>first of all he's from the US, so not a "foreigner" just because he has duel citizenship. second, if you're really a progressive, as an American you'll understand you're standing in a glass house trying to guilt him by association with the Turkish regime just because his family is from there.

The guy spent just as much time in the Turkish Army than Pennsylvania, (Moved to the state in late 2020 and spent two years in the Turkish Army.) it's a very valid point to not want that representing a state in the Federal Senate when he doesn't have the first clue what the state needs or wants...

the fact that he's a grifter with an nj mansion that doesn't give a fuck about pa is a completely different issue. ill shit on him all day for that.

just not here for people trying to paint their political opponents as treasonous foreigners against the US or some shit just because they have ties to countries with governments they have negative opinions about. person above tried to backtrack saying oz is a white guy, but it's still xenophobia. honestly the kind of shit you'd expect to hear from the maga people.

Friendly reminder that Erdogans bodyguards attacked American citizens on American soil during a visit to the White House during Trumps administration.

Erdogan is still the leader of Turkey to this day, and Oz has longstanding connections with him, as well as having served in the Turkish Army.

Thats like electing a known member of the KGB to Congress.
