A Turkish fascist
Tensions between The Netherlands and Turkey are very high as Turkish presidents calls the Dutch remnants of the nazis. Tensions between Turkey and other European questions are high.
This is of course a deliberate tactic by Turkish president Erdogan. By forcing European countries to take action against Turkish ministers who want to visit those countries to hold campaign meetings, Erdogan wants to prove his citizens that he absolutely needs to win the referendum giving him absolute power.
The fact that politically campaigning outside of Europe is strictly forbidden by Turkish law and is ignored by Erdogan proves, however, that he is a true fascist.
I also wonder. There are tens of thousands of Turkish people living outside Turkey. Part of them publicly support Erdogan. If he is such a good leader to them, why don’t they go and live under his rule, in Turkey? Why do they feel the need to stay in the West European country they live in? Surely they would be far happier living in their beloved Turkey with their beloved ruler? Or are they merely carrying out a long term strategy to slowly but surely take over Europe by spreading their population, much as islam is doing with religion?
I really do wonder…

On 16 April Turkey will hold a referendum. If the voters of ‘yes’ have it, president Erdogan will install a pure presidential regime. This means that he would become both state and government leader. In reality, it means he will become an even bigger fascist than he already is.

Critics say it would concentrate even more power in the hands of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a leader they accuse of authoritarian behavior.

But polls suggest that the Turkish people may have seen the light as 58% may say ‘no’ to their fascist president. In order to turn the tide, the president has decided to ban all instances of the word ‘no’. The oscar nominated movie ‘No’ on the fall of Chilean dictator Pinochet has been removed from Digitürk’s offer. And brochures to promote saying ‘no’ to smoking were also removed.
Let’s hope that the Turkish people will massively say ‘Hayir’ to their fascist president. If not, Turkey would no longer be a democracy, something it barely is now.
