But the good thing for Novak is that no matter what happens, he is going to be looked at as even more of a leader for holding his ground on not getting the jab.
As the evidence continues to pile up that the experimental MRNA therapies pretending to be vaccines are the single biggest public health disaster in the history of mankind, those who coerced and benefitted from them only have two options: slink away and hope no one finds them, or; double down on their criminal behavior, in a final attempt to simply convince everyone that if you repeat a lie over & over again, it becomes reality. Alas, reality does not care about their lies. And those of us who are forced to deal with the wreckage of their criminal behavior, with spouses, children, siblings and parents permanently maimed or killed have declared war on them, with the army growing daily. We're coming for you and we aren't going to stop until the entire world is watching your trial for violating the Nuremberg Code. Djokovic is one of the few young, professional athletes who has maintained his credibility throughout this mess. Hats off to him. The day will come when he can play anywhere he wants. We need to take out the trash before he can do so.
Can't he just sneak across the Mexican border with his rackets, catch the Texas bus to NYC, and demand temporary asylum from the USTA?
It’s no longer the USOpen. It’s the USInvitational; an exhibition tournament at best.
This is the pinnacle of woke capitalism. Maybe it’s to be expected from a tournament that promoted BLM a couple years ago (already?)
The US gifted Moderna - a company that has never produced a successful product - $1B in research money and $1.5B for product. They turned around and sponsored the USInvitational with that money. The BS “rules” that they are imposing are keeping Djokovic out. It’s a sickness far worse than Covid-19.
This take was great!
Good interview with Djokovic. His temperament and measured answers through the interview were impressive. The interviewer was excellent as well. Best part was the absolute lack of hyperbolic drivel on either part. Practical Observation: There's a lot of nuance here. Whether or not the CDC entry policy is valid remains the real issue(of course, it's boring when a guy doesn't sperg out like Robespierre vs. the king over vaccines). The current policy is: "Noncitizens who are nonimmigrants and seeking to enter the United States by air are required to show proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before boarding a flight to the United States from a foreign country. If you are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19, you will NOT be allowed to board a flight to the United States, unless you meet the criteria for an exception under the Proclamation and CDC’s Amended Order. A booster dose is not needed to meet this requirement." (source:https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/proof-of-vaccination.html#noncitizen). As an aside, Serbia is not a country on the visa waiver list, so entry medical requires more than just a passport, covid vaccine or no.
👍🏻 On point. Thanks for your SUBSTACK posts. Stay awesome
Will there ever be the realization that the broad risks of COVID to the general populace were wildly exaggerated from day one? At the end of the day, all cause mortality doesn't lie...
I have nothing but respect for Novak. He is a man of character, principles, and determination. Shame on the American government and curses on the fools who are implementing these insane and absurd policies.
The US “Open”. Brought to you by Moderna. FTM. 🤔
No such thing as covid
Thank you for covering this. The US Open and Billie Jean King sold their souls to Moderna for sponsorship money. Novak was allowed to play in 2020 and 2021, but not this year. Time to boycott: https://yuribezmenov.substack.com/p/update-on-novak-djokovic
It certainly is the individuals choice but are there societal obligations, for instance in vaccinating against smallpox, which led to the eradication in the late 70's of a disease that killed 300m people and 3 out of every 10 people who were infected?
Another confirmation that our "Public Health" bureaucracy is a joke. Unfortunately it's not funny as these blundering policies have come from a political base rather than science or medicine causing millions of deaths. But hey, this was the plan all along. Pray, plan, prepare and RESIST.
Staggering to see so may "Educational" establishments demanding a vaccine to attend. Unreal.
My 2 cents on this one:
It seems to me, that, Mr. Dojkovic is having too good life with no real problems. Maybe he should take a “career break”, some “executive” position in manual processing of gravel may help him to focus. It is his choice not to be vaccinated and at the same time, it is the US administration capacity to set rules for entering the country. Dojkovic does not fit, so he should either comply or take few days off instead of the tournament, frankly who cares? It is not fair to make an exception from a (no matter how stupid) rule, just because someone’s name is Dojkovic. His “hole in the back” is the same as hole of millions of other travellers going this summer to the US.
By the way, Serbia has “mandatory vaccination program” for other illnesses (https://immunizationdata.who.int/pages/schedule-by-country/srb.html) and I just wonder, how Mr. Dojkovic stands there. And I am sure (well lazy to research that) that there are many places where you are not allowed to travel unless you have vaccination of some sort. Generally accepted in those cases, but for some reason COVID drives certain people nuts.
I come from a country with mandatory medical insurance (a form of an income tax), so technically everyone has access to the hospital, should it be needed. COVID has ruined this system, because virtually half of each hospital was converted into a COVID centre. The shot was not supposed to protect one from getting COVID, but to reduce the chance to end up in a hospital, which were already overcrowded by those not vaccinated and/or by those likely to have to go the hard way.
Taking the shot was a “community service”, while accepting certain “non-zero risk”. Those who avoided shot (outside of medical reasons) took a free ride as a “black passengers” of the system. Not taking “the risk” but requiring medical service should things go wrong.
Hence Dojkovic is nothing but the “black passenger”. Would he have gotten COVID, a formation of helicopters would be flying around to provide VIP service and no more hero talks about “control over his body” (I guess, everyone is hero while healthy, but that attitude may change under slow suffocation).
Does it make sense to insist on vaccination today? Probably not, the pandemic is over. Except of Dojkovic, everyone else is either vaccinated, got COVID or death and COVID has changed into another mild respiratory diseasses and is going to stay. The US rules should change, but not because of some US Open game...
It is embarassing - I'm in Australia and they way he was treated here was disgusting but it also showed what a lot of the population is really like, not the image our lovely tourist marketing portrays eh ?
Public servants - when they make a mistake what do they do....double down.
