Expat preaching McCarthyism in Thailand

Re: "Why tolerate expats who support insurrection?" Letters, February 14.

It seems that Chalerm Yoobamrung has found his farang alter-ego in Eric Bahrt. As an American, Mr Bahrt should be familiar with McCarthyism. His letter regarding the deportation of expatriates disloyal to this government reflects the same kind of self-righteous bigotry.

Mr Bahrt, please stick to your food and animal reports. When it comes to humans, you seem to miss the plot.
