NAZI FRIED CHICKEN TAKE AWAY OPENS IN THAILAND – If it wasn’t for the U.S providing a ‘pardon’ for Thailand over the last 5 years then Thailand; you might be surprised to learn, would be listed as the World’s No.1 Human Rights abusers.
Yes, I know what you are thinking; how could this gentle Buddhist country that is dubbed the ‘Land of Smiles’ by the Thai Government have such an appalling record?
It’s called ignorance and when you add to the mix of a nationalistic and narcissistic agenda you end up with a country with a population that is unable or refuses to acknowledge any other human existence outside its borders.
The Thais appear to have an obsession with Adolf Hitler with paraphernalia liberally distributed throughout the country. This really is not overly surprising when it is widely acknowledged that Thais have little or no perception of who Adolf Hitler was or the evil regime he stood for.
For anyone living in the West any form of Nazi symbolism, including the Nazi flag, swastika or images of the fuhrer himself would not be acceptable. However in Thailand they appear quite happy to display Hitler’s image and the swastika is an everyday symbol; but that’s because of its Buddhist ties, not because it is associated with the most evil force to have ever marched across the earth.
How ignorant are the Thais when it comes to the Nazi regime? You only need to look at the new Fried Chicken outlet to fully understand that Thais are not subjected to education that expands their minds beyond their own borders.
I have spoken to a number of ‘foreign’ teachers in order to get a better understanding of the Thai education system. From the information I have gathered it appears that the Thai education systems is little more than a farce and where government provides ‘no-fail’ policies to ensure that all students at all levels, from 1st Grade to University graduates, walk away with certification in an attempt to make the nation look as if it produces very young and bright individuals.
Of course this is the opposite; with a no-fail policy students are not pushed to learn and this was evident in a parade organised by the Dean of one University in Chiang Mai where the student all dressed up in Nazi uniforms in order to honour of their esteemed guest the German Ambassador.
The ramifications are what you would have expected with the German Ambassador and other delegates walking out in disgust. Despite the protest the Dean of the University and the students failed to see what the issue was.
So, if you’re visiting Thailand and you fancy a nice piece of Fried Chicken no doubt you’ll be more than delighted to know that there is a Hitler Fried Chicken outlet available to satisfy your hunger.
