The National Party (Turkish: Ulusal Parti)
is a nationalist party in Turkey. The party was founded by Gökçe Fırat Çulhaoğlu
in 2010.This party’s main idols are Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, Doğan Avcıoğlu and Mirsaid
Sultan-Galiev. Unlike other socialist parties in Turkey,
they often criticise Marxism for being Eurocentrist. They describe Kemalism as socialism with Turkish
characteristics. They also idolize socialist, third worldist
and left-wing nationalist leaders like Yasser Arafat, Gamal Abdel Nasser, Hugo Chávez,
Josip Broz Tito and Patrice Lumumba. This party supports Turkish nationalism against
imperialism and separatism, socialism against capitalism, and secularism against fundamentalism. Despite this party mainly supports civic and
cultural kind of nationalism, they also have Pan-Turkist tendencies. They support an aggressive foreign policy
against Armenia and Greece. They are against any alliance with NATO, the
European Union, China or Russia. They are in favour of a Turkic union.They
are often accused of being chauvinistic and racist in Kurdish issue, because of mottos
like there is not a Kurdish problem but a Kurdish invasion, I trade with Turks, therefore
my money doesn’t flow to the PKK, save your cities from invasion (of Kurds), etc. However Gökçe Fırat claims, Kurdish ethnicity
and language are artificial, which were created by imperialist powers, especially Tsarist
Russia and British Empire. He’s also said, for us, in Turkey there is
only and one nation and it’s Turkish nation. We don’t recognise any other ethnic and national
identities. That’s why we don’t discriminate anyone, we
see every citizen as Turks.The party publishes Türksolu and İleri.==External links==
