 A Police State via the ‘boiling frog syndrome’?

25.07.21.  The pandemic has addled the brains of our leaders as they quickly become self-important dictators in their segregated realms, making a lie out of the song, “we are one!” As declared by top coppers making threats into media cameras, law enforcement is now consolidated to a comprehensive ‘manhunt’ for Covid scofflaws. Each state already has its own police force. But given that maximum resources are now being mustered to catch people without masks and breaking any other of the countless laws to bring Covid criminals to heel. Perhaps the day has come to recruit a parallel squad of ‘flying’ Covid Cops that is solely Covid bound with unlimited “manhunt” powers?
NSW Police will spend hours combing through footage of Saturday’s “freedom” rally to identify about 3500 protesters who flouted health orders and ran riot across the Sydney CBD over the course of three hours, resulting in more than 50 arrests.

Sydney ‘freedom’ protesters condemned, as police begin search for rule-breakers

A crowd which quickly grew to outnumber police gathered at Victoria Park at midday before spilling through the suburban streets of Chippendale and marching to Town Hall and back, bringing traffic on Broadway and George St to a standstill.
Police clashed with protesters leading to 57 arrests and 90 fines being issued, with riot squad officers on foot as well as traffic control, dog and mounted units finally surrounding the group when they reconvened at Victoria Park before dispersing.
Protesters, the majority of whom were not wearing masks, waved Eureka and Australian Red Ensign flags and brandished signs with anti-vaccination and anti-lockdown slogans, while chanting cries of “freedom” and “Aussie, Aussie, Aussie”.
Several people were arrested as thousands of anti-lockdown protesters took to the streets of Sydney’s central business district on Saturday, July 24. This footage, released by police, shows protesters clashing with mounted police officers. Demonstrators were marching in response to COVID-19 restrictions, which were in put place across More
NSW Police Minister David Elliott slammed the protesters as “selfish boofheads” warning that it had the potential to become a superspreading event.
“It will only take one person with Covid-19 to turn to today’s event into a superspreader, so decent-minded Australians have every right to feel infuriated at such selfish behaviour,” he said.
Deputy Commissioner Mal Lanyon said on Saturday night that special task force Strike Force Seasoned had already begun the work of identifying those who attended the protest.
“Our officers have already started to identify attendees and will continue for as long as required to identify and prosecute all those who broke the law today,” he said.
A group of four protesters told The Australian they had travelled from Sydney’s western suburbs to “fight the patriarchy”.
“We’re fighting for freedom, and the patriarchy are not taking over,” one woman in the group said.
“They have made it impossible for us to do anything without silencing us. It’s unorthodox.”
A man dressed in high-vis and a hard hat, who refused to give his real name, told The Australian he was a construction worker who had been stood down during the two week shut down.
“I need to work, I need to feed my family and pay the mortgage,” he said. “Trust me, there are more of me.”
Another man with knuckle tattoos and waving a Eureka flag said he was protesting because he believed the pandemic was a hoax.
“We’re completely f..ked right now, none of this is law, none of these are real rules or anything we’re facing,” he said.
“It’s completely made up media hysteria, is there a test that tells you about the Delta variant, (do we really know how) are they testing the Delta variant.”
Several protesters wore Guy Fawkes masks, while others carried signs with images of Donald Trump, or conspiracy theory slogans including one which said: “ABC News is Zionist propaganda”.
“This is Gene Therapy not vaccine,” one sign said.
Another said: “We’re not anti vaccine, we’re pro choice”.
“There is no virus, it’s a hoax,” one man said, when asked by The Australian why he was protesting on Saturday.
“The carbon dioxide is worse (than the virus).”
“You need to go and do some science lessons,” his female companion said.
A woman climbed on a roof opposite Town Hall holding a sign saying, “No NWO (New World Order) we won’t be manipulated because of lies or false statistics”, which was met with cheers from the crowds.
Some activists in the convoy shouted to passers-by to “join us”, while others declared: “This is for you”.
The protest came to a head at Victoria Park at about 3pm with police encircling a group of devoted rule-breakers, pouncing on those who refused move on orders and cuffing them.
Protesters threw sticks at police breaking out into spontaneous choruses of the national anthem before spilling onto City Road.
A man in a white T-shirt who was walking three large pit bulls on leashes shouted abuse at police and said that “people have been fighting this fight for decades”, while others called to the cops to “join us”.
The man was later seen being arrested and hurled into a divvy van, with one police officer leading his dogs away.
Authorities had earlier this week urged residents in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide to abide by health orders and stay home.
Anti-lockdown activists circulated plans for a “Sydney CBD takeover”on social media and encrypted messaging apps, the event tying in with multiple protests in other major capital cities including Melbourne on Saturday as well as overseas.

    Welcome to 1940s style Germany and Russia ..

    They should have called it a black lives matter protest, then all would have been fine.

    • wal1957 25/07/2021, 9:34 am

      The sad part about your comment is that you are correct.

    • Ian_A 25/07/2021, 10:55 am

      Lol, so true.

  • luk1955 25/07/2021, 7:15 am

    A lot of Vics did not notice that the “health officer nazis” last week openly on TV talked about the new world order. It is now out in the open, and the police are its enforcers. Too bad they don’t chase after the jihadi moozie men the way they chase after peaceful protesters. All across Europe the people are rising up against their hitlers who seek to destroy liberty and freedom for all but themselves. These nwo enforcers think of themselves as gods, but are alien from all human values that have gotten us this far. The halting of peaceful protests will only lead to violent protests and of a far bigger scale as the people wake up to the true intentions of the police who do NOT work for us, but for private companies alien from the state.
    In 2016 Vic Parliament passed legislation enabling police to be sued individually for abuse of power. Here in dictatordan land the police are NOT employees of the state. Due to sec 109 of the Constitution this law can be used in other states to sue the police.
    We are now under the forces of an occupying army, which is really what the police are now. We must all understand now that the police are not there to help us but to enforce the dictates of the hitlers illegally and unlawfully turning our states into concentration camps.
    This conjob plandemic has nothing to do with covid19 now. It is flat out war by the ruling thugs against all of us.

    I wonder how safe some of these police officers feel in their homes at night.

    What has to be remembered is that the police can identify people in a crowd and then hunt them down. The crowd can also identify police officers, whether they be identified by neighbours or followed from the station after their shift.

    It would only take one person to start the war on its formal footing.

    Since the MSM will clearly be on the police side, will their offices be fire bombed in the first weeks of the battle?

    PS. I do not advocate violence, I’m just pointing out to the government foot soldiers that a home is not really your castle and those people that you are being told to identify and arrest may see things just a little bit differently. Be careful.

    The police have lost me – 35 years ago, at my own expense I had bumper stickers made “Support your police – they are the good guys”, but nowadays I’d not assist them in any way, not answer any questions other than the very minimum required by law, not treat them with respect, not even report a crime unless required to make an insurance claim.

    • bob tee 25/07/2021, 8:31 am

      Agree.

    • Lorraine 25/07/2021, 9:13 am

      I have no respect for the Victoria police, in fact I would go so far as to say if I encountered for any reason, I would be scared of them. If they act like thugs, then in my eyes they are just black clothed thugs.

  • Honeybadger 25/07/2021, 8:01 am

    Typical MSM negative report, with lies to boot. More like 20,000 plus, in Sydney, if you watched live steaming. People who have lost livelihoods, homes and have had enough now have nothing left to lose.
    In Melbourne the live stream showed an estimate of 10,000 whilst the Herald Sun reported about a thousand, in one report. It was all very heartening.
    Every courageous person there risked a $1600 lockdown fine so the next march will be even bigger.
    How will these despicable dictators respond, they don’t take kindly to disobedience?

    • Pensioner Pete 25/07/2021, 8:04 am

      HB: When the police resort to live rounds, then it will be on for young and old.

    • Honeybadger 25/07/2021, 8:26 am

      Update: Only anecdotal from poster on FB but sounds true…
      From someone at the Melb FR
      The media literally sat there and didn’t film, I asked why they bothered coming and they said there’s no point filming the size of the crowd as they won’t be allowed to show it.

      • Lorraine 25/07/2021, 9:18 am

        media are complicit….makes one feel very sick

  • Geoff L. 25/07/2021, 8:14 am

    I’m surprised that the MSM even reported at all on the protests.
    I was good to see the crowd heckling the MSM reporters again.

  • Dave 25/07/2021, 9:03 am

    The nsw police have charged a man for supposedly punching a horse. The still photograph looks very convincing. The real footage is all over the internet and the police have it and it clearly shows he didn’t hit it. They have definitely joined the gov and msm in the war against freedom. Everyone will see the footage and be pissed off even more with the TRUMPED up charges. This will get big.

  • Lorraine 25/07/2021, 9:17 am

    on face book last evening was a police media report with over 140 still photos of people in the crowds,,,,,so yes I guess they will hunt them down….pity QR codes will not help them.

    • Austin Ayforti 25/07/2021, 10:01 am

      And every one identified and charged should take it to court to have it thrown out as being an unlawful charge. That’s if it gets to a court before being dropped as the powers that wannabe know when that if the police actions are found to be unlawful the house of cards starts to fall and without any doubt as Ian said, identification and follow up can go both ways.

  • JK. 25/07/2021, 10:12 am

    Words like Gestapo, KGB, Stasi, come to mind when thinking of our police forces in Australia these days acting on orders of the criminal class, the polititians and so called health officials.

  • nev 25/07/2021, 11:02 am

    I borrowed this from another site……. Just to show only 3% of Victorians don’t demand that they be forced to wear masks at all times, even after they are proven to be unhygienic and ineffectual. Why? Because fear and stupidity trump facts and common sense!
    “The three Sydney removalists who sparked Melbourne’s fifth lockdown are unlikely to be charged, the Herald Sun reports.

    The publication said police will be unlikely to penalise the workers except for one fine for not wearing a mask.
    Footage revealed the men were not wearing a mask or socially distancing while delivering furniture to apartment blocks which later infected four people and triggered a statewide lockdown.

    Sources told the Herald Sun the workers have not been found to have broken any other rules, as they travelled as per the conditions of a travel permit which allowed them to deliver furniture from interstate on July 8.

    This comes after a Herald Sun poll found 97 per cent of Victorians wanted the men charged.

    The ladies of laptop land want removalists to have their breathing impeded as they undertake one of the toughest physical jobs there is; they expect these men to be distant from their offsiders and spotters as together they carry, cajole and curse all manner of cumbersome chattels into new digs. And, of course, they want them charged pursuant to a poll. Maybe we’ve been too critical of Kevni and Malcolm’s war on Rupert Murdoch.

  • Ian_A 25/07/2021, 11:07 am

    I can imagine the NSW Police Commissioner meeting with the Premier and Minister for Police, proposing a network of facial recognition street cameras on the strength of this. Golden opportunity. We’ll see what happens.

  • Albert 25/07/2021, 12:01 pm

    Police were at one time respected by the general public but unfortunately that time has passed. There are those whinging about the attacks on police during the recent Sydney demonstrations by thousands of people but the coppers brought it on with their over zealous and thuggish behaviour.
    Watching news clips of that mass demonstration I witnessed coppers on horseback forcing their horses into the crowds and allowing their horses to turn their backs on the crowds. What would those brain-dead coppers do if their horses had lashed out and kicked someone causing catastrophic injuries or even death?
    Then I watched as coppers on foot arrested demonstrators and threw them to the ground. Now, I don’t mind the coppers arresting those who break the law but why is it necessary to have the now usual ‘pile-on’ by anything up to five coppers to pin those being arrested to the ground. Remember, it was not that long ago that a copper, during one of those pile-on arrests, actually stomped on the arrested man’s head and in another instance a person being arrested in Victoria was repeatedly punched about the head while being pinned down by five or so other coppers on his own front lawn.
    If coppers want to act in the manner of thugs then they should be reminded that if you kick an angry dog it will bite you and you will most assuredly deserve it..

  • Albert 25/07/2021, 12:51 pm

    It is a disgrace that not one state premier, nor their government members, have come out to condemn the thuggish conduct of the members of their police forces. Today Andrews, at yet another of those utterly boring and unnecessary daily press conferences, refused to discuss the Victorian Police Force when asked by a reporter.

  • Cliff 25/07/2021, 4:39 pm

    Given the way Australia usually follows the US lead, will July 24th become our Jan 6th with the legal system rabidly pursuing and prosecuting anyone who attended yesterday’s protest rallies?
