Shame on those who in the West divert their sensitivity to the so-called freedoms, rights, and law shown in the debate over gay marriage away from Syrian women, children, and innocents in need of aid," Erdogan said.RT: allegedly quoting from here, which is Turkish media. If Ally is around and would like to translate that would be nice :)
Hammer meet nail! The West loves despicable identity politics. The West employs identity politics relentlessly as a divide to conquer method.
"Earlier this week, Turkey’s president refused to bring his country’s anti-terror laws in line with EU standards, describing Europe lecturing Ankara as a “black comedy,” because it allegedly offers safe haven to terrorist groups’ political wings and refuses to fix its own flawed laws"Turkey's terror laws must not be loosey goosey (careless and imprecise) enough for the EU.
Since the EU has a hand in lots of terror creation.
“European countries continue to be safe havens for the political extensions of terrorist groups. When this is the case, it's a piece of black comedy that the EU criticizes our country over the definition of terrorism,” Erdogan said in Ankara on Tuesday.
In an effort to follow the philosophy that the best offense is a good defense, Erdogan said it is Europe that should be amending its laws"
“First of all, we expect EU countries to fix their own laws that support terrorism,” Erdogan said, calling on the EU to answer why it allowed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) activists to set up tents in front of the European Parliament in March"
Erdogan called out the EU to fix their own laws that actually support terrorism! Which of course they do. That's why the EU allowed an EU/US recognized terror group to set up tents in the global terror capital- Brussels. Home of NATO. The global terror army.
Flashback: Washington Post Obfuscates, GREATLY, on Erdogans's Brussels "warning"
"Critics believe Ankara's ambiguous anti-terror laws are being used to stifle dissent"Canada's laws are used to stifle dissent- Where is the criticism? US laws are used to stifle dissent, where is the western criticism? Oh never mind! EU hypocrisy.
