US-funded mobs seek escalation in bid to destabilize Thailand, ruin Thai economy, and destroy ties between Thailand and China. Western media covers up, spins violence.
October 21, 2020(Tony Cartalucci – LD) – Several thousand US-funded anti-government protesters violently attacked multiple police lines in a failed bid to storm Thailand’s Government House in the capital, Bangkok.
Police fell back several times – some police sustaining injuries – in an attempt to delay additional violence for as long as possible.
The Western and local opposition media including fronts funded directly by the US government such as Prachatai, iLaw, Thai Lawyers for Human Rights, and Isaan Record – sidestepped any mention of the word “violence” and instead described clashes with police and the destruction of barricades as “passing police lines.”
As protesters reached Government House, they faced insurmountable barriers, riot control vehicles, and hundreds of police – demanded the Thai prime minister resign, then called off their rally vowing to return in “3 days.”
The US-backed mobs seek to oust the current government, dismantle Thailand’s institutions and replace them those serving their foreign sponsors – then roll back Thai-Chinese relations.
China is currently Thailand’s largest trade partner, investor, source of tourism, and even arms supplier. China is also a key partner for several major Thai infrastructure projects including its rollout of 5G technology as well as a high-speed railway that will link Thailand to China via Laos.
The US government funds virtually every aspect of the ongoing Thai protests – evidence of which can be found on the US National Endowment for Democracy’s (NED) own official website including the name of core opposition organizations as well as the amount of US government money given to each.
Just as the US has done in Hong Kong – it is funding agitators to disrupt, undermine, and if possible overthrow Thailand’s political system – denying China a valuable economic partner and regional ally and hindering the collective rise of Asia.

Recently, Thai protesters officially “linked” their movement to US-funded opposition groups in Hong Kong – calling themselves the “Milk Tea Alliance.”
Disappointing turnouts and violence have plagued the US-funded protests in Thailand which have been ongoing – on and off – since 2014 with the most recent wave beginning this year. The Western media and their local partners have attempted daily to cover up protester violence and inflate their numbers which have yet to top 20,000 on peak days for Bangkok where over 12 million people live in or around.
