Cherelle and Brittney Griner are learning a valuable lesson, but we can only wait and see if that lesson will register with them. America is unquestionably the greatest country on God’s green earth and the greatest nation that has ever existed. We should all cherish our good fortune for being American citizens. But America’s government, like all governments, is wholly inefficient. It’s the nature of the beast, and something we should all be aware of.
We can only imagine if Griner will sing a different song about America when – or if – she ever gets back here. She’s become an obvious political pawn, with Russia’s war in Ukraine continuing to rage and the Biden Administration’s tepid but consistent denunciation of Russian aggression. Would Griner have had such a problem here in the states for committing a crime, or would she have received due process?
