As the West struggles with use of politically correct terms in an attempt to not offend anyone, anywhere, anytime, Turkey says using the terms Nazism and Fascism are only metaphors according to a Reuters news agency report. At a news conference in Istanbul, Turkey’s Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus said, “We make these metaphors about fascism and Nazism because we worry about the future of our European friends. We do know what these comments mean, particularly in Germany”. Germany has blocked Turkish speakers from campaigning in Germany for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s presidential campaign. President Erdogan has previously used the term Nazi when referring to the governments of the Netherlands and Germany straining diplomatic ties.
