Celebrities are expected to toe the Democrat party line.
Those who don’t often get skewered in the press.
And an NFL superstar uttered four words that made Democrats furious.
Superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers has become persona non grata on the left.
His refusal to take the COVID vaccine enraged sports journalists, which lean heavily liberal.
In 2016, sports journalists voted for Hillary Clinton at a higher percentage than did political journalists.
Rodgers was ripped up and down even though he explained that he was allergic to the ingredients in the mRNA vaccines, and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine had been recalled when Rodgers was considering getting the jab.
Now Rodgers is angering the left by criticizing his home state of California.
During an interview with liberal comedian Bill Maher, Rodgers said that the “state’s going to sh*t” because of poor leadership.
Rodgers elaborated, “State’s going to sh*t, but I’m hanging on…I grew up in a small town, very little cases [of COVID] up in Chico, California, but all the small businesses? F*cking gone.”
The COVID regime totally decimated small businesses throughout the state, and the rules were entirely arbitrary.
For example, restaurants were not allowed to have outdoor dining, but movie productions were allowed to dine outside.
Meanwhile, Governor Gavin Newsom attended an indoor dinner at a posh restaurant while businesses had to shut down.
Rodgers elaborated on his frustration over the COVID rules, elaborating, “I think there’s a lot of people that believe that you should have your own decision-making on your own medical decisions…My thing is I have an issue with the hypocrisy in society in general and I know you do as well, but abortion has been a hot topic, right. And especially after Roe v. Wade got overturned and sent back to the states, or whatever. I don’t believe the government should have any control over what we do with our bodies. As much as I might lean more pro-life, I don’t want the government to tell me I can’t smoke a cigar, I can’t have a drink of alcohol, I can’t choose my own medical decisions. And if I’m a woman, don’t f*cking tell me what to do. Like whether or not I agree with what you decide to do, who cares? And the government should not have a decision that infringes upon my own personal freedoms.”
Although Rodgers did not articulate the pro-life position, he called out the hypocrisy of the left.
The same people that have howled “my body, my choice” were demanding people take an indefinite amount of experimental shots while shutting down their businesses and locking themselves inside until the authorities say it’s okay to come out.
The two years of the COVID regime were truly psychotic, and California was one of the worst offenders.
It’s easy to see why Rodgers is saying that the state has gone to hell.
