The Truth about Thailand’s 2014 Military Coup

November 30, 2020 (Brian Berletic – LD) – The Western media and the US-backed protesters in Thailand have claimed the current Thai government is a “dictatorship” and that Thailand’s military constantly seeks to overthrow democracy through “coups.” 

I explain how this is untrue, how the abuses before the 2014 coup by the Yingluck Shinawatra government left the military no choice, and explain why the Western media covers this up and lied about it then – and still lies about it today.
