November 16, 2020 (Brian Berletic – LD) – One strongpoint of these US-funded anti-government protests here in Thailand is their social media game.

They claim it’s is because it’s a “youth movement” and they are simply better at using technology than the so-called “old” establishment.

But this isn’t true.

The US-funded anti-government protests are so successful on social media because the US-based social media networks they are using have tilted the entire game in their favor.
