Recep Tayyip Erdogan didnt just win his constitutional referendum he permanently closed a chapter of his countrys modern history... Whether they understood it or not, when Turks voted Yes, they were registering their opposition to the Teşkilât-ı Esasîye Kanunu and the version of modernity that Ataturk imagined and represented. Though the opposition is still disputing the final vote tallies, the Turkish public seems to have given Erdogan and the AKP license to reorganize the Turkish state and in the process raze the values on which it was built.

A nation of fools
I was wondering what all that gibberish meant.
Turkey turns to the dark side Ping.
“The sick man of Europe” has been reborn—and promptly killed himself.
Ah, we all knew it had more than enough folks that could change over and return it to the dark ages.
Sad but true.
Wonder how Putin will react; having a jihadist Turkey is bad for Europe, but it's just as bad for Russia. An Ottoman-Persian axis is bad for both the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea.
Couldn’t care less. Keep them in NATO and submarine them with their own kind at every possible turn.
That upsets all the reasons the Saudis have for trying to turn Syria into multiple States since without Turkey being a NATO member there's no way they'll trust the Turks to not extort ever higher fees from them in return for allowing gas to flow to Europe. They understand the underhanded games the Ukrainians played with the pipeline from Russia through Ukraine to the EU and they're not going to set themselves up for that sort of blackmail.
An Islamist dictatorship voluntarily entered into. Fools.
Oh no, I was just looking at Shoebat.com. This looks like big trouble with the new Ottoman Empire Caliphate.
Breaking News: Erdogan wins Referendum to Make Him The Defacto Dictator (Calipha)

President Tayyip Erdogan celebrated what he said was a clear result in a referendum on Sunday to grant him sweeping new powers...
Tomorrow You Get To Watch The Beast Rising Out Of The Earth With Two Horns Like A Lamb And It Spoke Like A Dragon
By Walid Shoebat (Shoebat Sunday Special)
Sunday, tomorrow, while you remember the resurrection of our Lord, there in Pergamum, the seat of Satan in Asia Minor, satan will attempt to resurrect his wounded beast.
Erdogan of Turkey has been clamoring for years for this day when he finally becomes the Sultan and Caliph and he chose it on April 16th, Resurrection Day, as a symbol of resurrection for on it, we Christians celebrate the resurrection of Christ and for Muslims its the Resurrection of an Empire...
I also read an article that this is the Putinization of Turkey as well; there’s a one man system if ever there is one.
At least it’s a huge blow to the EU since it was a major cause to bring these people in. not that they already aren’t in Germany.
All that is left is to go back to Islamic script.
Next up...he is going to re-instate the death penalty. Saw that on a tweet earlier.
51.5% roughly voted for it, so, so close, the win is questionable at the least.
Now, another tinpot dictator like Russia and North Korea.
Bad news for the Kurds.
And there are millions of Muslims throughout Europe whom their loyalty will be to Erdogan over that of their host countries.
“One man, one vote, one time.”
Or Erdogan: “Islam is the goal. Democracy is like a train. You get off once you reach the destination.” (more or less)
