I approve, as long as male communists get the same treatment!
Alleged comments, the only place I have seen this reported is this website "Coconuts". The private meeting was shown on TV, though there might have been a private part to it for all I know. However the rest of the media did quote parts from the speech and never mentioned this.
The context, the war against the NPA has dramatically intensified. Those who surrender get a nice financial package and about 800 have done so including senior members. This speech was to about 200 of them. The Communist Party have responded by beheading surrenderees, by killing tribal leaders who oppose them and by stating they will kill a soldier a day.
Duterte has labelled the NPA as a terrorist organisation and has said he might ban their fronts. Gabriella is such a front. Gabriella was recently in uproar because their deputy secretary was killed. She was in NPA uniform and carrying an AK47 and a grenade. Gabriella said it was a breach of human rights.
Duterte has the mouth of a guttersnipe and I think choose words to shock so as to make an impression. Only foreigners take him literally. I find his choice of language disgusting but on the whole prefer to focus on his policies - most of which appear to be much better than the two regimes of his predecessors I have good knowledge of.
Do you think he is really going to disembowel ASG fighters and eat their insides alive?
Do you think he has the powers to shut down Boracay?
Everything is said for a reason but often not meant literally.
Still foul-mouthed of course but it is how many Filipinos talk. The domestic audience understand.
It is unfortunate when you have presidents like Trump or Duterte that reach down for the lowest common denominator. A leader is meant to take people to higher places and not drag them down in the gutter.
