Turkey Bans Youtube, We Still Get Weird Turkish Action Movies [VIDEOS]

‚ By 

 

The Turkish government has continued its crackdown on the evil Internet Thingy by adding YouTube to its super long list of banned websites. The block came a few hours after a security meeting was held in the foreign ministry’s office to discuss leaks on the Internet of voice recordings of high-level officials. Google Inc. had already announced  last week that it had declined requests from the Turkish government in recent weeks to remove YouTube videos revealing extensive corruption involving the PM, his family, ministers, businessmen and several government officials–as reported in the Wall Street Journal.

This really sucks for Turkey. The great news for all of us in the United States, of course, is that we still have access to everything Turkey-related on YouTube. So good for the USA–especially since we’d hate to give up all of our favorite weird Youtube clips featuring phenomenal footage from Turkish action films. Take a look at our favorites, and have some sympathy for the people of Turkey…
