1, British comedian takes his best shot at Erdogan

(He is still a bit of a moral relativist. But at least he pointed out that the US does not have a law like Germany does, banning criticism of a political figure. I wish he had pointed out that actually, that was the whole point of the 1st amendment and it is why the US  was the greatest country in the world till they started deconstructing that with the sophistry we know as ‘hate speech laws’.)

2. Bundestag president: Erdogan has ‘autocratic ambitions’ for Turkey

The Bundestag president has criticized the Turkish regime’s push to strip legislators of parliamentary immunity. Norbert Lammert told Süddeutsche Zeitung that Turkey’s president has “autocratic ambitions.”

Norbert Lammert, president of the Bundestag, Germany’s lower house of parliament, has accused Recep Tayyip Erdogan (pictured) of harboring “autocratic ambitions.” On Tuesday, a broad majority in Turkey’s parliament supported a constitutional amendment backed by the increasingly powerful president to strip legislators of parliamentary immunity.

Lammert, a member of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU), told the Süddeutsche Zeitung (SZ) that the development continued “a whole series of events with which Turkey is getting farther and farther away from our standards of democracy.”

Kerry revealed that the U.S. Fifth Fleet, whose headquarters are in Bahrain, and other international forces operating in the region had recently intercepted four ships ferrying weapons from Iran to the Houthi rebels in Yemen.2 Kerry asserted, “We will continue to push back against this kind of provocation in the region.”3 Jubeir again slammed Iran’s involvement in Yemen, interference in the affairs of other states in the region, and ongoing attempts to smuggle weapons into these countries.

4. Comedian Böhmermann to appeal against court injunction on Erdogan poem

The German TV host has decided to appeal against a court’s decision to prevent him from reciting a poem critical of Turkish President Erdogan. The verse accuses the leader of bestiality and watching child porn.

Böhmermann’s lawyer Christian Schertz said on Wednesday that the Hamburg court’s decision to put a restriction on the poem was “blatantly wrong” and based on “technical errors.”

Schertz said he would file an appeal against the injunction and even push for a decision from the Constitutional Court. “You can’t cut up a painting and only allow parts of it to be shown,” he said.

If he failed to respect the injunction, Böhmermann would have to pay up to 250,000 euros or spend six months in jail.

  1. Out of curiosity I wonder why John Oliver opts to pronounce Merkel’s and Erdogan’s names the way he does….
    The ‘g’ in Erdogan is pronounced as Air doe juan
    The ‘g’ in Angela Merkel’s name is pronounced with the hard ‘g’

    • This probably isn’t it, but the refrain of the spoof-song was, “Erdowie, Erdowo, Erdogan.”
      Play on words: “Erdowahn” => wahn German for madness, crazy
      ~ Keine Nacht dem Erdowahn~
      ~ Freiheit statt Erdogan ~

      “No power to the Erdomadness –
      Freedom instead of Erdogan”

  2. Anti-Defamation League is at the forefront of these so-called “hate speech laws.” They also are the one’s pushing for anti-militia laws, as well as your standard “gun control” 24/7 whining.

    • Far too many people are no longer taught that the First Amendment was indented to protect offensive political speech and that the Second Amendment was designed to protect both.

      Also not taught is that inalienable rights are not rights given by a government but are rights given by God. This is why the left pushes atheism so hard. If God doesn’t exist that God Given rights don’t either, they can all be taken away from us.

    • Thank you for posting this, there are times when I think Obama has driven all of our friends into becoming enemies. Our time of death hasn’t come yet and we are seeing the patriots line up to fight for freedom.

      What we need to do is to follow the advice of Lt. Colonel Peters, when attacked by Third World Nations go in hard fast and heavy and then go home leaving weaping widows and burning rubble. Repeat as needed until they change their ways. As we discovered after WWII there is nothing like a destroyed enemy country to make the world set up and decide to leave you along.

    • ““Too much peace only leads to war,” a beautiful young Indian lady said to me, once upon a time. “And too much war only leads to peace,” she added.”

      The sweet seduction of innocence by naivety.

      An ugly useless old person said: Too much peace only leads to war, and too much war only leads to peace.” “War by Moderation, Peace by Moderation” said her Placard for Eternity. “Haram, Halal” said another.

      George Orwell predicted governments going to war to preserve a peace at home. A state of emergency to make public surveillance possible and invited.

      All that is being attacked are those who are independent and unpredictable to invest and bank on.

      Inhumanity controlling humanity. The addicted to power over the addicted to escapism. Sadists over Masochists. Jihadists over Submitters. Communists over Socialists.
