Duterte claims US billionaire George Soros is behind the hate campaign against his drug campaign
President Rodrigo Duterte has identified American philanthropist and financier George Soros as the man behind a well-funded and well-organized plot to paint him as a mass murderer in the eyes of the Western World with his lethal campaign against illegal drugs.
In a speech in Manila Hotel Friday night, Duterte sad that Soros’ Human Rights Watch, which received a $100 million grant from the American billionaire in 2010, bankrolled the local nongovernment organizations that have mounted a vilification campaign against him in the local and international media.
“Sa EJK (extrajudicial killings), mga Amerikano nakisali. Marami mga sosyal dit na NGO na funded ny Human Rights Watch ng New York. Kay Soros yan, yung financier, grant nya yan, meron na yan sila dito, meron na yan sila funding money,” said Duterte.
Duterte said that Soros and his paid institutions were looking for targets of their human rights propaganda to justify their funding.
Soros is a brilliant money manager who makes money out of currency woes of countries such as England in 1992 and the Asian financial crisis in 1997. He has since used his funds to be a power broker in the US and the global stage where he has taken on issues from the environment to human rights.
