'Don't f*** with us!' Philippine President RAGES at European Union in FURIOUS tirade

Lynsey_ADMIN_Lynsey_ADMIN_ Administrator

PHILIPPINE President Rodrigo Duterte has warned the European Parliament “don’t f*** with us” after he was condemned for his plans to reinstate the death penalty.

The extraordinary rant came as EU bigwigs passed a resolution criticising the leader’s tough stance on drug convicts last week.

European lawmakers said they were “deeply alarmed” by the reintroduction of the death penalty - adding capital punishment is considered “cruel and inhuman”. 

Responding to the remarks, Mr Duterte, who previously referred to Barack Obama as a "son of a whore", once again used colourful language to berate the European Parliament.

  • The death penalty for drug dealers is cruel and inhumane.  I wonder if the effects on the families of the drug dealers victims is kind and thoughtful.

    If the politicians treat people this poorly when they're armed to the teeth,

    just imagine what they'll be willing to do once they've disarmed everyone.

    It's a prickly situation because unlike someone else who dispenses violence, no one is really forcing people to take drugs. If the drug dealer is gang banging around, then sure, that's a problem. 

    But what do we do with the drug dealer who gives something to people by their own choice? What do we do with the drug user who is addicted to drugs and now is dependent upon our help?

    I don't knowing if selling a volunteer a drug is equivalent to the death penalty, at least in my opinion. I don't know if it's even worthy of any punishment at all to be honest - unless these people are coercing those without full understanding, such as young children.

    Then again, if the drug problem is so overwhelming that it requires a dash of autocracy to fix, is this then a good thing? This reminds me of the Opium wars. No one there was forced to do anything, but sometimes a broader issue emerges as a societal disease that can't necessarily be tackled on an individual level.

    I'm actually interested in hearing everyone's thoughts on this, if anyone has any.
