One of the critics of President Rodrigo Duterte, Vice President Leni Robredo, said to the United Nations that many Filipinos do not like the current administration because of the government's drug campaign as it violated the human rights of the people according to the recent comments of TV and radio host Erwin Tulfo.
In a blog post of Mr. Alon Calinao Dy, he said that Robredo should help promote the Philippines to the United Nations instead of insulting the President Duterte to the United nations. Indeed, this is a huge disappointment and let-down to a majority of Filipinos.
Mr. Dy added that if Robredo's motivation is really to help Filipinos to have a better future for the Philippines, she should have known that a lot of Filipinos already died due to the influence of illegal drugs in the country. Many criminals are drug users who often targeted young children and destroyed their future to have a better life.
Robredo said, "we are heartened that the issue of extrajudicial killings in the Philippines today is being discussed in an event such as this. To know that the international community's eyes are on us..."
The vice president continued to insult President Duterte to the United Nations by saying, "some of those who have told us that when there's crime, they normally go to the police,. Now, they don't know where to turn. Our people feel both hopeless and helpless -- a state of mind that we must all take seriously."
Seriously, Ms. Leni Robredo? I don't think President Duterte will be scared of your extrajudicial accusation. I don't think a lot of Filipinos support you as well after you embarrassed the good reputation of the Philippines in front of the international leaders. Remember, illegal drug is one of the biggest problems of our country that you continued to ignore, and to eradicate drug abuse is simply to make our laws effective against users and pushers who seem to forget the rule of law in our country.
The true human rights violators are not actually the government but those people who are under the influence of illegal drugs. I don't know why it's so hard for the vice president to understand this reality. As what Mr. Alon Calinao Dy quote said, "if there are no drug users and pushers, then no more criminals to be dealt with by the government. It is as simple as that."
