Freedom Day aka Discrimination Day

The great conservative Christian hope, Dominic Perrottet fails at his first hurdle. He becomes the first Australian political leader to ever mandate medically-based discrimination. Those infected who’ve been vaccinated can mingle in pubs, cafes and gyms. Those uninfected who haven’t been vaccinated can’t. Go figure.

My first day on Monday of being unclean. Passed my local pub, the Oaks Hotel Neutral Bay. Quite crowded. Mostly youngish people who faced no risk from Covid yet are all vaccinated. Status checked at the door. Can’t go in, not credentialed.

I broke the law today (Tuesday). Sat in an oft-frequented café – the owner doesn’t check. But I ordered my coffee in a takeaway cup so that I could scarper if I saw the fuzz. It’s a $1000 fine. And probably more for the café owner. Strange times.

I’ve noticed how little media conservatives care about medical apartheid. They just rabbit on about Freedom Day in NSW. Freedom for some; hang the others.

Andrew Bolt is disingenuous. Argues that the unvaccinated can stay at home if they like but shouldn’t be allowed to prevent everyone else from being free. I almost vomit at this duplicity. Doesn’t want to own his previous comments that the unvaccinated should continue to be locked up. Ergo he twists his argument.

Of course, his argument is twaddle. The unvaccinated largely form a cohort who never wanted anyone locked up at any time. What a ponce Covid has made of him; as it has of so many putative conservatives.

  1. Andrew Bolt is disingenuous. Argues that the unvaccinated can stay at home if they like but shouldn’t be allowed to prevent everyone else from being free.

    I used to agree with Bolt on most things up until 2-3 years ago, but now he can get stuffed.
    “Freedom” is not Bolt’s or Dictator Dan’s (or anyone else for that matter) right to grant or take away at their whim.

    You might be disappointed to discover how many are abject conformist cowards, but it’s better to know these things.

  4. What is particularly galling is that under Gladys it was announced that churches would be free to welcome unvaxxed members, but that was somehow removed when the orders came out last week.

    As you say, he failed at the first hurdle

  5. Blot is a flog. The worst kind of conservative turncoat when it comes to individual liberty and personal autonomy.

    Much of the Sky Sans Soleil cohort have drunk the vaxxer freedom kool-aid too. Presumably at the behest of their masters and sponsors.

    They are not to be trusted either.

  6. Andrew Bolt is just another Turnbull, Fraser, Hewson etc. He lost all credibility years ago.

    Which brings me to another topic. Why is Australia building all these COVID Villas for overseas travellers? If everyone who can travel is vaccinated, why would they need to isolate?

    So what is the purpose of these facilities? Could they perhaps be internment camps for the unvaccinated?

  7. Yes, there is a strange kind of blindness out there among many ‘conservatives’.

    A case in point: Some of you here may occasionally read the blog of one of the former Cat commentators, ‘I am Spartacus’. More often than not, he comes across as a sensible person.

    Yet in his recent missive, he states he is against mandatory vaccination, but he then proceeds to say that the vaxxed should not ‘subsidise’ the unvaxxed by affording them the same rating in private insurance (as applies to smokers, obese individuals and everyone else), or even allow them the ‘first in & first treated’ principle.

    While he knows, and even states, that the ‘vaccination’ does not stop one from getting sick or passing the illness on, he clearly chooses to ignore the fact that in countries where the vaxx campaign is much longer running than in Australia, there are more vaxxed patients than unvaxxed in hospital, and more often than not with more severe symptoms.

    In other words, that the ‘vaccines’ are not only dangerous, but that they do NOT work.

    And, he proudly announces that he’s had his own kids vaccinated. That would be the young who are at no risk from Covid whatsoever, but at a significantly higher risk of heart problems etc from the toxic non-vaxxed.

    I am currently in the EU, in a country where the vast majority (~80%) have been ‘vaccinated’. They still have thousands of new ‘cases’ a day and they have just started the third round of the frankenvaxx.

    If even otherwise sensible people cannot see that this will NEVER stop unless more of us say ‘NO MORE’, I fear the West as we knew it is over.

    ‘Vaccine mach frei’, indeed.

    I do not understand why otherwise apparently intelligent people get to come up with such utterly stupid arguments.

  8. I should be surprised, but I’m not anymore, that an educated population can swallow such complete drivel as an unvaccinated person poses a ‘threat’ to the vaccinated. It does not even pretend to logic, and merely makes a mockery of advice from so-called health experts. It is worth noting that Covid is rarely fatal, and is not even listed among the ‘deadliest infectious diseases’.

    It would be an interesting exercise to find out what % of supposed private media funds are government.

    Today I was serenaded to “it’s a wonderful world” by a breathy ho informing me if I get jabbed all will be well.

  19. Just popped into my inbox.

    From Tanya Davies, Member for Mulgoa

    Friend,

    Thank you for taking the time to write to me to let me know your opposition to the forced vaccination mandate policy. I wanted to touch base to share a few things that have been happening.

    Having spoken to many of you I know that your situation is extremely difficult; many have lost work, many are uncertain about their future and many are disillusioned that as a society we have gotten to this point.

    Yesterday we celebrated “Freedom Day” in NSW. But it wasn’t freedom day. Freedom day will be when all people, regardless of medical status, are treated equally.

    I will continue to fight for this freedom.

    Keep reading for information from the Fair Work Commissioner, my advocacy on behalf of thousands of healthcare workers/teachers/emergency personnel who are losing their jobs and an update on my petition for Rapid Antigen Testing.

  20. These idiots are gloating that they have been bribed with their own freedoms.

    They have no sense of what freedom is. It is just always…there. No matter what happens in Australia it will always be there. Not like those backward countries. Not like those communist countries. Not like those poor countries. Whatever freedom is, and they are assured it is a good thing, it will be hanging in the air like a smell.

    Same with economic wealth. Australia will always be a rich country, not matter how much taxation and regulation they heap on it, we will always be able to holiday in Noosa, take a trip to Europe, afford big TV’s and buy the latest fashions.

  22. Six out of ten Australians are insane.

    A survey has found almost six in 10 Australians are concerned about working alongside colleagues who are not vaccinated against coronavirus, with 70 per cent of respondents supporting workplace vaccine mandates.

    If you have been vaccinated either (a) you are protected or (b) the vaccine doesn’t work. If (a) then you shouldn’t give a flying fruitbat if someone in your workplace is unvaccinated, that’s their worry. If (b) then there is zero difference between your vaccinated and your unvaccinated coworkers, and you should be buying ivermectin on the internet. There really isn’t much in between those two basic science positions.

    Increasing number of Aussies are concerned about working alongside unvaccinated colleagues, study finds (12 Oct)

    Our country is inhabited by a horde of vaccinated morons.

    Perrottet is still acting like a premier not a dictator like Dan, at this point, not knowing how much this rule relaxation will effect hospitalisations and death rates from covid why shouldn’t he give things a couple of weeks to settle?

    As an outsider looking in I’m going to give him a couple of weeks.
    That he is abandoning hotel quarantine for Australians returning from overseas, probably on the 1st of November is a good sign.

  26. Peter, this is an extract from your latest piece in Quadrant – it is incorrect.

    As I read the complex rules, the unvaccinated will be compelled to wear masks outside while they, the privileged majority, will be free of this useless mandate. Might as well give out yellow stars.

    As an “anti-vaxxer” who detests face nappies with a passion and who currently exists in one of Sydney’s notorious “LGAs of Obsession”, I monitor the (stupid, complex and infuriating) rules regularly and checked them (again) after reading your piece above. They clearly state that people in Greater Sydney do not need to wear face nappies outside regardless of their “vaccine status”.

    From the NSW government bat flu website:

    (From 11 October 2021) People in Greater Sydney will no longer be required to carry a face mask with them, or wear a face mask outside, except in limited circumstances.

    See also here: https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/rules/rules-for-people-who-are-not-fully-vaccinated#toc-masks-covid-19-safe-check-in-and-vaccination-evidence

    Please note I am not in any way, shape or form defending any of this hysterical insanity. As far as I’m concerned, face nappies are worse than useless and the wearing of them in any public setting should be banned.

    As for now effectively being a second class citizen, I can barely contain my hatred of and contempt for spineless backsliding two faced politico/meeja mongrels like Perrottet and Bolt. Utter scum.

  27. I tried to make an appointment with a specialist for mid December; the office said that they will not take any unvaccinated patients. When I said that December 1 is the date presumably for the end of the health orders and the return to “normality”, the response was that the surgery had checked with its solicitors and there was no impediment to this decision. It was left open whether a review of this policy would be done post the December 1 date.

    Previous to that call I had telephoned our GP for a referral to be informed that the doctor was closing the surgery at the end of November after about 40 years of service to the community. I asked the office staff whether a new doctor would be taking over the practice but was told that the surgery would close; and was the doctor providing the contact details of other doctors for his patients; “no” was the answer.

    (Incidentally, the other half had been to the doctor earlier in the year and in passing he’d been informed the doc would keep working for a few more years – I do understand that people change their minds).

    I then called a friend to see who her doctor is. She said that she had just found out that her doctor was retiring asap. I realise that this could all be coincidental, but it has left me wondering.

    Coincidentally, I went to a medical appointment tonight, and during the conversation I was told it is happening everywhere. Practices closing down all over. The reason wasn’t pinpointed, but it was raised when discussing the unethical nature of the vaccine mandate, so I can only assume it’s significant factor.

    It is pretty obvious that the Australian electorate is not prepared to accept a high death rate, that has to be a risk opening up, like it or not

    Compare the annual ‘flu season – in 2017, 1183 deaths were recorded. In relation to the general timeframe of a ‘flu season, the covid-19 mortality rate seems no more worrying. In fact it is less so, given that since the pandemic began on 25/1/20 in Australia, which so far is just over 20 months, there have been 1461 deaths.

    https://www1.health.gov.au/internet/main/publishing.nsf/Content/7610377A5BEB1D25CA25874B007D9DD2/$File/2019-Influenza-Season-Summary.pdf

    https://www.health.gov.au/news/health-alerts/novel-coronavirus-2019-ncov-health-alert/coronavirus-covid-19-case-numbers-and-statistics

    As to the public not being prepared to accept a high death rate; as noted above, there hasn’t been one, no matter what the government, the public health officials and the media keep saying.

    Perrottet is still acting like a premier…at this point, not knowing how much this rule relaxation will effect hospitalisations and death rates from covid why shouldn’t he give things a couple of weeks to settle?

    1) Being prepared to give things a few weeks suggests that segregation is no “biggy” for you.

    2) see previous answer to the number of Covid deaths vis-à-vis the 2017 ‘flu season.

    3) Until Monday of this week, all citizens of Australia living in NSW had the same rights, including the right to make their own choices about what medical treatment they would or would not have. Now there are effectively two classes of citizenship. As to the couple of weeks to settle – remember the two weeks to flatten the curve?

    I know if you’ve convinced yourself it’s only this and that and vaccines are useless nothing is going to be good enough

    Again, it is about the right of the free person to make their own decisions without reference to anyone else. It does not worry me in the least that you decided in favour of the jab; I would appreciate it if you would grant that same courtesy to others.

    That he is abandoning hotel quarantine for Australians returning from overseas, probably on the 1st of November is a good sign. And that doesn’t mean I’m endorsing vaccine passports, I don’t

    I’m pretty sure that I heard the NSW Rum Corps Commander state that the NSW Plod won’t be policing in clubs, pubs, cafes etc. He said that the police would only get involved if a business owner said that he or she was have problems with a leper who wouldn’t go away.

    The policing requirement seems to be on the business owner and if they don’t want to enforce the restrictions, i.e., if they like the colour of your money whether you are vaxxed or not, then you shouldn’t encounter any problems.

    It will very quickly degenerate into the q-code, sign-in requirement, that’s the business owner’s responsibility to manage and if they don’t bother, then no one else will either.

    As an unvaxed, non-masker, I read the new rules on that execrable DT website (ex-paywall, of course, so webadmin costs but no income for the fuckers), it implied that current rules for the unvaxed will only change on 1st December. They can’t even get basic grammar right, the dogs!
