Here‘s more proof that it’s not just American schools that are remiss in teaching history.
Kids in Thailand are making Adolf Hitler into a fashion statement.
A local vendor who sells a large variety of Hitler merchandise told the UK Sun:
“It’s not that I like Hitler. But he looks funny and the shirts are very popular with young people.”
Offended visitors make their displeasure known to shopkeepers, but that has not stopped the boom of Hitler merchandise. Sales seem to be increasing along with the product lines.
This is not new. CNNGO reported that the youth of Thailand showed their appreciation for last fall:
Last September in the northern city of Chiang Mai, a group of high school students showed up for sport day in homemade Nazi uniforms, complete with swastika armbands and toy guns. Leading them was a teenage girl dressed in a faux SS uniform with a fake Hitler mustache.
This happened at the Sacred Heart School on something called “Fancy Dress Sport Day.”
