from MindaNews: This is the official transcript of President Rodrigo Duterte’s speech, released by the Presidential News Desk of the Presidential Communications Office) Presidential Communications Office Presidential News Desk SPEECH OF PRESIDENT RODRIGO ROA DUTERTE DURING THE LAUNCH OF THE BANGSAMORO TRANSITION COMMISSION (BTC) [Delivered at Pavilion, Waterfront Insular Hotel, Lanang, Davao City | 24 February 2017] Thank you. Kindly sit down. Pag nagka-pirmahan na tayo at mapayapa na ang Mindanao, aakyat ako dito. [laughter and applause] In the mean time, on the side na lang. I really… ‘di masyado ako naka… naka-ano ako, not really coat and tie, but naka- loafer ako kaya lang basa ako sa Samal papunta rito. I was attending to a ribbon- cutting ceremony for a new drug rehab center. Meron akong speech dito. Lahat naman, every function, meron talaga akong ginagawang speech nila, pero dalawang pages lang tapos uwi na tayo. Hindi ko ma — I do not read speeches because it does not reflect what is in the heart. Alam mo when I decided to run, it was because I was a latecomer. Nobody was talking about the problems of Mindanao and what you would [live stream cut] from the — no offense intended – from the candidates, the usual rigmarole of graft and corruption, and infrastructure projects and everything, despite the fact that we are under a threat of war amongst our people. Walang nagsasalita about Mindanao. And every candidate, sinusundan ko sila, nobody really bothered to say that there will be a serious undertaking to solve the problems of Mindanao. So sabi ko, kung ganito, ano ang mangyari kung puro elitista lang, puro oligarchs, sila-sila lang ang namimili ng Presidente at every time, they only protect their own interest. Ang newspaper nila publish their own propaganda. Ang lahat ng mga TV and radio networks ay wala namang ginawa kung ‘di suportahan ‘yung mga kandidatura ng mga taga- Maynila and every other administration, for so long a time, never really thought of doing a serious study and come up with a solution sa Mindanao. And among them, I said, graft and corruption and itong droga, criminality, I said, the centerpiece of my candidacy would be the Mindanao issue. So sinabi ko sa mga Pilipino, alam ninyo, and maybe they listened, because ang platform ko ginagawa ko. When I said there will be no corruption, there will be no corruption. As a matter of fact, I fired last night one taga-Davao na… for simply making a remark about — sabi ko he’s out and I told him even a whiff of corruption, talagang tatanggalin kita. Kasi I’m doing my… sa drugs, I am facing so many criticism and even threats of prosecution and— Sabi ko, basta gawain ko ang pinangako ko. If I go down or I go up, that would be my fortunes or my misfortune sa buhay. Pero I will comply with my promise no matter what. [applause] So ito dito ngayon, a large part of my campaign, if you were listening was really about Mindanao and how I explained to the people that Mindanao was already Islam before Magellan arrived here. [applause] And that is what the Filipino, the rest, do not understand. Kaya it took somebody with a Maranao descent but a Christian to explain to them na ganito ang nangyari sa Mindanao, that before it was the rising of anationalistic fervor and nothing to do about religion, no, hindi—Hindi ‘yan. But it had to do something about demography and the —‘yun ang sinabi ninyo, colonization of the Philippines. Problema kasi inivade tayo ng other countries, just like in the Middle East, they are now suffering, they are now in agony, as a result of the imperialism of the west. Tayo dito, because it was mishandled and because they insisted dito sa Mindanao, first to get the land and to make the people change religion. And make… it became a… it became something like a bad blood because fiercely there was opposition. Ganon ang nangyari. Whatever happened in the past, as we are talking about it now, was just the nationalism of the Moro people and perhaps indigenous tribes here. [applause] It had nothing with religion. Ito ngayon ang problema ko, because of the imperialistic tragedy that happened in the Middle East. Ngayon ang problema nila is extreme terrorism, extremist. Now that is why we… I am in a hurry. I am a man in a hurry, because sinasabi ko sa inyo, let us avoid extremism. Huwag natin sundin ‘yung mga Arabo kasi tayo Malay. The Malay has always a forgiving heart. Nandiyan pa ‘yung ating relihiyon which says do something good and that is true for all religions. Ngayon kung papasok sila dito, as they are now attempting to try to inject the IS. Mahirap ‘yan. That is why also we must avoid extremism or even entertaining or accommodating them because it will destroy all of us. This will be a country torn apart. Kasi ito sila, walang patawad. And even in the Middle East, because they’re driven by insanity, they kill just people for nothing, or there is no reason at all. Burning women because they do not want to have sex with them; throwing the child into a burning… parang bakery oven; and just simply killing people. Now if we allow or we allow them to come in here and convert even some, there will be a bloodbath, sigurado ‘yan because of the mix ng atin dito. Now I am trying to fast-track everything. I promised the Moro people of Mindanao that you will have it during my time. [applause] At ni- warningan ko at makikinig naman sila, kasi nanalo ako eh. Sabi ko, pag hindi ninyo sinunod ‘yung payo ko, taga-Mindanao, and after good faith I’m telling you, dahil kun
