Thais arrest American for insulting the King

Written by Nick Farell

But that is what Americans do
The Thai authorities have arrested a bloke who is an American citizen and claimed he has made disparaging remarks about their king. Americans have been complaining about people who have royalty ever since they got rid of their in a French backed coup and replaced him with a corporate oligarchy and Paris Hilton.

The Thais are upset that the American posted a link on his blog four years ago to a banned book about the Southeast Asian nation’s ailing king, so they clearly have long memories. The 54-year-old man has denied the charges, which also include inciting public unrest and violating Thailand’s Computer Crimes Act.

The Thai-born man Joe Gordon, lived in the US state of Colorado for around 30 years before returning recently to Thailand for medical treatment, the website said. He is being held in a Bangkok prison after a Thai court denied his request for bail.

Good! Whatever nationalities you have, you must respect other nation's laws. Now that should be a lesson for him.

Quoting pogsnet:

Tell that to all the immigrants in Canada.

"Americans have been complaining about people who have royalty ever since they got rid of their in a French backed coup and replaced him with a corporate oligarchy and Paris Hilton."

Let's see... the last waking dream I had about Paris Hilton (about a fortnight ago, actually), she said to me in no uncertain terms that we (her and I) should remain "best" friends. So as an American monarchial revolutionary, I must uphold her high standards and support whatever "SPECIAL" relationship about which the British fantasize. Baht one thing is certain, I can always find more long memories in Paris than one Lao in Bangkok. Everytime I think of that sexy farang it makes my Yuan.
????????
The Sangha remains the same: Led Zepplin said it best when he said: "Sing out Hare Hare, dance the Hoochie Koo."

The British should be so lucky.

Bah I insulted the king last time they had an article like this.

Bhumibol Adulyadej IS GAY

Any nation that prosecutes freedom of speech and the right to ones own opinion should be instantly classed as third world shithole country.

Am I the only one who finds this odd? I mean come on...

Even if they would say he went there for prostitutes... why would he? There's plenty where he cam from. (both of the things)
