I can't see due to the cropping of the photo, but I have often seen items for sale that feature the murderous, homophobic gangster, Che Guevara right next to Hitler items. Nobody ever seems to care about those items. Selective outrage I guess.

no, hes a fashion icon, and I could accept that with hitler too if people werent actively trying to emulate his bigotry

The swastika is an ancient religious symbol used in Buddhism and appears on many old artifacts.

sure, but not on a red background in the form of a flag

“It is important to remember history, he said.

Can't remember what you never knew, my take

Swastika is older than Buddhism as it is a Hindu symbol. See it all over in Bali. Even saw it once worked into pattern of chimney in house in my hometown, built long before WW2, for what that is worth (not much....).

 Hitler would be very new age.... vegetarian, ecology,  fitness, eastern mysticism...

As distasteful as some these items might be, it is not a police matter unless some specific law is being broken. To be very honest, I see a few far more offensive sights in Pattaya than such stuff on sale. I can just walk past vendors but some things just bump right into me.

Ha-ha .

Ban Hitler photos because he is a bigot , but allow CGV photos because he isnt a bigot and people are not trying to emulate Hitler by banning things and being a bigot.

  Ban photos of Hitler because he tried to ban things and we dont want people trying to ban things again ....................

The swastika symbol in the OP photo specifically represents the design of the Nazi swastika, not Buddhism or Hinduism.

That young guy should be careful as Thailand were part of the Axis powers and by suggesting the goods are offensive he is offending someone else. I don't like much of the stuff i see. Don't like it?  don't buy it.

“For me, it is very very important the police stop this”, Mr Jandaeng said in the video.

Hey Mr Jandaeng : If your Grandparents showed as much resilience and opposition to Hitler as you do, maybe you wouldnt dislike him so much now

Thai people doesn't even know what WW2 was, they don't know anything about European history, so I'm not surprised at all something like this is possible in Thailand.

So the Russians did not use ANY aircraft, ships, tanks, trucks, fuel, food, ammunition etc that were supplied to them FOC and carried on allied ships to Murmansk and other Russian ports in convoys of allied merchant ships escorted by allied warships.

 

I suggest that you remove your head from your nether regions and Google Arctic convoys and see what that will tell you. Researching a topic sometimes helps you from looking foolish.

 

BTW you forgot to mention that it was only the Free French helping the allies and not the French military on the mainland. You also forgot the Polish, Dutch, Belgian, US and Commonwealth troops as well.

 

Stalin DIDN'T just keep his temper and stop at Berlin, He also went further into Germany, Poland Romania, Austria etc Before he WAS stopped by Allied troops.

As a German, I've got to agree with the Frenchman. Thais just don't know much about history and it's scary that the most Nazis these days seem to be in the United States.

The Swastika is actually from Sanscrit which means good fortune or well being. I've seen the Swastika in old Roman buildings in Marocco. Thais just don't know much about history, while certain Americans are well aware of it. 

 

Having Hitler next to Superman and Batman and perhaps Hello Kitty doesn't make Thais to Nazis.
