NFL All-Pro Buries Biden in Response to Brittney Griner Prisoner Exchange, Quickly Backpedals

Apparently not even one of the best players in the NFL can protect you from the culture mob mentality on Twitter.

The Dallas Cowboys’ best player, by virtually any measure, confronted President Joe Biden over WNBA star Brittney Griner’s reported prisoner swap for Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout before quickly resigning like he was deep in a Cover 3 .

All-Pro linebacker Micah Parsons, considered by many to be the best young linebacker in the NFL, first pointed out the absurdity of the Biden administration’s deal, which does not include the return of retired Marine Paul Whelan, who has been in the NFL since 2018 Russia being detained US officials said the allegations were false.

“Wait, no!!” Parsons tweeted Thursday. “We left a Marine?!! Hell no.”

This is a very crucial point. While no one really knows what was feasible in the negotiations between US and Russian officials, the fact that the government chose to bring back a professional athlete who (knowingly or unknowingly) violated Russian law, rather than a man, who served this country, the utmost At least bad optics.

And Parsons had every right to question that given his massive platform as a feature act for the NFL’s feature team.

But don’t let the mob hear that. When he followed up with a tougher tweet — this time aimed at Biden — he faced a wave of criticism on Twitter and soon deleted the post.

“We still haven’t voted for you!” Parsons had said in a retweet of Biden’s announcement regarding Griner.

This is also a more than fair feeling. No one — Biden, former President Donald Trump, or anyone else — is “entitled” to a vote. They have to earn it, and if Biden didn’t deserve Parsons, that should be it.

Oh, it wasn’t. After deleting the tweet burying Biden, Parsons issued some explanatory/apologetic tweets.

“My last tweet wasn’t a shot at Brittney Griner,” he said. “I am super happy that she is back home as she should be. I only have one family that served and it’s crazy to me that the President wouldn’t bring him home too. I’m the furthest from a Trump supporter, but I’m not a Biden fan either.”

While it’s not clear how a tweet about not voting for Biden could ever be construed as “shot at Brittney Griner,” the backlash was enough for Parsons to delete that tweet.

“I just spoke to some people I respect and trust. I should have been more knowledgeable on the subject and not tweeting out of emotion for my family and others who have served. I apologize for that,” the linebacker said in another tweet.

“While what I say about the attempts to bring Ret Marine Paul Whelan home is true, the best result was achieved,” he said. “I’m praying that Mr. Whelan will come home, but I’m so happy for Brittney and her family. I’m not too proud to admit when I’ve made a mistake.”

Again, what error? The mistake of insulting the mob?

A cursory look at his tweet replies shows that many people feel Parsons has nothing to apologize for:

For now, Parson, who is just 23, will lead the Cowboys’ defense as the first pass rusher on Sunday when Dallas hosts the Houston Texans. There is no indication that his tweet will have any further impact.

Given how quickly he was able to break away from that, maybe he should experiment a little more with getting into zone coverage this week.
