Congratulations to Delta Kay and the Arakwal mob for refusing to endorse the group of ratbags baying for personal freedoms on Saturday, 5 September.
Do these people live under martial law? Are they subjected to totalitarian rule? Has their land been overtaken by an invading force? No.
They’ve been asked to endure a different set of conditions while the worst health crisis in a century is ravaging the entire planet.
The thing that has been interesting has been the increasing synergy between the local ‘alternative’ viewpoints, and the international extreme right wing. COVID-19 (even its existence), 5G, anti vax, alleged freedom infringements, are all massive concerns of fascist nutjobs (QAnon et al) who base most of their arguments on outdated conspiracy theories.
Perhaps the marchers could try to do something good for the collective, i.e. society, rather than selfishly whinge about this ‘outrageous attack’(?) on their personal freedoms.
The way things are going, we may be seeing glassy-eyed hippies marching down Burringbar St with SLRs bemoaning the impact of gun laws on their personal rights. God bless America, er… Australia.
