Boston Celtics Player Enes Kanter Slams Ilhan Omar For Failing To Vote For Economic Sanctions On Turkey: ‘Absolute Disappointment And Shame’

Boston Celtics player Enes Kanter slammed Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar Tuesday for failing to vote for a bill that would place economic sanctions on Turkey.

The Boston Celtics center and NBA star tweeted at the Minnesota representative Tuesday night and said it was “an absolute disappointment and shame” that Omar was the only Democrat who failed to vote for a bill imposing sanctions on Turkey over its military offensive against northern Syrian Kurdish forces.

The House passed the bill with strong bipartisan support in a vote of 403-16, according to The Hill

“What an absolute disappointment and shame that the only democrat who did NOT support the Turkish bill aiming to stop the killing of innocent people is @IlhanMN who seems like on #DictatorErdogan ‘s payroll working for his interests, but not for the American people and democracy!” Kanter tweeted.

Kanter is Turkish and has frequently criticized Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, The Hill reported.

  • Ilhan Omar is not a AMERICA or liberal she's a jihadist! WE are all Infidels who need to bow down to their authority or DIE!! She has no business in our COUNTRY to be in OFFICE for anything. She's a felon and she is getting AWAY with it. If she was a REPUBLICAN she would never have been in any election let alone win!! WAKE up PEOPLE VOTE her out ASAP!!!

  • Omar should be in federal prison and be kicked out of the country after she serves her sentence for immigration fraud and other felonies.

  • She keeps throwing out the race card but all of her actions just scream who the real racist is. I sure hope her constituents are paying attention
