IN just the latest scumbag move from president scumbag of Turkey, they are now demanding that Enes Kanter, the NBA player, be arrested and extradited because Erdogan hates his father.
New York Knicks player Enes Kanter is defiantly speaking out against the president in his native Turkey, despite Turkish prosecutors’ attempts to seek an international arrest warrant against him.
“Leave the innocent people alone,” he said in a message to the Turkish government during an interview with News 4 New York on Wednesday. “It doesn’t matter what you do, I will continue to talk about this. This is way bigger than everything. This is way bigger than me.”
Here’s how he responded:
Turkish Government can NOT present any single piece of evidence of my wrongdoing. 🤷♂️— Enes Kanter (@EnesKanter) January 16, 2019
I don’t even have a parking ticket in the US 😂 (True)
I have always been a law-abiding resident. 😇 https://t.co/DxLgvFcTST
They’re accusing him of terrorism, but what that means in a dictatorship is that you spoke out against the government.
Turkish prosecutors are accusing Kanter of membership in a terror organization. Sabah newspaper says the Istanbul chief prosecutor’s office had also prepared an extradition request for the NBA player. Officials at the prosecutor’s office could not be reached by The Associated Press for comment.
Luckily, he’s got Marco Rubio to back him up:
Unfortunately, Trump has been playing footsie with Erdogan, who promised him that he would take out ISIS if American troops would just pull out Syria. Of course, if some Kurds happen to be slaughtered *accidentally* by Turkish forces, well, that’s just the way it goes, right?
I really hope Trump sees through Erdogan’s insane requests and promises. He is not to be trusted…
