Superstar Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is one of the more interesting people among his peers in the NFL. The outspoken 38-year-old has never been shy about telling the media and people in general his genuine thoughts about…well, anything.

During the 2021 season, Rodgers became an establishment media target when he contracted the Chinese coronavirus (COVID-19) after saying he was immunized, even though he wasn’t vaccinated with the media pre-approved vaccines. And there was very good reason he didn’t take the all-but-mandated government injection.

In the August 27th episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, Rodgers explained to Rogan his process during the beginning of the 2021 NFL season and what he went through in terms of his decision not to get vaccinated.

What people didn’t know, especially at the time, is that Rodgers is apparently allergic to a specific ingredient in the mRNA vaccine, Polyethylene glycol (PEG). The Johnson & Johnson vaccine had just been pulled from the market for blood clots, so Rodgers sought a homeopathic alternative and was given oral treatments to minimize risks associated with contracting COVID.

That didn’t matter to the NFL, according to Rodgers.

After describing the discrimination unvaccinated players had to go through because of the ludicrous rules the NFL had in place, Rodgers told Rogan about a conversation he had with “the league.”

They knew my vaccination status from the start, as did all of my teammates. There was a lot of talk about ‘I endangered my teammates’ and, you know, ‘I lied to my teammates and my team’ from day one that I returned, which was July 25, probably, of 2021. They knew where I was at. Everybody did.

Also, on the side, I had an appeal going with the NFL. Cause I said, ‘Look, here’s my health issues. Here’s the protocol I went through. Here’s the research behind it.’ I gave them 500 pages of research from a number of people that put together case reviewed studies around homeopathy and immunizations and safety in them and, also, the efficacy of them. And then I had a conversation with the league, and the league said in this conversation — and this is when I knew my appeal was definitely not gonna happen — was they said, ‘It’s not possible for a vaccinated player,' person sorry, 'to contract or transmit COVID if they’ve been vaccinated.’ And I said, ‘You gotta be kidding me. Cause I showed up and five people, non-players, five people fully vaxxed are out with COVID. So what are you talking about?’

And he said, ‘You’re a conspiracy theorist.’

If Rodgers comments are true — and there’s no reason to think they aren’t — then we know, at least during the 2021 season, the NFL fully “followed the science,” which we now know was wrong, and that breakthrough cases are quite common, if not the norm now.


All that being said, in a separate clip, Rodgers and Rogan discussed how the establishment media and the Biden regime have attempted to change the narrative and history. Rodgers isn’t having any of it.

You wanna test everybody everyday? Cool. That’s fine. You want to keep people say, if that the benchmark for it. But as we look back now, let’s not revise history. Let’s not revise history on what actually happened and what was said. Because what was said was, ‘You get the vax, you can’t spread it or contract it.’

“And no one seems upset that that was a lie,” Rogan responded.

A few short seconds later, Rodgers repeated a line that President Joe Biden said on September 9, 2021.

“Pandemic of the unvaccinated,” Rodgers said.

Here’s what Biden said during his aforementioned address on “Fighting the COVID-19 Pandemic”:

This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated.  And it’s caused by the fact that despite America having an unprecedented and successful vaccination program, despite the fact that for almost five months free vaccines have been available in 80,000 different locations, we still have nearly 80 million Americans who have failed to get the shot.

All I can say about all this is to repeat what Rodgers told Rogan — “Let’s not revise history on what actually happened and what was said.”
