Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has a history of voicing his distaste for the “woke PC” social standards imposed on him by Liberals. When it came to forced Covid vaccines, nothing was different.
Back in August, Rodgers reported that he was immunized, which everyone assumed meant he’d received the Covid vaccine. However, after recently testing positive for Covid-19, it came to light that he actually had received homeopathic treatment instead. This of course has resulted in heated backlash from the media and various public figures claiming he “lied” and even going so far as to blame Rodgers’ fiancée, Shailene Woodley, for turning him on to homeopathic remedies.
Everyone is up in arms over Aaron supposedly lying to the public and not blindly conforming to the standards set for him by the Left, however, he never confirmed that he got a vaccine for Covid… Liberals just assumed everyone would approach this disease the same way they wanted them to. God forbid someone chooses their own path to maintain their personal health, right? What about privacy surrounding your medical health records? Nope, don’t even think about that either.
In early October, after scoring a touchdown against his team’s NFC North rivals, Rodgers was met with obscenities being yelled at him from the Chicago Bears’ crowd. Rodgers yelled back in response, “I’ve owned you all my f–ing life! I own you. I still own you.”
Following this incident that blew up all over the internet, Rodgers was asked about it on The Pat McAfee Show. He was surprised it garnered as much media attention as it did given the commonality of these interactions between players and fans. Rodgers did not hesitate to blame the media for overblowing this story, saying, “That is the state of our media… And really our culture, not just our media… This woke PC culture.”
He then continued on to elaborate on his feelings towards how our culture has evolved: “There’s a PC woke culture that exists, and there’s a cancel culture at the same time, and it’s based on people’s own feelings of maybe personal [misery] or distaste for their own situations or life or just the enjoyment of holding other people down underneath their thumb.”
After living in a world where every aspect of his personal life is magnified and criticized across the media, Rodgers should be no stranger to receiving mass public attention over personal matters. Despite this, Rodgers is reportedly furious that his vaccination status was publically leaked and his privacy compromised.
Rodgers is a great leader both on and off the field, a quality that is exemplified by him not bowing to media pressure and instead remaining true to himself and his beliefs, all while not being afraid to voice dissent.
