A government crushing things (dreams, liberties, hopes, lives) is not anything out of the ordinary, so President Duterte deciding to crush $5.5 Million worth of luxury cars and motorcycles should not be viewed as a radical outlier.
Instead Duterte destroying said cars should be seen just as more of the same government genius the populace has come to expect from their ultimate Mayor.
Corrupt Crushing Corruption
In the name of corruption, or in Duterte’s words, “Anti-corruption,” the beauties bulldozered this week included a few Mustangs, Porsche 911s, and a Lambo.
Before the crushing began, Duterte, kitted out with a hardhat and safety goggles, explained to the crowd that, “I did this, because you have to show to the world that you have a viable place of investment and business.”
Brilliant! Nothing says viable place of investment and business like a strongman.
