(Big League Politics) – National Football League (NFL) player Aaron Rodgers has recently come under fire by many of the COVID-19 obsessed crowd, stirring controversy after testing positive before a Sunday Packers-Chiefs game. Two days after the news he tested positive for COVID-19 Aaron Rodgers went on the air to tell his side of the story.
The Packers quarterback appeared on “The Pat McAfee Show” to speak about why he decided to not take the experimental COVID-19 jab.
“I realize I’m in the crosshairs of the woke mob right now, so before my final nail gets put in my cancel-culture casket, I think I’d like to set the record straight on some of the blatant lies that are out there about myself right now,” Rodgers began.
Rodgers said that there is a “witch hunt” going on in the media over who chooses to not take a COVID-19 shot and that he didn’t “lie” during an August press conference when he told a reporter he was “immunized” for the illness.
“It wasn’t some sort of ruse or lie, it was the truth,” Rodgers said.
The football player also said that had there would have been follow-up questions he gladly would have further clarified his vaccination status.
“I would’ve said, ‘Look, I’m not some sort of anti-vax, flat-earther. I am somebody who is a critical thinker, you guys know me, I march to the beat of my own drum, I believe strongly in bodily autonomy,’ ” Rodgers said.
“I believe strongly in bodily autonomy and the ability to make choices for your body, not to have to acquiesce to some woke culture or crazed group of individuals who say you have to do something. Health is not a one-size-fits-all for everybody.”
"My desire to immunize myself was what was best for my body & that's why this is so important to me. I made a decision that was in my best interest for my body.. I'm not telling somebody to get vaccinated or not get vaccinated" ~@AaronRodgers12#PatMcAfeeShowLIVE pic.twitter.com/AyUkhyvuzC

When asked why he didn’t comply with draconian NFL protocols forcing masks during press conferences, many of which are specifically targeted as a sort of punishment to those who refuse to comply, he quoted Martin Luther King Jr. and criticized the ludicrous policy as being “not based in science.”
“The great MLK said, you have a moral obligation to object to unjust rules and rules that make no sense,” Rodgers told McAfee.
Rogers also reportedly thanked Joe Rogan for useful health advice that he has offered in wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and said that he is “taking [monoclonal] antibodies, Ivermectin, zinc, Vitamin C and D, HCQ” and feels incredible.
“I’ve been doing a lot of stuff that he recommended in his podcasts and on the phone to me, and I’m going to have the best immunity possible now based on the 2.5 million-person study from Israel that the people who get COVID and recover have the most robust immunity.”
“I’m thankful for people like Joe stepping up and using their voice,” Rodgers added.
