    DAVAO City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte continued to reap scorn and criticism for his outburst on the rape and killing of an Australian missionary more than two decades ago.

    Senator Grace Poe on Monday called the mayor a threat to democracy, while Vice President Jejomar Binay lambasted Duterte for his “flimsy” excuse to quell rising public anger.

    Poe, who recently topped the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) mobile survey, said methods being advocated by Duterte could threaten democracy.

    She noted that the methods espoused by the mayor in addressing peace and order problems are “very concerning” because these would show he was willing to do anything regardless of the cost.

    “Absolutely, his methods could threaten our freedom and democracy,” Poe said.
    Duterte’s supporters, according to her, may emulate the ways of the mayor.

    “The truth is that followers tend to do what their leader is doing. So if they think that what he [Duterte] is doing is right, they will also do it,” the senator said.

    Binay, meanwhile, said Duterte’s excuse that he was merely expressing his anger over the killing of Australian evangelist Jaqueline Hamill is illogical.

    “Wala namang logic ‘yon [There is no logic to it],” he told reporters in Cagayan de Oro City (Misamis Oriental).

    “Kaya lang daw niya nasabi ‘yon dahil galit siya sa murderer. Ano naman ang relasyon noong gagahasain niya ‘yon doon sa galit niya sa murderer? Paanong paglalabas ng galit ilalabas niya ‘yong kaniyang sexual perversion? [He said he made those statements because he was angry at the murders. But how do you tie that to his remarks that he should have been the first to abuse the victim? How can it be an angry outburst when he showed his sexual perversion],” the Vice President said.

    Duterte said he was merely being himself when he made the remarks.

    “Ganoon talaga ako magsalita, galing ako sa baba eh. ‘Di naman ako anak ng cono [I really talk that way, I was poor. I am not a rich man’s son],” he was quoted as saying.

    But Binay said not all people raised in poverty are insensitive.

    “Don’t insult the poor. The poor have dignity,” the Vice President added.

    Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. said Duterte’s comments were “inappropriate” and “lacking sensitivity to a victim of crime.”

    “We were surprised. I think he took a step too far. He was joking. He should be sensitive to the victim. He speaks his mind. There was no filter,” he told reporters at a luncheon held at the Manila Polo Club in Makati City (Metro Manila) hosted by former justice Manuel Lazaro and several Ilocanos.

    1. Poe is a professional liar, because in the US to cover up for yourself, people tend to lie to save their necks, kasi walang batabata system, kung meron m an konti at minimal. at talagang maraming magrereklamo pag me batabata system. Isa na ako doon. So poe is mandurugas talaga ang character nia, don’t be misled by the poe name, he is not a poe, probably a marcos, but she refuses to have a blood test with bongbong because to get the support of Aquino, she has to stay away from the marcoses. maybe if she wins, then she and the marcoses will unite and rule our country.holy cow!

    2. We need a descent leader not a criminal and rapist like DUTERTE.the way he talk is not the character to be the president.Even religious group like CBCP is awaring the Filipine people to think of voting him.how you can get more diplomatic relation with other countries if your president is stupid as duterte.let us go for a clean and honest candidate like POE.

    3. Isipin nyo lang kung pano ipapatupad ni duterte plano niya ipapatay mga criminal, gagamitin niya mga pulis at sundalo para pumatay? kung magkaganun tingin niyo hindi masisira konsensiya ng mga pulis at sundalo? pano na tayo kung ang mga may tungkulin bantayan ang mamamayan ay sira na ang pagkatao at wala ng konsensya? tandaan niyo na may psychological exam ang mga yan bago ma-recruit para siguraduhin na intact ang pagkatao dahil mahirap pahawakan ng armas ang taong wala na sa huwisyo. mas lalong nakakatakot dahil sa ganung pagkakataon wala ka na mahihingan ng saklolo, baka mahawa pa kapulisan at mga sundalo kay duterte na pala mura, mababa tingin sa mga babae at halang ang bituka.

      Alam natin ang nagagawa ng karahasan sa giyera na pati mga sundalo ay nagkakapsychological problems at sa madaming pagkakataon nauuwi sa depression, pagpapakamatay o kaya pagpatay niya ng kapwa niya kawal sa barracks. e kung dito wawasakin natin pagkatao ng mga sundalo at pulis dahil sila ay uutusan patayin mga kriminal ng walang pakundangan, kayo na mag-isip. Wag sana tayo maging utak ISIS!

    4. Ang taong kayang pumatay ng walang pakundangan wala nang konsensiya yun. It means all other lesser crimes panis na sa kanya gawin. Ang pinakamahirap na kasalanan magagawa ng tao ay pumatay ka ng kapwa mo, kaya nga sa mga mamamatay tao lang binabansag ang katagang “taong halang ang bituka”.

    5. We dont need a president who is a confessed killer. What would that tell the younger generations na ayos lang magsalvage nang walang pakundangan? Ganyan din propaganda ng ISIS na ok lang patayin mga kalaban ng Islam, ayun madami naengganyo at sumali, kung patayin mga tao dun parang baboy na kinakatay lang. Huwag naman sana maging ganun mindset natin. Nabansagan pa naman christian nation ang Pinas, ampaw lang pala.

    6. P.I. (Puro Imbento) ka Grace Poe tingnan mo ang Davao very peaceful unlike in Manila na maraming kawatan dahil ang namumuno ay mga kawatan, sinungaling at incompetent (Binay, Grace Poe and Mar Roxas respectively). Meron bang martial law sa Davao? wala bang freedom doon? puro ka salita wala ka ngang napatunayan sa bansa at wala kang tunay na liderato at yan ang itatak mo sa makitid mong pag-iisip. Sawa na ang tao sa mga sistema ngayon dapat nang kalusin ang salop Grace Poe kaya utang na loob tama na ang mga patutsada mo kay Duterte dahil hindi kayo magkalevel.

    7. We know DUTERTE because he is a FILIPINO and, he serve as MAYOR, and swept Davao clean from the drug menace ,, criminality and disciplined citizenry …..we do not know GRACE POE … can she qualify to say : I AM A FILIPINO, I LOVE THE PHILIPPINES, IT IS THE LAND OF MY BIRTH AND THE HOME OF MY PEOPLE … certainly NO ….and now she wants to run for president? its worse than a bad joke … its a shameless joke …..

    8. Amazing how these presidentiables take swipes at each other just because it’s the current trend, and then waiting for the next person to make a mistake after their trolls are able to find damaging statements against competition, as if their character remain unsullied and immaculate.
      Media may paint them black or white, clean or gutter, but people will see through the color of humanness and judge according to the person’s totality. Let him who is without sin cast the first stone

    9. Duterte is the only person who can lead the Philippines. We need a president that is not scared to negotiate, be a hostage to free an infant, the aunt and castigate the hostage takers. Still I am for Duterte even with his bad mouth. No other candidate can come close to him in terms of his love to his country even if it will cause his life.

    10. We know duterte right from the start. We want him to change this country for better, not change him. Freedom is for everyone but with the responsibility that it wont deter the freedom of others. And here we have the law. If the law is not implemented well then that freedom is useless. We need to implement the law to safeguard the freedom of others, we need Duterte for our Freedom to survive.

      • anong ko lang sayo sana sagutin mo lang YES or NO tama ba ginawa niya?kung sayo kaya mangyari na may anak ka na ni rape na at pinatay pa at piliut mong ibinabaon sa limot dahil napakasakit tapos may kapit bahay kang kapitan na tumatakbo at sinabi niya ang ganitong biro noong nangangampanya siya ano ang mararamdaman mo? matutuwa ka ba sagutin mo sana ng yes or no dahil kakalat uli sa lugar ninyo ang balitang ito na ang anak mo ay ginahasa at pinatay pala .Sa totoo lang di naman lahat makakaalam sana nito pero dahil sa di wastong pag gamit ng dila na di narerendahan the damage is already done.PLEASE sagutin mo po sana tanong ko pls lang po I need your answer yes or no lang po PEACE TO ALL

    11. What rising anger are you talking about? It is you the opponents of duterte who is magnifying everything to benefit you. The public feels the same way as it did before and many who were slighted are forgiving, EXCEPT YOU THE DUMB OPPOSITION. I would rather put all my eggs on duterte for a clean government than risk my vote with poe or binay or roxas who don’t know anything about dealing with critical issues of the government. Look at poe, did she do something as a senator? Is there one she can boast of except put her name on one the bills sponsored by someone else as a rule to make it pass. She never initiated any and her mouth is talking about the poor and education. Holy shit, talk is very cheap and talking she does. Binay is on the verge of a suicide knowing that he will not win and Mar’s comic strip didn’t help him. He should have entitle it supermars maybe it would have worked. Lahat kasi ng kandidato they make a mountain of every little thing that duterte does. of course it was not a funny joke, but it was never spoken to offend someone. Remember he offered himself to release the prisoners. He did what NOBODY HAS DONE to save those people. He was in the line of fire when the shooting began. who would do it, POE? Binay? roxas? eh kung puro kayo salita at atake ng atake walang maipagmalaking accomplishment,. you better pack up your stuff poe and go back to the US. You have to place in our country, you who doesn’t know how it is to be poor, you who is a socialite and craves for more crowns on your head, why do you want to be president when you know you don’t know anything and you are not qualified? Because you are blinded by the money and the power that was promised you, right? don’t blame it on duterte if you lose. Poero kayo dada!

      • The root of all discontentment and high criminality is POVERTY. If ever there are real pro-poor programs that were implemented that would be in the local government of Makati has demonstrated. Binay has provided world class facilities for the poor in Makati High School, free medicines and hospitalization, free burial etc. These have provided the less disadvantaged in the society (and the poor thru no fault of their own) some peace of mind and general well-being of its local residents. Therefore, resorting to such crimes that we see happening much around is reduced significantly. Why would they ruin their lives (committing crimes) when they live contentedly. Furthermore, if the government will give them all the support needed to upskill their talents that they may have (whether they know it or not) that will lead them to productivity and employment. Ergo, everyone will feel happy, secure and confident in their future. Let’s give hope to the genuine poor in uplifting their quality of life. On the scale of spending and a mountain of allegations raised against the Binays, why didn’t anyone bold enough to raise their valid grievances right up to the Supreme Court? It would have been quicker to resolve the persistent and nagging controversy of corruption! Binay has consistently said to see anyone in Court to deliberate and come up with finality in the decision. He would surely present all the convincing evidences to SC and if he is found to have truly committed such thievery of the people’s money, so be it and let’s put him to jail. Am now a citizen of another country but what amazes me is why is Jojo Binay continues to fight and campaign for the top job! I reckon he has genuine desire to uplift the poor under his decisive leadership. That is his main and top agenda for the country. To top it all, once elected he would act immediately FOI or Freedom of Information to battle corruption all over the country. There will be Press Freedom and this will ultimately make or break the country Philippines. To summarize it all, let’s put into action 2 things – help uplift the lives of the genuine poor and Press Freedom. Cast your vote wisely and don’t waste it! It will define you as a true and dignified Filipino citizen….Good Luck on May 9!

      • anong ko lang sayo sana sagutin mo lang YES or NO tama ba ginawa niya?kung sayo kaya mangyari na may anak ka na ni rape na at pinatay pa at piliut mong ibinabaon sa limot dahil napakasakit tapos may kapit bahay kang kapitan na tumatakbo at sinabi niya ang ganitong biro noong nangangampanya siya ano ang mararamdaman mo? matutuwa ka ba sagutin mo sana ng yes or no dahil kakalat uli sa lugar ninyo ang balitang ito na ang anak mo ay ginahasa at pinatay pala .Sa totoo lang di naman lahat makakaalam sana nito pero dahil sa di wastong pag gamit ng dila na di narerendahan the damage is already done.PLEASE sagutin mo po sana tanong ko pls lang po I need your answer yes or no lang po PEACE TO ALL sa mga sinabi po ninyo na kandidato wala akong napipili salamat po

    12. totoo ito, kung sakaling si Digong ang magiging presidente hidni magiging mapayapa ang bansa dahil ang solusyon niya sa mga krimen sa bansa ay isang krimen lang din na mas makakapag palala sa kondisyon ng bansa natin, maging matalino tayo sa ating pagboto.

    13. Hindi threat si Duterte sa freedom ng mga sumusunod sa Batas. Laking takot ng mga tarandato ngayon at Oras manalo si Duterte bilang pangulo ng bansa natin e Hindi na Nila magagawa Ang kawalanghiyan Nila lalong lalo na yung mga magma skate sa Govierno. Yung mga me masamang balak sa lipunan Ang takot Kay Duterte. Sa ngayon kailangan natin na kamay na bakal para ayusin Ang bansa natin at grabe na Ang droga at ibalik na Ang Death Penalty. Sabi nga ng former PM Mahatir ng Malaysia “Too much Democracy is Dangerous”. Yan Ang nangyari ngayon at mga criminal ok Lang sa Human Rights! Lahat ng mga bansa Sa Asia Meron Death Penalty sa Droga at tayo Lang Ang wala! Ibalik yan Death Penalty! Duterte for President! Marcos for VP!

    14. While Duterte may be a threat to the Republic, Poe has already threaten the freedom of the Filipino people. She may be able to win the elections, but the legal questions and problems on her citizenship will haunt her and will cause unending legal dilemma which may cause a Constitutional crisis. Members of the SC may have assented to her candidacy, but the SC and the Constitution are paramount to the justices.

      May God save the Republic of the Philippines!

    15. Rodan Guerrero on

      Grace poe PWE should shut-up her mouth. She is in a different way also a threat to freedom by PROFESSIONALIZING LIES in the truth about her citizenship and residency issues. Very soon her secrets will be revealed on how she was allowed by the ROUGE SUPREME COURT JUSTICES. Her FUNDERS will unmask her after the elections since after May 9, she will realize the aftermath of her FOOLISH DREAMS and AMBITIONS!
