NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers is one of the best players of his generation and is being hailed as a future NFL Hall of Famer as he enters the twilight of his career. However, the woke fans of the sport have begun to jump on Aaron Rodgers ever since he promoted a medicine plan to cure Covid that he learned from Podcaster Joe Rogan.
In an interview with Pat McAfee, Rodgers tore down the ideology that says that the words of scientists mustn’t ever be questioned. He goes on to drop this awesome quote about those who treat today’s science as more of a dogma than an ever-changing landscape.

“If science can’t be questioned, it’s not science anymore, it’s propaganda and that’s the truth.”
“When somebody comes out with a scientific study, alright, what do they always say? They say it’s peer-reviewed. What does that mean? It means that people in the same field have gone through it and questioned the hypothesis and questioned the research and looked it up to see ‘does this research stand up.’ That’s what science is all about. It’s about forming hypotheses, questioning those, testing those, and then releasing the results.
When did science become this blind agreement, and then not having any debate over what can actually heal people and work for people? It makes no sense to me.”
Obviously, many who oppose Aaron will begin screaming for the tallest place they can find to say Rodgers is undermining doctors and is a rampant anti-vaccine activist. He made sure that clarify later in the interview that this was not the case.
“At the core, I don’t have a problem if somebody is vaccinated. Okay, it’s your body, your choice.”
“I made a decision that was in the best interest of my body and that’s what it should be. There should be the freedom to choose what’s in your best interest, not mandates sweeping, the disregard of people who have preexisting conditions or compromised immune systems.”
Rodgers continues to show no fear when it comes to the woke mob, something that has worked out for many high-profile celebrities recently. Dave Chappelle has seen a massive career resurgence, partially due to the storm that he endured when the left tried to cancel his Netflix specials.
Just like those other celebrities, Rodgers will be fine. If anything, some people are becoming his fan even more through this saga, as he pushes back against the safe narrative that many athletes follow.
It also, seems that Rodgers has found a particularly sore spot in American culture that his interviews have continued to demonstrate. Many in this country have lost the ability to have any civil disagreement. It seems that often, people look at Rodgers’ comments, which contrast with their own, and decide that they hate the man who spoke his mind. It would go a massive way in healing our political divide if we could again learn to have civil discussions over our most divisive opinions.
