Bastos! De Lima calls Duterte a ‘sex-obsessed sociopath’
President Rodrigo Duterte is a “sex-obsessed sociopath” who thinks women are only useful if they can give birth and raise children, and it is manly to promote sexual violence.
This was how detained Sen. Leila de Lima described the President after learning that the Chief Executive “boasted” that he had, in the past, ordered soldiers to shoot female communist rebels in the genitals.
“It seems to be implied that it’s but a fitting punishment because such women preferred joining rebel forces over raising children; he even allegedly went on to point out that, ‘if there is no vagina, it would be useless’,” she said.
“Kung ang isda ay nahuhuli sa bibig, it should be too easy now to catch what this man is all about,” said De Lima, detained at the Phil. National Police Custodial Center on drug charges.
The senator added, “What Duterte said in the past, and to echo it again now that he has terminated peace talks with the CPP, is a threat.”
“It isn’t a threat against the rebels. It is a threat against the soldiers he purports to lead and it is a threat against us, the Filipino people,” she said.
“It is a threat against soldiers because they are being ‘led’ by a person who is unworthy of standing shoulder-to-shoulder with them, much less as their commander-in-chief,” De Lima said.
“Why? Because this is a man that would take the honor, dignity, integrity, patriotism and professionalism of a Filipino soldier, and manipulate it to satisfy his own brutality and bloodlust,” she said.
