Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan orders takedown of “humiliating” news reports comparing him to Hitler
The Turkish tyrant ordered Google to delist over 40 URLs including a critical report by The Washington Times, plus an AOL image search for “Adolf Erdoğan,” because they allegedly link to “hurtful, humiliating” images and memes.

The targeted sites had reported about Erdoğan’s recent crackdown on journalists and other critics of the Turkish government, comparing him to Hitler.
During his visit to the White House last week, Erdoğan’s bodyguards brutally attacked a group of anti-Erdoğan protesters. Turkey has demanded that the U.S. apologise for its “aggressive and unprofessional actions” in allowing the protests to continue.
