I am still giving my trust to President Duterte amid of the breaking issues that surface in his young and colorful leadership, but what disgusts me actually is the over-fanatic supporters who are already becoming biased, unreasonable and out of place – the so-called Dutertards. With no offense, I won’t like to be called one because being one is describes usually as an over-enthused person who obsess over a fandom and act annoyingly about that. We have this situation: most of these, let’s say fantards, are motivated by blind loyalty, really rude to people who go against their precious fandom and do not practice literary or any type of tolerance (cto). Nothing is wrong to become loyalist but when you are becoming unfair, one-sided, and difficult to handle, that what make it wrong. Supporters, like any human being should be fair and diplomatic because that what humanity is. But there are people who cannot balance emotion and logic wherein comes the prejudice, partisan and blind supporters. This bunch of devoted supporters are turning into violent verbally and in writing, and known to be really have horrible communication, irrational behavior, no sense of argumentation, short temper and psychotic reaction. They did nothing but to spread propaganda and positive thoughts promoting their interests, intimidate-attack-destroy their oppositions, defend-explain-rescue the President and their group like a blind worship, and the height of it is correcting the wrongs.
Our parents and teachers taught us that it is bad to curse and foul-mouthed but fantards changed them saying nothing is wrong when you are expressing yourself. We always believe in the importance of life but when thousands of suspected drug users and pushers were killed in the bloody anti-drugs campaign, they decided that killing those lives is a must. They do not see anymore which is right and wrong when they insisted the public showing of an alleged private and personal sex video of an opponent but because the president wants it show then it would be fine. For the longest time we fight the communist and the leftish Islamic group but fantards are mouth shut to free the hundreds of political prisoners as the President green lighted it. We know very well that we need America for strengthening our military, territorial security and economic assistance but since Duterte is anti-American so the fantards maligned against US, googling negative propaganda about USA and justifying the insignificance of USA. We knew that China disrespected and harassed us many times but because the President is eyeing China as an ally, the fantards then turned 180 degrees, swing mood and started to tell-all good stories about China.
There is noticeable short temper from fantards that when criticized will react ridiculously. Every issue, they are on the fighting form to defend and win the issues, rescue or explain when the President was misquoted. Known for staging character assassination, whoever spoke against them, expect to hit back their retaliation because they will really, really try it so hard to find the weaknesses and flaws of that person. Even the old past and regretted mistake will dig out just to make appear the person spoke against will put in bad lights until fall. Senator De Lima, the biggest and staunchest obvious critic of the President was slammed to the full. When expressed his concerned about the extra judicial killings in the Philippines, US President Barak Obama and EU were criticized. Even the United Nations and international CHR were attacked when they reacted on human rights violations. When the President said international aid is not need, the supporters agreed justified that we must not depend on aides. Former President FVR spoke unsolicited advice and was beleaguered. Celebrity Agot Isidro stood up for herself and was lambasted. Name it and you’ll know it.
Sad, it is implicating those good supporters by these ridiculous supporters. I think the problem with these people, they like to criticize but when they were criticized they react violently. For them criticism is negative, that there is only one kind of criticism which is destructive – no constructive criticism. For them, there are only two opponents. If you opposed or if they cannot convince you, you will either be called yellowtards or drug addict. This is obviously fanaticism. They are blind worshiping and trolling who are attracted to fake news sites, no credible sources and love humor and these are exactly the reasons why there were branded Dutertards. Who doesn’t want changes into better anyway? We all want it but if you see wrong you should not tolerate just because it is for the changes and this is what these fantards unable to understand and accept.
