Australia wanted to 'humiliate' Novak Djokovic, says player's father

by News Update

Novak Djokovic’s dad has urged people to “rise up” against the decision to bar the world’s best tennis player from entering Australia.

Srdjan Djokovic said the Australian government wanted to “humiliate” his son in a row over playing in the country and says he’s being held “in prison”.

The world’s best player was barred from competing in the Australian Open and is set to be deported on Monday after entering the country without the necessary vaccine waiver.

I wonder when he gets a shower in prison if the other cons will shout 'New Balls Please'…😏😂

Just how they treat us 365 days a year. 🙄 Smoke and mirrors, complete trickery and lies. " Mr Morrison had said he accepted the Victorian government's decision to grant Djokovic and other tennis players medical exemptions. On Tuesday, he said federal authorities, who control the borders, would "act in accordance" with the state's decision as "that's how it works".

Freedom against new world order. Australia is new world order pet project. It started as a prison colony and its ending as one. Shame for Aussies to tolerate an evil globalist regime thats in violation of human rights and Nuremberg code.

Meanwhile Australia is seeing the most rapid increase in Omicron cases anywhere in the world. Nature has a gift from the mice; a big F U to Australia's draconian "containment" approach.

Australia trying to force subservience

Chowkin McNuggitt January 6, 2022 - 9:52 PM

He humiliated himself by not being vaccinated and trying to enter a country that requires it. Make a stupid move and look stupid.

Think about the ballboys and girls

Based Grandpa January 6, 2022 - 10:11 PM

So the Aussies inadvertently created a martyr, a new spokesperson for the righteousness (cause)
Brilliant move by the Commies in Oz
