Erdogan the Clown defends police firing tear gas into a hotel foyer:

Visiting Ankara on Tuesday, the secretary general of the 47-nation Council of Europe, Thorbjoern Jagland said the government of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan had shown "obvious examples" of mishandling protests.
"I said to the prime minister that there is a judgment [of the European Court of Human Rights] that it is not acceptable to shoot tear gas into a closed room which happened here in a hotel reception," Jagland said. Erdogan said the hotel's owners had harbored "criminals." His remark came on Tuesday as he gave a speech to his Islamic-rooted party in parliament. He reiterated that the recent protests were part of a conspiracy to harm Turkey.

Erdogan has a sense of irony failure:

"Those who rely on the guns in their hands, those who rely on the power of the media cannot build democracy...’

Erdogan sues author for calling him bad names:

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is suing author İhsan Eliaçık over his accusations against the Turkish leader on Twitter, with the prime minister's lawyers submitting the lawsuit on behalf of Erdoğan on Monday.

The lawsuit read that Eliaçık accused Erdoğan of being a “dictator, a corrupt leader, provocateur, liar and arrogant” on his Twitter account on June 18 during the Gezi Park protests. Eliaçık, who promotes an anti-capitalist interpretation of Islam, also posted on his Twitter account that Erdoğan would be toppled by protests on the street and that his ousting from power could be magnificent. Erdoğan is suing Eliaçık for TL 50,000, claiming that these tweets openly encourage people to rebel.

Erdoğan's lawyers also argued that through his tweets Eliaçık insulted the personality of the prime minister and aimed to incite hatred toward Erdoğan. The lawsuit reads that such heavy insults cannot be considered free speech.

Signs that Erdogan has flipped:

Can Erdogan's Enemies Kill Him With Their Minds?

Recently, I asked whether Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan believed his own conspiracy theories about the anti-government protests that began in an Istanbul park at the end of May. His appointment this week of a new chief adviser suggests Erdogan may have embraced a dark fantasy world.
The new man with the prime minister's ear, Yigit Bulut, previously was the editor-in-chief of the television station Kanal 24, and has been a point man for conspiracy theories about the Gezi Park protests. His analysis has included the following interesting ideas:
-- That the German airline Lufthansa was behind the protests, because it feels threatened by Erdogan's plans to build a third airport for Istanbul that would be the largest in Europe and would compete with Frankfurt, Lufthansa's hub, for air traffic between Europe and the East;
-- That "In many centers there is work going on to kill Erdogan from afar, through methods such as telekinesis";
-- That Germany and England were in on the plot, having also been responsible for the Turkish military's hanging of former Prime Minster Adnan Menderes in 1961, following a coup;
-- That Germany owns 65 percent of Turkish media (it doesn't);
-- And that an "interest-rate lobby" has been conspiring to drive up Turkey's borrowing costs, because the banks and speculators who comprise the lobby are making less money by lending to the government than they used to before Erdogan took power. Back then, Turkey suffered from inflation rates as high as 60 percent and interest rates were commensurate.

The council of Aleppo University has announced the withdrawal of an honorary doctorate in international relations that the university awarded to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in 2009.
