The fear of Anti-Communism in Thailand 2010s

Have you ever heard of “The fear of Communism in the 1950s” and stuff like McCarthyism? American people are really afraid of communism, because they really know what it is. Many American public schools may not included that the situation of Cold War are much serious, but smart American will know it by themselves.

In Thailand, the history books have never said anything bad about communism, because China and Russia are our friends. Thai people also do not really worry about communism, too. They believe that it will never happen in Thailand. Communist Party of Thailand was founded in the same era of Cold War about 1940’s. Nothing was successful in that period. A Thai old history professor in my middle school had a really solid faith. She said that Thailand cannot be Communist, but it was the first year of Thaksin Government, so she did not know how he was.

Thai flag defines 3 things by its colors which are Red is Nation, White is Religion and Blue is King. All the three are the main institutes which have been with Thailand since the Sukhothai kingdom in 1200’s century. Communist has no Nation, no Religion and no King. This is the reason why Thailand had never been afraid of Communism.

Currently (Spring 2010), the power of money comes before these three institutes. Thai people are pretty sure that the Red Shirt protesters are paid to against Abhisit Government. A few Thai people in England were paid to make the website against Thai monarchy, and government. Many English-speakers do not really understand what happens, so they believe those posts. In fact, Thai Kings have been prevents the country from communists and soldier dictators. They really love their country, and its concept. The word, “Thai” means “Freedom”. Communist dictator will never give freedom to its people.

Sw is really feel sorry about the Red Shirt, and I would like to forgive them once they realize that they have been wrong. They are known as uneducated and farmers. They can make more money by protesting rather than by their farms. This does not mean all the farmers in Thailand are the Red Shirt Protester, and does not mean that Red farmers produce red rice, and other normal farmers produce white rice (Laugh). They do not really know what really going on, and what will be the result of their protesting. Their leaders always use ambiguous words to bend they thought to be the same way. Moreover, the Red Shirts are really sensitive when they see Thaksin cries online. There are many rumors say that Thaksin currently has a serious cancer, but Thaksin always confirms that he is so happy with his family. Logically, if the Red Shirt protesters do not really get the money, they will hate to burn themselves under the hottest sun, while Thaksin says that he is really happy.

God of the Money or Money is God for many people. Egyptian bills do have their ancient God as their country’s identity, although most of them are Islamic, not the Ra worship. You will see Horus supports pharaoh in here.

The fear of Anti-Communism in Thailand is if the Red-Shirts completed their goals. Thailand would be communist-like democratic under the power of one dictator. The dictator would pay for all poor people to vote him, and he would get the highest vote forever. He would use law to support his own business, and also many kinds of corruption from both him and his party would happen.

Some foreigners understand that Abhisit did not get elected to be Prime Minister, so they hate him. In fact, Abhisit will be elected if the poor people were not paid to vote. Thai people vote for members of the House of Representatives by regions. In the suburban from Bangkok where is the area of middle class people, Democrat Party – Abhisit Vejjajiva always gets the most votes. Likely, the Democrat Party’s main base of support is in Bangkok, by the educated people and office workers.

For all the foreigners’ misunderstanding about Abhisit and Thai democratic system, if all those people still keep paying the poor to vote, we will never have the real democracy.

In fact, the red shirt can have a happy life without a large amount of money. Everything has it own way to solve and to understand as long as you know what the most important thing of your life is.

Nicolas Cage : City of Angels and Bangkok Dangerous

If you can remember Nicolas Cage movies, City of Angels (1998) and Bangkok Dangerous (2008), that is perfectly 10 years in between. In Thai language, people call Bangkok, ‘Krung-Thep’ which actually means ‘City of Angels’. This seems like Nicolas Cage tend to love Thailand so much.

Thailand seems like the United States mixing with Mexico. People come to invest for big businesses, big companies and come to get job. There are many illegal workers from Myanmar and Cambodia, as well as the United States has the Mexican. Although they earn lower salary than Thai people, but it is still higher than they can get from in their country. Sw Eden has seen many female aliens work as babysitter and housewife, and male aliens are construction worker. Thailand also seems like Mexico which it has mafia in the same way, but it is not the same as Japanese Yakusa. Many times that police cannot help nice people although they want to. For example, the guy can choose between getting paid or getting shot. If you are hurt by mafia or some hooligan, what you should call or contact mass media, such as Thai TV Broadcast, Radio and Newspaper. When many people around the country know what happens, the hooligan will not dare to stop the police’s work.

From the City of Angels have been turned to be Bangkok Dangerous by Thai people themselves, especially now. The Red Shirt are empowered not to fear the police, and the police cannot stop them either. Many hooligans became the Red Shirt for this reason. If you heard of the news in Thailand, many cars’ mirrors were broken, public areas were bombs and nice people got hit even she was a woman. Bangkokers are now cheering the soldier to stop the Red Shirt completely. This is a kind of trap that the Red Shirt make for the Abhisit Democrat government. They try to tell the foreigner that Abhisit is a dictator with military base to force the country. If you are in his position, you will do just like what he does. Abhisit has to protect Thai people from Dangerous, and turn Bangkok to be City of Angels again.

If you think that Abhisit is communist or dictator, you are wrong. What he is doing is to prevent Thailand from being communist. Although in December, 2008, he was not from the election, but the previous governments did many unclean things to get to votes.

When Sw says Angels, it does not mean the messengers, but it means all people are nice. Thai children are taught that Thai original tradition is really nice. Everyone are kind. Those places are exist in the far far always town. I want the Red Shirt to go back to their places. I believe that they can find a lot of happiness rather than earning bucks to destroy others’ happiness.

I love you, Bangkok, my City of Angels.
