I don’t understand it either. Why would the Turkish people vote for something and someone like that? Obviously it seems stupid and it smells like a dictatorship. But apparently 60% of the Turkish people living in Denmark voted yes and therefore favoring Erdogan. But why? I’m really interested to hear about this and need some arguments from the yes-people.
I have seen some comments from the Turkish people in debates and such and the phenomenon seems rather the same as with Trump, Brexit and the whole media skepticism rising in the world; “fake news” etc.. A lot of Turkish people think that the western media is portraying Erdogan in a different (bad) light. Like Trump supporters did with Trump and so on.
I’ve learned something from the US election and Brexit and that is to try and understand what the fuck is going on instead of judging the other side just quickly. Because obviously, to me, the Turkish people should vote no (and by that distancing themself from dictatorship and a step backwards like the other countries in the Middle East). But I would really like to know why they voted the way they did. Do they think that media is corrupt, biased and portraying Erdogan wrong and falsely? And are they maybe, in some degree, right? Or are his supporters just totally 'blind' for every negative story so far about Erdogan?
