LOOK! Trillanes calls Duterte supporters blind, cult: It’s very scary
“Things are moving fast. I just would like to appeal to the people to open their eyes. Let’s not be carried away with idolatry and their blind followership to President Duterte. We should be ready and be vigilant for any excesses of the abuse of authority.”
This was the statement of Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV on Tuesday in an interview with Karen Davila over ABS-CBN News Channel’s “Headstart.” Senator Antonio Trillanes IV appealed to supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte to open their eyes and not be carried away with their “idolatry” for the President.
When Karen Davila asked if Duterte’s followers are blind, Trillanes said: “Yes I believe so. And it’s a cult following much like what Hitler had back in the 30s so it’s very scary.”
Furthermore, the senator likened it to the dreaded German dictator and Nazi Party leader, Adolf Hitler.
“I’m just asking the law enforcement agents to do it properly. You arrest individuals, you don’t kill them because we’re here as public servants to protect and serve the people,” Trillanes added.
