The last ignominy of Samak : Aung San Suu Kyi is married to a foreigner, so…

It seems that there is no limit with Samak. The Prime Minister (a daily shame for Thailand) continues to speak like a garbage collector.

Wednesday night, he cooked for his good friend, the burmese Prime Minister. Previously, he said that the generals in Burma, who shoot monks like rats, are good… buddhists (read here) and “killings were normal“.

And now, Samak has something to say about Aung San Suu Kyi, the leader of the burmese opposition.


“They don’t want [her] to get involved in politics. The international community might be upset about the idea but I see nothing wrong as the proposed constitution prohibits those who were married to foreigners from politics,” he said, and added “that’s [the nature of a] quasi-democracy”. (Nation)

You have to decipher this stuff : she is married to a foreigner, therefore it’s perfectly normal to put her away, on the side. She stepped out the community. She lost her “burmeseness”

That tells a lot about the mindset of Samak.

Many thai people, who despise Samak, have a nickname for him : pig.

Pig.

I think it suits him perfectly.

    Please do not insult garbage collectors and pigs by comparing them to our Prime Minister.

Thailand Crisis

Coup, Economic slowdown, Terror In the South... The situation is worsening in Thailand. Bumpy road like often before.

But this time, it's different.

The key to understand the present turmoil is the inevitable... succession of King Bhumibol.
