Netizen Describe Duterte as Lion Going Up Against Critics Who Are Hyenas

3 mins read

A concerned netizen’s brilliant analogy comparing Pres. Rody Duterte and his critics who are senators like Drilon, Lacson and Gordon went viral on social media. 

The concerned netizen was identified as Jun Abines, a prominent author and political analyst who describe Pres. Duterte as a lion while his critics such as Sen. Drilon, Lacson and Gordon were compared to a hyena. 




Abines described the critics of the President, Dick, Ping and Drilon in one paragraph but one common attribute that stood out like a sore thumb-they work less and talk more. 

The concerned netizen stated that the critics of the President are loud and annoying. They attack ang gang-up only to scare and intimidate their enemies. 

In reality when real challenge arise, they all run with their tails between their legs so they can live and bark another day. Abines said Sen. Drilon, Sen. Gordon and Sen. Ping are akin to hyenas because they don’t kill their prey but rely on the labor of others. 




The resumes of these critics of the President are only good in papers, but in real life, they are devoid of tangible accomplishments. Abines even doubt if one of them have built a single decent bridge in their decades of public service. 

Meanwhile, in terms of Pres. Rody Duterte’s achievement, Abines compared the President to a lion because he is a total opposite of the likes of the above-mentioned senators. Pres. Duterte does not back down from a fight just like a lion who became the king of the jungle. 

Pres. Duterte works hard and sinks his teeth to the neck of his prey. Anyone who dares test his resolve will pay the price. When he faces his enemy, he fights like there’s no tomorrow. He doesn’t care how big, how dangerous or how poisonous kind of animal he is dealing with. 

Abines described Pres. Rody Duterte as the real-life lion. A man of action not words and looks after the welfare of his people. 




Read the Complete Statement of Jun Abines:

HYENAS & LIONS

Dick, Ping and Drilon have one thing in common: They work less and talk more. They are loud and annoying. They attack and gang-up only to scare and intimidate the enemies. But when real challenge arise, they all run with their tails between their legs so the can live and scavenge another day.

They are like Hyenas. They rarely kill their own prey and rely more on the hardwork of others. Their resumes are only good in papers. But in real life, they are devoid of tangible and worthwhile accomplishments. I even doubt if one of them have built a single decent bridge in their decades of public service. 

President Rodrigo Duterte in the other hand is the exact opposite. He works hard and sinks his teeth to the neck of his prey. Anyone who dares test his resolve will pay the price. When he faces his enemy, he fights like there’s no tommorow. He doesn’t care how big, how dangerous or how poisonous kind of animal he is dealing with. 




Tatay Digong is a real-life Lion. He walks the talk. He delivers result. A leader who feels and look after the welfare of his people. The kind of leader the Filipino people have been looking and waiting for a long time. In the last five and half years, he built more public infrastructure than the last five presidents before him, and more.

President Duterte worked hard, worked smart and let his accomplishments speaks for itself.  But as he is about to step down from his throne; Dick, Ping and Drilon engaged him into barking contest trying to undermine his legacy. Now Tatay Digong, like an angry Lion lounged forward with all his might! 

Digong counter-attacked Dick Gordon like there is no tomorrow. He was like a Lion who caught an annoying Hyena on its neck and about to break it anytime with his sharp fangs and mighty jaw. While Ping and Drilon all ran for their lives leaving Dick on own.

Now Dick is waiving the white flag! “Huwag po tayo mag-away” the Pinguin err, the Senator from Olongapo pleaded. Will the Lion break his neck? Or will he let go of the annoying dog that disturbed his peace?




Tatay Digong may be old and tired. But he is a real Lion in every inch, ready to kill and die anyday. Fearless, determined and dangerous. He has shown the world that Filipinos are world class leaders. That Philippines can be a great nation if we elect leaders with brains, balls and political will.

Sadly, most of our leaders in the last 30 years since Cory Aquino were gutless and annoying Hyenas. Their main talents are but feasting on government resources for and grand standing. Word of honor,  self-respect and intigrity donoy exist in their vocabularies. Dick, Ping and Drilon are the very example of their kind. 

We need to replace these Hyenas with Lions. Leaders who have the brains and the means to do what is right. Leaders who have the claws and the fangs to run after the enemies. Leaders who have the guts and the balls to lay his when the challenges arises. Leaders who would choose death than loss self-respect, honor and integrity.
