Outrageous Turkish President Brutally Attacks Americans in Washington DC

By Indiana Jones   May 19, 2:00pm   1 link   553 views   19 comments   watch (1)   quote      

Why isn't the Turkish President being publicly denounced for this flagrant, illegal violation of American's rights? Only Senator McCain has spoken out.

New video surfaced on Thursday that shows President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey looking on as armed members of his security team violently charge a group of protesters outside the Turkish ambassador’s residence here.

Poor fucking cops. Having to put down the Turkish suits with diplomatic immunity at the same time keeping the protestors from righteously ripping their faces off.

Yeah, only American police can beat up protesters.

Actually, American police were right in there. On person was arrested for assaulting an American police officer. The video doesn't say if that person was a protester or a security guard, but either way it contradicts your assertion that our government did nothing to protect innocent Americans brutally attacked. If the assaulter was a protester, they weren't innocent. If the assaulter was a guard, then the police did take action against the guard.

Also, American cops can be heard giving orders to protesters to back away.

Finally, there is no reason to believe the Turkish president, however vile he may be, had anything to do with this fight or in any way acted in the fight.

The YouTube video in the original post has a post-vid link claiming that Erdogan ordered the attack. Posting that. I'm still watching it now, so I don't know if it is valid or not.

That's because they watch TV and see what our police get away with routinely

The Turkish suits should be arrested. They were clearly assaulting peacefully protesting old men.

Bullshit.

Trump & Republicans can't protect Americans' Free Speech from Muslims.
American Patriots,
Protest Turkey at their embassy & anywhere they show up in America.
No Aid! Sanction everything Turkey!
Boycott all imported Turkey imports.
Deport these BLASPHEMERS!

Republican will not enforce our Constitution & Bill of Rights.

That was not my assertion. Obviously the cops were trying to help the protestors. What I mean is this action should be publicly denounced by the Trump administration, who had just met with the Turkish president hours before. Or maybe Trump should go to Turkey, bring his own goons and beat the crap out of Turkish citizens.

If you're going to attack someone with diplomatic immunity, you'd better fucking kill them and get away afterwards. Since they can legally kill you and walk due to diplomatic immunity, you best jet stand back if you're not that committed. Protesters were idiots!

Erdogan is a flaming asshole btw! He's a grade A fucktard dictator who we shouldn't do business with at all, but diplomatic concerns take precedence over all I guess.

If the president of the United States were in another country, you can bet your ass he'd have snipers and other soldiers protecting him with highly lethal force. No protester would be allowed to get within 500 feet of him.

I'm sure you are right. The most powerful man on the planet, the President of the USA is always a target. He must be protected.
However, Erdogan was in no danger. The protesters were peaceful. It's the the Turkish suits who should be shot. Ofcourse, if Erdogan was shot, I would be happy as a lottery winner.

Nope. No threat at all. The protesters were not close, nor did they have any weapons. It seemed like Erdogan was enjoying his guards beating up the peaceful protesters.

This link has a video that shows there were only about 15 or so people peacefully protesting.

Sure, because if it's on TV, it's true. They can't lie on TV. Everyone knows that.
