Claims of voter fraud and other irregularities are tainting today’s critical referendum in Turkey, where voters are deciding whether to approve a massive expansion of presidential powers. The referendum, which will replace the country’s parliamentary system with a more concentrated executive system, could allow for President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to remain in office until 2029.

Shame: EU gives 595 million euros Blackmail Payment to nazi dictator Erdogan

erdogans-blackmail
President Erdogan can at least claim credit for bringing back the terms PURGES and POGROMS into daily use.

refugee EU Turkey dealPurges because he has fired, exiled, murdered, imprisoned or tortured literally hundreds of thousands of his own citizens with little evidence beyond his own stalinist paranoia… see Erdogan vows to punish thought crimes.

And Pogroms because he gained absolute power by whipping up hate against the 18 million Kurdish minority and attacking them, killing thousands, reducing cities like Cizre to rubble  (see POGROM, CURFEW, GENOCIDE IN CIZRE) and invading Iraq and Syria to kill Kurds and ”redeem the Turkish empire”..(see Turkey vows to Destroy inspiring Rojava Revolution. )These  are straightforward nazi tactics.

Using refugees as blackmail is nothing new , nor is profiting by abusing them to work endless hours for hhardly any pay. Not for a politician whose own family controlled the supplies to ISIS and now other jihadi proxies who have caused such immeasurable human suffering.
