“Duterte did not create corruption. It is our political system that was responsible for it.

Duterte did not promote the spread of illegal drugs. It was the previous administration which promoted it.

Duterte is not responsible for the loss of Mischief Reef and Scarborough Shoal. Mischief was lost during the time of FVR and Scarborough during the time of Noynoy. Now some are advocating a war with China to recover them.

Duterte is not responsible for the insurgency. The communist insurgency grew during the time of Cory.

Duterte is not responsible for terrorism. His military took back Marawi from terrorists. The Opposition criticized him for imposing martial law in Mindanao.
Duterte cleaned up his own backyard in Davao. Now his critics are blaming him for wanting to do the same throughout the nation.

Duterte did not destabilize any duly-elected president. Now the Opposition wants to oust him as the duly-elected president.

We are tired of this nonsense. The only way to end it as I had said before is by a revolutionary government.”

Here are some reactions from the netizens:
