A few days ago PPT posted a statement by Chatwadee Rose Amornpat on the maddest of mad monarchists in Thailand, the Rubbish Collection Organization led by Major-General Rientong Nan-nah a notorious fascist.
Rose alerted us to some of the RCO’s most recent efforts to gag, capture and harass persons it identifies as anti-royal.
Prachatai reports that the ultra-royalists are now targeting Facebook and Youtube for allowing content they consider to constitute lese majeste.
Rientong has issued a statement declaring “that he will file criminal defamation charges against Facebook and Youtube” as well as “many people allegedly defaming the monarchy, for defaming him.”
In his banal statement, Rientong stated: “As I have been affected by people defaming the King, I have to file defamation charges against those who defamed me.”
He has “addressed an open letter to Gen Paiboon Kumchaya, Minister of Justice, requesting to have legal consultancy from the ministry and mentioned that he will be solely responsible for the legal action.”
Another of the RCO’s recent antics is a bizarre claim that anything critical of the monarchy is an attack on the human rights of the royals. This allows the maniacal monarchists to make one of the maddest of claims: that the lese majeste law “is necessary for protecting human rights of the Thai monarchy because the monarchy is a pillar of Thai society.”
