    Indeed, the world is full of idiots.
    This stuff will only have a negative impact on Thailand when life returns to normal if indeed it does.
    A vast majority of Thais interpret kindness as weekness, they will never learn.
    As the old saying goes,you can take a horse to water...

    Jeez..this is turning into a Thai bashing thread akin to something on TVF.

    Thais have short memories...

    I wouldn't go that far. There are plenty of decent Thais out there - just like any other country.

    Unfortunately, this virus has allowed us to see what many of them really think, especially in the tourist areas (if we didn't already know this before). The minister for health started it and the masses have followed. Hardly surprising.

    You can bet here'll be a full on charm offensive when this episode subsides though.

    ^Yep and plenty of decent Chinese people as well. Can't blame them all for idiocy, often it has been the way they've been taught (government wise/culture).

    Having worked in the tourism sector with various national tourism organisations after my MNC life, that is absolutely true. The Thai government has this odd perception - very unlike others (MY, SG, VN, IN, PH) that it is allowing people to visit them and what an honour that is. This filters down to the population in general, a bit of an extreme case is the dickhead minister and his mask bravado.

    It doesn't stop there, though - having worked for MNCs throughout Asia, Thailand included, there is a special idea that they are doing us a favour by employing them, having a business in Thailand etc...

    Foreigners are blamed for the sex industry, yet they forget that it has been around far longer than the advent of cheap flight beer and bang tourists - for their own population.

    It's very odd

    Imagine if the boot was on the other foot and that you are Somchai and had been indoctrinated since you first heard the daily anthem about Thais being great and never being colonised.

    Remember your first Farang point and shout.

    Imagine witnessing old men with white hair ploughing all your women folk and walking around hand in hand with your daughters as you struggle by working every hour that buddha sends toiling for peanuts and living next to another farang in his mansion in the arse end of nowhere whilst you sleep up a tree.

    Look at that dirty albino monkey down there with no face mask.. and aim

    As a wise old hand once said to me, it wouldn't be a night out for many a Thai man if the evening didn't end in a fishbowl.

    Pag and Luigi?

    Khaosod English have now taken down their article and have issued an apology, possibly due to their crazy libel laws.
    Spotlight Thailand's facebook page has now been taken down too after a shitload of Farang complaints and they are now using a Spotlight Ratchada facebook page.

    They call themselves free, but if only they knew.
    There's a certain amount of delicious irony in racists complaining about racism.

    Quite right too. Ironic that these few, I guess they are few, choose a free Western resource to tout their racial intolerance.

    If Pang is happy doing the dirty with some old white guy to get herself a new iPhone rather than doing a real job, then anyone worrying about "their daughters" should take a long hard (fnar fnar) look at their parenting skills.
