Well, for somebody who thought the United States was pure evil and racist, I bet she now misses all the freedoms that she took for granted while living in the US, while sitting in a Russian prison and with a prison population that isn’t too thrilled about Americans, especially an American of Color.

Honestly, I do hope that the Russians are keeping her in their version of protective custody since American weapons are killing huge numbers of Russians invaders in the Ukraine. I wouldn’t put it past a female Russian prisoner taking out some revenge and I’m sure that the guards wouldn’t be in a hurry to stop it either.

Sadly, even when they do a prisoner swap, she will still not stand for the National Anthem or say anything nice about our country. I hope I am wrong, but people who buy into that liberal BS never change.

If that’s the case, I hope that she moves to Saudi Arabia or Iran for another reality check.

Maybe Biden can get something done. But since Russia is heavily involved in Ukraine, and they don't even show concern with removing their own soldiers' bodies from the battlefield, I'm not sure if Brittney is high on their list of concerns.

Last time i checked, this woman 'Hated the USA'... complained about Injustice against Black ppl, against Women, Against Lesbians, etc.

I think she'll be happier in Russia~

Never-the-less, we got more pressing issues than worrying about a Whining Lesbian Basketball player who hates the USA~!

There was a story out in March involving a prisoner swap.

I want to care I wished I cared but I simply do not. BLM and the woke politics made me just not care 1 bit about basketball and basketball players. Next time don't break the law in Russia. break russian laws pay russian prices.

Last time I checked one has the freedom of speech to say what they want. That is not hating America that his hating perceived injustice. Regardless we do not have a loyalty oath. I may not agree with everything she says but I will defend her right to say it.


We are a big country with a way too big federal government. They can multitask. The US government says she is wrongly detained. All Americans should support American citizens being wrongfully detained abroad regardless of the persons politics.

If she broke the law, she’ll have to deal with it like any other person facing charges.





The difference here is, Tom Brady would have a better chance coming back home versus Lebron James, because this country is racists, but what's new.

Oh, she'll eventually make it back to the US. Then she can write a book about her experiences in Russia. I think it should be titled "WNBA= Whoa, Now Brittney's Arrested?"

I’m very surprised the left isn’t outraged by Griner being held.

I can never predict what will upset the left and what they will just ignore. They make no sense at all.

Apparently, they don’t care at all about Griner. If they really wanted her/him released, they could’ve put a lot of pressure on Biden’s administration by now.

They could’ve cut a deal easily with the Russians.
