As in most cases when a group identifies others (foreigners, outsiders) as the cause of their problems, the inevitable result has been that it ends up with the group killing each other. If the problem in the Philippines is Mexican and Chinese drug traffickers, they should be the primary victims. Leaving aside how that should happen, it seems to me that people are turning against each other: i.e., in this case, Filipinos are killing Filipinos. This isn't unique, though. It is, in fact, the pattern everywhere, even in the good 'ol USA. The suggestion, of course, is that that is the last thing that should happen. That, imo, is what leaders are for, and what they try to do.
That's exactly how I feel too. I also find it interesting that of the non-filipinos who support Duterte online they usually tend to be people who believe in white supremacy.
But perhaps more telling is that those who are supporting of Duterte, online, will often try to resort to cyber bullying to get their point across when someone debates them. Not sure what that tells us but it's not going to work here.
