"Unvaccinated" Novak Djokovic Can't Play in the Indian Wells Open and Miami Open
Senators Rick Scott and Marco Rubio urge President Biden to grant tennis champion's request to waive mandate.
By JOHN LEAKE
Senators Rick Scott and Marco Rubio just wrote a graceful letter to President Biden, urging him to grant Novak Djovovic’s request to waive the current COVID-19 “vaccine” mandate for international travelers entering the United States. The Senators show great restraint in their missive, which sets forth a rational argument for letting the champion into the country to play. I would have been tempted to tell the president that his discriminatory policy against foreign national visitors is an insult to common sense, science, basic principles of liberal democracy, and the spirit of international sportsmanship going back to the ancient Olympic Games.
There will come a day when the Biden Administration’s conduct in this matter is generally regarded as an embarrassing disgrace. It seems to me that those who are responsible for it are either captured by undisclosed interests, completely out of touch with reality, or (most likely) a combination of both. Even the Australian government, with its abominable treatment of Djokovic in 2022, had the common sense to let him play in this year’s Australian Open.
Bravo Senators Scott and Rubio. Shame on Djokovic’s fellow players and the US Professional Tennis Association for their failure to protest the exclusion of their distinguished colleague. Without him, it will be a hollow victory for whoever wins the men’s division.
