: We Will Shoot Your Vagina

13 February 2018

Pliant servant of the capitalist US empire Rodrigo Duterte is threatening to shoot *communist* rebels in their vaginas, which is why the Pentagon and their corporate media lackeys don’t spend hours a day fantasizing about overthrowing his government. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss.

“President Rodrigo Duterte has been branded a misogynist and “macho-fascist” after he ordered soldiers to shoot female communist rebels in the vagina.

In a speech to over 200 former communist soldiers in Malacañang last week, the Philippines president gave a directive of what to do with female guerrilla fighters. “‘There’s a new order coming from the mayor, ‘We will not kill you. We will just shoot you in the vagina’”, said Duterte. He went on to say that without their vaginas, women would be “useless”.

Duterte mentioned the Visayan word “bisong”, meaning vagina, repeatedly throughout the speech, although it was later censored from an official Palace transcript, replaced simply with a dash. However, the remarks were recorded as having drawn laughter from the audience.

The crude orders drew anger from human rights organisations and women’s groups in the region. “It is just the latest in a series of misogynist, derogatory and demeaning statements he has made about women”, said Carlos H Conde, the Philippines researcher for Human Rights Watch.”

Duterte urges soldiers to shoot women in the vagina

HUMAN rights activists in the Philippines have condemned President Rodrigo Duterte for urging soldiers to shoot women in the vagina to render them “useless.”

Mr Duterte made the comments to 200 former Maoist rebels in Malacanang last week, saying of female Maoist fighters: “Tell the soldiers: ‘There’s a new order coming from the mayor [Mr Duterte]. We will not kill you. We will just shoot you in the vagina’.”

The government later censored the official transcript to remove the Visayan word for vagina.

Campaign group Karapatan said yesterday that Mr Duterte had “distinguished himself as a frothing-in-the-mouth fascist who incites the worst violations of international humanitarian law.”

House of Representatives member Emmi de Jesus said his words furthered “impunity” and took “state terrorism against women and the people to a whole new level.”

During his election campaign in 2016, Mr Duterte “joked” about a 1989 prison riot in which an Australian missionary was raped and murdered, saying that he should have been the first to rape her.

“I was angry because … the mayor [Mr Duterte] should have been first.”

Mr Duterte has already offered bounties for the deaths of communists — “No need to bring me the body, bring me the head, put it in a styrofoam,” he recently declared: here.

    • You are right, Valerie! Echoes of the Marcos dictatorship, and of Trump. Though even Trump, so far, has not used such bloody sexist language in his crusade against ‘godless communism’ in Cuba and Venezuela.

  1. JAPAN: Just 20 of the 19,628 people who applied for asylum in the country last year were granted refugee status by the government.

    That was a drop from the 28 people accepted in 2016, when 10,901 people requested asylum.

    The country with the most applicants — 4,895 — was the Philippines, where an “anti-drug” crackdown has seen thousands killed by the police and vigilantes.

  2. INDONESIA: The police are defending giving their top award to Philippines police chief Ronald dela Rosa, who has led the country’s “anti-drugs” crackdown in which cops and vigilantes have killed over 10,000 people.

    Indonesian police chief General Tito Karnavian had praised Mr dela Rosa for his “rock star-like inspiration” on how to fight the war on illegal drugs.

    Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte offered soldiers a £350 bounty yesterday for each Maoist rebel they kill.
