Erdoğan Under Fire After Assuring Six-Year-Old Girl That She Can Be Martyred and Covered In Turkish Flag

Screen Shot 2018-02-26 at 11.22.51 PM 1.pngTurkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is reviled throughout the world for his autocratic rule and denial of the most basic civil liberties.  He consolidated power by dismantling secular traditions and interjecting Islamic policies into the government. His latest outrage was caught on tape as he explains to a crying 6-year-old girl that she is expected to die as a martyr and covered with a Turkish flag at her death.  The video below captures Erdoğan’s Islamic extremism and his utter lack of empathy in dealing with the child.

Erdoğan was leading a rally in support of the Turkish operations in Syria when he noticed a 6-year-old girl cadet in the crowd in uniform.  He had the obviously scared girl brought to the stage and then used her as a bizarre prop.  He proclaimed:

“You see we have maroon berets, too. But a maroon beret does not cry. A special command, a colonel, a maroon beret… Wonderful! Her Turkish flag is in her pocket. If she becomes a martyr, [her coffin] will be covered with a flag, God willing. She is ready for everything, is not she?”

In most countries, a leader celebrating the notion of a dead little girl draped in a flag would be the end of his public service. However, Erdoğan has arrested or removed most of the independent journalists in Turkey.  He is now free to engage in this type of creepy exercise.


Erdoğan is infamous for his intolerance for any criticism or opposition.   We previously discussed the arrest of Mehmet Emin Altunses, 16, who allegedly committed the crime of “insulting” Erdoğan. calling people who use birth control “traitors” and saying Muslims discovered America, you are not allowed to be disrespectful or insulting in discussing Erdoğan. Then there was the prosecution of model and former Miss Turkey Merve Buyuksarac, 26, for criticizing Erdogan for quoting a few lines from a poem called the “Master’s Poem” from weekly Turkish satirical magazine Uykusuz. Erdoğan’s totalitarian measures have earned him the nickname “Buyuk Usta” (the Big Master). Even a joking reference to Gollum and Erdoğan is enough to land you in jail today in Turkey.
So now his citizens are expected to watch scenes like this. Only Erdoğan sees a beautiful little girl and fantasize her as a dead martyr covered in the little flag in her pocket.

  1. There’s a “caps lock” feature on keyboards that also can be used to unlock the capitalization of letters.
    Also, it’s better to post a timely reply to a comment rather than wait until days later.
    These are things that are especially important for our new moderater for the comments section to know.
    Also, it’s preferable for the moderator of a site to use his real name. That gives him a degree of legitimacy and authority that an alias like “Ken, jr.” fails to give.

  2. here is the text of the clip. Erdogan is like the VC cadre.

    It’s impossible for words to describe what is necessary to those who do not know what horror means. Horror… Horror has a face… and you must make a friend of horror. Horror and moral terror are your friends. If they are not, then they are enemies to be feared. They are truly enemies! I remember when I was with Special Forces… seems a thousand centuries ago. We went into a camp to inoculate some children. We left the camp after we had inoculated the children for polio, and this old man came running after us and he was crying. He couldn’t see. We went back there, and they had come and hacked off every inoculated arm. There they were in a pile. A pile of little arms. And I remember… I… I… I cried, I wept like some grandmother. I wanted to tear my teeth out; I didn’t know what I wanted to do! And I want to remember it. I never want to forget it… I never want to forget. And then I realized… like I was shot… like I was shot with a diamond… a diamond bullet right through my forehead. And I thought, my God… the genius of that! The genius! The will to do that! Perfect, genuine, complete, crystalline, pure. And then I realized they were stronger than we, because they could stand that these were not monsters, these were men… trained cadres. These men who fought with their hearts, who had families, who had children, who were filled with love… but they had the strength… the strength… to do that. If I had ten divisions of those men, our troubles here would be over very quickly. You have to have men who are moral… and at the same time who are able to utilize their primordial instincts to kill without feeling… without passion… without judgment… without judgment! Because it’s judgment that defeats us.

  3. I don’t like Turks, I don’t like Erdogan….I have no qualms about saying so… unlike some people who may pretend to like them. But I have admiration for their identity as a strong nation….. I see a lot of people have totally misunderstood this video. It is about the collective nation of the Turks and their national resolve. It is about their group identity. These are the people who conquered Byzantium and conquered all the way up to the gates of Vienna, These people are willing to sacrifice for group victory. That is the meaning of this. Go back and watch Col. Kurz’ speech in Apocalypse Now about the VC and see if you can apply that idea to these people.
