Philippine Government Bans Porn Sites While Committing Crimes Against Humanity

Countries that block porn: Philippines decide What is illegal to view on the internet

The Philippines have received a tremendous amount of international news about Rodrigo Duterte, the island nation’s controversial president. Coverage of current events in the Philippines has revolved around the island nation’s violent drug war, which has claimed as many as 2,300 lives, leading many nations to warn of travel to the Philippines and generating a violent nickname for country’s head of state: Rodrigo Duterte the punisher

Duterte has publicly announced that military-police will be absolved for collateral damage, essentially giving the green light for indiscriminate violence. The president himself has suggested that mayors could face death if they do not cooperate in his heinous program.

Authorities have not only directed their murderous policies against organized crime and drug dealers, but have also lashed out at drug addicts, leading to international condemnation and raising the specter of a crimes against humanity trial.

Meanwhile, as Duterte’s government continues its grotesque actions, the nation has taken an ironically moral stance on pornography.  On January 14, Duterte’s government has utilized an anti-child pornography law to black out adult porn websites, including the internationally popular Porn Hub. The announcement came after Porn Hub released its annual statistics, which showed that Filipino users spent more average time on the site than any other nationality.

These maneuvers are mere distractions, designed in part to cover up for the extreme moral failings of the Philippine government. Not only has Duterte relinquished his authority as an elected leader by officially sanctioning the murder of individuals impacted by a pressing health crisis, but he deserves to be tried at the Hague. Nevermind the international leaders that have voiced support for his government – including nationalists Shinzo Abe, prime minister of Japan, or Donald Trump, the flailing US president-elect  – Duterte is a war criminal. In fact, Trump’s support of Duterte underscores his own lack of legitimacy as a moral leader.

In 2017, such barbarous polices have no place, and banning pornography isn’t going to obfuscate such criminal behavior.
