Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan emerged victorious from today’s Turkish national election, despite attempts by the Western media to discredit the conservative Turkish president and support his main opponent, liberal Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu.
As I reported last week, even right-wing conservative Christian media ran hit pieces against Erdoğan and supported Kılıçdaroğlu, despite his liberal pro-LGBT views in a country that is 99% pro- hundred muslim
I find it comical that such “conservative” publications as TownHall and Epoch Times print this view of Erdogan’s opponent, Kemal Kilicdaroglu, as “much more moderate.”
This is just propaganda to say “progressive liberal”. If we were to compare Erdoğan with Kilicdaroglu in their social positions, it would be very similar to comparing former US President Donald Trump with current US President Joe Biden.
One side is supposedly pro-traditional family and “family values,” and the other side is pro-LGBT and non-traditional gender roles.
Erdoğan has even campaigned on these social issues, pointing to the fact that Kiliçdaroglu is pro-LGBT, while most Muslims clearly are not.
Of course, to the conservative Christian right in the US, “conservative” is only conservative if it applies to Christians, but not to other religions. (Full article.)
The reason the Christian Right sided with Biden and the Democrats in trying to affect the Turkish national election is because both sides of the US, both “liberals” and “conservatives” overwhelmingly support the war in Ukraine while demonizing Russia.
Turkey, which is also a member of NATO, has rejected calls for sanctions against neighboring Russia, and unlike most of Europe, they have worked together with Russia to develop nuclear power and energy independence , as most Muslim countries have done. in the Middle East these days as they come together to work with both Russia and China to remove decades of US dominance in the region as the US controls the Middle East’s oil and energy through its military presence for many years.
At the time of writing, more than 64 million people in Turkey, which has a population of about 85 million, had cast their votes and approximately 97% of the ballots had been counted, giving giving Erdoğan a 2.3 million vote lead over his nearest opponent. , the US-backed Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu.
Erdoğan is close to reaching 50% of the popular vote at the moment, which would mean a runoff between him and Kılıçdaroğlu in two weeks.
Meanwhile, unless something happens to Erdogan, he is almost certain to win the run-off election.
A few days before the election, one of the other presidential candidates, Muharrem İnce, withdrew from the race over allegations that a recording had emerged of him in a sex scandal.
İnce claimed the tape was a deep fake, using footage taken from “an Israeli porn site”. (Source.)
Western media sources were quick to predict that İnce’s withdrawal would help Kılıçdaroğlu defeat Erdoğan.
Turkish opposition candidate Muharrem İnce announced on Thursday that he was withdrawing from the presidential race, in a surprise move just three days before the election.
İnce’s withdrawal will benefit main opposition candidate Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, who is currently neck-and-neck with longtime president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in the polls, and could even allow Kılıçdaroğlu to claim victory total in the first round.
İnce, who is currently polling around 2 percent according to POLITICO’s Poll of Polls, has been siphoning votes away from the main opposition candidate, Kılıçdaroğlu, who is backed by a six-party coalition that unites left and right against Erdoğan. (Source.)
If İnce was right to blame this on a smear attack by Israeli and US sources to boost Kılıçdaroğlu’s chances of winning the election, then the plan did not work as Erdoğan was still close to reaching the 50% and could still reach that amount. at the time of writing, as some votes have not yet been tallied.
Today’s election was free of violence and, due to Turkish law, the media were not allowed to report poll results until after 9pm local time.
If there is a runoff in two weeks, Kılıçdaroğlu would have to get around 85% of candidate Sinan Oğan’s 2.8 million votes, as Oğan will not qualify for the runoff.
There is almost a ZERO percent chance of this happening, as Ogan is referred to in the Western media as a “far-right nationalist”.
He is an Azerbaijani Turk who was educated in Russia where he earned a doctorate in International Relations and Political Science ( source ), and while he opposes many of Erdogan’s positions as part of the opposition, he also he is critical of the way the West has supported Ukraine in its war against Russia.
Sinan Ogan, candidate for the Turkish presidency of the Ata alliance, believes that the position of Western countries on the Ukrainian conflict is too one-sided and does not contribute to its stabilization and resolution.
He called for putting out “the fire of conflict” and also condemned Western intervention in regional crises. He spoke about it in an interview with RIA Novosti.
“In general, we do not consider the approach of Western intervention in regional crises to be correct. We have seen what this led to in Iraq. We have seen the supply of arms to the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) from the United States. In this regard, in my opinion, the position of the West on the conflict in Ukraine is too one-sided, as it contributes to instigating the conflict instead of stabilizing it. We all have to put out this fire,” he told the agency. (Source.)
So unless the US or Israel try to topple Erdogan through assassination or kidnapping, Erdogan’s victory seems certain. Erdogan has been democratically re-elected by the people of Turkey several times now.
Erdoğan claimed that the opposition bloc led by his main rival Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu “acted with the motivation of greed and revenge”, after their past defeats.
“We cannot accept this ugliness,” he said, referring to what he called a smear campaign. Without naming names, Erdoğan said it was the same power “that forced Meral Akşener to return to the opposition bloc after his resignation,” which “forced Muharrem Ince to withdraw from the candidacy three days before the elections”.
Erdoğan accused Kılıçdaroğlu of being a “puppet of this power”, which saw him “encouraging Qandil”, referring to the PKK terrorist group’s center in northern Iraq.
He also criticized Kılıçdaroğlu for his claims that Russia interfered in Turkish elections through deep fake content. “It’s a shame. What can you say if I tell you that the United States, Great Britain and Germany are rigging the election? He said.
“They used the same method to take over a political party and used it again, against a name that challenged me in the last election, from their own party,” he said. Erdoğan was referring to the resignation of CHP chairman Deniz Baykal, who resigned after a sex tape scandal blamed on FETÖ. Kılıçdaroğlu succeeded Baykal as CHP leader.
Erdogan also heaped criticism on “the West.”
“We are competing against those who are trying to disrupt the ‘Century of Turkey,'” he said, referring to his ambitious vision of a series of mega-projects and reforms in the centenary of the Republic of Turkey. “Magazines have covers that say ‘Erdoğan must go’.
It’s none of your business. The West cannot decide. It depends on my nation”. (Source.)
