We’re tracking the conservative culture clash with woke Hollywood hypocrites to keep you up to date on who’s winning and who we hate. 

 Here’s what happened today:

Released

The world’s top tennis player, Novak Djokovic, will be able to defend his title at the Australian Open, after a judge ruled that the country’s government’s choice to cancel his visa last week was “unreasonable.” 

Djokovic was held at an immigration hotel since last Wednesday, until he could appeal the decision to revoke his visa, on the grounds that was medically exempt from Australia’s vaccine mandate after testing positive for the virus in December. 

“I’m pleased and grateful that the judge overturned my visa cancellation,” Djokovic said on Twitter. “Despite all that has happened, I want to stay and try to compete at the Australian Open.”

“I remain focused on that. I flew here to play at one of the most important events we have in front of the amazing fans.”

His fight to remain in the country may not be over, after the federal government indicated they won’t drop the matter. Immigration Minister Alex Hawke is reportedly reserving the right to exercise his personal power to revoke the visa. 

If the petition goes through, he will not be able to enter the country for three years. 

Defeated

Georgia beat Alabama 33-18 to take their first national championship since 1980. The game was a one point nail-biter, until Alabama scored with ten minutes left in the fourth quarter, but Georgia came back with a 40-yard touchdown during their next possession. 

They scored on another 15-yard pass and were up 26-18, then clinched the game when Alabama threw an interception that Kelee Ringo returned for 79-yards with just over a minute left. 

 “How about this university? How about these fans? This is a special moment for the University of Georgia, a special moment for this team,” Georgia head coach Kirby Smart said after the game. 

Rant

In a bizarre Instagram tirade liberal actor Alec Baldwin suggested that the “right-wing” is behind the rumors that he’s not comply with law enforcement’s warrant to search his phone following the death of “Rust” cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, who he accidentally killed on set. 

“Any suggestion that I am not complying with requests or orders or demands or search warrants about my phone, that’s bulls–t,” Baldwin said. “That’s a lie.”

“This is a process where one state makes the request of another state,” Baldwin went on. “Someone from another state can’t come to you and say, ‘give me your phone, give me this, give me that.’ They can’t do that. They’ve gotta go through the state you live in. There’s a process that takes time.”

He said “consider the source” of the rumors that he hasn’t been compliant with the court order. Baldwin added that he “had no worries” about the warrant, and that it’s “all going to work itself out,” despite what the “right-wing rag sheets who are all about hate” have reported.

Bob Saget

The cast of “Full House” paid tribute to the show’s patriarch, Bob Saget, after his abrupt passing on Sunday. 

“Thirty-five years ago, we came together as a TV family, but we became a real family. And now we grieve as a family,” they said in a joint statement released by co-star John Stamo on Instagram. 

“Bob made us laugh until we cried. Now our tears flow in sadness, but also with gratitude for all the beautiful memories of our sweet, kind, hilarious, cherished Bob,” the post read. “He was a brother to us guys, a father to us girls and a friend to all of us. Bob, we love you dearly. We ask in Bob’s honor, hug the people you love. No one gave better hugs than Bob.”

The statement was signed by the entire cast, who also individually paid tribute. 

“Bob was the most loving, compassionate and generous man,” the Olsen twins said in a combined message. “We are deeply saddened that he is no longer with us but know that he will continue to be by our side to guide us as gracefully as he always has. We are thinking of his daughters, wife and family and are sending our condolences.”

“Words cannot begin to express how devastated I am,” Aunt Becky actress Lori Loughlin wrote. “Bob was more than my friend; he was my family. I will miss his kind heart and quick wit. Thank you for a lifetime of wonderful memories and laughter. I love you, Bobby. “

“There aren’t enough words to express what I’m feeling today. Nor are they big enough to capture even a slice of who he was,” said the show’s middle daughter Jodie Sweetin.

“One thing I do know, is that we never missed a chance to tell each other, “I love you”. Every time we talked, there were at least 3 or 4 exchanged at the end of a conversation, whether it was text, phone call or in person. And he usually had to have the last word, “I love you more…” 

 

Go Fund Me

“Tiger King” star Joe Exotic pleaded with fans to donate to a Go Fund Me account his lawyer set up so he can “pay that b—- Carole Baskin back.”

Exotic alleged that at his original trial, it was “falsely claimed” that he owed Baskin money, and said that his rival is “obsessed” with and “hunted” him.

“She is not a philanthropist. I agreed to the judgment after bad advice from lawyers. She hired lawyers to stop a bankruptcy. She then used the debt to make me and the animals suffer. I couldn’t afford lawyers when they set me up,” he said through his lawyer.

Exotic is currently “broke, in prison, with cancer,” on a 22-year jail term, but will be resentenced this month.

“Her lawyers just got the same d— judge in my criminal case to fine me another $9800 in an old civil case just to f—ing haunt me and make me suffer,” he continued. “Well when I get out of here, I need her off my back. She doesn’t deserve it. I hate to ask for it.”

“Everyone, if you enjoyed Tiger King or had some Joe Exotic fun, donate $5,” he pleaded. “Please help. Let’s pay that f—ing b—- back and get me back. Carole, give it to the animals. Use it to clean up that mess in Tampa, not to pay off politicians.” 

Exotic is looking for a cool half-a-million, but has only raised $3,000. 

 

Liberal Tirade

MSBNC host Joy Reid tore into podcaster Joe Rogan in COVID related rant where she framed “white, so-called Christian conservatives” as “special citizens” who refuse to wear masks at Joe Rogan’s behest.

“I don’t want to wear a mask, and if you try to make me, I’ll attack the low-waged clerks at the store or at the Burger King. And I don’t wanna to get vaccinated either. People get sick from me? Oh well, not my problem. Joe Rogan said it was fine,” Reid crowed.

“My kids aren’t going to mask up to protect those other kids. F those other kids; their parents are probably commies anyway,” she mocked.

 

RIP 

“Golden Girls” star Betty White’s cause of death was revealed to be a “cerebrovascular accident,” meaning that she suffered from a stroke. 

Despite earlier reports that White died of “natural causes” three weeks short of her 100th birthday, and her death certificate noted that she had a stroke six days before her passing in her home on New Year’s Eve. No autopsy was performed by a coroner.
