Why ousting Duterte will be disastrous for the Philippines

rodrigo_duterte

What’s up with all this talk about ousting sitting Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte? That’s a no-brainer. There are certain people and parties so hungry for power that the campaign to seize Malacanang had not ended in May 2016. So it is hardly surprising that, rather than work with the incumbent Duterte administration, the Opposition seek to destroy it.

I can’t speak for all Get Real Post writers who were critical of former President Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino III, but over the course of his six-year term, there was never a time that I wished Aquino to be deposed extra-constitutionally. I and many of my colleagues may have been the harshest critics of Aquino back then, but I cannot recall any suggestion that the solution to the problems besetting the Philippines under his rule was an ouster.

To end his term prematurely would have given him and his supporters the benefit of the doubt as to whether or not he would have ended his term being regarded a great leader. As it turns out, his failure as a president and the profound, broad-based disillusionment it created amongst Filipinos paved the way for Duterte’s win in 2016 on the back of a protest vote — and ended a 30-year era characterised by the domination of Filipinos’ minds by the Yellow “people power” ideology of the Aquino-Cojuangco clan.

Indeed, what happened to former President Joseph ‘Erap’ Estrada is a case study of how ousted presidents could, enjoying that benefit of the doubt, mount a victorious comeback. Erap, despite having been ousted just three years into his term via a “people power” revolt in 2001, almost won the 2010 presidential election and then went on to become mayor of Manila following a successful bid in the 2013 election.

Today, we are, of course, talking about an Opposition camp famous for their addiction to “people power”-styled “revolutions”. So it is hardly surprising that talk of another one such is in the air this early. In fact, it is interesting that a key figure in the 1986 “revolution”, former President Fidel Ramos, is at the centre of speculation surrounding this possibility.

Credited for “handing” Duterte the presidency, Ramos has suddenly turned into a vocal critic of the Duterte government. Though his motives and timing for criticising Duterte are reportedly “unclear”, many agree that “he may be putting his foot down to salvage ties with Washington frayed by Duterte’s almost daily barrage of expletive-laced insults at Manila’s longtime ally.”

Suffice to say, a move to oust Duterte now will likely seriously backfire. Duterte remains a popular president with a following of fierce social media activists that one self-appointed “thought leader” suggests have “weaponised” the Internet. He is also the first president coming from the Philippines’ deep south in Mindanao, a region which holds a long-standing grudge with the Philippines’ northern tribes seen to be ruling the archipelago from the capital in its northern island of Luzon, now deridingly called “Imperial Manila”.

Politicians who traditionally hold court in Imperial Manila are now widely-seen to be in cahoots with the established order of oligarchs and big business taipans who benefit from the status quo that Duterte is seemingly dismantling. A move to oust Duterte now could foment a fatal divide in an already-polarised society like the Philippines that could be disastrous — even bloody.

The best recourse is to allow democracy to, well, be a democracy. The only thing certain today is that Duterte will either succeed or fail as president after six years. Cutting that term short will result in bets on either outcome left unresolved. It will not result in the same electoral closure that had decisively put up Aquino and his inner camp of Yellow supporters as abject failures and effectively closed a 30-year era of Yellow ascendancy.

Yeah right guys. Filipinos have been reamed by the oligarchy for centuries. There won’t be any revolution unless there’s someone in charge handing out 500 peso notes. “how much you give me sirrrr?”.

Fortunately, Filipino apathy should ensure that the presidency runs its course, although I’m not sure that’s quite the spirit of “democracy”.

You haven’t obviously learned of our history before Americans turned on us and made war. We were at the brink of civil war after fighting against Spain for independence. You don’t know how the situation would have ended up like Vietnam in the 1950s through 1960s.

marius

American didn’t “turn on you”. You kicked them out in the 1960s. I assume you’re taught something different in school?

As other people have mentioned, America has its interests, and as long as those interests are satisfied they’ll leave you alone. What Americans want most, mainly, is profits for American businesses.

And if you haven’t noticed, you already ARE like Vietnam in the 1960s; it’s just Filipinos doing the deforestation with chainsaws instead of Americans dropping Agent Orange.

Wow you are really thick in the head! Even the American filmmaker John Sayles made a film solely about what abuses the Americans did back in 1900 when they betrayed Aguinaldo and decided to go for the kill to control and make bases in our country. We’ve had a revolution trying to attain independence before that as written in our history books and taught to me at school. In the 60s our economy was booming second only to Japan.

Sorry, I thought we were discussing recent history, not something that happened 120 years ago to your great-great-grandparents. You achieved independence. That means, for 120 years, you’ve done nothing except complain about how unfair everything is, instead of building an independent country. The economy was booming in the 1960s because of American money and American expertise flooding into the country. When Marcos kicked the Americans out, everything fell to pieces. I didn’t say you were like Vietnam in the 1960s. I said you are like that now. As I’ve said many times in these comments, I’m no fan of American… Read more »

Because America knew that the Filipinos could not govern themselves. You need common sense and judgement to do that. You can’t lay this at Americas feet. The simple fact that all you want to do is fight and jump headfirst into situations tells the whole story. America would have been good for the Philippines if not for the uprising. America freed you from the oppression of the Spanish, then you turned on America.

Sorry pal. We were not granted our independence back after we had it in 1898 2 years later when the Americans seized our country through buying us from a treaty in Paris between US and Spain. They even abandoned us back in 1942, when Japan invaded us and when Manila fell to their hands. The U.S. forces from Phils fled to Darwin, leaving many natives to fight U.S, and Japan proxy war, and leaving many of ours more dead than fucking Americans. Then in 1944, when it was clear the Axis powers were losing, U.S. came back to our land… Read more »

I think Liberal Party will have a taste of revenge amongst people who supported du30. If they assasinate du30, yellow will die next by peoples revolution.

What happened to Erap in 2001 was just wrong. It should never have happened. Back then, it was very easy to cow Erap supporters by just saying that they were “stupid.” I realize now that those were very shallow reasons for an ouster. It was by Erap’s able statesmanship (he left Malacanang hoping to start a “healing process”. Just read the Angara diaries) that we were able to avoid violence. Looking at it from today’s perspective, there was really nothing worth impeaching Erap over.

You sound like a good moron. Yellow tards have impeached on leaders twice — illegally.

However, the resounding strong support Duterte has unequalled by his predecessors — as he has the strongest supporters in Mindanao and Visayas, and especially Mindanao, than the rest before him — and not even Marcos had that great of support in the south then, so chances of impeaching him by the yellow army (with their church and media) will be met… Read more »

Democracy is most vulnerable when times are hard. People tend to elect tough talking “strong men,” like Hitler, Putin, Hussein, and Duterte, who eventually turn their Democratic Republics into totalitarian dictatorships. These kinds of leaders always find scapegoats for the uneducated masses to fear, hate, and blame for all the county’s problems. Of course these kinds of “strong men” leaders keep the outward forms of democracy as they wage war against insurgents, drugs, crime, or whatever.

What we did to Erap in 2001 was unjust. Back then, it was so easy for his supporters to be cowed into submission and join the bandwagon lest you be ostracized and be called “stupid” or “masa” in a derogatory way. It was a good thing that Erap was a true statesman on the day he left Malacanang in order to start the “restoration of unity” and the “healing process” (I think this was recorded in the Angara diaries).

duterte represents every Filipino. This is where you Filipinos and your blind nationalism just make a mess of simple things. He’s the president of the Philippines not just 16 million people.

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte by his friendly approach to Russia and China had just saved many Filipinos from sure annihilation should another World War erupts, his pledge of neutrality, and humble approach to diplomacy in dealing with Socialist countries and hopefully keeping old allies shall free the country from threat of invasion, just in case. The fear from hunger of some anti-Duterte critics must realize the wisdom of P!Du30 in making this historic decision, no other President had thought and considered. Kudos Mr. President Duterte.

Your math is a bit off. Those 64% are not necessarily against him. For many of those, he would have been their “second choice.” Assuming Duterte is the second choice of all anti-administration votes (i.e. Binay with 12.73% of votes), you’d have at least 51% supporting Duterte.
