Lèse majesté

Australian writer Harry Nicolaides was sentenced on 19 January 2009 to three years in prison for breaking Thailand’s lèse majesté law, which establishes criminal penalties for denigrating Thai King Bhumibol Adulyadej or members of the Thai royal family. Apparently Nicolaides wrote something in a book which less than a dozen people ever purchased which was interpreted as a violation of the law. He pled guilty to avoid a longer sentence.

Bhumibol, usually referred to as “revered” by the Thai people, seems to be in the habit of pardoning foreigners convicted of lèse majesté, as he did in the case a few years back of a Swiss man sentenced to ten years for spray-painting over posters of the King’s face while drunk. Not so lucky, it seems, are native Thais, who for uttering a few words or putting together a series of images or any number of other otherwise innocuous acts can find themselves in prison for three to fifteen years under some of the most horrible conditions imaginable. Hang in there, Harry.

Fuck kings, and fuck Bhumibol. There, I said it. Further, the images here should make me persona non grata in Thailand so long as the idiotic lèse majesté law survives. Placing images of other people above that of the King: verboten. Juxtaposition of King with feet: offensive. Thirteen feet: unlucky.

Now I gotta think up some way to insult Turkishness

    You wanna leave the Turks alone. They are masters of the d-disk operating system, if you get my drift. It’s not worth inflaming them. Seriously.

    The whole lese majeste thing is merely a tool, not of the king, but of the military dictatorship that runs the place. The king disapproves, but he’s got very little real power – they’ll let him pardon foreigners who get caught by the ever-widening net of the law, but when the military goons use it to nab somebody they consider dangerous (to themselves), I imagine they make it quite clear to the king that this guy’s not fit for a pardon.
    That said, I wouldn’t trust a king as far as I could throw him. England’s got the right idea IMO, stuff ’em in a gilded cage, feed ’em regularly, and take ’em out for a parade every now and then so people can point and say “Wow! Just imagine, Billy: people used to let those useless inbred looneys tell them what to do.”

    I say it with you, Mike: Fuck Bhumibol and fuck the entire Thai royal family. Fuck everyone in the Thai government who ever considers enforcing this inane law.

    heh heh heh How about an Insult Thai Officials Photoshop Contest? We can send the lot of them to Thai government offices to judge the winner.

    wow, I’m a platformist anarchist myself, but “Fuck kings, and fuck Bhumibol. There, I said it.” is the most self-congratulatory bullshit I’ve ever read. As if you’re being courageous for saying it, adding “further, the images here should make me persona non grata in Thailand so long as the idiotic lèse majesté law survives.” is just sickening. It’s a disgrace to people that actually have to deal with this kind of persecution.

    Yea, you’re really fucking baddass man, if you ever go to thailand (and you know you won’t) they’ll be really pissed you posted pictures of the king with feet on your blog.

    The military junta and the king that rule thailand have never heard of you, you’ll never be within their reach even if they did, and nothing you’re saying in this article is as edgy or heroic as you seem to think it is.

    You give anarchists a bad name, just another whiny kid making statements in ways he knows will never change anything or provoke any real consequences. Coward, go out and actually do something for the movement.

    fuck you harry! and 7 responders.
    You should mind your own business and your countries.
    Every country has its own law and you all should abide by it. Don’t even think that you the aliens will have any privilege much more than us.

    Fuck you once again

    You mother fucker!
    Don’t you think you deserve a detention? But I do.
    You deserve it because of your bad mouth and our law violation.
    If you want to criticize a person, why not pick one from your own country. Lots of bad things in your country is awaiting for you to dig it out. Don’t be nosy to other’s business.

    @thaiblood: You’re really not up on current events. Nicolaides was pardoned and released just a few weeks after I wrote this, over a year ago.

    Dear friends who support Thai King and Thai people: I will not go for all of the Australians because I know a few Australians who are nice. But these bunch of idiots; their generation probably are prisoners that got deported to this island.

    Seeing this insult to His Majesty does not make me mad.
    It makes me sad.
    But Like His Majesty would do, I forgive you.

    Atleast the King does not kill its citizens, atleast there is a semblance of democracy in Thailand, atleast people love the king, unlike the Chinese dictators.

    King Bhumibol readied himself on the filthy mattress and looked back as if eager to receive all of my 8 inches as soon as possible.
    “Is it going to hurt?” he asked, whimperingly. I assured him that I had done this many times and that his tight, wet asshole would remain in tact after the coming brutal penetration.

    Bhumibol squealed in pleasure as I slid my lubed black cock up his tight, virgin anus. Though small amounts of blood trickled out slowly, he was happier than he had ever been. “FUCK MY SMELLY BITCH THAI ASSHOLE” he screamed vigorously.

    Phumiphol is satan I agree. But worse than him are those country who colonized other country, turn those people into slave, stole their natural resource, precious mineral, gold, jewelry etc.
    Do those people feel any shame of their ancestors?

    Not to mention war lord who has created terrorists, many wars around the world, killed, tortured, injured many millions of innocent people.
