BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:06 A.M.) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced that Europe’s “masquerade ball is over” in a rally in Istanbul on Sunday, hitting out against Germany and Netherlands for banning rallies for a ‘Yes’ vote in Turkey’s upcoming constitutional referendum.

The referendum is to bring greater powers to Turkey’s president.

Erdogan then went onto claim that European states were responsible for the coup attempt that rocked Turkey in the middle of last year.

“The latest things we have experienced in Europe are showing us that the battle against our country and our goal is now in a new stage. Those who tried to come at us with their men, with the terrorists that they support and gave guns to, with the spies they bought with a dollar, are now in the field. My brothers and sisters, the masquerade ball is over,” Erdogan erratically said.

Erdogan then went on a scathing attack on the Netherlands and Germany and accused them of complacently ignoring the massacre in Srebrenia and levelling the government’s as being Nazi.

“They would revive gas chambers and concentration camps, if they weren’t ashamed. Can we forget about Srebrenica, can we forget the ones who killed, martyred eight hundred and thirty four thousand Bosnians in Srebrenica? That is their mentality, that is Dutch mentality. And there are more, that is why they get disturbed when we say fascist. They are disturbed when we say that this is Nazi mentality. And their partners in Europe immediately cover for them. Primarily Merkel, she is covering for them too. You are applying the same mentality in Germany. To whom? To my brothers and sisters in Germany,” Erdogan said.

  1. God forgive the Sultan because he does not know what he does.

    p.s. Because the Germans and Dutch will not forgive. Now the Turks must assimilate. Else we will write ’33, do not buy in Turkish shops.

    • EC is not hot after blood – the papers in Germany speculate what sanctions can achieve. No direct flights for tourism. No customs tariff union for agricultural and textile exports. No EC development aid…

      And how Turkey could retaliate. Buy no spare part for machines and buy new machines in other countries.

      • For sure we’re not hot after blood as we’ve seen so much being spilled but better not push EU too far.
        BTW it may go further for sanctions : cancelling validity of job permits for Turks, so for visas, extraditions etc, closing diplomatic places, banning any imports, declaring -which is not far to happen after several murders performed in the EU-, Turkish MIT a terror org, blocking borders to Turkey, pushing the US into stopping delivering anything military to Ankara, if not, EU banns buying of any US weaponry for domestic purposes which would be a serious loss (and good for our domestic industries BTW), moreover, won’t them and we could easily become MUCH closer to Russia and again, between serious contracting with the EU or Turkey…
        Now if Erdolf really wants to escalate, first de-listing PKK from terror orgs, then imposing a naval blockade and a no fly zone for a beginning… When you know that since the purges Erdog did in the army, Tu-Amy spiraled down from a 1.16:1 kill ratio against PKK to a 1:5, guess what happens if they end vetted to receive Milans, M-PADS etc in numbers… Strategically speaking, there’d just be no better time to attack Turkey than now! Not a serious problem to have Thrace taken and with a no drive zone, “balkanisation” can be very fast… Hope we won’t have to act but… Erdolf is really playing with fire and not only with the EU…

  2. First face the Armenian genocide & then talk to Europeans like that Turk is a Turk cannot be like Europeans. Wake up Turkish intellectuals rise up against ur own enemy new racist & a Nazis erdoganian .go learn your history .educate urself.

  3. Funny fact : this lunatic is vowing to reboot death penalty in Turkey, already practises extrajudicial killings in numbers, while EU banned it and is nowhere near to go back to such practises and even promoting a global ban, now, even Russia has done so (and if there’s a referendum for Russia joining the EU, I vote YES any day, for Turkey, well, we’ll maybe consder this in… 300 years?).
    Now, considring the HUGE responsibility he has about what’s happening into Syria as, without his green light, it wouldn’t have had been possible even to the quarter of the extent

    “And there are more, that is why they get disturbed when we say fascist. They are disturbed when we say that this is Nazi mentality.”
    => So he must like it as he praised Hitler several times!
    The most amusing thing is that Nazis copied a lot from… Ottoman Empire, i.e. having the Jews force to wear a yellow star was an Ottoman idea. Ottomans were, at the time, much more experimented than Nazis, Nazis “just” made Ottoman practises… industrial… And… Don’t Turkish Grey Wolves, a (?) militia (?) that was sent into Syria, practise the Nazi salute? BTW, wasn’t Mehmet Ali Agça a Grey Wolf? You know, the guy that tried to assassinate pope John-Paul II…

    Again, as ANY TIME we have the infamous Muslim Brotherhood (and AKP is one of their numerous offshoots) somewhere, we see their puppets and minions accusing other to do what themselves are doing or intending to, al least dreaming of…
    Are the AKP, Hamas, Shebabs, Talebans, al-Qaeda, even PLO that has strong ties with them, are they presenting themselves as a pure political entity (thus supporting parallel terrorist groups to avoid repression, e.g. in Tunisia) or a violent gang, they are ALL doing it the same way! Bet the next runs of terrorist attacks are for NL and Germany?

    • No. IMHO Turkey will not be especially sanctioned. They will revert like the Brits to 3rd level country state – no custom union etc.. That is deadly for Turk economy. They will have to compete with countries with lower wages.

      Germany will not take away existing working permits. Against our ethics. But the EC law 14 can be cancelled. Turks will lose e.g. Hartz IV (Welfare after out of work for more than a year – that will sent home 23.5% Turkish resident population from Germany).

      => So he must like it as he praised Hitler … The most amusing thing is that Nazis copied a lot from… Ottoman Empire, => All learned from the Sunni Ottoman concept of treatment of dhimmi that dare to fight back. Nolte claims Holocaust idea came from/via Russian communist revolution.

      But it boils down to that all expectationalist cults have these tendencies. For me they are all the same and their bad influence must be resisted.

      Exceptionalist ideas take funny ways and come from unexpected directions. Fascist Rassengesetze, Racial laws, were in details inspired by regulations from the Southern states of the US… ROFL.

      NL and Germany are bad choices. We do not calm down fast – like our frères across the Rhine.
