Bill Muehlenberg: Just Put a Sock In It Magda!

She may be appearing on Victorian TV screens with a mask on, but one can think of better things that could be used. I refer of course to the new infuriating and moronic TV ads Victorians now have to endure – on top of everything else. As if months of police state conditions were not enough, now we have to endure big cheese celebs like Magda Szubanski lecturing us about how great it is to remain prisoners.

She, Waleed Aly and others are preaching to us peons about how we are all in this together. They keep lecturing us about how we are all in the same corona boat, when clearly, we are NOT. They may well be in luxury yachts and cruise ships, but most of us are in leaky row boats, getting nowhere fast.

And that is literally the case for so many of these snobbish elites who lecture us: they DO in fact have and enjoy their nice yachts, along with the fancy mansions, right on the seaside. So even if they were locked down just like the rest of us, who would not want to be in their shoes living like that? Hey, I would be more than happy to swap places with them.

They can go on nifty walks on their 200-acre properties, play basketball or tennis on their own personal courts, go for a swim in their own spiffy pools, or do a round of golf or maybe even some bowling on their own mini setups, all made possible by their lavish and luxury lifestyles.

But for us mere peons we must stay trapped in our 5km prison and under strict curfew. We dare not travel far from home, and we dare not go outside at 8:01pm for fear of being arrested. Do you really think all these bigwig celebs and politicians have to worry about this for one moment? Um no. They can go for a midnight stroll along their beachfront properties all they like. They can drive as far as they want out into the bush without fear of being stopped by the Covid gestapo.

Guess what Dan? I cannot see the beach and the crashing waves, like so many of you can. I cannot have a liberating stroll through the countryside like so many of you can. I cannot enjoy some laps in my indoor pool like you can. I cannot enjoy the stars at night like you can. So spare us the “we are all in this together” nonsense. You are not and you have never been in this together with us.

And now, these ads! Good grief, talk about rubbing salt into our wounds. More double standards from our clueless elites. Thankfully they are already being widely panned – and they have not even been out all that long. Consider this from one British newspaper:

Daniel Andrews has been blasted over a ‘condescending’ and ‘lame’ ad campaign set to feature The Project host Waleed Aly lecturing Victorians about Melbourne’s lockdown. The campaign also includes Kath and Kim’s Magda Szubanski, AFLW star Tayla Harris, and comedians Shane Jacobson and Nazeem Hussain, who encourage the public to wear masks and stay at home. The ‘Staying Safe is in Our Hands’ Campaign has been widely panned by Victorians, accusing the premier of being ‘tone deaf’ and spreading ‘propaganda’. The first video stars Szubanski reprising her iconic role of Sharon Strzelecki from Kath and Kim. 

And a great piece was just penned on these deplorable ads by James Macpherson. He begins as follows:

Not content with locking citizens in their homes and destroying their livelihoods, the Victorian Government has now employed television’s most dim-witted character to lecture them about their behaviour. An advertising campaign launched at the weekend features comedian Magda Szubanski as the moronic “Sharon”, from Kath and Kim, telling Victorians: “The sooner we obey the rules the sooner this will all be over.”

The ad, which is about as funny as being fined by police for visiting your mum on Mother’s Day, shows Sharon playing a game of netball against herself. “I tell you what, I am so over this lock down,” she huffs. “Playing netball against yourself is not all it’s cracked up to be, especially when you still can’t even win.” This, of course, is hilarious.

Obviously the Andrews Government expects voters – having momentarily forgotten that they are banned from travelling more than 5km from home, or from being out after dark – to be rolling around on their sanitised floors, laughing uncontrollably through their face masks. But then comes the serious part.

The moronic Sharon looks down the camera and tells Victorians in a serious voice: “But you know what, it’s not the lock down that’s the enemy, it’s the virus and the sooner we obey the rules the sooner this will all be over and we can get back to the stuff that really matters ……”

He concludes:

What seems lost on Szubanski, and certainly on the Victorian Government, is that it’s galling to be told “the sooner you obey the rules the sooner you’ll be allowed out of home detention” by a government whose own bungling has spread the virus. And even worse, when the “tut-tut” message is delivered by the stupidest character on Australian television. It implies the long-suffering public, whom Premier Andrews has repeatedly blamed for spreading the virus, are even stupider. It is patronising and it is misguided. 

Yes exactly right James. These lousy ads are just a further waste of our hard-earned tax dollars by these big cheeses who do not have the slightest clue what life is like for the masses – the enslaved grubs like you and me. This is just another example of the ever-widening divide between our arrogant and out of touch political leaders and celebs, and the common man who continues to endure these dreadful imprisonment conditions.

Thanks Dan. Maybe you can put a sock in it as well.

  1. I may have to amend my recent blog post about the crappy ads that we have to endure via our satellite TV from Australia’s north. At least we don’t have to watch the sort of crap that you describe.

  2. notafan

    As soon as

    Yet Dan wants to suspend democracy for another twelve months.

    One of these things is not like the other.

  3. notafan

    More cars on road today. Not many out walking in the middle of the day but those that were were not hesitating to sit on a park bench and enjoy the serenity.

    Mass civil disobedience coming because Herr Dictator if it were a real threat you wouldn’t need you lame as ads.

    Thanks for turning my 84 year old mother into a criminal.

    You moron.

    Auckland lockdown “extended”. Who would have guessed?

  5. the sting

    You are correct Bill and now with this proposal by Premier Andrews to keep us locked down for another year he epitomises the old adage ” that Satan always overplays his hand ”.

  6. Professor Fred Lenin

    Of course the celebrites are not being paid for this public service and the tv channels dont charge for them ,showing an example like the politicians and their public service creatures who are foreging any payment untill the magic vaccine is found .
    Get Obamma to invent it ,he is unemployed and is able to rewrte his failures as wins he is the magic half negro ,Michelle and Hilarity could act as test subjects fo it . They would love to help DANDEMIC DAN afellow marxist fascist.
    Just shows the eelites are really pullong their weight ,especially magda she definately ha the weight.
    One of Jenny Craigs biggest failures .

  7. nb

    When you are sitting in the interrogation chair for some infraction of speech code, mouth bleeding from repeated assault, Waleed Aly will be there to tell you just why you deserve every last pang of pain, and just to admit everything. He’ll be smiling, but have that Obama-ish look about him whereby you know things don’t go so well for refuseniks.

  8. nb

    the sting, #3558576 reminds us of the saying:
    “Satan always overplays his hand ”.
    Thank you for reminding us of this bit of wisdom. It encapsulates hope, and appropriately characterises strong currents in the world.

  9. Entropy

    Wait until Bill realises people making and administering the lockdown decisions have not had their buying power impacted one iota. In fact probably the opposite.

  10. Slim Cognito

    Please tell me this will be limited to broadcast in Victoria and not inflicted on the rest of us non Victorians. I suppose not watching free to air TV might spare me from it.

  11. Victoria WTF …… Sharon’s sharing her wisdom with you . You dumb fucks …. Vote one for Dan !

  12. cuckoo

    So our most beloved celebrities include Waleed Aly? What, couldn’t they get Benjy Law, Rosie Batty, Gillian Triggs, Julian Burnside, Quentin Bryce?

  13. Catcalling Inebriate

    “enslaved grubs”?? “big cheeses”?? What? Bill, by the way, seems to be in the “faith ministry” racket.

  14. Exit Stage Right

    Thank God (not Allah) I don’t live in the formerly Big V.
    Every person that Dan got to do his TV commercials is a Greenie, lefty, both, and hypocrites. None have their income impacted by the policies of this oigle eyed, flappy eared moron who wants to do a Putin and vote himself President for life.
    Qld not far behind, but we only get the scolding walking corpse, Dr Jeanette Young, to tell us we are all doing well but we have to try harder. If we are lucky, we get Anna, who fell into the top job because of her father and does not want to let go of this aphrodisiac power she now wields.
    Is there any place for sanity in this country?

  15. Squirrel

    The infantilising ads are probably meant as reverse psychology – do as you’re told and we’ll (eventually) stop bombarding you with this aggravating shite.

  16. H B Bear

    Being lectured by a fat, unfunny lesbian. I must be in Victoriastan.

  17. Bronson

    Whose paying for the adds……that’s right you and me tax payers of Danistan! As if Dan and Liebor party haven’t completely destroyed the lively hood of nonpublic servant Victorians already. As if the insult of increasing public servants wages while the private sector employees hang on by the skin of their job keeper/seeker payments was’t enough. Now we get to pay for moronic adds telling us to be good little prisoners and we might get some time off our sentence.

  18. notafan

    MELBOURNIANS and EVERYONE:

    Time to email every single MP and let them know we do not consent to Extend The Public Health And Wellbeing Act Emergency Declarations.

    Be polite, don’t swear and try to make it personal and individual.

    Daniel Andrews has all the hallmarks of Huey Long. Who was Huey Long you ask? He was a Louisianan politician who rose to the top of southern politics at a relatively young age to be Governor. There are at least two movies about him including one starring James Cagney and several books. He was assassinated by an aggrieved father as I recall. Initially he presented as hard working and enthusiastic representative of the people, particularly those in the working class. But, as his power grew he became more tyrannical and more corrupt, covering his mistakes with more onerous legislation and restrictions on the populace. He conned the media and then through corruption he owned them, so he was always presented in glowing lights but known in most circles as the Kingfish.
    “Huey Long, in full Huey Pierce Long, (born August 30, 1893, near Winnfield, Louisiana, U.S.—died September 10, 1935, Baton Rouge, Louisiana), flamboyant and demagogic governor of Louisiana and U.S. senator whose social reforms and radical welfare proposals were ultimately overshadowed by the unprecedented executive dictatorship that he perpetrated to ensure control of his home state.” https://www.britannica.com/biography/Huey-Long-American-politician
    Movies :
    All the Kings Men.( still available)
    A Lion is in the Streets, hard to get but maybe available online

    I read that each of the participants was offered two grand (For an hours work?) which they could take or donate to charity. This must be the same as the Chinaman’s increase in salary he gave himself again this year.
    I wonder what charity he donated it to? I am joking the greedy little pig would be putting that in the family trust to minimise his tax.
    As has been pointed out the WA premier ran a law to take money of Clive Palmer retrospectively so the precedent is set. O’Brien had better propose a law to take pensions off anyone who joins in lobbying, works for foreigners or stuffs up. I think that is three strikes against Chop Suey straight away?

  23. Ed Case

    Huey Long was assassinated by his own security.
    At the time, he was challenging FDR, calling him a tool of the bankers.
    He was one of the good guys.
    His son later took his Senate seat. Played by Walter Matthau in JFK [scene with Costner on the plane].

    It may be her obesity and some odd character she is portraying that is the problem. It’s distracting and a silly dialogue.

    Murder of Huey Long
    On September 8, 1935, Weiss confronted and shot Huey Long in the Capitol building in Baton Rouge.[5] At 9:20 p.m., just after passage of the bill effectively removing Judge Pavy, Carl Weiss approached Long, and, according to the generally accepted version of events, fired a single shot with a handgun from four feet (1.2 m) away. Long was struck in the torso. Long’s bodyguards, nicknamed the “Cossacks” or “skullcrushers”,[6] responded by firing at Weiss with their own pistols, killing him; an autopsy found that Weiss had been shot more than sixty times by Long’s bodyguards.[7]

    Just to remind people that there is an online petition on the go to request that Daniel Andrews resigns. It is currently receiving about one signatory a minute with over 13 thousand signatories. If you object to the further lock down and to Daniel Andrews’ over reach then I would encourage you to sign. Also read the comments at the site they are straight to the point. https://www.change.org/p/daniel-andrews-resign?redirect=false

    Can some Vics help me out, I don’t know this Dan and just curious do you believe he is:

    A) Malevolent – eg actively wishes to crush the state and sell the assets to China, or
    B) Daft – utterly clueless with the IQ of a moneys ass and unable to comprehend any problems

    Given his desire to kill babies and fine everyone I’m thinking A but sometimes it’s not an evil plot and just incomprehensible stupidity which is the simpler of the two. Perhaps Dan himself could come on here and advise.

    So this is how Democracy dies….at the hands of a NWO dictator…..suspended parliament, a one Party state, people effectively under house arrest….

    Didnt other dictators also create an artificial “crisis” by burning down the Reichstag and ( ironcally ) blaming the communists?

    And of course He need “emergency powers” to fight these people…..and of course peoples rights would be returned eventually….

    I predict Victorians will eventually completely lose it and Dan best start running…..so to speak.

    They removed Gough when he got a bit power hungry, Dan will go the same way.

    The elites have no idea who the hoi polloi are, if they think the moronic Sharon Strzelecki and the supercilious Waleed Aly are respected voices.
