Does the Nitirat Group deserve to be punched?

From Manager, March 8, 2012
Left: [Worajate, head of the Nitirat Group, says] The King must take an oath in parliament to uphold the constitution!
Right: Before you scold the twins [who beat up Worajate], ask yourself whether you would like to punch the face of someone who says something like this.
[This reflects fears that the Nitrat Group proposals to amend laws regarding the monarchy would result in a monarch pledging to parliament in front of MPs. It also reflects the reality that the Thai political world sees little necessity to abjure violence.]

From Thairath, March 4, 2012
The cartoon title reads: Victim of 2012
On the arm: October 6, 1976 model [referring to the right-wing backlash in 1976 against the changes in Thai society resulting from the overthrow of the dictatorship in 1973]
Sign under Worajate’s arm: Nitirat
On the other sign: Media present news that fosters bias and irrational hatred.
