Turkish Foreign Minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu was barred from flying into Rotterdam to participate in pro-Erdogan rallies.
Turkish president Erdogan responded by calling the Dutch “fascists” and saying that the EU member state was a nazi remnant.
This latest “nazi” outburst follows on the heels of Erdogan calling Germany a “nazi/fascist” state.
The Dutch media was quick to respond to Erdogan’s nazi claims with this tweet and chart…
So #Erdogan called the Dutchies fascists and nazi’s today #turkijerel

Gert Wilders was also tweeting in response to the Dutch ban on the Turkish Family Minister…
Go away and never come back @drbetulsayan and take all your Turkish fans from The Netherlands with you please. #byebye

All this back and forth as to who is, or is not a nazi, is not bound to help ease the tension in Rotterdam as more Turks take to the streets.
