Concerned about COVID-19 Erdogan Orders Soundproof Masks on Journalists

Concerned about soaring COVID-19 rates in his country, Turkish President and Grand Sultan-wannabe Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, has ordered “all problematic journalists” to don N95 soundproof masks.
Speaking to The Mideast Beast, Erdogan noted, “All Turks are very precious to me, especially Turkish journalists who adore me for pampering them with unprecedented freedom. Out of concern for the journalists’ wellbeing in this era of corona, I have ordered soundproof masks to be worn by all uncooperative journalists who risk infecting the general population. The more they speak, the more likely they are to spread the virus.”
Speaking with Turkish journalists, Erdogan stressed that his democratic measures are altruistic. “There is no need to thank me, especially since it can be difficult to do so through those soundproof masks on your faces. However, there are still a few of you who remain untamed, and for the good of the country, will be placed in indefinite quarantine. Masks will still have to be worn.”
Erdogan lamented that “racist infidels” refuse to recognize the Muslim World as the global “human rights superpower.”
“Ever since we Muslims discovered America before the infidel Columbus, preserving human life and diversity has always been a top priority for Islamist democrats like myself. This excludes of course undesirables such as women, gays and other kind of weird minorities. Like in any happy family, the harmonic Islamic family occasionally has minor internal disagreements from the Mideast to Europe and beyond.”
Erdogan concluded by lecturing Israel on human rights. “Because of the cruel Zionist genocide, the Palestinian population has grown by 100 percent since 1970. By contrast, we Turks have always adhered to the highest human rights standards, especially during the “great Armenian disappearance.”

The Mideast Beast (TMB) is a political satire and comedy news site that produces spoof articles about or connected to the Middle East, only for comedic and entertainment purposes. We are your Middle Eastern equal opportunity offenders. We poke at anyone and anything that we can get our mucky little paws on. Whatever you read on TMB is totally fictitious and you should not take us seriously in any way, shape, or form. Clear? Are you sure? Good. Moving on… Our goal: We always want to make you laugh but we also want you to think about the issues we write about. After all, satire and comedy are elements of education. We also aim to shine a little light into this insane region. We believe that laughter, thought, and hopefully understanding, are legitimate tools in helping to reduce extremism. Our audience: Anyone interested in the Middle East, which pretty much means everyone these days. P.S.: Because TMB can be naughty at times, articles in The Mideast Beast are not intended for persons under the age of 17. Sorry kiddies.
