Let’s Test That, Shall We?

From a RedState article about the OzGov’s little totalitarian exercise in Covid lunacy, and the Aussie public’s abject submission:

Now, Australia’s Minister For Health has announced that 24,000 students will be herded into a stadium in Sydney to be vaccinated by the government by force. It should be noted that Australia has had strict vaccination laws since at least 2018. Parents can receive heavy fines and lose welfare benefits if they refuse to comply with the traditional vaccination schedule.
What sets this order apart is that Australian parents have been notified they will not be allowed to accompany their children into the stadium. In effect, children will be forcibly removed from the presence of their parents and injected by government agents.

The police? Somehow it doesn’t seem any more comforting that a law enforcement agent will be the one “escorting” your child to a forced medical procedure.
Imagine for one second the American military knocking on your door and escorting your children out to receive a treatment you may not feel confident about and they may not want at all.
It blows the mind that such a proud people like the Australians would so willingly submit to outright totalitarianism. To say it is disappointing is an understatement.
It makes one wonder if the current state of the American spirit is prepared to withstand any similar incursions from our own government.

The difference is that the Australian government has succeeded in disarming their population, or restricted firearms ownership and use to such a degree that there’s little difference.  But over here?  Hmmm…

While I can’t speak for all Americans, of course, I am willing to bet that there are at least half a million Americans who would resist, violently, any attempt by the State to abduct their children.  The resulting carnage would be impressive, either way.

And then what?  Does the State honestly think that when the news about this gets out — and it would — that we’d become like the lickspittle Australians and meekly surrender?

Ah don’ theenk so, Lucy.  But hey, as the title suggests…


  1. I hope you’re right, Kim.

    I’ve already been sadly disappointed by the responses of many of my fellow citizens. Dennis Prager states it better than I’m capable of.

    “When I see people walking outside, often alone with no one anywhere near them, wearing a mask, my primary reactions are disappointment and sadness.

    I am disappointed because I expected better from my fellow Americans. I never thought most Americans would be governed by irrational fears and unquestioning obedience to authority. I have come to realize that I had a somewhat romanticized view of my countrymen.”

    – Dennis Prager

    1. Capitulating into wearing a mask is NOT the same thing as turning over your children.

      That said, I disagree with the premise. The government doesn’t need to go door-to-door to collect your children. Most of them are already willingly turned over to the government every weekday morning. They’re rounded up with big yellow government owned vehicles and transported to government owned facilities for 8 or more hours per day, willingly by most parents who are happy to have “free” babysitting.

  2. Remember, Australia started out as a penal colony so their history is based on compliance with authority.

    1. As we’ve seen in Afghanistan, the pattern of collapse is very slowly at first, and then all of a sudden.

      This is not going to end well, and it will be sooner than we want.

  3. Thought experiment time:

    Would a reasonable person kill, or administer a beating to prevent someone from giving their kid an ice cream cone?

    Let’s stipulate complete lack of harm: no poisons of GPS nano-trackers (which are NOT a thing), no creeps sniffing hair, no hidden indoctrination, no health concerns for the kid, nothing. Just a mandatory day where the government escorts your child into an arena, gives him a wholesome ice cream cone, and then returns him to mom’s loving arms.

    Because that’s kind of where we are in this. There is a broad consensus that ice cream and C19 Vax is a universal good, and that resistance is unreasonable if not incomprehensible.

    The degree to which the above is true is a measure of how far lost the concept of individual sovereignty over one’s mind, body and works is.

  4. I think it is not that bad.
    The compulsory injections do not apply to Covid. More to polio etc
    I have not heard of any plans to hijack children and innoculate them. Au contraire, when a Sydney school got more than its quota, there was a lot of complaining about unfairness
    Apart from some employers insisting their workforce get a jab, there is no compulsion. Even many of the health workers have avoided the jab
    Situation normal – politicians running around like headless chooks
    Cheers from Oz

  5. Nah, that’s bogus. Things are bad enough here without exaggerating like that. However, govt has decreed that employers CAN demand their employees vaccinate or lose their job. And lockdowns will continue unless 80% of Ozzies have both shots! NSW lockdowns have just been extended until end of September at least. WA (Western Australia, not Washington State) has completely shut its border to NSW from next Thursday; no exemptions. If you live here and are trying to get home, tough titties.

    Protests? You bet, though not reported in the media. But police are using CCTV to hand out $5000 fines to attendees, vehicle registration plates are scanned to ensure people are not out of their “allowed” areas, police have been told that their first priority is enforcing public health orders, not other crime.

    Anyway …
