Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s abusive, bloody rein has been exported to the United States, and it’s alarming on many levels.
On Tuesday, the day Erdogan met with President Trump, pro-Erdogan Turks broke through police barriers outside the Turkish ambassadors residence, ran toward peaceful protesters including Armenians, Greeks and Kurds, and attacked them. Nine peaceful protesters were sent to the hospital. Hurt protesters included elderly adults and women unable to defend themselves.
Videos showed men wearing dark colored suits believed to be Erdogan’s security team hitting, kicking, choking and pushing peaceful protesters.
Most all of us Americans or our ancestors fled to the United States to be free from this type of foreign tyranny and here it is on our shores!
The Turkish government representatives involved in this should be reprimanded, required to pay damages and permanently expelled from our country.
Our American soldiers fought and died for our freedoms. We should never stand down from pro-Erdogan Turkish abuse against our U.S. citizenry. An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us!
