More Thuggery, Ahem, "New Politics" From the Morally Pure PAD

PAD urges supporters to block PM from flying back to Bangkok

The Nation

The People's Alliance for Democracy Saturday called on its supporters in southern provinces to block four airports to prevent Prime Minister Somchai Wongsawat from flying back to Bangkok.

Somchai visited Nakhon Si Thammarat Saturday by flying to Surat Thani airport and traveling by car to his home province of Nakhon Si Thammarat.

Some PAD leaders told its supporters Saturday morning of Somchai's itinerary and urged them to block the airports.

The Thai media is a joke. I wonder what their reaction to the PAD(or even the government) would be if their buildings were taken over and they were prevented from publishing and/or their editors were prevented from flying.

Of course, the media didn't care when there was a coup or when the military commits crimes.

This is the nature of the Thai media's morality: If you are a criminal who opposes Thaksin, your crimes are condoned and your behavior enabled by supportive propaganda, but if you are related to Thaksin in anyway, you are guilty by association, regardless if you have committed a crime or not.

Fonzi, hi.

There are a lot of problems with the government, which appears to be liberally sprinkled with thugs an criminals.

Yet you never seem to consistently direct your attention in their direction, nor did you with the previous government, nor did you with the Thaksin government.

Why is that?
