Littell denied that this was a super spreader event though, saying that those affected must have picked up the virus in Michigan or New York or wherever, not at his maskless, unvaccinated, no social distancing event.
In the front of The Age there was Clive Palmer’s full page ad with anti- vaxxer Qraig Qelly face and the newspaper’s Opinion supporting their Message. We can expect $100M++ with Clive running yet another campaign for Morrison’s LNP with Ch9, and Murdoch trumpeting their message into our political atmosphere like muzak because they are “free” to do that. Responsible, no but free to take cash for comment. Would Clive’s money come their way if their opinion differed?
They are all standing shoulder to shoulder with QAnon, Proud Boys,
Qraig Kelly and yes Nazis among others amplifying their twisted message. The Germans have a saying looking back on their past, “if
you have 10 people sitting down for dinner with a Nazi you have 11 Nazis
at dinner”. Apparently it’s safe to stick our hand in fire if its
smeared with vaseline so lets all do it because “we can” and fuck us all in the process.
The EU, UK, and the USA are all experiencing a massive resurgence of Covid and are bringing back restrictions, restrictions on the unvaccinated. We can ignore that lead because we are smeared with vaseline ( 95% vaccinated ). We can play Evil Kinevil. Restrictions for what? Restrictions aren’t arbitrary are there 1) to prevent unwanted death. 2) to prevent the accelerated spread 3) but moreso to prevent overloading an already Commonwealth underfunded understaffed Public Health System 4) to be prepared for the inevitable 4th wave when winter of 2022 hits, 5)and yes, to prevent less severe lockdowns and “more freedom” for the majority of Victorians.
These right wing hypocrites are only too happy lock out Asylum Seekers, Muslims, Gays, Africans, etc etc etc but not that 5% or 300,00 Victorians that can incapacitate our Public Health and indirectly many others. We don’t have sufficient nurses, doctors or the ambos but Clive just wants a Coal Mine and the LNP in power. The other fruitcakes just want to feel the power. So advertise in Peter Costello’s Age and Murdoch’s Herald -Sun. They are only too happy to oblige and provide the opinions in support of more of that money.
Victorians have benefited from vaccination mandates of certain workers or as a temporary lockdown exemption that reduces spread when coverage is still too low. For a substantial public health gain, mandates may be justified. But the Victorian government intends to extend the lockout of the unvaccinated throughout 2022. This is disproportionate to the risks the unvaccinated pose in a population that will reach at least 93 per cent two-dose coverage by year’s end.

Where is Qraig Qelly and the freedom marchers fighting for the marriage equality minority and the heterosexually un-vaccinated? That minority that have been discriminated against for years bashed killed? Nobody is marching against this Discrimination Bill.
Australians will be able to make statements of religious belief under the protection of federal law, with warnings people could lose jobs because their sexuality is at odds with someone’s faith.
When bad employers say they cannot find workers what they mean is they are not prepared to change their business model and raise wages.

Senator McGrath would label dangerous and biased because it would make
him so transparent.
With a leader like ScaMo running the ship, the LNP’s biggest fear is the ABC installing one and installing one before the next election and turning the lights on their efforts to diminish our democracy. The foundations of which are the universal franchisement of all citizens’ right to vote, Compulsory Voting, and the ABC. McGrath prefers to tear down the house.
When Queensland Senator James McGrath gave his first speech in parliament, he made his intentions very clear – this culture warrior was on a mission to destroy the ABC. “While the ABC continues to represent only inner-city leftist views, and funded by our taxes, it is in danger of losing its social licence to operate. I am calling for a review of the ABC’s charter. And if they fail to make inroads to restore balance, then the ABC should be sold and replaced by a regional and rural broadcasting service. In the meantime, Triple J, because of its demographic dominance and clear ability to stand on its own, should be immediately sold.”
