I have friends that supports Erdogan. It's not a problem. He's the problem.
there is no problem with criticism but nobody can lift the slander.
assuming that in EU there is freedom of speech lel
Actu***y it* n** a pro***. T***e ** n* c****r.
You can criticize erdogan when you are with ur friends that dont support erdogan, you cant criticize him on social media
Yes i fear getting arrested so i am trying not to tweet anything suspicious about him xd
you can criticize him with your friends, or with someone else. but criticizing him on social media would cost you a jail, even tho i have friends which support erdogan, most of my friends doesnt support him
> Russia and Putin
> Turkey and Erdogan
Which country more dangerous ?
this country is disgusting. I would rather living in africa than here. i wouldnt even be sad if this country gets nuked
problem is erdogan and he won't go anywhere until he exploits all the Turkey's stock. About fear, you can criticize as terrorist at any time without any proof. Until erdogan supporter realize that they were exploited, nothing will be change ...SADLY
I have no friends who support Erdogan and never will be.
We have fear of being jobless. Arresting is not that common for critizing even for insulting but you can be very possibly jobless or at least they won't let you get what you deserve in terms of working career.
It's depressing sometimes.
Erdogan is a slave of sionist families like all leaders.
i have one in class. hes literally a stupid 0 iq person. he cant even talk fluently.cant explain himselves.
every student on my class knows it. i dont want to live in his rules. his decision makes me that i want to leave my country but i can't he destroys our passport can't even travel any tier1 country without visa.
i hate religions cause of him. (one guy from his group said that if you vote us you will go to heaven what a joke im maddd).
feel terrible ofc what do you except bro
who are the people who actually vote for him? rednecks and low IQers?
You can criticize anyone in Turkey including Erdogan. But i think people on the internet cannot differentiate between insult and criticism. In USA, you can insult leaders all you want but here is not USA.
As of freedom of speech, the main problem is mainstream media. Most tv channels and newspapers are pro-government. There are opposing tv channels as well but only a few.
Fun fact: FOX channel in Turkey is opposition (left), and CNN TURK is pro-government (conservative). It is the opposite of what’s in the US.
what does Erdogan think of esports?
He is always winning elections with %50 but if you ask someone in Turkey, He/She says "I dont support him" xD. He is winning the elections because of non-educated peasants.
No freedom of speech in the rest of EU anyway
Turkey is a good country. And, things are going to be alright.
There is big economical issues that need to be handled. Except that, Its fun and lots of people love living in here.
Erdogan is strong guy. He is always doing his political camping with solid speeches and targetting 70% of citizens. And, because of that, all other 30% citizens hate him. And, these 30% of citizens are thinking like everyone hates him, there is no freedom, sth like that. But, these claims are groundless.
It's simple. If everyone hates him, why is he winning every election?
erdogan's soliders still thinks allah will save them :D but erdogan lose the istanbul. its really good for turkey.
and some people living like a arab cuz ERDOGAN.
there is freedom of speech. thing is you cant insult the president of turkey as written by constitution and you cant propogate terrorist organisims here as there are lots of we are dealing with. you hypocritic shits
"You probably expected a bait thread but i actually wanted to know how you feel living in a country where freedom of speech doesn't exist. Do you ever fear getting arrested when you criticize erdogan? Are you friends with any erdogan supporters? and so on."
this answers are coming from a 30 years old;
yes i expected a bait.
We are fine living in this country, we just dont like the goverment. and yes sadly %50 of turkish population votes for erdogan just because his goverment is MUSLIM. for real... and yes %50 of turkish people does not want to live in this country with this goverment.
we have a freedom of speech, allthought if you talk bad about goverment or criticise goverment so hard then you can say there is no freedom of speech. And obviously, most of time there is not. atleast comparing to other countries there is absolutely no freedom at all...
No I will not get arrested because of some comments but it is still risky. lets say you said something bad about goverment in social media or face to face, that might cost your job. literally.
yes i know some erdogan supporters, i make fun of them they make fun of me. we just dont care. I gave up years ago, they started to criticise again, and hopefully they will give up on him.
I know things look bad from outside and it is really bad but trust me turkish people without goverment is fine. we all fine, the only problem is goverment and goverment only.
turkey is ok turks are ok muslims are not ok.
Since when and why Turkey is part of NATO? Are you Turks okay with that?
Some Turkish friends said when you criticized the government in social media, you arrested. It is not true and they exaggerate the situation. If you don't swear and criticize as a respectful person, they don't do anything. Also it is impossible to arrest everyone who swears you know. The government is not good yeah but if they had let people live their religion in past , Erdogan wouldn't have elected. They arrested Erdogan in the past because he read a poetry. Can you imagine how much impact this to people
western propaganda that Türkiye doesnt have freedom of speech 🤦
1-Everyone that says something against Erdogan doesn't go to jail(It's %45 of the country, jails don't have that much cells). They arrest few journalists, threathen them and release after 2 months.
Freedom of Speech in Turkey is not close to USA but it's not completely opposite. Penalties for "insult" have branches(to president, to Ataturk, to member of a court or to a normal citizen) and that's the problem mostly. Insult to president has much higher penalties than the others and Erdogan uses that for his advantage.
2-I am not scared to speak against Erdogan(I do that a lot on the internet, I didn't got any penalties), Turkey is not that fucked up.
3-I don't have a friend that supports Erdogan but I have lots of relatives who support him. They just think different, we are not enemies.
I used to travel to turkey with my parents back when turkey was a decent country but now pretty much noone travels there because of terrorism/lack of freedom/government issues.
I dont have Erdogan voter friends cause i prefer having friendship with people who can use brain , yes i do fear and i prefer not to criticise him anywhere
Actually Turkey still pretty cool place to live, im living west coast of Turkey i dont have any erdoğan supporter friend. I cant live anywhere else instead of Antalya. I love this city
Turks that dont live in Turkey support him way more than those that actually live in Turkey which I find very strange. At least here in Belgium.
a couple of weeks ago we was have local selections and turkish republican democrat party took 3 major citties (Istanbul,Ankara,Izmır) and Erdogan wanted to recount votes, Erdogan lost again and again, again again and again, and we has fifth recount last week and Erdogan still losts. And he is .. wait why there are cops around my house ?
