An online hate group that refer to themselves as “DDS Bardagulan” (literally-translated: “Duterte Die-Hard Supporter Giants”) are on a rampage posting private information of Netizens who they deem are “satanic” supporters of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. Lately they’ve been targetting prominent lawyer Fedinand Topacio, posting photos of his wife on Twitter and encouraging their followers to harass him and his family.
The derogatory names with which they refer to Topacio also seem to suggest that they accuse him of being a pedophile. This is arguably a case of libel and are possible offenses against the Philippines’ Cyber Libel Law. Indeed, whoever are operating this Twitter account have explicitly expressed that they have no qualms about violating data privacy laws vowing to flout all of these and continue posting private information on Twitter.
It is clear seeing the language they use that these characters are rabid and harbour clear intents to harm people including their families. In some of their mission statements, it is easy to glean the malevolence in their intent.
Some otherwise mainstream Netizens who are part of the “disente” Opposition communities also condone their actions such as what chi chi social climber @MrsUnlawyer exhibits in this tweet…
The hypocrisy with which the Yellowtards operate has long been evident. They seem to be more interested in silencing people who disagree with them and less on engaging in open and honest debate. This is why they have lost an entire nation — because they are inconsistent in their “advocacy” and utterly incoherent in the positions they take on most issues.
