"We firmly oppose the corruption of concepts such as freedom and tolerance for the sake of homosexuality propaganda, targeting our families and children in this way" said Fahrettin Altun, the Presidential Spokesperson.
Fahrettin Altun, Communications Director of the Turkish Presidency, who said “mad minority” about the protests at Boğaziçi University, who announced the closure of Boğaziçi University LGBTI+ Studies Club on social media before anyone else, who targeted LGBTI+'s at the 2020 Pride Week, once again targeted homosexuals.
Altun spoke at the opening of the Digital World Workshop held at the Dolmabahçe Office. The workshop is being held by the Anatolian Publishers Association with the support of the Presidency's Directorate of Communications.
In one part of his speech, Altun targeted homosexuals with homophobic hate speech:
“Likewise, we firmly oppose the corruption of concepts such as freedom and tolerance for the sake of homosexuality propaganda, targeting our families and children in this way. Protecting our citizens from all kinds of extremism is the primary duty of the state. Presenting such ugliness as something normal, especially to young people, is an attack on our social order and the noble character of our nation. Making the slightest concession on this issue today to look nice for others will result in much more serious problems in the future. We are not allowing this, we will not allow."
