Duterte ‘insulted’ when Trudeau raised human rights issue

Updated

By Argyll Cyrus Geducos

President Duterte was not quite happy when Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau raised the issue of human rights and extrajudicial killings related to his drug war in a private conversation Tuesday.

Trudeau revealed in a press conference in Pasay City that he raised the issue with Duterte and that the President was quite receptive to his comments.

He also said that he impressed upon Duterte the need to respect the rule of law.

According to Duterte, he is not obligated to explain to anybody the situation in the country related to his administration’s all out drug war.

“You know, I was elected by the people of the Republic of the Philippines. I only answer to the Filipino people,” he said.

According to Duterte, he is insulted whenever a foreigner criticizes his drug war as they do not really know about the domestic affairs of the country.

“I said I will not explain. It is a personal and official insult,” Duterte said.

“That is why you hear me throwing down epithets and curses, ‘bullsh*t,’ because it angers me,” he added.

“When you are a foreigner, you don’t know what exactly is happening in this country,” he added.

Duterte, meanwhile, encouraged other world leaders to not rely on data on the drug war deaths provided by his political enemies.

Trudeau earlier explained before members of the Philippine and international media that Canada has always discussed issues on human right with all of its dialogue partners, not just the Philippines.

“I also mentioned human rights, the rule of law and specifically, extra-judicial killings as being an issue that Canada is concerned with.” Trudeau said, referring to his conversation with Duterte where he said the President has been receptive.

“Canada has earned a reputation of having strong and sometimes frank, always frank, sometimes firm discussion around the rule of law and human rights with partners around the world,” he added.

“Countries have accepted that and expect that even of Canada,” he continued.

According to Trudeau, it is important to talk about human rights, even admitting that Canada has its own share of instances where some of its citizens get neglected or marginalized.

“We know that talking about human rights is an essential part of a path forward, it must be done in an honest and frank way, but it has to be done,” Trudeau said.

“We have to talk about the high expectation we must have to protect life, to uphold the law and human rights,” he added.

    Why DuDirty feels like insulted when human rights issue was raised by Canadian Prime Minister where his human rights violation is crystal clear. He sounds like following the footstep of Trump where all news against him are denied as faked news.

        You and this Meltdown have the right to say anything against my President as I as well have the right to come to the defense of my country and the one who is representing my country. You need to recognize that Trump is not a politician who YES for a NO and vice versa. He and Duterte are straightforward men and this is why I say they are not politicians to always need to speak with sugar coated words. To them what is good for their fellowmen they do and no politics that they need to go to fast food restaurant to show people that they are men of the masses. This is the kind of politicians who say YES (I like Joly bee) for a NO and again because of politics in the brain.

          Trump is a proven liar, an obvious narcissist, and way over his head. Very much like your Duterte, only less homicidal.
          The good news for Americans (I’m US-CAN dual national) is that Trump doesn’t have any death squads in his employ., and it looks like impeachment is going to happen at the latest right after next year’s midterm elections.
          You on the other hand are going to be stuck with Duterte for a long time, and then possibly his daughter for decades longer.

            Marunong ka bang mag tagalog o hindi ka nakatira sa Pinas. To know the definition of EJK is a universal language but you may have a different opinion and understanding. UN Human Right Commission have posted DuDirty EJK activities as human rights violation world wide where any or all country leaders are aware of. You seems to be unaware how local law enforcers in the country professed their style of self-defense to justify killing. They shoot the SUSPECTS first before firing a warning shot. They planted gun on SUSPECTS on incorrect hand which should have been a left hand and not on the right hand. Your logic doesn’t sound a Filipino familiary with local scenarios.

    It is obvious to me that Trudeau visited the Philippines only for the purpose earning “pogi” points. That is the reason for all those publicity stunts with Jollibee and bragging to the foreign press that he could not be stopped from raising the ejk issues with Duterte.

    Who is he to raise those ALLEGED issues on human rights violations when his own country is one of the few countries that legalizes abortion AT ANY STAGE OF THE MOTHER’S PREGNANCY. What a shame! The rights of the most innocent and helpless unborn baby is violated in his country and he has the gall to lecture us on violation of human rights. That is right about a 100,000 babies are aborted in their country every year for at least the past several years. Considering Canada’s population is only 36,000,000 and that only about 380,000 babies are born every year in that country, that number of aborted babies is a very big number.

    Shame on you Trudeau. You are nothing but a suit.

            Educational talents? Are you serious?
            Most Filipino immigrants in Canada arrive without having even finished, by Canadian standards, high school. This is not to say that Canada discriminates on that basis, but you can’t actually believe that the only nation on the planet that had a Grade 1-10 educational system is known internationally for its education.
            Sadly, Filipinos are known for providing cheap labor–mostly in nations whose economies are based on pliable, cheap foreign workers. The vast majority of FIlipinos working abroad are doing unskilled jobs, at least according to your own DOLE.

            The point remains–most adults in the Philippines labor market at this moment had a 1-10 education, not the K-12 education employed in Canada.

            Well a nation cannot be prosperous overnight UNLESS a country whose fastidious mother country was having vast empires and now just inherited from the those destructive trades between Africa and Europe inherited by SOME Canadians who wants to project themselves to the whole world that they toiled hard for the harvest they prune of what Canada is now. I say SOME because there are millions of good Canadians who are humble not like your Tradue whose old folks came from nowhere.

            Your knowledge of Western history is limited at best. Canada is the product of two pioneering cultures, French and British, and many indigenous cultures.
            The irony is that your country DID inherit much from a global empire–but have repeatedly squandered it. The Philippines was the most advanced nation in Asia when America granted you independence.

        Who are you to tell the Filipinos that Canada does not like us? We have our own country and we are fully independent and no one can ever tell us what we have to do. So we don’t want lectures from you people as we don’t interfere in your domestic affair. If there are Fil migrants in your country, that’s their personal choice not as a national issue BECAUSE WE ARE NOT REFUGEES. We people are not considered as refugees but offering our talents in terms of doing work for your country and people. We have education and mostly in the field of medicine, e.g. nursing, and therapists not to mention our engineers. You must understand that Canada does not need to educate its people to do what the Fil nurses and engineers can do for the Canadians when they migrate to Canada. How ingrate you are if indeed you are a Canadian. AGAIN WE FILIPINOS ARE NOT SEEKING REFUGE WHAT WE ARE DOING IS TO OFFER OUR TALENTS; WE WORK HARD AND NOT TO ASK FOR ALMS AS REFUGEES.

      Trudeau visited your little banana republic to attend the ASEAN and EAC summits.
      It really isn’t his fault that this year’s host is a murderer.
      Abortion on demand is not controversial in Canada. Fetuses are not people. Your religious belief tells you otherwise, but policy in Canada is not based on belief or superstition but on the premise that the government serves the people. The state has no right to tell a woman what to do or not do with her body.
      You will have a hard time understanding any of this.
      But look at what Canada has–all the things that you do not. Not just abortion, but divorce, peace bonds, universal healthcare, education that promotes independent thinking, a credible military defense, clean government, utilities that work, etc, etc.
      You should listen to Trudeau. Listen to success and try to learn something.

          Are you sure? All your nurses and engineers are “doing works” in Canada?
          I thought most of your nurses and engineers were unemployed and trapped in the Philippines?
          Haven’t you ever seen those long, long lines outside the Western embassies in Manila every weekday morning? You can call them whatever you want, but they are people desperate to move to a safe and prosperous country.
          And we don’t need to be grateful to Filipino immigrants. We allow them to move here, we integrate them into our communities, we provide public services in Tagalog or Cebuano if they need it, along with great healthcare and education for their kids. We love our Filipino-Canadian brothers and sisters.
          (And the same in the States–I am a dual national)
          How many of the Filipinos who immigrate to Canada and the US–not the OFWs, but genuine immigrants–and return to the Philippines? Not very many.
          Why?
          Because the best life for Filipinos isn’t in the Philippines. It is in the West.

No way can any of our people who know the truth that our country becomes as what you insulted say a banana republic and now your government has send ship full of garbage and does not like to take back.

            The Canadian government never sent a ship full of garbage.
            A Canadian businessman imported containers of what he says is plastic waste meant for recycling in the Philippines, and what your government says is household waste. (Personally I will take the word of just about anyone over that of one of the world’s most corrupt governments)
            Trudeau was trying to help the many Filipinos who suffer under the authoritarian and inept rule of that mumbling old murderer you elected president.

Of course no one because this is known universally and THIS IS WHY WE HAVE A MAN NAME RODRIGO DUTERTE to lift our morale high to the highest peak of excellence and so your President Trudeau is not the right person to give lectures to my President on what he has to do. Who does not know about human rights? Only those who are hypocrite can say that my President needs to, and why? This is because of politics and your Trudeau does not know to whom he is directing his bully lectured messages because he wants to make it appear that he knows fully well what is going on within my country and people, but only relying on the media supported by those who don’t like the face of my President and simply want to grab power not during election.

            Trudeau is Prime Minister; the head of government. Queen Elizabeth is the head of state. Canada has no president.
            Anyhow, Trudeau said what he had to say in a civil manner. He had every right to say it, just as you have every right to reject his advice.
            In fact, he really needed to say it–Canadians would not look fondly upon a prime minister who shook a tyrant’s hand and didn’t point out that Canada doesn’t approve of authoritarianism.
            Your assumption that Trudeau, or anyone else, is somehow misled by slanted media is pretty ridiculous. Firstly because Duterte has been very clear about his policy of murder–he campaigned on it and he delivered once elected. Secondly because Canada has a capable intelligence service, CSIS, and is one of the Five Eyes. Trudeau likely has access to better intelligence about Duterte’s government than most senators of the Philippines. Third, Trudeau would likely find the Philippine Liberal Party almost as corrupt and craven as he does Duterte–he is the head of government of a G7 nation; he is not some provincial ghost employee.
            You should seriously listen to what he had to say. Canada has achieved success far beyond the Philippines; if you want your nation to succeed you should emulate those who have already achieved success. That’s how most successful nations did it–including both of mine.

            Listen fellows who are following this discussion. I had
            finished up a meeting with a colleague and we had a nice discussion about extra
            The definitions of ejk must be redefined and move forward from there. Here are the things we may both agree and on the basis of what we both agreed we may suggest that there should be procedure on defining EJK. Here under are the points of references:
            1 Every country has its own conundrums and so history tells us that in order to control the temperaments of the inhabitants many countries are ruled by kings, queens, emperors, dictators and many more culminating to abuses not only upon their own people but upon other people not of their own kinds disregarding the anonymity of the inhabitants of the weaker nations. Therefore this has to be recognized
            in the definition of EJK.
            2. Today in our time there are remnants of the old day’s mentality notwithstanding. Some of these countries on the context of their being prosperous, which they inherited from their imperial fastidious mother country, have their own definition of human right that they imposed on the weaker nations.
            2.1 To them illegal drugs proliferation can be legalized, same sex marriage can as well be legalized same thing as abortion, which all these things are considered abhorrent to some weaker countries, i.e. the Philippines.
            2.2 To some of the prosperous countries respect to the customs and traditions of the people of other countries is meaningless because they have their own definition of human rights. To them killings in self defense are absolutely EJK and no amount of persuasion can be entertained and they have the right to interfere in the internal affairs
            of the weaker countries arrogantly simply because they are from rich countries. These have to be recognized as well in the definition of EJK.

            Due to very limited space, the above mentioned references for inclusion to the definition of Human Right may suffice in containing a never ending discussion on human rights.

            You’re very old, huh?
            The definition of human rights is already set in international law–your nation was one of signatories. You can easily find a Tagalog text of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights online–although you do not seem like the type of person who is interested in self-education.
            As far as values go–nothing succeeds like success. By any metric the quality of life in Canada exceeds that of the Philippines.
            Do you really believe there is no link between values and success? Between society and prosperity? You make the link between progressive policy (same sex marriage, drug decriminalization, etc) and wealthy nations, but you don’t follow it to causation. It isn’t a coincidence that poor countries are also those that cling onto cultural norms from the past. A society like the Philippines could never have developed the technology we are now both using to communicate because it is trapped in the past–hobbled by traditionalism and superstition and obedience to authority.
            You can adopt the superficial aspects of Western culture–even at the recent ASEAN gala most of the entertainment was appropriated from my culture–but refusing to either adopt the parts of Western culture that promote prosperity or chart your own, indigenous path to a less rigid (and more honest) culture has sentenced you to failure. Could there be any better example of backwards reactionism than the election of someone like Duterte?

            Well from the Filipinos standpoint my intruding to Philippine affairs sir, It is CANADA who dumped those garbage in the Philippines.

            This is the same chain of thought when you people from Canada says that the Philippine President is a murderer.

            You better make sure your facts are true to their core when you make accusations to the highest elected official of the land. Because when people strike back at your ignorance. It will be a sad day for you.

            That is why there is something called “state sovereignty” , wherein other states /countries are precluded from intervening on another state’s affairs. Would you want me to go to your own house and tell you what you should do and what you should not do?

            Obviously, you would say NEVER,because I don’t know everything that is happening inside your house because I’m an outsider.

            That is what the President is trying to tell other world leaders sir!
            And we Filipinos are in the REAL Battleground and we were for the longest time caught up on those real battles.

            Your president has said, in his own words, just recently again in Vietnam, that he is a murder.
            He bragged about stabbing someone to death when he was sixteen. He bragged about using an Uzi to kill a drug suspect. He bragged about pushing someone out of a helicopter.
            Do you need links to watch him in his own words say these things?

No one is critical about you. On the contrary the Filipinos are not racists and hence, for us to be critical of other is not in our language.

            We’re not the GCC little guy. We’re not inviting in Filipinos to work as our poorly paid slaves, we allow people from other nations to become Canadian. This is not a patron-client relationship; this is not about reciprocity or gratitude.

Truth cannot be discussed because a principle can never ever be discussed as it remain true no matter what will happen it remains true. How ingrates these people are who remain racists for all eternity as if they will not rust six feet below the ground.

            Your point about the “superiors” of Philippine military is sad. The Philippines was part of the United States–an unincorporated Commonwealth–during WWII. The US and Australia were instrumental in the liberation of the Philippines. There is a monument in Palo you might want to check out.

            He bragged about murdering someone with a knife when he was sixteen just last week–TWO DAYS BEFORE TRUDEAU HUMILIATED HIM.
            So either he is a murderer or he is a liar who wants people to think he is a murderer.
            Which is more despicable?
            What was even more disturbing, and most commented on, because it wasn’t the first time Duterte boasted of murder, was that the audience, FIlipino expats in Vietnam, thought it was funny.
            His police chief isn’t much better; anyone who believes any numbers coming out of a notoriously corrupt government is pretty gullible. But then again, you think that fetuses are people and were a product of the only Grade 10 education in the world.

    Trudeau, afterall, is an immature leader. Figures -he’s young and an attention-wh0re. His Tondo Jollibee stint spells it all – he’s deviant. He would delve into issues which he wants to be the talk of the town or be sensational. In this issue,the YELLOWTARDS and LP-allied MEDlA had influenced Trudeau, and this young Canadian is all too willing to jump the gun just to gain media mileage and sensationalism at the expense of truth and validation. He is too gullible and definitely has no idea that the political opposition Liberal Party (the election losers) is just using him. He has no idea that the YELLOWTARDS just coined this false news EJK, trying to bring Duterte’s government down, and by influencing the people to rally against the government, thus putting their LP bet VP into presidency.
    The deaths in the drug campaign are legit, on those drug suspects who violently resisted arrest and shoot it out with the authorities. Other deaths were done by drug syndicates purging their ranks and police scalawags, who are despised by the government.
    The rights of TENS OF MILLIONS OF INNOCENT FILIPINOS victimized by the drug menace are of PARAMOUNT IMPORTANCE THAN THE RIGHTS OF THESE FEW DRUG LORDS AND DRUG PUSHERS. The streets are now safe even at night. The communities and business environments are thriving. Progress is in sight with a drug-free Philippines.
    TRUDEAU SHOULD REALIZE THIS AND NOT JUST BELIEVE THESE YELLOWTARD LOSERS. He should stay away from yellow people and must not play false politics too much at the expense of the future generations.

          Duterte promised murder as a policy and he delivered it. But you are too much of a coward to admit it–you liked the idea, you voted for the idea, and you support the idea. Instead of being an adult about it you bleat on conspiracy theories about vigilantes, claim that “drug lords” are targeted when the facts are otherwise, and claim tremendous success while your own idol claims that in fact the problem is not solved and there are still millions of addicts roaming around your streets.
          Which is it? The drug problem is over? Or it is still a national emergency? You can’t have it both ways.
          Your country has serious problems that have nothing to do with drugs–problems that are not being addressed.
          Keep on doing it the Filipino way–ignore successful policy from other countries, don’t question authority, respect murderers–and keep on being a failed state.

            Yeah you are proud being an inheritor of a the British Empire. That empire by the way was instrumental in bringing chaos in the world. You did not labor hard to rightfully say, “I am rich” because you just inherited your wealth. You did not work for it and now you should be humble.

            What an absurd notion. Obviously you are using it rhetorically but is it possible that you really are so ignorant of historical fact that you can believe that?
            The irony is that the Philippines inherited a great deal from its former imperial overlord but has mostly squandered it. From representative democracy, now a hollow sham of political kabuki and back-room kleptocracy, to the advanced flood control infrastructure of Manila, now hopelessly clogged because the people who run the government of the Philippines would rather steal public money than try to manage solid waste. It is really a pity. At least St Lukes is still a world-class hospital.

There must be good reasons why he did that and could be for self defense. In your definition of ejk includes killing in self defense, which is not in our definition.

            The troll I was replying to called me yellow, and he didn’t mean Asian.
            Racist? You wrote: ” Yellow race are not racists.”
            The fact that you believe in the concept of “race” and have attributed a particular characteristic to a “race” is redolent of racism.
            You can believe whatever you want–you are clearly backwards and miseducated and also among those very few FIlipinos who benefit from the status quo in your society. Personally I judge people by their words and their actions. Duterte campaigned on killing criminals, and criminals began to be killed en masse by the police after his election; quod erat demonstrandum he made good on his promises.
            What I can’t understand is why so few Duterte supporters have the guts to admit what is happening, and that they support it.
            Perhaps it is because those people likely to support authoritarianism tend to be very insecure.

            Did you say no proof on DuDirty’s EJK bonanza, read my lips. UN Human Rights Commission has branded DuDirty as human rights violator. You want more proof? Dig those thousands of decomposing bodies of petty Filipinos killed without mercy and due process of law. Are you not aware of DuDirty public disclosure offering bounty to all law enforcers in the country who can kill SUSPECTED drug users? You want more proof? Ask the son of DuDirty, Paolo Dudirty who is one of the biggest drug dealer in the country and failed attempt to smuggle P6.4 Billion drugs in the country.

            Who are telling lies here? On the contrary to what you are saying. Is it a thorn in your neck about the promise of MY PRESIDENT DUTERTE and not your Tradue? We are not interfering in your country’s internal affair. Your being not invited to be within our internal affair is stupidity of the highest order. We certainly don’t need your comment and even for a second. You should feel ashamed of yourself because this is completely under the domain of the Filipinos. We have never ever gone to your country’s media and interfere in the internal affair of your country. Your Tradue came as a human being in our country with all the hospitality we provided and when he left the country, he was not a human being but similar to a dog because he did not even say thanks for welcoming me. On the contrary he insulted our President as if he owns our country. He simply put every Canadian to shame for being unprofessional.

            Canadians feel the opposite.
            If Trudeau had shaken hands and taken a picture with that little murderous tyrant and NOT said anything he would have been at risk of losing his job.
            As I said I am American and Canadian. Both have advantages and disadvantages. Glad-handing fascist thugs ruling poor countries has been a practical and ethical weakness of American foreign policy for a long time–Obama at least tried to turn back that tide..
            But Canada holds to higher ethical standard in foreign relations.
            And besides–only for the insecure and weak are mere words considered “interference.”

          Perhaps that is what your Grade 10 Thomasite education taught you, or rather mis-taught you, but you are intelligent enough to be literate so it must occur to you that there were some changes in Canada after independence from France and the UK.
          Or perhaps, being from a culture that refuses change, you cannot understand the nature or progress or the value in and rewards of hard work.

        Well then, both are shameful countries. Who can deny this? Nothing is perfect in this world. Canadians can tell to the whole world that their country is the best in the whole world and that is only a Subjective Evidence because not all the peoples the world over approved. This is why my President Duterte wants to implement a kind of governmental management that no one yet in the whole history of our country did in terms of having the political WILL to do- a NOVEL WAY OF GOVERNANCE in order to uplift our morale and be proud like the Japanese who are proud of their country and very few are renouncing their citizenship because of love of country.

    Trudeau may look like a movie star, smile a lot, pick up babies, join you in selfies and go for chicken at Jollibee. But he is also a “trust-fund kid”, a lying, good-for-nothing politician who knew he had to perform a song-and-dance routine here, in order to distract starry-eyed Filipinos who may remember that he promised to bring back his country’s garbage with him when he returned. Shame on you, Trudeau.

    This Mr. Trudeau must not talk about issues that don’t concern Canada because he MUST first know what is happening in the Philippines where there are multitude of our people who became addicted by illegal drug merchants. Trudeau appears to be giving supports to the drug merchants who indirectly murdered many of our school children ( I was a victim of this as my six grader child died due to drug) especially children of OFWs because they know that they have the means to buy their products. What Trudeau has to do with his Jolybee diplomacy is TO TAKE BACK THE GARBAGE CANADA SENT TO THE PHILIPPINES without delay. Canada a colony of the Brits imperial colonial master must understand first what is happening within the Philippines and not to rely on political propaganda. TRUDEAU YOU ARE NOT WELCOME ANYMORE IN THE PHILIPPINES. DO NOT THINK THAT YOU APPEAR TO BE HANDSOME TO PEOPLE WHO SPEAK SUGAR COATED WORDS ABOUT YOU!!! YOU ARE UGLY IN THE EYES AND TO MANY OF MY FELLOW FILIPINOS EXCEPT THOSE WHO ARE DOING THEIR BEST TO TAKE THE PRESIDENCY OF DU30 BY ALL MEANS.

    Wow, so this feminized man, snowboard instructor, french language teacher and liberal party fanboy is now telling us how to handle the war against drugs? Makes sense, because in Canada, they enable drug consumption by having centers where people can inject heroin at the expense of taxpayers. Why don’t you pack some of that trash you sent here in your suitcase, Trudeau, and leave. You are nothing but a politically correct cry-baby-in-chief of the west.

    Listen fellows who are following this discussion. I had finished up a meeting with a colleague and we had a nice discussion about extra judicial killings (EJK). We had the definition exactly reversed between us and yet we are both Filipinos and we were not talking with each other using the language of the streets though. The outcome of our discussion is to standardize
    the definitions and move forward from there. Here are the things we both agreed and on the basis of what we both agreed we suggested that there should be procedure on defining EJK. Here under are the points of references:

    1 Every country has its own conundrums and so history tells us that in order to control the
    temperaments of the inhabitants many countries are ruled by kings, queens, emperors, dictators and many more culminating to abuses not only upon their own people but upon other people not of their own kinds disregarding the anonymity of the inhabitants of the weaker nations. Therefore this has to be recognized in the definition of EJK.
    2. Today in our time there are remnants of the old day’s mentality notwithstanding. Some of these countries on the context of their being prosperous, which they inherited from their imperial fastidious mother country, have their own definition of human right that they imposed on the weaker nations.
    2.1 To them illegal drugs proliferation can be legalized, same sex marriage can as well be
    legalized same thing as abortion, which all these things are considered abhorrent
    to some weaker countries, i.e. the Philippines.
    2.2 To some of the prosperous countries respect to the customs and traditions of the people of other countries is meaningless because they have their own definition of human rights. To them killings in self defense are absolutely EJK and no amount of persuasion can be entertained and they have the right to interfere in the internal affairs of the weaker countries arrogantly simply because they are from rich countries. These have to be recognized as well in the definition of EJK.
    Due to very limited space, the above mentioned references for inclusion to the definition of Human Right may suffice in containing a never ending discussion on human rights.
