Thailand protests Anonymous 10/16/2020 (Fri) 15:09:47 No. 1004988
What are your thoughts on the protests in Thailand? Don't tell me this is another CIA color revolution and we as leftists should support thai royalists
>>1004988 You know it's gonna be a fun civil war when both sides are called 'People's Alliance for Democracy against Tyranny' with the order of the words switched around
>students doomed to fail
>>1004988 /Leftypol/s always like Red shirt, Yellow shirt... I just want the guillotine for gods sake!
>>1004988 I am interested in knowing more about them. All I got from when I visited padthailand last was that they all 'love their king' who spends most his time abroad and they are scared to talk politics. Seems like the military has most the power there.
>>1005002 Why? Students brought down hard right dictatorships in both Greece and Pakistan
Also brought down the government in France
>>1005046 Interesting, but this document is over 30 years old. I'm not sure, if it is up to date and relevant to the current situation.
>>1005075 yeh i know its old just an interesting Thailand type thing I happened to be looking at
>>1004988 Redshirts are based despite their porky overlords but needs more organization.
>>1005095 >despite their porky overlords Is this a bourgeois-democratic movement which tries to overthrow monarchism? Even if the redshirts aren't a socialist/communist movement, it is still more progressive than the current thai monarchy.
>>1004988 >yellow shirt I thought Thailand banned those for non-royals?
>>1005115 > bourgeois-democratic movement which tries to overthrow monarchism? Not really, more like a succdem movement that wants gibsmedat for rurals and poor people against porky as fuck monarchism (Thai King is the largest capitalist in Thailand)
>>1005115 Does Thai monarchy have any actual power though? The monarch getting filmed coming off a plane in an Guinea tee that doesn't fit and more fucked up than Hunter Biden would suggest the opposite
I'm doing some research on this subject and look what I've found! The red shirts seem to like Germany?? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Due7pvj1sMI
>>1004988 Cringe on both sides. But we should support the side that is not killing communists out right. Or just support China and the monarchy, your choice. >>1005218 The monarchy and the military clique behind them have completely transformed into capitalists. They’re a oligarchy with royal aesthetics. >>1006778 The students only want welfare and for Prayut to fuck off. Of course they would like a welfare state (even though Germany supports the monarchy more). Plus the king spends most of his life in Germany to the point that his proponents joke about the Thái capital being in Germany rather than Bangkok.
>>1004988 Why do they still have a monarchy post-1800
>>1007127 One of the few countires to avoid colonization
Thai anon here. Vietanon was mostly correct surprisingly. My thought on this matter was Red-Yellow shirt politics just kinda outdated. Yes,There was significant protesters who wear red shirt. but the original UDD organ didn't lead the protest.
Is it anti-monarchy or anti-current king?
>>1007655 Hard to say, Some were anti-monarch. Some were just The king. The protester just officially demand to curve the king puppet power as in the three demands. They said if the gov ignore these demands. All demands will "left to only one" Which implying to abolish the monarch anyway.
Both liberals so therefore I critically support the monarchy.
>>1007733 okie dokie
>>1007733 what a surprise
>>1007733 The ONLY correct position in this case is critical support for a nuke glassing the place and crushing libs and monarchoids at the same time
>>1004992 >Hello, is this the Thai People's Front? <Fuck off! >What? <"Thai People's Front" pff... we're the People's Front of Thailand! <Listen, the only people we hate more than the Monarchy are the bloody Thai People's Front <And the Thai Popular People's Front! Splitters! <AND the People's Front of Thailand! >What? <The People's Front of Thailand! Splitters! <WE'RE the People's Front of Thailand <Oh... I thought we were the Popular Front.
>>1004988 supporting the monarchy is the correct anti-imperialist (socialist) choice
>>1008525 >Socialism is when you preserve monarchy
>>1008525 How? They are too cucked to dig the Canal through the Kra Isthmus (which is what China would need to break a possible Us blockade of Singapore) anyway, so it's not like there's a counterhegemonic role they play.
socialist revolution>status quo>regime change that ruins the country no other options, and since neither of the camps will do the first best, I prefer second best
>>1008525 >and just on time the dengoids came a continue to suck neolib cocks You do know that the monarchy has been demolishing welfare for years, killing leftists by the dozens with CIA help, and now just with the same policies changed side to the PRC right? But you fuckers are spineless pricks with the only ideological backbone being “China = Good” so fuck off. >>1008611 Yeah, I sure love the status quo of right wing neoliberalism under Chinese patronage where I have to suck off to a useless faggot and his military puppeteers. Literally no different from any other neoliberal shitholes under the US patronage like Colombia or Pooland.
>>1008525 สวัสดีครับ เจ้าหน้าที่ กอ.รมน. เล่นบอร์ดนี้ด้วยหรอครับ
>>1008623 >Yeah, I sure love the status quo of right wing neoliberalism under Chinese patronage where I have to suck off to a useless faggot and his military puppeteers. Literally no different from any other neoliberal shitholes under the US patronage like Colombia or Pooland. Beats a situation like Syria, Libya, Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan, Egypt (in descending order of how bad it can get) ... Literally when has any non socialist revolution / regime change / color "revolution" changed things for the better in living memory anywhere? If socialism is not in the cards all that ends up happening is a lot of people die, infrastructure is ruined, and nothing changes for the better.

>>1004988 >Don't tell me this is another CIA color revolution How could this possibly be a CIA color revolution? Since when has Thailand been anything close to a counter-hegemonic power or had anything but a good relationship with the United States? The CIA doesn't just cook up protest movements for funsies.

>>1008546 because the US can't place a carrier battle group near Thailand, perfect strategy
I'm seeing shit from these protests that makes my skin crawl with cringe: I'm not yet screaming "color revolution" at it , but it surely is WAY TOO MUCH pozzed by liberalism.
>>1009558 liberalism is better than monarchy and they killed all the commmies so what's your problem? would right-wing protests make you feel better
>>1009558 better liberals who don't hang people for being communists then a monarchist dictatorship
>>1008662 >Literally when has any non socialist revolution / regime change / color "revolution" changed things for the better in living memory anywhere? What about the chinese new democratic revolution?
>>1009658 >Implying they wouldn't simply keep anticommunist legislation as it is in pure liberal style
>>1009658 >liberals who don't hang people for being communists Those exist?
From the little I know about this, the Red Shirts are /ourguys/ and the yellow shirts are astroturfed/royalist rightwingers. the spectre of Thaksin Shinawatra still looms large. When he was Prime Minister of Thailand, he was know for rural uplift, tangible improvements to the lives of rural Thailand like installing electricity etc. The coup against him has been a bitter pill for well over a decade now. Does anyone know any left wing thai groups?
>Germany lawmakers "closely following" events in Thailand >One of the leaders being literally a fatter version of Joshua Wong >Total support from Hong CUCKers >Shitty performative protests The clues start piling up for the worst, at this point i only hope they slay each other mercilessly

>>1010320 because right-wing authoritarianism is okay when it's outside the west, as you can see, thailand is located to the left of the line, therefore police brutality - good

>In Thailand, lèse majesté (insulting the monarch) is criminalized by Section 112 of the Thai Criminal Code. It is illegal to defame, insult, or threaten the king, queen, heir-apparent, heir-presumptive, or regent. Modern Thai lèse-majesté law has been on the statute books since 1908; "insult" was criminalized and lèse majesté was made a crime against national security in 1957. The punishment, last strengthened in 1976 and the only constitutional monarchy to do so since World War II, is three to fifteen years of imprisonment per count and has been described as the "world's harshest lèse majesté law"[1] and "possibly the strictest criminal-defamation law anywhere".[2] According to social scientist Michael Connors, its enforcement "has been in the interest of the palace."[3]:134 >There is substantial room for interpretation of the term "insult", which causes controversy. Broad interpretation of the law reflects the inviolable status of the King, resembling feudal or absolute monarchs. The Supreme Court decided that the law also applies to any previous monarchs. Criticism of any privy council member has also raised the question of whether lèse majesté applies by association. Even "attempting" to commit lèse majesté, making sarcastic comment about the King's pet, and failure to rebuke an offense have been prosecuted for lèse majesté. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%C3%A8se_majest%C3%A9_in_Thailand wtf
>>1010964 So, a carte blanche "arrest anyone I want" law, I assume.
>>1010856 Protest spreading to outside Bangkok. Police arrest more people they seen as leaders. And there was a huge rumour about coup.
>>1010981 Civil war in the making? Also do you have a good source?
I don't get the second part of your post. Who would claim that? Thailand is a US backed dictatorship and has been since the end of WWII.
>>1010882 Why do people choose that girl's look? The arthoe one with the glasses and the coloured hair. It looks really bad.
>>1010979 More like "accuse anyone I didn't like" The royalists mostly point fingers at anyone who triggered them or just get rid of some faces. And the gov,junta or not turned to blind on this shit.
>>1010994 it's kinda pathetic, the king does lines of coke on the asses of prostitutes in Munich but if point that out you go to jail, wtf
>>1010995 Explain why a military dictatorship is somehow the "socialist choice"? It's not like Thailand is even a state that opposes the U$ like Iran.
>>1010982 Maybe not. They were still believing in pacifism shit. no coffin,no tear I guess?
>>1011002 Ask that guy, I don't agree with him, I was just pointing out that some people think that the CIA is trying to over through their biggest lapdog.
What's the mean ideology of the opposition? Liberal, Socdem, or Socialist?
>>1011009 So wtf is happening? A clash of factions? What should we look out for that could be positive for socialists?
>>1010882 >tfw you watch to many anime
>>1011013 probably all three
>>1010995 As a Thai. I have a word for someone who support the monarch and junta to just own the libs or because Thai didnt went to their revolution fantasy. " พ่องตายไอ้ฝรั่งหน้าหี กล้าเรียกตัวเองว่านักสังคมนิยมได้ยังไง อยู่ดีไม่ชอบ ชอบไปเป็นสนมเลียควยเสี่ยโอ ไม่สนับสนุนไม่ว่า แต่เสือกเอาโคตรศักดินามากควาคนไทยแบบจริงๆจังๆ พวกมึงแม่งเหี้ยพอๆกับ พคท.รอ. อีกไอ้สัส "
>>1011013 everyone who didnt like the monarch-junta alliance.
>>1011025 What i can say is. Socialist can have opportunity to undermine the anti-junta movement and radicalize libs more than กราบ at King laps.
Uncritical support for the Junta. National liberation movement that develops productive forces more efficiently than a state that would be exploited by Western capital assuming an overthrow by the liberal opposition.
>>1011029 >>1011042 Glow harder

So is there a civil war brewing between liberals and nationalist?
>>1011050 Hard to say,if liberals still being dumb pacifists. More would like a massacre will happen.
r/GenZedeng is calling it a "color revolution" lmfao
>>1011054 several protest leaders have been arested
>>1011060 color revolutions tend to last a week, this started in febuary after a socdem party was banned https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Future_Forward_Party
>>1011061 yeah,look like the junta-monarch playing safe. but as unexpected nature of Sia O (aka the king).We can't sure how long it will turn to more violent.
>>1011074 the protestors will only get their demands meat if they storm government buildings
>>1011065 They don't seem that shitty. Maybe if SHTF they could even radicalize. Problem is i'm seeing libs having complete control of the protests: comparing these with the GJ in France for example you see that there's not the fighting spirit and the class related demands of them. The situation could change though, let's see where they go in the next 10 days.
>>1011085 as the leaders arrested.chance to radicalize is more growing. but for how long i cant sure. i'll done what i can.
>>1010964 Oh so thats why they were all scared af to talk politics there when I visited. Though im not surprised, they make you stand for the king in the theater before any movie starts. I just stood because didnt know if any glowies were there, but was one of the creepier moments
>>1011109 That and how their government sold their poor women to prostitution for western booj farangs. The monarchy is definitely in bed with the west, so many britbong, roos, and burger sexpats.
>>1011080 Government buildings are traps. Don't fall for it.
>>1011045 >Anyone not a retarded dengoid that cucked themselves to the king is glow Beyond parody.
>>1011085 >comparing these with the GJ in France for example you see that there's not the fighting spirit and the class related demands of them. The situation could change though, let's see where they go in the next 10 days. The French revolution started out as liberal and bourgieous.

Redshirts are based. Whether its Italians unifying Italy, anticlerical Mexicans yeeting the church, whites in the South yeeting nogs, or Thai workers fighting against royalists, I always came to like red-shirted movements. Red is also my favorite color along with blue.

>>1012717 Still can't understand why attack a place like this considered that it's FULL of Twitter libs out there spreading the message (unless they're preparing a huge crackdown for them too).
Any Thai anons follow or heard of this site?: https://uglytruththailand.wordpress.com/ I frequented it while I worked in the country. Used a VPN obviously, but as I understand censorship there is based on ISP's being ordered to block certain sites, not their equivalent of the NSA tracking your history. For instance, the wiki page on "lese majeste" is supposed to be blocked but I could access it anytime, along with other prohibited sites (which are supposed to load some image saying "this site is forbidden blah blah blah") Otherwise, we'll have to see how desperate the king and junta get to "restore order." They've used lethal force before (see the eerily named "6th of October Event" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/6_October_1976_massacre) at the behest of paramilitary groups. Things could get heated if such an attempt to scare protestors back into silence backfires into further radicalizing the movement. It only takes the police takings things too far at one university for things to rupture.
>>1012723 They can't DDoS twitter. It's too big. Why they think we're significant enough to bother with, I imagine, has to do with our recent spike in users. Thanks, /pol/!
Reminder the /leftypol/ line is uncritical support for the Thailand regime. They're separating themselves from the USA and are now facing a color revolution. Support this national liberation struggle from America's neocolonial hold.

Whether we're being ddosd by dengists or people pretending to be dengists either way it seems like we're about to go through another hong kong type shitfest where the point is to obscure allegiances etc and create a schizophrenic cloud around the narrative. It makes ansolutely no sense that the cpc would be ddosing us considering many of us over at the china general are critically supporting and defending their regime. I'm gonna say there's probably a way for the west to make us believe the chinese are ddosing us as part of a divide and conquer tactic. Whatever. China is still insanely based. They're only delaying the inevitable

>>1013247 The only way to defend that position is if you're a bordigist or council communist. If you don't support china but still support bolivia, cuba, the ussr in the past, dprk, or vietnam, you're just a retard.

POLL What is /leftypol/'s position on the Red Shirts? https://www.strawpoll.me/21128460
The issue of Thailand seems to be surprisingly controversial among leftists. Many believe, that the red shirt protests are a CIA led color revolution. So far, I have found only one prominent marxist who supports the Red Shirts: Taimur Rahman.

>Thailand’s Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha on Wednesday vowed to lift the state of “severe emergency” in Bangkok in an attempt to defuse the unrest that has led to intensifying anti-government protests. >“I will make the first move to de-escalate this situation,” Prayuth said during a taped televised address. “I am currently preparing to lift the state of severe emergency in Bangkok and will do so promptly if there are no violent incidents. >Democracy protesters have massed daily in the capital since last week, flouting the emergency edict prohibiting gatherings of more than four people. >Despite Prayuth’s offer to lift the state of emergency in the capital, protest leader Tattep Ruangprapaikitseree reiterated the movement’s demand for him to resign. >“Prayuth must resign first and that is the easiest thing to do,” he said. >The former army chief masterminded the 2014 coup and protesters say the military-drafted constitution rigged last year’s vote in his favour. >Activists are also demanding the powerful and ultra-wealthy monarchy stay out of politics – a previously taboo subject. >As Prayuth spoke, tens of thousands of protesters marched towards his office at Government House to demand his resignation as well as the lifting of the emergency measures and release of dozens of activists arrested in a crackdown. >“My duty as a national leader is to look after the needs of everyone in this country, and to try and balance sometimes very different and very extreme views so that we can all live together in this one land that belongs to us all and which we all love,” Prayuth said. >“I must lead the country based on the greater good of society, and the needs of silent people, too. I must lead the country based on principle, the law, and the will of parliament as the ultimate representative of the people. >“The only way to a lasting solution for all sides that is fair for those on the streets as well as for the many millions who choose not to go on the streets, is to discuss and resolve these differences through the parliamentary process. >“It is a slow process, but it is one that best avoids injury to our nation. We must show the maturity and patience to take the middle path. >“The protesters have made their voices and views heard. It is now time for them to let their views be reconciled with the views of other segments of Thai society through their representatives in parliament.” >Earlier, Bangkok’s criminal court backtracked on a ruling that ordered Voice TV – partly owned by exiled former premier Thaksin Shinawatra – to close over its coverage of the pro-democracy rallies. >The website was one of four media under investigation for violating computer crimes laws and the emergency decree aimed at curbing the civil unrest. But the court revoked the ruling and allowed all four media, including The Standard, The Reporters and Prachathai, to continue reporting freely. >The court said there “must be specific content that is illegal and authorities cannot shut down a whole page or URL”, Voice TV’s lawyer Winyat Chartmontri told reporters. >“The court said people’s freedom [of] communication must be protected and media outlets cannot be shut down. Press freedom is very crucial,” he said, adding that today’s decision cannot be appealed. Voice TV staff would continue their reporting duties “fully, professionally and factually”, said a statement on the outlet’s website. >Sunai Phasuk from Human Rights Watch hailed the court decision but warned journalists were still at risk. Their presence on the ground at protests “is considered by police as violating the emergency decree. They are not out of the woods yet”, he said. >An activist, 26-year-old Nat, said she was happy the court ruling about Voice TV had been overturned. >“We will still have a TV channel that reports the truth,” she said, urging for the freedom to protest to be returned too. https://archive.is/8s5an#selection-3652.0-3690.1

>>1014454 The Americans are not against supporting leftists when it serves their purposes. Likewise, I am not inclined to oppose those leftists based on the fact that they get American support, particularly when they are opposing actual aristocrats. With China moving into position as the major capitalist power in the world, we have to expect that the Americans are increasingly going to support revolutions against Chinese-backed states while simultaneously putting down similar revolutions in American-backed states. Whoever backs the revolutionaries, be it China or the United States, we should as well.
>>1019453 "Get the king out of politics" Cringe. how about "get the king out, full stop"
>>1019536 the Thai king was for the longest time an uncriticizable god, the fact that people are criticizing him on mass is already a large change in THai political culture.
>>1019551 It was only a matter of time that people criticized the monarchy after those gross "playboy prince" images got linked online.

>>1014410 can someone translate?
>>1013262 Or if you, y'know, practice common sense. Especially given all the countries you just mentioned have been at each other's throats numerous times. What kind of fantasy world do you live in where the USSR and China are both non-revisionist in spite of declaring the other to revisionist? Anyways: Bolivia, Cuba, the DPRK, and Vietnam are regional powers at best rather than global powers and, with the possible exception of Bolivia, don't have a literal bourgeois class with capital worth billions of dollars to throw around. China isn't some small state defending itself from colonial aggression: it's a power in its own right and is obviously advancing towards competing with other imperialist powers around the globe. Also the DPRK is a monarchy.

>>1025415 it's against people who think thailand protests are a color revolution because the reactionary state is somewhat friendly with china
>>1025424 Tbh it wouldn't surprise me if it was
>>1010993 cringe
>>1025451 It is. It’s just that because they’re not inherently anti-communist like the monarchy so leftists can use it to radicalize people. In a way, the Bolsheviks were a kind of color revolution backed by Germany, but they were smart enough to betray the Kraut immediately when they had the chance.
Imagine calling yourself a Marxist but denying that the bourgeoisie is a progressive force against monarchism. Like what is your end game? Thailand has no ascendant communist movent because of how politically retarded it is.

>>1037867 Context?
>>1019580 The absolute state of the monarchy
>>1006778 That's because they were protesting in front of the German embassy. Their ruler Vajiralongkorn and 30 of his girlfriends took a permanent residency in Bavaria and they are basically asking to extradite them (as if). It's kinda funny how Germany has a good reputation all around the world. Those PRopagandists are geniuses, I have to say that.
All this people crying about the bourgeois vs the monarchy seem to forget that the king is literally THE bourgeoisie. He is literally the biggest porky in the country.
>>1037856 The krauts sent Lenin from Switzerland to Russia. They jsut did it to destabilise Russia and tried(and failed) to take advantage of the chaos. They thought they could have Lenin on a leash or dead, they had neither.
>>1037895 Guy is a redshirt Girl is pro-royalist Suthep Thaugsuban supporter And Thaksin Shinawatra seems to be her neighbour as you can barely see him giving thumbs-up for the dude going bros before hoes.
>>1037902 >It's kinda funny how Germany has a good reputation all around the world. That's because we are just decent people who never did anything wrong!
>>1037913 I always laugh when Merkel is presented as the most powerful woman of the world and a problem-solver, while everytime a problem arises within Germany she sits it out and lets the first minister of her cabinet, who talks about it, take the fall. That's how she ruled all 16 years and that's why at one time, she had a 70% approval while her government had a 70% disapproval, a government she's the head of and supposed to be in charge of. I bet those were the same people.
>>1037904 Yep, there’s practically no big porkie that isn’t the king’s relatives and military personnel. Only the eternal dengoids think to even support the monarchy.
>>1037910 That's because he wasn't a puppet, which points to yet another reason why the October Revolution is radically different from color ones.
