You know what you can have too much of? Well, according to Thailand’s
Coup Master Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O-Cha the answer to this one is, “Democracy.”
On March 23rd, 2015 (around the time period when he banned public discussion about democracy), this fashion strongman lamented to a crowd that, “In the past, our society experienced many problems, because we were too democratic.”
After all, if Thailand wasn’t 99% democratic, “We’d jail (our opponents) and put them before the firing squad. Then it would all be over and I wouldn’t have to lie awake at night.”
Jeez, talk about night terrors.
Two days later, Prayut Chan-O-Cha channeled Rahm Emanuel a bit when he told reporters to help him, “Create love and unity. We’ve come to this point anyway, so let’s turn a crisis into an opportunity.”
So Thailand, how is that non-coup-coup working out for you?
