The Erdogan poem meets the Streisand effect!
About a year ago, a German tv show aired a video criticizing Turkey’s Human Rights record — Turkish dictator, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, responded demanding the German government to intervene and delete the video.
Two weeks later, German satirist and television presenter Jan Böhmermann made another video, reciting a poem that was deliberately offensive to Erdoğan, who chose to sue Böhmermann.
Although the criminal charges were dropped by the prosecutors, a civil court ruled yesterday, forbidding Böhmermann to repeat most of the poem.
So today, I am reposting Defamation Poem — because I am for free speech, and an important part of free speech is the freedom to criticize, mock and even insult authorities; as it so happens, I am also not subject to or bound by German law, since I have never been to the country —and that wouldn’t even matter, for I would repost it anyway—:
Stupid as fuck, cowardly and uptight,
Is Erdogan, the president,
His gob smells of bad döner,
Even a pig’s fart smells better,
He’s the man who hits girls,
While wearing a rubber mask,
But goat-fucking he likes the best,
And having minorities repressed,
While watching kiddie porn,
And even at night, instead of sleep,
It’s time for fellatio with a hundred sheep,
Yep, Erdogan is definitely
The president with a tiny dick,
Every Turk will tell you all,
The stupid fool has wrinkly balls,
From Ankara to Istanbul,
They all know the man is gay,
Perverted, louse-infested, a zoophile,
Recep Fritzl Priklopil
Head as empty as his balls,
Of every gang-bang party he’s the star,
Till his cock burns when he has a piss,
That’s Recep Erdogan,
The Turkish president.
So, you know… whatever you do, do not share the Erdogan poem!
