Professional basketball player Enes Kanter Freedom accused the National Basketball Association (NBA) of hypocrisy over its decision to host “Civic Participation Night” the day before Election Day, while remaining silent about the Chinese “dictatorship” he said the league was “taking advantage of.” Getting out of.”

“The NBA’s biggest supporter is China – so when they promote civic engagement here, do they care about commenting on a dictatorship they’re taking advantage of? The NBA constantly tells me ‘We don’t want to get involved in politics’… I guess what they meant to say is ‘We don’t want to anger China'” .

According to an NBC report, the NBA will not hold any games on Election Day, but will hold “Civic Participation Night” on the Monday before the midterm elections to encourage fans and staff to get out and vote.

Kanter Freedom, a free agent for the NBA, said he supports the NBA’s decision not to hold games on Election Day, but noted that the league may encourage players to vote for one over the other.

“I think this step by the National Basketball Association is a great idea, Election Day should be a federal holiday where everyone can go out and vote,” Kanter Freedom said in an exclusive statement to Fox News Digital. He continued, “The problem is that the NBA subconsciously encourages players to vote for a particular party. Coaches who have expressed conservative values ​​have lost their jobs – that’s a problem.”

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson recently obtained exclusive recordings that found NBA officials talking about controlling Canter Freedom’s criticism of the Chinese Communist Party after the outspoken player wore anti-CPC slogans on the basketball court. Recordings indicated that China would not deal with the NBA if the players were critical of the communist country.

“This is a testament to how the Chinese dictatorship runs a 100% American company,” Kanter Freedom said. “[W]Akeup America. This is the league you have been supporting and watching. Enough is enough. This is not acceptable.”
