Welcome to America. We have freedom of speech, religion, and assembly. We like to mock protesters around here, especially the super whiny kind. But foreigners roughing up our protesters is a big no-no. Outside of the Turkish Embassy, Turkish President Erdogan’s security team got into in with some protesters. By got into it, I mean they violently attacked them.

Supporters of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey, including his government security forces, violently charged a group of protesters outside the Turkish ambassador’s residence here on Tuesday night in what the Metropolitan Police chief characterized as “a brutal attack.”
Eleven people were injured, including a police officer, and nine were taken to a hospital, the police chief, Peter Newsham, said at a news conference on Wednesday.
The State Department condemned the attack as an assault on free speech and warned Turkey that the action would not be tolerated. “We are communicating our concern to the Turkish government in the strongest possible terms,” Heather Nauert, a State Department spokeswoman, said in a statement on Wednesday.
Now, this is above the fold, around the clock news. And rightfully so! Some consistency would be nice by the mainstream media, because not above the fold? Some of these stories:
- Trump Supporters Boycott Oscars, Get Violently Assaulted by Crazed Leftist…
- Obama Breaks Silence as Former President, To Defend Violent Protests…
- Shia LaBeouf Goes Full Crazy, Leads Violent Anti-Trump “Art Project”
- Liberal Protesters Get Violent at DeploraBall. Attack Police, Attendees…
- Mobs of “Tolerant” Leftists Violently Protest Election Outcome…
Though, no one involved just had dinner with Trump. So there’s that.
It’s not the job of foreign agents, who’re supposed to protect their own leader, to practice ninja moves on American citizens. You may be wondering why the change of my tune, since just yesterday I was all but cheering when one American decked a seedy American right in the kisser. WATCH: Antifa Hippy Tries Pushing Trump-Supporter. Gets Decked Right in the Kisser! Twas a different situation. In the Antifa case, a hippy ameba pushed someone he shouldn’t have pushed. That other someone performed a little boxing combo on the hippy’s mushy face. It was glorious and I apologize not at all for taking great delight in watching it. Twice.
What happened in the video above isn’t the same as Prissy Von Numbnuts getting decked. Erdogan’s Turkish guard has no business getting handsy with Americans. It’s the job of American security forces (like the police, just saying) to handle Americans. Police officers were present for the kerfuffle, after all. One was injured. Yet the Turkish security team wasted no time in pummelling American faces. For exercising their First Amendment rights.
Put more simply, fighting with your siblings is fine. But when a bully messes with your sibling…
We can handle our own protesters, Turkey. Leave them alone.
