    They just don't understand world history like other countries do. I went to Thailand in the military and one of our guys was African American. He was called the N-word several times, but not in a ill way. They just honestly didn't know it was a bad word. Culture is just different there lol.

    Please do not look at us in a pessimistic way! Wearing a T-shirt with Hitler's face doesn't mean that the person has to support the dictator. For some people it may be implied not to forget this person what he has done. Believe me. In the next 50 years, there will be shirt makers of the North Korean leaders in Thailand.

    Wait, I'm from Thailand. I always thought that we know Hitler's history, but it's just something that seems far away that Thais aren't aware about the seriousness of his image.
    To be honest though, I live in Thailand, and I never see those posters and the cartoons being shared around like that at all. That's weird.

      This is a reupload. The description said, "In memory of Rip Taylor, please enjoy this very silly segment from 2015, in which he helped us resolve an intractable problem involving Thailand and Hitler."

      It was more of a tribute video.

    2:33 And to be even more fair, the same could be said about schools in the US teaching their own national history with little or no mention of things like the mormon extermination order from 1838 or the genocide on the native american population starting pretty much the moment Columbus set foot onto american soil and lasting till at least the 1850s.

    Rip Taylor seems really interesting, and really cool, and I really respect that Last Week Tonight reminded people about him like this. A man is not dead while his name is still spoken, as said by Terry Pratchett of course.

    Can you name the atrocities committed by Mao Zedong? You can go on Amazon and buy shirts and posters with his face on them, this isn't really any different. Thais have no clue what Hitler represents, his image is only well known in Thailand because of his association with the Swastika, a symbol the Nazis borrowed from Buddhism.

    To everyone here talking about Che Guevara shirts: just stop. There are 3 problems with the main arguments I'm seeing:
    1. Most people who wear them know exactly who he was and what he did, and wear the shirt because, while most people who wear the shirt are long-haired, pacifist hippies, the famous photo of him that is on it has become a symbol among the left of the fight against the imperialist machine that modern capitalism has become. It's more the ideas the photograph and the man represent. Which I agree is kinda stupid (especially since the shirts are all made in sweatshops and Che himself would probably be outraged that an American company is printing shirts with his face for their own nefarious purposes), but it's not like they're doing it without knowing anything about Che Guevara.
    2. Che is NOT Hitler by any means, and comparing him to Hitler is extremely disingenuous and underhanded. Che was a complicated man and no saint, especially in his personal life, but seriously - look up the people whom he was fighting against. The dictators and regimes he helped to overthrow and fight against were BRUTAL human rights abusers, who ran corrupt, quasi-fascist military juntas. And yes, the tactics he utilized were pretty brutal (but nowhere near the levels of the people he was fighting) as well, but to people who know the full story of his life and who realize that you can't overthrow ruthless dictators non-violently, these actions are nowhere as immoral as they seem by themselves. When you look at the crimes of those he fought against, his actions suddenly seem a LOT more justified. Americans are taught to hate him because he hated America and capitalism. But he hated America because many of the dictators he helped to fight against were installed by the CIA for being friendly to US trade interests - in that they'd allow US fruit companies to buy up sovereign land and basically run slave plantations where they'd hire non-US citizens and treat them like dirt. This was incredibly unpopular locally for obvious reasons, which is why the dictators had to be brutal if they wanted to stay in power. Regardless of the unintended results, the morally detestable means or the Marxism, the thing Che was directly fighting for was sovereignty for Latin America, and freedom and better lives for its people (this is why I think wearing him on shirts is disrespectful, especially since he died a martyr for this cause, but I can't ban or censor shirts), and the areas where he succeeded did noticeably better a lot of people's lives, if only to replace fascist regimes with illiberal democracies that succumbed to corruption - but the instability in these places afterward is not his fault, and even this was still a MAJOR improvement in many people's lives. What he was fighting for was COMPLETELY different from Hitler, who fought for basically the opposite of that for Europe and the world. In fact, Che is featured in, and is the poster man for a video by Simon Whistler called "the top 10 people who did terrible things for good reasons" ( ).
    3. The whole t-shirt argument is textbook whataboutism. Even if you think Che is still evil, or on the same level as Hitler despite what I just told you, we're not talking about that here. We're talking about Thailand and Hitler imagery. You're making the Che shirt argument because you're some conservative who feels like this segment is "singling out" the right in some way, so you think arguing that the left is somehow doing the same thing by wearing Che shirts (which it is ostensibly NOT^^^) somehow either makes wearing Hitler imagery okay, or at the very least cancels out any incrimination of the right. Just stop. This is a childish tactic. Admit that Thais or American conservatives who revere Hitler are wrong and move on. If it's not you wearing a Hitler t-shirt, then why do you care?!

    I have no trouble with this. Exactly how is Thailand causing any harm? They may largely know what he is but the imagery is too strong to consider applying the history beside it. In some way this is good. It's stripping away a lot of the power he and Germany carried over people.

    Whilst this is clearly awful I don't really blame people in Thailand, and other Asian countries, for not knowing who Hitler is, after all how many countries can honestly say they teach the history of foreign countries? I know here in the U.K we were never taught anything about Asian history and America focuses almost exclusively of their own history, despite the fact that there's less than 300 years of it, and don't really learn anything about Europe never mind Asia
    And before people say that World War II effected all countries, keep in mind that Asian countries mostly focus on the parts of the war that effected them, like the fucking Atom Bomb, after all how much does the average westerner know about how WWII effects Asia?

    You shouldn't talk about people in other nations. Because you do not know the basic habits of other people Most Thai people are not interested. Regarding the symbolic promise of Nazi Germany, what kind of meaning it will communicate Just beautiful, eye-catching, that's all. But if you are talking about the evils of the West, the Western nations that attacked the eastern countries like England, France, Spain and others are also evil. Don't think of praising yourself. It looks pathetic.

    Thai people don't hate Hitler like European and Jew. We don't love him too just neutral. Yes we knew he is bad and kill so many people. But who he kill is Jew and westerner. That make he be benefactor for Asians. The war he make in Europe ruin England and France conduce to failure of colonialism.

    Teletubbies were already creepy. I am not surprised there. But tea?

    And to be fair... swastikas and guys with terrible moustaches have been around even before Hitler was born... one of those could have been accidental. Someone just saw a swastika and a guy with a terrible moustache and thought "hmm... those two would pair nicely". The rest of the propaganda stuff would have probably been purposeful though. Especially the teletubbies piece.

    In Thailand, most people do know about Hitler and the Nazi (possibly from both general education, TV shows and films). Hence, there are some occasions whereby, in Thailand, Hitler is used comically and sarcastically to convey tyranny, dictatorship and totalitarianism.
