Not unlike La Raza in America, the mainstream media has ignored and even assisted the red shirt movement in Thailand with hiding its violent Marxist ideology and their calls for class warfare. As the red shirt leaders on stage called for the burning of Bangkok, the mainstream media spun stories of disenfranchised peasants fighting for their voice to be heard.
The following clip shows National United Front of Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD) red shirt leader Nattawut Saikuar declare (in Thai) that if he, or any of the other red shirt leaders are captured, to burn down the entire nation.
With the capture of the red shirt leadership on May 19, 2010 no one can deny it was empty rhetoric as buildings throughout the city burned to the ground and city halls in Thaksin's northern stronghold were torched and destroyed.
The shocking amount of violence may have come as a surprise to some, but those who have watched the red movement develop since Thaksin Shinwatra's ousting in 2006 knew it was only a matter of time before the fevered rhetoric and threats of violence became a reality. Between Maoist re-education schools operating up north, to the calls to arms in the red shirt's various publications, the creation of class warfare was just a matter of time.
UDD red shirt leader Jakrapob Penkair hinted in April 2009 that the time of class warfare was coming sooner than later. Asia Times reported: "Before going into exile, Jakrapob told this correspondent that the UDD had clandestinely moved small arms from Cambodia to Thaksin's supporters in Thailand's northeastern region, where the exiled premier's popularity runs strongest. He told other news agencies that the UDD was willing to launch an "armed struggle" to achieve its goals, which included the toppling of the government and restoration of Thaksin's power."
The red shirt's self-proclaimed intellectuals put their spin on the movement, deciding it as the only logical outcome of "injustice" while admitting the communist nature and organization of the movement. Self-confessed Marxist and red shirt leader Giles Ungpakorn spins the red shirt movement in terms eerily similar to the characterization of another Marxist engineered class war brewing on the other side of the planet ... La Raza in the United States.
La Raza also uses similar calls of perceived injustices as validation for violence. With the mass media's blissful ignorance, La Raza will fester, grow, and amass until you wake up with a violent mob challenging the rule of law in the final stages of a class war too far in progress to stop. Tensions will be high, as they were in Bangkok. The mass media will call for restraint in enforcing the law while the La Raza leadership incites their followers into a blood thirsty mob. Violence will break out and should the masses succeed in defeating security forces and break down the existing system, the final product of class war will look very similar to Pol Pot's Cambodia.
The end of private property, the end of the Bill of Rights, the end of your freedom and your humanity.
Study the rise of Thailand's reds, understand their mindset, the failure of the government and the people of Thailand to expose and stop them, the media's role in covering up their true intentions and nefarious activities, and avoid repeating this tragedy in the United States.
