The Boston Celtics center Enes Kanter is now Enes Kanter Freedom, and he is also an official citizen of the United States.
On Monday, the outspoken human rights activist and fearless critic of Chinese communist slave labor made it official when he swore the oath of allegiance to a judge while wearing a T-shirt with the American flag.
I’m proud to be American.
Largest nation in the world.
The land of the free and the home of the brave. 🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/8mbUX1dpWS

Athletics Shams Charania reported that the Celtics star, who was born in Switzerland but grew up in Turkey and has Turkish citizenship, would choose “Freedom” as his last name and make Kanter his middle name.
Freedom has become the only active NBA player to openly, directly and consistently criticize China for its numerous human rights violations and massive slave labor programs. Moreover, the newest citizen of the United States has also taken direct aim at the face of his league, LeBron James, and his intricate ties to communist China and, by extension, slave labor through his clothing sponsorship deals with Nike.
Freedom has continued his criticism of the regimes in Turkey, China and their affiliated corporate sponsors, despite claiming to have received death threats. He even claims that the FBI gave him a “panic button” if he needed emergency assistance.
Celtic’s great man has used his voice and his shoes as part of his quest to focus on Chinese slave labor.
XI JINPING and the Chinese Communist Party
Someone needs to teach you a lesson,
I will NEVER apologize for telling the truth.
You can NOT buy me.
You can NOT scare me.
You can NOT silence me.

To those of you who care about human dignity:
Help spread the word.
What is happening to the Uighurs is one of the WORST human rights violations in the world today.

As Breitbart Sports reported, “Since Kanter began his public protests against Beijing, the Celtics have dramatically cut his playing time, resulting in a kind of ‘shadow benching’ to keep the star and his anti-communist shoes off the floor.”
Despite his direct criticism of him and his business dealings with China, LeBron James has refused to engage in Freedom in any debate.
