excuse me everyone, i am just a kitten so please forgive me if this is a newbie question to which everyone already knows the answer, but how do you say “streisand effect” in australian?
asking for a friend…
Australia: Freedom's just another word for no one left to boost
I am very grateful to Djokovic. It took guts and determination, and he probably so much money that it hurts even such a successful sportsman.
I hope people will see from this example how ludicrous the Corona dictatorship is, and also take strength for their own lives.
I may have to give up my job and leave my country (Germany) if things continue the way they go, and Djokovic's example strengthen my resolve.
(Also I am not interested in tennis, and I didn't know of him before)
First person to win the Australian Open without playing in the Australian Open.
I was disappointed the top players didn't support him and threaten to boycott it. Had they all done that, the government would have backed off immediately knowing the tournament was going to flop miserably. That is the only way to stop these fascists. As it is now, the winner should have an asterisk next to his name, knowing the top player was not allowed to play.
The Australian government should publicly plead insanity and voluntarily feed themselves to a hungry group of Great White Sharks while simultaneously singing Waltzing Matilda backwards in Chinese.
I've always loathed tennis. But I think I just found my new sports hero.
Let's all work to become Icons of Free Choice by standing firm to our convictions. Be like Novak!
I'm not sure that I want to chisel Novak's face in stone next to Jackie Robinson's on the Mount Rushmore of courageous sports figures. When he was first granted entry to hell/Australia, he should have shown solidarity with the unvaxxed and refused to set foot in that benighted, malevolent nation.
As it stands now, I hope Rodgers and Green Bay run the table. Rodgers is a highly intelligent, irascible, prickly sort who just might stand up for the great unwashed...er, unvaxxed.
Props to Canadian tennis player Vasek Pospisil, too, for speaking out in defence of Novak Djokovic.
In related news, ticket refunds are now outpacing sales.
I am not making this up.
Australians are drinking the cool aide. Djokovic is better protected against covid than all their vaxxed population who have not had covid. At least that was how science worked in 2019. But what do I know? I get my news from a cat.
A ball-boy collapsed on the court. Just another formerly healthy child, purely coincidental. Nothing to be alarmed about.
I love the kitten corner.
We wouldn't want that now! That would be horrible!
Glen Greenwald did an awesome interview about this:
Excerpt: "But still, like when it comes to a decision like this, it's like, OK, well, where are you going to look in 20 years time? Are you going to look back and be, you know, more upset with yourself that you let your career slip by because of your morals or you let your career slip by because of a decision that maybe you didn't think through enough? Or are you going to look back in 20 years time with how things are potentially going and the way that the state and the authoritarian state seems to be creeping up in Western countries all over the place with how they're implementing these mandates?"
I just updated the Wikipedia page for Streisand Effect to include our buddy Novak. Any wagers for how long it stays up?
Wow, they are well and truly fucked!
What happens to the supposed camaraderie of these tennis players? They boycotted the Chinese when one of their own was silenced? Was that for political theatre? Sad!
Didn’t 4 players just quit during their games due to breathing difficulties yesterday?
Novak was already infected with Covid and thus has natural immunity. He is also one of the fittest people in the planet. He clearly poses no threat to anyone and is at no risk from Covid himself.
Australians went mad over Covid. They descended into a kind of fevered hysteria and deluded themselves into thinking that they could somehow magically eradicate a highly infectious respiratory virus. They couldn’t. Their failure is manifest:
“Australia Faces Deluge Of Omicron Cases And Hospitalizations…”
So they need someone to blame. They need a scapegoat. So it’s Djokavic. They can’t admit they were wrong. They wrecked their country and surrendered their liberty out of irrational fear. And now their fear has turned into irrational anger.
They are rabid and delusional. And they turned on Novak because he never succumbed to their weird, paranoid delusions.
Australia should change its motto from "G'Day, mate" to "G'Way, mate"
The Australian nOpe
For me Djokovic is currently one of the few people with character. Regarding his way to handle this awful Covid politics, he is my hero.
Classic diversionary tactic by the government, and the Australian people fell for it.
Hey, Australia, Djokovic is not a danger to your health. He is not responsible for your failure to advocate for yourselves and your children. You did that.
Novak Djokovic could have lied and gotten fake papers. I pray he holds the line for his own sake. We'll see what the summer brings.
Wow, Kitten! Your kittengarten teachers are on the ball! I had to look up “Streisand Effect”, and I got all the way through a four year degree!
Granted, I live as an almost hermit these days…
But you’d say it “Stroyznd Iffict” I think.
And, yeah. Thet bloke’s an oycon feh libbedy now. Noice gaoin, yeh bloody toirant dingos.
Djokovic Effect = Streisand Effect + Distortion of Reality by institutions/countries to save face
Heaven forbid! 🤦🏻♀️ What will it take for the citizens of Australia to wake up?!
Kittens are adorable fast and enthusiastic balls of fur with razor blades on their toes.
Come a gutser, mate! Buckley’s chance it’ll cark it.
Kangaroo court:1 Tennis court:0
Remember when "Silence = Violence"? Like every diktat from the Left, the answer is "it depends".
Alex Hawke, Immigration minister who cancelled Djokovic's visa, said: "Djokovic’s stance may inspire anti-vaccine sentiment, leading some people to face the pandemic without vaccination, and inspiring anti-vaxxer activists to gather in protests and rallies."
Aussie Land has gone outer limits, the twilight zone! Just do not know what else to say.
Let's hope this disgusting deportation backfires. Have there been any protests at the Australian Open?
Go, Novax! I'd join a go fund me to finance a 'pro-choice' tennis tournament. maybe in Mexico or South Africa :)
Must not be bound to a location actually - always going to a place that honours the inalienable human rights.
For those who are interested in what has transpired in Melbourne over the past two years, a new documentary, Battleground Melbourne: https://youtu.be/xzfJGC1_yPo
I suppose one of the new and fancy traits of the lefty / Covidian Cult is that there is nothing that these folk can possibly say or do that can be seen as embarrasing or disgraceful or stupid or shameful in their eyes. It seems that the paid up members of the Church of Covidian are having a secret competition to outdoor each other in the race to the bottom. How wonderful it must be to live shame-free; where can I get some of that?
We need more athletes like him!!!
I am a bit off topic here but feel like ranting about Dr Falsie so forgive me here.
“Every time I hear Falsie’s whiny and sniveling voice I cringe and I wouldn’t cry a tear if he disappeared just like Ricardo Montalban in this scene from the Naked Gun movie series
My problem now is I cannot get the song “Louie Louie” out of my mind.
Did you know about the case that he lost which for him deported yesterday?
The private lawyers he used, appointed by Aus government, had a conflict of interest. There’s a view that since the law firm was set up in after being bought out in April 2010 specifically to fight cases against vax non-compliance, Novak using them was always going to be doomed.
As long as he never goes back and plays an Australian open again - i am 100 percent behind him all the way. And the rest should have up and left too. Can any of the singles or doubles male players think they won this fair and square? When their greatest competition was kicked out?
It seems clear that Novak won the Australian Open despite being deported.
Djokovic, the proud winner of the 2022 Australian Open!
We should be able to ban criminals from getting tourist visas to the US from the UK. No brainer
Heart of a champion and let's hope he overcomes this adverse event. His tennis strokes should be all the better for it.
Fascism, or rather faucixm hs triumphedf Down Under
People wondered what the national socialist australian politicians, health Ghoulru's and basically all round trixaxxed, Fauci Diaper wearing Slave Lemmings of the Covidopalypse were going to do with the Philanthropist Djokovic? Stay and play? Heave and leave?
What would Mao/Stalin/Hitler etc, do?
let's hope it has the Streisand effect!
in regards to a previous gato post re the ronald mcdonald house in canada requiring "vaccinated only" people to stay there, i asked the ronald mcdonald house in the south island in nz if they required vaccine passports (yes, we have them here)--see the communication, with a smiley face no less, below:
Thank you so much!
Yes we do 😊

First, let me say I admire the work you do. I'm wondering if you require a vaccine [passport for families staying there.
