Death threat

24 12 2013

Thanks to a reader, PPT located a story with this paragraph:

… Suthep [Thaugsuban] claimed that 3.5 million people joined anti-government protests in Bangkok yesterday. Security forces estimated the crowds at 270,000, still making them the largest so far. Suthep urged protesters to block the registration of election candidates and declared that if the election went ahead “we will shut down the entire country and no one will vote.” His movement would keep “chasing” Yingluck until she either quit office or “was dead.”

We can well understand Suthep’s desperation, and he knows he has to get his crowds angry and violent – hence the attacks on journalists. Mammoth lies – PPT thinks even 270,000 is too high for the protesters yesterday – are now replaced by death threats against the premier.

Should the anti-democracy movement succeed, expect huge numbers of political prisoners, harassment, political murders and wide-ranging censorship. The regime will look a lot like 1976-77 under another repressive royalist regime.

We saw that in 2009 and 2010 when he had access to state power and weapons and he is doing it again with thugs and a hatred that threatens his opponents with death. […]
