Rights into the Covid dustbin

What does New York Mayor Bill De Blasio have in common with most right-of-centre commentators on, say, Rupert Murdoch’s Sky News Australia. To be fair, most everything is probably not the correct answer. However, what they do have in common is an appetite to relegate our inalienable or God-given rights to the category of privileges dispensed at their whim by our political masters and their apparatchiks. Refuse the vax and there go your rights into the dustbin. Apartheid revisited. Though at least blacks were allowed into designated sections in theatres, restaurants, sporting arenas and trains and buses in the southern states in the Jim Crow era.

This time around, no theatre, restaurant or sportsground or pub or gym for you, if you don’t toe the line. Or, I wonder, church or train or bus? Supermarkets, obviously not (I think) but will they make you wear a sign. A mask to symbolise uncleanliness. Exactly how far will they go if you don’t submit to the medical experiment. And at what point in the persecution of fellow citizens will our ‘conservative champions’ feel uncomfortable occupying the dark side. Or will it become too alluring.  Hard to resist pleasing the crowd. Face of conservatism 2021

  1. I could only tolerate 20 seconds of that.

    His words…if I take the risk and I get vaccinated why should I have to stay locked down with you?

    The bugger is acknowledging the risk. And painting himself as bwave.

    What the creature fails to understand is that:

    – there are people for whom no vaccine is appropriate
    – there are people who object on moral/ethical/religious grounds (aborted foetus)

    Thanks Bolt. You’re only a slight stoop away from picking up a rock and hurling it. I can tell by the pitch of your voice.

  2. “These women refused, therefore, to wear numbers–,-the mark of Satan! Nor would they give signed receipts (to Satan, of course) in return for regulation dress. The camp authorities (Chief of Administration General Grigoryev, head of Separate Camp Site Major Bogush) showed laudable firmness! They gave orders that the women should be stripped to their shifts, and have their shoes taken from them (the job went to wardresses who were members of the Komsomol), thus enlisting winter’s help in forcing these senseless fanatics to accept regulation dress and sew on their numbers. But even with the temperature below freezing, the women walked about the camp in their shifts and barefoot, refusing to surrender their souls to Satan!”

    Real power is achieved when the ruling class controls the material essentials of life, granting and withholding them from the masses as if they were privileges.

  4. As soon as something seems inevitable he gives up. Case in point: COVID passports

    If you wait around long enough for a hill to die on, you’ll die in the gutter.

  5. Bolt via Quadrant (and then perhaps Tim Blair?) was my initial route to Cat2 (Peace Be Upon It), but I haven’t paid any attention to him for at least five years. While I admired his stance with the indigenous identification issue, he seems to me to be a polisher of dead wood, the intention being to promote shine instead of growth. Twisted driftwood can be functional as a coffee table base, but not as a political foundation.

    Regarding the vaccine passports – these are social and economic blackmail.

  6. There is irony in Bolt’s statement “why should your fear rob me of my freedom” as he demands freedom for the ‘vaccinated’ and continued lock down for the rest.

  7. Bolta has been a stand-up guy for years but like the rest of us he’s up against an army. No wonder he’s fading. I don’t watch him any more. And despite years of resistance, using only words, like Rita, Peta AND NEW POLITICAL PARTIES, they’ve all accepted that Convid19 is a thing and “we must learn to live with it”. IT isn’t. It’s just lie based on lie based on lie. And easily disprovable lies.
    Words don’t work. Actions will. In due course. It’s all lies.
    And manipulation.
