Joma Sison has gone insane – Paolo Duterte
Exiled communist leader Jose Maria Sison has become crazy after years of churning out lies and propaganda, former Davao City vice mayor Paolo Duterte said on Friday.
In a Facebook post, Duterte said Sison was a “pathological liar” and a disgrace to the nation as he rejected his allegations he and his father President Duterte were the country’s biggest protectors of drug syndicates.
“Joma Sison’s accusation that my father and I are the biggest protectors of illegal drugs in the country confirms that the founder of the oldest terror group in Southeast Asia is completely losing it,” he said in a Facebook post.
“The statement sounded insanely absurd as it was a repetition of, if not inspired by, an old gossip propagated and sowed around by an anti-Duterte Senator who is also a rabid anti-communist,” he said.
He said Sison was parroting another liar, which indicated how much he was willing to take for the sake of public attention and propaganda.
“It also showed the nature of his politics and principles — where it’s acceptable for enemies to sleep together in one bed, speak one language, and unify forces and work together until the common target is toppled down,” he said.
But the President’s son voiced optimism that Sison’s “insanity” like his revolution would fail.
“And Mr Sison and his organizations — the CPP-NDFP-NPA — will be remembered in history for their contribution in the revolution that victimized the oppressed, the poor, and ultimately, the growth and development of the Philippines,” he said.
“Mr Sison, the father of the oldest terror group in Southeast Asia, is a disgrace to this country,” he said.
