Re: A crime against humanity

A Turkish Khalifa from Ank'ra
Could barely contain his cantanker
When a German's fun poem
And his pig's refusal to blow him
Revealed him as a humourless Wanker

Re: A crime against humanity

A friend's contribution:

President Erdoğan was secretly coprophagous,
Says the epitaph on his sarcophagus:
"The perverted old Turk
Round the palace would lurk,
Stuffing donkey shit down his esophagus."

Re: A crime against humanity

Looks like Erdogan's lawyers will be busy.
This is the front page of yesterdays Dutch newspaper showing an ape crushing free speech.
Edit; The Telegraph is the largest Dutch daily morning newspaper

Re: A crime against humanity

Critics are criticising....and on the other hand EU is giving him everything he is asking for.

He is not stupid, he understood how to deal with them.

Good old CH, you always come through in the end.
Looks like the CHians have told Erdogan to go and jump in regard to a critical post.

Re: A crime against humanity

Meanwhile does the Turkish parliament have a debate weather their Kurdish members should be trialed after Erdogan filed cases against them (despite their immunity):

Re: A crime against humanity

The European commission faces an uphill battle to grant Turkish citizens visa-free travel through most of Europe by the end of June, a crucial element of the EU’s deal with Ankara to curb refugee arrivals.

A related plan to overhaul asylum rules was also running into trouble just hours after it was unveiled on Wednesday, as central European countries denounced the measures as ridiculous and tantamount to blackmail.

Hungary has already rejected the plans, while MEPs vowed to block them unless Turkey stops using anti-terror laws to “silence” journalists.

Re: A crime against humanity

Blackmail? As if they'd ever paid something with their own money. All the countries complaining are net receivers... maybe somebody needs to explain to the right winged populists there that the EU works so slowly that it appears they won last year... but if you want your farmers to continue getting paid subsidies from other countries taxpayer money... you should stop pissing off Mutti. Merkel is like an elephant... and I don't mean her looks.

France is against this plan, UK too....there're bigger fish to get mad at, really. Not to mention that USA is taking only a tiny fraction of refugees, after all their contribution to the ME mess...
Perhaps Mutti should stop inviting refugees to Germany? I think that will function better. Just imagine their frustrations at the thought of having to live somewhere in Pannonia... I don't believe a second they will stay put in Hungary for more than a few months, max. a year. They didn't come for that.

Re: A crime against humanity

Ahmet Davutoglu, Turkey's prime minister, looks set to quit (or be fired) this week because his powers are continually reduced by Erdogan; the leader who does not follow the constitution!

A decision to strip Davutoglu of the power to appoint local AKP leaders, taken by the AK party while the prime minister was overseas negotiating with the EU, removed a key source of influence, leaving him with little control over the rank and file of the party,

Re: A crime against humanity

Erdogans German "media lawyer" has sued the next guy... the court most likely will dismiss the charges, so the lawyer said in an interview he will recommend his client to move the case one.

It must be a lot of work, but on the other hand is this lawyer (http://www.hoecker.eu/prof.dr.ralf-hoecker.html) earning a fortune on the back of a paranoid client...

Well... I think I am overall quite tolerant towards other cultures. I don't care what you wear (although I do not like full veils), don't care what you eat, what god you pray to or generally how you live your life... as long as you are not invading my freedom to do the same. Threatening a restaurant with violence because you cannot tolerate their political statements is crossing this very line. I hope the Cologne police for a change is doing their job and follows up the threats.

Re: A crime against humanity

Title of this thread is "A crime against humanity" and it looks like the Turks have upped the ante.
Reports are coming in that soldiers on the turkish borders are firing live rounds at refugees.
Read for yourselves
https://www.hrw.org
I wonder if the smug "the-balkan-route-is-closed" captains of Europe like their names ties to the closed balkan route now, I mean what did they expect? That the refugees would simply shrug their shoulders and go home?
