Looks like the coup has failed

No wonder why the Turkish army can’t do anything about ISIS. They suck.

  1. Army might have been playing possum. Looks like Erdogan might have been killed in an explosion upon landing in Istanbul. Army apparently has control of Ankara.

  2. They suck.

    You love that expression don’t you.

    Vulgar and very prole.

    • You could also say, they got schlonged.

  3. It’s too early to declare the coup a failure by speculating on mere Twitter hashtags. There’s extensive gunfire between pro-Erdogan police officers and the military. If the coup failed the guns would have gone silent by now.

  4. At this point I still hold out hope that the coup will succeed, but if it fails it will be because they didn’t kill Erdogan first. You were right.

  5. Coup over. The forces of Reaction have once again crushed the forces of Globalist Liberalism.

    All must get on board with the Reactionary movement or face merciless extermination.

    All hail our hero Erdogan! Savior of the Turkish people!

  6. Erdogan is a much smarter politician than Morsi of Egypt was. He dismantled the military’s power bit by bit over many years. Morsi fecklessly tried to do it all at once and will be executed soon enough.

    Two years ago, Turkey was a lovely country with some real problems, but I bet Erdogan’s upcoming proscriptions will help send it to hell.

  7. The government, air force and public all oppose the coup to some extent. But it’s still too early to say. Coups are usually chaotic. With each side trying to convince everyone they’re in charge. Public perception is half the battle. And it could take a while to figure out who really has the upper hand. Regardless of whether this coup is successful, the situation in the country is obviously deteriorating. So, even if Erdogan manages to hang on for the moment, there could easily be another coup or even a civil war in the future.

    People fail to realize just how resilient civilization is when the foundation is solid or how fragile it is when the foundation is rotten. That’s why I’m always harping on immigration and trade deficits.

  8. I don’t think that’s a fair criticism.

    Erdogan is powerful and has been cognizant of the threat of the military since he stepped into office. He has considerable popular support that he can and has used to batter the military.

    The officers who launched this had to risk probability of success from launching it prematurely vs. waiting too long and the whole thing being leaked and falling apart, which appears to be what happened the last time the generals planned the coup a decade ago.

    The officers who did this have a lot of balls. If it truly does fail, they’ll hang for it. They knew it could fail and that they would hang, and they did it anyway. Give credit where it’s due.

  9. Erdogan had too much time and replaced too many generals for the coup to succeed.

  10. Used to one of the greats … pathetic … Ataturkism kept Constantinople from the Greeks, only to deliver it into the hands of the type of chumps who vote for Erdoğan.

  11. Lion, I know you said recently that you wouldn’t post about Trump so much, but can you post about the Trump-Pence logo that was revealed today and how bad it is? It really does suck as a logo. I don’t know who thought it looked good.


    July 15, 2016 at 11:29 pm

    • The logo is great. It has the Trump T stabbing the cuckservitude spineless Pence P. Showing that Trump has his boot on their necks and will drag them to the White House. Soon he will have his boot on the necks of liberals. A thought that delivers something resembling joy on Christmas morning.

  12. Darn, I’m disappointed. It would have been good to see Erdogan get what he deserves.

    • A couple of thoughts… These days when I see a new item in the news cycle, I ask… What was previously in the news that they are trying to cover up… Nice? Something else? Lends some credence to the idea this may have been an operation long planned by the US for some elaborate foreign policy purpose… Maybe to spite Russia or maybe to help further destabilize the ME. It’s hard to tell clear sides anymore because at first the US helped support the Isis rebels in their infancy, but then went against them. Then Russia joined the fight, but the US doesn’t want to see Russia truly crush Isis. Just what the fuck is going on?

      Is there gun control legislation slowly moving through the senate?

      Will this possible false flag coup (either a US made false flag or power grabbing Erdogran false flag) lead to another refugee crisis, this time from Turkey? There are already tons of upper middle class Turks studying/working in the US. They are sexually aggressive (not rapists but apathetic, consider white women as useful chattel sociopaths) and generally less about fair play than your typical white American it’d be a disaster if these people were granted asylum by the US (not on the magnitude of the migrant crisis but still). Also with Turkey in chaos who is stemming the tide of Kebab from Syria?

      Lastly, Erdogan is scum. He openly threatens the west and the great power of Germany as if this pipsqueek had a leg to stand on. If we had a Donald Trump and Nigel Farage at the helm of every western country (and Russia’s current leadership), we’d have every other civilization barring Japan kissing our boots and sucking our dicks on their hands and knees begging for forgiveness and for more bread crumbs. Instead we suffer the humiliation of threats from these inferior vermin.

      Remember, every nation on earth currently exists at the largess of the United States. Without our trade deficit even the great Japanese would have fallen to a much lower standard of living than today (life would probably be better for the younger generation though seeing as how it is their labor that is being mortgaged in Japan’s crippling national debt). The Chinese economic miracle would collapse as billions of worthless, new rich, “let them eat cake” oligarchs suddenly found their wealth worth 1/20 what it was before (still a lot as they are very good at stealing). Because asset prices would drop so much the US oligarchs would also be no more. The American middle class would suddenly find itself able to afford the means of production again and would swiftly take advantage of this in the new level playing field with local manufacturing enjoying a small Renaissance, but this time with all the glories of 21st century automation (think the local businessman who employs 25-100 workers who make lug nuts or some other out of site out of mind product).

      Donald Trump can’t come soon enough. If only to restore sanity and the respect of the US abroad. So tired of being shit on by these third world pipsqueeks. These people exist because their western masters are benevolent. Can you imagine if the men who conquered South America were in charge? Had our military resources and our arsenals. The entire planet would be terra formed to make way for more productive citizens in a few hours. Instead we have to suffer being led by losers like Jeb! And self serving scum like the Clintons. God help us all.

      • The Turkish educated class are genuinely nice secular people who would fit in well in U.S. society.
