Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, can’t seem to take the heat from his opponents. In a speech he gave today, June 02, 2013, he said,
Consider the sincerity in these protests.
Social media is full of fabricated news, baseless claims and accusations against me for days…
Therefore we should hang those people to the trees, they [are] accustomed to that.
Those tactless people are twitting and messaging that “we are under violence and dying, police panzers are crushing us”
And many people who share and retweet these are hundreds of fascist only…
For those of you who do not know what a police panzer is, it is a Turkish police vehicle that looks like a bulldozer.
Here is a video of the very “lie” the Prime Minister wants these “fascists” to be hung for:
This is only one example caught on film.
Who knows what else is out there?
The point is, this man is calling for the hanging of people because they are “slandering” his name and government on social media; when all they are doing is reporting the truth.
That sounds more like a dictator, than a prime minister.
More Saddam Hussein, than Margaret Thatcher.
Now people are complaining that their access to social media is limited and their internet doesn’t work that well.
This is major news coming out of Turkey, and yet… nothing much from our main stream media.
Here are more images of the Turkish protests:
(that is a woman the police ganged up on a started beating– 10 or more police against 1)
(Another example of police beating down on people. Notice how they target and beat down a couple women.)
