Turkish President Eardogan admires Hiltler's style of government.

"Stranger than fiction" is the heading I would file this one under. Controversial Turkish President Eardogan has publicly come out as admiring the way Germany's most reviled national leader ran the German government in "an efficient, unitary presidential system." Along with being appalled by his pro-fascist and anti-democratic sentiments, one is moved to wonder if the President has anyone at all advising him in regard to the realm of public relations!

A Great Deal Becomes Clear – Russian Foreign Ministry on Erdogan’s Comments

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has commented on Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s words about the efficiency of the German presidential system under the leadership of Adolf Hitler, saying that “a great deal now becomes clear, in fact.”

“Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Germany under the leadership of Adolf Hitler was an example of an efficient presidential system, according to Reuters. A great deal now becomes clear, in fact,” said Maria Zakharova on her page in Facebook

The comment comes after the Turkish media reported on Friday that the Turkish leader had said that Germany under the leadership of Adolf Hitler was an example of a presidential system which was able to maintain the unitary nature of the state.

"Yes, there are no reasons not to have presidential system in an unitary state. There are such examples in the world and there have been such examples in the past. When you look at Hitler's Germany, you will see it," Erdogan told reporters, as quoted by the online news portal T24, when asked if the presidential system was able to maintain the unitary structure of the state.

1. Fascism, it's new again!

Seems to be popping up all over doesn't it? A never ending struggle, yin and yang...hopefully a spiral up and not a circle, or worse, a spiral down.

2. Some very greedy people (many of them in this country) seem to find fascism useful . . .

 

It helps them keep a number of quite profitable little wars going around the World.
