President Rodrigo Roa Duterte on Monday televised briefing accused militant organization such as Makabayan bloc and Bayan of being participants in a grand conspiracy led by the Communist Party of the Philippines to oust the government.
Duterte indicated that groups such as the Makabayan bloc in the House of Representatives, Bayan and Gabriela were not being red-tagged but were being named definitively as fronts for the CPP and the National Democratic Front.
Duterte said communists were without any ideology but only wanted to wrest power.
“There is no longer any ideology. Wala ‘tong mga komunista… Gusto lang nila umagaw ng gobyerno. Mga bobo naman and p– ina,” he said.
Duterte in particularly criticized CPP founding chairman and NDF chief political consultant Jose Maria Sison and Bayan Muna Representative Carlos Zarate, a member of the Makabayan block in the House.
