|Obama Proposes Global Law to Insult Thai King|

President Barack Obama contends that all Thai citizens have the inalienable right to insult their king. He’s calling for an international ruling to ban the Thai government from punishing any person who publicly rebukes the Thai monarchy.
The Houston Chronicle reports that, “the United States said Monday it is troubled by recent court rulings in Thailand inconsistent with international standards of freedom of expression.”
The Thai court on November 23 sentenced 61-year-old grandfather Amphon Tangnoppakul to serve 20 years in prison for sending text messages considered offensive to the Thai Queen. He was punished under tough laws that are intended to protect the monarchy and fight computer crimes.
According to the Houston Chronicle, “Thailand is a U.S. treaty ally, and State Department spokeswoman for East Asia, Darragh Paradiso, said the United States has utmost respect for the Thai monarchy. But he said the U.S. is ‘troubled by recent prosecutions and court decisions that are not consistent with international standards of freedom of expression.”
Obama is coordinating with the European Union to enact an international law that permits everyone to insult the Thai monarchy.
