    Vigilante facebook page shames, threatens to shoot ‘shit tourists’

    PHUKET — A Facebook page with more than half a million followers threatened to harm “shit tourists” who venture outside on Phuket island during the coronavirus outbreak.
    In a series of posts starting Monday, Spotlight Thailand published photos of tourists partying and sightseeing Phuket to shame them, and suggested to its followers that they should shoot at any tourists flouting the social distancing measure with slingshots.
    “Get out from my country of you can not stay home,” one post says in broken English, accompanied by the page admins holding slingshots. “Shit tourist.”
    In response, many people posted photos of themselves with slingshots in the comments section.



    Another post, this time showing a group of foreigners at Patong Beach, goes with the caption, “They’re at Patong almost every day. When will they stop? We’re going to starve to death,” then in English, “When I see you again it become to big problem for you #shit tourist get out of my country.”

    Yet another post shows foreigners driving around in an orange jeep. The post berates the farangs for “still having fun on everyone’s misery,” along with the same English caption as the previous post.

    The posts have been liked in the thousands and shared from 80 to 225 times each. Spotlight Thailand page has a following of more than 597,000.
    Most of the comments condemn Caucasian tourists for coming outside during the outbreak and allegedly putting Thai people at the risk of infection.
    “This makes me pity myself and my eight employees. We’ve been indoors since March 18, none of us going outside except to get supplies for the nine of us at Makro. We run a massage shop at Patong,” user Panisara Kingkaew wrote. “Meanwhile the tourists are having fun.”
    “You guys have a heart filled with bitterness and envy. It must suck to need something that you hate so much (tourists),” commented user Alec Cela.
    The outpouring of hatred and suspicion against Westerners in some parts of Thailand came weeks after the country’s top health official, Anutin Charnvirakul, publicly threatened to kick out “goddamn farangs” for not wearing facemasks.
    Anutin, who heads the Ministry of Public Health, also called Western tourists “dirty” and said they “never showered” in a now-deleted tweet.

    In the tourist areas, they really are a bunch of arrogant, money grabbing cnuts who really really do not want you there when there's no money to be made.

    Not to your face, of course...

    What do they think of the legions of "zero-Baht" tourists that are so prevalent lately?

    Let them have it. Anyone dumb enough to holiday in that shithole probably needs shooting anyway. It would be an act of mercy.

    The sad truth is that Thais who work in parts of Thailand popular with sex tourism have a distorted view on farangs. Let's face it, there are a lot of shower dodging sexpats acting like arseholes everywhere you look in a d around the red light districts.

    Should give you and others an idea of the true feelings that lurk beneath the surface and behind the smiles of many thais.

    It is not until the thai has travelled and lived abroad and experienced the freedoms, opportunities, benefits and advantages of a superior culture that the stultifying paucity of opportunity, the incessant brainwashing, the hatred of individuality and free expression, the need to conform, and the grinding oppression of their own repressive backward culture is revealed to them.

    They call themselves free, but if only they knew.

    It's not just parts of Thailand popular with sex tourism; I've had issues with their attitude from Koh Lipe to Bangkok. As tax said above, it doesn't take much to see their true feelings if you scratch beneath the surface a little.

    Land of Smiles, my arse.

    I suppose you can't help but feel resentful when you see farang dropping more on one round than you earn in several days of crappy hard labour.

    I'm sure there's an element of jealousy in places like Indonesia when they see foreigners splashing the cash, but they don't come across with the same attitude that you see all too often in the Thai tourism industry.

    There is something similar going on in China. A friend posted some nasty stuff that is happening to foreigners as the Chinese think they are all from America and have the virus. Foreigners not allowed into businesses and gyms, etc.

    This virus shows the true colors of people and how scared people are.
