    The Right Shirt

     

    The Right Shirt

     

    A friend said something to me today implying that some people are seen as "red shirt supporters" I guess that includes me, a lot of people I know personally and people on my fb list.

     

    What started as the silent majority making their voices heard in 2010 has morphed into a completely different entity, it has transcended the original use of the name which most people in Bangkok never understood anyway (red in the Thai flag, meaning the people).

     

    Wearing a red shirt in Thailand did not make any difference, no more than a yellow shirt did. What made the difference is that you were all wearing 'the right shirt'. When you lost 99 family members and friends in 2010 you were wearing 'the right shirt'. When you behaved impeccably and still do with gentlemanly composure during the current crisis you were and are wearing 'the right shirt'.

     

    On the other hand 'the wrong shirts' continuously change on demand, do wrong on demand, threaten on demand and hijack democracy on demand.

     

    So 'the right shirt' supporters out there should be proud to say "YES I AM RED"
