A day after local elections, a mayor-elect from the opposition Felicity Party (SP) was physically assaulted by the former mayor of Diyarbakır’s Çüngüş district, a ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) politician, the T24 news website reported.

SP mayor-elect Ali Suat Akmeşe was injured along with another party member and a policeman. They were airlifted to a hospital in Diyarbakır.

According to a local SP official, the injured party member is in critical condition.

“The AKP chairman [Recep Tayyip Erdoğan], ministers and [AKP ally] Devlet Bahçeli terrorized the society with their political messages and sowed the seeds of anger,” he said.

It is very dangerous to oppose Erdogan the Islamist's political party. Turkey is totally lawless and it is seldom ever prosecuted. Victims deemed terrorist supporters.

Four people were killed on election day during altercations at several polling stations.

The rolling train wreck called Turkey continues to accelerate down the track to chaos.

Are our ComDems cheering this?

Being airlifted to a hospital makes it sound like it was a case of serious attempted murder.

That is what happens when you win an election and you are not a member of AKP.

Say anything critical of Erdoodoo and you wind up in jail for years without real charges. Just because the dictator can put you there. There is no recourse.

And all you get is propaganda in the Turk media. Even the AP

The Latest: Opposition candidate says he won Istanbul

Note the byline, “Istanbul AP” The truth will not be presented in Turkey anywhere. And CNN Turkey is the same way. If you attempt to publish anything critical of Erdoodoo you will go to jail too.

I thought about posting this until I read the full article. Then decide the propaganda content was too high to be credible.

(Now I ask you to consider how close we are to the Deep State doing the same thing in the US? After the Mueller witch hunt and the early morning arrests of 70+ year old men at gunpoint with SWAT Teams. Total ComDem Insanity. They see DJT destroying their beautiful wicked little worlds and will do absolutely anything to stop it.)

Yup.....and nearly all our major media already speaks with one voice. When their words are almost the same one wonders who gives them the the script.

I spent a few weeks in the area of Diyarbakır in the mid-80's. At the time, I was fascinated by the people and history of the area. I don't think I would return given the current conditions. It's a shame.
