Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers spoke out this week to reveal why he refuses to play the “woke PC game,” even though the left sometimes attacks him for it.

Rogers Sounds Off 

After his team’s recent victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday, Rodgers was targeted by cancel culture for antagonizing Bears fans when he was caught on a hot mic saying “I own you! All my f**king life! I still own you!”

Rodgers, who is 22-5 against the Bears in his career, addressed this manufactured controversy during an appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show.”

“Back when I first got into the league, I feel like trash talk was a little more normalized and you didn’t have to apologize if you said something that offended a few people in a city,” Rodgers said. “I have a lot of respect for the city [of Chicago] and for the sports fans, it’s been a great rivalry over the years, but we have gotten the better of them for a while now. I don’t think I was saying anything that wasn’t necessarily close to the truth.”

Rogers Rips Cancel Culture

He added that there is a cancel culture that exists that “gets off on shrinking people, keeping them small, keeping them in a box, quieting them through cancellation.”

“That is the state of our media and really our culture [at large], this woke PC culture,” Rodgers lamented. “There’s a PC woke culture that exists, and there’s a cancel culture at the same time and it’s based on people’s own feelings of personal miserability or distaste for their own situations or life. Or just the enjoyment of holding other people down under their thumb.”

Rodgers continued: 

But when you engage in this culture, you’re immersed in it, and for me when I took time in the offseason to work on myself and to work on my mental status, I was being selfish, non-responsive, and entitled. When these ridiculous narratives get drawn on about me about—pick a topic—from my family, to my leadership style.

And people start thinking, He hasn’t responded to it so it must be true, right? When I finally respond to it to set the record straight, then I’m being sensitive. I have been there, in a few dud games. People think I don’t have enough passion, I don’t care about what’s going on. When I make a statement after a touchdown run to put us up two scores, now I’m not a sportsman, now I’m making this sh*t about me.”

Rodgers Ends His Rant

Rodgers concluded his rant by describing “the game” in which it is assumed he enter into, and the rules of the game are that he “acquiesce with the woke mob at all times.”

“However, when you live above the game, the game does not exist,” he stated. “And that’s where I’m at.”

BOOM! And that, folks, is what we call a mic drop moment!

God bless Rodgers for having the courage to sound off against cancel culture, as most celebrities in his position would be far too afraid to do that.
