Angelina Jolie Vs. Thai Government

Angelina Jolie Vs. Thai Government-photo

A Thai government offical has issued a rebuke against world traveler Angelina Jolie and the United Nations for Jolie's recent plea to the Thai government to respect the human rights of Muslim refugees from Myanmar.

Jolie, touring a refugee camp in northern Thailand last week, tried to call attention to the Myanmar's Rohinyga "boat people", according to the Huffington Post.

The Rohinyga, denied citizenship in their native land, have been trying to land their seacraft in Thailand and have been repeatedly denied entry and towed back out to sea by the Thai Navy.

Jolie's comments upset the Thai government, whose official reasoned that Jolie should have concentrated on the refugees whose camp she was touring.

"We probably have to warn UNHCR that they should not have comment on this because it was not the purpose of her visit," Virasakdi Futrakul, permanent secretary of Thailand's foreign ministry, said.

Jolie was visiting the camp in her position of United Nations Goodwill Ambassador.

She should just tell them she has had her likeness carved into a lipstick. That should impress the Thai government enough to heed her wishes.

    Thai govt can’t take any refugee living in Thailand, because Thai govt thinks of its past when Thai were Tai refugees rebelling against Khmer people for freedom at Sukhotei. Thai people can’t claim their land Nanchao back from China, so Thai people asked the Chinese Ming Emperor to help Thai attacking Khmer people at Angkor and that’s a reason Thai govt never allowed the refugees living in Thailand, except living in Thai prison or pay in cash to Thai govt. to have freedom in Thailand. Thai govt had to turn the Rohingya boat people away with guns to get the UN attention, so the UN can bring cash to pay Thailand just like when Thai soldiers killed thousand Khmer refugees at the border in 1979-1980 to get the UN attention. All Thailand need is cash, without cash no one can be survived with Thai soldiers in Thailand. Thai govt should thank to Angelina, because of the Angelina Khmer tattoo made in Thailand that makes Thailand famous for a tattoo place today.

    Thousand Khmer refugees were killed by Thai soldiers without the UN cash in 1979-1980. Even with the UN cash the rest of Khmer refugees were treated very badly by Thai soldiers in the refugee camp. Khmer children were beaten up by Thai soldiers because they played the Thai coins that have the Thai King picture on the coins. Thai were originated Tai people from Nanchao, China. Thai tonal speaking is Tai tonal speaking from China. Thai people were helped by Khmer people when the Mongol invading their land Nanchao. Khmer people taught Tai people of great Khmer civilization since the day Thai people running away from Nanchao. Khmer numerals are written on all Thai currency today to prove that Thai people prefer to have Khmer culture better than their own Tai culture because their Tai root and Tai culture were wiped out by the Mongol in China. When Khmer temple Preah Vihear became a world heritage on July 2008, Thai govt sent Thai soldiers to rob Khmer land and other Khmer temples along the border and claimed belonging to Thailand without shame.

    I cannot see why the Thai government should accept more and more refugees than they should. Jolie or the UN dont pay for their upkeep and why did looslipped Jolie attack Myanmar for their inhumane treatment of their OWN citizens. Instead she opts for Thailand and the Thai government should middlefinger her and the clueless balless UN who employs actresses to do their jobs. The day Jolie gets shot in pieces, I wonder if the UN will upkeep her family. NO, they will just get another sucker to be the play ground bully. Jolie should concentrate on her kids and stay home. She should be taught how to keep her mouth shut and stop shooting off comments re her life and sensitive issues globally. WE ARE NOT INTERESTED IN HER! A learned fool is worse than an ignorant fool.

    Gee, the Thais don't like being called out on their inhumane treatment of the Rohingya? Too bad. After Jolie made her plea to treat all refugees with respect and afford them human rights - that is, doing HER JOB - , the Thai Prime Minister announced he was investigating the Rohingya treatment. They may not like it BUT IT WORKED. Well apparently gatormouth Jolie forgot to speak out for the refugees she was actually there to speak out about. And people that don't know about situations should not speak out without studying first. She may have ended up doing more harm than good. She wants to educate the world, she should start with herself first.

    I commend Angelina for speaking out about what she feels is right. In case you haven't been paying attention, she cares, she genuinely cares, and I for one am glad that she is doing whatever she can to bring awareness and attention to those who really need it. It's much better than being apathetic to the plight of others, so if *you* want to "shut your mouth" go right ahead, but don't expect others to do the same.
