To hell with facts…the authoritarian Australian health minister has decided that the unvaccinated must be punished.
Another day, another story about how world leaders are attempting to shame, degrade, and segregate individuals who choose not to accept a COVID jab. It doesn’t matter who you are, or even if you have natural immunity, if you don’t get the jab…you must be punished.
Here is the shocking story of tennis star Novak Djokovic, an unvaccinated Serbian with natural immunity who, like the unvaccinated Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rogers (who also has natural immunity), is finding out first-hand how quickly the left will turn on you and ignore the incredible contributions you’ve made to your sport simply because you refuse to accept the politically correct jab.
Daily Mail reports – Djokovic, one of the greatest tennis players of all time, has garnered headlines in recent years for his stance on Covid vaccines that has enhanced his reputation as a polarizing figure.
He first spoke out against vaccination back in April 2020, when the first wave of Covid was spreading and before a jab had even been developed, to say he was not in favor of getting one.
Further controversy came in June when he hosted a Balkans tennis tournament with no mask-wearing or social distancing measures in place that led to several players – including himself – getting infected with Covid.
As vaccines were rolled out last year and travel rules relaxed for those who had taken the jab, Djokovic remained silent about his own status – leading many to suspect he had not been jabbed and would not be allowed to play at the Australian Open.
But come December, his name was announced on lists for both the Open and the warm-up ATP Cup – with Tennis Australia revealing earlier this month that he had been granted a medical exemption.
On Wednesday, after flying to Australia to defend his title at the Australian Open, the (unvaccinated) world-famous tennis player Novak Djokovic was locked down inside a hotel currently being used as a detention facility on the Australian border in Melbourne.
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison claimed Djokovic was denied entry into Australia because of an issue with his visa.
After being held inside a poorly-kept facility that houses asylum seekers and refugees, Djokovic finally received the federal judge’s ruling today that his visa would be reinstated and he can stay in Australia for the tournament.
After being released into the country, Djokovic expressed his gratitude in a Tweet, writing, “I’m pleased and grateful that the Judge overturned my visa cancellation. Despite all that has happened, I want to stay and try to compete”.
“For now I cannot say more but THANK YOU all for standing with me through all this and encouraging me to stay strong,” he said in a follow-up tweet.
For now I cannot say more but THANK YOU all for standing with me through all this and encouraging me to stay strong 🙏🙏🙏🙏

Immediately following the tennis star’s release, fans gathered in the streets to celebrate the win and show support for him. They surrounded a vehicle with blacked-out windows which they believed to be carrying Djokovic.
Earlier today Australian Immigration Minister Alex Hawke unilaterally canceled his visa, only 3 days before the Australian Open is set to begin.
Conservative Treehouse – Under Australian law, Immigration Minister Hawke has almost unfettered powers to cancel a visa making any legal challenge to the decision very difficult. The official statement from Alex Hawke is available here.
Today I exercised my power under section 133C(3) of the Migration Act to cancel the visa held by Mr Novak Djokovic on health and good order grounds, on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so. This decision followed orders by the Federal Circuit and Family Court on 10 January 2022, quashing a prior cancellation decision on procedural fairness grounds.
In making this decision, I carefully considered information provided to me by the Department of Home Affairs, the Australian Border Force, and Mr. Djokovic. The Morrison Government is firmly committed to protecting Australia’s borders, particularly in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Following days of delay, Mr. Hawke finally announced his decision under Migration Act which gives the minister full discretion to deport a person. Mr. Hawke said the cancellation of Djokovic’s visa was made on the grounds of “health and good order” as well as on the basis of the “public interest”.
Watch the report here:
Djokovic may not be able to compete in the Australian Open, but he will go down in history as a hero to individuals worldwide fighting for the right to choose whether or not they accept the jab.
