[Blind Gossip] Remember when all of those athletes were protesting during the playing of the National Anthem?
Some refused to stand, some took a knee, some put their fists in the air, some turned their backs.
Still others refused to even come out of the locker room when the National Anthem played. The song offended them so much that they waited until it was over before coming out to the field or court or pitch.
These social justice warriors sure made it known that they had no intention of respecting or celebrating our American flag or our National Anthem or the freedoms those things represent.
We’re going to tell you about one particular professional athlete who was part of those protests. This athlete didn’t just stay in the locker room. Athlete gave interviews about how wrong and offensive it was to wave the flag or sing the National Anthem because America is an oppressor and Athlete is one of their victims because they didn’t really feel free. Because of that, Athlete finds displays of patriotism – like flags and songs – incredibly distasteful.
Good thing Athlete doesn’t know these people.
Anyway, Athlete traveled overseas to countries where they could feel more free and earn more money than in the United States. Given the chaos around the world with Covid and the horrible situation in Ukraine, you might find it hard to believe that anyone would go overseas at this time, but Athlete did.
Unfortunately, the trip did not go smoothly. Athlete broke the laws of a foreign country… and is in jail!
You know who our Athlete now wants to bail them out of jail? That horrible freedom-suppressing country, the United States of America!
Oh, the irony!
Strangely, the media is staying very quiet about Athlete’s past protests about America…

The US should not interfere. Break rules pay the price in a place where you can’t pull the race card. Stay out of Ukraine confluct. Turn off propaganda on MSN. Sadly, too many people love a bandwagon. We should offer aid when we can but not at the expense of other important causes here at home.
Brittney Griner Should rot in Russia. She should not expect the privileges of being a USA citizen by her actions. It’s what she asked for. Don’t free Brittney!
Love watching “Locked up Abroad” & “To Catch a Smuggler”. People hate America & God until they need help. Good luck getting Russia to negotiate.
Ukraine is a hot bed of corruption and money laundering. I do not trust the media propaganda or anything Hillary Clinton & George Soros supports. Everyone suddenly has a conscious for the people of Ukraine while still ignoring all the human rights violations of China & every other war in the world. Seems convenient rather than sincere.
THIS. I do not trust the narrative are being fed tbh.
Brittney Griner arrested in Russia. She may not be in dire straits as a prisoner. She may be seen as useful in Russia and fall in with Putin and say all the terrible things about USA he’d like her to say. Let them have her.
Let’s be clear. The United States of America is the best country in the world – thanks to our freedom of speech. I don’t have to like what she said, but I will support her right to say it. And I will support US citizens who are being used as pawns in an international war. That’s who WE are, as US citizens. We don’t pick and choose who we agree with and who to help. We do what’s right.
Can’t bring myself to care about this person. She did the crime, now do the time.
Let it rot over there. She did the crime…do the time. Actions have consequences and it is about time Progressives learn this.
Not feeling sorry for her. I don’t believe that people have to be rah rah America but she has made it clear that she is not fan of our country. That’s fine, but don’t expect us to run to your aid when you break the law in another country.
No one’s going to seriously help Ukraine. They don’t want to go to war with Russia. Ukraine are on their own. God speed 🙏🏽
I just wanted to say that this is absolutely hilarious. You despise the USA until you need it – can’t have it both ways, girl.
Arrogant. Clueless. About to see how time is done Russian-style.
Brittney Griner, and yes, you are right, BG, the press hasn’t reported about her earlier abuse of America. I had wondered, to be honest, if something like this was in her past so thank you for making us aware of it.
It’s INCREDIBLY disrespectful/vulgar to bring a stash of drugs into a foreign nation. She was willing to do the crime so she can do the time. I hope she likes her new home for the next 5-10 yrs.
As for Ukraine, send them weapons, planes, $$$, but no troops.
Say no to war in any capacity. Americans are struggling with high gas, homeless vets, crime, unprotected border, etc. so why should we send $$$ to Ukraine? They have been fighting with Russia for decades, not recently. I hate Europe. They always want to start world wars.
She abused America with words?
Looks like she found her new home. The US is not perfect (that is for damn sure) and quite clearly has a way to go. If she felt that protesting was doing her good, by all means. However, I am not sure what she was thinking going into Russia with a vape pen and hash oil. It’s Russia! If she is wondering what oppressed is really like, well she is about to get educated real fast. The US has a full plate. A citizen who broke the law is not a concern. I bet they will get her out cause she is a POC.
Mybellyistoofulltothink- I am from Europe. I live near the border with Ukrainians. I apologize for the grammar,but English is not my language. We don’t want a war here (in Europe),because our homes will be destroyed- not American. We want peace and to live in peace and let politicians resolve their disputes themselves. Ordinary people don’t have the money to go somewhere to the island if something goes wrong.
I’m not American and have never before heard of her. Is she high profile enough to be a “pawn”?
aaaEL 444 says
Not at all imo. That’s just another spin from msm
Thanks aaaEL 444! I suspected as much.
WNBA player in Russia.
Ah – the US soccer captain who is too morally superior to stand for the anthem, but will work for Victorias Secret. Does she not know that company’s history with Jeffrey Epstein?
They don’t care about that sort of thing. Just like LeBron who can’t shut his mouth when it comes to every issue he feels he should weigh in on but has no problem being in bed with China. Cannot stand him
High Steppa says
Brittney Griner of the WNBA. What should we do with her situation? She should be treated no differently than anyone else – unfortunately I think this is out of our hands. If you break the laws of another country, be prepared to pay the consequences.
Brittany Griner of the WNBA was caught in Russia with marijuana. She did the crime and should do the time…sorry, dear.
Brittney Griner arrested in Russia
female basketball player…forget her name… saw it on the news…. yep…stay in Russia! Hope you enjoy the wonderful prison food.
Lady Ivy says
Brittney Griner? I’m not into sports but I did some searching and it fits.
As an American, we should help her get out. But I kind of want to say if America was so bad to her, don’t come home. Figure out which radical country you can count on.
Back Ukraine! Stop importing all things Russian, including oil. Biden is so incompetent that he’ll continue to destroy everything he touches and hurt us with all of his bad decisions.
Actions have consequences, and ANYBODY with a brain knows that you don’t transport drugs into other countries….especially Communist ones.
Athlete: Britney Griner/WNBA player detained in Russia for alleged drug paraphenalia.
Brittney Griner of the WNBA was just arrested in Russia for drug possession.
WNBA player, Brittney Griner
She was the moron who went to Russia with hash vape pens. Let her stay there and see what communism is all about.
The US needs to stop depending so much on Russia for oil. We don’t need WWIII, so the US must remain steadfast in their efforts via NATO.
Russia is not a communist country. The Sovjet Union was a communist regime and it fell in 1991.
aaaSTORM says please fact check before posting we get most of our s from canada and mexico ….we got 8% from russia and only 3% of that was crude oil so we are not depending on Russia for oil
This is Brittney Griner who somehow thought it would be a good idea to smuggle cannabis into Russia.
We should do nothing about this moron. You break a country’s laws, you get to sit in their jail. It wasn’t like she was on some humanitarian trip or (as they keep trying to say) that Russia kept her in jail as some sort of hostage.
I think you have to draw a bright red line when you have an out and out invasion. And it will be bad.
I think everyone has the right to express their views. I don’t need to agree with them.
Brittney Griner- ya do the crime ya do the time- NO SPECIAL intervention for this WOKE JOKE
This is Brittney Griner who plays for the WNBA. She was arrested in Russia for smuggling a weed vape pen. Guess she didn’t think that having illegal drugs in another country wouldn’t get her in trouble.
Let her squirm for a while, then get her out somehow because she’s an American and is allowed freedom of thought. Even if it is a stupid thought. The press probably isn’t mentioning her past political views because nobody heard of her until now.
The US should supply Ukraine with as much ammo as possible, while continuing to squeeze Russia until it collapses.
You do realize that China and India don’t care about the Ukraine/Russia conflict and will happily buy up any extra Russian oil? Putin is not going to be squeezed any time soon. Look at Visa. They withdrew from Russia and now China’s UnionPay gets to pick up their business.
Brittney Griner- have fun in Russia.
Britney Greiner got caught in Russia with Hashish Oil. Currently being detained for 3 weeks.
Brittney Griner, who else. Leave her there. As for what the USA should do about Ukraine? Stay out of it. No more sending our troops to defend another country, especially since we ourselves are being invaded.
Let her go through their justice system since she broke their laws
The U.S. should not get involved in this war
Brittney Griner, WNBA
Had to look this one up, American sports are not my thing, but this is Brittney Griner. Arrested in Russia for drug possession/dealing cause she had hash oil in her luggage. The offence is such a minor thing imho, just get her out of there, regardless of what she has said/done about the US in the past. She’s still a US citizen.
High Steppa says
The problem is, this is not a “minor thing” to the Russians. She broke the law in another country and has to pay the other country’s penalties. I think this one is out of our hands. There are other US citizens in Russian prisons. We haven’t had any luck in getting them out. Brittney Griner has played basketball in Russia since 2014. She knows the laws. She was incredibly stupid and now she has to pay the price.
Brittney Griner, who plays for the Phoenix Mercury in the WNBA was arrested last month in Russia at the Moscow airport for having a vape pen filled with hash oil. She is facing a ten year sentence for drug smuggling.
What should we do? Actions have consequences, so I’m not sure.
Gotta be Dennis Rodman
Sickening Brittany griner. Hope she gets locked up, then she’ll know real oppression.
The US shouldn’t do anything. She broke the law of the country she was in and shouldn’t have gone to the airport w/drugs and expected no consequences. Pure entitlement.
On the political front, she needs to learn what oppression truly means and honey, this ‘ain’t it. Karma is biting her hard.
As far as Ukraine, the current admin should never have allowed it to progress to where it is. Now we need to help Ukraine but also avoid World War III. I hope and pray we…

Britney Griner in Russia. No doubt she’s being used as a political pawn by Putin, but she knew the risks and ignored them. The fact she was so careless during a time of war is either willful ignorance or just plain ignorance. When an American says America is “the most corrupt” country, I immediately know they don’t know what real corruption is.
Brittney Griner. Let her sweat it for a while. She doesn’t seem to be very savvy re: choosing a safe country to live in. If we go into Ukraine that nutcase in Moscow will start a nuclear war with us. Just keep providing ammunition.
Of course she does!
Good luck in Russia!
forgot to add…we should support Ukraine any way we can. ‘Oh, but we’ll pay more for gas’? Bring it on…small price to pay to do the right thing when people are laying down their lives to be free.
Gas is now over five dollars a gallon where I live, not exactly a “small price”. I can’t afford to “bring it on” any more.
Stop. Think. Farmers are going to need to get out to their fields for spring planting. If they can’t afford diesel….
…we have plenty of oil right here. Let’s get back to using it.
Brittney is the athlete, of course the USA should intervene on her behalf, she is an American citizen – did I like what she did, hell no but that is the beauty of being an American, we can have different opinions and be able to criticize our government.
I hope we (USA) does whatever is possible to help Ukrainian people.
Brittany Griner is in jail in Russia due to her own stupidity and arogance…and she can rot there.
Brittney Griner: WNBA
As for UKR- president Z was correct, we should have helped them much earlier on to deter Putin, and we should never have given up our oil independence . Biden was to busy on gender identity issues, releasing criminals and allowing illegals across the border. And hear we are staring at a possible WWIII.
Karma is a b!
Brittney Griner/basketball – I was curious why she played in Russia; this fully explains. Was caught with CBD oil at airport. As much as I think she deserves this karma, Putin will punish her because of his hatred of the US – should we negotiate her release – no, but rather make as much noise as possible in hopes they don’t want the attention. Not the best timing with what’s happening in UKR and all the sanctions.
WNBA player who was smuggling weed in her vaper. What should the USA do? Try to get her back -but I doubt if she gets back safely that she will apologize for her stupid behavior. Such a dolt she thinks to take weed with her to Russia is a good idea. In fact, she was so free here that she just thought EVERY country was like us. Dolt.
We must support Ukraine but sending fighter jets will start a war. Just what the elitist leaders want. Someone is making off of this. Guarantee.
Brittney Griner. She should have done a little homework about world events and the laws in Russia. The US should let her take her punishment.
Fyi her 4-yr education at Baylor is valued at almost $300K.
Most people aren’t so fortunate to get a full ride.
The USA should stay out of the Russia/Ukraine mess.
Britney Griner WNBA
Brittney Griner/ basketball
WNBA knee taker should rot in Russian prison.
USA should support freedom fighters in Donbass against the Ukrainian fascist neo-nazis.
Ummm but Ukrainians AREN’t fascist neo-Nazis. That is propaganda put out by Putin.
Brittney Griner facing 5-10 in a Russian prison at a time when the Rusky’s anti-American sentiment is at an all-time high. She’ll fit right in and get to learn a new language in the process…win/win!
This Oppressed Athlete bit the hand that feeds, left a protected country with all it’s inconvenient first world problems and is now having to experience real-time oppression. May this be a lesson in true gratitude for her and perhaps, thoughtful reflection. May she gain a desire to learn more than what her HS and college professor’s drilled into her head.
I hope negotiators are able to extract her safely.
Brittney Yevette Griner. Nobody cares if you are gay or black, so grow up, stop complaining and get help for your anger. Also, GO USA!!!!!!
Soccer player Britney Griner..,….
Britney Griner and we need to get her home, she’s still a US citizen. We have to support Ukraine and it’s all my family talks about.
This is definitely Brittney Griner from the WNBA that’s in a Russian jail for drugs.
