From the land Down Under, more bastardy:
The Andrews Government is making more bad changes to Victoria’s gun laws.
The latest changes will allow police down to the rank of inspector to ban shooters from holding firearm licences for at least 10 years – for getting nothing more than a speeding fine.
People hit with a ban will also be subjected to warrantless searches of their homes or cars at any time, and barred from going to any place where guns may be stored or used.
Fucking hell, why not just add “public whipping” and “summary execution” to the list?
Textbook totalitarianism. And the person introducing this legal travesty looks precisely how you’d expect them to look:
The only nice thing you could say about her is that her head would look good on a pike.
Next: pikes to be banned under the Sharp Objects And Politician Protection Act.
With all the bollocks surrounding the miracle electric cars and how they’re going to Save The Planet, etc., anyone with half a brain knows that a.) electric cars need lots of juice to run and b.) the current electricity grid — in any country — would not be able to handle the surge in demand should a country (foolishly) decide to abolish gasoline-powered cars by x date (sooner rather than later).
So how would government handle the problem? Step forward the BritGov, with a wonderful idea:
Charging points for electric cars will be preset to turn off for nine hours a day amid fears they could cause blackouts with the government pushing the switch from diesel and petrol.
From May, every new charger will automatically not function at ‘peak times’ to ease the pressure on the national grid.
There is also set to be a ‘randomised delay’ of up to 30 minutes if there is high demand from motorists.
Yeah, that’s going to get just everyone to dump their Jaguars for Priuses, won’t it?
Intrastate travel within Australia is also severely restricted. And the government of South Australia, one of the country’s six states, developed and is now testing an app as Orwellian as any in the free world to enforce its quarantine rules. People in South Australia will be forced to download an app that combines facial recognition and geolocation. The state will text them at random times, and thereafter they will have 15 minutes to take a picture of their face in the location where they are supposed to be. Should they fail, the local police department will be sent to follow up in person. “We don’t tell them how often or when, on a random basis they have to reply within 15 minutes,” Premier Steven Marshall explained. “I think every South Australian should feel pretty proud that we are the national pilot for the home-based quarantine app.”
Holy shit. Frankly, the best response to something this awful is
gunfire I mean mass disobedience. (Gunfire, of course, is not an option because the OzGov has all but disarmed their entire population already.)
Everyone could just refuse to follow instructions to download the app. But what if that was no longer an option because the app would be automatically downloaded when, say, they used Google (and don’t for a moment think that Gurgle wouldn’t cooperate in this)? But if everyone just refused to stay at home, how soon before the “local police forces” ran out of steam and just stopped chasing after these doubleplusungood citizens?
Wouldn’t ever happen, of course, because it appears that Australians long ago decided to lick the chains that enslave them.
Here’s the incomparable Jordan Peterson, talking about a frightening statistic. I urge you to watch it first before continuing to read this post. Read more
Over at the Treehouse, Sundance outlines how We The People have become the enemy of the governing class:
The United States Department of Homeland Security made a quiet and alarming announcement yesterday, creating the official position of the United States Government under the Joe Biden regime. [SEE DHS STATEMENT HERE] According to the statement, if you question the orthodoxy, mandates, or COVID-19 response from the U.S. government, you are now considered a “terrorist”, specifically a “Domestic Violent Extremist” (DVE).
You know, if you treat people as the enemy long enough, and provoke them often enough, they will eventually become exactly what you accused them of at the beginning.
And now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to the range.
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…
