It’s not hard to tell who is Clown World’s candidate for the president of Turkey. It’s DARVO as diplomacy:

Kemal Kilicdaroglu, the head of Türkiye’s main opposition party, has warned Russia against meddling in the country’s affairs just days before presidential and parliamentary elections, which will be held on May 14.

“Dear Russian friends,” Kilicdaroglu, the leader of the Republican People’s Party (CHP), wrote on Twitter in Turkish and Russian on Thursday, “You are behind the montages, conspiracies, deep fakes and tapes that were exposed in this country yesterday,” he claimed without elaborating. “If you want our friendship after May 15, get your hands off the Turkish state,” the politician warned, adding that he is “still in favor of cooperation and friendship” with Russia.

Kilicdaroglu is currently polling ahead of the incumbent, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has led the country since 2014 and served as prime minister for 11 years before that.

The opposition leader’s statement comes after another presidential candidate, Homeland Party head Muharrem Ince, dropped out of the race on Thursday, claiming a “defamation campaign” had been waged against him. According to Turkish media, Ince announced his decision after a video was leaked online allegedly showing him having an extramarital affair and riding in expensive cars.

“This is the work of the Gulenist Terror Group,” Ince said, referring to supporters of exiled cleric Fethullah Gulen, who resides in the US.

The USA is confirmed to have attempted at least one coup against Erdogan in Turkey. Ince dropped out due to US interference in the election, so naturally the other candidate, who benefited from that withdrawal, is warning RUSSIA not to interfere in the election, even though Russia doesn’t appear to be anymore involved in the Turkish campaign than it was in the US presidential elections of 2016 and 2020.

Deny, Attack, and Reverse Victim and Offender is standard practice for psychos and the Deep State. Keep that in mind whenever you see these sorts of absurdist accusations.
