Duterte says Mindanaoans also brutal: Mas mababa lang kami sa Abu Sayyaf!
President Rodrigo Duterte has appeared to reinforce the negative perception about Mindanaoans by saying they are just a little less violent than the Abu Sayyaf group.
In a speech during Masbate governor Antonio Kho’s birthday Wednesday (January 9), Duterte reiterated his vow to kill drug pushers until the end of his term.
“Yung mga taga-Maynila sinabi ko p*** ‘wag ninyo akong sisihin, I told you I will kill you. Hindi lang kayo naniwala kasi akala ninyo bale kami tagaMindanao. Ay diyan kayo nagkamali. Medyo ano lang kami mababa lang kami konti sa Abu Sayyaf,” he said.
Duterye said drug addiction is a serious problem that needs to be addressed because it destroys families.
“You want to destroy a family or galit ka sa isang pamilya, all you have to do is to make one or two of the children, durugista, may problema na ‘yan all time. ‘Pag may anak ka na durugista wala na, sira lahat. The family becomes dysfunctional,” he said.
Duterte said he is willing to go to jail in exchange for solving the country’s drug problem.
“Magpakulong ako ubusin ko itong mga ‘to. Wala sa akin kulungin mo ako. Seventy-three na ako. Magbilang ka na lang ilang taon wala na,” he said.
