Left-wing anthem hater Brittney Griner spent her first #Thanksgiving in a Russian Penal Colony

Former WNBA player Brittney Griner, who sang the National Anthem against the United States, likely disappeared into the great abyss of a Russian Penal Colony, never to be heard from again for several years. It was expected to happen immediately after a Russian court upheld his conviction. And trust me, life is going to be so hard and uncomfortable for Brittney, she’s probably going to pay millions to hear the US anthem one more time, right? Sometimes you don’t realize what’s really there until it’s gone. And many spoiled American athletes don’t understand or remember what real “struggle” really is…Brittney finds that out the hard way.

And now he is spending his first Thanksgiving in the Russian Gulch.

A member of the rock band Pussy Riot describes her time in a forced labor camp for women in Russia: The place can best be described as a harsh, Soviet-style camp. The prisoners were all housed in two large army-style barracks – each holding between 50 and 100 men. These barracks were built during the Soviet era – I think in the 1920s.

Inside, there are only rows of beds, a nightstand and a stool. There is also a toilet, but you cannot use it because there is no central sewage system. We used to go out to the place called “Chukhur”, sometimes in winter when it was -20C. In general, the climate in that remote swampy place surrounded by forest was simply terrible – cold winters and midges in the summer. In addition, there was a nuclear facility about 70 km away [44 miles] away from our camps.

The management was very strict with us – there were rumors of beatings around the colony, although I did not personally witness it. More often there were fights between the prisoners themselves. Mass beatings are a feature of men’s camps, commonly referred to as “black colonies”.

There was no torture at FGU IK-14, but anyone who disobeyed prison rules would be punished by being sent to “shiza”. [Russian abbreviation for schizophrenia] – single cell.
The daily routine was also strict – we were woken up at 06:00 in the morning, and five minutes later we would do our morning exercises. We had breakfast at 07:00 in the morning, then we worked until 13:00 when we had lunch.

After that there was more work until 4pm followed by dinner. At 22:00, the lights went out.”

The US claims they know exactly where he is, but I find this questionable. There’s a former head of the KGB running Russia, where all they do is cloak and dagger, and it seems this incompetent Biden admin is always a few steps behind everything but ballot stuffing. It seems to be the only thing they spend energy on.

CNN reports:

The US State Department is aware of the whereabouts of jailed WNBA star Brittney Griner, chief deputy spokesman Vedant Patel said Wednesday.

Patel said that they know the location of Griner, who was transferred from Moscow to the penitentiary, through lawyers, and “officially, the Russian Federation has not yet submitted any official notification regarding such an action of a US citizen, and we express our strong objection to this. “

“Our embassy and our mission in Moscow have continued to press for more information about his transfer and current location, and those inquiries are ongoing,” Patel said in a briefing.

He said he was unaware of anyone from the embassy being able to speak with Griner after his transfer.

Remember: Griner was convicted of intentionally smuggling drugs into Russia and sentenced in August to nine years in prison in a case that raised concerns about his use as a political pawn in Russia’s war against Ukraine.

Khimki city court judge Anna Sotnikova issued a verdict and fined Griner 1 million rubles, or about $16,400. According to him, the court took into account Griner’s partial confession of guilt, remorse for his deed, health condition and charitable activities. The prosecutors requested that he be sentenced to 9.5 years in prison.

Before the sentencing, Griner apologized to the court and asked for leniency in his emotional speech.

What CNN didn’t mention is that Griner pleaded guilty to a crime, so I’m not sure how this is suddenly “political,” but he couldn’t have picked a worse time to commit a crime in Russia. .

Faced with a proxy war with the US, why is Putin doing everything to help bumbling Joe Biden? Of course it wouldn’t, and anyone who thinks so is an idiot.

I have a feeling Brittney would give anything to be home, eating turkey, with the National Anthem playing in the background.
