Recep Tayyip Erdogan is known as Leader, Master, Sir, Conqueror of Davos, and World Leader while the opposition calls him the New Sultan and Dictator. Regardless of in which ideological frame he is analyzed, Erdogan being the greatest success story after Mustafa Kemal Ataturk in the history of Turkish politics is an undebatable fact. Therefore, a history of politics written without Erdogan and without considering multiple angles would not make it possible to understand Turkey's critical democratization and transformation processes. Erdogan is a powerful politician who showed the courage to challenge the status quo on a global scale and exclaimed to sovereign powers in the name of the oppressed, that "the world is bigger than five", who made the world accept that the New Turkey is now a noteworthy actor against oppression and oppressors. This study tries to take a socio-political picture of Western fear: Erdoganophobia.
