Aaron Rogers Interview and How Athletes are Standing Up
The Chloroquine Wars Part XCI
“Life is not a spectator sport. If you’re going to spend your whole life in the grandstand just watching what goes on, in my opinion you’re wasting your life.” -Jackie Robinson
This is one of those interviews that you may want to watch now before it gets banned from YouTube. The all seeing eye is ever vigilant, and jealous of your attention spectrum.
If you’re not familiar with Aaron Rodgers, he is one of the all-time greats in professional football, holding more than a dozen NFL records. He was the MVP of the 2010 Super Bowl Championship Green Bay Packers squad. And judging by his twitter profile, a Bitcoiner who isn’t always going to behave the way he’s supposed to.
Rodgers reveals that he is just the second unvaccinated NFL player to test positive for COVID-19.
“I realize that I’m in the cross-hairs of the Woke mob…”
That’s the first important moment in the interview. Rodgers jumps right out and says in so many words what is obvious to anyone thinking clearly: there is a Mao-esque mob tasked with ferreting out and harming the image of any public figure not pushing the narrative. He continues…
Now, I agree with Alex Berenson that Aaron Rodger’s statement in the initial press conference was misleading. Alex calls it a “cheap move”, but who can blame the prey for dodging the predator? He is the leader of a team, and it was entirely unfair that he was put in a position that would affect his team (his job performance) negatively for making the best decision for himself. Given what all else Rodgers just did and said honestly, I’m going to give him a pass (pun intended).
And while he didn’t say it, I think his “immunization” was in fact hydroxychloroquine, given his description of its centuries old use and use in those who are immunocompromised.
From there, Rodgers drops bomb after bomb after bomb after bomb. Like it was casual. Exactly what you’d expect from the only quarterback to post six consecutive seasons with a 100+ QB passer rating (no, I don’t know how that’s defined, but it’s a record). He calls out parts of the medical community for factually wrong statements, calls out the NFL’s unscientific policies and health security theater (including social segregation and a yellow wristband), and then he reveals that he chose early outpatient medical treatment that sounds a whole lot like the protocol used by Dr. Brian Tyson, the honey badger of urgent care clinic physicians: monoclonal antibodies, ivermectin, zinc, vitamins and HCQ. He said that after 48 hours he was “feeling incredible”. He thanked his medical staff and Joe Rogan for their advice and friendship.
Rodgers remains largely relaxed after an initial moment that looks like an honest feeling of guilt over playing the “immunized” game with the media. His body language is that of an honest human being just trying to do the best for himself.
This is not about being “anti-vaxx” in general. It’s about basic bodily autonomy and discernment of medical treatment options. For speaking up and questioning the medical narratives in the locker room, many of Rodger’s teammates have thanked him personally.
