Just my opinion

They should publicly tear up their US visas. And while they are at it, they should tell their children they can’t study in the US. Study in China, by Gaaaaad.
For all the Filipino-Americans with dual citizenship who voted Duterte into office, drop your US citizenships. Duterte has kept insulting your new-found leaders. What are you doing about it?
As for me, I have NEVER had any problems with US visas because I have NEVER in my life applied for one.
In Marcos Martial Law: Never Again book is a chapter on the atrocities committed by our three former colonial masters – the Spaniards, the Americans and the Japanese. Some of the torture methods they used were repeated by the Marcos dictatorship.
So I wonder, when President Duterte goes to Tokyo next week, will he also rake up the atrocities committed by the Japanese during the Second World War?
The Tokyo government has remained silent about his drug war.
I believe it is very important to not forget that the colonizers abused the inhabitants of our islands.
Just as it is important to remember that Ferdinand Marcos was the first Philippine president to systematically abuse his own people. And his children have never ever acknowledged that their father resorted to such massive human rights abuses in order to keep himself in power.
Which is why I found it profoundly disturbing that Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos and Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos not only accompanied President Duterte on his state visit to China. Duterte even publicly acknowledged Bongbong as possibly the new vice-president should he win his election protest case against Leni Robredo.
Which tends to imply that Duterte believes Robredo cheated Marcos, whose family has a history of massive cheating not only in the 1986 elections but in elections held before and during Martial Law.
Going back to my challenge to Duterte supporters, it is really high time you put your money where your mouths are. In short, you too should boycott the US which Duterte said has never really helped the Philippines.
