This movement is youth-led, you see.
After thousands of years, all of a sudden, the youth just spontaneously decided it didn’t like the monarchy.
It’s very simple and totally believable.
At least 55 people were hurt, some with gunshot wounds, when demonstrators marching on the Thai parliament clashed with police and royalist counter-protesters, in the worst violence since a new youth-led protest movement emerged in July.
Police fired water cannon and teargas at protesters who cut through razor-wire barricades and removed concrete barriers outside parliament. The police denied that they had opened fire with live ammunition or rubber bullets, and said they were investigating who might have used firearms.
The protest movement, which has called for deep constitutional reform to a system demonstrators say has entrenched the power of the military, has emerged as the biggest challenge to Thailand’s establishment in years.
Thousands of demonstrators converged on parliament to put pressure on lawmakers discussing changes to the constitution. The protesters also want the removal of Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha, a former army ruler, and to curb the powers of King Maha Vajiralongkorn.
Bangkok’s Erawan Medical Centre said at least 55 people were hurt. It said at least 32 were suffering from teargas and six people had gunshot wounds. It did not say who might have used firearms.
“We tried to avoid clashes,” the deputy head of Bangkok police, Piya Tavichai, told a news conference. He said police had tried to push back protesters from parliament and to separate them and the yellow-shirted royalist counter-protesters.
Protesters advanced on police with makeshift shields, including inflatable pool ducks. After about six hours, police pulled back and abandoned their water trucks, which the protesters mounted and sprayed with graffiti.
“I hereby announce the escalation of the protests. We will not give in. There will be no compromise,” Parit “Penguin” Chiwarak told the crowd at the gates of parliament before protesters dispersed.
I just can’t imagine what the world thinks when they look at this.
I know that Thais say it is outsiders coming in and stirring up trouble. They don’t really understand the larger implications. But they know this is a completely unnatural event.
Thailand is a free country, and there is little or nothing to complain about, other than poverty, which you’re not going to solve by overthrowing the government. Furthermore, none of these rioters have experienced poverty – this is a bourgeoisie revolt, and they make that very clear.
The poor people are all out supporting the king and telling these brats to go back to their high-rise condos.
Stupid rich kids are always going to be used as weapons against the traditional society. It’s what you’re seeing on the streets of America, with Antifa. None of those are working class people, because the working class has no interest in communism.
It’s sad to see this happening in a society as old as Thailand, which is in fact one of the oldest cultures in the world.
But it’s unlikely the Thais will be able to prevent this.
The new rule is: no one in the world is allowed to be different, in any way, from the globalist system. That means that Thais, along with Chinese or South American communists, Moslems, or whoever else, have to have a revolution or a war to change their system.
This is a necessary part of the Great Reset, and that is why you are seeing all of these wars and revolutions in the middle of this fake pandemic.
