Philippines President Watches As $5.5-Million Of Illegally Smuggled Luxury Cars Are Bulldozed

August 1, 2018

These are a couple videos of a recent monster truck bulldozer rally sponsored by Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte, in which 68 illegally smuggled luxury cars and motorcycles were crushed as part of the president's anti-corruption campaign. That man means business. In this mix were at least one Lamborghini and several Porsches, along with some BMWs, Mercedes, and Jaguars. Thankfully, I didn't see any 1997 Ford Explorers, which is a relief because I would have been pissed if they crushed the perfectly good side-view mirrors and windshield I keep getting pulled over for missing.

Keep going for the videos.

Thanks to v, who agrees they should have hired a monster truck for extra flair.

    I'd bet most are stolen, then illegally smuggled into the country.

    Lost Value is still just waste. So many resources wasted.

    What an imbecile.

  • The_Wretched

    Yep. Waste is waste.

  • This guy also vows to eliminate drug crimes, by killing people. Not a joke. A reported 7,000 people have been killed as a result. I don't use the term criminals because there's no trial, it's more like a witch hunt where you can be killed just for being accused of dealing in drugs or using drugs.

  • POLGAST

    Not true, else there wouldnt be hundreds of thousands in jail for drug posession. Just try not to aim and shoot at a cop here when you get caught, because they are allowed and encouraged to shoot back.

  • Not every cop is going around killing people. They're still doing their jobs, making arrests, and so on. But at the same time, the president has hitmen killing people, and there's a rise in the public taking the law into their own hands, leading to more killing.

    You wouldnt believe how many articles like those came out online, but I guess you just have to actually be here to see.

  • Living there doesn't make you a reliable source. You're just a civilian, you're in no position to know the things the various investigations have found.

  • POLGAST

    And reading articles about another people in another country from across the world generated by million dollar media companies doesnt make you any more informed if you only look at it from one point of view. Living with family here in this country for decades, making a living in its IT industry and keeping a good grasp of our own news, events and politics puts me in a better position to see for myself.

    And guys cmon, lighten up - this is a site for geeking out on stuff, not news and politics! Its my spare time and I'm just looking for cool stuff!

  • The articles are to get viewers to these news sites, but that doesn't mean the investigations aren't credible. And I wouldn't expect the public to hear about this in their daily lives.

  • POLGAST

    You are correct, the articles are there to get viewers to the news sites. Next time you read a mind blowing article about your own town or hometown, should you have the time, I invite you to take a good hard look at the news organizations, the reporters, the people and places involved, compare that with your personal knowledge and ask yourself how credible you think they really are.

    The lengths at which some will protect their demigod in the face of facts is baffling, yet oddly reminiscent.

  • Bling Nye

    Do tell.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Oh, that's right. He just went on the world stage and said he'd pardon anyone who kills a drug dealer or drug user.

  • whacko

    He reads lists of names on TV, and "mysteriously" most of those people end up murdered in unsolveable crimes.

    Coming soon to Trumpusa (TM) (a licensing fee has been paid to Trump Org).

  • Deksam

    Bahahaha!... Yeah ok there apocalyptic boi.

  • Ed

    If I'm the president I'm driving that bulldozer myself!

  • Bling Nye

    Missed opportunity there, now Duterte just looks weak. He should've turned them into Swiss cheese hip-firing a .50 cal machine gun before running them over in the bulldozer, then pissed on them, set them on fire and walked away in slow motion wtihout looking back at the ensuing explosion/fireball.
