The Athletic reports that Enes Kanter will change his name to Enes Kanter Freedom when he becomes a US citizen on Monday. Kanter has long been an active human-rights proponent, which has made him persona non grata in the dictatorship his native Turkey has become.
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
Is he going to fly the US
Is he going to fly the US flag off his porch too?
Why don't you drive by his house
And let us know?
I guarantee you own a hammer and sickle flag.
We should've bet $1 million first
Because then you would've lost and I'd be a millionaire, since the closest we've got is a large Norwegian flag, and Norway has a very smol (ooh, see how cool I am?) border with the country formerly known as the Godless Communist USSR (but now better known as The Former Guy's Second Favorite Foreign Country Behind North Korea).
Do you have the address?
Do you have the address?
Why yes, of course
I can tell you for [raises pinky] $1 million.
Who knows, but
What an odd question to ask.
No. It's frowned upon in my
No. It's frowned upon in my neighborhood.
What non-Boston neighborhood is that?
because it sure isn't frowned upon here in Boston.
Probably the FETO flag
A good man who will be a great American
Welcome, Enes Kanter Freedom
It's been very sad seeing the changes in Turkey over the past several years. Thank you, Enes, for fighting for human rights in your country of origin despite the high personal cost.
I can't find the article now but I read about how Kanter is a Gulen fanatic. Look him up
Is that important information?
What significance is implied by the question?
Gulen suggests de ja vu at a global level. There once was another cleric who lived away from his native nation. From a distance he helped lead a revolution. The US bet on the wrong horse in that race.
Perhaps Edrogan sees a similar race in “his” Turkey. Will the US bet on the right horse? Under Donnie it was obvious which race the White House favored.
What remains odd to me though is why Donnie never took to Iran? The Iranians are allied with Putin and Russia. We know Donnie was infatuated with Putin. Why did the infatuation not extend to Putin’s buddies?
Perhaps because Donnie felt too beholden to US Christian apocalypse fans who need an Israel that will blow up in the 2nd Coming; because Iran fits in that scenario like a perfectly fit glove, Donnie had on the one hand make moochie to his Puti but still remind his Evangelical crazies that he still supported their end of the world, damnation of everybody else game.
Despite being a member and vocal supporter of the Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ), Kanter attempts to portray himself as the voice of freedom.
In Turkey FETÖ led a deadly coup attempt that killed more than 250 people, the move was received as a tongue-in-cheek attempt to cover up Kanter’s involvement with the terrorist group.
The 28-year-old is the so-called adopted son of FETÖ leader Fetullah Gülen, the mastermind behind the 2016 coup attempt in Turkey.
Will he be automatically be related to World B. Free?
No, 2nd cousins once removed
