The real political extremists

She really is a fool of the highest order. Then there’s this: Andrews accuses PM of ‘pandering to extremists’.

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has accused Prime Minister Scott Morrison of “pandering to extremists” in the wake of a large protest in Melbourne.

On Saturday, tens of thousands of protesters took to the streets in Melbourne’s CBD in opposition to the state government’s pandemic laws and COVID-19 vaccination policies.

The peaceful protest capped off a week of demonstrations at State Parliament where there were some ugly scenes including the parading of gallows.

Asked about the threats during the week, Mr Morrison said such behaviour had no place in public protest but could understand why some Victorians were frustrated with the state government.

 

Mr Andrews on Sunday said those comments were offensive to the 5 million Victorians who had received their vaccinations.

What is really a major worry is that our political leaders are such fools, with Andrews and Lambie so brain dead to the issues that matter. How about we factor things like this into the equation: UK STUDY — Vaccinated Adults under 60 are dying at 2X Times the rate of the Unvaccinated….

  1. The peaceful protest capped off a week of demonstrations at State Parliament where there were some ugly scenes including the parading of gallows.

    That’s it?

    That is the ugliness? That is the violence? A symbol? A gimmick?

    The fact that the actual people were peaceful (I understand even cheery to be in contact with people who think like them when they have been demonised for months as freaks) – that is viewed as less representative of the protest.

    They (Albo, Andrews, Lambie etc) are really desperate to paint themselves as the victims. Seems the arsenal is empty – the best they can hope for is people might feel sorry for them.

    I don’t.

  2. Lambie is a moron. But she shows the fury of an idiot who in their idiocy feels endangered and knows their idiocy tends to come back and bite them on the buttocks.

    It is why she has seized onto this new idea that the highest imperative for a person is to do whatever others want. To put their judgement ahead of your own.

    It might be a small thing for her to ignore the guffawing yammering voice in her head – it has repeatedly duped her into making a fool of herself – but some of us put great store in our wits’ ability to guide us right.

    But it is in fact more insidious even. Who decides what ‘everyone else’ wants. Who speaks for all other Australians, or Victorians, or New South Welshmen? Government. Well, they don’t have an agenda, do they?

    Most Australians think Lambie is a clown yet she is in a position of influence. So, what should she do? You know. As a ‘bloody’ adult.

    It really makes me feel uneasy to hear people telling me of the superior morality of subordinating myself to a collective, every one else of which (in theory) is subjecting themselves so no one has a will.

    If I am with a friend and we are deciding dinner, we talk of what we each want and eventually reach an agreement. If instead my mission is to agree to whatever the other person says, and they have their mission as to agree with whatever I say, then we will make no decision. Which is perfect for some officious busybody to come in and tell us both.

    Jackie is arguing for this, of course. She doesn’t understand that she is.

    Tasmania really has a rare gift for offering up lunatics.

    If you decline the vax as you believe it will kill you and it is forced on you then what little Civil behavior you had is gone.
    You were just murdered and the only remaining guiding principle is “an eye for an eye”.

  5. How about we factor things like this into the equation. UK STUDY — Vaccinated Adults under 60 are dying at 2X Times the rate of the Unvaccinated

    The fact that paralysis rates have increased since the polio vaccine doesn’t stop anybody from taking it – including people at the Cat.

    The fact that congenital defect rates have increased since the rubella vaccine doesn’t stop anybody from taking it.

    The fact that liver cancer rates have tripled since the hepatitis B vaccine hasn’t stopped anybody from taking it.

    The fact that sterility rates have skyrocketed since the mumps vaccine hasn’t stopped anybody from taking it.

    The fact that invasive disease rates have increased since the various meningitis vaccines hasn’t prevented anybody from taking it.

    When it comes to vaccines, data is, and has always been, irrelevant.

    Of the people who question vaccines, only about 1 per cent of us have done so because we actually bothered to look at the (valid) data and realised that none of them had any benefit whatsoever.

    Everybody else has to learn the hard way.

  6. Under our current, and indeed the past 20 odd months of unquestionable tyranny, the following quote is easily seen to be so very true;

    “Power really is a test of character. In the hands of a person of integrity, it is of tremendous benefit; in the hands of a tyrant, it causes terrible destruction”.

    John Maxwell.

    Absolutely EVERY so-called premier (deliberate lower case) and their public servant minions fit perfectly into the tyrant camp and, rapidly getting worse.

    As for the so-called prime minister (again deliberate lower case) along with his entire cabal, the opposition parties, it is impossible to describe them as anything other than completely out of control tyrants whose only thought and action is for themselves.

    Another great quote is by Brian Cagney,
    “The first law of leadership is that your foundation is built through integrity, character, and trust”

    None of these qualities appear in any of those who somehow believe that they are our superiors and that we must bow to their awesomeness. Indeed none of these qualities have appeared in 99% of the politicians or public servants for some 40 + years.

    At 68 + years of age the … (cannot use the words I am thinking in a public place) will not defeat me and so many other like minded people from all ages.

    As Socrates so precisely stated;

    ” He is a man of courage who does not run away, but remains at his post and fights against the enemy”
    And I include all you wonderful ladies in the above quote as I am aware that throughout history there has been and continues to be those with courage and integrity to stand tall.

  9. Andrews is no fool.

    He’s contributing to a building narrative that will cast ordinary Australians who happen to disagree with the Green-Left agenda as extremists and potential domestic terrorists.

    This is the application of Alinsky’s rules for radicals (who are now the radical Establishment) no. 13:

    ‘Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. ‘

    Obama began this on a large scale in the US & Biden, Pelosi continue it.

    No, Dictator Dan, what truly “offends” me is you, with your coercion of millions of Victorians into being vaxxed, and your naked legislative grab for untrammeled power with none of that pesky oversight from parliament and no checks and balances.

The medical receptionist was curious as to why.. he mentioned others have done the same.. told him I wasn’t happy with the shennanigans of pfizer and the FDA re 55 years to release the data wrt the emergency use authorisation in response to an foi request. News to him. I am getting the jab so I can travel to visit family. Son ( + grandson who I have yet to hold) & daughter live on the East coast. Missus family are in Sg + great nephew who I have yet to hold. The jab is mandatory for my work site from Jan 1st else work from home. Somewhat problematic as I am a labrat. Thankfully I am financially OK and work for the mental challenge/ enjoyment rather than for the bank. I feel for those that do not have the choice.

    Have they send squads of ninja turtles round to pollies houses to “check” them?
    Burst into Parliament and started spaying tear gas and baton rounds ?
    Singled out pollies at train stations and slung them head first into the ground?
    Banned Pollies from seeing family/friends and fundraisers?
    Forced them to choose between a medical procedure and their employment?

    If the answer is no then I think “parading a gallows” ranks a long way behind all of those things.

    Should be easy to check – it is on social media.

    Surprised veteran groups would have warmed to her – suddenly developing injuries that prevented her being deployed just the day before she was to go.

    Maybe she deals more with the admin people who would deal with the devil to get something for the people they represent, and she can be relied upon to storm into offices demanding things because it is the only demographic she can lay claim to with any justification – besides oversexed fishwives.

  28. the state government’s pandemic laws and COVID-19 vaccination policies.

    Note that this press piece did not feature adjectives preceding ‘pandemic laws’ and ‘COVID-19 vaccination policies.’

    Had the government been a Liberal one, I am confident that the descriptors controversial, divisive, hotly-debated, or even despised, would precede the above-mentioned nouns.

    Note also the adjective here:

    there were some ugly scenes including the parading of gallows.

    It is a waste of time demanding press outlets such as The Age (despite being a reformed Victorian, I do not know who owns it) report rather then interpret events. We MUST remember, however, what the majority of the glossed lips of the elite have done to paralyse our society. Without them, and the cowardice of virtually every social, sporting, business, and community leader and organisation, NONE of the damage we now survey would have been enabled. It may be some time before any opportunity for retribution against the glossed lips of the elite becomes available. When it does, however, we owe it to everyone who has been scarred over the last 20+ months, to clench that opportunity, and maintain the pressure of our grip until we are close to losing consciousness ourselves. Retribution must be savage.

    I do not have an answer to HOW we might do so. I fear, however, that we will forget what has been done to us, and who did it. We are essentially forgiving, compassionate people.

    Do not forget the glossed lips of the elite.

    Yes, heard of others the same. In order of danger for locally used jabs is Moderna, Pfizer then Astra Zeneca is the slightly less dangerous of the three. Make sure they aspirate the syringe, hit a blood vessel you have 100% guaranteed clotting. They know this as it happened during the testing phase, and was also known in medical literature years prior that an adenovirus based vaccine cases clotting if it enters the circulatory system. They just didn’t bother telling the people administering the jabs.

  35. I fear, however, that we will forget what has been done to us, and who did it. We are essentially forgiving, compassionate people.

    Muddy, I think Australians are only forgiving and compassionate when they should be. But these times are not normal. I can’t see anyone who has been adversely affected by lockdowns, the loss of income for weeks/months, missed family gatherings and being absent from relative’s sick beds or funerals, had their businesses forcibly closed and the borders locked, and been made to take a vaccine, accept QR codes and vaccine passports, forgetting that all of these impositions have been forced on them by their own governments.

    While it could be argued that early on no-one in government knew where this was ultimately leading and so a definite course of action possibly was necessary, some of the most draconian of measures continued well past those initial worries: it’s been many months since the population realised that most of this stuff was well over the top. But this stuff and more has continued on regardless – it doesn’t help the people when their government and bureaucracy hasn’t suffered equally with them.

    Over the weekend I watched some of the footage from the marches. The Melbourne one had some very good speakers who returned quite often to remembering what’s been done to the people and encouraging the audience not to forget it.

    While I’m in no way suggesting that this current situation is equivalent to the war damage wrought on the nation, but a couple of generations ago Australians didn’t forget (or forgive) what the Japanese did to our POWs. So there are limits to our compassion and so far our national “forgettery” remains shut.

    1. Bring in an obscene legislation ‘for safety’ reasons. A common excuse by Union thugs to do what they want.
    2. If there is bad polling then wind back some minor measures and there you go I listened to you all better now.
    3. Protesters are easy to take on. Call them extremists, not representative, a danger to the community … where possible get your media lackies to take photos of the most extreme protestors and hang that a round the neck of the crowd. If they had not used gallows for this purpose they would have found offense in signs ,T-shirts’, flags … any manner of protest paraphernalia. So don’t think getting rid of the gallows would have made the protest ‘acceptable’.

    I am still processing Melbourne and Australian msm acting to ignore the size of last Saturday Freedom March, to ignore the cross section of people attending , to ignore what may have driven people to take to the streets.

    Professor Nikolai Petrovsky has just developed Australia’s first successful vaccine in 40 years. In any approximation of a normal world, he would be feted as the living incarnation of the government’s much trumpeted aspiration to be an ‘innovation nation’. Instead, he has been stood down by his university and threatened with arrest if he sets foot in his office. Why? For refusing to be immunised with one of the vaccines approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).

  43. Irony. Lambie’s theme is precisely aligned with the “Liberty Quote” from the great Theodore Dalrymple at the top of this blog. That is, people want liberty but don’t want responsibility. Lambie said people are totally free to decide whether they are jabbed. If they choose not, they have to accept consequences: that is, to accept that the majority don’t want to be exposed to their risk.
    She also made the valid point that Hanson and Roberts are in a money-making venture and are simply trawling for votes they can take to the (electoral funding) bank.
