    Netherlands "capital of fascism"

    Turkey continued its aggressive rhetoric towards the Netherlands by referring to it as the "capital of fascism".

    Strong language? or just politics?

      who can take Turkey seriously with that sort of rhetoric? and it just cheapens what "fascism" means, stopping some foreigners from holding a political rally is hardly fascist. i wonder the response of Erdogan if some foreign politician went to Turkey to address a crowd, reckon it would be more than escorted to the border.

      It is a bit odd. This would be the equivalent of May holding rallies in Turkey in our next general election. I never thought I would hear of the Dutch being accused of fascism.

      The only response available to the Dutch, Erdogan talking of fascism in Europe, well thats novel. I see the French allowed a rally, somewhat smaller, but weak all the same. Interesting to see how many were mobilised for the rally.

      Erdogan's getting a bit worrying these days...It's bad enough with what he has done and is aiming to do with extending his control in Turkey. When he starts trying to extend his influence to Germany and Holland he is showing himself up to be more the fascist.

      If Erdogan continues as he is, then the world will soon have another bona fide dictator to contend with.

      Like most dictators, in many ways he is a good leader with a lot of genuine support. However, just like the others, he does not believe in democracy, and that's where the problem lies. Countless people are in jail for speaking up against his government, particularly journalists. Thousands of senior judges have been sacked following the staged coup, almost certainly replaced by others who support him and his ideals. This referendum is all about securing his presidency for many years to come, by increasing his power and influence in Turkish politics... and he will succeed in doing so.

      Worrying times for Turks and worrying for Europe. Democracy for all its faults avoids the otherwise inevitability of civil unrest.

      They did have the largest Nazi party outside of Germany in the 30s and the war years...... but Erdogan is simply stirring rhetoric for the sake of his political future....
