Thanong on the plot to make Thailand a ‘slave country’-Bangkok Pundit

March 5, 2012

[CJ Hinke of FACT comments: Wow, and we worry about being conspiracy theorists. We trust our name was not taken in vain, if grammatically incorrect. We can only disagree with Thanong’s conclusions; other than that crucial point, he gets it right. I am a Westerner but Thailand is also my country. I have no hidden agenda, just free thought and free speech.]

Bangkok Pundit: March 4, 2012

Thanong in The Nation:

We can see that the plot has been outlined and implemented so artfully to create deep divisions within the country. The theme is dialectical: the poor against the rich; the phrai against the ammart; democracy against dictatorship; freedom against censorship; freedom of expression against the lese majeste law.

The foreign interests – the foreign media, foreign governments and foreign institutions – have been active players in this dialectical process in Thailand. They support the “poor” against the “rich Bangkokians”. They back the phrai against the ammart. They promote “democracy” against “military dictatorship”. They support media freedom against censorship, even though the thousands of websites sprouting up against the monarchy are loaded with obscene language. And finally, they are in favour of amending the lese majeste law so that anybody can attack the monarchy freely.

It is all a double play – for the external factors that seek to influence the course of Thai politics have been benefiting from the pro-West and liberalisation policies of the Thai military, the Democrats and the Pheu Thai Party all the same.

No matter which government is in power, it “must open up” the economy and country to foreign participation. This is the key.

But these external forces at play are still not happy with the status quo that they have already been in control of, from the banking sector, the stock market to the liberalisation of economic policies.

The endgame is nothing more than complete control so that Thailand is reduced to the status of a slave country that becomes part of a broad alliance in the upcoming Third World War.

BP: As usual, Thanong’s worldview sounds very  similar to Sondhi L.

btw, the external forces are in charge of the status quo? Really? What will a slave country be like? Singapore and Hong Kong with more liberalized economies?

  1. This is the same doggrel that TC, aka Tony Carlucci(?), had been singing for months… maybe just weeks but it sure seemed like months… prior to Sondhi/Thanong/PAD harmonizing.

    It is not clear if the rearguard used TC as their avant garde, or if TC had been an “independent” font which was adopted after the fact by the PAD, but certainly they are now singing the same tune.

    It is “clever” , I suppose, to try to align the reactionary PAD with the left and its criticism of neo-liberal imperialism… but both the ancien regime – Korn Chatikavanij is SG Warburg/JP Morgan for crissakes – and the Puea Thai are willing and eager to play ball with neo-liberal imperialists, to sell the land, water, and air out from under their ‘countrymen’ (the Democrats seem to be Englishmen and TC claims to be a US Marine)… anything for a baht, right?

    So TC/PAD are left trying to sell a distinction without a difference on this one. Oversell, I might add. If there’s one saleaman that’s likely to get the door slammed in his face its TC/PAD trying to push this “new! improved!” blivit*.
