Hilarious Dimwits

This afternoon my friend Tetrapilotomos, looking up from proof-reading the 1,669 pages of his opus magnum 'Pre-Assyrian philately in a Nutshell', murmered: "I am not surprised. Apart from that Fethullah Gülen is a most sinister person, prosecutors by grace of Recep Taqīya ... eh: Tayyip Erdoğan seem to be hilarious dimwits." 

I hardly could believe my ears. "Ahem, isn't RTE the most intelligent person in this universe and all galaxies, yet to discover?"

Silence. Turning a page, Tetrapilotomos murmured: "Next you'll call the poor idiots who voted for him to become their president, Turkey's superbest educated  crème de la crème."

"Uff, do you think they are not?"

Instead of giving an answer, before turning another page, my friend passed me a note with a link and grumbled: "Read this." 

Turkish prosecutors have demanded 3,623 aggravated life sentences for the U.S.-based Islamic preacher Fethullah Gülen, as a total of all cases filed against him.

In addition to the aggravated life terms, the prosecutors also sought 2,923 years in jail for Gülen, widely believed to have been behind the failed July 15, 2016 coup attempt, daily Yeni Şafak reported on May 8.

A judicial fine equivalent to 2.2 million days was also imposed on Gülen, who was named as the prime suspect in 22 cases filed across Turkey regarding the thwarted coup that left 249 people killed and 2,193 wounded.

  1. The 'referendum' in Turkey that resulted in Erdogan gaining even more extraordinary powers than he wielded previously was described quite concisely here.
