Democrat Party extremism

8 05 2014

Democrat_Party_logoThailand’s Democrat Party is lost in its own extremism. The following quotes, drawn from Khaosod, indicate that its politics is so extreme that it has lost touch with common decency. Or perhaps they simply display the incapacity of elites to understand anything that could be construed as decent or common.

In commenting on the demise of Yingluck Shinawatra via yet another judicialized putsch, someone who is said to be a “senior legal adviser” to this sorry lot, Wirat Kalayasiri stated that the government should resign to accept responsibility: “According to social courtesy, now that the court has removed the Prime Minister, the rest of the Cabinet should also resign to show responsibility for the country and society…”.

Such a statement might be expected from the opposition. However, Wirat then stated: “Look at South Korea. Their leader resigns just because a ship sank…”.

Wirat clearly cares not a bit for human life. The Korean prime minister offered his resignation not because a ship sank, but because of the criticism resulting from the deaths of almost 200 people in the ferry disaster. But then it was the Democrat Party-led government that launched crackdowns on red shirt protesters, resulting in the deaths of almost 100, and none of their leadership took responsibility.

This inhumane attitude is taken even further by Democrat Party spokesman Chavanond Intarakomalyasut issued a threat to Thailand’s voters and to the government. He demanded the government resign, stating: “If they still want to have an election in this situation, I believe the Thai population will decrease by hundreds…”.

Clearly, Chavanond and the Democrat Party are threatening violence and deaths should Thailand ever get to an election that was tentatively scheduled for 20 July.

Chuan’s forgetfulness | Political Prisoners in Thailand

[…] When we read that he had “warned the 500 newly elected MPs to behave themselves and not to repeat the misbehaviour of lawmakers of the past,” we thought the story was going to be about the horrid behavior of anti-democrat members of the Democrat Party who have repeatedly boycotted elections (they couldn’t win) and run amok in parliament. Indeed, they became anti-democrat extremists. […]
