It appears the madness is contagious. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, embroiled in an ongoing and huge corruption probe, lashed out at “international conspiracies” in a speech at a rally in Bursa. “We’ll dig up Twitter – all of them – from the roots,” he raged, “they’ll see the power of the Republic of Turkey.” With the looming elections – sure to fair and equitable to all – he warned he would “settle scores” after winning. Indeed…
“We’ll dig up Twitter and so on — all of them — from the roots.”
“When people say, ‘Sir, the international community would say this or that,’ it doesn’t interest me at all,” Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan says today, according to state-run Anatolia news agency.
Erdogan, quoted at a rally in Bursa, also says:
Court decision has been made regarding Twitter, without elaborating on the decision
“International conspiracies are a part of this”
“They’ll see the power of the Republic of Turkey”
