Meanwhile, Democracy Crumbles In Thailand

Wednesday, December 3, 2008

There's no shortage of coverage for Thailand's political crisis. The democratically elected Prime Minister was ousted by the courts after a small group of protesters put Thailand's tourism and travel industry to a standstill. The People's Alliance for Democracy wants Thailand to "return to its past policies" according to Associated Press. Near the bottom of the report, AP mentions that the protesters want to "eliminate the one-person, one-vote system." That's as far as media goes in explaining what these protesters want.

The truth is that the PAD wants to destroy democracy. The media refuses to report this simple fact. The thousand-something people who mysteriously managed to cripple Thailand's infrastructure is "a coalition of royalist businessmen, activists and academics" (in other words elitists) who hate the PM because of his support from "the poor rural and urban majority.".

It's an open secret that these opponents of democracy have "support within the powerful Thai monarchy, perhaps from Queen Sirikit, who has been notable for expressing sympathy for PAD members."

What we have here folks, is Thailand on the verge of a communist-style China, where the monarch stands at the top of a ruling elite class. And much like here in the US, democracy is being usurped primarily through the courts. Why won't our media report the truth?
