I’VE listened to 2GB blowhards raving on all day against 1) the proposed BLM protests; and 2) the Queensland Premier’s decision to maintain border restrictions. The whataboutism of Ray Hadley and his stablemates is no less irrational than the inconsistencies of our “medical officials.” In any case, the NSW government didn’t bring this action in the Supreme Court to control the (non-existent) community transmission of COVID-19. No, they brought it to maintain a charade. Put simply, Gladys Berejiklian was persuaded the political cost of a lockdown double-standard would be far bigger than any damage done by shutting down a race grievance gathering. What Italy was at the start of coronavirus hysteria, America became this week in the local reading of electoral costs and benefits in relation to Floyd-mania. Australia’s current leaders are the worst, shallowest, dumbest and most easily distracted in history. Back to the court decision : I like the sugar hit of schadenfreude as much as the next man but I cannot celebrate a ruling that presumes to “ban” Australians from their own streets to say whatever it is they want to say. Good luck to the BLM clowns if they choose to defy the court.
