Duterte To Makabayan, Bayan, Gabriela : We Are Not Red-Tagging You, We Are Identifying You!


The Duterte administration is pressing on the gas as regards the fight against the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) as it is now focuses on its legal fronts.

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte in his last public address supports the Arned Forces of the Philippines (AFP) when he said that the military organization does not engage in red-tagging leftist lawmakers as it is actually insisting that the military was actually “identifying” them as legal fronts.

In his recorded speech, Duterte said the AFP is “very correct” for identifying groups like Bayan, Makabayan, and Gabriela as “legal fronts” of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army (CPP-NPA).

 “Itong mga legal fronts ng komunista, lahat ‘yan (These legal fronts of the communists. All of them) Makabayan, Bayan…they are all legal fronts, Gabriela. We are not red-tagging you. We are identifying you as members in a grand conspiracy comprising all the legal fronts that you have organized headed by NDF [National Democratic Front of the Philippines] tapos yung (then) New People’s Army at Communist Party of the Philippines,” he said.

Duterte said several former CPP-NPA members have openly attacked and criticized communists for the latter’s sheer brutality in this communal war.

“Communal war ito (This is communal war). There is no longer any ideology. Itong mga komunista, wala na ideology (These communists no longer have ideology),” the President added.

He said the communists simply wanted to overthrow the government so that they could take over.

“Gusto lang nila umagaw ng gobyerno (They just want to grab power),” he said.


The Commander in Chief, accused the legal front members, particularly Bayan Muna Representative Carlos Zarate, of accepting money” and “defend an oligarch” but did not elaborate.

“You are friends with the NPA. You co-conspirators. Komunista ka adre, matagal na. Alam ko. Alam ko kasi alam ko (You’ve been a communist for a long time. I know. I know because I know),” he said.

He also attacked CPP-NPA founder Jose Maria “Joma” Sison, saying his guerrilla-like ideology claimed the lives of many uniformed personnel.

“Anong nakuha mo diyan sa ideology na communism (What do you get from the ideology of communism)?” he said.


Duterte said indigenous communities were the most affected by atrocities committed by the CPP-NPA members.

“Ang kawawa dito itong mga pobre na taga-bukid na madadala ninyo (The ones pitiful here are the poor you convince. I think 75 percent, at least in Mindanao, mga Lumad. Kayong mga Lumad, umuwi kayo sabihin ninyo sa mga tao ninyo na niloloko lang sila ng NPA talaga. Parang namatay ang Lumad. (You lumads, go home and tell your people you’re being fooled by NPA. Lumads are being killed). So if this thing goes on, the lumads, yung native na Pilipino talaga (native Filipinos) will become an extinct tribe kung hindi kayo huminto diyan (if you don’t stop),” he said.
