A little ditty video made by Germans is causing Turkey’s leader to attack German citizens. Now, another German spoke up and said Turkey shouldn’t be allowed to do this and…is also being threatened with prison time!
Jan Böhmermann, one of Germany’s most successful young comedians, faces up to five years in prison over a poem in which he referred to Mr Erdogan as a “goat-f*****” and described him as watching child pornography.
Insulting a foreign head of state is illegal under German law, but a prosecution can only take place if a foreign government requests it.
Germans have no freedom of speech. Any dictator on earth can put a German in prison if they say rude things about these creeps.
Any prosecution also requires the express authorisation of the German government — leaving Mrs Merkel in a difficult position…
Turkey was previously thought to be prepared to let the matter lie after Mrs Merkel personally intervened with a phone call to Ahmet Davutoglu, the Turkish prime minister, and issued a public condemnation of the poem…
He (the rude German poet) has defended his poem as a satirical response after Turkey summoned the German ambassador to complain about a song mocking Mr Erdogan that was aired on German television.
It all began with this: WATCH: The video Turkey wants banned from Germany – The Local
Germany’s top diplomat in Ankara has been summoned to the Turkish foreign ministry for a telling-off after public broadcaster NDR mocked President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in a comic song.
The song mocks Erdogan’s thousand-room presidential palace, famously built over a nature reserve bequeathed by modern Turkey’s founding father Mustafa Kemal Ataturk…”A journalist who writes something that doesn’t please Erdogan will already be in prison tomorrow,” the singer intones.
“The time is ripe for his great Ottoman Empire.”
Further footage in the video shows Erdogan shaking hands with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
“Be charming, because he holds you in his hand,” the lyrics continue…
German journalists have been smarting especially at Turkey’s treatment of the press after weekly magazine Der Spiegel announced this month that it had been forced to withdraw its Istanbul correspondent.
“Journalists are being arrested, there are absurd court trials against media representatives, and newsrooms are being placed under state control,” the DJV statement read.
And Turkey wants to be part of the European Union.
