The global liberal movement’s demolition squad called Human Rights Watch (HRW) is cranking up its vilification of President Rody Duterte and his war on drugs due to the growing global recognition of the campaign.
In a report, HRW stated that a “human rights crisis” exists in the Philippines and it has “deepened” last year.
It rehashed its debunked and baseless allegation that “Duterte urged more summary executions of drug suspects but often of people guilty of no more than being poor young men.”
The campaign against Rody and his steadfast commitment to eradicate the drugs menace has become a huge money-making venture for local and foreign liberals through rich fundings from billionaires who wanted control of the global economy and politics.
HRW and other rights groups targeting Rody are getting lucrative financial backing from shrewd American George Soros through $100 million funding to the organization.
Soros warned Sri Lanka against following in the footsteps of Rody in his own anti-drugs campaign.
“Duterte’s violent crackdown on drugs in the Philippines is not a model to follow. Sri Lanka is unfortunately doing just that as it reinstates the death penalty for drug offences,” Soros said in a social media post.
Of course, the billionaire had to twist facts in his favor since the death penalty has yet to be approved in the country.
Soros was born in Budapest, Hungary and graduated from the London School of Economics. In 1956, he moved to the United States where he founded an international investment fund which made him rich.
Soros funds rights groups through the Open Society Fund.
London-based publication Executive Intelligence Review reported ties between Soros and Human Rights Watch were deep and went back a long time.
“Soros has been the number one funder of Human Rights Watch from its inception,” it said.
“Remember that Soros was a teenage Nazi collaborator in Hungary during the Nazi occupation, an experience he places great importance on in his learning how to profit ‘off of tough times,’” Executive Intelligence Review editor Jeff Steinberg said.
Steinberg also warned that Soros remained deeply committed to a concept of what he called “the open society” that encouraged the destabilization of traditional religious and political systems around the world and that his support for human rights groups encouraged them to attack such structures too.
“Soros’ support for drug legalization is part of his twisted notion of ‘open society’ and he uses his vast network of NGO (non-government organizations) to destabilize regimes that he sees as opposing Western liberal ‘open society,’” Steinberg said.
“For Soros, the open society is the permissive society, in which a kind of hedonistic calculus prevails,” he added.
Soros has known alliances with liberal groups, including American Filipino-American billionaire Loida Nicolas-Lewis who heavily funds Liberal Party operations against Rody.
The demonizing effort is expected to level up after the powerful endorsement from Sri Lanka President Maithripala Sirisena on Rody’s war on drugs, calling it an “example to the world.”
“Excellency, the war against crime and drugs carried out by you is an example to the whole world and personally to me. Drug menace is rampant in my country and I feel that we should follow your footsteps to control this hazard,” Sirisena told Duterte.
Sri Lanka is among the growing adherents of Rody in the methods he employs to beat the narcotics menace. Bangladesh, India’s Punjab state government and Indonesia have acknowledged the effectivity of the war on drugs. Even United States President Donald Trump came out in favor of Rody’s determined efforts.
Recognition of independent policies against drugs apparently is viewed as directly responsible for the greatly weakened hold of liberal forces in most parts of the world.
In turn, it means diminished influence of Western billionaires in shaping the global economy.
The huge financing that HRW and its liberal allies secure is always directed at so-called strongmen whose common character is their refusal to bend to foreign influence.
