I do not advocate, uphold or support the far right. In fact, I do not advocate any kind of extremism. However, I do not forget that Erdogan is also an extremist and an autocrat.
And this Erdogan’s Turkey!
Estarei sempre do lado da liberdade de expressão,
desde que aqueles que a expressam
estejam dispostos a aceitar as responsabilidades dessa expressão
I will always be on the side of freedom of speech,
provided that those who express their opinions
are willing to accept the responsibilities of such expression
“At any given moment there is an orthodoxy, a body of ideas which it is assumed that all right-thinking people will accept without question. It is not exactly forbidden to say this, that or the other, but it is ‘not done’ to say it, just as in mid-Victorian times it was ‘not done’ to mention trousers in the presence of a lady. Anyone who challenges the prevailing orthodoxy finds himself silenced with surprising effectiveness. A genuinely unfashionable opinion is almost never given a fair hearing, either in the popular press or in the highbrow periodicals.”
George Orwell, 1945, The Freedom of the Press.
