Princess on tour

10 04 2014

We are taking bets that Democrat Party loudmouth Mallika Boonmetrakul is not going to be charged with lese majeste. Of course,  no one should be charged with lese majeste, but this loudmouth has often called for others to be charged under the draconian law. In addition, the royalist dolts at the Democrat Party have been ranting in unison with others about lese majeste in recent days. So it would be some kind of poetic justice of the one standard variety if Mallika, so often struck down by foot-in-mouth syndrome, was actually hauled over some lese majeste coals for a grievous attack on a royal.

Yes, we know that Article 112 does not apply to lesser royals, but that has never stopped the toady Democrat Party from screaming about lese majeste when lesser royals are “insulted,” usually with the truth.

Why are we ranting?  According to Khaosod, the “ruling Pheu Thai Party has lashed out at a deputy spokeswoman of the Democrat Party who falsely accused Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra of attempting to flee the country.” It adds:

In a Facebook post – which has now been deleted – Ms.  Mallika Boonmetrakul published a photograph showing rows of baggage and boxes at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport, and alleged that the baggage may have belonged to Ms. Yingluck who is attempting to flee Thailand amid the ongoing political crisis.

Nothing lese majeste there you say! Certainly not. Mallika was just insulting Yingluck and the doubtful intelligence of those who would read her Facebook page. Those “fans” didn’t pause to consider if this claim could be true, but “commentators also posted comments criticising the owner of the baggage for displaying such apparent luxury and unnecessary waste of taxpayers’ money.”

The problem was that the expensive bags and tons of them at that actually “belongs to Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana, who was flying to a fashion event in London.”

Of course, neither Mallika nor these dopey “commentators” then turned their attention to the “apparent luxury and unnecessary waste of taxpayers’ money” involved when a minor princess traipses around the world in a “career” that is just one on a list of the rich kid’s bucket list of “great” things she will be “great” at. She certainly seems to be great at spending the taxpayer’s money.

The Puea Thai Party didn’t call for lese majeste to be used, but the party did urge that wimpy Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva “take disciplinary action against Ms. Mallika and make her take responsibility for her dissemination of false information.”

Perhaps Mallika should be taken to the court of double standards for her bollocking of Yingluck as a leech on society while refusing to criticize a minor princess for the same “crime.”
