- 4 Months of Terror
- 600 plus people have lost their lives
- 1 Party involved.
The Turkish president has won by a landslide, 49.5% of the population have voted for Adalet ve Kalkinma Partisi (AKP). The last 4 months has seen nothing but blood shed, lives lost and families divided. While all this was happening, the President of Turkey blamed other parties namely HDP, ISIS/DEAS and the PKK. Meanwhile, those with a brain all know that it was neither of them but a fragment of Turkish Government Politics and propaganda.
Lets have a look at what has changed since the last election where it was a hung parliament in July. HDP, the Kurdish Party received 13% of the votes and was for the first time recognised in Turkish parliament with 80 seats, dropping the number of members of parliament for AKP in the July elections. Since then, Recep Tayyip Erdogan has done everything he can to paint an evil picture of HDP and he has definitely done a great job at that. He has used terror, war in the east and propaganda to get the Turkish people to vote for him. He made sure that the PKK and ISIS was a problem that he can only solve. In light of all this, from July to November the number of votes for HDP dropped from 13% to 10%, dropping the number of seats in parliament. The whole purpose of RTE making sure HDP drop in votes so that he can obtain all the seats from HDP in yesterdays election. In doing so, HDP received 10.5% of votes, if they got votes drop below 9.9% then Mr Erdogan gets all the member seats in parliament and can easily make constitutional change without the need of referendum.
Thank goodness for the few people with brains who voted for HDP. By voting for HDP, you prevented AKP from making constitutional change.
I am so infuriated with all the younger generation of Turks. Do you not realise that this man is the reason for your unemployment? Your below award wage? You’re inability to travel? Just because he has built a road doesn’t mean he is a great person. What rights has he given you apart from practicing your religion? Without realising he has handcuffed you and your brain. He owns Atv and Sabah, and shuts down any TV network that speaks against the government. What do you think this is doing to you? This is actually blindfolding you? Preventing you to think outside the box and what are you doing …. voting for this man. We’re all quick to blame America and see the faults in what they do… Why can’t you do the same for your own country, the one you actually reside in. Question everything thats on TV and what you read in the paper. So many journalists have received penalties and jail time for actually doing their job and writing about corruption ordeals that Erdogan was involved in. These are things you cannot actually deny. Whether or not you realise this, this man is preventing you from making your own decisions, your own future, hindering yourself from growing and receding into a more secular, religious denoted lifestyle.
I am lucky I do not live in Turkey and for all the 50% of voters who voted for AKP do. Sooner, rather than later you will put everything together and realise just how fucked up this guy is and just how much of a sheep you all are.
