Bolt to Dean expressing surprise that medical apartheid, segregation, selective persecution, had gone so smoothly in Sydney. Presumably he meant that there had been no riots in the streets. People throwing themselves in front of race horses.
Dean to Bolt explaining that social media had carried a lot of objections and that Perrottet was on record as objecting to segregation and would soon end it. End of story really.
All quiet in Shanghai. What’s that about the Uighurs?
Jews herded up you say? Well, it passed without any fuss in meine town.
Medical apartheid, Sydney style, is mild compared with selective persecutions throughout history. But persecution it is just the same. And people not affected look the other way. No prominent principled conservatives around – no need for anyone with even an ounce of the courage of Dietrich Bonhoeffer – to rail against the mindless injustice of it all. I’m alright Jack, stuff you.
Even if the episode ends without further persecution of the unvaxxed; it is a forever-stain on Australia. And it makes it that much easy to single out dissidents for special treatment in the future. Those perimeter-secured, purpose-built, quarantine camps are ready and waiting. It can’t happen here? It has already.
