‘Do it, Mehmet’: German anti-litter campaign under fire for using Turkish names

Default state of mind

A German city’s campaign to encourage citizens to throw away their trash has angered the area’s Turkish community because it includes garbage bins that urge people with names such as ‘Mehmet’ and ‘Gülcan’ to pick up their litter.

The city of Duisburg launched the campaign about a month ago in an effort to keep the community clean, putting signs on around 6,000 trash cans.

The signs have slogans encouraging people to throw their litter away, such as “Come here, Kevin” and “Clean, Steffi.”

But some also include Turkish names, with slogans such as “There you go, Gülcan” and “Do it, Mehmet.”

The use of those names in the campaign have left some people within the city’s Turkish community angry.

    Islamophobia is running rampant across Germany!! Next thing you know they will ask muslim men to stop raping German women. Or stop screwing goats in the street.

      And Germany should be required to import and tend to camels so that muslims can drink their urine – not to do so would be, of course, islamophobic.

    Angry muslims. Imagine that!

  • “He did, however, note one problem with using the name Mehmet in the campaign, stressing that it could be considered a holy name because it is derived from ‘Mohammed.’”

    So. Muslims name half their boys some variant of “Mohammed”, and that means we can’t criticize anyone named some variant of “Mohammed”, because that would be like criticizing the “prophet” Mohammed? Who totally isn’t treated like a diety in Islam or anything, because Islam is very very monotheistic?

    Right-ho. Seems legit.

        I learn so much on this blog — although I could have managed without the extended knowledge of sicko islam.

    Stop giving a rat’s butt about these emotionally stunted Mo’s. They’ll rage at anything.

      Speaks volumes to their integration into German society. Screaming like petulant children for the most trivial of reasons.

    I was in Germany several different times prior to the invasion, and what really struck me was how clean and orderly it was compared to France, Italy, Spain or Portugal. Now I would not return to any Western European country for all the money in the world, and I must include the UK with the rest.
