(When poem mocks Recep Tayyip Erdogan)

Thomas and Heinrich Mann must be rolling in their graves. Here we have a leader from the Pirate Party reading someone else's satirical and highly critical poem about Turkish strongman Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Guess what happens in Angela Merkel's Germany. He has his microphone taken away by cops and is arrested! Watch what happens as this man is taken off to the Prinz Albrechtsrasse.* Gates of Vienna has the video with English sub-titles.

* Prinz Albrechtstrasse:  The street in Berlin where Gestapo hqs was located.

I was surprised at the number of police responding. They must be REALLY worried about this offence.
