"I Don't Give A Shit About Them" - Philippines President Threatens To Quit "Son Of A Bitch" United Nations

Tyler Durden's picture

While the US media is obsessing over what could happen to the US if the diplomatic debacle that is Donald Trump becomes president (as opposed perhaps to the pathological liar and State Department-for-hire that is HIillary Clinton), the Philippines has a living, breathing example of the worst that a person who has zero regard for the status quo or the establishment, can unleash. Or perhaps the best. We are talking about the country's new president, Rodrigo Duterte, who most recently made headlines for calling the US ambassador to his country an "annoying, homosexual, son of a bitch", yet whose policies, unorthodox as they may be, are working when after some 400 drug dealers were killed in the Philippine government's "war on narco-politics", reportedly another 500,000 turned themselves in.

In Duterte's latest outburst, the Philippine president has threatened that the country could leave the UN, after the organization urged the Philippines to stop executing and killing people linked to drug business and threatened that “state actors” could be punished.

"Maybe we'll just have to decide to separate from the United Nations. If you're that rude, son of a bitch, we'll just leave you," Duterte told reporters in Davao, quoted by Bloomberg.

“I don't give a shit about them,” he added. “They are the ones interfering. You do not just go out and give a shitting statement against a country.”

Calling the UN “inutile", Duterte said the Philippines could invite China, African nations and other countries to create a rival international body. He went further, slamming the UN’s response to other global issues.

Cited by RT, Duterte said “Look at the iconic boy that was taken out from the rubble and he was made to sit in the ambulance and we saw it," Duterte said. The picture of Omran Daqneesh, a five-year-old Syrian boy has recently gone viral around the globe. "Why is it that [the] United States is not doing anything? I do not read you. Anybody in that stupid body complaining about the stench there of death?"

The Philippine leader also slammed the US for its own human rights record, citing the string of shootings involving police and black men that have sparked protests in the U.S. "Why are you Americans killing the black people there, shooting them down when they are already on the ground?" he asked. "Answer that question, because even if it's just one or two or three, it is still human rights violations."

The angry tirade at the news conference in Davao City came after the UN’s special rapporteur on summary executions, Agnes Callamard, urged the Philippines to stop extrajudicial executions and killings, saying “state actors” could be punished for the “illegal killings.”

In many ways, Duterte's response to the UN report is comparable to that by Turkey's president Erdogan, who has not taken kindly to European (and US) criticism for cracking down on, firing or arresting nearly 100,000 people following July's failed Turkish coup.

Meanwhile, in the Philippines, about 900 people have been killed by unidentified attackers since May, when Duterte was elected, and another 665 died at the hands of security forces, according to the national police chief.

Duterte, however, has vehemently denied these accusations, and said that the police only fired in self-defense, while he also lashed out at the UN. He shrugged off the prospect of repercussions that could follow as a result of his remarks.

"I don't give a shit about them. They are the ones interfering,” Duterte said. He also wondered whether UN officials were indeed threatening to jail him and repeated that he was ready to sacrifice his life and presidency for his country.

Needless to say, Duterte has developed a reputation for being very outspoken. As such, we, for one, would be quite entertained by the prospect of an unfiltered and uncut real time summit between Duterte and Trump, should the latter be elected on November 8. We are confident millions of others would too.

Sounds like Philippines has no where to go but up.

is this a statement about QWERTY?

I see now...you just type random letters to 'save your place' high up the page...then think of what to say...I get you now.

For those who did not see his initial post it was 'asdf'

We are definitely in some kind of string theory rabbit hole...

Trump 2016

Gollum in Turkey pivots on a dime to the East

and a Fillipino Mr Chow cleans house and tells the UN to basically "fack off"

seriously who could've imagined this just a year ago.

Duterte's right. The US wags the UN, then IsraHell comes around and wags the US. http://goo.gl/l6d22d

The guy certainly is gaining a lot of respect for standing up to the double standard system of the UN.

Yeah, I kinda like this guy

He called the US ambasador a queer son of a bitch. I liked that but he stoped short of calling Obama the same thing.

Go Duterte!!! This guy has got guts! I've lived in th Philippines on and off for years and still own a condo over there. My wife is a Filipina. Duterte is fighting a corrupt and entreched establishment there and although he may seem to go too far, I could only wish for strong leaders like him and Putin throughout the west instead of snivelling puppets to Rothschild Zionists.

Filipinos are such unbelievably trusting, though gullible people. At least they were.  Now they finally have an advocate for them at the top.  They woke up.

Almost makes me want to go and live there.  But I would feel ashamed and embarrassed because I would look too much like the invaders that are pissing him off.  Better for us both if I cheer from the sidelines so I don't make his job too difficult.

I miss the old Olongopo.

Maybe the guy can restore some of that treasured environment, too.

He definitely doesn't have any problems with foreigners per se. He's very pro-foreign investment, for example. It just pisses him off to no end when they tell him how to run his country. When the UN Human Rights Commission Council is headed by Saudi Arabia, the UN has lost the right to criticise anyone.

Also, when the UN is full speed ahead with their multi-trillion dollar fraud that is "Climate Change", it should be obvious to everyone that the UN is a sham, and the sooner we stop funding them, the better off we will all be.

Yeah - Almost; Because someone might like to have your property at a good price, you won't sell, you'd end up shot dead as a "drug dealer". Just like that.


Remember "Judge Dredd"- judge, jury and executioner? This worked in cartoon world, where it is possible to indoctrinate cops to be incorruptible. In real world, Phillipines no less? Good Luck with that.  

ebear's picture

Thanks for injecting a note of sanity.  Amazing how people on the ZH Cartoon Network continuously fall for these law'n order populist demagogues.  This will all end badly, no doubt in my mind.   Another country added to my no-fly zone.

I always wanted become a UN special rapporteur, but I couldn't speak bullshit.

Leave the Bank controlled UN?  Looks like the bankers will have to retreat back to their CFR and then delegate to Obummer how to proceed.

Oh, heck yeah!  

We need Duterte in the USA!

Sadly if Hitlery gets elected, and all of the powers that be everywhere in the world are going to pull out all of the legal and illegal stops to see that it is so, the UN will be invited in to run the fucking US of A.  All the Billionaires will rejoice.

At least one guy elected somewhere says what needs to be said.  The UN has lost its reason to exist and should be disbanded.

Because black people are gods, and white people are slaves.

Sounds like a national hero to me.

The U.N. is Lucifer's den of vipers.

He just needs to stop swearing and he will be a great statesman.

We need more people willing to put their life on the line at high places to stop this n-W0 madness.

Nationalize the Centr@l B@nk next.

Hang the bankers serving with the Fed. Use piano wire. Yellen first.

hxc's picture

Why nationalize the fed? If something is bad in the hands of bankers it won't suddenly become good in the hands of politicians.

Just get rid of the central bank and let the market decide what to use for money.

I doubt all of the supposed 500,000 were drug dealers. More likely addicts who turned themselves in so they can maybe get treatment(as if the system could handle that many) before their neighbour goes vigilante on their ass. Also, is he actually calling for US intervention in Syria? Because of a picture? He's a second Merkel, except he goes even further!

The UN is mostly just greedy 'crats...has been for a while now.

Read about the U.N.'s Lucis Trust, first called Lucifer Trust. Not only bureaucrats.


bloofer's picture

Many years ago (1978) I worked for Lucis Trust, then located across the street from the UN--for about three months, I think it was. (I had the doofus idea that I wanted to work in publishing.) I was fired. Several people there seemed to hold me in strong dislike. I had read several of the Alice Bailey books and was young enough to be intrigued--rather than properly dismissive, since they consist of very discursive, high-toned gibberish. Employees were mostly typical of any other office environment--except there was one golden boy who was being transferred to Geneva. (Go figure.) I never quite understood how they were mixed up with the UN--and actually thought their supposed UN affiliation was bogus.

I'll have to pursue some of the links, just out of curiousity. Honestly, I still suspect they are just riding the UN coattails as a means of self-promotion to get donations or something. Maybe the high mucky-mucks at the UN think all the obscure blah-blah-blah in the Bailey books holds some kind of future promise for baffling the masses with bullshit.

Keep poking the UN with a sharp stick Duterte.  If yours breaks just let me know, and I'll sharpen you another.

The breakdown in the UN is such that UN troops introduce cholera into Haiti while on a relief mission there. Confronted with evidence, the UN claimed diplomatic immunity and declared lawsuits against it to be "undeliverable".

While introducing a deadly disease to a crisis-wrecked nation is wrong, covering it up is a world-class crime against humanity, like using poison gas on civilians, etc etc. Who has diplomatic immunity for crimes against humanity, as established by the Nurenberg Trials?

The UN is a US/Western front organization for One World Government, just look at who pays the lion's share of membership dues.

The UN is Satanic, through and through. Burn it to the ground with Rockefeller chained to the front doors.
