Duterte has responded by saying he doesn’t “care” about human rights, and has threatened to declare martial law and leave the U.N. if the world body interferes with his war on drugs.

Because it always works out well in the Philippines

Time for EDSA IV, methinks.

Sadly, his approval rating is through the roof.

IIRC Duerte actually pledged to kill like 100,000 people as President.

Not yet on track to hit that number.

I very much fear he may reach it before his term is concluded in 2022.

It is also of the essence of a democracy that differences and distinctions are recognised and, where relevant, honoured. A democracy should be above all a thoughtful type of society, in these and other respects."

People still find him very popular -- there remains a general antipathy toward drug users that needs to be quashed. I'm also really sad to note that the Philippine left wing, which decried this kind of crap all throughout the Aquino years has been relatively quiet. I honestly think an attempt to oust him might lead to Davao declaring itself independent or something, which would have terrible geopolitical implications.
