Every day will be Dictator Day

12 11 2017

The Nation reports on The Dictator’s “weekly televised monologue on Friday,” and his claims about his six questions, described in the Bangkok Post as one question fro General Prayuth Chan-ocha: “Is everybody all right with my staying around as leader indefinitely to keep politicians in their proper place, by which I mean under our boots?”

Political activity is banned but The Dictator “has encouraged people to take part in the political process…”. How? Well, by “answering the six questions he has posed concerning the election and future politics.”

Prayuth’s usual refrain was repeated. Despite having campaigned in the 2011 election, despite having gleefully ordered his men to gun down red shirt protesters in 2010 while supporting anti-democrat protesters in 2013 and 2014, despite running a coup in 2014, and despite having been unelected premier since 2014, The Dictator declares “he had no political motivation and he had no intention to intensify the political conflict.”

The Dictator seems to believe that Thais are idiots and believe this bucket of buffalo feces.

He went further into the land of the unhinged dictatorship claiming he “only wanted to create some understanding and help lay out some principles for the people…”.

Madder still, he concocted this lie:

What does that mean, when you say you want people to have a voice and be able to make a change in politics? So, all good and patriotic politicians should agree [with the idea of having people answer the six questions]….

You can have a voice, as long as it says “Yes, sir!”You can only agree with him. If not, then you are bad and unpatriotic.

He went on to warn “politicians” (again). He means the ones who do not polish his posterior. He demanded they “should behave and provide good governance so as to give hope to the country and the people.”

The Dictator gave a picture of his political future saying that “highly anticipated reform” (he means his fixing of the political rules) can only be “realised if political parties integrated their policies with the national strategy that was being written by the regime.”

Any party that wants to win the junta’s “election,” whenever they decide to allow one, has to be allied to the junta. They should make The Dictator their premier.

Every day will be Dictator Day.
