What happened to Australia?

There is a lot on the Internet and a lot on blogs such as BRM’s about the loss of freedom due to a flu virus that has a 99.8% recovery rate. Few people died there, mostly over 85 years of age or with severe pre-existing conditions.

Returning travelers quarantining at home will be forced to download an app that combines facial recognition and geolocation. The state will text them at random times, and thereafter they will have 15 minutes to take a picture of their face in the location where they are supposed to be. Should they fail, the local police department will be sent to follow up in person. “We don’t tell them how often or when, on a random basis they have to reply within 15 minutes,” Premier Steven Marshall explained. “I think every South Australian should feel pretty proud that we are the national pilot for the home-based quarantine app.

I’m sure that the oligarchs in Washington DC would like to try that,  but in a country with more than one firearm in private hands for every citizen and trillions of rounds of ammunition, it might not be received well.  The Australians turned their firearms in, trusting their government to look out for their best interests. Oooops. 

In New South Wales, Police Minister David Elliott defended the deployment of the Australian military to enforce lockdowns, telling the BBC that some residents of the state thought “the rules didn’t apply to them.” In Sydney, where more than 5 million people have been in lockdown for more than two months, and Melbourne, the country’s second-biggest city, anti-lockdown protests were banned, and when dissenters gathered anyway, hundreds were arrested and fined, Reuters reported.

  1. Will the gov mandate everyone own a phone?
    If they do and no one pays their bill will the cell companies be mandated to not disconnect their service?
    Does no one in Aus own household cleaning supplies?
    “Throw some shrimp on the barbie” is a Aussie saying, nobody owns charcoal anymore?
    Did all the farmers in Aus stop using fertilizer?
    Are all the vehicles in Ausland electric powered now, do none need lubricants?

    Asking for a friend.

    • I’d shut my phone off and discontinue service.

      I’m sure that people are finding a way to resist. The truckers held a strike and the government bent to THEM. The propaganda ministry there is the voice that gets out from behind the Great Barrier Reef.

    • I’ve been told by many people that Australians have changed. They’re no longer what they once were and the greatest generation has all but passed.

      We will stand on the sidelines and give witness to what we see, however it goes.

        • Oh and that doesn’t take into account, for example, the Greek or Italian descended people who were born here, their parents were born here, and sometimes their grandparents were born here, who still declare they are Greek or Italian.

          Was it Roosevelt who had something to say about hyphenated Americans?

          • You are or you’re not, whether it’s American, Australian, or anything else. If you hyphenate, you’re not.

          • And do not forget that protected species, the Lebanese Muslims. Must not say anything disparaging about the “religion of peace”. To hear some of these Lebanese talk, especially the young ones, you would think they got off the boat yesterday, yet you know they have been in Australia for years and, in the majority of cases, were born there. Then you have the Somali Muslims in Victoria and South Australia, They are also a protected species. From reading the news, recently, it appears that if you are Christian, and meet in your tens or twenties for a service at your church you are penalised. Yet, if you are a Muslim, you can meet in your hundreds at the mosque and nothing happens. This is not the Australia I was born and brought up in, and fought for. It now appears the left-wing, politically correct, lunatics are truly in charge of the asylum.

          • The last couple years of wildfires in Australia have been linked to two groups. Environmentalists ‘trying’ to prove that Climate Change is real, and Muslims.

            So who got sanctioned? White farmers, ranchers, miners and truck drivers.

            Australia is lost. Bu-Bye. A Dios, amigos.

            After all, they shot the dogs and people didn’t rise up and shoot the shooters. The dumb masses accepted the deaths of the dogs.

  2. They went utterly, totally, enthusiastically lib. And now they’re locked down, forever, under the rainbow wellington boot.

    What happened? Their cities went Austin lib, who then voted the countryside out of existence. Something like that.

  3. The Aussie health ministry woman declaring the government is the sole source of correct Covid information, all else is to be dismissed. Sounds like history repeating. Hats off to the truckers telling them to go pound sand.

    Here, local health directors and governors are gleeful with their usurped illegal…err, “newly discovered”…power and control over the people paying their salary’s. Pushback and civil disobedience is starting to gain steam, hopefully it will end this idiocy over a stupid respiratory virus made into THE only thing important by the propagandists and hyperventilator’s.

    A few too many have gotten too big for their britches and need to be taken behind the woodshed for an attitude adjustment…our version of a reeducation camp, without the cozy bunkbeds and woodstove.

  4. I start to see the well-meaning Dolores Umbridge everywhere.
    After all, it is only for the common good of the public.
    Not to forget the chiiiildreeen.
    What a nightmare.

    In school I thought “1984” to be a nice utopian novel: like “Lord of the Flies” it was an adequate lecture for teenagers but quite hypothetical as a scenario like this was extremely unlikely ever to happen.
    After all, the world had just survived two World Wars, conflicts and genocides wherever you looked and totalitarian dictatorships reigned all over the globe.
    So it was clear to me and my schoolmates that all this lecturing about freedom and liberty was quite superfluous and boring because surely no one in his right mind would want to give up these rights … and we could not imagine any politician trying to usurp our democratic constitution.
    Fast forward 45 years: how utterly wrong we were!
    How to escape from this downward spiral?

    “You can vote yourself into Socialism, but you have to shoot yourself out of it!

  5. What happened to Australia ?

    Remember when they confiscated and destroyed the citizenry’s guns? That’s what happened.

    Australia has had, for quite a while at least, a bit of a fancy for the Iron Fist. As of the above date, it was clear it would be turned against the formerly law-abiding citizenry arbitrarily.
