Essayist Sarah Kendzior accuses Duterte of being a 'mass murderer' of 'his own citizens'

In a tweet posted on the 15th November 2017, popular essayist Sarah Kendzior described Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte as a man who "orders the mass murder of his own citizens".

Kendzior seems to have impressive credentials as laid out in the About section of her website...

I am currently an op-ed columnist for the Globe and Mail, where I focus on US politics. I also am the US correspondent for the Dutch news outlet De Correspondent. Previously I was an op-ed columnist for Al Jazeera English, where I wrote about exploitation, particularly in higher education, the diminishing opportunities of America’s youth, and gentrification. I have also covered internet privacy, political repression, and how the media shape public perception.  My April 2013 article “The wrong kind of Caucasian” is the most popular AJE op-ed of all time.

Is Duterte a "mass murderer"? Perhaps we could expect a proper answer to that simple question from Kendzior after she's has a bit of time to think things through properly.


  1. Ms. Kendzior, where did you get the idea and the facts to say that the Philippine president is a murderer? Are you a parrot or a thinking human?

  2. you should do your research better and talk the 2 party ( government and opposition) you should not rely on articles written by mainstream media . you go to bloggers, influencer and ordinary people who made duterte where he is now? then tell me did you do all of this? if not, you are not reliable person to be interested in and I will not sit down for my favorite copy to ready any article you are writing. and I will criticize your school who passed you of your title right now. be partial, that's true journalism and a write should be..
