Red buffaloes got smarter

From Naewna, December 21, 2017
Red buffalo on the left: Any one of us, red buffaloes, want to go for monitoring Muadjeab’s case?
Red buffalo in the middle: No… they will dupe us again.
Small chicken: Follow me… fighting… fighting…
Caption: Today red buffaloes in the whole country know it… only the white buffaloes can be duped.

[Refers to Sunisa “Jeab” Lertpakawat, former Pheu Thai Party deputy spokeswoman, who was charged for Facebook posts criticizing the government. Sunisa is called “Muadjeab” because of her former position as an army lieutenant.
To refer to a person as a “buffalo” is an insult meaning they are stupid. Here it is used to refer to the pro-Thaksin Red Shirts.
The white buffalo, some with Uncle Sam hats, represent similarly stupid white people (foreigners) who support Sunisa due to the human rights or freedom of speech issues.
The cartoonist implies that Red Shirt followers know now that they are simply used as pawns by billionaire politicians who wish to manipulate political events.]
