Tears of the red buffalo

From Manager, November 20, 2013
The red buffalo (representing Thaksin’s Red Shirt supporters): What the heck? Even when we heavily pressured them, they still judge that we’re guilty!!!

[This refers to the intense pressure the Thai courts have been under from Red Shirts this year to rule in favor of the government.
In May court offices were besieged by Red Shirts who threatened that judges would be kidnapped and replaced with pro-Red Shirt appointees. Later Red Shirts threatened to blockade judges residences in the lead up to ruling on the Pheu Thai’s attempts to amend the constitution.
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.]
