Gardner’s Pal Rodrigo Duterte: Shoot ‘Em In The P—y

Sen Cory Gardner, Filipino strongman Rodrigo Duterte.

VICE News reports on the latest swashbuckling pronouncement from Rodrigo Duterte, strongman President of the Philippines who appeared on local political radars last year after a controversial unannounced state visit to Manila from Sen. Cory Gardner:

Rodrigo Duterte last week directed his soldiers to specifically target women rebel fighters by shooting them in the vagina, according to local reports.

Addressing a group of former communist rebels, the Philippines president said his armed forces should not kill female rebels but shoot them in their genitals because without them they are useless.

“Tell the soldiers. There’s a new order coming from the mayor. We won’t kill you. We will just shoot your vagina,” Duterte reportedly said. “If there is no vagina, it would be useless.” [Pols emphasis]

An official government translation of the speech, given on Feb. 7, replaced the word vagina with a dash. The transcript says the audience laughed in response…

Duterte is known for violent crudities in his speeches to the troops prosecuting his vicious war against drug smugglers, as well as his comments about women that openly condone and even celebrate rape–but this latest comment combines those two themes into something truly politically toxic to Duterte’s friends in the West, like President Donald Trump.

And of course, local reporters should ask Sen. Gardner for comment too! Perhaps Cory and Rodrigo will have a friendly chat about it next time Sen. Gardner is in town for a photo-op.

    Do you suppose farm boy Cory was sweating in the tropical heat, or because he knew this photo would cost him?

  2. The realistThe realist says:

    Did Gardner ever provide an even slightly plausible explanation for his trip there to shake Duterte's hand? I don't recall hearing anything.

    Second question: Did he wash his hand afterward?

      He's a Senator- and you are not ( I think).

      Close to one-million Philippine golfers and not a single trump golf resort  — yet . . .

      He said that he went there to discuss human rights and trade deals. I think it was about the Chinese islands legislation that Gardner, as a member of the Foreign Relations Committee, had authored.

      The US is jockeying for position, wanting the Phillipines as an ally against China. China is building artificial islands in the South China Sea, and trying to limit overflight and shipping lanes.

      The Phillipines is very involved in this conflict.

      And, the Phillipines also has both a genuine popular uprising movement against Duterte’s autocracy, and at the same time, an ISIS affiliate, Maute, that is being very successful in taking territory. Duterte’s people despise him and Maute’s exploiting that.

      So for economic reasons, Gardner was willing to make nice with Duterte, the mass murderer and wannabe ammosexual rapist.
