Anniannichan: “Or if he gets criticized for his actions, he should learn to take the heat and not jail those speaking out against him. Freedom of expression goes both ways.”
Gruzondiman: “I checked Mocha’s page. She’s at it again. Ruined my morning – the feeling of tasting crap just to check if it’s really crap. Oh crap.”
Nojo Mojo: “Yes, he has a right to free speech, and we have the right to criticize him. Free speech is not free from consequence.”
Alma: “And disrepecting God by calling him stupid which is the real issue here. We may have different beliefs, opinions and views in life but calling God stupid is a disrespect. Duterte is really sick and insane…”
Wisdom: “Freedom of speech…..lahat pwede sabihin, pero hindi lahat dapat. Even when you speak, it should always be accorded with consideration and RESPECT.”
