Senator Bong Go on Tuesday defended President Rodrigo Duterte’s “red-tagging” of Makabayan bloc organizations, saying that the latter is privy to several pieces of information about Leftist groups given his experiences as former mayor of Davao City.

“Maraming alam si Pangulong Duterte, dati siyang mayor ng Davao City. Kami po, magkasama kami for the past 22 years. Talagang alam namin kung sino ang talagang may linya — sa Left,” Go said during an ambush in Quezon City.

He added that Duterte is telling the truth, saying, “kung ano po ang sinabi ni Pangulong Duterte, totoo po ‘yun. Witness po s’ya sa mga bagay na ‘yan. ‘Wag na po tayong magmaang-maangan pa,” he said.

During his weekly televised address on Monday, Duterte denied the government is red-tagging Makabayan bloc organizations but, instead, is identifying these groups and their dynamics with the CPP-NPA.

The President also mentioned that he trusts the military’s assertion that the groups are mere fronts of the Communist Party of the Philippines.

“We are not red-tagging you. We are identifying you as members in a grand conspiracy comprising all the legal fronts that you have organized headed by NDF (National Democratic Front) and Communist Party of the Philippines,” Duterte said.
