Authoritarian jackass builds his wall

No, you didn't fall asleep and wake up in a dystopian post-Trump-victory future. The authoritarian jackass in question is Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdo─čan, currently building a big, beautiful wall on his country's southern border to keep the designated scapegoats out. Because without hate and fear such people would be nothing. The identity of the scary outsiders doesn't matter - Mexicans, Kurds, whatever - so long as you can convince enough people that they're oppressed by their existence. This does not end well. You have been warned.

Obviously, this warning comes too late for us Brits - we voted for the nativist fantasy kingdom dreamed up by our very own xenophobic, authoritarian jackasses, so we're pretty much doomed for the forseeable future, but you go on without us, Americans - there's still time to save yourselves.
