My God, what’s that smell?!?
With the International Criminal Court finally taking a hard look at The Thug’s infamous murder campaign, he seems to be panicking and has vowed to take his marbles and go home by withdrawing the Philippines from the Rome Statute jurisdiction it had previously agreed to.
And he’s shamelessly attempted to assume the posture of victim in explaining his actions. Those mean foreigners don’t understand us and they’re picking on me, he whines.
“It is apparent that the ICC is being utilized as a political tool against the Philippines,” Duterte said with a straight face.
The thousands of dead bodies have nothing to do with it, nor does his penchant for running his mouth and constantly implicating himself, he sniffs.
Notice that he claims the ICC is attacking the Philippines, rather than defending the human rights of the people of the Philippines by investigating a treasonous and murderous administration and its blood-soaked clown leader.
Same old shallow appeals to nationalism, vanity, and identity. Same old play-the-victim card. Same old deceptive bullshit.
His preposterous rationalizations for claiming that the Philippines is not subject to the Rome Statute anyway are just too dip-shit to bother with here. Others have done a great job debunking that silly crap.
And withdrawing from the Rome Statute now obviously won’t absolve him from criminal liability for acts committed while jurisdiction was in force. It just looks makes him look more guilty. Obviously.
It sure will be entertaining to watch pompous self-styled “human rights lawyer” cum murder mouthpiece Harry Roque attempt to tap-dance through this shit pile.
If you still thought that ridiculous fucking stooge had a shred of credibility, honor, or principle, well, now you know better.
He’s a classic example of the kind of shameless balimbing who would have promptly jumped in step with the Nazis if they gave him a pat on the head.
And Toady Tiglao is even worse.
His recent public call for the actual lynching of two advocates of ICC prosecution of The Thug was an incredibly callous abuse of a major media publication, went far beyond his usual hack propaganda, and just might be enough to make him and the Despicable Shitrag’s ownership criminally liable for incitement to violence.
