Why?

I think almost every politician that I know anything about is a complete A-hole, and I think it is a positive thing that they get to hear this from the people they are paid to serve.

Maybe 'respecting the position' is an Asian/dictator thing? ...

No what i mean is there are ways in voicing out your point rather than making the person look like a fool in public. So they invited him there to be roasted?

Yeah, in dictatorships the servants demand that they be treated with deference by their pay/masters.

For some reason Asian people seem to be comfortable being led around by the nose in this way.

nah...in a dictatorship this student would have been dead by now with his body never to be found anywhere. they can always protest and go to the streets if they really want to change anything. but i guess we cant expect that to happen here thus, keyboard warriors
