Meh. I don't buy it.You're wrong. 99% of the votes of HDP are taken by PKK's force of arms and intimidation.
Search the internet for the role of the pkk in the elections and the method of voting. The pkk, who made the people of the region say "I am a Kurd" at gunpoint, will not interfere with my vote in the election. In addition, if the CHP did not support in the previous election, there would not be a party called HDP in the parliament now. Remember, one vote eat chp from every house, one vote eat hdp campaign.
The way I see it, at least half of the Kurds are "on the other side", organized in concentric circles:
- On the very outside, you have general Kurdish public who are somewhat supportive of PKK's goals, but won't really act on it. These are generally the people who would be staunch patriots if Kurdistan was a thing.
- A much smaller circle would encompass activists. These guys are involved with far-left or PKK adjacent organizations or groups. They may be engaged in social media activism, lawfare and community organizing type of stuff. They are the 'civilian resistance'.
- A smaller circle would have people who directly get orders from PKK/KCK who operate within the law. Mostly disguised among the 'civilian resistance', these guys provide direction to the larger movement or exploit all sorts of opportunities to further their cause.
- Then comes full blown PKK/YPG militants
- Then comes PKK/KCK leadership
- And finally; western operatives
- People in this category must be discouraged from hopping up the ladder to the second category.
- People in this category should be de-personed and alienated from society. They should be de-banked, cancelled, banned from all sorts of services. Their lives must be hard.
- People in this category should be imprisoned or subjected to paramilitary violence.
- People in this category should be killed
- People in this category should be made an example of.
- Sixth category, well idk really. Covert ops maybe?
Once Syrian operation finally happens, there will be no territory that is safe for Kurdish separatism to flourish militarily. Then this plan can truly work. Until then, this issue is a cancer that is slowly spreading through the republic's veins. If this issue is not addressed properly, we will find ourselves coping with a Balkan Catastrophe 2.0.
