New York TV show host slams Gascon for sneaking Callamard: ‘You fool are a devil’s advocate!’

Through his Facebook account, a netizen slammed Commission on Human Rights Chairperson Chito Gascon for serving as a ‘devil’s advocate’ in the recent visit of United Nations rapporteur Agnes Callamard, and said that Gascon does not have the capacity to fool the nation.

Joel Inocencio, a TV show host of I am Pinoy, Proud Ako based in Northeast America said that Gascon sneaked Callamard into the country so he could support for his narrative on the situation of the Philippines in the aspect of human rights violations.

The UN official was seen at an event by the CHR last week and the Palace expressed its diismay at how she was not able to state her visit, and instead took the government by surprise.

Gascon defended her, by saying that her visit was “academic”.

“She is here not in her official function as special rapporteur on extrajudicial killings to conduct a visit,” he explained. “She’s here under a separate program of the United Nations for what is referred to as an academic visit.”
Gascon has been voicing out against the extrajudicial killings in the country that he pipointed at the war on drugs against President Rodrigo Duterte.

Callamard on the other hand, has been critical about the matter of the killings in the country too, having expressed her intention to conduct an investigation on it, one that Duterte apporoved given that some conditions are satistified, according to a palce statement on September of last year.

Inocencio claimed that Gascon was trying to manipulate the country with his excuse.

“You think you can fool the Filipinos! You have been invited by the PNP to look into their data of the killing statistics, instead you chose the shitty data full of overblown numbers without supporting evidence from mainstream media. Your annual budget was even increase by President Duterte from 400 to 700 million pesos annually in order to support your suppose job of protecting the human rights.”

He said that despite Gascon’s efforts to demonize Duterte, Filipinos do not buy his story of how the country has “entered a period of darkness, the sun is gone, night has fallen.”

Inocencio said the country does not agree with Gascon, who uses his own selective observation to justify narratives.

“The Philippines is rising back from it’s slumber and years of decay. The Tiger of Asia has awakened. The people are enlightened and no longer buying propaganda to advance your agenda. Change is here and more than 90% appreciates the historic progress,” the netizen said.

This is affirmed, he said, by 90 percent of the masses, economists, ASEAN leaders and the Presidents of Russia, China and the United States.

“So who would like us to believe? You and your clowns or the credible leaders whose desire is to see the Philippines get back into good shape?” Inocencio said.
