Best Quote of the Day in Germany

Probably the quote of the day, coming via a cop at the pro-Erdogan demonstration in Koln and listed on Focus:

"I can not understand this. The Turks in Germany using all of their democratic rights in favor of an autocrat to demonstrate.....who wants to abolish democracy in their homeland. "

Absolutely on the mark, and it makes no sense.  You would think after going through x-number of years of school and getting a decent introduction to the values of a democracy.....they'd ask some really stupid questions of the Turkish government, but instead are wasting a Sunday afternoon protesting in favor of demolishing democracy in Turkey.
