Davao Vlogger to Pres. Duterte’s critics: “You will never understand how that man changed our lives in Davao City”

Viral ngæyon sa social media ang isang post ng kilalang vlogger sa lungsod ng Davao na kung saan may mensahe ito para sa mga bumabatikos kay Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte.

Sa kanyang facebook post, sinabi nito na wala umanong problema kung bumatikos sa gobyerno, pero hinihikayat nito na sana ay huwag maging bastos at bigyan parin ng respeto ang pamahalaan lalo na ang Pangulo ng bansa.

Nakakadismaya umano ang ibang kritiko ng Pangulo dahil sa kawalang respeto nila sa Pangulo ng bansa.

Ipinaliwanag rin nito na ang pagsusuporta nila kay Pangulong Duterte ay hindi matatawag na ‘idolatry’ kung di isang ama ng tahanan na nagmamahal sa kanyang mga anak.

“I still have friends who are self-proclaimed dilawans. By friends, I meant in real life. I never unfollowed them because I respect their views.”

“Criticizing is fine. Totally fine. It’s our right. We all have the right to demand good governance. However, if you trashtalk the man I always look up to, it hurts.” dagdag pa nito.

I still have friends who are self-proclaimed dilawans. By friends, I meant in real life. I never unfollowed them because I respect their views.

Criticizing is fine. Totally fine. It’s our right. We all have the right to demand good governance.

However, if you trashtalk the man I always look up to, it hurts.

It hurts knowing that most of you would wait for his speeches only to make fun of him.

It hurts because the man you make fun of is the man I grew up to as a father figure. You will never understand that. Waking up every Sunday with his typical disciplinarian way of talking — you will never understand that.

You will never feel how I felt when I finally faced the man and stared at me and said, “unsa manang naa sa imong dalunggan” (what’s with your ears), pertaining to my ear tunnels. The same reaction when my biological father saw my tattoo. You will never understand that.

Do not call it idolatry.

Because you will never understand how that man changed our lives in Davao City.

If you think Dabawenyos are idolizing him, you’re wrong. We’re like a family here. It is love that he’d shown that made us love him back. It is also called respect. Big respect.

So please, when you call us dutertards by respecting that man, do not mistake it as idolatry.

Furthermore, be respectful when criticizing because it is painful when I see your posts degrading the man I respect. It hurts and that’s why most of us fight back. I’m sorry if we do.

But I hope this time you understand.

You never heard from me personally trashtalking your yellow leaders.

I hope you could do the same.

You see a clown, we see a hard-working erpat.

Big love,

A son of Davao City

Matatandaan na binatikos ng mga oposisyon ang Pangulo dahil sa kanyang naging televised address nitong nagdaang araw, lalo na sa kanyang pagbabanta umano sa mga leftist group na manggugulo kahit na naka lockdown ang Metro Manila.

“Huwag ninyo akong takutin ng gulo-gulo kasi kung gusto talaga ninyo ng gulo, guguluhin natin ang bayan natin tutal wala pa namang pagkain. Kung gusto ninyo nung barilan, eh ‘di sige. Gusto ninyo ng pukpukan, sige. I will not hesitate… My orders are sa pulis pati military, pati mga barangæy na pagka ginulo at nagkaroon ng okasyon na lumaban at ang buhay ninyo ay nalagæy sa alanganin, sh00t them dead.” pahayag ni Pangulong Duterte laban sa mga leftists matapos magsagawa ng rally.

“Naintindihan ninyo? Patay. Eh kaysa mag-gulo kayo diyan, eh ‘di ilibing ko na kayo. Ah ‘yung libing, akin ‘yan. Huwag ninyo subukan ang gobyerno kasi itong gobyerno na ito hindi inutil,” dagdag pa nito.
