Just Like Back Home in Turkey

Postby Cat » Fri May 19, 1:58 pm

Turkish President Erdogan's thugs beat the crap out of anti Erdogan protestors outside of the Turkish Embassy the other day and its met with apparent acceptance by the Trump Administration.
Now Erdogan can go home and say "Look, I have western approval for my autocratic dictatorial methods!"

Erdogan sez, go kick some ass and watches with approval just doors down from the White House.....

Where's the ass beatings Cat? Your video shows nothing, more than running away when security did their jobs, which i'm guessing is why the washington post buried any story they'd published pretty deep. Iff'n they covered all the skirmishes that occur in dc, like that one it would be a way thicker paper than the one i get today. Btw the Turkish embassy is across town from the white house, next to a portion of rock creek park, in the 2500 block of massachusetts avenue.

Must be awesome to lay down some shoe leather to facial tissue and then walk free with diplomatic immunity.

As autocrats go, Trump seems insecure when you look past the bluster, and perhaps that explains why he seeks the companionship and support from other autocrats. But it's obvious that real strongman rulers will play Trump for a chump and we'll pay the price for it.

"The New York Times reviewed videos and photos to track the actions of 24 men, including armed members of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s security detail, who attacked protesters in Washington last week. Many of the protesters were American citizens.
The men kicked people lying on the ground and put a woman in a chokehold just a mile from the White House. They outnumbered the protesters nearly two to one.
The State Department has condemned the episode, and some American lawmakers have called for the men to be prosecuted. But none have been charged with a crime. Here’s what video of the main actors shows about the identities of the men and the roles they played in the clash."

As Channelites go, you seem incapable of self-restraint.

Of course you are referring to Birdy`s posting of the evil brown eye, whereas I was speaking of the predominately blue one...
