The hysteria around the lese-majeste law continues at an unabated pace.
The Senate has resolved to set up an extraordinary committee to strictly enforce laws to better protect the monarchy following an increasing number of websites found to be offensive to the royal institution.
The Senate yesterday voted 90 to 17 to set up an extraordinary panel to follow up on the enforcement of laws and articles relating to the protection of the monarchy as proposed by appointed senator Khamnoon Sitthisamarn.
Wait a minute ? 17 have voted against ? That’s lese-majeste ! In a good banana african country like Thailand, an appropriate result should be 100 %. Nothing less. Goddamnit, what are they learning at school ? 😉
The committee, to be headed by national police chief Patcharawat Wongsuwan, will comprise 30 members – 19 senators and 11 outsiders.
Currently, there are over 10,000 websites deemed offensive to the monarchy. The Information and Communication (ICT) Ministry has been able to block only 2,000 sites.
Now it’s 10000. Before it was 400 or 1200.And then 2000. Why not 5 millions ? They are so stupid they couldn’t even count buffaloes in a rice field.
The Justice Ministry will coordinate with the Foreign Ministry to launch a campaign among foreigners to educate them about lese majeste laws.
Justice Minister Pirapan Salirathavibhaga said he would coordinate with the Foreign Ministry to instruct all Thai embassies abroad to launch public relations campaigns about lese majeste laws which impose harsh punishments on those who insult the Thai monarchy. (Bangkok Post)
It’s good to laugh. Can you see the intellectual level of those people ? It’s scary.
Do you imagine …. PR campaigns organized in UK, France, USA, Germany… to explain, calmly, that anybody risks 15 years in jail if he dares to criticize one man… ?
They don’t understand that the more they use like a toy and talk about the lese-majeste law, the more substance they are taking out of it.
They are endangering the monarchy, as an institution, and the King as a person.
Because of them, one day, Rama IX could be remembered as “The King Who Needed A Law To Be Respected”.
