After their little hatefest in the Netherlands climaxed with riots, shouts of Allahu Akbar and anti-Semitic slurs, Turkey’s tyrant, an Islamist named Erdogan, who has more political prisoners than research scientists, decided to call the Dutch, Nazis.
Since it’s 2017, that involved lots of Twitter trolling and assorted public tantrums. There’s one problem though. If you had to pick a Nazish dictator, it would be Erdogan.
Let’s consider the Hitler points in Erdogan’s favor.
Islamists, including some of Erdogan’s Muslim Brotherhood pals, are usually big fans of Hitler. Erdogan ought to just go ahead and embrace his Hitler image. He certainly isn’t going to convince anyone outside his mad bigoted Islamist mobs of supporters in Europe, who live off the public dole while cheering the return of the Ottoman Empire, that the liberal governments he hates are Hitler.
There was even the time he modeled his new regime on Hitler.
Turkey’s controversial President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has sparked mockery and condemnation by defending new powers he wants to give himself as being similar to Adolf Hitler’s.
In a statement that surprised even his critics, Mr Erdogan responded to arguments that putting political power in the hands of the presidency would not work in a “unitary state”.
He said there were other examples of its being successful. “There are already examples in the world,” he said.
“You can see it when you look at Hitler’s Germany. There are later examples in various other countries.”
