Photo of Duterte with Kitty turned into a vicious and distasteful meme by Philippine Opposition Netizens

More evidence is emerging that the rudderless Philippine Opposition are scraping the bottom of the barrel in their efforts to find arguments to "oppose" the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte. The most recent flypaper issue Opposition "activists" are buzzing around is a photo of Duterte hugging his daughter. The photo was shared by Duterte's partner Honeylet AvanceƱa and featured in an ABS-CBN News report.

Not to miss an opportunity to make a superficial splash in the political discourse, Opposition Nerizen "Superficial Gazette" let loose a vicious meme showing various pro-administration personalities' faces photoshopped onto the photo.

The photo is captioned by the following tweet...

By releasing pictures of him hugging his daughter, #PresidentDuterte tries to humanize himself in the eyes of Filipinos. But it can never erase his inhuman destruction of this country. 
Here's a look at what's actually going on. #SuperficialGazette

The assertions in the tweet are grounded upon not much else than the author's blinkered interpretation of what went behind the making of the photo. On top of that, it is also built on the singular astoundingly weak argument the Philippine Opposition has built its entire platform of opposition upon -- that Duterte personally perpetrated the premeditated killing of "thoudands" of innocent Filipinos.

The Philippine Opposition seem to have nothing else to work with. But that fact is lost in Netizens like "Superficial Gazette" who actually think publishing stories like these constitutes true political opposition. They merely contribute to further bankrupting the collective intellect of an entire society.
