The liberal media outlet (PM)MSNBC reports on the recent upsurge of violence
in Bangkok. Readers will note that the red-shirts are cast in the light of heroic victims, the champions of the poor, rising up against the "royalist elite" who dominate the current government.
It's ironic that the entire thing was actually looking to be peacefully resolved, and then, the red shirts go and make extra demands, and the government goes "Bother that! When will they stop?"ReplyDelete
They scuttle their own chances, and then cry poor when they get shot at.
Then again, this is the MSM. Asking for balance, or the truth is like asking the sun not to rise. It's just not on.
I found this over at Gates of Vienna. You might be interested in this first hand account.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the link -always nice to get a first-hand account on these things. It is the MSM and 'PMSNBC' it often considered the worst of the worst when it comes to left-wing propaganda companies, but I point it out not so much because I expect them to be completely accurate but because of the old saying, "tell me who your friends are and I'll tell you what you are". With so many people trying to put the best face possible on these red-shirt renegades I think it is important to note that the media outlets that are portraying them as the "good guys" are the likes of MSNBC, CCTV and numerous leftist-communist groups around the world.ReplyDelete
As it has been on my mind as of late, the article you linked to also reminded me of the referendum in Mexico which voted to create a monarchy and offer the throne to Maximilian. It has since been judged absolutely fraudulent; something the French trumped up to add legitimacy to their cause. Of course, the outrage over that flies in the face of the fact that there had practically never been a change in power based on a legitimate vote of the whole country in the entire history of Mexico.ReplyDelete
