Insulters of Turkish-ness beware

An idea, a potentially stupid one at that, yet one which no one has ever thought of or had the stones to execute: I am going to add a Blogroll to Amerikan Turk which lists all of the blogs out there which habitually "insult Turkishness". Some believe that I am a card-carrying supporter of Article 301....pause...NOT! I will now prove it to you, by gathering all of the toxic waste dump blog sites out there which passionately spew venom, fecal matter and other poisonous tripe towards Turkish people and the Turkish Republic. The size of this list might surprise you, and hopefully give some indication of why it's so important for Turks to be perpetually on their guard against such racism and hatred. Recommendations for inclusion are welcomed.
Right now this is just an idea. I haven't done it yet. Maybe I'll come to my senses and re-consider... but I doubt it.

It's true. Americans are very scared of Turks...and Mexicans. Either. Both. You pick.

It's not Americans who I was referring to.. but you may be on to something.

Maybe we should start an 'Anti-Defamation League' and brand the offenders with the label, "anti-Turkific"

your blog gets good hits and i am not sure giving all the links against tutks in your blog is a good idea, because it will be like a promotion to them. instead maybe you can take excerps, and add your own comments too without giving away the link itself.

Murat Altinbasak said...

metin, you jest of course.

hero, we are fingered every day for censorship, for Article 301, for limiting freedon of speech.. What you suggest is to avoid promotion.. and you're right. But when you shine the spotlight upon cockroaches, they're supposed to disappear. The ones which do not disappear get crushed like a grape. That's my thinking anyway. Lame? Let's see what happens.

ON the other hand if you give these people the merest sniff of the oxygen of publicity you run the risk of fanning the flames......

These so-called minorities stab us in the back. They are the guest in Turkiye and should make peace with Great Turkish nation. NO GENOCIDE!!! We will fight for ideas of Ataturk forever!!!

How ridiculuous. What will it all serve? So, the mighty band of Turkish bloggers could unite and leave hateful messages on those sites? If you weren't aware, I'm almost positive those sites already get daily hits by Turks who have nothing better to do than to swear at Kurds and Armenians. I think it might be a national hobby.

Why stop at websites? Why not point out individuals as well? Perhaps, the American Turks can also make a list of anti-Turks in America and figure out how to take care of that "cockroach problem".

I don't have a website, but if you do intend to carry out the latter idea, I'll be the first to send you my details.

aytac.....and then you wonder why people think we Turks are xenophobic nationalists......you almost sound like Hitler.....

aytaç said...

gulay how can you say you are a Turk!?!?! Should I call you Orhan Pamuk!?!?!?! Please do not be a trater to our GREAT NATION

aytaç said...

to anonymous who cannot have courage to give a name you are a sympathiser with PKK, Armanians, Greeks, and so-called intellectuals against Turks.

Turkiye is coming to great power in the world and you will wish you never spread lies and propaganda against us. You will one day shut your mouth or face a fight.

muratbey you need to do as you said you are going to do and expose these places were the backstabbers make false lies on the internet.

Gulay said...

aytac...grow up.

Murat Altinbasak said...

anonymous: you mis-spelled "Amerikan"..
Swear at Kurds and Armenians? you forgot Greeks.
Newsflash: the cursing is always directed at Turkey, via the three-way-gang-bang. We are perpetually in a defensive posture, for decades.. perhaps centuries.
What purpose will this serve?
How about "awareness" and the encouragement of "dialogue"?

aytaç said...

Yes muratbey, we get atacked by all sides for no reason all the time. Greeks, Armanians, PKK Kurds, Suriani, all bad people used as pawn by so-called civlized EU (maybe USA?) to make lies about Muslims and Ataturk. Turks never did any bad things they say in Anatolia. We live by "Peace at home, Peace in the world" such nice words by Ataturk that all world should have understanding. The Turks hospitable and never atack guests so Armanian, Greeks, bad Kurds are LIARS!!!!

gulay, you are leftist Orhan Pamuk almost. Maybe it is your half Armanian o Greek. You need to grow up and know that only Turks can turst Turks and all others want our great land and to atack us. murat has the right plan. We must fight back to show our mighty and glory of Turkiye do not be a trater. Please read the real hisoty. thank you.

Aytaç,

How are Armenians, Kurds or Greeks defined as "guests" of ours? Do you realize how your own the racism and lack of knowledge of history is making the argument of our critics?

You are the problem we have. We need to look in the mirror.

mehmet, will you say they are not guests in our homeland!?!?! A nation made by Ataturk and our martyrs for invasion!?!?!? Turks are from hitites and sumer and others are visiting our hearth. They were favored nations and then made a backstabbing during time of war and then they had to be kicked out for us to make a nation. They are racist for being enemy of Turks destroying a great empire that only made protection. You also are like Orhan Pamuk, a trater. I hate to say such things but you look yourslef in the mirror, ok?

Gulay said...

murat....i was not a great believer in your support for Article 301 but if it protects free thinkers from idiots like Aytac then I have to reluctantly agree with your position......

I find it utterly myopic and pathetic that you can refer to Turkey's position as a 'defensive' one and refer to Armenian, Kurdish, or Greek 'pressure'/activism as a three way gang bang! The turkish state should only wish to be in so innocent a position. I'd like to put it into more realistic terms, but I'd rather uphold my sense of decorum.

I wonder whether the millions (yeah, millions!) of homeless Kurds who were driven from their homes by the Turkish army, the tens of thousands of Kurds in turkish jails who were tortured would agree with your assessment...Or maybe we should ask the Cypriots and see whether they describe a military coup as a defensive posture. Not to mention all Christians in Turkey....

The tyrant who tortures and oppresses my people is the same tyrant who tucks you into bed at night and sings you lullabies...of course you'd rather go back to sleep. sweet dreams.

Aytac almost seems like a comical figure. One can hardly believe that he exists for real. But i think the truth is much more disturbing. There is only a very thinly veiled line between Aytac and Murat...between Aytac and the average Turk.

I believe that deep inside every Turk (who is happy to call himself a Turk) the slogans repeated by "Aytac" are playing over and over...let's call it a gift of the Kemalist ideology...some have wisely learned to silence them and others -- most others -- are happy to give them free reign.

anonymous...

so brave but at least you could get your facts right, yes Cyprus was divided by a military coup.....by the Greeks I seem to recall, as for the thin line between aytac and Murat you are obviously new to this blog.....check out the history

Gulay, relax and take a pill,lie in a dark room or do me a favor by putting the gun to your head instead of your foot because you represent no version of Turkey that I recognise except for the Nationalist Hitlers who keep prosecuting anyone who dares to contradict views like yours.

What's your fascination with Hitler? Do you bring him up at every argument. Was it a Hitler Nationalist who killed your cat or something.

Think-Speak, and repeat.
