Just how big of a footprint did Brittney Griner’s supersized sneakers have on the Biden administration’s foreign policy… as opposed to the 17 other Americans locked up in Russia and the hundreds around the world?
Hating the Saudi Crown Prince and the UAE is mandatory among leftists even since they turned on the Muslim Brotherhood in the wake of Obama’s disastrous Arab Spring coups. Saint Khashoggi is invoked as the only martyr that they believe in anymore. But Khashoggi had to step back for Brittney Griner.
Biden, fearful about the midterms, trooped down to try and talk the Saudis into an energy price deal, but failed. He did however secure their intervention for his woke leftist racist base.
The landmark prison swap that freed WNBA star Brittney Griner from a Russian gulag Thursday was brokered by none other than the notorious Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, it was revealed Thursday.
The role of the crown prince, widely known as MBS, in the sensitive negotiations was outlined in a joint statement released by the foreign ministries of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
“The success of the mediation efforts was a reflection of the mutual and solid friendship between their two countries and the United States of America and the Russian Federation,” the two countries wrote.
The exchange was made in Abu Dhabi: which makes the role of the UAE very obvious. Publicly, the Biden administration has managed to anonymously snub the Saudis.
A White House official declined to elaborate on MBS’ role in Griner’s release, saying: “There are a number of governments and countries that throughout the horrific ordeal that Brittany has been through … we have asked to convey just how serious we are about resolving these cases once and for all, and I’ll leave the details of that out. But I would say that we do engage with a wide range of countries so that the Russians hear from a wide range of sources about our commitment to resolving what a priority that again.”
Clearly, it was a priority. And a top-tier one. Above most foreign policy priorities. Brittney Griner was so top drawer that she displaced Khashoggi in the Biden administration’s priorities. The only other thing that did that was the midterms. But the two are connected. Biden doesn’t care about Griner, per se, but she’s another means of rallying his woke base. And a way to remind them that Biden’s priorities are racially tribal. He’s got their back.
The Biden administration went pleading with every country around the world to help them get their woke anti-American pothead out of the clink, further degrading this country and our international status.
How many other Americans held abroad get this treatment?
Your average American locked up on drug charges will be ignored by the administration. Unless they are very politically connected, the secretary of state will never hear their names. Let alone the president.
This is what completely unequal justice looks like. Also known as ‘equity’.
