(Big League Politics) – Australia’s quasi-fascist government is moving to deport the top ranked professional tennis player in the world, Novak Djokovic, after the Serbian reigning champion of the Australian Open was stripped of a medical exemption of the nation’s universal vaccine mandate for entry.
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced that Djokovic would not be permitted to defend his Australian Open title, with the nation’s government stripping Djokovic of his travel visa.
Mr Djokovic’s visa has been cancelled. Rules are rules, especially when it comes to our borders. No one is above these rules. Our strong border policies have been critical to Australia having one of the lowest death rates in the world from COVID, we are continuing to be vigilant.

Djokovic’s attorneys have filed a legal injunction to stop his deportation, with the tennis champion seemingly detained at Australia’s Tullamarine Airport for twelve hours.
Djokovic had previously applied for and received a medical exemption to the vaccine mandate, only for the ruling Australian regime to rip it away in response to public criticism of their hypocrisy and arbitrary standards.
Djokovic’s father, Srdjan, has indicated that his son is being held in a room guarded by two policemen which no one can enter. He’s indicated that his son’s supporters are willing to “fight in the streets” to free Novak, who is considered among the greatest tennis players in history. The row amounts to an act of deception on the part of Australia’s government, which indicated it was fully willing to allow Djokovic to compete before barring him in a politically calculated gesture.
Djokovic has won the men’s singles of the Australian Open three straight times, raising serious questions about the competitive integrity of any tournament which bans the longstanding champion.
Australia’s coronavirus regime, considered one of the most brutal and authoritarian in the world, has shocked citizens of the democratic world. The nation’s police have brutalized protestors, forcibly locked citizens in their homes, with provincial and national leaders frequently demonizing the small percentage of Australian citizens.
