Sara A. Carter called the number of riots, looting sprees, and violence sprees that have broken out across the country in response to the death of George Floyd a “tragedy,” during an appearance on Fox News’ “Ingraham Angle” Friday.
“My seven-year-old daughter asked me, you know the other day ‘mommy, why are we fighting each other? I thought daddy fought the bad guys overseas’ because my husband fought in Afghanistan and Iraq, and he was wounded overseas fighting terrorists. And I said to her, you know, this is a part of our history right now, a part of our nation, we’re struggling to get through this,” Carter explained.
Moreover, Carter pointed to some people in the U.S. education system that have indoctrinated America’s youth into ‘leftist’ values that she described as “anti-American.”
Carter, who’s reported in many warzones overseas, added that in battle “it didn’t matter what color you were, it didn’t matter what religion you were, you stood alongside each other and you fought a common enemy to protect this country.”
Carter said, “I really want us all to just take a step back and take a deep breath and realize that this is the greatest nation on earth. That so many people struggled to get here, fight to get here, died to get here to be a part of this great nation with a great judicial system with a wonderful, wonderful basis in our constitution.”
“And I think it’s a real tragedy that we’re not seeing that now. We’re not seeing it taught in our schools and we’re not seeing it in our city streets,” she added.

Boston Celtics Player Legally Changing Name to ‘Enes Kanter Freedom’ to Celebrate U.S. Citizenship
Boston Celtics center Enes Kanter is celebrating becoming a U.S. citizen in an incredible way. The 29-year-old athlete from Turkey is having his citizenship oath ceremony Monday, and will legally change his name to Enes Kanter Freedom.
Kanter is an outspoken human rights advocate who had his Turkish passport revoked in 2017 after he criticized Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Mediaite reports “he has also criticized NBA stars Michael Jordan and LeBron James for not doing enough to help the Black community and not speaking out against exploitative labor practices in China respectively.”
Celtics head coach Ime Udoka told the Boston Globe the team is “all for” the player’s name change. Kanter’s manager says the player will complete his legal name change to have Kanter become his middle name and Freedom be his new last name at Monday’s ceremony.
“We congratulated him as a group for getting his American citizenship last week,” Udoka said. “That’s who Enes is, we’re proud of him. Enes is who he is. He’s passionate about his stances and the name change; you look at [Ron] Artest [who changed his name to Metta Sandiford-Artest in the middle of the COVID-19 outbreak] and guys that have done it in the past. It’s something he wants to express and we’re all for it.”
Kanter has already changed his official Twitter account to Enes Kanter FREEDOM with his new last name in all caps. Freedom made waves when he tweeted the following on November 18: Money over Morals for the ‘King’. Sad & disgusting how these athletes pretend they care about social justice. They really do ‘shut up & dribble’ when Big Boss [inserted Chinese flag] says so. Did you educate yourself about the slave labor that made your shoes or is that not part of your research?”
The tweet included photos of basketball shoes he wore painted with human rights depictions and phrases such as “hey still researching and getting educated?” as well as “I am informed and educated on the situation.”
The statement is with regard to his criticism of LeBron James’ partnership with Nike. “Nike remains one of the NBA’s biggest sponsors as both organizations feed off their partnerships with China” reports Mediaite. Kanter Freedom also made an offer to take Michael Jordan and Nike co-founder Phil Knight to China in order for the men to “visit these slave labor camps and you can see it with your own eyes.”
