Offended snowflakes on college campuses across America need to read this story. The left’s desire to restrict freedom of speech in the United States has reached a fever pitch. Liberal students are on the front lines of censorship, using violence and threats of alienation against anyone who holds a view that is in opposition to theirs.  For the most part, academia on college campuses are backing up the students and encouraging them to continue with the “resistance”.  This story serves as a brutal example of the slippery slope our nation is on right now, as the left attempts to force group think, while restricting original thought in almost every area of our lives.

Embarrassing footage of Thailand’s king wearing a crop top and showing his tattoos have prompted authorities to threaten action against Facebook.

The video of King Maha Vajiralongkorn strolling around a shopping centre with a woman was widely shared on the social network.

But Thai authorities have threatened to press charges if it is still available at 10am tomorrow.

The video shows the monarch, who came to power last year following the death of his father, with a number of tattoos on his arms, stomach, and back.

Watch:

Under strict lese-majeste laws in Thailand, people can be jailed for up to 15 years for sharing material which is insulting to the monarchy.

The video has been geo-blocked by the social network, but Thai authorities say 131 pages containing the ‘illicit’ video are still available.

Takorn Tantasith, secretary-general of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission said:  ‘If even a single illicit page remains, we will immediately discuss what legal steps to take against Facebook Thailand.’

Last week the Thai Internet Service Provider Association emailed Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg calling for the posts to be blocked, the Bangkok Post reports. –Daily Mail
