So The World May Know: Listen To Duterte's Warnings About A Hitler Clone!

"When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it--always."
 Mahatma Gandhi
"I could not imagine a country obeying 
an insane leader"
Duterte
Dutertards: After about 800 days of your cult leader in office-August Inflation rate highest in 9 years! Escalating consumer prices (check your supermarket bills), U.S.$1=P53.53 (don't be stupid, that's bad!)and PH stock market, one of the worst-performing in the world!
"I could not ever fathom the spectacle of the human being going into a killing spree, murdering old men, women and children. "
Duterte
From The South China Morning Post:
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, who once compared himself to Hitler, paid a solemn visit to Israel’s national Holocaust memorial on Monday, branding the Nazi leader “insane” as he lamented the Nazi genocide of an estimated 6 million Jews.
The comments marked a dramatic turnaround for Duterte, who just two years ago had compared his anti-drug campaign to the Holocaust and said he would be “happy to slaughter” 3 million addicts. He later apologised.
Duterte, known for his profane outbursts and accused of committing widespread human rights abuses, spoke quietly and respectfully during his stop at the Yad Vashem memorial.
"Never Again!"

He said the Holocaust should never be repeated and that “despots” have no place in the modern world.
“I could not imagine a country obeying an insane leader, and I could not ever fathom the spectacle of the human being going into a killing spree, murdering old men, women and children. I hope this will not happen again,” he said.
“There is always a lesson to learn: that despots and leaders who show insanity, they should be disposed of at the first instance,” he said.
JERUSALEM: Israeli President Reuven Rivlin gave a brief lecture on Hitler to Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday after the Philippine leader's 2016 remarks comparing himself to the Nazi dictator who carried out the Holocaust.
"Hitler was actually representing the devil himself," Rivlin said when the two men met at his Jerusalem office. "He was the devil on earth."
Rivlin went on to say that Duterte's visit to Israel's Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial on Monday must have illustrated to him the sensitivity surrounding any reference to Adolf Hitler.
"Probably you have realised yesterday the feelings when you have visited the museum of Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, to really feel the atmosphere, to feel the feelings of all the people that were part of this disaster," said Rivlin, whose position is mainly ceremonial.
Duterte appeared to be listening attentively during Rivlin's brief comments. He later spoke about trade and cooperation with Israel.
The controversial Philippine president spoke of Hitler in 2016 when talking about his violent drug crackdown that has killed thousands.
"Hitler massacred three million Jews. Now there are three million drug addicts (in the Philippines). I'd be happy to slaughter them," Duterte said then.
Duterte  Insults the Jews and wants a Filipino HOLOCAUST!
From GMA News:
Jewish groups have condemned President Rodrigo Duterte's remarks that he is willing to do what Hitler did to the Jews to go after criminals in the country.
In a speech in Davao City after his official visit to Vietnam, Duterte said: "Hitler massacred three million Jews. Now, there are three million drug addicts... I'd be happy to slaughter them." 
"At least if Germany had Hitler, the Philippines would have… You know my victims, I would like to be, all criminals, to finish  the problem of my country and save the next generation from perdition," he added.
Duterte's remarks did not sit well with Jewish groups in the United States.
Rabbi Abraham Cooper, head of the Simon Wiesenthal Center's Digital Terrorism and Hate project, called them "outrageous."
"Duterte owes the victims (of the Holocaust) an apology for his disgusting rhetoric," Cooper said.
The Anti-Defamation League, an international Jewish group based in the United States, said Duterte's comments were "shocking for their tone-deafness."
"The comparison of drug users and dealers to Holocaust victims is inappropriate and deeply offensive," said Todd Gutnick, the group's director of communications. 
"It is baffling why any leader would want to model himself after such a monster," Gutnick said.
Adolph Hitler and Rodrigo Duterte
Identical Twins From Parallel Universes?
Reasons why HE rose to power
He was a great speaker, with the power to make people support him.
The moderate political parties would not work together, although together they had more support than him.
There was widespread poverty and unemployment, which made people angry with the government. People lost confidence in the democratic system and turned towards the extremist political parties .
The death squads attacked his opponents.
The propaganda campaign was very effective and it won support for him. They targeted specific groups of society with different slogans and policies to win their support.
He was given power in a seedy political deal by a political party who foolishly thought they could control him.
Industrialists gave him money and support.
The above description is NOT about Duterte. This is a BBC article on how HITLER rose to power! Isn't it eerily similar to the Duterte story in the Philippines?
