Reports: NBA’s Enes Kanter Freedom traded to the Rockets then immediately waived

Enes Kanter Freedom

NBA player Enes Kanter Freedom has been very vocal about making sure the humanitarian rights violations in China are brought to the public forefront. Freedom has used his public platform to raise awareness and bring light to the atrocities of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and even changed his name to Freedom in public display. As a result, he undoubtedly is being punished.

On Thursday, Kanter was traded to the Rockets from the Boston Celtics. On Friday, ESPN reporter Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted, “The Rockets are waiving Enes Freedom, source tells ESPN.” The Daily Caller News Foundation  writes “there is a very high chance he never plays in the league again.”

Kanter Freedom was brave enough to appear in a Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) ad for the Olympics which was promoting free speech. Freedom of speech is very important to Kanter who is originally from Turkey.

On Monday the player tweeted from his official Twitter account, @EnesFREEDOM posted this message:

“I do NOT care about politics. The only thing I care about is Human rights, Freedom and being the voice for the voiceless. The question people should ask themselves is; Despite our differences, what can we do to make this world better, TOGETHER?”

Despite Kanter’s fight for freedom and for humanitarian justice, he is getting punished. When Colin Kaepernick took a knee and began some anti-American rhetoric by some, not all, athletes in professional sports, nothing happened. In fact, they were rewarded and praised.

Kanter, however, spoke out against human rights abuses, in a communist country, and he is being punished in the United States where we stand for Freedom. But the NBA has crumbled to China.

China has a financial tie to the NBA because the league profits heavily from doing business in China. When the general manager of the Houston Rockets, Daryl Morey, supported the freedom protests in Hong Kong, the owner of the Houston Rockets, the Chinese consulate and the Chinese basketball association all denounced Morey.

The NBA put out a statement calling his action “regrettable” and that it didn’t “represent the Rockets or the NBA.” After his remarks, the NBA lost roughly $200 million after China took the games off of Chinese tv as punishment. Relationships such as Nike and LeBron James makes the player roughly $30 million richer each year.

    We need more patriots like Enes Kanter Freedom. He is a gift to freedom loving Americans and anti americans’ worse nightmare. He will make enough money in his lifetime to start his own Basketball League. If your in China’s pocket like Nike, NBA, and others are, you will eventually be a memory.

    Enes Kanter Freedom is a hero. Glad somebody had the balls to confront this demon. China needs to be held accountable for their humanitarian atrocities. Thank you Mr.Freedom for being a voice for the Uyghurs.

Florida Gov Signs Law Making It Illegal To Protest Outside An Individual’s Home

Published

on

Ron DeSantis

On Monday, Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill that makes it a crime to protest outside an individual’s home.

“Sending unruly mobs to private residences, like we have seen with the angry crowds in front of the homes of Supreme Court justices, is inappropriate,” DeSantis said. “This bill will provide protection to those living in residential communities and I am glad to sign it into law.”

The law will go into effect on October 1, and once “this law takes effect, law enforcement officers will provide a warning to any person picketing or protesting outside of a dwelling and will make arrests for residential picketing only if the person does not peaceably disperse after the warning. Residential picketing will be punishable as a second-degree misdemeanor,” DeSantis’ office explained.

“It is unlawful for a person to picket or protest before or about the dwelling of any person with the intent to harass or disturb that person in his or her dwelling,” the text of the bill says. “Before a person may be arrested for a violation of this section, a law enforcement officer… or a local, state, federal, or military law enforcement agency must go as near to the person as may be done with safety and shall command any person picketing or protesting before or about the dwelling of a person to immediately and peaceably disperse. If any such person does not thereupon immediately and peaceably disperse, he or she may be arrested for a violation of this section.”

The new law comes in response to leftist protests outside the homes of Supreme Court justices following the leak of a draft of a Supreme Court majority opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade was leaked to Politico.

“Roughly 100 protesters appeared outside Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s house, where they carried signs and chanted slogans before walking a half-mile to Chief Justice John Roberts’s home, then back to Kavanaugh’s home, where police ordered them to leave the area,” The Washington Examiner reported last week.

Pelosi Snaps When Asked About Baby Formula Shortage

Nancy Pelosi

On Sunday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) snapped when asked about comments from Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), who criticized President Biden’s decision to send baby formula to the southern border as the United States suffers from a baby formula shortage.

“Joe Biden continues to put America LAST by shipping pallets of baby formula to the southern border as American families face empty shelves,” Stefanik wrote on Twitter. “This is unacceptable. American mothers and their babies shouldn’t suffer because of the #BidenBorderCrisis.”

Pelosi was asked about Stefanik’s comments during an interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week.”

“As usual, her statement is totally irresponsible,” Pelosi said. “Babies are crying. We need to get them food. And the president has — now what we’re doing this week in the Congress is, again, Bobby Scott, chair of the Education and Labor Committee, that’s the jurisdiction that will lower some of the regulations, et cetera, so that it’s easier to buy it… We must do something as quickly as possible, but as safely as possible, and use caution, for these babies. But we have to move quickly to do that. And part of this is, again, the supply chain issue.”

Stefanik responded to Pelosi on Twitter, writing: “As usual, your LEADERSHIP is totally irresponsible. Babies are crying. We need to get them food.”
