“Nirape nilang lahat ng mga babae so ‘yung unang asolte, kasi nagretreat sila, naiwan yung ginawa nilang cover, ang isa doon yung lay minister na Australyana. Tsk, problema na ito…Pag labas, edi binalot. Tinignan ko yung mukha, tang ina parang si… parang artista sa Amerika na maganda,” Duterte said.
(All the women there were raped in the first assault and they retreated but the bodies the attackers used remained there, one of which was the body of an Australian lay minister. Tsk, this is a problem… The body was brought outside and it was covered. I looked at her face, son of a bitch she looked like a beautiful actress in the United States.)
“Putang ina, sayang ito. Ang nagpasok sa isip ko, nirape nila, pinagpilahan nila doon. Nagalit ako kasi nirape? Oo, isa rin ‘yun . Pero napakaganda, dapat ang mayor muna ang mauna. Sayang,” he added.
(Son of a bitch, what a waste. I was thinking that they raped her and lined up. I was angry because she was raped, that’s one thing. But she was so beautiful, the mayor should have been first, what a waste.)

Freedom of expression is universal.
There is a debate over the heckling of Bongbong Marcos during the VP debate last Sunday.
The hecklers argue along the lines of freedom of expression. I think they completely lost sight of what freedom of expression really means.
All the VP candidates were invited to speak. They had the floor, not the audience. The audience had no right to deprive any of the candidates their freedom of expression.
By shouting down Bongbong Marcos they deprived him of his right to speak. Not only that, they also deprived the audience of their right to hear what he had to say.
Let everyone speak, allow everyone to hear what each candidate has to say. That way the audience can make up its own mind. That’s why freedom of expression is valuable.
Besides when you shout someone down, it looks like you are afraid to let him be heard.
Heckle, boo, hoot and holler if you are so inclined but do it AFTER he says his piece, do it as a reaction to what you heard.
Don’t shout down anybody and then use freedom of expression as your cover because you are not the only one who is entitled to the right to express yourself.
Freedom of expression is universal, it extends even to those you don’t like.
