Since Tumblr is being awfully quiet about this drama going on between Nethelands and Turkey, allow me to shine some light on this rediculous happening.
As some of you may know: dutch elections are coming up, that are currently on the same level of chaos as the american last year.
A few days ago, the turkish minister of foreign business (I’m just literal translating don’t know the english word) wanted to speech in Rotterdam about a referendum in Turkey that will give Erdogan more power, a.k.a. become a dictator.
That visit was supossed to be today but parlement (all parties, left and right) decided to say no to this visit because we are in the middle of campaigning for our own shitshow and don’t want another country meddling with the people that have to vote. Also we don’t support this referendum.
Erdogan got pissed, pulled out some sanctions, and called us nazi’s and facists.
He’s done this to Germany as well for not supporting his plan and in my eyes you’re just being a huge manchild.
Tumblr likes punching nazi’s, Tumblr likes freedom of speech, sexuality and gender. (Things Holland likes too, remember gay marriage in 2001, first of the world, ;) )
I’m sort of freaked out about the situation and the silence around it on the internet. Trump is a big deal, but I can tell you that Erdogan is on the same page.
I justed wanted to inform you on this, do with it whatever you want. I don’t really care anymore.
*buddies, pals, support the turkish protestor as well please. There are some who are pro-Erdogan but I’ve heard of people from Turkey that agree that this whole thing is getting out of hand.
Support them, compliment and praise because that’s how we stay connected and pull ourselves through this!
