Leave it to a Frenchman to wave a white flag 😉

The man is absolutely right,  the video is funny and many Thai would agree. But the (disbanded)  NCPO dinosaurs are not amused so obviously he had to be pressured in taking the video down. He didn't really had much of an option.

 

The country remains in sad shape.

that the song did not incite or cause division in society, things that could make it actionable.

based  on  that  surely  the  entire  govt  need  locking up,  once  again a  quite  pathetic hunting  down  of  anyone or  anything they  dont  like, lets  see  which  idiot  wants  to  bring  the  private  prosecution.

Common sense all round. 

 

Common sense response by the police for simply asking him to take the video down.

 

Can you imagine the negative headlines if he had been arrested or even deported. 

 

Common sense by the guy the for agreeing to remove the video. 

No common sense  more  like, totally unnecessary, BULLYING, waste of Police time, intimidation threats you name it  ALL in there.

Nothing new both malaysia and Singapore have the same laws about shaming online.

Thais are sadly incredibly insecure. If they feel they have lost face, even to a minuscule extent, they’ll push to have you gaoled.

The nearest I can come up with in the other direction was when Smiley Culture came up with this and gave everyone a good laugh 😊

 

The same Smiley Culture, who the police claim, stabbed himself in the chest during a police raid.

How many times have I heard this?  "It's not your country"

We're fooling ourselves if we think because we have a visa, a Thai spouse, own a condo or pay rent that we have the the right to voice our concerns or dislikes.  Bad news... a foreigner will never have that prerogative. We will never be accepted or even adopted into the mainstream. Our role is to live simple and observe.  Sure, we can rattle our cans with our friends, but be careful to control your volume and content. The other phrase often muttered is "go back to your country". Of course, that may not always be an option.  Tread lightly.

What makes you think most Thais don't actually agree with what he said?

They probably do but have learnt it's best not to air your opinion in public if you don't want a visit from someone!

Unfortunately for this guy he might find his next renewal process might have a few more hurdles!

Get real how many of us are going to record and sing anti Junta songs?

Don't make shit like that, especially if you live in Thailand, everyone knows that the general reacts strongly to criticism against him and/or his government!
