PDRC chief, Mr. Suthep Thaugsuban, announced to his audience at Lumpini Park rally site on Sunday to catch Caretaker Prime Minister Ms. Yingluck Shinawatra.
This is not the first time the former Democrat MP has made such an announcement. Despite the hate speech, personalised sexist attacks and the threats of harm on Ms. Yingluck, the small crowd take pleasure when Mr. Suthep speaks.
There is no indication of what PDRC would do if they are successful in illegally detaining the Caretaker PM. The mob rule has seen many physically assaulted and terrified, while the hate speech speaks of great violence. This leaves a terrible impression of what PDRC male guards intend to do.
Hate speech is a tool widely used by political opponents for as long as we can remember. Just because it is common does not mean it is right to say words of harm and cruelty.
The PDRC mob, mainly middle class and disgruntled elites from Bangkok, have promised to introduce a minority-controlled system. This proposed unelected council would be filled by “good people” but with the threat of violence from PDRC, many critics doubt that the neo-fascist group has any “good people” within their ranks.
