GLENN: Did you guys follow what happened with Turkey and the Netherlands? I tell you, I was over in --
STU: Oh, yeah.
GLENN: I was over in Thailand, and I was watching the news over there, it's totally different. I mean, the -- American news is just not the same.
PAT: Well, yeah. Because they have the freedom. Government-run news agencies to go ahead and tell the truth.
GLENN: It's not that. The first thing that jumps out at you is they're spoking some stupid English that you don't --
PAT: They're talking gibberish.
GLENN: Speak English, man. How does anybody understand this?
STU: That's deep. That's deep analysis.
GLENN: That's all -- so -- but I was watching it. And they led -- now, this was, what? Two weeks ago. They were leading with what was happening in Turkey and this referendum for Erdogan gaining more power. And there's just this march towards fascism. So Erdogan gone is trying to stir up support back home. And so now he's going on a world tour. And he was in Germany. Not he wasn't. He sent the foreign minister to go speak in Germany to all of the Islamic communities from Turkey that have emigrated up to Turkey and got them all jacked up on basically fascism. He tried to go to the Netherlands, and the Netherlands turned the plane around because they said, "We are not going to allow anybody who is going to try to hype people up on fascism into the Netherlands." And so they turned his plane around.
GLENN: He lands someplace else. Gets into a car. And tries to get across the border. They stop him at the border. He's in a bulletproof car. So he just locks all the doors. And he's like, I'm not getting out. They're like, sir, you got to get out of the car.
I'm not getting out.
And they said, well, if you don't get out, we're just going to tow your car with you in it.
So he got out. They put him on a plane and sent him back to Turkey.
And Erdogan said, try landing some of your Dutch planes. Go ahead. Try and land some of your planes from the Netherlands. Let's see how this is going to work out. So now we have two NATO countries that are at each other's throats
PAT: That does not seem ideal. It really doesn't.
GLENN: That doesn't seem ideal. It really doesn't.
GLENN: Who was it that let Turkey in, in the first place? Was that George Bush?
PAT: Yeah, that's -- that's a sketchy decision. I can't remember how long -- it might have been. It might have been.
