Hindi napigilan ng OPM singer na si Noel Cabangon na maglabas ng kanyang saloobin sa mga nasabi ng presidential candidate na si Davao Mayor Rodrigo Duterte sa kanyang political rally tungkol sa kaso ng rape case noong 1989 sa Davao.
Kasalukuyang viral pa rin ang video ni Duterte sa social media kunsaan sa isang political rally ay naikuwento ng mayor na nakita niya noon ang isa sa mga rape victims.
Ang biktima ay isang Australian lay minister na nasabi niyang may hawig sa isang American actress.
Sa video clip na kumalat ay malinaw na nasabi ni Duterte ang ilang salitang labis na ikinadismaya ng ilang grupo ng kababaihan.
Aniya, “Ni-rape nila lahat ng babae.
“So yung, yung unang casualty, kasi nag-death threat sila naiwan yung ginawa nilang cover.
"Ang isa doon, yung lay minister na Australyana.
"Tsk, problema na ito. Ang Australyanang yun kasi sige na ang tawag, e.
"Paglabas, binalot. Tinignan ko yung mukha. T*ng ***, para si, parang artista sa Amerika na maganda."
"P*t*ng ***, sayang,” patawang sabi ni Duterte.
Patuloy niya, “ Ang napasok sa isip ko, ni-rape nila, pinagpilahan nila lahat do'n."
"Nagalit ako kasi ni-rape? Oo. Isa rin 'yun.
“Pero napakaganda. Dapat, ang mayor muna ang mauna. Sayang."
NOEL'S FACEBOOK POST. Kaya naman hindi napigilan ni Cabangon na maglabas ng saloobin sa kanyang Facebook account noong Biyernes, April 15.
Sa pamamagitan ng Facebook status ay sinabi niya kung bakit hindi niya gustong maging pangulo si Duterte.
Narito ang kabuuan ng kanyang post:
“I will never vote for your candidate because he is dangerous and will surely lead our country down a dark path.
“He appeals to many because he is perceived as macho and relentless against crime.
“He has even made it believable that he can eradicate crime and poverty in three to six months and yet cannot give a concrete program to show exactly how he is going to fulfill his promise.
“Sure, Davao has improved.
“But what it is now is an accomplishment that is not his alone.
“And what about his appalling human rights record?
“He goes after petty criminals and small-time syndicates because perhaps he believes that they are the dregs of society and won't be missed.
“A life, however, is a life, even if he or she is considered a disgrace to society.
“If we become judge, jury and executioner and encourage others to be the same way through example, then what kind of country will we have?
“A leader who condones violence will encourage the citizens to embrace violence, too.
“That is why even at this early stage, the followers have resorted to threatening critics with rape and murder just because they don't share the same view.
“Are we supposed to just accept that, and be swayed by your candidate who styles himself as "cool" and "astig" even if he is more style than substance?
“And not to mention his disrespect for women.
“I also can not vote for your candidate as he has already said he would release corrupt officials from jail.
“What message will that send?
“That one can get away with graft and corruption?
“And then he will also drop the Philippines' claim against China over territory that is rightfully ours?
“That is treason!
“And yet you still believe that your candidate will bring us forward.
“On the contrary, he will only take us back and erase all the undeniable gains that were made these past years.”
