President Duterte has launched another expletive-laced tirade against human rights groups, accusing them of trying to destroy the government by taking the side of drug offenders.

The President said human rights advocates or the “bleeding hearts of society” have made “noise” about the deaths of suspects in the government’s drug war but have been silent about the suffering of their victims.

“Kayong human rights, mga p***** i** ninyo. May mamatay kayo diyan, isang durugista. Sigaw na kayo nang sigaw kung saan. Hindi niyo alam kung ilan na ang Pilipino na nasira [You human rights groups, you sons of a b*tches. Someone gets killed, a drug offender, and you make noise. But you don’t know how many lives of Filipinos have been destroyed],” Duterte said during his visit to Masbate last Wednesday.

“Ang mga human rights wala akong narinig ni isa. That’s the problem. Ang human rights ninyo is ‘yung kalaban ang gobyerno. Gusto ninyo sirain talaga ang gobyerno [I have not heard anything from the human rights groups. That’s the problem. Your ‘human rights’ is the enemy of the government. You really want to destroy the government],” he said.

He reminded the human rights groups to show concern for the killing of innocent persons by drug offenders and other criminals.

“Isali ninyo ‘yung mga inosenteng pinatay ng mga kriminal, mas marami ‘yan [You should include the innocent people killed by criminals. That’s more],” he said.

“P***** i**, you make so many noise about one son of a b*****. To me he’s just a carcass,” he added.

Human rights advocates here and abroad have criticized the government for the rising death toll in the brutal war on drugs. Police records earlier estimated more than 4,000 people were killed since the anti-drug campaign started in 2016 but human rights groups claimed that the death toll was higher.

In his speech in Masbate, the President has renewed his resolve to sustain the campaign against illegal drugs, saying he would not apologize for such crackdown. He noted that many Filipinos have become “slaves” of illegal drugs and turned “inutile.”

“P***** i** sinabi ko na sa inyo umiwas kayo. I will not ask for any, offer any apology,” he said.

“Do not destroy the city. Huwag mong pakainin ang mga anak namin ng shabu kasi papatayin talaga kita, sigurado ‘yan. Tandaan mo itong gabi na ‘to kung may matumba,” he said.
