Islamist Dictator Erdogan's Security Enforcers Bust Heads of Protestors... On American Soil, In the Nation's Capital


Unacceptable.

This isn't even the first time:

"They think they can engage in the same sort of suppression of protest and free speech that they engage in in Turkey," said one protester. Right, and itís not the first time Erdogan's goon squad has behaved that way. Last year they got frisky with protesters and reporters outside the Brookings Institution, leading the Secret Service to intervene. "This is America!" one agent yelled at one of the thugs.

Consequences must follow, up to and including arrest.

Diplomatic immunity generally only covers specified persons, usually only top officials and top staff. Others have a more limited immunity, if any at all.

Here's the least that can be done: Erdogan's retinues in the future will be denied any sort of immunity whatsoever. If he wants to come, he either comes with thugs subject to arrest and prosecution, or he comes alone.

At a minimum.

Erdogan is making his own play for rightful "Caliph." Don't kid yourselves. He's positioning himself to be the real Caliph of the Caliphate.

Displays of power like this on the soil of the Great Satan will thrill the rootless rowdies who fill the ranks of terrorist organizations.

Letting Erdogan go without consequences will make Trump look perilously weak.

I didn't mortgage my credibility backing a president who lets Islamists bust heads of protesters on American soil itself.
