xanadian: Those protesters are gonna get the works./and I see I'm not the first one in here with a TMBG reference
King Something: //if the best that can be said about this country is "We're not quite a third world hellhole!", then America is a great big #2
Mrtraveler01: You know, we talk about how the US is a 1984 dystopic totalitarian state but it's still pretty decent compared to the stuff compared what's going on in places like Turkey.
Mrtraveler01: Satanic_Hamster: I know there's a few Turkish Farkers on occasion. Anyone see a good explanation on why the PM is being so... Well, douchey? I mean his rhetoric, calling the environmental protesters scum, terrorists, criminal cabal, etc etc.The Colbert Report had someone on from the Brookings Institute who basically said Turkey's PM is a control freak who is trying to shape Turkey into his own image (ie: an Islamic State).That doesn't play well in places like Istanbul.
Tigger: Weaver95: Hmm. I guess the news blackout on this story has been lifted. I'll bet our news channels won't actually cover the protesters as having valid concerns tho. They'll paint them as whiny petulant children or something to that effect.They can't decide if these are grubby hippy rich trust fund ows agitators or brave heroes of democracy fighting against encroaching islamification.They will ultimately side with the government however.

dittybopper: I wonder what the governor of Constantinople thinks of that.
