    America bashing at Esplanade Mall

    By gohmer, Created on: 09/05/2010, Last updated on: 11/06/2011

    » I putting this post up because it is related to international relationships with American citizens living and visiting Thailand. It illustrated to me that little is known about America by most people in Thailand, in fact, I think that few in the world truly understand what America is about and how...

    • sundayjam commented : I still haven't figured out if the T-shirt is offensive to Americans (usa) or everyone else. If an American were to wear it, he could easily be telling the rest of the world to go F themselves. It's not the most offensive t-shirt Thailand has produced. Just go to Khao San Road if you really want to be offended. A Thai buddy of mine showed up in a Mother Mary t-shirt which proclaimed something about virginity and sodomy. I just shook my head and laughed wondering if he truly understood the meaning of it all. The other arguments regarding America's noble or evil purposes are just plain childish. Grow up people. Did anyone happen to mention where this offensive mall is? I still don't know how someone can get on a soapbox, and not mention the specifics about a boycott. Oh, and he'll not win many friends insulting the rest of the world.
