Everyone is going full Nazi all over the place!
A front-page caricature went public in a popular Dutch daily De Telegraaf, showing Turkish President Recep Tayip Erdogan as a sinister ape squashing freedom of speech in Europe.
The cartoon illustrates a brawny ape with President Erdogan’s face – turned red and puffy – squashing a slim woman resembling Dutch columnist Ebru Umar.
In the caricature, called “The long arm of Erdogan”, the Turkish president stands on a rock labeled “Apenrots,” Dutch for “ape rocks.” The word is also used to refer to a place in The Hague where the Foreign Ministry’s premises are located.
The revolution is nigh!
