Dopes abetting palace propaganda

29 03 2023

Back in January, we wondered why the Bangkok Post was publishing the same story about the ever-so-wonderful-better-than-(almost)-anyone-else Princess Sirivannavari? The repeated story was of indigo dye and the ever-so-grateful locals-unable-to achieve-without-royal-support has gone around at least 3-4 times in our memory and it remains propaganda that induces a bilious response.

Now we know what was going on, with the Bangkok Post revealing that yet another UN official is doing the palace’s propaganda.

From Wikipedia

The whole plan was to make the princess look special (again).

Armida Salsiah Alisjahbana, UN Under-Secretary-General and Executive Secretary of the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (Escap), based in Bangkok was used by the royalist elite in the bureaucracy to boost the princess.

Alisjahbana managed to come up with the ridiculous claim that the communities visited by a UN delegation “are evidence of Thailand’s ongoing commitment to sustainability under the initiative of Her Royal Highness Princess Sirivanna¬≠vari Nariratana Rajakanya.”

As well as being buffalo manure, this is an horrendously demeaning view of local communities. Alisjahbana should be ashamed and the UN is also demeaned (again).
