Islamist Regime in Turkey Fires TV Personality for “Unacceptable” Clothing


turkey

The ATV channel is privately owned, but Erdogan’s Islamist regime in Turkey has been consolidating control over the media to a disturbing extent so that there really is nothing shocking about this.

ATV, one of Turkey’s top channels, was bought by a company whose CEO is the son-in-law of Turkish tyrant Erdogan. Which meant it wasn’t too hard for Erdogan’s AKP party to arrange to make an example out of a television presenter.

A Turkish TV presenter has been dismissed after coming under fire from a spokesman for the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) for wearing a low-cut top, which he called “unacceptable”.

AKP spokesperson Hüseyin Çelik criticised the presenter’s costume during the “Veliaht” TV program without naming her, but saying he found the outfit “extreme” because it revealed cleavage.

“We don’t intervene against anyone, but this is too much. It is unacceptable,” he said.

Following Çelik’s remarks, it was revealed that the host in question was Gözde Kansu, and rumours spread that she had been fired.

Gözde Kansu made an easy target because her outfit was risque, but she’s just a test. The AKP has made it clear that its goal is national Hijabization. And probably eventually Burkaization.

Erdogan has pushed alcohol bans, pushed the Hijab and declared that he wants to see a pious generation. So did the Taliban.

    A question of social decorum or an repudiation of women’s rights?

    So much for secular advancement…. but maybe it’s a nation’s right to veer towards religious codes and ethics…?

      Islam is not simply a religion….

      • Cold_Drake_80

        Yes, yes, just like the old right-wing yarn about the “world wide Jewish conspiracy”. Gotta love how the dullards of the right are so bereft of thought they have to use the same template and just change the proper nouns every few decades. Then again maybe your masters hold you such contempt they have become lazy in their bigotry?

          Yeah no one has noticed the systematic persecution of anyone non-muslim practiced in all your islam0fascist sties Hajji. No one has noticed the ethnic cleansing of non muslims from islamic states (hundreds of thousands of Christians in the Mid-East and N. Africa, millions of Sikhs, Hindus, Christians and Buddhists in the Indian sub-continent). You’ll have to come up w/better lies Hajji.

          • Cold_Drake_80

            For starters I’m not a muslim. I know this doesn’t fit your bigoted delusions but who cares suffer with your pathology.
            Religious strife exists throughout the world. All you’re doing in cherry picking that which supports your paranoid delusions.
            In the Bosnian war the Muslim communities got hammered. The various US backed invasions over the past decade or two have targeted and destroyed Muslim states. Of course you spend your free time jerking off to bomber footage so I’m sure you don’t mind that at all.
            Then their are the raving psychopaths of FPM who whine incessantly about how more Muslims should be murdered.

          • defcon 4

            Waaaaaaaaa. Tell it to the million Jews ethnically cleansed through muslime persecution from Yemen, Morocco, Egypt, Syria and Iraq. Tell it to the Zoroastrians of Iran (who are experiencing their own diaspora at the hands of lying Hajjis such as yourself). The charter of Hamas cites an authentic hadith that calls for extermination of Jews. My hatred of muslimes and islam has everything to do w/the actions of muslimes like you throughout the world in the here and now. Eat it.

          • Cold_Drake_80

            Well, this little quote says it all “who are experiencing their own diaspora at the hands of lying Hajjis such as yourself”.
            First you assume I’m Muslim and I’m not. A fact you’ve been told before but I guess its not getting through layers of puss you pass off as a brain.
            Second, you project onto me the abuses of a people you don’t actually care about. You just want to scream and stamp your feet. You’re to much the coward to do it in real life so you go online and shriek away. You’ve lost touch with reality so I want you to immediately start running straight ahead. Hopefully, you’ll see the lights of the oncoming bus as the leering face of Reagan.

            In the Bosnian war the Muslims of Bosnia were the one who started the war when they unilaterally decided to create a separate Muslim Bosnian state when they were only 1/3 of the population.
            And the Muslims won that war in Bosnia, and in Kosovo
            courtesy of the US military power.

            If anybody was hammered in that war it were Serbs, whose bridges, power plants, nursing homes, trains we bombed without mercy and whose people were ethnically cleansed and leaders were hunted and imprisoned.

            If US is fighting on anybody’s behalf, it would be on behalf of Islam.

          • Cold_Drake_80

            You’re an coward and liar. That was instigated by nationalist forces in every group that made up Yugoslavia. Then the US intervened by insisting a referendum be held on dissolving the country. With that foreign backing the Croatians started fighting along with everyone else.
            The worst ethnic cleansing in the entire was by the Croatians against the Serbs. The bombings you pretend to disapprove of were conducted by US forces with a NATO fig leaf.
            Don’t try and tell me what happened you stinking punk. I’ll also bet your marginal opposition to the intervention had to do with the Clinton administration being behind it.
            Gad, you FPM pukes disgust me.
            Now, the other point I raised was the US attacks against various Muslim countries. I noticed you completely ignored them. So answer for those you cringing little coward.

            Go fly a kite you revisionist unhinged moonbat!

          • logdon

            Quite the armchair bombast aren’t you?

            Your unhinged anger betrays an insecurity in your argument and like many of the left all you have left are ad hominem insults.

            And by the way it was our Mr ‘Messiah’ Blair who provoked Clinton into a boots on the ground Balkan campaign via his speech in Chicago.

            This would be the same Mr Blair who lied about a ’45 minute’ capability and Iraqi WMD which propelled our nation into the disastrous debacle of Iraq.

            You can’t have it both ways, sunshine.

          • ObamaYoMoma

            Here, here! Bravo!

          • ObamaYoMoma

            Religious strife exists throughout the world. All you’re doing in cherry picking that which supports your paranoid delusions.

            Yes sir indeed, you are a moonbat of mega proportions. I had you pegged right. Nevertheless, jihad (holy war) in the cause of Allah for the establishment and expansion of Islam to eventually make Islam supreme is just religious strife so says this moonbat.

            And I have to rain on this moonbat’s unhinged parade, but Islam is not even a religion. Instead, it’s a very rabid form of totalitarianism wrapped up in religious garb to dupe the gullible useful idiot infidels, like himself, it fully intends to one day subjugate into Islamic totalitarianism through both violent and non-violent jihad (holy war) and the eventual imposition of Sharia. Hence, please go buy a clue you unhinged moonbat!

            In the Bosnian war the Muslim communities got hammered.

            That is absolutely 100 percent false, as the Bosnian Muslims feigned getting hammered to dupe the USA into fighting their jihad for them. Indeed, the Islamic world has been duping the USA into fighting its jihads for them since the end of Reagan’s term.

            The various US backed invasions over the past decade or two have targeted and destroyed Muslim states.

            Actually, they weren’t really Muslim states, but they are today thanks to gross US incompetence, as the Bush administration appointed a stealth and deceptive jihadist, in Zalmay Khalilzad to first become the US Ambassador to Afghanistan, and then subsequently the US Ambassador to Iraq, whereby he infused both countries respective constitutions with Sharia, as the highest law of the land. By the way, since I know you are a moonbat and thus don’t have a clue, Sharia is Islamic totalitarian law and the only freedom that Sharia allows is the freedom for Muslims to become more devout slaves of Allah. Thus, today both states, Iraq and Afghanistan, are two Islamic Sharia (totalitarian) states thanks to gross incompetence and ignorance of Islam on both sides of the political aisle.

            Nevertheless, your sheer utter ignorance, moonbat, with respect to Islam can only be described as earth shattering. Indeed, Leftism is a severe mental disease as demonstrated so ably by this totally unhinged moonbat.

        • ObamaYoMoma

          Yes, yes, just like the old right-wing yarn about the “world wide Jewish conspiracy”. Gotta love how the dullards of the right are so bereft of thought they have to use the same template and just change the proper nouns every few decades. Then again maybe your masters hold you such contempt they have become lazy in their bigotry?

          What are you? A moonbat! Obviously. I have been on the right all of my life and I have never seen or heard a fellow right-winger being bigoted towards Jews in anyway whatsoever. Now I have seen kooks doing it, like Ron Paul flakes, but those morons aren’t true right-wingers. They are just mislabeled as being right-wingers by the unhinged Left to vilify all right-wingers. Meanwhile, virtually all Leftists are anti-Semitic bigots that swallow Islamic taqiyya like it’s some sort of manna from heaven.

          • Cold_Drake_80

            Look up “no true Scotsman” pinhead. You simply pretend the strong vein of bigotry and antisemitism the runs through the very heart of the right isn’t there. You are a tool, a liar and a coward. In other words a true FPMer.

          • ObamaYoMoma

            Hey moonbat…it’s quite simple. If you want to allege that bigotry and antisemitism runs through the heart of of the right, then put your money where your unhinged mouth is. Otherwise, STFU moonbat!

          • Cold_Drake_80

            Theirs the religious right who support a Jewish state because it will bring about the end of the world. That end will kill nearly every Jew in their vast revenge fantasy.
            The NAZIs were raving anti-Semites and were violent anti-left reactionaries. Those are really the only two examples anyone would need but you’re an FPMer. You’ll lie about the fundies and pretend Hitler was a commie – a fantasy residing solely amongst the most deluded right extremists.

          • ObamaYoMoma

            The NAZIs were raving anti-Semites and were violent anti-left reactionaries

            Give us a break: the Nazis were Nationalist Socialist and Fascist. In other words, they were leftwing reactionaries on steroids. Indeed, you are very obviously more than just a little mentally incompetent, and it’s very hilarious the way the Left tries to portray the Nazis as somehow being right wing and conservative, especially when you consider the fact that everything the Nazis stood for and fought far went totally 100 percent against conservatism and what the right wing stands for, which is a weak and decentralized state as opposed to an all powerful state based on Socialism. As a matter of fact, no wonder you are so unhinged, as you believe the right stands for Nazism. Please seek mental help for your very severe mental disease you unhinged moonbat.

          • Cold_Drake_80

            FPMers have been pushing this lie for so long it’s not even worth correcting anymore. Hitler was a raving anti-Socialist as even a cursory look at his statements and policies. Pin heads like you don’t realize fascism’s roots rest firmly on the right. Extreme nationalism, embracing old prejudices, contempt for intellectuals, militarism, expansionism, etc, etc. You can keep yammering on but you’re still wrong. Granted you’ve chosen to hide in one of the dingiest corners of the internet where such drivel is licked right up.

          • ObamaYoMoma

            Hitler was a raving anti-Socialist as even a cursory look at his statements and policies.

            So that is why Hitler was the head of the National Socialist Party in Germany, because he was an anti-Socialist and not also a fascist as well according to you. Dude whatever it is you are smoking; please send some of it my way.

            Pin heads like you don’t realize fascism’s roots rest firmly on the right.

            The only people that make this unhinged claim are delusional leftists, and the only people that believe that absurd claim is the delusional left. Needless to say, it’s impossible for right-wingers to be fascists, because right-wingers are anti-fascist by definition, since right-wingers only support and believe in smaller, lesser, weaker, and decentralized governments. Indeed, right-wingers as opposed to the Left believe in individual liberty, while leftwing fascist like you moonbats believe in the power of the almighty state. Indeed, that’s what’s behind the Left’s infinite war against Christianity; it’s to eradicate it to replace it with worship of the state instead, i.e., fascism. That you would be unhinged enough to believe such absurd garbage that falsely brands right-wingers as being fascists is a strong measure of how incredibly narrow-minded and mentally deficient you are. Like I said, seek mental help for your very severe issues with mental disease.

          • Cold_Drake_80

            Well, you managed to write a lot and say nothing.
            I love how you completely ignored all the connections between fascism and the right and just kept yammering on about small government. You do realize military spending IS government spending right? Well then how do you explain away the absurd levels of military spending hard right repubes demand? Oh, I’m sure you’ll yammer on about how they aren’t “real conservatives”. In that case look up “no true Scotsman” and shut your hole.
            You also ignore the extreme nationalism, fondness for bigotry, etc. but that’s no surprise at this point.

            Why are you here unless as a parasite troller?

            Try the Guardian site, you’ll be amongst similar unhinged company albeit with undoubtedly greater intelligence and debating skills.

            Even so, they’ll love you.

            They usually hate Americans but in your case, you could even be their pet Yank.

          • Cold_Drake_80

            How about you actually try and address the points I’ve actually raised? I understand FPM doesn’t encourage anything like integrity but you don’t have to live like an animal.

          • logdon

            There you go again. Just can’t help yourself can you?

          • Cold_Drake_80

            I accept your apology.

  • Veracious_one

    they should fire AKP spokesperson Hüseyin Çelik for being an old fool..

  • john spielman

    Turkey is circling the drain and staring to go down into the sewer of Islam.

    • defcon 4

      “starting”? What do you call the Istanbul Pogrom in the 1950′s? What do you call the invasion, annexation and ethnic cleansing of 40% of the island of Cyprus? What do you call the ongoing denial of the genocide of some 2.5 million Armenian and Assyrian Christians?

    Islamist Regime in Turkey Fires TV Personality for “Unacceptable” Clothing

    I have to rain on this clueless writer’s parade again, but Turkey’s regime does not consist of Islamists, i.e., Muslim extremists. It consist of mainstream orthodox Muslims. When it comes to Islam, there is nothing extreme about Turkey’s regime, as it is as mainstream, conventional, and typical as it gets. Unless the writer in his own mind is somehow conflating and morally equating Islam as being a faith-based “religion of peace” on a par with true faith-based religions in which Islam demonstrably is not. It’s very sad that this writer continues to misrepresent the realities of Islam here on a daily basis.

  • logdon

    And bang goes tourism. Lots of people will lose their income. The economy will tank. Then what? Yet another parasite Muslim state?

    Thank God that France said non to EU admission otherwise eighty million of them would be scrambling for European welfare.

    Our erstwhile David Cameron, of course was all for it.
