PEACEFUL protesters who gathered in Perth’s CBD yesterday to voice their opposition to unlawful mandatory vaccination have drawn predictable criticism and mockery from the state branch of the AMA. The failing left-wing union now represents only 30 percent of GPs. Amplifying free of charge the rally’s main beef – officialdom’s arrogant extremism – AMA state president, Dr Mark Duncan-Smith, says there is “no argument” that everyone must be vaccinated and that the non-vaccinated are “pro-disease.” This idiotic abuse was bad enough but his sales pitch – “the vaccine is safe, it’s effective” – was contradicted by an accountant on the same bandwagon:
A number of people wearing high-visibility clothing appeared to oppose a recently announced requirement for resources sector workers to have received at least one dose of a COVID vaccine by the start of December…
At the time the policy was announced, Chamber of Minerals and Energy CEO Paul Everingham said workers were free to not get vaccinated.
“But with freedom comes personal responsibility, and with freedom doesn’t come the right to impose your illness on other people,” he said.
“I wouldn’t say there is an obligation on anyone to provide a job to someone who chooses not to have a vaccination.”
Everingham is saying that employers have a right to impose unemployment at will but people have no right to be unvaccinated. Why? Because the unvaccinated will make the vaccinated ill – despite the vaccines being “effective.” It’s instructive to be reminded how bitterly contemptuous of workers corporations really are and how ethically dim their bulbs.
Every week, I decide to stop covering the vaccine wars because I have no intention of losing friends at a time when the rightist like-minded should be more united than ever before. But every week the fascist rhetoric and bizarre irrationality gets worse; it’s too egregious to ignore. On Friday, Katrina Kelly in The Anti-Australian demonstrated how wacko some vaxxer quackers have become. “There is an American website called sorryantivaxxer,” she begins, promoting a schadenfreude porno-site that ridicules the unvaccinated dead. When you’re following Peter FitzSimons – he pulled a Toobin using the same site a month ago – you’re beyond inocculating for malignity.
