I don’t wish any American the grim reality of being trapped in another country by an enemy nation, even if they are guilty of what they’re charged with.
However, I have to wonder if WNBA star (and Russian basketball player), Brittney Griner, Black Lives Matter supporter, is possibly re-thinking her stance on disrespecting the National Anthem?
Griner is being held in Russia and faces ten years in jail because of a drug charge, having been found with hash vape pens in her luggage.
What was Griner doing in Russia? Well, she didn’t feel she was being paid enough by the WNBA and in order the chase the almighty dollar, she has been playing for a Russia team in the offseason since 2014. She gets over $1 million per season from the Russians.
This woke basketball star wasn’t just a National Anthem kneeler, she didn’t even go out on the floor when it was played. She didn’t want to give America or those who fought for our freedoms their due respect.
Back in June of 2021, Griner said “I honestly feel we should not play the Nation Anthem during our season, I think we should take that much of a stand. I’m going to protest regardless. I’m not going to be out there for the National Anthem.”
Because America is evil, you know. And very very oppressive.
So oppressive and evil that Griner was somehow able to become a millionaire from playing basketball and having product endorsements.
So evil that Griner can speak her mind in our country, act like a spoiled brat and not get thrown in jail for doing so. Unlike in many other countries.
Griner didn’t appreciate the freedoms of America and turned her back on America. Now she’s hoping that our government doesn’t do the same to her.
