It’s pretty surreal to see Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella yammering about fairness and due process regarding a pending U.S. investigation of widely reported extrajudicial killings of thousands of Filipinos, otherwise known as state-sanctioned mass murders.
Surreal, because fairness and due process is precisely what is lacking when suspects who have not been convicted of crimes are summarily executed by “security” forces and their henchmen amid goading and cheering by the Thug-in-Chief.
Surreal because Abella is obviously blind to the irony here.
Or maybe he’s just a spineless fucking toady, as well as a shameless bullshit artist.
Coming up next: a bunch of whiny pseudo-nationalist blather about how the U.S. should not meddle in Philippine affairs, even if the “meddling” is borne of concern for Filipino lives that Philippine “leaders” are all too happy to see summarily extinguished while brainwashed fools clap and cheer like blind imbeciles.
