On the banner in the background: Communist Party of Thailand
Man: They didn’t allow us to establish a party… This party’s policy is more dangerous than ours by ten times. But they allow them to set up the party.
[Refers to the Communist Party of Thailand which was refused by the election commission in its attempts to establish a political party.
In the cartoon, the communist members contend that the Future Forward Party led by Thanathorn Jungrungreangkit (pictured on TV) is more threatening to Thailand than the communists.
This opinion is likely due to the Future Forward Party’s use of Red Shirt rhetoric to describe its leader, the inclusion of many lese majeste opponents in its ranks, and its desire to ditch the junta-written charter.]
