Freedom according to the antivaccinationists. Cartoon of 08/01/2022 in CTXT.
These were two of last week’s top stories, one provoked several discussions and the other a lot of laughter, although to be fair both provoked hundreds of jokes.
The move by Novak Djokovic, who ya la lio in June 2020, for not wanting to say if he is vaccinated and has been left half stranded in Australia, has provoked one of the different mix of the various denialist, denialist, right-wingers have even charged antivaccine have even charged against their adored Rafa Nadal
Even someone from Vox, such as Isidoro Sevilla, the party’s national head of internal communication, has said that the tennis player is a“modern-day hero” and a“symbol of the fight for real freedom all over the planet“.
The tennis player’s father says that his son, the Jesulín of Serbia, is the “leader of the free world” and that he is little less than Spartacus or Jesus Christ. To make things a little more complicated, the tennis player’s lawyers they say who tested positive on 16 December and attended two public events, without a mask and knowing that he was carrying SARS-CoV-2.
On the other hand, there were those who said that if Djokovic had arrived in Australia on a boat he would have been much better off, like this well-known creator and disseminator of lies and bullshit of all kinds
These ignorant people, who also take the opportunity to bring out their racism and xenophobia at the slightest opportunity, don’t know that Australia has one of the worst and most racist immigration policies.
Australia does not have a Guantanamo, it has two. One on the island of Nauru in the Central Pacific, 4,000 km away and the other on Manus Island in Papua New Guinea, 3,000 km from Melbourne.
These “Australian “Guantánamos are known for reports of murders, suicides, hunger strikes, mistreatment and sexual assaults on people “under the protection” of the Australian government.
The other side of the laughter came from “the drunk bear” and other characters from the Three Kings parade in Cádiz. As they say, stick with those who make you laugh. If possible in a healthy way.
