As noted in several recent posts, the Turkish regime under President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is pushing hard in Germany for support among expatriate Turks for the constitutional referendum that would make His Excellency into Il Duce of the Bosphorus.
 
The video below from German TV shows the extent to which supposedly independent Turkish cultural organizations are campaigning for Mr. Erdogan in Germany. As summarized by PolitikStube:
 
Openly campaigning for Turkish constitutional referendum in German documentary
 
The Turkish constitutional referendum is being decided in Germany as well. About 1.5 million people in Germany are registered to vote in Turkey. Therefore Erdogan’s supporters push an aggressive campaign in Germany. People who openly stand against the referendum are bullied and threatened, and in the movie theaters a movie that praises and glorifies Erdogan is being shown. Many of the activities are organized by the UETB, the Union of European Turkish Democrats, which has been accused for a long time of being Erdogan’s right hand in Europe.
