PNOY VOWS TO FIGHT ‘DICTATOR’ DUTERTE: “I’m Willing To Die To Save My Father’s Legacy!”

“Hindi ko matatanggap na walang nangyari sa pagkamatay ng tatay ko at iba pa nating mga kababayan, libo-libo po. ‘ailangang ibuhos ko ‘yung magagawa ko. Kung buhay ko ang katapat iyon lang ang tangan sa akin, e dapat hindi ganun kaimportante ‘yung buhay ko dahil hindi ko mailalaban ‘yung ipinaglaban ng tatay ko. Hindi magkakaroon ng kabuluhan,” said Benigno Aquino III.

Aquino cited ‎the Duterte’s 29 April 2016 interview on GMA News which sent memories of the dark days of martial law rushing back in his mind. Aquino recited Duterte’s words as if these seared in his heart.
In that interview, Duterte had declared he would abolish Congress if Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV would carry out his threat to impeach him over his il-gotten wealth if the mayor won as president.

In that interview, Duterte said: “Kapag natalo ka patay ka. Every revolution that succeeds, siya ang tigas. He now becomes the authority…Ako na ang Congress. Ako na ang Presidente.”
“He’s a lawyer but I’m not. But I studied the Constitution and I challenge everyone to look into the Constitution: where is the power of President to abolish Congress? He might abolish the Supreme Court next. But look for it, there is no such right,” said Aquino.
Aquino said Congress and the SC were part of the check and balance system to prevent grave abuse of discretion.

He also cited Duterte’s plan to form a revolutionary government which would be like Martial Law but to be called by another name ‎and his repeated claims: “Walang batas-batas. Ako ang masusunod. Ako ang tama. Ako ang magaling.”

Aquino corrected Duterte who claimed that his mother, the President Cory Aquino, also headed a revolutionary government from 1986 to 1987.
“My mother mother didn’t exercise power all by herself. She immediately came up with the 1987 Constitution which was approved by 90 percent of Filipinos,” said Aquino.

Aquino was worried that Duterte’s brusque behaviour, potty mouth and sheer lack of statesmanship could spell trouble for the country’s international relations.
“Katulad ‘yung kanyang pagsasalita ay naiiba. Okay na kaya iyon? Iyon bang ganung klaseng pagsasalita magdadala ng isang kilong bigas sa kaninumang hapag? Kapag naghanap tayo ng kakampi at binati mo ng pabalagbag, ilan kaya ang kakampi sa atin? E mabigat ‘yung kalaban natin sa South China Sea,” said Aquino.

  1. Well, all of the BS Aquino fears have been found to have no basis. Our economy is growing, internationally, we are more respected, criminality is down. Our country is in good hands.

    The only legacy the BS Aquino's father left was his conviction of treason.
