NutWrench: Under Thailand's lese majeste legislation, anyone convicted of insulting the king, queen, heir or regent faces up to 15 years in prison on each count.The King, Queen, heirs and regents of Thailand are all fascist assholes with delusions of adequacy.
baronbloodbath: I proclaim myself Baron Bloodbath, royal regent of Thailand, superior to all Thai Royalty now, in the past, or in the future. I usurp your throne, King Bumbabooie, Son of a one legged Vietnamese call girl.
HailRobonia: Normally when this comes up all sorts of FARKers rush to the defense of the Thai government, e.g. "you've got to be a moron if you don't realize how beloved the Thai king is and how important he is to the Thai people blah blah blah."
ChipNASA: Mmmmmmmm Now I'm hungry...I want Thai food now.FARK YOU SUBBY!!!!!
ha-ha-guy: NutWrench: Under Thailand's lese majeste legislation, anyone convicted of insulting the king, queen, heir or regent faces up to 15 years in prison on each count.The King, Queen, heirs and regents of Thailand are all fascist assholes with delusions of adequacy.Actually I hear the King himself is not a huge fan of these laws. It's more like the ruling party yells "You offended the king!" and tosses people they don't like in jail. Since the King is part of the government, being critical of the government is being critical of the King. Basically it's a political tool.
brilett: But - what was in the bio that was so offensive? Link to it?
Fo Shiz: If you want to protest, do so by boycotting Chicken of the Sea, which is a Thai owned multinational.
