Euan McKirdy, writing for CNN;
Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte on Friday likened himself to the Nazi leader, saying he wants to kill millions of drug addicts, just as Hitler killed Jews during the Holocaust.
“Hitler massacred 3 million Jews. Now there is 3 million, what is it, 3 million drug addicts (in the Philippines), there are,” he said in a speech in his hometown of Davao City.
“I’d be happy to slaughter them. At least if Germany had Hitler, the Philippines would have (me). You know my victims, I would like (them) to be all criminals, to finish the problem of my country and save the next generation from perdition.”
There is a big difference between Pres.Duterte and Hitler; Pres.Duterte is trying to get rid of the country of illegal drugs and all its drug pusher/lord, while Hitler was trying to get rid of Jews because of his hatred for the Jews.
The reaction would have been different if Pres. Duterte did not compare himself to Hitler.
