Novak Djokovic Proves “Love Conquers All”

Facing Djokovic

By Scoop Malinowski

A year ago the hate mob media monster destroyed the greatest tennis champion in history. The hate mob media monster assassinated his character over his decision to decline to inject himself with a dangerous, risky drug shot that does not work. The hate mob media monster succeeded in banning Djokovic from playing and winning his tenth Australian Open title and record-tying 22nd Grand Slam title.

But an unexpected thing happened. A year later, the truth and justice prevailed and now Novak Djokovic will play the 2023 Australian Open and now he’s been completely embraced by the public. Everywhere he goes and plays the crowds have greeted and treated him as the most beloved, respected, endeared champion in perhaps the history of ALL sport.

Through all the injustice and hostility from the hate mob media monster, Djokovic never got angry, or cried or expressed any sentiments of hate for his oppressors. He patiently waited with faith that the ordeal would eventually end and his life and career would return to normal. Today Novak Djokovic is living proof that “Love conquers all.”

The actual phrase “love conquers all” is not in the Bible. However, there are verses and chapters in the Bible that come close in terms of meaning…

Romans 8:37 NLT No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

1 Peter 4:8 NLT Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins.

Matthew 22:36‭-‬40 NLT “Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?” Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’  This is the first and greatest commandment.  A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’  The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”

1 Corinthians 13:1‭-‬13 NLT If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing. Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever! Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture! But when the time of perfection comes, these partial things will become useless. When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things. Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely. Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.

The phrase “Love conquers all” is derived from the following phrase in the Latin poet Virgil’s Eclogues X.69: “Omnia vincit amor et nos cedamus amori.” It means “love conquers all, let us all yield to love.” The beginning of the phrase was subsequently translated as “love conquers all” by Geoffrey Chaucer, an English poet of the Middle Ages, and thereafter passed into popular usage.

How exactly does love conquer all? 

Events of this past few weeks and months, in fact over the last few years, have really pointed out the divisions that exist between us here in this country and throughout  the world.  Divisions of race, gender, religion, politics, nation against nation, I could go on and on.  The answer is love and that’s who God is.1 John 4:7-8 NLT Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

    Scoop, you made a lot of excellent points in your article. However, there’s such a thing as “tough love” too. 😉 As C. S. Lewis pointed out: “Love is something more stern and splendid than mere kindness.”

    There are many verses in the Bible about hating evil as well, such as Romans 12:9: “Hate what is evil, hold on to what is good.”

    There’s also Luke 17:3: “If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him.” And notice the word if there.

    Through all the injustice and hostility from the hate mob media monster, Djokovic never got angry, or cried or expressed any sentiments of hate for his oppressors.

    That’s true, but I think Djokovic was way too passive about what happened. He should’ve been much more critical of the oppressive treatment he received, and also should’ve called for a boycott of a tournament that required every player to get a dangerous, experimental jab in order to compete. 😡 These jabs are killing people, and whitewashing all the carnage isn’t doing anyone a favor.

    Sam, I agree Djokovic took the very passive approach but it has succeeded, look at where he’s at now. If he did retaliate with anger or counterattacks, the media hate mob would have crucified him worse. Not surprisingly Worstheim and Rotten are already showing their anti Novak hate bias again this year, as they have taken their cheap shots at his PTPA announcement this week. They took cheap shots on twitter. But as we know now the fake news anti Novak hate mob media has completely failed to villainize and demonize Djokovic, he’s more beloved and admired now than any sports champion I’ve ever seen. If he would have openly challenged the death jab they might have killed him. He did the best he could do. Dealing with evil is a very risky dangerous game.

    Sam, I agree Djokovic took the very passive approach but it has succeeded, look at where he’s at now.

    Depends on your definition of success, Scoop. Matthew 16:25 is another verse to keep in mind: “For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.”

    Have you heard of British Member of Parliament Andrew Bridgen? In order to speak the truth about the Covid jabs, he’s basically forfeiting his political career, it seems. This video, which is less than five minutes, shows you what he’s going up against:

    https://rumble.com/v2543p8-british-mp-andrew-bridgen-ignites-firestorm-by-comparing-covid-vaccine-disa.html

    Anyway, his amazing courage meets my definition of success. 👍

    If he did retaliate with anger or counterattacks, the media hate mob would have crucified him worse.

    So what? I’m not saying that he should’ve ranted or raved like a maniac or anything, but I definitely believe he should’ve called for a boycott of the tournament last year.

    But as we know now the fake news anti Novak hate mob media has completely failed to villainize and demonize Djokovic, he’s more beloved and admired now than any sports champion I’ve ever seen.

    That’s good to see.

    If he would have openly challenged the death jab they might have killed him. He did the best he could do. Dealing with evil is a very risky dangerous game.

    Yes, it can certainly be dangerous, but I don’t think Djokovic did the best he could do. In fact, he did absolutely nothing to protect the other players from the tyranny of forced vaccination at last year’s tournament.

    Appeasing evil never works, Scoop. Remember what Neville Chamberlain did back in World War II? However, nonviolent opposition is the key. As I said, I think he should’ve called for a boycott of last year’s tournament. As Dietrich Bonhoeffer once put it: “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”

    Anyway, having said all that, I do hope that he wins the tournament this year. That’d be a great way for him to stick it to the ATP. 😊

    Sam, you’re right, he did what was best for himself and the future of his career. A pro tennis career is the ultimate dream career and nobody would want to sacrifice that except for Ash Barty, a political career – one of the worst jobs in the world if you’re honest and trying to do the right thing working for the people. Djokovic has been scared into silence about the jab. I do remember and have shared his Rio Olympics quote about the virus they were promoting back then, Djokovic said it was for other reasons but refused to elaborate. So Djokovic showed back then in 2016 he knew these viruses were political hoaxes.

  • Scoop Malinowski · January 18, 2023 at 8:43 am

    Novak on the 2016 zika virus flu: “I did get more information on it. My decision is to go to Olympic Games, because from the informations and facts that I got, it’s not as it’s presented, it’s not as dangerous. Of course there is always a possibility that you can get that virus, but I think, you know, maybe the fuss and the buzz about that virus has been created with some kind of other intent. But I’m not going to get into that.”

    Sam, you’re right, he did what was best for himself and the future of his career. A pro tennis career is the ultimate dream career and nobody would want to sacrifice that except for Ash Barty

    Pretty much, Scoop. Pro athletes are always looking out for number one, very often even putting their careers above their own families. It basically just goes with the territory. However, at least Djokovic has showed more courage than 99% of pro tennis players by publicly refusing to get jabbed. The only other ones I can think of who did the same were Sandgren and Herbert. Hopefully they’ve stuck to their guns too.

    a political career – one of the worst jobs in the world if you’re honest and trying to do the right thing working for the people.

    Well, it’s not a job I would ever want, but no doubt Mr. Bridgen has thrown his whole adult life into it. And for him to be willing to sacrifice it all by speaking the truth—well, that’s extremely admirable. 👍

    Djokovic has been scared into silence about the jab.

    As have a lot of folks, sadly. 😕 Have you heard of Naomi Wolf? She’s someone else who’s incurred a lot of abuse because she’s continually speaking out against the jabs. She’s actually a feminist and a former Democrat who was an adviser to both the Clinton and Gore campaigns. Anyway, when someone like her is waking up and smelling the deception, you KNOW things have gotten really bad! 🤮

    So Djokovic showed back then in 2016 he knew these viruses were political hoaxes.

    That’s good. And of course, someone like him does have to be very careful about what he says, because the evil media love to twist his words.

    but I think, you know, maybe the fuss and the buzz about that virus has been created with some kind of other intent. But I’m not going to get into that.

    Exactly. Incidentally, do you believe that he’s injured at all?

  • Scoop Malinowski · January 23, 2023 at 8:17 am

    Sam, I would not be surprised if he’s exaggerating the pain or injury, as a smokescreen to control the media from focusing on him winning the title as the heavy favorite. First time I remember this happening at a slam was Sampras going for the record at Wimbledon I think it was 2000 and Pete claimed he had some kind of foot injury but he kept on winning matches comfortably with no sign of any pain or hobble. It was smart to control the media to focus on the alleged injury instead of droning on and on with question about breaking the slam record. Nadal of course is the grandmaster of creating injury smokescreen hoaxes. As Bernard Hopkins the great boxing champ said, “If you can bluff em you can beat em.”

  • Sam · January 23, 2023 at 11:30 pm

    Yes, Scoop, I think that makes the most sense—that he’s exaggerating anything he’s got. Of course, he may well have something minor, as lots of players do, but it doesn’t sound like anything for him to lose much sleep over. As for hoodwinking the media, well, those vipers deserve nothing less. 🐍 😊

  • Scoop Malinowski · January 24, 2023 at 8:47 am

    Sam yes the media deserves nothing better, I cant recall ever hearing ONE single wta or atp player ever say thank you to “the media” after winning a title, they thank sponsors, team, ball kids, volunteers but never the media. Though a few nice players to thank the media after press conferences, such as Dimitrov.
