China CANCELS the Boston Celtics after Turkish center calls for the liberation of Tibet

Enes Kanter, the Turkish-born center for the Boston Celtics whose family has been imprisoned in Turkey by Sultan Erdogan, put out a video yesterday criticizing the Chinese president and calling for the liberation of Tibet from China’s oppressive rule over the country:

He made his statement while wearing a shirt with the Dalai Lama’s face on it.



China didn’t appreciate this video at all and has now stopped steaming the Celtic’s games in China as a result:

 
One person on Twitter drew an apt comparison between Kanter and Kaepernick:

She’s absolutely right. Kanter constantly has international warrants for his arrest issued by Turkey because he dares criticize Turkey’s Islamic dictator and stands up for freedom. His family has been imprisoned by Erdogan. And yet he continues to use his voice to speak out, standing up for what he believes in even if it means sacrificing everything.

Colin Kaepernick is nothing but a commie who both disrespects and hates America, yet is celebrated as some kind of hero by the media and Hollywood.
