Modern Turkey

Turkey has for years wanted to join the EU, and the EU has (rightly) resisted.

Freedom House lists Turkey as "Partly Free". This puts it ahead of most of the Islamic world, most of which is "Not Free", but puts it out in the cold compared to the EU. Every single country in the EU is "Free". There are no "Partly Free" countries in the EU.





Michael Coren summarises why Turkey does not belong in the EU.

Freedom of religion

  


Free speech




Even in 2011, a simple statement of disbelief in Islam is still illegal in Turkey.
Cartoonist Bahadir Baruter included in this cartoon the statement: "There is no Allah, religion is a lie."
In Sept 2011, Turkey charged him with "insulting the religious values adopted by a part of the population".
Some "secular" state this is!



Turkey fined a local TV station for "blasphemy" in Dec 2012 for transmitting the "Treehouse of Horror XXII" episode of The Simpsons (Oct 2011).
In the story "Dial D for Diddly", Homer says God does not exist, and starts burning Ned's bible, only to be stopped and killed by God himself. However, God reveals that Satan really runs the world. God has to follow his orders. Also, Satan is sleeping with Ned's deceased wife.
Above, Satan orders God to get him a coffee.
Such comedy is illegal in "secular" Turkey.

Erdogan and an Ottoman - Islamist Turkey




Early Islamist speeches made by Erdogan against America, Israel and the West before he got into power.



Erdogan denies both the Armenian genocide and the Darfur genocide.




Insulting Erdogan

It has long been a crime in Turkey to insult the butcher Ataturk. It is now a crime to insult the modern day autocrat Erdogan.

Unbelievably, this protection of the Turkish thug is now being extended to a supposedly free country, Germany.




"Erdowie, Erdowo, Erdogan" (2016) by German political satire show "extra 3".
A satirical video that Turkish strongman Erdogan has "demanded" Germany remove from the Internet.



In response to the "Erdowie, Erdowo, Erdogan" controversy, German comedian Jan Böhmermann read a deliberately offensive poem about Erdogan: "He is the man who beats girls and wears rubber masks while doing so. His favourite thing is to fuck goats and to oppress minorities. To kick Kurds, to hit Christians, and to watch kiddie porn, and even at night, instead of sleeping, he thinks of fellatio with a hundred sheep. Yes Erdogan is fully and completely, a president with a small dick." See text.
