They just can’t have enough sex.
That was how Communications Secretary Martin Andanar described the European groups critical of President Rodrigo Duterte and his administration.
Speaking at an event before overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in the United Kingdom, the Malacañang official said:
“Iyong mga maiingay na pala-iyot, iyong mga maiingay, alam mo, ang problema sa kanila, hanggang ingay lang. Wala namang napatunayan. Kung tatanungin mo iyong kanilang mga Prime Minister, Presidente, iyon talagang namamahala sa kanilang bansa, pati sila sumusuporta kay Presidente Duterte.”
(Those who make noise who loves to have sex, those noisy ones, you know, the problem with them is that noise is all they can make. They have proven nothing. If you would ask their Prime Minister, President, those who really run their country, they too support President Duterte.)
Andanar’s remarks were shown in a video posted on YouTube by the Duterte News Stream Live.
“Iyong mga nasa baba na pala-iyot, sila lang ang maingay kasi kulang sila sa iyot. Kung merong mga bata dito, huwag niyo na lang i-interpret iyon,” he added.
(Those who are at the bottom who loves to have sex; they are noisy because they can’t have enough sex. If there are kids here, just do not interpret it.)
“Pala-iyot” is a Bisaya term, which means having sex regularly.
Andanar then berated the European Union (EU) for meddling with the domestic affairs of the country.
“Sobrang ingay nitong EU. Dapat hindi sila nakikialam sa ating politika. Kung merong gulo doon, nakikialam ba tayo sa kanilang politika? Hindi tayo nakikialam sa kanila kasi nirerespeto natin ang kanilang pamamahala sa kanilng bansa. Ang hinihingi lang natin ay respeto,” he said.
(This EU is too noisy. They should not be meddling with our politics. If there’s trouble in their place, do we meddle with their politics? We do not meddle because we respect their governance in their country. We are only asking for respect.)
Sought for comment on his remarks, Andanar explained: “It was a comment made among many of us, DDS (Duterte Diehard Supporters) people, in jest.”
The EU and some European groups have earned the ire of Mr. Duterte for supposedly interfering in the internal affairs of the Philippines by criticizing his administration’s brutal campaign against illegal drugs. /kga
