Enes Kanter Freedom final

“How can the biggest dictatorship in the world control a 100% American-made organization and put pressure on them to fire an American citizen?” Today, I sit down with NBA player Enes Kanter Freedom. After playing 11 seasons, his career abruptly ended when he made headlines, speaking out about human rights abuses in China. “NBA is not the only one,” says Freedom. “You see Hollywood, you see big tech, you see academia, you see Wall Street, you see Congress…They're pretty much trying to invade America from the inside, because they know they're not strong enough to invade America from the outside.” Freedom tells me about what made him the man he is today and what gave him the courage to stand up to major multinational corporations and the Chinese Communist Party. He grew up in Turkey under a repressive regime, and was ultimately forced to choose between family, and principle. “They sent police to my house in Turkey and they raided the whole house. And they took every electronic away: phones, computers, laptops, iPads, because they wanted to see if I am still in contact with my family or not…They put my name on the Interpol list. So, until this day, I am pretty much an international criminal,” says Freedom.
