Knuckle-draggers, knuckle-heads and other anti-democrats have gotten pretty darn agitated by Yingluck Shinawatra’s recent tears. We don’t imagine that any of them can see past their hatred of a popular politician and her troubles as concocted by the military dictatorship.
But one line by Deputy Dictator General Prawit Wongsuwan caught our eye. In dismissing Yingluck, he reportedly stated that “everyone must adhere to the law.”
If that were true, he wouldn’t be Deputy Dictator and illegal coup-makers would be jailed.
If that were true, the popcorn gunman wouldn’t have been acquitted.
If that were true, the Thai Rak Thai Party would not have been dissolved using law retrospectively.
If that were true, the military dictatorship would have 3,000 people awaiting trial for reposting a BBC Thai story on King Vajiralongkorn.
If that were true, there would have been an investigation of the theft of the 1932 plaque.
If that were true, all those committing torture, disappearances and so on, would be jailed.
If that were true, military murders would be jailed.
If that were true, the Red Bull killer would be in jail.
If that were true…. We don’t need to go on. This general is a nasty nitwit.
