George Christensen - world was laughing at Australia & now alarmed:
"We've slipped in some anti-freespeech, authoritarian style of governing at the moment & it's just wrong. There's pushback... Prime Minister [is] out there leading the charge for an end to the lockdowns."
Prime Minister Scott Morrison's catch phrase is similar to the one George Christensen used in Federal Parliament that he was condemned for:
'We need to live with Covid-19, not in constant fear of it.'
"That should be the policy of this country but its' not at the moment."
“The first of 7700 doses of Sotrovimab quietly slipped into Australia 3 weeks ago. We have waited some time. It now has [TGA] provisional approval for vulnerable patients, such as the elderly & immunocompromised.”
“monoclonal antibodies suggests that it can [modify miserable trajectory] – but only when they are given early. COVID-19 patients treated in a trial of one such drug called Sotrovimab exhibited an 79% relative reduction in hospitalisation and deaths.”
A NSW MP equates vaccine passports with immunisation register:
“I am keen to point out that they already exist & have done so for a long time. The Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) is a national register that records vaccines given to all people in Australia."
Mark Coure MP supported No Jab No Play/Pay which paved the way and helped lay the groundwork for this thinking.
It is true pre-school children are denied access to preschool if they have not received vaccines according to schedule.
Facebook claims they don't even have enough staff because of pandemic. This is utter bullshit. They are all online. Making a shitload of money. They can afford to pay staff and no doubt they choose not to put enough on board to deal with all the censorship they are dishing out.
'The corruption of the best is the worst of all' - why Commonwealth countries seem to be experiencing the strongest governmental responses to Covid-19 with a focus on expanding police powers. facebook.com/discernable/vi….
"Peter Hitchens posits that 'the freer you were...if you were ultimately unfit to exercise freedom or unwilling to defend it...then the greater your fall will be.'"
Crikey: "Not all #antilockdown protesters on Saturday were conspiracy-theorists – many were ordinarily law-abiding Australians who just wanted to have their say. Here's how the anti-lockdown message spread from the extreme to the mainstream [Unlocked]" crikey.com.au/2021/07/26/not…
I think they underestimate how many 'mainstream' people care and were there
Still riddled with smears to silence dissent
What about Crikey reporting on vaccine extremism in times like these?
"It's not just Julian [Assange] in gaol for all the BS we've just talked about it's also about how we're going to go forward because at the moment we have almost a mirror of what's happening to Julian happening to society."
"We have countries turning their backs on their citizens, for example Julian, but Julian's not alone here. I see Julian as being a benchmark of what might happen and what is actually happening now to all of us."
