Maybe you are already aware of Baron Geisler’s notorious acts, but by this time, you will see a different version of him. It is all about his reactions to one serious social issue today in the Philippines, the unprecedented killings of illegal drug users or pushers and criminals without due process of law, which many regard as extra-judicial killings (EJK), and most of the victims of which are from poor families.
Geisler, disturbed by the recent news about Duterte’s campaign against the illegal drug trade, said why not just target the big names: “Hindi mo na lang puntiryahin yung mga bigatin na tao, hindi yung kailangan mong i-squeeze yung mga judge para magturuan.” He also said that he is not afraid of him because he is not an addict. He’s also disappointed at Filipino boxer and senator Manny Pacquiao’s statement that gays and lesbians are like animals and that it’s okay to kill people.
He posted a 10-minute video on his facebook account to speak his opinion on the matter. Watch the video below:

“Hi, I’ve been watching the news lately, grabe nakakadisturb, daming patayan, actually matagal na yan eh, ngayon lang nilalantad lahat. Nakakadismaya dahil ang pinupuntirya ay mga maliliit na tao, maraming mga namamatay, maraming mga kasong inuungkat, may mga patay na nga naungkat pa yung mga duming nagawa. Nakita ko sa bagong administrasyon na pinapakita na after a week being inaugurated two weeks, 1st week yung mga mahihirap palit-ulo, kumbaga na nagmamalinis sa mga pulis. Mahal ko yung mga pulis natin. Bato mahal kita pero its unfair parang ipalit ang buhay na kamatayan agad. Nasaan ang human rights, nasaan ang Justice System natin, kung mananakot okay lang, pero bakit ‘di nila puntahan yung puno’t dulo kung saan nangagaling yung mismong droga. Tapos kailangan nila i-squeeze pa ang mga nasa politics, or yung mga judge, yung mga mayor na wala ring magagawa. Siguro Duterte has the only boss, yun lang, meron siyang boss, meron siyang taong gumagalaw para sa kanya pero hindi nya nakikita yung mga repercussions na nangyayari sa bansa natin na parang okay lang pumatay.
And Manny Pacquiao, I idolized you before, you’re a Christian like me but it’s okay na you say that gays and lesbians are animals. Anong pinagkaiba nun sa pagpatay ng ibang tao? Mas masahol pa tayo sa animal kung ‘yun ang gagawin natin. Kaya nagkaroon tayo ng Gobyerno para.. kaya may serbisyo kayong dapat gawin. ‘Di yung padalus-dalos tayo para lang may maibalita sa tao. ‘Di ibig sabihin, para lang kayong mga unggoy din, walang pinagkaiba sa hayop. Sa nakikita ko parang medyo.. ‘di na nalalaman ng mga masses or yung mga tao, slowly slowly nagiging parang silent martial law yung nangyayari. ‘Di naman nangyayari, marami pa namang nakikitang umiinom sa labas, ‘di naman nasusunod yung 10 o’clock na liquor ban, Gun ban kaya puwede?
Alam nyo tanga ako eh, I really can’t utter yung tamang words para sabihin yung mga nararamdaman ko dahil hindi ako writer masyado, hindi ako magaling. Pero yung nararamdaman kong emosyon, sobrang sakit, una noong tumatakbo siya puro sya mura ganyan, tapos ngayon, he is showing that iron fist, binibigay nya yung iron fist sa atin. Oo marami na lang sigurong umookay na dahil natatakot sila, pero I think, yung rights pa rin ng tao yung pinakaimportante dito, hindi yung bullying people na parang hey you and I surrender if not I will kill you. Alam mo ang dami mo paraan dyan sports halimbawa. Parang pakitang gilas na lang talaga itong bagong presidente natin, walang pinagkaiba kay Donald dump(sic) na ewan ko na lang kung anong mangyayari. Tignan natin pero hindi ko talaga mailabas kung anong tamang.. hindi ako writer eh pero andami siguro nakakaintindi sa akin na hindi lang makapagsalita kasi mali eh. Hindi mo na lang puntiryahin yung mga bigatin na tao, hindi yung kailangan mong i-squeeze yung mga judge para magturuan, so ang mangyayari palit-ulo, so mas maraming patayan. Yun ba yung gusto nating pakita sa future generations natin na parang okay, it’s okay to kill, it’s in the Bible na naging extreme na ba ang pinoy ngayon or yung mga tao na namumuno ngayon? Dahil nagmamalinis sila? Andami mong nakitang katabi niya na madudumi rin, bakit hindi yun ang unahin? Yung mga mabibigat, hindi yung mga mahihirap. Tapos kailangan pantay-pantay, gagawing pantay-pantay ang Pilipinas.
Mayor, I’m not afraid of you, I’m not an addict, I rarely drink. Pa-drug test mo na lang lahat pati ikaw magpa-drug test. Lahat hindi lang yung mga pulis, lahat ng nasa tabi mo. Kasi you’re in power now, you can do whatever you want, you can say whatever you want, but it is very unfair to the masses. Although oo, maganda yung nangyayari, let’s just wait and see. But I am very dissapointed especially kay Manny Pacquiao who is a Christian, he says okay lang na p***a, pumatay ng tao, pero ang bakla, lesbian, LGBT, masahol pa sa hayop. Ang killer ‘pag sinabi nila, ang addict will be always an addict, so therefore a killer will always be a killer? That’s my question to you. Walang pinagkaiba po ‘yun, lahat ng mga tao may second chances, na puwedeng ibigay depende na lang po yan sa inyo, but so far I am very disgusted sa nangyayari. Hindi kayo nananakot ng tao, you are using the masses para sa advantage ninyo, wala kayong pinagkaiba sa kanila, addict ka rin, you’re sociopath, ‘yun lang. God bless you, mightily. This is Baron Geisler and I am not afraid of you, not even drunk, only tired, tired of all of these bu***it and non-sense. Me, Baron Geisler signing out, bye.”
Here is a translation of the transcript in English:
“Hi, I’ve been watching the news lately, and I find it exaggeratedly disturbing, all those killings, which have actually been happening long ago but are just being revealed recently. It is disappointing because it targets the small people. A lot gets kills, a lot of closed cases revived, and there are even dead people whose sins are still being dug up. What I see in this new administration, which a week after the Inauguration, two weeks, on the first week, all those poor people’s heads are being exchanged for policemen who are washing their hands. I love our policemen. Bato I love you but it’s unfair to exchange those lives with instant death. Where is human rights? Where is our Justice system? If it’s just to instill fear, it’s ok but why are we not getting to the bottom of where these drugs come from? Why do they need to squeeze even the politicians, or the judges, or mayors who cannot control these things? Maybe (Pres) Duterte has his one boss, that’s it maybe he has a boss or somebody who is doing all these for him but what he fails to see are the repercussions to the country that everybody now thinks it’s ok to kill.
And Manny Pacquiao, I idolized you before, you’re a Christian like me but it’s ok for you to say that gays and lesbians are animals. How does that differ from killing humans? We are worse than animals if that is what we’ll do/ If the purpose of us having a government is…which is why you have a service to perform. You should not be haphazard in your ways just to have some news to deliver to the people. It does not mean that we could be just like monkeys, no different from animals. From what I see, it seems that the masses or the people do not notice, that slowly slowly there is a silent martial happening. It is not actually happening as we still see lots of drinking on the streets, and that the 10 o clock ban is not actually being followed. Would a gun ban be possible?
You know, I’m stupid because I can’t utter the exact words to describe what I am feeling because I and not much of a writer, I am not that good. But the emotions I am feeling, these are so painful. When he ran, he hurled invectives here and there. And now he is showing an iron fist and he is giving us all that iron fist. Maybe a lot have just kept quiet out of fear but I think it is still human rights that is most important here and not the bully who tells us “Hey surrender or else I will kill you. You know, there are lots of ways like sports for example. Our new president is a show-off who is no different from Donald Dump (sic) with whom I can’t tell what could happen. Let’s wait and see but I just can’t blurt out the right (words). Why don’t you target the bigwigs, and stop picking on those poor judges to point a finger at each other. So what happens is you buy heads, so there is more killings. Is that what we want to show the future generations that hey it’s ok to kill. It’s in the Bible. Are Pinoys getting too extreme now or is it the leaders? Are they claiming to have clean hands? You see a lot of people with dirt in their hands why not get them first? Target the big fish not the poor. It should be. Let’s make the Philippines a fair country where everyone given equal treatment.
Mayor, I am not afraid of you, I’m not an addict, I rarely drink. Why don’t you submit everyone to a drug test including yourself. Let everyone take it. Not just the policemen, but all those people who surround you. Because you are in power now, you can do whatever you want and you can say whatever you want but it is very unfair to the masses. While yes, things that are happening are ok, let’s just wait and see. But I am very disappointed especially with Manny Pacquiao who is a Christian. He says b**t*h it’s ok to kill, but the gays, the lesbian, LGBT (Lesbians, gays bisexual and transsexuals) they are worse than animals. A killer when they say an addict will always be an addict, are we saying a killer will always be a killer. That’s my question to you. There is no difference between the two because everyone deserves to have second chances and it depends on us. But so far, I am very disgusted with what is happening. You are not scaring people, you are using the masses to your advantage and you are no better than them. You are also an addict, you’re a sociopath, that’s all. God bless you, mightily This is Baron Geisler and I am not afraid of you, not even drunk, only tired, tired of all of these bu***it and non-sense. Me, Baron Geisler signing out, bye.”
