Their cause is idiotic but I defend their right to assemble

 
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.

  1. Old School Conservative

    A similar thought from Dellingpole:

    I think the Black Lives Matter protests — certainly the UK version — are dangerous, stupid and wrong for a number of reasons. But I’m grateful to them for one thing: they’ve made it quite impossible for anyone with even half a brain to see the ongoing lockdown as anything other than a ridiculous joke.

  2. Tel

    If you believe that the main purpose of the law courts is to be highly consistent, then since everyone else is locked down, so too the protesters should also be locked down. On the other hand, if you believe the main purpose of the law courts is to apply common sense to a situation, then none of us should be locked down and it is entirely reasonable for anyone to protest, provided they do so peacefully and don’t set fire to stuff and throw bricks.

    Then we could get into the concept of why government should issue a “permit to protest” in the first place … the whole idea of a protest is to put forward an opinion that is not permitted. I’m OK with any Supreme Court that is willing to abolish the entire notion of such a permit … might not happen anytime soon. Finally … protest does not require anyone to march in the streets … anything you do that attracts attention and puts your ideas forward could be considered a protest, and there are more creative ways to do it.

    From the SMH

    Justice Fagan added the right to gather for such a cause is not being “taken away”, it is being “deferred”.

    A common sense judgement.
    Should have been ‘deferred’ in Brisbane too. For a year.

  4. Lilliana

    If they want to protest than that is their choice but the court made the correct decision – either we are all in lock down or no one is. Either way the decision highlights that the current situation is unsustainable and is a being used as a political weapon to control the populous.

    Not while a law abiding New South Welshman can’t have a proper funeral or wedding.

    Some wonderful people have died alone and afraid in nursing homes and hospitals and then have been buried alone.

    That’s the tragedy, not these pieces of shit not getting license to rabble rouse.

  7. a reader

    I support their right to protest…if they keep social distancing and are fined for not complying. I can’t go to church and do the usual things we do (like singing) no matter how big the church and how good the social distancing because the cops will come in and fine us. Yes, seriously, even if you have your only 50 people in St Mary’s Cathedral and spread them evenly around that enormous building.

    If it’s safe for them to be out protesting, it is safe for me to live my normal life. I’m sick of this one rule for us and another for them, especially if its because of their political persuasion

    Good summary. The country was forced to celebrate ANZAC Day on our driveways. These fucking xunts of things can do the same. It’s wrong on both counts but fuck em, they’re vermin.

  9. a reader

    ITK…absolutely. We had a close family relative cark it in the middle of the CCP virus BS. Instead of the hundreds who would have gathered to mourn her, we had 10 and half of the family weren’t allowed to travel from their home state for it. ANd those 10 were forced to sit at opposite ends of the pews from each other-children separated from their parents ffs!

    The organisers were hoping the Premier would accept the special pleading and allow the assembly- thereby affirming their exceptional status. Exceptionalism is what BLM is all about.

  12. mh

    Here in Qld our Premier made exceptions for Aboriginal funerals

    The Queensland Government has waived a ban on large funeral gatherings to allow up to 80 people to mourn the death of a “very significant” Indigenous leader in north Queensland.

  13. Tel

    The organisers were hoping the Premier would accept the special pleading and allow the assembly- thereby affirming their exceptional status. Exceptionalism is what BLM is all about.

    That’s a good point … consistency wins in this case.

    Consistency is very important, and common sense is also important, and freedom is important … they are all important. We have fascism … but hey at least it is consistent fascism and everyone gets their dose.

    I see the BLM protest is calling for “solidarity”, which is interesting because so far none of them have shown any solidarity towards my house arrest … nor solidarity towards L-plate drivers getting busted for trying to learn to drive, nor any solidarity towards harmless golfers and beach goers getting blamed for nursing home deaths that had nothing whatsoever to do with them. Maybe it could work that if they were more willing to show solidarity with others then others would show solidarity with them … worth a try! We could find common ground for some kind of agreement here.

    I am somewhat sympathetic towards reconciliation and settlement of at least some of the debts of the past, to the extent that such an exercise can be done. I’m not enthusiastic about creating a perpetual class of people treated in an exceptional manner. Someone told me we are in this together, but so far I see “no evidence” that such a statement is true.

    No lockdown? OK!
    Then why are we still?
    “Experts” said lockdown.
    2GB “blowhard” AJ was against the lockdown. Friday 2GB “blowhards” were against the inconsistency of protest OK while other activities weren’t.

  15. Tim Neilson

    Personally I’d prefer to see the following sequence of events:
    (a) the pseudo-“protesters” being subjected to water cannon, tear gas, rubber bullets and batons for breaking the laws that, no matter how odious, are still the law;
    (b) general recognition that the laws are repulsively totalitarian and need to be revoked as a matter of urgency, culminating in the Hunchback of Spring Street being subjected to Mussolini/Ceaucescu treatment.

    But in this less than ideal world I agree, CL, that the least bad option is for the unworthy “protest” to be the catalyst for reclaiming rightful liberties.

  16. stackja

    Tim I agree end lockdown. But why single out Dan? All premiers are the same. Voters need to remove all premiers ASAP. And see all “experts” relegated to low level desk jobs. And end all trade with the source of the virus, Red China.

  17. BorisG

    ustralia’s current leaders are the worst, shallowest, dumbest and most easily distracted in history.

    Completely wrong. Australia’s leaders, alongside Greek and Taiwanese, have been the smartest in this pandemic. You can question the need for the lockdowns, but at least in Australia they were smart enough to have worked. In most other western countries, the lockdowns were more severe, lasted longer and the death toll was 10 to 100 times higher.

  19. HP

    My kid is planning to join the Melbourne edition of this.
    Personally, I am with Dellingpole on this: dangerous, wrong and stupid, but he at that age that they stop listening.

    Told him this protest was banned in NSW because COVID. He says: the number of sick are so low, it ridiculous they ban this. And he added words to the effect that “government sucks”.

    There was a rare moment of agreement.

    As far as I am concerned, he can go. It’s his time to be stupid, I guess.
    Lord knows I had mine.

    The upside:
    1. The hypocrisy of the Andrew government will be on display.
    2. There will be no “second wave” when this is done. People will demand to end these shite measures, because it is clear for all to see they were pointless.
    3. Even more people agree that Andrews is odious as a premier.

    Dan was elected because Vic voters are gullible. NSW has football and Vic hasn’t. Victoria has protest, NSW doesn’t. Victoria prefer protest to football? No wonder Dan was elected.

  22. Now now we need to maintain social distancing. Modelling from a prestigious UK university showed that Australia could have tens of thousands of deaths if no action was taken.

    Stay in your home, if you must go outside for five minutes to retrieve bread and water, please do not touch or talk to the drones.

  23. Joanna Smythe

    We all know BLM don’t believe in anything to do with Law and Order so why would they follow any directive from the Court. It was all a waste of time and taxpayer money.

    This is amazing logic only possible in the mind of an academic.

    Could it be then that lockdowns you absolutely demanded made things worse altogether, mcfly?

  25. Howard Hill

    Someone needs to remake this and add “you must not protest, unless of course you feel you have to protest” 🙂

    Also, I love the breadth of your comment Tel.

  27. Boris

    Could it be then that lockdowns you absolutely demanded made things worse altogether, mcfly?

    I wish I could take credit for the lockdowns that saved Australia from the mayhem in places like Italy Belgium or Sweden but I prefer to be humble.

    The idea that lockdowns increase transmission and fatality rate is so hilarious that can be proposed for a Melbourne comedy festival. I am not kidding. Just look at NZ, which had one of the most severe lockdowns.

  28. Boris

    You can’t please Cats. Allow protests and be accused of hypocrisy. Ban protests, and be accused of stifling free speech and I don’t know what.

    I think the Gladys is Australia’s best premier. I mean McGovern is ok too, but I won’t support labour as a matter of principle. And I suspect he might be too soft on China.

    Will Dan be charging BLM for policing costs?

    Or is that just for holding the wrong political view?

  30. Igor

    Your right to protest does not include the right to interfere with any and all my my rights, including the right to go where I want without being accusted or attacked. It includes the right for my business and property not to be destroyed (including public property my taxes pay for).

    In further includes my right to:

    1. Go to work
    2. Visit my family
    3. Visit and be visited by friends
    4. Buy a coffee
    5. Sit in the park
    6. Have a picnic
    7. Take my child for a driving lesson
    8. Commemorate Anzac Day
    9. Cross the border
    10. Express an opionion that is not of the extreme left.

    …… oh wait……

  31. duncanm

    If any of them want to turn it into a riot, have the police there to clamp down hard.

  33. Ed Case

    Free Speech doesn’t cover being an arsehole, the idea anyone would want to lay down their life for arseholes is beyond ridiculous.

  34. Bruce of Newcastle

    Nope, any protestors above 50 correctly social distanced ones should be arrested.
    Justice for all without fear or favour. Without justice a democracy is impossible to maintain.
    They can have their protest after the lockdown rules are relaxed to allow it.

  35. Shy Ted

    Give them the bill. Monitor by drone, CCTV etc. Destroy all the film except related to crime. No masks. Interfering with the normal flow of public access is a crime. No comeback if you get the sack because your boss doesn’t like the bad publicity you bring (yeah, I know they’re all unemployed). Lose a day’ pay or benefits. Must carry ID but no crime no problem.

  36. Thefrollickingmole

    Here’s one example of a corona casualty which will never be counted.
    Chap here booked a month off for holidays with the family, off overseas
    Corona hits, instead of a holiday he spends a month trapped at home drink
    Drinking piss and eating too much.(he can’t go to the gym and he’s a gym rat normally)
    Makes a cock of himself one night while pissed, nothing apologies didn’t fix.
    Then he returns to work and has a minor injury which unfortunately takes 4 weeks to resolve.

    Next thing his position is being made redundant by Perth office, after 9 Years of work he’s been shafted.

    I put to you without the corona lockdown and removal of his other recreational outlets he would still have a job.

    Their cause is idiotic but I defend their right to assemble

    This is the problem. Libertarians and conservatives play fair while the Left plays to win at all costs.

    Do Leftists support our right to assemble?

    They shut us down on Twitter, FB, traditional media… basically everywhere. They don’t recognize our right to exist much less assemble.

    But we always take the high ground… and we always lose.

    The Left have deconstructed the family, masculinity, Christianity, in short everything. They have stripped life of all meaning and replaced it with empty slogans about diversity and equality and other inanities that get more absurd by the day and only serve to divide us further. Now they want to deconstruct the police. This threatens civilization itself.

    Yet all libertarians can come up with is glib platitudes like ‘I defend your right to assemble’.

    It seems we are doomed.

    When they tie us to the stake and light the fire I’m sure we’ll defend burning heretics as their right to free speech.

  38. Yarpos

    I guess their main grievance is black deaths in custody. One of the key solutions to this is the behave in such a way that you dont end up in custody, especially when affected by substances. The majority of Australians never experience police custody. Its really not normal to accept that as part of life.

  39. Yeah, having principles is “glib”.

    But *just shoot them or they’ll burn uscalive with their so called free speech lol*

    Fuck off.

  40. notafan

    We have white Aboriginals protesting in major cities.

    As for the places with huge problems like Alice Springs, not so much.

    Alcohol fueled violence, murder and mayhem daily.

    Black lives don’t really matter do they BLM?

  41. I’ve seen people demanding equality with deaths in custody.

    Maybe if black father’s taught their sons not to kill themselves?

    Do these young unfortunates know their fathers? Did their mothers choose to be single mothers?

    Unless they mean to increase white deaths in custody…probably not.

  42. calli

    The problem here isn’t “free speech” or “right to assemble”. These are givens.

    It’s hypocrisy. Either all are allowed, or none are allowed. Playing favourites doesn’t work in families and it doesn’t work in nations.

    Having softened us up with fear mongering, the destroyers follow up with race baiting.

  43. Iampeter

    Protesting is not speech and should be illegal like any other activity that interferes with people going about their affairs. If you want to “assemble” then hire a convention center and have an assembly.
    Although I don’t expect this to be understood by people who don’t even understand the far more basic fact that a tech company deplatforming you is not censorship, but is in fact free speech.

  44. duncanm

    “Deaths in custody” – https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/ng-interactive/2018/aug/28/deaths-inside-indigenous-australian-deaths-in-custody

    some of these are insane. I’ll pick the first insane one I found at line 2

    – Kumanjayi Walker – shot by police officer whom he stabbed, when he went at the other partner. This was the second arrest attempt; the first one was abandoned when Walker went at them with an axe.

    here’s another:

    Patrick Fisher fell from a 13th-floor balcony in the Waterloo public housing block in Sydney in February 2018 while allegedly trying to climb down to escape from the police

  45. Both calli and Peter are right (or half right).

    You can protest in public spaces. You don’t have a right to get to a shop before 11 am on the other hand.

    *EVERYONE ELSE MUST GET OUTT OF MY WAY*

    That makes no sense at all.

  46. Actually yesterday was an example of the power of talkback radio with many calling in to talk about the sacrifices they had made to comply with lockdown. In particular those who had attended funerals. I did not hear if he mentioned it but Hadley’s own wedding had to be postponed and he had been a very big supporter of the Governments lockdown initially.

    The protest seeks to take advantage of the outrage in USA but the situation is nothing like there. The most recent example of a death in custody I have seen given is from 5 years ago in a hospital situation. No surprise the NSW organiser is Socialist Alliance.

  47. calli

    Seems some want to the right to “shop” before 11am, though.

    With the help of a house brick.

    The urge to break the law and hurt others in the process is strong in these ones.

  48. Shaun

    The restrictions should be lifted completely. The black lives matter protestors are showing more guts than the rest of the population. Citizens should have been protesting against the government weeks ago and now it’s taken the BLM protest to show how stupid and hypocritical these restrictions are. Time to just start ignoring them and go back to normal life.
    In SA they have allowed the protests. We have not had a local case in 40 days. Restrictions are ridiculous. In essence they are saying you will be fined if there is too many people in a pub, but if you take thousands more to a protest that is okay.
    It’s amazing how protests and riots can eradicate covid and restrictions real fast.

  51. Leo G

    Nope, any protestors above 50 correctly social distanced ones should be arrested.

    Our right to free assembly is important and should not be sacrificed on the basis that there may be a common cause in assembly for a group with an unpopular or irrational cause.
    But that right is a negative right- a right to assemble without arbitrary interference by government or other groups. If government regulation preventing an assembly does not have a clear, rational basis then it is arbitrary.
    I don’t believe the government proscription in this case is arbitrary- but the case is arguable.

    Excellent work, Timbo. You and calli are among a small number of people who’ve managed to post sensible comments on this thread.

    This bullshit either applies to everyone, or it applies to no one. No exceptions or special treatment, under any circumstances, including middle class collectivists demonstrating in public (again) that they’re utterly clueless obnoxious hypocritical knobheads.

  53. a happy little debunker

    Considering that indigenous groups have complained that they themselves are particularly at high risk to Covid 19 – due to their many and varied ‘co-morbidities’ and that they need ‘extra special’ assistance in minimising their exposure – surely this ruling will save many Indigenous lives?

    It is not as if these potential attendees cannot attend a virtual protest from home – where, if they feel so moved, they can riot and loot their own lounge rooms…

  64. Struth

    Our problem here is the government.
    Not BLM.
    The protests actually expose the governments of Australia as the criminal outfits they are.

    The global socialists in our swamps, throughout the west, need these protests to be big, be violent, and to go on for some time.
    Goal, crushing the west.
    But, but, but, if they let them go ahead, they have PROVED BEYOND DOUBT, that they did not lock their nations down out of concern for anyone’s health.
    It was for political reasons and is criminal behaviour with intent.
    They were not frightened into totalitarianism at all (for our sakes, sniff)
    They cannot hope for forgiveness in ruining our nations and taking control by force, out of genuine concern for our lives, as they are trying to spin it.
    They did it because they thought they could, for a power grab that has yet to be released, and they were right.
    It was intentional criminality.

    And yet token empty threats of ringleaders being fined amounts smaller than the average log book fine for truckies are threatened by people who have done far worse to this nation than the BLM brainwashed will ever do, and should be in Jail.
    All State premiers and the Prime Minister should be arrested immediately upon being obvious that their totalitarianism and assault on Australian lives was pure politics.
    Those ringleaders…….the national cabinet.
    Which will be evident tonight, and by what has already been said by them , we know their response will be minor and token if anything.

    Whether you still believe the rot about the virus or not, and are still at the stage of quoting bullshit figures, that is all irrelevant.
    What matters here is that by allowing these protests to go ahead, it proves the government/s don’t believe those figures, they don’t believe their own bullshit figures, never did, and therefore grabbing authoritarian, dictatorial control by them was done for other reasons.
    Criminal and devastating reasons attacking Australians in their millions.

    They are criminals who I think deserve to be put against a wall and shot.
    However, seeing we have no capital punishment here, I will only be happy when they are jailed for life and all tax payer wealth that they have personally received is confiscated and placed back into general revenue to help pay back some of the damage they have done.

  65. thefrollickingmole

    One one hand you have an entitled bunch of attention seekers who believe in a segregated and unequal society (via never ending compo and special claims) and on the other you have a state government engaged in corona play acting to try and justify the massive fuckup lockdown has been.

    Cant they both lose?

    Cant they both lose?

    How long do you think it will take them to scream “second wave”
    The lunacy is it’s been a flat pandemic ocean of lies.
    There was never a first wave.
    It was no more than socialists taking power by force using fear as they always do, and gullible people that are so incredibly thick as to think thousands of people die every day and rebranding their CoD’s is one of the easiest achieved things to do, and no one can verify a single figure.

    Staying at home, social distancing, and public masking are effective at minimizing the spread of
    COVID-19. To the extent possible, we support the application of these public health best practices during
    demonstrations that call attention to the pervasive lethal force of white supremacy. However, as public health advocates, we do not condemn these gatherings as risky for COVID-19 transmission. We support them as vital to the national public health and to the threatened health specifically of Black people in the United States. We can show that support by facilitating safest protesting practices without detracting from demonstrators’ ability to gather and demand change. This should not be confused with a permissive stance on all gatherings, particularly protests against stay-home orders. Those actions not only oppose public health interventions, but are also rooted in white nationalism and run contrary to respect for Black lives. Protests against systemic racism, which fosters the disproportionate burden of COVID-19 on Black communities and also perpetuates police violence, must be supported.

    The majority of Australians never experience police custody. Its really not normal to accept that as part of life.

    Arbitrary house arrest on the other hand …

    Your average Aussie is probably handling the lockdowns &c. better than the Aboriginal Industry elites.

    Did anyone else see all the hospital workers at some undisclosed city in the U.S., standing outside their hospital, applauding and cheering on protestors, on last night’s news?
    ’nuff said!

    lol at new lockdown guidelines in some US county –

    “Outdoor social gatherings of up to 12 people
    Protests of up to 100”

    Absolutely ridiculous.

    Looking at some of the young “aboriginal” women representing the protesters on Friday night’s news, they will have no trouble maintaining a personal perimeter of 1.5 meters. It’s called their waistline.

    Give them the bill. Monitor by drone, CCTV etc.

    Indeed. If it’s good enough for Milo Yiannopoulos. Did he ever pay the extortion demand from VicPol, by the way?

    Just passing by is another illiterate, inbred Moby.

    Oh yes! By saying I support the rights of the rather lame and unpopular (and peaceful) protests here in Australia, I am tacitly supporting the murder of black cops in the US, egged on by Antifa

    Peaceful. Funny because that’s what CNN and MSNBC call the US protests.

    That’s all you want here, right?

    Congratulations. You are the proud winner of the Useful Idiot of the Year award.

  83. Go fuck yourself chump.

    I’m not accountable for the lies shat out by little Brian Stelter or Rachael Madcow.

    The protests in Australia have been peaceful and pretty much ignored, no one cares. Rent a crowd couldn’t even incite any significant discord.

    This is how little Australians cared: Aborigines think they’re full of shit.

    https://www.news.com.au/national/black-lives-matter-protesters-in-australia-are-just-rentacrowds/news-story/9c06a20372ff0b828b18b1222324b659

    An Indigenous academic says the Black Lives Matter protests were “ridiculous” and the “rent-a-crowds” did not care about the real issues.

    Aboriginal Australians in custody are less likely to die than non-Aboriginal Australians in custody.

    The ‘outrage’ from protesters for deaths in custody is about as authentic as Australia Day protests.

    I and others have been asking for a long time: “Where is the outrage regarding the high rates of violence and child abuse in Aboriginal communities?”

    In early May there was a report of a young Aboriginal woman (mother of two) found dead in a wheelie bin.

    On the WAtoday webpage it was reported “a Martu elder stood in the boy’s place to receive a punishment dealt out according to customary law”—the boy referred to is the person charged with the woman’s murder. Where was the outrage?

    I could give plenty more examples of hypocrisy but won’t.

    I want to talk about why tension exists between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians, because by understanding the cause, we can find a solution.

    Most Aboriginal people are either partnered up with a non-Aboriginal person or the product of the union between an Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal person.

    It seems that we generally get along with one another. Of course, there are exceptions, as there are with the mixing of any groups or races.

    That’s a freaking joke … I mean everything about NSW right now is a joke, but this takes the cake. So, somehow these guys get to do whatever they like. How is a last minute appeal even possible?

    It’s all OK – as long as they’ve all downloaded the CovidSafe app, they’ll all (of course) be CovidSafe, and if any of them catch the virus (or anything else), it will all be the fault of Trump (and maybe of “Scotty from Marketing”).

    Trolling fuckwit.

    It’s because you’re a dishonest cur.

    Following my initial post your response was immediate, aggressive and personal. It was designed to shut me up.

    This is straight out of Leftism 101.

    ‘Toe the Party line or get ready to be abused and shut down’

    You are precisely the sort of fake libertarian/conservative that I was talking about in that post. No wonder you took it personally.

    You defend the right of Leftists to import a divisive, violent, hate-filled ideology to our shores yet aggressively attack anyone who questions it. You call that ‘principles’.

    You deserved to be trolled because you’re a phoney.

    I’m only sorry I took you seriously.

    Go ahead. Rush over to thesaurus.com and find a synonym for the word ‘cur’. Be aggressive. Get personal. It’s worked for you Leftists so far. Why stop now.

    Even the most dim observer can see the contradictions yet the powers that be are shameless in their exercise of power. This is simply raising the middle finger to the law abiding.
