We're going to skip the pleasantries and disclaimers and get to the point and all the disclaimers we need about politics, etc. are at the bottom of the page and on all of our website's pages. We're also going to skip any references that compare governments to Hitler, because we don't do that and don't like others doing it either.
(Our first video was about that.)
Our official-sounding statement is:
We are concerned and deeply saddened that the image of Hitler and a Nazi swastika was featured in a government video meant to extol values to the Thai people. We understand that this image does not represent the beliefs of the vast majority of Thais but its use highlights a lack of understanding of the offense and sorrow that these images causes. Our project will continue to provide resources and outreach for people and educators in order to help provide education and understanding for the people.
And now back to our regular, informal blog voice:
We just can't be fun at all today, sorry. Here's the original video, if the link is broken contact us.
Once again with these Hitler references in Thailand... We continue to do research on why this happens and we have written some of our findings here. One day, we hope to stop dealing with this specific issue and provide resources all about History and further a holistic view of World History and encourage acceptance of others in a globalizing World.
