Will someone be kind enough to tell the Thais that Hilter roasted a few millions jews in the oven?

Being good Buddhists they must not glorify Hitler and his symbol. The Thais are so out of touch with this world.

Along  with  an update  on the  Crusaders  who topped  quite  a few non believers or  just because..

I get it that most Thais buying such stuff aren't exactly clued in. More a fashion thing. Same goes for Chairman Mao, Che Guevara or even Serpico images.

 

But then you have the university students pulling these stunts every few years. Usually scoring some headlines and a media outrage, until the next time. When it comes to these, I see it more as an inane way of trying to express non-conformism, to agitate a bit. Even if they aren't totally clued in, they aren't totally clueless as well.

 

Foreigners wearing Nazi stuff in Thailand...guess it depends. Some might be into it, some may think its just a laugh.

I would like to inform you, that it wasnt a case of just roasting a few Jews, in the gas chambers. It was an agonizing death, where mothers went with their children and had to watch them die.Your flippancy insults me. My mother was a Jewish woman, whose family made it to freedom, when many of her family died.It will never be forgotten, but it seems that it is ok to make fun of it, or treat it so lightly as you do.

When Nat Pks were cheaper and i would be wandering around,you would see that symbol on a lot of 1000 year old stone work.So really Thai reflecting their culture,borrowed from India.Nothing to do with that nasty little man.

 

I wasn't talking about that swastika (of which there are many designs), I was specifically referring to the design used by the National Socialists of Germany ... red, white and black ... the third reich emblem. I've seen a number of young Thais wearing this specific design.

If you see Thais with Nazi fashion, it's probably fashion.

If you see white people with Nazi stuff, they are identifying with Nazism. 

 

The Swastika, the symbol of Nazi Germany, actually means a lucky charm or a symbol of well-being for most of us, when literally translated from its Sanskrit root, comprising su meaning 'good' and asti meaning 'to be'. In other words, well-being. One of the oldest symbols made by humans, it dates back some 6,000 years to rock and cave paintings. Scholars generally agree it originated in India.

Not gonna take that bait dude.

You know what specifically Nazi stuff looks like and can tell it apart from stuff that isn't just like anyone else here. 

Ba-bye.

Not this one again. It`s as Jingthing said; Farlangs that have some kind of swastika symbols on their person, especially tattoos are likely to be neo Nazis..

 

Seems the OP sees a least 1 Nazi a day. Looks like there are more Nazis where he lives then those that escaped to Argentina after the war.

No, the Argentina thing was just a ploy; the Nazis all came to Thailand and took youth medication and run all the bars now.

AlexRich (and some others...), i think they understand too much more than you and your honest believe as i think you don't know nothing about the swastika symbolism

most of people in thailand don't know nothing about ww in europe, but well about buddhism, sangskri, and jainism

enjoy : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swastika

 

And do you think the several Western white looking people he spotted wearing a Swastika or with Nazi style tattoos on display are also into Buddhism, Sangskri and Jainism?

Not only Jewish people, although they suffered diabolically at the hands of the Nazis. One friend in an Italian Jew who escaped to England and worked with the Allies as a multi-lingual interpreter. She lost her entire family to them, parents, siblings, extended family - the whole lot gone.

 

The Nazis also ruthlessly tortured and killed Gypsies, Homosexuals, communists, any who resisted them, prisoners of war, people with disabilities. 

 

To date the most vile and disgusting ideology ever to spring from the minds of man. We even have one poster on TVF who as his avatar adopts the shield badge of the Totenkopf SS regiment. I pm'd him to ask if he actually new what that badge represented? He never replied.

 

I doubt any Western person would not instantly think of Nazis when seeing these "fashion items" or tattoos.

The OP asked if there was a nazi contingent in Thailand, based on public displays he had seen. I think any reasonable observer would have to conclude there's a little nazi in most people in the Kingdom. This is simply based on observable national characteristics - an unquestioned  slavish devotion to "superiors" and their right to privilege, an almost mystical belief in the superiority of the Thai race, culture, values etc not supported by reality, a willingness to believe anything an outwardly superior caste person says, an overly sentimental attraction towards fantasy or magic that defies logic, etc.

The real ace of proofs supporting any theory about Thailand as a fallow field for fascism or a nazi credo would be to discover the existence of a core group of  brutal, immoral underlings who throw themselves into the ruthless, brutal dirty work required to enable an effete group of greedy authorities to enrich themselves at the expense of a generally fearful, submissive lower class. Remember the para-military brown and blackshirts and their love of panoply, bombastic ceremony and  tight uniforms resplendent in and glitter and symbol patches?  Any group like that in Thai society generally regarded as clumsy, incompetent bullying  thugs eager to work over and exploit the populace?

Any other possible comparisons between the Weimar Republic and Thailand's tottering democracy?

Bb, i know that the Jews were not the only ones targeted by the Nazi filth.It was also blacks and as you say, homosexuals, gypsies, comunists, disabled people, an virtually anybody else who did not fit in with the Aryan concept. I didnt point them out, due to the op concentrating on the Jewish race.Please forgive,what you thought was my failure to include the others, ho suffered at the hands of that insidious, crazed, individual.

What really gets me, is when people say, 'yes but you cant blame a country for one man', but they forget, it wasn't only one man,  there were many more who thought like him.:sad:

Go and look up the name Gingrich Yagoda

I took your suggestion which led to several hours of informative reading on Wikipedia, following links to unexpected revelations.

I had never understood the origins of the massive Soviet purges in the 30's.

He was indeed a nasty dude but not any worse than both his predecessors and successors...The scale of the human slaughter in the Soviet Union, perpetrated by the Soviets themselves prior to WW2 is astounding.

Yes, they stay especially at the "Heidelberg" hotel/bar on Nana soi 4. Most of them over 70 years old.

There used to be a German bar and restaurant opposite the old Golden Palace Hotel on Sukhumvit Soi 1, did a mean currywurst. It was the hangout of an old German boy who always wore a French Foreign Legion Para beret (green).
I once chatted to him briefly, he said that he had joined the Foreign Legion as a French POW after the war. I don't know about his political views, although I did get the impression that he rather thought Attila the Hun was a bit soft when it came to social policy!
