Mostly Peaceful Arson

There was a small smoking ceremony and that is something that we had agreed on with a lot of the members who were attending each day as part of a peaceful protest. It then became a little bit out of hand…”

Linda Champion, AFP Commander and idiot, says a fire that today destroyed the original 1927 doors of Old Parliament House and much of its historical portico was lit with the approval of police

    Repair bill extracted from senior police pay.

    This was no ‘accident’ where a smoking ceremony supposedly ‘got out of control’. Evidence such as this below will be quietly ignored and the whole incident will be played down. I hope I am very wrong but I reckon that perpetrators will not be brought to justice.

    Even if it isn’t true, it’s harder to think of a more perfect symbol for modern Australia than a ‘smoking ceremony’ that gets out of control and burns down a parliament.

    And the Age is actually trying to link this to ‘anti-vaxxers’, I kid you not.
    Protesters have been occupying the steps of Old Parliament House, which houses the Museum of Australian Democracy, over the past fortnight. They include well-known influencers from the “freedom movement” who oppose vaccine mandates and lockdowns

    In the meantime, front pages will be given to year-old photos of some nut in a buffalo headdress. Oh, and the AFLW player who has ‘come out’ as ‘non-binary’, yay, brave!

    Off topic, but I did not see it reported much.

    As a result of passing referendum, the NZ government is now in the business of paying doctors to kill its citizens, including COVID patients. I dunno, I’m not deeply religious, and I do follow the general Libertarian view that if a person of sound mind genuinely wants to end it, they have that choice … but in terms of safeguards we really need to ask, “What could possibly go wrong?”

    Feel free to move this to a different thread as appropriate!

    The other footage I saw (forgotten where) this morning is very damming and controversial.
    It shows aboriginal protestors “kettling” the police into a side door.
    Loud, shouty activists actually forcing a dozen or so of the ACTs finest away from the front door, down a set of steps, and into a side door.
    I was embarrassed to be an Australian at that display of cowardice and PC compliance.
    Aboriginal sticks hit together loudly are obviously superior to pepper spray, mace, and physical presence – at least when the ACT top plod is a PC woman.

    It appears the only time the yellow bellied invertebrates occupying blue uniform did anything worthwhile was well after the fire had taken hold and the firies needed protection from the “let it burn” mob. Too little, too late.

    I’m hoping that becomes a national symbol of derision, in the same way “largely peaceful protests” and “Lets go Brandon” have become household sayings with deep meaning.

    One of the most successful methodologies developed by the original inhabitants of Australia was managing the landscape using fire. I see that ability has not diminished.

  9. C.L. says:

    Tel, in a way I agree that a person should be free to kill himself; I mean, in the sense that the state should not be tying him to a bed and curtailing his liberty – even if he is considered likely to do so.

    But VAD is not suicide. It is the commissioning of a state-licensed doctor to kill you.

    …in terms of safeguards we really need to ask, “What could possibly go wrong?”

    A lot. Especially, making the decision on ‘compassionate’ grounds for those incapable of doing so. Families wanting an estate. Old people increasingly being primed by politicians and society to see themselves as a burden. The push to extend the ‘right’ to be killed to the mentally ill or even the not ill at all.

    The story has already disappeared from the front page of the Age website.

    Last year I took my old mum to the Wesley for an op. We got chatting to one of the staff while checking in and he told us that the hospital had been forced to take measures to eliminate, or at least reduce as much as possible, the increasingly common practice of granny dumping. I was a bit shocked, tbh, that this had become a thing.

    Not last year, earlier this year. I’m already thinking 2022.

    Interesting and enlightening to compare the reaction to this incident vis-à-vis the January 6 “insurrection” in Washington, D.C. (where nearly all the violence and thuggishness came from security guards).
    One can only imagine the absolutely furious reaction had someone at the old Parliament House opened fire at, let alone killed an Aboriginal protester (à la Ashley Babbitt, who was doing no harm to anyone) setting the place alight.
