Brickbat: Don't Upset the Turk



A German court has issued a temporary injunction barring re-publication of most of a satirical poem targeting Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Erdogan is seeking a permanent ban on the poem, and the government has launched an investigation of comedian Jan Boehmemann for reading that poem on television. Officials say he may have violated a German law banning insulting foreign heads of state.
