Brad The Turk Shoots At Young Aussie Beach Invaders

Coronavirus cases in NSW rise again, beachgoers slammed for not keeping social distance.

Agitated Brad Hazzard believes New South Wales beaches belong to him and the government – theirs to ‘give’:

“I have to express a degree of disappointment and agitation about the fact that some people, when the rules are relaxed, when we try and do the right thing by giving people the opportunity to have some outside exercise, [they] are disregarding the very strong message of social distancing,” he said.
 

Health Minister Brad Hazzard said it was worrying that people still could not be trusted.” – The ABC’s Paige Cockburn

 

“My message to the community is, as the councils try to do the right thing by giving a little more in the way of space and time to try and enjoy the sort of things we traditionally enjoy, you’ve got to stick with the 1.5-metre social distancing.”

 
We’ve seen this linkage made by panicking sissies in government several times now: cases go up = denounce the beachgoers. The time has come for mass civil disobedience to put these people – ministers, Premiers, the Prime Minister, “health officials” and police – back in their place. And I can assert this confidently on ANZAC Day: yes, the (small) dangers are worth it to preserve democracy and the rule of law.

    Some of the news organisations seem to be in league with this. They long lens down the length of time the beach which pulls the people at the further end of the picture closer together, looking like its more crowded. I was on Maroubra Beach on Thursday afternoon. Beautiful day water crystal clear, simply magic. People enjoying themselves and properly social distancing. The effect was spoiled by the lifeguards in their buggies driving through gaps with flasing lights and berating people on the loudspeakers to dry off and leave. Everyone was doing the right thing. Next day the beach is closed. Why does Health Hazzard still have a voice in this? He should have been locked in steerage when the Ruby Princess left Port Kembla, never to return.

    “Long lens down the length of the beach” it should read.

    .. all the new cases are health facilities or old aged care.

    Get f’d Brad.

    Led by “the Science” Towards a Medical Despotism?

    Imagine crashing an economy and imposing what is effectively a police state, with all the concomitant evils that will lead to, in order to deal with an illness with a case-fatality rate not significantly greater than a bad flu season. Is that rational? Is that proportional? Is that being led by the science?

  5. Michael Lewis

    Should be renamed Mr Ruby Hazzard – a Public Health Hazard Prince.

  6. Delta A

    Every Australian should be very worried hearing Hazzard and co talking like this.

    Some of us have been saying same since the Totalitarians banned > 500 people on Bondi beach, with retards on the OT saying the Cops would fire on us.

    Duterte may have been threatening so in the Philippines, but this isn’t a Third World sh1thole – yet.

  8. Beachcomber

    We already know it, and it makes no difference to the Government/Deep State and ABC/media; but evidence continues to accumulate to show that economic shut-down and social lock-down achieve nothing other than a crashed economy and a police state.

    Guess What? US States Without Lockdowns Are Faring No Worse Than the Lockdown States
    No worse on the covid-1984 front and far better on all the non-covid fronts

    BTW. The Governor of South Dakota is hot, very hot.

    We get Berejiklian and the Palace Chook.

  12. Leo G

    Yesterday, NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said she would like to see testing rates exceed 8,000 a day.
    “We need it to understand what’s happening in the broader population,” Mr Hazzard said.
    “I’d like to make this very clear to our residents of New South Wales: if you have any symptoms whatsoever, as little as an itchy throat, a runny nose, a temperature, the Government wants you to come forward and get tested.”

    Very poor advice at the start of the ryegrass hayfever season and at a time when the incidence of unidentified community CV-19 infected and contagious is only about 1 in 100,000.
    None of the people the NSW premier wants to come forward for testing are likely to be infected- considering they are a supplementary group to those who recently have had close contact with a CV-19 case.
    Also consider that many of them would be carers of frail aged family members who’d be greatly disadvantaged by their carer getting a false-positive result (which would be far more likely than a true-positive result).

    You mean just like nationalists believe the country belongs to the government and is theirs to determine who gets to live where?
    If only you could hear what an open border loon you sound like 😉

    The time has come for mass civil disobedience to put these people – ministers, Premiers, the Prime Minister, “health officials” and police – back in their place.

    Please no.
    Anything today’s mob would replace our problematic government with would be much, much worse.

    Now is the time to maybe actually learn something about politics.
    Until then one shouldn’t romanticize revolutions.

    The Yartz community already had the begging bowl out on last Thursday’s 7.30, saying that e.g. The Sydney Theatre Company won’t return to normal patronage levels immediately* and asking for more Government handouts – the relevant Federal Minister, Paul Fletcher, saying the Yartz already had $4 Bil thrown at them through JobSeeker and JobKeeper.

    Dr David Gruen is the Federal Statistician overlooking things (Hospitality suffering worse than Yartz) – what’s his view of the CMOs’ lockdown Policy?

    *Are they a “special” case?

    Many businesses’ patronage won’t resume immediately, if at all.

    You constantly conflate locking people in their homes with locking out people from somewhere they’ve got no right to be.

    Let’s take two test cases.

    No.1
    (a) When I lock my gate at night am I depriving others of their rights?
    (b) If a club with, say, about 1500 members who (via a company structure) jointly own their freehold say that their premises are a members and members’ guests only area, are they depriving others of their rights?
    (c ) When the Melbourne Cricket Club, with about 100,000 members, say that their premises are a members and members’ guests only area, are they depriving others of their rights?
    (d) If, say, Nauru, with a population of about 12,000 declared that it had a dual character, both nation state and private club, and declared its borders closed not in a government capacity but in the capacity of joint owners of club property, would they be they depriving others of their rights?
    (e) If any other nation state likewise closed its borders in a self-proclaimed dual capacity as a private club, would they be depriving others of their rights?

    Case study 2 to follow.

  16. MACK

    Analysis of the Chinese data showed that almost all infections were caught indoors. Most cases here are from overseas, cruise liners or aged care facilities – where are the Australian data showing there is a risk outdoors? Put up or shut up.

  17. Shelley

    Along similar lines. Had a beautiful walk through a national park today, followed by a trip to a local bakery. The bakery had the social distancing crosses on the floor. People were observing these and standing where directed, however one poor soul couldn’t quite see the display case and stepped a few feet from the cross to where he could observe the offerings in the display case a little better. The woman behind the counter lost it, started yelling at him – ‘get back, get back’. I walked out and went elsewhere for my pie and coffee. I get that she could be fined by an over zealous State government but in this case there were six people in the store and the guy was still a distance from other people (just not standing on the designated X). People are being ridiculous.

  18. Tim Neilson

    Case study 2

    Mediaeval England, governed by the feudal system, in which rights of local, regional and national government are coterminous with land ownership.

    (a) If a yeoman holding freehold socage tenure orders person X off his land, is he depriving X of his rights?
    (b) if the local squire, who owns the manor (i.e is as landowner is owed socage tenure duties by the yeomanry and copyholders, but owes feudal duties to the mesne lord) orders that X is not allowed on his land (i.e. anywhere on the manor) is he depriving X of his rights?
    (c ) If the mesne lord, as landowner of all his manors (i.e. is owed feudal duties by each local squire, but himself owes knights’ services to the King’s tenant in chief) orders that X is not allowed on his land (i.e. anywhere on any of the manors of which his land is comprised) , is he depriving X of his rights?
    (d) If a peer of the realm as landowner by right of being the King’s tenant in chief (i.e. being owed knights’ service by mesne lords, but himself owing military service to the King) orders that X is not allowed on his land (i.e. anywhere in the county, shire or borough of which he is lord) , is he depriving X of his rights?
    (e) If the King, as ultimate owner of all land in the kingdom, orders that X is not allowed anywhere in his realm, is he depriving X of his rights?

    If the answer is neither “yes” to all or “no” to all, please explain why the answer is not the same in each case.

    Isn’t that very decent of Brad Sissy Haz-rad? Imagine councils giving us back our freedoms, how kind of Brad and them. How exactly Brad did beachgoers spread the Wuhan Virus Flu to whom? Just making things up again Brad? Wil you be prosecuting the Chinese shelf strippers who exported the goods to China? Will you be confiscating Chinese property to pay for this stupidity? As if our sissies will do anything against their Chinese masters.

    So much for social distancing and quarantining.

    What a joke.

  23. Beachcomber

    From the outset, there was substantial doubt within the medical research establishment.about the excitement for a new ‘flu virus pandemic.

    Letter to the editor: Plenty of coronaviruses but no SARS-CoV-2

    ……. it is surprising to see that all the attention focused on a virus whose mortality ultimately appears to be of the same order of magnitude as that of common coronaviruses or other respiratory viruses such as influenza or respiratory syncytial virus, while the four common HCoV diagnosed go unnoticed although their incidence is high.

    But of course, any reasonable questions were all drowned out in the manufactured pandemic hysteria and the orgasmic frenzy of statist excesses.

  24. Leo G

    When questioned about US President Donald Trump’s recent comments on remedies, including the suggestion that disinfectant could be injected into people’s bodies to fight coronavirus, Mr Hazzard was succinct.
    “I watch Mr Trump with amazement, that’s all I can really say.”

    Should we accept that the ABC and the NSW Health Minister honestly represented the context of President Trump’s remark?
    I don’t think so.
    The President attended a coronavirus task force briefing on Thursday. At the meeting a Dr Bill Bryan described new research demonstrating the coronavirus did not survive long in solar light, warmer temperatures, or more humid conditions and that disinfectants were effective against it.
    Following the meeting the President commented on the research discussed.

    “And then I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it [the virus] out in a minute. One minute. And is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside, or almost a cleaning, cause you see it gets in the lungs.”

    If the ABC and a NSW Health Minister are prepared to misrepresent the US President’s expectations about medical responses to the pandemic, what assurance has the Australian public that the ABC and state governments won’t misrepresent our expectations.

  25. Rob MW

    Health Minister Brad Hazzard said it was worrying that people still could not be trusted.”

    Now that’s really funny, however, he trusts people enough not to drive on the wrong side of the road. Umm…. does he even know that a very specific population cohort has already been identified as most at risk and that nearly all people not in that cohort are not at risk, other than maybe getting the shit’s ?

    Maybe target the at risk cohort and let everybody else get back to work, school and play. – just a thought !

    Allowing health officials to control the police is what ?? – (a) mind-blowingly stupid.

    Dear Mr Hazzard – get a fucking grip.

  26. candy

    I think he’s defensive because it was his ministry, the Health Department, that let the ill people, on stretchers even, from the Ruby Princess into the general population to infect many and cause most of the deaths from corona in Australia.

    In a sense, he is responsible. I think he is going aggro on people because of that and knows he is responsible.

  27. Rockdoctor

    Watched The Great Escape today on Fox, a couple of days ago one of the boys showed us his border pass to get back into Queensland. All I thought was “papers please?”

    Honestly the research I have done on Hazzard doddering old fool is a compliment, residents of the northern beaches need to eject this tool or is that reserved for deplorables like Abbott?

  28. Hay Stockard

    By George.The bounder. He is a c-hunt. Almost unbelievably arrogant, condescending and such,a pompous wrong headed piece of dog shit.
    People around,Dee Why way, and I know there is at least one of you on here, I’m looking at you

    The politicians who face the voters before the rally round the flag sentiment wears off will probably do quite nicely out of the virus authoritarianism. The others might think back to incidents like this when it comes time to make the election night concession call.

    The way things are going, the latter will include Morrison if Labor switch to Chalmers and frame the next election as a choice between the past and the future. All those young people whose working lives have been smashed and private lives strangled (primarily for the benefit of oldies) will have little patience for a government which dishes up another large serving of “have a go” trickle-down – with most vested interests (including a stagnant public sector closed to most younger workers) relatively untouched by “reforms”.

  30. miltonf

    Bolt-
    The virus panic has created an authoritarian state which divides us into the rulers and the ruled – and politicians seem unwilling to surrender their new power.

    Too bloody right. Doesn’t matter if it’s LNP or ALP. The political class is our enemy.

  31. miltonf

    All those young people whose working lives have been smashed and private lives strangled (primarily for the benefit of oldies) will have little patience for a government which dishes up another large serving of “have a go” trickle-down
    Tehan’s comments last week or the week before were despicable.

  32. mareeS

    We live a street away from our local beach, the council has meshed off all amenities that it can onshore, but cannot send us off the beach below the high water mark.

    Citizens should be aware that councils have no jurisdiction beyond the high water mark, they cannot prevent you entering the ocean waters, that is a State maritime jurisdiction, so surf and swim all you like until the beasts at State level decide you can’t.

    Nobody has chased us off our local beach yet, and would never even try.

  33. Up The Workers!

    The only “social distancing” this so-called “heinous crime” of sitting on a beach calls for, is the distancing of the hissy-fitting totalitarian Leftard nanny, Brad Hazzard, from his Ministerial salary, job-title and responsibilities.

    As far as any societally-worthwhile “social distancing” is concerned, there should be a concerted attempt to ensure that all eligible males and females (and not members of the other 67 Leftard genders) of the A.L.P. or Green persuasion are prevented by the most stringent measures from ever copulating and breeding, lest we have a continuation of the current “lethal Leftard stupidity pandemic”.

    If the current Leftard Police-State ban on kiddies going to school continues long enough, I am afraid that all the current crop of graffitiing truant mini-vandals might be fit for if they are dumb enough, with only half an education, is as a knuckle-dragging, illiterate, innumerate, wallet-stuffing numbskull with a secure Cabinet position in a future Labor(sic) Misgovernment!

  34. Up The Workers!

    Given the infamous “Ruby Princess” farce, when the comically bumbling NSW Health Minister allowed Peking Pox patients on stretchers to be disembarked from the infested plague-ship and mixed amongst the local community, it would seem that by far the biggest health Hazzard that exists in New South Wales, is the New South Wales Health Minister himself – Brad Hazzard.

    How many of the current New South Wales cases of Peking Pox are directly or indirectly as a result of his almost Labor(sic)-like impeccable incompetence in the performance of his duties?

    Of all the citizens in NSW, this walking, talking Health-Hazzard has arguably caused more Peking Pox cases than anybody else, so from that perspective alone (if from no other), you could say that he “has skin in the game”.

    He needs to be out of the game.

  35. struth

    You get straight back on the beach again and again and again.
    You protest outside his house.
    You go to their houses.
    You make it personal.
    Do you really think letting these people track you a good idea?

  36. Is this guy our Hazzard County sheriff?

  37. ryki

    I’m still waiting for Catallaxy to issue a formal apology to anti-vaxers.

    The people who warned you all that if governments can compel people into vaccines because of a “germ” they can compel people to do anything.

  38. Mother Lode

    Sooo…is the uptick in cases among beacgoers? Or people following the precious social distancing guidelines?

  39. Amadeus

    Hazzard appears to be worse than the virus itself. Millions of NSW citizens locked up because 20-30 old people passed away.
    You can’t make this stuff up…public spaces are owned by the NSW Government and Councils? Not the last time I looked, but then slap-up a few “new regulations” to control citizens and suddenly the “State” owns and runs everything.
    Whodathunk?

    during a three-hour window for exercise at Coogee, Clovelly and Maroubra beaches.

    Its designed to cram as many people into one place in a limited window as possible so they can claim people are forcing them to shut shit.

    Its the equivalent of a domestic violence perp screaming “look what you made me do” after setting some stupid task designed for their victim to fail.

    Awful people

    believe me

    “Health Minister Brad Hazzard said it was worrying that people still could not be trusted.”

    If we can’t trust them to look after their own health, then I guess we better change elections – we’ve got an App for that, US Democrats have one that works, right? Trust me, I’m a used car salesman multi-national CEO politician.

  44. Twostix

    Near me there’s a tiny park consisting of just a swing that nobody uses in a place nobody goes. The road it’s on road terminates into a dirt track in heavy timber which most people think is a driveway.

    The lonely swing in this hidden clearing in the timber has been literally locked up.

    Ugly optics for any young family in the area.

  45. Judge Dredd

    Yes, if you wanted to change the situation you need to protest against the individuals issuing fines and handing people notices. That’s how you change the status quo. Go to the police officers house and protest there, go to the DHS officers house and protest there.
    A local police officer is human too and will not want the social shame of being known as a “bad guy” in their local community.

    People in Government really do think that it’s all theirs to give and take away as they see fit. That defines dictatorship without rule-of-law.
