A Twitter personality asked Brittany Griner about her anti-American attitude while she was at the Dallas Airport. Her WNBA provided security detail pushed him away and characterized the incident as a hate attack.

No. Asking questions, even inconvenient ones, is what the press does. Griner took a public stance on a political topic, and she doesn’t get a free pass that prevents her from having to answer questions about that stance.

Likewise, Mr Stein is just as much a member of the press as a reporter for the NY Times. There is nothing that says one must be a member of the government approved propaganda Corps in order to be a member of the press.

Furthermore, anyone whether they are the press or not shouldn’t be physically attacked for asking a celebrity a question. The employees of the WNBA attacked a member of the public ina public place because they were asking questions. Nothing about Mr Stein’s questions merited a physical response. At no time did he present a physical threat to Griner’s person, so I don’t see where the physical response was legally justified. Would the WNBA’s security personnel have pushed a reporter from the propaganda corps? Do they feel justified because he wasn’t asking the right questions? I wonder just how deep the WNBA’s pockets are.

Small quibble, DM.

…”she doesn’t get a free pass that prevents her from having to answer questions about that stance.”

She does, actually, as does anyone who has enough self-control to keep their mouths shut.

What she doesn’t have, is a right to be free from being questioned about her stance, especially when she’s in a public place.

    When I’m asked something by someone I don’t care to interact with, I just smile, it tends to piss them off. But you are correct, everyone has the right to ask questions in a public place, as it’s my right not to answer. Just smile. :-))))))

Stop calling that a she. Griner is of the male persuasion. And fuck britteny griner.

There is going to be a come to Jesus meeting with security services here soon and its been brewing ever since the Pinkertons were hired to murder strikers.

Of course they called it racism. Heaven forbid. Its like asking Jane Fonda why she’s such a screaming witch
