Karen Lema & Manuel Mogato: Alleged Culprit on Duterte's Hitler Comment


Duterte supporters nationwide discovered the alleged real culprit behind the fuss over Pres. Rody Duterte's Hitler comments. According to some netizens, the alleged real culprits behind the fuss are Karen Lema and Manuel Mogato, two Filipino reporters of Reuters.


Reuters reporters Karen Lema and Manuel Mogato wrote the article titled "Philippines' Duterte Likens Himself to Hitler, Wants to Kill Millions of Drug Addicts."

Some netizens noted that there's no way they could have misunderstood what Pres. Duterte really meant in his speech because they were Filipinos.

After watching the controversial video, most netizens agreed that Duterte stated the following: "Hitler massacred 3 million Jews. There are 3 million drug addicts. I'd be happy to slaughter them. At least, IF Germany had Hitler, the Philippines would Have ..... my victims, all criminals, to finish a problem of my country, and save the next generation."

Pres. Rody Duterte was CONTRASTING himself from Hitler, not LIKENING himself to Hitler. The Philippine President was obviously referring to past incidents where various people (including former Pres. Aquino) compared him to Hitler.

Duterte's point was, unlike Hitler, the people getting killed in his drug war are criminals, not innocents but Reuters writer Lema and Mogato deliberately misrepresented what he said by using the headlines "Philippines' Duterte Likens Himself to Hitler."

Due to the popularity of Reuters as an international news agency, the foreign press picked up their story and won't tell the difference between their headline and what Duterte actually said.
