So Netflix is financing a series to promote Turk imperialism...


The same Netflix that constantly goes against western whites, US and Europe in general. But when it comes to Turkey, wokes support Turk imperialism.

This goes beyond political. They should start to be considered as enemies of western people.

Netflix is a global company with audiences outside of the United States.

Europeans know more about Turkish and Ottoman history than a majority of the America people who know next to nothing and only associate Turkey with terrorism or the recent US invasion of the Middle-East which btw is a form of Imperialism. Many of the scientific developments and innovations born out of Medieval Europe came out of the conflict with the Ottomans as both sides traded ideas in warcraft, medicine, and agriculture.

Your sorry perception of Western culture looks like it was developed by watching Steve Bannon seminars

The commonly held view in Europe during the Enlightenment was that Islam, then synonymous with the Ottoman Empire, was a bloody, ruthless and intolerant religion. In the European view, Islam lacked divine authority and regarded the sword as the route to heaven. Hume appears to represent this view in his reference to the "bloody principles" of Islam, though he also makes similar critical comments about the "bloody designs" characterizing the conflict between Catholics and Protestants during the Reformation. Many contemporary works about Islam were available to influence Hume's opinions by authors such as Isaac Barrow, Humphrey Prideaux, John Jackson, Charles Wolseley, Hugo Grotius, Paul Rycaut, Thomas Hyde, Pierre Bayle, and Blaise Pascal. The writers of this period were also influenced by George Sale who, in 1743, had translated the Quran into English.

The Enlightenment has nothing to do with this documentary and certainly nothing to do with supporting the idiot top post in this thread.

Well, I know that we learned to drink coffee from there. I'll give it to the Turks.

So you don't believe there should be shows that go into history at all? What would you prefer? the Superhero crap that they keep recycling? Anyway I rarely see an original Netflix show that's any good, this may be an exception. But if it doesn't have a rightwing propaganda message I'm sure you'd hate it.
