Democracy in Thailand is fake news

From Thairath, November 23, 2020
Left: Fabricated news
On bag: Resign
Right: Fake news
On the statue: Democracy

[At left the cartoonist shows an example of fabricated news. As is traditional before Thai protests, rumors are circulated that the government is collapsing, a coup is underway, or, in this case, that PM Prayuth was giving up and resigning. Such rumors are meant to encourage participants in protests and shake the government.
The government made a big show of mocking the clearly fabricated rumors of the PM resigning that were blatantly spread by the protest leaders.
The cartoonist jokes than an even bigger scandal is the state of democracy itself in the country. Despite its proud Democracy Monument, the cartoon contends that news of democracy existing in Thailand is fake news.]
