WNBA player Brittney Griner used to ‘take a knee’ or boycott the National Anthem.
“I honestly feel we should not play the National Anthem,” the woke player whined. “I’m not going to be out there for the national anthem.”
Instead, she went to Russia and was busted for illegal drugs.
While Griner was using her freakish height to build a career of putting an orange ball through a net and getting new tattoos, Paul Whelan was serving in Iraq after a career in law enforcement.
Both Griner and Whelan appear to have made mistakes in their lives. And both ended up being held hostage in Russian prisons.
But there were fundamental differences between them.
Whelan was the wrong race, the wrong gender, the wrong sexual orientation and had even congratulated Trump on his victory. While Griner, a black leftist lesbian celebrity who hated this country, was everything that the Left loved.
The Biden administration moved hell and earth to get the pothead WNBA player out because she hates America almost as much as they do. And left Whelan behind.
In the old days the ethos was to save women and children first. Today, leftists don’t believe in such things. Or even believe in the existence of women. But they practice ‘equity’ in hostage rescues. The black woke lesbian with a cohort of celebrity fans obviously goes first.
And the straight white male ex-military Trump supporter can rot in prison.
If the Titanic were to sink today, the straight white people would be locked in the hold while access to the lifeboats would go in order of race, sexual fetishes and, above all, leftism.
Biden’s dirty deal exchanged Viktor Bout, the “Merchant of Death”: a Russian arms dealer accused of working with everyone from Al Qaeda to Hezbollah, for a WNBA player. That’s the worst trade since the Sixers swapped Charles Barkley for three guys we never heard of again.
Bout takes lives and wins wars. Griner hates America and plays in a league no one watches.
Our people had spent a long time trying to hunt down Bout. They finally caught him offering to deliver 100 surface-to-air missiles and 20,000 high-powered rifles to Marxist narcosocialist guerrillas to kill Americans who were fighting the drug trade in Colombia.
“We have the same enemy,” Bout had allegedly said.
Biden has traded a monster trying to help Marxist drug traffickers kill Americans for a pothead.
We do indeed have the same enemy. Biden and Griner are playing for the same team. And it’s a team that takes a knee for the anthem and does everything it can to weaken our country. After six years of hysterical accusations that Republicans are in league with Russia, Biden just gave Vladimir Putin his biggest win, offering up Bout without even trying to negotiate a better deal.
Biden might have considered offering some sanctions relief to Russia, the way he is to Iran, instead of releasing the ‘Merchant of Death’ whose freedom will put innocent lives at risk. The next time Americans or other people are killed by Bout’s weapons, the blood will be on Biden’s hands. Along with the hands of every celebrity and leftist activist who clamored for the pothead to come to this country where she can safely light up and then jeer the nation that took her in.
Paul Whelan doesn’t understand why he was left behind.
“I am greatly disappointed that more has not been done to secure my release, especially as the four year anniversary of my arrest is coming up. I was arrested for a crime that never occurred,” he wondered. “I don’t understand why I’m still sitting here.”
He may want to take a look in the mirror.
Paul was unfortunate enough to be born white. He was misguided enough to refrain from any radical sexual experimentation. While he made mistakes in his life, he never took a knee. Had he only put on drag and denounced America, he would probably already be a free woman.
The tragic truth is that we have enemies in Washington D.C. who hate us as much as our enemies in Moscow, Beijing or Tehran. They not only hate our country, but they hate us because of the colors of our skin, the nature of our faith and our other differences from them. And they take pains to remind us of this as a matter of federal policy, in corporate workplaces and across the entertainment industry. Paul Whelan was abandoned by his country because there is no one in the White House to represent that country: only the freakshow treason of Brittney Griner.
It is a mistake to think that the woke coup whose equity and ESG quislings have taken control of our government, our companies and our culture don’t look out for their own. They certainly do.
If you’re a woke black lesbian, they will do everything possible to save you. Or at least sell out our national security which they value almost as highly as most Americans value the WNBA.
But if you’re a straight white male, good luck.
Biden abandoned unknown numbers of Americans in Afghanistan. But had any of them been a black gay WNBA player who boycotted the National Anthem, he would have sent 10,000 troops.
Washington D.C. is a government of traitors whose betrayals have become so successful that it is no longer treason, but an enemy regime that rules us the way the Bolsheviks once ruled Russia. They view us as enemies to whom they owe nothing, but whatever pain and suffering they can inflict in the name of their cause, whom they abandon and betray at the first chance.
And any sensible person ought to return the favor.
Just as no leftist government would do anything to free Whelan because he’s a straight white male Trump supporter, no conservative government should do anything to free someone like Griner. Whether we like it or not, we’re in a war and it’s time we recognized that hard reality.
As Obama once urged, punish your enemies. His successor is doing just that.
Will any conservative administration finally have the guts to do it too?
