The Erdogan Files: Turkey's push to destroy freedom in Europe

Victor LaszloRebel Commentator

A few of the updates on Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, as he escalates his influence in Europe via migrant-blackmail and intimidation, stifling criticism of himself to the extent he feels possible.

Let's begin in Switzerland.

The Turkish leader officially requested that a poster containing a photo which accuses him of complicity in the death of a teenager be removed from public view within that European nation.

The image can be seen here.

Turkey has demanded that a photograph, blaming the death of a Turkish child on the Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, be removed from an exhibition in Geneva. The demand bears similarities to the prosecution of German satirist Jan Böhmermann.

The Genevan authorities have confirmed that they have received a complaint from the Turkish consulate to Switzerland. Just like Germany, Swiss law contains a clause prohibiting insults towards foreign leaders.

On German TV, a well known German political philosopher, Henryk Broder, points out that the rule mentioned above, and many like it, are never applied to people like George Bush when people accuse him of murdering children and other grotesque and inaccurate slanders.

Today in Los Angeles, Armenians commemorated the 1915 genocide of Christian Armenians in Turkey while agents for the Erdogan government overflew the event with airborne signs which read "Stop Armenian Lies," with a link to a Turkish propaganda website.

Sweden's Armenians are also taking abuse from the Turks:

Sweden May Cut Turkish Association's Funding Following Racist Epithets

On April 9, Barbaros Leylani, then vice president of the Turkish National Association, raised hell with a speech at a demonstration in Stockholm, where he announced his support for Azerbaijan in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. Also, a number of flag-waving members of the Grey Wolves, a Turkish supremacist, far-right and neo-fascist organization, were spotted at the demonstration.

"Death to the Armenian dogs! Death! Death!" Leylani shouted, among other things, according to Göteborgs-Posten.

Not content with having actually carrying out the Armenian genocide, and then denying it, some Turks seem anxious to recreate the conditions to create another one. Sound familiar?

Meanwhile, from one of the most courageous papers on Earth:

Dündar fined for "insulting" Erdoğan

The editor-in-chief of the daily Cumhuriyet, Can Dündar, was fined 28,650 Turkish Liras for “insulting” then-Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, his son Bilal Erdoğan and seven others, a court ruled on April 25. 

The court ruled that Dündar had “insulted public officials” in a series of articles on the Dec. 17-25, 2013 corruption allegations, which President Erdoğan and the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) claim was a plot to overthrow the government. 

“If revealing the truth is a crime, we will keep on committing it,” Dündar wrote on his Twitter account after the trial ended, while he read out his articles as defense, daily Cumhuriyet reported.

And here is a related short video showing some of the extent of Turkish influence in Germany via government funded, (both German and Turkish) mosques, who hire  imams to preach what is likely the Erdogan form of Islam.

One Dutch (I think) cartoonist has responded to the arrest of a Dutch journalist in Turkey a few days ago with the publication of this cartoon.

No knowledge of any European language is required to get the drift of it.

This is in part, an update on this post made here at The Rebel yesterday.

Erdogan is of the devil. He is a Satan worshipper and wants to put everybody under Satan’s law (aka Sharia).

Get the hell out Turkey with the attempts to over take and control Europe through Merkel, the Hitler clone or offspring. WW 2 ended in 1945. Hello? Do you think nobody sees this for what it is? Do you actually think you will run the entire world with the islamic sharia law, the most barbaric system the world has ever seen, hell bent on death to almost everyone on the planet? I don’t think so. There are very many people and organizations bigger than yours right now, who sees through this but have not as of yet come forward that we know of. This preposterous charade is coming close to a sudden abrupt end, forever, in one way or another. As of right now you have enough blood on your hands to be arrested and thrown into prison forever.

I guess we can use Newfoundland as a sort of Ellis Island to process the hundreds of thousands or millions of Christian Germans and Austrians and French fleeing their homelands when the threat of Islam is realized.

Europe can deal with Erdoğan very easily. He is a budding Islamist and is looking to make Turkey such a republic. Take him out. They know his locations. Just put a missile on his ass and blame the Kurds for it. As if the Turks will even care that Erdoğan is gone – they want him gone.

First they play nice with ISIS. Next, they shoot down Russian planes. And now they troll the hell out of Europe.

At this rate, it won’t be long before everybody turns on Turkey. Putin is just waiting for somebody else to fire the first shot.

I was reminded the other day – “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” – Hamlet (1.5.167-8), Hamlet to Horatio

Charles, this video provides the answer about Turkey (approx. 31:21mark of the video).

Funny how the progressive idiots say we should stay out of other countries business , but if some Islamic dictator tells other countries how to conduct themselves they are fine with it?

What the hell does this guy got on all these different countries in Europe? It is making no sense why all these countries are listening too the leader of Turkey. No sense at all. The more I read up on this guy the more I am starting to get concerned.
