Turkish State Television TRT refused to imagine world without religion, censores John Lennon song’s imagine a world without religion at Olympic ceremony.
Turkey / NationalTurk – A moderator for Turkish state broadcaster TRT expurgated part of iconic British musician John Lennon’s lyrics of ‘ Imagine ‘ that call for ‘ no religion ‘ during the broadcasting of the Olympic Games’ closing ceremony.
One of Lennon’s most renown and famous songs, ‘ Imagine,’ was included in the Aug. 12 Olympics closing ceremonies and was translated into Turkish by the gutless TRT presenter as it played in the background.
A world with no religion is untolerable for ‘changing’ TRT mentality
The verses of the song which called for people to imagine a world with no countries and no reason to kill or die for were correctly translated into Turkish, but the weasel TRT presenter, a mirror image of new TRT mentality described best as almond shaped mustaches skipped the part where John Lennon sang for ‘ no religion.’
The TRT presenter translated the remainder of the lyrics from John Lennon’s unforgettable song about freedom and rights correctly.
