For world’s vaxxer tyrants, curated “death threat” panic marks a Ceaușescu moment

DESPERATE to wrest the moral initiative away from huge protests against Daniel Andrews’ Führer Forever Bill, last week reporters and Labor politicians swooped on a spray-can in Melbourne like it was Lee Oswald’s Carcano. Nor did the Premier squander the break. With the finest sincerity a PR budget can buy, he imparted best wishes to the ‘hospitalised’ son of Animal Justice Party MP Andy Meddick and condemned politically motivated violence. Except there was no politically motivated violence – none by the crack shot who left Kielan Meddick with a minor head gash anyway. Trans ‘woman’ Meddick was defacing posters in Fitzroy St on Thursday night when a man took issue with the vandalism and an argument ensued. Police established that Meddick then threw a can of spray paint at the man and walked off – only to have the missile returned with superior accuracy. At the same time, twitter skip riflers also established that Meddick had a record of vile left-wing rhetoric, including incitement to murder George Pell. That should have been a more serious matter than the prop gallows that sent Anthony Albanese rushing for the microphones.

Itself under fire from protesters for Annastacia Palaszczuk’s depraved policy of socially liquidating the unvaccinated, the Queensland Labor government – sensing a handy distraction was live and viable – clambered aboard the doomed Meddick train the following day. The Premier’s team of thirty full-time media spinners got to work crafting a good old ‘death threats’ and sympathy news cycle for the weekend papers. Keppel MP Brittany Lauga got things started on Friday, betweeting that she’d received a “threatening” email about the government’s vaccination mandates.

For the thickset and popular Saturday Courier Mail, a by-line featuring the names of no fewer than five journalists topped an account of how it had been “revealed” (by the government itself) that “MPs have been subject to horrifying threats relating to their vaccination mandate stance.” For Saturday morning’s covid-19 press conference, Education Minister Grace Grace and Attorney-General Shannon Fentiman were theatrically guarded by “several police officers.” By Sunday, the Health Minister was up. At a press conference north of Brisbane, Yvette D’Ath claimed she too had been threatened; she too was now accompanied by what the ABC described as a “security detail” – one of whom was also available for pictures. Because the public reads men complaining about nasty emails as overwrought sissies, no non-damsel MPs were seconded to contribute to the campaign. The ladies of Labor haven’t always been this fragile, as a 2017 column by Des Houghton illustrates.

Annastacia’s mates: “I’ll attack you with a crowbar” and “I’ll f—ing rape your kids, c—”

In September 2020, former Chief Health Officer, now Governor, of Queensland, Jeannette Young, was deservedly criticised for refusing a 26-year-old Canberra nurse’s plea to leave hotel quarantine to attend her father’s funeral. At the time, the state government’s dogmatic ‘border control’ policies were snowballing into a broader reputational crisis for the Premier. Within days, reports appeared that Dr Young had “police officers outside her home” after receiving death threats. This time, a 43 year-old returned serviceman was charged and convicted a year later for using a carriage service to send a threat. The case demonstrates that officials can indeed be unlawfully abused and police may have to step in. It does not demonstrate that Labor’s recourse to exaggerating when its leaders are held to account for their own extremism is anything other than risible misdirection.

The Australian media can ignore it as long as they like but the anti-lockdown-cum-anti-mandates movement is now the biggest protest phenomenon in the world and will only get bigger. As states ban and abuse the non-boosted, periodically incarcerate the “fully vaccinated,” misuse police and military powers, orchestrate demonisation campaigns of the kind essayed here and begin forcing themselves on children and babies like entitled molesters, hundreds of thousands will sign on for the fight. From Vienna to Darwin, leaders have become deranged with an ensemble of compulsive pathologies not seen since the drift into world war in the Edwardian Age. It’s pleasing to say that they do remind me now of Romania’s last communist dictator trying to cajole his former subjects into the obedience of olden days. He realised it was all over as the rocks landed on the balcony. It happened very quickly. Reality always does.

    Des Houghton opinion: Palaszczuk and Fentiman wear their feminism like a cheap perfume.

    THE royal commission was told CFMEU strongman John Setka once threatened a Melbourne worker with the words: “I hate the c—. I’m going to come down there, rip his head off, sh — down his throat and bury his head next to Ned Kelly’s.”

    Setka’s threat was perhaps one of the worst examples of workplace intimidation seen in this country. That is, until last week, when his pals in the CFMEU in Queensland were caught on security tapes threatening to rape children.

    “I’ll attack you with a crowbar” and “I’ll f—ing rape your kids c—”, said one.

    Later, a girl was labelled a “f—ing whore” on social media because her family refused to go on strike at Glencore’s Oaky North mine at Tieri in central Queensland.

    Shamefully, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk failed to condemn the CFMEU.

    She dodged the question and trotted out her old line about unacceptable behaviour. She told Parliament her Government would not change the law to stop the CFMEU funding Labor.

    Shannon Fentiman, the Minister for the Prevention of Domestic Violence and Minister for Women, likewise failed to condemn the threats against women and children.

    Fentiman and Palaszczuk not only betrayed the workers, they betrayed the sisterhood. Where is the feminist outrage?

    Ros Bates, the shadow minister for Child Safety told the House: “What have we heard from Shannon Fentiman following those threats to rape children, bash people with crowbars and physically harm others because they do not bow to their demands? Nothing! The silence is deafening.

    “It seems that silence can be bought if you are a member of the Labor Party and the unions are willing to open their pockets for you.

    “The minister has a duty to call out the despicable comments by the CFMEU or explain why she will not.

    “Until she condemns the CFMEU she shows what we all know: she is a fraud, a phony and a failure.”

    Opposition Deputy Leader Deb Frecklington revealed her family had been abused by unionists.

    “As a mother of three daughters who have been targeted by the unions I was sickened that our female Premier did not have the guts, the leadership or the courage to call this thuggery out,” she said.

    Frecklington railed against Labor MP and CFMEU life member Jim Pearce for defending the unionists.

    “How dare he come into this House and actually defend those vile human beings who threatened rape to our children,” she said.

    It’s not the first time Labor’s feminists have ignored the threats that spill so easily from the mouths of CFMEU thugs.

    Much of it has been tendered in court cases or alleged in Parliament.

    A sampler:

    “What the f— is he doing,­ f—ing moron.

    “Hey scabby, gay boy, gay boy, gay boy, scabby.

    “It’s amazing what people become, once a f—ing union delegate hey, that piece of sh-t there, used to be a union delo.

    “You should f— off back inside. F—ing parasite.

    “He used to run with us?

    “ F—ing hell.

    “Lowest sort of f—ing dog ever.

    “Think you would know better than to go against the union.”

    That exchange ended in the Federal Court with the CFMEU fined $545,000 for unlawful, intimidating and coercive conduct on a Brisbane building site.

    Back in Parliament, Jarrod Bleijie, the Opposition industrial relations spokesman, said the Labor Party was owned “lock stock and barrel” by the unions. Agreed.

    And he reminded the House how the Palaszczuk Government withdrew Queensland police from a federal taskforce investigating union corruption.

    Clearly embarrassed, Palaszczuk looked away.

    The Morrison Government’s agenda has been derailed by chaos as Queensland senators joined others to pledge to block legislation unless vaccine mandates were banned.

    The Morrison Government’s agenda in the final sitting fortnight has been derailed by chaos as Queensland senators pledge to make good on promises to block legislation unless vaccine mandates were banned.

    Five Coalition Senators have already crossed the floor amid fiery debate, in which Prime Minister Scott Morrison was branded “weak”, while Senator Jacqui Lambie described accepting the consequences for choosing not to be vaccinated “being a goddamn, bloody adult”.

    Two Coalition Senators, Queensland’s Gerard Rennick and SA’s Alex Antic, will go further and abstain from voting for government bills, while One Nation reaffirmed its plans to vote against them, unless the Federal Government intervenes in state government restrictions on unvaccinated people.

    It will effectively block any contested government bills getting through by abstaining from votes.

    Senators Matt Canavan, Sam McMahon and Concetta Fierravanti-Wells, who supported the One Nation bill, are not withholding their votes on other matters.

    The already controversial Religious Discrimination Bill, requirements for voters to bring ID to elections and a crackdown on registered charities engaging in unlawful acts of trespass, vandalism or threatening behaviour are all at risk from the vote blockade.

    The first test for the rebel Senators was expected to come up on Monday night, when a national security bill goes up for debate, though it is set to pass with Labor’s support.

    Senator Rennick confirmed last night he would be abstaining from government legislation, including the religious discrimination laws, saying mandates were like “holding a gun” to people’s heads.

    “This is no longer about health, but politicians grabbing power for the sake of power,” he said.

    The Opposition will seek to wedge the rebel Coalition Senators this week, with Queensland Senator Murray Watt saying this week would be a test for Senators Hanson and Gerard Rennick about “whether their word means anything”.

    “If Pauline Hanson and Gerard Rennick back down and decide to vote with the government on legislation over the next fortnight, then it just shows that their word means nothing at all,” he said.

    Appearing via video link on Monday, Senator Hanson moved a private members bill seeking to ban vaccine mandates enforced by state governments, including Queensland.

    “This is what the Labor Governments are doing to undermine the Morrison Government so the PM is seen as weak,” Senator Hanson said.

    “And I’ll say it, the Prime Minister is weak.”

    Tasmania Senator Jacqui Lambie said the vaccine mandates were about protecting the community and pushed back against One Nation’s proposed bill.

    “Being held accountable for your own actions is not discrimination, it’s called being, would you believe it, a goddamn, bloody adult,” she said.

    huge demonstrations, That would be 100k not 10k so your maths are unsound yet again.
    The new Victorian bill which I think needs more parliamentary oversight is better than what we have in NSW.
    Also we need to show we are vaxxed twice in NSW to get a cup of coffee until we reach the 95% mark.

    As for why people should be vaxxed see HERE and HERE

    Non Compos Mentis

    You’re baaack!

    Found that evidence that I not only was never near a university, but that I also didn’t finish primary school yet? You could simply apologise for a stupid over-reaction, but I doubt that you are mentally capable of that.

    In an earlier thread, you said that you do not have a Linked In page. Just to ensure that I am not unfairly focusing on the wrong person, please confirm that you are NOT the person employed at Macquarie University, with an MEc and MBA, who is listed on Linked In. I would hate to confuse you with a respectable academic.

    PS, if you think that there were only 10,000 demonstrators last weekend, you are mathematically challenged.

  5. Rex Anger says:

    Could you possibly be any more blatant, shill?

    Also we need to show we are vaxxed twice in NSW to get a cup of coffee until we reach the 95% mark.

    Boo hoo, Homer Paxton. Shills and shitwits like you wanted the big, strong… [Guiding Hand] of government, and you’ve got it good and hard.

    The little people have very clearly declared that they do not share your fetish for being ‘governed.’ And that backlash is only going to get stronger, the more it persists.

    Enjoy the Indian Summer of Covid-totalitarianism while it lasts, bugman. You’ll be back to your long, dark winter of leftwit discontent soon…

  6. Boambee John says:

    Rex A

    Interesting that the biggest supporters of fascism in Australia now are the parties of the (nominal) political left. Going back to their roots?

  7. Not Trampis says:

    I see so the proposed Victorian bill being a lot better than we have in NSW and I suspect in almost any other state is being shill. In NSW the Minister can do almost anything he /she wants. Funny how that is ignored

    I am not complaining about showing proof. Merely showing up the hypocrisy of CL yet again.
    JC you never could count. How many have been vaxxed?

    I have never had anything to do with Linked In. If I had I would have put in financial markets and funds management not banking.

    Police estimate 10k and there were plenty of nutjobs carrying signs about Qanon and the 14th amendment neither of which have any relevance here.
    If you support people being unvaxxed you have no regrad for the sancity ofl ife.

  8. Lee says:

    The rally held in Melbourne on the weekend was vastly bigger than 10k, you shill for Dictator Dan.
    Reliable estimates put it at least 250,000-300,000, if not more.

    If you support people being unvaxxed you have no regrad for the sancity ofl ife.

    I support their right to being unvaccinated.
    I support their human rights ahead of coercive medical fascists.

    As usual, your spelling and grammar “skills” are atrocious.

    Non Compos Mentis

    I have never had anything to do with Linked In. If I had I would have put in financial markets and funds management not banking.

    Stop evading the question. Are you or are you not the Homer Paxton with an MEc and MBA, employed at Macquarie University?

    PS, I am well aware that Linked In raises “bogus” pages using information gained from the web, hoping that “clients” will add more details, which they can then profit from. They did it to me years ago, but I cancelled the page. Have they also done it to you?

  10. Boambee John says:

    Non Compos Mentis

    Police estimate 10k

    ROFLMAO. And you tout that around as reliable? Did you look at any of the visuals?

    I can remember a time when the political left distrusted any police announcement as a matter of principle. How the so-called “progressives” have fallen!

  11. Not Trampis says:

    they cannot be reliable estimates. Even on TV from another States it is very easy to know it wasn’t a bullroar near that number.
    I have given you some links to read because you are very ignorant. Read them. The secular left do support such rights over potential deaths as can be seen here. This is more important the vaccinations so children go to daycare and they are compulsory.
    If you are again vaccinations then you must be again those as well. Funny how you are mute on the power in NSW for example

    I am evading nothing. I said I had no linked in page and I do not.

  12. Rex Anger says:

    I see so the proposed Victorian bill being a lot better than we have in NSW and I suspect in almost any other state is being shill. In NSW the Minister can do almost anything he /she wants.

    You clearly haven’t read Dan’s Enabling Act then.

    A low-information ‘academic.’ How utterly unsurprising…

    they cannot be reliable estimates

    Police estimate 10k

    If you support people being unvaxxed you have no regrad for the sancity ofl ife.

    Listen to it scream…

  13. Lee says:

    they cannot be reliable estimates. Even on TV from another States it is very easy to know it wasn’t a bullroar near that number.

    So you know much better than observers and people who were actually at the huge protest in Melbourne, because you saw it on TV from another state?

    According to your great conceit, that must make it true!

    As has been said, looking at the size of the crowd from drone (not MSM) footage it would easily fill the MCG at least three times (3 x 95,000) over.

    To quote John, above, “ROFLMAO”!

  14. Boambee John says:

    Non Compos Mentis

    they cannot be reliable estimates. Even on TV from another States it is very easy to know it wasn’t a bullroar near that number.

    You are quite correct, it was certainly not within a bull’s roar of 10,000, it was many times that. I hope that your facility with these numbers is not indicative of your facility with them when discussing “financial markets and funds management”.

    This is more important the vaccinations so children go to daycare and they are compulsory.

    Please translate this appallingly composed sentence into coherent English, if you are capable of doing so.

    I am evading nothing. I said I had no linked in page and I do not.

    Since you refuse to clarify the issue, I am forced to assume that you are indeed the Homer Paxton employed at Macquarie University. I will avoid any graduates of that institution who might claim to offer financial advice.

    Still no retraction of your baseless allegations against me, nor any apology. Not surprising really. So-called “progressives” tend to avoid accepting personal responsibility.

  15. Boambee John says:

    Apology to readers

    Having read more recent comments by Non Compos Mentis/Not Trampis on other threads, I must change the opinion expressed in my comment above at 1606 on 23 November.

    It is not possible that such a narrow minded, incurious, ignorant individual could be an academic at Macquarie University. Clearly there are two Homer Paxtons in Australia. One is an academic at Macquarie University, the other is an uneducated person who cannot either write a coherent sentence or even punctuate the incoherent sentences he writes.
