German authorities are investigating comedian Jan Boehmermann for reciting a satire spoofing Turkey’s President Erdogan. They say they are offended by the comedian’s remarks. This once-democratic government is now enforcing the sharia and serving a vicious jihad dictator who has all but destroyed the modern advances Turkey made in the 20th century under Ataturk’s secularism.
Further, the invasion of Germany (and Europe) was made possible by Erdogan — and now Germans can’t criticize him?
Here are some choice quotes from President Erdogan — who is prosecuting him?
—-“The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers…”
—- “Just like Hitler, who sought to establish a race free of all faults, Israel is chasing after the same target.” “They kill women so that they will not give birth to Palestinians; they kill babies so that they won’t grow up; they kill men so they can’t defend their country … They will drown in the blood they shed,” he said.
—-“There is now a menace which is called Twitter,” Erdogan said. “The best examples of lies can be found there. To me, social media is the worst menace to society,” BBC New reported.
—Just a week before he was elected President, he called Erdogan Amberin Zaman, the Turkey correspondent for ‘The Economist’, a “shameless militant woman disguised under the name of a journalist” after she had asked an opposition leader whether “Muslim society is able to question” the authorities. “Know your place,” Erdoğan said. “They gave you a pen and you are writing a column in a newspaper. “And then they invite you to a TV channel owned by Doğan media group and you insult at a society of 99 per cent Muslims,” he said he said according to Today’s Zaman newspaper.
“German comedian Jan Böhmermann could face prison for ‘smear poem’ against Turkish President Erdogan,” By Jess Staufenberg, 7 April 2016:
‘What I’m about to read is not allowed,’ the young comedian says before reading
Jan Bohmermann’s poem was called a “deliberate insult” by Chancellor Angela Merkel
A German comedian could face prosecution in his own country for “insulting” Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Jan Böhmermann, a satirical comedian, is being investigated by German authorities under defamation laws for a poem in which he calls the Turkish premier a “goat f*****” and other insults.
He could face up to five years in prison if Turkey’s foreign ministers, who were reportedly angered by the programme, decide to press charges and he is convicted, according to Der Tagesspiegel.
“Erdogan is definitely a president with a small tail,” says the comedian, in a line where “tail” is understood in German to refer to another part of the male anatomy.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s craziest quotes
The popular young comedian was reportedly trying to outdo the offensiveness of an earlier song insulting Erdogan, which Ankara officially complained about in March.
“What I’m about to read is not allowed. If it were to be read in public – that would be forbidden in Germany,” said Mr Böhmermann before going on to read his “smear poem” on public broadcaster ZDF, according to The Local.
He also said Mr Erdogan “watches child porn while kicking Kurds”, in reference to accusations against the Turkish president that he is persecuting the Kurdish minority in the country.
To avert diplomatic tensions, Angela Merkel personally called Turkish prime minister Ahmet Davutoglu and agreed the poem was a “deliberate insult”.
She has recently helped broker a deal with Mr Erdogan that for every refugee returned from Greece back to Turkey, one will be admitted into the EU from Turkey’s refugee camps.
ZDF removed the programme from its website.
